And now the news for the East Midlands.

:00:09.:00:10.

The ruling by the Supreme Court that Parliament should have a say

:00:11.:00:20.

on triggering our exit from the European Union has been

:00:21.:00:22.

welcomed by Conservative MPs Anna Soubry and Ken Clarke.

:00:23.:00:24.

Mr Clarke, the Rushcliffe MP, said he didn't know why

:00:25.:00:27.

the Government had bothered to pursue the case

:00:28.:00:29.

And a wise judgment, which protects Parliamentary sovereignty -

:00:30.:00:34.

that's the MP for Broxtowe's verdict.

:00:35.:00:36.

Here's our political editor Tony Roe.

:00:37.:00:37.

When the decision came from the Supreme Court,

:00:38.:00:39.

Quick to react in the TV studios was Ken Clarke,

:00:40.:00:43.

his Rushcliffe constituency was one of only two areas in the

:00:44.:00:48.

East Midlands to vote remain in the EU referendum.

:00:49.:00:50.

Well, it does restore parliamentary democracy.

:00:51.:00:52.

I don't know why the Government has been

:00:53.:00:58.

bothering to resist it, because they are going to win

:00:59.:01:00.

What they're trying to do is minimise discussion.

:01:01.:01:05.

Mr Clarke voting against Article 50 when the vote now comes.

:01:06.:01:08.

Perhaps the only Tory to take that route.

:01:09.:01:11.

The next row on the horizon is over MPs getting a chance

:01:12.:01:15.

to debate the issues which will be negotiated over -

:01:16.:01:17.

leaving the single market, leaving the customs union

:01:18.:01:19.

and ending free movement of EU workers.

:01:20.:01:21.

We've moved and abandoned that without even a debate in Parliament.

:01:22.:01:26.

I think we should debate these things.

:01:27.:01:29.

Parliament should be debating these things on

:01:30.:01:34.

That's what we need to do now and have that vote on Article 50,

:01:35.:01:38.

which we now will have by way of legislation.

:01:39.:01:40.

Whatever politicians decide or even have a say on will

:01:41.:01:46.

Businesses are desperately trying to plan for a number of

:01:47.:01:54.

I was working with businesses only this morning in Derby,

:01:55.:01:57.

talking about the different potential scenarios that they might

:01:58.:02:00.

The good news is that they are in a strong position,

:02:01.:02:05.

However, delay after delay, when it comes to really setting

:02:06.:02:09.

out the kind of deal that we are going to

:02:10.:02:12.

Brexit, isn't something that helpful.

:02:13.:02:15.

John Mann, the Bassetlaw Labour MP, who was in favour of

:02:16.:02:18.

leaving the EU, says the Supreme Court has been very

:02:19.:02:20.

clear, so the Government must get on with it and put

:02:21.:02:23.

The daughter of a couple from Leicester, who were shot

:02:24.:02:35.

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

:02:36.:02:38.

preparing to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

:02:39.:02:40.

Ray and Angela Fisher were among 38 people killed at a resort in 2015

:02:41.:02:43.

Today, their daughter Donna Bradley told an inquest

:02:44.:02:46.

in London that her parents wanted to relax in Tunisia

:02:47.:02:49.

She said after the attack they will never be forgotten,

:02:50.:02:52.

A Malaysian airline has denied any connection with the corruption

:02:53.:03:03.

allegations surrounding Derby-based aero-engine maker Rolls Royce.

:03:04.:03:05.

Last week, the company paid out a record ?670 million,

:03:06.:03:07.

to settle a court case brought against them by the

:03:08.:03:10.

It follows allegations they paid millions of dollars

:03:11.:03:13.

The Malaysian based airline AirAsia has now denied any

:03:14.:03:16.

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

:03:17.:03:42.

rehabilitation services out of Nottingham City Hospital

:03:43.:03:44.

Nottingham MP's have written to the Health Secretary demanding

:03:45.:03:47.

answers, the Stroke Association says it has concerns and leading stroke

:03:48.:03:50.

campaigner fears lives could be put at risk by the changes.

:03:51.:03:52.

Our health Ccrrespondent is in the newsroom.

:03:53.:03:54.

Rob Sissons, what is the thinking behind this change?

:03:55.:03:56.

The commissioners, who control the local purse

:03:57.:03:59.

strings, say they can deliver more high quality

:04:00.:04:03.

rehabilitation in people's homes as they recover from a stroke.

:04:04.:04:07.

At the moment, much of the physiotherapy

:04:08.:04:09.

for Nottinghamshire patients is delivered in

:04:10.:04:13.

I understand staff there are upset and confused

:04:14.:04:17.

And are stroke Campaigners are unhappy too?

:04:18.:04:22.

Yes, they say the devil is in the detail, which they insist

:04:23.:04:27.

The Stroke Association is worried the care won't be as good.

:04:28.:04:34.

Now Ossie Newall at the Park in Nottingahm is a stroke survivor.

:04:35.:04:37.

He does daily exercises in the kitchen where he had his

:04:38.:04:39.

This is a cost-driven exercise and it's got nothing

:04:40.:04:48.

And I also feel it is a possibility that peoples' lives would

:04:49.:04:52.

be put at risk because of where we're going in this.

:04:53.:04:55.

I think this has been handled very, very badly.

:04:56.:05:05.

Now Nottingham MP Graham Allen has been collecting comments from NHS

:05:06.:05:08.

One says, "This is purely about saving money and not quality

:05:09.:05:11.

Another, "It all sounds highly unsatisfactory."

:05:12.:05:14.

Nottinghamshire Health Care Trust, which has been awarded

:05:15.:05:16.

the ?1.5 million contract to provide the rehabilitation

:05:17.:05:17.

stresses from April, insists it will be high quality it

:05:18.:05:20.

will maximise independence and points out patients often

:05:21.:05:23.

engage with therapy better in their own home.

:05:24.:05:24.

No-one from the NHS organisations involved have been

:05:25.:05:26.

A man has been charged with criminal damage,

:05:27.:05:50.

after an East Midlands ambulance was vandalised in Leicester.

:05:51.:05:52.

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

:05:53.:05:55.

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

:05:56.:05:57.

The Government has ruled that HS2 can't buy land which isn't needed

:05:58.:06:05.

for the construction of the high speed rail line.

:06:06.:06:07.

The move could make it more difficult for homeowners

:06:08.:06:09.

on one side of New Tythe Street in Long Eaton to receive

:06:10.:06:12.

That's despite some of them living just 40 metres from a proposed

:06:13.:06:16.

new viaduct which will carry the high speed trains.

:06:17.:06:18.

Their neighbours opposite whose homes are to be demolished

:06:19.:06:21.

The parents of a young boy from Leicestershire with a severe

:06:22.:06:32.

and progressive muscle-wasting disease have pledged to raise

:06:33.:06:33.

Emma and Alex Hallam set up the charity Alex's Wish,

:06:34.:06:37.

after their son was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

:06:38.:06:39.

I'm Alex and I'm in my year six class and

:06:40.:06:45.

we're doing maths, which is my favourite lesson.

:06:46.:06:53.

Alex is a happy and popular ten-year-old.

:06:54.:06:55.

He was diagnosed with Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy

:06:56.:06:58.

when he was four, a genetic disorder which mainly affects boys.

:06:59.:07:01.

Gradually, it will rob his muscles of their strength.

:07:02.:07:04.

It's, like, kind of annoying, because I can't run very fast.

:07:05.:07:07.

And then I can't really carry as much stuff,

:07:08.:07:13.

because I'm not as strong and it's just more difficult than it is with

:07:14.:07:17.

There is no easy and certain living with Duchenne's.

:07:18.:07:20.

It's life limiting, there is no cure.

:07:21.:07:21.

As the condition takes hold, the more things

:07:22.:07:23.

Alex won't be able to do

:07:24.:07:25.

Little deaths that you won't be able to have the ability to used to

:07:26.:07:32.

Then you will be able to have the ability to use your arms.

:07:33.:07:36.

So, it's just a nonstop, constant decline.

:07:37.:07:38.

So, Alex's parents have set up the charity Alex's Wish.

:07:39.:07:41.

They've pledged to raise ?1 million by 2020

:07:42.:07:46.

What were looking at doing at the moment is making

:07:47.:07:50.

Duchenne a much more manageable condition.

:07:51.:07:51.

To enable our boys to walk longer, to live more healthily

:07:52.:07:54.

for as long as possible, to ultimately buy time for that cure.

:07:55.:08:04.

A quick correction to our roles Royce story, that big fine is being

:08:05.:08:09.

There are still a couple of areas where there is a bit of fork

:08:10.:08:20.

There are still a couple of areas where there is a bit of fork around.

:08:21.:08:25.

Temperatures are OK. Up at around five or 6 degrees are serious. Going

:08:26.:08:30.

through to tonight, will expect to see some of the fog building back

:08:31.:08:35.

into the picture again. Particularly over the southern parts. The further

:08:36.:08:39.

north and west you are, not quite as many. Temperatures round at

:08:40.:08:43.

freezing. Cold enough for the Met office to issue a couple of

:08:44.:08:47.

warnings. The yellow one for a fog. The second one for ice. Both of

:08:48.:08:54.

those lead to tricky driving conditions. That could affect your

:08:55.:08:58.

rush hour drive tomorrow morning. Keep across your local BBC radio

:08:59.:09:02.

stations for the latest on that. It largely dull and cloudy day. A

:09:03.:09:09.

little bit of greatness. Dull and overcast, temperatures at five

:09:10.:09:12.

Celsius. Mickey most of that, because look at Thursday and then

:09:13.:09:16.

you are factoring in the wind chill and will feel like minus four

:09:17.:09:21.

That's all from us on the lunchtime team.

:09:22.:09:23.

Catch us at 6:30pm this evening for our next update.
