(PS366) [225] Radio Nottingham News with Andy .
[226] [reading] Within the past hour has announced that a review is being launched into the future of three pits in Yorkshire with the intention of closing them all down.
[227] The mines involved are and near Doncaster and near Pontefract.
[228] The company says the prospects for all three are bleak.
[229] Richard reports. []
John (PS367) [230] 's northern director told a meeting of union officials that prospects for the three pits are bleak.
[231] More coal is being produced that can be sold, even the coal burn at power stations this year is likely to be seven million tons less than expected.
[232] Half that amount comes from Yorkshire pits.
[233] says two of the collieries, and are operating at a loss.
[234] The third is producing coal cheaply but most of it is being stockpiled because no one wants to buy it.
[235] A spokesman for the National Union of Mineworkers says it's what was expected.
[236] The country will soon be without a viable coal industry, he said, and will have to rely increasingly on imported energy supplies.
(PS366) [237] [reading] Contempt writs have been served against the Home Secretary and his predecessor Kenneth Clarke.
[238] It's understood the proceedings arise from their decision to deport the legal guardian of six Nottingham children who were prohibited from leaving the country.
[239] has been looking after her younger brothers and sisters since they were made wards of court when their parents were sent back to India.
[240] This report from Jeremy . []
(PS368) [241] The family came to Britain from Assam when their home was burnt down during Hindu Sikh riots nine years ago.
[242] But after losing a protracted fight for asylum both parents were deported.
[243] Now their eldest daughter has been told to leave too, but her supporters believe the decision is a clear breach of the children's wardship order.
[244] Lawyers are expected to argue that Michael Howard and Mr Clarke are both in contempt of the court's decision by pursuing her deportation.
[245] If found guilty they could be fined and ordered to pay court costs.
[246] It'd also allow Miss 's lawyers to seek an injunction preventing the deportation which would set a legal precedent.
[247] Her supporters believe it would force the government to reexamine their deportation procedures.
(PS366) [248] [reading] The jury in the James murder trial at Preston Crown Court has been read a statement by a train driver who described how two days after James's disappearance, he saw human remains on the railway line at Walton.
[249] Two eleven year old boys deny the abduction and murder of James and the attempted abduction of another boy.
[250] Adam reports. []
(PS369) [251] The prosecution showed the jury at Preston Crown Court several bags of stones, bricks and masonry found on the railway embankment where James's body was discovered.
[252] Some of the stones were said to be stained with blood.
[253] They were also shown an iron bar.
[254] The judge Mr Justice described it as heavy and as it was handed to members of the jury he warned them not to drop it.
[255] A quantity of clothing was also shown to the court.
[256] The courtroom fell silent as the exhibits were passed round.
[257] Earlier there was evidence from a train driver who said he had seen human remains lying by the track at Walton.
[258] The trial continues.
(PS366) [259] [reading] Solicitors acting for the Princess of Wales have demanded that secret photographs of her working out in a gym should be handed over and that she should be given details of how much money was made from them.
[260] This morning writs were issued in the High Court against the editors of the and and against the gym and its owner.
[261] Police in Jersey searching for the bodies of Nicholas and Elizabeth who were killed six years ago have found what appear to be human remains.
[262] Their two sons Mark and Roderick have been charged with their murders.
[263] This morning Mark appeared in court on the island and again denied the charge.
[264] He was remanded in custody for a week.
[265] A school near Eastwood's been closed today after staff complained that fumes in the building were causing chest and throat problems.
[266] Health officials and experts from are trying to trace the cause of the gases at Junior School.
[267] People began to feel ill yesterday afternoon and today the head Jean has told all two hundred and forty four pupils to stay at home.
[268] She says experts think the fumes are coming from the drains. []
(PS36A) [269] People are experiencing a smell which is not particularly distressing.
[270] But it seems to be getting into the the the throat and and the chest.
[271] Adults have noticed throat and chest difficulties there.
[272] We've more or less pinned it down to coming from the the drainage systems.
(PS366) [273] [reading] And police on Merseyside have arrested thirteen people today in connection with the sale of the drug crack.
[274] More than two hundred officers took part in the operation which centred on the Toxteth area of the city.
