  3. 'Dangerous' paedophile sent back to jail

    BBC Local Live

    A paedophile, who was found to be volunteering at a social club where families often took their children, has been jailed.

    Alan Carlson

    Alan Carlson, formerly of Portland Road, Hucknall, pleaded guilty to four counts of breaching a sexual offences order.

    The order, handed down to Carlson in 2001, prevented him from being in contact with anyone under the age of 16.

    Det Con Lisa Avvio from Nottinghamshire Police said: "Carlson had been slowly integrating himself into a community over the past three years.

    "He put himself forward to volunteer during ‘Family Night’ socials and often used sweets and expensive gifts to interact with them.

    "The way Carlson completely disregarded his sexual offences order, proves how little remorse he has for his previous actions or understanding of how inappropriate they were; a dangerous attitude to have in a community involving children."

  4. Analysis: Danny Drinkwater asks to leave Leicester

    Ian Stringer

    BBC Radio Leicester

    Leicester don't need to sell and certainly don't want to, so if Drinkwater is to move, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is going to have to sign a big cheque.

    Danny Drinkwater

    Drinkwater will be a loss to Leicester. He's strong and rugged but his range of passing is most impressive.

    And while he'll have to get past Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko to partner his old chum Kante, that isn't something which will faze him. He's sure of himself, focused and disciplined.

    This is phase two of the dismantling of Leicester's class of 2015/16 and, sadly, it was always going to happen.

  5. Trial date set for Carlton flat murder

  8. Mike Ashley 'will regret' suing former colleague

    Gavin Bevis

    BBC Local Live

    A former Newcastle United director being sued by Mike Ashley over an investment dispute involving a French golf course has branded the Sports Direct boss's legal claim "malicious fiction".

    Papers lodged at the High Court in London allege breach of contract over a deal with Tony Jimenez made in 2008.

    Mr Ashley, who also owns Newcastle United Football Club, is demanding the return of a £3m investment or compensation.

    Mike Ashley

    In a written statement, Mr Jimenez said: "Mike Ashley will regret the day he embarked on this action and now seeks to reopen events from 2008.

    "This fabricated and malicious claim will be vigorously defended and the full details of the relevant agreements and the background to them, including the obligations arising from his failed sale of Newcastle United FC, will be set out in the appropriate courtin a significant claim from me and the other parties involved”.

    Some homes in the Long Eaton area are without water at the moment.

    Severn Trent said the problem - affecting properties in the NG10 postcode area - was caused by water pipes being damaged by a third party and it was working to get it sorted as quickly as possible.

  13. Foxes in pole position to sign Jonny Evans?

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Leicester City appear to be involved in a complicated tangle involving Arsenal, Manchester City and Inter Milan in their bid to try to sign West Brom's Jonny Evans.

    Shkodran Mustafi, Jonny Evans and Eliaquim Mangala

    The Foxes had a £23m bid for the Northern Ireland international rejected last week.

    But Inter Milan have made no progress in their efforts to sign Eliaquim Mangala or Shkodran Mustafi, so no-one can be entirely sure which clubs can move on the Evans deal and which clubs can't.

    Arsenal, Manchester City and Leicester want Evans. Arsenal need to release Mustafi. West Brom want Mangala. Will either of those players end up at the San Siro?

  14. Covers off at Trent Bridge

    Jo Healey

    East Midlands Today

    A 16-year-old girl's been giving video evidence in the trial of Dilan Amin.

    At Derby Crown Court, the 27-year-old shopkeeper denies a series of sex offences, including rape, against seven girls, one aged 12.

    International Hotel

    One of the girls, who was 15 in December told how Amin and another man drove her and another girl to the International Hotel in Derby.

    She said they drank vodka, whisky and took cocaine. The court heard Amin had sex with her though she "remembers saying no to him".

    The trial's continuing.
