    BBC News

    The owners of a Derbyshire restaurant which was severely damaged when a car crash into it say they had only just finished a refurbishment.

    Rex Howell, who runs the Bay Tree on the corner of Potter Street and Derby Road in Melbourne, told BBC Radio Derby: "It's all brand new, two weeks old. It's heartbreaking.

    "I heard a bang like something had come through the ceiling and my wife came screaming and saying there's a car parked in the restaurant."

    His wife, Susie Howell, said everything including the bar and tables had been destroyed.

    "We'll now have to try and get builders in and people to shovel out everything from outside that's gone inside," she said.

    One of the two occupants of the vehicle was treated for minor injuries.

    If you're missing a phone similar to this, it could be with police at Clifton Station.

    Officers have invited the owner to collect it after it was dropped by a youngster who ran off when police responded to complaints of anti social behaviour at the Lark Hill retirement village.

    Asking for the owner to come forward, Clifton police officers wrote on Facebook: "We would love to make you a cup of tea and have a little chat."

  10. City council proposes expansion

    Kit Sandeman

    Local Democracy Reporter

    A plan which would see Nottingham City Council's boundaries expand into nearby areas will now be consulted on.

    The Labour-run authority says the city boundaries are too tightly drawn meaning people who live just on the outskirts use its services - such as public transport - but do not contribute towards them in their council tax.

    Council leaders in Gedling and Broxtowe have objected to the plans and said their residents have no desire to become part of the city.

    Loxley House

    The leader of the city council, Jon Collins, has previously said the city had no desire to undergo a re-organisation.

    But a report for the city council said: "Nottingham has made it clear that if the county pursues the creation of a single tier of government within Nottinghamshire, this would cement the city's under bounded status.

    "Therefore the city has no alternative but to respond to the county's proposals with local government reorganisation proposals of our own."

    BBC Radio Derby

    A man has appeared in court charged with 22 counts of sexual assault against women and girls in Derby city centre.

    Csaba Kiss, who is Hungarian, spoke through an interpreter to confirm his name and address.

    The 35-year-old of Chad's Road, Derby, has been remanded into custody and will next appear at Derby Crown Court in December.

    BBC News

    A man has denied the attempted murder of a police officer who was hit by a car in Leicester last month.

    Yasin Adam, 25, of Bradbourne Road, also denied causing serious injury by dangerous driving at Leicester Crown Court.

    He has been remanded in custody and a trial date has been set for 25 March.

    The officer suffered head injuries when he attempted to stop a vehicle in Bradbourne Road in October.

  14. Rise in young people treated for mental health problems

    East Midlands Today

    The number of children being referred for specialist help for mental health problems has risen hugely across the East Midlands - with experts describing the situation as "a crisis".

    Figures obtained by East Midlands Today show the number of children seeking professional help has risen by 131% in the last six years in Nottinghamshire, and 50% in Leicestershire.

    South Derbyshire and Derby City saw 1,500 children referred for help last year - but they didn't provide previous figures to allow any comparison.

    Kate Majid

    They said the average waiting time for a child to have an initial assessment is more than eight weeks, in Nottinghamshire it's seven weeks and in Leicestershire, 32 days.

    But charities have told the BBC actually getting help can take much longer.

    Kate Majid, from Newark-based mental health charity, The Shaw Mind Foundation called it "an epidemic".

    She said: "We've seen a rise in young people who self-harm as a coping mechanism, a rise in generalised anxiety, a rise in depression in young people."
