Hello and welcome to Midlands Today. The headlines tonight:

:00:00.:00:00.

Another suspected arson attack on a Shropshire farm. 500 tons of straw

:00:00.:00:08.

I spoke to the farmer yesterday evening and he is devastated. A lot

:00:09.:00:23.

of hard work has gone in and it has been undone in a matter of minutes.

:00:24.:00:27.

We will be asking why there is a surge in rural crime.

:00:28.:00:31.

Happy to go: After a long campaign against it, traders in Birmingham's

:00:32.:00:33.

Wholesale Market finally back a move to a new site.

:00:34.:00:36.

It was all down to the council. They have realised what a vibrant market

:00:37.:00:43.

this is what an important market it is to the economics of the whole of

:00:44.:00:45.

the Midlands. The FA finally agrees to research

:00:46.:00:47.

into injuries caused by heading a football after pressure from the

:00:48.:00:49.

family of Albion legend Jeff Astle. Catching the vibrant sights

:00:50.:00:52.

and sounds of the inner city in And we're not quite over

:00:53.:00:55.

the effects of ex`hurricane Bertha Find out what there is to

:00:56.:00:59.

look forward to later. Firefighters

:01:00.:01:13.

in Shropshire fears arsonists are targeting farms, with at least five

:01:14.:01:18.

incidents in the last five weeks. The number of suspected attacks

:01:19.:01:22.

comes as new figures suggest rural crime levels across the

:01:23.:01:25.

West Midlands have risen by nine per Cath Mackie is at the scene of the

:01:26.:01:29.

latest fire near Wellington tonight. Yes, this is a worrying time of year

:01:30.:01:48.

anyway for farmers because typically this is the time of year when store

:01:49.:01:54.

stacks are targeted and you can see the devastation caused in this race

:01:55.:01:58.

and `` latest incident. There were 500 tonnes of straw here yesterday

:01:59.:02:02.

morning and by last night the whole thing had gone up in smoke. ?30,000

:02:03.:02:09.

worth of straw reduced to ashes, the fire on top of this hill in

:02:10.:02:14.

Shropshire was so severe it could be seen for miles. The flames engulfed

:02:15.:02:17.

the sky and fire crews were mobilised, their main objective was

:02:18.:02:22.

to stop the fire spreading. Upon arrival it was clear that all 500

:02:23.:02:27.

tonnes of it was fully involved in the crier `` fire so the aim was to

:02:28.:02:32.

protect the surrounding area from any further damage. There have been

:02:33.:02:35.

similar attacks at other farms in the region this summer. Just 15

:02:36.:02:45.

miles from here a farmer has fallen victim to these are a number of

:02:46.:02:48.

occasions. We have had two thefts of diesel from the farm and also a set

:02:49.:02:57.

of pallet Times has gone missing. I have been talking to my neighbours

:02:58.:03:01.

in the fast few days and it seems that fuel is one of the major

:03:02.:03:07.

problems. These reports of thefts and arson attacks on farms are not

:03:08.:03:14.

unique. Rural crime cost an estimated ?44.5 million every year

:03:15.:03:17.

according to NFU Mutual and criminals are becoming more

:03:18.:03:22.

organised and stealing to order. We have been monitoring rural crime and

:03:23.:03:25.

the change we have seen this that crime has gone from opportunist

:03:26.:03:31.

threat of `` set of small items to highly organised criminal activity

:03:32.:03:36.

involving high end equipment, very expensive tractors, livestock, tools

:03:37.:03:39.

and fuel. Investigators say they have found equipment stolen from the

:03:40.:03:45.

UK turning up in Eastern Europe, Africa and even Australia. It is not

:03:46.:03:51.

just about money. The effects can be devastating. This farmer did not

:03:52.:03:55.

want to speak to the press but he spoke to the Fire Service. He has

:03:56.:04:00.

said this is worth over ?30,000 so it feels like a lot of hard work has

:04:01.:04:06.

been undone in a matter of seconds. Renewed security advice is now being

:04:07.:04:12.

issued to farmers and the police continue to investigate this latest

:04:13.:04:15.

suspected arson attack. We heard there about criminals

:04:16.:04:19.

getting more organised but farmers have also been getting more

:04:20.:04:23.

organised and beefing up their security. There have been a lot of

:04:24.:04:26.

security campaigns in the countryside...

:04:27.:04:33.

Oh, we seem to have lost her there. She was reporting from Shropshire on

:04:34.:04:37.

those series of arson attacks in the country.

:04:38.:04:43.

Thanks for joining us this evening. Coming up later in the programme:

:04:44.:04:46.

Is this a snooker genius in the making?

:04:47.:04:49.

Traders at Birmingham's Wholesale Market say they're feeling confident

:04:50.:04:52.

as they prepare for the move to their new site in the

:04:53.:04:54.

They'd originally opposed the move as they feared for their future.

:04:55.:04:59.

It comes as markets across the region begin to recover

:05:00.:05:02.

In the first of five special reports this week,

:05:03.:05:07.

Ben Godfrey has spent a day at the country's biggest wholesale market.

:05:08.:05:15.

When the city sleeps, the wholesalers

:05:16.:05:16.

It's 4.30am and the deliveries are rolling in.

:05:17.:05:21.

Tomatoes from Spain, cassavas from Costa Rica.

:05:22.:05:29.

Mark Tate's speciality is fruit and veg.

:05:30.:05:34.

It'll end up on the plates of schoolchildren,

:05:35.:05:37.

We are the biggest independent in the wholesale market. We turned over

:05:38.:05:49.

in excess of 14 million. It was an effort to bring

:05:50.:05:51.

wholesalers in fish, fruit They're international traders

:05:52.:05:55.

and the balance sheet reads like The market turns over between 250 to

:05:56.:06:11.

?270 million a year. We employ 2000 people on site this morning.

:06:12.:06:13.

Here the idea that only quality food is grown locally doesn't wash.

:06:14.:06:16.

Take these lobsters from Canada which have lived to tell the tale.

:06:17.:06:23.

These bananas come all of the way from Panama, direct. This garlic

:06:24.:06:31.

comes all of the way from China. These runner beans from

:06:32.:06:32.

Worcestershire. For four years traders have faced

:06:33.:06:33.

an uncertain future. Relations with

:06:34.:06:35.

the City Council were as sour as citrus fruits after this vast

:06:36.:06:37.

site was deemed unfit for purpose. A new wholesale market will open

:06:38.:06:40.

in 2016 in Witton. It will have a third of the units,

:06:41.:06:45.

but tensions have eased because We are sitting on 22 acres which is

:06:46.:06:57.

worth about ?50 million to the council. The wholesale market needs

:06:58.:07:01.

a new image. It has had bad publicity. There will always be a

:07:02.:07:05.

place for a market. The market needs to evolve with the times and we need

:07:06.:07:09.

to bring it up to be fit for purpose.

:07:10.:07:10.

Everyone seems to be flogging one particular fruit.

:07:11.:07:14.

Mohammed Armani has come extra early to buy in bulk.

:07:15.:07:20.

In this weather, hot weather, they love watermelon. They buy just

:07:21.:07:35.

watermelon and nothing else. Since June one .1 million watermelons have

:07:36.:07:36.

been sold here! Under these roofs traders

:07:37.:07:39.

are bucking the trend. Where footfall has recently dropped

:07:40.:07:41.

in many retail markets, the wholesale market is keeping a lower

:07:42.:07:44.

profile, quietly making millions. Campaigners gathered in Birmingham

:07:45.:07:48.

city centre today to protest about Israeli military action in Gaza.

:07:49.:07:51.

Around 50 demonstrators from the organisation Solidarity For

:07:52.:07:54.

Palestine gathered outside Birmingham City Council this

:07:55.:07:58.

lunchtime. Perry Barr MP Khalid Mahmood says the Prime Minister,

:07:59.:08:01.

David Cameron, needs to do much more The British government have not done

:08:02.:08:16.

enough, they cannot even come to fully criticise what is happening at

:08:17.:08:20.

the moment, bombing of innocent men and women and children in

:08:21.:08:24.

particular. Hospitals, schools, any place there are children, all of

:08:25.:08:29.

that is taking place and we cannot get any condemnation from this

:08:30.:08:31.

government and I think it is very weak.

:08:32.:08:32.

Sales at the luxury car maker Jaguar Land Rover are up again.

:08:33.:08:35.

The company sold more than 115,000 vehicles in the last three months,

:08:36.:08:38.

up by 22% on the same period last year.

:08:39.:08:40.

The latest rise in sales comes as a result of strong global demand

:08:41.:08:47.

for new and refreshed models, including the all new Range Rover

:08:48.:08:50.

The family of goal`scoring hero Jeff Astle have met FA Chairman Greg

:08:51.:09:01.

Dyke as part of their long`running campaign to highlight the risks

:09:02.:09:06.

of heading footballs and players suffering concussion.

:09:07.:09:08.

It was initially believed the West Bromwich Albion legend had died

:09:09.:09:12.

from Alzheimer's disease in 2002, but a coroner ruled

:09:13.:09:15.

his brain had been damaged by heading heavy leather balls.

:09:16.:09:20.

Sarah Falkland is with Jeff's widow Laraine and daughter Dawn now.

:09:21.:09:23.

It has taken a long time to get here.

:09:24.:09:36.

It has. This family have waited patiently in good faith for well

:09:37.:09:40.

over a decade for the FA to carry out this research into the kind of

:09:41.:09:46.

brain injuries that killed Jeff Astle in 2002. Nothing of substance

:09:47.:09:50.

was being done. Yesterday we had this to carry out this research into

:09:51.:09:53.

the kind of brain injuries that killed Jeff Astle in 2002. Nothing

:09:54.:09:55.

of substance was being done. Yesterday we had this FA had not

:09:56.:10:11.

done enough and he also said that they owed our family a huge thank

:10:12.:10:13.

you for bringing this important issue to the attention of people.

:10:14.:10:16.

Quite an emotional moment for you? A very emotional moment, especially

:10:17.:10:18.

when the whole room burst into applause. Greg Dyke says he will be

:10:19.:10:22.

looking at this from a global perspective, what does he mean by

:10:23.:10:27.

that? I know that they hope to get FIFA on board, he said they were

:10:28.:10:31.

very interested and then we want them to look at Alzheimer's and

:10:32.:10:36.

dementia in former players. Informally you have tried to

:10:37.:10:40.

research this, what conclusions have you discovered? I have just been

:10:41.:10:45.

doing basic searches on Google and Wikipedia and the number of former

:10:46.:10:47.

footballers who have either died about time as all who are living

:10:48.:11:06.

with the consequences of it, the list is getting longer and longer.

:11:07.:11:09.

Just the other day for 20 minutes I added a number 40 mean `` another 40

:11:10.:11:12.

names to the list that is getting longer. This could be the tip of the

:11:13.:11:15.

iceberg. Yes, I am sure that Jeff is not the first footballer to die of

:11:16.:11:18.

this and I am sure he will not be the worst `` last. We have had no

:11:19.:11:21.

word on when this research may start but there is already a lot of

:11:22.:11:24.

interest and Port Vale have already invited this family to go there and

:11:25.:11:26.

talk about concussion in sport. Figures obtained

:11:27.:11:29.

by the BBC show the number of inquests involving suicides has

:11:30.:11:31.

more than doubled in the last decade The figures were provided

:11:32.:11:34.

by the coroner in North Staffordshire, where 56 people

:11:35.:11:37.

took their own lives last year, The vast majority

:11:38.:11:40.

of cases involve men. Our Staffordshire reporter

:11:41.:11:44.

Liz Copper's been investigating. It was in the letter that he left me

:11:45.:11:58.

that he said he had suffered from depression from a very young age,

:11:59.:12:03.

since he was 13 or so. I say to people that I probably did not stop

:12:04.:12:05.

crying for many months. Chris Habgood was 26

:12:06.:12:07.

when he took his own life. His father,

:12:08.:12:10.

a former prison governor, is now behind a charity helping

:12:11.:12:11.

families affected by suicide. We need to do a lot more around

:12:12.:12:19.

helping young people say how they feel. There is only so ashram there

:12:20.:12:24.

is a myth around that if you talk about suicide you can actually cause

:12:25.:12:29.

it and that is not true. All you do is you encourage young people to

:12:30.:12:33.

disclose how they are feeling and admit they are struggling and to

:12:34.:12:34.

seek help. But for many young people, like

:12:35.:12:35.

Chris Habgood, seeking help is hard. This is the coroner 's Court and

:12:36.:12:44.

cameras are not normally allowed inside and we have been given

:12:45.:12:48.

special permission to film. The evidence heard here is often

:12:49.:12:51.

distressing and sometimes harrowing and this is a place that no family

:12:52.:12:53.

wants to find themselves in. But the North Staffordshire coroner

:12:54.:12:56.

has seen an increasing number of suicide cases

:12:57.:12:58.

in his court over the last decade. The reasons

:12:59.:13:01.

for the rise aren't clear. I think it is men who have found

:13:02.:13:11.

themselves in a position where their relationship has broken down and

:13:12.:13:14.

maybe they have lost their job and become redundant. They have ended up

:13:15.:13:19.

in poor accommodation, maybe they are beginning to develop health

:13:20.:13:22.

issues as well and they wonder if life is worth carrying on.

:13:23.:13:24.

This film was made as part of a campaign supported by the Samaritans

:13:25.:13:27.

to help reduce deaths on the railways.

:13:28.:13:29.

Nationally every six seconds somebody contacts the charity.

:13:30.:13:33.

It wants to do more to reach young men at risk of suicide.

:13:34.:13:44.

As Samaritans I think what we are going to see is more of us going out

:13:45.:13:49.

into the community to reach these men and less perhaps sitting here in

:13:50.:13:54.

the office waiting for them to call us because maybe men just are not

:13:55.:13:55.

very good at that. Chris Habgood didn't find

:13:56.:13:56.

the help which might have prevented But his family are amongst those

:13:57.:13:59.

campaigning in his memory for more to be done to support

:14:00.:14:02.

those contemplating suicide. And if you are affected by anything

:14:03.:14:08.

you've just seen in that report, we've put a list of organisations

:14:09.:14:11.

that may be able to help you on Concerns over rural crime with

:14:12.:14:15.

:14:44.:14:46.

a new star of the green baize. It is fair to say this lad has got

:14:47.:15:03.

the best future in front of him. And he's certainly got

:15:04.:15:14.

an impressive CV. Hamim Hussain has just become

:15:15.:15:16.

the National under`14 Champion. And he's aiming to turn professional

:15:17.:15:18.

as soon as he leaves school. In small Heath the washing was out

:15:19.:15:34.

for dry and these brothers were out to play. They have a championship

:15:35.:15:41.

standard table costing ?5,000. Hamim Hussain is the new English under 14

:15:42.:15:45.

champion and his brother is 12 and they are both very talented players.

:15:46.:15:50.

I will never forget the last time I met alike `` a young player like

:15:51.:15:55.

this, it was 1996 and Shaun Murphy was the player and he went on to

:15:56.:16:01.

become World Snooker champion in 2005. No pressure then! Well done.

:16:02.:16:08.

When he was about the age of two and a half he would find any stick and

:16:09.:16:11.

ball and start playing snooker and he really enjoys playing it. I love

:16:12.:16:15.

watching my boys playing, I love snooker. All of the same brothers

:16:16.:16:21.

inherited their passion for snooker from their dad who arrived from

:16:22.:16:26.

Bangladesh in 1974 and learn to play the game in Halesowen and worked

:16:27.:16:29.

flat out in the restaurant business to give all of his sons, including

:16:30.:16:34.

the four`year`old, every opportunity to achieve their full potential. For

:16:35.:16:42.

him the next thing is to become a professional snooker player as soon

:16:43.:16:45.

as possible and then take it from there and join the big boys! What is

:16:46.:16:50.

the secret to him enjoying success? Practice, practice, practice. Just

:16:51.:16:55.

like his favourite snooker players have always done. I like Sean Murphy

:16:56.:17:00.

and the way he plays, attacking and aggressive. I find that tactic quite

:17:01.:17:08.

suitable for my game. One day possibly world champion? Yes,

:17:09.:17:13.

hopefully! The boys are doing well at school but snooker is their

:17:14.:17:16.

passion, no wonder the family is very proud of its national champion

:17:17.:17:19.

and his future prospects. Norwich City have confirmed they are

:17:20.:17:22.

midfielder David Davis to The 23`year`old who's spent

his whole career at Wolves has had a frustrating 12 months at Molineux

trying to break into the team. Obviously it was not to be and I do

:17:37.:17:49.

not resent the club or resent anyone. It was just a touring top

:17:50.:17:53.

personnel. The team was winning and it is hard when a team is winning

:17:54.:17:56.

and we are flying and winning every week so for me now it is all about a

:17:57.:18:00.

fresh start and hopefully I will hit the running `` the ground running

here. The new owner

:18:07.:18:10.

now playing in the Southern League. But Tommy Agombar says he does have

:18:11.:18:14.

new backers waiting to invest. The big investment comes from

:18:15.:18:24.

friends of mine that I know in the city and they are really investing

:18:25.:18:31.

in me. I am very confident, very, bury confident. How can I turn the

:18:32.:18:34.

Hereford people around? I would have thought I had already done that by

:18:35.:18:39.

keeping the club here. I am not really bothered about whether they

:18:40.:18:40.

like me or not. And our full interview with Tommy

:18:41.:18:42.

Agombar is on our Facebook page. The European athletic starts

:18:43.:18:50.

tomorrow as well. Thank you.

Catching a taxi in one part of Birmingham has now become

:18:56.:18:57.

Visitors are being given a tour of Stratford Road as part of

:18:58.:19:01.

Our Arts Reporter Satnam Rana has been finding out how the area has

:19:02.:19:05.

Welcome to the tour, I will take you on a short tour of Stratford Road.

:19:06.:19:20.

It is three miles to be exact. This area has changed so much as I was a

:19:21.:19:23.

child, we have had the Irish year and then the Asian people came and

:19:24.:19:28.

now there are a lot of Somalis on this part of Stratford Road.

:19:29.:19:30.

Stick an actor in a taxi and you get theatre on the go.

:19:31.:19:33.

This is Taxi Tour, a free experience which immerses you

:19:34.:19:36.

in the sights, sounds and stories of Birmingam's Stratford Road.

:19:37.:19:39.

A key land mark is Saint Agatha 's Church which is coming up on your

:19:40.:19:48.

right hand side. It was established in 1899 as a Catholic church and it

:19:49.:19:52.

is a testament to the architecture that it is still standing.

:19:53.:19:54.

Step outside and you get a better idea of what this changing

:19:55.:19:56.

Taxi Tour is based on work carried out

:19:57.:20:01.

You see a lot of people will come around and see new things they never

:20:02.:20:06.

saw before, a new type of coffee that they did not ever used a drink.

:20:07.:20:12.

It was all English shops and every thing anything about it was just

:20:13.:20:16.

might but as the years have gone they have moved out and these have

:20:17.:20:22.

come in. The community has developed in many ways. You have got different

:20:23.:20:27.

communities joined in and it is good.

:20:28.:20:29.

Taxi Tour is based on work carried out

:20:30.:20:31.

by south asian arts group SAMPAD and is a Heritage Lottery Fund project.

:20:32.:20:36.

In 100 years time people are going to look back and say, who were my

:20:37.:20:42.

ancestors? How did they arrive, where did they work? What did they

:20:43.:20:47.

do in their lives? And how did they reinvent themselves because that is

:20:48.:20:49.

what you are really looking at here. And the reivention

:20:50.:20:51.

During the First World War scores of factories around the West Midlands

:21:22.:21:24.

were flat out producing military hardware for the war effort.

:21:25.:21:28.

Barrie's dad Ernie, a Cadbury worker I tend to think Cadbury started

:22:59.:23:04.

right at the beginning, I think they set the standard

for looking after their workers. The ones that had gone away,
