Good evening. A man from Leicester,

:00:20.:00:21.

who was with volunteer aid worker Alan Henning moments before he was

:00:22.:00:24.

kidnapped in Syria, has madd a direct appeal to his captors.

:00:25.:00:27.

Majid Freeman says it was hhs "worst nightmare" to see his friend,

:00:28.:00:30.

known as Gadget, taken hostage last December.

:00:31.:00:35.

He spoke to our reporter Catrin Nye and showed her footage

:00:36.:00:54.

of his trip with Alan Henning. He is known as Gadget. He is the

:00:55.:00:57.

technical man. He said. He hs the man that will step up to it and fix

:00:58.:01:01.

it right away. He knew that the places that we were taking `id to,

:01:02.:01:04.

the United Nations said thelselves that they cannot reach hundreds of

:01:05.:01:09.

thousands of Syrian people, but we could get to these people, so we are

:01:10.:01:19.

a lifeline for these people. When he saw the difference he made for

:01:20.:01:22.

himself `` what he saw the difference he made, when he held a

:01:23.:01:26.

baby in his hand, that was powerful for him. How has it been for you to

:01:27.:01:31.

see him appearing on and Islamic State video? You do not expdct this.

:01:32.:01:41.

You hear about it but you do not expect someone that you

:01:42.:01:47.

travelled with and spent tile with, someone who you had meals whth and

:01:48.:01:54.

went to refugee camps with `nd someone who you shared a go`l with

:01:55.:02:00.

and someone, this is real lhfe, I know him. He is my friend. What

:02:01.:02:04.

would your message to his khdnappers be? Please, please, please show him

:02:05.:02:13.

some mercy and understand hd is a humanitarian aid worker. He is not a

:02:14.:02:16.

fighter. He has not come for political reasons. He has only come

:02:17.:02:20.

to help the people. Please, do not kill him, please, spare him. Let him

:02:21.:02:30.

come back home. A body found in a factory fhre

:02:31.:02:33.

in Nottingham earlier this summer has now been officially identified.

:02:34.:02:35.

Dalvinder Johal was discovered after a fire at Nottingham Road

:02:36.:02:39.

in New Basford at the end of July. Nottingham Coroner's Office said

:02:40.:02:41.

an inquest has been opened and adjourned into his death.

:02:42.:02:44.

The investigation into the cause of the fire is continuing.

:02:45.:02:49.

Controversial plans to build new homes on green belt land on

:02:50.:02:52.

the outskirts of Nottingham, could face a challenge in the High Court.

:02:53.:02:55.

Broxtowe Council last night gave final approval for work to start

:02:56.:03:01.

on more than 6,000 propertids. Green belt campaigners are furious.

:03:02.:03:04.

Here's our Political Editor John Hess.

:03:05.:03:12.

A morning stroll. It was green belt land here

:03:13.:03:14.

until counselors approved development plans.

:03:15.:03:20.

We have done everything that is right.

:03:21.:03:23.

This man has lived in the area most of his lifd

:03:24.:03:27.

and opposed the housing plan. We need to sit around a table with

:03:28.:03:30.

developers and get the best plan for the area, something that is good

:03:31.:03:34.

for the community. We need a community centre,

:03:35.:03:40.

we need improvements to the roads. Campaigners outside the

:03:41.:03:44.

council's townhall. Despite last night's final `pproval,

:03:45.:03:47.

this whole issue could end tp in the High Court.

:03:48.:03:56.

A number of parish councils are entire to strike rope `` thhs is how

:03:57.:04:03.

the target is shared out among local authority areas,

:04:04.:04:11.

with Broxtowe's now approved 6, 50. They have made no amendments, they

:04:12.:04:32.

have not met as. The governlent inspector has not followed

:04:33.:04:35.

government policy and this hs not the first time this has happened up

:04:36.:04:40.

and down the country over the last three or four years.

:04:41.:04:46.

If the legal challenge against the housing target succeeds,

:04:47.:04:51.

it is back to the drawing board and a possible retrieve for the farm.

:04:52.:04:54.

I was joined by someone frol the council and started by asking if he

:04:55.:05:04.

was sure the case for the council was watertight. We make surd we do

:05:05.:05:11.

everything the government rdquire from ours. We go to an independent

:05:12.:05:17.

inspector, they make sure wd have got it right. Did you consider the

:05:18.:05:23.

environmental impact? I havd considered every day for thd last

:05:24.:05:31.

few years the impact. This hs going to be built on green belt l`nd, does

:05:32.:05:37.

that mean the whole concept of green belt is dead in the water? Not at

:05:38.:05:45.

all. We have taken every Brownfield site we can. Every single one we can

:05:46.:05:53.

we have allocated but we have to take 2% of green belt. What is your

:05:54.:06:00.

message to residents who ard going to lose a slice of countryshde under

:06:01.:06:09.

a concrete? If we did not h`ve to be rude not what we have to make sure

:06:10.:06:15.

people have horns. Thank yot. `` humans. `` homes.

:06:16.:06:29.

Car parking charges are being reduced at Nottingham's

:06:30.:06:32.

hospitals after public pressure Patients and visitors have long

:06:33.:06:34.

complained about the fees. The minimum is currently ?4.

:06:35.:06:36.

But from November the first 15 minutes will be free, an hotr

:06:37.:06:39.

will cost ?2 and two hours ?4. Hospital managers say they've

:06:40.:06:41.

taken peoples' views into account. That's your news. Goodbye from me,

:06:42.:06:43.

but here's the weather now. We are expecting another warm day

:06:44.:06:50.

tomorrow but you can expect there to be a few isolated showers. We have

:06:51.:06:56.

started to see the cloud increasing from the east. There is a potential

:06:57.:07:06.

for some mist and fog. It should be dry foremost. A mild night with lows

:07:07.:07:16.

of 15 Celsius. A mild start to tomorrow. There is a risk of

:07:17.:07:23.

isolated showers by afternoon but some places will stay dry for the

:07:24.:07:25.

Hall B. Highs of 19 where there 21 degrees. Possibly a better day by

:07:26.:07:31.

Sunday. Hello, you know when you get

:07:32.:07:41.

temperatures in the mid-20s at this time of year that we are on borrowed

:07:42.:07:46.

time. By the weekend, we will not be getting 26 Celsius like today. But

:07:47.:07:54.

by the weekend, we're not going to have the low cloud we have had in

:07:55.:07:57.

Edinburgh throughout the week holding the temperature down, so

:07:58.:08:01.

there are some changes on the way. Right now, the warm muggy air has

:08:02.:08:04.

been triggering thunderstorms across the south of the UK. Bristol and

:08:05.:08:11.

Cardiff, and other areas heading towards the south coast. Southern

:08:12.:08:16.

England, the Midlands and Wales as the night goes on, some torrential

:08:17.:08:21.

thundery downpours. May keep some of us awake. For Northern Ireland,

:08:22.:08:25.

northern England and Scotland, mainly dry, but missed and low

:08:26.:08:29.

cloud, hill fog becoming extensive again. It is muggy. This is the

:08:30.:08:37.

morning, difficult to pinpoint exactly where the downpours are

:08:38.:08:40.

going to be, but we have to cater for the possibility in London,
