And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Geeta Pendse

:00:13.:00:16.

Politicians in the East Midlands are calling

:00:17.:00:18.

for a measure of devolution and tax`raising powers for the region.

:00:19.:00:22.

It comes after the no vote hn Scotland which means a form of Devo

:00:23.:00:25.

Our Political Editor John Hdss has been to Leicester to gatge

:00:26.:00:32.

Even the weather and Leicester felt Scottish today.

:00:33.:00:38.

For many, working out referdndum repercussions for cities like

:00:39.:00:43.

They have their parliament and we don't.

:00:44.:00:56.

Any powers given to other cities is good.

:00:57.:01:05.

Hopefully other cities will be able to progress from that.

:01:06.:01:08.

The Prime Minister hinted at devolution for English chties.

:01:09.:01:14.

We will see more about empowering our cities in the coming daxs.

:01:15.:01:17.

I believe that in Britain wd should have the same range of powers to

:01:18.:01:29.

raise revenues that our continental cousins and American friends have.

:01:30.:01:34.

That I think would enable us to really empower local democr`cy.

:01:35.:01:41.

But it will be up to English MPs to shape those powers.

:01:42.:01:46.

I have views about more powdrs for Leicester, Nottingham,

:01:47.:01:50.

Derby and county councils, but we really have to listen to what

:01:51.:01:54.

I am concerned about the practicalities, when cities like

:01:55.:02:03.

Derbyshire South conservative Heather Wheeler simply said hurrah.

:02:04.:02:15.

Now for English MPs to vote on English issues.

:02:16.:02:18.

And Labour's Chris Williamson from Derby North said it is now time to

:02:19.:02:21.

Even before the political dtst from all of this has settled, thd debate

:02:22.:02:27.

over the extent of devolution for English cities has already begun.

:02:28.:02:35.

It's over a year since an arson attack killed four members of the

:02:36.:02:39.

Eight men were jailed for their part in the attack on the house hn

:02:40.:02:44.

Dr Mohammed Taufiq lost his wife, daughter and two sons.

:02:45.:02:51.

Well Dr Taufiq now lives in Dublin and has founded an Islamic Centre in

:02:52.:02:54.

Earlier, I asked him why he'd felt the need to do it

:02:55.:03:03.

So, this was always in our lind both mine and my wife,

:03:04.:03:07.

that we need to have such a centre here where the children can get all

:03:08.:03:13.

The curriculum and the religious education.

:03:14.:03:19.

You have spoken a lot about how your faith has helped you.

:03:20.:03:24.

I used to share everything with my wife.

:03:25.:03:37.

And everything that we planned, the main mindset was my wifd's.

:03:38.:03:48.

She was using her brain as well and I was on the front line doing

:03:49.:03:52.

So I miss her as well, but since my family, God has taken my family,

:03:53.:03:59.

God has provided in the othdr way, given that vision as well now that

:04:00.:04:05.

Yes, I have the help as well from the other people, from the other

:04:06.:04:11.

people, but I'm making the decisions and a lot of things are going

:04:12.:04:14.

It is clear to see what an hmpact you are having with the centre.

:04:15.:04:19.

Volunteers who were told by Derby City Council to stop picking

:04:20.:04:28.

up litter until they'd been given trahning

:04:29.:04:31.

The group, from Normanton in Derby, are now being sponsored

:04:32.:04:36.

by local landlords. Simon Hare reports.

:04:37.:04:40.

They are used to bagging up rubbish, but today they bagged up

:04:41.:04:43.

They had been provided by the City Council, which then decided

:04:44.:04:49.

Instead, they have taken them back to the council.

:04:50.:04:59.

You would believe this is an April fool.

:05:00.:05:01.

The reason we could not emb`rk on the training is because we want

:05:02.:05:09.

The council said it was a hdalth and safety issue.

:05:10.:05:19.

The Health and Safety Executive have said the action from

:05:20.:05:22.

But the volunteers have said they will carry on using equipment

:05:23.:05:29.

I donated the high visibility jackets to support this campaign.

:05:30.:05:39.

I often find rubbish piled up outside my properties.

:05:40.:05:47.

Without volunteers helping, this will get worse.

:05:48.:06:01.

The council says it has a dtty of care to anyone carrying out work

:06:02.:06:04.

Finally a reminder to motorhsts particularly those travelling to

:06:05.:06:13.

East Midlands Airport, that a part of a major motorway

:06:14.:06:16.

The southern bridge of Junction 24 on the M1 shtts
