This is East Midlands Today with Dominic Heale and me, Anne Davies.

:00:00.:00:11.

Tonight, the rising number of men in forced marriages.

:00:12.:00:13.

This man was helped by a charity that has now sdt up

:00:14.:00:16.

Also tonight, how fears of an explosion at a chemical factory

:00:17.:00:26.

They call him the Ironman but it's taken nerves of stdel

:00:27.:00:35.

for mum and dad to see Albert through his heart transplant.

:00:36.:00:40.

But soldier Samuel Holmes is in hot water at Buckingham Palace.

:00:41.:01:02.

Good evening and welcome to the programmd.

:01:03.:01:03.

First tonight, a charity saxs it needs to expand its service to help

:01:04.:01:06.

The wider issue became the subject of a new crimin`l

:01:07.:01:11.

It's thought that one in ten victims here in the UK is m`le.

:01:12.:01:17.

One man who's been helped by the Derbyshire`based charity to

:01:18.:01:19.

escape from a forced marriage has been speaking exclusively to

:01:20.:01:22.

We've agreed to hide his iddntity but he wants to share his story

:01:23.:01:35.

He is 22 now but two years ago fled the family

:01:36.:01:38.

home after what he thought was going to be a trip to Pakistan turned out

:01:39.:01:42.

A week before we were meant to head off it came out that I was getting

:01:43.:01:49.

married but came completely out of the blue.

:01:50.:01:50.

I spent the first two days trying to talk them out of it,

:01:51.:01:54.

saying I don't want to go through with it and I'm not interested,

:01:55.:01:57.

They turned around and said I'm not having it.

:01:58.:02:01.

You are going to go through with it and that's that.

:02:02.:02:05.

They helped him to secure a place at a refuge for men in Derbxshire.

:02:06.:02:12.

As a sensitivity to the people staying in the refuge at thd moment,

:02:13.:02:16.

we haven't filmed there and for obvious reasons we can't sax exactly

:02:17.:02:20.

where it is but we can say ht is here in North Derbyshire and helps

:02:21.:02:23.

It's run by this charity which combat domestic violence

:02:24.:02:29.

But it's struggling to cope with demand.

:02:30.:02:40.

In fact, we are now looking to find ` bigger

:02:41.:02:44.

We need to expand, yes, bec`use we have to turn people away and

:02:45.:02:48.

About 10% of people that come forward to us with the issue

:02:49.:02:56.

But it's one of those things we know is massively underreported.

:02:57.:02:59.

available. Had I been alone I would probably have gone back in ` day or

:03:00.:03:13.

two. It was only thanks to the efforts of the police and charities

:03:14.:03:16.

that I realised what my famhly did was definitely wrong and I don't

:03:17.:03:19.

happened. Our victim has contacted his family since he left th`t says

:03:20.:03:24.

He is now making a new life for himself and hopes to return to

:03:25.:03:29.

Next tonight, the owner of a factory has apologised

:03:30.:03:39.

after workers accidentally sparked a huge evacuation exercise hn Derby

:03:40.:03:41.

500 people were forced out of their homes for about eight hours.

:03:42.:03:45.

The alarm was raised when potentially explosive chemicals

:03:46.:03:48.

were mixed together at a factory near the city centre,

:03:49.:03:51.

Police at the chemical alert cordon around Nun Street in Derby

:03:52.:04:01.

Today at the factory at the centre of the chemic`l alert,

:04:02.:04:05.

A health and safety investigation due to get under way.

:04:06.:04:09.

Basically, it was a miscalctlation when we was mixing a chemic`l.

:04:10.:04:14.

As soon as we noticed it, we noticed it straightaway,

:04:15.:04:19.

as soon as we noticed it we rang the authorities really.

:04:20.:04:23.

At around 6pm last night, 240 University of Derby students were

:04:24.:04:27.

250 residents in houses nearby also orderdd out.

:04:28.:04:39.

You do what you are told in these circumstances for

:04:40.:04:44.

Everyone was out of the buildings within five mhnutes.

:04:45.:04:51.

At the end of the day, therd was no harm done and nobody got hurt.

:04:52.:05:02.

With the bomb squad arriving to neutralise the chemicals, students

:05:03.:05:08.

And residents went to a local church.

:05:09.:05:14.

People were able to return `t around 3am.

:05:15.:05:25.

Still to come, could our region become the economic

:05:26.:05:27.

And it's the biggest appeal in the history of Leicestershire's RSPCA.

:05:28.:05:32.

As ?1 million is needed to help some of the counties abandoned animals.

:05:33.:05:47.

Two children's centres in Ddrbyshire could close under proposals revealed

:05:48.:05:49.

The authority needs to save a million pounds and says the centres

:05:50.:05:54.

at Ashbourne and Duffield are in relatively well`off areas, dxpensive

:05:55.:05:58.

There will be further consultation over the centres with

:05:59.:06:03.

The MP Andrew Robathan says he won't be standing again

:06:04.:06:20.

as the Conservative candidate in South Leicestershire.

:06:21.:06:22.

In a statement, he said that after a great deal of soul searchhng he

:06:23.:06:25.

believes it's time to let someone else represent the constitudncy

:06:26.:06:28.

The former Northern Ireland Minister has been an MP

:06:29.:06:30.

More than 70 jobs are to go from Phones 4U stores in thd

:06:31.:06:35.

East Midlands following the company's collapse

:06:36.:06:37.

14 stores across the region will also close.

:06:38.:06:40.

Phones 4U had to call in administrators after EE became

:06:41.:06:42.

the final mobile operator to say it would not sell phones

:06:43.:06:45.

Nationally, around 2,500 st`ff are to lose their jobs.

:06:46.:06:54.

The boy at the centre of a fight to save the East Midlands

:06:55.:06:58.

heart surgery unit is recovdring well after a heart transplant.

:06:59.:07:00.

Albert Tansey has been moved from intensive care.

:07:01.:07:02.

His surgeon at Newcastle's Freeman hospital says he has made alazing

:07:03.:07:05.

It's 200 miles from his family's home but

:07:06.:07:08.

so many good wishes from thd people of Leicestershire, have madd the

:07:09.:07:11.

From Newcastle our health correspondent Rob Sissons rdports.

:07:12.:07:24.

On the move and on the mend. Today his first time in the Freem`n

:07:25.:07:30.

hospital playroom. Out of intensive care. First of all it was mxself and

:07:31.:07:37.

Anita who could be with him and we had aprons on and were washhng our

:07:38.:07:40.

hands every time we went through an airlock. That lasted for about ten

:07:41.:07:48.

days. This is Albert's verdhcts That is pink which we haven't seen

:07:49.:07:55.

since it was four days old. He's always been a dusky blue colour I

:07:56.:07:59.

always say, are you happy? He said yes, very happy. Because I got my

:08:00.:08:08.

new heart. Everything he's gone through in the next couple of

:08:09.:08:12.

weeks, it's been worth it and we've got the dream ticket. He arrived in

:08:13.:08:17.

Newcastle by ambulance. A r`ce against time from his home. The call

:08:18.:08:22.

came out of the blue that there was a heart available and the strgeon

:08:23.:08:25.

today really impressed with his progress. His heart was in ` mess.

:08:26.:08:33.

We know from before but he suffered a heart attack. A great part of his

:08:34.:08:40.

heart was not working. I was surprised how well he was,

:08:41.:08:44.

considering the condition of his heart. When you see Albert, it's

:08:45.:08:50.

great. Particularly when I look at his history. I think he's done

:08:51.:08:57.

fantastically. I'm very ple`sed Who can forget Albert's alternative ice

:08:58.:09:02.

could challenge, viewed 1 mhllion times on social media, with so many

:09:03.:09:07.

messages of support. We are still receiving messages daily of people

:09:08.:09:12.

showing their donor cards, saying they were inspired by Albert. We are

:09:13.:09:17.

keen to carry that on. Therd are few centres in this world who would have

:09:18.:09:22.

attempted his transplant because the blood donor was a different blood

:09:23.:09:26.

group but, all being well, he could be back home again next month. Good

:09:27.:09:29.

old Albert. Next tonight, what's

:09:30.:09:32.

the answer to the English Qtestion? In his speech to the Labour party

:09:33.:09:34.

conference today, Ed Miliband hinted at new devolved economic powers

:09:35.:09:37.

for our big English cities. But could Labour's thinking benefit

:09:38.:09:39.

Northern cities like Manchester Liverpool, Newcastle and Ledds,

:09:40.:09:42.

at the expense of the Midlands? With that in mind,

:09:43.:09:46.

senior politicians from Birlingham and Nottingham are joining forces

:09:47.:09:49.

to ensure the voice of the Lidlands And for starters,

:09:50.:09:51.

they are highlighting poor rail connections between the two cities

:09:52.:09:57.

as a block to economic growth. From the Labour conference

:09:58.:10:01.

in Manchester, here's our From Labour's conference venue

of the North, northern citids, If we're not careful,

:10:44.:10:45.

the Midlands is a bit in So a new pressure group,

:10:46.:10:49.

Midlands Connect, is bringing together council leaders

:10:50.:10:53.

from both the East and West Midlands This is about trying to enstre that

:10:54.:10:56.

the same message is out there Albert Ball,

:10:57.:11:02.

the leader of Birmingham City Council backs HS2 but says hmproved

:11:03.:11:08.

cross`country rail links, especially between Birmingham and Notthngham,

:11:09.:11:10.

is vital and he's got the stpport The roads and railways that connect

:11:11.:11:17.

our regions are simply inaddquate. Albert already talked about

:11:18.:11:24.

Nottingham and Birmingham, both cities relatively good conndctions

:11:25.:11:27.

down to London but really poor But having that case heard loud

:11:28.:11:31.

and clear in Whitehall is why council leaders from the Midlands,

:11:32.:11:38.

East and West, believe it is now A short while ago,

:11:39.:11:41.

I spoke to John at the Labotr conference and asked if the concerns

:11:42.:11:51.

of our Midland cities is justified? I think there's a feeling that

:11:52.:11:56.

the North is stealing a march and the Midlands is in dangdr

:11:57.:11:59.

of being bypassed by the government, The Chancellor George Osborne

:12:00.:12:02.

recently announced plans for creating a northern powdrhouse,

:12:03.:12:06.

allocating ?15 billion of investment Let's talk about HS2,

:12:07.:12:10.

the high`speed rail project. Won't that put the Midlands on the

:12:11.:12:16.

map as far as economic growth is I think HS2 they believe will help

:12:17.:12:20.

investment in the Midlands but it's What they want are improved

:12:21.:12:28.

transport links between the East and West roads and railways

:12:29.:12:35.

and it's not just the politicians who are sayhng it's

:12:36.:12:37.

time for the Midlands to muscle in. I think cities in the north do have

:12:38.:12:41.

that gravity in terms of thdir size. What we've got in the East Lidlands

:12:42.:12:45.

are three very important cities and many important good`sizdd towns

:12:46.:12:49.

as well. We need to use those to

:12:50.:12:52.

our advantage and make thosd work together and make a case for why

:12:53.:12:54.

investment should be coming here and really maximising the potential

:12:55.:12:57.

that we do have in East Midlands. Is it unusual for the East `nd

:12:58.:13:01.

West Midlands to come together Well, I think after Scottish

:13:02.:13:04.

devolution, Midlands cities feel Midland Connect is a way in

:13:05.:13:09.

which they are determined to get The RSPCA in Leicestershire has

:13:10.:13:14.

begun the biggest fundraising It wants to raise a million pounds

:13:15.:13:25.

to build a new veterinary clinic at It says it will mean quicker

:13:26.:13:30.

and cheaper care And it's got high`profile b`cking

:13:31.:13:34.

with a certain Mr Humperdinck This is Benji, who arrived here at

:13:35.:13:53.

the animal Centre last month with a severe skin condition. He h`s to be

:13:54.:13:58.

taken to Leicester for treatment at a local vets. But now the cdntre

:13:59.:14:03.

wants to treat all its anim`ls on site by building its own veterinary

:14:04.:14:08.

clinic. We cannot continue to is sustain the number of animals who

:14:09.:14:11.

come here every year. Every year will we get that's increasing their

:14:12.:14:17.

prices which has a massive dffect on the funding to the centre. Over one

:14:18.:14:21.

third of our money goes on veterinary calls. That is one

:14:22.:14:29.

element we can control. The number of abandoned animals in

:14:30.:14:31.

Leicestershire has risen evdry year for a decade. This centre sdes more

:14:32.:14:36.

than 2000 every year. The ndw clinic will cost ?1 million and have two

:14:37.:14:42.

part`time vets, surgery and x`ray room and the centre is convhnced

:14:43.:14:46.

it's worth the money. They've already raised more than half ?

:14:47.:14:49.

million thanks to corporate sponsors. Now it's over to the last

:14:50.:14:53.

shop public to raise the rest of the million pound target. So little dogs

:14:54.:14:57.

like these can get the care they need. And the campaign has `lready

:14:58.:15:03.

received high`profile support. Hello, this is Engelbert

:15:04.:15:08.

Humperdinck. His dog was rescued by the centre ten years ago. Animals

:15:09.:15:14.

have always played a large part in our family. And I certainly hope

:15:15.:15:18.

that you will be able to rahse the necessary funds. We are verx proud

:15:19.:15:25.

to have him on board. He sent us a message from California to play at

:15:26.:15:27.

our gala day which was well received. Once they are fit and

:15:28.:15:32.

well, the only thing left to do will be to find these animals a new home.

:15:33.:15:38.

How cute is that? Still to come,

:15:39.:15:41.

it's the Autumn equinox. It's officially the start of autumn

:15:42.:15:51.

and we have some rain to get things under way but the summer is fighting

:15:52.:15:55.

back later on this week. I will have all of the details later on in the

:15:56.:15:57.

programme. Winter draws on. What a gloomy

:15:58.:16:06.

introduction. Rugby and the nightmare goes on

:16:07.:16:12.

for Leicester Tigers. Their huge injury list is even

:16:13.:16:16.

bigger with hooker Tom Youngs ruled out for up three months with

:16:17.:16:19.

a shoulder problem. Niall Morris and Geoff Parlhng

:16:20.:16:21.

were also hurt in Saturday's The 45`0 scoreline was

:16:22.:16:24.

their worst in the Premiership. Kirsty Edwards has been catching up

:16:25.:16:30.

with Director of rugby We've got to front up

:16:31.:16:32.

and come back and train The performance is

:16:33.:16:41.

my responsibility. It's my fault how the players play

:16:42.:16:45.

so that's down to me and it's COMMENTATOR: I cannot

:16:46.:16:48.

for the life of me remember when I've seen a Ldicester

:16:49.:16:52.

team this much under pressure. The amount of senior players

:16:53.:16:55.

missing before the game and then We've looked at everything we do

:16:56.:16:59.

here from a training point 90% of their injuries are ehther in

:17:00.:17:03.

play or we have inherited from guys who have signed and got injtred

:17:04.:17:09.

after we signed them or injtries You can't control what happdns

:17:10.:17:12.

on the rugby field sometimes. You've actually got to go ott

:17:13.:17:18.

and do better. It's always a slight double`edged

:17:19.:17:21.

sword so we've been unlucky if that's the right word but wd seem to

:17:22.:17:23.

be unlucky a lot, so we're looking into those things, trying to modify

:17:24.:17:27.

and adjust training to suit, but at some point, you've actually got

:17:28.:17:31.

to go out there and train and try They are good guys, they work hard,

:17:32.:17:34.

and we will make sure this weekend COMMENTATOR:

:17:35.:17:43.

This has to rank as one of the very worst days of Rhchard

:17:44.:17:47.

Cockrell's tenure in charge. In a funny way,

:17:48.:17:51.

can it make you stronger? What doesn't kill you

:17:52.:17:54.

makes you stronger. I'm still alive,

:17:55.:17:55.

so I must be stronger. There's no way of getting ott

:17:56.:17:59.

of 45`0 is 45`0. I'm not pretending it's right

:18:00.:18:10.

or good enough or acceptabld. But it is what it is

:18:11.:18:13.

and now we can sack everybody, and you can start with me, or wd can

:18:14.:18:16.

strap a pair on and get on with it. In football,

it's League Cup time again with Derby taking on fellow Championship

the side but a place in the last 16 is at stake

:18:28.:18:30.

so they are taking it seriotsly The players want to play gales

:18:31.:18:33.

and that's the good thing. We want to be involved in the Cup,

:18:34.:18:39.

so we have a Cup game this week The only difficulty is you get very

:18:40.:18:42.

little time on the training field to do any real

:18:43.:18:46.

preparation leading into thd games. It's more a case of a recovdry

:18:47.:18:49.

and then you have one day to get set The other key action tonight is

in Ice Hockey. Nottingham Panthers with
