:01:11.:01:19.

Good evening and welcome to the programmd.

:01:20.:01:22.

Operation Daybreak began we can reveal that an historic child

:01:23.:01:34.

But some former residents are accusing the authorities

:01:35.:01:40.

And now one case has been referred to the Independent

:01:41.:01:45.

This exclusive report from our Social Affairs

:01:46.:01:50.

Anger boiling over after allost 50 years as campaigners forced a

:01:51.:02:14.

Nottinghamshire City Council meeting to be cancelled earlier this week.

:02:15.:02:19.

Mickey Summers said that he was physically and mentally abused as he

:02:20.:02:22.

was passed around the care system and now he wants someone held to

:02:23.:02:28.

account. I was a plaything. I was raped by a social worker in a car

:02:29.:02:37.

park. It terrifies me and h`unts me. Mickey was 12 when he was sdnt to

:02:38.:02:41.

the old Beachwood children's home. It has now emerged that Operation

:02:42.:02:47.

Daybreak has investigated ehght other establishments. At le`st 3

:02:48.:02:54.

homes have been named in a compensation claim, all homds where

:02:55.:02:59.

children claim they were abtsed It is more than a decade since Mickey

:03:00.:03:04.

Summers first went to the police and he is convinced they should have

:03:05.:03:09.

done more. This will now be investigated by the Independent

:03:10.:03:11.

Police Complaints Commission. I believe they were not interdsted.

:03:12.:03:16.

They thought I was a little boy crying wolf. They associate kids

:03:17.:03:21.

with attention seeking. I fdel like they have abused me for the last ten

:03:22.:03:26.

and a half years. I don't c`re if individuals are deceased. M`ke

:03:27.:03:32.

someone corporately account`ble Beachwood is one of five holes still

:03:33.:03:37.

being investigated but after so many years, some suspects have dhed and

:03:38.:03:39.

so far there have been no prosecutions.

:03:40.:03:48.

For more on this, let's cross to Jeremy now. Has there been `ny

:03:49.:03:50.

response? I've had confirmation tonight that

:03:51.:04:04.

Mickey Summers papers were destroyed in 1978.

:04:05.:04:08.

But that's been very diffictlt, because his records were destroyed

:04:09.:04:10.

They have apologised to Mickey Summers for the fact is records have

:04:11.:04:26.

been destroyed and they say that all allegations of child abuse will

:04:27.:04:29.

always be treated extremely seriously.

:04:30.:04:31.

One man is dead and another seriously injured in hospit`l

:04:32.:04:33.

after a stabbing in Ilkeston in Derbyshire this morning.

:04:34.:04:36.

Police were first called to an armed robbery then to

:04:37.:04:38.

Friends have described the lan who was killed as a lovely person

:04:39.:04:42.

Parents took their children to school as normal this morning, many

:04:43.:04:58.

of them unaware that this Dhsney Street in Ilkeston had becole the

:04:59.:05:03.

focus of a murder enquiry. Police were called to this shop at 5:3 am

:05:04.:05:09.

to reports of an armed robbdry. Just ten minutes later, police rdceived

:05:10.:05:15.

reports to say that two men had been stabbed at a nearby propertx. A 30

:05:16.:05:20.

Road man was found deceased and there were two other individuals in

:05:21.:05:24.

that address. One was arrested and one has very serious injurids.

:05:25.:05:29.

Batman is being treated for life`threatening injuries at the

:05:30.:05:37.

Queens medical Centre. `` that man. The man has been blamed loc`lly as

:05:38.:05:41.

Paul Averill. He had lived here for three or four years `` the lan has

:05:42.:05:49.

been named locally. Colleagtes described him as an incredible

:05:50.:05:54.

person. It is a tragic loss. So one fair. The only thing I can say is

:05:55.:06:00.

that he might have disturbed something. From what we havd pieced

:06:01.:06:06.

together from the news it sounds to me that from the kind of person he

:06:07.:06:12.

was, he has disturbed something going on in the shop. There was a

:06:13.:06:19.

police car with a bat and trying to get in. They gained access `nd led

:06:20.:06:24.

the way a lad in handcuffs `nd also took away a man in an ambul`nce were

:06:25.:06:31.

then asked `` an oxygen mask on We are keeping a very open mind about

:06:32.:06:37.

these incidents, although they are in very close but 70. They `re

:06:38.:06:45.

investigating exactly what happened here to leave one man dead `nd

:06:46.:06:53.

another seriously injured. Still to come this evening, a look

:06:54.:06:58.

at the weather with Anna. High`pressure continues to dominate

:06:59.:07:02.

for the rest of the week so you can expect it to stay dry and sdttled

:07:03.:07:05.

but I am not promising wall to wall sunshine.

:07:06.:07:11.

Two families say they could have died after they were gassed

:07:12.:07:14.

by thieves while sleeping in their motor homes.

:07:15.:07:17.

The robbers apparently used potentially deadly

:07:18.:07:20.

The thieves struck at a French motorway service area and escaped

:07:21.:07:25.

The families have since heard that it's happened to other families too.

:07:26.:07:32.

Safely back in Derby but sthll upset by recent events, these two couples

:07:33.:07:52.

used this motorhome in France this summer. As they drove on thd auto

:07:53.:08:01.

route 71, they stopped for ` rest. Darren made sure the doors were

:08:02.:08:05.

securely closed and then thdy all fell unusually soundly asledp. The

:08:06.:08:11.

next thing we know, I looked up and saw a car that is all I can

:08:12.:08:16.

remember. So you passed up there and then? `` you passed out? We had all

:08:17.:08:27.

been robbed. They realised that a suitcase and some keys had been

:08:28.:08:34.

stolen. I noticed more and lore things had gone missing. Thd

:08:35.:08:40.

families alerted the police and were taken to hospital. Blood tests

:08:41.:08:45.

confirmed they had been poisoned with carbon monoxide or othdr

:08:46.:08:49.

poisonous gas. We realised we had been gassed and robbed becatse of

:08:50.:08:54.

the way we felt. We were told that if there were children in the

:08:55.:08:57.

vehicle, they wouldn't have survived. It does make us fdel that

:08:58.:09:03.

we were very, very lucky. The families say they think French

:09:04.:09:09.

police piped gas under the van and then broke in through the front

:09:10.:09:14.

passenger van and stole ?2000 of clothes and valuables whilst the

:09:15.:09:18.

occupants were unconscious. Similar incidents have been reported in

:09:19.:09:24.

France. We could have been killed. It has got to stop otherwisd it will

:09:25.:09:27.

keep going on and on until someone dies. The caravan and camping club

:09:28.:09:35.

have said their members havd not reported any incidents but stress it

:09:36.:09:39.

is most safe to use caravan parks rather than service stops. Both

:09:40.:09:46.

families say they will not return to France while the threat rem`ins

:09:47.:09:51.

Two men are in hospital aftdr a police pursuit in Leicestdr.

:09:52.:09:54.

It happened last night on Welford Road in the city.

:09:55.:09:56.

The area was closed overnight and this morning while

:09:57.:09:59.

Police say they were following a car when it crashed

:10:00.:10:04.

The scale of budget cuts facing Leicestershire

:10:05.:10:13.

County Council is growing, despite four years of austerity

:10:14.:10:15.

The authority says it now ndeds to find ?120 million over five years,

:10:16.:10:20.

which is ?40 million more than it initially had to save.

:10:21.:10:26.

The county council says it's always been underfunded compared

:10:27.:10:28.

Generally speaking, they ard both significantly better off th`n us.

:10:29.:10:41.

The way the formula works and also their mix of dwellings, which means

:10:42.:10:46.

they can collect more counchl tax than we can. You are watching East

:10:47.:10:50.

Midlands today on the BBC. Next tonight, he was one

:10:51.:10:54.

of Rutland's best known characters. Undertaker Teddy Toon wanted to

:10:55.:10:57.

leave his half a million pound fortune to what he

:10:58.:10:59.

thought was three good causds. But nearly eight years

:11:00.:11:02.

after the 96 year old's death, the NHS still hasn't spent `ll

:11:03.:11:04.

its share of his estate. Teddy's friends are frustrated

:11:05.:11:07.

and have complained about what they From Rutland, our Health

:11:08.:11:09.

Correspondent, Rob Sissons reports. A colourful character, and tpping

:11:10.:11:35.

undertaker for 50 years, he built his own coffin. He would invite

:11:36.:11:44.

people to come round have a look at them `` look at it and they couldn't

:11:45.:11:49.

move it. With the strength of a man in his 20s, a man in his 20s, eager

:11:50.:11:53.

to. When he died, he left after million pounds `` when he dhed, he

:11:54.:12:04.

left half ?1 million to loc`l good causes and best friend is

:12:05.:12:09.

disappointed it hasn't been spent. He gave a ?50 Christmas present to

:12:10.:12:16.

every person over 80 in Rutland every year, gave money to a local

:12:17.:12:23.

care home and a third of thd money went to the NHS but they have only

:12:24.:12:29.

spent ?38,000 of the money they were given on a memorial garden. We are

:12:30.:12:35.

unhappy with the nation of plastic grass and certainly the nothon that

:12:36.:12:40.

additional money might be spent on works of art. For Ted's successor,

:12:41.:12:47.

the delay has taken some of the shine off of his giving. Perhaps it

:12:48.:12:58.

is a lesson that you should be more specific when you leave mondy. The

:12:59.:13:04.

hospital said they have now got ?10,000 interest and they h`ve

:13:05.:13:12.

apologised, saying they will meet up with the executors of the world to

:13:13.:13:17.

discuss how the rest of the money will be spent. Teddy's friends say

:13:18.:13:23.

they are concerned there max be a lot more hoops to jump throtgh.

:13:24.:13:25.

Plans to conduct a trial of a new fixed camera to enforce the

:13:26.:13:28.

workplace parking levy in Nottingham are being branded a waste of money

:13:29.:13:31.

Nottingham City Council wants to use a stationary camera at the Riverside

:13:32.:13:36.

Retail Park to see if it's ` more efficient way of monitoring larger

:13:37.:13:40.

The number plate recognition technology will cost almost ?67 000.

:13:41.:13:52.

Work to replace a 135 U Road Bridge in Derby has taken a huge step

:13:53.:13:59.

forward. The new railway brhdge has been built on site already to be

:14:00.:14:05.

moved into site `` onto poshtion. The new bridge will be able to cope

:14:06.:14:10.

with more traffic when it opens around Christmas.

:14:11.:14:16.

Now, you might have two wait until next summer to drive along the newly

:14:17.:14:21.

widened a 453 but people will be allowed to run along it latdr this

:14:22.:14:27.

month. They will be able to take part in the charity run and

:14:28.:14:31.

contractors say it is a way of thanking those living nearbx for

:14:32.:14:34.

putting up with all that work. Sometimes it might be the c`t to run

:14:35.:14:42.

than walk. Now, guilty or not guilty?

:14:43.:14:48.

Researchers in Nottingham h`ve discovered suspects can be given

:14:49.:14:54.

away by their eyes. Equipment is being tested out that could identify

:14:55.:14:59.

murderers. Duncan is becoming a murderer. By watching this, he knows

:15:00.:15:08.

the student he struggled with and it is normal `` it is now all hn his

:15:09.:15:15.

head. What we are about to see is how his eyes will give him `way Now

:15:16.:15:21.

we have calibrated Jew, we will go into the test and you will see a

:15:22.:15:27.

clip from the CCTV camera showing the murderer escaping from the

:15:28.:15:38.

scene. The white race here shows they are diverting a lot of

:15:39.:15:43.

attention to the knife. The murderer has very small circles to the knife,

:15:44.:15:48.

so they cannot help but look at it, but they are not looking at it for

:15:49.:15:52.

anywhere near as long as thd innocents. What researchers also

:15:53.:15:58.

found was that an innocent person would file `` read a statemdnt about

:15:59.:16:04.

what had happened much more slowly than a guilty person would, as they

:16:05.:16:08.

would avoid words like stab or murder. He says methods likd the

:16:09.:16:16.

polygraph can be cheated. There are lots of different eye movemdnts we

:16:17.:16:21.

can use to try to detect crhme. The research might be long going but it

:16:22.:16:30.

is worth keeping an eye on. Well. There you are. Staying with

:16:31.:16:37.

facial things, still to comd, get a handle on this.

:16:38.:16:43.

Yes, this moustache and beard combo are Michael's pride and joy but is

:16:44.:16:51.

it the best in Britain? In the lexicon of the top

:16:52.:16:55.

mathematicians of all time, the name George Green is unlikely to spring

:16:56.:17:04.

to mind. But this humble Miller from `` this humble person should do

:17:05.:17:11.

Einstein revered him and 107 years after his death, an exhibithon is

:17:12.:17:17.

celebrating his life. Green's mill is one of the lost

:17:18.:17:24.

familiar landmarks in Nottingham but what is often forgotten is that the

:17:25.:17:28.

man who owned it was a brilliant mathematician. He has a memorial

:17:29.:17:37.

next to Faraday and Einstein revered him. That does not happen unless you

:17:38.:17:45.

are special. His descendants came together at the University of

:17:46.:17:48.

Nottingham for the first falily get`together in 20 years.

:17:49.:17:59.

Unfortunately none of his mathematician skills have gone down

:18:00.:18:07.

the years. He is an absolutdly amazing example but I certahnly

:18:08.:18:10.

don't have `` I don't have his talents. Green only went to school

:18:11.:18:16.

for a year and was largely self`taught. Decades later, his

:18:17.:18:21.

calculations were used for the development of the MRI scanner. This

:18:22.:18:26.

is green's first essay which he published himself and which went on

:18:27.:18:34.

red for years. `` unread. Gdorge Green rated in his own time whilst

:18:35.:18:42.

working in the mill and latdr scientists recognised as ond of the

:18:43.:18:47.

most important works on electricity and the beginning of mathem`tic

:18:48.:18:55.

physics in Great Britain. There haven't have been some clevdr people

:18:56.:19:04.

in the East Midlands, haven't they? `` haven't there?

:19:05.:19:07.

Coming up, the small town cricket club aiming for the big prize.

:19:08.:19:10.

But we'll round up the football news first.

:19:11.:19:12.

Starting with Leicester Citx, who have welcomed midfielder Matty

:19:13.:19:14.

He won't be in the squad to face Stoke on Saturday, but the deadline

:19:15.:19:19.

Manager Nigel Pearson says he now has tactical choices to makd.

:19:20.:19:31.

I feel that we have got mord options now. Different styles that we could

:19:32.:19:39.

potentially play and that is always handy to have. We have seen with the

:19:40.:19:49.

games we have played so far that it really is a difficult leagud to be a

:19:50.:19:50.

success in. Derby striker Chris Martin has

:19:51.:19:53.

signed a new four year deal He scored 25 goals

:19:54.:19:57.

for the Rams last season. Now, cricket, with Nottingh`mshire

:19:58.:20:02.

now just a few lost wickets away from seeing Yorkshire lift the

:20:03.:20:04.

County Championship at Trent Bridge. They needed to beat

:20:05.:20:07.

the Tykes to stand any chance of winning the Championship ` but

:20:08.:20:10.

Yorkshire have just been too good. This morning they polished

:20:11.:20:14.

off Notts' tail, forced the follow on and promptly took another wicket

:20:15.:20:16.

with the very first ball. It didn't get much better for Notts

:20:17.:20:21.

` you know it's not your match Samit Patel's stumping disastrous or

:20:22.:20:24.

brilliant depending on your point The only high point a nifty fifty

:20:25.:20:29.

from the in form James Taylor. Nottinghamshire, as we said,

:20:30.:20:35.

following on and somehow holding Meanwhile, in Division 2, Ddrbyshire

:20:36.:20:56.

will have been disappointed but some impressive batting from

:20:57.:20:57.

Leicestershire. So,

:20:58.:21:05.

while our counties battle away, we Sandiacre Town Cricket Club have

:21:06.:21:06.

made it all the way to the Last year, Nottinghamshire's West

:21:07.:21:11.

Indian Cavaliers won the title. So, can Sandiacre make it an

:21:12.:21:14.

East Midlands two in a row? Well, as I found out,

:21:15.:21:17.

they have experience on thehr side. The Pavilion photo board is huge and

:21:18.:21:26.

so it should be. This was their moment of glory when they wdre 002

:21:27.:21:34.

national champions at Lord's. It was pandemonium. Nobody knew wh`t to do.

:21:35.:21:39.

We secured a run out to win the game. I have played it for six years

:21:40.:21:44.

and I have heard them bang on and off about it so it is time we got

:21:45.:21:54.

another one. So, the 20 1410 `` the 2014 captain looking to on dqual

:21:55.:22:00.

that match. It is great for me to that match. It is great for me to

:22:01.:22:06.

still be playing and great to go there again with the lads. Ht will

:22:07.:22:11.

take 11 guys who really want it who fight all the way and that hs what

:22:12.:22:17.

we have got. In the setting sun they are getting in some extra

:22:18.:22:21.

actors and they will need it. The pressure will be on. This whll be a

:22:22.:22:27.

huge game for everyone. It hs the pinnacle of amateur cricket, so as

:22:28.:22:30.

long as we concentrate on what we are doing, we should be all right.

:22:31.:22:40.

And this year, they do not just need to match the 2003 cricket, they also

:22:41.:22:47.

have two match the celebrathon. They are very good at celebrating and I

:22:48.:22:51.

am sure they will have something to celebrate. We wish them all the best

:22:52.:23:02.

for Sunday. Now, have you ever wondered what

:23:03.:23:08.

goes into making an award`whnning moustache? You are about to find

:23:09.:23:14.

out. Michael is taking part in the British beard and moustache

:23:15.:23:18.

Championships in Bath this weekend. Angelina Suchy has been to leet him

:23:19.:23:22.

as he gets ready for the competition.

:23:23.:23:28.

An array of products and pldnty of patience. This is what it t`kes to

:23:29.:23:33.

create the perfect moustachd and sideburns. Michael spends 30 minutes

:23:34.:23:40.

a day styling his facial hahr. How do you make it Kelly at the ends?

:23:41.:23:48.

Lots and lots of training. HQ is a hairdryer and blow the ends. You

:23:49.:23:54.

continually, throughout the day train and train it. Michael has won

:23:55.:24:01.

money awards in the past and this weekend he hopes he will `` he has

:24:02.:24:07.

won many awards in the past and this weekend he hopes he will win again.

:24:08.:24:13.

What are they looking for? H think predominantly they are lookhng for a

:24:14.:24:18.

really top`quality beard. There is also stage presence. A lot of the

:24:19.:24:24.

chaps like to get dressed up. Making sure it is all in check is

:24:25.:24:32.

Michael's partner, Catherind. It is the real when these amazing people

:24:33.:24:36.

walk past you. You have to go to understand, really. I have do ask

:24:37.:24:46.

you, what is it like to kiss him? Why would I want to kiss hil `` you

:24:47.:24:54.

have seen him! This will have to do for me as I wait have time to grow

:24:55.:24:58.

one. You can enjoy that again and again

:24:59.:25:06.

on Facebook. Good luck in B`th. We hope you win. Now for the wdather. I

:25:07.:25:13.

don't know how I can follow that. Your weather is staying dry and

:25:14.:25:17.

settled. It has been another beautiful day across the East

:25:18.:25:21.

Midlands. We have had some stunning sunrises later leaked `` lately

:25:22.:25:27.

Thank you very much for sending in your photo. High pressure rdmains in

:25:28.:25:31.

charge for the rest of the week That means it will stay dry and

:25:32.:25:36.

settled. There will be more in the way of cloud over the next few days.

:25:37.:25:41.

The high pressure is still with us and that is keeping us lovely and

:25:42.:25:47.

settled. This evening, we c`n see more cloud feeding in from the North

:25:48.:25:52.

Sea. The cloud will increasd and there will be some holes in it and

:25:53.:25:59.
