  8. BBC Trust rejects Sports Direct complaint

    BBC News Online

    The BBC Trust has rejected a complaint from Sports Direct over a BBC Inside Out East Midlands programme about the firm's working practices at its warehouse in Shirebrook.

    The company complained there was no proper basis for the programme's inclusion of a reference to a member of staff giving birth in the warehouse toilets - and that the BBC misled the audience by implying that it was an example of someone turning up to work when they were unfit to do so.

    But the Trust said the reference was "factually accurate" and "went no further than the known facts".

    Danny Brennan, from the trust, said there could also be possible extensions out to Attenborough and Holme Pierrepont.

    Now here's a novel idea...

    The Canal and River Trust wants to bring water buses to Nottingham.


    The idea is they'll link Beeston to Meadow Lane along the Nottingham-Beeston Canal.

    A study by Nottingham Trent University's business school reckons it would be commercially viable to have four boats a day running in both directions at 90-minute intervals.
