Liberal Democrats based locally obtained the figures by a Freedom of Information request.

They show the PFI (private finance initiative) deal to fund the redevelopment of the hospital is £289.9m, with a monthly cost of £3.29m.

This is the biggest scandal our NHS has ever seen.

We knew the debt problem was bad but not quite on this scale.

Our hospital will have cost us £2.5 billion by the time we've paid the money back.

This for a hospital that only cost £298.9m to build.

It is a disgraceful waste of taxpayer's money.

All because Labour decided to use the private sector to fund the hospital.

It is especially galling when you find out there was an option to fund the rebuild through the public sector."

– Councillor Jason Zadrozny

An 18-year-old man was stabbed last night just yards from where a memorial event was being held to mark a decade since the murder of Nottingham teenager Danielle Beccan.

Danielle was fourteen when she was shot dead in St. Ann's in 2004 as she made her way home from Goose Fair.

Last night, Danielle's mother Paula Platt joined family and friends at St Ann's Valley Centre to mark the tenth anniversary of her death.

Ms Platt had apparently used the occasion to call for more to be done to tackle violent crime in Nottingham.

The stabbing happened at around 10.30pm last night, shortly after the memorial event had finished.

A teenager who fell from the balcony at Nottingham nightclub Rock City last night has sustained a severe head injury.

The 19-year-old fell from a balcony in the main room during the Crisis student night at the iconic live music venue.

Police officers and paramedics were called to the scene just before 12.40am, and the man was rushed to Queens Medical Centre with what police have described as 'non threatening injuries'.

"We would like to apologise to our customers this evening that we unfortunately needed to close the main room due to a customer falling from the balcony. Given the serious nature of the incident it was entirely necessary.

"Rock City staff were quick to react and police and ambulance staff were on site within four minutes.

"The individual was conscious whilst being treated, but clearly had sustained a severe head injury.

"He was rushed to QMC medical centre for emergency care. Having reviewed the CCTV footage it appears the individual involved fell by their own accord and so police are not currently looking for anyone.

Our hearts go out to the customer involved in the incident and we hope they recover in hospital as soon as possible.

For customers with late entry tickets who were unable to come in due to the incident we will be issuing refunds in due course."
