With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:13.:00:14.

A parliamentary petition against the closure of the region's

:00:15.:00:17.

children's heart surgery unit ends at midnight.

:00:18.:00:20.

Meanwhile, campaigners say they're furious the official

:00:21.:00:23.

NHS England consultation, originally due to start in December,

:00:24.:00:26.

Our health correspondent Rob Sissons reports.

:00:27.:00:31.

Stephen was born with only half a normal functioning heart.

:00:32.:00:34.

Surgery at the Glenfield Hospital saved his life.

:00:35.:00:37.

Now the 15-year-old and his family are campaigning to keep

:00:38.:00:41.

children's heart surgery in Leicester, but they're very

:00:42.:00:44.

frustrated the formal public consultation process

:00:45.:00:47.

It really is playing with people's lives,

:00:48.:00:54.

both the staff, the patients, their families

:00:55.:00:59.

People like me might not have the support and their parents

:01:00.:01:03.

won't have the support if they have to go further away

:01:04.:01:06.

NHS England suggested closure because it says the service

:01:07.:01:10.

It still hasn't announced a date for consultation to start

:01:11.:01:16.

but previously said it would be in the New Year.

:01:17.:01:20.

Delay and uncertainty is stressful for staff at the heart unit

:01:21.:01:23.

But there's also pressure on NHS England to make sure

:01:24.:01:28.

that the consultation, when it does happen,

:01:29.:01:30.

is robust because if there are any holes in it, there could be

:01:31.:01:33.

legal challenges and that would mean even more delay.

:01:34.:01:42.

A man from Derbyshire's one of two charged with a murder in Yorkshire.

:01:43.:01:45.

Police say Darren Moorhouse died from a stab wound on Wednesday.

:01:46.:01:49.

Dale Dwyer from Buxton, and a man from Halifax,

:01:50.:01:51.

will appear at magistrates tomorrow charged with his murder.

:01:52.:01:55.

A man's been charged with an attack on a teenager,

:01:56.:01:57.

that's left him in a serious condition in hospital this weekend.

:01:58.:02:00.

It happened in Stoney Street in Nottingham early yesterday.

:02:01.:02:03.

Tom Beech from Cropwell Bishop will appear before magistrates tomorrow

:02:04.:02:06.

charged with grievous bodily harm with intent, two counts of assault

:02:07.:02:09.

A volunteer project that helps people grow healthy food has been

:02:10.:02:15.

Leicestershire County Council has given ?30,000

:02:16.:02:18.

to The Braunstone Foundation charity - also known as B-inspired.

:02:19.:02:22.

A cold winter day in Enderby, but that doesn't stop

:02:23.:02:28.

This is the Growing Communities Together Project,

:02:29.:02:32.

where local people grow healthy, organic food.

:02:33.:02:35.

It's nice when you plant something and to see it grow

:02:36.:02:39.

and then you're digging it up and then giving it

:02:40.:02:42.

And now the project has been boosted by a

:02:43.:02:48.

?30,000 Shire community grant from the county council.

:02:49.:02:51.

It will help the charity develop land to grow its produce

:02:52.:02:54.

which will be supplied through a food share scheme.

:02:55.:02:56.

Profits from the scheme will be ploughed back

:02:57.:02:59.

into the charity which focuses on improving the lives of people

:03:00.:03:01.

We'll go out into the wider community to do

:03:02.:03:05.

chutney workshops or jam making or a pastry making and it's a way of

:03:06.:03:12.

showing people that they can do things and even if they don't want

:03:13.:03:15.

to come to the farm to get engaged with the actual physical growing,

:03:16.:03:19.

they can still learn skills and techniques.

:03:20.:03:22.

Back at the allotment, the hard work continues.

:03:23.:03:24.

The cash boost, they say, will mean even

:03:25.:03:26.

greater benefits for local people and the environment.

:03:27.:03:33.

The Vulcan bomber, restored in Bruntingthorpe,

:03:34.:03:35.

It made it's last flight in 2015, before moving

:03:36.:03:39.

Now the lease on its hangar has run out, it's being mothballed

:03:40.:03:44.

while money's raised to build a new visitor centre for it.

:03:45.:03:46.

14 of the 22 staff caring for it have also been laid off.

:03:47.:03:52.

an 11th defeat of the season for Leicester.

:03:53.:03:55.

A bad weekend too for Nottingham Panthers.

:03:56.:03:59.

Then drew 2-2 with Fife in full time tonight,

:04:00.:04:03.

High pressure in charge of our weather as we move

:04:04.:04:10.

through the next few days, so it is quite a settled picture.

:04:11.:04:13.

We do have the risk of seeing a bit of fog

:04:14.:04:15.

That could be quite dense and a few patches of

:04:16.:04:19.

Temperatures falling to an overnight low of around minus one Celsius

:04:20.:04:25.

so a chilly start to the day tomorrow.

:04:26.:04:26.

That fog could be quite persistent and slow to clear.

:04:27.:04:29.

One or two patches lasting through the day.

:04:30.:04:31.

But where you are out of the fog, we will see some sunny spells.

:04:32.:04:34.

Temperatures reaching a maximum of five or six Celsius, so it really

:04:35.:04:37.

will be feeling cold despite the sunshine.

:04:38.:04:39.

And there's a similar day as we move into Tuesday.

:04:40.:04:42.

The chance of seeing some fog first thing, then

:04:43.:04:44.

a little bit of brightness into the afternoon.

:04:45.:04:47.

Your next update from us is in BBC Breakfast tomorrow.

:04:48.:04:50.

For now, from the weekenders here, goodbye.

:04:51.:05:05.

Good evening. If you are dreading the trudge back to work in the

:05:06.:05:13.

morning I'm not going to help matters. There is the prospect of

:05:14.:05:18.

nasty, freezing fog over the next couple of days. Quite localised but

:05:19.:05:21.

tricky out there on the

:05:22.:05:23.
