It is almost 6:30pm. Our top stories. Claire Nagle's parents

:00:07.:00:12.

remember them murdered daughter. On the day her funeral takes place, the

:00:13.:00:18.

circumstances of her death still hold them. We could see the signs

:00:19.:00:28.

and we knew why and it was like torture. Also tonight, 60 trains and

:00:29.:00:35.

a contract worth billions. Derby's train makers are set to benefit from

:00:36.:00:41.

HS2. Plus, not is thinking about bidding

:00:42.:00:44.

to become European capital of culture.

:00:45.:00:49.

And the artist using smoke grenades and even a missile launcher to

:00:50.:00:51.

create these paintings. Good evening and welcome

:00:52.:01:00.

to the programme with Anne Davies First tonight, on the day

:01:01.:01:03.

of her funeral the parents of a Derbyshire woman at the centre

:01:04.:01:06.

of a murder investigation say they still haven't come

:01:07.:01:10.

to terms with her death. 38-year-old Claire Nagle

:01:11.:01:13.

was found fatally injured Her husband died the same day

:01:14.:01:16.

after a collision with a lorry. Police believe the two

:01:17.:01:21.

deaths are linked. Her parents have been speaking

:01:22.:01:24.

to our reporter Navtej Johal. I didn't know they were there

:01:25.:01:34.

and there was her her daughter. And I just couldn't believe

:01:35.:01:37.

that they were there, you know! A surprise birthday

:01:38.:01:41.

party for her mum. The mother of five was studying

:01:42.:01:45.

to become the mental health nurse. Last month, she was found

:01:46.:01:53.

at her home in Borrowash by police with serious injuries

:01:54.:01:57.

and later died in hospital. Police have linked Claire's death

:01:58.:02:01.

to that of her husband Vincent, who died after colliding

:02:02.:02:04.

with a lorry on the M1 All the way up, all we could see

:02:05.:02:06.

were signs saying that the M1 was shut, and we knew why,

:02:07.:02:13.

and it was like torture all the way. Things like this only

:02:14.:02:17.

happened on the news. You would never

:02:18.:02:19.

in a million years, you know, An inquest into Claire's death

:02:20.:02:25.

will resume later this year. Her parents, who have come

:02:26.:02:33.

from their home in Wales for Claire's funeral today,

:02:34.:02:37.

hope she will be remembered for the woman she was,

:02:38.:02:40.

rather than the circumstances The hardest thing I will miss is

:02:41.:03:00.

when she was in her car, she would put her phone on the loudspeaker and

:03:01.:03:05.

the kids would be singing to me. Wouldn't she? Claire's 22-year-old

:03:06.:03:12.

son who was reportedly attacked with a nail gun on the day she died is

:03:13.:03:16.

now out of hospital. Her parents also told Claire's two youngest

:03:17.:03:21.

children about what happened to their mum and dad. It was the

:03:22.:03:26.

hardest thing to prepare for and when it came down to it, I don't

:03:27.:03:30.

think they really understood anyway. We are going to miss her so much.

:03:31.:03:33.

All the family will. Next tonight, Derby stands every

:03:34.:03:39.

chance of becoming a major beneficiary of a ?2.7 billion

:03:40.:03:42.

contract to build trains That's according to the Transport

:03:43.:03:45.

Secretary Chris Grayling who announced the huge contract

:03:46.:03:50.

for 60 trains during Mr Grayling said he can't yet

:03:51.:03:54.

specify a UK manufacturer such But he stressed that Derby,

:03:55.:03:59.

the centre of the UK's rail Meeting rail engineers working

:04:00.:04:04.

at the cutting edge - the Transpost Secretary sees

:04:05.:04:13.

a laser test rig that can be mounted on a train, being checked

:04:14.:04:16.

at Balfour Beatty Rail in Derby. It was here that he chose

:04:17.:04:20.

to announce that these artists impressions may soon be replaced

:04:21.:04:23.

by more current designs, given that rail firms,

:04:24.:04:26.

both in the UK and overseas, are now being asked to tender

:04:27.:04:29.

for a ?2.75 billion contract to build 60 trains

:04:30.:04:33.

for the new HS2 route. Are you looking for a UK

:04:34.:04:38.

manufacturer of them? We're not allowed to specify

:04:39.:04:41.

the nationality of the manufacturer and indeed we expect to see

:04:42.:04:45.

an international presence in doing this, but I'm very clear that these

:04:46.:04:48.

trends need to be more than And so I want to see,

:04:49.:04:52.

a skill-building contract. It was this desire for HS2 contracts

:04:53.:05:03.

to bring thousands of young people into the rail industry which brought

:05:04.:05:06.

Mr Grayling to Balfour Beatty, a firm already employing

:05:07.:05:08.

dozens of graduates, We have developed this system onto

:05:09.:05:22.

lines and are looking to look -- roll it out across the network. I

:05:23.:05:32.

wanted work experience with them on I can continue into the future.

:05:33.:05:41.

Bombarding a told us today they are keeping a close eye on the process

:05:42.:05:46.

but Chris Grayling things Derby will in a fit from the contracts

:05:47.:05:51.

generally. Derby is a great centre for our Railways, whether it is

:05:52.:05:54.

technology which makes the railways better or maintaining the railways

:05:55.:06:00.

more effectively, whether it is the trains coming out, this is a great

:06:01.:06:03.

centre for railways and I have no doubt this city will play at

:06:04.:06:11.

important part in the HS2 contract. The contract will be awarded in

:06:12.:06:13.

2019. Still to come on the programme

:06:14.:06:18.

tonight: Our health correspondent will be here looking at the latest

:06:19.:06:21.

on the winter pressure A man's been sentenced to life

:06:22.:06:23.

in prison, for murdering another Richard Bernard was stabbed

:06:24.:06:32.

bars, after being sentenced A jury at Leicester Crown Court has

:06:48.:06:50.

been sent out, to decide whether or not a 31-year-old woman

is guilty of the manslaughter Chaunfang Zen denies

violently shaking Phoebe Go She'd been babysitting the infant

:07:01.:07:08.

at her flat in the Leicestershire village of Lutterworth on the 22nd

:07:09.:07:12.

March 2015 when the court heard the baby suffered

:07:13.:07:16.

a catastrophic brain injury. Police in Lincolnshire are deploying

:07:17.:07:18.

special constables to help tackle the growing problem

:07:19.:07:25.

of hare coursing. The illegal blood sport

:07:26.:07:27.

involves gangs often trespassing onto private land,

:07:28.:07:30.

to allow their dogs Farmers and landowners say

:07:31.:07:34.

some areas are becoming like the Wild West, with 75

:07:35.:07:38.

incidents reported last week alone. Police in the Derbyshire Dales have

:07:39.:07:42.

moved in with their colleagues NHS England has confirmed that two

:07:43.:07:51.

of our hospital trusts were on the highest state of alert

:07:52.:07:53.

last week as winter pressures Delays getting patients home,

:07:54.:07:56.

coupled with increased demand in accident and emergency,

:07:57.:07:59.

have piled on the pressure With the latest, let's talk to our

:08:00.:08:01.

health correspondent Rob Sissons. So Rob, no early end

:08:02.:08:06.

in sight to the strain The NHS is facing unprecedented

:08:07.:08:20.

record demand and we are seeing it on the front line. The latest

:08:21.:08:25.

evidence is provided by information released today from NHS England. If

:08:26.:08:30.

we take a look at the two trusts in our region, the United Lincolnshire

:08:31.:08:33.

hospitals and festivals like hospitals.

:08:34.:08:39.

It shows hospitals in Lincolnshire and Leicester facing the most

:08:40.:08:42.

difficulties with the strain the service is under put Opel

:08:43.:08:44.

So, what does that mean - there is increased potential

:08:45.:08:47.

for patient safety and care to be compromised?

:08:48.:08:51.

That is the official definition and obviously the pressure is worrying.

:08:52.:08:58.

What about the other hospitals in the area? Other hospitals are seeing

:08:59.:09:03.

sustained pressure, they are under strain as well, but not at that

:09:04.:09:07.

level but I can tell you in Nottingham this week on Wednesday,

:09:08.:09:13.

the trust was on black alert, the trusts that runs the Queens medical

:09:14.:09:16.

Centre here and butting's City Hospital. A again under pressure.

:09:17.:09:24.

Lots more work for the staff on the front line. Can the hospitals cope?

:09:25.:09:30.

We are hearing lots of interpretations about the winter

:09:31.:09:34.

pressures. You will have seen it in the media. They have been

:09:35.:09:38.

descriptions of the NHS in meltdown, some trusts say they are coping. NHS

:09:39.:09:44.

providers, a number and organisation for hospitals and trust says the

:09:45.:09:48.

truth is probably somewhere in between. But what we are seeing on

:09:49.:09:53.

the front line is the staff having to put in outstanding efforts,

:09:54.:09:57.

having to work really hard, and they say that in the long one is

:09:58.:10:00.

unsustainable. People cannot keep working at that level month after

:10:01.:10:05.

month. What is the advice from the NHS? The advice is to always think

:10:06.:10:10.

twice about whether you need to go to A I sound like a rope on

:10:11.:10:15.

record. It sounds obvious but they still see people that don't need to

:10:16.:10:20.

be there. Ian Bice is if you are unsure about where to go, there are

:10:21.:10:24.

so many places to access the health service, is to ring 111. They can

:10:25.:10:29.

let you know the best place for you to end up.

:10:30.:10:35.

Traders have been allowed back into Derby's Market Hall this afternoon.

:10:36.:10:38.

The building was closed on Wednesday after a worker died

:10:39.:10:41.

He's been named as 37-year-old William Ball from Sandiacre.

:10:42.:10:44.

The building will reopen to the public tomorrow morning.

:10:45.:10:58.

Police in the Derbyshire Dales have moved in with their colleagues

:10:59.:11:01.

at the Fire and Rescue service, to save money.

:11:02.:11:03.

In 2015, the constabulary announced Ashbourne police station would be

:11:04.:11:05.

Yesterday, it closed its doors for the final time.

:11:06.:11:09.

Officers will now be based at the nearby fire station.

:11:10.:11:11.

It's hoped the move will improve collaboration

:11:12.:11:13.

Nottingham's lace collection is set to go on display at museums

:11:14.:11:17.

The arts council has awarded ?75,000 to the city council for the project.

:11:18.:11:21.

During the industrial revolution, Nottingham emerged as a world

:11:22.:11:25.

The funding will mean the collections will eventually

:11:26.:11:30.

be viewable in places like Nottingham Castle

:11:31.:11:33.

A small group have gathered in Nottingham to protest the

:11:34.:11:56.

organisation -- the inaugural race bash at the inauguration of Donald

:11:57.:11:59.

Trump. They save they will not be silenced in the face of

:12:00.:12:06.

objectionable views. If you want to show the tree, you will have to put

:12:07.:12:09.

up with the opposition to the good tree. He said he wanted to heal

:12:10.:12:14.

divisions, and you are heartened by that? He also said we need to take

:12:15.:12:20.

back our jobs and protect our bodies in America it is all about us, us,

:12:21.:12:25.

us. Any foreigner is like an alien to him. And now, for something

:12:26.:12:29.

completely different. East Midlands Today understands that

:12:30.:12:33.

Nottingham is seriously considering a bid to be

:12:34.:12:35.

European Capital of Culture. The last UK city to hold the title

:12:36.:12:37.

was Liverpool nine years ago and it'll be Britain's turn

:12:38.:12:40.

again in 2023. Our political reporter, Peter Saull,

:12:41.:12:42.

has been weighing up Nottingham's cultural legacy is

:12:43.:12:57.

known all over the world, largely in fact to this man, but should the

:12:58.:13:00.

city and for one of the most prestigious prizes prizes around?

:13:01.:13:07.

I think we've got the capacity and the video as the city to pull this

:13:08.:13:14.

off. It won't be easy and there are many people to convince it is the

:13:15.:13:18.

right way forward but what I would say is if we were to go forward with

:13:19.:13:23.

a date, we have the ingredients to make something great happen. A few

:13:24.:13:29.

weeks ago, a few celebrations in Hull which picked Lester as UK City

:13:30.:13:33.

of Culture. The European accolade is an altogether good deal. Last held

:13:34.:13:39.

in Britain by Liverpool in 2008. It is really known as the point in time

:13:40.:13:45.

when Liverpool got their Mojo back. We've got huge truism in the city,

:13:46.:13:50.

it feels like the hotels are being built every day. The city has new

:13:51.:13:55.

confidence. Nottingham has a lot going for it, not least the

:13:56.:13:58.

contemporary art gallery, it will face fierce competition from Leeds,

:13:59.:14:04.

Milton Keynes and Dundee. And other major cities are expect to follow

:14:05.:14:09.

them. Key to winning will be getting the whole city to back that good. I

:14:10.:14:14.

think it is a very good dear. It attracts people to be area. I think

:14:15.:14:20.

we've got a lot to offer. I can't see what difference it will make. I

:14:21.:14:27.

haven't lived in another UK city which for this size hats had so many

:14:28.:14:32.

independent art project. Everyone can learn a bit more and get

:14:33.:14:35.

together, I think it is brilliant. There is plenty to iron out. How

:14:36.:14:40.

will the bid to be financed? What about Brexit? That shouldn't be up

:14:41.:14:45.

problem. Previous winner include right to pick and Istanbul,. Brexit

:14:46.:14:55.

getting everywhere! It does. Well, talking of cultural

:14:56.:14:59.

things, look out for this Art's hot new talent warms

:15:00.:15:01.

to his work as he plays You did need to take cover for that!

:15:02.:15:22.

Stayed tuned. Right, let's have some sport. Natalie, who is buying? Who

:15:23.:15:25.

is selling? First, we start at Nottingham Forest

:15:26.:15:27.

after a week of more turmoil In a space of week a proposed sale

:15:28.:15:30.

fell through, another manager was sacked and the clubs captain has

:15:31.:15:35.

been was sold. So, where now for Forest and it's

:15:36.:15:37.

owner Fawaz Al Hasawi? Sunny skies over the city ground

:15:38.:15:54.

today but it is a little more chilly than that summer stay in 2012 when

:15:55.:16:00.

the ul-Haq are we family bought the club. Back then, the owner was

:16:01.:16:07.

warmly welcomed. Now many fans on social media say they want him out

:16:08.:16:11.

and protest is planned at tomorrow's day. I think it's love affair with

:16:12.:16:18.

the club has ended. Disillusioned that is the only way to put it. It

:16:19.:16:24.

is been like that week after week. Whether to protest tomorrow, I don't

:16:25.:16:28.

know. I don't want my children to be in a bad atmosphere on Saturday.

:16:29.:16:36.

Exactly a week ago, the proposed takeover by American John J Moores

:16:37.:16:44.

collapsed. Yesterday, both he and Al Hawazi released statements. Firstly

:16:45.:16:47.

Al Hawazi affirming his commitment to the love saying he had appointed

:16:48.:16:55.

a chief financial officer. Then Mr Moores revealed he made an enhanced

:16:56.:16:59.

offer to buy the club this week. They are both blaming each other.

:17:00.:17:07.

Who knows what the truth is? And amid the chaos, confirmation today

:17:08.:17:10.

that Henry Lansbury has joined Aston Villa. Obviously, bid came in, the

:17:11.:17:18.

club agreed to accepted. We would have loved Henry to be here tomorrow

:17:19.:17:22.

and the involved, he trained well this week and trained with us and to

:17:23.:17:26.

be had stayed with us, he would have been involved cos he's a good

:17:27.:17:33.

player. He has gone now, we move on. There have been seven managers in

:17:34.:17:38.

four and a half years. Only Al Hawazi really knows who is next. I

:17:39.:17:45.

don't believe a word he says the fact that no managers want to work

:17:46.:17:49.

beneath him speaks volumes. What needs to happen is he needs to go. I

:17:50.:17:54.

wanted it to work, we all did, but I think it is time to call it an end.

:17:55.:17:59.

It is easy to forget a football game is being played tomorrow and

:18:00.:18:04.

Nottingham Forest who are 20th in the championship table need a win

:18:05.:18:08.

they could drop into the bottom three.

:18:09.:18:12.

Onto Leicester City where manager Claudio Ranieri has been reacting

:18:13.:18:15.

to reports that striker Leonardo Ulloa has handed

:18:16.:18:17.

I like Leonardo because he's a fantastic professional player and a

:18:18.:18:32.

good player. And, then, I told my impression. Now they are speaking.

:18:33.:18:37.

But I think at the end, Leonardo will stay with us.

:18:38.:18:40.

So, time is ticking in the January transfer window -

:18:41.:18:42.

everyone keen hang on to players or bolster their squad.

:18:43.:18:44.

Particularly the Rams who aim once again for promotion but the battle

:18:45.:18:48.

to get former star striker Chris Martin back on their books

:18:49.:18:50.

He is a wanted man and this is why. He has scored 63 goals in his time

:18:51.:19:09.

at Derby but found himself surplus to requirements when Nigel Pearson

:19:10.:19:14.

was in charge. When Mac came back, he was keen to get his hit man back

:19:15.:19:18.

to. There is still time for Chrissy and we want him back and we were

:19:19.:19:22.

taken aback tomorrow. Unfortunately, that is out of my hands. He holds

:19:23.:19:27.

the ball up and can player to other players. He is playing at full again

:19:28.:19:35.

but his heart can't be there. If I was Fulham, I would let him go. Your

:19:36.:19:39.

pussy was too back at Derby, so I think you need to come back. Dobbie

:19:40.:19:44.

agreed a season long loan with no release loan clause written in. But

:19:45.:19:53.

now he's back in the fold, back in the scoresheet and his current

:19:54.:19:56.

manager isn't keynoting him go. Actually, right now, he is focused

:19:57.:20:02.

on helping us, he is working well, we expect he will score many goals

:20:03.:20:08.

this season. Two weeks of the transfer window left is time running

:20:09.:20:13.

out for the Rams. We quite rightly want to keep him. He is a good

:20:14.:20:16.

player and he has proven it for Fulham. There are still two weeks to

:20:17.:20:25.

go but we have to to soldier on and Chrissy Hass to play for Fulham. It

:20:26.:20:30.

is clear Steve McClaren would love to seek Chris Martin back in

:20:31.:20:34.

Derbyshire this season but could you prove to be the one that got away?

:20:35.:20:37.

Staying with football and both our League Two teams

:20:38.:20:40.

Rugby and four Leicester Tigers players were named today

:20:41.:20:50.

in the England squad for the Six Nations.

:20:51.:20:52.

Dan Cole, Ben Youngs, Ellis Genge and the uncapped Mike Williams.

:20:53.:20:56.

Tigers are at home to Glasgow in the Champions Cup tomorrow night.

:20:57.:21:03.

Ice hockey and the Nottingham Panthers have their homecoming

:21:04.:21:05.

They're hosting Fife Flyers at the National Ice Centre

:21:06.:21:10.

It follows an historic win for the Panthers in Europe last

:21:11.:21:14.

weekend when they claimed the Continental Cup title.

:21:15.:21:22.

Snooker and Leicester's Mark Selby is out of the Masters.

:21:23.:21:24.

The World Champion was beaten by Barry Hawkins in the quarter

:21:25.:21:29.

final by 6 frames to 3 at London's Alexandra Palace.

:21:30.:21:35.

And in cricket, Nottinghamshire's opening batsman Alex Hales will fly

:21:36.:21:38.

home from England's tour of India tomorrow, after breaking his hand

:21:39.:21:42.

in yesterday's second one-day international defeat.

:21:43.:21:46.

And of course we wish him well. That is all the sports.

:21:47.:21:58.

Next - when you think about creating art, paint brushes,

:21:59.:22:00.

pencils and canvas probably spring to mind.

:22:01.:22:02.

But an artist from Leicester prefers to use smoke, fire and even

:22:03.:22:05.

Marcus Dove's pieces are already getting attention from buyers

:22:06.:22:10.

in Europe and closer to home, he's been commissioned to produce

:22:11.:22:14.

a piece commemorating Doreen Lawrence's appointment

:22:15.:22:18.

as Chancellor of De Montfort University.

:22:19.:22:20.

The man with a burning desire to take the art world by storm. This is

:22:21.:22:36.

Marcus Dove's explosive method of creating masterpieces. Using a

:22:37.:22:40.

home-made missile launch the as well as fire and smoke. Why? He told me,

No, there aren't really any fireworks in the weather but what a
