The headlines tonight: suspected paedophiles.

:00:00.:00:07.

All clear for a Warwickshird hospital, a year after it w`s put

:00:08.:00:09.

into special measures over concerns about death rates.

:00:10.:00:15.

The staff in the organisation have worked so had to get us out of

:00:16.:00:21.

special measures. We are confident about the quality of care provided.

:00:22.:00:25.

We've been inside the hospital today to find

:00:26.:00:27.

Prince William in Coventry, marking the sacrifice

:00:28.:00:31.

Awesome. It was so cool. We had never seen him in the person.

:00:32.:00:41.

Good news on jobs, as unemployment in

:00:42.:00:43.

Just announced ` the top songs that best represent

:00:44.:00:47.

Given that we only had an afternoon to do it, it was difficult. So we

:00:48.:01:01.

had to be pretty brutal, to be honest.

:01:02.:01:03.

And with warnings of heatwaves and thunderstorms, it could all go

:01:04.:01:06.

Get all the detail in the forecast later.

:01:07.:01:18.

A hospital in Warwickshire has been taken out of special measurds a year

:01:19.:01:23.

The George Eliot in Nuneaton was criticised over levels of c`re

:01:24.:01:27.

It was one of a number of NHS trusts which were inspected in the wake

:01:28.:01:34.

Our health correspondent Michele Paduano is here now.

:01:35.:01:38.

Absolutely. Improvements at the George Eliot Hospital and other

:01:39.:01:50.

hospitals around the countrx were today described by the Health

:01:51.:01:52.

Secretary Jeremy Hunt as encouraging progress.

:01:53.:01:56.

But Burton Hospital in Staffordshire tonight remains in special leasures,

:01:57.:01:58.

so it's not a completely clean bill of health.

:01:59.:02:01.

89`year`old Ruby Chambers had cancer.

:02:02.:02:02.

Last July, she was left in `gony at the George Eliot Hospital.

:02:03.:02:09.

Her daughter, a doctor who ran an NHS trust,

:02:10.:02:11.

says her mum went into hosphtal on morphine but was given paracetamol.

:02:12.:02:14.

Ruby wasn't seen by a medic for two days.

:02:15.:02:16.

She was crying out in pain and distress

:02:17.:02:18.

And it seemed that nobody rdally cared about this elderly lady.

:02:19.:02:24.

And their response was that she needed to be in a side ward so that

:02:25.:02:28.

This dementia and frail elddrly ward was started just six months ago

:02:29.:02:37.

It concentrates medical expdrtise, and as far as 81`year`old N`ncy

:02:38.:02:40.

I've only been here a coupld of days but they have looked

:02:41.:02:47.

The George Eliot Hospital no longer has high death rates.

:02:48.:02:55.

In this 41`bed assessment unit, patients are seen and diagnosed

:02:56.:02:58.

It has also meant the acciddnt and emergency department is working

:02:59.:03:05.

I think the staff in the organisation have worked so hard

:03:06.:03:09.

We are really confident now in terms of the quality of care we are

:03:10.:03:15.

providing and it is down to every member of the George Eliot team

:03:16.:03:18.

The hospital has invested in 12 more doctors and 38 ntrses,

:03:19.:03:21.

but it has also changed atthtudes and the way staff work.

:03:22.:03:25.

It takes good management but it also takes money.

:03:26.:03:27.

This hospital has spent ?5 lillion getting out of intensive care.

:03:28.:03:31.

But with NHS finances in such a critical state, this trust's future

:03:32.:03:35.

And that is an even bigger headache for the Queen's Hospital in Burton.

:03:36.:03:41.

It failed to come out of special measures today.

:03:42.:03:43.

The trust says its awaiting further feedback and since April has ensured

:03:44.:03:49.

that immediate action was t`ken in response to any feedback.

:03:50.:03:53.

As for George Eliot Hospital, it is celebrating success, but accepts

:03:54.:03:56.

The George Eliot has also bdnefited from support from the

:03:57.:04:05.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, hasn't it?

:04:06.:04:09.

That's right. It is a systel called by dealing and the idea is that

:04:10.:04:14.

things for example like a theatre manager being sent to Georgd Eliot

:04:15.:04:20.

to help them out for a year to improve processes. They havd had

:04:21.:04:24.

doctors looking at death rates to see things can be done diffdrently.

:04:25.:04:27.

Interestingly, the same system is supposed happened at Barton on Trent

:04:28.:04:31.

at the Queen's Hospital. Thd Department of Health is intdrested

:04:32.:04:36.

in this idea. Peak`time for Birmingham is in Kent today working

:04:37.:04:39.

with the Medway Hospital to try and turn them around with their

:04:40.:04:42.

problems. `` a team from Birmingham. Great to have you with

the teenagers determined to climb the career ladder

by running their own businesses Prince William was in Coventry today

:04:53.:04:56.

to launch a scheme to preserve the memory of those who paid the

:04:57.:04:59.

ultimate sacrifice in the Great War. The Duke of Cambridge dedic`ted

:05:00.:05:03.

the city's War Memorial Park as a Centenary Field,

:05:04.:05:06.

the first of 500 parks to bd awarded special status to commemorate the

of history? Like, we have never actuallx

:05:30.:05:31.

seen him in person. This is the Duke of Cambridge's

:05:32.:05:41.

first official visit here to Coventry and it is also

:05:42.:05:43.

his first official engagement as president of the trust,

:05:44.:05:49.

a job at his heart of inherhted from as president of the trust,

but the Duke had handwritten It read, remembering those who

by war, so they know what this park The Duke's hands`on visit

about remembering the past In 1918, a town committee w`s

formed in Coventry to decidd how They decided that a park with

These images from 1927 show Earl Haig ` founder of the Royal British

:08:29.:08:31.

Legion ` unveiling the 87`fdet`high cenotaph carved from Portland stone.

:08:32.:08:33.

Corporal Arthur Hutt was a guest of honour.

:08:34.:08:35.

The soldier, from the Royal Warwickshire Regiment,

:08:36.:08:37.

was the first from Coventry to be awarded the Victoria Cross.

:08:38.:08:44.

With him being probably a more mature man to the men he was with,

:08:45.:08:51.

he took over, advanced, took a trench, shot an officer and three

:08:52.:08:56.

machine gunners. When he got back to the original trenches, he found out

:08:57.:09:00.

there were three or four men who were injured lying out in the no

:09:01.:09:06.

man's land. He went and carried four of these men back.

:09:07.:09:09.

It?s an act of bravery with a sad ending.

:09:10.:09:12.

Arthur's Victoria Cross is lissing, presumed stolen in the 1940s.

:09:13.:09:14.

Inside the memorial is a place few get to see.

:09:15.:09:21.

This room is called the chalber of silence and is only usually open

:09:22.:09:26.

during Remembrance Sunday. Ht carries all the names from those in

War Memorial Park attracts 400, 00 visitors a year,

:09:34.:09:35.

staging community events like the popular Godiva Festival.

:09:36.:10:00.

That's pressure on Michael Shale, part of a te`m of

:10:01.:10:02.

tending the flowers, shrubs and dozens of copper beeches.

:10:03.:10:05.

This councillor in charge of the park was keen to speak about the

:10:06.:10:08.

park's significance until hd told me about his childhood antics here

:10:09.:10:11.

Trying to climb up the trees was an issue. That was easy, getting down

:10:12.:10:13.

was difficult. Having to get pain was difficult. Having to get pain

:10:14.:10:24.

instead, tell us down. `` Mhchael Palin my parents.

:10:25.:10:29.

For thousands of families, this park is embedded in many a lemory.

:10:30.:10:32.

Now with its future secure, it'll help make many more.

:10:33.:10:35.

A series of protests have bden organised involving people

:10:36.:10:37.

from the Arab and Asian comlunities in Birmingham to demonstratd

:10:38.:10:39.

A small group gathered in the city centre this evening, with more

Palestinians claim more than 17 people have been killed

:10:45.:10:48.

since the Israeli air strikds began a week ago.

:10:49.:10:55.

Peace`loving people across the world have come out and said we w`nt to

:10:56.:11:00.

stop what is going on. It is totally unfair on civilians in Gaza who have

:11:01.:11:04.

been murdered by the Israelh Government.

:11:05.:11:05.

Unemployment across the Midlands has fallen oncd again.

:11:06.:11:07.

It's down by 22,000 on the previous quarter.

:11:08.:11:09.

There are now 202,000 peopld out of work.

:11:10.:11:13.

It means 7.4% of the working population here is unemploydd.

:11:14.:11:17.

Despite the fall, the number of young people out of

Our business correspondent Peter Plisner has been findhng out.

:11:22.:11:33.

Apprenticeships, OK? That is an option. What other options `re

:11:34.:11:37.

there? Young people getting careers advice

:11:38.:11:39.

at Wednesfield High School These pupils will be

:11:40.:11:42.

the first to be required by law to remain in education or

:11:43.:11:44.

training until they're 18. It gives you more opportunities to

:11:45.:11:50.

get more knowledge about thhngs that you want to do when you're older. It

:11:51.:11:55.

is better because you have lore time to get skills rather than ldaving at

:11:56.:11:57.

16 and doing what you want to do. For those who don't want to stay

:11:58.:12:01.

on for sixth form, now it?s schools and people like Matt Smallwood who

:12:02.:12:04.

have to find the alternativds. There are many different options out

:12:05.:12:09.

there. With the apprenticeship schemes, Mosul and the likes of

:12:10.:12:17.

science, technology and maths, but also various training providers that

:12:18.:12:22.

have come on board with the new Government scheme.

:12:23.:12:25.

It's the next few weeks? tile, he'll start working at

:12:26.:12:30.

In an apprenticeship, you are living on the job and gain experience that

:12:31.:12:40.

someone at university might not be getting. Here they take on five

:12:41.:12:47.

apprentices every year and for the past two years, they have bden

:12:48.:12:52.

school leavers. They are also encouraged to study for a ddgree

:12:53.:12:55.

whilst they are working. Thd links with schools and essential because

:12:56.:12:57.

local schools have our future employees. We have links with them

:12:58.:13:01.

because we can recruit the best people and we need the best people

:13:02.:13:04.

here who we will train for the future of our business.

:13:05.:13:10.

And for those for whom sixth form or apprenticeships aren't right,

:13:11.:13:13.

there's help in the shape of special training providers

:13:14.:13:15.

Most of the schools encourage children to become more confident,

:13:16.:13:31.

look at timekeeping, make stre they are more confident and have good

:13:32.:13:35.

communication skills. And look at getting them ready for employment.

:13:36.:13:38.

In the past, for many, leaving school and being undmployed

:13:39.:13:40.

Now things appear to be changing and hopefully that'll mean lore

The man at the centre of thd of the alleged Trojan Horse school

:13:45.:13:50.

takeover plot in Birmingham has told Midlands Today he's been unfairly

:13:51.:13:53.

Tahir Alam was, until yesterday the chairman of

:13:54.:13:59.

He's been in the spotlight since allegations surfaced about hard`line

:14:00.:14:05.

Muslims trying to extend thdir influence in schools, including

:14:06.:14:08.

I spoke to him earlier and began by asking him

:14:09.:14:14.

For me to consider resignathon is not an easy thing because wd have

:14:15.:14:26.

built success in a highly ddprived area over many years. That hs

:14:27.:14:30.

something to be maintained. Why have you resigned then? This campaign

:14:31.:14:35.

that we have been experienchng, which I believe is politically

:14:36.:14:40.

motivated, and has lasted for five months now, we kind of reached a

:14:41.:14:44.

point where we have all the Ofsted inspection reports that would see

:14:45.:14:48.

our school is inadequate. Wd can test and do not accept that. Why

:14:49.:14:56.

have they said it? Are very strong `` it is a very strong thing for

:14:57.:15:01.

Ofsted to say. It is. Our school's results speak for itself. From our

:15:02.:15:06.

point of view, that is why we have challenged that. But from mx point

:15:07.:15:11.

of view, we believe the inspections were politically motivated to

:15:12.:15:15.

achieve a certain outcome whthin the context of the Trojan Horse letter.

:15:16.:15:20.

These inspections were jackdd up to look for extremism, radicalhsm,

:15:21.:15:22.

which were not found, but nonetheless, our schools were made

:15:23.:15:30.

inadequate in the process. @re you concerned they will be crithcism and

:15:31.:15:33.

complaints aimed at you next week in the reports that come out? That you

:15:34.:15:35.

have behaved badly and funds have been missed used? I have no idea. As

:15:36.:15:41.

far as funds are concerned, they have been used extremely well and in

:15:42.:15:48.

the right labour. `` right way. We are meticulous with that. That is

:15:49.:15:52.

something we will not have `ny criticism or, I am very confident.

:15:53.:15:57.

Can you understand the wider world's and Selma hardline Luslim is

:15:58.:16:02.

trying to push their agenda into schools? `` world's fears that.

:16:03.:16:15.

There may be fears about th`t. I have appointed three headte`chers,

:16:16.:16:25.

all of whom have been non`Mtslims. There has been talk of head teachers

:16:26.:16:30.

being sidelined and pushed out. I am not privy to those circumst`nces so

:16:31.:16:35.

I cannot comment on those. Hf someone tells me who they are, I can

:16:36.:16:41.

comment. You have been highly respected in Birmingham over the

:16:42.:16:45.

years in education. What effect has this had on you personally hn the

:16:46.:16:51.

last four months? It has bedn shocking, actually. Difficult for me

:16:52.:16:54.

and my family as well. Becatse of the reputational damage that has

:16:55.:16:59.

been done, I have been painted as a sinister character when in fact I

:17:00.:17:05.

work very openly in education. I inspect schools, I am a school

:17:06.:17:08.

governance consultant and trainer, I wait for the local authoritx. So

:17:09.:17:13.

what I have done is very tr`nsparent and open. Is this the end for you in

:17:14.:17:21.

education? No, I intend to continue my career in education and lake a

:17:22.:17:23.

difference to the lives of children. There is more to be done. Mx own

:17:24.:17:30.

personal contribution and those of my colleagues to transforming

:17:31.:17:35.

schools, which in fact a lot of people could not do, and thdre are

:17:36.:17:39.

scores high performing. It hs one of the highest performing schools in

:17:40.:17:43.

the city. We know what to do with schools. We like to make a

:17:44.:17:48.

difference to the lives of children. Tahir Alam.

But challenges remain for young people hoping to climb

As part of our Midlands Tomorrow series, Noreen Khan from thd

:18:29.:18:38.

BBC Asian Network has been talking to youngsters who've decided that

:18:39.:18:40.

the best business to get into is one that they own.

:18:41.:18:45.

It looks like a business bo`rdroom but these high`flying executives are

not only starting materials but launching their own companids as

:19:24.:19:27.

what we have done in the past, they become more on board with otr ideas.

This team of budding entrepreneurs uses a meeting centre to sh`re ideas

:21:49.:21:52.

Only two years ago, the event took place just a few miles away from

:21:53.:21:58.

More than 2,000 riders from 38 countries.

:21:59.:22:06.

And it really put Birminghal on the international map for BMX r`cing.

It will not please everyone. They did not please everyone on the

:24:38.:24:41.

panel. But I really do not caring that respect because it shows the

:24:42.:24:47.

great diversity of the music that exists in the area. If you want to

give the album strapline, it would be, you know, B`Side Brum, the tip

:24:54.:24:56.

shooting through the roof. Because of that, we have a couple of early

warnings. It is a heatwave from Friday through to Sunday. Bdcause of

those rising temperatures and unity levels, we're looking at

peak at 29 Celsius and will be the hottest day of the year. If that
