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

:00:12.:00:14.

First tonight, thieves have stolen a collection tin

:00:15.:00:16.

which was to help a nine-year-old girl with disabilities undergo

:00:17.:00:19.

Kareena Hayes from Derbyshire says they should hand

:00:20.:00:24.

Kareena Hayes likes playing with her friends,

:00:25.:00:31.

Kareena also has a form of cerebral palsy

:00:32.:00:37.

Her dad has been raising money for her to have an operation so that

:00:38.:00:44.

hopefully in the future Kareena will be able to walk independently.

:00:45.:00:48.

I hope at the end I'll be able to walk freely

:00:49.:00:51.

It would be the most amazing thing in the world.

:00:52.:01:01.

It's hugely life changing for her, to improve her mobility,

:01:02.:01:05.

remove the spasticity from her muscles and hopefully

:01:06.:01:10.

The operation and the after-care cost almost ?30,000.

:01:11.:01:17.

Family, friends and the local community in Nuneaton have been

:01:18.:01:20.

raising money for Kareena but last week one of the collection tins

:01:21.:01:24.

The charity box was like this, and it's sealed up and we haven't

:01:25.:01:31.

opened it up to see, so it's got her picture on it

:01:32.:01:34.

and everything and I just don't understand how anyone could do that.

:01:35.:01:37.

It's really disappointing because people put money in it

:01:38.:01:39.

for me and they took it and it could have meant more to me

:01:40.:01:46.

The police are urging anyone with any information to contact them.

:01:47.:01:52.

For Kareena, she is desperately hoping she can have the operation

:01:53.:01:55.

Police have confirmed the identity of a man killed

:01:56.:02:04.

The 22-year-old was found with injuries in Albion Street

:02:05.:02:11.

early yesterday morning, but died in hospital.

:02:12.:02:14.

Police want to talk to any taxi drivers in the area at the time

:02:15.:02:17.

A fight in Ashby-de-la-Zouch has left a man in a critical condition.

:02:18.:02:23.

Forensic teams were at the scene in Market Street for much of the day.

:02:24.:02:27.

Police want to trace the driver of a silver taxi,

:02:28.:02:30.

parked nearby at around 2:30 this morning.

:02:31.:02:32.

Three men arrested earlier have been bailed, a fourth man

:02:33.:02:35.

A man who's been fighting brain tumours since he was a child

:02:36.:02:41.

has officially opened a new MRI unit in Leicester.

:02:42.:02:44.

This new unit in the grounds of the Leicester Royal Infirmary was

:02:45.:02:47.

22-year-old Luke Swain from Lutterworth cut the ribbon.

:02:48.:02:52.

It's helped me quite a lot in the years and obviously

:02:53.:02:56.

looks a lot better than the other ones.

:02:57.:02:59.

I think it's going to help a lot more people.

:03:00.:03:02.

We can do anything and everything on it in terms of MRI.

:03:03.:03:06.

It's got everything that you possibly could need

:03:07.:03:10.

Football now, and Leicester City remain a point off

:03:11.:03:15.

For the foxes, their fifth premier league defeat in a row,

:03:16.:03:21.

If you watched tonight's BAFTAS, did you spot the Nottingham

:03:22.:03:25.

He's Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the BBC's Young Musician of the Year.

:03:26.:03:34.

The 17-year-old was chosen to play alongside the Academy's tribute

:03:35.:03:37.

to those who've died in the last year.

:03:38.:03:40.

The show and his performance of Hallelujah were

:03:41.:03:42.

It has been head cold and damp day with plenty of rain now behind grey

:03:43.:04:00.

skies. We should start to see a change as we head to the day

:04:01.:04:04.

tomorrow, held by a change in the wind direction, that easterly breeze

:04:05.:04:08.

tied to suck up something drier and clearer.

:04:09.:04:15.

The cloud will help keep temperatures up and we have a bit of

:04:16.:04:21.

a breeze, so we'll be frost free with cabbage between two and four

:04:22.:04:25.

Celsius. Fog patches could develop through the morning but it will

:04:26.:04:30.

start to get drier, with some breaks in the cloud, and that is going to

:04:31.:04:34.

help boost temperatures ever so slightly, pushing up to six Celsius,

:04:35.:04:38.

but that easterly breeze is going to make it feel much colder alt and

:04:39.:04:41.

about, a biting easterly breeze, but about, a biting easterly breeze, but

:04:42.:04:45.

nevertheless, as we had to restart working week, things will steadily

:04:46.:04:50.

improved. We are seeing some temperatures pushing back to double

:04:51.:04:53.

figures and will get some sunshine to week.

:04:54.:04:54.

Elise is here with more for you tomorrow morning in BBC Breakfat.

:04:55.:04:57.

I'm sure most of us are glad to see the back of this weekend. It's been

:04:58.:05:15.

cold, bleak and at times wintry. It provided some beautiful weather

:05:16.:05:19.

Watchers photos, like Sheffield earlier today. I suspect some of the

:05:20.:05:22.

lying snow will be blown around

:05:23.:05:24.
