Hello and welcome to Look East. This girl was told she had swine

flu. Hours later she died from meningitis. Today the Ambulance

Service apologised. One of our chief constables is warning that

out to vote. Experts are trying to find out how a 30 foot whale became

stranded on a beach in Suffolk. She witnessed the child lying hit in

the road, only to discover it was her own daughter. And how this

launched for a new crossing on a road where a 13-year-old girl was

:10:53.:11:00.

knocked down. Olivia Bower's mother witnessed the accident, but didn't

:11:00.:11:03.

realise it was her own daughter. Olivia who is thought to have been

:11:03.:11:07.

on the phone at the time is now out of her coma, but is still in

:11:07.:11:09.

intensive care. Imagine how you would feel if you saw the aftermath

:11:09.:11:14.

of a road crash only to learn later that it was your child involved.

:11:14.:11:18.

That is what happened to Margaret Bowers after her teenage daughter

:11:18.:11:22.

Bolivia was hit by Acar on this road and she made her way to school.

:11:22.:11:27.

Margaret had been on a bus which was passing the scene. I saw a pile

:11:27.:11:35.

of clothes on the floor which I now know were her. At the time, I

:11:35.:11:41.

thought she has got a cold like that. And then by the time we had

:11:41.:11:50.

gone back to the next bus stop, I get a phone call from the police to

:11:50.:11:58.

say who it was. She was at my house at the time. -- they were up my

:11:58.:12:05.

house at the time. I realised it was something quite serious. Olivia

:12:05.:12:10.

Bowers has severe injuries and has just come out of a coma. There is a

:12:10.:12:14.

campaign now to reduce the speed limit and to introduce a crossing.

:12:14.:12:21.

It is dangerous. Someone stepped off the path, before you see it, it

:12:21.:12:29.

is too late to slow down and stop. Two mac's classmates have recorded

:12:41.:12:49.

We hope she will be better the older school soon. -- to go to

Seoul soon. Mental health workers in Cambridgeshire could have done

:12:57.:13:01.

more to prevent a bipolar mother killing her baby. That's the

:13:01.:13:03.

conclusion of an independent investigation. Six-week-old Faith

:13:03.:13:07.

died in 2009. Her mother Julia Lovemore had pushed pages of the

:13:07.:13:11.

bible into the child's mouth before smothering her. The report said the

:13:11.:13:14.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust failed to assess

:13:14.:13:21.

the extent of risk. Controversial plans to build more than 600 homes

:13:21.:13:24.

on part of a flood plain in Northampton could be given the go-

:13:24.:13:28.

ahead tonight. Parts of the town were badly flooded in 1998, and

:13:28.:13:30.

many residents say the development called Pineham will make

:13:30.:13:34.

surrounding villages more likely to flood again. Our reporter Jozef

:13:34.:13:38.

Hall is in Northampton now where a planning meeting is taking place.

:13:38.:13:46.

Jozef, what have the developers had to say? The developers say they've

:13:46.:13:54.

worked with the environment agency on the scheme. I spoke to Prologis

:13:54.:13:58.

and the builders before they went into the meeting. They said it was

:13:58.:14:01.

important to understand where they are again talking about this side.

:14:02.:14:08.

It is currently a big empty field. And it is bordered by a lake. I

:14:08.:14:13.

absolutely perfect for building new homes. They say that is backed up

:14:13.:14:17.

by the Environment Agency. They have approved the plans twice. They

:14:17.:14:21.

are saying it is not a flood risk and we should be building there.

:14:21.:14:25.

Not only new homes would be there but big wide-open spaces, plus of

:14:25.:14:35.
:14:35.:14:40.

course, job opportunities and a new school. All of Cambridgeshire's

:14:40.:14:44.

black bin waste is being thrown into landfill because the machine

:14:44.:14:45.

that turns rubbish into biodegradable matter at the

:14:45.:14:47.

Waterbeach waste plant has broken. 4,500 tonnes have been dumped in

:14:47.:14:53.

the last ten days costing nearly �300,000 in landfill tax. Black

:14:53.:14:57.

been rubbish, some recyclable. Thousands of tons of Grosseteste

:14:57.:15:07.

here. For now, it is all destined for landfill. When this machine is

:15:07.:15:13.

working it processes 450 tonnes of black been rubbish every day. We

:15:13.:15:19.

filmed it when you in 2009. The waste is turned to let air in added

:15:19.:15:25.

use organic content but now the arm that supports the wheel has broken.

:15:25.:15:29.

There has been a failure of the support structure. We are not sure

:15:29.:15:33.

of the cause. We have experts on site today. They have been going

:15:34.:15:38.

over it with a fine-tooth comb. We expect the report some time at the

:15:38.:15:44.

end of October. The council says the plant has saved �300 in land

:15:45.:15:49.

filling costs since it opened -- 300 million. It will be out of rock

:15:49.:15:57.

-- action until at least the end of October. The council says any

:15:57.:16:01.

additional costs to the taxpayer will be kept to a minimum. I think

:16:01.:16:05.

the taxpayer will foot the bill. I just think that if somebody

:16:05.:16:08.

provides a service then they should be providing the service and if

:16:08.:16:12.

they cannot do that, they should be paying for the alternative. If they

:16:12.:16:18.

can fix it or buy a new one, it may be cheaper. The does not know why

:16:18.:16:23.

the machine broke and the councils say roadside collection corrections

:16:23.:16:27.

will not be affected. A sofa company in Northampton has released

:16:27.:16:31.

CCTV images of a burglary. But thanks to one of their employees

:16:31.:16:35.

the thieves didn't get the result they'd hoped for. Police have

:16:35.:16:38.

released CCTV pictures of the moment a worker at a sofa company

:16:38.:16:45.

thwarted burglars. The men had loaded several sofas into their van

:16:45.:16:48.

but thanks to the swift actions of the employee they didn't get the

:16:48.:16:55.

result they'd hoped for. I'm hoping that they have actually found the

:16:55.:17:01.

guys involved. They think he did recognise them. To a brand new

:17:01.:17:07.

sofas are loaded into a van. The store manager pulls the sofas back

:17:07.:17:11.

out of it after they left the doors open. If you put a Benny Hill theme

:17:11.:17:16.

tune to the actual footage itself, there are two guys complete idiots,

:17:16.:17:26.

knowing they were probably on- camera, and then they just needed

:17:26.:17:32.

some blue and red pants under Kate coming to the rescue her. Football

:17:32.:17:35.

and Darren Ferguson wants his players to show the same desire

:17:35.:17:37.

they showed at Hull, when they face Barnsley in the Championship
