Here on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:12.

And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Anne Davies.

:00:13.:00:18.

There's political outrage tonight over the fact the Red Cross had

:00:19.:00:21.

to be called in to help the region's emergency services cope

:00:22.:00:24.

The Shadow Health Secretary's called it a badge of shame.

:00:25.:00:31.

Our Health Correspondent Rob Sissons has more.

:00:32.:00:33.

Well, here at Nottingham's accident and emergency unit they saw a record

:00:34.:00:36.

number of patients in the department in the space of one hour

:00:37.:00:41.

UNISON have been talking to their members in the department,

:00:42.:00:48.

who told them what things were like over Christmas

:00:49.:00:50.

I went down to the A department today with the branch secretary

:00:51.:00:56.

and we spoke to a number of nurses and health care assistants

:00:57.:01:01.

and we asked how did they find working over the Christmas

:01:02.:01:05.

and New Year period and they said it was horrific.

:01:06.:01:08.

The resus department cater for nine beds,

:01:09.:01:11.

there was up to 20 people wanting the nine beds.

:01:12.:01:16.

The Ambulance Service called in the British Red Cross to support

:01:17.:01:19.

them as they saw a huge increase in calls over New Year.

:01:20.:01:22.

The Red Cross were supporting ambulance crews and patients,

:01:23.:01:25.

giving them refreshments, they also responded to a small

:01:26.:01:28.

number of emergencies and took some patients home.

:01:29.:01:35.

But the Shadow Health Secretary says things should never

:01:36.:01:37.

The Red Cross has always provided support for elderly people

:01:38.:01:40.

in the community and that is a good thing, we commend them for that,

:01:41.:01:44.

but actually having to be helping out on the front line,

:01:45.:01:46.

supporting the Ambulance Service, I think many people will be shocked

:01:47.:01:49.

and it's a badge of shame for the Government that our NHS

:01:50.:01:52.

is on the brink of crisis or is facing a crisis now.

:01:53.:01:56.

For the Government, the Health Secretary has said

:01:57.:01:58.

that there are problems but he doesn't recognise

:01:59.:02:00.

the description from the British Red Cross

:02:01.:02:02.

of what they call a humanitarian crisis in the health service.

:02:03.:02:07.

The truth is that there are some very severe problems

:02:08.:02:10.

and we are doing everything we can to sort them out.

:02:11.:02:12.

This is the most challenging time of year for the NHS but in the vast

:02:13.:02:16.

majority of cases people watching this programme can be confident

:02:17.:02:18.

that their services are managing to cope despite extreme pressure.

:02:19.:02:24.

And with so much of winter left, there is no early end in sight

:02:25.:02:27.

Residents of a Derbyshire village say they're completely in the dark

:02:28.:02:37.

about the future of some homes if a connecting line to HS2

:02:38.:02:40.

The "spur" line would connect HS2 to Sheffield, 22 miles to the north.

:02:41.:02:45.

Residents fear brand-new homes in the village could end

:02:46.:02:49.

up being demolished, as James Roberson reports.

:02:50.:02:54.

In Newton, Tony Mellors tells me what campaigners believe a spur-off

:02:55.:02:57.

HS2 through Derbyshire would do to their community.

:02:58.:03:02.

It will mean eight houses coming down on this side and seven

:03:03.:03:08.

on the other side as the rail goes straight through.

:03:09.:03:13.

It was last year that residents suddenly found out that a spur-line

:03:14.:03:17.

off the main HS2 route would take high-speed trains through

:03:18.:03:19.

the western edge of their village, right along the edge of a brand-new

:03:20.:03:22.

On the estate, houses are still being built but there's

:03:23.:03:29.

complete uncertainty about some homes' future.

:03:30.:03:31.

Marie knew nothing about the HS2 spur line when she bought

:03:32.:03:34.

It's a big worry and nobody really knows where the stand.

:03:35.:03:40.

I speak to my neighbours and nobody knows what is happening.

:03:41.:03:43.

We we went to the meetings, we have been to two meetings

:03:44.:03:45.

and they just keep saying that there will be compensation.

:03:46.:03:48.

But it has taken a long time for us to save up to buy

:03:49.:03:52.

Residents say Sheffield and Chesterfield will get high-speed

:03:53.:03:57.

trains via this spur line but at the cost of Newton,

:03:58.:04:00.

where some property prices are down 30%, and its environs.

:04:01.:04:03.

The houses that you see being constructed are in

:04:04.:04:07.

The effect is even wider in that during the HS2 construction three

:04:08.:04:15.

out of the four roads in and out of the village will be closed

:04:16.:04:26.

and in a little wider area than we are looking at ten

:04:27.:04:29.

And trail closures, the leisure trails that we have,

:04:30.:04:32.

that we enjoy in this area, will just disappear along

:04:33.:04:35.

HS2 themselves say they work with local communities to understand

:04:36.:04:38.

They want people to attend the forthcoming community

:04:39.:04:41.

information events in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire

:04:42.:04:42.

in January and February and to take part in public consultations before

:04:43.:04:46.

Newton residents are holding a public meeting

:04:47.:04:57.

A Leicester saleswoman has admitted two counts of fraud involving

:04:58.:05:01.

Barbara Stone was caught following an investigation

:05:02.:05:04.

led by East Midlands regional Scambuster Team.

:05:05.:05:09.

The 62-year-old from Leicester worked for Aspire Magazine,

:05:10.:05:11.

Stone was a cold-caller who fraudulently sold thousands

:05:12.:05:15.

of pounds of advertising to a couple in their 80s who wanted to rent

:05:16.:05:19.

And she also duped a dog rescue charity based in Shropshire.

:05:20.:05:26.

She'll be sentenced next month and has been warned to expect

:05:27.:05:28.

Security camera footage of burglars has been released after an air

:05:29.:05:35.

ambulance charity shop in Leicester has been targeted

:05:36.:05:37.

It's understood the same gang could be responsible for the spate

:05:38.:05:43.

It's the fourth time the shop in Wigston has been targeted

:05:44.:05:48.

This time they fled empty-handed when a new alarm system went off.

:05:49.:05:56.

A man from Derby crawled with a broken leg for more than two

:05:57.:05:59.

hours after falling from rocks on the Dorset coast.

:06:00.:06:02.

Tim Robinson slipped whilst walking on the Jurassic Coast,

:06:03.:06:04.

After crawling for three-quarters of a mile he was found

:06:05.:06:11.

He was taken by lifeboat to a waiting ambulance.

:06:12.:06:14.

A new report warns that one in three young people in the East Midlands

:06:15.:06:22.

don't feel in control of their lives.

:06:23.:06:23.

More than one in ten think they will amount to nothing,

:06:24.:06:26.

The rather gloomy findings come from the Prince's Trust annual Youth

:06:27.:06:30.

Here on the Saffron Lane Estate these teenagers are on their way

:06:31.:06:40.

to a drop-in clinic to get some careers advice.

:06:41.:06:43.

It's held here every day for young people.

:06:44.:06:46.

The estate has high levels of deprivation and unemployment

:06:47.:06:49.

is high, leaving many feeling unsure about their future.

:06:50.:06:53.

But these teenagers say they are taking control of their lives.

:06:54.:06:57.

I know what I want to do, I've got that positivity in my mind

:06:58.:07:01.

of pushing myself towards it but they don't, so they just need

:07:02.:07:05.

to get their own game plan and push themselves towards it.

:07:06.:07:09.

And I know you need to work hard for stuff.

:07:10.:07:15.

Other people just want everybody else to do their stuff for them.

:07:16.:07:18.

I know that people don't do that for you.

:07:19.:07:21.

He says a lot of the young people he sees can't shake off

:07:22.:07:28.

the reputation of living on the Saffron Lane Estate.

:07:29.:07:31.

I had an instance where a young person told me that they felt that

:07:32.:07:35.

when they had a job interview if they said they were from

:07:36.:07:37.

the Saffron Lane Estate, then that would immediately be

:07:38.:07:39.

The report doesn't make very good reading for this region.

:07:40.:07:44.

Almost a third of young people say they don't feel

:07:45.:07:48.

Many say they feel trapped by their circumstances,

:07:49.:07:53.

with more than one in ten saying they don't believe they can change

:07:54.:07:57.

The research also reveals that 17% of young people think their life

:07:58.:08:01.

will amount to nothing no matter how hard they try.

:08:02.:08:05.

For those of young people that are not in work and whose prospects

:08:06.:08:08.

are not that good at the moment as they see it, this

:08:09.:08:11.

is a slightly worrying trend that there is still a lot of work

:08:12.:08:14.

to be done to get these people into jobs.

:08:15.:08:16.

For many young people, life may seem bleak right now

:08:17.:08:19.

but these teenagers say they are determined they will

:08:20.:08:21.

More than 200 youngsters from schools in Leicester

:08:22.:08:29.

and Leicestershire are taking part in a project merging

:08:30.:08:31.

music with sport to encourage more boys to sing.

:08:32.:08:47.

It's part of a project between the Leicestershire Music Education Hub

:08:48.:08:51.

The boys will be performing at De Montfort Hall in June

:08:52.:08:55.

and are hoping to form a Leicester City choir

:08:56.:08:57.

Football - and what a great draw for the East Midlands.

:08:58.:09:01.

Derby County will play Leicester in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

:09:02.:09:04.

The tie will be played during the last weekend of January.

:09:05.:09:06.

Apt, too, on the day former Foxes striker David Nugent

:09:07.:09:09.

That's your news, so it's goodbye from me -

:09:10.:09:12.

but with your weather now, here's Kaye.

:09:13.:09:17.

take a look at the weather Friday week.

:09:18.:09:25.

Things are quite mild to delete. The winter will willing to the day by

:09:26.:09:31.

day. It will also get a load called by the end of the week. For the

:09:32.:09:41.

first half of the week, it will remain relatively mild. Many will

:09:42.:09:47.

stay dry authority nights tonight. Temperatures down to about 4

:09:48.:09:55.

degrees. 39 in Fahrenheit. The best of the sunshine will be through the

:09:56.:10:01.

morning and further east. Closed will increase through the afternoon.

:10:02.:10:11.

The winds are strengthening as well. The middle part of the week into

:10:12.:10:17.

Wynnstay is where the cold front will come through. We will not

:10:18.:10:22.

notice the cold air until Thursday. As we head into night, the cloud

:10:23.:10:31.

increasing. Computers on the mild side and a stay miles for a good

:10:32.:10:38.

deal of the day. Clarity in the ear and styles of sunshine. Say goodbye

:10:39.:10:47.

to the cold air and thermals overnight into Thursday.

:10:48.:10:52.

Temperatures through the day around 4 degrees but it will feel colder.

:10:53.:10:59.

Any showers are likely to be wintry. Similar conditions for Friday. The

:11:00.:11:01.

breeze will ease precipitation we get will be of a

:11:02.:11:06.

wintry nation and Thursday is one we have to watch out for. The weekend

:11:07.:11:10.

outlook, it stays chilly with a northerly wind and possibly frosty

:11:11.:11:13.

nights. The national weather forecast now.

:11:14.:11:21.

Wet and windy weather across the western side of Scotland.

:11:22.:11:26.

Blood-pressure is in charge of the weather, lots of isobars and it

:11:27.:11:30.

remains windy overnight across northern and western parts of

:11:31.:11:34.

Scotland. It will blow a gale here. That is the north-west quadrant of

:11:35.:11:38.

the UK, that is where we expect most of the overnight rain. Within
