There's been a post-Brexit business meeting in Nottingham today for companies across the East Midlands.

The local Chamber of Commerce says bosses told them they are now preparing for growth outside of the EU but they need more clarity on how the UK will go about leaving the union.

Chris Hobson from the East Midlands Chamber says: “Businesses thrive on certainty and we now need our political leaders to conclude the UK’s exit from the EU in a measured, timely and efficient way."

BBC News Online

Yesterday we ran a story about a Derby care home in which a resident recently died in a fire being told to improve.

Here is the Sherwood Forest Care Home's response to the Care Quality Commission's (CQC) findings...

"We work closely with the CQC and we are pleased the inspection found the service to be caring and responsive, and that the people we support reported they are happy with the care they receive," a care home spokeswoman said.

"We take the CQC’s feedback very seriously, and following the inspection in March 2016 we put in place an action plan to address the points raised in the report. The health and wellbeing of the people we support is always our number one priority, and we look forward to showing full compliance at our next inspection."

Was remain campaign too low key?

Chris Doidge

BBC Radio Derby political reporter

It wasn't a landslide, but across the whole of Derbyshire, a clear majority voted to leave.

The public's interest for the question on the ballot paper was clear - turnout was the highest it's been since 1997. 

But did the Remain campaign let this slip? Could they have worked harder and achieved a different result?

Locally, their campaign appeared to be lower-key, less well organised and much less enthusiastic than that of the Leave campaign.
