Thank you very much. That is all from Edinburgh. There

:00:00.:00:17.

And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale.

:00:18.:00:20.

The BBC has learnt that nind care homes are under investigation

:00:21.:00:25.

following allegations of historic child abuse.

:00:26.:00:27.

But some former residents s`y it's "too little too late".

:00:28.:00:29.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Jeremy Ball has this exclushve

:00:30.:00:32.

They have been covering it tp since 2003! Anger boiling over after

:00:33.:00:48.

almost 50 years as campaigndrs forced the council meeting to be

:00:49.:00:53.

abandoned. Leading the protdst was Mickey Summers. He says he was

:00:54.:00:57.

physically and sexually abused as he was passed around the care system

:00:58.:01:01.

but most of his records havd been destroyed and now he's demanding

:01:02.:01:06.

someone is held to account. I was just someone who was there `s a

:01:07.:01:10.

plaything, raped by a social worker in a car park. I am an emothonal

:01:11.:01:17.

wreck, it haunts me, terrifhes me. He was 12 when he was sent to the

:01:18.:01:21.

children's home which is at the centre of one of the Notts's largest

:01:22.:01:25.

police enquiries, but now it has emerged that a tough establhshment

:01:26.:01:32.

have been investigated. Thex have all been named in a compens`tion

:01:33.:01:36.

claim. They are all homes where former residents claim they were

:01:37.:01:39.

abused as children but it's more than a decade since Mickey Summers

:01:40.:01:43.

first went to the police and he s convinced they should have done much

:01:44.:01:47.

more. This enquiry is now going to be repaired by the IPCC. I feel

:01:48.:01:53.

disgusted and let down. I bdlieve the police weren't interestdd. They

:01:54.:01:59.

think of the little boy cryhng wolf, the associate kids with attdntion

:02:00.:02:05.

seeking. I feel they have abused me for the last ten years. I don't care

:02:06.:02:10.

if individuals are deceased, make someone accountable. Beechwood is

:02:11.:02:16.

one of five homes are still being investigated but after so m`ny

:02:17.:02:19.

years, some suspects have dhed and so far there have been no

:02:20.:02:26.

persecution is. Tonight we have a confirmation that Mickey Sulmers's

:02:27.:02:30.

records were destroyed, but far from being a cover`up, the counchl says

:02:31.:02:34.

it was standard procedure at the time because the rules on ddstroying

:02:35.:02:37.

records didn't come in until the 1990s. I have apologised to him for

:02:38.:02:43.

destroying those records and say they are now working with hhm to try

:02:44.:02:46.

to establish exactly what h`ppened at those children's homes. They are

:02:47.:02:51.

stressing that all allegations of child abuse, whether current or

:02:52.:02:55.

historic, always treated extremely seriously.

:02:56.:02:58.

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

:02:59.:03:01.

after a stabbing in Ilkeston in Derbyshire this morning.

:03:02.:03:03.

Police were first called to an armed robbery then to

:03:04.:03:06.

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

:03:07.:03:11.

Dozens of parents were taking their children to school

:03:12.:03:23.

as normal this morning, many of them unaware that this busy

:03:24.:03:27.

street in Ilkeston had becole the focus of a murder inquiry.

:03:28.:03:31.

Police were called to the One Stop shop on Charlotte Street at 5:3 am

:03:32.:03:35.

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

:03:36.:03:38.

police received calls to sax two men had been stabbed at a nearbx address

:03:39.:03:41.

in the same street. A 30`year`old man was found

:03:42.:03:43.

deceased and there were two other individuals in that address.

:03:44.:03:47.

One was arrested and one has very serious injuries and he has been

:03:48.:03:51.

taken to a hospital Nottingham. That man is now being treatdd

:03:52.:03:53.

for life`threatening injurids at the Queen's Medical Centre.

:03:54.:04:01.

The man who died has been n`med by friends as Paul Avril. Colldagues at

:04:02.:04:15.

work described him as an incredible person. Such a tragic loss, so

:04:16.:04:21.

unfair. What could possibly have happened to him? The only thing I

:04:22.:04:27.

can say is he might have disturbed something. From what we havd pieced

:04:28.:04:33.

together, it turns to me th`t he has disturbed something or heard

:04:34.:04:37.

something going off at the shop The major crime unit is now that are

getting exactly what happendd here to leave one man dead and another

tonight about robbers who t`rget tourists while they're sleeping

:04:50.:04:51.

in motor homes and caravans abroad. Two families say they could have

:04:52.:04:53.

died after they were gassed by thieves

:04:54.:04:57.

at a French motorway servicd area. Safely back in Derby, the Chadwicks

:04:58.:05:12.

and the willows. The two cotples used this motorhome in France this

:05:13.:05:17.

summer. As they drove to thd ferry port of Calais, the stopped at a

:05:18.:05:23.

service area around midnight for rest. Darren made sure the doors

:05:24.:05:28.

were securely closed and thdn they all fell unusually soundly `sleep. I

:05:29.:05:35.

looked up, saw a car, that's I can remember. I woke up at six `nd we

:05:36.:05:42.

had all been robbed. The falilies alerted the police and were taken to

:05:43.:05:46.

hospital but tests confirmed they had been poisoned with carbon

:05:47.:05:51.

monoxide or another toxic g`s. I was just dazed and shaky, we re`lised we

had been gassed and robbed because of the way we felt. We were told

:05:55.:06:00.

that if they were children hn the vehicle, the children wouldn't have

:06:01.:06:05.

survived. The family say thd French police believe the robbers probably

:06:06.:06:09.

used an exhaust. Similar incidents have also been reported by other

:06:10.:06:12.

British travellers in Francd. They have got to get caught otherwise it

:06:13.:06:17.

will keep going on until soleone dies. The camping and carav`nning
