Hello, good evening. The headlines from as this Monday night. Cancelled

:00:08.:00:16.

operations as our hospitals buckle under the winter pressures. We are

:00:17.:00:20.

up to 99% for which doesn't leave a lot of room for patients to come in.

:00:21.:00:25.

Tonight the call for all Humberside Police officers to be given Taser

:00:26.:00:30.

is, but campaigners say it is not right. I believe all front-line

:00:31.:00:34.

officers should have access to a Taser. This represents a fundamental

:00:35.:00:38.

change in the way that we are policed. And be unusable wintry

:00:39.:00:42.

spell of weather Jamie later with the updated forecast. -- join me

:00:43.:00:49.

later with the updated forecast. Dozens of operations have been

:00:50.:00:51.

postponed and hundreds of appointments cancelled

:00:52.:00:53.

after hospital bosses in Hull admitted they are

:00:54.:01:01.

running out of beds. Fewer than five emergency beds

:01:02.:01:03.

are unfilled in the whole of East Yorkshire where there's been

:01:04.:01:06.

a big rise in the number of very ill people are being

:01:07.:01:09.

admitted to hospital. It's a similar story in Lincolnshire

:01:10.:01:11.

where the ambulance service says When a new 24 bed ward was lifted

:01:12.:01:13.

into place at Hull Royal Infirmary it was promised extra beds

:01:14.:01:20.

would help to ease winter pressures. But, nearly two years since it

:01:21.:01:23.

opened, ambulances queue outside a hospital which continues

:01:24.:01:25.

to struggle to find This year we have had to cancel some

:01:26.:01:28.

operations and that's regretable. The doctors, nurses and other staff

:01:29.:01:37.

in the hospital have been working really,

:01:38.:01:41.

really hard to try and keep things going, but we have to look

:01:42.:01:43.

after our acutely unwell patients There are 416 emergency beds at Hull

:01:44.:01:46.

Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill. Almost all of them are

:01:47.:01:51.

being used right now. There are another 382 beds used

:01:52.:01:53.

by patients recovering from surgery, but 90% of these

:01:54.:01:59.

are full and that's why hospital bosses have had to postpone routine

:02:00.:02:05.

operations to free up beds and consultants for patients that

:02:06.:02:07.

need emergency care. And there's pressure too

:02:08.:02:11.

on services in Lincolnshire. The East Midlands Ambulance Service

:02:12.:02:14.

says it's been its busiest ever New Year and Union leaders say

:02:15.:02:19.

hospital staff are struggling. We did ask our members today what do

:02:20.:02:22.

they think would help the situation and do we need more nurses,

:02:23.:02:27.

and the response we got was we need more of everything,

:02:28.:02:32.

we need more of everything But this afternoon the Health

:02:33.:02:35.

Secretary told the House of Commons work is already underway to dissuade

:02:36.:02:42.

people from using A unnecessarily. NHS England and NHS Improvement

:02:43.:02:45.

will continue to explore ways to ensure that at least some

:02:46.:02:49.

of the patients who do not need to be in our A can be given good

:02:50.:02:53.

alternative options. And for the second time,

:02:54.:02:57.

one Lincolnshire MP has called for a radical change to the way

:02:58.:02:59.

the NHS is funded. I just wonder whether we don't need

:03:00.:03:04.

to start an honest discussion with the people about how

:03:05.:03:07.

we are going to devote more resources to health in this country,

:03:08.:03:09.

perhaps through social insurance models or even, God forbid,

:03:10.:03:12.

and I know people would agree with this, charging people who don't

:03:13.:03:15.

turn up for appointments. The Government says "distressed"

:03:16.:03:22.

health trusts will be able to take In busy hospitals like Hull such

:03:23.:03:24.

action has already been taken. Jill is outside the Hull

:03:25.:03:33.

Royal Infirmary tonight. What are health bosses

:03:34.:03:36.

telling people tonight? The trust which runs this hospital

:03:37.:03:50.

says it had to cancel around 60 operations last week in order to

:03:51.:03:54.

give its staff some breathing room so that they could cope with an

:03:55.:03:58.

influx of acutely unwell patients, and that decision, the trust said,

:03:59.:04:03.

was regrettable but it's only made in scenarios where it's deemed safe

:04:04.:04:07.

to postpone an operation. The message from the health trust here

:04:08.:04:11.

and echoed nationally by NHS England is that people who do become unwell

:04:12.:04:15.

should think very carefully about where they access health care and

:04:16.:04:23.

that people who come to hospitals like the one behind me and I'll

:04:24.:04:25.

should only be here if their condition is serious or

:04:26.:04:26.

life-threatening. The Humberside Police Federation

:04:27.:04:29.

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

:04:30.:04:31.

of Tasers, which use an electric shock to instantly immobilise

:04:32.:04:35.

an offender, is less The union which represents

:04:36.:04:37.

officers also claims they help keep their members

:04:38.:04:40.

and the public safe. A whole range of incidents,

:04:41.:04:44.

so from violent domestic incidents in the home to people out

:04:45.:04:47.

on the streets carrying weapons. We go out to protect

:04:48.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:05:02.

of Tasers to all front-line officers to adequately protect themselves

:05:03.:05:05.

and members of the public from dealing with these

:05:06.:05:07.

sort of incidents. That what was the chairman of the

:05:08.:05:16.

Humberside Police Federation. Iain Gould is a solicitor

:05:17.:05:20.

who specialises in claims Tonight I asked him

:05:21.:05:22.

whether he agreed with the Humberside Police Federation

:05:23.:05:25.

that all officers should No, I think this represents

:05:26.:05:27.

a fundamental change in the way I don't think it's necessary

:05:28.:05:31.

and I think what we should be looking at is more officers

:05:32.:05:35.

on the beat rather than simply Why are you against something

:05:36.:05:38.

that the police themselves, themselves they will keep the public

:05:39.:05:41.

safe and keep the police safe. Well, I don't necessarily

:05:42.:05:45.

agree with that. I think that in my experience

:05:46.:05:48.

when an officer has a Taser gun it's I think that when an officer

:05:49.:05:53.

confront a situation he should be using first and foremost his

:05:54.:05:59.

best efforts to disarm If somebody is not doing anything

:06:00.:06:03.

wrong to prompt it than a Taser Maybe not, but unfortunately my

:06:04.:06:09.

experience there are too many times when a Taser has been deployed

:06:10.:06:20.

in inappropriate circumstances, causing unnecessary pain

:06:21.:06:26.

and discomfort to the individual concerned and I think in that

:06:27.:06:28.

situation that is only going to damage the reputation

:06:29.:06:31.

of the police and the confidence In many cases they are pulled

:06:32.:06:33.

and they are there as a deterrent, not necessarily fired,

:06:34.:06:38.

but as soon as they brought out You could argue that giving each

:06:39.:06:41.

and every officer a gun I just don't think it's necessary

:06:42.:06:45.

in this day and age. As I say, I think we live in a less

:06:46.:06:51.

violent society and our police force Don't say about more police officers

:06:52.:06:55.

because I except that you said that, Well, I don't have a problem

:06:56.:07:00.

with certain officers being deployed with Taser guns but they should be

:07:01.:07:07.

deployed to specially trained officers and in my experience

:07:08.:07:10.

there are too many officers out there who lack the proper

:07:11.:07:13.

temperament to carry such a weapon. That a criticism of

:07:14.:07:19.

the police, isn't it? It is a criticism of the police

:07:20.:07:21.

and it is a criticism of the training of those officers

:07:22.:07:24.

because unfortunately in my experience there are too many

:07:25.:07:26.

officers who seem to feel the use of the Taser is no different

:07:27.:07:29.

from laying your hands on an individual when in reality

:07:30.:07:31.

they are a dangerous weapon and that's recognised by the police

:07:32.:07:36.

and the IPCC themselves. Hull is the most popular

:07:37.:07:40.

tourist attraction in 340,000 people have visited Hull

:07:41.:07:50.

in the first week of it becoming City of Culture to see things

:07:51.:07:56.

like the giant wind turbine And the city and it's

:07:57.:07:59.

attractions are being talked The Norwegian people,

:08:00.:08:06.

when I mention Hull, they say very positive

:08:07.:08:10.

things about it. They know the colour of the T-shirts

:08:11.:08:13.

for the football team and they know about it being famous

:08:14.:08:16.

for its fishing as well, so in Norway people have been

:08:17.:08:19.

very positive about Hull One of Hull's biggest

:08:20.:08:23.

tourist attractions The Deep is looking for someone

:08:24.:08:27.

to look after the day-to-day Whoever takes over will

:08:28.:08:32.

get a ?100,000 salary. Hull City will play Fulham

:08:33.:08:42.

in the next round of the FA Cup. While Lincoln City could also

:08:43.:08:45.

face a Championship side The Imps got Brighton

:08:46.:08:48.

at Sincil Bank in tonight's draw. They still have to beat Ipswich

:08:49.:08:52.

though to get there after the two Obviously, Brighton,

:08:53.:08:55.

top of the championship. obviously we've got to get past

:08:56.:09:05.

a very good Ipswich team so we're not getting too carried away

:09:06.:09:11.

here but we enjoyed the draw. I think we'll be looking

:09:12.:09:14.

forward to playing Brighton if we can beat Ipswich,

:09:15.:09:16.

I think we'll fancy We were hoping for

:09:17.:09:18.

Manchester United or It's all right, could be

:09:19.:09:24.

better, we could have got an Arsenal or Man U way, that

:09:25.:09:27.

would've been nice, but, you know, we're just enjoy the

:09:28.:09:30.

ride at the minute. Let us get the forecast for Tuesday

:09:31.:09:41.

with the details from Paul. Good evening. A cold snap on the way

:09:42.:09:47.

the second half of the week. It will be windy with snow showers towards

:09:48.:09:51.

Thursday and Friday for some of us. This is what is happening. A broad

:09:52.:09:55.

westerly at the moment with the airflow coming down from the north

:09:56.:09:59.

or the north-west. It brings a scattering of sleet and snow showers

:10:00.:10:04.

are quite a few areas. It is mostly fine and we will have the odd shower

:10:05.:10:09.

coming in from the West. We will have the lowest temperatures tonight

:10:10.:10:13.

or three or 4 degrees. Tomorrow it is a fairly dry and bright morning

:10:14.:10:18.

with sunshine around and I suspect cloud may increase later in the day.

:10:19.:10:22.

It could be thick enough to produce some spots of rain but for most of

:10:23.:10:28.

us it is fine and we will have the top temperatures of eight. The main

:10:29.:10:33.

feature of the weather is the very strong west or south west wind.

:10:34.:10:37.

Wednesday doesn't look too bad but it is much colder on Thursday and

:10:38.:10:41.

Friday with a cold wind and sunshine and scattered sleet and snow

:10:42.:10:45.

showers. When you wake in the morning don't forget the BBC local

:10:46.:10:49.

radio stations are on the air. Don't forget Park Street Bridge in

:10:50.:10:54.

Hull is closed to traffic for the next three months which could cause

:10:55.:11:01.

you some problems in the morning. Radio Humberside will have all

:11:02.:11:02.

precipitation we get will be of a wintry nation and Thursday is one we

:11:03.:11:05.

have to watch out for. The wintry nation and Thursday is one we

:11:06.:11:07.

have to watch out for. The weekend outlook, it stays chilly with a

:11:08.:11:11.

northerly wind and possibly frosty nights. The national weather

:11:12.:11:12.

forecast now. Wet and windy weather across the

:11:13.:11:24.

western side of Scotland. Blood-pressure is in charge of the

:11:25.:11:28.

weather, lots of isobars and it remains windy overnight across

:11:29.:11:31.

northern and western parts of Scotland. It will blow a gale here.

:11:32.:11:35.

That is the north-west quadrant of the UK, that is where we expect most

:11:36.:11:39.

of the overnight rain. Within north-westerly breeze it is chilly

:11:40.:11:43.

and by the end of the night it is three or 4 degrees in major towns

:11:44.:11:47.

and cities, rural spots lower than that, and a risk of icy patches in

:11:48.:11:52.

some places. Across the eastern side of Scotland not much rain, more on

:11:53.:11:56.

the west, still breezy but not as windy as it is now. Northern Ireland

:11:57.:12:01.

will be fairly cloudy with some rain in the morning, not much in northern

:12:02.:12:06.

England but some in the Pennines, but for the it will be

:12:07.:12:08.
