very much. That's all from the BBC News at Six. Goodbye from

:00:00.:00:10.

Hello and welcome to Midlands Today. The headlines tonight:

:00:11.:00:13.

Feeling the suffering of their compatriots ` Yazidis talk of their

:00:14.:00:15.

horror at events back home in Northern Iraq

:00:16.:00:17.

We'll be reporting live from Coventry, where members of the

:00:18.:00:20.

Yazidi community are holding a crisis meeting. Also tonight:

:00:21.:00:22.

A desperate search for donors as time starts to run out for two young

:00:23.:00:25.

people with rare forms of cancer. Struggling to cope ` the Potteries

:00:26.:00:28.

has some of the highest levels of debt in the country.

:00:29.:00:36.

It seems like your debt is never paid off.

:00:37.:00:39.

Prove your food has been grown locally ` strict rules bringing

:00:40.:00:42.

record business for a farmers market.

:00:43.:00:43.

And nothing more super than a supermoon on a clear night. But that

:00:44.:00:46.

was Sunday's highlight. Tomorrow, it's the Perseid meteor showers at

:00:47.:00:49.

their peak, but will you be able to see them? Find out later.

:00:50.:01:22.

Members of the Yazidi community say they've been traumatised by the

:01:23.:01:25.

Up to 400 followers of the persecuted sect have made

:01:26.:01:28.

They've watched with mounting horror as Yazidis flee extremists

:01:29.:01:32.

Our reporter Sarah Falkland is with some families tonight.

:01:33.:01:35.

I don't think they are coping well. It is very frustrating for them.

:01:36.:01:41.

Some men here tonight have been glued to the television screens as

:01:42.:01:45.

their wives are at home watching the horror is an fold in Iraq and

:01:46.:01:50.

powerless to do anything. Many of them are here in Coventry, having

:01:51.:01:55.

come over after the second Gulf War and have extended family there.

:01:56.:02:00.

Today our reporter spent time with the community.

:02:01.:02:05.

Jamil Shardeen Darwish arrived in Coventry 11 years ago, leaving loved

:02:06.:02:07.

TRANSLATION: Family is my blood, we have more than 100 family there.

:02:08.:02:21.

Many of them have run away to Syria, to the mountains, some of them we do

:02:22.:02:22.

not know where they are. The father of seven is seen

:02:23.:02:33.

as a head of the Yazidi community in Coventry, which is planning to

:02:34.:02:36.

travel to Downing Street to hold a peaceful demonstration calling

:02:37.:02:39.

for more British aid to help the TRANSLATION: We have a lot of people

:02:40.:02:46.

in the mountains but still are people there are very weak, they

:02:47.:02:49.

have gone ten days without food can, `` without food, but we are

:02:50.:02:56.

trying to say, the send help, anything is a help. `` please send

:02:57.:02:59.

help. Hundreds of Yazidis have

:03:00.:03:01.

been killed or kidnapped. Tens of thousands have fled their

:03:02.:03:03.

homes and are trapped on a mountain near Sinjar in northern Iraq,

:03:04.:03:06.

driven there by Islamic militants The Yazidi religion is

:03:07.:03:08.

a closed sect. It's not possible for someone

:03:09.:03:12.

to convert to the religion. For centuries, they have suffered

:03:13.:03:14.

persecution, mislabelled as devil worshippers because the name of

:03:15.:03:18.

the spirit they worship is similar In reality, it has elements of both

:03:19.:03:21.

Christianity and Islam at its roots. It's estimated that as many

:03:22.:03:35.

as 20,000 people may still be on the southern side of the mountain,

:03:36.:03:38.

all in desperate need of aid. I am here now with two men who have

:03:39.:03:50.

family in the attacks that area. We have all seen these awful pictures

:03:51.:03:54.

on TV. It must be frustrating for you. It was terrifying, it made me

:03:55.:04:04.

feel worse, you can see the picture of thousands of people without food

:04:05.:04:10.

or anything, the art kids, young, old, old the same. How many family

:04:11.:04:21.

do you have? We have blood family still there, we need help to get

:04:22.:04:29.

them food, clothes, stop. There has also been criticism of how the

:04:30.:04:32.

British government is handling this crisis. What do you think? I want to

:04:33.:04:40.

say thanks to the British people to help, but the government are too

:04:41.:04:43.

slow because the last element went into Iraq, and a lot of people died,

:04:44.:04:49.

women are in danger, kids are in danger, and we ask the government to

:04:50.:04:57.

go, save our family now. So you think parliament should be recall.

:04:58.:05:02.

How quick they can come, that would be great. Please, British people,

:05:03.:05:08.

help us. You have been collecting aid here. We have collect it clothes

:05:09.:05:15.

for our people because they have left their family and they are in

:05:16.:05:19.

the mountain without anything, so here we try to help our people

:05:20.:05:22.

there, we take clothes and give them to people. A sense of the urgency

:05:23.:05:29.

and frustration here amongst the Daisy Dee and Kurdish people here in

:05:30.:05:36.

Coventry. `` that Yazidi people. Lindsay mentioned our marked in

:05:37.:05:42.

Coventry. `` eight March in Coventry.

:05:43.:05:45.

Why plans to make this colliery into an industrial park are

:05:46.:05:50.

A desperate struggle is on to find suitable stem cell or bone marrow

:05:51.:06:00.

19`month`old Khalid Adam and 21`year`old Riya Dandekar have

:06:01.:06:03.

But a shortage of suitable donors from ethnic minorities means

:06:04.:06:07.

Our reporter Kevin Reide has been finding out more.

:06:08.:06:15.

Khalid Adam from Coventry was just four months old when he was rushed

:06:16.:06:18.

After months of tests, he was diagnosed with acute myeloid

:06:19.:06:22.

leukaemia and needed treatment to save his life.

:06:23.:06:28.

You have to be positive, otherwise it starts at the thing your mind,

:06:29.:06:36.

the way you think. You look at him and think he looks fine.

:06:37.:06:38.

After chemotherapy, things seemed to be going well,

:06:39.:06:40.

He now has just four weeks to find a donor to give him

:06:41.:06:45.

You just think, why? You cannot take it in.

:06:46.:06:53.

Meanwhile, in Solihull, Riya Dandekar is

:06:54.:06:55.

Just five months ago a swelling near her shoulder turned out to be

:06:56.:06:59.

anaplastic lymphoma, another blood cancer.

:07:00.:07:03.

The dog brought the chair forward and in slow motion said it is

:07:04.:07:14.

lymphoma, and my brain panicked. I didn't know what to think, I

:07:15.:07:21.

thought, wait, is this cancer? He said yes, the doctor said yes, and I

:07:22.:07:26.

didn't know what to do. I looked at my mum and we both cried.

:07:27.:07:30.

The fact is that if Khalid and Riya were white northern European,

:07:31.:07:32.

they would have a 90% chance of finding a donor, but

:07:33.:07:35.

because they're of Asian heritage, they're chances are just 40%.

:07:36.:07:38.

Riya has enlisted the help of her friends at

:07:39.:07:40.

Dorridge Music School to demonstrate just how simple taking a swab test

:07:41.:07:43.

And she's now planning swab sessions in predominantly Asian communities.

:07:44.:07:52.

We have been talking to parents and students when they come in, so

:07:53.:07:58.

hopefully we will spread the word a lot. I was ignorant on the subject

:07:59.:08:04.

but I find out it is easy, three quick and straightforward steps.

:08:05.:08:07.

Exploding the myths is half the problem.

:08:08.:08:09.

Many are unsure what stem cell or bone marrow donation entails,

:08:10.:08:11.

but both are done without the need for surgery.

:08:12.:08:15.

I am 95% of cases just collecting themselves from the blood, which is

:08:16.:08:23.

having injections for four days and on the fifth day, needles will be

:08:24.:08:29.

put into arms and the blood flows through the machine to collect this

:08:30.:08:35.

themselves. Only a minority of blood conditions will we need to collect

:08:36.:08:39.

the bone marrow, and the bone marrow is also done under general

:08:40.:08:50.

anaesthetic. I going to die because I'm not responding to Chemotherapy?

:08:51.:08:56.

It is a difficult question and to be honest with you I try to avoid it

:08:57.:08:58.

because it is so difficult. Riya is planning to set up her own

:08:59.:09:02.

charity to encourage potential donors, particularly from the Asian

:09:03.:09:05.

community, and if she doesn't survive, she

:09:06.:09:07.

hopes any legacy will help others, A teachers' organisation has

:09:08.:09:10.

:09:28.:09:30.

a suicide verdict on a grandmother who was worried

:09:31.:09:38.

about losing her home because Stephanie Bottrill,

:09:39.:09:41.

known to her family as Doreen, She left a note saying

:09:42.:09:45.

the government was to blame, before walking in front

:09:46.:09:50.

of a lorry on the M6. On the morning of May 4th last year,

:09:51.:09:52.

Doreen Bottrill walked across the M6 motorway and

:09:53.:09:58.

into the path of a lorry. In suicide notes left for her

:09:59.:10:02.

family, she blamed changes to the housing benefit system and said she

:10:03.:10:08.

couldn't cope with the stress of Political opponents have called it

a bedroom tax and it's been one of the coalition government's most

:10:12.:10:18.

controversial policies, leading to From April last year,

councils and housing associations could reduce the amount

Mrs Bottrill's brother said his sister's death was a tragedy,

but he understood why the government For social housing to work, it needs

successive governments and your needs are met, then you must give

:11:13.:11:19.

somebody else a turn. It is terrible that people in this country are

:11:20.:11:22.

cramped into one or two bedroom flats for children while other

children `` other people set in two bedroom houses.

More people are struggling to pay their debts in Stoke`on`Trent than

:12:25.:12:27.

A study by two charities found more than a third of children

:12:28.:12:31.

in the city were living in families with debt problems.

:12:32.:12:34.

The report's authors say many feel taking on credit is

:12:35.:12:36.

Here's our Staffordshire reporter, Liz Copper.

:12:37.:12:40.

Enjoying the school holidays with her children,

:12:41.:12:42.

She's happy to be debt`free now, but when she was 16 she took out a

:12:43.:12:49.

loan and for a while her financial problems spiralled out of control.

:12:50.:12:59.

Sleepless nights, you worry about people knocking on your door and you

:13:00.:13:05.

worry about money especially when you have children, all the

:13:06.:13:10.

responsibilities and you feel like you have failed because you have no

:13:11.:13:12.

money. It is just a domino effect. And in Hanley city centre,

:13:13.:13:18.

plenty of other families were also You think you have the money and it

:13:19.:13:28.

can only go so far. I don't really believe in loans. I think they just

:13:29.:13:33.

get you in more debt, so I wouldn't risk it.

:13:34.:13:35.

But despite some families being reluctant to take out loans,

:13:36.:13:37.

a study out today suggests this city is one of the worst affected areas

:13:38.:13:40.

The report found half of children in families with problems that said it

:13:41.:13:50.

caused arguments and nine out of ten families said they cut back on

:13:51.:13:53.

essentials like food, clothing and heating.

:13:54.:13:55.

And at this food bank at a church in Bentilee, every week volunteers

:13:56.:13:58.

Sometimes as well as handing out bags of food,

:13:59.:14:03.

We have people in that they cannot buy anything because they cannot pay

:14:04.:14:17.

their way. The first thing they need to do is pay the debt and worry

:14:18.:14:20.

about food later on, and that is what we have found.

:14:21.:14:23.

Bentilee is typical of many estates in the city,

:14:24.:14:25.

Children will often pick up on the anxiety there parents feel around

:14:26.:14:33.

financial problems and it is well known that they could be extreme and

:14:34.:14:43.

relationships. `` they put a strain on race and ships. `` on

:14:44.:14:46.

relationships. Zoe Walton's finances are now

:14:47.:14:49.

trouble free, but for many families, escaping the cycle

:14:50.:14:52.

of debt remains difficult. A public meeting's being held

:14:53.:14:53.

tonight over controversial plans to turn the site

:14:54.:14:56.

of the region's last deep coal mine Daw Mill Colliery in Warwickshire

:14:57.:15:00.

shut last year. The pit had been struggling to break

:15:01.:15:01.

even, but the final straw was a devastating fire underground,

:15:02.:15:04.

which took months to put out. At one time it was one of Europe's

:15:05.:15:06.

biggest collieries. And when it shut last year,

:15:07.:15:10.

Daw Mill was the last remaining deep coal mine in our region,

:15:11.:15:13.

employing nearly 700 people. Now he's a councillor

:15:14.:15:15.

and he's worried about the future I feel we've got to do something

:15:16.:15:22.

on the site. It's got to be a business park but

:15:23.:15:26.

it's got to be the right sort of business, so we've got to look at

:15:27.:15:30.

the infrastructure carefully, about But the hope is 1400 jobs could be

:15:31.:15:33.

created in a new industrial park ` twice

:15:34.:15:40.

the number who worked underground. That could mean dozens of lorries

:15:41.:15:47.

like this on winding country lanes, through villages which are already

:15:48.:15:50.

too familiar with the effects I think most people welcome jobs but

:15:51.:15:52.

the concern here is that we have a site which is extremely inaccessible

:15:53.:15:58.

and most people fear the worst of both worlds, where we will get very

:15:59.:16:03.

few jobs created and massive amounts of traffic

:16:04.:16:07.

from heavy goods vehicles that will And it's not just

:16:08.:16:10.

the neighbours who are worried. Five miles away in Coleshill, the

:16:11.:16:14.

prospect of even more traffic is People, children cross the road,

:16:15.:16:17.

it's a route for the kids to get to school,

:16:18.:16:21.

pushchairs, elderly people crossing We have no pedestrian crossing,

:16:22.:16:25.

you can't cross at the moment, so more traffic,

:16:26.:16:31.

more damage to the area, damage to It may not look like much now,

:16:32.:16:35.

but one of this site's main assets is that it has access to

:16:36.:16:41.

the rail network for freight. The developers say that will cut

:16:42.:16:44.

down on the number of lorries coming here,

:16:45.:16:46.

and they also say they're willing to This is Danny Bath, who is one of

:16:47.:17:21.

very few rich agents playing in professional football. That is

:17:22.:17:24.

something the FA wants to change. Nick,

:17:25.:17:29.

the Football Association is very And that's why they've organised

:17:30.:17:31.

a series of forums in places with large Asian communities, like this

:17:32.:17:35.

one tonight here at the Hawthorns. Across the Midlands, thousands of

:17:36.:17:38.

British Asians have a real passion for football, as I discovered

:17:39.:17:40.

in the Black Country this morning. The school holidays are

:17:41.:17:44.

in full swing Around two dozen lads have turned up

:17:45.:17:48.

for a training session with Jerusalem Rangers, one of many clubs

:17:49.:17:53.

around the Midlands encouraging youngsters to play the beautiful

:17:54.:17:57.

game at a grassroots level. I've been playing here for two

:17:58.:18:02.

months and it's really good because I want to do this path so I can

:18:03.:18:06.

become a professional footballer. So how many British`born Asian

:18:07.:18:12.

players are playing professional football in the top four English

:18:13.:18:15.

leagues? The answer is just eight,

:18:16.:18:18.

including Adil Nabi at West Brom, Malvind Benning at Walsall,

:18:19.:18:22.

and Danny Batth at Wolves. Danny's father is Indian and his

:18:23.:18:27.

outstanding talent has made him a He said, "It would be great to

:18:28.:18:30.

see more Asian footballers making If that does make me

:18:31.:18:36.

a role model for other aspiring young Asian players,

:18:37.:18:41.

that can only be a positive thing." We need to increase

:18:42.:18:45.

the participation at a foundation level, at a grassroots

:18:46.:18:47.

level, therefore that will filter up to hopefully finding more people

:18:48.:18:50.

in the professional game. And in five or 10 years, will

:18:51.:18:54.

that picture look very different? There is a shift in culture

:18:55.:18:57.

at the moment where football is You have eight players

:18:58.:19:02.

across the four leagues. Let's give the kids that push,

:19:03.:19:09.

let's give ourselves that push to In the meantime, Adam and thousands

:19:10.:19:13.

of youngsters just like him can only work hard and dream of breaking

:19:14.:19:17.

through the glass ceiling and making the grade, but the stats don't lie

:19:18.:19:21.

for British`born Asians aspiring to Let's talk to a couple of guys with

:19:22.:19:38.

an interest in this subject. Adil is one of the young professional agent

:19:39.:19:44.

that owners of the year. Do you regard yourself as a role model? If

:19:45.:19:49.

that is what you want to call it, yeah, a role model to young Asians

:19:50.:19:55.

in deprived areas like I was from, so it can help young lads do what I

:19:56.:20:02.

have supposedly done now, great. You have put in so much hard work, not

:20:03.:20:06.

just yourself but all your family. Yes, if you want to get to the top

:20:07.:20:12.

you have to put hard`working, my mum, my dad, my brothers, so it is a

:20:13.:20:18.

whole family thing, but obviously I get the headlines but there is a lot

:20:19.:20:22.

of work from the family that has to be done. Your father had to change

:20:23.:20:29.

jobs and to all of his brothers on the playing staff. Brendan, a former

:20:30.:20:36.

legendary players here and consulted on equality matters. What more can

:20:37.:20:42.

the FA do? Forums like this where they are having consultations with

:20:43.:20:46.

the Asian community, who make up 5% of the population here, and we want

:20:47.:20:53.

to embrace everyone and we have had one or two come through but we need

:20:54.:20:58.

a deeper pool of talent for that to rise to the top, so that all is

:20:59.:21:02.

lovely, you are welcome, just come forward and be part of it. Is

:21:03.:21:09.

progress being made? I think there is work being done that hopefully

:21:10.:21:14.

you will see, but this problem keeps rising year in year out and we need

:21:15.:21:18.

positive action, which we are trying to do now. The FA's that all four

:21:19.:21:25.

continues here this evening. `` football forum continues.

:21:26.:21:31.

The owner of Hereford United has confirmed to

:21:32.:21:32.

the BBC that he has failed the Football Association's fit and

:21:33.:21:35.

proper person test and is no longer allowed to be involved in the club.

:21:36.:21:38.

Tommy Agombar took over Hereford in June and attended their opening game

:21:39.:21:41.

He says he's invested around ?240,000 in the club

:21:42.:21:45.

and fears that without his support, Hereford will "crash".

:21:46.:21:51.

It's been a successful day for Midlands athletes at the European

was an impressive winner of his heat in the men's 400 metres.

:21:57.:21:59.

He's through to tomorrow's semifinals.

:22:00.:22:02.

Stoke's Ashleigh Nelson set a personal best of 11.19 seconds to

:22:03.:22:06.

qualify for the semifinals of the women's 100 metres.

:22:07.:22:09.

And Birmingham's Hannah England has reached Friday's final

:22:10.:22:14.

Just like our high streets, markets have had to change

:22:15.:22:26.

One of the big successes has been farmers'

:22:27.:22:29.

markets providing produce you don't find on a supermarket shelf.

:22:30.:22:31.

Some are becoming increasingly strict

:22:32.:22:33.

They say that's helping to attract record visitors and sales.

:22:34.:22:36.

In the second part of our series on the state of

:22:37.:22:39.

the region's markets, Ben Godfrey's been to Ludlow, a Shropshire town

:22:40.:22:42.

There's been a market in Ludlow for over 900 years.

:22:43.:22:53.

In the shadow of the castle, 40 stallholders promise quality

:22:54.:22:56.

This isn't Oxford Street where you can sell rubbish

:22:57.:23:02.

People who don't sell quality, who do not maintain quality,

:23:03.:23:05.

So if you didn't hear that message loud

:23:06.:23:10.

Anybody that trades here has to be within 30 miles of that town.

:23:11.:23:16.

Everyone has to make their own product, so if you are selling raw

:23:17.:23:20.

Appleteme are a small company selling apple juice

:23:21.:23:27.

Seven miles away from Ludlow, Jane Cullen and her business

:23:28.:23:33.

partner produce 6000 bottles a year, and they pick, crush and bottle it

:23:34.:23:39.

We supply a growing number of pubs and restaurants

:23:40.:23:45.

and we are stretching as far as Shrewsbury now, so we would

:23:46.:23:51.

like to grow but we want to keep the character of our product.

:23:52.:23:57.

A decade ago, Ludlow built a reputation as a foodie capital,

:23:58.:24:01.

but the recession saw some producers and restaurateurs struggle.

:24:02.:24:05.

The produce market adapted, catching the tourist trade and moving from

:24:06.:24:10.

I'm quite interested in food that's locally grown.

:24:11.:24:16.

I live in Bournemouth and I love to come to Ludlow every time I'm here.

:24:17.:24:19.

For every pound spent here, there is another ?3 that stays

:24:20.:24:23.

There are plans to build a large supermarket

:24:24.:24:29.

It comes as British Market Authorities are seeing reduced

:24:30.:24:34.

footfall as the big players spread more local convenience stores

:24:35.:24:39.

We've got markets now that are reducing in size,

:24:40.:24:43.

Increasingly people are doing what we call click and collect,

:24:44.:24:48.

or shopping via the internet, and that's used now, I think 32

:24:49.:24:51.

However, it removes the human interaction.

:24:52.:24:55.

And that's something this produce market prides itself on ` and

:24:56.:24:59.

the belief that people will travel from afar to buy the local label.

:25:00.:25:12.

Bit of a grey day today weather`wise and somewhat damp in the last couple

:25:13.:25:15.

We are hoping it will be, and we are hoping for the skies to clear

:25:16.:25:27.

tonight, especially in the early as of tomorrow because there is a

:25:28.:25:30.

galactic spectacle in the night skies. We have a supermoon and also

:25:31.:25:36.

the meteor shower, both competing with each other, but the meteor

:25:37.:25:41.

shower were willed peak later tonight, especially towards dawn. By

:25:42.:25:46.

all accounts it looks as though the skies will clear later tonight

:25:47.:25:49.

because the showers today caused by this area of low pressure, which

:25:50.:25:54.

will swing off to the east by tomorrow, that will clear the way

:25:55.:26:00.

for drier conditions. If we look at what is going on now, we still have

:26:01.:26:04.

some angry looking showers over the region or the next couple of those

:26:05.:26:10.

`` couple of hours and those will fade away to leave dry conditions in

:26:11.:26:13.

the early hours and clear skies developing, not everywhere, central

:26:14.:26:18.

parts may have the best chance of seeing the meteor showers, at

:26:19.:26:23.

temperatures will drop to a minimum of 12 Celsius, but tomorrow morning

:26:24.:26:28.

there is a lot of sunshine to be had. Not as wet as today, a lot of

:26:29.:26:34.

dry weather and sunshine but we will see the winds turned to

:26:35.:26:38.

north`westerly as today they were south`westerly. It will cut off the

:26:39.:26:44.

flow of showers from the south`west, there are still a few trickling

:26:45.:26:49.

through the Cheshire gap, very light and sunshine to take temperatures up

:26:50.:26:55.

to around 20 Celsius. We have winds picking up again tomorrow night and

:26:56.:26:58.

that will draw in more showers through the second half of the night

:26:59.:27:03.

and into Thursday, so Thursday we are looking at a return of some

:27:04.:27:08.

fairly lively and prolific showers and that will also lead to winds

:27:09.:27:12.

picking up and it will feel quite cool, but drier by Friday, cooler

:27:13.:27:17.

and quieter. Before I hand back to Nick, a quick mention of Twitter. I

:27:18.:27:24.

am on that, so you can find my official account online.

Espionage. Who would possibly assassinate him?

:28:25.:28:38.

Deception. There's so much more to this story than I thought.

:28:39.:28:42.

And even murder. With a knife! Real shock.

Unravelling the mysteries of their family tree.
