Hello and welcome to Look East. Our top story tonight:

:00:00.:00:00.

The hospital patient who made the news last week

:00:07.:00:08.

after being evicted from his hospital bed

:00:09.:00:10.

speaks for the first time about HIS side of the story.

:00:11.:00:30.

If I could walk, if someone needed a bed, I would stay on the floor.

:00:31.:00:34.

A widow from Suffolk describes the chilling moment

:00:35.:00:36.

as a gunman massacred holidaymakers on a beach in Tunisia.

:00:37.:00:39.

I thought my best chance was to play dead.

:00:40.:00:53.

The Duchess of Cambridge gives a boost to a children's charity.

:00:54.:01:02.

And the school pupils who played a starring role

:01:03.:01:05.

The NHS patient who refused to leave his hospital bed for two

:01:06.:01:22.

years has today been giving his side of the story.

:01:23.:01:28.

Adriano Guedes was admitted to the James Paget Hospital

:01:29.:01:33.

But once he recovered, he refused to leave.

:01:34.:01:36.

But this year, the NHS got a court order to evict him.

:01:37.:01:39.

Mr Guedes is Portuguese but has lived here for 15 years.

:01:40.:01:41.

He's now spoken for the first time about why he effectively blocked

:01:42.:01:44.

The James Paget says he was made repeated offers of accommodation,

:01:45.:01:48.

This exclusive report is from Debbie Tubby.

:01:49.:01:52.

is paralysed from the chest down, he can't move from this bed.

:01:53.:01:59.

He spends his day locked in a council flat in Suffolk.

:02:00.:02:02.

Nothing personal, but I don't want to be isolated.

:02:03.:02:29.

Having carers just two trains use three or four times a day is not a

:02:30.:02:33.

life. It is like being in prison. meant he lost the use

:02:34.:02:40.

of his arm and legs. He says he was admitted to

:02:41.:02:48.

the James Paget hospital in Aug 2014 for mental health

:02:49.:02:51.

not medical reasons. Did you want to stay in the

:02:52.:03:03.

hospital? At the beginning, I went on hunger strike. I wanted to stop

:03:04.:03:08.

my life. What is it you wanted to be given to leave the hospital? Of

:03:09.:03:17.

wheelchair because I need it. A place that was wheelchair friendly.

:03:18.:03:26.

It has cost nearly ?300,000 for you to stay in the hospital which you

:03:27.:03:30.

say you didn't want to be in. Someone else could have used that

:03:31.:03:40.

bed. I feel very bad. It's very bad to occupy a place that should be

:03:41.:03:46.

with someone in need. But, at the same time, I didn't cause the

:03:47.:03:51.

situation. If I can't move, if I can walk, I would have left the hospital

:03:52.:03:59.

by my own means. Do you feel guilty that someone else could've used that

:04:00.:04:01.

bed? Not guilty. I feel pity. and other agencies have

:04:02.:04:08.

repeatedly offered him care In December the hospital

:04:09.:04:12.

went to court. If you assault someone, who cannot

:04:13.:04:28.

defend themselves, it is one thing. But when you abuse are disabled, it

:04:29.:04:31.

is something else. the 63 year old is on

:04:32.:04:38.

hunger strike again. I have not eaten. I am waiting for a

:04:39.:04:56.

way out. Either things work out or I passed away.

:04:57.:05:01.

The James Paget Hospital says it HAS acted compassionately

:05:02.:05:03.

Adriano Guedes says he doesn't want to rely on benefits.

:05:04.:05:07.

He just wants to live independently with the help of carers.

:05:08.:05:09.

You are in his home. How did he seem to you? Adriano Guedes is not the

:05:10.:05:18.

easiest of people to get on with. He has refused accommodation a lot of

:05:19.:05:22.

people would have accepted. You can't help but be moved by his story

:05:23.:05:28.

and where he is living. He can move out of his bed. His neighbours don't

:05:29.:05:35.

know he is there. Is on the visitors he sees our carers who turn up four

:05:36.:05:38.

times a day. He has no complaints about those carers. He has no

:05:39.:05:43.

television, no radio, and the only communication he has to the outside

:05:44.:05:48.

world is with a basic mobile phone. He didn't even know the cold to his

:05:49.:05:53.

flat, so it was difficult for us to get in to see him. When he was

:05:54.:06:00.

evicted from the hospital on ten January, he refused to go inside the

:06:01.:06:04.

flat and sat outside for seven hours in the cold until a paramedic and

:06:05.:06:08.

the neighbour persuaded him to go when. He knows it will be very

:06:09.:06:15.

difficult to get out again. The James Paget Hospital has added,

:06:16.:06:21.

detailed planning took place to achieve his safe discharge from

:06:22.:06:26.

hospital. Suffolk County Council now looks after his care in the

:06:27.:06:29.

community and say they will continue to work with partners and Adriano

:06:30.:06:35.

Guedes to ensure he continues to receive appropriate levels of care

:06:36.:06:37.

and support. Thank you. A coroner was told today that

:06:38.:06:42.

a holidaymaker from Suffolk as a gunman opened fire

:06:43.:06:44.

on a beach in Tunisia. Allison Heathcote who

lives in Felixstowe Her husband Philip was one of 38

:06:55.:06:56.

people who were shot dead. Our chief reporter Kim Riley

:06:57.:07:06.

has sent this In a written statement to the court,

:07:07.:07:18.

she told of her pure fear as events unfolded. As the gunman brought

:07:19.:07:24.

terror to the intellect beach, she heard gunshots in rapid succession.

:07:25.:07:29.

The Metropolitan Police have recorded where all of those who died

:07:30.:07:36.

were located. She says she was aware of being shot in the upper arm and

:07:37.:07:41.

felt the sharp stinging pain. Are not aware of the full extent of her

:07:42.:07:45.

injuries. She and realised she had been shot in the abdomen. She

:07:46.:07:49.

received five shots in all. The gunshots were getting closer, she

:07:50.:07:56.

said. I was feeling for my wife and lay still in the sand. I thought my

:07:57.:08:00.

best chance was to play dead. I asked my husband if he was all

:08:01.:08:08.

right. There was no response. I realised he had not made it. His

:08:09.:08:15.

body was flown home by the RAF. Alison had critical injuries. She

:08:16.:08:21.

was carried off the beach to be rushed to hospital. She spent three

:08:22.:08:29.

weeks in an induced coma. Months more after that. It took a long time

:08:30.:08:36.

to process it. When we started to do the funeral, it started to hit home.

:08:37.:08:42.

Since then, good days and bad days. You just have to go with it. She

:08:43.:08:46.

told the inquest her husband shared her love of cricket and had been a

:08:47.:08:53.

huge Manchester United fan. A straightforward, honest man, taken

:08:54.:08:59.

from her on holiday to celebrate 30 happy years of marriage.

:09:00.:09:04.

are on course for a rise of more than ?50

:09:05.:09:11.

to cover the soaring cost of adult social care.

:09:12.:09:13.

gave the go ahead for the increase this afternoon.

:09:14.:09:17.

Our political reporter Vikki Irwin was at the meeting.

:09:18.:09:21.

Quite a few papers to get through this afternoon at the Cabinet

:09:22.:09:29.

meeting. They agreed ?480 million worth of cuts. In that, they have

:09:30.:09:34.

said ?30 million of savings must be made. ?8.5 million will have to come

:09:35.:09:41.

from reserves. Council tax will increase by 3%. The council

:09:42.:09:50.

responsible for financing told a meeting that the council where

:09:51.:09:56.

prioritising children and young People's services, also adult social

:09:57.:10:01.

care. The Labour opposition said they would not be speaking against

:10:02.:10:05.

the increase in the council tax, but he said he wanted them to dig deeper

:10:06.:10:11.

into the pockets of the reserves and ultimately central government needed

:10:12.:10:17.

to fund local government properly. Will this be enough to cover future

:10:18.:10:25.

care? Households in Suffolk will be looking at about ?56 extra on their

:10:26.:10:30.

bill. That will boost cough here by ?8.5 million. Of the adult social

:10:31.:10:35.

care department is also facing ?6 million worth of cuts. It is going

:10:36.:10:40.

to face a really difficult time in the year, with increasing pressures

:10:41.:10:44.

and an ageing population. Thank you. An HGV driver has been convicted

:10:45.:10:47.

of using his mobile phone Magistrates in Ipswich heard how

:10:48.:10:50.

he was spotted driving erratically. The conviction comes

:10:51.:10:54.

during a campaign to get motorists Professional HGV driver from

:10:55.:11:08.

Peterborough arriving at court. Magistrates heard how he was pulled

:11:09.:11:13.

over on the A14 in June last year after a police officer spotted his

:11:14.:11:17.

lorry swerving across lanes. Sergeant Barry Abbott said he saw

:11:18.:11:24.

the driver with a mobile phone in his hand and the phone screen was

:11:25.:11:29.

on. He addressed the court through a polish interpreter. He told

:11:30.:11:32.

magistrates he was innocent and the reason he veered between lanes was

:11:33.:11:38.

because there were ruts worn into the road he was having to follow. He

:11:39.:11:43.

said it would have been impossible for the Sergeant to see inside his

:11:44.:11:52.

cab and he had a printout proving he was not using his phone. Of

:11:53.:11:56.

magistrates found the Sergeant guilty. He was ordered to pay a

:11:57.:12:10.

fine, costs and was given three penalty points. If driving is your

:12:11.:12:16.

livelihood, you should be aware of the risks. He will have seen the

:12:17.:12:24.

consequences of mobile phone usage throughout his professional career.

:12:25.:12:28.

It is very shocking. What message would you give to drivers? Don't use

:12:29.:12:39.

your mobile phone. Avoid temptation. Out of arms reach. That call can

:12:40.:12:45.

wait. You need to drive and the right. This latest conviction

:12:46.:12:49.

coincides with a national safety campaign. From this year, the final

:12:50.:13:02.

payable and points penalty will double.

:13:03.:13:10.

Centre Parcs is dealing with a possible outbreak of the Norovirus.

:13:11.:13:13.

A higher than normal level of sickness was noticed.

:13:14.:13:17.

It was about 2 percent of their guests.

:13:18.:13:19.

Managers have increased cleaning rounds,

:13:20.:13:21.

During the weekend break that started last Friday,

:13:22.:13:39.

The Lord Chancellor says she will visit Chelmsford Prison -

:13:40.:13:42.

following the suicide of a man who was mentally ill.

:13:43.:13:44.

An inquest jury found that Dean Saunders had been 'let down'

:13:45.:13:48.

The Prison Ombudsman says staff "did too little to protect" him.

:13:49.:13:56.

You're watching Look East with Stewart and me.

:13:57.:13:57.

Coming up next, the Duchess of Cambridge on a fund-raising drive

:13:58.:14:00.

The regional weather is staying very cold -

:14:01.:14:03.

And, the starring role played by pupils at a school in Suffolk

:14:04.:14:11.

The Duchess of Cambridge was in Norfolk today.

:14:12.:14:15.

Supporting a charity which provides hospice care for chidlren with life

:14:16.:14:18.

The East Anglia Children's Hospice looks after 750 young

:14:19.:14:21.

And is spear-heading a fund-raising appeal to build

:14:22.:14:25.

Today, she met children and their families at the charity's

:14:26.:14:30.

Four year old Nell Cork presents the Duchess of Cambridge with a posy

:14:31.:14:34.

Her family one of the many who have received care

:14:35.:14:38.

This was Nell's five year old brother Finnbar in November 2015.

:14:39.:14:44.

Four months later he'd been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

:14:45.:14:48.

He was a lovely five-year-old boy. He loved riding his bike, Star Wars,

:14:49.:15:02.

friends and going to school. It was only really this time last year when

:15:03.:15:08.

he was in hospital that we knew he wasn't well. It progressed very

:15:09.:15:17.

quickly. It was difficult to get out of bed some mornings. You have too,

:15:18.:15:22.

especially when we have other children to look after.

:15:23.:15:27.

The Duchess of Cambridge was at Quidenham as a

:15:28.:15:29.

But for the families she was also here as a mother.

:15:30.:15:35.

Listening to their stories. But she also shared the fun side of life. My

:15:36.:15:42.

daughter asked her what it was like to be a princess. She said she got

:15:43.:15:46.

looked after very well by her husband. She said her children like

:15:47.:15:55.

to run off in different directions, so it must be very hard work to have

:15:56.:16:02.

four. You can see she genuinely cared. Two years ago, an appeal was

:16:03.:16:12.

launched. This site is limited in size and accessibility and they

:16:13.:16:16.

cannot expand to cope with increased demand. There is no hydro pool here,

:16:17.:16:24.

which is something which has benefited her. But travelling to

:16:25.:16:30.

Cambridge is too long journey. With the new hospice, that is something

:16:31.:16:36.

they will have. The quality of care here is first-class. But that is in

:16:37.:16:45.

spite of the building, not because of that. We will be able to provide

:16:46.:16:48.

much more planning new hospice is built. The fundraising is now

:16:49.:17:00.

halfway. In the meantime, the care and support and giggles will go on.

:17:01.:17:07.

The Chelsea Flower Show is used to staging all sorts of weird

:17:08.:17:10.

Well, this year, they are planning an eye-catching attraction.

:17:11.:17:13.

To draw attention to the plight of neglected horses.

:17:14.:17:16.

So how do you tell the story of the work of a charity?

:17:17.:17:22.

The Norfolk based World Horse Welfare organisation?

:17:23.:17:27.

It started with Clippy who was left abandoned outside

:17:28.:17:38.

His suffering unnoticed until he was rescued.

:17:39.:17:41.

Clippy's story has been transferred to the drawing board and will soon

:17:42.:17:46.

take pride of place at the world's most prestigious flower show.

:17:47.:17:52.

The idea for this is to show how animals can be rescued and re-homed.

:17:53.:18:03.

This is the area that shows where animals are forgotten about. Then we

:18:04.:18:10.

move into an area which is open to the sky and the sun.

:18:11.:18:17.

It's all thanks to a donation from a supporter of Snetterton based

:18:18.:18:20.

The charity, which is celebrating its 90th birthday,

:18:21.:18:24.

Hopefully this will attract more people to come and find out about

:18:25.:18:35.

the work of the charity. Increasingly, charities are teaming

:18:36.:18:41.

up with sponsors and garden designers to promote their cause at

:18:42.:18:46.

the Chelsea flower show. It is an international stage.

:18:47.:18:51.

With a host of gold medals from Chelsea behind them,

:18:52.:18:53.

Jonathan and Adam have a special affection for their latest garden,

:18:54.:18:56.

almost all of its 800 plants sourced from a nursery in Norfolk.

:18:57.:18:59.

This is about getting people to reflect on the importance of

:19:00.:19:05.

charities. And helping animals. If they can get more supporters to

:19:06.:19:09.

enable them to do so, that has got to be a good thing.

:19:10.:19:14.

While Clippy is nursed back to health,

:19:15.:19:15.

the hope is this garden should ensure that will horses like him,

:19:16.:19:18.

This week, the town of Milton Keynes is celebrating its 50th birthday.

:19:19.:19:25.

What started off as a group of villages in rural Buckinghamshire

:19:26.:19:28.

is now one of our fastest growing towns.

:19:29.:19:33.

It also takes its art very seriously.

:19:34.:19:37.

And it's hoping to become a European Capital of Culture.

:19:38.:19:39.

Louise Hubball has been on a cultural tour of Milton Keynes.

:19:40.:19:50.

Around the many corners of Milton Keynes

:19:51.:19:52.

you will find public statues fluid sculptures.

:19:53.:19:54.

like this horse standing outside a bank with the same logo.

:19:55.:19:59.

This shopping centre installation celebrates this accessible art that

:20:00.:20:02.

has always been at the heart of the town.

:20:03.:20:05.

the idea is for you to go out and find the originals yourself.

:20:06.:20:11.

I think art is always about thinking about what will come next. How can

:20:12.:20:22.

you construct a space which will work 50 years from now or 100 years?

:20:23.:20:31.

It makes sense to integrate art into the urban fabric. Over the years,

:20:32.:20:40.

there has been far more going on in the art scene than just these

:20:41.:20:42.

brutalist beasts. In 1988 roads were closed

:20:43.:20:50.

when Michael Jackson performed here. MK Bowl bathing in the heyday

:20:51.:20:52.

of stadium tours. Sir John Dankworth and

:20:53.:20:54.

Dame Cleo Laine founded A melting pot for

:20:55.:20:58.

all types of music. But they had no idea Milton Keynes

:20:59.:21:01.

was about to be developed My father really grew to love Milton

:21:22.:21:26.

venue. Stadium MK is also developing

:21:27.:21:27.

as a concert venue, theatre is thriving,

:21:28.:21:33.

and MK Gallery is undergoing They have decided to bid for

:21:34.:21:45.

European capital of culture in 2023. No-one would have expected that of

:21:46.:21:51.

Milton Keynes years ago. But I think it demonstrates the energy and

:21:52.:21:52.

activities that you see today. So the concrete cows may be living

:21:53.:21:57.

out their retirement But the success and vitality

:21:58.:21:59.

of the arts scene here A glance at the download

quite similar, really. Castle on the Hill

who would just jell naturally. Because we are all such

and people recognised us But it is quite a cool

:24:25.:24:29.

thing to think about. Gives us something

:24:30.:24:34.

awesome to look back on. Castle on the Hill will put

Framlingham on the map It's a love song for Suffolk,

going out to an audience worldwide. A lot of proud parents watching

this. Also seeing, I didn't know you smoked! Just on film, I hope!

:25:09.:25:15.

Here are some photographs. Another taken in Grantchester in Cambridge.

:25:16.:25:28.

Lots of bright blue sky today once the fog lifted. We start to get more

:25:29.:25:37.

widespread fog again this evening. Likely to cause some travel

:25:38.:25:42.

disruption. Freezing fog patches will become more widespread as we go

:25:43.:25:50.

through the night. A risk of ice on untreated surfaces. We start the

:25:51.:25:58.

evening on a dry zero. The fog will become a problem as we go through

:25:59.:26:05.

the evening. Quite extensive by the end of the night. Temperatures below

:26:06.:26:10.

freezing. Down to around -2 in many places. This is likely to lift into

:26:11.:26:20.

low-level cloud tomorrow. High-pressure keeping are relatively

:26:21.:26:26.

settled. Tomorrow is likely to be more cloudy than today. Fog patches

:26:27.:26:30.
