people over the age of 65 are getting married these days.

:00:00.:00:00.

The headlines tonight: After hospitals lose more

:00:00.:00:10.

than a hundred patient referrals, it's revealed health bosses tried

:00:11.:00:12.

They had been aware of some of these problems since June 2016 and clearly

:00:13.:00:31.

that is too long a period of time or patience to be unaware of this

:00:32.:00:31.

issue. Kyle Edmund is threatened with rape

:00:32.:00:32.

and murder on Facebook, The threats were utterly vile but

:00:33.:00:48.

sadly all too common in this day and age. They are often made by gamblers

:00:49.:00:53.

who have lost money on the outcome of a match. And after today's

:00:54.:00:58.

lovely, sunny conditions, we're looking at some changes. I will be

:00:59.:01:01.

back later in the programme for the forecast for the rest of the week

:01:02.:01:03.

and the weekend as well. It's emerged today that NHS

:01:04.:01:16.

bosses who run Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole Hospitals knew

:01:17.:01:30.

for months about missing patient referrals, but only

:01:31.:01:32.

finally admitted it to the public when they were forced

:01:33.:01:34.

to by a local council. The mistake has meant more

:01:35.:01:37.

than 100 people waiting to see a consultant -

patients who were not registered They should not have to be dragged

:03:47.:04:03.

in front of a panel to admit that there is an issue.

:04:04.:04:05.

The trust deals with around 90,000 patient referrals per

:04:06.:04:07.

As Allison packs her dad's hospital bag

:04:08.:04:19.

it has emerged that at least another 50 patients

:04:20.:04:21.

hospital's helpline about their missed referrals.

:04:22.:04:23.

Today the extraordinary details of how this NHS mistake became

:04:24.:04:26.

It took a legal move by the North Linolnshire Council

:04:27.:04:29.

Health Scrutiny Committee to force the hospital trust to go public

:04:30.:04:32.

with the information which they'd kept private for months.

:04:33.:04:36.

Councillor Holly Mumby-Croft leads that Scrutiny Committee.

:04:37.:04:41.

She told me how she asked the hospitals to make a public

:04:42.:04:43.

I was made aware several days before the 6th of

:04:44.:04:54.

I was fully briefed at that point and my

:04:55.:04:57.

media release would happen on the 6th of March.

:04:58.:05:00.

When that didn't happen, I began immediately to ask

:05:01.:05:03.

I then took the decision on the Wednesday, that

:05:04.:05:06.

would be two days after that, to invoke

:05:07.:05:08.

legislation to require the

:05:09.:05:09.

chief executive of the Northern Lincs and Goole Hospital

:05:10.:05:11.

Trust and chief officer of the clinical commissioning group

:05:12.:05:15.

sufficiently concerned that this needs to be discussed and patients

:05:16.:05:22.

needed to be represented and that important questions need to be

:05:23.:05:25.

asked of these people and that that needed to be in a public

:05:26.:05:28.

Were it not for you forcing their arm then maybe they wouldn't have

:05:29.:05:40.

I am not in a position to comment on when or if

:05:41.:05:45.

the trust would have made this public.

:05:46.:05:47.

But clearly we as a health scrutiny panel took this very

:05:48.:05:50.

seriously, we took it seriously enough that for the first time we

:05:51.:05:52.

invoked the legislation and required their attendance.

:05:53.:05:57.

If a trust knows about something like this so serious

:05:58.:05:59.

possibly going back a year and they don't

:06:00.:06:01.

do anything about it until you

:06:02.:06:02.

as a whistle-blower forced their hand,

:06:03.:06:04.

what trust can people have in

:06:05.:06:05.

Clearly people's trust and concern will be damaged at this

:06:06.:06:12.

If there are any developments on that story, we will let you know.

:06:13.:06:29.

Hull has been given ?5 million of extra charity money

:06:30.:06:32.

Cancer Research Yorkshire has targeted the city as it has a higher

:06:33.:06:36.

than average death rate from the disease.

:06:37.:06:37.

The funding will help diagnose cancer earlier.

:06:38.:06:40.

The Government has been challenged over the case of an East Yorkshire

:06:41.:06:43.

farmer facing a ?30,000 pound legal bill.

:06:44.:06:45.

Kenneth Hugill was recently found not guilty of grievous bodily

:06:46.:06:47.

harm at Hull Crown Court after shooting a trespasser

:06:48.:06:49.

Mr Hugill's case was today raised in the House of Lords.

:06:50.:06:59.

How can we reconcile the presumption of innocence and an acquittal with

:07:00.:07:05.

the fact that claiming legal costs incurred to maintain innocence is no

:07:06.:07:07.

longer normally possible? Responding for the Government,

:07:08.:07:09.

Lord Keen said Mr Hugill had been eligible for legal aid,

:07:10.:07:12.

but declined it. Had he accepted the offer of legal

:07:13.:07:22.

aid, he would have been required to make a relatively modest

:07:23.:07:25.

contribution. He would have been able to recover that contribution

:07:26.:07:30.

upon being acquitted. However, the individual inquest decided not to

:07:31.:07:33.

accept the offer of legal aid instead instructed lawyers privately

:07:34.:07:38.

and in no circumstances he was not eligible for recovery of costs. Of

:07:39.:07:42.

course, all of these matters will be subject to the review, which is to

:07:43.:07:48.

be completed by April 20 18. Those exchanges in the House of Lords.

:07:49.:07:50.

The East Yorkshire tennis player Kyle Edmund has revealed he's been

:07:51.:07:53.

threatened with murder and rape in messages on social media.

:07:54.:07:59.

The 46th ranked player in the world, who is from Beverley,

:08:00.:08:01.

highlighted the posts on his Facebook page

:08:02.:08:03.

after being knocked out of a tournament in California.

:08:04.:08:05.

This report from Sarah Walton has some disturbing language.

:08:06.:08:07.

Kyle Edmund is seen as one of tennis's up and coming stars.

:08:08.:08:10.

But world number two Novak Djokovic proved to be too much

:08:11.:08:13.

for him at the weekend, and he was knocked out

:08:14.:08:16.

But in the hours that followed his defeat,

:08:17.:08:20.

Kyle says he received abusive messages on Facebook.

:08:21.:08:24.

The posts include threats of violent murder and rape

:08:25.:08:26.

as well as derogatory remarks about his appearance.

:08:27.:08:31.

And commentators say other British players have been

:08:32.:08:34.

The threats made against Kyle Edmund were utterly vile but sadly all too

:08:35.:08:39.

They are often made by gamblers who have lost money

:08:40.:08:43.

Johanna Konta has spoken about it in the past,

:08:44.:08:47.

She has talked about the death threats she has received

:08:48.:08:57.

and the threats made against her own family.

:08:58.:08:59.

Sadly, for women, it's often far worse than it is for men,

:09:00.:09:02.

as was the case here with Kyle Edmund.

:09:03.:09:04.

Many threats contain a hint of sexual violence.

:09:05.:09:06.

Even Wimbledon winner Andy Murray has described abuse he received

:09:07.:09:08.

online as vile and no longer uses Twitter on a regular basis.

:09:09.:09:11.

The Lawn Tennis Association, the sport's governing body

:09:12.:09:13.

"Professional players are responsible for reporting acts

:09:14.:09:16.

of online bullying to the respective social media outlets.

:09:17.:09:18.

But online threats are illegal and those targeted can

:09:19.:09:21.

The Crown Prosecution Service recognises is a very serious

:09:22.:09:29.

Last year severe penalties were increased.

:09:30.:09:34.

The maximum sentence has gone up and is

:09:35.:09:36.

Over the last year so there has been a tenfold

:09:37.:09:46.

increase of police prosecuting exactly the of abuse.

:09:47.:09:50.

Kyle told Look North this morning that he won't comment any further

:09:51.:09:53.

as he has no time to spend on negative issues.

:09:54.:09:55.

He's now focusing on his next tournament in Miami

:09:56.:09:57.

Now the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.

:09:58.:10:08.

Hello there. Good evening. It was glorious today. Temperatures reach

:10:09.:10:15.

16 Celsius across many parts. Although we have seen a little bit

:10:16.:10:19.

of most developed in some spots. A fine night, a dry night with clear

:10:20.:10:23.

spells, although that could be more cloud later in the night as

:10:24.:10:28.

temperatures fall back to 7-8dC. For tomorrow, the best of the sunshine

:10:29.:10:32.

will be in the morning. Not quite as nice overall tomorrow. We will see

:10:33.:10:36.

cloud increasing, the breeze picking up and it will not be as mild as it

:10:37.:10:43.

has been but it will stay dry. The remote not affect us until after

:10:44.:10:46.

dark and even when it does it will be light and patchy. We live in

:10:47.:10:48.

Celsius. A windy day on Friday with the risk of rain through the

:10:49.:10:52.

afternoon. And I'm settled for the weekend. And that is it from us.

:10:53.:10:57.

Thank you for watching tonight. We are back tomorrow. Goodbye.

:10:58.:11:02.

been. The outlook, rain around, if it stays dry I will be surprised.

:11:03.:11:06.

Here is Nick with the national headlines.

:11:07.:11:20.

For large parts of Wales and England there was blue sky and warmth.

:11:21.:11:26.

Warmest day of the year, a clumsy way of saying the UK had the highest

:11:27.:11:36.

temperature of the year so far. There have been big contrasts. Some

:11:37.:11:41.

of that misty, murky weather to the south-west is advancing across other

:11:42.:11:43.

parts of England and Wales through the night. Ahead of that, where we

:11:44.:11:47.

have clear spells, central and eastern England there could be fog

:11:48.:11:54.

patches developing, outbreaks of rain to north-west Scotland feeding

:11:55.:11:55.
