A couple describe their terrifying earthquake ordeal.

:00:00.:00:13.

Their house in Italy was buried in snow and then the tremors hit. Our

:00:14.:00:24.

family pet got killed. Animals got killed. Also tonight, more NHS

:00:25.:00:33.

services are offered at home and paste into question whether they

:00:34.:00:38.

will get the same pain treatment. You need qualified staff. How can

:00:39.:00:41.

you set up a mini theatre in the home. Plus, the battle for this

:00:42.:00:51.

beauty spot. Could it chest to mean the end of views like this. And we

:00:52.:00:57.

are going to go back in time to find out about the buildings of

:00:58.:00:58.

Leicester's past. Good evening and welcome to Friday's

:00:59.:01:03.

programme with Anne Davies First tonight, a couple from Derby

:01:04.:01:06.

say they've lost everything after their home in Italy

:01:07.:01:12.

was buried snow. Peter Fletcher and his partner Clair

:01:13.:01:17.

passed a terrifying few days in the recent heavy snowfalls

:01:18.:01:19.

and earthquakes that convulsed They were living close to the hotel

:01:20.:01:21.

that was buried in an avalanche Trapped for four days as the snow

:01:22.:01:41.

slowly buried their home, Claire and Peter were meant to be starting a

:01:42.:01:45.

new life when they move to Italy, but as the weather got worst their

:01:46.:01:52.

dream house became president, then the earthquake struck. We were

:01:53.:01:56.

petrified, that is probably an understatement. You have got no

:01:57.:02:01.

choice you have to go, you cannot stop. When it is chest height and

:02:02.:02:06.

falling to the snow you can't do it. If we got stuck on the drive no one

:02:07.:02:10.

would have known we were there. If we had made to the road no one would

:02:11.:02:14.

have known we were there. What you do when you're in that situation,

:02:15.:02:20.

where whatever way you tend that could be it? The couple and their

:02:21.:02:25.

13-year-old son were caught in the extreme weather that has devastated

:02:26.:02:28.

the region. A few miles away from their village rescuers have been

:02:29.:02:34.

pulling bodies out as the F quick cause an avalanche. -- as the

:02:35.:02:41.

earthquake caused an avalanche. They know they are lucky to be alive.

:02:42.:02:47.

There were four inches of water in the bedroom coming from somewhere.

:02:48.:02:51.

That was the night before we left the house. Then, we walked up the

:02:52.:02:55.

drive and we saw that the chimney had fallen into the house. The

:02:56.:03:00.

earthquake 's, the water that came from the melted snow. When they came

:03:01.:03:04.

to rescue us from the house they didn't come on the drive. They

:03:05.:03:08.

couldn't get down the drive. We literally had to make our way to the

:03:09.:03:14.

top of the drive. How did you do it? We crawled. Hands and need. We

:03:15.:03:20.

crawled. -- hands and knees. The family put their life savings into

:03:21.:03:26.

the move and I'm not holding out much hope after a traumatic

:03:27.:03:31.

experience. Our family pet got killed, we had animals that got

:03:32.:03:40.

killed. Everything we own is in that house in Italy, we came away in what

:03:41.:03:45.

we were standing up in. Now the family is living with relatives that

:03:46.:03:49.

they try to work out their next move, but they say after the events

:03:50.:03:53.

of the last few weeks they are reluctant to go back. We thought we

:03:54.:03:58.

had bought a piece of paradise and at that particular moment when the

:03:59.:04:01.

earthquake was shaking the house and renewed couldn't get out, that was

:04:02.:04:03.

our worst nightmare. A woman's been found guilty

:04:04.:04:05.

of the manslaughter of her seven Chaunfang Zheng had been accused

:04:06.:04:09.

of violently shaking She died in hospital

:04:10.:04:12.

three days later. Our reporter Giles Taylor

:04:13.:04:15.

can tell us more. Well, the trial at Leicester's

:04:16.:04:25.

Crown Court followed a two year investigation

:04:26.:04:29.

by Leicestershire Police - to determine just what

:04:30.:04:30.

happened to Phoebe. It all took place on

:04:31.:04:32.

the 22nd of March 2015, at a flat on Linden

:04:33.:04:35.

Drive in Lutterworth. 31-year-old Chaunfang Zheng

:04:36.:04:40.

was babysitting 4 children, The baby fell unconscious, and died

:04:41.:04:42.

in hospital three days later. Leicester Crown Court was told

:04:43.:04:48.

the baby had suffered a catastrophic and fatal brain injury,

:04:49.:04:51.

which could only have been But Zheng denied harming

:04:52.:04:53.

the baby, saying she treated her like her own child,

:04:54.:04:56.

and even tried to resuscitate her. The jury wasn't convinced,

:04:57.:05:02.

and following almost a week of deliberations this morning

:05:03.:05:04.

they unanimously found Today the NSPCC has described

:05:05.:05:06.

the incident as a horrific attack on a defenceless child by someone

:05:07.:05:14.

trusted to look after her. Zheng has been remanded

:05:15.:05:18.

in custody, and will be back in court next month

:05:19.:05:20.

when the judge has warned she is likely to face a long

:05:21.:05:23.

custodial sentence. If you love football, I think you

:05:24.:05:37.

will love this. There's a fantastic FA Cup tie

:05:38.:05:41.

coming up, and Colin's It has a little bit of everything.

:05:42.:05:53.

It is an all East Midlands clash. It is at night, under the lights and

:05:54.:05:58.

there is a chance of an upset. We will build up to it in full, later

:05:59.:06:00.

on. Patients in Nottingham say

:06:01.:06:04.

they're worried about plans to close their specialist pain

:06:05.:06:09.

clinic, under proposals to move more NHS services

:06:10.:06:10.

into the community. Is it about better care or saving

:06:11.:06:17.

cash? it's no secret they need

:06:18.:06:19.

to save money and several hospital-based services

:06:20.:06:23.

are being reviewed. But some pain sufferers fear a worse

:06:24.:06:25.

service if those changes happen. Our Health Correspondent

:06:26.:06:30.

Rob Sissons has more. This woman suffers chronic pain

:06:31.:06:47.

after a road accident. She fears the move will wreck a brilliant service.

:06:48.:06:53.

They aren't my lifeline, I'm sincere in this, I would become a permanent

:06:54.:07:03.

will check user. She fears something special will be lost. We still don't

:07:04.:07:10.

know what causes it. This team has got the skills comic years of

:07:11.:07:16.

experience... Tablets don't really torch Caroline's upper back pain but

:07:17.:07:22.

she says group sessions at Nottingham City Hospital helps and

:07:23.:07:27.

is worried about the service changing, as well. I think we are in

:07:28.:07:31.

danger of knowing the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

:07:32.:07:38.

Having honed this specialist programme, I don't see how any other

:07:39.:07:44.

organisation could deliver it with the same ability and cost

:07:45.:07:47.

effectiveness and with the trained professionals that are in the NHS.

:07:48.:07:50.

The NHS managers who hold those particular purse strings insist

:07:51.:07:52.

they can move the pain management service to places like GP

:07:53.:07:55.

surgeries without affecting the standard of care.

:07:56.:08:02.

The man known as the clinical lead at the clinical commissioning group

:08:03.:08:08.

told us the hospital was raising the cost of services like the pain

:08:09.:08:15.

clinic and it could not be afforded any more. I can't hide from the fact

:08:16.:08:20.

that price is part of this, it is important that we are aware we are

:08:21.:08:24.

working in a financially challenging environment. There is not enough

:08:25.:08:28.

money for us to carry on spending at the rate we're spending. You said

:08:29.:08:32.

the service might be cheaper, but how can it be better if that is so?

:08:33.:08:37.

The service could be better in lots of different ways, when we took

:08:38.:08:43.

about value, I include patient experience and the outcomes that

:08:44.:08:48.

patients can get a minute that patients' experiences better when

:08:49.:08:55.

these things are delivered in the community. Patients we have spoken

:08:56.:09:01.

to the it will be a worse service. I can understand that fear and I

:09:02.:09:06.

strongly believe that we can improve the service. We are expecting the

:09:07.:09:12.

same level of staff, consultants, and therapists to be involved. The

:09:13.:09:16.

main difference will be the geography about where it will be

:09:17.:09:17.

provided. A former clergyman who was the first

:09:18.:09:20.

in the Church of England to marry his same-sex partner

:09:21.:09:23.

is to lead a campaign of protest of protest to change church

:09:24.:09:26.

doctrine on marriage. Today, the Church of England

:09:27.:09:28.

published a report that underlined its concept of marriage

:09:29.:09:30.

as the union of one man and one Canon Jeremy Pemberton fought a long

:09:31.:09:35.

legal battle against the Church when he was refused a licence

:09:36.:09:42.

to practice as a hospital chaplain. A new report but not on newsstands,

:09:43.:09:53.

bishops say that marriage in the church should be between a man or

:09:54.:09:58.

woman. It is a conclusion that this man says is disappointing. There is

:09:59.:10:02.

a lovely bears in the Bible that says "God is love and those that

:10:03.:10:11.

live in love..." I think that is true for gay people as well as

:10:12.:10:15.

straight people. The report also suggests that anyone wanting to join

:10:16.:10:19.

the clergy whether straight or gay will be asked about their sexual

:10:20.:10:23.

conduct. This has been a controversial subject for the church

:10:24.:10:29.

was some this report represents two years worth of the ports on the

:10:30.:10:34.

subjects of human sexuality. Whether teaching when change it cause for a

:10:35.:10:39.

fresh tone and a culture of welcome and support for gay and lesbian

:10:40.:10:44.

people. The trouble is, they are still saying that they think of

:10:45.:10:48.

relationships are sinful and wrong and that we are second-class

:10:49.:10:58.

citizens. Our test is to uphold the gospel and the Scriptures and

:10:59.:11:01.

tradition as we have received it, but also to make certain that this

:11:02.:11:07.

is a church in which all lesbian and gay people who are made in the image

:11:08.:11:12.

and likeness of God like everyone else has a welcome place. I would be

:11:13.:11:18.

in favour of same-sex marriage honoured by the church, because as

:11:19.:11:23.

far as I'm concerned love is love. They should have their own Church if

:11:24.:11:29.

they want to change anything. I can't fault them for not wanting to

:11:30.:11:35.

change a tradition. In the past he has been refused to work as a

:11:36.:11:45.

hospital chaplain, he now works as a civil servant and chairs charity

:11:46.:11:49.

campaigning for a more inclusive Church. With the lesbian and Gay

:11:50.:11:54.

Christian movement he plans to campaign for change. I want to see

:11:55.:12:01.

the theology change, we had a theology 25 years ago that said that

:12:02.:12:04.

divorced people couldn't be remarried in the church and we

:12:05.:12:11.

changed it, you can do it. The report will be debated next month.

:12:12.:12:17.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the killing

:12:18.:12:19.

Aqib Mazhar was stabbed to death on Russell Road

:12:20.:12:23.

A 19-year-old is in custody, and is being held in

:12:24.:12:27.

Four men have already been sentenced for the manslaughter of Mr Mazhar.

:12:28.:12:34.

A Leicester MP is calling for European prisoners to be

:12:35.:12:36.

returned to their countries as soon as possible, before

:12:37.:12:39.

Labour's Keith Vaz was speaking at a debate

:12:40.:12:45.

in Westminster about how Brexit would affect law enforcement.

:12:46.:12:47.

He says there are more than 4,000 from the EU

:12:48.:12:49.

currently being held here, costing ?169 million a year.

:12:50.:12:55.

A Leicester man's been jailed for more than six and a half years

:12:56.:12:58.

for stealing a taxi at gunpoint, after threatening children

:12:59.:13:01.

32-year-old James Blockley used the fake gun last August

:13:02.:13:09.

to intimidate motorists on Groby Road - one of whom had

:13:10.:13:11.

He then robbed a taxi driver and stole his vehicle

:13:12.:13:15.

People living close to a popular beauty spot say it'll be ruined

:13:16.:13:30.

if a viaduct for HS2 is allowed to run through it.

:13:31.:13:33.

They've been expressing their concerns

:13:34.:13:34.

about the plans at a consultation event today.

:13:35.:13:36.

Campaigners say it will destroy the views around

:13:37.:13:38.

Stanton Gate in Derbyshire - and harm local wildlife.

:13:39.:13:40.

It is a view which has now been under threat. A proposed new 16

:13:41.:13:49.

metre high viaduct to be built as part of the HS to route will go

:13:50.:13:55.

through this green belt land. Campaigners say it will obstruct the

:13:56.:14:01.

view of this beauty spot and disrupt local wildlife I have travelled a

:14:02.:14:04.

lot round the world and I think these are some of the most beautiful

:14:05.:14:08.

views I have ever seen and I would hate them to be lost. This woman is

:14:09.:14:16.

leading the campaign against the plans. She is calling for it to be

:14:17.:14:21.

built on the other side of the canal, making used of the existing

:14:22.:14:28.

railway line. There is lost of existing track 's and we want to see

:14:29.:14:31.

that they can get in there. If it does end up being built on this land

:14:32.:14:36.

around us how you feel? I will be very disappointed. I think we will

:14:37.:14:42.

lose something you cannot replace. At this consultation event there was

:14:43.:14:47.

concern from other residents. Local people go there to enjoy the

:14:48.:14:52.

environment and it is destroying it. We believe that the current route is

:14:53.:14:57.

the right balance in terms of the impact on people and the

:14:58.:15:02.

environment. Is there any hope that the viaduct could be changed? We are

:15:03.:15:06.

not expecting at this stage to move it. We will always, as we go

:15:07.:15:13.

forward, seek to improve the design, if we can, but we don't expect at

:15:14.:15:17.

this stage to remove it because we think we have struck the right

:15:18.:15:23.

balance. I know that event will take place in Nuneaton will stop.

:15:24.:15:33.

Now, Vanished Leicester is an archive of more

:15:34.:15:35.

than a thousand photographs documenting the demolished

:15:36.:15:36.

All the photos have been taken by a man who is now 91. Along with the

:15:37.:15:49.

University of Leicester he is asking people to share their memories of

:15:50.:15:51.

place is gone, but not forgotten. When walking through the centre of

:15:52.:15:59.

Leicester most of us probably don't play much attention to the buildings

:16:00.:16:05.

around us. But, a photographic archive shows is what it was like.

:16:06.:16:10.

Why where many of the buildings knocked down during those decades?

:16:11.:16:18.

The Victorian housing where poor quality and were demolished in slum

:16:19.:16:22.

clearances. In the city centre it was to make way for, what we see

:16:23.:16:27.

behind us today, this shopping centre. The project, available on

:16:28.:16:38.

the University of Leicester website is called vanish Leicester. This

:16:39.:16:49.

hotel had been a landmark. This was controversial. It was an old

:16:50.:16:55.

coaching inn, used by generations of Leicester people and the writer Sue

:16:56.:16:59.

Townsend was livid when it came down, as were other people. We're

:17:00.:17:04.

hoping the photos of that will attract attention and some memories.

:17:05.:17:08.

This former architect took all of the photographs in the archive. He

:17:09.:17:14.

drew up in the west end area where his father had an off-licence shop.

:17:15.:17:23.

The beer came in drawn by horses. And they put at, I the pavement, and

:17:24.:17:30.

pushed the bowels off so they dropped on the mat. It struck me

:17:31.:17:34.

that somebody ought to record it record it. It wasn't of great

:17:35.:17:39.

interest then, they went interest in 19th-century stuff, but I was. I had

:17:40.:17:46.

developed an interest in it so I started. This treasure trove of

:17:47.:17:50.

architectural history will now be preserved ever. The University of

:17:51.:17:53.

Leicester would like people he knew the old buildings to add their

:17:54.:18:01.

memories to the archive. Some wonderful old memories of Leicester.

:18:02.:18:05.

They can all be found on the University of Leicester's website.

:18:06.:18:06.

Have a look. Time for sport now -

:18:07.:18:10.

and it's a big all East Midlands Yes - Colin's at Pride Park

:18:11.:18:13.

for the clash between Derby County Good evening. You can see your

:18:14.:18:21.

breath here and you can feel the buzz around the place because it is

:18:22.:18:27.

those two teams. The match of the Day live hammers are in place but a

:18:28.:18:34.

genuine local derby. -- match of the Day live cameras. It has a little

:18:35.:18:38.

bit of everything, the struggling champions of England come to the

:18:39.:18:44.

local rivals. It will have spice, passion and it is yet more evidence

:18:45.:18:48.

that the FA Cup is the heart of football. It's all about playing in

:18:49.:18:56.

FA Cup tie it doesn't get much bigger than this. You top in this

:18:57.:19:05.

competition? Yes, under percent. We must win tomorrow, that is it. Make

:19:06.:19:14.

it a special night. Pan on the floodlights, put it on BBC One after

:19:15.:19:19.

all a trophy with more history in it than ever. We love the FA Cup. They

:19:20.:19:25.

will be bringing 5000, the atmosphere will be brilliant. It is

:19:26.:19:30.

the FA Cup which is always special. Everybody wants to win it. It is

:19:31.:19:35.

everybody's dream. It doesn't matter where you come from in the world,

:19:36.:19:39.

you know it and you probably treasure it. We know our fans and

:19:40.:19:46.

the Derby fans expect a very good match tomorrow and we are ready.

:19:47.:19:52.

Players who have been well round the block find that the cup games bring

:19:53.:19:57.

out something extra in them, sporting brilliance. I always loved

:19:58.:20:05.

watching the FA Cup on the TV. For whatever reason why, I always to do

:20:06.:20:10.

well and it. It would be nice to be a court run all concerned. If we got

:20:11.:20:15.

a good draw it would be good for the team and the chance to green fans or

:20:16.:20:20.

those, find their selves making home debuts. It is the local derby, it is

:20:21.:20:30.

massive for the fans and the club to beat your local rivals, especially

:20:31.:20:34.

in the FA Cup which is such a prestigious tournament. Like the

:20:35.:20:40.

lights, fire up the cameras, this is what the club is all about. -- the

:20:41.:20:44.

cup is all about. More on the cup tie

:20:45.:20:50.

in a moment but we are here at Derby County of course -

:20:51.:20:53.

managed just a few years ago The big question tonight could he be

:20:54.:20:56.

the next Nottingham Forest boss? Forest have made an approach

:20:57.:21:04.

to his current club Clough today has spoken with

:21:05.:21:06.

the Burton chairman about it all - So how do the fans feel

:21:07.:21:11.

about the prospect of Clough coming I couldn't think of anybody better

:21:12.:21:20.

to come back. The club is in turmoil, it needs somebody that has

:21:21.:21:27.

got some ties with the club to come and do his stuff. If he is at

:21:28.:21:35.

quarter as successful as 's father was, he will do well. I am not too

:21:36.:21:40.

sure, but I will obviously give him a chance. I'm not a big fan of his,

:21:41.:21:46.

put it that way. As simple as that. COMMENTATOR: A brilliant save. I

:21:47.:21:52.

think it will put the owner in favour with the fans. I would like

:21:53.:21:57.

to think he would like to come. It would be hard for him to train

:21:58.:22:02.

emulators dad, but who knows. We need somebody. -- to try and emulate

:22:03.:22:09.

his dad. I am not happy, I'm not a big fan of Nigel, a all. You have to

:22:10.:22:14.

give them a chance, he has a big history with the club. I thought the

:22:15.:22:22.

world of his dad. Hopefully he would come and think about what his dad

:22:23.:22:26.

did. There might be too much of an expectation on because of his

:22:27.:22:32.

father. It is a cuddle grandad once. It will put a lot of pressure on

:22:33.:22:37.

him, but we do need a manager. We don't seem to be going anywhere. I

:22:38.:22:42.

think it could only be good for the club, really. There is league

:22:43.:22:46.

football this weekend, as well. The Magpies - against Crawley - find

:22:47.:22:49.

themselves in the relegation zone. The Stags, home to Leyton Orient

:22:50.:22:54.

are pushing for the play offs. In Rugby, Leicester Tigers Welford

could be a highlight of the season. Over 120 appearences for Derby,

season and they were targeting this competition thinking, if we don't

top game in the Champions League. But, if I was a Leicester player I

the performance in the last round was fantastic. They want to pitch

tonight? My heart is on both sides. But, my head says, I have a sneaky

feeling the Derby tonight. The atmosphere here, the defensive

record under Steve McClaren, I think Derby might nick it. My heart, is

ethics cup is still special, you can keep up with it it is likely this

evening. -- the FA Cup. BBC radio Derby and Leicester also both have

:25:57.:26:02.

It will be a very different start to the day tomorrow compared to what we

:26:03.:26:08.

experience the best thing this morning. Captured nicely by our

:26:09.:26:13.

weather watches... One of the Fountains throws in Derby. It was

:26:14.:26:20.

that cold last night. It will be a wet night, we have this band of rain

:26:21.:26:27.

working its way in. It is still very cold outside, over high ground it

might the sleet. My other air is coming in all the time so will

:26:34.:26:39.

revert back to rain. Misty and murky conditions linked as well. The

:26:40.:26:46.

minimum temperature is around two Celsius. The rain band is still

:26:47.:26:49.

present first thing tomorrow morning. It will slowly start to

:26:50.:26:54.

clear and we will hold onto quite a bit of clout in the afternoon.

:26:55.:26:58.

Maybe, Leicestershire and Derbyshire will see some brightness. Still the

:26:59.:27:04.

chance of some heavy showers which could contain thunder. The daytime,

:27:05.:27:09.

quite a contrast to yesterday, and maximum per Saturday at seven

:27:10.:27:17.

Celsius. Clearest spells on Saturday. On Sunday, more rain

:27:18.:27:22.

coming in from the south. It could move its position, but at the moment

:27:23.:27:27.

it shows it is coming to the east Midlands. And maximum temperature of

seven Celsius. Monday, low pressure. I'm out weaker but wet and windy at

times. Thank you, we would like to point

out that there is no bias towards Leicester. Note if the weather

buyers even know it was very blue. We know you understand the risks

associated with your pregnancy. Because I'm smaller, people think

:27:54.:27:55.

my hopes are not so great. You know what it's like when

:27:56.:27:58.

help is needed. You just jump in. Are you saying that

he's stalking you now?
