The Midlands remembers ` a special service at the National

:00:00.:00:08.

Memorial Arboretum for the 70th anniversary of the D`day landings.

:00:09.:00:11.

We'll hear from veterans who changed the course of the second world war.

:00:12.:00:25.

We had no sense of liberating Europe or anything else.

:00:26.:00:32.

A plea for a change to the way 999 calls are handldd,

:00:33.:00:35.

from the family of a 6 month old who died starved of oxygen

:00:36.:00:38.

Cainan didn't get the chance to survive.

:00:39.:00:42.

Frustrated fans fear the worse, Hereford United still waiting to

:00:43.:00:47.

out if they've been kicked out of the Conference.

:00:48.:00:49.

to Hollywood, the couple whose traditional craft

:00:50.:00:53.

And there's a storm brewing this weekend ` with heavy rain and

:00:54.:01:01.

thunderstorms tomorrow ` but Sunday is looking much more appealhng.

:01:02.:01:04.

Your full weekend forecast is coming up later.

:01:05.:01:16.

70 years after the D`Day landings in Normandy, tributes have been paid

:01:17.:01:20.

across the Midlands to the len who changed the course of World War two.

:01:21.:01:24.

For those who couldn't make it to France, a ceremony was held

:01:25.:01:27.

at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

:01:28.:01:31.

As Ben Godfrey reports, hundreds came to remember

:01:32.:01:33.

Reverend Dick Sargent was jtst 9 when he reached Utah beach

:01:34.:01:49.

The Stafford clergyman led 200 men, battling waves

:01:50.:01:57.

and machine gunfire during those historic first landings.

:01:58.:02:01.

The water was shallow, we shouldn't have been therd,

:02:02.:02:04.

we were on the wrong beach, we'd missed it by a mile.

:02:05.:02:07.

And I spent about half an hour in the water, shouldering

:02:08.:02:10.

the boats off the sandbanks so they could put the soldiers down.

:02:11.:02:15.

It sounds mundane, but it was the job.

:02:16.:02:18.

Hundreds stood in silence at the Normandy Veterans Melorial,

:02:19.:02:24.

honouring those who paid the ultimate price.

:02:25.:02:28.

We had no sense of liberating Europe or he rose or anything else, we just

:02:29.:02:37.

Among those paying respects, a former Royal Marine, born on D`Day.

:02:38.:02:45.

Yeah, I was born on the 6th of the 6th, 1944 at 6 o'clock.

:02:46.:02:48.

I remember my sister telling me that mx mother

:02:49.:02:51.

had been interviewed about ly birth because of the specific timd.

:02:52.:02:57.

Earlier this week, D`Day veterans from across the West Midlands

:02:58.:03:00.

Besides which, it will be the last trip.

:03:01.:03:06.

It will be more poignant, that's all.

:03:07.:03:09.

It's a privilege to go back and remember our old comrades, xou know.

:03:10.:03:13.

90`year`old Geoff Russon from Cradley Heath remembers landing

:03:14.:03:19.

on Juno beach vividly, servhng with the Royal Army Service Corps.

:03:20.:03:26.

When we went over, you becale a man, in every aspect of the word,

:03:27.:03:33.

because, what you saw, you couldn't believe.

:03:34.:03:40.

Today has also been about sxmbols, and this is one of them.

:03:41.:03:43.

This is a pennant that was `ttached to the first landing craft to arrive

:03:44.:03:47.

This commemoration may be the last for many but it was also

:03:48.:03:55.

For one generation to inspire the next.

:03:56.:03:59.

Ben Godfrey, BBC Midlands Today at the National Memorial Arboretum.

:04:00.:04:10.

In Coventry, a film which w`s the culmination of months of work

:04:11.:04:13.

between local schoolchildren and Normandy veterans was shown during

:04:14.:04:16.

It's hoped this will keep the memory of what happened during World War

:04:17.:04:21.

Exactly 70 years after he l`nded on a Normandy beach Dennis Davison

:04:22.:04:30.

paused to think of fallen comrades today, btt he was

:04:31.:04:34.

There's only a few of us left, and who is going to carry on

:04:35.:04:42.

The younger generation, at Coventry Cathedral to sed the

:04:43.:04:48.

It's a film made by school pupils and veterans working togethdr,

:04:49.:04:56.

commemorating D`Day but chalpioning peace through unity.

:04:57.:05:04.

It was a great bunch of lads, though.

:05:05.:05:06.

My life was in his hands, and he had that chance to khll me,

:05:07.:05:14.

Ninety students took part in this project, working with a tot`l of 40

:05:15.:05:33.

veterans, six of them specifically survivors of the Normandy bdaches.

:05:34.:05:39.

The students have so much respect for the vetdrans,

:05:40.:05:41.

and it is amazing to see thdm listen so intently to their stories,

:05:42.:05:45.

I tried not to cry, because I thought it was really emotional time

:05:46.:05:52.

to hear their stories, and it has made me have another

:05:53.:05:57.

Just didn't realise that those people have been doing good for us

:05:58.:06:02.

and fighting the war for us and risking their lives for everyone.

:06:03.:06:05.

And in the grounds of the cathedral destroyed by war,

:06:06.:06:08.

the day ended with a peace picnic, a chance to share some memories

:06:09.:06:12.

Earlier I spoke to Ken Reynolds from Hednesford who has travelled

:06:13.:06:24.

Ken served with the Royal Artillery and arrived on Sword Beach, a couple

:06:25.:06:28.

I spoke to him a little earlier amid loud music, before

:06:29.:06:35.

the band struck up, he told me how he found today's 70th annivdrsary.

:06:36.:06:39.

Can you just give me an ide`, Ken, of your role in the D Day l`ndings?

:06:40.:06:47.

I understand that you were on Sword Beach.

:06:48.:06:50.

Yeah, but I was in charge of the rear party so I had to catch

:06:51.:06:54.

And what did you find when you got there?

:06:55.:07:02.

Everybody doing everything but nobody knowing quite wh`t was

:07:03.:07:10.

Then we got the goods together then and put some good barrages down

:07:11.:07:18.

And you can see highlights from the commemorations in France

:07:19.:07:33.

in a special programme on BBC 2 at 8.00pm tonight.

:07:34.:07:35.

You're watching Midlands Today, good to have you with us,

:07:36.:07:38.

Coping without Hollie, how setting up a charitable trust

:07:39.:07:42.

has helped the family of thd murdered Gloucester hairdresser

:07:43.:07:49.

A six`month`old baby died and a second almost lost

:07:50.:07:51.

his life within two months of each other, after 999 calls were not

:07:52.:07:55.

West Midlands Ambulance Service assessed them as red 2 `

:07:56.:07:59.

which means that an ambulance isn't automatically

:08:00.:08:01.

Our health Correspondent, Michele Paduano, reports.

:08:02.:08:08.

Cainan was just six`months`old when he developed breathing diffhculties.

:08:09.:08:10.

An ambulance was two minutes away in Wolverhampton,

:08:11.:08:13.

But it was not classed as the most urgent case.

:08:14.:08:18.

It was registered as a Red 2 and a paramedic car,

:08:19.:08:21.

We lost him, we feel, because of a catalogue errors .

:08:22.:08:29.

He didn't get the chance to survive, Cainan didn't get

:08:30.:08:32.

West Midlands Ambulance Service changed

:08:33.:08:38.

its advice to call handlers within weeks of his death in Octobdr,

:08:39.:08:42.

2012 so that babies breathing abnormally are sent an ambulance.

:08:43.:08:46.

We would not want this to h`ppen again unnecessarily, and thd word

:08:47.:08:49.

unnecessarily is key, because we have to live with the questhon,

:08:50.:08:52.

But it did happen again ` two months later.

:08:53.:09:03.

Thomas Passant who is now ndarly two was having breathing diffictlties

:09:04.:09:06.

He too was classed as red 2 and sent a paramedic in a c`r.

:09:07.:09:12.

It then took 41 minutes to get an ambulance to him.

:09:13.:09:15.

Thomas suffered an arrest in the ambulance and almost died.

:09:16.:09:18.

He wasn't breathing, he was hardly breathing, he was fighting for

:09:19.:09:23.

You know, there is no doubt about it, that

:09:24.:09:29.

Our grandson was laying on the floor fighting for hhs life.

:09:30.:09:36.

Paul Passant campaigned for more ambulances in Shropshire,

:09:37.:09:38.

but he was never told that an ambulance was available `t the

:09:39.:09:41.

time of their call and could have got Thomas to hospital much sooner.

:09:42.:09:45.

The damage could have been irreparable.

:09:46.:09:47.

It was horrendous for all of the family watching a six`wdek`old

:09:48.:09:53.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said that

:09:54.:09:57.

Though in the case of Thomas, it accepts that the investigathon was

:09:58.:10:02.

poor and there was no clear reason why an ambulance wasn't sent.

:10:03.:10:06.

West Midlands Ambulance Service has apologised to Paul Passant

:10:07.:10:08.

for overlooking the fact th`t there was an Ambulance available

:10:09.:10:11.

As soon as it was confirmed, the Chief Executive Anthony Marsh

:10:12.:10:16.

They said insufficient time was given for the original

:10:17.:10:20.

investigation, because they are more concerned about getting mord and

:10:21.:10:23.

New guidance on babies with breathing difficulties have been

:10:24.:10:30.

brought in making them top priority, Michele Paduano, BBC Midland today.

:10:31.:10:35.

There's been chaos on a number of roads in the Midlands today.

:10:36.:10:38.

The M6 was shut southbound at junction 4a for most of the day,

:10:39.:10:42.

A man died following a crash on the A5 at Shrewsbury,

:10:43.:10:46.

and a second multiple vehicle crash nearby caused long traffic jams

:10:47.:10:49.

Some people have been stuck for more than seven hours.

:10:50.:10:52.

This was seen on the a five shortly afterwards police followed that

:10:53.:11:18.

car. It crashed into a lamp post killing the 20`year`old driver and

:11:19.:11:21.

his 19`year`old passenger is seriously ill tonight in hospital.

:11:22.:11:26.

Several hours later there w`s that second accident, which was between

:11:27.:11:32.

Preston Island and the' 54. Several vehicles involved, several people

:11:33.:11:36.

injured, including a three`xear`old child. This has caused chaos

:11:37.:11:42.

throughout the day. Major ddlays, roads at a standstill. Several

:11:43.:11:46.

people told me they had important exams on today, and several people

:11:47.:11:50.

didn't make a dent. Were thdre any help available? Yes, there was some

:11:51.:12:01.

help available. The police were out, the police helicopter monitoring

:12:02.:12:04.

traffic, and also the high which it agency tried to move part of the

:12:05.:12:09.

central reservation on the @5. They are asking motorists to try to avoid

:12:10.:12:12.

the area if at all possible. And for the latest on

updates on BBC Radio Shropshire The ex`boyfriend

:12:21.:12:22.

of a hairdresser has pleaded guilty to stabbing her as she workdd

:12:23.:12:25.

in a salon in Gloucester. Asher Maslin murdered 20`ye`r`old

:12:26.:12:28.

Hollie Gazzard in February. Hollie's father told

:12:29.:12:30.

our reporter Steve Knibbs that setting up a charitable trust

:12:31.:12:33.

in her memory has helped thdm cope. She was very small in stature, but

:12:34.:12:37.

what she lacked in height she made She always lit the room up

:12:38.:12:40.

and people said her smile w`s everything about her, and obviously

:12:41.:12:45.

being a hairdresser, you have seen the pictures of her, her hahr is

:12:46.:12:48.

never the same in any two phctures. The words to describe his d`ughter

:12:49.:12:52.

come easily to Nick Gazzard and since her death, Hollie's

:12:53.:12:57.

personality has also touched, It astonished us, really ,

:12:58.:13:00.

in terms of the amount of people that have come forward

:13:01.:13:05.

and said we knew Hollie, we had been in contact with her

:13:06.:13:08.

she was such a fun`loving ghrl, she Hollie's family are determined that

:13:09.:13:12.

she will live on not just for them, The trust now set up in her name

:13:13.:13:18.

has already raised nearly ?40,0 0. It will pay to train aspiring

what happened to Holly. For us, for her friends,

:13:27.:13:29.

and the rest of her family. But we can focus

:13:30.:13:32.

on something positive. And we wanted the trust to be

:13:33.:13:37.

something positive that camd out Money will also go to local

charities that worked to trx The first one being domestic abuse

program to go into schools, to talk to people about domestic abtse and

for us and the community. Hollie's family now all wear

her with them all the time. From the pain and tragedy

of Hollie's death, her family now hope much will be

:14:22.:14:25.

this is our top story tonight: The Midlands remembers `

:14:26.:14:39.

a special service at the National Memorial Arboretum for the 70th

:14:40.:14:42.

anniversary of the D`day landings. Your detailed weather forec`st

:14:43.:14:45.

to come shortly from Rebecc`. Fifty years on,

:14:46.:14:47.

survivors from a train crash involving 230 schoolchildren look

:14:48.:14:50.

back at a remarkable recovery. And spinning a yarn,

:14:51.:14:55.

the Staffordshire couple who played Hereford United have been ghven one

:14:56.:14:57.

last chance to save their place The club have been given

:14:58.:15:09.

until tomorrow morning to p`y their football creditors

:15:10.:15:13.

including the player's wages. Well,

:15:14.:15:16.

Ian Winter is at their ground now. This must be a relief to thd fans,

:15:17.:15:18.

Ian. If a lot of very worried faces in

:15:19.:15:33.

Hereford today. People who care passionately about their football

:15:34.:15:37.

club. People who fear that their club would be kicked out of the

:15:38.:15:42.

conference this afternoon. H want to be watching them in the futtre in

:15:43.:15:46.

the conference or in the Football League. It almost feels likd a death

:15:47.:15:52.

in the family. We just don't know what is happening. I don't know We

:15:53.:15:56.

are waiting for some news. Hopefully it will be good news, but at the

:15:57.:16:02.

moment it is looking very bleak I think they are in intensive care at

:16:03.:16:07.

the moment. At 6:30am this lorning, news came of that the prefix. Let's

:16:08.:16:12.

talk to Keith Dodd from the supporters Association. Your

:16:13.:16:17.

reaction? Absolutely delighted. We need to make sure the owner takes

:16:18.:16:20.

full advantage of this and pays the bill tomorrow. You are thinking now

:16:21.:16:24.

at the last chance saloon. Definitely we cant mess this one up

:16:25.:16:28.

now. We have to make sure that bill is paid tomorrow. Martin Watson is

:16:29.:16:32.

from the supporters trust. How confident are you that the new

:16:33.:16:36.

owners will deliver the ?140,00 needed by tomorrow morning? This

:16:37.:16:43.

really is the last chance now. It was supposed to be paid yesterday.

:16:44.:16:48.

10am tomorrow, if we haven't played it, we have to pay it. Can xou even

:16:49.:16:53.

contemplate what the possibhlity of relegation would mean for this club?

:16:54.:16:59.

We are more than ?19 in debt. It doesn't bear thinking about. OK

:17:00.:17:06.

thank you. A couple of months ago, Hereford United survived on goal

:17:07.:17:10.

difference only. Tonight's battle for survival could be just `s close

:17:11.:17:13.

and we could also go right to the wire. Back to you.

:17:14.:17:19.

At the end of a week in which the Government proposdd

:17:20.:17:23.

a new generation of garden cities, the National Trust has raisdd

:17:24.:17:26.

the possibility of one being built in the Black Country, which could

:17:27.:17:29.

possibly be called 'Albion'. A Staffordshire MP and Government

:17:30.:17:32.

minister has told the BBC the top priority for future housing

:17:33.:17:35.

developments should be to use 'brown field sites.

:17:36.:17:36.

Nel Mac I think the point about the garden cities is that it is making

:17:37.:17:41.

development where local people want it. People in Staffordshire are very

:17:42.:17:47.

clear that when we got brown field sites, we need housing, we have

:17:48.:17:51.

villages where housing is ndeded. Local communities make the decision

:17:52.:17:52.

where that housing should bd. field sites.

:17:53.:17:58.

And the Sunday Politics will also have a special report on proposals

:17:59.:18:01.

for Shropshire Fire and Rescue to share control room services with

:18:02.:18:03.

neighbouring brigades. That's on BBC One from 11.00am

:18:04.:18:05.

on Sunday. The Second Battalion,

:18:06.:18:05.

the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers have marched through

:18:06.:18:07.

Warwick today, as they recehved It was probably the last tile

:18:08.:18:10.

the soldiers will be on par`de there, as the battalion is due to be

:18:11.:18:14.

disbanded in August, as part of A hero's welcome for The troops

:18:15.:18:23.

in Warwick today. Warwickshire County Council has

:18:24.:18:27.

awarded the freedom of the county to The Royal Regiment of Fusilhers

:18:28.:18:31.

And, as a show pf thanks, the 2nd Battalion took part

:18:32.:18:33.

in a special parade. Looking on was 91`year`old

:18:34.:18:36.

Jean Waldrop, whose grandson was part of the landing.

:18:37.:18:40.

So difficult because they all look so much alike, but he told

:18:41.:18:44.

us that he had a sword, and we looked out for him and saw him.

:18:45.:18:48.

And captain Robert King also has a family connection to the regiment.

:18:49.:18:50.

My grandfather served in The Royal Regiment on D`Day,

:18:51.:18:54.

this day 70 years ago, where he won the military Cross

:18:55.:18:57.

and also my father, who was here watching the 2nd Battalion, between

:18:58.:19:01.

1969 and 1988, so for me to then carry that tradition on is `mazing.

:19:02.:19:04.

The County Council says it hs keen to capitalise on tradition

:19:05.:19:07.

and the regiment's strong rdlation with Warwickshire.

:19:08.:19:10.

They are part of our DNA, wd are a strong recruiting area for them.

:19:11.:19:14.

And we felt we wanted that commitment to be exposed

:19:15.:19:19.

and nationally exposed. It is really important for ts that

:19:20.:19:22.

the Fusiliers are welcomed `s part of the family of Warwickshire.

:19:23.:19:27.

It seemed the spectators couldn't agrde more.

:19:28.:19:32.

It is really worthwhile. It gives them a big opportunity to

:19:33.:19:36.

show everybody what they can do He could be the future, couldn't he?

:19:37.:19:41.

He could be one of the future soldiers here, and it is

:19:42.:19:45.

very good to show how proud we are of our actual citizens and how well

:19:46.:19:48.

they have looked after country. I think we are very lucky

:19:49.:19:51.

to have such people. This parade holds additional

:19:52.:19:55.

significance because it will be one of the last

:19:56.:19:59.

ceremonial occasions by the troops from the 2nd Battalion as the merger

:20:00.:20:03.

with the 1st Battalion in Atgust. A salute for the Duke of Kent,

:20:04.:20:08.

an historic day for the reghment. Amy Cole, BBC Midlands Todax,

:20:11.:20:13.

for a Staffordshire town, as people turned out to mark

:20:14.:20:15.

the fiftieth anniversary of a train Two children and a rail worker died,

:20:16.:20:19.

whilst others lost limbs on the so called Lollipop Express, which

their destination in York. The train, known as the Lollipop

:20:46.:20:49.

Express, derailed in Cheshire. I was in a coma for three months,
