BBC. Tonight: Claims that crime will rise as our region's largest

:00:12.:00:22.
:00:22.:00:26.

police force deals with cuts. Already this year, crime is down.

:00:26.:00:29.

An experienced detective has spoken out, as a staff survey leaked to

:00:29.:00:33.

the BBC revealed low morale at West Midlands Police. A majority of

:00:33.:00:36.

police staff feel that sense of personal responsibility to provide

:00:36.:00:40.

the best service possible and now they're feeling frustrated, because

:00:40.:00:50.
:00:50.:00:56.

they can. A charity is found over �100,000 after a man died after

:00:56.:01:06.
:01:06.:01:07.

being scalded in the bath. Good evening and welcome to Wednesday's

:01:07.:01:11.

Midlands Today from the BBC. Tonight: Claims that crime will

:01:11.:01:14.

rise as our region's largest police force deals with cuts. An

:01:14.:01:16.

experienced detective has spoken out, as a staff survey leaked to

:01:16.:01:25.

the BBC revealed low morale at West The survey, which was completed by

:01:25.:01:28.

just over a third of the workforce in July, suggests 69% of employees

:01:28.:01:32.

think that staff morale is not high and that only 31% would recommend

:01:32.:01:37.

West Midlands Police as a good place to work. It also suggests

:01:37.:01:43.

that 60% of employees don't feel fairly rewarded in their job.

:01:44.:01:46.

Tonight the force said crime was falling with last month seeing some

:01:46.:01:50.

of the best crime fighting figures for a decade. Our special

:01:50.:01:52.

correspondent, Peter Wilson, has this report.

:01:52.:01:55.

The West Midlands detective with more than 20 years experience

:01:55.:01:58.

usually investigates murders and gangland shootings. His comments

:01:58.:02:03.

come as the force tries to make �126 million savings. We are

:02:03.:02:07.

calling the detective Andrew. He has asked us to protect his

:02:07.:02:16.

identity this is not his real voice. With the experience that I have

:02:16.:02:20.

within the police force, I know that with the smaller amount of

:02:20.:02:23.

police officers there will be the opportunist people who will take

:02:23.:02:28.

advantage of it. By reducing the police family so significantly, I

:02:28.:02:34.

can only foresee that crime will Andrew says the criticism from

:02:34.:02:37.

politicians during the riots felt like a kick in the teeth to

:02:37.:02:43.

frontline officers. Morale is very low. Officers were working 20 hours

:02:43.:02:49.

a day for a week during the riots, coming in, not seeing their family.

:02:49.:02:54.

The professionalism cuts in. You want to catch the bad guys, but to

:02:54.:02:57.

have the politicians turn round and say that the police are inflexible

:02:57.:03:02.

had a massive impact on officers. In June and July this year, a staff

:03:02.:03:04.

survey of both police and non- uniformed staff revealed poor

:03:04.:03:09.

morale in the force. More than half say they don't have enough

:03:09.:03:12.

equipment to do their job properly. 73% said that burracracy was not

:03:12.:03:15.

being cut, while 72% said that communities were not being better

:03:15.:03:22.

served or protected. The Deputy Chief Constable and the man who has

:03:22.:03:25.

been tasked to balance the budget was today giving the force's robust

:03:25.:03:35.

response. I think that we're working really hard. In September

:03:35.:03:39.

we dealt with the party conference, dealing with the arrests from the

:03:39.:03:45.

disorder, a major counter-terrorism operation and robbery this month is

:03:45.:03:51.

the laws that has been in a decade. Police rank and file staff are not

:03:51.:03:55.

normally allowed to answer questions about the force. Why have

:03:55.:04:00.

you chosen to hide your identity, what do you frightened of? I want

:04:00.:04:05.

to give you honest answers and I feel that if I give you honest

:04:05.:04:08.

answers and my identity is no one at that there will be repercussions

:04:08.:04:18.

for me. So will, will crime rise of numbers fall? - - if that police

:04:18.:04:24.

numbers fall? It is too simple to say that there is an inevitability

:04:24.:04:34.

about a rising crime. So, he is being honest about its an impact?

:04:34.:04:39.

This officer is saying thats by hiding his identity he can be

:04:39.:04:46.

honest. Are you being honest with us? Yes, we are. It is a 20 % drop

:04:46.:04:50.

on her Budget and that is a big challenge. We need to challenge the

:04:50.:04:55.

way we work and do things differently. The way the services

:04:55.:04:59.

delivered will have to change. We were very clear about what those

:04:59.:05:05.

changes will be. We will continue to protect the public. The majority

:05:05.:05:09.

of the job losses will be felt by March next year. Tough times ahead

:05:09.:05:13.

for those working at West Midlands police. Peter Wilson joins us now

:05:14.:05:16.

from Lloyd House in Central Birmingham, the headquarters of

:05:16.:05:19.

West Midlands Police. Peter is staff morale at an all time low

:05:19.:05:21.

because of the changes and cuts that we've highlighted over the

:05:22.:05:30.

past few weeks? By have been covering the West Midlands police

:05:30.:05:34.

for more than 20 years and I had no one on many occasions that morale

:05:34.:05:40.

has been low. They deal with lots of problems and the West Midlands,

:05:40.:05:47.

but I would like to say that the officer that the spoken to his

:05:47.:05:51.

knocks somebody who would like to complain. He doesn't to be

:05:51.:05:55.

reflecting what a lot of frontline officers are thinking and feeling

:05:55.:06:00.

tonight. What are the politicians saying about this? David Cameron

:06:01.:06:04.

has said that these cuts have to happen because of the deficits and

:06:04.:06:11.

the police have to share part of the problems of so many public

:06:11.:06:17.

organisations. Police officers are having their pay, their pensions

:06:17.:06:22.

scrutinised and its at the West Midlands police they are facing a

:06:22.:06:26.

complete reorganisation, so there are a lot of frustrated people, and

:06:27.:06:32.

in some cases - - in some places angry people. That is the mood here

:06:32.:06:34.

tonight. Later in tonight's programme:

:06:34.:06:38.

Taking a gun to the pub - we will be having a closer look at the

:06:38.:06:45.

forgotten sport of bell target A Birmingham-based housing

:06:45.:06:48.

association has been fined �135,000 after an elderly man died from

:06:48.:06:55.

severe burns while taking a bath. Months later another man was

:06:55.:07:00.

scalded in a bath at a different home run by the same organisation.

:07:00.:07:03.

A court heard today that the water temperature was not properly

:07:03.:07:04.

controlled. As Joanne Writtle reports, Anthony Ironmonger's

:07:04.:07:14.

family read a statement at the end of the case.

:07:14.:07:19.

Today we should have been celebrating her dad 79th birthday.

:07:19.:07:25.

Today we're at courts because of the feelings of Midland Heart. We

:07:25.:07:29.

can only hope that after today the way that the noble people are

:07:30.:07:32.

looked after will change. family of Anthony Ironmonger spoke

:07:32.:07:35.

out after hearing at Birmingham Crown Court how he died after

:07:35.:07:38.

suffering burns in a scalding bath at a support home for vulnerable

:07:38.:07:40.

people. Summerhill Home, run by a charitable housing association

:07:40.:07:45.

Called Midland Heart, was here in Birmingham, but has since closed.

:07:45.:07:48.

The court heard how staff prised open a communal bathroom door after

:07:48.:07:58.
:07:58.:08:02.

shouts for help were heard. She was found lying on his side in the

:08:02.:08:06.

battle of the water still running. He was in distress, saying I am

:08:06.:08:12.

burning. And member of staff said he was unable to put his

:08:12.:08:16.

temperature in the water. Anthony Ironmonger suffered 40% burns on

:08:16.:08:24.

6th December 2007. He died 12 days later. In August 2008, a second man

:08:24.:08:27.

Kevin Clarke suffered scalds in a bath at another hone run by Midland

:08:27.:08:36.

Heart. He was discharged from hospital on 17th September. The

:08:36.:08:41.

company admitted to breaches of the Health and Safety at Work Act and

:08:41.:08:47.

the prosecution brought by the council. It was fined �100,000

:08:47.:08:51.

Anne's ordered to pay �35,000 in costs. A spokesman for Midland

:08:51.:08:54.

Heart said: We offer our sincere apologies to Mr Clarke and to the

:08:54.:08:57.

family and friends of Mr Ironmonger. We have taken steps to address

:08:57.:09:00.

potential risks associated with hot water in our independent living

:09:00.:09:04.

homes." Anthony Ironmonger would have been 79 today.

:09:04.:09:07.

Two men have been arrested after police were shot at during rioting

:09:07.:09:10.

in Birmingham in August. Shots were also aimed at a police helicopter

:09:10.:09:15.

during disorder in the Newtown area of the city. The two men, both aged

:09:15.:09:20.

20, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Police today also

:09:20.:09:23.

released CCTV footage in an attempt to trace a third man wanted in

:09:23.:09:29.

connection with the incident. A 21-year-old man has been arrested

:09:29.:09:32.

on suspicion of murder in connection with the deaths of three

:09:32.:09:35.

men during the riots. Haroon Jahan and brothers Shazad Ali and Abdul

:09:35.:09:39.

Musavir were hit by a car in the early hours of 10th August in

:09:39.:09:42.

Winson Green. It brings the total number of people arrested in

:09:42.:09:52.
:09:52.:09:56.

connection with their deaths to 13. Nine people have been charged.

:09:56.:09:59.

Lawyers who concealed a report that suggested a young man's death may

:09:59.:10:03.

have been avoidable said they did it because they were acting in the

:10:03.:10:05.

best interests of Stafford Hospital. Hospital Trust Secretary and Head

:10:05.:10:07.

of Legal Services Kate Levy and Trust solicitor, Stuart Knowles,

:10:08.:10:10.

were at the public inqury to answer questions about their conduct

:10:10.:10:13.

following the death of a 20-year- old man. Here's our Health

:10:13.:10:21.

Correspondent, Michele Paduano. The family arrived at the hospital

:10:21.:10:28.

having had their complaints against the witnesses thrown out. The

:10:28.:10:38.
:10:38.:10:38.

solicitors had done nothing wrong. We are angry, upsets. Real mixed

:10:38.:10:42.

emotions today. For the family it will be a really difficult day to

:10:42.:10:49.

trying get through. Their son had an accident on his mountain bike.

:10:49.:10:55.

He was sent home from the hospital and bled to death. But a report by

:10:55.:10:59.

a senior doctor would said that the debt may have been avoidable was

:10:59.:11:06.

never sent to the coroner. Kiki Dee as the doctor to take up his report

:11:06.:11:11.

so because it could cost the family distress or looking bad for the

:11:11.:11:21.
:11:21.:11:21.

hospital. She said: Although Kate Beagley father with hindsight the

:11:21.:11:26.

edited report should have been sent to the coroner, the trust solicitor

:11:26.:11:29.

disagreed. Neither of them could remember whose decision it was not

:11:29.:11:34.

descend in the reports. Mr Knowles said he would point out major

:11:34.:11:44.
:11:44.:11:52.

feelings, but this case did not There are a lot of questions about

:11:52.:11:59.

lots of vital evidence that was missed. We are shocked by the

:11:59.:12:03.

tameness of the inquiry. We have been representations to them, but

:12:03.:12:08.

they don't think it will alter anything. Quite shocked. Mr Knowles

:12:08.:12:12.

and mislead the left by a back door to avoid answering any more

:12:12.:12:16.

questions. Michele joins us now from Stafford. Michele, so how is

:12:16.:12:18.

it that hospital solicitors can withhold this sort of in

:12:18.:12:26.

information? It does seem strange, but if you think about a solicitor

:12:26.:12:29.

working for a big multinational company and perhaps there was some

:12:29.:12:33.

pollution of a river, you would not expect the solicitors to admit

:12:33.:12:37.

immediately that there was a problem, and it is the same for

:12:37.:12:43.

trust solicitors. They say they walk a tightrope and there is a

:12:43.:12:47.

move towards more openness, but this will have to pick about the

:12:47.:12:50.

hospital. What rights do coroners have to demand this sort of

:12:50.:12:57.

information? There is no legal reason why they have to hand over

:12:57.:13:02.

this information. It is done on the basis of goodwill. I was shocked to

:13:02.:13:06.

find that out because I always thought that they would have all

:13:06.:13:11.

the information. Charities are warning they will

:13:11.:13:15.

have to cut staff after a big drop in donations. They say the current

:13:15.:13:18.

economic climate, rising bills and living costs mean more and more of

:13:18.:13:21.

us are holding onto our cash rather than give it to a good cause.

:13:21.:13:24.

Voluntary organisations are having to think of more inventive ways to

:13:24.:13:30.

prevent them from folding, as Bob Hockenhull reports.

:13:30.:13:32.

The Noah's Ark Trust has been supporting bereaved children in

:13:33.:13:41.

Worcestershire and Herefordshire for 13 years. Being able to talk to

:13:41.:13:45.

the charity means that we could get our emotions out. We didn't need to

:13:45.:13:50.

be embarrassed. I got very depressed, so without their help I

:13:50.:13:52.

don't know what I would have done. But the charity is facing a

:13:53.:13:55.

shortfall of �18,000 a month. It relies almost totally on donations,

:13:55.:13:58.

these have reduced considerably. Six out of 12 staff are facing

:13:58.:14:08.
:14:08.:14:11.

redundancy. It is terribly tragic. I just don't know where those

:14:11.:14:14.

children will go. So some people might argue that families should

:14:14.:14:18.

pay for your services. There are some families who can afford to pay,

:14:18.:14:24.

and to those families are plies if you can afford to, please do pay. A

:14:24.:14:31.

lot of children cant afford it. recent survey found that 90 % of

:14:31.:14:34.

charities were feeling less confident about securing adequate

:14:34.:14:39.

funding than they were at the height of the recession in 2008.

:14:39.:14:44.

There are 30,000 fewer paid staff working in charities than there was

:14:44.:14:48.

12 months ago. Times are not great at the minute. To survive,

:14:48.:14:51.

charities are looking at new ways of funding. This voluntary

:14:51.:14:53.

organisation, which provides after- school clubs in Birmingham, sells

:14:53.:15:02.

recycled products donated by big business to make extra money.

:15:02.:15:05.

have been working with a small group of other voluntary providers

:15:05.:15:11.

to think about how we can put together a consortium bids. So, the

:15:11.:15:14.

signs are many charities will also need to be entrepreneurs if they're

:15:14.:15:17.

to function effectively. Still to come in tonight's

:15:17.:15:25.

programme: Shefali has all the details as autumn arrives.

:15:25.:15:28.

Yes, just in case you've forgotten what it feels like, and who's to

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:41.

blame you, then a timely reminder The Prime Minister gave his keynote

:15:41.:15:44.

speech to the Conservative party conference in Manchester today. In

:15:44.:15:47.

it he warned of the possibility of another global recession, but said

:15:47.:15:50.

he remained firmly committed to the Government's deficit reduction plan.

:15:50.:15:53.

Satnam Rana went to politically divided Dudley to find out what

:15:53.:15:58.

people there made of it. Dudley, the second largest town in

:15:58.:16:03.

the UK. It is also a town that's politically divided. In the north,

:16:03.:16:08.

MP Ian Austin holds the labour seat with a majority of 649. In Dudley

:16:08.:16:12.

South it is Chris Kelly who won the seat from Labour in the last

:16:12.:16:15.

General Election with a majority of 3,856, a seat Labour had held since

:16:15.:16:24.

1997. But will opinion be just as divided over David Cameron's

:16:24.:16:29.

keynote speech? Take the leader of Dudley Council, a local business

:16:29.:16:31.

leader, some students at Stourbridge College and their

:16:31.:16:40.

Principal gave their views. froze council tax this year, and

:16:41.:16:46.

his George said on Monday, we will freeze it again next year, too.

:16:46.:16:50.

do have some concerns because weld the subsidy is there we can manage

:16:50.:16:55.

at the funding. If it is removed, we will have to find the funding

:16:55.:17:00.

someone else. I am disgusted by the idea that we should aim for less

:17:00.:17:06.

for a child for a poor background than one from a rich one. It is

:17:06.:17:09.

important that children from deprived backgrounds to get a

:17:09.:17:15.

chance for exit - - get a chance for information. He did not mention

:17:15.:17:20.

the costs of universities. He'd did not mention their educational

:17:20.:17:25.

allowance, which was a fund that helped students who could not miss

:17:25.:17:32.

the early get to college. We must build a new economy, inventing,

:17:32.:17:36.

creating, exporting. I would have liked to have seen more about help

:17:36.:17:41.

for manufacturing businesses, encouraging exports. Also looking

:17:41.:17:46.

at changes to the tax structure perhaps to encourage businesses to

:17:46.:17:49.

innovate more. The Prime Minister warned against becoming paralysed

:17:49.:17:53.

by gloom and fear. In this room at least, that doesn't appear to be

:17:53.:17:57.

happening. Our Political Editor Patrick Burns

:17:57.:18:01.

is with us. Let's talk about how this speech will go down in places

:18:01.:18:04.

such as Dudley. There really isn't much to be optimistic about, is

:18:04.:18:12.

there? There is not. He accepts that. His words will strike a chord

:18:12.:18:17.

with the people in Dudley when he said that he knows what an anxious

:18:17.:18:20.

time it is for people when they turn on the news into reports of

:18:20.:18:25.

closures and job losses and rising household bills. But he was saying

:18:25.:18:30.

today is that you don't do anything about that a sinking back into a

:18:30.:18:36.

cant to culture. You don't degenerate into benefit dependency.

:18:36.:18:42.

If you can work, due do. There was an implied criticism of businesses

:18:42.:18:46.

not providing enough apprenticeships. We to understand

:18:46.:18:50.

that the government will push on things like that in the Autumn

:18:50.:18:53.

Statement next month. He had a message in his speech to people

:18:53.:18:57.

planning to go on strike next month in the so called Day of Action?

:18:57.:19:01.

understands their right to protest, he says, but public sector pensions

:19:01.:19:06.

are unaffordable. He said that people have to accept that people

:19:06.:19:11.

are living longer and it is not unreasonable for the taxpayer to

:19:11.:19:17.

ask a little bit more - - but to pay a little bit more. How do you

:19:17.:19:22.

feel the speech will have gone down in the Midland marginals? I think

:19:22.:19:25.

certain things will go down well. Getting public and private schools

:19:25.:19:30.

to work together, the revamped house building programme. The key

:19:30.:19:36.

thing will be people feel optimistic in 2015.

:19:36.:19:39.

Two of the region's best-known buildings have been put on a list

:19:39.:19:41.

of endangered architecture today. Birmingham's controversial Central

:19:41.:19:44.

Library has been included as a prime example of the British

:19:44.:19:46.

Brutalism school of design. The ruins of Coventry Cathedral have

:19:46.:19:49.

also been added to the World Monument Fund Watch List. It comes

:19:49.:19:53.

just days after it was revealed the cathedral is in danger of collapse.

:19:53.:19:59.

Joan Cummins reports. Today the ruins of St Michael's stand in the

:19:59.:20:02.

shadow of its post-war replacement a testament to the brutality of war,

:20:02.:20:04.

gutted in 1940 by a hail of incendiary bombs Coventry has

:20:04.:20:06.

rebuilt and remembered simultaneously, but time itself is

:20:06.:20:16.
:20:16.:20:20.

now taking its toll on the medieval sandstone. The old cathedral was

:20:20.:20:26.

never meant to be open to the elements on the insider. We have

:20:26.:20:34.

invested huge resources over recent years, but we have run out. Putting

:20:34.:20:37.

the ruins on an endangered watch list of the world monuments fund

:20:37.:20:40.

doesn't mean any extra cash, but does highlight the need to support

:20:40.:20:43.

our cultural heritage. Some things are of such importance that will be

:20:43.:20:47.

irresponsible not to look after them. The inheritance of our

:20:47.:20:51.

forefathers, especially on a site which talks about the collective

:20:51.:20:58.

suffering of people, an ongoing issue, but also a city of 400,000

:20:58.:21:03.

people of which this building is the hearts, that is important.

rifles? We've all heard of beer and skittles, but 100 years ago

Birmingham pubs played host to a very different sport. It was even

more popular than football, and it's still alive today, as Ian

sports that's rarely seen these days in pubs and clubs across the

Midlands. How times have changed. Back in the early 19 hundreds

virtually every pub in Birmingham had its own bell of target shooting

:22:48.:22:55.

60 years later, he's still got a keen eye on the target. When you

men were encouraged to improve their shooting following the Boer

Amongst them Jenny Boden, arguably the hottest shot at the Walton

The former Worcestershire and England pace bowler Graham Dilley

has died at the age of 52 following a short illness. During the late

:24:22.:24:25.

1980s, Dilley helped Worcestershire win four trophies in three years.

:24:25.:24:28.

The chief executive at New Road, David Leatherdale, paid tribute to

Dilley saying he played a big part in the club's success and he said

forecast. So far this week we've had a drop in temperature since

:24:52.:25:02.
:25:02.:25:05.

Monday but the values have still been above average. The extent of

:25:05.:25:08.

the drop will be far steeper tomorrow, just so that there's no

:25:08.:25:14.

mistaking that Autumn has at last arrived. Now we're going to start

:25:14.:25:17.

to see the changes from tonight as this band of rain that's currently

:25:17.:25:21.

across us starts to work its way in from the north-west. Some of it

:25:21.:25:31.
:25:31.:25:34.

will be heavy as the flickers of iridescent colour show. But once it

starts to clear the region we see a change in wind direction to north

:25:37.:25:40.

westerly and the origins are from a much colder northerly source so

:25:40.:25:43.

temperatures will drop to around eight celsius or slightly lower

than that. But it's the strength of the winds that prevent values from

:25:46.:25:49.

falling any lower. There'll be a few showers to end the night, but

:25:49.:25:52.

for most tomorrow starts dry. Although through the day showers

:25:52.:26:02.
:26:02.:26:07.

begin to pile in from the north- west. Some of them quite heavy.

:26:07.:26:13.

Hopefully we will have some dry weather over the weekend.
