With your news now for the East Midlands.

:00:12.:00:13.

There are fears from one of Nottinghamshire's leading

:00:14.:00:16.

politicians that changes to immigration announced

:00:17.:00:17.

across the Atlantic, could have repercussions here.

:00:18.:00:19.

Nottinghamshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping's warning

:00:20.:00:21.

came this afternoon during a civic service marking

:00:22.:00:23.

He said the EU referendum already prompted a rise

:00:24.:00:26.

in racial tensions locally, and President Trump's new ban

:00:27.:00:28.

on nationals from certain muslim countries could hinder murk

:00:29.:00:31.

Senior politicians, like the President of the United States,

:00:32.:00:43.

are in a position to destroy it, and I fear they are

:00:44.:00:46.

What will that mean for Nottinghamshire?

:00:47.:00:48.

People will be set against people, street against

:00:49.:00:50.

street, neighbourhood against neighbourhood,

:00:51.:00:51.

and we'll see more concern, more anxiety and possibly

:00:52.:00:53.

A teenager's in hospital with stab wounds, after being attacked

:00:54.:01:06.

Police say it happened on Thursday evening,

:01:07.:01:09.

when five or six men wearing balaclavas got out of a silver BMW

:01:10.:01:12.

at the junction of Wood Street and Royal East Street.

:01:13.:01:15.

The 18-year-old victim suffered injuries to his back and legs.

:01:16.:01:17.

Officers are appealing for witnesses.

:01:18.:01:24.

A man saved by an organ transplant today started walking 100

:01:25.:01:26.

miles to encourage others to register as donors.

:01:27.:01:28.

Simon Elmore was taken seriously ill aged 33,

:01:29.:01:30.

but after receiving a new kidney, recovered enough to win Gold

:01:31.:01:33.

He and his supporters spoke to Jo Healey today in Derbyshire.

:01:34.:01:36.

If he tells you his story, he'll admit he was in a very,

:01:37.:01:40.

very dark place and possibly feeling suicidal - I think

:01:41.:01:42.

That's because, eight years ago, his kidneys failed.

:01:43.:01:45.

Then, two years ago, Simon had a kidney transplant.

:01:46.:01:49.

I was on dialysis at Derby, got a phone call

:01:50.:01:53.

at ten o'clock and it was, "Simon, we've got a kidney for you."

:01:54.:01:56.

And the first thing that went through my

:01:57.:01:58.

head was, "I'm going to the World Transplant Games in seven months,

:01:59.:02:01.

And that's exactly what he did - not just one but several medals.

:02:02.:02:05.

And today he began a seven-day 100 mile

:02:06.:02:07.

trek through Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, which he hopes

:02:08.:02:09.

A good thing for a good cause, basically, isn't it?

:02:10.:02:13.

I think it's a really big challenge, and I think he's going to

:02:14.:02:16.

Two years ago I had a car crash, so that's put me in a wheelchair.

:02:17.:02:35.

So I really respect what Simon is doing - it's good.

:02:36.:02:37.

We need a lot of people today because more people are on the

:02:38.:02:42.

So certainly it is a cry out for people to donate.

:02:43.:02:45.

He couldn't walk 50 yards to the coffee

:02:46.:02:47.

And now, you know - well, he can go 100 miles,

:02:48.:02:51.

It would be a great accomplishment, if nothing else.

:02:52.:02:55.

Among his biggest supporters, the mayor of his hometown.

:02:56.:03:02.

If we do this for seven days and we save one life, or we give

:03:03.:03:05.

quality-of-life to one person, then you've all done something

:03:06.:03:07.

People living near a Nottinghamshire park say they're angry vandals have

:03:08.:03:19.

The area around Dovecote Lane park in Beeston has recently undergone

:03:20.:03:23.

This weekend, a row of blossom trees have been snapped in two.

:03:24.:03:27.

People are very protective of the community.

:03:28.:03:32.

They care about the community and the outrage I have seen online

:03:33.:03:35.

When it could have gone on something else.

:03:36.:03:41.

It could have gone on something else in the children's

:03:42.:03:45.

But just to do this, it's just mindless.

:03:46.:03:48.

Two very different matches this weekend for Nottingham Panthers.

:03:49.:03:59.

They lost five nil away to Cardiff Devils last night,

:04:00.:04:01.

but bounced back this evening, to beat Coventry Blaze 8-3.

:04:02.:04:04.

We had a frosty start this morning, but we shouldn't see too much in the

:04:05.:04:18.

way across tonight. We have this low pressure system moving out of the

:04:19.:04:22.

way, so it should be a little drier in the early as well. We'll start to

:04:23.:04:27.

see those showers moving awake eastwards. Hillfort here and there.

:04:28.:04:33.

Lose tonight of around four Celsius. As we run towards tomorrow morning,

:04:34.:04:36.

we will see some brighter spells first thing, but then that cloud

:04:37.:04:41.

will increase over the course of the day and later in the afternoon we

:04:42.:04:44.

have this band of showery rain coming in our direction with highs

:04:45.:04:47.

of around seven Celsius. I will of around seven Celsius. I will

:04:48.:04:50.

leave you with the Outlook. Some milder temperatures on the way as we

:04:51.:04:53.

We're back tomorrow morning with our first bulletin at 6:25am.

:04:54.:05:08.

Good evening. Very soggy down south today. A wash-out of the day for

:05:09.:05:15.

some of us. Scotland, northern parts of England, had sunshine. It's going

:05:16.:05:19.

to be cold. Already is. This is what is heading our way for the week

:05:20.:05:24.

ahead. We need our brollies out and it'll turn Wendy later in the week.

:05:25.:05:29.

The rain is clearing. I wouldn't say necessarily particularly drying out

:05:30.:05:33.

after this rain band boost towards the east, it'll stay damp but cloudy

:05:34.:05:38.

and murky in the north. Maybe freezing fog in places. It will be

:05:39.:05:43.

cold in the glands of Scotland. It could be down to -10 degrees, it's

:05:44.:05:47.

already about -5 or 6 degrees right

:05:48.:05:49.
