And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Sarah Teale.

:00:00.:00:17.

Patients in Nottingham say they're worried about plans

:00:18.:00:22.

to close their specialist pain clinic under plans to move more

:00:23.:00:25.

Gilly Hagen from Blidworth, who's been using the Nottingham

:00:26.:00:33.

clinic since being injured in a car crash 20 years ago,

:00:34.:00:36.

She has to have an injection in her neck every three to four months.

:00:37.:00:42.

Nottingham's hospitals say the change to home-based treatment

:00:43.:00:44.

is about delivering value for money but Gilly believes it

:00:45.:00:46.

They have to do it under x-ray because it

:00:47.:00:53.

That's not just that, it needs to be in a

:00:54.:01:00.

sterile environment, you need qualified staff.

:01:01.:01:02.

How could you set up a mini-theatre in the home?

:01:03.:01:11.

We have heard from patients who are not happy about these

:01:12.:01:14.

Let us talk to a doctor from the clinical

:01:15.:01:18.

This is what we do, we try and improve

:01:19.:01:24.

services to make sure we are getting the best value for our patient

:01:25.:01:27.

All these services that we have reviewed, of which pain is

:01:28.:01:31.

just one of them, we want to look at how can we improve the quality of

:01:32.:01:35.

care, and also for the best price for taxpayers.

:01:36.:01:38.

But patients we have spoken to are worried.

:01:39.:01:41.

They feel this is about money, they feel the

:01:42.:01:43.

service will be worse in the community, not better.

:01:44.:01:47.

I can't deny that money is part of this.

:01:48.:01:52.

It is part of our job to make sure we get

:01:53.:01:54.

the best value for our taxpayers but at the same time we need to be

:01:55.:01:58.

looking to improve the quality where we can

:01:59.:02:00.

and our intention is not to

:02:01.:02:01.

The service in the community is aiming to be

:02:02.:02:04.

But if you are saving money can it really be the same quality?

:02:05.:02:12.

I can tell you now that there are pain services in

:02:13.:02:15.

different areas in the community with exceptionally good outcomes,

:02:16.:02:18.

We are just looking to try and replicate

:02:19.:02:21.

the same quality of care for all of our patients

:02:22.:02:23.

A woman's been found guilty of the manslaughter of her

:02:24.:02:29.

seven-month-old niece in Leicestershire.

:02:30.:02:33.

Leicester Crown Court heard Chaunfang Zheng violently shook

:02:34.:02:36.

Phoebe Guo to stop her crying, leaving her with a

:02:37.:02:38.

It happened while she was babysitting the infant at her flat

:02:39.:02:45.

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

:02:46.:02:51.

A couple from Derby say they've lost everything after their house

:02:52.:02:54.

Peter Fletcher and his partner Clair had been living in Italy

:02:55.:02:59.

for the past two years and were trapped inside their home

:03:00.:03:01.

during the recent heavy snow and earthquakes.

:03:02.:03:03.

They're now back in the UK and say they've nothing

:03:04.:03:06.

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

:03:07.:03:16.

Clair and Peter had no phone signal, electricity or water.

:03:17.:03:18.

Petrified is probably an understatement.

:03:19.:03:25.

We literally tried to walk but when it is chest

:03:26.:03:36.

high and falling through the snow you can't do it.

:03:37.:03:39.

If we were stuck on the drive nobody was going to know we

:03:40.:03:43.

If we made it to the road no-one was going to to know we

:03:44.:03:47.

What do you do when you are in that kind of situation?

:03:48.:03:51.

If you turn the other way that could be it.

:03:52.:03:55.

The bad weather in the region has caused devastation.

:03:56.:03:58.

At a nearby hotel rescuers have been pulling

:03:59.:04:00.

bodies out after the earthquake caused an avalanche.

:04:01.:04:04.

Clair and Peter were only rescued after they managed

:04:05.:04:06.

They know they are lucky to be alive.

:04:07.:04:11.

We have lost our home, our car, our dog.

:04:12.:04:14.

The family pet got crushed, got killed.

:04:15.:04:22.

Everything we own is in that house in Italy.

:04:23.:04:25.

We literally came away in what we were standing

:04:26.:04:27.

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

:04:28.:04:32.

But with their lives in Italy destroyed they

:04:33.:04:35.

are not sure how they will buy another home.

:04:36.:04:43.

A Leicester man's been jailed for more than six and a half years

:04:44.:04:48.

for stealing a taxi at gunpoint, after threatening children

:04:49.:04:50.

32 year-old James Blockley used the fake gun last

:04:51.:04:58.

August to intimidate motorists on Groby Road - one of whom had

:04:59.:05:01.

He then robbed a taxi driver and stole his vehicle -

:05:02.:05:05.

Details of more than 2,000 people at risk

:05:06.:05:12.

of being scammed have been handed to Trading Standards departments

:05:13.:05:15.

It's part of a nationwide scheme working with victims.

:05:16.:05:18.

The National Scams Team says that elderly people who've been tricked,

:05:19.:05:24.

hand over on average ?4,000 to scammers.

:05:25.:05:26.

They're deliberately targeted by criminals who often

:05:27.:05:28.

If it is too good to be true it definitely is.

:05:29.:05:36.

You should bin it, put it in the recycle, don't open

:05:37.:05:39.

And if you are getting inundated with

:05:40.:05:42.

scam mail please notify Trading Standards,

:05:43.:05:44.

An 11 year-old boy's been reported missing in Nottinghamshire

:05:45.:05:55.

Mckenzie Lennox hasn't been seen since 9.40

:05:56.:05:57.

Officers say they're concerned for his safety -

:05:58.:06:04.

and ask for anyone with any information to get in touch.

:06:05.:06:07.

He was wearing dark tracksuit bottoms and a black bomber jacket.

:06:08.:06:13.

People living close to a popular beauty spot say it'll be ruined

:06:14.:06:16.

if a viaduct for HS2 is allowed to run through it.

:06:17.:06:19.

They've been expressing their concerns about the plans at

:06:20.:06:21.

Campaigners say it will destroy a viewpoint near Stanton

:06:22.:06:26.

Gate in Derbyshire - and harm local wildlife.

:06:27.:06:28.

This is one of two HS2 consultation events taking place in the East

:06:29.:06:42.

Midlands this weekend. One of the concerns being raised is about the

:06:43.:06:45.

building of a proposed new viaduct as part of the route which at the

:06:46.:06:49.

moment is going to a local beauty spot. There has been concern about

:06:50.:06:54.

that. We were there this morning with a campaigner who says she wants

:06:55.:06:59.

to see the line being built instead over the existing railway line

:07:00.:07:01.

rather than over green belt land. With me no is a spokesperson from

:07:02.:07:10.

HS2 Ltd, could you build the viaduct over the existing railway line

:07:11.:07:14.

rather than over green belt land? We have considered a number of routes.

:07:15.:07:17.

We believe the route we are proposing is the late route that

:07:18.:07:22.

strikes the right balance between impact and people and building a

:07:23.:07:26.

high-speed line. We will continue to seek improvements to it but at the

:07:27.:07:29.

moment this is the route that we would like to take forward. The

:07:30.:07:32.

consultation is still open, what are you hoping people will take away

:07:33.:07:38.

from the events today? I am hoping get more information, the

:07:39.:07:41.

opportunity to talk to our experts. Also the opportunity for us and HS2

:07:42.:07:47.

to their concerns. The consultation runs until the 9th of March. We will

:07:48.:07:51.

have more on this tonight at half past six. Here is the weather. Cold

:07:52.:08:04.

and wet weather on the way as we go towards the weekend but we had a

:08:05.:08:07.

frosty start this morning and that gave us some beautiful Weather

:08:08.:08:12.

Watchers pictures. But we also had a rather grey day so far. It is still

:08:13.:08:20.

looking overcast out there. There are hints of brightness as they go

:08:21.:08:24.

through this afternoon. If you see some of those do take advantage of

:08:25.:08:27.

them because as we look at the charts we can see this cold front

:08:28.:08:31.

coming in our direction. That is bringing lots of rain. Take extra

:08:32.:08:35.

care if you are on the roads overnight tonight. Quite a cloudy

:08:36.:08:39.

afternoon ahead. Some heads of brightness. That band of rain

:08:40.:08:43.

starting to come in our direction. Highs of four Celsius. Tonight it is

:08:44.:08:49.

quite a messy picture. Rain working across the region through its too

:08:50.:08:53.

late and the early hours. Walls of around two Celsius. Watch out for

:08:54.:08:59.

spray on the roads. There could be missed Ness on higher ground. The

:09:00.:09:11.

chance of showers turning wintry. Behind the brighter weather but just

:09:12.:09:16.

if you scattered showers, milder, with highs of seven Celsius. The

:09:17.:09:22.

announcement, turning more unsettled, but milder as well.

:09:23.:09:25.

Not a very nice picture. That is all for now. Goodbye.

:09:26.:09:47.

The FA Cup fourth round, next weekend, across the BBC.

:09:48.:10:05.

It's incredible, the changes that have occurred in just 50 years.

:10:06.:10:07.

Oh, my goodness me, I don't like the look of that.

:10:08.:10:09.

The Robshaws are going back in time again...

:10:10.:10:14.

Feel a little bit overwhelmed at the moment.

:10:15.:10:17.
