Hello and welcome to Midlands Today. so it's goodbye from me -

:00:00.:00:00.

The headlines tonight: Countdown to June eighth

:00:00.:00:07.

With four weeks to go until the general election, we are in Dudley,

:00:08.:00:15.

gauging the public mood. Also tonight: Celebrating the best

:00:16.:00:17.

of the great outdoors: Join me later at the foot of the

:00:18.:00:28.

Malvern Hills at what is firmly the best spring gardening in Britain.

:00:29.:00:35.

Join me and the boxing girls to find out why they're film stars today.

:00:36.:00:36.

And temperatures in the twenties and lovely sunshine today,

:00:37.:00:38.

but the gardens need a drink, and it's on the way,

:00:39.:00:41.

find out more with me a little later.

:00:42.:00:56.

With exactly four weeks to go until polling day,

:00:57.:01:00.

nominations have now closed for candidates standing

:01:01.:01:02.

So today was always going to be a big moment for those seats

:01:03.:01:09.

where there are slim majorities in the run-up to June the 8th.

:01:10.:01:12.

And that was even before the leak of Labour's draft manifesto.

:01:13.:01:15.

Our political editor Patrick Burns is here to survey

:01:16.:01:17.

Our part of the country has generally been much more

:01:18.:01:20.

of a two-party affair than most other areas of Britain,

:01:21.:01:22.

with our clusters of marginal seats, flip-flopping back and forth

:01:23.:01:25.

between Labour and the Conservatives.

:01:26.:01:28.

And there are so many of them, that they really do have a genuine

:01:29.:01:33.

There's no clearer demonstration of this than Dudley.

:01:34.:01:36.

A town with two marginal seats, one Conservative, the other Labour.

:01:37.:01:39.

And it's from there that Ben Godfrey reports.

:01:40.:01:44.

It's a beautiful day in Dudley North, a seat held by

:01:45.:01:47.

Labour since its creation in 1987 but high on the

:01:48.:01:49.

We've come to, yes, Corbyn Road to see what people are thinking.

:01:50.:01:57.

First we met Mandy Yerster, an undecided voter who wants

:01:58.:01:59.

the next Government to champion social care.

:02:00.:02:04.

Giving single parents a little bit more leeway, childcare,

:02:05.:02:08.

because my son is autistic, a little bit help with regards

:02:09.:02:10.

I haven't really heard anything yet as regards to social care.

:02:11.:02:16.

With decent support for Labour, the Conservatives and Ukip in this

:02:17.:02:18.

area, it's no surprise the big hitters have been pounding

:02:19.:02:21.

Far from getting ready for the next politician to visit -

:02:22.:02:32.

Lyndon Corbett - just to clear it up, he's the Corbyn Road beekeeper

:02:33.:02:35.

would welcome a ban on zero hours contract hours.

:02:36.:02:37.

Lyndon also runs a business providing home care to locals.

:02:38.:02:39.

It would be beneficial because we don't get paid

:02:40.:02:42.

Basically, when you're doing a 15-minute call

:02:43.:02:45.

for an old-age pensioner, you don't have enough time

:02:46.:02:47.

to communicate with them and that's what they need most of all.

:02:48.:02:54.

Retired shop worker Betty had a bee in her bonnet when I caught up

:02:55.:02:57.

What would you like the next Government to do for you?

:02:58.:03:02.

Well, I'd like them to put this country straight.

:03:03.:03:04.

There is a lot of men in London, they aren't in the real world.

:03:05.:03:10.

The are in cuckoo land and my bus is here and I'm off.

:03:11.:03:13.

At the barbershop nearby, we met one young businessman

:03:14.:03:21.

Definitely with the NHS, I think they should plough

:03:22.:03:24.

Policing, any of the public services.

:03:25.:03:31.

Some polling experts suggest Dudley North may turn blue

:03:32.:03:36.

in fours weeks' time, but on on Corbyn Road we found many

:03:37.:03:40.

We went back to Mandy's house, she makes a living as a psychic.

:03:41.:03:44.

Who's going to win the general election?

:03:45.:03:45.

That's for me to know and you not to!

:03:46.:03:55.

Even the psychics sitting on the fence!

:03:56.:04:00.

Patrick, you've just said our local marginal seats

:04:01.:04:02.

And yet you're telling us that this will be an election like no other.

:04:03.:04:07.

Instead of just taking the poll ratings and applying them

:04:08.:04:15.

to the swings required in the familiar Nuneatons,

:04:16.:04:17.

Tamworths and Cannocks of this World, you have to view it

:04:18.:04:19.

through the prism of Brexit, in a region where most voters

:04:20.:04:22.

But now Ukip aren't standing in three North Birmingham seats

:04:23.:04:27.

currently held by Labour, a boost for the Conservatives there.

:04:28.:04:31.

Three of Labour's other Birmingham seats could also be vulnerable

:04:32.:04:33.

to Conservative challenges, including Edgbaston, where

:04:34.:04:35.

On the other hand Labour will have Telford in their sites.

:04:36.:04:42.

They need a swing against the Conservatives of

:04:43.:04:46.

The "front line" does appear to be shifting in other cities too.

:04:47.:04:54.

Stoke, Wolverhampton and Coventry are solid blocks of red

:04:55.:04:57.

But Labour face serious Conservative challenges in Stoke South,

:04:58.:05:07.

All places where Vote Leave won big last June, so expect Brexit to loom

:05:08.:05:10.

The Lib Dems' prime target here is Cheltenham.

:05:11.:05:16.

They need a 12% swing to win it back from the Conservatives.

:05:17.:05:21.

They have a strong anti-Brexit message in a town which voted

:05:22.:05:23.

But with a month to go, there's ample time for some

:05:24.:05:27.

unexpected twists turns before polling day.

:05:28.:05:31.

Drayton Manor Park in Staffordshire will be closed again

:05:32.:05:33.

tomorrow following the death of a schoolgirl from Leicester.

:05:34.:05:36.

11-year-old Eva Janneth was on the Splash Canyon Rapids

:05:37.:05:38.

on Tuesday when she fell into the water.

:05:39.:05:40.

The park closed yesterday as a mark of respect and remained closed today

:05:41.:05:43.

so health and safety officials can complete their investigations.

:05:44.:05:50.

Sarah Bishop is at the park for us this evening.

:05:51.:05:53.

Sarah, a number of other theme parks have closed their water

:05:54.:05:55.

rides since Eva's death, including Alton Towers

:05:56.:05:59.

and Thorpe Park, do we know any more about how safe these rides are?

:06:00.:06:07.

I've been speaking to a theme park safety expert

:06:08.:06:14.

who told me these water rides are generally perceived as pretty

:06:15.:06:17.

safe, come under same safety law as roller coasters and are subject

:06:18.:06:20.

to same strict maintenance and fatigue checks.

:06:21.:06:23.

He'd done some calculations on Drayton Manor ride,

:06:24.:06:25.

which he reckoned been used by between 20 and 30 million people

:06:26.:06:28.

He only found one documented incident of someone

:06:29.:06:35.

But that doesn't account for how people act when they're on the ride.

:06:36.:06:48.

There is speculation that Eva may have stood up to switch seats.

:06:49.:07:00.

her death is the first serious injury accidents here at Drayton

:07:01.:07:08.

Manor in its 67 year history. Have Eva's family said any more? We had a

:07:09.:07:14.

heart wrenching statement from them yesterday in which they said their

:07:15.:07:23.

world had been torn apart. They have asked to be left alone to grieve in

:07:24.:07:29.

private. The postmortem takes place on Monday and we are thinking they

:07:30.:07:32.

will have the funeral midweek in Leicester.

:07:33.:07:40.

Think they're anticipating many people will want to come

:07:41.:07:42.

and pay their respects as tragic circumstances of Eva's death

:07:43.:07:44.

In the last laugh, we've had a statement from the park saying it

:07:45.:07:51.

will be closed again tomorrow well investigations continue. -- in the

:07:52.:07:54.

last hour. A man's been charged

:07:55.:07:58.

with using drones to fly drugs and mobile phones

:07:59.:08:01.

into Birmingham Prison - the first prosecution of its kind

:08:02.:08:03.

secured by West Midlands Police. Drones were allegedly used to drop

:08:04.:08:06.

contraband into an exercise yard at the jail in October

:08:07.:08:08.

and November last year. 27-year-old Michael Tovey,

and unpredictable disease and I wouldn't want anyone to go

working on the beaches Undoubtedly, the sunshine I had then

:09:54.:09:58.

is instrumental in melanoma that I would urge people to cover up

:09:59.:10:06.

because that's easier than putting on sun block and having

:10:07.:10:16.

to reapply it. Doctors say it's vital

:10:17.:10:18.

for us to apply sun cream BEFORE we go in the sun,

:10:19.:10:25.

and that's because we all have a different burning threshold -

when our skin starts to turn pink. Sunscreen helps to combat the sun's

up and instead cover up. It's got more Michelin-starred

:11:54.:12:11.

restaurants than any other place outside London -

:12:12.:12:15.

hardly surprising then that so many people are opting to sample

:12:16.:12:22.

Birmingham's culinary delights. But one restaurant says it's

:12:23.:12:24.

losing thousands of pounds because people aren't showing up

:12:25.:12:26.

despite booking a table. But is it right for

:12:27.:12:28.

restaurateurs to get tough? Our business correspondent

:12:29.:12:30.

Peter Plisner's been getting Birmingham is home to 5

:12:31.:12:32.

Michelin-starred restaurants. As a rule they tend to take your

:12:33.:12:41.

card details when you book. They can charge a hefty cancellation

:12:42.:12:48.

fee. The big chain restaurants

:12:49.:12:51.

behind me don't do that But at many smaller places,

:12:52.:12:53.

if people don't show, then they stand to lose

:12:54.:12:56.

a lot of money. An increasingly popular

:12:57.:12:59.

restaurant close to Birmingham's New Street Station,

:13:00.:13:03.

it's reckoned that last week alone they lost ?1,000

:13:04.:13:05.

because of no shows. Its head chef says

:13:06.:13:11.

that's not sustainable. It varies week to week,

:13:12.:13:15.

there are no hard or fast rules but to give you an idea,

:13:16.:13:24.

we have 24 seats, so if one table of two decides not to show,

:13:25.:13:27.

that's almost 10% of our I have five chefs with me

:13:28.:13:30.

in the kitchen, I have five people out in front,

:13:31.:13:34.

it's a fine balancing act and it has Now it may seem like a pretty

:13:35.:13:37.

controversial step to take, but speaking to people earlier

:13:38.:13:41.

today, most seem to I can understand their point of view

:13:42.:13:44.

and I can understand their position, but they could lose trade

:13:45.:13:52.

because we're not used to it I think that's fair enough if it's

:13:53.:13:54.

a small restaurant and you don't If it's a big chain

:13:55.:14:01.

that was proposing to do this, I think I'd probably

:14:02.:14:07.

have the opposite opinion. Well, joining me here Birmingham

:14:08.:14:09.

food blogger, Laura Creaven. I think it's a really positive move.

:14:10.:14:19.

I think the Wilderness have been very vocal about their cancellations

:14:20.:14:24.

and no shows and it's a problem affecting a lot of smaller

:14:25.:14:26.

restaurants in Birmingham, smaller ones can't handle people not showing

:14:27.:14:31.

up because it has lost revenue. It's not really different from a

:14:32.:14:34.

cancellation charge if you feel to cancel in time. Absolutely not. It's

:14:35.:14:39.

similar to what you would do if you are looking to go to the cinema or

want to go to exciting restaurants like the Wilderness will pay up

:14:55.:15:01.

Some say they make even charge a fee for the cheapest four course meal so

:15:02.:15:05.

you're paying for the wholemeal upfront. That's similar to what you

:15:06.:15:08.

would do if you are going to the theatre for the cinema, you would

:15:09.:15:12.

pay upfront for that's why not do it for your dinner? I was Birmingham

:15:13.:15:17.

doing for the food front? It's a positive, vibrant scene, especially

:15:18.:15:21.

street food and a Michelin star restaurants, it's an exciting time

:15:22.:15:27.

for dining out in Birmingham. as Lorna said, they do tend to pay

:15:28.:15:30.

upfront for many things these days, so why not a meal at a restaurant?

:15:31.:15:33.

-- you do tend to pay upfront. Time for sport and Dan

Ben Sidwell's not gone quite as far as that,

:18:36.:18:37.

but he did make it to Malvern on the trail of plant history.

:18:38.:18:45.

Yes, welcome to the plant finder parlour. This is at the IHS -- RHS

:18:46.:18:58.

at Malvern. 19th century explorers would have returned with exotic

:18:59.:19:01.

species like these ferns which they were very excited about. As I been

:19:02.:19:05.

finding out, many of these plants are now commonplace in all our

:19:06.:19:06.

gardens. In the shadow of the Malvern Hills,

:19:07.:19:11.

some of the greatest flora and fauna the world has two offer and for

:19:12.:19:17.

this, we need to thank the Victorians which is what they're

:19:18.:19:21.

doing this year at RHS Spring Festival. At the heart of the floral

:19:22.:19:24.

marquee is the plant finder's parlour, designed by Joe Swift. It

:19:25.:19:34.

is important to the intrepid explorers who search the world of

:19:35.:19:39.

exotic plants. They would search for months on end, some of them would

:19:40.:19:42.

never come back, someone come back with broken legs and they would go

:19:43.:19:48.

in search for clients and bring them back in Edwardian cases because they

:19:49.:19:50.

couldn't figure out how to get the plans back. you don't have to go far

:19:51.:19:54.

to find species Victorians brought back far shores. These carnivorous

:19:55.:20:00.

plants are from Malaysia and Indonesia. It was brought on by the

:20:01.:20:04.

Victorians and remains in cultivation today so that wasn't for

:20:05.:20:08.

the plant hunters, they wouldn't be in conservation. There was one type

:20:09.:20:12.

of plant that surprisingly got the Victorians more excited than any

:20:13.:20:16.

other. Now grown in abundance in Warwickshire, in the 19th century

:20:17.:20:22.

can get enough of ferns -- couldn't get enough. There was a period known

:20:23.:20:27.

as fair and fever and they went mad for building little got was like

into it and went with it. It was really good, we had

a good time, really good. Judge for yourselves

when the best images from today's shoot hit our television

screens next month. We'll have the weather in just a

:23:39.:23:55.

moment, but look at this. This was yesterday afternoon in Shropshire.

:23:56.:24:02.

The nationwide plant hire company have a large dusty yard and this is

:24:03.:24:06.

what is known as the dust tornado or dust devil. Thank you to Stewart for

:24:07.:24:14.

sending us those pictures. Very dry in Shropshire but I'm told it will

:24:15.:24:15.

not stay that way tomorrow. Rebecca. Changes on the way but it has been

:24:16.:24:24.

pleasant today. The wind has picked up so it may be windy through

:24:25.:24:28.

tonight but it was a break but chilly start to the day today,

:24:29.:24:31.

temperatures touching freezing in parts of Shropshire but helped by

:24:32.:24:35.

sunshine through the day. We saw the temperatures rise by 20 Celsius in

:24:36.:24:40.

some spots. Lovely sunshine but through the afternoon, we started to

:24:41.:24:43.

see the cloud filtering in, making the sunshine here at times and

:24:44.:24:47.

finally, for the Gardners, something to give them a sky of relief, we

:24:48.:24:54.

started to see rain pushing in. Heavy downpours and lightning

:24:55.:24:58.

flashes in there as well. As for tomorrow, we're going to continue to

:24:59.:25:01.

see the chance of some showers but they will be some sunny spells

:25:02.:25:05.

around those as well. For tonight, high pressure that has been driving

:25:06.:25:09.

our weather for the past few weeks has skidded out of the way. We got

:25:10.:25:13.

low controlling the weather and that is going to start to introduce

:25:14.:25:17.

something more unsettled so through tonight, we're going to see some

:25:18.:25:20.

showers working there way northwards and those showers are going to

:25:21.:25:24.

introduce something a little bit muddier overnight so temperatures

:25:25.:25:34.

are at ten to 13 -- more muggy. We will get some brighter breaks. More

:25:35.:25:41.

cloud and showers following behind but the showers will be triggered by

:25:42.:25:46.

that unstable atmosphere. The cloud might have hail and thunder in there

:25:47.:25:50.

and temperatures will be down on where they are today but by the end

:25:51.:25:53.

of the day they will ease as we lose the powder from the sun and we will

:25:54.:25:56.

see them dying out overnight but it will be another muggy Knight. As for

:25:57.:26:05.

Saturday, a drier affair with the odd shower around. It is definitely

:26:06.:26:13.

some rain in the forecast. It's good news for the Gardners but if you

:26:14.:26:18.

like the sunshine you will have to wait a little bit.

:26:19.:26:21.

I'll be back at 10:30 with your late update.
