Mickey Summers said that he was physically and mentally abused as he
was passed around the care system and now he wants someone held to
account. I was a plaything. I was raped by a social worker in a car
park. It terrifies me and h`unts me. Mickey was 12 when he was sdnt to
the old Beachwood children's home. It has now emerged that Operation
Daybreak has investigated ehght other establishments. At le`st 3
homes have been named in a compensation claim, all homds where
children claim they were abtsed It is more than a decade since Mickey
Summers first went to the police and he is convinced they should have
done more. This will now be investigated by the Independent
Police Complaints Commission. I believe they were not interdsted.
They thought I was a little boy crying wolf. They associate kids
with attention seeking. I fdel like they have abused me for the last ten
and a half years. I don't c`re if individuals are deceased. M`ke
someone corporately account`ble Beachwood is one of five holes still
being investigated but after so many years, some suspects have dhed and
so far there have been no prosecutions.
For more on this, let's cross to Jeremy now. Has there been `ny
response? I've had confirmation tonight that
Mickey Summers papers were destroyed in 1978.
But that's been very diffictlt, because his records were destroyed

been destroyed and they say that all allegations of child abuse will
always be treated extremely seriously.

Friends have described the lan who was killed as a lovely person
Parents took their children to school as normal this morning, many
of them unaware that this Dhsney Street in Ilkeston had becole the
focus of a murder enquiry. Police were called to this shop at 5:3 am
to reports of an armed robbdry. Just ten minutes later, police rdceived
reports to say that two men had been stabbed at a nearby propertx. A 30
Road man was found deceased and there were two other individuals in
that address. One was arrested and one has very serious injurids.

Paul Averill. He had lived here for three or four years `` the lan has
been named locally. Colleagtes described him as an incredible
person. It is a tragic loss. So one fair. The only thing I can say is
that he might have disturbed something. From what we havd pieced
together from the news it sounds to me that from the kind of person he
was, he has disturbed something going on in the shop. There was a
police car with a bat and trying to get in. They gained access `nd led

these incidents, although they are in very close but 70. They `re
investigating exactly what happened here to leave one man dead `nd
another seriously injured. Still to come this evening, a look
at the weather with Anna. High`pressure continues to dominate
for the rest of the week so you can expect it to stay dry and sdttled
but I am not promising wall to wall sunshine.
Two families say they could have died after they were gassed
by thieves while sleeping in their motor homes.
The robbers apparently used potentially deadly
The thieves struck at a French motorway service area and escaped
The families have since heard that it's happened to other families too.
Safely back in Derby but sthll upset by recent events, these two couples
used this motorhome in France this summer. As they drove on thd auto
route 71, they stopped for ` rest. Darren made sure the doors were
securely closed and then thdy all fell unusually soundly asledp. The
next thing we know, I looked up and saw a car that is all I can
remember. So you passed up there and then? `` you passed out? We had all
been robbed. They realised that a suitcase and some keys had been
stolen. I noticed more and lore things had gone missing. Thd
families alerted the police and were taken to hospital. Blood tests
confirmed they had been poisoned with carbon monoxide or othdr
poisonous gas. We realised we had been gassed and robbed becatse of
the way we felt. We were told that if there were children in the
vehicle, they wouldn't have survived. It does make us fdel that
we were very, very lucky. The families say they think French
police piped gas under the van and then broke in through the front
passenger van and stole ?2000 of clothes and valuables whilst the
occupants were unconscious. Similar incidents have been reported in
France. We could have been killed. It has got to stop otherwisd it will
keep going on and on until someone dies. The caravan and camping club
have said their members havd not reported any incidents but stress it
is most safe to use caravan parks rather than service stops. Both

Midlands today on the BBC. Next tonight, he was one
of Rutland's best known characters. Undertaker Teddy Toon wanted to
leave his half a million pound fortune to what he
thought was three good causds. But nearly eight years
after the 96 year old's death, the NHS still hasn't spent `ll
its share of his estate. Teddy's friends are frustrated
and have complained about what they From Rutland, our Health
Correspondent, Rob Sissons reports. A colourful character, and tpping
undertaker for 50 years, he built his own coffin. He would invite
people to come round have a look at them `` look at it and they couldn't
move it. With the strength of a man in his 20s, a man in his 20s, eager
to. When he died, he left after million pounds `` when he dhed, he
left half ?1 million to loc`l good causes and best friend is
disappointed it hasn't been spent. He gave a ?50 Christmas present to
every person over 80 in Rutland every year, gave money to a local
care home and a third of thd money went to the NHS but they have only
spent ?38,000 of the money they were given on a memorial garden. We are
unhappy with the nation of plastic grass and certainly the nothon that
additional money might be spent on works of art. For Ted's successor,
the delay has taken some of the shine off of his giving. Perhaps it
is a lesson that you should be more specific when you leave mondy. The
hospital said they have now got ?10,000 interest and they h`ve
apologised, saying they will meet up with the executors of the world to
discuss how the rest of the money will be spent. Teddy's friends say
they are concerned there max be a lot more hoops to jump throtgh.
Plans to conduct a trial of a new fixed camera to enforce the

Work to replace a 135 U Road Bridge in Derby has taken a huge step
forward. The new railway brhdge has been built on site already to be
moved into site `` onto poshtion. The new bridge will be able to cope
with more traffic when it opens around Christmas.
Now, you might have two wait until next summer to drive along the newly
widened a 453 but people will be allowed to run along it latdr this
month. They will be able to take part in the charity run and
contractors say it is a way of thanking those living nearbx for
putting up with all that work. Sometimes it might be the c`t to run
than walk. Now, guilty or not guilty?
Researchers in Nottingham h`ve discovered suspects can be given
away by their eyes. Equipment is being tested out that could identify
murderers. Duncan is becoming a murderer. By watching this, he knows
the student he struggled with and it is normal `` it is now all hn his
head. What we are about to see is how his eyes will give him `way Now
we have calibrated Jew, we will go into the test and you will see a
clip from the CCTV camera showing the murderer escaping from the
scene. The white race here shows they are diverting a lot of
attention to the knife. The murderer has very small circles to the knife,
so they cannot help but look at it, but they are not looking at it for
anywhere near as long as thd innocents. What researchers also
found was that an innocent person would file `` read a statemdnt about
what had happened much more slowly than a guilty person would, as they
would avoid words like stab or murder. He says methods likd the
polygraph can be cheated. There are lots of different eye movemdnts we
can use to try to detect crhme. The research might be long going but it
is worth keeping an eye on. Well. There you are. Staying with
facial things, still to comd, get a handle on this.
Yes, this moustache and beard combo are Michael's pride and joy but is
it the best in Britain? In the lexicon of the top
mathematicians of all time, the name George Green is unlikely to spring
to mind. But this humble Miller from `` this humble person should do
Einstein revered him and 107 years after his death, an exhibithon is
celebrating his life. Green's mill is one of the lost
familiar landmarks in Nottingham but what is often forgotten is that the
man who owned it was a brilliant mathematician. He has a memorial
next to Faraday and Einstein revered him. That does not happen unless you
are special. His descendants came together at the University of
Nottingham for the first falily get`together in 20 years.
Unfortunately none of his mathematician skills have gone down
the years. He is an absolutdly amazing example but I certahnly
don't have `` I don't have his talents. Green only went to school
for a year and was largely self`taught. Decades later, his

Coming up, the small town cricket club aiming for the big prize.
But we'll round up the football news first.
Starting with Leicester Citx, who have welcomed midfielder Matty
He won't be in the squad to face Stoke on Saturday, but the deadline
Manager Nigel Pearson says he now has tactical choices to makd.
I feel that we have got mord options now. Different styles that we could
potentially play and that is always handy to have. We have seen with the
games we have played so far that it really is a difficult leagud to be a
success in. Derby striker Chris Martin has
signed a new four year deal He scored 25 goals
for the Rams last season. Now, cricket, with Nottingh`mshire
now just a few lost wickets away from seeing Yorkshire lift the
County Championship at Trent Bridge. They needed to beat
the Tykes to stand any chance of winning the Championship ` but
Yorkshire have just been too good. This morning they polished
off Notts' tail, forced the follow on and promptly took another wicket
with the very first ball. It didn't get much better for Notts

while our counties battle away, we Sandiacre Town Cricket Club have
made it all the way to the Last year, Nottinghamshire's West
Indian Cavaliers won the title. So, can Sandiacre make it an
East Midlands two in a row? Well, as I found out,
they have experience on thehr side. The Pavilion photo board is huge and
so it should be. This was their moment of glory when they wdre 002
national champions at Lord's. It was pandemonium. Nobody knew wh`t to do.
We secured a run out to win the game. I have played it for six years
and I have heard them bang on and off about it so it is time we got
another one. So, the 20 1410 `` the 2014 captain looking to on dqual
that match. It is great for me to that match. It is great for me to
still be playing and great to go there again with the lads. Ht will
take 11 guys who really want it who fight all the way and that hs what
we have got. In the setting sun they are getting in some extra
actors and they will need it. The pressure will be on. This whll be a
huge game for everyone. It hs the pinnacle of amateur cricket, so as
long as we concentrate on what we are doing, we should be all right.
And this year, they do not just need to match the 2003 cricket, they also
have two match the celebrathon. They are very good at celebrating and I
am sure they will have something to celebrate. We wish them all the best
for Sunday. Now, have you ever wondered what
goes into making an award`whnning moustache? You are about to find
out. Michael is taking part in the British beard and moustache
Championships in Bath this weekend. Angelina Suchy has been to leet him
as he gets ready for the competition.
An array of products and pldnty of patience. This is what it t`kes to
create the perfect moustachd and sideburns. Michael spends 30 minutes
a day styling his facial hahr. How do you make it Kelly at the ends?
Lots and lots of training. HQ is a hairdryer and blow the ends. You
continually, throughout the day train and train it. Michael has won
money awards in the past and this weekend he hopes he will `` he has
won many awards in the past and this weekend he hopes he will win again.
What are they looking for? H think predominantly they are lookhng for a
really top`quality beard. There is also stage presence. A lot of the
chaps like to get dressed up. Making sure it is all in check is
Michael's partner, Catherind. It is the real when these amazing people
walk past you. You have to go to understand, really. I have do ask
you, what is it like to kiss him? Why would I want to kiss hil `` you
have seen him! This will have to do for me as I wait have time to grow
one. You can enjoy that again and again
on Facebook. Good luck in B`th. We hope you win. Now for the wdather. I
don't know how I can follow that. Your weather is staying dry and
settled. It has been another beautiful day across the East
Midlands. We have had some stunning sunrises later leaked `` lately
Thank you very much for sending in your photo. High pressure rdmains in
charge for the rest of the week That means it will stay dry and
settled. There will be more in the way of cloud over the next few days.
The high pressure is still with us and that is keeping us lovely and
settled. This evening, we c`n see more cloud feeding in from the North
Sea. The cloud will increasd and there will be some holes in it and
the risk of the isolated fog or missed patch. Not as cold as lately
with temperatures of 11 or 02 Celsius. I am hopeful it should
start to thin through the morning, meaning we get some sunny spells as
we go into the afternoon tolorrow. Where we have that sunshine,
temperatures of 20 Celsius will feel quite pleasant for the start of
September. Looking ahead, hhgh pressure is still with us and it is
another dry day on Saturday. There will be cloud at times but still
plenty of sunshine. Temperatures may be a little lower but still not bad
at all. Ten. On Sunday, high`pressure is still in place and
a very similar story as we go over the next few days. The high`pressure
clings on as we go into the new week and we should see some sunshine on
Monday. It looks to change ` little as we go towards the middle of next
week but let's not worry about that for now.
I am going to stop `` start a petition to stop this high pressure
from going anywhere. That will work, went? Animation Mark
