    East Midlands Today

    East Midlands Today has been out speaking to people shopping in Nottingham.

    Leicester Crown Court heard George, a nurse, hit a lorry which crashed into the central reservation between junctions 21a and 22 of the M1 in Leicestershire. It shed its load of beer barrels which caused an eight-car pile-up that closed the road for 18 hours.

    The court was also told she "calmly, cynically and callously" deleted a record of phone calls made during her journey.

    She will be sentenced on 15 July.

    Speaking of the M1, a Nottingham woman has been found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving after a crash on the motorway in November 2014.

    Christy George, 38, of Hucknall, had denied the charge - along with causing serious injury by dangerous driving and perverting the course of justice - but was convicted of all charges following a trial at Leicester Crown Court.

    This evening, showers will die away to leave a mainly dry night with variable cloud. Some mist patches may form in sheltered areas with winds light and variable.  

    After a dry start on Saturday, scattered showers will be followed by more heavy and thundery showers - with some sunny spells between the showers likely.

    That's going to make my drive on the M1 nice and pleasant tomorrow...

    Ian Campbell is a doctor at Park House, where they are now recruiting more staff.

    "The most alarming thing this week for me is watching the reaction of my staff who really put themselves out to accommodate all of these patients, who are very welcome, but it's now taking its toll on my staff and I'm starting to see them crumble under the pressure," he said.

    Nottingham-based firm, Experian, says it is looking at the implications of a UK exit from the EU.

    The company has offices in 37 countries and its revenue, outside of the EU accounts for almost 80% of its global business.

    A spokesman from the firm said: "While there is some uncertainty as to how and when Brexit will take effect, and what a future legislative environment may look like, we continue to run our business as usual."

    BBC News Online

    Nottinghamshire crop farmer Peter Gadd says Britain needs to hold "urgent discussions" about the future of the industry outside the EU.

    At the moment many farmers get subsidies from Europe which form a large part of their income, but after today the future for funding is now uncertain.

    Peter Gadd

    Mr Gadd said: "Without those payments a lot of businesses probably won't survive.

    "We need to re-establish some of our market place in Europe and outside Europe and trade deals and negotiations need to be re-established, but it's not going to happen overnight."

    Councillor Graham Chapman, deputy leader of Nottingham City Council, says he thinks there will be two to three years of turbulance and will "hit people in their pockets" in the short-term.

    He said European funding could dry up in a few years time and then they will be "fighting hard for the government to compensate".

    However, Mr Chapman said they must accept the democratic vote and now "move forward as a city and make the most of new challenges facing us".

  15. Your views: People need to 'think positively'

    BBC News Online

    East Midlands MEP Andrew Lewer has welcomed the referendum result and said while it will have been a shock to many, it was important to now "act carefully and reasonably to plan and negotiate our exit".

    Andrew Lewer

    He said the leave vote did not mean the UK was turning its back on Europe, "rather, we have chosen to take control of our own destiny and reject the ever-closer union that was the EU project".

    He said he believed the country could still maintain strong relationships across Europe to strengthen trade.
