If if if if if if if if we are in the cause in the in which you. Do

:00:11.:02:22.

you and we were in there on Tuesday, the three above, when I got

:02:23.:02:26.

a call to say, look up and come home. It is now a murder enquiry

:02:27.:02:34.

full story appeared on Crimewatch and arrest be made. A year on, still

:02:35.:02:42.

no one has been charged. The police believed the answer to this crime

:02:43.:02:45.

lies within this community thought a year on mother asking people to

:02:46.:02:51.

think back to a friend or loved one is mulling a smoker, covered in

:02:52.:02:55.

blood, acting strangely. The editor of the local paper says people are

:02:56.:03:02.

losing patience with the police There is a sense of inevitability it

:03:03.:03:06.

will go down as another unresolved crime. That would not a lot of

:03:07.:03:10.

people's illusions about the ability of the police to deal with yet

:03:11.:03:15.

another murder in Wisbech on top of the major crimes we've had two in

:03:16.:03:21.

the last five, six, seven years Cambridge are pleased that they

:03:22.:03:25.

won't stop until a time that Keller for the 12 month after Una Crown's

:03:26.:03:36.

murder, local pressure is growing. Detective Chief Inspection Jon

:03:37.:03:38.

Hutchinson is leading the investigation. Earlier tonight I put

:03:39.:03:42.

it to him that if they had launched a murder investigation straightaway

:03:43.:03:45.

they may already have caught Mrs Crown's killer. The reason for that

:03:46.:03:47.

is the way in which the offender manage the crime scene. It's been

:03:48.:03:53.

widely publicised that Mrs Crown was burnt to hide friends gathered is as

:03:54.:03:56.

well as the full extent of what had taken place, and has been locked on

:03:57.:04:01.

the outside. In quite a calm and skilled way, the offender had done

:04:02.:04:06.

that bulls are now at two to say, if we had identified it, we may have

:04:07.:04:10.

been in a different situation but it was a mistake by the officers who

:04:11.:04:15.

attended at the time but perhaps an understandable mistake. It is led

:04:16.:04:18.

her family to say they'd be let down by you. You can understand that

:04:19.:04:22.

surely? I know that they'd be let down by what initial police

:04:23.:04:26.

attendance but what I also know is that they are hugely supportive of

:04:27.:04:30.

the current police investigation. They want to work with us, with the

:04:31.:04:35.

community, to bring a killer to justice. We have an extraordinary

:04:36.:04:40.

record of solving murders. We have to treat each investigation with the

:04:41.:04:43.

fact available at the time. You say you have a good record about the

:04:44.:04:49.

editor of a local newspaper is told as people are losing faith in the

:04:50.:04:53.

police force's ability to tackle crimes like this. What would you say

:04:54.:04:57.

to them? I find elements about surprising. Includes surveys of

:04:58.:05:03.

local residents, we haven't identified that bulls we have a

:05:04.:05:07.

large team working on theirs and we will continue to work on this until

:05:08.:05:11.

we catch the killer. It has been 12 mums, though bulls what has been the

:05:12.:05:17.

obstacle in use solving best? The way we solve these crimes... Through

:05:18.:05:19.

witnesses. One of the worst performing

:05:20.:05:53.

hospitals in the region is facing its toughest inspection of recent

:05:54.:06:02.

items. It has consistently failed to meet waiting times at accident and

:06:03.:06:12.

emergency. People have had to wait six times the national average.

:06:13.:06:19.

The work on the outside is nothing compared to what managers face on

:06:20.:06:23.

the inside. Northampton General is one of 19 hospitals identified as

:06:24.:06:29.

putting patients at increased risk. The CQC has made inspection a

:06:30.:06:35.

priority. Why should people in Northampton and beyond have

:06:36.:06:37.

confidence in the service you provide her? Every hospital in the

:06:38.:06:45.

UK has a confident search to improve quality, and we are no different to

:06:46.:06:53.

other Holani `` hospitals. We have concerns, the most important thing

:06:54.:06:57.

is to be aware of concerns and work as hard as we can. The CQC

:06:58.:07:04.

identified a number of areas of concern including pressure on

:07:05.:07:08.

emergency care and failure to meet government targets, shortages of

:07:09.:07:11.

senior doctors and nurses and criticism by staff and patient,

:07:12.:07:17.

patients like this couple from Northampton with concerns, but

:07:18.:07:21.

generally are pleased with the care they got.

:07:22.:07:46.

The hospital acknowledges that improvement is needed but they

:07:47.:07:51.

insist that some have already been made but timmy`macro.

:07:52.:07:56.

We have to improve the standard in these hospitals to those areas. The

:07:57.:08:05.

inspection is one of the toughest that the hospital will face, they

:08:06.:08:09.

have been using CQC guidelines that are much more progress.

:08:10.:08:14.

The inspectors will start work on Wednesday when they meet inspectors

:08:15.:08:20.

at a public meeting. They will then spend some time at every department

:08:21.:08:24.

before returning for unannounced inspections. It is not expected that

:08:25.:08:28.

their findings will be made public until six weeks later.

:08:29.:08:36.

Next on night, the most powerful man in horse racing has appeared on

:08:37.:08:38.

camera for the first time to talk about the cheating scandal that

:08:39.:08:42.

shipped Newmarket last year. Sheikh Mohammed said that the trainer

:08:43.:08:48.

implicated in the doping scandal never work for him again. Let's go

:08:49.:08:50.

to the Godolphin training ground now.

:08:51.:08:56.

It has taken a while, but Sheikh Hammett has finally spoken out about

:08:57.:09:00.

the scandal that rocked the Newmarket community, the sport in

:09:01.:09:03.

Britain and has fast racing empire around the world.

:09:04.:09:09.

It was back in April that drug testers is that it has yard and

:09:10.:09:13.

banned the trainer for eight years. Sheikh Mohammed put his tables

:09:14.:09:17.

immediately into a state of lockdown, he says he was shocked but

:09:18.:09:22.

the truth will come out. `` put his stable.

:09:23.:09:27.

Controversy that shot a thing to the core, one of the biggest operations

:09:28.:09:34.

and merging in the history of the sport. `` controversy that shocked

:09:35.:09:45.

everyone to the core. I was shocked, I have many trainers, and if one of

:09:46.:09:50.

them does the wrong thing, they gave him eight years and I gave him a

:09:51.:09:58.

lifetime. It is finished. The trainer at the centre of the tall,

:09:59.:10:03.

one of two trainers in Newmarket, was suspended in April of last year

:10:04.:10:08.

for doping 22 racehorses. He tried to fight the length of the ban, but

:10:09.:10:17.

later admitted a catastrophic error. He will never come near my horses

:10:18.:10:26.

again. Treatment for the long`term, he will not come to see the races.

:10:27.:10:31.

We will find out the whole story and we will all know what happened.

:10:32.:10:37.

Former London police chief Lord Stevens has been called in to

:10:38.:10:41.

oversee an internal enquiry. It came after an illegal shipment of

:10:42.:10:47.

unlicensed equine drugs were seized at Dunston airport, shifting the

:10:48.:10:51.

focus to his interest in insurance racing. Lord Stevens, he will really

:10:52.:11:00.

go through everything and meet everybody, and I think he is getting

:11:01.:11:08.

independent... He's doing a good job. The truth will come out. The

:11:09.:11:15.

Godolphin operation has hundreds of courses at Newmarket, Dubai and

:11:16.:11:17.

around the world, but has his reputation damaged? No, of course,

:11:18.:11:28.

if they think I knew, but I am clear and I still love horses and racing.

:11:29.:11:34.

Nine months on, Sheikh Mohammed has broken her silence and reaffirmed

:11:35.:11:39.

his commitment to racing. He has invested millions in British racing

:11:40.:11:45.

for his value remains undiminished. Is this finally over for Sheikh

:11:46.:11:52.

Mohammed? Can he move on finally? Not yet, the enquiry into the equine

:11:53.:11:56.

operation is still underway and it started in October after the

:11:57.:12:01.

revelations about the possible use of steroids and other banned drugs

:12:02.:12:06.

in his extensive string of endurance horses. Sheikh Mohammed has not

:12:07.:12:11.

indicated if Lord Stevens' report will be published or when it will be

:12:12.:12:15.

finished, but he says it will be truthful and only then will the

:12:16.:12:22.

sport be able to fully move on. The Tory party has decided to back

:12:23.:12:27.

their newly elected candidate for Southeast Cambridgeshire despite a

:12:28.:12:31.

voting mix`up. It is thought a counting mistake and that Lucy

:12:32.:12:35.

Fraser did not win the contest last month, but on Friday night, she was

:12:36.:12:39.

three endorsed as candidate. Today, her main opponent, Heidi Alan,

:12:40.:12:45.

called for supporters to unite behind Lucy Fraser.

:12:46.:12:50.

I came at resident who was gorged by a stag in Scotland has regained

:12:51.:12:56.

consciousness. She has had two operations to repair

:12:57.:13:02.

the damage. `` a Cambridge resident.

:13:03.:13:02.

Those 12 months after Una Crown's murder,

:13:03.:13:04.

local pressure is growing. Still to come on the programme

:13:05.:13:16.

tonight: The origins of man at a caravan park in Norfolk. Plus,

:13:17.:13:20.

nursing with a smile ` the hospital recruits from Spain and Portugal

:13:21.:13:21.

making a difference in Suffolk. Now, next time you walk down a town

:13:22.:13:33.

centre street, ask yourself this question. Who owns the land? You

:13:34.:13:36.

probably don't know some of it is actually in private hands. Tonight

:13:37.:13:41.

in Inside Out, they ask who owns the East? You can probably guess a few `

:13:42.:13:46.

the wealthy aristocracy and the Queen own large swathes of the

:13:47.:13:50.

region's six million acres. The Church and the Forestry Commission

:13:51.:13:55.

are other major land`owners. But the research has also thrown up a few

:13:56.:14:03.

surprises. Alex Dunlop reports. Think of our top landowners, and you

:14:04.:14:06.

might think aristocracy, but you would only be partly right. This

:14:07.:14:10.

farm shop as part of the 22,000 acre estate on the Norfolk /Suffolk

:14:11.:14:21.

border. It's owner and his family are outside the top six original

:14:22.:14:24.

landowners, as is the Queen at Sandringham. These estates do not

:14:25.:14:28.

run themselves, of course. It is now a business and as the be run like

:14:29.:14:33.

one. We had to make the estate pay for itself. It is actually quite

:14:34.:14:37.

radical change, is state like this one being subject to over the past

:14:38.:14:46.

decade. Organisation 's line`up as our five biggest landowners. At

:14:47.:14:51.

five, the region's wildlife trusts. You think of the rapidly expanding

:14:52.:14:56.

population and rapid expansion, agriculture, climate change, all of

:14:57.:15:00.

that means nature is up against it. So it is hugely important that we

:15:01.:15:04.

have these nature reserves. The Church of England owns some of the

:15:05.:15:08.

most valuable land in the region. Just ahead at number three, the

:15:09.:15:11.

Forestry Commission. County Council 's come in at number two. Between

:15:12.:15:16.

them, they own more than 76,000 acres of farmland. There are many

:15:17.:15:23.

public spaces which are, in fact, Private. The town centre in Corby

:15:24.:15:28.

belongs to a property company which also owns bars of Newmarket and

:15:29.:15:32.

Milton Keynes. Ultimately, they can exclude people from this very public

:15:33.:15:36.

area. We have two insure a clean, safe and pleasant shopping

:15:37.:15:40.

environment forever one. It is the same for any town centre throughout

:15:41.:15:44.

the UK. When the public think they have a public right of access, it is

:15:45.:15:48.

really a permission, what a lawyer would call a license to use the

:15:49.:15:52.

land, rather than a rights to use the land. There is no such thing in

:15:53.:15:58.

this country as a public right to use land. Back to the top five, and

:15:59.:16:03.

the region's biggest landowner by far is... That sign should give you

:16:04.:16:09.

a clue. At 82,000 acres, it is, of course, the Ministry of Defence.

:16:10.:16:13.

Taking the Army training area in Norfolk, the RAF bases across the

:16:14.:16:18.

region, and it is perhaps not that surprising. But as the MoD cuts

:16:19.:16:22.

back, so does its real estate. The pressure for land is intense, which

:16:23.:16:25.

is why he owns the East matters so much to so many of us.

:16:26.:16:29.

You can see tonight's Inside Out here on BBC One at 7.30.

:16:30.:16:33.

Before you become a fully qualified nurse, you will have spent years in

:16:34.:16:37.

training and had to learn a lot of skills. But I think everyone agrees

:16:38.:16:41.

the most important thing is to have compassion. At the West Suffolk

:16:42.:16:46.

Hospital in Bury St Edmunds, they went to Portugal last year to boost

:16:47.:16:49.

recruitment. They simply couldn't fill their vacancies with home`grown

:16:50.:16:52.

staff. And the results have delighted NHS bosses, who say

:16:53.:16:55.

compassion comes naturally to the new faces. Kim Riley has been to

:16:56.:17:04.

meet them. On duty in AMD today, 29`year`old

:17:05.:17:11.

Ana Luisa. Monitoring David Goodwin's heart rate and blood

:17:12.:17:14.

pressure. He was knocked out in a fall while riding on Newmarket Heath

:17:15.:17:20.

this morning. How do you like your cup of tea? One sugar. One sugar.

:17:21.:17:27.

She is one of 62 trained nurses recruited in Portugal last year.

:17:28.:17:31.

They had all completed a four`year degree course, backed up by nine

:17:32.:17:34.

months working in an Acute Hospital. One year on, they have won praise in

:17:35.:17:37.

their care and compassion. You'll have you been looked after?

:17:38.:17:43.

Particularly well. It has been not too busy this morning, so I was

:17:44.:17:46.

straight in and attended two straightaway. So, Gold standard, I

:17:47.:17:53.

must say. In our degrees, we are prepared in the ways of being very

:17:54.:17:58.

caring and respectful to all the people, and treating people with

:17:59.:18:07.

sensitivity and all of that. But I don't think we are different from

:18:08.:18:12.

any other nurses that I have met here. At the end of the day, do you

:18:13.:18:16.

feel you have done some good today, you have done some thing

:18:17.:18:21.

worthwhile? Yes, always. When the patient comes to us and thanks us,

:18:22.:18:26.

you think, I have done nothing special, but for them, it is a big

:18:27.:18:31.

thing. That is good. That is a good feeling. The hospital says there is

:18:32.:18:36.

a surplus of registered nurses in Portugal, so it is not depriving the

:18:37.:18:41.

country of medical expertise. I am thrilled to welcome the Portuguese

:18:42.:18:43.

nurses into the wider nursing workforce. A lovely, and they

:18:44.:18:48.

deliver very high quality care. Now with what they're worth a 1000

:18:49.:18:55.

strong nursing staff, they do not anticipate another recruiting

:18:56.:18:59.

drive. Working alongside newly qualified local students, and and

:19:00.:19:02.

her colleagues say in their chosen career, the future lies here.

:19:03.:19:07.

It now seems very likely that the first human beings to settle in

:19:08.:19:10.

Britain did so in Norfolk. Scientists now believe they walked

:19:11.:19:13.

from the European mainland and settled on what is now a caravan

:19:14.:19:19.

park in the village of Happisburgh. That was almost a million years ago

:19:20.:19:22.

when the East Anglian coast was joined to the continent. The

:19:23.:19:25.

evidence pointing towards early human activity will be the subject

:19:26.:19:28.

of a new exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London.

:19:29.:19:38.

A busy day on the Manor Park caravan site in Happisburgh. These men, all

:19:39.:19:46.

fine examples of 21st`century man trying to change a wheel. Little do

:19:47.:19:48.

they know that underneath their feet, the secrets of their early

:19:49.:19:55.

ancestors could live. I have had amber out of the cliff here. In the

:19:56.:19:59.

year 2000, Mike Chambers was working at the beach at Happisburgh when he

:20:00.:20:04.

discovered a flint hand axe. It changed what we know about early

:20:05.:20:09.

human history. I have got the honour, and it is an honour. 700,000

:20:10.:20:14.

500,000, I am not going to argue a couple of hundred thousand years, at

:20:15.:20:19.

least half a million years ago, a guy lost this, and I am the one that

:20:20.:20:23.

picked it up next. There is almost a connection. There feels like a

:20:24.:20:27.

connection. Since that discovery, archaeologists have made further

:20:28.:20:31.

finds here, and they now think that early man was here close to 1

:20:32.:20:36.

million years ago. For the new exhibition, the natural is the

:20:37.:20:38.

museum has commissions to Dutch model makers to create life`size

:20:39.:20:42.

dummies are of what early man might have looked like. Quite hairy, and

:20:43.:20:48.

probably not very fragrant. Another strange thing, the North Sea there,

:20:49.:20:59.

lots of it. Well, that was not there 1 million years ago. That was land.

:21:00.:21:03.

Imagine that. This is a map of what historians think the UK look like a

:21:04.:21:08.

million years ago. The Thames estuary was in Norfolk, and you

:21:09.:21:11.

could have walked to Holland. Giant animals roamed the land, and early

:21:12.:21:17.

man hunted them for food. The material we have at Happisburgh is

:21:18.:21:20.

bits of flint where they were sharpening tools, cutting up bones,

:21:21.:21:25.

butchering creatures, and so it is a nice insight into this very early

:21:26.:21:30.

community. It is exciting. You have just got to keep your mind open.

:21:31.:21:34.

Walk along the beach, enjoy their view, but keep your eyes open. Look

:21:35.:21:39.

down. If it is there and unusual, pick it up. It might be rubbish. I

:21:40.:21:43.

have loads of rubbish at home, my wife tells me! But occasionally, I

:21:44.:21:48.

come up with something a bit different. Archaeologists are now

:21:49.:21:50.

hoping to find some evidence of early man, a skeleton, perhaps. It

:21:51.:21:56.

is fascinating to imagine what life must have been like Bal ancestors,

:21:57.:22:00.

and what on earth would they have made of these men?

:22:01.:22:07.

Next, we're talking rubbish. By the end of today, 2.25 million pieces of

:22:08.:22:11.

litter will have been dropped in the UK. Almost half of the UK population

:22:12.:22:15.

admit to dropping litter. The most common item to be thrown away is a

:22:16.:22:19.

cigarette butt. Of course, most of us moan about litter, but a group of

:22:20.:22:23.

friends in Suffolk decided to stop moaning and do something about it.

:22:24.:22:34.

The details from Kevin Burch. There is nothing more annoying than

:22:35.:22:38.

rubbish being dumped in the countryside. Whether it is rubbish

:22:39.:22:46.

like this, all rubbish like this. But not everybody responds with

:22:47.:22:49.

anger. Some people respond with action. They call themselves Rubbish

:22:50.:22:57.

Friends, volunteer litter pickers who, once a week, target trouble

:22:58.:23:03.

spots around Newmarket. What I really like about it is, when we

:23:04.:23:07.

have finished a stretch of par`4 road, looking back and thinking,

:23:08.:23:10.

that looks like it has been hoovered. The next time I drive past

:23:11.:23:14.

it and it looks nice still the next day, that is so satisfying. We used

:23:15.:23:18.

to go to the pub for lunch afterwards, and whoever picked the

:23:19.:23:22.

worst bit at a cocktail as a prize. Keen to lend a hopeful hand, the

:23:23.:23:28.

local MP, Matthew Hancock, kitted out and ready to started. Everybody

:23:29.:23:34.

likes road to be neat and tidy, but that means making sure you keep your

:23:35.:23:38.

rubbish in the car, and not relying on community minded souls like these

:23:39.:23:42.

to come and pick it up will stop the group collect up to 15 bags of

:23:43.:23:46.

rubbish per time. Their work is backed by the local council, which

:23:47.:23:49.

sends out a truck to stake the letter away. It has also just

:23:50.:23:53.

installed this bin to persuade people to tidy up behind them. I

:23:54.:23:59.

suppose cynics might say this is getting the job done on the cheap.

:24:00.:24:04.

They might, but I say this is community work in their own very,

:24:05.:24:08.

keeping communities green. If others want to do this, please come forward

:24:09.:24:11.

and let get on with it. It is incredibly satisfying. Very quick.

:24:12.:24:18.

We barely spend 40 minutes a week doing it, but we each pick up around

:24:19.:24:22.

two. In that time. So we must be making a bit of a difference. They

:24:23.:24:27.

say it is better than going to the gym. Fun, fresh air, and the feeling

:24:28.:24:30.
