This is East Midlands Today. continues. The dream shall never

:00:00.:00:10.

Tonight, could the Scottish No vote change our political landsc`pe?

:00:11.:00:21.

Is it time for English citids like Leicester to have more powers?

:00:22.:00:34.

The new breathalyser which xou take before driving.

:00:35.:00:45.

And one of the country's oldest police dogs is retiring aftdr more

:00:46.:00:46.

than ten years work. First tonight,

:00:47.:00:57.

after the big referendum decision north of the border, there have been

:00:58.:01:01.

calls today for a touch The Prime Minister has alre`dy

:01:02.:01:04.

hinted at more powers And Leicester's City Mayor has

:01:05.:01:09.

pitched in, Our Political Editor has bedn to

:01:10.:01:16.

Leicester to gauge reaction to the referendum vote that's kept

:01:17.:01:21.

Scotland in the United Kingdom. Even the weather and Leicester felt

:01:22.:01:34.

Scottish today. For many, working out referendum repercussions for

:01:35.:01:37.

cities like Leicester made heavy weather indeed. Does England lose

:01:38.:01:45.

out in all this? It may well do We will be worse off. They havd their

:01:46.:01:50.

parliament and we don't. It's not fair, but life isn't fair. @ny

:01:51.:01:54.

powers given to other cities is good. Hopefully other cities will be

:01:55.:02:04.

able to progress from that. The Prime Minister hinted at devolution

:02:05.:02:10.

for English cities. We will see more about empowering our cities in the

:02:11.:02:15.

coming days. What should be on offer? I believe that in Brhtain we

:02:16.:02:21.

should have the same range of powers to raise revenues that our

:02:22.:02:25.

continental cousins and American friends have. That I think would

:02:26.:02:30.

enable us to really empower local democracy. But it will be up to

:02:31.:02:39.

English MPs to shape those powers. I have views about more powers for

:02:40.:02:42.

Leicester, Nottingham, Derbx and county councils, but we really have

:02:43.:02:47.

to listen to what people in the East Midlands won't. I have an open mind.

:02:48.:02:53.

I am concerned about the practicalities, when cities like

:02:54.:03:00.

Nottingham have 1`party states. I don't believe they are incltsive.

:03:01.:03:16.

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

:03:17.:03:23.

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

:03:24.:03:25.

So when will we get the det`ils of the Prime Minister's plans

:03:26.:03:29.

I think this is the big unknown this evening. The Prime Minister has

:03:30.:03:41.

spoken of some changes to Parliament. This whole issud of

:03:42.:03:46.

English votes for English l`ws. That is designed to keep the Torx MPs on

:03:47.:03:52.

board. We haven't had any ddtails in terms of what he is talking about. I

:03:53.:04:01.

suspect that David Cameron's policy team are working at fleshing out

:04:02.:04:04.

these policy issues this wedkend. It wouldn't surprise me if we start to

:04:05.:04:09.

get a formal announcement when the Conservatives gather in Birlingham

:04:10.:04:13.

for their annual conference in a weeks time. Birmingham in a way

:04:14.:04:16.

would be the perfect location to make such an announcement about more

:04:17.:04:22.

powers for English cities. This is kind of unchartered territory. Is

:04:23.:04:25.

there any consensus across the parties? Labour have signed up to

:04:26.:04:34.

the English cities, but I think the consensus is starting to brdak down

:04:35.:04:42.

for English votes for English law. Labour fear that would mean a Tory

:04:43.:04:51.

majority in the House of Colmons. Graham Allen, the MP, has floated

:04:52.:05:06.

the idea for constitutional reform from a Labour point of view. I think

:05:07.:05:11.

there will be more to come hn the party conferences.

:05:12.:05:13.

Well, to coin a Scottish phrase it has been a bit dreich today.

:05:14.:05:16.

Are things going to improve for the weekend?

:05:17.:05:19.

All change for this weekend. We gradually lose the Mark. By Sunday,

:05:20.:05:29.

it will feel like autumn has arrived.

:05:30.:05:32.

If you are heading into Loughborough tonight for a drink,

:05:33.:05:34.

you may be breathalysed before being allowed into certain bars.

:05:35.:05:36.

It is to help bouncers gaugd how much alcohol people havd

:05:37.:05:39.

The trial is backed by Leicestershire Police and runs

:05:40.:05:49.

To find out more we can cross live now to our reporter who is hn one

:05:50.:05:54.

Yes, good evening to you both. As you can see, I am on the water

:05:55.:06:06.

because I am working. Come later on, plenty of people in Loughborough

:06:07.:06:13.

will have had too much to drink and frankly causing harm to thelselves

:06:14.:06:16.

or even other people. But if they are wrote in Loughborough tonight,

:06:17.:06:20.

they might be asked to take a breathalyser tests so that bouncers

:06:21.:06:21.

can see whether they have already had too much. It is being rtn in

:06:22.:06:32.

five bars. Tell us exactly how this test will work. We have givdn the

:06:33.:06:39.

devices to five venues in Loughborough. Door staff will be in

:06:40.:06:43.

charge and they will do thehr normal job. They already make decisions

:06:44.:06:46.

about whether is someone is suitable to come into the venue. This device

:06:47.:06:51.

will give them more information to help them make their decision. There

:06:52.:06:58.

is no definition as to what to drunk is. You and I could have thd same

:06:59.:07:02.

amount of alcohol and be at different levels. This is a

:07:03.:07:07.

screening device which will act as a guide. They will be told thd drink

:07:08.:07:17.

drive limit. In a previous study, they found that twice the drink

:07:18.:07:22.

drive limit was about reasonable in terms of where to cut off the amount

:07:23.:07:29.

people could have before coling in. We have reduced alcohol`rel`ted

:07:30.:07:32.

crime in Loughborough, but we want to build on that. We are trxing this

:07:33.:07:37.

out as a new idea. Will you be turfing very drunk people ott onto

:07:38.:07:44.

the streets? I don't anticipate there will be any more from people

:07:45.:07:48.

on the streets and I don't suppose many more people will be turned

:07:49.:08:01.

away. We will be filming thhs evening and will have a full report

:08:02.:08:03.

on Monday. A Leicester teenager has bedn found

:08:04.:08:06.

guilty of killing his eight`year`old The accident happened on Gipsy Lane

:08:07.:08:08.

in Leicester in July 2012. Abhay Jadeja had been travelling

:08:09.:08:12.

in the boot of the car. His brother, Chirag Jadeja, who was

:08:13.:08:15.

16 at the time, has been fotnd guilty of three offences, including

:08:16.:08:20.

death by dangerous driving. He will be sentenced at

:08:21.:08:23.

Birmingham Crown Court next month. Muslims

:08:24.:08:27.

in Leicester have come together for a national day of prayer

:08:28.:08:30.

for victims of the Islamic State. They gathered this afternoon

:08:31.:08:33.

at the city's Central Mosqud to pray for the safety of all volunteers

:08:34.:08:38.

and charity workers, includhng They also remembered the murdered

:08:39.:08:40.

aid worker, David Haines. We would like to offer our tnanimous

:08:41.:08:56.

condemnation for this act of absolute evil, terrorism. It is

:08:57.:09:03.

disgraceful and ugly. And it is not an act of Islam. It is indedd an act

:09:04.:09:08.

of the devil. Asian children with asthma `re five

:09:09.:09:14.

times more likely to end up in accident and emergency than

:09:15.:09:17.

white children according to A big study in the city involving

:09:18.:09:19.

De Montfort and Leicester Universities found the NHS

:09:20.:09:28.

is sometimes failing to meet This baby had asthma. There were

:09:29.:09:44.

delays diagnosing and. Last weekend, he went off to university. But his

:09:45.:09:54.

family are concerned others in the Asian community are not accdpting

:09:55.:10:00.

help. Sadly there is still ` stigma. This is seen as something ndgative

:10:01.:10:04.

and you should not make people aware of asthma. People are not always

:10:05.:10:12.

able to react because of a lack of knowledge. The study found @sian

:10:13.:10:26.

children were more likely to end up in accident and emergency bdcause of

:10:27.:10:33.

asthma. Children are sitting silently and suffering. We need to

:10:34.:10:36.

help those children and makd their lives better. If your child is

:10:37.:10:41.

having lots of night`time coughs, wheezing or finding it diffhcult to

:10:42.:10:45.

breathe, please take them to the doctor. This expert says thd

:10:46.:10:56.

investigation is a wake`up call We need to diagnose asthma sooner. We

:10:57.:11:02.

need to look at how we manage these patients. With the right trdatment,

:11:03.:11:05.

most asthma deaths are prevdntable. Volunteers who were told to stop

:11:06.:11:10.

picking up litter until they had been given training

:11:11.:11:12.

have handed back their equipment to But the group from Normanton

:11:13.:11:20.

in Derby say they are now rdsuming their clear`up thanks to sponsorship

:11:21.:11:24.

from local landlords. They are used to backing up rubbish,

:11:25.:11:33.

but today they bagged up thdir litter pickers. They had bedn

:11:34.:11:37.

provided by the City Council, which then decided the volunteers needed

:11:38.:11:42.

training. Instead, they havd taken them back to the cancel. Yot would

:11:43.:11:52.

believe this is an April fool. But we have moved on. The reason we

:11:53.:11:57.

could not embark on the trahning is because we want other peopld to join

:11:58.:12:03.

us every week. The story made the national papers. The council said it

:12:04.:12:13.

was a health and is a issue. The Health and Safety Executive have

:12:14.:12:17.

said the action from the cancel was disproportionate. At the volunteers

:12:18.:12:24.

have said they will carry on using equipment donated by local

:12:25.:12:30.

landlords. I donated the high visibility jackets to support this

:12:31.:12:36.

campaign. I often find rubbhsh piled up outside my properties. What

:12:37.:12:44.

training do they really need to This is spreading across our city.

:12:45.:12:49.

Without volunteers helping, this will get worse. The council says it

:12:50.:12:54.

has a duty of care to anyond carrying out work on its behalf

:12:55.:13:07.

Still to come, memories of Brian Clough who died ten years ago

:13:08.:13:12.

today. He took Forest and Ddrby to the glory and transformed the role

:13:13.:13:16.

of the football manager. Tonight, we will hear from the fans who adored

:13:17.:13:18.

him. The parents of the only identical

:13:19.:13:22.

twins to be diagnosed with Battens Disease have become the first to

:13:23.:13:25.

commission research to find a cure. Andrew Dawkins and Sarah Finney have

:13:26.:13:28.

raised nearly ?40,000 to pax for These nine`year`old twins h`ve

:13:29.:13:50.

Battens Disease. It is one of the rarest forms of the disease, known

:13:51.:14:00.

as C L five. They were registered blind at the age of three. But

:14:01.:14:07.

Battens Disease is a life debilitating illness. It is not

:14:08.:14:12.

good. At present, there is no cure. The parents have raised mondy for

:14:13.:14:23.

research. Money is holding back the research. But we are fighting back.

:14:24.:14:30.

We are making a difference for our children and all other children who

:14:31.:14:36.

have Battens Disease. Andrew ran the London Marathon in April. Hd is

:14:37.:14:42.

currently training for the Robin Hood half marathon. We have had cake

:14:43.:14:48.

sales. A lady had her head shaved. You name it, we have done it. The

:14:49.:14:53.

local community has been fantastic. More than we could dream of. It is

:14:54.:15:01.

just amazing. The twins are the face of the campaign to battle B`ttens

:15:02.:15:18.

Disease. Their parents hope that there will be more research carried

:15:19.:15:19.

out in December. A village in Derbyshire tod`y

:15:20.:15:24.

re`dedicated its Great War Lemorial Cross as an act of commemor`tion to

:15:25.:15:26.

the men who volunteered to fight Barrow`upon`Trent was dubbed the

:15:27.:15:29.

most patriotic village in England due to the high proportion of men

:15:30.:15:32.

who served in the First World War. Today, thousands of people got

:15:33.:15:35.

the chance to learn more about World War One with a giant family

:15:36.:15:38.

friendly roadshow in Nottingham The BBC's World War One at Home

:15:42.:15:44.

demonstration of the rudimentary person to person blood transfusions

:15:45.:15:48.

:15:49.:15:50.

of how pigeons were used to send And there's a recruiting st`tion

:16:04.:16:03.

And if you can't get to Nottingham tomorrow you can catch up whth

the roadshow at BBC Radio Derby's Derbyshird Day

:16:07.:16:08.

Tributes to Brian Clough and some stories from one

:16:09.:16:19.

But we start with the unquestioned big game of the weekend.

:16:20.:16:29.

Leicester City playing host to Manchester United.

:16:30.:16:31.

Of course, the game is a total sell`out and Angela has been

:16:32.:16:34.

Last season, the foxes under fans could only dream of games lhke this.

:16:35.:16:56.

This is underground. We cannot wait. Really looking forward to Stnday.

:16:57.:17:06.

Lee Miller has been at Leicdster as man and wife. He believes they have

:17:07.:17:11.

earned their place in the elite of football. I personally chosd the

:17:12.:17:24.

team that I saw on television when I was younger. It is a big occasion.

:17:25.:17:31.

Money is no object for Manchester United. ?150 million spent the

:17:32.:17:36.

summer, almost 60 million on one player alone. But the foxes say they

:17:37.:17:53.

are in the Premier League so they need to be successful this season.

:17:54.:17:59.

They are a good team. We will respect them. But it is all about

:18:00.:18:09.

what we can do on the day. Hf we produce what we can produce, we will

:18:10.:18:16.

cause them problems. Leicester can more than cut it in the top flight.

:18:17.:18:22.

Vote in the brave. These pl`yers are more than ready.

:18:23.:18:25.

Ten years ago today, we all lost a very special football man.

:18:26.:18:28.

Brian Clough took not one, but two, unfashionable clubs to leagte

:18:29.:18:31.

He transformed what it meant to be a football club manager.

:18:32.:18:40.

This evening, it is the turn of the people of Derby and Forest.

:18:41.:18:53.

The man was a legend, an absolute genius. Brian Clough was thd

:18:54.:19:06.

greatest manager in the world. They thought I was going to take over the

:19:07.:19:09.

football Association if I h`d got the job. And they were right!

:19:10.:19:16.

Tremendous man. Has done a lot for this club and others. A gre`t man.

:19:17.:19:26.

To win the title at both cltbs is unbelievable. It will never be

:19:27.:19:33.

repeated. He got the best ott of people. Even though he was really

:19:34.:19:37.

harsh with them, he brought the best out of them. Get in there! That is

:19:38.:19:47.

what I pay you for! He is everything to me. In other words, I love

:19:48.:20:01.

you... The whole package th`t Ryan Clough is and was, we are vdry

:20:02.:20:10.

fortunate to touch these football clubs. There will never ever be

:20:11.:20:19.

anyone like him. He lives on forever in peoples memories. He will never

:20:20.:20:25.

be forgotten. Football is on the game. It is a game to be pl`yed

:20:26.:20:35.

enjoyed and one. Still my hdart with song... Android by John McGovern.

:20:36.:20:48.

Did you know you were dealing with someone who is going to be regarded

:20:49.:20:59.

in this way so far on? They frighten beta deaths at first. `` he

:21:00.:21:08.

frightened me to death at fhrst As far as the footballers are

:21:09.:21:13.

concerned, he told as things that were common sense. It is a simple

:21:14.:21:18.

game and as long as you didn't complicated and had some abhlity,

:21:19.:21:23.

you would do well. That was true for me and lots of players. If H had not

:21:24.:21:36.

been successful, there would been something wrong with me. I this year

:21:37.:21:42.

bash I was one of the youngdst players in the side bash.

:21:43.:21:54.

There was some talented plaxers in the side. He made me captain. He

:21:55.:22:11.

knew that I had taken heed of the lessons he had given me in how to

:22:12.:22:17.

play football. At Derby County, I started as a wide player. Eventually

:22:18.:22:24.

I came to play in central mhdfield which suited my ability to pass the

:22:25.:22:29.

ball with both feet. What w`s the one thing he told you that xou will

:22:30.:22:33.

never forget? He top me a ldsson when I was 15 about passing the

:22:34.:22:38.

ball. He gave me a lesson s`ying, you know, it is easy to run without

:22:39.:22:48.

the ball so why don't you try passing it? That stood me in good

:22:49.:22:52.

stead. You can see And you can see people paying

:22:53.:22:59.

their tributes to Brian Clotgh Well, Clough's old teams ard both

:23:00.:23:02.

in action tomorrow with Derby hosting Cardiff and table toppers

:23:03.:23:06.

Forest heading to Millwall. In League One, Oldham are

:23:07.:23:08.

the visitors to Notts Countx. Plus the Notts County Ladies host

:23:09.:23:10.

Chelsea tomorrow evening While in League Two,

:23:11.:23:12.

Mansfield welcome Carlisle. As ever, the very best coverage is

:23:13.:23:15.

on your BBC Local Radio station It is the next best thing to being

:23:16.:23:19.

there. Catch up with all the games here

:23:20.:23:21.

on Monday. In rugby,

:23:22.:23:24.

Leicester Tigers are off to Bath. We heard how much Freddie Btrns is

:23:25.:23:26.

looking forward to it yesterday The Tigers wanting to make

Panthers' first crack of thd season That's at home tomorrow

:23:32.:23:35.

in the Challenge Cup. In cricket,

:23:36.:23:38.

a massive well done from all of us It is a county in turmoil btt the

:23:39.:23:41.

boys have managed to win thd treble. One of the East Midlands top

:23:42.:23:47.

crime fighters retired todax. Bodie the Belgian Shepherd has been

:23:48.:24:01.

with Leicestershire Police That makes him one of the longest

:24:02.:24:03.

serving police dogs in the TK. Today,

:24:04.:24:08.

Bodie and his handler were `warded a Chief Superintendents Commendation

:24:09.:24:09.

for their outstanding work. Music.

:24:10.:24:19.

Theme from shaft. Bodie has been involved in lore than

:24:20.:24:40.

200 arrests. They never cease to amaze me. I can't help but smile

:24:41.:24:50.

when I work with police dogs. Recently, Bodie dragged me through

:24:51.:24:55.

an extensive garden to assist someone who had Alzheimer's who did

:24:56.:25:01.

not know where he was or who he was. How the dog phoned him, I don't

:25:02.:25:08.

know. It is things like that. Without a police dog, we probably

:25:09.:25:15.

would never have found him. He has an outstanding service record. He

:25:16.:25:22.

has never been ill for the community love the police dogs. They `ttract

:25:23.:25:29.

attention, provide reassurance and they can do certain things that some

:25:30.:25:39.

people can't do. Police dogs usually retire at the age of nine, but Bodie

:25:40.:25:45.

was so good that he went on until he was aged 12. He is now lookhng

:25:46.:25:53.

forward to putting all his feet up and resting.

:25:54.:26:04.

He looks sweet, but I'm surd he was very intimidating for burgl`rs!

:26:05.:26:16.

It is another day of cloud `nd missed on Saturday. There whll also

:26:17.:26:20.

be some showers around, potdntially quite heavy. An improvement from

:26:21.:26:25.

Sunday. Dry with lots of blte sky and sunshine. You will notice that

:26:26.:26:29.

change as it will feel cooldr and fresher. This evening and tomorrow

:26:30.:26:34.

morning, there is still the risk of some heavy and potentially thundery

:26:35.:26:39.

showers. Some of them will love towards us overnight. A lot of low

:26:40.:26:48.

cloud around. Some isolated showers pushing through. It is the last of

:26:49.:27:00.

the mild nights. 14 degrees. The show was clear way to the E`st

:27:01.:27:08.

tomorrow morning. This is how it will stage in the afternoon. It will

:27:09.:27:15.

eventually brighten up. A cold front row start to push away as wd go

:27:16.:27:18.

through the night on Saturd`y. Behind it, high pressure buhlds

:27:19.:27:24.
