That's all from the BBC News at One

- so it's goodbye from me -

0:00:000:00:01

and on BBC One we now join the BBC's

news teams where you are.

0:00:010:00:17

And now the news for

the East Midlands, I'm Sarah Teale.

0:00:170:00:19

Good afternoon.

0:00:190:00:20

A man's been arrested in Nottingham

in connection with the illegal

0:00:200:00:23

storage of waste at an industrial

unit that went up in flames.

0:00:230:00:26

The huge fire at Walesby

in Nottinghamshire smouldered

0:00:260:00:28

for more than a month and could be

seen for miles.

0:00:280:00:33

Other storage sites are also

being investigated.

0:00:330:00:35

Mike O'Sullivan reports.

0:00:350:00:44

Early-morning police officers and

the Environment Agency raided a

0:00:440:00:47

flat. They want to question a man

over the illegal storage of waste at

0:00:470:00:51

a business park at Walesby in

Nottinghamshire with thousands of

0:00:510:00:57

tonnes of waste went up in flames.

We are not sure what started the

0:00:570:01:03

fire but the operators are going to

be left with a massive bill. We have

0:01:030:01:07

been working with the operators to

secure appropriate waste disposal

0:01:070:01:11

for the Ashes and any remaining

waste. They lost both of their

0:01:110:01:15

buildings as well in that fire.

This

was the scene at the Oak farm in

0:01:150:01:23

Walesby. Mainly plastic waste on

fire. Not thought to be started

0:01:230:01:29

deliberately but it smouldered for a

month. They are getting the man

0:01:290:01:32

ready to be taken away to the police

station after being arrested and

0:01:320:01:37

they say inside they found 41

cannabis plants also. The

0:01:370:01:42

Environment Agency want to question

the man over lesser amounts of

0:01:420:01:45

illegally stored waste at an

industrial estate in certain

0:01:450:01:51

Bonnington in Nottinghamshire and at

a farm in Leicestershire. Raids were

0:01:510:01:56

carried out at two addresses in

rather in South Yorkshire. One

0:01:560:01:59

person is understood to be attending

a police station manned voluntarily.

0:01:590:02:06

Five men have gone on trial

in connection with the imprisonment

0:02:060:02:09

and death of a man found

in a Leicester car park.

0:02:090:02:11

The body of Promise Ndlovu

was found last October.

0:02:110:02:14

It's claimed he and a group

of men were involved

0:02:140:02:17

in a scam that went wrong.

0:02:170:02:18

Kuldeep Singh, and Kehar Hayer

are accused of manslaughter.

0:02:180:02:23

They, and three others

are also accused of false

0:02:230:02:25

imprisonment and perverting

the course of justice.

0:02:250:02:28

They deny the charges

at Nottingham Crown Court.

0:02:280:02:33

A man's been charged

in connection with the stabbing

0:02:330:02:36

of a 19-year-old man in Nottingham.

0:02:360:02:37

It happened in the Lenton

area last week.

0:02:370:02:39

The victim remains in a serious

condition in hospital.

0:02:390:02:43

22-year-old Lea Reece Anderson,

of Albert Grove, Nottingham

0:02:430:02:46

is charged with causing grevious

bodily harm with intent

0:02:460:02:48

and being in possession

of an offensive weapon.

0:02:480:02:52

An 18-year-old arrested

on suspicion of attempted murder

0:02:520:02:55

remains in police custody.

0:02:550:02:58

There are almost

2,500 homeless people

0:02:580:03:00

in the East Midlands.

0:03:000:03:02

That's according to

the housing charity Shelter.

0:03:020:03:04

It's used a number of sources

including official rough-sleeping

0:03:040:03:07

and temporary accommodation data

to produce the estimated figures.

0:03:070:03:12

The report comes as volunteers

in Leicester begin helping

0:03:120:03:14

rough-sleepers on the city's streets

as part of a week-long project.

0:03:140:03:24

We are going across the whole city

of Leicester trying to find every

0:03:240:03:29

rough sleep out there. We know some

of them are visible and sleep in the

0:03:290:03:32

middle of the city but a lot of them

are elsewhere. We want to engage

0:03:320:03:37

them, speak to them about what they

might want and how they can come off

0:03:370:03:41

the street and get information about

them.

0:03:410:03:44

A Syrian refugee has told

us she was overwhelmed

0:03:440:03:46

by the welcome from her

new neighbours in Nottinghamshire.

0:03:460:03:48

Manal Raweah's one

of around 400 Syrians

0:03:480:03:50

who've been resettled,

here in the East Midlands.

0:03:500:03:52

Our Social Affairs Correspondent,

Jeremy Ball, reports.

0:03:520:04:00

At their new home in Gedling,

musical reminder of a comfortable

0:04:000:04:05

life that were shattered by war.

Manal Raweah's passion is crochet

0:04:050:04:11

and she tries to improve her English

to improve her career as a hospital

0:04:110:04:18

life technician. She had to leave a

job because of deadly air strikes

0:04:180:04:22

around their apartment in their

Syrian city.

I was standing in the

0:04:220:04:31

kitchen and all the glass from the

window came over me. I told my

0:04:310:04:37

husband we have to leave because it

is very dangerous.

Their city became

0:04:370:04:43

a front line between rebel fighters

and Syrian government forces so they

0:04:430:04:47

headed for the Turkish border.

Leaving Syria meant becoming

0:04:470:04:52

refugees and when they applied the

resettlement, Britain invited them

0:04:520:04:55

here. This is the moment they

boarded the plane for a welcome in

0:04:550:05:00

Nottinghamshire that they'll never

forget.

My neighbour is very kind

0:05:000:05:06

and lovely. When we came to my house

the first time, she gave to me a

0:05:060:05:13

flower. The British people are

overwhelming us in kindness.

This

0:05:130:05:21

performance was for the charity

workers who helped them settle in

0:05:210:05:25

Nottingham, a small way to say thank

you.

0:05:250:05:29

Next this lunchtime:

you know it's the start

0:05:290:05:31

of the festive season

when the annual Christmas display

0:05:310:05:33

opens at Chatsworth House.

0:05:330:05:35

This year's theme is a Victorian,

Charles Dickens-style Christmas.

0:05:350:05:38

Our reporter Carol Hinds is there.

0:05:380:05:41

Carol, how is it looking?

0:05:410:05:50

Yes, it is. I am standing on the

grounds of Chatsworth House but this

0:05:500:05:55

morning I have been to the old

curiosity shop and it is part of

0:05:550:06:00

this year's theme. With me is Janet,

head housekeeper. Tell me about this

0:06:000:06:06

Dickensian Chrisman -- Christmas.

Everybody loves the old curiosity

0:06:060:06:14

shop and Scrooge coming good in the

Christmas Carol. We have decided

0:06:140:06:19

this is the year to try it out.

What

were the main challenges in

0:06:190:06:25

decorating the house?

The main thing

is getting everything in. We have

0:06:250:06:29

five days to install and have huge

Christmas trees. Some are 25 foot

0:06:290:06:35

tall. We have a rotating Christmas

tree, animations to set up, rigging,

0:06:350:06:42

scaffolding to build and all while

the visitors are visiting the house.

0:06:420:06:46

It is the running for longer.

Yes,

until the 7th of January. We need

0:06:460:06:53

extra in the watering cans.

I will

bring you more from behind the

0:06:530:06:58

scenes as the staff decking the

halls. Join me at 6:30pm this

0:06:580:07:02

evening.

0:07:020:07:03

50 years of BBC local radio has been

celebrated today in Leicester.

0:07:030:07:06

In 1967, the city became the first

to have its own radio station,

0:07:060:07:09

in what is now a network of 40 up

and down the country.

0:07:090:07:12

The anniversary was celebrated this

lunchtime by bellringers

0:07:120:07:14

at Leicester cathedral,

and is being followed by a party

0:07:140:07:16

for former editors.

0:07:160:07:25

It was all new. There was no book

written about how you did it. You

0:07:250:07:32

made it up and did it. Some of what

we did was pretty appalling but it

0:07:320:07:40

was locally appalling and some of

what we did was really very good and

0:07:400:07:44

inventive and lives on.

0:07:440:07:45

Time for the weather, here's Rich.

0:07:450:07:52

Gorgeous blue skies at Chatsworth

House. A change from yesterday.

0:07:520:07:55

Gorgeous blue skies at Chatsworth

House. A change from yesterday.

0:07:550:07:55

It looked lovely at Chatsworth

House. We had a bit of frost around

0:07:580:08:02

in some places but it has become a

gorgeous day. If we take a look at

0:08:020:08:07

the weather Watch pictures, we had

some beautiful sites sent him and it

0:08:070:08:12

has continued through this morning.

Gorgeous pictures have arrived in

0:08:120:08:16

and it will stay this way for much

of the day. Please send your

0:08:160:08:22

pictures in and we'll may show them

later on this afternoon. It is

0:08:220:08:27

shaping up to be pretty lovely. Not

much happening behind me because we

0:08:270:08:32

have lots of sunshine around. It

will be bright and dry and

0:08:320:08:38

temperatures around nine Celsius.

Not as warm as yesterday. The winds

0:08:380:08:42

are a little bit lighter. As we go

into this evening, we see cloud

0:08:420:08:48

moving in and it will thicken up

through the course of the night.

0:08:480:08:52

There is a chance that we will see

one or two patches of light rain in

0:08:520:08:56

places and a bit of drizzle. It is

slightly milder than last night.

0:08:560:09:03

Lows of four Celsius. Tomorrow is a

different picture. A gloomy start

0:09:030:09:09

with some rain around and it will

clear away and we should have some

0:09:090:09:14

brighter conditions and some

sunshine by the afternoon.

0:09:140:09:17

Temperatures around 12 Celsius.

0:09:170:09:19

That's all from us.

0:09:190:09:20

Anne and Dominic are back

with East Midlands Today at 6.30pm.

0:09:200:09:23

Until then have a great afternoon.

0:09:230:09:29

We leave you with a gorgeous shots

from Chatsworth House.
