The youngest ever competitor The former England footballer Paul

:00:55.:00:58.

Gascoigne has been fined more than �1,200 following an incident at the

:00:58.:01:01.

railway station in Stevenage last month. At court today, he admitted

:01:01.:01:07.

assaulting a railway guard and being drunk and disorderly. It is the

:01:07.:01:16.

latest in a series of high-profile setbacks for the troubled sportsman.

:01:16.:01:22.

Another Paul Gascoigne story that has made it big in the media. He

:01:22.:01:27.

arrived through a swarm of cameras. No comment outside, but inside he

:01:27.:01:33.

spoke twice, pleading guilty to assault and drunken behaviour.

:01:33.:01:36.

Gascoigne wants to publicly apologise for his actions that

:01:36.:01:41.

evening. He now wishes to be left alone to carry on with his recovery.

:01:42.:01:46.

He was travelling from Newcastle to King's Cross, but got up here at

:01:46.:01:51.

Stevenage. We had been drinking, had trouble standing and he was

:01:51.:01:55.

stumbling towards the track. A security guard dry to help them to

:01:55.:02:00.

wheelchair, but the court was told that Paul Gascoigne became abusive,

:02:00.:02:05.

and grabbed him around the collar, pulling his shirt tightly. Charges

:02:05.:02:12.

that Paul Gascoigne also assaulted as former wife here were turned

:02:12.:02:22.

in the World Cup semifinal. Off the pitch, drink, drug and mental health

:02:32.:02:38.

problems. In 1998 his marriage to Sheryl broke down after reports of

:02:38.:02:43.

domestic violence. In December 2005 he was sacked as Kettering town

:02:43.:02:47.

manager after over 39 days. More than once he has been arrested for

:02:48.:02:55.

drink-driving. This year, this event in Northampton, film sobbing and

:02:55.:03:00.

slowing his words, soon afterwards heading to America for specialist

:03:00.:03:08.

treatment. I remember him way back, when he was playing for England.

:03:08.:03:17.

needs support. If you stop stinking, he could get back to his former

:03:17.:03:23.

self. It -- he just needs support. We obviously has his problems, and I

:03:23.:03:29.

just wanted to make sure he was OK. His solicitor said that he had been

:03:29.:03:33.

under stress and in pain after I had operation and this has been his

:03:33.:03:40.

first drink for a long time. Paul Gascoigne is �1200 in fines and

:03:40.:03:45.

costs and he says he will redouble his efforts to sort out his problems

:03:45.:03:49.

with drink. As you may have seen on the Six

:03:49.:03:53.

O'clock News, a mild who died after a row over a disabled car parking

:03:53.:03:56.

space in Biggleswade has tonight been named. He was Brian Holmes, who

:03:56.:04:00.

was 64 and came from Sandy. He had just been given the all clear from

:04:00.:04:05.

cancer. Stuart Ratcliffe reports. Today, Brian Holmes was described as

:04:05.:04:11.

a family mild he adored his family. The details of what happened here

:04:11.:04:16.

were not clear, but it appears that Brian Holmes and 65-year-old mild

:04:16.:04:21.

work involved in a dispute beside this disabled bay. Mr Holmes was

:04:21.:04:26.

pushed to the ground. He was rushed to hospital where he later died.

:04:26.:04:34.

Very sad for his family. A simple argument over a parking space.

:04:34.:04:38.

in my flat and I could hear the helicopter. I looked out the window

:04:38.:04:45.

and a sidelined in the fields. Obviously, it took off. When I came

:04:45.:04:50.

here it was full of the police. Normally quite friendly right here.

:04:50.:04:54.

I can't understand something like that happening in their over a

:04:54.:05:04.
:05:04.:05:04.

parking space. Someone died over a parking space, it is just weird

:05:04.:05:08.

round this area because you don't hear that kind of thing round here.

:05:08.:05:12.

The family of Brian Holmes said that there are devastated by the loss in

:05:12.:05:19.

such shocking circumstances. A lost his wife -- a Gloucester husband,

:05:19.:05:24.

best friend and care are all in one go. This week Mr Holmes was given

:05:24.:05:28.

the all clear following cancer treatment. Better please say a 65

:05:28.:05:33.

your old mild was arrested on Saturday afternoon under suspicion

:05:33.:05:37.

of manslaughter. They said that on Saturday this car park was full of

:05:37.:05:40.

shoppers and they are urging those shoppers to come forward to help

:05:40.:05:45.

them piece together how and why this happened.

:05:45.:05:49.

The Muslim parents at the centre of a school dinner row said today they

:05:49.:05:52.

were being hounded and vilified because of their beliefs. We

:05:52.:05:55.

reported last week that their daughter had been served pork at

:05:55.:05:58.

school by mistake, leading to the dinner lady being sacked. Today, the

:05:58.:06:03.

girl's parents said they had been frightened by the reaction.

:06:03.:06:07.

It was late last week when the article had the headlines, first in

:06:07.:06:12.

the sun and around the world. This dinner lady was sacked that dishes

:06:12.:06:18.

served pork timbres and pupils in a Cambridge school canteen. This

:06:18.:06:22.

couple were thrust into the Spotlight after they complained, but

:06:22.:06:27.

they didn't expect such a backlash. The question weather those sort of

:06:27.:06:32.

headlines would have taken place if it would have been be served to a

:06:32.:06:41.

Hindu, pork served to a Christian, it was very disappointing. A very

:06:41.:06:46.

understatement. How did you feel when you saw the article? Terrified,

:06:46.:06:54.

because they did know who to trust, where I can go for help. I was

:06:54.:06:58.

literally shaking in my house, my own home. I was driven out of my

:06:58.:07:03.

house because I felt so fearful that I packed my bags and they took my

:07:03.:07:10.

children away from Cambridge. you felt since? I have just been

:07:10.:07:14.

traumatised by it. I have been reading the papers every day, seeing

:07:14.:07:20.

the comments that have been put up. It is just horrible. I am a British

:07:20.:07:25.

citizen, was born in this country, done everything that everybody else

:07:25.:07:29.

does in this country. I would never get anybody fired over something

:07:29.:07:34.

like this! I haven't been able to sleep, haven't we been -- been able

:07:34.:07:44.
:07:44.:07:46.

to eat, to concentrate. My family don't even know me. Alison had been

:07:46.:07:51.

a school dinner lady for 11 years when she was dismissed. She said to

:07:51.:08:01.
:08:01.:08:03.

made an honest mistake and was made a scapegoat. There should be a

:08:03.:08:09.

system where they have some sort of colour-coordinated scheme. The

:08:09.:08:14.

clinical a restaurant, so every child knows where they go, what they

:08:14.:08:21.

can in candidate. We have had a few comments like this, and we have had

:08:21.:08:26.

some supportive comments, but this is a reflection of what you have had

:08:26.:08:31.

to go through. This runs as a Muslim child should attend as limbs cool if

:08:31.:08:37.

it is not to their liking. What do you think you're in a comment like

:08:37.:08:44.

that is? It is very upsetting. I want my children to be around all

:08:44.:08:49.

different people, all different colours and faiths. We are all

:08:49.:08:53.

equal, we are all humans. It is important for everyone to understand

:08:53.:09:00.

each other. I don't think Muslims should just day with one community

:09:00.:09:06.

and be separated. I think that is ridiculous. They have received an

:09:06.:09:09.

apology from the School of how they had been treated by the national

:09:09.:09:13.

media. They also contacted the press complaints commission. They said

:09:13.:09:16.

they didn't expect anyone to bend over backwards for their beliefs,

:09:16.:09:21.

they just wanted to be respected. Two passengers who sparked a

:09:21.:09:24.

terrorist alert at Stansted Airport appeared in court today and tonight

:09:24.:09:27.

the charges against them. In May, Tayyab Subhani and Mohammed

:09:27.:09:30.

Safdar were on board an aircraft travelling from Pakistan to

:09:30.:09:32.

Manchester when it was diverted, prompting a full emergency

:09:32.:09:40.

operation. Police boarded the Pakistan

:09:41.:09:44.

International airlines aircraft after it was diverted to Stansted

:09:44.:09:53.

Airport. It had been flying from Lahore to Manchester, but was

:09:53.:09:58.

stopped after the reports of threats made on board. Essex police carried)

:09:58.:10:05.

to test on the plane and later arrested two mild -- two men. The

:10:05.:10:11.

two defendants, 30-year-old Tayyab Subhani and 42-year-old Mohammed

:10:11.:10:14.

Safdar, stood side-by-side in the dock. The indictment was read to

:10:14.:10:17.

them, join the charging them with endangering the safety of an

:10:17.:10:21.

aircraft by threatening that the group and the passengers of the

:10:22.:10:24.

flights would be killed is anti aircraft by threatening that the

:10:24.:10:27.

group and the passengers of the flights would be killed is

:10:27.:10:33.

anti-aircraft blow asked that they plead guilty or, in the blue, had

:10:34.:10:41.

his bail renewed. His co-accused is expected to be released tomorrow

:10:41.:10:46.

after a �50,000 security was processed. He needs to report daily

:10:46.:10:51.

to the police and surrender his passport. The trial is to be set for

:10:51.:10:56.

Monday, the 11th of November and is expected to last six weeks.

:10:56.:11:00.

Corby is to keep its ambulance station after a U-turn by the East

:11:00.:11:03.

Midlands Ambulance Service. The controversial plan was to create two

:11:03.:11:05.

new hubs in Kettering and Northampton and a series of

:11:05.:11:09.

community stations shared with other emergency services. But, that would

:11:09.:11:11.

have meant closing these six existing ambulance stations

:11:11.:11:16.

throughout Northamptonshire. Now it seems the station in Corby will

:11:16.:11:24.

survive. Emma Baugh reports. It is one of the biggest shake-ups

:11:24.:11:28.

in the history of the service, closing and build stations across

:11:28.:11:32.

Europe and the jerks and sending crews out from larger hubs. Corby

:11:32.:11:36.

was one of those facing closure, but today the time learned it had been

:11:37.:11:43.

saved. Any services, especially things like ambulances, it has to be

:11:43.:11:50.

a good thing to have your own station. It is still needed. I have

:11:50.:11:54.

a child who has epilepsy and about the ambulance service in Corby, it

:11:54.:12:02.

could be really serious. It is not the same everywhere. Rushed and

:12:02.:12:07.

others are due to close. Campaigners here say they have concerns over

:12:07.:12:12.

waiting times. It is vital that villagers, outlining areas, have

:12:12.:12:20.

some sort of immediate ambulance response. It is not just about this

:12:20.:12:26.

area, it is about Daventry, and the other areas that need to make sure

:12:26.:12:29.

that there need to make sure that their needs are being mapped.

:12:29.:12:34.

trust maintains to improve patient care, giving staff more time to help

:12:34.:12:40.

they are needed. Today's news comes days after the chief executive of

:12:40.:12:46.

the trust. It says its plans would carry on. No one from the trust was

:12:46.:12:50.

available to be interviewed today, but they said that while Corby would

:12:50.:12:54.

stay open, other closures would still continue because it was a

:12:54.:12:59.

decision made by the board of the trust and would not be affected by a

:12:59.:13:03.

change in senior management. There is no set timetable for the

:13:03.:13:06.

changes, but they could start within months.

:13:06.:13:10.

A mosque in Peterborough has joined up with a Christian charity to start

:13:10.:13:13.

operating a food bank from its premises. The City's Islamic Centre

:13:13.:13:18.

says it's the first in the UK to work with the Trussell Trust. It has

:13:18.:13:20.

been spearheading the rapid growth of emergency food distribution

:13:20.:13:30.
:13:30.:13:32.
