Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:08.

A giant wind turbine blade is displayed in the centre of Hull

:00:09.:00:14.

for City of Culture - but is it art?

:00:15.:00:20.

It is interesting. Wow. Absolutely amazing.

:00:21.:00:28.

Hundreds of thousands of people come to see Made in Hull and events

:00:29.:00:31.

Hull was outperforming and more popular than the Golden Globes,

week. The ambulance trust that serves

:00:49.:00:50.

Lincolnshire says it's had its busiest start

:00:51.:00:53.

to January ever. After Saturday's FA Cup heroics,

:00:54.:00:55.

Lincoln City hope to face one of the country's top clubs

:00:56.:00:58.

in the next round. And with news of much colder weather

:00:59.:01:02.

under way later this week, join me for the weekend forecast.

:01:03.:01:11.

It started its journey from Alexandra Dock

:01:12.:01:13.

in Hull in the early hours of Sunday morning.

:01:14.:01:15.

By late in the afternoon, the wind turbine blade had

:01:16.:01:18.

completed its journey from the Siemens factory

:01:19.:01:26.

and was on display in Hull's Victoria Square.

:01:27.:01:28.

Today, shoppers and visitors to the city centre have been

:01:29.:01:31.

admiring the latest display which is part of City

:01:32.:01:33.

The blade is 75 metres or 250 feet long -

:01:34.:01:36.

that's around the length of seven double-decker buses.

:01:37.:01:39.

It weighs 28 tonnes, the equivalent of around

:01:40.:01:41.

It took almost four hours to move the huge blade just two miles

:01:42.:01:48.

through the streets of the city centre and in the process more

:01:49.:01:52.

than 50 items of street furniture such as signs and traffic lights had

:01:53.:01:57.

It's been described as a stunning work of art and will be in place

:01:58.:02:01.

Our arts correspondent Anne Marie Tasker is in

:02:02.:02:04.

What has been the reaction to the blade today?

:02:05.:02:13.

We have been here forever day and there have been hundreds of people

:02:14.:02:16.

jumping up to try to touch it, knocking on it, taking photos of it.

:02:17.:02:21.

Even some people milling around this evening having a close look. The

:02:22.:02:28.

blade coming into the centre of Hull has caused quite a commotion.

:02:29.:02:32.

It's only been in place for a day, but already Hull's new artwork

:02:33.:02:35.

No-one except the workers and visitors to the Siemens turbine

:02:36.:02:39.

blade factory in Hull have ever seen one this close up.

:02:40.:02:42.

I went, Wow, absolutely amazing. It is different. A lot of sculptors

:02:43.:02:57.

are out there and it is definitely out there. It is about culture,

:02:58.:03:00.

isn't it? Leaving just

:03:01.:03:07.

before 2am, getting it from the factory at Hull's docks

:03:08.:03:08.

to display took more than 20 hours, with lamp posts and traffic lights

:03:09.:03:11.

taken down as it squeezed And as it reached the city centre,

:03:12.:03:14.

the artist who thought up the idea said it stopped being a blade

:03:15.:03:18.

and started being a sculpture - as carefully handmade

:03:19.:03:21.

as any art work. Talking about what material and

:03:22.:03:32.

objects have a kind of symbolic or metaphorical relation to the idea of

:03:33.:03:40.

Hull as a city. One of the things that is made is clearly a

:03:41.:03:43.

spectacular, handmade, astonishing form.

:03:44.:03:45.

Once in the square, it took two huge cranes and more than four hours

:03:46.:03:49.

The whole project's been paid for by Siemens,

:03:50.:03:52.

though they won't disclose exactly how much it's cost.

:03:53.:03:57.

I can tell you it is hundreds of thousands of pounds in terms of

:03:58.:04:02.

labour and material costs. Yesterday, we had 70 people involved

:04:03.:04:05.

in the logistics. We're giving something back to the city. We

:04:06.:04:10.

always wanted to be a good resident in the city and work with it and

:04:11.:04:11.

this is the way we're giving back. Dominating the square

:04:12.:04:14.

for the next ten weeks, the blade is part of a series

:04:15.:04:16.

of sculptures for City of Culture called Look Up,

:04:17.:04:18.

and it's certainly got People have been asking, is this

:04:19.:04:28.

art? The artist told me he thinks it is a beautiful, handmade sculpture

:04:29.:04:33.

and that by taking it out the fact and bringing it here, he hopes to

:04:34.:04:37.

get people asking questions about Hull's place in the world and its

:04:38.:04:42.

future. It is also part of a long artistic tradition. Although

:04:43.:04:46.

hundreds of Siemens workers made this, Michelangelo had dozens of

:04:47.:04:48.

helpers to make the Sistine Chapel ceiling. I suppose the question will

:04:49.:04:58.

rage about this place next ten weeks that it is here. You can have your

:04:59.:05:03.

say on this and whether it is art with the contact details coming up

:05:04.:05:04.

in just a few minutes. This latest installation comes

:05:05.:05:06.

at the end of a week which has seen more than 300,000 visits

:05:07.:05:10.

to the city. Hull 2017 began with

:05:11.:05:15.

spectacular fireworks, light displays and theatrical

:05:16.:05:16.

performances - all of which combined to bring the city to the attention

:05:17.:05:19.

of people all over the world. Laura Foster's been looking

:05:20.:05:22.

at the global impact This map gives you a sense of just

:05:23.:05:24.

how often Hull has been talked about around the world over

:05:25.:05:31.

the past week. People's perceptions of the city are

:05:32.:05:41.

changing. The Norwegian people, when I mention, Hull, they say very

:05:42.:05:45.

positive things. They know the colour of the football team shot,

:05:46.:05:49.

they know what is famous for its fishing as well. In Norway, people

:05:50.:05:54.

been very positive about Hull being the City of Culture. It is because

:05:55.:06:01.

of events like Made In Hull, Which Made Audiences Spellbound. People

:06:02.:06:10.

who have come to visit say it has been wonderful for the city.

:06:11.:06:16.

Gobsmacked. I really am. Everyone is excited about what is going on and

:06:17.:06:19.

checking the website to see what is up next. Gully-mac you can feel that

:06:20.:06:20.

bus. -- buzz. At this fish and chip restaurant,

:06:21.:06:34.

staff have been working so hard, His business is normally closed

:06:35.:06:37.

in the evenings but then he decided to open when he saw many people

:06:38.:06:42.

were coming in to the city centre. Hundreds, probably thousands. He

:06:43.:06:48.

kept going until we got rid of the queue. Do you wish you had open?

:06:49.:06:49.

Yes, I do! 342,000 people came to Hull

:06:50.:06:54.

during its first week That sounds like a lot,

:06:55.:06:56.

but how does it compare to other Well, Hull 2017 is so far proving

:06:57.:07:00.

more popular than the UK's The National Gallery in London

:07:01.:07:04.

attracts on average around But it's also attracting more

:07:05.:07:07.

visitors than the UK's most-visited tourist attraction,

:07:08.:07:15.

the British Museum, which sees an average of 123,000 visitors come

:07:16.:07:17.

through its doors every week. Hull was outperforming and more

:07:18.:07:28.

popular than the Golden Globes, Donald Trump and Meryl Streep and

:07:29.:07:33.

social media this weekend. That is seismic. If Hull continues at this

:07:34.:07:37.

pace, we will see a very different Hull by the end of the year.

:07:38.:07:40.

Earlier, I went to Queen Victoria Square and met with Martin Green,

:07:41.:07:46.

It has been the most extraordinary week of my life.

:07:47.:07:54.

Of course they make work they think people want to see.

:07:55.:08:04.

But there is a reaction and then there is a reaction.

:08:05.:08:07.

Made in Hull, and not just good reaction, but a phenomenon.

:08:08.:08:09.

What it was about was because the audiences

:08:10.:08:15.

are from this place and the work was of this place.

:08:16.:08:18.

So you get this alchemy. But forget all that.

:08:19.:08:20.

Did you expect that number of people?

:08:21.:08:21.

Never. We had high hopes, of course we did.

:08:22.:08:25.

This has certainly caused some controversy today.

:08:26.:08:29.

Is it art? I think it is.

:08:30.:08:31.

Because it is a beautiful, handmade object that involves great

:08:32.:08:37.

creativity and ingenuity, and by putting it into this space,

:08:38.:08:39.

Tim, it is not a sculpture, it is a 75-metre-long wind turbine.

:08:40.:08:49.

Mike, I am trying to understand how this turbine blade

:08:50.:08:52.

And that is the brilliant thing. What are we doing here?

:08:53.:08:56.

We're having a conversation about, what is art?

:08:57.:08:58.

For every person that thinks it is, someone will think it is not.

:08:59.:09:01.

If it had been made by machine rather than the men and women

:09:02.:09:04.

I think that would take the edge off it.

:09:05.:09:07.

I still think it is a beautiful object but I think the fact

:09:08.:09:11.

that it is handmade, for me, really makes it.

:09:12.:09:13.

And also in this space and what it means for the city

:09:14.:09:16.

Well, they are obviously talking, but will it get

:09:17.:09:20.

The same numbers? Well, time will tell.

:09:21.:09:24.

You make something and you see how people respond to it.

:09:25.:09:26.

I am really pleased people are having this debate.

:09:27.:09:29.

How do you keep the momentum going? Well, there is much more to come.

:09:30.:09:37.

We are standing by the art gallery which reopens

:09:38.:09:39.

At the beginning of February, our new contemporary art gallery

:09:40.:09:45.

So there are things happening every week.

:09:46.:09:49.

They are tapping the wind turbine blade.

:09:50.:09:50.

You better go down there and frighten them off, I think!

:09:51.:09:53.

Martin Green talking to me around an hour ago. If you have already been

:09:54.:10:01.

to visit the blade, what do you think? Is it a stunning piece of art

:10:02.:10:05.

do you have a different view? Tunis Air to get in touch. Is it in the

:10:06.:10:11.

right place and do you see it as a piece of art? Maybe you made that

:10:12.:10:14.

piece of art if you work at Siemens and EU actually like it. Your views

:10:15.:10:21.

on the blade. Is it art? It herself got people talking. -- and you

:10:22.:10:24.

actually like it. Like it, love it or maybe you do not

:10:25.:10:35.

think it is right. Look forward to hearing from you. We will have some

:10:36.:10:37.

reactions before we finish at seven. A jury has heard how a husband

:10:38.:10:40.

and wife accused of being connected with smuggling cocaine into Hull

:10:41.:10:43.

gave different details about where money in their bank

:10:44.:10:46.

accounts came from. Former P ship steward Edward Tron

:10:47.:10:48.

told investigators he'd made ?100,000 from gambling -

:10:49.:10:51.

a figure rejected by his wife Susan The pair are on trial alongside cook

:10:52.:10:56.

Mark Quilliam at Hull Crown Court. Crispin Rolfe has

:10:57.:11:03.

sent us this report. The court has heard

:11:04.:11:09.

that over four years, Edward and Susan Tron deposited

:11:10.:11:11.

?138,000 into their bank account, money which prosecutors say came

:11:12.:11:16.

from illegally importing class A drugs into the country

:11:17.:11:21.

via the Pride of Hull P Well, in statements to officers,

:11:22.:11:26.

both gave accounts of their versions Susan Tron said it came

:11:27.:11:30.

from her husband, her inheritance But she did not back up Mr Tron's

:11:31.:11:35.

assertion that he had made The couple's statements also

:11:36.:11:42.

differed on how they had come a spare high visibility jacket,

:11:43.:11:54.

which the prosecution alleged was to be used

:11:55.:11:56.

for future drug smuggling. Mrs Tron said she had bought them

:11:57.:11:59.

as Christmas presents. Mr Tron told officers, however,

:12:00.:12:01.

that he had bought them as gifts Tomorrow, though, 51-year-old

:12:02.:12:04.

Edward Tron will speak for the first time to the court in person

:12:05.:12:07.

as the case for the defence begins. He along with Mark Quilliam

:12:08.:12:10.

is charged with conspiring to import His wife, Susan, is charged

:12:11.:12:13.

with money laundering. All three deny those charges

:12:14.:12:16.

and the case continues. The Humberside Police Federation

:12:17.:12:24.

is calling for all front line It's being claimed the use of

:12:25.:12:28.

Tasers, which use an electric shock to instantly immobilise an offender,

:12:29.:12:37.

is less harmful than using a baton. The Police Federation also claims

:12:38.:12:40.

they help keep police officers safe. From violent domestic incidents

:12:41.:12:44.

in the home to people on the street carrying weapons,

:12:45.:12:46.

they are a real useful deterrent. We go out to protect

:12:47.:12:48.

the public every day, 24/7, and so I am calling

:12:49.:12:50.

for the introduction of Tasers to all front line officers

:12:51.:12:53.

to adequately protect themselves Hospital bosses in Hull say they're

:12:54.:12:55.

having to postpone dozens of operations and clinics

:12:56.:13:07.

because they've been They've seen a big increase

:13:08.:13:09.

in the number of seriously ill people being admitted

:13:10.:13:15.

through accident and emergency. And the East Midlands Ambulance has

:13:16.:13:20.

had its busiest ever New Year. Our health correspondent

:13:21.:13:25.

Vicky Johnson reports. Ambulances queueing up outside Hull

:13:26.:13:35.

Royal and for me, just one sign of a very busy hospital. -- Royal

:13:36.:13:39.

Infirmary. Managers admit they are struggling to find beds for

:13:40.:13:44.

patients. Normally, we would have spare capacity, but by the end of

:13:45.:13:48.

last week, we were up to 95% fill. It is not leave lots of room for

:13:49.:13:55.

patients to come in. We have to get patients out that safely discharged

:13:56.:13:58.

so we can manage patients that really need to be here. Doctors say

:13:59.:14:02.

that the very high number of very ill patients being emitted just

:14:03.:14:05.

could not have been predicted and so they have had to take drastic

:14:06.:14:09.

action. Management here say they have had to postpone at least 60

:14:10.:14:13.

operations last week and they are also looking to delay some

:14:14.:14:16.

outpatient appointments and procedures or consultants can be

:14:17.:14:19.

kept free to deal with patients who need urgent attention. Lincoln

:14:20.:14:25.

County Hospital has also been very busy. Union leaders say that this

:14:26.:14:30.

has put members under serious pressure. We asked our members

:14:31.:14:34.

today, what did they think would help the situation? Do we need more

:14:35.:14:40.

nurses? The response we got was, we need more of everything within the

:14:41.:14:46.

NHS. This afternoon, the Health Secretary told the House of Commons

:14:47.:14:49.

work is already under way to dissuade people from using A

:14:50.:14:54.

unnecessarily. NHS England will continue to explore ways to ensure

:14:55.:14:58.

that at least some of the patients who do not need to be in our A

:14:59.:15:03.

can be given good alternative options. With temperatures forecast

:15:04.:15:09.

to top this week, it is unlikely they will be any easing of pressure

:15:10.:15:12.

on the NHS as people fall victim to breathing problems and flew. -- flu.

:15:13.:15:20.

Hospital managers in guilty that the shortage of doctors let to the

:15:21.:15:25.

closure of the town's minor injuries unit over the weekend. It was forced

:15:26.:15:28.

to close for almost eight hours on Saturday. Officials say that they

:15:29.:15:32.

believe it is the first time that they have ever had to close.

:15:33.:15:37.

You for your company this Monday night on BBC One.

:15:38.:15:40.

They scared the life out of a Championship side,

:15:41.:15:44.

now Lincoln City wait to see who they could meet in the fourth

:15:45.:15:47.

The dream would be drawing Man United at Old Trafford. Or

:15:48.:15:58.

Liverpool. If you go somewhere to -- like Manchester United, you'll make

:15:59.:16:09.

many thousands of pounds. Tonight's photograph was taken by

:16:10.:16:16.

Jim. Thank you for that. We will have a picture at the same time

:16:17.:16:22.

tomorrow. Good evening, young man. Jim says the funny tweet this week.

:16:23.:16:29.

He said, I saw the picture of Peter as 007. Zero we his favourite Bond

:16:30.:16:40.

film is Old Finger. No-one is laughing!

:16:41.:16:48.

Less a look at the headline for the next 24 hours. The rest of the week,

:16:49.:16:52.

actually. It is a bit of a treat tonight. It is coming or called on

:16:53.:16:57.

Thursday and Friday. Lots of sunshine in the north and north-west

:16:58.:17:01.

and any showers will be sleet and show. -- snow. The isobars here,

:17:02.:17:09.

producing an Arctic blast from the north-west. We will see the first

:17:10.:17:15.

snow showers of the season. If you like the cold stuff, it will not

:17:16.:17:18.

last long because the westerlies will come back by the end of the

:17:19.:17:24.

weekend and into next week. That is the active cold front that brought

:17:25.:17:27.

the rain today. It has cleared away and we had brighter skies for a time

:17:28.:17:34.

before the sunset. This evening and overnight, it is a stroke clear with

:17:35.:17:38.

one or two showers. The main theme of the weather is a strength of the

:17:39.:17:42.

wind. Strong gusty westerly winds, temperatures down to three Celsius.

:17:43.:17:49.

37 Fahrenheit. The sun rises tomorrow at around 8:15 a.m.. Here

:17:50.:17:56.

are your times of high water. It is a windy day tomorrow but mostly dry

:17:57.:18:00.

and bright. Sunny spells through the course of the morning. It might well

:18:01.:18:06.

cloud over from the West. Clouds big enough to produce pure delight

:18:07.:18:08.

shower and spot of rain. Essentially, we are looking at a dry

:18:09.:18:14.

day. Let's look at the top temperatures, coming in at around

:18:15.:18:18.

eight or nine Celsius. That is the mid-40s in Fahrenheit with a strong

:18:19.:18:22.

and gusty westerly wind. Not so bad on Wednesday but the cold air on

:18:23.:18:26.

Thursday and Friday. Look at the drop in temperatures with sunshine.

:18:27.:18:30.

Plenty of sunshine and a scattering of sleet and snow showers. Peter,

:18:31.:18:35.

that is the forecast. See you tomorrow.

:18:36.:18:42.

It's been part of Scarborough's coastline for almost 100 years,

:18:43.:18:45.

but today it's been decided that the town's Futurist Theatre

:18:46.:18:47.

It comes despite strong protests in the town.

:18:48.:18:52.

Our reporter Phil Bodmer is in Scarborough tonight.

:18:53.:18:54.

Well, for 96 years, the Futurist Theatre in Scarborough has laid

:18:55.:19:10.

hosted a good and great of the showbiz world, including Shirley

:19:11.:19:13.

Bassey, the Beatles and even Ken Dodd. Today, councils voted narrowly

:19:14.:19:20.

to demolish this famous old theatre and stabilise the cliff behind it,

:19:21.:19:25.

cleaning the site potentially for a new development. -- clearing. The

:19:26.:19:30.

days of the theatre seem numbered. The Conservative Party run council

:19:31.:19:36.

here say it is not sustainable as a theatrical venue going forward. This

:19:37.:19:39.

was the reaction today after the historic decision. It has gone on

:19:40.:19:43.

for 20 years. People have come forward with ideas that have not

:19:44.:19:46.

backed up with a proper business case to show that after any

:19:47.:19:53.

refurbishment had been done and any reconfiguration carried out that it

:19:54.:19:58.

would provide a sustainable theatre. Campaigners hoping to retain the

:19:59.:20:02.

theatre staged a march today through the railway station over to the town

:20:03.:20:08.

hall, hoping to persuade councillors for more time to debate the issue

:20:09.:20:12.

and look at possible alternatives. In the end, they were unsuccessful

:20:13.:20:16.

in their quest to retain the theatre. We are not likely to see

:20:17.:20:20.

any action until at least after the summer but there is a distinct

:20:21.:20:26.

possibility we could see bulldozers on-site at the Futurist Theatre by

:20:27.:20:29.

the autumn of 2017. And he knows what will take its place? -- who

:20:30.:20:35.

knows. Always sad to see the loss of a

:20:36.:20:38.

theatre. The Futurist Theatre in Scarborough.

Drivers are being warned about disruption in Hull

:20:40.:20:41.

past ten. The subject of Tasers one you might want to comment on at half

:25:17.:25:24.

past ten, as usual. When I was talking to Mark green, it

:25:25.:25:27.

was an amazing sight to look at the blade. 250 feet long. If you haven't

:25:28.:25:34.

been into town yet, you must come and have a look at the centre of

Hull. It is amazing. You wonder, like I did, how they can bolt that

laid on to the middle bit. We must do a film about it some time, and

:25:43.:25:47.

that is the thing that fascinates us all, when you see the size of it.

:25:48.:25:51.

But is it art? That is what I asked earlier. It is interesting, watching

:25:52.:25:56.

the number of people tapping the blade and trying to make a sound

:25:57.:26:01.

underneath it. Is it art or not? Henry is an engineer and says, it is

:26:02.:26:07.

not. It is an engineering artefact carefully and intensely designed to

:26:08.:26:12.

meet the specification. Forget art and celebrate engineering

achievement and celebrate the fact that Hull can make it. Interesting

quite a lot of street movement to get the blade into the city centre.

:26:45.:26:49.

This says, what a load of twaddle. It is a wind turbines blade that you

:26:50.:26:54.

can see all over the country. Sue says, as an outsider, I was looking

forward to visiting Victoria Square with the new statue, paving and
