And now, the news for the East Midlands.

:00:13.:00:15.

First tonight, Rolls Royce has been fined ?200,000, and nearly

:00:16.:00:22.

the same again in costs, after four of its staff came in contact with

:00:23.:00:26.

radioactive parts at one of its nuclear submarine sites in Derby.

:00:27.:00:30.

They are said now to have a "very, very small" increased chancd

:00:31.:00:35.

Some of the workers at the centre of the radiation alert at

:00:36.:00:46.

They came to Leicester Crown Court with a GMB union representative

:00:47.:00:54.

The company was fined ?200,000 and ordered to pay ?176,000 in costs.

:00:55.:01:01.

The employees were exposed to radiation

:01:02.:01:04.

We very much regret that thhs event took place in 2011 ` especi`lly

:01:05.:01:12.

because of the impact it has had on the individuals involved.

:01:13.:01:16.

We take the health and safety of our work force very seriously

:01:17.:01:20.

We treat these things as the highest priority.

:01:21.:01:25.

Welders in the clean room sdnt their work overnight for chdcking

:01:26.:01:32.

The radioactive source was tsed in gamma radiography to look

:01:33.:01:40.

When it came back to the welders the next morning,

:01:41.:01:48.

they noticed a screw`sized object on the welded component.

:01:49.:01:51.

The welders did not know wh`t the item was and passed it `round.

:01:52.:01:54.

One man even wiped it on his overalls.

:01:55.:01:56.

After a radiographer came into the clean room,

:01:57.:01:58.

and his personal radiation `larm went off, some of the staff were

:01:59.:02:01.

Three years on no`one has health problels

:02:02.:02:09.

but one man went on sleeping tablets to prevent flashbacks.

:02:10.:02:11.

In the back of his mind, of course, the cancer risk.

:02:12.:02:14.

The biggest doses were to their hands and fortunately there

:02:15.:02:16.

are no immediate effects from the radiation on their hands.

:02:17.:02:19.

The whole body doses were qtite small, below the dose limit.

:02:20.:02:21.

There is a very small incre`se chance of developing cancer.

:02:22.:02:24.

The judge said that the casd fell into the negligent catagory.

:02:25.:02:29.

The company says it has now changed procedures.

:02:30.:02:32.

Mike O'Sullivan, BBC East Midlands Today, Derby.

:02:33.:02:37.

Criminals trying to steal home`grown drugs are smashing their wax

:02:38.:02:41.

into the wrong houses by mistake and threatening

:02:42.:02:44.

There have been more than 100 of the so`called "home invasions" in

:02:45.:02:50.

Our social affairs correspondent, Jeremy Ball, has the details.

:02:51.:02:57.

The man who smashed his way into Mohammed's home was trying to steal

:02:58.:03:02.

He tried to shut the door on my hand.

:03:03.:03:07.

It was two in the morning and he targeted the wrong property.

:03:08.:03:10.

They are high on drugs and xou do not know what they are hiding.

:03:11.:03:18.

The attacker was looking for a crop like this ` home`grown cann`bis

:03:19.:03:25.

It has become a cottage indtstry in this district, as producdrs

:03:26.:03:28.

spread the risk by hiding plants in several different homes.

:03:29.:03:31.

But drugs are a viable commodity, so they are being targeted

:03:32.:03:34.

They will pick the most likely house but they get

:03:35.:03:40.

it wrong and end up invading houses where there are young children

:03:41.:03:43.

We are talking about people entering properties

:03:44.:03:49.

127 so`called home invasions were reported to Nottinghamshire Police

:03:50.:04:00.

In 50 of those raids, people were attacked and injured.

:04:01.:04:05.

Today, detectives are beginning a month`long campaign to tackle

:04:06.:04:07.

They are appealing to neighbours, postal workers and binmen to report

:04:08.:04:13.

They are warning landlords that they could face jail

:04:14.:04:17.

They are also making a direct appeal to the people who grow cann`bis

:04:18.:04:23.

Sometimes people produce cannabis for others.

:04:24.:04:27.

They are in effect held under duress.

:04:28.:04:30.

That person asking for the cannabis to be grown will

:04:31.:04:35.

get others to rob that cann`bis and take it for themselves `nd then

:04:36.:04:38.

We will deal with these people as victims.

:04:39.:04:45.

For those who do not come forward, a warning that there will bd more

:04:46.:04:48.

raids, as this illegal cott`ge industry becomes a police priority.

:04:49.:04:53.

Jeremy Ball, East Midlands Today, Nottingham.

:04:54.:04:58.

Leicestershire's police and crime commissioner has ordered a

:04:59.:05:00.

review into the force's handling of historic child abuse allegations.

:05:01.:05:05.

It follows the high profile cases in Rotherham.

:05:06.:05:08.

Sir Clive Loader says he wants to reassure victims

:05:09.:05:10.

and the public that all child abuse claims, whether historic or current,

:05:11.:05:14.

A report on cases going back to the 1990s should be finished

:05:15.:05:20.

Nottinghamshire Police are going to start putting stop

:05:21.:05:24.

Last month, the Home Secret`ry announced measures to improve

:05:25.:05:29.

the way police use stop and search powers and make it more transparent.

:05:30.:05:34.

One method was to give more detailed information about it

:05:35.:05:37.

Nottinghamshire is one of two forces taking part in the trial

:05:38.:05:42.

They will establish what data is important to the public

:05:43.:05:44.

Just time for a look at a c`r built to do 600 miles an hotr.

:05:45.:05:53.

Well, it won't get you to work tomorrow, but the model cars like

:05:54.:05:58.

School pupils in Nottinghamshire hope they are going to break

:05:59.:06:05.

the model car world speed rdcord, which stands at 287 miles pdr hour.

:06:06.:06:09.

They have been testing the rocket`powered vehicles ahead

:06:10.:06:13.

If you want to take another, slower, look at those test runs, we have put

:06:14.:06:22.

a couple of them on our Facdbook page ` there is the address.

:06:23.:06:27.

So, it is goodbye from me, but here is the weather now.

:06:28.:06:59.
