Stephen Evans has deteriorated from being a loving husband

:00:30.:00:37.

It's been very hard to see somebody like him, such a big character,

:00:38.:00:48.

Worst still, it took six ye`rs for him to be diagnosed.

:00:49.:00:55.

They said he can't have Alzheimer's because he's too young

:00:56.:01:02.

for Alzheimer's and dementi`, you don't get until you're over 60

Anita and her family joined 1500 people on

:01:14.:01:16.

a charity walk through Cannock Chase to raise awareness of dementia.

:01:17.:01:21.

For Stephen's daughter, it was a time to reflect.

:01:22.:01:26.

You sort of anticipate your grief because although he is still alive,

:01:27.:01:29.

Stephen is now in a rehabilitation hospital.

:01:30.:01:35.

There are more than 73,000 people across the West Midlands with

:01:36.:01:41.

dementia and according to the Alzheimer's Society, by next year

:01:42.:01:46.

The relatives suffer more than the patients.

They are suffering from it, but it is the family that are grieving

:02:05.:02:19.

Police are investigating after a man was killed

:02:20.:02:21.

when he fell onto the railw`y track at Nuneaton train station.

Detectives had been trying to trace him in connection with the lurder

:02:25.:02:27.

The man's not been formally identified but is believed

Ten Birmingham MP's have wrhtten to the Business Secretary asking

:02:36.:02:39.

for the proposed High Speed Rail College to be based in the city

:02:40.:02:44.

It's where the engineers needed to construct

:02:45.:02:45.

Around 2,000 apprentices ard expected to be part of the scheme.

:02:46.:02:50.

:02:51.:02:53.

A West Midlands based Scotthsh MP says more power should be ddvolved

:03:00.:03:02.

to English regions such as the West Midlands after Thursday's rdferendum

Speaking on Sunday Politics, Steve McCabe,

:03:07.:03:10.

the Labour MP for Selly Oak says many voters see Westminster as being

:03:11.:03:13.

I think that is the feeling that people should be able to decide more

:03:14.:03:29.

locally, investment policies, transport policies, how things are

:03:30.:03:34.

done. I think there sense that Westminster is to reward. `` remote.

A new pensions survey commissioned by the BBC's Inside Out programme

:03:41.:03:43.

has found as many as half of the regions 18 to 60 years olds

:03:44.:03:46.

When people were asked why, the most common answer was they

:03:47.:03:50.

couldn't afford to pay into a private or company scheme.

on Trent with a money expert to find out why so many women are worse

:03:55.:03:58.

off than men and how you can improve your pension prospects.

:03:59.:04:03.

I think for women saving for the retirement is tougher than for men.

:04:04.:04:10.

The error in less than men `nd they live longer. They may take time out

:04:11.:04:17.

from work to have a family. Women find it more off`putting and do not

:04:18.:04:19.

engage in pensions as much. Inside Out's Pension Speci`l is

getting better all the time. We know that following 2012, disabldd people

:04:51.:04:58.

want to be active they just do not know the ways. The hardest thing if

:04:59.:05:04.

you are disabled is to turn up for the first time. If you come with

:05:05.:05:09.

friends and it is a comfort`ble environment, you are more lhkely to

:05:10.:05:13.

do it. So without things like this, disabled people would not bd

:05:14.:05:17.

supported and would not get into sport.

:05:18.:05:18.
