Plans to restrict knee and hip replacements in Worcestershire

in the health service, but there is a fundamental

:03:32.:03:37.

question about whether it is going to the right places

:03:38.:03:40.

and is being allocated fairly. If the British public wants

:03:41.:03:42.

to spend more on the NHS, and it looks like they do,

:03:43.:03:47.

then we will continue to do that. We are doing that at the moment,

the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. Is Worcestershire alone

:03:58.:04:05.

in taking this action? No, not at all. Shropshire took this

:04:06.:04:20.

action sometime last year, and their situation was even more draconian.

:04:21.:04:24.

It was five points more serious before you have a hip operation. We

:04:25.:04:29.

will be seeing more of this. If you look at the NHS five-year plan, they

:04:30.:04:33.

look at cutting operations. Sometimes up to 20%. Many hospitals

:04:34.:04:39.

have said it. It is not just hips and knees, back operations are also

:04:40.:04:45.

going to be reduced. Henne has agreed to be reduced as well. We're

:04:46.:04:50.

going to see less IDF being available, and the big issue is we

:04:51.:04:53.

have an ageing population which require more care and we need

:04:54.:05:00.

funding to provide. Could some people be waiting longer just

:05:01.:05:05.

because of where they'll? This is one of the fundamental questions

:05:06.:05:09.

about the NHS, because the idea is where ever you are, wherever you

:05:10.:05:16.

are, you get the same treatment. This is not necessarily going to be

:05:17.:05:21.

the case now. Wheels the issue of funding. Some areas do receive more

:05:22.:05:25.

funding than others. We have elderly people who are deciding to leave

:05:26.:05:29.

their houses in the city, liquidate their money, getting the countryside

:05:30.:05:33.

and that is putting pressure on those rural areas like

:05:34.:05:37.

Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire.

:05:38.:05:41.

Despite several national campaigns, some motorists continue to break

:05:42.:05:43.

the law by using their mobile phones while driving,

:05:44.:05:45.

Between 2014 and 2015, West Midlands Police issued over

:05:46.:05:50.

2,000 penalty notices, while in the West Mercia force

:05:51.:05:53.

The lowest figure in our region was recorded by Gloucestershire Police,

:05:54.:06:03.

Elizabeth Glinka has spent the day on patrol with police

:06:04.:06:06.

in Staffordshire where 1,800 notices were issued

:06:07.:06:08.

There can't be many people who don't realise that holding or talking on

:06:09.:06:21.

your mobile phone while driving is illegal. And yet people still do it.

:06:22.:06:27.

She is talking to somebody. Her phone is in her hand. We are on

:06:28.:06:34.

patrol with Staffordshire police. They have just stopped a woman who

:06:35.:06:37.

was talking on her phone using the loudspeaker. Any use of a phone

:06:38.:06:45.

other than hands-free constitutes an offence. Is that a popular

:06:46.:06:49.

misconception that the loudspeaker is OK? A little bit of that and a

:06:50.:06:54.

little bit of our just habit on and people won't notice. Amongst the

:06:55.:06:59.

people we stopped, there seems to be a mix of confusion and those who

:07:00.:07:06.

admit to a momentary lapse. It is against the law. You see as a fair

:07:07.:07:14.

cop. Yeah, I understand. The typical penalty for this offence is three

:07:15.:07:18.

points on your license and a fine of about ?100. These forces also have

:07:19.:07:22.

discretion with some operating safety courses as an alternative.

:07:23.:07:28.

All of that look set to change. The Government is introducing a new

:07:29.:07:31.

system which would mean an automatic six points on your license and fines

:07:32.:07:38.

of ?200. The aim is to create a deterrent in a world where we had a

:07:39.:07:42.

big key to our phones. This young driver was paying a bill. Mobile

:07:43.:07:49.

phone in hand. When we talk to him, it is clear that sometimes the

:07:50.:07:56.

temptation is too much. It makes you want to pick the phone up and look

:07:57.:08:01.

at it. Leave your phone alone concentrate on driving. That is what

:08:02.:08:04.

is important. Because prices are serious. Including four other

:08:05.:08:10.

members of the public. The battle for hearts and minds continues.

:08:11.:08:14.

A 25-year-old man from Birmingham has appeared in court charged

:08:15.:08:17.

with murdering a man on a bus on Monday night.

:08:18.:08:20.

36-year-old Leon Barrett-Hazle from Smethwick was stabbed

:08:21.:08:23.

and killed as he rode on the top deck of the 11A in Handsworth .

:08:24.:08:26.

Kieran Gillespie who lives in Handsworth denies the charge.

:08:27.:08:32.

Staffordshire Police are investigating a cannabis factory

:08:33.:08:35.

discovered in a series of basements in Burton on Trent.

:08:36.:08:38.

Around 800 cannabis plants have so far been recovered,

:08:39.:08:41.

with a possible street value estimated at ?400,000.

:08:42.:08:46.

The police say it's one of the largest cannabis factories

:08:47.:08:51.

It is a massive basement area underneath a large premises where

:08:52.:08:58.

several rooms, all large, have been utilised to grow the cannabis,

:08:59.:09:01.

including water supply and electricity.

:09:02.:09:05.

It is so large that a tractor and trailer was utilised in

:09:06.:09:08.

order to remove the goods from here, and that was obviously noted by

:09:09.:09:12.

members of the public who called it into us.

:09:13.:09:18.

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, and there have been events

:09:19.:09:20.

across the Midlands to remember the atrocities.

:09:21.:09:22.

Originally created as a remembrance day for the mass murder of Jews

:09:23.:09:25.

at the hands of Nazi Germany, the day also commemorates more

:09:26.:09:29.

recent genocides such as Rwanda, Darfur and Cambodia.

:09:30.:09:33.

You may find some of the pictures in Kevin Reide's report, disturbing.

:09:34.:09:38.

In wolverhampton today, many gathered to remember those

:09:39.:09:40.

who perished for no other reason than for who they were.

:09:41.:09:44.

A service was held and wreath layed at the Cenotaph

:09:45.:09:47.

in St Peter's Square, then a statement of

:09:48.:09:49.

But about Holocaust Memorial Day is a chance for us to stop and remember

:09:50.:10:03.

the horrors of the Second World War, and the Nazi regime, as well as all

:10:04.:10:07.

those other places since then where other genocides have taken place.

:10:08.:10:09.

The day was created to remember the six million Jews

:10:10.:10:11.

who were exterminated in death camps across Nazi Germany and Poland.

:10:12.:10:14.

Susi Bechofer who lives in Rugby survived when she and her twin

:10:15.:10:16.

were amongst 10,000 Jewish children rescued from Germany

:10:17.:10:19.

She's written a book about her Mum, Rosa, who had to stay in Germany

:10:20.:10:26.

before being taken to Auschwitz's gas chambers, all

:10:27.:10:29.

This is a tribute to browser, and all the parents who relinquished

:10:30.:10:46.

their children to be safe. The majority of parents perished in gas

:10:47.:10:48.

chambers. Today National Holocaust Day

:10:49.:10:49.

is also about remembering all genocides such as Rwanda,

:10:50.:10:51.

Cambodia and Darfur. At the Hive in Worcester, Jewish,

:10:52.:10:55.

Muslim and Christian communities As well as children from five

:10:56.:11:10.

schools. I think it is important for young people to be educated about

:11:11.:11:13.

what happened, so we can pay our respects. What happened to people's

:11:14.:11:20.

grandparents, parents and great-grandparents, it shouldn't be

:11:21.:11:21.

forgotten. And for Susi, it's about

:11:22.:11:21.

turning horror to hope. I think valuing other people for who

:11:22.:11:31.

they are, whatever their race or creed, is paramount.

:11:32.:11:33.

Thanks for joining us on Midlands Today, this is our top

story tonight: Plans to restrict knee and hip operations

in Worcestershire to those in severe pain.

:11:43.:11:47.

You've been getting in touch with us on this story.

:11:48.:11:49.

Rosalie Daubney says "If they don't agree to do my husband's knee soon,

Why the RSPB needs you to keep your eyes peeled this weekend.

:12:21.:12:40.

New figures released show that Coventry University is the highest

:12:41.:12:48.

in student intake. More than 8000 students were accepted places across

:12:49.:12:55.

the university group. The future of farming and the Brexit is still

:12:56.:12:57.

uncertain. As with the referendum itself,

:12:58.:12:58.

some in agriculture are optimistic, while others fear

:12:59.:13:00.

for their livelihood. Joanne Gallacher has been to meet

:13:01.:13:02.

two farmers who have a very different take on the future

:13:03.:13:05.

of farming after we leave Newborn lambs - a sign of fresh

:13:06.:13:07.

starts and new beginnings, but for this Oswestry farmer,

:13:08.:13:11.

the future's a worry. Malcolm Roberts exports his produce

:13:12.:13:14.

to France, Italy Spain and Germany. In fact, 40% of UK

:13:15.:13:19.

lamb goes to Europe. He voted to remain in

:13:20.:13:21.

the European Union and is concerned Brexit could make things

:13:22.:13:23.

difficult down on the farm. Our business needs sound economic

:13:24.:13:37.

growth, and my time of life I hate to say it, but if we are messing

:13:38.:13:40.

around with our business for the next 15 or 20 years, that is

:13:41.:13:42.

probably going my career done. The message from the Government

:13:43.:13:43.

is everything will be fine, Can see the concern. And join it

:13:44.:13:57.

will still be subsidies but the devil is in the detail. Every

:13:58.:14:00.

individual farmer gets a different subsidy depending on the size and

:14:01.:14:02.

efficiency of the farm. Farming accounts for about ?1

:14:03.:14:03.

billion worth of business a year On farms like these, farmers receive

:14:04.:14:16.

around ?70 an acre in EE subsidies, but with Brexit that money is likely

:14:17.:14:19.

to go. Leave campaigner Owen Paterson

:14:20.:14:19.

is the MP for this area. He says farmers like Malcolm have

:14:20.:14:22.

nothing to fear from Brexit. They have a wonderful opportunity to

:14:23.:14:32.

help design a completely new rural policy tailored around their

:14:33.:14:35.

industry and our environment. Just 50 miles away in Staffordshire,

:14:36.:14:36.

the atmosphere on this 500-acre beef and arable farm

:14:37.:14:38.

is one of excitement. He wants to take back

:14:39.:14:41.

control and he has no We're still in Europe, we still farm

:14:42.:14:56.

in Europe, we still trade with Europe. I still think in the future

:14:57.:14:59.

we will be trading in Europe. They need us, we need them.

:15:00.:15:00.

There may be a stand-off for now, but it's inevitable there'll be

:15:01.:15:03.

a locking of horns as ministers try to get right the terms of Brexit

:15:04.:15:07.

And you can see more on that story on Sunday politics

:15:08.:15:15.

The RSPB's big garden birdwatch starts this weekend.

:15:16.:15:26.

The charity's asking us to record the birds that visit our gardens

:15:27.:15:29.

over the course of an hour, so they can work out

:15:30.:15:32.

which species are doing well, and which ones are struggling.

:15:33.:15:35.

So for some top garden bird-watching tips we sent environment

:15:36.:15:38.

correspondent David Gregory-Kumar to meet Springwatch star

:15:39.:15:41.

Kate MacRae, who took these amazing pictures

:15:42.:15:43.

Last year in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch,

:15:44.:15:52.

So let's get some tips for this weekend.

:15:53.:15:59.

What are your top tips for how to feed birds,

:16:00.:16:01.

how to get more birds into your garden?

:16:02.:16:03.

Well, I think you have to think of it a bit like a

:16:04.:16:07.

The more different kinds of food you can put out

:16:08.:16:10.

and different kinds of ways you can feed them, then the more

:16:11.:16:13.

different species you're going to attract because not all birds like

:16:14.:16:16.

the same food and not all like feeding in the same way.

:16:17.:16:20.

Kate has spotted over 50 different bird species

:16:21.:16:31.

But about a lot of the cheap stuff is bowled out with wheat, and the

:16:32.:16:37.

only species that are going to like the plea by the pigeons. It isn't

:16:38.:16:41.

worth saving up spending a little bit more and having a bit more of a

:16:42.:16:45.

gourmet mix, you will get a better selection of species. Cake has

:16:46.:16:50.

bodied many different species. The Midlands gardenwatch top five:

:16:51.:16:51.

sparrow, blue tip, starling, blackbird and wood pigeon have

:16:52.:16:53.

all been caught by her cameras. But she records less

:16:54.:16:56.

common visitors, too, Well, one that is always

:16:57.:16:57.

really exciting to get is the woodpecker, and Great Spotted

:16:58.:17:01.

Woodpeckers were another species that have taken advantage

:17:02.:17:04.

of our changing in the way we feed. And this year the whole

:17:05.:17:09.

event has been extended by a day

:17:10.:17:11.

to cover the Monday as well as the weekend,

:17:12.:17:13.

and that means you don't

:17:14.:17:14.

have to do a whole hour in your garden,

:17:15.:17:16.

you could Garden Birdwatch is our largest

:17:17.:17:18.

citizen science experiment, providing vital information on how

:17:35.:17:49.

but Wolves are the 10-1 outsiders to pull off a shock

:17:50.:17:58.

victory against Liverpool. Anyone who saw them cruise past

:17:59.:18:01.

Stoke City in round three might But one former Liverpool player

:18:02.:18:04.

knows exactly how tough He was born in the red half

:18:05.:18:08.

of Merseyside, joined Liverpool's Academy aged six,

:18:09.:18:16.

spent 15 years with the club, played twice for the first team,

:18:17.:18:20.

But never at Anfield ... How are you? 24 hours before the big

:18:21.:18:36.

game. But Mac I can't wait. It is good to be a great occasion.

:18:37.:18:38.

Everyone is looking forward to it. No wonder Conor Coady was chuffed

:18:39.:18:39.

to bits when Liverpool Because he'd already set his heart

:18:40.:18:42.

on playing for Wolves at the home If only Wolves can repeat the sort

:18:43.:18:46.

of form they showed three weeks A little bird tells EU went bananas

:18:47.:19:01.

when the draw was made. Yak, to draw them was fantastic. It is massive

:19:02.:19:04.

for everybody. Everybody was to be on the best team.

:19:05.:19:06.

If only Wolves can repeat the sort of form they showed three weeks

:19:07.:19:09.

ago to beat Stoke City, they must have a chance.

:19:10.:19:11.

Ok, so the bookies disagree and make Liverpool

:19:12.:19:13.

But few people know the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp better

:19:14.:19:18.

They go back a long way, and share a strong connection

:19:19.:19:23.

Very nice guy, but even when he is nice, I would like to send him home

:19:24.:19:36.

with empty hands. Tomorrow lunchtime,

:19:37.:19:38.

Klopp's got the Kop, but Lambert's got lots of very loud

:19:39.:19:40.

Wolves fans, more Labour's support has been fantastic

:19:41.:19:51.

since I have been here. We're going to have two weather a storm at

:19:52.:19:55.

Anfield, but the supporters will help us. If the sport is the winning

:19:56.:19:59.

normally do it will be a great atmosphere. Will you touch the

:20:00.:20:07.

Anfield sign? ' no, I play for Wills. It is the other way around,

:20:08.:20:09.

maybe. Not this weekend. Good luck. But today an apology

:20:10.:20:20.

from Saido Berahino to Albion fans. Yes we heard from Berahino

:20:21.:20:25.

today for the first time since making his ?12 million move

:20:26.:20:27.

from Albion to Stoke City. Now Berahino has been

:20:28.:20:31.

agitating for a move away from the Hawthorns

:20:32.:20:34.

for the past two seasons. But today the 23-year-old

:20:35.:20:37.

said that the Albion I have got regrets, I could have

:20:38.:20:53.

handled it better. I was still a young lad, I was in a situation

:20:54.:20:57.

where most footballers ever BN. You live and learn. We are here now, and

:20:58.:21:01.

I'm just glad to be here. The Birmingham Bears were given

:21:02.:21:06.

a civic reception this afternoon. That's to recognise their victory

:21:07.:21:15.

in the One Day Cup They were at Lords on the 29th

:21:16.:21:17.

of August last year. But for cricket-lovers the good news
