And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Quentin Rayner.

:00:11.:00:13.

A couple caught up in the devastating earthquakes

:00:14.:00:16.

and avalanches which have hit Italy say they've lost everything

:00:17.:00:20.

after moving from Derby to start a new life.

:00:21.:00:23.

It should have been a fresh start for Peter Fletcher and his partner,

:00:24.:00:26.

Clair, but instead they've fled their Alpine home and returned

:00:27.:00:29.

Trapped for four days as the snow slowly buried their home,

:00:30.:00:38.

Clair and Peter were meant to be starting a new life

:00:39.:00:41.

when they move to Italy but, as the weather got worse,

:00:42.:00:44.

We were petrified, that is probably an understatement.

:00:45.:00:56.

You've got no choice - you've to go, you can't stop.

:00:57.:00:59.

When it's chest high and falling through the snow, you can't do it.

:01:00.:01:04.

If we make it to the road, no one will know we're there.

:01:05.:01:11.

What you do when you're in that situation where,

:01:12.:01:13.

whatever way you turn, that could be it?

:01:14.:01:19.

The bad weather in the region has caused devastation.

:01:20.:01:22.

At a nearby hotel, rescuers have been pulling bodies out

:01:23.:01:25.

after the earthquake caused an avalanche.

:01:26.:01:28.

Clair and Peter were only rescued after they managed to get

:01:29.:01:30.

They know they are lucky to be alive.

:01:31.:01:34.

When they came to rescue us from the house, they didn't

:01:35.:01:38.

We literally had to still make our way to the top of the drive.

:01:39.:01:45.

The family put their life savings into the move abroad and aren't yet

:01:46.:01:55.

sure how bad the damage is but they are not holding out

:01:56.:02:00.

much hope after such a traumatic experience.

:02:01.:02:02.

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

:02:03.:02:13.

Everything we own is in that house in Italy.

:02:14.:02:16.

We came away in what we were standing up with.

:02:17.:02:20.

For now, the family is living with relatives as they try to work

:02:21.:02:22.

out their next move but they say, after the events of the last few

:02:23.:02:26.

Lucy Vladev, BBC East Midlands Today, Derbyshire.

:02:27.:02:33.

A woman has been found guilty of the manslaughter

:02:34.:02:35.

of her seven-month-old niece in Leicestershire.

:02:36.:02:38.

Leicester Crown Court heard Chaun-fang Zheng violently shook

:02:39.:02:42.

Phoebe Go to stop her crying, leaving her with a

:02:43.:02:45.

It happened while she was babysitting the infant at her flat

:02:46.:02:49.

The 31-year-old will be sentenced next month.

:02:50.:02:57.

The latest round of consultations with communities which will be

:02:58.:02:59.

People living along the proposed route say local beauty spots will be

:03:00.:03:06.

They're upset over plans to construct a viaduct for the railway

:03:07.:03:11.

It's a view which is now under threat.

:03:12.:03:20.

A proposed new 16-metre high viaduct to be built as part of the HS2 route

:03:21.:03:26.

will go through this green belt land.

:03:27.:03:29.

Campaigners say it will obstruct the view of this beauty spot

:03:30.:03:33.

I've travelled a lot round the world and I think these views are some

:03:34.:03:39.

of the most beautiful I've ever seen and I'd hate them to be lost.

:03:40.:03:42.

Helen Thompson has lived in the area for nearly 30 years.

:03:43.:03:45.

She's leading the campaign against the current plans,

:03:46.:03:48.

which will see the viaduct built here.

:03:49.:03:51.

Instead, she's calling for it to be built on the other side

:03:52.:03:54.

of the canal, making use of the existing railway line.

:03:55.:03:59.

There's lots of existing tracks and the corridor seems quite wide,

:04:00.:04:02.

and we'd like them to see if they can get it in there.

:04:03.:04:05.

At this HS2 consultation event, there was concern

:04:06.:04:09.

Local people going there in the summer,

:04:10.:04:13.

enjoying the environment, and it's destroying it.

:04:14.:04:16.

We believe that the current route is the right balance in terms

:04:17.:04:23.

of the impacts on people and the environment.

:04:24.:04:25.

Is there any hope that the viaduct could be changed from where it

:04:26.:04:28.

currently is going over two the existing railway line instead?

:04:29.:04:31.

We're not expecting at this stage to move it.

:04:32.:04:34.

We will always, as we go forward, seek to improve the design,

:04:35.:04:38.

if we can, but we don't expect at this stage to move it

:04:39.:04:41.

because we think we've struck the right balance.

:04:42.:04:43.

Another event takes place tomorrow in Long Eaton with a consultation

:04:44.:04:47.

on this part of the route closing in March.

:04:48.:04:50.

Navtej Johal, BBC East Midlands Today, Sandy Acre.

:04:51.:04:58.

Football now and it finished all square in the big

:04:59.:05:00.

And what a game - four goals, a cracking atmosphere and late drama

:05:01.:05:05.

as Derby County drew 2-2 with Leicester City.

:05:06.:05:08.

An entertaining night as they battled for local pride. Derby the

:05:09.:05:23.

better side in the first half and even scored Leicester's golf. An

:05:24.:05:32.

awful own goal! But 12 minutes later and all was forgiven. He does what

:05:33.:05:43.

he does best. Could Derby pull off an upset against the Premier League

:05:44.:05:52.

champions? He is still going. Gives Derby the lead. But in the second

:05:53.:05:58.

half, the foxes fought back in the last five minutes, the Leicester

:05:59.:06:03.

captain born in Nottingham forced a replay. A big role in the last five

:06:04.:06:10.

minutes. So MacLeod and Ranieri must do it all again in the cup to decide

:06:11.:06:12.

who goes through to the fifth round. It was pouring with

:06:13.:06:19.

rain at Pride Park. Very different night tonight. One of

:06:20.:06:39.

the fountains in Derby actually froze. Captured by one of our

:06:40.:06:44.

Weather Watchers. And some of the countryside looked very pretty. It

:06:45.:06:51.

is wet out there. We have got an area of rain. Through the evening,

:06:52.:06:55.

it has produced a lot of standing water on the roads. It is still

:06:56.:07:01.

quite chilly. Missing is developing, hill fog to the Peak District. That

:07:02.:07:06.

weather front still present first thing tomorrow morning. It will take

:07:07.:07:10.

its time to clear to the data on Saturday. Another very wet day but

:07:11.:07:14.

milder air starts to comment so it will be a different temperature

:07:15.:07:19.

tomorrow. Wet out there. Seven Celsius the maximum into the

:07:20.:07:22.

afternoon. And a breezy south-westerly wind with more rain

:07:23.:07:27.

on the way to the daytime on Sunday. I will leave you now with the

:07:28.:07:29.

outlook.
