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

:00:49.:00:51.

BBC. Tonight - police investigate an

:00:51.:00:53.

abortion clinic following claims doctors agreed to carry out

:00:54.:00:59.

terminations on the basis of the unborn babies' sex.

:00:59.:01:01.

The Department of Health's also involved in the inquiry after the

:01:01.:01:04.

Calthorpe Clinic in Edgbaston in Birmingham was issued with a

:01:04.:01:07.

Warning Notice following an inspection. Our health

:01:07.:01:14.

correspondent Michele Paduano has the details.

:01:14.:01:18.

Outside the Calthorpe Clinic today, religious campaigners maintained a

:01:18.:01:22.

vigil against abortion throughout Lent. For them, abortion due to sex

:01:22.:01:27.

is just another wrong. It shows the mentality people have, that the

:01:27.:01:31.

child is a product, it is something that would determine for ourselves

:01:31.:01:36.

and we choose and to elect for ourselves rather than a gift to us.

:01:36.:01:40.

That just shows how widespread this is now. Abortion is available on

:01:40.:01:45.

demand. The Calthorpe Clinic in Birmingham was caught on camera

:01:45.:01:50.

Henin and -- undercover investigation. This doctor was told

:01:50.:02:00.
:02:00.:02:07.

the baby wasn't wanted because it In a separate development, the gay

:02:08.:02:13.

equality development has made two inspections following a tip-off. I

:02:13.:02:18.

understand that the Department of Health has been informed. The

:02:18.:02:22.

police have been asked to investigate all areas of concern.

:02:23.:02:28.

If this has happened, not only is it a criminal act, but it entail

:02:28.:02:33.

the professionals deliberately falsifying the reports, which

:02:33.:02:36.

necessarily accompany any termination of pregnancy. It is a

:02:36.:02:39.

shocking thing to have happened, we will follow it up urgently and

:02:39.:02:43.

thoroughly. When scanning Beefeaters, staff are where the

:02:44.:02:47.

agenda may be an issue, and do not routinely tell the mother the

:02:47.:02:52.

baby's sex. Whilst we wouldn't actively looked to sex a baby, if

:02:52.:02:58.

it is something that is easily seen, and the woman once the information,

:02:58.:03:02.

it is not something we would deny at any time. The Calthorpe Clinic

:03:02.:03:05.

says it is conducting its own internal investigation. It cannot

:03:05.:03:15.

say any more at this stage. What happens to the clinic while these

:03:15.:03:21.

investigations are under way? just wandered into the clinic and

:03:21.:03:25.

spoken to the general manager. She insists it is business as usual. So

:03:25.:03:29.

whatever has happened, it has not been so serious that they ever to

:03:29.:03:33.

close anything down. This clinic has been in existence by the 40

:03:33.:03:37.

years, deals with thousands of patients across the Midlands, both

:03:37.:03:41.

in Birmingham and Wolverhampton and Stoke-on-Trent. The one thing we do

:03:41.:03:45.

know is that the doctor himself has been suspended pending their

:03:45.:03:50.

investigation. Early indications along these investigations could

:03:50.:03:56.

take? There are three separate investigations. The care quality

:03:56.:04:00.

commission, that could be over fairly quickly. They talk about a

:04:00.:04:05.

report being out shortly, it could be weeks or months. With respect to

:04:05.:04:08.

the police and General Medical Council investigations, if there is

:04:08.:04:12.

substance to them, they could take considerable time to investigate.

:04:12.:04:16.

It is usual that if there are to be charges, it could be years rather

the mumps. -- than months. A still to come, could a work experience

:04:25.:04:35.
:04:35.:04:38.

scheme ease the problem? The distraught family of a man who

:04:38.:04:41.

went missing within hours of his twenty first birthday celebration

:04:41.:04:43.

are tonight asking the public for help in finding him.

:04:43.:04:46.

Tom Haddock had enjoyed a celebration family lunch at his

:04:46.:04:49.

mother's home. He left for a night out with friends in Lichfield, but

:04:49.:04:51.

apparently never arrived. Police are now combing the area and

:04:51.:04:54.

appealing for information as to his whereabouts.

:04:54.:04:58.

A specialist team of officers searched the canal near Fradley.

:04:58.:05:02.

Tom Haddock has been missing since last Saturday, where he headed off

:05:02.:05:07.

for a night out. At home, his family face an agonising wait.

:05:07.:05:13.

is really hard, because your friends are contacting all the time,

:05:13.:05:21.

and you just can't... He has never done this before. He would stay

:05:21.:05:23.

over at a friend's house may be overnight and come back in the

:05:24.:05:27.

morning, but he has never been gone for this long without contact. It

:05:27.:05:32.

is not like him. A Facebook page is helping the search. Tom's family

:05:32.:05:37.

say he had thoroughly enjoyed a lunch to celebrate his 21st. That

:05:37.:05:41.

night it is it off to Lichfield, deciding against waiting for a taxi

:05:41.:05:45.

at home. It looks like he didn't get there, looks like changed his

:05:45.:05:50.

mind. I don't understand it, he was so determined to go to Lichfield.

:05:50.:05:58.

He got Picts from friends saying it where they were there not stop --.

:05:58.:06:02.

He was last seen here at Fradley junction on Saturday night, when he

:06:02.:06:08.

spoke to a boat on and asked for directions to Bromley Hayes. It is

:06:09.:06:13.

and how's walk along the canal towpath. The mystery doesn't end

:06:13.:06:18.

there. His sister had a missed call at 10:30pm, and a friend received a

:06:18.:06:23.

call at 2:30am, but was into noisy and atmosphere to hear it properly.

:06:23.:06:28.

From the moment he has gone missing, I have had a dedicated search team,

:06:28.:06:32.

both land and water search. Currently we have a water search in

:06:32.:06:37.

the canal, by the specialist shallow water team. Tom was

:06:37.:06:41.

planning another celebration near his father's home near Cheltenham

:06:41.:06:46.

this weekend. I am really confused by these missing hours. If I knew

:06:46.:06:51.

where he was, I could deal with it, but just not knowing where he is is

:06:51.:06:56.

just destroying us. Tonight, police confirmed no evidence had been

:06:56.:07:04.

found in the canal. The search is now widening.

:07:04.:07:07.

And if you have any information, please call the new police 101

:07:07.:07:11.

number. And the grieving family of a man

:07:11.:07:14.

who was killed when his moped collided with a lorry in

:07:14.:07:16.

Staffordshire have appealed for the driver to come forward. Benjamin

:07:17.:07:19.

Warrington, who was 24, was driving along the A38 near Streethay early

:07:20.:07:27.

on Tuesday morning when he was hit by a tipper truck which didn't stop.

:07:27.:07:32.

Could anyone else was travelling on the road on Tuesday 21st February

:07:32.:07:37.

at 525, who thinks they may have information, please contact the

:07:37.:07:43.

investigation team. A special plea goes out of the lorry driver of the

:07:43.:07:49.

HTV to come forward. Benjamin is in our thoughts and will be badly

:07:49.:07:57.

missed. Hundreds of unpaid work experience placements are being

:07:57.:08:00.

offered in Wolverhampton in a new attempt to tackle rising youth

:08:00.:08:04.

unemployment. Despite the economic climate, local businesses are being

:08:04.:08:08.

urged to find time and money to nurture the next generation of

:08:08.:08:17.

workers. And time is pressing - with a sharp increase in the number

:08:17.:08:23.

of 18-24 year olds out of work. Is Mr White House available?

:08:24.:08:26.

After being unemployed for three months, Jess Williams took a gamble

:08:26.:08:29.

on unpaid work experience - the 21- year-old impressed and landed a job

:08:30.:08:34.

at Wolverhampton Homes. I felt that the whole experience really

:08:34.:08:39.

benefited me. It led me to feel I am significant and I can make a

:08:39.:08:43.

difference. It enabled me to gain all the skills I need to help me

:08:43.:08:47.

gain employment. For the first time, businesses in Wolverhampton have

:08:47.:08:49.

signed up to offer hundreds of eight-week work placements. And

:08:49.:08:54.

this is why. Queues around the block at City jobs fairs, and the

:08:54.:08:59.

busiest Jobcentres in the West Midlands. If you are aged between

:08:59.:09:02.

18 and 24, chances are you know someone who is claiming jobseeker's

:09:02.:09:07.

allowance. In Wolverhampton, around 15% of that age group to just that.

:09:07.:09:13.

And that is twice the national average. So can unpaid work lift

:09:13.:09:22.

Wolverhampton's 1 is? -- won his? This week, campaigners dubbed the

:09:22.:09:26.

government's unpaid work scheme slave labour. Tesco have since

:09:26.:09:29.

decided to offer pay. The government insists it is helping

:09:29.:09:34.

people off benefit and into work. It is to give young people an

:09:34.:09:38.

opportunity. The Labour MP behind a separate Wolverhampton scheme says

:09:39.:09:43.

it is voluntary. No one has to take part in this. We are making

:09:43.:09:47.

opportunities available for young people. We hope they will take part.

:09:47.:09:51.

Here is a chance if you want to take one. This is not about press-

:09:51.:09:59.

ganging people into doing something. Low Hill - one of the most deprived

:09:59.:10:02.

parts of Wolverhampton - will be among the first areas to be

:10:02.:10:04.

targeted. We see, unfortunately, in the homes we manage, many people

:10:04.:10:09.

who have been without a job in some time, and in some cases their

:10:09.:10:13.

parents have to. So it is ambition in the next year to target some of

:10:13.:10:18.

these placements to our tenants's sons and daughters. Jess Williams

:10:18.:10:23.

is lucky - not all work experience ends in a job. But a little goes a

:10:23.:10:30.

long way in a city fearing a lost generation of workers.

:10:30.:10:33.

As the Government continues to push through its health reforms, the BBC

:10:33.:10:35.

Sunday Politics programme has discovered the NHS in this region

:10:35.:10:41.

needs to save almost �2 billion by 2015.

:10:41.:10:45.

It is because of the increasing elderly population, the rising

:10:45.:10:53.

price of drugs and new technologies. Our reporter has this.

:10:53.:10:57.

Here in the West Midlands, the NHS streets around 3 million people

:10:57.:11:02.

every month. David Brooks is in New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton for

:11:02.:11:09.

a fairly routine hernia operation. But his -- it is not the first time

:11:09.:11:13.

he has gone under the knife. I have had a cancer operation, heart

:11:13.:11:17.

problems, I have had bowel problems which are came in for last year,

:11:17.:11:24.

which I now continuing with the treatment, G two that. -- due to

:11:24.:11:28.

that. That is going to be repaired. Who knows what will happen in the

:11:28.:11:33.

future? At 60, Mr Brooks seems to have made plenty of use of the NHS,

:11:33.:11:38.

but with the average age for men in the West Midlands now 77 and one in

:11:38.:11:45.

81, the chances are he will lead the NHS in the future. The NHS, the

:11:45.:11:50.

problem with it is because we are living longer, more of us are

:11:50.:11:54.

needing expensive treatment and operations like these. But our

:11:54.:11:57.

demand for better health care doesn't stop in the operating

:11:57.:12:01.

theatre. There are around a dozen staff working in this laboratory,

:12:01.:12:06.

making up cancer drugs like these, and they're not cheap. Add all the

:12:06.:12:10.

cost and the fact there is less money in the coffers, and you get

:12:10.:12:15.

the kind of pressure that means that by 2015, we need to save �1.8

:12:15.:12:20.

billion from the health care budget in our region. I have noticed in

:12:20.:12:25.

the last four or five years how technology and the advancement is

:12:25.:12:29.

increasing, therefore the cost is increasing. We have got to be able

:12:29.:12:34.

to find ways of saving money to be able to keep meeting that demand.

:12:34.:12:38.

Health Wise, here in the West Midlands, we are living longer,

:12:38.:12:42.

healthier lives, but financially, it seems the NHS is a victim of its

:12:42.:12:52.

But we are joined by Patrick Burns. The first of all, how do these cuts

:12:52.:12:56.

square with the government's promise to bring face the NHS?

:12:56.:13:04.

Earth earth -- ring fence. They are having to produce these

:13:04.:13:08.

huge amounts of money from within those existing budgets to foot the

:13:08.:13:13.

bill for all these hi-tech, high cost of treatment that an ageing

:13:13.:13:17.

population needs. It is really that they are victims of their run

:13:17.:13:22.

success. This is coming at a time when the

:13:22.:13:27.

government has got a fight on its hands with the health bill.

:13:27.:13:30.

It is embroiled in the House of Lords, and we are hearing

:13:30.:13:34.

speculation that some Liberal Democrat MPs are siding with Labour,

:13:34.:13:40.

privately, saying that it should be dropped. On the wider front here,

:13:40.:13:45.

help is one of those issues at the last election on which the

:13:45.:13:48.

Conservatives regained the combatants of what we would

:13:48.:13:52.

probably call Middle England, they won a 15 it seats in our part of

:13:52.:13:58.

the country. What happens next? What

:13:58.:14:03.

developments will there be in the next few days?

:14:03.:14:06.

Fee the Royal College of Physicians is holding a meeting on Monday to

:14:06.:14:11.

discuss whether or not they should come out against the proposals. I

:14:11.:14:14.

will be talking to a Birmingham hospital consultant who has

:14:14.:14:21.

triggered that meeting on Sunday. Sunday Politics is on Sunday on BBC

:14:21.:14:24.

One. Hundreds of children are taking

:14:24.:14:28.

part in the country's largest survey into how a computer games

:14:28.:14:32.

and a lack of sleep on having an impact on childhood obesity.

:14:32.:14:37.

One quarter of 11 year-olds in hour region are overweight. The charity

:14:37.:14:40.

behind the study says many face a future of heart disease and

:14:40.:14:45.

diabetes. It is the first lesson of the day,

:14:45.:14:50.

and one which could help change the health of the nation's children.

:14:50.:14:52.

Sixth-formers at Bordesley Green Girls' School in Birmingham

:14:52.:14:55.

supervise younger pupils in the country's largest-ever study into

:14:55.:15:00.

the effect of sleep deprivation on adolescence. It is linked to

:15:00.:15:03.

obesity and how much technology is to blame.

:15:03.:15:07.

We are no longer just interested in TV viewing, we are looking at

:15:07.:15:14.

laptop and internet use, social networking, video gaming, reading,

:15:14.:15:18.

music. The World Health Organisation

:15:18.:15:21.

estimates the meet -- rate of the Beastie in children has tripled in

:15:21.:15:31.
:15:31.:15:31.

20 years. In the Midlands, one quarter of 11-year-olds are obese.

:15:31.:15:35.

Sleep deprivation and obesity could be linked through a number of ways.

:15:35.:15:40.

There is life style, a lack of sleep leading to a snacking and

:15:40.:15:45.

unhealthy eating culture. There is also an interesting hormonal

:15:45.:15:48.

factors, and we know there are certain hormones which change in

:15:48.:15:54.

our bodies if we lack sleep, and they could also play a part.

:15:54.:15:57.

These watches will be fitted to 800 children across Birmingham, which

:15:57.:16:02.

they will wear for a week. It will monitor their sleep

:16:02.:16:07.

patterns, for example, how often they wake up in the night. They

:16:07.:16:13.

will also fill in this diary. I go to sleep at 9:30pm, and I

:16:13.:16:19.

think I get a lot of sleep. I watch TV before I go to bed, and

:16:19.:16:24.

I go on the laptop. It is an eye-opener for the

:16:24.:16:29.

children themselves to see what factors affect their sleep.

:16:29.:16:33.

They will be monitored for six years. If the links are confirmed,

:16:33.:16:38.

researchers hope it will lead many to make lifestyle changes.

:16:38.:16:43.

Still ahead, the countdown continues to the London Olympics,

:16:43.:16:48.

and we are with young athletes at the Black Country Games.

:16:48.:16:53.

And it has been a week of rising temperatures. Coleshill was the hot

:16:53.:17:03.
:17:03.:17:09.

spot yesterday, but what goes up I thought he would say that!

:17:10.:17:14.

Find a see -- finally some news on a new manager at Wolves.

:17:14.:17:20.

The search is finally over. At least until May. Mick McCarthy's

:17:20.:17:23.

right back -- right hand Madhur Terry Connor has got the job until

:17:23.:17:28.

the end of the season. Did has been a frustrating time for Taoiseach

:17:28.:17:31.

fans, but today, chairman Steve Morgan insisted the club has

:17:31.:17:37.

nothing to be embarrassed about. Wolves.

:17:37.:17:43.

They have searched high and low to the north and the self-. The a

:17:43.:17:47.

couple have turned them down. But finally they found the answer

:17:47.:17:54.

on their own doorstep. We set out to find the right man,

:17:54.:17:59.

and we believe we have. Certainly until the end of the season. He has

:17:59.:18:02.

been in the Premier League for the last three seasons and was there a

:18:02.:18:07.

few years ago, so we have a man with Premier League experience.

:18:07.:18:10.

It is a great honour to be asked to look after the team for the

:18:10.:18:19.

remainder of the season. We have unfinished business. We have done

:18:19.:18:21.

two seasons where we have managed to survive, and we want to make it

:18:21.:18:25.

three. If Terry Connor was almost

:18:25.:18:29.

speechless, so were many Taoiseach fans, who wonder why some

:18:30.:18:34.

candidates are not willing to run over hot coals to get the top job

:18:34.:18:42.

at Molineux. -- Taoiseach. How frustrating is is that the

:18:42.:18:47.

other people do not want the job? There have been a lot of untruths

:18:47.:18:52.

spoken in the press over the last 10 days or so. They have been some

:18:52.:18:56.

complete rubbish that has been printed.

:18:56.:19:00.

How much the chief executive and chairman of argued to the contrary,

:19:00.:19:04.

the efforts to recruit a new manager had appeared ham-fisted at

:19:04.:19:09.

best to many supporters. But now, after 12 days of speculation, they

:19:09.:19:13.

have finally chosen the sitting tenant all along.

:19:13.:19:17.

I think the process we followed has been a really diligent,

:19:17.:19:22.

professional approach in appointing what is, as Steve has said, a

:19:22.:19:25.

really important appointment. I have nothing to be embarrassed

:19:25.:19:29.

about, this club has got nothing to be embarrassed about. This club has

:19:29.:19:33.

got everything to be proud about. We have handled things right and

:19:33.:19:40.

proper all along. The players say that -- and Terry,

:19:40.:19:46.

says he has not yet earned the right to be called gaffer. -- Terry

:19:46.:19:50.

Connor. The internet has been alive with

:19:50.:19:54.

comments from fans over the last few days. There has been a lot of

:19:54.:19:59.

criticism. Lot of criticism on Facebook from

:19:59.:20:06.

the Wolves fans. One person says they are a pathetic,

:20:06.:20:10.

laughing stock and were in favour of sacking Mick McCarthy, but to do

:20:11.:20:16.

it without a plan is a shocking. Andrew says it is a joke. No

:20:16.:20:20.

leadership or direction, and he accuses the club of trying to do it

:20:20.:20:28.

on the cheap. There is one from Christopher. He

:20:28.:20:32.

says he does not want to judge Connor without giving him a chance,

:20:32.:20:42.
:20:42.:20:42.

and he will support him because he supports Taoiseach. -- Wolves.

:20:42.:20:46.

The very best coverage of all our teams will be tomorrow on your BBC

:20:46.:20:51.

local radio station. It starts at 2 o'clock.

:20:51.:20:54.

One of the biggest motocross events of the year is being held in

:20:54.:20:59.

Shropshire on Sunday. Riders from 15 countries will travel to

:20:59.:21:02.

Hawkstone Park for the Hawk International event. Local riders

excitement for Ray and Nathan, young riders facing a daunting test

:21:20.:21:25.

on Sunday. Both have been British junior

:21:25.:21:30.

champions, but they have got different reasons to be nervous.

:21:30.:21:34.

23-year-old Ray Rowson is from Shrewsbury, but always seems to get

injured at Hawkstone Park. I have broken my back twice, my

wrist, my collarbone, everything, really. But I enjoy it, so I will

not stop. It does not would be off. 17-year-old Nathan Watson's concern

that is because this is his first season in the senior ranks.

It will be a big jump. I am used to racing 16 year-olds and 17 year-

olds, adding up to the professionals is a big step. They

:22:06.:22:11.

are a lot rougher. The middle of riders have had some

early practice. 120 of the world's best riders will be here at the

weekend. It is recognised as the top

international in Europe, and it creates the biggest crowds, and the

:22:26.:22:32.

top riders love coming to England, and Hawkstone Park.

:22:32.:22:37.

Up to 7000 people are expected to come here on Sunday, just do not

:22:37.:22:45.

expect a quiet day in the country. You are not stuck for motorsport in

Shropshire, because an institution that has been going for a quarter

of this century is ending this weekend. But it is Telford Ice

speedway. It has been going since 1986. The redevelopment of the ice

rink in Telford means it will no longer be suitable for speedway

Country Games. I really enjoyed it, especially

:23:46.:23:50.

coming out to play sport and playing sports that I love.

:23:50.:23:57.

It has been brilliant, how many people there actually are.

:23:57.:24:01.

I like bouncing the ball and catching it. That was the best

:24:01.:24:04.

thing. From volleyball to netball, rugby

:24:04.:24:09.

to running, just some of the sport taking place. These youngsters have

I was watching cricket earlier. It is only about six weeks and still

Springer this weekend. But it is still only late February. We will

see temperatures dropping a way through the next couple of days, so

:25:38.:25:43.

I think to some things up, yes, it will feel cool, but there will be

some sunny spells. That cool where there is working in it from the

:25:57.:26:02.

but behind the cold front, there is some colder air starting to work in.

:26:02.:26:06.

That will be the case through this evening and tonight, so

:26:06.:26:10.

temperatures could drop below enough for a touch of frost. But

:26:10.:26:15.

further south we will hold on to the remnants of the weather front.

:26:15.:26:19.

There may even be a bit of rain. We will lose the front of tomorrow

could be some frost into Sunday, but Sunday is another fine day.

:26:40.:26:46.

There is a bit more cloud in the afternoon. Temperatures again will

be good. If you off to the motocross event at Hawkstone Park

:26:50.:26:58.

in Shropshire, it should be dry with some cloud by the afternoon.

:26:58.:27:02.

You can see the dip in the temperatures through the weekend.

:27:02.:27:06.

Watch what happens as we go into next week. They will start to rise
