Welcome to Midlands Today. The headlines: 100 days after the riots,

:00:09.:00:13.

anger over funding cuts to youth projects, many are in danger of

:00:13.:00:19.

folding. It is hard, desperately hard, and it is getting harder.

:00:19.:00:23.

Thieves and to the misery to householders whose homes have been

:00:23.:00:27.

wrecked by flooding. Like being in a war-zone, say

:00:27.:00:32.

residents, who face years of living side-by-side to boarding at the

:00:32.:00:38.

halls -- boarded-up homes. And the much loved ruins of

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:52.

Welcome to the start of the week here on Midlands Today. 100 days

:00:52.:00:57.

after the riots, a warning that youth services are in crisis. One

:00:57.:01:01.

youth worker says the young people she deal was wave are facing the

:01:01.:01:03.

toughest times in more than 25 years.

:01:03.:01:07.

We have spoken to 14 youth associations in the Midlands

:01:07.:01:11.

representing hundreds of voluntary organisations which have had their

:01:11.:01:16.

funding cut and fear their futures are under threat. To youth workers

:01:16.:01:20.

recognised for their outstanding contributions have spoken out to

:01:20.:01:25.

our special Correspondent. Bright police standing guard

:01:25.:01:30.

outside Birmingham's Mailbox Shopping Centre. The images of the

:01:30.:01:35.

riots in August, greed and consumerism. 100 days after the

:01:35.:01:40.

riots, what lessons, if any, are there to be learnt? I have been

:01:40.:01:44.

talking to people who were working with the next generation and I have

:01:44.:01:51.

also been listening to young people. The Stonehouse Gang, a youth club

:01:51.:01:55.

in Selly Oak. You are on your journey... Lesley Franklin is a

:01:55.:01:59.

human dynamo, constantly encouraging young people from every

:01:59.:02:05.

age group. This year she was awarded an MBE. Have funding of

:02:05.:02:13.

�20,000 has now been cut. It is as tough as ever. I do not know how it

:02:13.:02:20.

is going to get any easier. It is the 1970s, this is the Stonehouse

:02:20.:02:25.

Gang's founder Harry Webb. He was a newspaper journalist who set up the

:02:25.:02:29.

club in 1938 after seeing young people going through the courts

:02:29.:02:34.

accused of anti-social behaviour. For more than 70 years, the gang

:02:34.:02:38.

has changed young people's live for the better. For how much younger --

:02:38.:02:48.
:02:48.:02:49.

longer? It is frightening. How can we possibly a find the money that

:02:49.:02:54.

has been cut, not just for this year, but for every other year?

:02:55.:03:00.

Lincoln Moses is another MBE e hold up. His football teams have taken

:03:00.:03:04.

youngsters out of Birmingham's toughest estates. He is a

:03:04.:03:09.

despairing after losing his grant of �18,000. With the lack of funds,

:03:09.:03:13.

there is not much you can do to engage or empowered the young

:03:13.:03:18.

people. The young people will make the wrong decisions and they are

:03:18.:03:22.

very guilty of making the wrong decisions. 100 days on, what do

:03:22.:03:29.

young people think about the riots? I sat down with 15 and 16 year olds

:03:29.:03:32.

at Perry Beeches School in Great Barr. They have had classes

:03:32.:03:36.

discussing the issues and special assemblies. Many of these

:03:36.:03:39.

youngsters were told to stay indoors by their parents when the

:03:39.:03:44.

looting took place. I do not feel much sympathy for those in the

:03:44.:03:49.

riots because I thought it was cheap opportunism. People have

:03:49.:03:53.

improved. We are trying to build up our reputation, especially in our

:03:53.:03:57.

school and community. I felt embarrassed at the time that it was

:03:57.:04:04.

happening because you do not feel it is -- you do not feel proud it

:04:04.:04:07.

is happening in your country. Birmingham City Council did not

:04:07.:04:12.

want to take part in this report. They have had to cut �1.7 million

:04:12.:04:18.

from a youth service budget. They say that less than a third of under

:04:18.:04:22.

18-year-olds work involved in the riots. Although Hampton are looking

:04:22.:04:26.

to cut half a million pounds from its huge budget. Where the riots a

:04:26.:04:35.

blip or a sign of the Times? I feel people may riot again because I do

:04:35.:04:41.

not see many pragmatic changes and much difference made to their lives

:04:41.:04:48.

in the hundred days since the riots. I fear that but I would say, look,

:04:48.:04:52.

at let's get our young people on board. Every council in our region

:04:52.:04:57.

is consulting people over the scale of the cuts to youth services. It

:04:57.:05:05.

costs just �1.20 for a child to attend the Stonehouse Gang. That is

:05:05.:05:09.

money that these young people feel is well spent.

:05:10.:05:14.

We are joined now from Westminster by James Morris, the MP for

:05:14.:05:18.

Halesowen and Rowley Regis. He serves on the communities and local

:05:18.:05:23.

government select committee. Good evening. Is it time now to protect

:05:23.:05:28.

youth centres from the cuts? understand the importance of youth

:05:28.:05:32.

services but I do not think it is directly relevant to what happened

:05:32.:05:36.

in August. The riots in Birmingham were an act of organised

:05:36.:05:40.

criminality and we can't get away from that fact. It was not some

:05:40.:05:45.

kind of crisis to do with the youth. This was to do with organised

:05:45.:05:50.

criminality. Not condoning crime or criminals, or anything like that, I

:05:50.:05:56.

am looking at the situation. High youth unemployment, deprivation and

:05:56.:06:01.

boredom. Terrible things. All ingredients than it can lead people

:06:01.:06:05.

into crime. That is why the government has taken two

:06:05.:06:09.

initiatives. The Prime Minister announced a couple of weeks ago the

:06:09.:06:12.

establishment of a new unit which is going to be looking at turning

:06:12.:06:16.

round the lives of Britain's 120,000 Most Honourable families in

:06:16.:06:23.

Britain. The Home Secretary announced the implementation of a

:06:23.:06:29.

new plan for tackling youth violence -- the 100,000 most

:06:29.:06:34.

vulnerable families. We are taking issues of social breakdown in

:06:34.:06:38.

certain areas of society very seriously. We heard from youth

:06:38.:06:41.

workers who say it is the worst time they have ever seen for money

:06:42.:06:46.

and funding for youth projects. What are you going to do to inspire

:06:46.:06:51.

young people when it seems like everything is against them? They

:06:51.:06:56.

have not got a job and let us remember that not everyone is a

:06:56.:06:59.

natural self-starter. People need help. The statutory youth provision

:07:00.:07:04.

is under pressure but across our communities they are still a number

:07:04.:07:08.

of very innovative community and voluntary groups working with young

:07:08.:07:12.

people. We need to make sure that we harnessed that the vibrancy to

:07:12.:07:17.

tackle some of these problems to do with young people. It is not always

:07:17.:07:21.

the statutory provision that is the best in our countries. We need to

:07:21.:07:26.

find ways for the voluntary sector to innovate. That does not take

:07:26.:07:29.

away from the fact that the riots were organised criminality and we

:07:29.:07:32.

need to tackle some of the underlying problems, improving

:07:32.:07:37.

school discipline and getting back to supporting families. Thank you

:07:37.:07:43.

very much. Still to come, back to the day jobs

:07:44.:07:48.

for the Stourbridge striker whose FA Cup heroics won his team a

:07:48.:07:53.

second chance against the professionals in Plymouth.

:07:53.:07:57.

Thieves have been preying on flood victims whose homes were devastated

:07:57.:08:01.

by a burst water main. Wearing high-visibility jackets and posing

:08:01.:08:05.

as council workers, they have stolen possessions piled up on

:08:05.:08:10.

driveways. They start as a huge clear-up operation got under way.

:08:10.:08:15.

The latest dramatic pictures to emerge from the flight as a 2

:08:15.:08:19.

million litres of water from a burst water main were released on

:08:19.:08:23.

to this estate. Today as the huge clear-up operation continued, news

:08:23.:08:28.

that thieves had been targeting the flood victims with possessions

:08:28.:08:33.

piled high outside people's homes, it is reported that scrap the yet -

:08:33.:08:37.

- scrap dealers have been removing valuable items. The pensioner who

:08:37.:08:42.

lives here have lost a washing machines, tumble dryer and a fridge

:08:42.:08:47.

freezer from her drive. Dreadful. Disgusting, what people can do to

:08:48.:08:52.

the likes of anybody. The losses caused by the flood were big enough

:08:52.:08:58.

without the intervention of the fees. Around 150,000 homes were

:08:58.:09:03.

damaged. Sifting through the wreckage at her house, this lady is

:09:03.:09:07.

one of many residents forced to move out and stay with relatives.

:09:07.:09:12.

Even now, I keep waking up and think, it has not happened. The

:09:12.:09:16.

fright of waking up to water in the house and getting my seven-month-

:09:16.:09:20.

old out to safety, it was frightening. Although the water was

:09:20.:09:24.

in people's homes for a short period of time compared to flooding

:09:24.:09:30.

from, say, a Rivera, the damage is substantial and extensive and will

:09:30.:09:36.

take many weeks or months or even longer to prepare for -- repair.

:09:36.:09:40.

As council binmen help with the clear-up, the council leader called

:09:40.:09:44.

for assurances from the water company involved. We want them to

:09:44.:09:50.

give us an assurance, that all of the water mains are safe,

:09:50.:09:54.

maintained, so we do not see a repeat of this. This was without

:09:54.:09:59.

doubt a freak event. Everyone here is hoping that it also turns out to

:09:59.:10:05.

be a unique event. The family of a vulnerable disabled

:10:05.:10:10.

woman who was tortured and murdered have hit out at a report that says

:10:10.:10:13.

her death could not have been prevented. A serious case review

:10:13.:10:18.

into the death of 27-year-old Gemma Hayter concluded that there weren't

:10:18.:10:21.

numerous missed opportunities to help her. Her sister believes that

:10:21.:10:24.

the authorities could have done more.

:10:24.:10:28.

27-year-old Gemma Hayter was a vulnerable young adult who would

:10:28.:10:31.

endure abuse in return for friendship. There was such a

:10:31.:10:35.

situation which led to her death. She was systematically beaten

:10:35.:10:40.

before choking on and blood on this disused railway line in Rugby. In

:10:40.:10:44.

September, three of her so-called friends were jailed for murder. Two

:10:44.:10:48.

others were jailed for manslaughter. The serious case review looked into

:10:48.:10:52.

the role of various agencies who had dealing with verve including

:10:52.:10:56.

the police, local housing associations and health trusts. It

:10:56.:11:01.

found that no single agency had a full picture of what was going on.

:11:01.:11:05.

In short, there were missed opportunities. The report does not

:11:05.:11:09.

name or shame any individual agency but Gemma's family believe they

:11:09.:11:14.

were let down but Warwickshire social services. All of the

:11:14.:11:18.

instances that they have dug up and the times they could have helped

:11:18.:11:25.

her, it is devastating. It is maddening. It is incredibly sad.

:11:25.:11:30.

The report also stated there was no evidence that Gemma's murder could

:11:30.:11:36.

have been prevented or predicted. There were systems problems for

:11:36.:11:41.

some of the health services and for social care which we have already

:11:41.:11:45.

addressed by setting up a single point of access so all referrals

:11:45.:11:51.

for vulnerable adults come into one. And in fact, we now have a legally

:11:51.:11:55.

binding partnership arrangement. Warwickshire County Council has now

:11:55.:12:00.

written to Gemma's family offering an apology and say they are

:12:00.:12:06.

continuing to implement their findings.

:12:06.:12:08.

Luxury car maker Jaguar Land Rover has seen another rise in global

:12:08.:12:13.

sales. The number of vehicles sold rose 16% in the last three months.

:12:13.:12:19.

Sales in China continued to power ahead, up by a staggering 87%.

:12:19.:12:24.

However, sales in the UK and Europe remain flat because of continued

:12:24.:12:28.

economic worries. Our transport correspondent is at a Jaguar

:12:28.:12:32.

dealership tonight. This is more good news, after last week's

:12:32.:12:37.

decision to hire an extra 1000 workers at Solihull? Indeed, it is.

:12:37.:12:40.

There seems to be no stopping Jaguar Land Rover. If they are due

:12:41.:12:44.

to have their work force of around 20,000 people, more than they had

:12:44.:12:49.

before the recession. Growth seems to be rid -- powered by growth in

:12:49.:12:54.

China. Also, Russia, Brazil, and India. They have more money and

:12:54.:13:01.

they want a quality product. What about the other side of things?

:13:01.:13:06.

Should we be worried that sales in the UK are flat? 75% of everything

:13:06.:13:12.

that Jaguar Land Rover makes is exported. 12% goes to China. There

:13:12.:13:18.

are worries over the eurozone crisis. They wait and see approach

:13:18.:13:24.

being adopted by many people. There is also talk of a 10% drop in car

:13:24.:13:28.

sales in Europe next year. It is a worrying trend.

:13:28.:13:32.

Thank you. The government has been accused of abandoning Stoke-on-

:13:32.:13:37.

Trent after pulling the plug on a regeneration scheme. People living

:13:37.:13:40.

on a boarded up straight say it is like being in a war-torn country.

:13:40.:13:44.

The government says it will be providing a multi- million pounds

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:13:55.

Stoke-on-Trent has been livid -- living with boarded-up streets ever

:13:55.:13:59.

since the government pulled funding on a major programme to the new

:13:59.:14:03.

housing stock. It has left people like Florence Walker living in

:14:03.:14:09.

limbo. I've spent a fortune on my house over the years. Luckily my

:14:09.:14:13.

house is stopping, but the only thing is, if you look round the

:14:13.:14:18.

area, it is not a nice area any more. It looks as though I live in

:14:18.:14:22.

their group. Now a Manchester University professor has accused

:14:22.:14:27.

the government of giving up on the Midlands. Ideologically this

:14:27.:14:30.

government doesn't believe in intervention, it believes in sink

:14:30.:14:35.

or swim depending on how competitive places are. Large parts

:14:35.:14:38.

of the North of England and Midlands are being left to sink

:14:38.:14:42.

because they are not competitive. The government refused to be

:14:42.:14:46.

interviewed but issued a statement saying the regeneration programme

:14:46.:14:49.

in Stoke-on-Trent wasn't working but they would shortly be

:14:49.:14:53.

allocating a fund to help people who have been trapped in half

:14:53.:14:58.

demolished areas. Brendan Nevin thinks things are so bad in Stoke

:14:58.:15:02.

the end the auction people now have is to leave. Hundreds of millions

:15:02.:15:06.

of pounds worth of investment has been made which will be lost. It

:15:06.:15:10.

sent a message to local people if they want a good standard of life

:15:10.:15:18.

they have to leave. Mary will have more background on

:15:18.:15:24.

Inside Out tonight at 7:30pm. Tomorrow morning BBC Stoker will

:15:24.:15:27.

host a debate on why it regenerating the City is taking so

:15:27.:15:33.

long, that is from 11am. The Prime Minister has been in

:15:33.:15:37.

Birmingham to talk about trading opportunities with Holland. He

:15:37.:15:41.

joined the Dutch Prime Minister Marc Rutter on a visit to

:15:41.:15:44.

Birmingham Science Park, shown some of the new technologies being

:15:44.:15:49.

developed in the city. A survey of employers says Britain is facing a

:15:49.:15:54.

slow and painful loss of jobs but Mr Cameron says his government has

:15:54.:15:58.

plans to create employment. We are rolling up our sleeves and do --

:15:58.:16:04.

doing everything we can to promote growth and jobs. We have cut our

:16:04.:16:08.

corporation tax rate, investing in apprenticeships and making sure we

:16:08.:16:12.

focus on capital spending, roads and stations, and at the heart of

:16:13.:16:17.

it has to be the plan to keep a good plan for dealing with our

:16:17.:16:22.

debts and deficits. Still to come: preparing for the

:16:22.:16:26.

big moment, the school children who formed a choir and the first

:16:26.:16:31.

performance is live on television for Children In Need.

:16:31.:16:35.

Trading autumn's path, after a lovely weekend the gloom up from

:16:35.:16:45.
:16:45.:16:50.

last week returns. But for how Today it is an important date for

:16:50.:16:54.

Coventry. It is the anniversary of the blitz on the City which claimed

:16:54.:16:59.

more than 500 lives and destroyed the cathedral. Tonight the scheme

:16:59.:17:03.

is starting which is hoped will result in the cathedral becoming a

:17:03.:17:07.

space dedicated to civilians affected by war. It could also help

:17:07.:17:10.

preserve the ruins of the old cathedral and the ravages of the

:17:10.:17:19.

elements. Welcome to the atmospheric ruins of

:17:19.:17:24.

the medieval Coventry Cathedral. There has been a church on this

:17:24.:17:31.

site since the 13th century. On 14th November, 1940, 500 people

:17:31.:17:36.

lost their lives and the Cathedral was destroyed. Now the cathedral

:17:37.:17:42.

need to raise �1 million to restore and preserve the ruins for future

:17:42.:17:49.

generations. Tell me why do you really need this money? The ruins

:17:49.:17:54.

are the ruins. They are but they keep falling into disrepair. We had

:17:54.:17:57.

a big crack we discovered in the summer which threatened for part of

:17:57.:18:00.

the wall to collapse into the street which would mean we would

:18:00.:18:03.

have to close the book of the safety so we have to repair them

:18:03.:18:08.

and stabilise the in their current condition. Also to uncover some of

:18:08.:18:14.

their secrets. There was a big crowd under here. It would unveil

:18:14.:18:19.

another glory. You have become somewhat obsessed

:18:19.:18:23.

with Coventry Cathedral. What is it about the cathedral that leads you

:18:23.:18:28.

fire? It was voted on to a Walker World

:18:28.:18:31.

Monuments Watch a list of the most endangered sites in the world so we

:18:31.:18:37.

have a duty of care. You cannot help be moved by this place, it is

:18:37.:18:41.

a place of memorial, reconciliation, extraordinary medieval art which

:18:41.:18:45.

reminds us where Coventry was once one of the greatest cities of

:18:45.:18:49.

Britain. Tonight there will be a service at the new cathedral where

:18:49.:18:53.

all the plans for the future will be laid out. We will bring that

:18:53.:19:00.

back to you tonight. Non-League Stourbridge Town

:19:00.:19:03.

Football Club are celebrating a cash windfall tonight. They have

:19:03.:19:06.

just been told next week's FA Cup replay against Plymouth will be

:19:06.:19:11.

shown live on television. The �30,000 hope will get wouldn't pay

:19:11.:19:15.

a week's wages for many a Premier League favour -- player but the

:19:15.:19:19.

money will go a long way at Stourbridge. More than enough to

:19:19.:19:24.

buy some new shirts. Look closely, something is missing. Ever since

:19:24.:19:34.

the club was formed in 1876 there have been two Letter ares in

:19:34.:19:38.

Stourbridge. Officials were not impressed when they spotted the

:19:38.:19:42.

embroidery error. But they are now in the second round draw for the

:19:42.:19:50.

first time ever. Not embarrassing, it is something unique. It wouldn't

:19:50.:19:55.

have done at man United. Obviously not. The letter art may have been

:19:55.:20:03.

missing from the shirts but the initials RR went missing on the

:20:03.:20:08.

pitch. Ryan Rowe was back with the family firm creating a new driveway

:20:08.:20:13.

today. If he looked a bit tired, no wonder, Saturday's post-match party

:20:13.:20:15.

in Plymouth turned into an all- nighter and his workmates were

:20:15.:20:24.

there as well. It was a cup tie that they will never forget. First

:20:24.:20:28.

they were delighted when Stourbridge Ford back to equalise.

:20:28.:20:33.

Then they could hardly believe it when Ryan Rowe put them in front at

:20:33.:20:38.

2-1. Eight minutes from time, a penalty looked to have clinched a

:20:38.:20:43.

famous victory at 3-2. Sadly for 900 travelling fans Plymouth

:20:43.:20:49.

equalised two minutes from the end to four -- force a replay at

:20:49.:20:52.

Stourbridge a week tomorrow. great result. After we had will

:20:52.:20:55.

settle down and had a think, a lot of the lads were quietly

:20:56.:21:00.

disappointed. Came so close two minutes from the end. To score in

:21:00.:21:05.

front of the fans, pretty special. Especially on an occasion like that.

:21:05.:21:10.

So proud of him for scoring an Stourbridge town. Can they win the

:21:10.:21:19.

replay? Definitely. What was the atmosphere like? Brilliant.

We are talking Children In Need, one of the biggest charity events

:21:42.:21:47.

of the year and attracts one of the year's biggest television audiences.

:21:47.:21:51.

This Friday children from a Birmingham school will be singing

:21:51.:21:55.

live, nerve-racking enough, but the school choir has never performed in

:21:55.:22:03.

public before. Just eight years ago Heartlands

:22:03.:22:07.

High in Birmingham was a failing school, but now it has got a new

:22:07.:22:11.

name, an outstanding Ofsted report and a new school choir during

:22:11.:22:16.

opera's biggest performers yet. The pupils here have been rehearsing

:22:16.:22:20.

hard for their big day and that is just as well, they are part of a

:22:21.:22:26.

much bigger project performing live on BBC One on Friday night. They

:22:26.:22:36.
:22:36.:22:36.

will be performing to the whole nation at Aston Hall in Birmingham.

:22:36.:22:39.

They have been so enthusiastic. The learning process of the song has

:22:40.:22:43.

been really interesting. They have really enjoyed it. It has been a

:22:43.:22:47.

wonderful experience. You have to wait until Friday to find out what

:22:47.:22:50.

they will be singing but the People's thinks it will make an

:22:51.:22:57.

impression. It is about staying strong, holding on. What these

:22:57.:23:02.

children need to be doing, St stay strong and be brave. Career and,

:23:02.:23:11.

don't give up. -- telling them to carry on. Watching their little

:23:11.:23:16.

faces, they looked like they were really enjoying it. I am nervous,

:23:16.:23:20.

but I thought with all this hard work I have put in it will pay off

:23:20.:23:25.

at the end. People will be excited but we will be a bit nervous. We

:23:25.:23:28.

will be fine. I will be backstage with them on

:23:29.:23:32.

the night and I thought I'd better check they are ready. On Friday
