Thank you, Tomasz. That is all from the News

:00:00.:00:09.

Hello, welcome to Friday pos`macro looked east. Tonight, a 19`year`old

:00:10.:00:17.

has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a

:00:18.:00:22.

two`year`old girl. That and the rest of the day 's news now. A ?30

:00:23.:00:28.

million boost for science students at Cambridge. Celebrations as

:00:29.:00:37.

children from across the region Mark Benjamin Britten pos`macro 100th

:00:38.:00:40.

birthday. At Doctor Who reaches 50, we look at

:00:41.:00:45.

the role this region has played in the making of this British classic.

:00:46.:00:59.

A 19`year`old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the

:01:00.:01:05.

death of a toddler in Peterborough. The two`year`old girl was taken to

:01:06.:01:08.

hospital with severe injuries and died. Yes, the hospital have

:01:09.:01:19.

confirmed the little girl was brought here at 11 o'clock yesterday

:01:20.:01:25.

morning with serious injuries. They says was pronounced dead two hours

:01:26.:01:29.

later. The postmortem took place this afternoon and we are waiting

:01:30.:01:32.

for the results but outside the home today, neighbours were leading

:01:33.:01:38.

tributes, toys, teddies and flowers. Neighbours say the girl and the

:01:39.:01:43.

mother moved the house three months ago, a new estate on the edge of

:01:44.:01:47.

Yaxley. Lots of young families and children. The girl lives opposite a

:01:48.:01:54.

children's play area. The community has been shaken badly. Absolutely

:01:55.:02:00.

devastating, we are all in shock. We have kids are self. Very surprising.

:02:01.:02:07.

You don't expect it on your own street. The first I heard about it

:02:08.:02:18.

was last night. Friends across as have spent the day searching the

:02:19.:02:21.

house and also the neighbours house will stop night, a 19`year`old man

:02:22.:02:28.

remains in custody on suspicion of murder added 28`year`old woman, the

:02:29.:02:33.

mother, arrested on suspicion of causing or allowing the death of a

:02:34.:02:41.

child. Campaigners opposed to the growth of stance at Port taken their

:02:42.:02:44.

fight to the High Court. They want to stop a report on airport

:02:45.:02:50.

expansion. They claim it may have been influenced by a former

:02:51.:02:56.

commission member used to run the parent company. The commission

:02:57.:03:03.

insists he did not act improperly. Cambridge University will get a

:03:04.:03:08.

share of investment into Ph.D. Training schemes. The government has

:03:09.:03:13.

announced ?30 million of a ?350 million pot will here to boost

:03:14.:03:17.

engineering and physical sciences in Britain. This fabric changes colour

:03:18.:03:26.

when stretched to prevent fraud in banknotes and has hit the catwalk.

:03:27.:03:32.

It is part of nano science, the science of the small also used in

:03:33.:03:36.

smartphones. Today, it was announced it will receive more government

:03:37.:03:42.

money as part of science and engineering at Cambridge University.

:03:43.:03:45.

This new funding will impact on research into the tiny, right

:03:46.:03:49.

through to the big like this gas turbine. This is excellent news

:03:50.:03:55.

because would`be setting up half a dozen new centres which will bring

:03:56.:04:00.

in 300 new students who wanted a Ph.D. S in fundamental science with

:04:01.:04:07.

strong links to British injury. A new generation of technologists will

:04:08.:04:10.

stop ?30 million of government cash may sound a lot but this electron

:04:11.:04:17.

microscope cost half ?1 million To train this student costs at least

:04:18.:04:26.

100,000. He is what some `` here is what some make of it. I am excited

:04:27.:04:32.

about the funding because it is great for students like me. It is so

:04:33.:04:37.

important we have been further funded to keep our competitive

:04:38.:04:42.

edge. The extra funding is fantastic. It allows more people to

:04:43.:04:46.

do science and technology which are vitally important to the UK academia

:04:47.:04:53.

and industry. At university, they work with big names like Nokia and

:04:54.:04:58.

Dyson. They say more money means big results. We will export the Norwich

:04:59.:05:06.

from the University into industry to fuel more collaborations and working

:05:07.:05:11.

together. The funding is crucial for people in research and to

:05:12.:05:18.

everybody. They are focused at keeping at the forefront of the

:05:19.:05:25.

global science race. New figures show a dramatic increase in the

:05:26.:05:31.

number of people diagnosed with HIV. Across the region, it is up 30% in

:05:32.:05:37.

the last year, across the Thames Valley it rose 17% and in

:05:38.:05:45.

Northamptonshire or it fell by 5%. I went for a routine checkup, four

:05:46.:05:49.

days later my blood result came back as positive.

:05:50.:05:53.

Given the crushing news, this fitness instructor believes she

:05:54.:05:58.

contracted HIV from a past relationship.

:05:59.:06:02.

The first thing I felt was what will my life be like? Will I die soon? It

:06:03.:06:08.

was terrifying. Her former partner was unknowingly

:06:09.:06:12.

carrying the virus. We had the talk about being checked,

:06:13.:06:18.

yes, I was clear, so was I. So we stopped using protection. He had not

:06:19.:06:23.

been checked, his ex`girlfriend was checked and he assumed he was clear

:06:24.:06:28.

because she was. You never know you are clear and less you get tested

:06:29.:06:35.

yourself and you hear the words An estimated 2500 people are living

:06:36.:06:40.

with HIV in the Thames Valley. One in five are undiagnosed and most at

:06:41.:06:45.

risk of passing it on. Last year, 176 people were newly

:06:46.:06:51.

diagnosed an increase of 17%. The HIV virus attacks your immune

:06:52.:06:56.

system, if caught early, doctors say many can still leave a long life. A

:06:57.:07:02.

new campaign has begun calling for people to get themselves tested

:07:03.:07:07.

There is still ignorant and stigma around HIV. One key concern is

:07:08.:07:14.

driving down the numbers and diagnosed HIV, getting people on to

:07:15.:07:17.

effective treatments and that is the key to ensuring people pos`macro

:07:18.:07:24.

long`term health and beating HIV. Since being diagnosed, Amanda is

:07:25.:07:27.

married and has a daughter. While pregnant, she took medicine to

:07:28.:07:33.

prevent the medicine `` virus spreading out is living a full life.

:07:34.:07:37.

What reactions do you get from people?

:07:38.:07:42.

Mostly good stuff, to be fair, most of them are supportive. You get some

:07:43.:07:46.

that are so frightened they will not talk to you.

:07:47.:07:52.

I had sex, I caught HIV, that is it. We all have sex, we can all

:07:53.:07:58.

catch HIV. It is not a gay thing or a black thing.

:07:59.:08:03.

Earlier, I spoke to the Terrence Higgins trust and asked why the

:08:04.:08:10.

figures in the region were going up. We are putting the increased the

:08:11.:08:14.

number of test available, there have been two major campaigns across the

:08:15.:08:18.

UK encouraging people to test and access services. These have been

:08:19.:08:22.

targeted at specific groups, gay men, the Africans who we know are at

:08:23.:08:27.

risk. These test have encouraged people to test.

:08:28.:08:31.

Are you saying the figure has not gone up?

:08:32.:08:35.

Yes, the figure has increased. We have seen many people getting

:08:36.:08:40.

diagnosed and within these diagnoses, we are recognising a

:08:41.:08:46.

number of these may have been infected for a long period of time.

:08:47.:08:51.

The figure is going up across the UK and Eastern region, why?

:08:52.:08:57.

One of the reasons is people are living with HIV for long periods and

:08:58.:09:02.

do not test, they may have decided to take the test, there is more

:09:03.:09:07.

testing in communities so there is increased awareness. The number of

:09:08.:09:12.

people may have been admitted to hospital unwell and may have been

:09:13.:09:15.

diagnosed. Testing is good but 30 years on from

:09:16.:09:20.

the scare it is, the tombstones on adverts, should we go back to that

:09:21.:09:23.

to stamp out HIV? No, we need education and

:09:24.:09:29.

information. It is recognising how we get public health messages using

:09:30.:09:35.

social media, the Internet, different types of advertising and

:09:36.:09:38.

campaigning. It is taking a different approach which may feel

:09:39.:09:45.

softer but in many ways it is more direct and pointing to individual

:09:46.:09:48.

groups. Can the school to do more to educate

:09:49.:09:51.

youngsters? Yes, both schools and colleges and

:09:52.:09:57.

making sure there is good sex and relationship education available for

:09:58.:10:02.

young people. So they are aware of contraception, using condom is at

:10:03.:10:07.

making informed choices about sex, relationships and then if they feel

:10:08.:10:11.

empowered, they can make healthy choices about their lives.

:10:12.:10:15.

Rugby at Northampton shape `` saying Chief Executive says the club will

:10:16.:10:21.

be involved in a new European competition. It follows an

:10:22.:10:23.

announcement that every major European rug the union apart from

:10:24.:10:29.

the English RFU plan to play in the Heineken cup. English clubs are

:10:30.:10:32.

behind the. global science briefs. `` they are

:10:33.:10:34.

focused. But still to come: How good is your

:10:35.:10:44.

football team at bringing on young talent? And we will have a look at

:10:45.:10:53.

the weekend weather. Some showers around but mostly dry, cloudy and

:10:54.:10:55.

chilli into the weekend. Ed Miliband is a little tonight

:10:56.:11:07.

preparing for a weekend regional conference. In a moment we'll go

:11:08.:11:11.

live to the venue and speak to Mr Miller band. First, our political

:11:12.:11:16.

correspondent looks at how Labour are doing. `` speak to Ed Miliband.

:11:17.:11:21.

This is Harlow, where the Conservatives have a majority of

:11:22.:11:27.

just under 5000. It is one to watch for 2015, because this sort of

:11:28.:11:33.

marginal seat has to be won by Labour that they want to form the

:11:34.:11:39.

next government. Ed Miliband has visited Harlow three times since

:11:40.:11:43.

becoming leader. They won control of the council last year. Activists are

:11:44.:11:46.

pleased that the party is coming up with policies they can campaign on.

:11:47.:11:51.

We go out and talk to people, they are struggling, and if you have

:11:52.:11:54.

nothing to say to them it is difficult. Now that we are talking

:11:55.:11:59.

about building homes, freezing bills, that resonates. Not everybody

:12:00.:12:06.

here is happy with Labour. The local trade union Council passed a vote of

:12:07.:12:10.

no`confidence in Harlow Council this week because it slows down a welfare

:12:11.:12:16.

advice centre. It is mounting an attack on the poorest in society,

:12:17.:12:21.

signing up to the Tory agenda, and not defending the core working`class

:12:22.:12:27.

vote. Labour have had a small but consistent opinion poll lead for the

:12:28.:12:32.

best part of two years, but what concerns some Labour supporters is

:12:33.:12:37.

that leads is not appear to be growing. With the economy improving

:12:38.:12:42.

and controversy over Labour's relations with the union and the

:12:43.:12:47.

shame the chairman of the cooperative, some fear that it might

:12:48.:12:54.

slip. Labour has 13 target seats in the east. I am told they will be

:12:55.:12:59.

unhappy if they win less than eight. With important European elections

:13:00.:13:04.

next year, this is about rallying the troops. I think we are quite

:13:05.:13:09.

happy with Ed Miliband's leadership. What they would really like is a

:13:10.:13:13.

greater level of involvement in things like policy process, helping

:13:14.:13:17.

define the terms on which the election is fought, being included

:13:18.:13:21.

in the election campaign and not just use that as part of it `` used

:13:22.:13:27.

as part. Nobody in Labour is predicting victory yet. Good

:13:28.:13:33.

evening, what do you think of the TUC passing a vote of no`confidence

:13:34.:13:38.

in a Labour council? It is a reflection of the fact that there

:13:39.:13:42.

are very difficult decisions having to be made by Labour councils

:13:43.:13:47.

because of the fact that we have huge cuts being passed on from

:13:48.:13:51.

central government, I am incredibly proud of the work we're doing in

:13:52.:13:54.

Harlow, the candidate that you heard on the film, who is talking about

:13:55.:13:59.

the cost of living crisis facing families and how a Labour government

:14:00.:14:03.

will tackle it, not standing up for a few of the top but making the

:14:04.:14:07.

economy work. Abolishing the Bedroom Tax, freezing energy prices, making

:14:08.:14:11.

a difference to low wages, doing things that will speak to the

:14:12.:14:16.

concerns of people in Harlow. You are very proud of your candidate,

:14:17.:14:23.

fat fame TUC have to vote of no confidence in her. They said she was

:14:24.:14:29.

silent. I certainly don't agree with that. She is one of our most dynamic

:14:30.:14:34.

candidates in this region. She is doing a brilliant job. What you

:14:35.:14:37.

heard from her, what Labour party members at this conference are

:14:38.:14:42.

feeling, is Labour has been setting the agenda, talking about the fact

:14:43.:14:45.

that we have a government that says everything is fixed on the economy

:14:46.:14:52.

and going fine, but ordinary people are you think we are getting worse

:14:53.:14:57.

off. The up for a fifth of the issue of energy prices, and said, if we

:14:58.:15:06.

win the election we will freeze prices until 2017, the energy

:15:07.:15:10.

market. That is what I call standing up for ordinary families in this

:15:11.:15:19.

country. Were you saying the TUC got it wrong with your candidate and the

:15:20.:15:25.

council as a holiday? They are absolutely entitled to take their

:15:26.:15:32.

own view. Iron safe I have huge confidence of the decisions we are

:15:33.:15:37.

making in Harlow. `` Diane saying. All councils are faced with really

:15:38.:15:54.

difficult choices because of a fifth of a fifth of the faith if `` we

:15:55.:15:59.

will have to make difficult decisions. I would like to ask your

:16:00.:16:09.

question about year 14. Would you abolish plans for a toll road? We

:16:10.:16:15.

are looking very closely at this, because there is a cost of living

:16:16.:16:19.

crisis, and there are deep concerns about the toll road. The government

:16:20.:16:26.

needs to come forward with the actual plans, what will the impact

:16:27.:16:30.

be? What will the knock`on effects beyond smaller roads? You could end

:16:31.:16:35.

up not making any difference in terms of traffic. The government has

:16:36.:16:40.

to come forward with proposals. We are looking at what can be done, but

:16:41.:16:43.

it is a reflection of the fact that we have a government that is not

:16:44.:16:46.

really talking about or acting on the cost of living crisis, and you

:16:47.:16:50.

have a Labour Party that is talking about it. Thank you for being with

:16:51.:16:58.

us. But the lack of the four players in the endless Premier League has

:16:59.:17:02.

been a big talking point recently. 70% of players are from abroad. For

:17:03.:17:08.

the flop? How many players are really home`grown? Players spotted

:17:09.:17:12.

when young, trained in the academy and eventually part of the first

:17:13.:17:13.

team. People need success and they buy it

:17:14.:17:26.

in. We have foreign imports coming in, and the England team are

:17:27.:17:32.

suffering. If we're not going to start in the north`east until we

:17:33.:17:38.

make sure that use the is covered. `` East Anglia. Perhaps locality

:17:39.:17:44.

should be contemplated. How important is it that your local

:17:45.:17:52.

players play for your local club? What is home`grown? According to the

:17:53.:17:56.

two main leagues, any player who has been registered with the club in

:17:57.:18:00.

England or Wales for a three`year is under the age of 21, regardless of

:18:01.:18:06.

nationality. It is debatable. It is somebody that comes through the

:18:07.:18:10.

youth team, not somebody you bought for ?4 million when he was 16 and

:18:11.:18:14.

plays for your first team when he is 21. What about the real home`grown?

:18:15.:18:21.

Colchester lead the way with nine in their first team.

:18:22.:18:26.

Norwich are the FA Youth Cup champions but not one academy

:18:27.:18:35.

product has established herself. You have players playing all through the

:18:36.:18:38.

Leeds who came through the academy but ultimately I want people playing

:18:39.:18:43.

for Norwich City in the Premier league. For fluff like Colchester,

:18:44.:18:48.

developing home`grown talent is as much about financial practicality as

:18:49.:18:55.

desirability. The financial fair play rules say clubs can only spend

:18:56.:18:58.

60% of their turnover on player wages. We have a focus, to bring

:18:59.:19:06.

forth along to the theft of the facilities, but we will be judged on

:19:07.:19:14.

what we can bring through. We will stabilise and have a real 15. Is

:19:15.:19:20.

clear the switch. At the levels of League one. If `` of League one,

:19:21.:19:28.

they will not fit with you, if they do well they will not be there. It

:19:29.:19:34.

is a difficult situation. At his old stomping ground they have an

:19:35.:19:37.

ambitious target, half of the first team to have come through the

:19:38.:19:45.

academy by 2017. Whether the management have the time to nurture

:19:46.:19:50.

that, I don't think they can. If I give you a choice between Premier

:19:51.:19:53.

league club or half the team from Suffolk what would you go for? That

:19:54.:20:00.

is really mean. Premier League is the goal. The Premier league, but

:20:01.:20:05.

how wonderful if we could have lots of the local people in. Investment

:20:06.:20:12.

in academies like these have never been higher. One club told them it

:20:13.:20:18.

costs about ?150,000 to take a player from the youth team into the

:20:19.:20:22.

first team. Financially, it should make sense, but the higher the

:20:23.:20:23.

league, the harder it gets. The 100th anniversary of Benjamin

:20:24.:20:34.

Britten's birth is being marked this weekend with some events across the

:20:35.:20:39.

country and world. He grew up in Suffolk, among his compositions, 12

:20:40.:20:49.

songs written for schoolchildren. Today, hundreds of school pupils

:20:50.:20:52.

have been performing them in his memory.

:20:53.:21:00.

350 children, seven schools, weeks of rehearsing. At the corn exchange

:21:01.:21:06.

in Cambridge it is no ordinary Friday afternoon. Rehearsing for a

:21:07.:21:11.

virtual concert, bringing school choirs together for the first time.

:21:12.:21:18.

A technical and musical challenge. The children not having worked with

:21:19.:21:22.

me or each other before, and it is a very large group of children. The

:21:23.:21:27.

children in the far corner cannot necessarily see me as such. It is a

:21:28.:21:32.

logistical difficulty. Screened live for other schools to sing along, it

:21:33.:21:37.

had to be a polished performance. The songs were dedicated to Benjamin

:21:38.:21:40.

Britten's schoolmaster brother, sang for decades. The choir is still find

:21:41.:21:47.

them quirky. One of the songs is about a man scratching his eyes out

:21:48.:21:52.

and then he cannot see. It was a bit weird, but some of it is really

:21:53.:22:02.

cool. Really exciting. 15 minutes to go after an intense morning of

:22:03.:22:06.

rehearsals. Everybody is starting to take their seats. This will be one

:22:07.:22:14.

of many concerts across the world to celebrate Benjamin Britten's 100th

:22:15.:22:20.

birthday. It is part of a global performance that will take 24 hours

:22:21.:22:27.

to complete. We are starting in Auckland, through to Santa Monica,

:22:28.:22:35.

there will be over 100,000 children across the world singing some of

:22:36.:22:41.

these songs. Friday afternoon was choir practice for his brother's

:22:42.:22:47.

school. On his centenary, what better way `` better way to remember

:22:48.:22:54.

one of England's best composers? As part of the anniversary there are

:22:55.:22:58.

two open house events. His birthplace in Lowestoft is open, and

:22:59.:23:03.

the red house where he lived in later life is open between 10`5.

:23:04.:23:12.

Doctor Who will be back on our screens this weekend with a special

:23:13.:23:16.

edition 50 years after the first episode was broadcast on November

:23:17.:23:21.

the 23rd 1963. It is now the longest running science`fiction programme in

:23:22.:23:26.

the world. Over the years, he has touched this region several times.

:23:27.:23:31.

We have links to everything from the theme tune to the evil Davros.

:23:32.:23:42.
