with the husband of tennis star Elaine about Thatcher who rdmembers

:00:31.:00:37.

the good times. This is what she wants to see, lots of children

:00:38.:00:42.

playing tennis. They would be players that she would have picked

:00:43.:00:44.

herself on one of the school visits. Police forces across the region are

:00:45.:00:56.

drafting in extra officers tomorrow night as England take on It`ly in

:00:57.:00:59.

their first match of the World Cup. It follows the violence that broke

:01:00.:01:03.

out in Bedford during the Etropean The late kick`off at 11pm,

:01:04.:01:05.

is raising extra concern. In Wisbech in Cambridgeshird,

:01:06.:01:10.

the local council has hired Mike Cartwright is there

:01:11.:01:13.

and joins me now. They are calling them street wardens

:01:14.:01:31.

and they will be patrolling the streets while people pouring to the

:01:32.:01:34.

pubs to watch England play. They cannot rule out any trouble here or

:01:35.:01:40.

across the region. In places like Bedford with its rich Itali`n

:01:41.:01:44.

heritage, fans have clashed therein the past.

:01:45.:01:50.

Italian joy it night in English anger. In this phone footagd, flames

:01:51.:01:57.

as fans burn their opponents' flag. Violence sparked after the Duropean

:01:58.:02:02.

cup. This banner is calling for calm this time while the two teals face

:02:03.:02:08.

each other once again. A respect campaign started by an Italhan

:02:09.:02:12.

restaurant owner. It is a p`ssionate game. Everyone wants their country

:02:13.:02:16.

to win. It is so big in Bedford because there are so many Italians

:02:17.:02:20.

and English. We're friends `ll year round. It is a shame to throw that

:02:21.:02:26.

away for 90 minutes of football The authorities say they do not expect

:02:27.:02:30.

football violence but it dods break out, police officers say thdy will

:02:31.:02:46.

be in place to break it up. The messages, don't spoil it for

:02:47.:02:49.

yourself or for others. Polhce will be in attendance. You will be seeing

:02:50.:02:51.

a visible presence while yot are watching the game. In Wisbech,

:02:52.:02:56.

private security officers whll patrol the streets. I do not think

:02:57.:03:01.

we will have any trouble. The perception of crime is high. We

:03:02.:03:09.

basically want to make sure that everybody can come out, enjoy what

:03:10.:03:14.

they are doing and enjoy thd games and going out for a drink as well.

:03:15.:03:19.

Football violence has been described as the ugly side of the beattiful

:03:20.:03:24.

game. The hope is that our towns and cities will not see it once again.

:03:25.:03:32.

Here in Wisbech they have something called Pub Watch. All the ptbs will

:03:33.:03:37.

be watching out for trouble. Michelle is the landlady here. How

:03:38.:03:48.

does this scheme work? It is run by licensees and set up by licdnsees to

:03:49.:03:55.

fight crime and disorder in town. We also work closely with other Fenland

:03:56.:04:00.

towns and the community grotps and licensing officers as well `s the

:04:01.:04:04.

police. It is well organised. Are you expecting trouble? I don't think

:04:05.:04:11.

so. I think with the Street Marshalls, it is very proactive and

:04:12.:04:17.

it will run smoothly. What hs your message to people tomorrow night?

:04:18.:04:21.

Drink responsibly, keep out of trouble and have a good night and

:04:22.:04:26.

obviously, come in for a pint! How many people are you expecting? A

:04:27.:04:39.

couple of hundred people will be in town tomorrow evening visithng

:04:40.:04:41.

establishments. You have bedn a landlady in other parts of the

:04:42.:04:43.

region, have you ever had any trouble in the World Cup? No, it

:04:44.:04:46.

will be fine. That is the mdssage here, drink responsibly. From 1

:04:47.:04:50.

will meet to consider how bdst to These are the cheers that h`ve

probably been haunting the Liberal Democrats since the local

elections. The moment Labour ousted thdm

:07:22.:07:23.

from power and took over control In the days that followed,

:07:24.:07:26.

some openly called for Nick Clegg to stand down,

:07:27.:07:30.

feeling their party leader had Nick can be

:07:31.:07:32.

an extremely eloquent advoc`te of causes, but unfortunatelx,

:07:33.:07:38.

he is so unpopular with somd people that he actually damages those

:07:39.:07:42.

causes when he is advocating them. I don't think he can be a p`rty

:07:43.:07:47.

leader, when such a big chunk of the electorate are unwilling to

:07:48.:07:53.

give you a fair hearing. The Lib Dems' performance in the

:07:54.:07:56.

European elections was even worse. Their only MEP in

:07:57.:07:59.

the eastern region lost his seat. Some feel the Cambridge MP,

:08:00.:08:04.

a Liberal Democrat, could also lose his seat next year

:08:05.:08:06.

if Nick Clegg remains party leader. Two weeks ago,

:08:07.:08:10.

a letter went out to the party's 300 or so members locally to sulmon them

:08:11.:08:14.

to a special meeting. Clearly, local members want an

:08:15.:08:18.

opportunity to discuss it and there has been a lot of discussion among

:08:19.:08:21.

the scores of activists who have been out on the streets, potnding

:08:22.:08:25.

them for the local elections and We feel as an executive, th`t we

:08:26.:08:29.

should give our members at large, 300 of them, an opportunity to take

:08:30.:08:36.

part in a reasoned discussion. But do voters care who leads a party

:08:37.:08:41.

and does it affect how they vote? I think if you have got a r`pport

:08:42.:08:45.

with the leader then I think you I think it is more

:08:46.:08:51.

about what they stand for than I suppose the leader has to have

some sort of charisma because he They try and put a good`looking guy

now in the studio. What are the ramifications of this

:09:24.:09:37.

decision tonight? On its own, this gathering in Cambridge will not

:09:38.:09:40.

dictate whether Nick Clegg needs to start looking for a new job. But the

:09:41.:09:46.

reason it is significant is because if 70 branches of the local party

:09:47.:09:51.

call for a new leader, that would trigger a leadership contest.

:09:52.:09:55.

Cambridge could be the first domino to fall, if they call for a change

:09:56.:10:00.

at the top. Whatever the outcome tonight, it will send a cle`r

:10:01.:10:04.

message to the Lib Dems leadership that either Cambridge Liber`l

:10:05.:10:07.

Democrats still support Nick Clegg or they no longer agree with him.

:10:08.:10:13.

Which way do we feel it will go Have you been hearing from Lib Dems

:10:14.:10:17.

tonight? The very eagle eyed viewers watching that report will notice all

:10:18.:10:21.

the people speaking work lips of people speaking after the election.

:10:22.:10:26.

I have spoken to people loc`lly today, privately. None of them

:10:27.:10:31.

wanted to appear on camera or risk influencing others. They fedl this

:10:32.:10:38.

is something they want to rdsolve behind closed doors. Cambridge, the

:10:39.:10:45.

jewel in the Crown for them at the general election and they whll be

:10:46.:10:49.

asking themselves this, are they more likely to keep Cambridge as a

:10:50.:10:53.

seat in the general election with or without Nick Clegg as their leader.

:10:54.:10:57.

And we'll bring you the restlt of that meeting

:10:58.:10:59.

for the rest of the news. Still to come tonight, we look

forward to the England against Italy match and after a few one d`ys of

:11:49.:11:52.

weather, it will be cool and cloudy at the weekend, but it is not all

:11:53.:11:54.

bad news. Stars from the world of tenniswill

:11:55.:12:00.

take part in a special event this weekend in memory of Elena Baltacha.

:12:01.:12:03.

The Rally For Bally will rahse money for a cancer charity and for the

:12:04.:12:06.

Elena Baltacha Academy in Ipswich. Elena died in May from liver cancer.

:12:07.:12:09.

She was just 30 years old. @ few weeks before she died, she larried

:12:10.:12:12.

her former coach Nino Severhno. With the rally this weekend. he wanted to

:12:13.:12:15.

tell Look East about Elena's legacy She was the ultimate Warrior on

:12:16.:12:42.

court, citing the cruellest injuries and conditions of that. She was such

:12:43.:12:49.

a strong individual. She wotld battle through it. She did not know

:12:50.:12:52.

what it was like to have a healthy liver.

:12:53.:13:03.

In Rome to around the other two women, her back would go. She was

:13:04.:13:13.

having to take tablets for her back, her ankles. She never made ` big

:13:14.:13:20.

deal of it. She never said `nything about it in interviews. She would

:13:21.:13:26.

just wake up and get on with it But it was horrendous. Can you remember

:13:27.:13:34.

much of the day Elena Baltacha that was given the diagnosis? It was very

:13:35.:13:42.

difficult. It was very diffhcult. I have never experienced something

:13:43.:13:50.

like that, some strength like that any human being. To go throtgh

:13:51.:13:56.

something like that was horrible. She had just retired and had so many

:13:57.:14:02.

amazing things at her feet. But we were up against this fight, but she

:14:03.:14:10.

never once complained throughout the whole ordeal. My big memory, I

:14:11.:14:16.

suppose, which was very important for her was the Olympic year. She

:14:17.:14:22.

was so proud of this. She actually bought the battle on

:14:23.:14:38.

and we keep it in the officd on display. There are lots of pictures

:14:39.:14:45.

of her holding her since shd is just like a little girl.

:14:46.:14:52.

When you play tennis, it is important that you have quick hands,

:14:53.:14:58.

so here is a way you can pr`ctice at home. One of her biggest supporters

:14:59.:15:07.

was Judy Murray. The Federation cup captain was very important `nd she

:15:08.:15:12.

is also the patron of Elena Baltacha the Academy in Ipswich. She was so

:15:13.:15:17.

well liked and respected through the tennis world and you can sed that

:15:18.:15:21.

from everyone who has turned up We want to do whatever we can to see

:15:22.:15:27.

she is remembered and has a legacy and that this academy which was so

:15:28.:15:34.

dear to her heart survives `nd size. It will do as long as we ard in to

:15:35.:15:36.

help. This is exactly what she wotld've

:15:37.:15:45.

wanted to see, lots and lots of children playing tennis. Thdse

:15:46.:15:53.

children's girls and boys are children that she would've picked

:15:54.:15:53.

herself. For nearly all the children Her legacy, what do you think it

:15:54.:16:37.

will be? She helped so many children that would not have had a chance in

:16:38.:16:42.

serious tennis. The the reaction has been incredible. That has m`de a big

:16:43.:16:48.

difference. It is something that me and the other trustees will do to

:16:49.:17:02.

help fight for the future of the Academy.

:17:03.:17:02.

A reminder, the Rally for B`lly will take place this Sunday. Andx Murray,

:17:03.:17:03.

Tim Henman and Martina Navr`tilova are just some of the stars taking

:17:04.:17:05.

part. The mixed doubles will happen after the finals at Queen's Club in

:17:06.:17:09.

After incredible success last year with the Britten centenary,

:17:10.:17:19.

Aldeburgh Music is hoping to pull off another big hit this sulmer The

:17:20.:17:22.

67th annual festival will fdature a Music Circus, when musicians from

:17:23.:17:24.

different backgrounds get together to play different music at the same

:17:25.:17:27.

What I need you to do is just increase the volume. The choir take

:17:28.:17:50.

last`minute advice while others do a final tune`up. For some, it is all

:17:51.:18:06.

in a days work. Across the region, performance have come together to

:18:07.:18:13.

join this fantastic musical tapestry. It should be incrddible,

:18:14.:18:19.

all those people coming togdther. When I have the premise that you

:18:20.:18:26.

would not hear one thing, you will hear everything, it got my juices

:18:27.:18:28.

flowing. They will play for two flowing. They will play for two

:18:29.:18:33.

hours together at the same time The dab hand at the piano is thd

:18:34.:18:37.

festival director. He will start them off. On June the 22nd, they

:18:38.:18:48.

will be joined by some of the best orchestras.

:18:49.:19:20.

We started doing one read on and then we were told we were doing two

:19:21.:19:35.

and then we were told we were putting it all together. Ard you

:19:36.:19:43.

nervous? Sort of. Here is the organiser. Is this organised chaos?

:19:44.:19:52.

I would like to think it is organised. The roots of the festival

:19:53.:19:55.

are spiritual lead based. L`st year, the highlight was the opener on the

:19:56.:20:02.

beach. Hard to beat, so thex are doing it differently this ydar. It

:20:03.:20:11.

is nice to share an event whth the community that amateurs,

:20:12.:20:15.

professionals, people from `ll generations can come togethdr. The

:20:16.:20:23.

festival starts tonight and this musical adventure is in just nine

:20:24.:20:24.

days time. Full details of the festival can be

:20:25.:20:31.

found on the website. Back to the World Cup now and the

:20:32.:20:41.

talking is nearly over. Steve Gerrard will lead the England team

:20:42.:20:46.

out against Italy tomorrow night, cheered on across the region. In

:20:47.:20:49.

Bedford, though, some of those fans might be cheering for the other

:20:50.:20:51.

side. Bedford is said to have the biggest

:20:52.:20:59.

Italian population outside London. Some 20,000 people of Itali`n

:21:00.:21:05.

origin. They came in big nulbers after the war to work in thd

:21:06.:21:10.

brickworks and stayed. I have very happy memories of being in Bedford

:21:11.:21:14.

in 2006 when Italy won the World Cup and today, I have been back to take

:21:15.:21:19.

a trip down memory lane. I have come to see an old brick

:21:20.:21:48.

friend at the hairdresser. How are you! We still first met in 2006

:21:49.:22:00.

when Italy won the World Cup. He still kicks every ball and hs

:22:01.:22:04.

looking forward to the game on Saturday night. What do you think

:22:05.:22:10.

the result will be? I think it will be a draw. Neither side wants to

:22:11.:22:16.

lose the first match. Karel owns the pizza restaurant and when Italy beat

:22:17.:22:20.

Germany in the semifinal, the place went wild.

:22:21.:22:25.

Today, they have moved into the town centre, but the pizzas are still

:22:26.:22:32.

pretty good. He remembers how Italy went on to

:22:33.:22:44.

beat France on penalties in the final. The penalty was scordd, Italy

:22:45.:22:55.

won the World Cup and it was chaos. They were out in the streets

:22:56.:22:59.

celebrating for two or thred hours. A lovely time. I also remember being

:23:00.:23:07.

in club Italia matinee, tucked away in the back streets. Coffee, cards

:23:08.:23:15.

and table football. England versus Italy, of course.

:23:16.:23:23.

And guess what, we won. What a goal! 6`2. They are not quite exchte

:23:24.:23:41.

expecting so much excitement tomorrow night. I am going to see at

:23:42.:23:50.

a win. Back at the hairdresser, I get what he calls the full service,

:23:51.:23:56.

but it is a very good hairctt. Like many of his shop, it will bd close

:23:57.:24:02.

tomorrow night. By the magic of television, I am now in Norwich

against Cameron game. Mexico are one go ahead with just a couple of

:24:15.:24:20.

minutes to go. During the World Cup, you can get in touch with md during

:24:21.:24:26.

:24:27.:24:30.

wherever you are watching the game. Take a photograph and send ht to me

:24:31.:24:36.

at the contact details below. Back to you.

:24:37.:24:42.

Spare a thought for the England team tomorrow. They are expecting a

:24:43.:24:57.

temperature of 28 Celsius when they start the match. Not only stiflingly

:24:58.:25:04.

hot, but also very humid. They are kicking off at six o'clock local

:25:05.:25:09.

time. At least the sun will just be setting, so it may get slightly

:25:10.:25:15.

cooler. For us, we can expect cooler temperatures than today. We get

:25:16.:25:22.

temperatures up to 24 Celsits today. Still fine into the day for many

:25:23.:25:27.

people. High pressure is st`rting to move west and this will mean that

:25:28.:25:32.

the forecast will change slhghtly. Northerly winds coming in to make

:25:33.:25:35.

things a bit cool and cloudx over the next few days. Tonight, we have

:25:36.:25:43.

got the chance of some showdrs developing, particularly for western

:25:44.:25:47.

counties. They could be heavy and somebody. There is a greater risk

:25:48.:25:54.

across the west of the region. Lots of places should stay dry overnight.

:25:55.:25:59.

We start tomorrow with generally a lot more cloud alone. There is the

:26:00.:26:04.

chance of one or two showers. Many places like dry, but there could be

:26:05.:26:09.

breaks in the cloud to lose some sunshine in the afternoon.

:26:10.:26:12.

than today. High temperaturds inland than today. High temperaturds inland

:26:13.:26:28.

of 20 Celsius tomorrow. Will we get that sunshine back? The high

:26:29.:26:32.

pressure begins to build back? The high pressure begins to build days

:26:33.:26:37.

before we hit the high tempdratures of today. We start Sunday qtite

:26:38.:26:43.

closely, with again the chance of a few breaks in the code to gdt some

:26:44.:26:50.

sunshine. High temperatures similar to tomorrow. Next week starts with a

:26:51.:26:55.

lot of cloud, but prospects of sunshine with temperatures beginning
