You're watching East Midlands Today. so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:00.

Tonight - a man gets 15 years for the sexual

:00:00.:00:00.

Matthew Salmon was found guilty of nine child sex offences. It's been

:00:00.:00:21.

the most horrific catalogue of sexual abuse I've ever investigated

:00:22.:00:27.

on a child. Fears for hundreds of jobs at a Derbyshire distribution

:00:28.:00:31.

company. Everybody is worried about it because there's not many jobs

:00:32.:00:37.

going nowadays. We just don't know. A big rise in type two diabetes, one

:00:38.:00:43.

in 14 now has the condition. And we catch up with the Nottingham

:00:44.:00:47.

Panthers, fresh from their victory in Europe.

:00:48.:00:56.

Good evening and welcome to the programme with Anne Davies

:00:57.:00:58.

First tonight, a man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison

:00:59.:01:04.

for the sexual abuse of a young girl in Derbyshire.

:01:05.:01:08.

Matthew Salmon was found guilty of nine child sex offences,

:01:09.:01:11.

The case only came to light after the NSPCC held a special

:01:12.:01:16.

The lesson encouraged her to come forward and ended

:01:17.:01:22.

This is Geraldine. It was in a classroom like this where a girl

:01:23.:01:37.

finally plucked up the courage to tell her teachers about the sexual

:01:38.:01:42.

abuse she'd been suffering. This week the NSPCC's visiting

:01:43.:01:46.

schoolchildren in Nottingham, but it was three years ago in Derbyshire

:01:47.:01:51.

where concerns were raised about a ten-year-old pupil. The

:01:52.:01:54.

investigation led to the sentencing of this man, 29-year-old Matthew

:01:55.:01:59.

Salmon. Today he was given 15 years in jail and a further year on

:02:00.:02:04.

licence for nine sexual offences against a child. It's been the most

:02:05.:02:13.

horrific catalogue of sexual abuse I've ever had to investigate on a

:02:14.:02:16.

child. Hopefully this will go some way to giving her closure and help

:02:17.:02:18.

the family move on and build for the future. Today the court heard how

:02:19.:02:23.

Matthew Salmon carried out multiple sexual assaults from kissing to the

:02:24.:02:28.

repeated rape of the girl over a two-year period. The abuse started

:02:29.:02:32.

when she was just eight years old. The judge said she had suffered the

:02:33.:02:36.

full spectrum of sexual abuse and that given her age clearly couldn't

:02:37.:02:42.

have understood how serious it was. The NSPCC team which helped to

:02:43.:02:46.

uncover this abuse says cases like this highlight the need to raise

:02:47.:02:52.

awareness. Sometimes people who are abused don't actually realise what's

:02:53.:02:56.

happened to them is wrong because to them it's normal. That's what

:02:57.:03:00.

happens in their life, but they need to understand it's wrong. Parents

:03:01.:03:04.

support it because they know it's important all children can speak out

:03:05.:03:08.

if they are feeling unsafe. They want their children to feel they can

:03:09.:03:13.

do that. Now because they've told us we can spread it to other children.

:03:14.:03:20.

They know what to do. Not many people knew about ChildLine, but now

:03:21.:03:25.

they are coming to different schools, a lot more children know.

:03:26.:03:30.

If we get worried and it's getting too big for us, we can always turn

:03:31.:03:35.

to someone. Today has been a bittersweet moment for the team who

:03:36.:03:38.

say the horrendous nature of cases like this remind them how important

:03:39.:03:40.

their work is. Police have confirmed that a woman's

:03:41.:03:42.

body found in an alleyway in Leicester was hidden

:03:43.:03:45.

in a suitcase. Officers were called

:03:46.:03:49.

to Cromer Street yesterday morning. A 50-year-old man is currently

:03:50.:03:51.

in custody being questioned In a quiet residential street

:03:52.:03:54.

in the Stoneygate area of Leicester, police continued their investigation

:03:55.:04:02.

today on Cromer Street They searched under cars,

:04:03.:04:04.

on the pathway and in doorways. Officers were called to this area

:04:05.:04:13.

at just after 9:30am yesterday. A member of the public had

:04:14.:04:17.

discovered a body in a suitcase. Today, police confirmed

:04:18.:04:21.

that it was a woman who died. People living nearby say they're

:04:22.:04:25.

shocked by what's happened. Normally in the evening time,

:04:26.:04:28.

nine o'clock, ten o'clock, we go freely because we've got

:04:29.:04:34.

takeaways on Evington Road so we go I don't know what has

:04:35.:04:37.

happened, but it's worrying Since yesterday, we've made sure

:04:38.:04:42.

we've been locking our doors properly at the back,

:04:43.:04:48.

the alleyway we check out, and the front doors, we make double

:04:49.:04:52.

sure it's locked properly. You don't want anything

:04:53.:04:56.

like this happening. I don't know who this person

:04:57.:05:01.

was or anything like that. But initially, I was agitated

:05:02.:05:07.

and felt a bit upset. Detectives say they want to hear

:05:08.:05:13.

from anyone who may have seen someone pulling a suitcase

:05:14.:05:16.

in Lyme Street and on the alleyway behind Cromer Street late on Monday

:05:17.:05:20.

afternoon or early evening. Emily Anderson is on Cromer

:05:21.:05:26.

Street this evening. Emily, what's the latest

:05:27.:05:28.

on the investigation? Well, detectives are still

:05:29.:05:34.

questioning a 50-year-old man He was arrested yesterday

:05:35.:05:36.

after the discovery of a woman's body in a suitcase not

:05:37.:05:42.

far from here. Police have until tonight

:05:43.:05:47.

to charge or release him. There's still a police presence

:05:48.:05:52.

tonight on Cromer Street while the investigation continues

:05:53.:05:54.

into the circumstances We'll bring you any

:05:55.:05:56.

updates in our late news. Still to come -

:05:57.:06:08.

in sport: They did it. Victory in Europe for

:06:09.:06:11.

the Nottingham Panthers. And the team - or five of them -

:06:12.:06:19.

will be in our studio Unions claim hundreds of jobs

:06:20.:06:22.

:07:07.:07:11.

the shop workers' union - that the firm's told them that up

jobs definitely going? Well, Alliance Healthcare have

:07:57.:08:07.

sent us a statement. They say that in order to ensure

business growth and meet the needs of customers,

:08:13.:08:14.

they need to make improvements So they're making changes -

as small as possible, but until they finish a consultation

month. Next tonight, new figures show that

:09:13.:09:17.

one in every 14 people in the East Midlands now

:09:18.:09:23.

has type 2 diabetes. The condition can lead to major

health complications and costs But it can be prevented through

:09:27.:09:28.

changes to diet and lifestyle. Now mobile diabetes units

:09:29.:09:36.

are touring various locations around the region to offer

advice and tests. Despite the chill, people queued up

they explain everything. Basically I've got to lose some

that happens to you so you can't do anything about it,

:10:25.:10:32.

it just happens. Whereas this is an example

:10:33.:10:35.

of something that is very much about what you do,

:10:36.:10:38.

or what you don't do. If you don't exercise and if you

:10:39.:10:43.

don't look at your weight. It's estimated that one in every 14

:10:44.:10:48.

people across the East Midlands has type 2 diabetes -

:10:49.:10:51.

an increase over almost 25% over In the last ten years the increases

:10:52.:10:53.

have been over what we've predicted and so I would expect

:10:54.:11:02.

that we will continue to see this rapid rise in the number of people

:11:03.:11:06.

with type 2 diabetes, which is why it's really important

:11:07.:11:09.

we identify people early and put strategies in place to prevent

against him. We will state our outrage to this

:11:49.:12:06.

enquiry that our late father is the only individual singled out for

:12:07.:12:11.

separate treatment. As long as there is a strand in his name there is an

:12:12.:12:17.

assumption of guilt. Our late father gave a lifetime's service to the

public and he is dead and cannot defend his reputation.

Derby's Market Hall remains closed after a man fell to his death

:12:25.:12:27.

He'd been working high up inside the hall, and was taken

:12:28.:12:31.

to the Royal Derby Hospital but died of his injuries.

:12:32.:12:34.

The Health and Safety Executive has been informed.

Derby City Council, which owns the building, says the hall

New signs have been put up at the bottom of Horsefair Gate

:12:45.:12:50.

Everyone so far has been sent a warning note, but in future,

The man in charge of resettling vulnerable Syrian families

:12:58.:13:07.

in the East Midlands says they've been so "overwhelmed" by public

:13:08.:13:10.

offers of help that they've had to turn some of the offers down.

:13:11.:13:14.

However, some refugees are struggling to get

:13:15.:13:17.

English tuition or places at local primary schools.

:13:18.:13:21.

Our social affairs correspondent, Jeremy Ball, is here.

:13:22.:13:23.

They're refugees from the war who've been flown here directly

:13:24.:13:28.

The Government's trying to help them get jobs,

:13:29.:13:32.

and to integrate, by spreading them around the country.

:13:33.:13:37.

You might remember the Salehs, who arrived in Mansfield a year ago.

:13:38.:13:40.

They're among almost 300 Syrians who've been resettled

:13:41.:13:42.

And at this meeting in Leicester, councils from across the region

:13:43.:13:50.

heard that some refugees are traumatised, and how some local

:13:51.:13:52.

communities have given them a welcome that's been too

:13:53.:13:55.

No sooner has a family stepped off a plane than other families,

:13:56.:14:03.

local families, have wanted to approach them, cook

:14:04.:14:05.

On occasions we've just had to say to people,

:14:06.:14:08.

It's not a question of never, it's really just about giving people

:14:09.:14:12.

But isn't this resettlement scheme a challenge for local councils?

:14:13.:14:18.

Because while they're funded by the foreign aid budget,

:14:19.:14:22.

we heard there's been a big problem getting school places.

:14:23.:14:28.

That's left different children, from the same families, scattered

:14:29.:14:30.

We also heard complaints about repeated cuts to English

:14:31.:14:38.

language classes, and how that's making it harder for

:14:39.:14:40.

If money is invested in refugees when they arrive in this country,

:14:41.:14:47.

they will soon become independent of the state.

:14:48.:14:50.

They'll be able to seek jobs, their children

:14:51.:14:52.

So it's part of the package and it's an important part that really

:14:53.:14:58.

Because of that, almost 100 volunteers in Leicester are teaching

:14:59.:15:05.

And in a few weeks time, our councils are being asked to take

:15:06.:15:11.

Children from across Derbyshire have been taking part in a campaign

:15:12.:15:20.

The Bishop of Derby held a summit to raise awareness of the issue

:15:21.:15:26.

at the city's cathedral with ten primary schools involved.

:15:27.:15:29.

I felt sad because I've got things that I want,

:15:30.:15:36.

Children like me should be able to play and get a good education,

:15:37.:15:44.

but they're not, they're doing hard work.

:15:45.:15:47.

It makes me feel sad and lucky at the same time.

:15:48.:15:51.

According to a report last year, there are 45 million people

:15:52.:15:54.

across the world living in modern slavery.

:15:55.:15:57.

It's a difficult and challenging subject to talk

:15:58.:15:59.

So how do you begin explaining it to children?

:16:00.:16:05.

I began the session by saying, "How many of you always

:16:06.:16:08.

Most admitted they don't because to be a person,

:16:09.:16:11.

you have your own ideas, you negotiate with your

:16:12.:16:14.

Here are people, children included, who never have a choice what to do

:16:15.:16:19.

or how to spend their time, or the resources to

:16:20.:16:21.

So I hope they're getting a sense of that.

:16:22.:16:27.

Several schools from across Derbyshire are taking

:16:28.:16:30.

part in this campaign, led by the Bishop of Derby,

:16:31.:16:33.

They've been here to learn, but the aim is that they will

:16:34.:16:38.

teach their schoolmates about it, too.

:16:39.:16:40.

Modern slavery is a bad thing because they don't

:16:41.:16:42.

It really inspires me to tell people that modern slavery

:16:43.:16:47.

is still going around the UK and other places.

:16:48.:16:52.

Today's event marks the start of six months of awareness-raising

:16:53.:16:55.

Still to come this evening - the rise of the community cafe.

:16:56.:17:08.

It's an eatery that ticks all the right boxes,

:17:09.:17:10.

from cutting down on food waste to helping people with

:17:11.:17:13.

Sorry that isn't the right picture. Moving swiftly on. We'll have the

:17:14.:17:29.

right pictures later. Time now for sport -

:17:30.:17:30.

when we will be mainly Held by Davy Clarke, assistant

:17:31.:17:42.

manager for the Panthers. How does it feel to be holding that?

:17:43.:17:47.

Fantastic, to bring it back to Nottingham is important and we are

:17:48.:17:50.

pleased to be the first team in Britain to do so. Such a brilliant

:17:51.:17:55.

thing to do. It's not just you, there are lots of other Panthers

:17:56.:18:03.

over there as well. We've got the entire Nottingham Panthers British

:18:04.:18:08.

contingent here. What they did was make history, the first British club

:18:09.:18:12.

ever to win a European trophy. Welcome to the studio. Let's talk

:18:13.:18:21.

about the scale of this achievement. Rob, Nottingham boy, how does it

:18:22.:18:27.

feel to have done this? Huge. The one thing we need over here for

:18:28.:18:31.

British ice hockey is exposure and winning this trophy is one of the

:18:32.:18:36.

things that will do that. It has done that. Rob, you scored the two

:18:37.:18:40.

final goals of the tournament. We can look at them now on the screen.

:18:41.:18:46.

This is used scoring. As they are going in, are you getting that

:18:47.:18:52.

feeling? Do you feel the history? Yeah, the last one we knew we'd won

:18:53.:18:57.

it when it went in. It was a good feeling to score and it's a huge

:18:58.:19:01.

achievement for the team and British hockey as a whole. How long do the

:19:02.:19:06.

celebrations go on for? A couple of days! You earned it! The final

:19:07.:19:13.

person we saw on the glass was Nicky, who had to come home because

:19:14.:19:18.

his wife had given birth, then he flew back out again. What does it do

:19:19.:19:23.

for the team? It gives huge energy to the team. He is well rested and

:19:24.:19:28.

it shows huge commitment to every person in the room. Coming back

:19:29.:19:31.

after having a newborn baby, it definitely shows commitment and it

:19:32.:19:38.

was great to get him back. Ollie, you're from down south but you've

:19:39.:19:42.

been in Nottingham for some time. In terms of junior development, what

:19:43.:19:46.

does it do in terms of selling the sport? It's huge, it gives the kids

:19:47.:19:55.

something to aspire to. We all started young in Britain. The

:19:56.:19:59.

exposure is really good and I hope a lot of kids get involved and it's

:20:00.:20:03.

given them something to aspire to. Ollie has a fat lip from an

:20:04.:20:09.

injection, not from anything that happened on the ice! Rop, the rest

:20:10.:20:16.

of the season, league play-offs, Challenge Cup, what can it do for

:20:17.:20:21.

you? A lot. Confidence is a big thing in any sport and you can't get

:20:22.:20:25.

more confident than winning this trophy. We didn't get much time off,

:20:26.:20:30.

we played in Belfast on Friday as at home on Sunday. We are on a roll and

:20:31.:20:35.

we will look to keep that going. Fantastic, thank you for coming in.

:20:36.:20:40.

Great to be out there with you and watching you do it. Thank you very

:20:41.:20:41.

much indeed. Some other sports news -

:20:42.:20:44.

Leicester's three time Masters snooker champion Mark Selby had

:20:45.:20:47.

a real fight to get past his first round opponent this

:20:48.:20:50.

year, Mark Williams. The world number one kept taking

:20:51.:20:51.

the lead, but kept finding Selby finally won in

:20:52.:20:54.

the deciding frame. And a career-best performance

:20:55.:20:56.

for Nottingham-based tennis It came at the Australian Open

:20:57.:21:06.

where Evans was able to beat the world number seven

:21:07.:21:11.

Marin Cilic 3-1. It was even better because early

:21:12.:21:15.

in the match Evans was Especially the circumstances,

:21:16.:21:18.

how I did it. It was tough and I had to fight

:21:19.:21:26.

quite hard to get through. The situation and the rankings,

:21:27.:21:30.

definitely the best. Whatever he does now will be making

:21:31.:21:45.

history, just like the Panthers. Fantastic, congratulations.

:21:46.:21:52.

Next, have you heard of a community cafe?

:21:53.:21:53.

Well, some use surplus food from supermarkets,

:21:54.:21:55.

but all offer a good meal and a chance to meet other people.

:21:56.:21:58.

By the end of this year, the local authority in Nottingham

:21:59.:22:01.

aims to have a community cafe in every part of the city -

:22:02.:22:04.

not least because these sort of eateries can also help people

:22:05.:22:07.

Howard is definitely part of the community here.

:22:08.:22:11.

The Crocus cafe in Nottingham is a not-for-profit cafe

:22:12.:22:13.

Howard was a professional musician before poor health took its toll.

:22:14.:22:21.

I'm rehabilitating from illness, hepatitis C, and I come

:22:22.:22:24.

Currently, there are 20 similar community cafes,

:22:25.:22:31.

or "superkitchens", that operate in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

:22:32.:22:35.

Chris volunteers here and it's improving his life.

:22:36.:22:39.

I suffer from bipolar, which obviously is a mental

:22:40.:22:41.

One of the main things it does is take away a lot of your stability

:22:42.:22:47.

I've been volunteering here for the past few years,

:22:48.:22:54.

and I don't think it's a coincidence that it's coincided with me

:22:55.:22:57.

People have the option of giving some extra money,

:22:58.:23:00.

or paying it forward, so that another customer

:23:01.:23:02.

You can pay for your own meal and then you add on a certain amount

:23:03.:23:10.

of money and then that will go towards somebody who

:23:11.:23:12.

It's just nice to relax and support your local facilities.

:23:13.:23:19.

The kind of social enterprise element of all of this,

:23:20.:23:23.

which seeks to give something back to the community, really.

:23:24.:23:30.

The Crocus cafe does make some use of surplus food.

:23:31.:23:33.

If there is any way we can stop food waste, it's amazing.

:23:34.:23:43.

We get things from Fair Share, the supermarket scheme,

:23:44.:23:47.

so we get food from them and make things out of those.

:23:48.:23:50.

The city council says it is supporting an increase

:23:51.:23:52.

in social eating and community cafes throughout 2017.

:23:53.:24:04.

I hope you've eaten at home because my stomach is going mad!

:24:05.:24:10.

Amazing idea. Now it's time for the weather. Not

:24:11.:24:15.

so amazing. Quite boring, I'm afraid. Hello.

:24:16.:24:22.

Quite great, misty and murky. It's been like that for a good few days.

:24:23.:24:30.

Really misty and murky in Derbyshire today. The same for Leicestershire

:24:31.:24:35.

and Nottinghamshire. Cloudy, grey and outbreaks of light rain and

:24:36.:24:40.

drizzle. That is how it will stay as we head through the evening and

:24:41.:24:44.

overnight. What's the bigger picture? High pressure is firmly in

:24:45.:24:49.

charge so it's settled. This little front is giving us outbreaks of

:24:50.:24:55.

patchy rain and drizzle, and cloud as well. Wind is light and

:24:56.:25:00.

temperatures aren't doing badly. It's quite calm, but you have to

:25:01.:25:05.

ignore the cloud. Patchy outbreaks of rain and drizzle for the hills

:25:06.:25:09.

and in the West. Mist and fog forming. Like wins, but because of

:25:10.:25:15.

the cloud blanket, we won't get a frost. Temperatures of six or seven

:25:16.:25:20.

Celsius. That was the high for today. Tomorrow morning, cloudy,

:25:21.:25:26.

misty and murky. You get the theme. Groundhog Day. It will be drizzly

:25:27.:25:32.

for some of us. Light winds and temperatures not doing so badly.

:25:33.:25:37.

Around seven or eight Celsius in the afternoon. Again, settled, it

:25:38.:25:42.

remains the same for Friday. High-pressure still in charge so

:25:43.:25:48.

still a lot of cloud and drizzle. Temperatures not bad on Friday, but

:25:49.:25:53.

as we get into the weekend, we start to see it becoming colder. At the

:25:54.:25:59.

minute it looks like possibly on Saturday it will start brightening

:26:00.:26:02.

and there is hope for a little bit of sunshine! Hopefully!

:26:03.:26:09.

We are now going to make you cry. We are mean. It's your last East

:26:10.:26:15.

Midlands today weather. I am leaving. I am off to York radio. I

:26:16.:26:23.

have faced the radio! During breakfast. See you tonight so!

:26:24.:26:53.

Hello. I hope you're well. I really do.

:26:54.:26:57.

Because if you're not, then chances are the NHS won't be able to

:26:58.:27:01.

look after you as well as it should. And that's wrong.

:27:02.:27:05.
