let-up. Thank you. That is all from the BBC News at Six. Goodbye. Now

:00:00.:00:07.

Hello and welcome to Look East. In the programme tonight...

:00:08.:00:13.

Full steam ahead as the new railway station for Cambridge gets the

:00:14.:00:15.

go`ahead. The community rallies round after

:00:16.:00:18.

heartless thieves steal Christmas presents intended for three

:00:19.:00:27.

generations of the same family. We will be here later with the rest

:00:28.:00:33.

of the day's news, including a massive cut in the jobless figures.

:00:34.:00:39.

We're at the defence company where the workforce has doubled in three

:00:40.:00:41.

years. And hanging out with the Darkness

:00:42.:00:50.

before their latest home`town gig. A brand`new ?30 million train

:00:51.:00:53.

station for Cambridge has got the final go`ahead today. It will be

:00:54.:00:59.

built on the outskirts of the city beside the Science and Business

:01:00.:01:04.

Parks and promises to create jobs. There's already a station in

:01:05.:01:07.

Cambridge but at peak times it can take more than 40 minutes to travel

:01:08.:01:11.

across the city to the Chesterton area, where thousands of people are

:01:12.:01:14.

employed. The plan was passed unanimously by councillors but

:01:15.:01:16.

there's still plenty of fine`tuning to be done, as Ben Bland reports.

:01:17.:01:26.

A busy stations serving a busy city. There has been talk of a second

:01:27.:01:31.

railway station just north of Cambridge for 15 years. Now it has

:01:32.:01:35.

got the go`ahead and passengers are pleased.

:01:36.:01:39.

Do you think the city needs a second station? It will do, because of all

:01:40.:01:46.

the building work going on. I think it is too congested here so it will

:01:47.:01:49.

make sense to give people more options. I think this one is fine

:01:50.:01:56.

but I think maybe we had better because it will be less busy.

:01:57.:02:03.

Sounds fantastic. Good news, really good. Convenient for us.

:02:04.:02:11.

At a meeting today, councillors voted unanimously on giving

:02:12.:02:15.

permission for the station to be built. It will join up with the

:02:16.:02:21.

guided busway, while new buses will link it to the new town being built.

:02:22.:02:30.

And it should be easier to reach the Science Park and the business park.

:02:31.:02:35.

We have a lot of residents from the north of the city and it will mean

:02:36.:02:42.

they have ready convenient access to train routes across the country

:02:43.:02:46.

without having to come into the congested city centre and Station

:02:47.:02:51.

Road area. This site will be transformed into this. But some

:02:52.:02:55.

people are worried about extra traffic and commuters parking on the

:02:56.:03:01.

by roads. Others say the proposed cycle routes are not safe and others

:03:02.:03:09.

do not want it to be built across a nearby nature reserve. But the

:03:10.:03:12.

biggest issue at the moment is the noise. At the moment there is noise

:03:13.:03:16.

from the railway but it is not excessive. In a few years when it

:03:17.:03:22.

grows the potential for noise will be enormous. This is where the new

:03:23.:03:26.

station will go. It will cost ? 0 station will go. It will cost ? 0

:03:27.:03:31.

million but the train line is already in place, it runs along the

:03:32.:03:35.

back of the site, so the county council says that trains could be

:03:36.:03:37.

stopping here by the end of 2015. stopping here by the end of 201 .

:03:38.:03:44.

Councillor Ian Bates is in charge of planning and growth the

:03:45.:03:47.

Cambridgeshire County Council. The majority of people think this is a

:03:48.:03:51.

good idea. Why has it taken 15 years? I think the simple answer it

:03:52.:03:56.

is about some leadership, and we have shown that. We are the

:03:57.:04:03.

fastest`growing county, plenty of economy and jobs, so the decision of

:04:04.:04:06.

the Cabinet was that we should proceed. It is really about grasping

:04:07.:04:14.

the nettle of growth. We need a station. None of this comes for free

:04:15.:04:21.

and you are going to or the money to pay for this but you have a plan to

:04:22.:04:27.

get it back? `` borrowed the money. Correct. We will get money back

:04:28.:04:33.

through tickets and it will mean more than 3000 extra passengers and

:04:34.:04:38.

we are content with our business plan. People are not pleased with

:04:39.:04:44.

all aspects of this plan. There are concerns about the cycle path, the

:04:45.:04:48.

neighbouring nature reserve and the affect on that. A lot of people

:04:49.:04:51.

worried about packing. These will need to be ironed out. You are

:04:52.:04:57.

right. I listened to the debate and lots of people in Cambridge talking

:04:58.:05:01.

about those issues. It will have to come back to the committee to talk

:05:02.:05:06.

about some of those local, detailed issues, and I am content that that

:05:07.:05:11.

will be dealt with later on, when we get to the details about parking,

:05:12.:05:14.

cycling, and they will be dealt with later on. But you know what this is

:05:15.:05:21.

like. When it comes back to dealing with the community and people want

:05:22.:05:25.

certain things, it is not always am quickly. Is there are the essential

:05:26.:05:29.

that these niggles may delay the whole project? I don't think so. The

:05:30.:05:33.

whole project? I don't think so The big picture has been dealt with

:05:34.:05:38.

today. What we need now is to work through some of those details that

:05:39.:05:43.

local people have said they are concerned about. We will address

:05:44.:05:46.

those concerns next year and then come forward with those details and

:05:47.:05:52.

everything will be, I think, smooth. Very quickly, cyclists will

:05:53.:05:57.

be safe under this scheme and people will not find passengers parking in

:05:58.:06:04.

their driveways? No. There will the plenty of car parking spaces so I am

:06:05.:06:07.

not anticipating those problems and hopefully there will be no problems.

:06:08.:06:13.

Thank you very much, Councillor Ian Bates.

:06:14.:06:14.

In Northampton another multi`million`pound development has

:06:15.:06:16.

also been given outline planning permission. The University of

:06:17.:06:18.

Northampton will develop the Avon Nunn Mills site where the old power

:06:19.:06:22.

station and Avon cosmetics factory used to operate. It will develop a

:06:23.:06:26.

completely new new campus in a scheme which is scheduled to be

:06:27.:06:32.

opened in 2018. An 80`year`old woman has been left

:06:33.:06:35.

devastated after thieves broke into her home and stole the Christmas

:06:36.:06:38.

presents for three generations of her family. Evelyn Beaver says she

:06:39.:06:41.

hasn't had the heart to put up Christmas decorations following the

:06:42.:06:45.

theft. Louise Hubball is at Evelyn's Peterborough home now to explain.

:06:46.:06:58.

It was on Sunday evening in the hour after strictly come dancing that an

:06:59.:07:02.

intruder came through this door and straight up these stairs and came

:07:03.:07:07.

back with a bag of wrapped presents, belonging to the pensioners who live

:07:08.:07:14.

here. They will furl their `` for their grandchildren and

:07:15.:07:18.

great`grandchildren are things like personalised towels, aftershave and

:07:19.:07:23.

perfume. In all it was worth around ?500, the couple say, and if you

:07:24.:07:28.

come through you can meet Evelyn and Nick. Nick was actually asleep when

:07:29.:07:40.

the intruder broke in. We are dead `` devastated. It happens all the

:07:41.:07:48.

time, though, we are just one of the people who got caught. It is just

:07:49.:07:58.

the shock of it. I am grateful that Michael did not get up to have a go.

:07:59.:08:04.

Make me you were asleep in that very chair. `` Mick, you were. Yes. I'm

:08:05.:08:17.

afraid I did go to sleep this particular night and what woke me up

:08:18.:08:25.

was a draft on my face and I turned and looked and this person or

:08:26.:08:28.

persons were going out through the front door. So you actually caught a

:08:29.:08:35.

glimpse? I caught the back of them, not a facial. Terrifying

:08:36.:08:42.

nonetheless. It is, and the fact that I got up quickly, I might have

:08:43.:08:51.

got them. I think Evelyn is very pleased that you did not try that.

:08:52.:08:55.

The one good thing is the support you have seen from the community,

:08:56.:09:01.

people you have never even met. My daughter met a lady last night and

:09:02.:09:05.

she has given us a Christmas card with some money in it, and the

:09:06.:09:10.

support we have got around the square as well as from my daughter

:09:11.:09:17.

is just phenomenal. You don't know when you are going to need a

:09:18.:09:22.

friend. That is wonderful to hear, and thank you both very much for

:09:23.:09:26.

inviting us into your home. The police recommend that you do not put

:09:27.:09:32.

presents on display under your Christmas tree. You can hear more on

:09:33.:09:44.

this tomorrow on BBC Cambridgeshire. Homeowners in a Northamptonshire

:09:45.:09:47.

town say they have been upset by a letter claiming rights over the land

:09:48.:09:50.

their house are built on. The letters have come from the Duchy of

:09:51.:09:54.

Lancaster, which is owned by the Queen. They were delivered in Raunds

:09:55.:09:57.

last week and say the Duchy is applying to register rights to the

:09:58.:10:00.

mines and minerals under their houses.

:10:01.:10:02.

It has been their little green space for over 40 years but now Mary and

:10:03.:10:05.

Arnold Richardson are not so sure, after they received a letter from

:10:06.:10:10.

the land Registry last week. `` Donald. It looked official and when

:10:11.:10:18.

I started to read it I thought, oh, my lord, what is this about?

:10:19.:10:24.

Somebody else owns our land, our little bit of land that we thought

:10:25.:10:32.

was ours possibly isn't. Apparently we own the surface area, the Duchy

:10:33.:10:35.

of Lancaster owns what is underneath. Around 2000 people in

:10:36.:10:41.

Raunds have received the same letter. I turned it over and saw the

:10:42.:10:46.

government website on the back and wondered what it was about. It is

:10:47.:10:51.

quite difficult language to understand on it. The Duchy of

:10:52.:10:54.

Lancaster has come out saying he has the rights, we have the freehold to

:10:55.:11:00.

our Rome properties and it would be a matter for a legal debate. `` are

:11:01.:11:09.

own rubber teas. The Duchy has had the rights to minerals since

:11:10.:11:11.

medieval times. This month Raunds last month nearby

:11:12.:11:32.

Chester. The solicitor has fielded many anxious phone calls. It is

:11:33.:11:42.

purely bureaucratic exercise, these rights already existed. I have come

:11:43.:11:47.

across them in old title deeds and be facetious comment I make is, if

:11:48.:11:54.

you find gold in your garden, cover it up quickly because it is not

:11:55.:11:59.

yours. A lot of people are digging deep this Christmas but it will not

:12:00.:12:06.

be the landed gentry bash your garden remains their property.

:12:07.:12:15.

In the last two hours it's been announced that victims of the Winter

:12:16.:12:18.

Wonderland fiasco in Milton Keynes are to get their money refunded. The

:12:19.:12:20.

are to get their money refunded The Wonderland closed at the weekend

:12:21.:12:23.

after just one day, with hundreds of complaints from visitors saying the

:12:24.:12:25.

attraction had ruined their Christmas. Neil Bradford's been

:12:26.:12:28.

following this story and joins us now. Neil, good news, then, for

:12:29.:12:31.

those visitors? That's right. As you might imagine over the last few days

:12:32.:12:34.

we have been contacted by dozens of viewers affect it and it seemed

:12:35.:12:40.

there were some conflicting messages. While some had claimed

:12:41.:12:47.

their money back from the money processing company, others were told

:12:48.:12:50.

that because there transaction was more than 40 days old they would not

:12:51.:12:57.

be covered. This morning Look East contacted the company directly and

:12:58.:13:00.

late this afternoon they have confirmed they will be offering

:13:01.:13:03.

their customers what they call a goodwill refund to anybody left out

:13:04.:13:10.

of pocket by this event. That includes the Collins family from

:13:11.:13:14.

Leighton buzzard. Catherine, Declan and their four`year`old daughter

:13:15.:13:20.

Lacey went to the event on Saturday and were left bitterly was appointed

:13:21.:13:26.

after paying ?47 to go ice`skating and see Father Christmas. Catherine

:13:27.:13:30.

told me she was presently surprised to receive her money back, they had

:13:31.:13:35.

written it off but now they are looking forward to take Lacey to see

:13:36.:13:50.

Santa elsewhere. PayPal say that if you have launched a transaction

:13:51.:13:56.

dispute you will be refunded in full and you do not have to do anything

:13:57.:14:00.

else but they say if you have not you should do so now. A lot of

:14:01.:14:08.

companies were mentioned on the winter wonderland website and they

:14:09.:14:11.

were listed as supporters of the event, including MK Dons, the foot

:14:12.:14:18.

wall team, and Riva buses. A reader buses told us they did not supported

:14:19.:14:25.

at all. MK Dons have said the same. `` support it at all. They have gone

:14:26.:14:32.

to trading standards. I have spoken to a special events company which

:14:33.:14:39.

says they were involved in the early stages but they had to pull out

:14:40.:14:43.

because the organiser did not take their advice. We have tried to

:14:44.:14:47.

contact the organiser, Lorenzo Franco, tonight, but he says the

:14:48.:14:54.

matter is out of his hands and in the hands of his legal team.

:14:55.:14:57.

Bedfordshire Police is under investigation over its dealings with

:14:58.:15:00.

the child abuse case involving Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins.

:15:01.:15:01.

the child abuse case involving Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins The

:15:02.:15:01.

Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins. The Independent Police Complaints

:15:02.:15:03.

Commission says it's looking at how the force responded to reports of

:15:04.:15:05.

abuse made to them in October 2 12. abuse made to them in October 2 12.

:15:06.:15:09.

The force says it received a complaint from a member of the

:15:10.:15:12.

public after she reported a suspected incident of child abuse

:15:13.:15:14.

but there had been insufficient evidence to apply for a warrant

:15:15.:15:18.

In rugby, the Northampton Saints have been fined ?60,000 for allowing

:15:19.:15:21.

George North to play for Wales against Australia last month. The

:15:22.:15:24.

fine's been imposed by Premiership Rugby because the the match took

:15:25.:15:27.

place outside the International Rugby Board international window for

:15:28.:15:28.

autumn. followed a thorough assessment of

:15:29.:15:34.

the needs of the prison system. Still to come. The darkness are

:15:35.:15:48.

coming home to Lowestoft and playing at the end of the pier. Another

:15:49.:15:53.

weapon in the fight to raise school's standards. Police officers

:15:54.:15:56.

out on the streets of expert looking for truants.

:15:57.:16:01.

There's been a big drop in unemployment in the East. It

:16:02.:16:04.

underlines our status as the region with the lowest unemployment rate in

:16:05.:16:08.

the country. The total stood at 176,000 in the three months to

:16:09.:16:12.

October, a fall of 35,000 on the previous quarter. The East's

:16:13.:16:18.

unemployment rate is now 5.6%. That compares with 10.1% in the worst

:16:19.:16:23.

region, the North East. Companies of all sizes are said to be taking on

:16:24.:16:27.

staff. One large firm, which has been recruiting strongly, is the

:16:28.:16:29.

defence contractor Lockheed Martin in Bedfordshire.

:16:30.:16:35.

Warrior tanks have served the British Army for 25 years, seeing

:16:36.:16:39.

action in the Gulf War, Bosnia and Afghanistan. But they need

:16:40.:16:44.

upgrading. Lockheed Martin got the job. On the Warrior programme, we

:16:45.:16:50.

are upgrading the turret, electronic systems and the armour. There are

:16:51.:16:57.

over 700 warriors in service and the current plan is to upgrade a minimum

:16:58.:17:02.

of 380. That will take the vehicle to 2040. Lockheed Martin won the

:17:03.:17:07.

Warrior contract from rival British Aerospace. BAE staff in the Midlands

:17:08.:17:12.

lost their jobs. Here at Ampthill, hundreds of people were taken on.

:17:13.:17:15.

Not just for Warrior but other contracts, too. The site is working

:17:16.:17:21.

on the new Scout tank and is looking at how tanks can fire on the move.

:17:22.:17:25.

This motion platform imitates movement over rough ground. At

:17:26.:17:31.

current capabilities, they have to stop to allow them to shoot the

:17:32.:17:35.

target. The new capability on the new Scout and Warrior programmes, it

:17:36.:17:38.

allows them to shoot whilst on the move. Therefore, they are not a

:17:39.:17:42.

sitting target for the enemy. In three years, the Ampthill workforce

:17:43.:17:44.

has doubled to 900, mostly specialist engineers. Among many

:17:45.:17:48.

special projects, they provide the technology inside Apache

:17:49.:17:55.

helicopters. They also find ways of applying military know`how to civvy

street. This visualisation product can be used for command and control

:18:02.:18:05.

in a military environment but also for civilian and commercial

:18:06.:18:08.

operations. For instance, wind. It will allow you to know where to

:18:09.:18:11.

place your wind turbines, in the right environment, so that you get

:18:12.:18:15.

the right wind density. And also, where not to place it, should you

:18:16.:18:20.

get too much wind power. Elsewhere in the region, defence cutbacks have

:18:21.:18:24.

caused job losses. 200 posts are currently under threat at the

:18:25.:18:28.

Marshall group in Cambridge. By winning business from competitors,

:18:29.:18:31.

Lockheed Martin has created hundreds of jobs. By using its know`how to

:18:32.:18:36.

find solutions to long`standing problems, it reckons more are on the

:18:37.:18:44.

way. Richard is here. So earlier we heard

:18:45.:18:48.

unemployment was down by 35,000 in one go. Why such a big drop? It must

:18:49.:18:58.

reflect an improving economy. We have been through a very severe

:18:59.:19:01.

recession in recent years, and when it started in 2008 unemployment

:19:02.:19:05.

started to shoot up as you would expect. We are now back on

:19:06.:19:10.

unemployment times when we were in 2008. Whether people feel as close

:19:11.:19:14.

as did then is another matter, that is we are. Which sectors of the

:19:15.:19:19.

economy are taking on staff? It is the private sector will stop I was

:19:20.:19:24.

talking to a recruitment consultant who said her firm was as busy as it

:19:25.:19:29.

has ever been, and the sectors she mentioned were retail in a row to

:19:30.:19:34.

Christmas, food manufacturing, the energy sector and also professional

:19:35.:19:40.

services. Small and medium`sized firms are recruiting quite well at

:19:41.:19:43.

the moment, and in this region we have an awful lot of them. Thank you

:19:44.:19:48.

very much. The police and education officers

:19:49.:19:51.

took to the streets of Ipswich today to search out children who were

:19:52.:19:54.

playing truant from school. Suffolk has become well`known for the poor

:19:55.:19:57.

quality of its education, particularly in primary schools. But

:19:58.:20:00.

what is perhaps less well`known is that it has one of the worst truancy

:20:01.:20:04.

rates too. It stands 127th out of the 152 councils in England. And of

:20:05.:20:08.

course the experts say, if you improve attendance, you'll improve

:20:09.:20:16.

performance too. Etcher and heading back to school

:20:17.:20:19.

after being caught shopping this morning in Ipswich. Earlier, a team

:20:20.:20:22.

of officers were briefed, among them this officer. It wasn't long before

:20:23.:20:29.

they found children bunking off school. The excuse this boy's mother

:20:30.:20:33.

was that he needed a new school shirt after staying in one with

:20:34.:20:37.

beetroot juice. She didn't want to talk to us. Also out of school, this

:20:38.:20:41.

little girl, although her mother said there was a good reason,

:20:42.:20:47.

tonsillitis. Mainly they don't encourage children enough to wash

:20:48.:20:51.

their hands at school. It concerns me, and a public doesn't help with

:20:52.:20:56.

her getting her tonsillitis as often as she does. There is a huge range

:20:57.:21:06.

of excuses parents come web. Are you ever amazed by the excuses? It is a

:21:07.:21:13.

travesty that people are thinking on their feet. I think is a travesty

:21:14.:21:17.

that the children aren't in school and actually those regions have come

:21:18.:21:21.

before anything else. Suffolk is near the bottom of national league

:21:22.:21:25.

tables for attainment. It is also in the bottom quarter for truancy. We

:21:26.:21:29.

know that a child less than 90% attendance will only have a 74% of

:21:30.:21:36.

getting pied a disease. So a direct link there between truancy and

:21:37.:21:46.

Go back to the early 2000s and one of the big bands from this part of

:24:58.:25:00.

the world were The Darkness. Heavy metal, outrageous suits and never

:25:01.:25:03.

guilty of taking themselves too seriously. They split up in 2006,

:25:04.:25:06.

re`formed in 2011 and released a third album last year. Now they're

:25:07.:25:10.

on tour, and tonight they are coming home to Lowestoft. Gareth George has

:25:11.:25:20.

been to meet them. The Darkness in their pomp. I first interviewed The

:25:21.:25:26.

Darkness ten years ago, before they are really hit the big time.

:25:27.:25:36.

Straight out of Lowestoft The Darkness. Do you remember that

:25:37.:25:38.

Not at all. Della. After ten years of rock stardom,

:25:39.:26:00.

they can't remember much. I think we should thank our parents. Denied,

:26:01.:26:05.

they are playing at a new venue in their hometown of Lowestoft. It is

:26:06.:26:10.

amazing this is your first gig in Lowestoft? It is amazing. We were

:26:11.:26:18.

formed in Lowestoft, we rehearsed in Lowestoft. Some of us still live in

:26:19.:26:23.

Lowestoft. Ten years ago it became famous. There was not anywhere big

:26:24.:26:27.

enough for us, so it is great somebody has invested the time and

:26:28.:26:33.

the money in a space that is now going to be hopefully one of the

:26:34.:26:36.

venues on the circuit for touring bands. As a teenager, you'd have to

:26:37.:26:45.

go over to Norwich to watch a. Often you would be unable to get the last

:26:46.:26:48.

train back. You'd have to get a list of someone, and this venue I think

:26:49.:26:55.

is 800 50 capacity. It is bigger than the waterfront in Norwich.

:26:56.:27:00.

Hopefully this new venue will bring bigger name bands to Lowestoft. With

:27:01.:27:06.

a bit of luck it will change Lowestoft music scene. The Darkness

:27:07.:27:12.

have not lost their loved rock roll. I think it has been our best tour so

:27:13.:27:18.

far, in terms of performance and five, and also technically I think

:27:19.:27:24.

we're better than me ever been. It is very cool to be playing rock 'n'

:27:25.:27:28.

roll. They play Lowestoft tonight and tomorrow. Nothing quite as

:27:29.:27:36.

talkative as a rock 'n' roll band. They will be fantastic. That is all.

:27:37.:27:40.

Goodbye.
