And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:11.:00:14.

The funeral was held today for Claire Nagle -

:00:15.:00:16.

the Derbyshire mother of five at the centre of a murder

:00:17.:00:19.

Her parents, speaking to our reporter Navtej Johal,

:00:20.:00:23.

say they're unable to come to terms with her death.

:00:24.:00:32.

I didn't know they were there and there was her and her daughter.

:00:33.:00:35.

And I just couldn't believe that they were there, you know!

:00:36.:00:39.

A surprise birthday party for her mum.

:00:40.:00:44.

The mother of five was studying to become the mental health nurse.

:00:45.:00:50.

Last month, she was found at her home in Borrowash by police

:00:51.:00:53.

with serious injuries and later died in hospital.

:00:54.:00:58.

Police have linked Claire's death to that of her husband Vincent,

:00:59.:01:01.

who died after colliding with a lorry on the M1

:01:02.:01:03.

All the way up, all we could see were signs saying that the M1

:01:04.:01:11.

was shut, and we knew why, and it was like torture all the way.

:01:12.:01:16.

Things like this only happened on the news.

:01:17.:01:19.

You would never in a million years, you know, think it

:01:20.:01:23.

An inquest into Claire's death will resume later this year.

:01:24.:01:35.

Her parents, who have come from their home in Wales

:01:36.:01:39.

for Claire's funeral today, hope she will be remembered

:01:40.:01:42.

for the woman she was, rather than the circumstances

:01:43.:01:44.

The hardest thing I will miss is when she was in her car,

:01:45.:01:48.

she would put her phone on the loudspeaker and the kids

:01:49.:01:51.

Claire's 22-year-old son who was reportedly attacked

:01:52.:02:04.

with a nail gun on the day she died is now out of hospital.

:02:05.:02:08.

Her parents also told Claire's two youngest

:02:09.:02:11.

children about what happened to their mum and dad.

:02:12.:02:15.

It was the hardest thing to prepare for and when it came down

:02:16.:02:18.

to it, I don't think they really understood anyway.

:02:19.:02:24.

NHS England has confirmed two of our hospital trusts

:02:25.:02:37.

were on the highest state of alert last week as the winter strain

:02:38.:02:40.

Both United Lincolnshire Hospitals and the Leicester Hospitals

:02:41.:02:44.

It's the highest level of alert, meaning there's increased potential

:02:45.:02:50.

for patient CARE and SAFETY to be compromised.

:02:51.:02:52.

The strain has continued this week, with Nottingham's hospitals saying

:02:53.:02:55.

a shortage of community beds is a problem.

:02:56.:02:58.

A teenager's been jailed for murdering another

:02:59.:02:59.

Richard Bernard was stabbed on the doorstep of his

:03:00.:03:05.

flat at Trocadero Court in Normanton in May.

:03:06.:03:07.

Mohammed Ibrahim - who's 19 and of no fixed address -

:03:08.:03:12.

will serve at least 18 years behind bars, after being sentenced

:03:13.:03:15.

As Donald Trump was sworn in today as president of the United States,

:03:16.:03:23.

there were small demonstrations across parts of the East Midlands.

:03:24.:03:25.

Protest banners were unfurled earlier in Derbyshire,

:03:26.:03:28.

while this evening there were small rallies in Leicester

:03:29.:03:30.

and Nottingham's Old Market Square - organised by the group "Stand

:03:31.:03:33.

They told our Political Editor Tony Rowe their aim is to show solidarity

:03:34.:03:39.

with those Americans who don't want him as their president.

:03:40.:03:45.

If you want to show bigotry, you have to put up with opposition. He

:03:46.:03:57.

says he wanted to heal divisions. Are you heartened by that? He also

:03:58.:04:03.

said we need to take back our jobs and protect our borders in America,

:04:04.:04:08.

it is all about foreigners as aliens.

:04:09.:04:10.

East Midlands Today understands Nottingham is seriously

:04:11.:04:12.

considering a bid to be European Capital of Culture.

:04:13.:04:14.

The last UK city to hold the title was Liverpool nine years ago -

:04:15.:04:17.

and it'll be Britain's turn again in 2023.

:04:18.:04:19.

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

:04:20.:04:44.

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

:04:45.:04:49.

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

:04:50.:04:52.

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

:04:53.:05:01.

A few weeks ago, huge celebrations in Hull which picked Lester

:05:02.:05:04.

The European accolade is an altogether good deal.

:05:05.:05:08.

Last held in Britain by Liverpool in 2008.

:05:09.:05:12.

It is really known as the point in time when Liverpool

:05:13.:05:15.

We have carried on the legacy. We have huge international tourism.

:05:16.:05:26.

Hotels are being built every day. New confidence.

:05:27.:05:30.

Nottingham has a lot going for it, not least the contemporary art

:05:31.:05:33.

gallery, it will face fierce competition from Leeds,

:05:34.:05:35.

And other major cities are expect to follow them.

:05:36.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:45.

I can't see what difference it will make.

:05:46.:05:59.

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

:06:00.:06:03.

Everyone can learn a bit more and get together,

:06:04.:06:06.

The weekend's upon and Alex is here - how's the weather looking

:06:07.:06:29.

for the next few days, Alex.

:06:30.:06:33.

It is looking chilly as we go through the course of the weekend.

:06:34.:06:40.

If we look at the charts, we can see we have high pressure broadly in

:06:41.:06:45.

charge and that sticks with us for the next few days. Expect a variable

:06:46.:06:50.

amounts of cloud and also wrap up warm. Looking at night, we do have a

:06:51.:06:57.

widespread frost expected tonight, loads of minus two Celsius and some

:06:58.:07:04.

mist and fog patches. Those patches of mist and fog may take a while to

:07:05.:07:09.

clear, a bright but chilly start to the day and from mid-morning through

:07:10.:07:14.

the afternoon, cloud works in from the east. Highs of four or five

:07:15.:07:20.

Celsius. A similar picture on Sunday, lots of cloud around but

:07:21.:07:24.

brighter spells. Still bother chilly. -- still quite chilly.

:07:25.:07:29.

feel cooler. Can we keep it going until the start of the new week? I

:07:30.:07:36.

suspect we can. Unconfirmed about -- concerned about the fog around. Here

:07:37.:07:37.

is Helen with the national picture. Good evening. The weather is upon

:07:38.:07:46.

us. The cloud
