Good evening. A man has appdared in court in connection with an acid
attack which left a 19`year`old woman critically ill. 27`ye`r`old

the door of a property in Thvidale. Musicians and comedians are staging
a charity concert in Birmingham to raise thousands of pounds for
injured servicemen and women. The proceeds from Stand Up For The
Heroes will go to Fisher Hotse, the purpose`built home for relatives of
soldiers being treated at Qteen Elizabeth Hospital. Ben Godfrey
reports. Kerry Ford has been living `t Fisher
House for more than six months. Her husband Norman, who served for the
Royal Engineers, is being treated for severe brain injuries at the
Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Hdre, over the Easter break, they can `t least
feel like they have the comforts of home, even though home is the
Falkland Islands. Just the calm of being able to walk in, shut that
door and just go... At the dnd of what has been pretty bad daxs at
times. Around 650 people have stayed at Fisher House, this home from
home, since it opened last June but donations are critical. It costs
around ?250,000 a year to rtn. # And life, the ground is sometimes
your best friend. # Tomorrow night the Glee Club in Birmingham will
showcase rising stars of music and comedy.
It is a charity gig put togdther by Sebastian Miles, a former Grenadier
Guard who saw action in Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan and where in 20 0
his battle group suffered mtltiple casualties. I'm always humbled by it
but saddened by their injurhes and therefore I will dedicate as long as
it takes to raise money for them, in this gig and future gigs ovdr the
years. Profits from ticket sales could see ?10,000 raised for Fisher
House. It's wonderful. ?10,000 provides us with 400 nights'
accommodation, in effect ovdr a year for a family to stay here. Giving
Kerry and other relatives of injured soldiers one less thing to worry
about. The football results now, starting

Hundreds of fans packed into the Autotech Stadium in Solihull this
afternoon to watch this latdst instalment in the history of
Birmingham City Ladies' football club. They are enjoying a dream run
in the Champions League. Thdse sides have surprised us in getting this
far, so if they get beaten they get beaten and we are still protd of
them. The men have done it when we played Arsenal, so hopefullx we will
have a win today. The Swedish team were favourites and dominatdd the
first half, but the Blues h`d solid defence. After a goalless fhrst half
Birmingham City were much ilproved in the second and had sever`l decent
chances of their own. This shot was one of the best. The match dnded
0`0. The scoreline testament to the defensive strength of the Blues who
have only conceded once in five games this season. We did not want
them to score because away goals are massive. With the calibre of players
they have, it is a great result for us. Burning travel to Sweden a week
tomorrow. The winners will be guaranteed a place in the fhnal ``
Birmingham travel to Sweden a week tomorrow. Neuer`macro Neuer`macro

Let's get the Bank Holiday weather forecast from Charlie Slater.
Good evening. Some decent brightness for some others for the end of the
day. As we make our way into Easter Sunday, a fair amount of cloud but
it clears a bit and comes b`ck in the early hours. It will allow heat
to be trapped in, so it will not drop lower than four degree Celsius.
On Easter Sunday, a little bit of rain at times. It is quite short
lived. The majority through the middle of the day. Plan your Easter
egg hunts carefully. The temperatures up to 14 or 15 Celsius.
That is all for now. Our next bulletin is at 6:50pm tomorrow. Have
a Good evening. The temperature
