Hello and welcome to Look East. In the programme tonight: I'd never

:00:00.:00:12.

hurt my son ` a mother accused of killing her seven`week`old baby

:00:13.:00:15.

tells a court she doesn't know what happened to him.

:00:16.:00:36.

A U`turn for the U's. Cambridge United look set to stay at the Abbey

:00:37.:00:40.

And Peterborough's Little Miracles ` how the DIY SOS team rose to the

:00:41.:00:42.

Children In Need challenge. "I don't know what happened to

:00:43.:01:00.

Jamie. I'd never hurt my son." This is what Jacqueline Adams told a

:01:01.:01:03.

court today when accused of murdering her seven`week`old baby

:01:04.:01:05.

boy. Jamie Kightley died from multiple injuries at his home in

:01:06.:01:09.

Northampton in March last year. Both Jamie's mother and his father Adam

:01:10.:01:13.

Kightley are accused of his murder. Our reporter Mike Cartwright was in

:01:14.:01:17.

court today and joins us from our Northampton newsroom.

:01:18.:01:55.

NO SOUND. The prosecution put it to her that

:01:56.:02:00.

she knew that there were bruises on the child. She said, no, he was

:02:01.:02:11.

perfect. When asked when she first saw the bruises, she said in the

:02:12.:02:19.

hospital. I understand there are different

:02:20.:02:21.

accounts of what happened that night. All Mac this is Jacqueline

:02:22.:02:27.

Parker's version of events. This is where the evidence differs.

:02:28.:02:48.

This is Adam Kightley arriving at court. He says they both pitched

:02:49.:02:54.

Jamie down to sleep and went to bed and found him the next morning. She

:02:55.:03:01.

says that Adam was the last person to see him alive and the first

:03:02.:03:05.

person to see him dead. The prosecution said that she was

:03:06.:03:08.

hedging her bets until she knew what Adam Kightley was going to say. They

:03:09.:03:15.

both deny murder and deny a loving the death of a child.

:03:16.:03:29.

A young girl playing near to the home where a family was stabbed to

:03:30.:03:33.

death heard a shriek coming from the house. That's what a jury has been

:03:34.:03:36.

told today. The girl was a school friend of Alice Ding who was

:03:37.:03:40.

murdered in 2011 along with her parents and sister. The court was

:03:41.:03:43.

told the child could not tell whether the scream was one of

:03:44.:03:46.

anguish or pleasure. Businessman Anxiang Du is accused of the

:03:47.:03:48.

killings. He denies the charges A pensioner from Hertfordshire has

:03:49.:03:52.

been named on a list of thirteen of Britain's most wanted criminals

:03:53.:03:55.

thought to be hiding in Spain. 78`year`old paedophile Michael

:03:56.:03:57.

McCartney from Letchworth was convicted in March of abusing three

:03:58.:04:00.

boys. He failed to attend court the following month for sentencing.

:04:01.:04:07.

Planes bound for the Philippines have been loaded with aid at

:04:08.:04:10.

Stansted Airport this morning. Many more are planned for the coming

:04:11.:04:13.

days. Aid agencies say the scale of this humanitarian disaster dwarfs

:04:14.:04:18.

any in recent years. As dawn breaks at Stansted, a jumbo

:04:19.:04:25.

jet awaits its cargo. It is not food or water, it is equipment for the

:04:26.:04:31.

British Red Cross team to help them Courtney the distribution of aid.

:04:32.:04:44.

What we are sending today are generators, land Rovers, food and

:04:45.:04:46.

water. Everything they need to do their job

:04:47.:04:52.

effectively. The scale of the devastation is now clear.

:04:53.:04:57.

This lady waited for three days before she heard from her family.

:04:58.:05:09.

They have nothing there. I would like to tell people to please donate

:05:10.:05:16.

anything that you can, a penny, a pounds with be a very big help.

:05:17.:05:28.

World Vision has had a presence in the Philippines for several years.

:05:29.:05:33.

They say their presence is long`term. Once the television

:05:34.:05:39.

cameras have gone, we will be continuing to supply them until they

:05:40.:05:44.

have everything they need. Once that these is completed then we

:05:45.:05:53.

start rebuilding people 's livelihoods.

:05:54.:05:58.

This plane was loaded in one hour, after all delays could cost lives.

:05:59.:06:09.

Fewer than 15% of the public voted for them but, a year on, the

:06:10.:06:12.

Government says Police and Crime Commissioners are working well and

:06:13.:06:16.

are here to stay. But a BBC survey reveals most people still don't know

:06:17.:06:20.

who they are and what they do. We spent a day with David Lloyd, the

:06:21.:06:23.

PCC of Hertfordshire who's struggling to make his mark with the

:06:24.:06:27.

public. David Lloyd's working day starts in

:06:28.:06:42.

this courtroom. Next is a quick chat with custody

:06:43.:06:48.

officers. They are discussing strategy and about selling of a

:06:49.:06:56.

redundant police building. I do not agree that people are

:06:57.:07:04.

seeing what is it about? The public gets that this is about putting

:07:05.:07:07.

someone at the heart of leasing and crime reduction. But it seems to be

:07:08.:07:14.

failing to register with people Bill`mac I don't know his name and

:07:15.:07:18.

didn't know there was one. I can't say I do know who years Is

:07:19.:07:27.

yet as a waste of money and haven't followed the story. `` I see it

:07:28.:07:45.

I do not think they have acted up towards the role allows.

:07:46.:07:59.

I was talking about people being drunk overnight and this is a

:08:00.:08:05.

development of this. Have you given up on your original policy? I think

:08:06.:08:16.

that was exactly the area I was talking about. When you run, it is

:08:17.:08:23.

hard to measure what impact David Lloyd has had.

:08:24.:08:36.

Luton`based airline easyJet has unveiled new equipment designed to

:08:37.:08:39.

keep planes flying after a volcanic eruption. It follows the chaos three

:08:40.:08:42.

years ago when a volcanic ash cloud from Iceland led to flights being

:08:43.:08:46.

grounded for a week across Europe. The new system called AVOID will

:08:47.:08:49.

make it easier to avoid ash in the air.

:08:50.:08:58.

Spring 2010 and a volcanic eruption in Iceland empties the skies over

:08:59.:09:02.

most of Europe. 100,000 flights were grounded, Williams are stranded

:09:03.:09:09.

across the world. When the dust settled, scientists began working on

:09:10.:09:13.

a new system to stop it happening again. This man came up with the

:09:14.:09:20.

idea. The camera fitted to normal airliners which conceived as close

:09:21.:09:24.

in the distance. There is no certainty in science so

:09:25.:09:29.

we are still not sure where all the action is. `` where all the ash is.

:09:30.:09:49.

To test it, they got themselves this military aircraft.

:09:50.:09:55.

They used an industrial vacuum cleaner to spew ash out of the back

:09:56.:10:03.

of it and recreate that ash cloud. This is what it looked like. The red

:10:04.:10:16.

shows the density of the ash. You can clearly see the ash clouds,

:10:17.:10:25.

giving pilots enough time to change course.

:10:26.:10:30.

You are seeing it in real time, physically in front of you. The

:10:31.:10:37.

instrumentation can see the hazard and therefore you can avoid it.

:10:38.:10:43.

Icelandic volcanoes erupt every five years on average but we now have

:10:44.:10:49.

better forecasting, radar and planning. Coupled with this new

:10:50.:10:53.

system it means that the chaos of three years ago should never happen

:10:54.:11:07.

again. Cambridgeshire Police has been

:11:08.:11:09.

accused of attempting to spy on students. The Guardian newspaper has

:11:10.:11:12.

obtained footage showing an officer trying to persuade an activist to

:11:13.:11:15.

become an undercover informant and feed him information in return for

:11:16.:11:18.

money. The unnamed policeman wanted the activist to name students who

:11:19.:11:21.

were going on protests. Cambridgeshire Police has said

:11:22.:11:24.

officers do use covert tactics in accordance with the law. The

:11:25.:11:26.

University of Cambridge has declined to comment.

:11:27.:11:28.

For years Cambridge United's Abbey Stadium appeared to be doomed. The

:11:29.:11:32.

club planned to build a brand new stadium on the edge of the city but,

:11:33.:11:35.

after a planning battle, the U's have U`turned and now the Abbey

:11:36.:11:41.

looks set for a new lease of life. Plans have been coming to the at

:11:42.:11:46.

least idiom, home of Cambridge United, since 1932. Many were behind

:11:47.:11:55.

plans for a new stadium. But those plans were dismissed by the council

:11:56.:12:00.

which left the club needing a plan B. There has been lots of discussion

:12:01.:12:13.

about taking it to the Secretary of State but they have been brilliant

:12:14.:12:20.

landlords for us here so we looked for an alternative. This is a proper

:12:21.:12:27.

football ground with modern facilities.

:12:28.:12:32.

The common denominator is the property developer which is willing

:12:33.:12:41.

to spend several million pounds redeveloping two standards. ``

:12:42.:12:58.

stands. We are constantly told that the Abbey Stadium wouldn't afford us

:12:59.:13:07.

an opportunity to make money off the field. It doesn't look good.

:13:08.:13:18.

While he admits a new stadium would be nice, a redeveloped stadium will

:13:19.:13:22.

allow more room for hospitality areas. It can't be sold from under

:13:23.:13:33.

our feet. They hope to have the new stadium ready for the start of the

:13:34.:13:39.

2015 caesium. It will help to make the club

:13:40.:13:51.

sustainable in the long`term. Work to improve a notoriously

:13:52.:13:54.

congested junction on the M1 could begin within three weeks. Luton

:13:55.:13:57.

Borough Council has announced that junction 10a of the M1 will be

:13:58.:13:59.

upgraded as part commissioners make no difference in

:14:00.:14:00.

fighting crime. Still to come, Alex will be here

:14:01.:14:13.

with your weather forecast and how the money you give to children in

:14:14.:14:16.

need is helping these young people in Peterborough.

:14:17.:14:21.

This week, Stewart is in Shanghai, reporting on the growing trade links

:14:22.:14:25.

between our region and China. Tonight for our last instalment from

:14:26.:14:29.

Shanghai we look at tips for businesses hoping to strengthen

:14:30.:14:38.

their links with the Far East. Hello again from Shanghai. On Monday

:14:39.:14:43.

when we were marking Remembrance Day and went 8` was sweeping across

:14:44.:14:48.

parts of Asia, here in Shanghai the big news was something called single

:14:49.:14:53.

state. They have it every 11th of November. `` singles day. On that

:14:54.:14:59.

day, retailers offer their price `` offered the good at the cup place.

:15:00.:15:03.

One online retailer sold five only in US dollars worth of goods. 5

:15:04.:15:09.

billion. It gives you some idea of what this country is spending. Which

:15:10.:15:14.

is why so many companies in the east are keen to do business here. I've

:15:15.:15:18.

business correspondent has been getting some tips from some people

:15:19.:15:28.

who know. These are fluorescent signs which

:15:29.:15:34.

caught using the full range of fluorescent chemicals we have. New

:15:35.:15:38.

products from the East, looking to conquer global markets. This company

:15:39.:15:43.

makes for marking systems and other products used by the world's leading

:15:44.:15:48.

airlines. Calling technology which it wants to sell to China. The chief

:15:49.:15:52.

executive knows it will not happen overnight. He is setting up an

:15:53.:15:58.

office in Shanghai. We are looking to find co`operation with companies

:15:59.:16:01.

over there that we can innovate with and gender `` and develop

:16:02.:16:05.

next`generation product for the Chinese market is difficult. China

:16:06.:16:11.

will be taking 30% of all commercial airline for commercial traffic. East

:16:12.:16:18.

of England companies sold ?750 million of goods and services to

:16:19.:16:22.

China last year. According to the government there is plenty more to

:16:23.:16:26.

go at, so what are the top tips? We asked the East Anglia companies who,

:16:27.:16:30.

as we have seen, are already trading successfully with China. Having the

:16:31.:16:35.

right partner who can help you navigate through the complexities of

:16:36.:16:39.

a different market from your home market is obviously one of the most

:16:40.:16:43.

important things, I would say. You can only do it one way, jump on a

:16:44.:16:48.

plane and go and meet them, Cosby are very welcoming and they do want

:16:49.:16:54.

to do business with the UK customers. You must give your brand

:16:55.:16:58.

into national exposure, so we have done that by going to international

:16:59.:17:01.

trade fairs and those trade fairs are globally attended, you get

:17:02.:17:05.

buyers coming in from all over the world. China's repetition for

:17:06.:17:12.

corruption put some companies. The new president has singled out

:17:13.:17:17.

corruption as one of the issues to be dealt with further. The belief

:17:18.:17:20.

that there is widespread corruption, there might be, but it

:17:21.:17:27.

is less than it was and it is being addressed for the future. For ST G8

:17:28.:17:31.

is all about getting into the world's is aviation market. It has

:17:32.:17:37.

seen the light of China. I am sure that many of those

:17:38.:17:43.

sentiments would have been echoed in Newmarket today, experts from 60

:17:44.:17:47.

countries have been giving advice to businesses on how best to export.

:17:48.:17:52.

It is like business speed dating, Peggy country you want to export to

:17:53.:17:59.

and you get 20 minutes of advice. 16 national flags, including this one,

:18:00.:18:03.

but they come from as far afield as Malaysia and Mexico. The site each

:18:04.:18:08.

flight are experts from embassies and consulates, and they have all

:18:09.:18:12.

been flown in here to give advice on export opportunities to local firms.

:18:13.:18:17.

Have you had a lot of interest? Your Mac a huge amount, almost

:18:18.:18:21.

overwhelming. It is very promising, I saw a lot of interest. We have the

:18:22.:18:27.

structure of the Robbie Williams heads... This firm makes complex

:18:28.:18:32.

components, like this prop for a rock concert tour. Because we are

:18:33.:18:37.

very new to dealing with anybody outside of the UK, I saw this as a

:18:38.:18:41.

great opportunity to get more support, some pointers on how to do

:18:42.:18:48.

business abroad and hopefully make some contacts. The export market in

:18:49.:18:52.

the Easter meeting is worth ?27 billion per year, but we are still

:18:53.:18:57.

playing catch up. We are behind a number of our obvious competitors,

:18:58.:19:02.

Germany, France, Italy. There is no good reason why that should be true.

:19:03.:19:06.

We are gaining market share, a export to China in the past year

:19:07.:19:10.

have been going faster. We start from a low basis we have a long

:19:11.:19:14.

journey to go. The boss of this estimating firm is ahead of the

:19:15.:19:20.

game. `` engineering firm. 90% of the manufacturers goes overseas. We

:19:21.:19:25.

get comfortable dealing with the UK market and some of us get

:19:26.:19:27.

adventurous and go to Europe, but there is a better world out there.

:19:28.:19:31.

Countries like China have a huge growth. It is daunting for many

:19:32.:19:36.

people because they see China as a difficult market and there is a lot

:19:37.:19:40.

of misinformation. There is a lot of help out there, too. It is down to

:19:41.:19:44.

local firms to make most of what health `` help is on offer. We are

:19:45.:19:51.

behind the curve. What are my impressions of Shanghai?

:19:52.:19:55.

The roads are congested, you read any taxi is like something out of

:19:56.:20:00.

wacky races. This part of town is predominately a Toulouse attraction.

:20:01.:20:04.

It is the new part which is big and brash. The money men have arrived.

:20:05.:20:08.

Someone said to me that millionaires are ten a penny in Shanghai, it is

:20:09.:20:13.

the cleaners we set up and take notice of, which probably explains

:20:14.:20:18.

why George Osborne has been to China, David Cameron is coming to

:20:19.:20:22.

China before Christmas and modest and was you just a few weeks ago.

:20:23.:20:26.

Someone asked him if Britain had missed the vote when it came to the

:20:27.:20:30.

Chinese economy. No, he said, we are just fashionably late to the party.

:20:31.:20:34.

I think all of us will hope that this is true.

:20:35.:20:38.

Now if you're a fan of DIY SOS, you'll know that last night. Nick

:20:39.:20:41.

Knowles and his team attempted their biggest ever build. To mark this

:20:42.:20:49.

years Children in Need appeal, they completely re`built a centre for

:20:50.:20:51.

disabled children in Peterborough. It is called Little Miracles and

:20:52.:20:55.

Mike Liggins has been there today to see how everyone is settling in.

:20:56.:21:04.

Michelle King and her six`year`old son Oliver in the new sensory room

:21:05.:21:09.

at the miracles. It is a paedophile support group for families with

:21:10.:21:12.

children who have disabilities and life emitting support group. `` it

:21:13.:21:18.

is a support group for families and children who have disabilities. Had

:21:19.:21:25.

tried to get on the bus and the driver said no, so we refused to get

:21:26.:21:30.

off. I sat in the aisle and had a cry. I had a mum that was absolutely

:21:31.:21:37.

amazing telling me that things would be OK and he went for the Coffey.

:21:38.:21:41.

Eternity out through its old home and the new one was not fit for

:21:42.:21:47.

purpose. That is when DIY SOS got involved. Nine days, 16,000

:21:48.:21:53.

man`hours, 12 lorry loads of concrete... Hundreds of people from

:21:54.:21:57.

all over the country give their team to help in the build was only

:21:58.:22:01.

finished at 3am on the day of the big reveal. If you are ready, open

:22:02.:22:16.

your eyes. All my! It is amazing. This is our kitchen. This is where

:22:17.:22:25.

we prepare the food. No, Michelle and the other parents and volunteers

:22:26.:22:30.

are loving what has become a home from home for many. This

:22:31.:22:35.

four`year`old who has cerebral palsy, is three or four times per

:22:36.:22:39.

week. He was the trampoline and the swing. And the roundabout. And the

:22:40.:22:48.

open spaces. Words cannot describe, it has put so many smiles on

:22:49.:22:56.

families and children's faces. And Freddie was it? You like Freddie

:22:57.:22:58.

adores it. He will not leave the place. When we go it is meltdown,

:22:59.:23:04.

because you must put your shoes on. He knows when you put your shoes on

:23:05.:23:08.

it is time to go. Children In Need helps fund Little

:23:09.:23:12.

Miracles but money is tight. Michelle and others are working

:23:13.:23:15.

their socks off and not being paid. So there are big challenges ahead.

:23:16.:23:20.

But DIY SOS and all the people who helped have created a medical for

:23:21.:23:30.

these Little Miracles. Of course Look East is holding its own event

:23:31.:23:33.

for Children in Neeed tomorrow night at Wicksteed Park in Kettering.

:23:34.:23:38.

Janine will be there. Tell us more. Thanks, Susie. It is going to be our

:23:39.:23:42.

biggest Children in Need night yet. My little yellow friend and I will

:23:43.:23:46.

be there and we'll be joined by a 200 strong choir who'll be singing

:23:47.:23:49.

in a Gary Barlow challenge with others across the country. But the

:23:50.:23:54.

best bit is that you can come, too. Entry is free, the pirate ship, the

:23:55.:23:59.

dodgems all free. There'll be face painting, the Doctor Who experience,

:24:00.:24:02.

and if you've been fundraising we would particularly love you to come

:24:03.:24:09.

along and tell us all about it. Gates open at 6pm and entry is

:24:10.:24:13.

limited so the sooner you get there the better! We want to hear, don't

:24:14.:24:22.

we, from anyone who is doing anything special tomorrow.

:24:23.:24:26.

Absolutely, if you can't make it along, still get in touch and tell

:24:27.:24:30.

us what you are up to and how much you have managed to raise. The more

:24:31.:24:34.

the merrier. What about the weather?

:24:35.:24:39.

Nice but cold, wrap up warm if you're out tomorrow. We have had

:24:40.:24:46.

some fine sunshine, but it felt cold with a north`westerly wind. We did

:24:47.:24:50.

well for sunshine but that means that what follows is a particularly

:24:51.:24:56.

cold night. There is a risk of Falkirk because temperatures will

:24:57.:24:58.

get low enough to print the ground fog, but it will be patchy

:24:59.:25:05.

especially in rural locations. We will keep largely clear skies and we

:25:06.:25:08.

might look at some showers, particularly across the

:25:09.:25:12.

north`eastern part of Norfolk. That is where it will stay cloudy and

:25:13.:25:15.

those temperatures would be quite as low. If we go farther to the west

:25:16.:25:20.

temperatures of two or three degrees are quite possible, we went falling

:25:21.:25:24.
