It's almost 6:30pm, you're watching East Midlands Today.

:00:00.:00:00.

Tonight, fears that changes to Nottinghamshire's stroke services

We petitioners being moved into patients homes. This is a cost

driven exercise nothing to do with care at all. The mother of a

14-year-old rape victim tells us her daughter's life has been shattered.

:00:32.:00:36.

It has totally destroyed it. Totally. You've got no trust in

:00:37.:00:42.

anyone. A quarter of our local wildlife sites in Derbyshire are in

:00:43.:00:46.

decline. We speak to the farmers wildlife experts about how they are

:00:47.:00:50.

making a change. The Leicestershire chef creating pop

:00:51.:00:54.

up restaurants in some of the world's most challenging locations.

:00:55.:01:06.

Welcome to Tuesday's programme with Dominic Heale

:01:07.:01:08.

First tonight, there's mounting anger over changes to stroke

:01:09.:01:13.

services in Nottinghamshire which campaigners warn

:01:14.:01:16.

More rehabilitation is being moved out of hospital

:01:17.:01:22.

The NHS insists it'll improve care but one leading stroke campaigner

:01:23.:01:28.

has told this programme he believes the shake-up could

:01:29.:01:30.

Our Health Correspondent Rob Sissons has more.

:01:31.:01:39.

Well, a lot stroke rehabilitation in Nottinghamshire is done

:01:40.:01:42.

in-hospital at the moment, the plan now is to get more people

:01:43.:01:44.

where possible recovering at home with support.

:01:45.:01:47.

But campaigners suspect it is about cost cutting.

:01:48.:01:50.

Ossie Newell in Nottingham is one of them.

:01:51.:01:54.

Here he is doing exercises in the kitchen where he had

:01:55.:01:56.

He says care at home won't be as good as the current

:01:57.:02:02.

This is a cost driven exercise, and it's got nothing

:02:03.:02:07.

And I also feel it is a possibility that people's lives will be put

:02:08.:02:14.

at risk because of where were going in this.

:02:15.:02:19.

I think this has been handled very, very badly.

:02:20.:02:25.

The Nottingham North MP, Labour's Graham Allen,

:02:26.:02:27.

He's has been collecting comments from NHS clinicians

:02:28.:02:32.

The Stroke Association is also concerned as well

:02:33.:02:45.

That will necessitate 30 stroke beds closing in Nottingham.

:02:46.:02:53.

And if you need to stay in hospital a little

:02:54.:02:56.

bit longer than normal, over seven days, let's say, then

:02:57.:02:58.

You will not get the exclusive and expert attention that everybody

:02:59.:03:04.

now gets on the stroke units in Nottingham.

:03:05.:03:08.

We understand people make good recoveries when they're able to be

:03:09.:03:10.

around friends and family, and able to have the same

:03:11.:03:13.

level of rehabilitation that they were able to in hospital.

:03:14.:03:15.

However, the problem is that stroke survivors often tell us they feel

:03:16.:03:20.

abandoned when they leave home because they're not getting access

:03:21.:03:22.

to the right level of therapy to help them make

:03:23.:03:24.

And that's why we want to see more details of the plans, to make sure

:03:25.:03:29.

everyone in Nottingham is able, any stroke survivor

:03:30.:03:31.

in Nottingham is able to make the best possible recovery.

:03:32.:03:35.

It could be too late a ?1.5 million deal has been awarded

:03:36.:03:38.

to Nottinghamshire health care to provide the rehabilitation

:03:39.:03:41.

It says will offer high quality therapy that will maximise

:03:42.:03:47.

Nottingham Clinical Commissioning Group says the changes

:03:48.:03:53.

are about brining county services in line with the city and making

:03:54.:03:57.

Both organisations said no one was available for interview.

:03:58.:04:08.

A man has been jailed after raping a 14-year-old girl in Nottingham.

:04:09.:04:12.

Kyle Parish was given an extended sentence of 8 years,

:04:13.:04:16.

the judge said he had an unhealthy fascination with

:04:17.:04:19.

The victim's family say it has left them devastated.

:04:20.:04:24.

Geeta Pendse was at Nottingham Crown Court.

:04:25.:04:27.

The court heard that the rape took place in the early hours

:04:28.:04:35.

The girl, who was 14 at the time, was with a group of friends

:04:36.:04:48.

who were camping out and drinking in a field near their homes.

:04:49.:04:51.

Amongst the group was 17 year old Kyle Parish.

:04:52.:04:53.

The court heard, during a moment when the pair were alone,

:04:54.:04:56.

Kyle grabbed the girl against her will and

:04:57.:04:58.

Despite repeated screams and resistance from the girl,

:04:59.:05:02.

In September 2016, Parish pleaded guilty to rape.

:05:03.:05:11.

Today, at Nottingham Crown Court, Judge Rafferty sentenced him to five

:05:12.:05:14.

years in jail and three years thereafter under supervision.

:05:15.:05:21.

Well, the 14-year-old victim was in court to hear the sentencing.

:05:22.:05:25.

In an interview, her mother told me how Parish had

:05:26.:05:27.

destroyed their family life and her daughter at attempted

:05:28.:05:32.

Her voice and identity have been disguised.

:05:33.:05:40.

You can be having a good day, and then the littlest thing

:05:41.:05:48.

When you hear those words come out of your child's mouth,

:05:49.:05:53.

What was your daughter like before this happened?

:05:54.:05:58.

And how have things changed, in terms of her personality?

:05:59.:06:04.

She just has really low days, panic attacks, just not confident

:06:05.:06:08.

child she was before this attack happened.

:06:09.:06:13.

You just know for the rest of her life when other girls

:06:14.:06:16.

are talking about boys and other things like that, how's

:06:17.:06:18.

What did you make of the sentencing today?

:06:19.:06:22.

They're not going to get away with it.

:06:23.:06:24.

They prey on quiet girls that they think will be scared.

:06:25.:06:28.

Just that you can get justice, and it's a long journey.

:06:29.:06:37.

In sentencing, Judge Rafferty QC said to Parish,

:06:38.:06:42.

the devastation is not just for five minutes,

:06:43.:06:44.

"You have taken away from her the one thing

:06:45.:06:50.

The daughter of a couple from Leicester, who were shot

:06:51.:07:02.

in a terrorist attack in Tunisia, has told an inquest they were

:07:03.:07:05.

preparing to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

:07:06.:07:08.

Ray and Angela Fisher were among 38 people killed

:07:09.:07:11.

They were shot by an Islamist gunman.

:07:12.:07:16.

Today their daughter Donna Bradley spoke at the inquest

:07:17.:07:18.

in London which is looking into the British deaths.

:07:19.:07:21.

She said they'd wanted to relax and plan the wedding anniversary.

:07:22.:07:28.

A Malaysian airline has denied any connection with the corruption

:07:29.:07:40.

allegations surrounding Derby-based engine maker, Rolls-Royce.

:07:41.:07:45.

Last week, the company was ordered to pay out a record

:07:46.:07:47.

?670 million over five years, following allegations

:07:48.:07:51.

they paid millions of dollars in bribes to win contracts.

:07:52.:07:55.

The Malaysian based airline, AirAsia, says

:07:56.:07:57.

Rolls-Royce today had its credit rating downgraded from A-minus

:07:58.:08:03.

to triple-B-plus by the agency S, because of the size

:08:04.:08:06.

The Leicestershire family raising funds for research into Duchenne

:08:07.:08:16.

Alex's parents have pledged to fund 1 million pounds for research. We

:08:17.:08:32.

find out why it's a race against time. High five.

:08:33.:08:37.

Next reaction here to that Supreme Court ruling on Brexit.

:08:38.:08:40.

Its verdict is that Parliament must agree to invoke Article 50,

:08:41.:08:43.

which sets the clock running on leaving the EU.

:08:44.:08:47.

Conservative MPs Anna Soubry and Ken Clarke both welcome

:08:48.:08:51.

They now want Parliament to debate the type of Brexit we end up with.

:08:52.:08:56.

Meanwhile business leaders in the East Midlands

:08:57.:08:59.

Here's our political editor Tony Roe.

:09:00.:09:05.

When the decision came from the Supreme Court,

:09:06.:09:07.

Quick to react in the TV studios was Ken Clarke,

:09:08.:09:11.

whose Rushcliffe constituency was one of only two areas

:09:12.:09:13.

in the East Midlands to vote to remain in the EU referendum.

:09:14.:09:18.

Well, it does restore Parliamentary democracy.

:09:19.:09:20.

I think it is wholly predictable, and I don't know why

:09:21.:09:23.

the government's been bothering to resist it because they going

:09:24.:09:26.

What they're trying to do is minimise the discussion.

:09:27.:09:32.

Mr Clarke will vote against article 50 when they vote now comes.

:09:33.:09:35.

Perhaps the only Tory to take that route.

:09:36.:09:38.

The next row on the horizon is over MPs getting a chance

:09:39.:09:41.

to debate the issues, which will be negotiated over,

:09:42.:09:43.

leaving the single market, leaving the customs union,

:09:44.:09:47.

and ending free movement of EU workers.

:09:48.:09:49.

I think we should debate these things.

:09:50.:09:51.

Parliament should be debating these things on behalf

:09:52.:09:58.

That's what we need to do now, and have that vote on article 50,

:09:59.:10:06.

which we will now have by way of legislation.

:10:07.:10:08.

Whatever politicians decide or even have a say

:10:09.:10:10.

Uncertainty is bad the trade, so any clarity is welcome.

:10:11.:10:15.

I was talking to businesses only this morning in Derby,

:10:16.:10:18.

talking about the different potential scenarios

:10:19.:10:20.

The good news is they are in a strong position, so we've got

:10:21.:10:25.

However, delay after delay when it comes to really setting out the kind

:10:26.:10:29.

of deal that we are going to get from Brexit, or we want

:10:30.:10:32.

The government is to bring a bill to the Commons this week.

:10:33.:10:38.

Some Labour MPs are pushing to amend it at committee stage

:10:39.:10:41.

to try to prevent a so-called hard Brexit.

:10:42.:10:45.

There's a lot of businesses and people whose jobs

:10:46.:10:47.

are in Nottingham and around the East Midlands are

:10:48.:10:49.

Which is why, in Parliament, we need to give Theresa May and nudge,

:10:50.:10:54.

in a very friendly way, just to make sure she gets back

:10:55.:10:57.

onto the right path, and towards a way of salvaging

:10:58.:11:02.

access and participation in the single market, for example.

:11:03.:11:06.

Those MPs who have always wanted to leave the EU,

:11:07.:11:08.

like Andrew Bridgen, say they're disappointed,

:11:09.:11:10.

but not surprised by the Supreme Court decision.

:11:11.:11:12.

They expect a quick bill through parliament which will set

:11:13.:11:15.

off a two-year countdown clock on our membership of

:11:16.:11:17.

For one family from Leicestershire, life really is a race against time.

:11:18.:11:31.

Alex Hallam, who's ten and from Rothley, has an aggressive

:11:32.:11:34.

So his parents have pledged to raise ?1 million through the charity

:11:35.:11:37.

Alex's Wish, to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

:11:38.:11:45.

Victoria Hicks has been to meet the family.

:11:46.:11:51.

Welcome to my primary school. This is my year six class, with doing

:11:52.:11:58.

maths which is my favourite lesson. Happy and popular boy like any of

:11:59.:12:03.

his classmates. There's one problem Alex can't solve. He has Duchenne

:12:04.:12:06.

muscular dystrophy, a genetic disorder which is gradually robbing

:12:07.:12:10.

his muscles of their strength. It's annoying because I can't run very

:12:11.:12:17.

fast. I run very slow. And, then, I can't really carry as much stuff

:12:18.:12:21.

because I'm not as strong. It's just more difficult. Alex is going to

:12:22.:12:27.

help me explain a little bit about Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It is a

:12:28.:12:31.

condition which mainly affects boys. Each year, there are 100 new cases.

:12:32.:12:38.

Like Alex, most children tend to be diagnosed before the age of five. As

:12:39.:12:44.

the condition takes hold, the more things Alex won't be able to do that

:12:45.:12:48.

he has been able to do before so it's almost like little deaths.

:12:49.:12:53.

Little deaths that you won't be able to use your legs, then to use your

:12:54.:12:59.

arms. So it is a nonstop constant decline. Alex's parents have set up

:13:00.:13:05.

a charity called Alex's Wish to raise ?1 million to fund research

:13:06.:13:09.

into finding a possible cure. Alex has also been the face of a national

:13:10.:13:14.

advertising campaign to raise awareness about Duchenne muscular

:13:15.:13:18.

dystrophy. Alex knows most boys like him don't live past their 20s. But

:13:19.:13:26.

it is living with that that makes Alex anything but week. Alex is a

:13:27.:13:32.

determined little boy. His parents are also determined he gets to enjoy

:13:33.:13:37.

life as much and for as long as he can. Emily is from the charity

:13:38.:13:50.

working with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. How many children are

:13:51.:13:55.

affected? To families are weak are given the diagnosis their son has

:13:56.:13:59.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Worldwide, we estimate the known

:14:00.:14:04.

number of cases 300,000 so although it is classed as a red disease, it

:14:05.:14:08.

is the most common genetic killer of children. I know this affects your

:14:09.:14:14.

family as well but to families a week sounds high to me. Are you

:14:15.:14:18.

close to finding a treatment? The scientist that have been working

:14:19.:14:26.

with ten to -- Duchenne have struggled but we have had some

:14:27.:14:30.

advances and honey to fund early stage clinical trials so we can

:14:31.:14:34.

prove the breakthroughs made in the laboratory will actually work on

:14:35.:14:38.

patients. Two years ago we put ?2 million into a gene therapy

:14:39.:14:41.

programme with an American biotech company and they're planning to go

:14:42.:14:44.

into the clinic this year to test the drug on boys with Duchenne. If

:14:45.:14:48.

it happens under the drug works, that could signal a major turning

:14:49.:14:53.

point in this disease. How much difference will be ?1 million that

:14:54.:14:56.

Alex's family hope to raise make to the charity? Alex's family are a

:14:57.:15:02.

huge support to us and it'll make a huge impact on paying for the

:15:03.:15:06.

doctors and nurses who will be able to deliver these vitally needed

:15:07.:15:09.

clinical trials for boys with Duchenne and give them a chance at

:15:10.:15:13.

life. Emily, we wish you and your son or the very. Thank you.

:15:14.:15:17.

Now, most of us will probably be prepared to travel a little distance

:15:18.:15:20.

to a good restaurant, or spend time searching for one

:15:21.:15:22.

But one Leicestershire chef has now made it HIS mission

:15:23.:15:27.

to deliver HIS menu to people all over the world!

:15:28.:15:32.

James Sharman from Broughton Astley and his team of cooks are creating

:15:33.:15:36.

pop up restaurants in 20 countries over 20 months.

:15:37.:15:38.

And they're not always in the easiest of locations,

:15:39.:15:41.

The fact that we don't know what Nepalese cuisine

:15:42.:15:46.

is is enough of a reason to go there in the first place.

:15:47.:15:50.

We start with, like, ten fermented things, five pickles,

:15:51.:15:53.

a few different base ideas for our menu.

:15:54.:15:57.

If you think of Nepalese food that you know, and then imagine trying

:15:58.:16:00.

to put all that Nepalese into jars, and hike with it for a couple of

:16:01.:16:03.

Well, earlier today, James popped up here in our studio.

:16:04.:16:13.

And we asked him what sparked this unusual culinary idea.

:16:14.:16:17.

I guess we kind of wanted a sense of freedom, like,

:16:18.:16:20.

we've all trained in a lot of different restaurants

:16:21.:16:22.

in our careers, and we've taken everything we love about them,

:16:23.:16:24.

so that sense of personality and honesty, and real kind

:16:25.:16:28.

of informal setting, and we've put it into houses

:16:29.:16:31.

and apartments and mountains and wherever it may be,

:16:32.:16:34.

we found a way to build a restaurant almost anywhere.

:16:35.:16:37.

The thing is you mentioned does well is it's all

:16:38.:16:40.

And the atmosphere as well more than the venue,

:16:41.:16:46.

With us, we kind of travel along, like we might be driving

:16:47.:16:53.

through Vietnam, and you might offer a case of beer to a fishing crew,

:16:54.:16:56.

a 30 man fishing crew, that will take you out to see,

:16:57.:16:59.

and you'll be able to go fishing for a night off

:17:00.:17:02.

the coast of Vietnam, and see what they do, and how

:17:03.:17:05.

And you might get on that boat expecting to discover loads

:17:06.:17:09.

of new types of fish but, really, we what you do at 3am

:17:10.:17:12.

is you get shuffled into a little cabin and everybody eats rice,

:17:13.:17:15.

boiled fish, and the fish sauce that their wife makes at home.

:17:16.:17:18.

And that is a really poignant food experience.

:17:19.:17:21.

What about the practicalities, though?

:17:22.:17:24.

You can't just parachute into a country and set up a restaurant.

:17:25.:17:26.

What about the utensils and the ovens and the

:17:27.:17:29.

We will literally arrive in a country and be, like, OK,

:17:30.:17:35.

we've got three weeks to get this together, doors open in 20 days.

:17:36.:17:40.

So, you pretty much break everything down and you just approach every

:17:41.:17:42.

problem like you'd approach designing a dish or cooking

:17:43.:17:45.

That kind of chef mentality pulls us through a lot of problems.

:17:46.:17:50.

Kevin, one of the guys on our team, he will build all the furniture,

:17:51.:17:53.

He will meet all the people that we need to and just make

:17:54.:17:57.

You make a huge amount of friends all over the world.

:17:58.:18:02.

I suppose this is something you can just keep on doing because there's

:18:03.:18:05.

always somewhere different until you're 110.

:18:06.:18:06.

It's almost like the commitment-phobe of

:18:07.:18:10.

The stuff we've seen is absolutely brilliant,

:18:11.:18:14.

He was lovely and I think we should do a programme visiting his

:18:15.:18:30.

restaurants all over the world! Food is a universal language. A bit

:18:31.:18:33.

like sport. I would like to be on that

:18:34.:18:35.

programme, thank you! First we start in the Premier League

:18:36.:18:37.

where Leicester City have confirmed defender Luis Hernandez has

:18:38.:18:40.

left the club. He's been in England just seven

:18:41.:18:41.

months and made just eight appearances for the Foxes and joins

:18:42.:18:44.

La Liga side Malaga. At Nottingham Forest,

:18:45.:18:46.

interim manager Gary Brazil says they need to win back the trust

:18:47.:18:49.

of the fans. Brazil took charge last week

:18:50.:18:52.

and steered the team He says, despite the instability

:18:53.:18:54.

at the club, the players have showed character and determination and he's

:18:55.:18:59.

promising supporters more of the same for

:19:00.:19:04.

tomorrow's game at Leeds. They've got to know that

:19:05.:19:07.

when they get in the car to travel up to Leeds tonight,

:19:08.:19:11.

they're going to get Now, they will get

:19:12.:19:13.

that tomorrow night. That's what I'm talking

:19:14.:19:15.

about, the trust. The trust has got to be there

:19:16.:19:17.

between the fans and the players. We fully understand the importance

:19:18.:19:20.

of the fans at this football club. I can't guarantee we will win every

:19:21.:19:23.

week, but there's certain things that are unconditional

:19:24.:19:26.

that we will provide, we will do Notts County have revealed

:19:27.:19:28.

they sacked former manager John Sheridan for gross misconduct,

:19:29.:19:32.

after a rant in which he swore 11 times and threatened to knock

:19:33.:19:36.

out a fourth official. Notts chairman Alan Hardy says

:19:37.:19:41.

Sheridan's comments during a defeat by Wycombe back in December

:19:42.:19:44.

were utterly appalling and he decided to terminate his

:19:45.:19:47.

contract on the basis Sheridan who is now manager

:19:48.:19:50.

at League One Oldham has since apologised

:19:51.:19:56.

in Derbyshire are at risk They're defined as areas

which contain a large variety of plants or animals and that also

something needs to change or these valuable habitats will be lost,

:23:31.:23:33.

along with the flora Derbyshire has some beautiful

:23:34.:23:35.

landscapes but now some 25% of local wildlife sites

:23:36.:23:45.

in the county are in decline. That's a problem because it means

they are losing the plants There's a significant number

of sites where the management isn't as good as it needs to be in order

to maintain the interest. And this is particularly the case

:24:00.:24:03.

in meadows and wetlands. Around about 200 local wildlife

:24:04.:24:09.

sites are actually declining. Local wildlife sites sits just below

they like with the site, cutting And they have no

field is at the mercy This is parish owned land,

:24:30.:24:32.

and it's all run by volunteers. So what we've done here

:24:33.:24:37.

is plant 2,000 trees, dug this enrmous wetland,

and just generally improved this Over in Kirk Langley,

Godfrey Mendel is another farmer But he says it's not as simple

as people might expect. It's obviously not looking it's best

:24:51.:24:56.

at the moment - it's died. But this has a lovely purple flower

:24:57.:25:02.

and flowers quite late. And this has got to be looked

after through the grazing regime. But the grazing regime takes time

:25:06.:25:08.

to come and check the cattle, and, obviously, this land could be

:25:09.:25:11.

yielding more if it had fertiliser So, it might not be an easy problem

:25:12.:25:14.

to solve, but farmers and local wildlife experts hope they can do

:25:15.:25:22.

enough to protect it for the future. How's that for the weather picture?

:25:23.:25:41.

It was beautiful. I tried to get with a picture, beautiful son,

:25:42.:25:46.

rising mist, it didn't work! We have had some beautiful sunset

:25:47.:25:49.

pictures sent in today. More of those in a second. In the meantime,

:25:50.:25:58.

we have a yellow wall -- yellow warning the fog and ice as well so

:25:59.:26:02.

take extra care if you're out and about because visibility is likely

:26:03.:26:05.

to be poor in places with tricky driving conditions as well and some

:26:06.:26:09.

slippery conditions on untreated roots. This was the view in

:26:10.:26:13.

Derbyshire this evening. Thank you very much to our weather watchers

:26:14.:26:18.

for sending fees. This is Nottinghamshire, beautiful skies.

:26:19.:26:22.

Tomorrow morning, less of the sunshine, more frost and fog, quite

:26:23.:26:25.

overcast for much of the day tomorrow as well. This is the

:26:26.:26:30.

pressure child. We have high pressure we are clinging on to for

:26:31.:26:35.

the next day or so. Towards the end of the week, we expect those isobars

:26:36.:26:38.

to come together and we will see some breezy conditions. Tonight, we

:26:39.:26:42.

start off on a cloudy note, then over the course of the early hours,

:26:43.:26:47.

the fog builds in from the south of the region with loads of 0 Celsius.

:26:48.:26:54.

In rural areas, we are expecting a frost. Through the morning, the fog

:26:55.:26:59.

comes up from the South before slowly starting to clear and

:27:00.:27:02.

break-up but we are still expecting quite an overcast day tomorrow,

:27:03.:27:05.

perhaps just a little bit of sunshine over the Peak District with

:27:06.:27:10.

highs of five Celsius. Then, as we look ahead to Thursday, on the one

:27:11.:27:14.

hand, more of the same with variable amounts of cloud but it will feel

:27:15.:27:20.

bitterly cold with highs of just one Celsius and some breezy conditions

:27:21.:27:24.

as well. I'll leave you with the outlook but, whatever you're doing

:27:25.:27:28.

over the next few days, wrap up warm because it's going to be chilly.

:27:29.:27:34.

Whatever you're doing, don't do it! Don't do it in one Celsius, you'll

:27:35.:27:38.

be very uncomfortable. Alex and I will be back with your late news at

:27:39.:27:42.

around 10:25pm. We will be watching! Goodbye.

Very often, the line between fact and fiction

In this series, I'm exploring how three turning points in our history

have been manipulated to become our greatest historical legends.
