  8. Council dismisses street lamp cancer claims

    East Midlands Today

    Derbyshire County Council says it has no plans to pause its roll-out of LED street lights after new research suggested a link between the lights and increased cancer rates.

    A university study claims outdoor blue-light, the kind found in LEDs, is "positively associated with prostate cancer and, to a lesser extent, breast cancer".

    Derbyshire County Council says EU and government-approved research has found no link between the two.

  11. Application to remove chimney from historic building

    Amy Orton

    Local Democracy Reporter

    A chimney will be removed from Leicester's Grade II-listed Trinity House, on De Montfort University's campus, if planning permission is granted.

    Trinity House chimney

    The university has applied to tear down the existing 9m-tall, fibreglass chimney at the property, which is situated in the Castle conservation area, and replace it with a 1.5m-tall boiler flue.

    The application says that damage to the current structure means it is unsafe.

    The fibreglass chimney is not an original part of the building. The former hospital building, in The Newarke, was converted into office space by De Montfort University 20 years ago.

  13. Cash appeal for crash victim's children hits target

    BBC News

    The family of a motorcyclist killed in a Grand Prix race in China have thanked supporters after an appeal reached its £20,000 target.

    Daniel Hegarty, 31, from Nottingham, died in the Macau Grand Prix in China in November but it later emerged his life insurance did not cover him outside Europe.

    In March, his brother, Joe, set up an appeal to create a £10,000 trust fund for each of Daniel's two children Evan, ten, and Flynn, three.

    A funding page has now that passed the target. Joe said: “It means so much to the family to know you are all behind these fantastic children, they deserve the start in life that their dad would have given them.”

  14. Family seek answers to asbestos death

    BBC Radio Nottingham

    The family of a man from Nottingham, who died from a type of cancer linked to exposure to asbestos, have instructed lawyers to investigate how he picked up the particles.

    Kevin Frankton died from mesothelioma last December at the age of 56.

    His death is currently being put down to being in service tunnels below the City Hospital when he accompanied his father to work in the 1960s and 70s.

    Mr Frankton's daughter Hannah has told the BBC: "We just want answers and to know that it's a closed book."

    The Trust, which now runs the hospital has declined to comment as it wasn't in existence at the time of the alleged exposure.

  15. 'Super council' plan branded 'ridiculous'

    Hugh Casswell

    Reporter BBC Radio Nottingham

    Talks to create an East Midlands Combined Authority are “simply ridiculous” the Nottinghamshire County Council Labour group leader said.

    Alan Rhodes said he's always been in favour of a devolution deal but that removal of district and borough councils would hurt front line services.

    Quote Message: Labour is completely opposed to the creation of a so-called 'super council' between the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. Geographically the area is far too big, and the idea of such remote governance would not only destroy the identity of our Nottinghamshire towns and villages but would also mean the end of local decision making." from Cllr Alan Rhodes Nottinghamshire County Council

    Leaders from the four county councils - which are all controlled by the Conservatives - have been meeting to discuss increasing co-operation in the East Midlands.
