Hello and welcome to Midlands Today with Nick Owen and Mary Rhodes. The

:00:00.:00:08.

headlines tonight: Tributes from the music industry to a Birmingham

:00:08.:00:12.

teenager who was stabbed to death at the weekend. Extremely charismatic,

:00:12.:00:21.

he was effervescent with energy, always positive, smiling. He was an

:00:21.:00:27.

inspiration. We'll be talking to the West Midlands Deputy Crime

:00:27.:00:29.

Commissioner about the continuing battle against knife crime.

:00:29.:00:32.

Also tonight: The man described as a monster by police for his cruel and

:00:32.:00:35.

violent assaults on women and children is jailed for life. The

:00:35.:00:43.

youngest of his victims was six years old. These are dreadful

:00:43.:00:46.

offences. Four senior doctors in management

:00:46.:00:49.

roles during the care crisis at Stafford Hospital are told there'll

:00:49.:00:52.

be no action against them. With fashion guru Gok Wan on stage,

:00:52.:00:55.

will this year's Birmingham Hippodrome panto be the best dressed

:00:55.:01:03.

in the country? And sunshine certainly seems to be out of fashion

:01:03.:01:06.

at the moment, but if that is the case, we are bang on trend this

:01:06.:01:08.

week. Your full forecast coming up. Good evening. Some of the country's

:01:08.:01:22.

top rap music artists have been paying tribute to a Birmingham

:01:22.:01:25.

rapper who was stabbed to death at the weekend. 18—year—old Joshua

:01:25.:01:28.

Ribera, whose stage name was Depzman, was seen as a rising star.

:01:28.:01:35.

According to West Midlands Police, knife related offences actually

:01:35.:01:37.

dropped from almost three thousand between April 2011 and April 2012 to

:01:37.:01:41.

just over two thousand two hundred for the same period last year. But

:01:41.:01:48.

Josh Ribera's death, and the fatal stabbing of 16—year—old Azim Azam at

:01:48.:01:51.

a bus stop in Moseley last week, brought the total of fatal stabbings

:01:51.:01:55.

in Birmingham to four in the past six months.

:01:55.:02:07.

Josh Ribera rapped about making his family proud and having his own kids

:02:07.:02:14.

one day. But instead his relatives and friends are left grieving,

:02:14.:02:21.

shocked by his untimely death. Recording under the name Depzman, he

:02:21.:02:28.

is currently number one in the hip—hop album charts.

:02:28.:02:29.

Wolverhampton—based record producer Jamin Walters says he was a rising

:02:29.:02:35.

star. He was on the road to big things. He was definitely known by

:02:35.:02:44.

most people, and locally, he was definitely in the top five artists

:02:44.:02:48.

in the scene at the moment. He died here, he was on his way back from a

:02:48.:02:55.

memorial concert to remember 16—year—old close friend of his who

:02:55.:03:01.

was stabbed to death last September. His friends say they hope is high

:03:01.:03:04.

profile will make people talk about knife crime. Depzman was known and

:03:04.:03:14.

looked up to buy so many kids. Last Monday, 17—year—old as eMac Azzam

:03:14.:03:22.

was stabbed to death as he got off a bus. Some fear Birmingham is

:03:22.:03:26.

becoming the stabbing capital of Britain. The police need to be much

:03:26.:03:32.

more open with their communication. There is a strong education element

:03:32.:03:35.

that needs to be a part of this as well. But the police say it is not

:03:35.:03:40.

just up to them to get the message across. It is about everybody

:03:40.:03:45.

getting the message across to young people if you carry a knife you're

:03:45.:03:49.

liable to get stabbed. Two 18—year—old men are being questioned

:03:49.:03:56.

about Joshua Ribera's death. His name and message will live on.

:03:56.:04:01.

Teachers at a Birmingham school have voted to stop teaching a teenage boy

:04:01.:04:05.

who threatened other pupils with a knife. The boy was permanently

:04:05.:04:08.

excluded from Saltley School after a 'serious incident' but governors

:04:08.:04:13.

have since overturned the decision. The move has angered parents and

:04:13.:04:18.

teachers. In May, West Midlands Police were

:04:18.:04:21.

called to Saltley School in Birmingham after reports a pupil was

:04:21.:04:26.

threatening others with a knife. Officers took no further action. The

:04:26.:04:29.

school permanently excluded the teenage boy. But before the summer

:04:29.:04:34.

holiday, governors decided the pupil should be allowed back into classes.

:04:34.:04:39.

This parent, who has two children at Saltley School, says she's concerned

:04:39.:04:44.

for the safety of pupils. She doesn't want to be identified. This

:04:44.:04:52.

young boy threatened several children and you can imagine the

:04:52.:04:55.

dilemma we're facing. You know, what's going to happen in school? Is

:04:55.:04:59.

this boy going to hurt one of our children. What happens if he does

:04:59.:05:02.

hurt one of them? It really does scare us."

:05:02.:05:04.

It's clear some teachers also have concerns. Following a ballot, the

:05:04.:05:07.

NASUWT union has confirmed its members have voted to refuse to

:05:07.:05:11.

teach the pupil and are in further talks with the school. In a

:05:11.:05:14.

statement, the head teacher said I have total confidence in the safety

:05:14.:05:17.

of all pupils and staff at Saltley School. He said we don't have one ——

:05:17.:05:23.

we did have one incident, and it went through due process. The needs

:05:23.:05:28.

of all pupils are being met, he added. Tonight, local Labour

:05:28.:05:30.

councillors are calling for an investigation. It is very

:05:30.:05:34.

important, considering the recent stabbings of youngsters in

:05:34.:05:42.

Birmingham, there is a lot of unrest amongst the community, and the

:05:42.:05:46.

youngsters. It is really important a thorough investigation must take

:05:46.:05:51.

place. Birmingham City Council says it is acting as a mediator. This

:05:51.:05:54.

year, Ofsted gave Saltley School a 'good' rating and found their

:05:54.:06:04.

students are being kept safe. With me now is the Deputy Police and

:06:04.:06:07.

Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands, Yvonne Mosquito. Another

:06:07.:06:09.

young person stabbed to death in Birmingham. It seems like you're

:06:10.:06:15.

losing the battle. We are not losing the battle. Another life is too many

:06:15.:06:22.

lives, it is tragic and we went to express our condolences to the

:06:22.:06:26.

families of those who have lost their loved ones in these horrible

:06:26.:06:28.

circumstances. But over the past decade, knife crime has gone down,

:06:28.:06:35.

it hasn't increased. It is no consolation to any member, any

:06:35.:06:39.

family that has lost someone, but that is the reality. Knife crime has

:06:39.:06:43.

gone down. But it is still occurring. You seem to have lost

:06:43.:06:50.

lots of initiative over that time. It is still happening? It is, and it

:06:50.:06:56.

is horribly unfortunate. The fact that we have lost life, but crime

:06:56.:07:02.

has gone down over the decade, 50% of all knife crime has been reduced.

:07:02.:07:06.

The police are working with the community, with schools, local

:07:06.:07:15.

organisations, Crimestoppers. 45,000 youngsters are in schools with a

:07:15.:07:23.

firearms officer. A lot of work has been going on. But is it enough?

:07:23.:07:28.

Charity we spoke to has said that some young people are scared.

:07:28.:07:36.

Absolutely. I would say it is never enough. We all have a duty to reduce

:07:36.:07:40.

this. One life is too much, for lives is too much. Any life gone in

:07:40.:07:45.

these circumstances is tragic. We all have a duty. We want to work

:07:45.:07:51.

together to educate young people, and the young people themselves want

:07:51.:07:55.

to do something about it. There is called for knife amnesty. Do you

:07:55.:08:00.

think that the governors at Saltley School were right to reinstate that

:08:00.:08:05.

pupil? I don't know the facts of the case but I will be speaking to the

:08:05.:08:10.

Chief Constable tomorrow. Thank you. Coming up later in the programme: Do

:08:10.:08:14.

urban otters have a different diet from their rural counterparts? Otter

:08:14.:08:16.

spotters inspect their droppings to find out.

:08:16.:08:24.

A violent paedophile described by a senior detective as a "monster and a

:08:24.:08:28.

bully" has been jailed for life. 39—year—old Karl Clay, from

:08:28.:08:30.

Coventry, committed offences against ten victims over a 16—year period.

:08:30.:08:36.

Clay's reign of terror began in 1992, but he evaded justice until

:08:36.:08:39.

2011 when two victims finally plucked up the courage to talk to

:08:39.:08:46.

police. His victims included girls, boys and women and he used extreme

:08:46.:08:52.

violence. In 1994, he smothered a woman with a pillow then raped her.

:08:52.:08:57.

In 2004, he stabbed a fork into a teenage boy's foot. And, in 2005, he

:08:57.:09:02.

terrified two children into submission after squirting them with

:09:02.:09:05.

lighter fuel and threatening to set it alight. Our reporter Giles

:09:05.:09:11.

Latcham joins us now from our Coventry studio. A terrible set of

:09:11.:09:15.

crimes, Giles. How did they go undetected for so long? Put simply

:09:15.:09:21.

through intimidation. He's a big man as well as a brutal one and for

:09:21.:09:25.

years his victims were too scared to speak out. But two years ago two of

:09:25.:09:29.

them found the courage to tell their mother and that led to a police

:09:29.:09:33.

investigation and eventually to a month—long trial which ended in

:09:33.:09:39.

July. Clay, from the Wood End area of Coventry was convicted of a

:09:39.:09:42.

catalogue of what the judge called terrible abuse, including two counts

:09:42.:09:45.

of rape, attempted rape, actual bodily harm, indecency with a child

:09:45.:09:52.

and indecent assault. His youngest victims aged just six and four. The

:09:52.:09:57.

police officer who invested —— who investigated Karl Clay is the same

:09:57.:10:02.

one who led the investigation into the murder of Daniel Pell car. He

:10:02.:10:07.

describes Karl Clay as a monster and a bully. Quite possibly he is the

:10:08.:10:14.

vilest perpetrator I have dealt with. Not only did the subject is

:10:14.:10:21.

victims to suggest it —— sadistic sexual offences, he was also very

:10:21.:10:25.

violent. On one occasion he poured petrol on his victims. They must

:10:25.:10:28.

have been absolutely terrified by this man. Clay is now facing a very

:10:29.:10:40.

long time in jail, isn't he? He was given two life sentences with a

:10:40.:10:42.

recommendation that he serve at least 15 years before he's

:10:43.:10:45.

considered for parole. The judge said he'd targeted the most

:10:45.:10:48.

vulnerable, that in the case of his youngest victims, he'd "taken away

:10:49.:10:51.

their childhood". They lived with fear and distress, she said, which

:10:51.:10:56.

had scarred their lives. The police have released three separate

:10:56.:10:58.

pictures of Clay, the earliest dating back to 1998. Point being

:10:58.:11:01.

they're convinced there are other victims of Clay out there yet to be

:11:01.:11:05.

identified. They say they will seek justice for them.

:11:05.:11:09.

The General Medical Council is dropping action against four senior

:11:09.:11:12.

doctors who had management roles at Stafford Hospital during the time of

:11:12.:11:15.

the scandal over care. The GMC says its decision was based

:11:15.:11:19.

on legal advice that there wasn't adequate evidence to pursue the

:11:19.:11:21.

cases. Our Health Correspondent Michele Paduano is with us. What is

:11:21.:11:28.

the detail behind the GMC deciding that they couldn't pursue this?

:11:28.:11:36.

Three of the doctors, they were either medical director or deputy

:11:36.:11:38.

medical director of the hospital. The General medical Council called

:11:38.:11:46.

in Tom Clark, the person responsible for leading a public enquiry. It

:11:46.:11:50.

didn't seek to find blame, so they couldn't use that against them. The

:11:50.:11:54.

previous reports were not at a sufficiently high level to establish

:11:54.:11:59.

blame. Witnesses had not come forward in sufficient numbers, and

:11:59.:12:02.

those that have worked quite supportive of them. When they were

:12:02.:12:06.

making complaints, they were falling on deaf ears. This lack of action

:12:07.:12:12.

against the doctors, rather frustratingly the premise to? Very

:12:12.:12:18.

much so. It doesn't matter if they harm the patient in the past, they

:12:18.:12:22.

can only be punished if they are still a risk to patients. When the

:12:22.:12:28.

Prime Minister was talking he was extremely frustrated about the fact

:12:28.:12:31.

that no doctor had yet been struck off. I believe the regular to rebut

:12:31.:12:36.

is in particular are going to have difficult questions to answer. The

:12:36.:12:40.

nursing and midwifery Council need to explain why no one has been

:12:40.:12:47.

struck off. The Secretary of State for health has invited them to

:12:47.:12:50.

explain what steps they will take to strengthen their accountability in

:12:50.:12:56.

the right light of this report. And what of the relatives, what have

:12:56.:13:01.

they have to say about this? Not surprised. I spoke to Julie Bailey

:13:01.:13:09.

in Brighton today, and one of the rather frustratingly is as you don't

:13:09.:13:12.

get to find out what the evidences from which decisions are made. She

:13:12.:13:16.

is sure on her own mind that these doctors knew what was going on. And

:13:16.:13:21.

that they should be aware of the appalling things going on on the

:13:21.:13:25.

wards. Research has begun in Warwickshire

:13:25.:13:28.

to see what urban otters eat in comparison with their country

:13:28.:13:30.

cousins. Researchers will be examining their

:13:30.:13:34.

droppings — or spraint — to see how different the diet of rural otters

:13:34.:13:37.

is from those that pass through our towns and cities. Our Rural Affairs

:13:38.:13:41.

Correspondent David Gregory—Kumar is down by the waterside right now and

:13:41.:13:46.

can tell us more. I've been doing this job for at

:13:46.:13:50.

least a decade and while we've talked about the otter resurgence in

:13:50.:13:53.

that time they really are doing well and are in canals and rivers in our

:13:53.:13:58.

towns and cities. As you said, researchers have been out in

:13:58.:14:03.

Stratford. We met one who is using a long spoon to get hold of otter

:14:03.:14:10.

droppings. This is to see if their diet is different. Quite likely,

:14:10.:14:17.

because they have different things, all different types official that

:14:17.:14:21.

might be available. They could be eating, scavenging, all around the

:14:21.:14:30.

city. Like foxes and badgers. They could eat the remains of someone's

:14:30.:14:43.

chicken down by the Riverside. With me is Paul Wildlison from the canals

:14:43.:14:47.

and rivers trust. Paul, you do work to encourage otters, don't you? We

:14:47.:14:50.

know they have occasionally been passing through. We don't know what

:14:50.:14:56.

the barriers might be, if any. We are appealing to people to get in

:14:56.:15:02.

touch with us because we have 600 kilometres of Canon Alan the

:15:02.:15:06.

Midlands. If people are not sure to look for the signs of otters, we

:15:06.:15:13.

have been training courses for people to come along and do some

:15:13.:15:17.

monitoring. Are they passing through or living here? They are probably

:15:17.:15:23.

passing through at the moment. Birmingham city centre, they will

:15:23.:15:31.

pass through 20 kilometres for females or 40, mutters for males.

:15:31.:15:40.

You do not have to travel very far to get decent habitat, but in this

:15:40.:15:43.

area there might not be enough for shelter and rest. Thank you very

:15:43.:15:49.

much. That's all from the canalside. And there will be more on the otters

:15:49.:15:53.

returning to our towns and cities on Inside Out tonight. Join Mary for

:15:53.:15:56.

that and other stories at 7.30pm. This is our top story tonight: Top

:15:56.:16:00.

rap artists pay tribute to a Birmingham teenager who was stabbed

:16:00.:16:04.

to death at the weekend. Your detailed weather forecast to

:16:04.:16:08.

come shortly. Also in tonight's programme, a stunning start for

:16:08.:16:11.

Jesse Lingard, on loan from Manchester United, scoring all four

:16:11.:16:16.

goals for Birmingham City. And having them in stitches, stylist

:16:16.:16:20.

Gok Wan among the stars for the UK's biggest panto at the Hippodrome.

:16:20.:16:29.

Onto sport, and there's a big night of speedway in prospect tonight as

:16:29.:16:35.

Wolves take on local rivals the Brummies in the Elite League

:16:35.:16:38.

Play—offs. Our reporter Dan Pallet is at

:16:38.:16:41.

Monmore Green. Wolves fans had been hoping to welcome back Tai

:16:41.:16:44.

Wooffinden as World Champion, they're going to have to wait,

:16:44.:16:53.

aren't they? That's right. He is not even here. The two teams are on the

:16:53.:17:00.

track at the moment. Tai Woffinden Isn't here at all and he is not yet

:17:00.:17:04.

world champion. That's because he broke his collarbone for the time

:17:04.:17:08.

this season. That did not stop racing on, and inch closer to

:17:08.:17:15.

winning that world title. Who wouldn't be in pain with their

:17:15.:17:17.

collarbone sticking out like that? But Tai Woffinden rode through the

:17:18.:17:21.

pain barrier and is now on the verge of becoming World Champion. And the

:17:21.:17:24.

setback came very early in Saturday's Swedish Grand Prix.

:17:24.:17:27.

Woffinden crashed into Tomasz Gollob in his bery first race leaving the

:17:27.:17:30.

pole with concussion and a back injury and breaking his own

:17:30.:17:34.

collarbone. But with the world title at stake he decided to ride on

:17:34.:17:40.

through the pain barrier. He finished second twice, and then a

:17:40.:17:45.

sensational start saw him win the race. Eventually the pain became too

:17:45.:17:51.

great and in his fifth race of the night he had to withdraw. But the

:17:51.:17:54.

seven valuable points he won on the night means he needs just six more

:17:54.:17:58.

in the season's final grand prix to clinch the title. It's the second

:17:58.:18:01.

time Woffinden's broken the collarbone this season — this time

:18:01.:18:04.

he's also bent the metal plate supposed to hold it in place. But

:18:04.:18:08.

Tai Woffinden doesn't lack for bravery — not with the World

:18:08.:18:16.

Championship in sight. An incredible night on Saturday. Let's find out a

:18:16.:18:23.

bit more about Tai Woffinden. How we see this evening? The medical advice

:18:23.:18:29.

is to take rest. He is going to continue racing and make the final

:18:29.:18:34.

decision about what to do with the collar bone. It got bent in the

:18:34.:18:39.

accident on Saturday night. A terrific anti—climax for everybody.

:18:39.:18:43.

We were convinced we were going to be welcoming the speedway champion,

:18:43.:18:46.

and there we have got to wait two weeks. Shows how tough he is that he

:18:46.:18:52.

went on and all that pain? Amazing performance. The lad, you know, it

:18:52.:19:02.

was an amazing performance. Still a big night tonight. How much are you

:19:03.:19:07.

looking forward to it? It is the biggest night we have had for years.

:19:07.:19:09.

Arming and have done remarkably well. We have sneaked into the

:19:09.:19:16.

play—offs. These two next Monday are going to be so important for Midland

:19:16.:19:21.

speedway and we are delighted to be hosting the first leg tonight.

:19:21.:19:26.

Perhaps he could race for you this season again. What do you think? The

:19:26.:19:31.

plus point is we are going to have a Midlands team in the grand final.

:19:31.:19:38.

Just a few hours before he had his injury, I can man got his big break

:19:38.:19:44.

with Birmingham City. His name is Jesse Lingard, on loan from

:19:44.:19:49.

Manchester United. He celebrated by scoring all four goals. I am very

:19:49.:19:58.

nervous. A lot of pressure. I did that and got a few goals as well.

:19:58.:20:06.

That is an understatement. Jesse Lingard is very modest, very laid.

:20:06.:20:12.

Just 20 years old, his first goal came in his professional debut. Nine

:20:12.:20:19.

minutes later, Jesse popped up again to double Birmingham's lead against

:20:19.:20:25.

Sheffield Wednesday. And barely four minutes after that, he pounced once

:20:25.:20:31.

more to lead the Blues' fans at Cloud nine. It was like a dream, to

:20:31.:20:42.

be fair. But Jesse had one more trick up his sleeve, six minutes

:20:42.:20:46.

after half—time. You hope that he makes an impact but you don't think

:20:46.:20:51.

in your wildest dreams that he will score four goals. I am not sure

:20:51.:21:00.

Jesse would remember Trevor Francis. He has now set himself up, such a

:21:00.:21:08.

high standard. What sort of weekend has it been for you? It has been

:21:08.:21:15.

hectic. I watched the Derby yesterday and back to training

:21:15.:21:25.

today. A lot of text? Yeah, a lot of messages from my family and friends,

:21:25.:21:30.

is anything to go by, it might not be too good. We have had a big

:25:02.:25:07.

blanket of cloud sitting over us. The sun has really struggled to get

:25:07.:25:10.

through that. It has affected temperatures. We only got up to 17

:25:11.:25:16.

or 18 across the region. Elsewhere, we managed to make it up to the 20s.

:25:16.:25:20.

It will stay settled through the next few days to say the least. High

:25:20.:25:26.

pressure is sitting over us. We are still drawing in warm air, but by

:25:26.:25:29.

the middle of the week, it will start to change because we are going

:25:29.:25:35.

to see the return of showers. We still have cloud sitting over us to

:25:35.:25:38.

night. Through the night we will see dry air pushing, moving that cloud

:25:38.:25:45.

out of the way. When we get those clearing skies, we could see mist

:25:45.:25:47.

and fog patches developing by tomorrow morning. Where the cloud is

:25:47.:25:52.

sticking, temperatures will be helped. It will be a misty, grey,

:25:52.:26:01.

cloudy start. We will see the sun burning through that cloud. Because

:26:01.:26:05.

the sun is quite strong and we have got that milder air, temperatures

:26:05.:26:08.

could shoot up into the 20s tomorrow. There will be plenty more

:26:08.:26:14.

sunshine to come through the afternoon. Then, very similar to

:26:14.:26:19.

what we have seen this afternoon and tonight, the holes in that cloud

:26:19.:26:25.

will be filled in. We could see the odd shower through the night across

:26:25.:26:29.

Herefordshire. Another mild night to come, the average is up to 14

:26:29.:26:32.

Celsius. As we move through to Wednesday, things are starting to

:26:32.:26:37.

change. This area of low pressure is waiting to moving, throwing weather

:26:37.:26:42.

fronts at us as we move into Wednesday and Thursday. By Thursday,

:26:42.:26:46.

we are starting to see the return of showers through the day. The best of

:26:46.:26:50.

the conditions to the next few days look to come tomorrow. As we move

:26:50.:26:54.

through Wednesday and Thursday, the return of showers with more to come

:26:54.:26:59.

through the weekend I'm afraid. Let's recap tonight's top stories:

:26:59.:27:02.

Terror in Nairobi — the siege at a Kenyan shopping mall continues — 62

:27:02.:27:06.

people are now dead including four Britons.

:27:06.:27:09.

And top rap artists pay tribute to a Birmingham teenager who was stabbed
