And now the news for the East Midlands.

:00:11.:00:12.

The family of a 14-year-old rape victim have been describing how

:00:13.:00:18.

the teenager's life has been shattered by the attack.

:00:19.:00:22.

Today, Kyle Parish who's now 19, was jailed for eight years.

:00:23.:00:24.

The judge said he had an unhealthy fascination

:00:25.:00:30.

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

:00:31.:00:35.

The girl, who was 14 years old at the time, was with a

:00:36.:00:43.

group of friends who were camping out and drinking in a

:00:44.:00:45.

Amongst that group was 17-year-old Kyle Parish.

:00:46.:00:50.

The court heard that, during a moment when the

:00:51.:00:53.

pair were together, Kyle Parish grabbed the girl against her will

:00:54.:00:56.

Despite repeated screams and resistance from

:00:57.:01:01.

Parish did plead guilty in September, and today, at Nottingham

:01:02.:01:09.

Crown Court, Judge Rafferty sentenced him to five years in jail

:01:10.:01:14.

and three years thereafter under supervision as part of an

:01:15.:01:17.

The young girl who is now 15 years old was in court

:01:18.:01:22.

this afternoon to hear the sentencing.

:01:23.:01:25.

I spoke to her mother afterwards, who described how

:01:26.:01:28.

devastating this has been for the family and that her daughter

:01:29.:01:31.

In this interview, the mother's identity has been disguised.

:01:32.:01:38.

It has totally destroyed it, totally.

:01:39.:01:43.

You can be having a good day, and then the

:01:44.:01:48.

littlest thing will take you back to that day.

:01:49.:01:50.

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

:01:51.:01:53.

What was your daughter like before this happened?

:01:54.:01:58.

How have things changed in terms of her personality?

:01:59.:02:03.

She just has a really low days, panic attacks.

:02:04.:02:06.

Just not to the confident child she was before this attack happened.

:02:07.:02:11.

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

:02:12.:02:15.

girls are talking about boys and things like that, how is she going

:02:16.:02:18.

What did you make of the sentencing today?

:02:19.:02:21.

They are not going to get away with it.

:02:22.:02:24.

They prey on quiet girls who they think will

:02:25.:02:26.

Just like you can get justice, and it is a long journey.

:02:27.:02:32.

In sentencing, Judge Rafferty QC said to Parish, "The devastation is

:02:33.:02:37.

not just for five minutes, five hours, five days,

:02:38.:02:41.

And he said, "You have taken away from her the one thing

:02:42.:02:47.

that matters to us all - the right to say yes or no."

:02:48.:02:56.

Next, there's mounting anger over a decision to move stroke

:02:57.:03:01.

rehabilitation services out of Nottingham City Hospital

:03:02.:03:04.

MPs and campaigners believe it's risky for patients.

:03:05.:03:10.

Rob Sissons, our health correspondent, has more.

:03:11.:03:14.

A lot of stroke rehabilitation in Nottinghamshire is done in hospital

:03:15.:03:19.

The plan now is to get more people where possible

:03:20.:03:23.

But campaigners suspect it is about cost-cutting.

:03:24.:03:30.

Ossie Newell from Nottingham is one of them.

:03:31.:03:32.

Here he is doing exercises in the kitchen

:03:33.:03:35.

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

:03:36.:03:41.

This is a cost-driven exercise, and it has got nothing to

:03:42.:03:47.

I also feel that there is a possibility that

:03:48.:03:52.

people's lives would be put at risk because of where we are going

:03:53.:03:56.

I think this has been handled very, very badly.

:03:57.:04:03.

Nottingham North MP, Labour's Graham Allen, is demanding answers.

:04:04.:04:07.

He has been collecting comments from NHS

:04:08.:04:08.

The Stroke Association is also concerned, as

:04:09.:04:24.

This will necessitate 30 stroke beds closing in Nottingham, and if you

:04:25.:04:30.

need to stay in hospital a little bit longer than normal, over seven

:04:31.:04:33.

days let's say, then you'll be put on a general ward, you will not get

:04:34.:04:39.

the exclusive and expert attention that everybody now gets on

:04:40.:04:43.

A ?1.5 million deal has been awarded to

:04:44.:04:48.

Nottinghamshire Health Care to provide rehabilitation services

:04:49.:04:51.

It says it will offer high-quality therapy that will

:04:52.:04:55.

The Nottingham Clinical Commissioning Group says

:04:56.:05:00.

the changes are about bringing county services in line with the

:05:01.:05:03.

city and making them consistently excellent.

:05:04.:05:07.

Both organisations told us no-one was available for

:05:08.:05:10.

Police have charged a man in connection with the death

:05:11.:05:15.

of a Nottinghamshire teenager last summer.

:05:16.:05:17.

14-year-old Jack Archer died after his bike collided with a car

:05:18.:05:20.

Steven Mills from Cotgrave has been charged with numerous offences,

:05:21.:05:27.

including death by careless driving, and failing to stop

:05:28.:05:30.

The 28-year-old is due in court next month.

:05:31.:05:35.

The daughter of a couple from Leicester, who were shot

:05:36.:05:38.

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

:05:39.:05:41.

preparing to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

:05:42.:05:44.

Ray and Angela Fisher were killed by an Islamist gunman in 2015.

:05:45.:05:49.

A peaceful unisian beach near the resort of

:05:50.:05:54.

Sousse, turned into the scene of violent attack in June 2015.

:05:55.:05:58.

Ray and Angela Fisher from Leicester were among them.

:05:59.:06:06.

An eyewitness saw 75-year-old Ray shot twice as he sat in a

:06:07.:06:10.

Today, their daughter, Donna Bradley, spoke at the inquest

:06:11.:06:17.

She said they were relaxing and wanted to plan

:06:18.:06:21.

In July 2015, their funeral took place at Saint Anne 's Parish

:06:22.:06:37.

50 years earlier, at the same church, this is where they

:06:38.:06:43.

The inquest in London has previously heard criticism of local

:06:44.:06:48.

law enforcement who had been accused of delaying their arrival at the

:06:49.:06:51.

A man has been charged with criminal damage,

:06:52.:07:02.

after an East Midlands ambulance was vandalised in Leicester.

:07:03.:07:05.

The vehicle's windscreen was smashed last week in the Highfields area.

:07:06.:07:09.

24-year-old Josh Thacker, who lives on Conduit Street,

:07:10.:07:12.

MPs from across the East Midlands have been reacting to the supreme

:07:13.:07:19.

This morning, some of Britain's top judges ruled that ministers were not

:07:20.:07:25.

allowed to invoke Article 50 without the approval of parliament.

:07:26.:07:29.

The move to leave the EU will now be debated ahead

:07:30.:07:32.

of a vote in Westminster, a decision that's been

:07:33.:07:35.

I don't know why the Government has been bothering to resist it, because

:07:36.:07:44.

they are going to win the Article 50 vote,

:07:45.:07:47.

so what they're trying to is minimise discussion.

:07:48.:07:49.

There are a lot of businesses and people whose jobs

:07:50.:07:52.

are in Nottingham and around the East Midlands which are

:07:53.:07:54.

That is why, in Parliament, we need to give Theresa May a nudge

:07:55.:07:59.

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

:08:00.:08:05.

A quarter of wildlife sites in Derbyshire

:08:06.:08:09.

They're defined as areas which contain a large variety

:08:10.:08:13.

of plants or animals, and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust says,

:08:14.:08:16.

if things don't change, these valuable habitats could be lost.

:08:17.:08:20.

Derbyshire has some beautiful landscapes, but now some of them

:08:21.:08:26.

25% of local wildlife sites in the county are in decline.

:08:27.:08:31.

That is a problem, because it means they are losing the plants

:08:32.:08:34.

There is a significant number of sites where

:08:35.:08:40.

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

:08:41.:08:44.

particularly the case in meadows and wetlands.

:08:45.:08:50.

Local wildlife sites sit just below areas of special

:08:51.:08:53.

scientific interest, but they don't enjoy anywhere

:08:54.:08:56.

Landowners here can do whatever they like with the

:08:57.:09:00.

site, cutting down trees or dumping rubbish, and they have no

:09:01.:09:04.

That means everything living in this field is at the mercy of the person

:09:05.:09:10.

This farmer working to maintain the land says it

:09:11.:09:16.

is not as easy as people might expect.

:09:17.:09:19.

Something like 60 different species of plant here, rushes and

:09:20.:09:23.

grasses as well as wild flowers, and obviously this land could be

:09:24.:09:26.

yielding more if it had more fertiliser and more muck applied.

:09:27.:09:29.

It might not be an easy problem to solve, but

:09:30.:09:34.

farmers and local wildlife experts hope they can do enough to protect

:09:35.:09:37.

So, it's goodbye from me - but with your weather

:09:38.:09:47.

Much, much milder, further north and west. Let's concentrate on that fog.

:11:32.:11:37.

I think it is going to be a problem again
