creating one of the biggest medical complexes in the country.

:00:00.:00:17.

In this environment is important to make every penny counts.

:00:18.:00:20.

We'll find out what this hospital in Birmingham could mean

:00:21.:00:23.

for the healthcare of families throughout the region.

:00:24.:00:25.

Destroyed by arsonists ` an historic home of the Cadbury

:00:26.:00:29.

A warning to pilgrims heading for Mecca ` after a rise in prosecutions

:00:30.:00:33.

This is a once`in`a`lifetime opportunity and they have been

:00:34.:00:44.

duped, those are the most heartbreaking cases.

:00:45.:00:44.

What does ?600 million worth of building look like?

:00:45.:00:46.

We go behind the scenes at New Street Station, ready for

:00:47.:00:49.

And as we say goodbye to a hot and sunny July,

:00:50.:00:54.

I'll have all the details in the forecast later.

:00:55.:01:07.

The Midlands could get a new children's hospital to rival

:01:08.:01:11.

It would run alongside the huge Queen Elizabeth Hospital

:01:12.:01:17.

in Birmingham, creating one of the biggest medial

:01:18.:01:19.

The cost would be more than ?400 million, but parents at the existing

:01:20.:01:25.

children's hospital, built more than 150 years ago, said today that it

:01:26.:01:29.

Here's our health correspondent Michele Paduano.

:01:30.:01:36.

Archie is six months old and has never left hospital.

:01:37.:01:38.

The Children's Hospital is a world centre of excellence

:01:39.:01:42.

for heart conditions like his and he needed an operation.

:01:43.:01:45.

But when he was born at the Women's Hospital,

:01:46.:01:47.

Alfie was moved and Emma didn't see him before

:01:48.:01:55.

I couldn't stop crying because I didn't get to see him. It was really

:01:56.:02:05.

scary, the thought that anything could happen.

:02:06.:02:06.

Moving sick, young children is far from ideal.

:02:07.:02:08.

Now the radical decision by both trusts is to merge by 2017 and

:02:09.:02:12.

create a brand new joint hospital by 2022 at a cost of ?430m.

:02:13.:02:21.

Both of the boards are committed to doing everything to make this

:02:22.:02:26.

happen. In order to make this hospital happen we need to come

:02:27.:02:29.

together as boards and create one single organisation. Clearly, that

:02:30.:02:33.

has to happen by the time the hospital opens in 2022.

:02:34.:02:42.

This building is not right for modern medicine, but the site is in

:02:43.:02:46.

the heart of the city, so by selling it they can raise some of the cash

:02:47.:02:48.

needed for the new hospital. Elsie May Goody was born at 24

:02:49.:02:49.

weeks on the edge of survival. Now 33 weeks old,

:02:50.:02:52.

she weighs just 3lbs 5oz. Twice she has had to be sent to

:02:53.:02:55.

the children's hospital It would be better because then LC

:02:56.:03:05.

would not have to go to and from first surgery, she would be in the

:03:06.:03:08.

same place, so it is easier for her.

:03:09.:03:08.

The new women's hospital will be built here.

:03:09.:03:10.

It's not known if this site belonging to the university could

:03:11.:03:13.

But a merger offers many cost savings and tough financial

:03:14.:03:17.

Especially for small babies and girls that are reaching adolescence,

:03:18.:03:27.

we are sharing patient anyway, so there is a lot we already have in

:03:28.:03:31.

common and we can build on that. The relations between the different

:03:32.:03:33.

clinical communities are already strong.

:03:34.:03:34.

But the biggest winners will be the babies and children, Michele

:03:35.:03:36.

This is early stages, will this new hospital become reality?

:03:37.:03:54.

Has been talk for 20 years. In 2011 there were moves, but then the

:03:55.:03:58.

chairman and chief executives resigned, partly over this issue. So

:03:59.:04:02.

it has been moving forward very slowly. Because of the financial

:04:03.:04:06.

situation, both hospitals now they cannot get themselves a new hospital

:04:07.:04:11.

without doing this. All the savings that can be made from joining

:04:12.:04:13.

together their backroom functions mean that as one director said to

:04:14.:04:18.

me, this is a no`brainer. It really should happen.

:04:19.:04:24.

What difference would it make to the healthier families across the West

:04:25.:04:26.

Midlands? It would be better for the children

:04:27.:04:29.

and appearance, and it would be better for the doctors who to travel

:04:30.:04:34.

between the various sites. At one of the big things that is going on here

:04:35.:04:37.

is that they are concentrating all this in one site, with the

:04:38.:04:42.

university, and are hoping to create a research centre and the centre of

:04:43.:04:45.

excellence to rival anywhere in the world.

:04:46.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:49.

The harvest is ahead of schedule, but farmers see that rules from the

:04:50.:05:03.

EU could reduce the amount of food they can produce in the future. Join

:05:04.:05:05.

me to find out why. An historic home of the Cadbury

:05:06.:05:06.

family in Birmingham has been A member

:05:07.:05:09.

of the chocolate`making family said today he was shocked and saddened,

:05:10.:05:12.

and it was a loss to the community. Up to 100 firefighters tackled

:05:13.:05:16.

the blaze Our reporter Ben Sidwell

:05:17.:05:18.

joins us now from the scene. Ben, what kind of state has

:05:19.:05:24.

the house been left in? As you can probably see, it is in

:05:25.:05:35.

appalling state. The building, which has stood for 200 years, is most

:05:36.:05:40.

completely destroyed, in just a few hours. That's how severe this fire

:05:41.:05:45.

was. People around here in the whole community are now asking, can this

:05:46.:05:49.

piece of the city's history we saved?

:05:50.:05:55.

Going up in flames, part of Birmingham's heritage.

:05:56.:05:57.

Northfield Manor was once the grand home of the Cadbury family.

:05:58.:06:00.

This morning is was little more than a smouldering shell.

:06:01.:06:06.

Real sadness, this is part of the area's Heritage. The important thing

:06:07.:06:12.

is to retain the building if at all possible.

:06:13.:06:17.

From above, the damage is even clearer.

:06:18.:06:18.

The fire destroying almost all of the house.

:06:19.:06:20.

It was the second time in 24 hours that West Midlands Fire Service had

:06:21.:06:24.

We know that children have been using the site and were chased off,

:06:25.:06:32.

and we know that Cruise in previous evenings have seen children here.

:06:33.:06:37.

Putting that jigsaw together, we are going along the lines of arson, but

:06:38.:06:39.

the investigation is ongoing. For members of the Cadbury family,

:06:40.:06:46.

who used to live at Northfield Manor, shock at the fire and concern

:06:47.:06:49.

for the local community. The sad thing of someone committing

:06:50.:06:57.

permeates into the lives of so many permeates into the lives of so many

:06:58.:07:01.

other people who have very strong and very happy memories, one hopes,

:07:02.:07:04.

and it is a direct attack on their memory. They are the people I feel

:07:05.:07:09.

sorry for, more than our own family.

:07:10.:07:12.

Since 1953 it's been owned by the University of Birmingham

:07:13.:07:14.

and used as halls of residence, but in 2007 it was boarded up.

:07:15.:07:20.

We did boarded`up. We have had long`term plans to develop it, so

:07:21.:07:26.

pathetically, and have plans to make it into flats.

:07:27.:07:31.

The question now is, simply, has Northfield Manor been too badly

:07:32.:07:34.

So Ben, what happens now ` what's the building's future?

:07:35.:07:40.

The future of the building is very unclear. As you can see, the roof

:07:41.:07:47.

has gone, many of the chimney stacks could be dangerous, many of the

:07:48.:07:50.

roofs and the floors have fallen through. They have to see how safe

:07:51.:07:55.

structurally this building is. That'll be the decision as to

:07:56.:07:58.

whether this is kept or not. There were plans going into Brogan City

:07:59.:08:03.

Council into a committee next month `` Birmingham City Council next

:08:04.:08:11.

month, to turn this building into flats. At the moment they do not

:08:12.:08:15.

know what is happening because of the state of the building. The

:08:16.:08:19.

building will first be made more safe, and then people can go inside

:08:20.:08:22.

and assess the damage. The Fire Brigade have said there are lots of

:08:23.:08:27.

loose timbers and loose slates, and some of the chimney stacks are

:08:28.:08:31.

incredibly dangerous. Anyone thinking of coming to have a look

:08:32.:08:34.

around, the advice is to keep away because this is a dangerous building

:08:35.:08:36.

with an uncertain future. The Home Secretary Teresa May was

:08:37.:08:40.

in Birmingham this morning to support the Conservative candidate

:08:41.:08:43.

in the upcoming election for the West Midlands Police

:08:44.:08:47.

and Crime Commissioner. Councillor Les Jones says

:08:48.:08:49.

if he wins, he'll free the police to fight crime

:08:50.:08:52.

and insist on tougher sentences. There is a perception among the

:08:53.:09:04.

public that police arrest criminals and give them a slap on the wrist

:09:05.:09:08.

and let them go. I want to make sure we're doing right by the people,

:09:09.:09:12.

where criminals should be prosecuted, we take every step

:09:13.:09:15.

possible to make sure they are prosecuted.

:09:16.:09:21.

The death of a woman in custody is to be investigated.

:09:22.:09:24.

30`year`old Sharmila Ullah was found dead in a cell at Bloxwich

:09:25.:09:26.

She'd been in hospital overnight, but had been assessed

:09:27.:09:30.

as being fit enough to be returned to custody the morning she died.

:09:31.:09:33.

The privately run Oakwood prison near Wolverhampton is one

:09:34.:09:35.

of two West Midlands jails whose performance has been described

:09:36.:09:37.

The annual rating is the worst that can be given

:09:38.:09:42.

Brinsford Young Offenders Institution

:09:43.:09:47.

in Wolverhampton has also been ranked in the lowest category.

:09:48.:09:51.

Figures given to the BBC reveal a rise in prosecutions

:09:52.:09:53.

for mis`selling packages to pilgrims heading to Mecca.

:09:54.:09:58.

Trading Standards Officers are warning travellers to be careful

:09:59.:10:00.

The warning comes as many Muslims start organising their journey to

:10:01.:10:06.

Saudi Arabia to take part in the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

:10:07.:10:09.

It was supposed the trip of a lifetime, and they'd saved

:10:10.:10:16.

for three years to afford it, but when Makhdoom Chishti and his wife

:10:17.:10:19.

Tahseen booked a pilgrimage to Mecca it was nothing like he'd imagined.

:10:20.:10:30.

It was chaos. We were not put in the same room, we were not looked after

:10:31.:10:42.

properly. I had to share my bed with a man, it was a double bed, and that

:10:43.:10:47.

was ridiculous. I had to sleep on the floor.

:10:48.:10:48.

Makhdoom had to fork out an extra ?300 to get a room with

:10:49.:10:51.

his wife and when he complained to the travel agent he was told because

:10:52.:10:55.

he was on a spiritual pilgrimage it was wrong of him to get upset.

:10:56.:10:58.

Millions of Muslims from across the world make the trip to Mecca every

:10:59.:11:08.

year, and many of them are now being targeted by rogue travel agents:

:11:09.:11:12.

There was just one prosecution back in 2012 which was the first

:11:13.:11:17.

By the end of the reporting period in 2014

:11:18.:11:26.

there'd been five convictions, with eight more awaiting court dates

:11:27.:11:29.

And at the moment trading standards are already dealing with

:11:30.:11:31.

a further 14 cases brought to them in the last few months.

:11:32.:11:36.

We think this is underreported. As soon as we proactively went out and

:11:37.:11:42.

looked for problems, we found problems.

:11:43.:11:43.

This midlands MP is calling for more to done to try

:11:44.:11:46.

We need to create greater awareness about the rules that apply to

:11:47.:11:56.

booking these packages. There are protections in law which are strong

:11:57.:12:00.

enough, it is just that people are not aware of them. Not everyone has

:12:01.:12:16.

a bad experience. I have just come back, and I had a

:12:17.:12:20.

good experience. If you go with people who are not

:12:21.:12:23.

registered, this is where the problem comes.

:12:24.:12:24.

Makhdoom and Tahseen are hope that by speaking out more people will.

:12:25.:12:27.

Makhdoom and Tahseen want to go back to Mecca one day if they can afford,

:12:28.:12:31.

but say they'll be much more careful booking the trip next time round.

:12:32.:12:36.

:13:05.:13:14.

New Street Station will be completed by September next year `

:13:15.:13:16.

according to Network Rail. The huge project includes

:13:17.:13:20.

a shopping centre and is costing Our transport correspondent,

:13:21.:13:23.

Peter Plisner has been checking No modern building, it seems,

:13:24.:13:26.

is complete without one, but the framework that makes up New

:13:27.:13:39.

Street Station atrium is certainly It's a bit like Meccano but

:13:40.:13:42.

on a much larger scale. Soon they will be demolishing this

:13:43.:13:54.

floor below me to bring daylight onto the Concourse station.

:13:55.:13:56.

And for contractors like Peter Creswell, the task

:13:57.:13:58.

of putting on the roof comes with the benefit of stunning views.

:13:59.:14:04.

This is great, this is why we do the job! We get to see things that

:14:05.:14:11.

people don't get to see, we get to see the beautiful buildings from a

:14:12.:14:15.

different angle. Birmingham, London, I've done most of them, really.

:14:16.:14:17.

When it's all finished in September next year the atrium will become

:14:18.:14:20.

a focal point of the new station and the Grand

:14:21.:14:22.

There will be a wow factor. The space you can see here is the size

:14:23.:14:34.

of Wembley football pitch. It will be exciting for Birmingham, and when

:14:35.:14:37.

we open up the retail, it will be an exciting venture for the people of

:14:38.:14:39.

Birmingham. And this time`lapse film

shows something others are This is the construction

of the new quarter of It'll promises be the company's

:14:43.:14:45.

largest store outside London and it In addition to John Lewis, other big

:14:46.:14:49.

names have signed up to Grand Central including The White

:14:50.:14:57.

Company, Joules, Cath Kidson, But does Birmingham need another big

:14:58.:14:59.

shopping centre? We have some fantastic shops, but

:15:00.:15:13.

this will be the final piece in the jigsaw. There are lots of people who

:15:14.:15:18.

live in the West Midlands who do not shop in Birmingham because they

:15:19.:15:20.

further afield. This gives us an opportunity to make the city the

:15:21.:15:23.

place everyone comes to the go shopping.

:15:24.:15:25.

And with just over a year to go there's still a lot of work still to

:15:26.:15:29.

do if the station and Grand Central are to arrive on time.

:15:30.:15:36.

In farms across the region, the harvest is now underway

:15:37.:15:38.

But some farmers say because so many chemical sprays have now been banned

:15:39.:15:44.

or restricted by the EU, it's making their job much harder, resulting

:15:45.:15:47.

Our rural affairs correspondent David Gregory`Kumar is on a farm

:15:48.:15:52.

David, how is the harvest going so far?

:15:53.:16:04.

Despite the odd shower it is going well. This was a field of wheat just

:16:05.:16:09.

an hour ago, but now it is safely gathered in. Across the Midlands,

:16:10.:16:13.

everything is pretty much ahead of schedule. But they are also saying

:16:14.:16:18.

that there are problems with EU rules banning many of the chemicals

:16:19.:16:19.

they rely on to grow these crops. From barley for beer in

:16:20.:16:24.

Overbury Gloucestershire through to wheat for supermarket loaves

:16:25.:16:26.

in Tamworth in Staffordshire. The hope was this year might be

:16:27.:16:30.

a bumper year. One of the biggest factors affecting

:16:31.:16:42.

yield is sunshine. If you look back to 2012 we can see all the grey

:16:43.:16:46.

areas of below average sunshine. As we move forward we can see that the

:16:47.:16:50.

month of June becomes more sunny and the hope was that would mean better

:16:51.:16:51.

yields. But it seems the extra sunshine

:16:52.:16:57.

hasn't been enough to increase Are mild and wet winter could have

:16:58.:17:10.

damaged the roots. The crop will be more well rounded than last year,

:17:11.:17:13.

but perhaps not as high as some people initially thought.

:17:14.:17:16.

And tackling disease is something farmers say is now harder, because

:17:17.:17:19.

the EU is banning or restricting the use of a number of pesticides,

:17:20.:17:22.

Will have fewer products, so resistance in the crop will build

:17:23.:17:31.

up, and that is not good. Harvest 2014 won't be the bumper

:17:32.:17:35.

crop farmers hoped for a month ago. But with fewer sprays available it

:17:36.:17:39.

might be the best we can do So why is the EU banning

:17:40.:17:42.

so many agricultural chemicals? Has been a shift in how they think

:17:43.:17:54.

about these chemicals. The knock`on effect is they are more risk averse

:17:55.:17:59.

and they are restricting the use of some of them are banning them a

:18:00.:18:03.

great. It is not just wheat, it is chemicals used on things like

:18:04.:18:07.

apples. It is having a big impact on our reformers, and the fear that

:18:08.:18:11.

some pests will become resistant to the fewer number of chemicals that

:18:12.:18:16.

are still in use. We wanted to doctor the EU and called them

:18:17.:18:20.

yesterday and today and you know them several times, but they have

:18:21.:18:23.

and unable to put someone forward to discuss the issue.

:18:24.:18:24.

After weeks of sun, there's a change in the weather ` how's that

:18:25.:18:27.

It is a bit of a gamble. You could do what this farmer did and just

:18:28.:18:38.

gather everything in. The yields might be lower, but it is money in

:18:39.:18:42.

the bank as you have those grains and cereals inside the barn. Some

:18:43.:18:48.

others are leaving things longer in the fields and taking a gamble on

:18:49.:18:51.

the weather and that could mean higher yields. That something

:18:52.:18:52.

farmers have to consider. Sport, the Midlands has won two

:18:53.:18:56.

bronze medals at the And cricketer Moeen Ali has

:18:57.:18:59.

also been making headlines. A remarkable bowling

:19:00.:19:02.

performance today. Worcestershire's Moeen Ali took six

:19:03.:19:08.

wickets as England beat India Ali, who is mainly in the side

:19:09.:19:11.

as a batsman, wrapped up victory He finished with figures of 6

:19:12.:19:18.

for 47 as England won The five match series is now level

:19:19.:19:23.

at 1`all with two matches to play. The Midlands have won two more

bronze medals at the Para lawn Bowls Birmingham's Bob Love showed great

his last bowl of the match. The England netball team will take

:20:00.:20:01.

in the semi`final this weekend. And it will be a very special

:20:02.:20:03.

occasion for one Birmingham family with a strong sporting tradition, as

:20:04.:20:07.

Nick Clitheroe has been finding out. He's just like every other proud

:20:08.:20:10.

father ` delighted to watch his daughter playing her heart out

:20:11.:20:19.

in search of Commonwealth gold. Stacey Francis is a key part

:20:20.:20:22.

of the English netball team's defence, but dad Kevin was more used

:20:23.:20:24.

to scoring than stopping. For three years in the 1990s he was

:20:25.:20:27.

a crowd favourite at Birmingham City Now he's learning what it's

:20:28.:20:30.

like to be on the sidelines rather It was awesome. It one of those

:20:31.:20:44.

things that until it happens you don't realise how much it means to

:20:45.:20:48.

you. As a sportsman myself, being there is second to none. Seen her
