Hello and welcome to Thursday's programme.

:00:00.:00:00.

How the majority of children in this patch are leaving school

:00:07.:00:11.

What we need to do is raise the aspirations of our students. We need

:00:12.:00:20.

to to do well and believe success is possible and to engage with their

:00:21.:00:22.

learning. one man has died after

:00:23.:00:23.

a fire engine overturned And with temperatures set to drop

:00:24.:00:26.

again tonight, it could be days And I am getting a lesson from chess

:00:27.:00:50.

from a 12-year-old. He is tipped to be a future grandmaster.

:00:51.:00:52.

Most children in our region are leaving school

:00:53.:00:55.

with qualifications below the national average.

:00:56.:00:59.

Pupils are now measured using Attainment 8, based

:01:00.:01:01.

on a broad range of GCSE and other results

:01:02.:01:04.

Only Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire were above

:01:05.:01:06.

Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire were just below.

:01:07.:01:10.

With Luton then Peterbourough falling well behind.

:01:11.:01:14.

And concerns about pupils average results in Fenland has caused

:01:15.:01:17.

the Government to commit an extra ?6 million to help them.

:01:18.:01:20.

Figuring out the formula for success.

:01:21.:01:35.

The answer may be as complicated as cracking this equation,

:01:36.:01:38.

but the Government is opening a new ?6 million fund

:01:39.:01:40.

The children at this Wisbech school are in one of the country's

:01:41.:01:44.

A share of the money will help recruit new teachers

:01:45.:01:48.

As we know, education improves social mobility.

:01:49.:01:55.

The access to further education and the labour market.

:01:56.:01:59.

However, it is about much more, because we have to raise

:02:00.:02:01.

We need them to want to do well, to believe that success

:02:02.:02:07.

is possible, but also to engage with their learning.

:02:08.:02:10.

These pupils may only be a few miles away from the more affluent centres

:02:11.:02:13.

of Peterborough and Cambridge, but historically, schools here have

:02:14.:02:16.

received less funding than other parts of the country.

:02:17.:02:24.

The concern is that low levels of finding can lead to low levels

:02:25.:02:27.

of ambition among children from poorer backgrounds.

:02:28.:02:30.

They need that constant push and motivation sometimes to push

:02:31.:02:32.

them to get that bit further in education.

:02:33.:02:39.

It doesn't matter which school you go to, if you work hard enough,

:02:40.:02:42.

When you apply for things, they see your postcode,

:02:43.:02:47.

and they think, oh, someone from in London would

:02:48.:02:49.

They are more likely to get something.

:02:50.:02:53.

However, I have worked really hard and I have pushed

:02:54.:02:56.

So what does social mobility look like?

:02:57.:03:01.

The question posed at this careers event in Cambridge.

:03:02.:03:03.

Here, children are being encouraged to think about where good school

:03:04.:03:06.

It's something that opens up career paths for them,

:03:07.:03:13.

extends their opportunity, gives them the access

:03:14.:03:17.

to higher paying jobs, more satisfying careers.

:03:18.:03:19.

According to the Government, the new ?6 million fund

:03:20.:03:22.

will break down barriers by awarding disadvantaged children.

:03:23.:03:29.

But with 75 schools across East Camb and Fenland sharing the money,

:03:30.:03:34.

Well, the local MP for North East Cambridgeshire was behind

:03:35.:03:44.

Steven Barclay joined me from Westminster to explain how

:03:45.:03:47.

the money would top up increases already coming, through changes

:03:48.:03:50.

Well, there does pay to be further adjustment on the fair funding.

:03:51.:04:02.

Progress Cambridge got the biggest increase of any county

:04:03.:04:04.

But it is true, it was from a low base.

:04:05.:04:08.

That is why we have been nominated as one of just 12 areas

:04:09.:04:11.

in the country to have this priority status.

:04:12.:04:14.

That is going to be a great opportunity for us to tap

:04:15.:04:16.

into the flagship programme of the Department for Education

:04:17.:04:20.

and ensure that we are getting the additional money which comes

:04:21.:04:22.

over and on top of the existing funding.

:04:23.:04:24.

It is a great result for Fenland, but what about Bedford,

:04:25.:04:29.

what about Luton, what about Peterborough?

:04:30.:04:30.

Why isn't the Conservative Government going out and identifying

:04:31.:04:36.

and properly funding education so we do not get these disparities

:04:37.:04:40.

We are addressing the funding formula that we inherited.

:04:41.:04:49.

There are other schemes, Peterborough has had other

:04:50.:04:51.

initiatives that have gone in from the Department.

:04:52.:04:53.

This key flagship programme, it was important that

:04:54.:04:56.

East Cambridgeshire and Fenland didn't miss out on that.

:04:57.:04:58.

Because we feel, in the past, we have been forgotten.

:04:59.:05:03.

We have already written to everyone of my schools about the programme,

:05:04.:05:06.

and we will be working closely with them.

:05:07.:05:08.

I have a meeting with the Department for Education next week

:05:09.:05:11.

in terms of how we start to shape our engagement

:05:12.:05:13.

The key thing about this is that it will give better

:05:14.:05:24.

opportunities to students in the east cambridgeshire and Fenland.

:05:25.:05:26.

How can the kind of scheme that you will access with a ?6 billion

:05:27.:05:31.

There are some bright pupils in the Fenland schools,

:05:32.:05:34.

but they are not quite getting to the achievement level that

:05:35.:05:37.

It is about aspiration and leadership in a way, isn't it?

:05:38.:05:44.

Let me answer that directly, shall give you a good

:05:45.:05:50.

One of the things the scheme will do will be allow us to access best

:05:51.:05:57.

Children in schools in my area not to be saying, my parents

:05:58.:06:05.

didn't go to university, my parents didn't do certain jobs

:06:06.:06:08.

and therefore I don't think it will be an option for me.

:06:09.:06:14.

I want children within my areas to have

:06:15.:06:16.

An investigation's underway after a pedestrian was knocked down

:06:17.:06:19.

and killed by a fire engine in Royston.

:06:20.:06:21.

It happened last night while the vehicle was responding

:06:22.:06:23.

This evening the victim has been named as Mitchell Bailey,

:06:24.:06:26.

It was during a routine call to a house fire at around 8:45pm

:06:27.:06:34.

last night that this fire engine came off the road and overturned.

:06:35.:06:37.

It is unclear what happened to cause the moving crash,

:06:38.:06:40.

which resulted in a pedestrian losing his life.

:06:41.:06:52.

According to the police, the fire engine was going

:06:53.:06:54.

Instead, it overturned here, hitting a pedestrian.

:06:55.:06:58.

Police say the man died at the scene.

:06:59.:07:01.

His next of kin have been informed and are being supported

:07:02.:07:04.

saw and heard what happened and said they're left stunned.

:07:05.:07:21.

I heard it's coming down the road, I wondered what it was.

:07:22.:07:24.

We heard all that the commotion and I think after it happened.

:07:25.:07:28.

We saw the blue lights flashing from my house.

:07:29.:07:30.

We could see all of the fire engines and police coming.

:07:31.:07:33.

We heard the air ambulance coming as well.

:07:34.:07:35.

It must be devastating for the family obviously.

:07:36.:07:37.

And the fire crew, especially the driver.

:07:38.:07:39.

I think it has left the town in shock, really.

:07:40.:07:44.

Four people were on board the fire engine at the time.

:07:45.:07:47.

Two were taken to hospital for precautionary checks.

:07:48.:07:50.

Today, Hertfordshire's Chief Fire Officer offered his condolences

:07:51.:07:53.

We are supporting the police in all their work.

:07:54.:08:00.

We know there was an accident, we do know unfortunately someone died.

:08:01.:08:02.

We are there to help and save people.

:08:03.:08:07.

We don't want to be involved in incidents like this.

:08:08.:08:09.

Again, condolences to everyone involved.

:08:10.:08:14.

Investigations by what the police and Fire Service are now underway.

:08:15.:08:17.

To find out how and why this came to happen.

:08:18.:08:26.

Over 2500 homes in Oundle are without gas tonight.

:08:27.:08:29.

The problem began at 11.30 last night, and throughout the day

:08:30.:08:31.

engineers have been trying to locate the fault, whilst also visiting

:08:32.:08:34.

every home to turn gas supplies off to ensure homes are safe.

:08:35.:08:38.

We'll be live at the emergency contact centre shortly,

:08:39.:08:42.

but first this report from Stuart Ratcliffe who's

:08:43.:08:44.

It's lunchtime, and normally this restaurant would be full of diners.

:08:45.:08:54.

With no gas, it means no hot meals, and no central heating either.

:08:55.:08:57.

It will be the same story this evening as well.

:08:58.:09:02.

I will contact the customer 's book tonight because it might be tomorrow

:09:03.:09:21.

to say I am sorry. By this hairdresser, today was my problems

:09:22.:09:25.

were a boost. We have been inundated this morning saying people have no

:09:26.:09:30.

hot water heating, they are in to have their hair washed and

:09:31.:09:36.

blow-dried. It has a big impact. The problem started last night and by

:09:37.:09:40.

this morning 80 engineers were working across the town survived the

:09:41.:09:46.

source of the problem. Perhaps the bigger problem, turning the gas off

:09:47.:09:50.

at 2500 properties. We need to get into people's homes was a

:09:51.:09:54.

particularly if the gas meter is inside the property. Far as macro,

:09:55.:09:59.

it would be helpful if we could gain access. If you are not going to be

:10:00.:10:04.

encourage at a neighbour? That would be helped. The problem is where the

:10:05.:10:10.

top of the town, but this town's motto, it appears to be keep calm

:10:11.:10:14.

and carry on. In my childhood, we had no central heating. You put on

:10:15.:10:18.

an extra jumper and you smile stoically. We had a back-up. We have

:10:19.:10:25.

an emergency you to. It hasn't affected us too much. We have

:10:26.:10:32.

electric fires, we will be all right. This machinery regulates the

:10:33.:10:38.

pressure of the gas supply. By mid-afternoon, engineers had found

:10:39.:10:42.

that this was because of the problem. The fault is now fixed but

:10:43.:10:47.

not an end to the disruption yet. I would urge people to go to the

:10:48.:10:51.

customer centre next to the library in the harbour, so too are a team,

:10:52.:11:03.

and we will -- the three night. We are covering from many angles but be

:11:04.:11:06.

without them to come to the customer centre. The National Grid can't say

:11:07.:11:11.

when services will return to normal, but it could be several days.

:11:12.:11:14.

Mike Cartwright is Oundle for us this evening.

:11:15.:11:16.

Mike do residents there know when the gas will back on?

:11:17.:11:22.

They don't and that is why they are coming here to find out. All that

:11:23.:11:28.

the advisers are here, they are talking to customers. They will be

:11:29.:11:33.

here late into the night. A steady trickle is coming here. People are

:11:34.:11:37.

treating this as more of an inconvenience than a crisis. One

:11:38.:11:42.

woman said a second ago she had to take a day off work because the

:11:43.:11:44.

schools are close. The same will happen tomorrow. It is causing a

:11:45.:11:51.

problem. Darren was in Stuart's package. When will this be fixed,

:11:52.:11:55.

Darren? We first have to understand what has happened. In the early

:11:56.:11:59.

hours, late last night, the gas supply went off to ?2500. We had to

:12:00.:12:06.

fix the problem. We have done that, carry that out today. We have 80

:12:07.:12:09.

people drafted from across the country. That is engineers and

:12:10.:12:15.

support staff. Now we have to visit everyone's home to turn off the gas

:12:16.:12:19.

supply and the meter. We are in the process of doing that now. We have

:12:20.:12:23.

to get into the home first before we can reintroduce gas into the system.

:12:24.:12:28.

We have to go to everyone's home. People coming in here what don't

:12:29.:12:35.

know what answers. We need to gain access, we are encouraging people to

:12:36.:12:45.

come to the hub next to the library. Tell us when they are available. We

:12:46.:12:48.

need to get in as quickly as possible. Temperatures are expected

:12:49.:12:52.

to be around -1 for the next couple of nights so people will be keen to

:12:53.:12:54.

heat their homes. A Cambridgeshire man has been jailed

:12:55.:12:57.

staying chilly but some sunshine on the way -

and also still to come: An amateur footballer from Stansted

:13:42.:13:44.

of business in Bedford no major So tonight the first meeting

:13:45.:13:47.

of the Community Business School is taking place to try and grow

:13:48.:13:50.

"from the ground up" Small businesses are

:13:51.:13:53.

all the more important. Tom Barton has been meeting some

:13:54.:13:59.

of those behind the idea 26 wrote Alex Somerville is part of

:14:00.:14:13.

a new read of entrepreneurs. He publishes educational children's

:14:14.:14:19.

books written partly in English and partly in a foreign-language. He has

:14:20.:14:24.

sold 2000 copies already, but entering the world of business has

:14:25.:14:28.

been a steep learning curve. As a languages graduate and linguistics

:14:29.:14:35.

literature graduate, we didn't know about entrepreneurship and starting

:14:36.:14:39.

a business. That has been a huge learning curve. The thing that helps

:14:40.:14:43.

the most, we have found, is having people around you who can guide,

:14:44.:14:47.

mental and support you. The local MP is putting on a master class for

:14:48.:14:52.

local entrepreneurs. Have been better businesses to become bigger.

:14:53.:14:56.

I think it is important that Bedford focuses on small businesses. I also

:14:57.:15:00.

think that Government should focus on it. We have seen big businesses

:15:01.:15:05.

getting away with murder. It is our small businesses, truthfully, that

:15:06.:15:09.

create new products and innovations as much as large companies. There is

:15:10.:15:18.

no doubt that Bedford is an entrepreneurial time. You are 20%

:15:19.:15:22.

more likely than you are here as in the rest of the UK. Look here, not

:15:23.:15:28.

packed full of chain stores. In fact, almost every single shot is a

:15:29.:15:34.

small, independent business. Zak will be speaking at tonight's

:15:35.:15:42.

conference. His business started in Bedford, in a year he has gone from

:15:43.:15:46.

four shops in this region to 14 runs the country. For him, it is no

:15:47.:15:55.

surprise that Bedford is a Oundle for entrepreneurs. There is a blot

:15:56.:15:58.

of entrepreneurial people in Bedford, it is underestimated, there

:15:59.:16:01.

is support on offer if people look for it. You make things happen.

:16:02.:16:07.

People think there is not a lot going on here, there is more in

:16:08.:16:10.

London and Milton Keynes, but when you haven't got those opportunities,

:16:11.:16:16.

you have to make them happen. Alex's businesses still small. He had a

:16:17.:16:20.

shipping himself. But he hoped some of the tapes he learns that the

:16:21.:16:25.

conference tonight will help him to succeed and be another Bedford

:16:26.:16:30.

success story. -- handles shipping himself. That conference has got

:16:31.:16:36.

under way. If we take a peek through to the conference, we can see a

:16:37.:16:40.

packed audience and the former Chief Executive of John Lewis, Andy

:16:41.:16:46.

Street, is there. I spoke to him and asked him for his advice a short

:16:47.:16:48.

time ago. The lesson from John Lewis,

:16:49.:16:49.

of course, that's a big business. Many of the businesses

:16:50.:16:53.

here tonight a relatively small businesses, but

:16:54.:16:55.

the It's quite simply, to be

:16:56.:16:56.

successful, you must Be obsessed with what

:16:57.:17:00.

they want, make sure you understand how their needs

:17:01.:17:08.

are changing, and deliver them. It is not important

:17:09.:17:11.

what you want to do, bluntly put, what you want

:17:12.:17:13.

is what they are after. If you get that, you

:17:14.:17:15.

will be successful. Everyone here tonight

:17:16.:17:17.

is either running a small business or thinking

:17:18.:17:20.

of running a small business. Why do you think people

:17:21.:17:22.

should be thinking about I guess the obvious answer,

:17:23.:17:25.

it gives you control. It enables you to do

:17:26.:17:32.

what you really want. Some people enjoy

:17:33.:17:35.

being part of a big organisation, but I reckon a huge

:17:36.:17:38.

proportion of people actually love seeing an idea that they have,

:17:39.:17:41.

opportunity to hear from the Chief Executive of TalkTalk. Everyone who

:19:02.:19:04.

has put this together and hope this will boost the entrepreneurial

:19:05.:19:06.

culture in Bedford. Sport now - and you've heard

:19:07.:19:09.

of the Tour de France - there's also a Tour of Britain -

:19:10.:19:12.

now there's the Tour of Suffolk - and it presents a huge challenge

:19:13.:19:15.

for one Stansted man. Shaun Whiter lost both of his legs

:19:16.:19:17.

in an accident last year - until then, he was a promising

:19:18.:19:22.

amateur footballer. Well, the Tour of Suffolk

before I went to a wedding. Yeah, I am more than

:20:00.:20:02.

capable of doing it. Former Newmarket town footballer

:20:03.:20:04.

Shaun Whiter will also take part. Using a specially

with prosthetics. He will take on the challenge

using just his arms. I want to get out there,

was in the air ambulance. It's a message to all of us,

:20:47.:20:50.

I think is he's got guts. It makes you very humble to see

:20:51.:20:54.

what he is going to do. 150 miles around Suffolk is pretty

hard, just pedalling with your arms. On the pitch, the club are calling

for supporters to stay patient despite Tuesday's FA

Cup humiliation. There is a growing sense among fans

that a change is needed. The manager's clearly

for next season, too. Yeah, they will be

but chess player Jaden Jermy has won the chance to try out

:21:55.:21:57.

for the England squad. After an appearance

:21:58.:21:59.

at the London Chess Championship earlier this month he secured

:22:00.:22:01.

a recognition for exceptional play. We sent Robby West down

:22:02.:22:03.

to his school to give him a game... He is just 12 years old, but she is

:22:04.:22:13.

the one to beat. He was at the Chester Jets, testing himself

:22:14.:22:16.

against the world's best players. It was a very good turn on, with three

:22:17.:22:24.

wins and four draws and one loss. His performance in the tenements has

led to him being invited to check the low train with the England share

squad. I wanted to find out how good he really is. He destroyed me in 20

:22:37.:22:44.

moves. He taught himself how to play chess by watching YouTube videos. He

chess into a career. And what a travel the world playing chess.

Hopefully, I can become one of the best in the world. These dreams have

a real possibility of coming true. Whilst it is not a new phenomenon,

wonderful friendships and has support, and knows that it is OK to

be unique. How does that feel as a mother? It is wonderful to see your
