British thriller to be filmed in Birmingham. And the weather ips not

:00:53.:00:57.

looking very exciting. Is there light at the end of the tunnel? I'll

:00:57.:01:07.
:01:07.:01:13.

tell you later. Good evening. "No one is above the law." That's the

:01:13.:01:16.

warning from the Health Secretary today, as a police review has

:01:16.:01:18.

identified up to 300 deaths at Stafford Hospital which may have

:01:19.:01:21.

been caused by criminal neglect. The investigation, which will last

:01:21.:01:23.

several months, will be assessing each patient's treatment for gross

:01:24.:01:30.

negligence. Corporate manslaughter charges will also be considered, but

:01:30.:01:33.

only for patients who died after April, 2008. Our Health

:01:33.:01:36.

Correspondent Michele Paduano reports. Gillian Astbury's death in

:01:36.:01:43.

2007 is the only one so far to have been fully investigated. In 2010,

:01:44.:01:47.

her full time carer was told by the Crown Prosecution that no one person

:01:47.:01:51.

could be prosecuted because so many staff had failed her. Gillian was

:01:51.:01:54.

diabetic but hadn't been given insulin. He welcomed the fresh

:01:54.:01:56.

investigation into neglect Following the public inquiry, Staffordshire

:01:56.:01:58.

police headed a multi-agency investigation into 4,300 deaths at

:01:58.:02:06.

the hospital between 2005 and 2009. I hope it leads to many of these

:02:06.:02:16.

other families who do not know the truth of their loved ones' death, I

:02:16.:02:26.
:02:26.:02:31.

hope that it will lead to the truth coming out. They are now focusing on

:02:31.:02:38.

up to 300 cases where neglect may have played a part. They're

:02:38.:02:41.

examining whether there is any new information which has come to light

:02:41.:02:44.

which could lead to a previous criminal investigation being

:02:45.:02:48.

re-opened, or to a new investigation. If we get to this

:02:48.:02:54.

stage, our next step will be to establish if there is a potential

:02:54.:03:00.

for criminal charges. manslaughter charges, the police

:03:00.:03:04.

have to prove their has been a gross failure in care which led to the

:03:04.:03:08.

death. The police are examining the possibility of manslaughter after

:03:08.:03:13.

after April 2000le, corporate manslaughter. But they have to look

:03:13.:03:21.

at individual deaths and that makes it difficult to get a prosecution.

:03:21.:03:24.

There's pressure from Government. Today, the Health Secretary added

:03:24.:03:31.

his voice to the Prime Minister's that people should be accountable.

:03:31.:03:34.

They're talking to relatives, but no one is above the law and it is

:03:35.:03:40.

important that justice is done. solicitors firms representing the

:03:40.:03:46.

families, its been a long time coming. Why people at the top

:03:46.:03:50.

weren't recognising why things were going wrong and that Igs what many

:03:50.:03:54.

of the families want to be investigated. Ron Street knows the

:03:54.:03:56.

Health and Safety Executive are currently investigating Gillian's

:03:56.:04:06.
:04:06.:04:07.

death. He still hopes that some form of justice will prevail. Coming up

:04:07.:04:10.

later in the programme: A U-turn on the railways, Virgin are told they

:04:10.:04:17.

can't run a direct service between Shrewsbury and London. Coventry City

:04:18.:04:21.

Football Club will be able to play rent-free at the Ricoh Arena next

:04:21.:04:24.

season. The offer comes from the stadium owners, ACL, who are also

:04:24.:04:27.

believed to be making a bid themselves to buy the club from the

:04:27.:04:31.

administrators. CCFC Limited has been in administration since March,

:04:31.:04:36.

with debts of �60 million. Potential buyers have until Thursday to submit

:04:36.:04:43.

their final bid, this deadline has been extended twice. But the actual

:04:43.:04:46.

team comes under the control of Coventry City Holdings which is not

:04:46.:04:52.

in administration. It owns the contracts of the manager Steven

:04:52.:04:56.

Pressley and his squad. So who will be playing at the RICOH at the start

:04:56.:05:01.

of the new football season? Ian Winter reports. This time last year

:05:01.:05:07.

they were getting ready to host Olympic football and the pitch was

:05:07.:05:11.

perfect. But last month the groundsman left to work instead for

:05:11.:05:18.

the stadium owners, ACL. Same job, different gaffer. Today, we couldn't

:05:18.:05:28.
:05:28.:05:28.

film the pitch, because next week Bruce Springsteen is playing here.

:05:28.:05:34.

ACL don't want to be seen to be forcing Coventry from the city.

:05:34.:05:39.

is not about us being the good or bad guys. It is the home of

:05:39.:05:45.

Coventry. We want to to take the pressure off and give comfort to the

:05:45.:05:54.

league and the administrator. arena is owned by ACL who are part

:05:54.:06:04.
:06:04.:06:18.

owned by the council. The council contracts. The owner has bought into

:06:19.:06:22.

a long-term vision which creates value and they will realise that

:06:22.:06:26.

value and will sell at some staining. This would be the worst

:06:26.:06:31.

time to sell. As the boss will tell you here next week, this complicated

:06:31.:06:39.

Coventry soap opera was born to run and run and run! And we can join Ian

:06:39.:06:42.

in Coventry now, this does seem to give some hope that football will be

:06:43.:06:45.

staying in the city. This does seem to suggest that football will be

:06:45.:06:55.
:06:55.:06:56.

staying in the city? You would like to think so. ACL have informed the

:06:56.:07:00.

league and so Coventry should be able to play here in August. Let's

:07:00.:07:07.

talk to the Secretary of the Sky Blue Trust. What is your reaction?

:07:07.:07:12.

It is positive news, if we're in administration, we will be playing

:07:12.:07:15.

here. We would prefer not to be in administration come the start of the

:07:15.:07:21.

season and we hope we are out of it. The deadline for bids is close, what

:07:21.:07:26.

qualities should the administrators look for? Someone that will bring us

:07:26.:07:29.

success, stability, something we haven't had for a long time.

:07:29.:07:34.

Somebody that owled give us a winning -- would give us a winning

:07:34.:07:38.

team would be nice and would marry up the two sides, the arena and the

:07:38.:07:42.

club and develop the local area. With supporter in put as well?

:07:42.:07:48.

that is very important. We need some supporter in put on the board.

:07:48.:07:53.

have attended a couple of fans' forums, have you been impressed

:07:53.:08:00.

have been a pointless exercise, we haven't learned anything new. And I

:08:00.:08:04.

just think... It wasted a lot of fans' time. Are you more confident

:08:04.:08:11.

about the future? No really, no. More confident about the start of

:08:11.:08:17.

season if we are still in administration and we will have

:08:17.:08:21.

10,000 here rather than a thousand. But hopefully we don't get that far.

:08:21.:08:31.
:08:31.:08:34.

Thank you. The Tedline for bids is midday on Thursday. -- dead line.

:08:34.:08:37.

court's heard claims that a young mother from Wolverhampton tried to

:08:37.:08:40.

kill her newborn baby by throwing her down the rubbish chute of a

:08:40.:08:43.

tower block. Last September, the baby girl, who can't be named for

:08:43.:08:46.

legal reasons, fell from the fifth floor and suffered severe head and

:08:46.:08:48.

brain injuries. Her mother, 24-year-old Jaymin Abdulrahman,

:08:48.:08:50.

originally from Iraq, denies attempted murder. Sarah Falkland was

:08:50.:08:53.

in court today. Sarah, some harrowing details on the opening day

:08:53.:09:01.

of this trial. Yes a tragic picture of how the child was found swaddled

:09:01.:09:09.

in pink material, as if she were a doll on this rubbish chute. The jury

:09:09.:09:14.

were shown 3-D imagery of how the baby could have fallen down the

:09:14.:09:20.

chute. It was 44 foot drop and the test dummy was slammed down the

:09:20.:09:25.

walls of chute. The prosecution said this was like being in a car crash

:09:25.:09:30.

at 30mph without a seat belt. do the prosecution allege? They have

:09:30.:09:34.

spent most of the day tearing apart Jaymin Abdulrahman's witness

:09:34.:09:39.

statement. She said she was, and the child were the victim of a

:09:39.:09:42.

kidnapping and somebody grabbed her and taken the child. The prosecution

:09:42.:09:46.

say that is a work of fiction and she put the child down the chute

:09:46.:09:50.

with the intention of killing her. What will happen now? Well briefly

:09:50.:09:55.

let's get the charges down, she is denying a charge not only of

:09:55.:09:59.

attempted murder, but grievous bodily harm and grievous bodily harm

:09:59.:10:08.

with intent. The prosecution alleged the case will probably hinge on

:10:08.:10:14.

psychiatric evidence. The trial will last until next week. Thank you. The

:10:14.:10:16.

health regulator Monitor is investigating the South Warwickshire

:10:17.:10:19.

NHS Foundation Trust over a persistent breach of its A&E

:10:19.:10:24.

targets. The Trust, which runs Warwick Hospital, is investigating

:10:24.:10:27.

failures to meet the A&E four-hour waiting time target. The regulator

:10:27.:10:33.

will assess what's being done to shorten the waiting time. Eight

:10:34.:10:36.

green spaces in Stoke-on-Trent could soon be turned into wildflower

:10:36.:10:40.

meadows. The City Council and Staffordshire Wildlife Trust want to

:10:40.:10:46.

create the areas to help the survival of bees and butterflies.

:10:46.:10:49.

The proposed sites include Meir Park and Westport Lake. But some

:10:49.:10:51.

residents are against the plans as they believe it'll encourage

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:03.

fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour. Network Rail has turned

:11:03.:11:05.

down Virgin Trains' proposal to run a direct service between Shrewsbury

:11:05.:11:09.

and London. The company was hoping that the service would be able to

:11:09.:11:11.

start in December. Holly Lewis is at Shrewsbury railway station tonight,

:11:11.:11:15.

what has been the reaction to this? Well there has been disappointment,

:11:15.:11:19.

anger and perhaps a sense of resignation. It has been two and a

:11:19.:11:25.

half years since you could catch a train directly from Shrewsbury to

:11:25.:11:29.

London. Now Virgin have put in a bid to run two services a day from

:11:29.:11:35.

December. But today Network Rail said that the west West Coast

:11:35.:11:42.

Mainline is too busy and that adding extra services would made a trade

:11:42.:11:47.

off with punctuality. Local MPs said they were surprised at that and the

:11:47.:11:51.

local MP said it is not just about getting to London. If you do not

:11:51.:11:55.

have a direct service with the capital city, there is, there are

:11:55.:12:00.

huge numbers of visitors that you lose out, that simply won't come up

:12:00.:12:04.

and of course we have more difficulty in attracting inward

:12:04.:12:09.

investment from overseas. If we are not on that direct rail network to

:12:09.:12:17.

our capital city. What is next? Well, Virgin say they will appeal

:12:17.:12:22.

through the office of real regulation regulation and they still

:12:22.:12:26.

want the run the service. The transport sectsry said he wants the

:12:26.:12:29.

rail industry to work together on this to try and restore this

:12:29.:12:35.

service. But it seems it will still be at some time before you can catch

:12:35.:12:42.

a train from here all the way to London. Thank you. A year after the

:12:42.:12:45.

death of a 93-year-old woman who was brutally attacked in her own home,

:12:45.:12:48.

her family have made an appeal for information. Police launched a

:12:48.:12:50.

murder investigation following the death of Emma Winnall, who'd

:12:50.:12:53.

suffered a fractured skull and a broken arm and wrist. Liz Copper

:12:53.:12:58.

reports. It's a heart-rending image, this picture of Emma Winnall in

:12:58.:13:01.

intensive care was released by her family in the hope that someone

:13:01.:13:06.

would come forward with information. A year on, and the family still have

:13:06.:13:13.

no answers. We just don't know why. You can get used to someone dying of

:13:13.:13:17.

natural causes when you have got someone of 93 and frail and she

:13:17.:13:25.

can't fight back, it... You just can't comprehend it. To me, it's

:13:25.:13:31.

unbelievable. Part of me's accepted it and the other half, I can't just

:13:31.:13:38.

believe it happened. It was in April last year that Emma Winnall was

:13:38.:13:41.

attacked in her home in Mosley. Despite appeals for witnesses, the

:13:41.:13:44.

police still haven't identified the motive. I'd appeal 12 months for

:13:44.:13:47.

anyone with information, anyone who may be hiding or concealing

:13:47.:13:50.

information or know who the offender is to please come forward on behalf

:13:50.:14:00.
:14:00.:14:07.

of the family to put their mind at rest. The sense of outrage now is

:14:07.:14:15.

undiminished. To beat up an old lady just for the fun, or a thrill, I

:14:15.:14:21.

can't comprehend. It is terrible. I think it is a tragedy that nobody's

:14:21.:14:28.

been caught yet. It is disgusting what happened. I think it shook

:14:28.:14:33.

even. I feel sorry for the daughter really, you know, she must be going

:14:33.:14:40.

through... A hell of a time now. And it's been a year. Time flies, but it

:14:40.:14:45.

feels like it happened yesterday. It's hoped this latest appeal will

:14:45.:14:47.

prompt someone to contact police - and help bring whoever attacked Emma

:14:47.:14:56.

Winnall to justice. Our top story tonight: The Health Secretary warns

:14:56.:14:59.

no-one is above the law as patient deaths at Stafford Hospital are

:14:59.:15:04.

reviewed for gross negligence. ?FORCEDWHITE Your detailed weather

:15:04.:15:06.

forecast to come shortly from Rebecca. Also in tonight's

:15:06.:15:15.

programme: They don't have to be bloodhounds, but it may help! Calls

:15:15.:15:18.

for dogs to become blood donors. And Bollywood actors head for Birmingham

:15:18.:15:28.

to star in a British thriller. The family of a 25-year-old primary

:15:28.:15:30.

school teacher who died from cervical cancer are calling for the

:15:30.:15:35.

age limit for screening to be lowered. Gemma Marsh was diagnosed

:15:35.:15:39.

within days of having her first smear test and died just six months

:15:39.:15:44.

later. Her funeral has been taking place in Wolverhampton today. Joanne

:15:44.:15:53.

Writtle reports. Laid to rest aged just 25. Family and friends pay

:15:53.:15:57.

their respects to Gemma Marsh - who died just six months after her first

:15:57.:15:59.

routine test for cervical cancer proved positive. Her family now

:15:59.:16:02.

wants regulations changed so that women under the age of 25 are

:16:02.:16:08.

offered smear tests. There should be no age limit and they should be able

:16:08.:16:12.

to -- available to all young women if requested. Gemma walked into the

:16:12.:16:20.

clinic a healthy person, no symptoms whatsoever. No symptoms. That is why

:16:20.:16:26.

you think the test should be here? That is why I'm angry, because...

:16:26.:16:33.

You think you're healthy but it's a killer just waiting to pounce.

:16:33.:16:35.

home in Wolverhampton Gemma's parents look through messages sent

:16:35.:16:39.

to her by pupils. She was a teacher at Great Bridge Primary in Tipton,

:16:39.:16:45.

which closed today and yesterday as a mark of respect. Despite her

:16:45.:16:48.

family's view, medical opinion is that lowering the smear test age

:16:48.:16:58.
:16:58.:16:58.

could be counter productive and produce false results. Gemma did

:16:58.:17:03.

everything she was supposed to do, attending her test. Experts say it

:17:03.:17:09.

is important to do that. One in three women ignore letters asking to

:17:09.:17:14.

make a appointment. There will be people reading this story and

:17:14.:17:19.

watching this and probably think, should I go, shouldn't I go, if I go

:17:19.:17:23.

will there be something wrong. I would say go, because if you have

:17:23.:17:28.

got it you can catch it early and give yourself a chance. Gemma never

:17:28.:17:33.

had that chance. If it had been caught earlier, maybe Gemma would

:17:33.:17:39.

have had more of a chance. We will never know. Gemma died from a rare

:17:39.:17:42.

and aggressive form of cervical cancer. So many people attended her

:17:42.:17:52.

funeral they could barely close the doors. Joining us now from London is

:17:52.:17:53.

Adeola Olaitan, a Consultant Gynaecologist, specialising in

:17:53.:18:02.

cancer, Good evening to you. Can you explain why there is this lower

:18:02.:18:08.

limit? Can I correct a misconception the screening is not a Canter test,

:18:08.:18:17.

it is a -- cancer test, it is a test to prevent cancer and picks up cells

:18:17.:18:22.

which if untreated can lead to cancer several years down the line.

:18:22.:18:27.

It is not a test for cancer. It is important to emphasise that. So

:18:27.:18:33.

perfectly healthy women go and they have themselves screened if there

:18:33.:18:37.

are abnormalities they can be treated and the risk of developing

:18:37.:18:43.

cancer can be reduced. Talking about younger women, women aged 20 to 25

:18:43.:18:49.

have an im immature cervix and changes can look like abnormalities

:18:49.:18:53.

and that can lead to unnecessary intervention and unnecessary

:18:53.:19:00.

treatment. So one in three women under 25 convenienced will have

:19:00.:19:09.

abnormality, compared with one in 14 in the general pob layings and these

:19:09.:19:14.

things -- things clear up on their own. A vaccine is now being offered

:19:14.:19:19.

to 12-year-olds, what sort of take up have you had of that and is it

:19:19.:19:27.

making a difference. It is, the up take is up to 80%. We need to

:19:27.:19:34.

encourage 100%, because we know HPV is the virus that causes cancer.

:19:34.:19:38.

What about women under 25 who may be listening to you, they will be

:19:38.:19:43.

concerned having heard what happened to Gemma, wah would your advice be

:19:43.:19:48.

to -- what would youred a Veits be to them? I understand their concern.

:19:48.:19:54.

The important thing is not to ignore symptoms that may suggest cancer,

:19:54.:19:58.

things like bleeding after sexual intercourse or in between periods

:19:58.:20:04.

must be reported to your doctor. Most women will have an infection or

:20:04.:20:07.

something minor wrong with them. But it is important that the cancer is

:20:07.:20:15.

not missed. If it is picked up in its earl early stages, it is

:20:15.:20:23.

treatable. Thank you. The wreck of the only surviving World War Two

:20:23.:20:26.

German Bomber of its kind has been recovered from a sand bank at the

:20:26.:20:30.

bottom of the English Channel. The Dornier aircraft was shot down at

:20:30.:20:33.

the height of the Battle of Britain. Earlier today it was taken to

:20:33.:20:36.

Ramsgate to get it ready for travelling by road to Shropshire.

:20:36.:20:39.

It's expected to arrive at the RAF Museum at Cosford tomorrow where

:20:39.:20:48.

it'll be restored. You have got to remember two people died in that

:20:48.:20:53.

plane. So it is a mark of respect. But it is interesting. It is a once

:20:53.:20:59.

in a lifetime thing. You won't see another one. We're constantly being

:20:59.:21:02.

asked to be blood donors, especially during the holidays, a time when

:21:02.:21:05.

supplies run low. But it's not only humans that need blood transfusions

:21:05.:21:09.

and have to keep the blood bank stocked up, as Kevin Reide's been

:21:09.:21:14.

finding out. Five year old Labrador Jasper is a regular at the Broad

:21:14.:21:19.

Lane Veterinary Surgery in Coventry. But there's nothing wrong with him,

:21:19.:21:25.

he's here to give blood. I think it's a very good idea. We are happy

:21:25.:21:32.

to help other dogs. The surgery is holding a collection day as part of

:21:32.:21:35.

a campaign to drive up dog blood stock levels. They're now collected

:21:35.:21:39.

by a national charity, Pet Blood Bank UK. Was set up in 2007 and

the blood is there. Blood donated here today is likely to save the

lives of other dogs. 11-year-old Labrador Purdy is a living example.

:22:02.:22:05.

Last year she underwent life saving surgery to remove her spleen and

:22:05.:22:08.

without a transfusion she wouldn't have survived. It is difficult after

having a dog, a friend for so long to face having to lose her. And if

it hadn't been for the transfusion, she would certainly have gone.

constant short supply, because we are giving transfusions more often

now and we maybe did it once or twice a year. Now we are doing it

:22:32.:22:37.

every month or two now. And doggy donors are rewarded similar to

humans, but instead of tea and a biscuit, it's lots of fuss and a few

:22:41.:22:51.
:22:51.:22:52.

treats. That expression said where is my biscuit. Bollywood actors will

:22:52.:22:56.

be heading to the region next year for a feature film being put

is one of the places they are using for their next film a British

:23:23.:23:28.

thriller called called Bounty Hunter, starring Abhay Deol. I love

:23:28.:23:32.

the location, I mean I love it also because it goes so well with what I

:23:32.:23:36.

have read of the scene that it's going to be in and the scene is dark

:23:36.:23:40.

and depressing and almost demonic. I don't mean the city is like that,

:23:40.:23:50.
:23:50.:23:54.

but I'm glad it has parts that lend themselves well to the story.

the directors, filming in their home city was a priority. How important

:23:57.:24:06.

is to it keep the the film industry alive in our city? It's crucial,

:24:06.:24:09.

because it's tough wherever you are, but all the work seems to be

:24:09.:24:13.

siphoned to London and our struggle has been let's try and do as much

:24:13.:24:16.

stuff as we can regionally. But this isn't the first time Birmingham and

:24:16.:24:21.

Bollywood have united. Last year the Gatecrasher nightclub was used for

:24:21.:24:26.

another film. But how popular is the city for film makers. Economically,

:24:26.:24:30.

last year it brought in over �11 million and we have a rich base here

:24:30.:24:33.

to employ local crews and for people to to see people filming, it is

:24:33.:24:43.
:24:43.:24:47.

exciting and it is a feel good factor. Filming starts next spring,

:24:47.:24:50.

but �2 million production will create around 30 jobs for local

:24:50.:24:57.

crew. This latest film is one of many that are being shot here in the

:24:57.:25:02.

region. Last year alone there were over 900 days of filming that took

:25:29.:25:34.

Now the weather. 'S the sunshine? It does feel like it has been stuck

:25:34.:25:38.

behind the clouds. But it is going to change and we will see more

:25:38.:25:43.

patchy rain. It is feeling milder. Last night temperatures were down to

:25:43.:25:47.

five Celsius. It will be higher tonight. At the moment we have some

:25:47.:25:51.

brightness, but the cloud is starting to build and fill in and as

:25:51.:25:56.

we make our way through night, we will see the band of rain moving up

:25:56.:26:02.

from the south. Temperatures though are around 14 Celsius tonight. It is

:26:02.:26:06.

feeling much milder. A muggy night to come. That means we will see a

:26:06.:26:11.

murky start to our Wednesday. So it will be a murky start with the

:26:11.:26:16.

showers through the morning. And they will die out for a time and we

:26:16.:26:20.

will see some bright spells. But then we have got more rain making

:26:20.:26:25.

its way up. So it is going to feel mild, faechlts around 18 Celsius,

:26:25.:26:30.

but winds are picking up and it could affect play at Edgbaston

:26:30.:26:34.

tomorrow between Australia and New Zealand. That rain is going to

:26:34.:26:38.

continue through the afternoon and it will be heavier than we have seen

:26:39.:26:44.

today. So that will carry on through the night into Thursday morning.

:26:44.:26:48.

Becoming more patchy as we make our way through to the morning. But a

:26:48.:26:54.

mild night, temperatures around 12 Celsius. So Thursday is looking like

:26:54.:26:59.

a windy day with gusts up to 40 or 50mph through morning. What it does

:26:59.:27:03.

mean it will push that rain out of the way so it will be a brightening

:27:03.:27:08.

picture in the afternoon. As we make our way through to Friday, it is

:27:08.:27:13.

staying changeable, sunshine and showers. Thank you Let's recap
