  5. Man with terminal cancer fighting to die at home

    Local Democracy Reporter

    An army veteran with terminal cancer who wants to die at home has been stuck in hospital for three weeks because care can't be arranged for his discharge.

    The 88-year-old man, who does not want to be named, was diagnosed with colon cancer last year. As the result of a blocked colon the grandfather had an operation in September 2018 where surgeons fitted a stoma bag.

    During the operation it became clear that the cancer had spread to his bowel, stomach and duodenum. He was told he had weeks or months to live.

    His son, who is trying to help arrange care at home, said: "I dread the call that dad has died in hospital.

    "Dad doesn't want to end his life being left to rot on a post surgical ward, his wish is to die at home in comfortable surroundings."

    Delays in making arrangements for carers to visit the man when he returns home means he cannot be discharged from Leicester General Hospital - despite being deemed medically fit.

    Discussions have continued between the man's son, ward staff and social services but no care could be arranged and 15 companies have declined to provide the medically complex care he needs.

    Quote Message: We are sincerely sorry that the discharge process for the man has not been straightforward and we understand how frustrating this can be. If a patient has complex medical needs, it is not always possible for care to be provided at home." from Gill Staton Leicester's Hospitals

  6. Vote on huge city building could have been closer

    Chris Doidge

    BBC Radio Derby, political reporter

    A member of Derby's planning committee, who was absent when his colleagues voted in favour of The Landmark building last week, has said he would have rejected it.

    This would have made the vote 7-6 rather than 7-5 and shows how close it could be when the final decision is made next month.

    Current plans are for a block of 202 apartments with the tallest part of the building being 17 storeys high.

    UKIP's John Evans says he'll "definitely" be voting against it. He said high-rise blocks were tried in the 1960s and tend to turn into ghettos.

    BBC News Online

    An Ilkeston man and his two pet dogs who spent eight years on and off the streets now have a new home thanks to a night shelter.

    Melvyn Beard said the town's winter shelter, which opened on Christmas day, "probably saved [his] life" after it put him in touch with a charity that helped him find and move in to a flat.

    He said: "I never expected anything like this.

    "If it wasn't for the shelter me and my two little dogs (Poppy and Buddy) would still be walking the streets."

  14. Campaigners call for disabled pass reversal

    BBC Radio Nottingham

    A petition of more than 1,100 signatures has been handed in to Nottingham City Council calling for the reversal of a cut to travel passes for disabled people.

    The changes to the Disabled Persons Mobility Pass came into effect last September and prevented card holders from travelling for free on buses and trams in the city between 23:00 and 09:30.

    Gary Freeman

    The council has blamed a reduction in government funding and said the policy change will save £100,000.

    But campaigners have criticised the plans as the council spends £50m on developing the Broadmarsh shopping centre and asked for the pass to be funded for 24 hours a day.

    Gary Freeman said: "We think it's a terrible decision to attack disabled people who need that pass to go to medical appointments before 09:30 or maybe working late shifts or night shifts."
