Inside Out East Midlands - 02/11/2009


It is in November we remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. But for those lucky enough to return from conflict, the battle has often just begun. After years in the military, some can't cope with life on civvy street; others end up living rough on it. Marie Ashby follows one veteran's extraordinary mission to give returning soldiers the fighting chance they deserve. Carol Thatcher retraces her mother's footsteps in Margaret's home town of Grantham. The film includes rare archive pictures thought to be Maggie visiting Belton House as a school child. Kylie Pentelow cycles through the East Midlands to ask how safe it's been made for cyclists.
