In Yardley is an equally exercised politician who is considering legal

:00:33.:02:55.

action against the council. He says more than 100 piles of rubbish have

:02:56.:02:58.

been dumped in his constituency. They should scrap the charge,

:02:59.:03:02.

because it is clear that some people can't afford it and it is causing a

:03:03.:03:06.

major mess across the city. And if the city looks bad, there is clear

:03:07.:03:09.

evidence that it encourages crime. Birmingham City Council is dealing

:03:10.:03:12.

with some huge political issues at the moment, not least the allegation

:03:13.:03:15.

of extremists infiltrating some of the city's schools, and what to do

:03:16.:03:18.

about children's services. But the issue for many people on their

:03:19.:03:21.

doorstep is this stuff, the collection of garden waste. I think

:03:22.:03:26.

it is diabolical that we have to pay extra for a service we are already

:03:27.:03:30.

paying for. I paid ?35 to have my wheelie bin, which is fantastic. On

:03:31.:03:35.

principle, I would not pay for it. Later, we found more than 50 bags

:03:36.:03:39.

dumped on the Bristol Road, some with stickers explaining that the

:03:40.:03:42.

green waste disposal service is no longer free. The council say about

:03:43.:03:46.

1000 residents a week are signing up to the annual collection fee, with

:03:47.:03:49.

around 40,000 households so far on board. This is what cuts look like

:03:50.:03:58.

in Birmingham, yes. And we still have a further ?300 million to cut

:03:59.:04:02.

out of the city council's budget over the next couple of years. It is

:04:03.:04:06.

going to get even more difficult, I'm afraid. I don't welcome that,

:04:07.:04:10.

but I don't deny it and it is our job as a council to be honest with

:04:11.:04:14.

people and do what we can with the money available. People who continue

:04:15.:04:18.

to dump waste in the city are being warned that they could face fines of

:04:19.:04:20.

several thousand pounds. Well, Cath Mackie is back in a part

:04:21.:04:24.

of Birmingham that we saw in that report, Rubery, in the south west of

:04:25.:04:28.

the city. What's the latest this evening, Cath? That big pile of

:04:29.:04:34.

garden rubbish we saw earlier is still here. We have had a lot of

:04:35.:04:39.

people contact our newsroom about this story. Let me give you a

:04:40.:04:42.

flavour of some of the things people are saying. Roz Ratcliffe says:

:04:43.:05:10.

I guess we will find out what impact this issue will have on voters, come

:05:11.:05:16.

local election day on May the 22nd. Coming up later in the programme:

:05:17.:05:20.

The first to graduate from a new training facility in Staffordshire `

:05:21.:05:23.

the latest wave of medics for our armed forces.

:05:24.:05:32.

Two care workers have appeared in court charged with manslaughter

:05:33.:05:34.

following the death of a 91`year`old woman. Iris Teale was found with a

:05:35.:05:38.

broken leg at the Aston Court Nursing Home in Little Aston, Sutton

:05:39.:05:43.

Coldfield in October 2011. She died at Good Hope Hospital just over two

:05:44.:05:46.

weeks later. Our Health Correspondent Michele Paduano has

:05:47.:05:54.

the story. 91`year`old Iris Teale was frail and

:05:55.:05:58.

elderly. She had been unable to walk for some time when she was involved

:05:59.:06:02.

in a fall on October eighth, 2011 and broke her hip. Her son visited

:06:03.:06:06.

her in Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield after the incident, but

:06:07.:06:12.

she died just over two weeks later. I have not put mother to rest. I

:06:13.:06:16.

don't know exactly what happened. I don't know what may have caused the

:06:17.:06:23.

problem. Who is responsible, if anyone is responsible or what.

:06:24.:06:29.

40`year`old Marsha Tulloch seen here in black appeared at

:06:30.:06:31.

Burton`Magistrates Court charged with unlawful killing. She and a co

:06:32.:06:38.

accused, 38`year`old Santosh Rajan, worked at this care home, which

:06:39.:06:41.

houses 55 residents near Sutton Coldfield Ptc Aston Court Nursing

:06:42.:06:44.

and Residential Care Home is a red brick building at the end of this

:06:45.:06:47.

leafy lane specialises in residential, nursing and palliative

:06:48.:06:55.

care patients. At the time Mrs Teale was here, the fees were ?1000 a week

:06:56.:06:59.

Two and a half years on, they are still looking for answers: you can't

:07:00.:07:04.

imagine life without them. You have to face up to it, but in these

:07:05.:07:08.

circumstances, it is very hard to accept. It is incredibly rare for

:07:09.:07:12.

somebody to be charged with an slaughter in a case like this.

:07:13.:07:16.

Without knowing the details, it is difficult to know why that

:07:17.:07:19.

conclusion has been reached, but it is something we do not see every

:07:20.:07:25.

day. The case has been remanded to Stafford Crown Court next Friday.

:07:26.:07:28.

The defendants are yet to enter a plea.

:07:29.:07:33.

Stephen Sutton, the Staffordshire teenager with incurable cancer, has

:07:34.:07:44.

been discharged from hospital. The 19`year`old from Burntwood, who's

:07:45.:07:47.

raised more than ?3 million for the Teenage Cancer Trust, announced on

:07:48.:07:50.

social media that he'd now left hospital and described his recovery

:07:51.:07:53.

as "quite remarkable". Earlier he'd been visited by the prime minister

:07:54.:07:56.

David Cameron, who praised the teenager for his "incredible" zest

:07:57.:07:57.

for life. The National Association of Head

:07:58.:08:00.

Teachers says 30 heads in Birmingham have raised concerns about an

:08:01.:08:03.

alleged hard`line Muslim takeover of schools. Four investigations are

:08:04.:08:06.

going on into Birmingham schools, following the so`called "Trojan

:08:07.:08:09.

Horse" letter. Ofsted has confirmed today that the findings of its own

:08:10.:08:12.

inquiry will be published at the beginning of June.

:08:13.:08:24.

This month's European and Council elections will inevitably be

:08:25.:08:26.

examined for pointers to the General Election in a year's time. With both

:08:27.:08:30.

the Conservatives and Labour short of a Commons majority, each needs

:08:31.:08:34.

seats from the other. So all the parties will be fighting hard in

:08:35.:08:37.

nearly 30 Midlands marginals, as our BBC Hereford and Worcester political

:08:38.:08:46.

reporter Matthew Bone explains. Across the West Midlands, the

:08:47.:08:49.

election campaign is coming to the boil, nowhere more so than here in

:08:50.:08:53.

the Winyates area of Redditch. When it comes to swing voters, this place

:08:54.:08:57.

has pretty much got the market wrapped up. There has been Liberal,

:08:58.:09:03.

Labour, Conservative, BNP. It's very diverse. We have got people from

:09:04.:09:12.

everywhere. Everybody contributes to the local community in a positive

:09:13.:09:15.

way. Redditch's MP was Labour's Jacqui Smith until 2010, but with

:09:16.:09:18.

the expenses scandal at its height, she lost her seat to the

:09:19.:09:21.

Conservatives' Karen Lumley, who took it with a larger than average

:09:22.:09:24.

swing of 9%. But Labour retook the council a couple of years ago here,

:09:25.:09:28.

and this time round, they have wheeled out the Shadow Cabinet big

:09:29.:09:32.

guns as they try to take more seats off the Conservatives and build

:09:33.:09:35.

momentum ahead of next year's general election. But there are

:09:36.:09:40.

plenty of other candidates in the field, including UKIP, who had their

:09:41.:09:43.

own county councillor here until recently. Could they have more

:09:44.:09:47.

impact this time around? Around the corner, Mad Malk has been sitting

:09:48.:09:50.

down with customers for the last few years. He is not surprised that

:09:51.:09:54.

people round here are so quick to change their vote. I think a lot of

:09:55.:09:58.

people have come to the conclusion that they voted for this person,

:09:59.:10:01.

this person has not done what they said they were going to do, they try

:10:02.:10:13.

the next person. Looking on the boards, there are a couple of roses

:10:14.:10:17.

that could be used for Labour or a bird for the Liberal Democrats. Have

:10:18.:10:21.

you ever had anybody come in and ask for a political tattoo? No. I think

:10:22.:10:25.

a lot of them would probably regret it at a later stage. Redditch is one

:10:26.:10:29.

of around 30 key marginal seats in the West Midlands, and whoever makes

:10:30.:10:32.

their mark this time round stands a good chance of doing well in the

:10:33.:10:36.

next general election. That is the real needle contest. Which one is it

:10:37.:10:43.

going to be? The smallest one for me please!

:10:44.:10:45.

And our Political Editor Patrick Burns is here now. We always stress

:10:46.:10:49.

the importance of local marginals such as Redditch, but how much of a

:10:50.:10:55.

difference will they really make? A bigger difference this time than

:10:56.:10:59.

ever, actually, because in the era of coalition politics, Conservatives

:11:00.:11:05.

and Labour, with Josef brought `` with those separate rival targets,

:11:06.:11:08.

many of those places happen to have council elections going on this

:11:09.:11:12.

month. Newcastle`under`Lyme is one of them. David Cameron was there

:11:13.:11:17.

today and he took a bit of a swipe at UKIP. He said he does not need to

:11:18.:11:21.

discredit them when they are doing such a good job of that themselves.

:11:22.:11:26.

Whatever it takes, I will deliver that in out referendum. Labour

:11:27.:11:31.

won't, UKIP can't, I will. Earlier this week, I made clear that I will

:11:32.:11:35.

not lead a government that either could not or did not deliver an

:11:36.:11:41.

in`out referendum. Let me be clear. The British people need to have

:11:42.:11:44.

their say on our membership of the EU. Isn't it something of a

:11:45.:11:50.

departure that he's going after UKIP? An acknowledgement that

:11:51.:11:53.

they're not just going to go away of their own accord? That is right.

:11:54.:11:56.

They may see this as something of a compliment, but they will certainly

:11:57.:12:02.

not take any lectures, UKIP. They say the Conservatives and Labour are

:12:03.:12:08.

not to be trusted. But it is a very crowded marketplace for

:12:09.:12:09.

anti`European parties in these elections. There are no fewer than

:12:10.:12:13.

five of the ten who are contesting it who are anti`European. Yesterday,

:12:14.:12:20.

we heard from Nicky Sinclair, one of two former UKIP MEPs who have

:12:21.:12:26.

started new parties. It is Eurosceptic, it wants to get out of

:12:27.:12:30.

the EU. I have been an MEP for the past ten years, and there is nothing

:12:31.:12:33.

happening there that should concern us. We should leave, because

:12:34.:12:38.

domination from Europe is not something we need. Westminster

:12:39.:12:42.

should make our laws. One size does not fit all. Go to the BBC politics

:12:43.:12:48.

website for a full list of candidates, and my blog will explain

:12:49.:12:55.

more as well. And Patrick will be back with more

:12:56.:12:59.

on this in Sunday Politics from 11 o'clock here on BBC One. He'll be

:13:00.:13:03.

joined live in the studio by three new candidates hoping to enter

:13:04.:13:06.

Parliament in a year's time. The next generation of medics for

:13:07.:13:09.

the armed forces graduated today ` the first to be trained at

:13:10.:13:12.

Whittington Barracks near Lichfield. The Defence Medical Services Centre

:13:13.:13:15.

cost more than a hundred million pounds and opened last month. It's

:13:16.:13:18.

training doctors, nurses and dentists for the army, navy and air

:13:19.:13:25.

force. Giles Latcham reports. Led out by the band of the Royal

:13:26.:13:28.

Engineers, the first batch of medics to earn their spurs at the Armed

:13:29.:13:32.

forces new centre for medical services at Whittington. A proud day

:13:33.:13:38.

for parents and partners and for all involved. I am so proud. It is a big

:13:39.:13:49.

day. It is fantastic bringing all the defence medical services

:13:50.:13:51.

together to make sure we can deliver quality care to the patient. Among

:13:52.:13:54.

those on parade, a Shrewsbury lad who used to be an infantryman. It

:13:55.:13:58.

was his combat experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan that persuaded him

:13:59.:14:02.

to lay down his rifle and pick up a medical kit.. When I am on tour and

:14:03.:14:06.

my friends have been hurt, I wanted to be able to do that little bit

:14:07.:14:13.

extra. I want to give that life`saving treatment to my friends

:14:14.:14:16.

and colleagues, and be that important person. This is an old and

:14:17.:14:21.

historic barracks, but it is a new refurbishment. It has cost 138

:14:22.:14:27.

million. The finishing touches are still being applied. It brings

:14:28.:14:30.

together under the same roof the training for the medics of all the

:14:31.:14:35.

armed forces, the Navy and the army and the air force. It's here on

:14:36.:14:39.

courses lasting six to eight months that trainees are taught skills that

:14:40.:14:42.

might one day save lives in a theatre of war. Another graduate

:14:43.:14:46.

passing out today has her sights set on the front line. I hope to

:14:47.:14:51.

progress on to work for the medical and emergency response team, who

:14:52.:14:57.

work with the helicopters evacuating casualties out of difficult war

:14:58.:15:00.

zones. The centre's created jobs and brought business into the South

:15:01.:15:11.

Staffordshire economy. The ambition, though, is simple ` to provide those

:15:12.:15:15.

protecting us on land sea and air with the best care possible.

:15:16.:15:18.

This is our top story tonight: fly`tipping a major problem as

:15:19.:15:21.

householders dump their garden waste rather than pay to have it

:15:22.:15:24.

collected. Rebecca's standing by with the Bank

:15:25.:15:35.

Holiday weather. Also ahead: Tales of treachery, stealth and espionage

:15:36.:15:39.

` all being filmed in Coventry for a big screen version of Spooks.

:15:40.:15:52.

He's best known for films such as Four Weddings And A Funeral and

:15:53.:15:55.

Notting Hill, but today screen star Hugh Grant was playing a very

:15:56.:15:58.

different role ` promoting a life`saving medical service. The

:15:59.:16:00.

Hollywood actor was in Staffordshire to unveil a rapid response vehicle

:16:01.:16:04.

which is used to tend to patients while an ambulance is on its way.

:16:05.:16:07.

When the 7/7 bombings shattered London seven years ago, first

:16:08.:16:09.

responders were not really around, at the now chairman of the district

:16:10.:16:13.

community of first responders was there. He was photographed helping

:16:14.:16:17.

this woman and became a bit of a celebrity. It was not long after

:16:18.:16:21.

that his phone was hacked by the now defunct News Of The World, which saw

:16:22.:16:25.

him join forces with bona fide celebrity Hugh Grant, also a victim

:16:26.:16:29.

of phone hacking. Together, they have campaigned against press

:16:30.:16:32.

intrusion. Their friendship group, and he finally persuaded the

:16:33.:16:38.

A`lister to come to Burntwood for today's unveiling. He has been on

:16:39.:16:41.

and on for years about asking me to help try and find someone who would

:16:42.:16:46.

donate an ambulance, and I have consistently said yes and

:16:47.:16:50.

consistently done nothing about it. So I feel now, the least I could do

:16:51.:16:54.

was to come and undress this car for him. I now declare this community

:16:55.:17:05.

first responder vehicle responsive! The actor was first to admit that he

:17:06.:17:09.

did not really know anything about the service. It has been an

:17:10.:17:16.

eye`opener. It is very impressive. I did not realise it was all

:17:17.:17:18.

voluntary, and I did not realise all the funding had to be raised mostly

:17:19.:17:26.

on a non`governmental level. There are a number of first responders

:17:27.:17:30.

throughout the West Midlands, but Burntwood has never had its own. We

:17:31.:17:34.

had a response car until December, and that went off the road. So now

:17:35.:17:40.

we have got this vehicle locally, it will be seen attending emergency

:17:41.:17:46.

calls. While the car was supposed to be the star of the show, it was

:17:47.:17:49.

perhaps inevitable that this man was always going to steal the limelight.

:17:50.:17:55.

It was one of the most popular TV series of recent years and now the

:17:56.:17:58.

long`running spy drama Spooks is coming to the big screen. Four years

:17:59.:18:02.

after its final series, Spooks is being made into a movie with a cast

:18:03.:18:07.

of Hollywood stars. And much of the action is being filmed this weekend

:18:08.:18:10.

right here in the Midlands, as Joanne Writtle reports.

:18:11.:18:13.

The moment a terrorist escapes from custody in the centre of Coventry.

:18:14.:18:20.

But this wasn't real. The city's being used for filming dramatic

:18:21.:18:23.

opening scenes of a big screen version of Spooks ` and perhaps

:18:24.:18:26.

never before has someone enthused so much about a parking area. It is

:18:27.:18:37.

fantastic, perfect. It is really visual, very striking. It is

:18:38.:18:40.

normally a lorry park or a coach park. So the great thing is, we have

:18:41.:18:47.

been able to access it. We need access for three days so that we can

:18:48.:18:50.

shoot every moment without having to move out of the way for real

:18:51.:18:56.

traffic. This is an episode of the long running BBC TV drama which

:18:57.:19:00.

centres on MI5 intrigue and dark twists.

:19:01.:19:04.

You are famous for killing people off, so do they all make it to the

:19:05.:19:08.

end of the film? There will be the requisite number of deaths and major

:19:09.:19:14.

plot twists that Spooks fans expect. None of the show's big stars like

:19:15.:19:20.

Peter Firth were on set today. But for this traffic jam on scene, they

:19:21.:19:24.

needed lots of extras, all willing to sit in a gridlock all day. Many

:19:25.:19:31.

of them are local. They selected some of us to bring our cars and

:19:32.:19:36.

just sit in them all day! This will be a multi million pound production,

:19:37.:19:39.

complete even with special effects rain. And it's putting Coventry on

:19:40.:19:46.

the map. It is a travelling circus, making a movie. You have to bring

:19:47.:19:50.

the same people with you to control the props and the lights. But there

:19:51.:19:54.

is a certain amount of local hire and a great deal of local spend, and

:19:55.:19:59.

we hope, if you like, is treated investment show other film`makers

:20:00.:20:03.

that they can bring stuff here. The film will be released worldwide next

:20:04.:20:11.

year. Sport now, and Dan, this is a

:20:12.:20:15.

weekend when relegation is on everyone's minds. Yes, these are

:20:16.:20:17.

nervous times for many Midlands sports fans. In a minute, we'll look

:20:18.:20:25.

at the plight of Birmingham City, but if anything, Worcester rugby

:20:26.:20:28.

club face an even more daunting task. The Warriors need to win both

:20:29.:20:32.

their remaining matches to stay up. Some say relegation would affect the

:20:33.:20:34.

city's profile. This man did his bit to promote the

:20:35.:20:38.

name of Worcester. Today I met someone trying to do the same.

:20:39.:20:41.

Adrian Field's job is a bit different to composer Edward Elgar.

:20:42.:20:46.

He promotes business in Worcester. But if the city's rugby club is

:20:47.:20:50.

relegated ` his job gets that little bit harder. If the worst does

:20:51.:20:53.

happen, it does affect the city centre in terms of the profile and

:20:54.:20:59.

the number of people who come to the city. The club will have smaller

:21:00.:21:06.

support, so it will have an impact. It is an impressive stadium, but if

:21:07.:21:12.

it is to host top`flight rugby next is on, was to have to win both of

:21:13.:21:20.

their games. Worcester's last defeat was at third`placed Bath. Tomorrow

:21:21.:21:24.

they're away to league leaders Saracens who last week won their

:21:25.:21:27.

european cup semifinal by a record margin. Everyone watched Saracens

:21:28.:21:32.

this week. We understand the size of the task. We will just have to do

:21:33.:21:37.

the best we can and make sure we represent this club. We understand

:21:38.:21:46.

the prerequisite. Despite Worcester's miserable season, this

:21:47.:21:49.

week full`back Chris Pennell was named on a six man short list for

:21:50.:21:53.

Premiership player of the season. It is great. I am really pleased to

:21:54.:21:58.

even be considered. It is something for the CV. The wife was very happy.

:21:59.:22:04.

It is a positive I can take from what has been a poor season overall

:22:05.:22:11.

for us as a team. And if Worcester's rugby club is relegated, they'll

:22:12.:22:14.

have to rely a little more heavily on one of their former greats to

:22:15.:22:22.

keep the visitors coming. But on the plus side for Worcester,

:22:23.:22:25.

the basketball side, the Wolves are going well. Really well. And they

:22:26.:22:29.

play the Sheffield Sharks in the BBL play`off semi`finals this weekend.

:22:30.:22:36.

And two rugby teams enjoying better days are Rugby Lions and Leek, both

:22:37.:22:40.

involved in Twickenham finals this weekend. But back to that word,

:22:41.:22:43.

relegation. That could happen to Birmingham City in the Championship

:22:44.:22:47.

tomorrow. And it will happen if they lose at Bolton tomorrow. A point

:22:48.:22:50.

could be enough to save them depending on results elsewhere. But

:22:51.:22:53.

manager Lee Clark says they're not going to Bolton just to defend. We

:22:54.:22:56.

don't purposely set out to go for a point anywhere, because if you play

:22:57.:22:59.

that game, we certainly can't afford it. Our defensive record will tell

:23:00.:23:03.

you that we can't just take a point. We have got to go for the jugular

:23:04.:23:06.

and try and win. And Villa aren't safe yet in the

:23:07.:23:13.

Premier League. They're not. Tomorrow's home game against Hull is

:23:14.:23:17.

their best chance left of a win ` but they may be effectively safe

:23:18.:23:20.

anyway after this weekend, depending on other results.

:23:21.:23:23.

This weekend sees the second semifinal of the Songs of Praise

:23:24.:23:26.

School Choir of the Year competition. Last Sunday it was

:23:27.:23:29.

junior schools, now it's the turn for senior schools and Hereford's

:23:30.:23:32.

Cathedral School choir's already doing rather well.

:23:33.:23:43.

The Cantabile girls choir have been rehearsing ahead of their semifinal

:23:44.:23:46.

appearance in the Songs of Praise school choir of the year. They'll be

:23:47.:23:51.

performing two songs to a panel of judges at Birmingham's International

:23:52.:23:54.

Convention centre, and at this late stage, are quietly confident. They

:23:55.:24:02.

picked up on a few points that we need to improve on, but one we are

:24:03.:24:07.

in there and we have got the energy of a room and everyone is excited,

:24:08.:24:11.

we will pull it out of the bag. It was a chance to see how big the

:24:12.:24:16.

stage was. It was constructive and we got some feedback to improve. If

:24:17.:24:24.

they win on Sunday, they'll go through to the finals the following

:24:25.:24:29.

week. It'll be just reward for all their hard work back in Hereford,

:24:30.:24:32.

where they've been refining their performances under the expertise of

:24:33.:24:38.

choir master Jo Williamson. I make big demands on them. I make them

:24:39.:24:42.

memorise things, I make them watch me constantly, so this phase is

:24:43.:24:47.

imprinted in their nightmares. But they get results at the end. One of

:24:48.:24:56.

those deciding their fate, is Gareth Malone of The Choir fame ` last week

:24:57.:24:59.

they were judging the junior section and so far he's impressed with the

:25:00.:25:03.

quality of this year's entrants. The standard is incredible. I have been

:25:04.:25:05.

really surprised. Considering that these choirs are from single

:25:06.:25:09.

schools, that is a small group to choose from. There are some very

:25:10.:25:12.

good musicianship. Cantabile also reached the semi`finals in 2012.

:25:13.:25:17.

They were very disappointed a few years ago, when they did not get

:25:18.:25:20.

through to the finals. But this year, we are really going for it.

:25:21.:25:23.

So, Hereford will be tuning in to see whether these young vocalists

:25:24.:25:25.

can go one better. Now, the Bank Holiday weekend hoves

:25:26.:25:35.

into view. Three days of rain as usual, Rebecca? No. You expect when,

:25:36.:25:43.

but it is looking better than that. Fine and dry is the theme for the

:25:44.:25:47.

next few days. Don't get too excited, we are not talking

:25:48.:25:51.

wall`to`wall sunshine. We have got some chilly nights to come.

:25:52.:25:56.

Gardeners, be aware, we could get a touch of frost. We have looked

:25:57.:26:00.

sunshine to come over the next few days, but it will be cloudy at times

:26:01.:26:04.

as well. Had Russia dominates for the next few days. It starts to push

:26:05.:26:10.

in tonight `` high`pressure. For the next few hours, we start to see that

:26:11.:26:16.

cloud clearing. Under those clear skies, our temperatures will

:26:17.:26:20.

plummet. Further west, where we keep the cloud for longer, that will help

:26:21.:26:25.

temperatures a bit. But in the east, we are dipping into single figures,

:26:26.:26:30.

possibly even minus figures in the countryside. We start rather cold

:26:31.:26:33.

tomorrow, but it will not be a bad day. Some good sunshine in the

:26:34.:26:39.

morning. We will see cloud filling in from the West, giving some hazy

:26:40.:26:44.

sunshine. Temperatures will do a little better than today. Not a bad

:26:45.:26:49.

day, but we consider `` continue to see the cloud piling in. Overnight,

:26:50.:26:56.

we could see some rain. But all that cloud will help keep temperatures up

:26:57.:27:03.

a bit, so a mild night than tonight. Sunday is not looking too bad. We

:27:04.:27:08.

have got plenty of cloud about. There will be rain, particularly

:27:09.:27:12.

across the north Midlands, but good sunshine in the afternoon. And it is

:27:13.:27:19.

similar for the Bank Holiday Monday. Another settled day. Temperatures

:27:20.:27:24.

are climbing a bit. Plenty of cloud about, so I will see if I can do

:27:25.:27:27.

better for the bank holiday at the end of the month.

:27:28.:27:36.

The main headline tonight: And two care workers are charged with

:27:37.:27:39.

manslaughter following the death of a 91`year`old woman. That was the

:27:40.:27:43.

Midlands Today. I'll be back at ten o'clock with your latest update.

:27:44.:27:46.

Have a good evening and a terrific Bank

:27:47.:28:06.

Men are even less tolerant of women than they were before.

:28:07.:28:07.

It's shocking it'd happen in a public place.

:28:08.:28:11.

I don't find it funny, but I don't find it offensive.

:28:12.:28:14.

It really is vile. Shock value sells.

:28:15.:28:16.

Men are even less tolerant of women than they were before.

:28:17.:28:19.

The hatred of women. Some people are offended.

:28:20.:28:22.

Others think women should just man up.

:28:23.:28:24.

and even misogyny socially acceptable?

:28:25.:28:28.

Join me, Kirsty Wark, as I investigate...
