Hello and welcome. The headlines: wind out of the region's four bids

:00:12.:00:20.

for Finn is selected by the government. Our first goal is by

:00:20.:00:23.

2015 per grit needed 2000 jobs. Unemployment is down, but youth

:00:23.:00:28.

unemployment is still high. What hope for young people? It is scary,

:00:28.:00:34.

really. Because it is just so hard to get a job. After a scathing

:00:34.:00:39.

report into care there, a residential hospital treating

:00:39.:00:42.

disabled and mentally ill patient is to be shut down.

:00:42.:00:46.

And after the riots, shops and restaurants report a big dip in

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:01:05.

trade. One business saver lost 80% Good evening. Tonight, mixed

:01:05.:01:09.

fortunes for our region has the government names as series of new

:01:09.:01:12.

enterprise zones, with the aim of creating thousands of jobs.

:01:12.:01:16.

Hereford has been chosen as one of 11 new locations across England,

:01:16.:01:20.

but applications from Stoke-on- Trent, Coventry and could Mr have

:01:20.:01:27.

been rejected. -- Kidderminster. Local government secretary Acol

:01:27.:01:32.

Pickles defended the decision, saying and neighbouring zone in the

:01:32.:01:38.

Black Country would have benefits for Stoke.

:01:39.:01:43.

One winner, three losers, on a day of mixed economic fortunes across

:01:43.:01:48.

the West Midlands. This will be the site of the region's only new

:01:48.:01:52.

Enterprise Zone, on the outskirts of the Rotherwas industrial estate

:01:52.:01:58.

in Hereford. A huge pile of rubble will be used for the Pat --

:01:58.:02:04.

foundation of the new Business Park. Those behind the bid are predicting

:02:04.:02:10.

about 2000 new jobs by printed 15. We said this would be the biggest

:02:10.:02:12.

opportunity for her picture since the Second World War, will mean

:02:12.:02:17.

that. At the end of the completion, we could have 6000 jobs. This is

:02:17.:02:21.

wonderful news, it is what we have been looking for, because we have

:02:21.:02:28.

an ambition in this county to raise the average salary and wage from

:02:28.:02:33.

19,000 to 25,000, and this is the first step in that aim. So what are

:02:33.:02:39.

the actual benefits of being in a Finn? For a start, there are lower

:02:39.:02:44.

taxes, less regulation for planning regulations, and super-fast

:02:44.:02:49.

broadband. No such benefits for today despite losing bidders, among

:02:49.:02:53.

them, Kidderminster and Coventry, where the Enterprise Zone would

:02:53.:02:58.

have been based around the airport. We're disappointed, we put forward

:02:58.:03:04.

an excellent proposal, creation of up to 14,000 jobs, solutions to a

:03:04.:03:08.

serious high weight problem. Stoke-on-Trent, hopes had been

:03:08.:03:12.

raised when David Cameron gave his answer to one of the City's MPs

:03:12.:03:16.

earlier this month. I will certainly ask the Chancellor to

:03:16.:03:21.

look if it will be in the next lot, because we want to help the

:03:21.:03:25.

communities she represents. today, and at the news that this

:03:25.:03:31.

site in the valley will stay empty. I was astonished when I heard the

:03:31.:03:37.

news, not long ago we had the Prime Minister here, promised in that we

:03:37.:03:43.

would get an Enterprise Zone, and this announcement has sneaked out

:03:43.:03:46.

that we haven't got it, it is just incredible. It is really

:03:46.:03:50.

disappointing. Particularly disappointing given previous

:03:50.:03:54.

comment from the current government about how they might support the

:03:54.:04:00.

North Staffordshire area. Overall, from today's announcements, mixed

:04:00.:04:03.

emotions. Hereford alone with cause to celebrate. The losing bidders

:04:03.:04:08.

can only contemplate what might have been.

:04:08.:04:14.

Our political editor joins us now. Let's start with what really is a

:04:14.:04:17.

disappointment in Coventry, Stoke- on-Trent and Kidderminster. All

:04:17.:04:21.

places that have had to jobs problems and could have done with a

:04:21.:04:26.

lift. That is the thing with beauty contests, you get more losers than

:04:26.:04:34.

winners. The government says these stones are particularly targeted. -

:04:34.:04:44.
:04:44.:04:44.

- these zones. That of course, doesn't convince many Labour MPs.

:04:44.:04:48.

Joan Whalley says that the government had braved this along

:04:48.:04:52.

party-political considerations, which has brought a typically

:04:52.:04:58.

forthright response from the minister in charge of this. That is

:04:58.:05:04.

utterly ridiculous. We are putting these into Labour areas, Lib-Dem

:05:04.:05:10.

areas, Conservative areas, areas I have not got the remotest idea who

:05:10.:05:14.

controls. This is about regeneration. I think that, it says

:05:14.:05:20.

more about the people who says it then government policy. Success by

:05:20.:05:24.

Herod did come as we have been talking about, but they have their

:05:24.:05:28.

critics, haven't they? -- successor for Hereford. The government have

:05:28.:05:35.

been accused of recycling old idea which date back to the 1980s. The

:05:35.:05:39.

shopping centre in the Black Country started off as an

:05:39.:05:46.

Enterprise Zone, under Michael Heseltine. Apart from creating new

:05:46.:05:49.

jobs come but they are accused of destroying jobs, because if you

:05:49.:05:52.

look at the other high streets around the Black Country but have

:05:52.:06:01.

struggled since the shopping centre was built, to compete. Thank you.

:06:01.:06:05.

Unemployment may be up nationally, but here it is falling faster than

:06:05.:06:08.

anywhere else in the country. Figures out today show the jobless

:06:08.:06:14.

total for the region fell by 30,000 over the last quarter, down by 1%,

:06:14.:06:20.

despite this drop, unemployment of regionally is still running at 8.5%,

:06:20.:06:25.

higher than the national average. There are a total of 224,000 people

:06:25.:06:32.

out of work. The level of unemployment among

:06:32.:06:35.

young people in particular remains stubbornly high.

:06:35.:06:39.

Learning skills to help them in the future. These young people have

:06:39.:06:47.

taken advantage of opportunities at a charity in Redditch. There are

:06:47.:06:51.

200 of these in Redditch alone, meaning not in education,

:06:51.:06:55.

employment or training. We have yet people up against graduates to have

:06:55.:06:59.

left university, all the people who have been made redundant, they are

:06:59.:07:04.

going for vacancies, it is virtually making it him possible

:07:05.:07:10.

for our 16 and 17-year-olds. These teenagers are due to start college

:07:10.:07:14.

courses in September, but worry about the future. I have tried

:07:14.:07:23.

handing out about 30 C V s back, and it is scary, really. Tim Lowe

:07:23.:07:28.

is one of the lucky ones, he is due to start a motorsport course at

:07:28.:07:31.

Silverstone, with the ambition of becoming a mechanic at a Formula

:07:31.:07:35.

One. He also spent his summer at this centre, learning to cook, as

:07:35.:07:40.

well as confidence and team building skills. More engineers are

:07:40.:07:44.

needed than before, so that is sort of wire went into that line. It he

:07:44.:07:48.

is right about engineering. This charity has been training

:07:48.:07:54.

apprentice engineers since 1969, and has seen the number of

:07:54.:07:58.

vacancies trouble since last year. Its centre in Coventry wasn't big

:07:58.:08:03.

enough to cope with demand, so it is building another in a Quidditch.

:08:04.:08:09.

A 5th of yen people in the West Midlands are unemployed here, let

:08:09.:08:15.

his 83,000 of them. This training charity which supplies ingenious to

:08:15.:08:19.

charities is struggling to fill 24 vacancies locally. We are

:08:19.:08:24.

representing a part of industry which is working pretty well.

:08:24.:08:27.

Undoubtedly there are wide range of industries and sectors that are not

:08:28.:08:33.

performing as well as engineering. Sertec in coal still makes

:08:33.:08:38.

components for the automotive industry. Becky has joined the firm

:08:38.:08:46.

as an apprentice. Obviously, not been in as much debt as going to

:08:46.:08:51.

university. Becky has worked with us on the job and has gained

:08:51.:08:56.

experience. Had graduate that came straight out of university,

:08:56.:08:59.

although they have the qualification, they wouldn't have

:08:59.:09:03.

the practical experience to back that up. So a bright future in

:09:03.:09:07.

engineering, but a challenging time in many other areas the young

:09:07.:09:14.

people in the West Midlands. Now, hospital which cares for

:09:14.:09:20.

adults with learning abilities and mental-health problems is to close

:09:20.:09:30.
:09:30.:09:40.

next Wednesday. For hospital is run Arden Vale, a purpose-built 25 bed

:09:40.:09:44.

hospital, opened in Meriden near Coventry five years ago. The

:09:44.:09:48.

hospital looks after adults with challenging behaviour, but last

:09:48.:09:52.

month it was revealed it was under police investigation, and staff had

:09:52.:09:56.

been suspended. A review carried out by the Care Quality Commission

:09:56.:10:00.

found that people at the Arden Vale were not protected from physical or

:10:00.:10:04.

emotional harm to stop the management of medicines was unsafe,

:10:04.:10:11.

and does raising concerns were not respected. We have to make sure

:10:11.:10:16.

that residents are looked after and the standards of patient care or

:10:16.:10:21.

off Alternate important. It is a sad day, but it shows us this

:10:21.:10:26.

should not happen again in the future. For hospital is run by a

:10:26.:10:31.

castle back, the company has agreed voluntarily to close it after

:10:31.:10:39.

concerns were raised. Castlebeck also run at this hospital, which

:10:40.:10:43.

was filmed by Panorama. Alternative arrangements are being made for the

:10:43.:10:49.

19 people still being cared for at Arden Vale.

:10:49.:10:56.

In a statement, Castlebeck chief executive said, we will be working

:10:56.:11:01.

with the people in our care, as well as families and care managers,

:11:01.:11:05.

to ensure there is minimum disruption. Joining us now is

:11:05.:11:09.

Andrea Gordon from the Care Quality Commission. What was it that was

:11:09.:11:13.

going on at Arden Vale which meant you wanted to see it shut?

:11:13.:11:18.

carried out a number of visits in June, and identified issues with

:11:18.:11:25.

inappropriate restraint used, inadequate staffing, staff working

:11:25.:11:30.

odd patterns of hours, medicine management issues, and we made a

:11:30.:11:33.

decision that we would take enforcement action against Arden

:11:33.:11:39.

Vale. Over the last week, people have been working with the Primary

:11:39.:11:45.

Care Trust, they went into Arden Vale and said there were still

:11:45.:11:50.

serious issues around management of medicines. You were taking legal

:11:50.:11:57.

action. Why did this... A why it is this understanding about what has

:11:57.:12:01.

been happening at some of these Castlebeck homes only happening

:12:01.:12:05.

after the Panorama programme? we register at all adult social

:12:05.:12:14.

care providers, so we made an assessment on Arden Vale at that

:12:14.:12:18.

time. There were no problems brought to our attention, it was

:12:18.:12:23.

only in May this year where issues were brought to our attention.

:12:23.:12:26.

does say something about checking procedure, you didn't know what was

:12:26.:12:31.

going on. But we are not in and out of place is all the time, we are

:12:31.:12:36.

reliant on other people sharing information with us. Is there any

:12:36.:12:40.

chance of criminal proceedings? couldn't comment at this stage. We

:12:40.:12:45.

worked closely with the provider, and how partners, the Primary Care

:12:45.:12:53.

Trust, and the police, around this The National Deaf Children's

:12:53.:12:56.

Society says it will take Stoke-on- Trent City Council to court over

:12:56.:13:00.

cuts to educational support. The society says the council is in

:13:00.:13:03.

breach of the law by failing to assess the impact the cuts will

:13:03.:13:07.

have on deaf children. If the cuts are made, there will be just three

:13:07.:13:11.

specialist teachers for the 200 deaf children in the city.

:13:11.:13:14.

Network Rail and a signalman have been ordered to appear in court

:13:14.:13:17.

after a woman was killed on a railway crossing. Jane Harding died

:13:17.:13:21.

last year when her car was hit by a train at a level crossing at

:13:21.:13:26.

Moreton-on-Lugg in Herefordshire. The company and signalman are due

:13:26.:13:29.

to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court in October.

:13:29.:13:33.

You are with Midlands Today. Still ahead, Shefali is here with an in-

:13:33.:13:36.

depth forecast. With rain to come, will it be

:13:36.:13:46.
:13:46.:13:47.

drizzle or a downpour? Join me later and find out.

:13:47.:13:49.

Birmingham's biggest shopping centre has reported a huge dip in

:13:49.:13:53.

trade because of last week's riots. Bullring say retailers there have

:13:53.:14:00.

lost up to 50% in takings with official footfall down by 35%.

:14:00.:14:03.

Other businesses say they are struggling to cope with lower than

:14:03.:14:08.

usual cash flow. It was a frenzy of looting caught

:14:08.:14:13.

on the shop's own camera. Some of the teenagers stole just sweets and

:14:13.:14:22.

chocolates. One was just ten-years- old. I really feel sorry for him.

:14:23.:14:27.

This is the sort of training he is getting at that age. I do not know

:14:27.:14:32.

what will happen when he grows up. But what is going to happen in the

:14:32.:14:36.

short term to the family run business he attacked? The cash flow

:14:36.:14:45.

has really gone down because we had low sales and also the stocks have

:14:45.:14:50.

been stolen. It has all gone. big names in the Bullring suffered

:14:50.:14:57.

too albeit indirectly. Our tenant had been telling us that sales are

:14:57.:15:02.

anywhere between 30% and 50% down on last week. At Edmunds in

:15:02.:15:04.

Brindley Place, the Good Food Guide's Midlands restaurant of the

:15:04.:15:08.

year, things are finally picking up. Takings have dropped 80%. There is

:15:08.:15:12.

that fear factor still within Birmingham. People are fawning up

:15:12.:15:19.

to ask if it is safe. -- phoning up. We are just trying to reassure

:15:19.:15:23.

people. The fear factor is still playing a part in Wolverhampton,

:15:23.:15:26.

too. The owners of this antiques shop had their grade two listed

:15:26.:15:29.

window frame put through. And have weeks to wait for a replacement.

:15:29.:15:33.

But almost as bad, they say, is the quiet. I was disappointed more

:15:33.:15:37.

people didn't come to show their support. They did not have to buy

:15:37.:15:43.

things, but shh -- just to show support for the town centre. Around

:15:43.:15:46.

the corner, this mobile phone shop estimates �50,000 worth of damage

:15:46.:15:50.

and lost stock. And the owners couldn't afford insurance. Just

:15:50.:15:53.

over 500 people have now been arrested in connection with the

:15:53.:16:01.

riots. Every day, the number being charge rises. Today, the total

:16:01.:16:04.

stands at 139. Police say the response from the public in

:16:04.:16:08.

identifying the perpetrators has been very positive. And still more

:16:08.:16:15.

faces emerging that police hope you can help identify.

:16:15.:16:18.

A week ago, a corner of Birmingham was propelled into the national

:16:18.:16:24.

headlines, Winson Green. It was of course where three men were killed

:16:24.:16:27.

after being run down by a car as they tried to protect their

:16:27.:16:32.

businesses from looters during the riots. So, how has the community

:16:32.:16:35.

reacted and what is the way forward for them now? Our reporter has been

:16:35.:16:39.

assessing the mood. Three miles out of Birmingham City

:16:39.:16:42.

Centre, in northwest Birmingham, this is Winson Green. Now known for

:16:42.:16:45.

this expanding shrine for 21-year- old Haroon Jahan and brothers

:16:45.:16:50.

Shazad Ali and Abdul Musavir. They were all hit by a car last

:16:50.:16:54.

Wednesday as they guarded a row of shops during riots. Black and Asian

:16:54.:16:57.

people make up 66% of the population here. Businesses are

:16:57.:17:01.

owned by them and cater for them. It is an area that was already

:17:01.:17:09.

being hit by the economic downturn and now this tragedy. Their

:17:09.:17:13.

customers are frightened of coming into the area because there is so

:17:13.:17:20.

much publicity. They are worried things will not be safe for them to

:17:20.:17:24.

come here. All businesses are suffering here. Pinnu Khan has been

:17:24.:17:34.
:17:34.:17:41.

running his shop for 35 years. Many have stayed away in the last week.

:17:41.:17:51.
:17:51.:17:52.

It is a different story. We did not get any problems at all. Down the

:17:52.:17:57.

road at the barbers, an air of disbelief still lingers. We are

:17:57.:18:06.

peaceful community. This negative attention does not help us at all.

:18:06.:18:12.

Sentiments echoed by traders up and down Dudley Road. At the moment, it

:18:12.:18:16.

is quiet and subdued. There are rumours going about about various

:18:16.:18:20.

things. But this is a good community and we are fighting back.

:18:20.:18:25.

But some shoppers are remaining defiant. We have lived here for

:18:25.:18:32.

five years. We mix with everybody, no matter what colour. It is a good

:18:32.:18:37.

community. This is sad. It will be hard for new people coming into the

:18:37.:18:44.

area are. People don't want to be in an area or Cobra they think it

:18:44.:18:49.

is not says. There are independent shops here which rely upon shoppers.

:18:49.:18:54.

Many of them have kept away this week. Businesses here have been

:18:54.:18:58.

telling me the hope that the shoppers will return. For them,

:18:58.:19:04.

testament to the way the whole of the community has come together, in

:19:04.:19:08.

grief and in peace. Meanwhile, the funerals of Shazad

:19:08.:19:11.

Ali, Abdul Musavir and Haroon Jahan are expected to be held tomorrow.

:19:11.:19:15.

It follows a decision to allow their bodies to be released. We can

:19:15.:19:19.

go over to our reporter who is in Winson Green. What can you tell us

:19:19.:19:26.

about the arrangements? Well, I understand the bodies have

:19:26.:19:31.

been held by the coroner up until now, so that the police could carry

:19:32.:19:35.

out their forensic investigations. They are now satisfied with those

:19:35.:19:39.

investigations and have released the bodies to the families, so the

:19:39.:19:44.

funerals can go ahead late tomorrow afternoon. At 2pm, in Summerfield

:19:44.:19:50.

Park, there will be a special ceremony for the three men and all

:19:50.:19:53.

members of the community and all face had been invited by their

:19:53.:19:59.

families. The funerals themselves will take place at Handsworth

:19:59.:20:07.

cemetery. They will be private. What is the latest on the police

:20:07.:20:10.

investigation? One man is being held by police at

:20:10.:20:16.

the moment. They have up until 10pm this evening to release them are

:20:16.:20:20.

charged him. Three other people have also been charged with the

:20:20.:20:27.

murders of these three men. They are 117 year-old youth and two men

:20:27.:20:33.

in their twenties. -- a 17-year-old youth.

:20:33.:20:36.

Onto football and it was a miserable night for our teams with

:20:36.:20:38.

not a single winner in the Championship, League One or League

:20:39.:20:41.

Two. But that won't worry Birmingham City who are preparing

:20:41.:20:46.

for a European adventure instead. Flying out for their first match in

:20:46.:20:50.

a major European competition for 50 years. Birmingham City may have

:20:50.:20:53.

ended last season on a relegation low but they are still enjoying the

:20:53.:20:56.

benefits of the high point. Qualifying for the Europa League by

:20:57.:21:00.

winning the Carling Cup. First destination, the Portuguese island

:21:00.:21:09.

of Madeira to play Nacional. Geeky these teams have earned their way

:21:09.:21:19.
:21:19.:21:19.

into the competition. They are of a good quality. -- these teams. We

:21:19.:21:24.

must play our best. We do not want to be chasing the ball all night,

:21:24.:21:28.

especially the way that the Portuguese play for at all. I think

:21:28.:21:34.

we will win. It will be tight. 1-0, hopefully. And they were happy to

:21:34.:21:37.

leave behind the rigours of the Championship where, ten days into

:21:37.:21:38.

the season, teams are already the season, teams are already

:21:39.:21:41.

playing their third league game. It has been a miserable start for

:21:41.:21:44.

Coventry City, but their fans still made the trip to Crystal Palace and

:21:44.:21:48.

had their hopes lifted by a goal from Lukas Jutkiewicz. But it was

the move again to London. He has set his sights on winning the only

place left on the GB Canoe team for 2012. If you ever wondered how much

sheer determination it needs to chase an Olympic Dream, our

:23:09.:23:19.
:23:19.:23:29.

I liked the feeling of being strong when I am fighting against the

:23:29.:23:36.

water. I started the sport when I was 10 years old. My school had a

:23:36.:23:40.

link with the local canoeing club. I was one of the lucky ones that

:23:41.:23:46.

managed to start here. My biggest achievements have been winning a

:23:46.:23:54.

gold medal in the Junior World Championships three times. This

:23:54.:24:01.

year, I won silver at the European Championships. Now I want to win

:24:01.:24:08.

some individual medals. My family have been very supportive. They

:24:08.:24:14.

have had to drive me around the country. They come abroad to what

:24:14.:24:19.

to me as well. We are very proud of them and we follow all of his

:24:19.:24:22.

competitions. We really hope he does well and makes it to the

:24:22.:24:28.

Olympics. Canoeing takes up most of my life, really. I am always

:24:28.:24:34.

thinking about it. I am kind of obsessed. When I first started, I

:24:34.:24:40.

was coached by local coaches who are volunteers. Now I am on the

:24:40.:24:44.

Olympic development programme. I study sports science and management

:24:44.:24:49.

at Nottingham Trent University. I have chosen to do my second year of

:24:49.:24:52.

a two years and then I am moving to London and will be training full-

:24:52.:24:58.

time up until the Games. There is on the one place available in each

:24:58.:25:02.

category for the Olympics. There will be six people at the top

:25:02.:25:11.

fighting it out. The Olympics, for every athlete, is the biggest

:25:11.:25:17.

competition in the world. Everybody wants an Olympic gold. I would give

:25:17.:25:25.

anything to compete in the Olympics. Call for it! We are all rooting for

:25:25.:25:31.

Call for it! We are all rooting for him, not just his grandfather.

:25:31.:25:34.

Over the next few days, perhaps the most notable event will be

:25:34.:25:42.

tomorrow's rain. There is the potential for some fairly heavy

:25:42.:25:46.

rain, but, then again, some of you may escape with a mere spattering.

:25:46.:25:49.

You can see where the heavier rain in concentrated tomorrow from the

:25:49.:25:52.

darker shades of blue on the map. It is the southeast that is bearing

:25:52.:25:55.

the brunt but it tends to become watered down further North. There

:25:55.:25:58.

is a ridge of high pressure building in on Friday and then the

:25:58.:26:01.

next reference point will be this front that heads in over the

:26:01.:26:05.

weekend but the timing of that may leave the days dry. So, tonight,

:26:05.:26:08.

even though we have rain arriving tomorrow, the cloud will start to

:26:08.:26:16.

melt away leaving much clearer conditions. Some mist on the

:26:16.:26:19.

hilltops and a cooler night with temperatures dropping to ten

:26:19.:26:25.

Celsius in rural parts. But by tomorrow morning the cloud is

:26:25.:26:35.
:26:35.:26:42.

beginning to thicken up from the South and rain arrives soon after.

:26:42.:26:45.

The heaviest of the rain will sit in the southeast, while the

:26:45.:26:48.

lightest of the rain falls elsewhere and in the north it may

:26:48.:26:51.

about to hardly anything at all. A cool day ahead as well with

:26:51.:27:01.
:27:01.:27:04.

temperatures rising no higher than 16 Celsius. The rain then clears

:27:04.:27:09.

away tomorrow. The cloud breaks up and we all wake up to quite a bit

:27:09.:27:15.

of sunshine on Friday morning. There may be some high to medium

:27:15.:27:18.

level cloud bubbling up through the day but it stays dry and warms up

:27:18.:27:25.

too with highs of 22. Quite warm too with highs of 22. Quite warm

:27:25.:27:27.

over the weekend. A look at tonight's main headlines:

:27:27.:27:30.

After the worst violence in England for decades, the Prime Minister

:27:30.:27:33.

praises the courts for handing out stiff sentences to rioters.
