Welcome to the programme. The headlines - warning from the mother

of a murder victim. She says the fight Against guns and gangs will

be badly hit by police cuts. Because of funding cuts, a lot of

that's been given today clearly reflects how serious we take this

from the mother of a murder victim who has become a high-profile

campaign in the fight against crime. After years of steady progress, she

:01:17.:01:21.

believes that cuts in police could lead to a setback, with an increase

:01:21.:01:24.

in antisocial behaviour and gang culture. Marcia Shakespeare, whose

:01:24.:01:28.

daughter was shot dead eight years ago, they as the focus on fighting

street crime may be lost, as youth projects are cut along with some

frontline police teams. We have this exclusive report. You're 80

schoolchildren getting to grips with the harsh facts of life. --

:01:47.:01:51.

you're eight. The lesson on violent crime. Which one of these is real,

:01:51.:01:57.

which is a ball-bearing done? guesses? Holds school in Lozells is

:01:57.:02:02.

in brand new premises. Set in the heart of Birmingham skunk and gang

:02:02.:02:06.

area, the school has turned around and seen a big improvement in

:02:06.:02:10.

discipline and exam results. A lesson before the summer break was

:02:10.:02:15.

that everyone has choices. There's always an inclusive instances

:02:15.:02:19.

involving young people for round antisocial behaviour in the summer

:02:19.:02:23.

holidays. But the kids are fully aware of the implications of taking

:02:24.:02:29.

toy guns and BB guns out to the parks. She had a fatal gunshot

:02:29.:02:33.

wound which went straight through her heart. Leading from the front

:02:33.:02:38.

is Marcia Shakespeare. In 2003, her daughter, Letitia, and her best

:02:38.:02:43.

friend, Charlene Ellis, were killed in a spree of machine gun fire.

:02:43.:02:49.

Innocent murder victims caught in the crossfire of gang warfare.

:02:49.:02:52.

kids go from one year to another and new children come in, they

:02:52.:02:57.

should be equipped and educated in the curriculum around a violent

:02:57.:03:02.

crime, because this is what we live in. Holt's school has changed, so

:03:02.:03:07.

has this area. Crime has fallen but 10 years ago street robberies were

:03:07.:03:12.

on the rise. �1 million was spent on summer activities for youngsters.

:03:12.:03:18.

Crime fell by 50 %. At the same time it was decided to place

:03:18.:03:22.

dedicated police officers in schools, working directly with

:03:22.:03:25.

teachers and young people. This school had its own police officer

:03:25.:03:30.

along with many others. For the last 12 months, all of those police

:03:30.:03:34.

officers have been returned to normal duties. Senior teachers are

:03:34.:03:39.

warning that could impact on the impact -- fight against antisocial

:03:39.:03:44.

behaviour. Taking that away has been unfortunate. Certainly the

:03:45.:03:49.

reduction in street crime, robbery and youth crime was a really

:03:49.:03:57.

positive effect. It remains to be seen how that change will be. We

:03:57.:04:00.

felt the difference in terms of contact and regular communication

:04:00.:04:03.

with the police since the police officers were taken from the

:04:03.:04:06.

schools. I think that's common across any schools that have had a

:04:06.:04:10.

police officer. Yet the police say they haven't given up their

:04:10.:04:13.

commitment to schools. Officers spending time in schools are still

:04:14.:04:17.

an important part of what we do. Only this morning I received an e-

:04:17.:04:20.

mail from a local headteacher thanking me for some work my

:04:20.:04:24.

officers did at a primary school. Engaging with young people,

:04:24.:04:27.

diverting them from crime and antisocial behaviour remains really

:04:27.:04:32.

important to us. Marcia Shakespeare fears that all the games of the

:04:32.:04:37.

last decade could be lost in the race to cut budgets. When Letitia

:04:37.:04:43.

and Charlene were killed, it was bad then and it was a turning point

:04:43.:04:46.

for Birmingham. That turning point needs to stop at the point where it

:04:47.:04:52.

is and not be lost through lack of funding and resources.

:04:52.:04:57.

youngsters left for the holidays, many adults were asking - what will

:04:57.:05:07.
:05:07.:05:08.

be done to keep them occupied and The Home Secretary, Theresa May,

:05:08.:05:11.

has been in Birmingham today to hear about a new crime unit. Our

:05:12.:05:16.

reporter put it to her that the government was failing communities

:05:16.:05:19.

over Cats which will lead to the removal of designated police

:05:19.:05:29.
:05:29.:05:29.

officers from schools. They are not failing local communities. Of

:05:29.:05:32.

course there are operational decisions which will be taken at

:05:32.:05:35.

local level as to how budget cuts are going to operate and be put

:05:35.:05:40.

through. But we recognise the impact that the issues around gangs

:05:40.:05:43.

and the use of knives by young people has in the West Midlands.

:05:43.:05:46.

That's one of the reasons why West Midlands is one of the three areas

:05:46.:05:49.

we identified from the centre that we should put some extra funding

:05:49.:05:54.

into, to deal with this particular issue. So we are supporting

:05:54.:05:58.

activity taking place locally in relation to that. With respect,

:05:58.:06:01.

these officers have been doing a good job in schools and have shown

:06:01.:06:04.

to make a real difference with crime and how young people are

:06:04.:06:09.

recruited into gangs. They are now going to be removed. Explain that

:06:09.:06:13.

to repair and of how that's going to make a positive impact.

:06:13.:06:17.

decision... The decision of how officers are used locally must be

:06:17.:06:21.

taken at the local level. It's not right for me in Westminster to say

:06:21.:06:24.

to West Midlands, this is how you should deploy your forces. That is

:06:24.:06:28.

what they must do. Yes, there are challenging budget cuts. We accept

:06:28.:06:34.

that, we have to do that because we are facing the biggest peacetime

:06:34.:06:41.

deficit in history. There is a lot of concern in your report about

:06:41.:06:44.

young people, what's available for them this summer and how crime

:06:45.:06:50.

might rise. How important is that? By the risk of sounding corny,

:06:50.:06:54.

teenagers are our future. They are important. For years, the

:06:55.:06:58.

authorities have been trumpeting to me just how special Birmingham is

:06:58.:07:03.

and just how much they've achieved. Yet on our programme tonight, the

:07:03.:07:07.

woman who is the figurehead of all that success, with gang related

:07:07.:07:13.

murders coming down from 27 in one year down to one, she is actually

:07:13.:07:17.

saying you are putting this legacy at risk. It's very important.

:07:17.:07:22.

our councils have to save money, so what's the alternative? They do.

:07:22.:07:25.

The Home Secretary there is painting the stark reality of why

:07:25.:07:31.

we need to make these savings. At the same time, I've been talking to

:07:31.:07:36.

educators who have said a few years ago that they are putting on

:07:36.:07:40.

special projects for 1000 youths, and they have �300,000 to do that.

:07:40.:07:45.

This year they've just got 30,000. Isn't it a bit simplistic to say

:07:46.:07:50.

that having something to do for the teenagers will cut crime? It is,

:07:50.:07:53.

but often if the right funds are channelled to the right people,

:07:53.:07:59.

then that is what works. It diverts people away. To use that old phrase,

:07:59.:08:03.

the Devil finds work for idle hands, people are saying that unless you

:08:03.:08:08.

really engage with teenagers, what then happens is you create a vacuum

:08:08.:08:14.

and the drug dealers and gang members move in to fill it. Have

:08:14.:08:18.

you been affected by a antisocial behaviour, are you concerned about

:08:18.:08:23.

the impact of cuts on services for young people? If so, we'd like to

:08:23.:08:33.
:08:33.:08:39.

hear from you. The contact details Later, as the famine crisis in

:08:39.:08:43.

Africa deepens, we meet the Somali and community in Birmingham trying

:08:43.:08:50.

to help. And there's great news for English apple lovers. The season

:08:50.:08:53.

has arrived weeks early. I'll be at an orchard where the harvest is

:08:53.:09:03.
:09:03.:09:06.

A man has been jailed for four years after pleading guilty to

:09:06.:09:13.

recklessly infecting his partner with HIV. 44-year-old Nkosinati

:09:13.:09:16.

Mabanda knew he was HIV-positive but didn't tell his girlfriend. She

:09:16.:09:20.

only found out he had the virus after finding a text message from

:09:20.:09:25.

his secret fiancee. Speaking after the case, police said what was most

:09:25.:09:28.

disturbing was his blase attitude towards his victim and various

:09:28.:09:34.

other partners. We have been speaking to his former partner.

:09:34.:09:38.

He's just an animal. He has deserved everything he's got today.

:09:38.:09:41.

When this woman started a relationship with Nkosinati Mabanda,

:09:41.:09:46.

she had no idea he was HIV-positive. She only discovered by finding a

:09:46.:09:52.

text message from his secret fiancee on his mobile phone.

:09:52.:09:56.

couldn't see no reason why he had and said nothing because we have

:09:56.:10:06.
:10:06.:10:08.

spoken about it anyway. He said, no, going be tested, he's HIV-positive.

:10:08.:10:12.

Nkosinati Mabanda was arrested in 2009 after his victim went to the

:10:12.:10:16.

police. Investigations discovered that after he arrived from

:10:16.:10:20.

Zimbabwean 2004, he had had unprotected sex with nine women

:10:20.:10:24.

minus seven of them also have no idea he had the virus. In court,

:10:24.:10:28.

the judge told Nkosinati Mabanda this was as bad as it gets, as far

:10:28.:10:32.

as this type of cases concerned. You took the decision, he said, not

:10:33.:10:37.

to tell her, and it was her right to know. She's been devastated and

:10:37.:10:41.

her life has been changed permanently. He went on to say that

:10:41.:10:46.

Nkosinati Mabanda was a very real danger to women in the future.

:10:46.:10:50.

the sentence the judge has given out today, it shows the seriousness

:10:50.:10:55.

in which the criminal justice system has taken this case. We have

:10:55.:11:00.

to take the bravery of the victim, to actually come forward and

:11:00.:11:04.

notified the police of this. Otherwise we might never have known.

:11:04.:11:08.

Today, Nkosinati Mabanda was jailed for four years. The judge said a

:11:08.:11:12.

transcript of the sentencing would be sent to the Secretary of State

:11:12.:11:19.

to consider deportation on his release from prison. We are joined

:11:19.:11:23.

now by Lisa Power, from the Terrence Higgins Trust, the largest

:11:23.:11:30.

HIV and sexual health charity in the UK. An horrific situation there.

:11:30.:11:34.

How common are these kinds of cases? It's extremely important

:11:34.:11:38.

that people should realise that although most people with HIV try

:11:38.:11:42.

very hard not to pass the virus on, for some people it is very

:11:42.:11:46.

difficult. They don't know how to tell people or they shy away from

:11:46.:11:50.

it. For one in four people with HIV in the UK, they can't possibly tell

:11:50.:11:53.

their partner because they don't know themselves, they haven't been

:11:53.:11:57.

tested yet. It's up to all of us to look after our sexual health in

:11:57.:12:02.

these situations. If someone lies to you about their HIV status, it's

:12:02.:12:06.

very difficult to protect yourself, isn't it? Clearly, if someone

:12:06.:12:10.

actually lies about their status then you are N8 difficult position.

:12:10.:12:13.

What we often say to people is, if you are in a relationship and are

:12:13.:12:17.

thinking of giving up condoms, go down to the clinic together and get

:12:17.:12:20.

tested together. That way you both know where you are starting off

:12:20.:12:24.

from. It's a difficult thing to do when you are in a relationship at

:12:24.:12:28.

first, you are hardly going to save, let's go down to the sexual health

:12:28.:12:33.

clinic for our first date. It is difficult. In early dates most

:12:33.:12:37.

people do still use condoms. But what I would emphasise his we have

:12:37.:12:41.

a society where it's actually easier to have sex and talk about

:12:41.:12:45.

it. That's the wrong way round. Actually, for everyone's sake, your

:12:46.:12:49.

own and your partner's, you are much better off having a chat at

:12:49.:12:52.

some early. And getting these things clear and making sure that

:12:52.:12:56.

both you and your partner are safe. There are a lot of people with HIV

:12:56.:13:00.

who haven't tested yet. So we do encourage anyone has been at risk

:13:00.:13:10.
:13:10.:13:11.

If you've got any questions about HIV or AIDS, you can call the

:13:11.:13:21.

Terrence Higgins Trust. The number Two charities have warned the

:13:23.:13:27.

impact of cuts to the benefits system could take up to �70 million

:13:27.:13:33.

a year out of Stoke-on-Trent's economy. A report by the Citizens

:13:33.:13:36.

Advice Bureau and Brighter Futures predicts changes will lead to

:13:36.:13:39.

increased homelessness. The Government has said its Welfare

:13:39.:13:43.

Reform Bill will be fairer than the current system and help more people

:13:43.:13:49.

into work. Clare Milner is 18 and rents a one-

:13:49.:13:53.

bedroom flat in Stoke-on-Trent. Changes in her housing benefit

:13:53.:13:59.

means she is now rethinking plans to study A-levels. People like me,

:13:59.:14:02.

and I have loads of friends in the same situation, they are having to

:14:02.:14:07.

give up their dreams of going to college to get a full-time job to

:14:07.:14:10.

be able to support themselves. There is nothing they can do about

:14:10.:14:16.

it. Stoke-on-Trent is not unique, according to the Office of this

:14:16.:14:19.

report, but they say there are social and economic factors which

:14:19.:14:26.

mean it could be affected more harshly than other cities. Wages in

:14:26.:14:31.

Stoke-on-Trent are almost 10% below the national average. The labour

:14:31.:14:38.

market here has contracted by 3.6% in the last year, compared to 1.9b

:14:38.:14:43.

national. We do have health problems, and those will get worse.

:14:43.:14:47.

Homeless this will get worse. The housing market will not recover. In

:14:47.:14:53.

saving money, I think it is a very false economy. We will save money

:14:53.:14:57.

in Westminster and we will be paying for far more expensive

:14:57.:15:01.

services to deal with the results of what will happen to people.

statement, the Government said its The Government has introduced a new

sceptical. With the best will in the world, however affected the

:15:31.:15:34.

private sector is at creating jobs, it will not create enough jobs

:15:34.:15:40.

quick enough. Clare Milner is still taking stock of the impact of these

:15:40.:15:45.

changes for her, and the authors of this report hope it will be the

:15:45.:15:54.

basis for wide-ranging discussions. Police are investigating after

:15:54.:15:57.

several coaches and cars were deliberately set on fire. It

:15:57.:16:01.

happened in the early hours of this morning at a car park in the Small

:16:01.:16:05.

Heath area of Permian. Four coaches, three cars and a caravan were

:16:06.:16:10.

destroyed by the far, which spread to nearby storage sheds.

A woman has been rescued after falling down a 30 feet well in

:16:14.:16:17.

Worcestershire. It happened just before four o'clock this afternoon

:16:17.:16:21.

in the village of Abbotsford. A specialist search and rescue team

were sent to the scene at the woman was taken to hospital.

Coming up, a royal flush at Birmingham plays host to two

:16:46.:16:56.
:16:56.:16:56.

princes and a duchess. The Somali community is calling for

:16:56.:17:00.

more aid to help millions of starving people in the Horn of

Africa. A quarter of Somalia's population is being displaced as

:17:29.:17:34.

Maryan Qasim can relate to that. She has just spent seven months

:17:34.:17:37.

working as a Government minister in Mogadishu, the first time she has

:17:37.:17:47.
:17:47.:17:47.

been back to her home country for 25 years. My most beloved place

:17:47.:17:52.

when I was a child. Everything was destroyed. There is nothing I can

:17:52.:17:58.

do for all those people. Sometimes I used to see people dying out of

:17:58.:18:03.

hunger. They could not get anything to eat. I would see children in the

:18:03.:18:08.

streets, begging. Now back in Birmingham, Maryan Qasim is one of

:18:08.:18:17.

an estimated 40,000 Somali born people living in this city. Several

British Government has donated �90 million in eight so far, but the

:18:43.:18:47.

response from other countries has been criticised by Somalians living

:18:47.:18:53.

in Birmingham. There is still a huge shortfall of funds. We are

:18:53.:18:59.

thankful to the British public, and the UK Government, more needs to be

done because of the huge crisis. is a country torn apart by war, not

:19:05.:19:11.

just famine. In the long term, what many West Midlands-based Somalis

:19:11.:19:14.

want his stable Government, then maybe theirs will be a country they

:19:15.:19:23.

will want to return to. Not one, not two, but three members

:19:23.:19:25.

of the royal family were in Birmingham today. The Duchess of

:19:25.:19:28.

Cornwall, the Prince of Wales and his father all popped in on

:19:28.:19:33.

official business. In a moment, the Duke of Edinburgh at Warwickshire's

them to continue on their long recovery path. There followed a

private visit to meet military casualties. For lunch, four hampers

performance. Prince Philip took to the field, looking delighted to be

:21:49.:21:54.

here. No wonder, he has always loved his cricket. The Duke of

:21:54.:21:57.

Edinburgh is no stranger to Edgbaston. He was your 11 years ago

:21:57.:22:01.

for the official opening of the indoor cricket school. Today, he

:22:01.:22:05.

has returned for the rebirth of this famous Test match arena.

:22:05.:22:08.

During a break, he chatted with the girls about their shared passion

:22:08.:22:15.

for the game. All around, junior teams were enjoying a festival of

:22:15.:22:20.

cricket and the Prince popped inside for lunch. He congratulated

:22:20.:22:23.

us on what we had achieved and look forward to seeing our success in

the future. Will he be back for that this month -- Test match next

month? We did him -- we invited him but I think he prefers to watch it

:22:33.:22:38.

on TV. It has cost �32 million, no wonder the Prince was impressed.

:22:38.:22:43.

But some things are priceless, like this clever Cat by LEAs to help

Walmley when the under 13 lady Tavener final. -- By Louise.

:22:51.:22:54.

Probably the biggest day in their season so far. They thoroughly

:22:54.:22:57.

enjoyed it. I do not know is that they won the Duke said to them, but

:22:58.:23:01.

they were smiling. He was asking us how long we have been playing

:23:01.:23:10.

cricket. And why we love it so much. I was really nervous. No worries.

:23:10.:23:17.

The sun shone, the shield went to Walmley and the visit -- the teams

:23:17.:23:22.

gave three cheers for the royal visitors.

:23:22.:23:27.

To complete the royal round-up, the Duchess of Cornwall was presenting

:23:27.:23:29.

a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service medal at the City's

:23:29.:23:34.

Botanical Gardens. For many of us who look for to

:23:34.:23:39.

Turkey into a first English apple of the season, the harvest has

:23:39.:23:42.

arrived weeks earlier than expected. Normally we would have to wait

:23:42.:23:45.

until late August or early September. Thanks to the cold

:23:45.:23:49.

winter and the warm spring it is promising to be a great season.

:23:49.:23:53.

Cath Mackie is in an orchard for us right now. When will they start

:23:53.:24:00.

picking? Actually, I have already started!

:24:00.:24:05.

The harvest proper starts here tomorrow. Here is column Brimfield.

:24:05.:24:11.

I cannot believe it is July, it is a magnificent sight. It is very

:24:11.:24:16.

early. We have been farming here for 100 years and this is the early

:24:16.:24:21.

season by a week. We are picking Discovery apples, we picked a few

:24:21.:24:27.

of those today, and we will be picking in earnest tomorrow. That

:24:27.:24:33.

is have a quick chat with Adrian. We were saying this is good news,

:24:33.:24:38.

but is an early-season good news? Barry Davies, because we will seek

:24:38.:24:41.

English apples available to consumers for longer than has been

:24:41.:24:46.

the case for many years. And also, we are producing increasing volumes.

:24:46.:24:51.

We have seen a real renaissance in the English apple industry. Were

:24:51.:24:55.

orchards have been planted, greater production and consumers will have

:24:55.:24:59.

access to English apples run now right through until next May.

:24:59.:25:03.

there was concern, there was a frost in a will which has damaged

:25:03.:25:07.

some of the crops. Some orchards in Herefordshire have been obliterated,

:25:07.:25:11.

but fortunately, they are in a minority and the damage has been

:25:12.:25:16.

far less than anticipated. And we will get a larger crop this year.

:25:16.:25:20.

And the good news is, the English apples will be in the shops at the

:25:20.:25:26.

end of the league. -- the end of the week.

:25:26.:25:32.

See how she ripped that have all of the tree! I have been quite pleased

:25:32.:25:33.

the tree! I have been quite pleased about the weather for the last

:25:33.:25:41.

couple of days. It looks pretty decent. It has been

:25:41.:25:43.

beautiful and sunny over the weekend, it was a beautiful weekend,

:25:43.:25:48.

dry and warm. The rest of the week will stay settled. Tonight, it is

:25:48.:25:54.

mainly dry. We could see a little shower in a few spots. But that

:25:54.:25:59.

will be good for the garden. Nothing too significant. Mainly dry

:25:59.:26:07.

with clear spells. Some cloud around also. Overnight, lows of

:26:07.:26:12.

eight Celsius, fairly mild for most of us. Tomorrow, once again, we

:26:13.:26:17.

will see some sunshine, not everywhere, there will be some

:26:17.:26:22.

cloud lingering, but it will not spoil the day. It should still be

:26:22.:26:28.

fairly bright. Highs of 23 Celsius. Going into tomorrow night, once

:26:28.:26:33.

again it will be similar to tonight, clearer spells, some cloud drifting,

:26:33.:26:39.

and it will not be too cold. Another mild night with lows of ten

:26:39.:26:45.

to 14 Celsius. This week, when it is warm it will be highs of 24

:26:45.:26:51.

Celsius. Slightly cooler in the cloud, highs of just 19 Celsius. A

:26:52.:26:55.

high pressure is holding off the low pressure so we have that

:26:55.:26:58.

settled weather. There is the threat of a front moving through

:26:58.:27:02.

but we expected to be mainly dry through the rest of the week. So

:27:03.:27:04.

through the rest of the week. So calm and settled, temperatures in

:27:04.:27:10.

the low twenties. A look at tonight's main headlines:

:27:10.:27:14.

The Norwegian massacre, the self- confessed killer says he had links

:27:14.:27:19.

with two other underground cells. And a murder victim was my mother

:27:19.:27:22.

warns that cuts in policing could undo all the progress that has been

:27:22.:27:26.

done in the fight against crime. That's all from us this evening,

:27:26.:27:31.
