And now the news for the East Midlands,

:00:12.:00:13.

A man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the sexual abuse

:00:14.:00:19.

Matthew Salmon was found guilty of nine child sex offences,

:00:20.:00:24.

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

:00:25.:00:30.

The lesson persuaded her to come forward and ended

:00:31.:00:34.

It was in a classroom just like this one where a girl finally

:00:35.:00:43.

plucked up the courage to tell her teachers

:00:44.:00:46.

about the sexual abuse she'd been suffering.

:00:47.:00:49.

This week, the NSPCC's visiting schoolchildren here

:00:50.:00:51.

in Nottingham, but it was three years ago in Sandiacre

:00:52.:00:54.

in Derbyshire where concerns were raised

:00:55.:00:56.

The following investigation led to the sentencing

:00:57.:01:00.

of this man, 29-year-old Matthew Salmon from St Ann's in

:01:01.:01:04.

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

:01:05.:01:09.

licence, for nine sexual offences against a child.

:01:10.:01:13.

It's been the most horrific catalogue of sexual abuse

:01:14.:01:16.

that I've ever had to investigate on a child.

:01:17.:01:19.

Hopefully this will go some way to giving a little

:01:20.:01:21.

bit of closure for the family, and help them move on and

:01:22.:01:24.

Today the court heard how Matthew Salmon carried out multiple

:01:25.:01:32.

sexual assaults, from kissing to the repeated rape of a girl,

:01:33.:01:35.

The abuse started when she was just eight years old.

:01:36.:01:39.

Judge Dickinson QC said she'd suffered the full spectrum of sexual

:01:40.:01:42.

abuse and that, given her age, she clearly couldn't

:01:43.:01:46.

have understood how serious it was.

:01:47.:01:50.

The NSPCC team which helped to uncover this abuse says

:01:51.:01:53.

cases like this highlight the need to raise awareness.

:01:54.:01:58.

Sometimes people who are abused don't actually

:01:59.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:04.

But they need to understand it's wrong.

:02:05.:02:08.

Our parents support it because they recognise and

:02:09.:02:10.

appreciate that it is important that all children can speak out if they

:02:11.:02:13.

And they want their children to feel like they cando that.

:02:14.:02:21.

And they want their children to feel like they can do that.

:02:22.:02:24.

Now, because they've told it to us, we can spread it to other

:02:25.:02:27.

children if they're having worries and then they can know what to do.

:02:28.:02:30.

Not many people knew about ChildLine.

:02:31.:02:32.

But now they're coming to different schools

:02:33.:02:36.

then a lot more children are knowing.

:02:37.:02:37.

If we get worries and it's getting too big for

:02:38.:02:40.

us to handle, then we can always turn to someone.

:02:41.:02:42.

Today has been a bittersweet moment for the team, who

:02:43.:02:45.

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

:02:46.:02:48.

Tonight police have named a woman whose body was found

:02:49.:02:58.

Officers were called to Cromer Street yesterday morning

:02:59.:03:03.

after the suitcase was found by a member of the public.

:03:04.:03:07.

Tonight a 50-year-old man's been charged with her murder.

:03:08.:03:09.

In a quiet residential street in the Stoneygate area of Leicester,

:03:10.:03:16.

police continued their investigation today on Cromer Street and

:03:17.:03:20.

on two nearby roads, searching under cars, on the

:03:21.:03:23.

pathway and in doorways, for evidence about what happened in the

:03:24.:03:27.

Tonight Leicestershire police confirmed the

:03:28.:03:32.

woman found is 46-year-old Kiran Daudia.

:03:33.:03:35.

In a statement, her family said she was

:03:36.:03:37.

a much-loved mum, daughter, sister and auntie,

:03:38.:03:41.

People nearby say they're shocked by what's happened.

:03:42.:03:48.

Because normally, when I go in the evening

:03:49.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:03:55.

takeaways on Evington Road so we go freely, and now we're scared.

:03:56.:03:58.

And I don't know what has happened there but

:03:59.:04:02.

it's worrying everybody on the street.

:04:03.:04:04.

Since yesterday we make sure we havestarted locking doors

:04:05.:04:07.

Since yesterday we make sure we have started locking doors

:04:08.:04:10.

The alleyway, we check it out, and of course the front doors,

:04:11.:04:14.

just before we go to bed, make double sure that

:04:15.:04:17.

Obviously, it's worrying because you don't want anything like

:04:18.:04:21.

in wide police confirm a 50-year-old man has been charged with her

:04:22.:04:32.

murder. He will appear before magistrates tomorrow.

:04:33.:04:38.

The family of the former Leicester MP Greville Janner has met

:04:39.:04:41.

the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse,

:04:42.:04:42.

to ask if they can take part in its investigation.

:04:43.:04:45.

His son and two daughters had previously refused to be involved.

:04:46.:04:47.

They felt the inquiry was wrong to take on the case since he's died

:04:48.:04:51.

They deny all allegations against him.

:04:52.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:04:58.

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

:04:59.:05:03.

to the Royal Derby Hospital but died of his injuries.

:05:04.:05:05.

The Health and Safety Executive has been informed.

:05:06.:05:08.

Derby City Council, which owns the building,

:05:09.:05:10.

says the hall will not re-open tomorrow.

:05:11.:05:15.

Unions claim hundreds of jobs are at risk at a Derbyshire

:05:16.:05:19.

warehouse which distributes pharmaceuticals and beauty products.

:05:20.:05:22.

Usdaw says up to 300 jobs could go at Alliance Healthcare

:05:23.:05:25.

Meanwhile, hundreds more jobs are under threat at a

:05:26.:05:29.

It comes as the latest unemployment figures show the number of people

:05:30.:05:34.

out of work in the East Midlands fell by 1,000 between September

:05:35.:05:38.

The Alliance Healthcare distribution centre in South

:05:39.:05:44.

Normanton is part of the wider Walgreens Boots Alliance business,

:05:45.:05:48.

We've been told by Usdaw, the shop workers' union,

:05:49.:05:54.

that the firm's told them that up to 300 jobs could

:05:55.:05:57.

It's one of the company's biggest distribution

:05:58.:06:00.

warehouses, sending pharmaceuticals and beauty products

:06:01.:06:03.

Some staff have worked at the site for decades.

:06:04.:06:08.

It could be that we still get a job here, or we could end up

:06:09.:06:14.

at Nottingham. Who's to know?

:06:15.:06:16.

18 years. 21.

:06:17.:06:21.

And Paul... 17.

:06:22.:06:23.

There's a lot of people thats been here a long time as well.

:06:24.:06:26.

Alliance Healthcare say they need to make improvements

:06:27.:06:28.

They're making changes, mainly in South Normanton and

:06:29.:06:32.

They want to keep the impact on jobs as small as

:06:33.:06:36.

possible but, until staff consultation has finished, they

:06:37.:06:38.

The firm says the loss of a major contract,

:06:39.:06:46.

after a client chose to go elsewhere, is the reason they're

:06:47.:06:49.

having to look at reducing the workforce of 781 employees.

:06:50.:06:51.

Meanwhile, in Nottingham, union leaders met bosses from The Pizza

:06:52.:06:54.

Factory, where hundreds of workers are facing redundancy.

:06:55.:06:58.

The Two Sisters Group says it's due to the

:06:59.:07:00.

The Unite union claims 280 jobs are at risk.

:07:01.:07:10.

New figures show that one in every 14 people in the East Midlands

:07:11.:07:13.

The condition can lead to major health complications and costs

:07:14.:07:19.

But it can be prevented through changes to diet and lifestyle.

:07:20.:07:25.

Now mobile diabetes units are touring various locations

:07:26.:07:29.

around the region, to offer advice and tests.

:07:30.:07:32.

Anyone found to have a high risk of type two diabetes is referred

:07:33.:07:36.

Children from across Derbyshire have been taking part in a campaign

:07:37.:07:42.

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

:07:43.:07:48.

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

:07:49.:07:52.

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

:07:53.:07:59.

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

:08:00.:08:06.

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

:08:07.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:12.

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

:08:13.:08:16.

across the world living in modern slavery.

:08:17.:08:20.

It's a difficult and challenging subject to talk

:08:21.:08:23.

So how do you begin explaining it to children?

:08:24.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:30.

And most admitted they don't because, to be a person,

:08:31.:08:34.

you have your own ideas, you negotiate with your

:08:35.:08:37.

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

:08:38.:08:41.

or how to spend their time, or the resources to

:08:42.:08:44.

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

:08:45.:08:49.

Several schools from across Derbyshire are taking

:08:50.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:09:00.

teach their schoolmates about it too.

:09:01.:09:02.

Modern slavery is a bad thing because they don't

:09:03.:09:05.

It really inspired me to tell people that modern slavery

:09:06.:09:10.

is still going around the UK and other places.

:09:11.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:18.

That's your news from the East Midlands, so it's goodbye from me.

:09:19.:09:29.

But with your weather now, here's Kaye.

:09:30.:09:39.

Thank you it has been a pleasure. I wish I was ending my forecast with

:09:40.:09:45.

gorgeous clear blue shut skies and plenty of sunshine but alas we've

:09:46.:09:52.

hit the nail on the head with this photograph. Grey, overcast skies

:09:53.:09:57.

with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and that is sadly how it will stay

:09:58.:10:02.

into tomorrow. A lot of cloud about. It is staying quite mild. The bigger

:10:03.:10:07.

picture, still high pressure in charge. Feeding in, all that cloud

:10:08.:10:14.

and bits of drizzle two. Further south there is a hard frost but it

:10:15.:10:19.

won't get that cold until the weekend. Overnight to night will

:10:20.:10:23.

remain cloudy, misty, murky. Outbreaks of rain and drizzle as

:10:24.:10:27.

well. Winds remain light and temperatures will not get much lower

:10:28.:10:31.

than four or 5 degrees. There won't be a frost tomorrow morning. But it

:10:32.:10:36.

will be cloudy, grey, overcast. The winds will remain light on the

:10:37.:10:41.

temperatures are not doing too badly. But I'm afraid not so much in

:10:42.:10:48.

the way of sunshine. That is how it is set to stay Friday as well. By

:10:49.:10:53.

Friday will get temperatures starting to drop off. Around about

:10:54.:10:57.

six to Greece. Then into the weekend will get the risk of overnight frost

:10:58.:11:01.

with things turning much colder. That's it

:11:02.:11:02.

next few days, no great changes over the next few days, more sunshine on

:11:03.:11:04.

the way. Despite high-pressure sitting across

:11:05.:11:16.

the country so only slow changes in the weather, we have had a variety

:11:17.:11:20.

of different weathers, for example this beautiful sunset in Southampton

:11:21.:11:26.

which was shared by a Weather Watcher, but grey and misty in Derby

:11:27.:11:30.

thanks to an awful lot of cloud around and very little deviation by

:11:31.:11:34.

day or night from the rather grey routine.

:11:35.:11:37.

That is because we have a weather front, albeit very weak and very

:11:38.:11:41.

little wind to move the cloud and the mist on. Those areas furthest

:11:42.:11:44.

from the weather

:11:45.:11:46.
