Hello and welcome to Midlands Today with Nick Owen and Suzanne Virdee.

:00:04.:00:07.

The headlines tonight: Failed at every turn, why did three hospitals

:00:07.:00:16.

fail to diagnose a teenager's TB which then killed her? All of their

:00:16.:00:22.

commissions were devastated by the fact they had not made the

:00:22.:00:27.

diagnosis of. Hundreds in the queue, symbol of the desperate scramble

:00:27.:00:31.

for jobs in the region. Ten years on, a son remembers the

:00:31.:00:38.

father who died on 9/11. A this is the 10th anniversary and for me it

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:49.

is very much the time to draw a line.

:00:49.:00:52.

And up close and personal, as the rugby world cup sends passions

:00:52.:01:02.
:01:02.:01:03.

Good evening and welcome to Friday's Midlands Today from the

:01:03.:01:10.

BBC. Tonight, the parents of a teenage girl who died from

:01:10.:01:13.

tuberculosis say she was failed at every turn by doctors. They took

:01:13.:01:16.

15-year-old Alina Sarag to three hospitals and all failed to

:01:16.:01:19.

diagnose her. The BBC can reveal that one

:01:19.:01:22.

hospital didn't identify TB from an X-ray and cancelled a simple test

:01:22.:01:26.

which could have shown the disease. Our health correspondent, Michele

:01:26.:01:33.

Paduano, has this exclusive report. Alina Sarag died earlier this year

:01:33.:01:36.

from TB, having been in constant agony for four months. Her parents

:01:36.:01:44.

tried desperately to find out what was wrong. Appalling, disgusting.

:01:44.:01:48.

There was no response for anything, even though we were telling them

:01:48.:01:53.

that she was vomiting. She was eating something, she would eat a

:01:53.:01:57.

great, chivvied into six pieces. Within a minute, they would come

:01:57.:02:04.

back. It was at this school during 2009, but she was diagnosed with

:02:04.:02:08.

dormant tuberculosis. She was treated with antibiotics but none

:02:08.:02:13.

of the stick -- an independent investigation found they had not

:02:13.:02:23.
:02:23.:02:24.

The trust which runs the clinic said, we have completed an internal

:02:24.:02:26.

investigation into the care provided to Alina Sarag by

:02:26.:02:29.

Birmingham Chest Clinic and an action plan has been developed with

:02:29.:02:32.

our clinicians. A year later after a holiday in Pakistan, Alina became

:02:32.:02:34.

ill. First she was taken to Heartlands Hospital. It found

:02:34.:02:37.

nothing wrong. She went to Birmingham Children's Hospital. It

:02:37.:02:40.

queried typhoid or an infestation. Then the family took her to City

:02:40.:02:43.

and Sandwell hospitals where her best chance was lost. So why to

:02:43.:02:47.

different hospitals? We took her to different hospitals because we were

:02:47.:02:55.

hoping that somebody would pick up what was wrong with her. We thought

:02:55.:03:01.

maybe a better Dr would pick up what was wrong with her. We were

:03:01.:03:07.

failed at every turn. She was brought here to the accident and

:03:07.:03:10.

emergency where a junior doctor did carry out a thorough investigation.

:03:10.:03:20.
:03:20.:03:24.

He advised a test on her flam up but was overruled. -- phlegm.

:03:24.:03:26.

Radiologist, who examined the x-ray thought TB unlikely. A radiologist

:03:26.:03:31.

who examined the X-ray for the review thought it was TB. The

:03:31.:03:34.

hospitals medical director admits that there were mistakes with Miss

:03:34.:03:36.

Sarag's care, but not in the hospital's systems. He insisted

:03:36.:03:39.

that not diagnosing TB from the X- ray was reasonable and

:03:39.:03:48.

understandable. The recommendation was to see how she goes. If it was

:03:49.:03:52.

still an issue, we would have repeated the X-ray further down the

:03:52.:03:58.

line and think about further tests. Finally, Birmingham children's

:03:58.:04:04.

Hospital decided it was all in her head. Alina Sarag was sent to a

:04:04.:04:10.

psychologist, but was too ill for the assessment. She died on the day

:04:10.:04:16.

she was due to go back. Michele is here in the studio now.

:04:16.:04:20.

Michele, we know TB is on the rise again, but this case suggests the

:04:20.:04:23.

health service hasn't got a firm grasp of the issue, doesn't it?

:04:23.:04:27.

This is only one case and TB is difficult to diagnose. I feel sorry

:04:27.:04:32.

for the hospital because at least they considered the possibility.

:04:32.:04:34.

Heartlands hospital knew the history but did not do a chest X-

:04:34.:04:39.

ray. The Children's Hospital had two opportunities and didn't even

:04:39.:04:44.

consider it. Jacky Chambers things they do need to raise awareness.

:04:44.:04:49.

think everyone needs to be aware that tuberculosis is still around

:04:49.:04:53.

in the city. It is very important that we educate all of our doctors,

:04:54.:04:59.

both family and hospital doctors, to be conscious and alert for the

:04:59.:05:03.

symptoms and signs of tuberculosis, particularly the more unusual forms.

:05:03.:05:09.

That is what we are taking forward right now. She also wants to be

:05:09.:05:13.

able to flag up these potential cases between different hospitals.

:05:13.:05:18.

I'm afraid as far as the inquest is concerned, we will have to wait

:05:18.:05:24.

until next year. Still ahead tonight: what needs to be done to

:05:24.:05:27.

ensure the business jewel in Birmingham's crown shines even

:05:27.:05:37.
:05:37.:05:37.

A graphic illustration of unemployment rates in the region

:05:37.:05:41.

was there for all to see in the Black Country today, as more than

:05:41.:05:45.

1,500 people chased 500 jobs. Huge queues snaked all around a

:05:45.:05:48.

college campus in Bilston in the scramble for the posts. Joanne

:05:48.:05:51.

Writtle reports. This was the scene outside the City of Wolverhampton

:05:51.:05:55.

College as people queued around the building at a jobs fair. Among them

:05:55.:05:58.

three women made redundant yesterday when the supermarket they

:05:58.:06:03.

worked in closed down in Willenhall. Joanne Cook had clocked up 33 years

:06:03.:06:12.

service. I feel numb at the minute. It has not sunk in. On Monday

:06:12.:06:21.

morning, one I'm getting up for work, and will realise 10th lost --

:06:21.:06:26.

I will realise that that point. Thomas Whyte was made redundant in

:06:26.:06:29.

March. He's 61 and was a carpenter and repair team leader for a

:06:29.:06:33.

housing trust for 15 years. It is hard for my generation. If my wife

:06:33.:06:38.

was not in work, we would be in a desperate situation and might even

:06:38.:06:44.

lose our house. Inside, organisers and employers saw a non-stop stream

:06:44.:06:51.

of people. More than Hampton -- Wolverhampton is a place where

:06:51.:06:55.

people are keen to take positive actions to get back into were.

:06:55.:06:59.

is the scale of people looking for work and there are still more

:06:59.:07:05.

queuing outside. 25 employers are here with a potential 500 temporary

:07:05.:07:11.

and permanent jobs on offer. Thomas, from Wednesfield, tried to sell his

:07:11.:07:17.

skills to everyone. I am feeling this could be an opening for me. I

:07:17.:07:21.

would like to get my foot in the door. Meanwhile, the redundant shop

:07:21.:07:23.

workers we saw earlier were optimistic about interviews with

:07:23.:07:31.

other stores. You will hear from me this evening, OK, so you can come

:07:31.:07:37.

in for us. Good luck with your application. As for Thomas...

:07:37.:07:42.

are a number of companies who are asking me to apply and some have

:07:42.:07:46.

promised me an interview. This is 1000 % better than the response

:07:46.:07:54.

I've been getting for the last six months. I've got a couple of weeks

:07:54.:07:58.

left to find so thing. Hours after opening, people were still arriving

:07:58.:08:08.
:08:08.:08:10.

to queue. Walsall council has accidentally

:08:10.:08:14.

dumped personal details in his kit. Hundreds of documents were found.

:08:14.:08:18.

The statements were thrown away by a contractor on the council's

:08:18.:08:22.

behalf. Plans for a train station at the

:08:22.:08:32.
:08:32.:08:34.

Rico arena and a major upgrade of their line have moved a step closer.

:08:34.:08:40.

-- Ricoh. On Sunday, millions will remember a

:08:40.:08:43.

day that shook the world, September 11th 2001 when terrorists flew two

:08:43.:08:45.

planes into New York's Twin Towers. Memorial events are taking place,

:08:45.:08:51.

and prayers will be said at church services across the West Midlands.

:08:52.:08:54.

In this special report, Ben Godfrey's been to meet people from

:08:54.:08:56.

our region whose lives fundamentally changed on that

:08:56.:09:06.
:09:06.:09:15.

On September the 11th 2001, New Yorkers greeted a cool, cloudless

:09:15.:09:20.

morning. But a tragedy was about to unfold as people from the Midlands

:09:20.:09:29.

were heading into work at the World Trade Centre. The sky turned black

:09:29.:09:36.

and the degree, you could see... We were inside at that time. Andrew

:09:36.:09:39.

Philpott from Worcester was helping to launch the American arm of an IT

:09:39.:09:42.

business. He was eating breakfast in the north tower when the first

:09:43.:09:45.

hijacked plane struck. This hotel room card, a chilling reminder that

:09:45.:09:52.

he and colleagues survived this atrocity. We had to escape from the

:09:52.:09:55.

building is wearing what we had. Have got the ship still which has

-- I have got. With explosions being seen across the skyline, CNN

:10:04.:10:06.

correspondent Patricia Sabga was despatched to file eyewitness

:10:06.:10:16.

reports. Paddy, are you there? here. About an hour ago, I was on

:10:16.:10:21.

the corner of Broadway and another street, 1000 yards from the World

:10:21.:10:25.

Trade Centre. The first tower collapsed. There was a massive

:10:25.:10:28.

explosion. This morning, she was on BBC Hereford and Worcester

:10:28.:10:32.

recalling a moment that changed her life. For a split second, I thought

:10:32.:10:42.
:10:42.:10:42.

I'm going to do I. -- going to die. She became a war correspondent,

:10:42.:10:47.

Halligan was waiting to hear. That of his father Bob. He was working

remains have never been found. was a real Englishman in New York.

:11:13.:11:23.
:11:23.:11:28.

He loved his English eccentricities. 9/11 changed Rob's life. He pursued

:11:28.:11:31.

his passion for music, this song he filmed on the streets of New York.

:11:31.:11:36.

He's also raised more than �25,000 for charity. How do you feel toured

:11:36.:11:41.

the perpetrators of this atrocity? Any sense of forgiveness? Sometimes

:11:41.:11:46.

I can say yes, sometimes I can say and working on it. I think they're

:11:46.:11:50.

wrong a lot of other issues. You have to look at why it happened, go

:11:50.:12:00.

back beyond that time to find out... You need to draw a little bit of a

:12:00.:12:04.

line under the last 10 years and say it is time to move on and now,

:12:04.:12:09.

and hopefully find a bit of closure. There are other families in the

:12:09.:12:13.

Midlands whose loved ones were killed on 9/11. Here and on Sunday,

Jewellers in one of Birmingham's most historic districts called for

:12:43.:12:45.

greater business support from the Government today.

:12:45.:12:48.

The Jewellery Quarter dates back more than 250 years and is still

:12:48.:12:51.

home to over 400 jewellery companies. But many of those firms

:12:51.:12:54.

face big challenges for the future. Made in the Jewellery Quarter,

:12:54.:12:56.

Birmingham. A platinum gold ring, in the expert hands of jeweller

:12:56.:13:01.

James Newman. Our customer is really looking for something

:13:01.:13:07.

special, something unique, something original. James Newman

:13:07.:13:09.

joined others in banging the drum for Birmingham manufacturing, for

:13:09.:13:16.

the benefit of this man. A good to meet you, welcome. Martin

:13:16.:13:18.

Donnelly's job is to advise ministers in the Department for

:13:18.:13:21.

Business and at the School of Jewellery he met company bosses who

:13:21.:13:26.

had plenty to say. Lots of discussions about skills. Good

:13:26.:13:29.

taking him say that this current government gets manufacturing but

:13:29.:13:32.

we need to see growth coming through. Manufacturing as a whole

:13:32.:13:37.

has suffered through cheap overseas competition. 30,000 people worked

:13:37.:13:40.

in the jewellery trade in Birmingham at the turn of the 20th

:13:40.:13:43.

century. It's now around 2,000. But this isn't about trying to compete

:13:43.:13:52.

against cheap foreign imports. The story now is not volume but value,

:13:52.:13:55.

and the job they are trying to do here is promote the Jewellery

:13:55.:13:58.

Quarter as the place to come for high quality, high value goods.

:13:58.:14:01.

often people don't know what Birmingham has to offer. We have an

:14:01.:14:04.

amazing wealth of activity in the jewellery Quarter. The half high-

:14:04.:14:10.

end automotive and specialist, high value added manufacturing. We need

:14:10.:14:14.

to celebrate his it. And it was a message the man from the ministry

:14:14.:14:17.

was taking on board. The high quality luxury-goods market is

:14:17.:14:21.

growing fast with a new consumers in Asia and elsewhere. This is a

:14:21.:14:26.

real opportunity for Birmingham. The quality of high-end product and

:14:26.:14:31.

design is world-beating. And as he left he promised to return and in

:14:31.:14:34.

the meantime promote the city. It's likely many people will hold him to

:14:34.:14:44.
:14:44.:15:00.

Wakeman School and arts college has a good reputation. This year's

:15:00.:15:04.

GCSEs with the best ever. But its pupil numbers are at an all-time

:15:04.:15:10.

low and despite months of protests culminating in this demonstration,

:15:10.:15:15.

at Shire Hall, the decision to close was taken. The pupils have

:15:15.:15:19.

mocked up a crime scene because they believe it is criminal for

:15:19.:15:22.

their score to be closed and they are doing it right under the

:15:22.:15:27.

meeting rooms where those decisions are being made. They should see our

:15:27.:15:31.

school for how it is and that it is a good school which should not shy.

:15:31.:15:37.

If you get rid of the family, it will be an incredible a disaster.

:15:37.:15:39.

Emotive as their arguments are, they were not enough to change

:15:39.:15:43.

minds and the council said it was not viable to run a more than half

:15:43.:15:48.

empty school. The school buildings can accommodate around 670 pupils.

:15:48.:15:54.

But at present, there are just 230. For a minute there was talk of

:15:54.:16:01.

school closures, obviously parents link that with our school and

:16:01.:16:07.

started to be concerned about their children coming here. -- from the

:16:07.:16:11.

minute there was talk. I've lost about 180 children in the last few

:16:11.:16:17.

months. So now the fight is on with the school claiming that these

:16:17.:16:20.

Council's consultation process will flawed. There were numerous

:16:20.:16:23.

complaints to the ombudsman and there are now investigating

:16:23.:16:26.

Shropshire council to see whether or not they are guilty of

:16:26.:16:31.

maladministration for example. There is also the adjudicator. If

:16:31.:16:35.

they look at the case, I am fairly confident it would be rejected and

:16:35.:16:39.

the council would have to support the school in repairing the damage

:16:39.:16:45.

that the council has done to it. The school is it Scheduled to close

:16:45.:16:53.

in 2013 but the real fight to keep it open has only just begun.

:16:53.:16:56.

Shropshire council told us they refute all claims of

:16:56.:16:59.

maladministration, saying it has been a very difficult decision to

:16:59.:17:03.

close the school. They are absolutely satisfied they followed

:17:03.:17:11.

correct processes to the letter. Still to come tonight: the answer

:17:11.:17:14.

to this question, ahead of Europe's largest free arts festival - what

:17:14.:17:18.

links these two photos? And I'll be here with a look ahead

:17:18.:17:21.

to a blustery autumnal weekend, which could have a real sting in

:17:21.:17:31.
:17:31.:17:32.

its tail. All the details coming up 600 years ago, an unknown Midlander

:17:32.:17:34.

commissioned a book or compilation of texts. It's called the Vernon

:17:34.:17:37.

Manuscript, extremely long and it's been described as one of the

:17:37.:17:46.

greatest treasures of early English literature.

:17:46.:17:49.

It's also unheard of, outside the Oxford library where it's kept. But

:17:49.:17:52.

now the book has been digitised. And for researchers it's a chance

:17:52.:17:55.

to hear how it might have sounded centuries ago. Here's our science

:17:55.:18:04.

correspondent David Gregory. The Vernon manuscript, poetry and

:18:04.:18:07.

prose for pious readers written in 1400. And written in a West

:18:07.:18:13.

Midlands dialect. It is written on a calf skin and it is thought it

:18:13.:18:23.
:18:23.:18:24.

took 200 animals. You can now fit it all on one DVD. So while the

:18:24.:18:26.

manuscript remains locked in the Bodlean Library in Oxford, the

:18:26.:18:29.

words are returning to the Midlands home to the dialect they were

:18:29.:18:33.

written in. A lot of the key characteristics of the accents now

:18:33.:18:37.

were already there 600 years ago. We are studying the relationship

:18:37.:18:47.
:18:47.:18:56.

between the two. You is often Researchers from the University of

:19:20.:19:27.

home is... I might ask him if forgiveness and all my sins...

:19:27.:19:32.

Reading 600 year-old texts takes some practice but the hope is that

:19:32.:19:36.

one day this manuscript will go on display back in the Midlands, where

:19:36.:19:45.

it came from. If you would like to read the resit

Stoke City hoping that record signing Peter Crouch can mark his

:20:00.:20:03.

debut with a goal against one of his former clubs Liverpool.

:20:03.:20:06.

While West Bromwich Albion will be desperate to kick start their

:20:06.:20:09.

season, no points so far after their first three games. They've

:20:09.:20:12.

conceded late goals in all three. But manager Roy Hodgson doesn't

:20:13.:20:20.

think it'll be an ongoing problem. The timing of the goals as one of

:20:20.:20:24.

those things that happens in football. Goals are scored in early

:20:24.:20:29.

and they are scored late. Sometimes you can make a big mistake trying

:20:29.:20:36.

to read something into it which actually is not they have. -- is

their final-winning heroics of 2003. But today the excitement was also

morning, several VIP guests joined the party. Half-a-dozen Malory's

but enjoyed one as well. Maybe this wasn't the right moment to remind

:22:12.:22:16.

them that that New Zealand have not won the World Cup since 1987. If

:22:16.:22:22.

they don't win it on old -- home soil, how about England? You never

The Paralympic Games tickets go on sale today. I want my friends and

family to come. They didn't get to come to Beijing so having them

there will be good. It sounds like loads of people want to come. It is

going to be good. It's the same as the Olympics relive. Very

Now your chance to become real life art. It's a new self-portrait
