The next phase for Northstowe ` the new town for Cambridgeshire

:00:00.:00:07.

Thousands more homes and a secondary school but will it

:00:08.:00:10.

Hundreds of police officers in the region are taken

:00:11.:00:17.

High parking costs and long waits for baggage.

:00:18.:00:27.

Luton is ranked the worst ahrport for customer satisfaction.

:00:28.:00:29.

And 50 years on, we remember the Mods and Rockers and thdir

:00:30.:00:33.

It's been talked about for more than a decade, but after

:00:34.:00:48.

years of false starts and stalling, there's a guarantee tonight that

:00:49.:00:52.

the new town of Northstowe will be built ` just north of Cambrhdge

:00:53.:00:56.

On paper it's said to be the biggest building project in

:00:57.:00:59.

the country ` the largest ndw town to be built since Milton Kexnes

:01:00.:01:04.

When complete there will be 10, 00 new homes, a town centre with shops,

:01:05.:01:09.

community facilities, six primary schools and a secondary school.

:01:10.:01:14.

The first phase of construction is due to start in October.

:01:15.:01:17.

Today plans for the second phase were unveiled.

:01:18.:01:21.

This old airfield was used during World War II and then becamd an

:01:22.:01:39.

immigration centre. A new town is planned to be built here. It'll be

:01:40.:01:44.

the biggest new town in the country for decades. Here, will be the

:01:45.:01:48.

centre for it, but many people have wondered if it would be built. This

:01:49.:01:55.

will be the biggest new town since the 1960s. Thousands of new homes,

:01:56.:01:59.

schools and shops. Paul helped planet. `` plan it. But with this

:02:00.:02:12.

region desperate for new holes, why is this all taken so long? Ht always

:02:13.:02:18.

takes longer than people thhnk. What is important is that we havd worked

:02:19.:02:24.

very well over the past few years through times of austerity to reject

:02:25.:02:29.

the plans and make sure we `re going as quick as you can. Phase two to go

:02:30.:02:38.

appear on this airfield. Pl`ns to build 3500 homes. Phase one,

:02:39.:02:42.

archaeologists now at work before building begins on 1500 new homes

:02:43.:02:47.

and a new school. What is already in place for the new town is this the

:02:48.:02:55.

guided bus. Phase one will go that way, as far as you can see `nd be on

:02:56.:03:04.

that phase two. Northstowe was first proposed in 1988. In 2000, plan

:03:05.:03:08.

stalled as an immigration cdntre opened. Ten years on, the cdntre

:03:09.:03:15.

closed. Reply Michelle, the changes in government also contributed. ``

:03:16.:03:27.

with plans shelved. The first homes and a primary school are dud to open

:03:28.:03:34.

next year. It will be fine. It may cause chaos. There's a great for

:03:35.:03:43.

housing in the area. There hsn't the facilities. Some questioned whether

:03:44.:03:46.

the new town will be completed, and with phase two needing planning

:03:47.:03:51.

permission, there is still ` way to go. Key to this development is the

:03:52.:03:58.

upgrade of the A14, road with its own history of political U`turns.

:03:59.:04:02.

Come October, building work will start on phase one here, but in this

:04:03.:04:08.

town is to reach its full shze, it needs planning permission for phase

:04:09.:04:10.

two and then phase three. Well, Ian Bates,

:04:11.:04:21.

from Cambridgeshire County council, has been working on the project

:04:22.:04:23.

since it began 16 years ago. I asked him if next year's

:04:24.:04:29.

general election could mean yet I think next year's elections,

:04:30.:04:34.

all parties are quite signed up to the development, to

:04:35.:04:39.

the infrastructure, and the delivery of that, so it won't be depdndent

:04:40.:04:41.

on the elections because thdy are We don't know for certain

:04:42.:04:44.

about the funding being there How dependent is Northstowe

:04:45.:04:48.

on this A14 development? It is dependent on it but rdmember

:04:49.:04:51.

we are building consultation with government departments

:04:52.:04:54.

and the environment agency, and It was cancelled

:04:55.:04:56.

before the election, we havd now got We are getting total assurances it

:04:57.:05:03.

will be delivered, It will be delivered,

:05:04.:05:10.

it has to be delivered as p`rt Because Cambridgeshire is

:05:11.:05:15.

desperate for housing. We needed this ten years ago,

:05:16.:05:19.

didn't we? The house prices are very hhgh,

:05:20.:05:21.

but that's part of Northstowe's development, but it is also all

:05:22.:05:26.

of the otherdevelopments th`t is happening on the southern fringes,

:05:27.:05:29.

so we are delivering a largd, After such a long wait, we have

:05:30.:05:35.

an ambitious target, don't we? You say there will be

:05:36.:05:42.

a primary school built I've already seen the plans

:05:43.:05:45.

for the new school. That has been discussed with

:05:46.:05:52.

the parish councils this wedk. We have seen the plans, so H think

:05:53.:05:54.

it is well on track to be ddlivered. Can you give us a cast`iron

:05:55.:05:59.

guarantee that Northstowe is going We already have a lot

:06:00.:06:03.

of infrastructure, That would open the new sitd

:06:04.:06:09.

and not far down that road hs a new station, which of course has

:06:10.:06:15.

got planning permission All the pieces are the jigs`w

are there, and it will happdn. Stress, injury and pressure

at work is being blamed for taking hundreds of police officers

:06:31.:06:34.

in this region out of action Instead they are being put

on restricted duty and office jobs. Here's our home affairs

:06:45.:06:49.

at Suffolk Police for 23 years until June

when she handed in her resignation. Burned out by stress and depression,

resulting from a pressured working This officer with awards `

:07:05.:07:09.

from their own doctor that H was unwell and recommendations

:07:10.:07:12.

of how they can improve I know other people

:07:13.:07:15.

in a similar situation. Once off sick she says she felt even

:07:16.:07:21.

more pressure to return to work I was being given targets to come

:07:22.:07:27.

back to work and being told I wanted to be back at a certain day

:07:28.:07:31.

and what can they do to accommodate The minute I step back, I w`sn't

:07:32.:07:34.

going to be offered any support If police officers are stressed or

:07:35.:07:45.

have other medical problems and conditions,

:07:46.:07:48.

they are eased back to work by being In Norfolk and Suffolk 260

:07:49.:07:50.

officers are on restricted duties. Their numbers are higher th`n

:07:51.:07:59.

those reported by other forces. It is almost the perfect storm

:08:00.:08:03.

in that we are seeing A great majority of our work

:08:04.:08:06.

in the Federation is about sickness, and is about officers who are being

:08:07.:08:14.

encouraged to come back to work where the officer or

:08:15.:08:18.

the medical teams don't feel it is Diana Stroh has put

:08:19.:08:21.

the police service behind hdr ` she's setting up her own website

:08:22.:08:26.

for a new business venture. Police say they do all they can to

:08:27.:08:29.

help officers return to work and full support is available to

:08:30.:08:32.

help them. They say officers on restricted

:08:33.:08:34.

duties are performing useful But this veteran officer believes

:08:35.:08:36.

others are also finding it too much. They'll reach a breaking pohnt

:08:37.:08:42.

like I did. Somebody somewhere has to lhsten

:08:43.:08:44.

and realise that if you're going to keep adding to their worklo`d,

:08:45.:08:49.

you have to take something `way Bedford has been crowned thd UK s

:08:50.:08:52.

most generous town, by the online In the last year more than 41,0 0

:08:53.:08:58.

people with a Bedford postcode gave mord than

:08:59.:09:03.

a ?1.1 million to charities online. It means just over half

:09:04.:09:07.

of the population In second place was Cambridge `

:09:08.:09:10.

there just over a third So what is it about Bedford

:09:11.:09:15.

that makes it so generous? Stuart Ratcliffe has

:09:16.:09:20.

been finding out. Bedford. Famous for its reg`rds And

:09:21.:09:39.

it is the birthplace of Carol Vorderman. It has another claim to

:09:40.:09:47.

fame. Britain's most generots place. Perhaps we are generous, I don't

:09:48.:09:54.

know. They seem quite horrible. We aren't from here. It is just people

:09:55.:10:01.

naturally being nice for a good cause. One of those good catses

:10:02.:10:10.

which company relies on this town's generosity is this day care Hospice.

:10:11.:10:15.

We get no government backing or big charity like some of them do, so we

:10:16.:10:22.

are testament to Bedford. Wd need quarter of ?1 million to survive an

:10:23.:10:28.

ad comes on local people. Bddford is by no means the richest town and is

:10:29.:10:32.

an employment rate is higher than the regional average. The town's

:10:33.:10:37.

Mayor believes generosity is more than just money. I'm surprised we

:10:38.:10:44.

are at the top. We have a lot of people giving their time and

:10:45.:10:49.

volunteering. It is great to know they give money. One theory is that

:10:50.:10:56.

with a number of retired people twice the average, could thhs be the

:10:57.:11:01.

key to the town's generositx? There is evidence that baby boomers are

:11:02.:11:10.

the largest givers to charity, and earning the most. Those who know the

:11:11.:11:16.

history no Bedford is home to the Harper trust. Perhaps this survey

:11:17.:11:22.

should come as no surprise, as this is the town were even the statues

the first derby for three ydars For the fans it's

the one that really matters. This report is from

our sports editor Jonathan Park They haven't seen much of e`ch other

recently. Reunited with a long`standing connection. M`nagers

with a gulf of experience btt it's a first local get`together in the

:16:11.:16:13.

dugout for both. It's not the most famous derby

:16:14.:16:17.

around, but for Suffolk and Norfolk the only thing that matters tomorrow

:16:18.:16:21.

lunch time is right here. The rivalry, the intensity, the

:16:22.:16:25.

passion. The outcome of this game will have

:16:26.:16:30.

in `` more bearing on the stpporters than for the rest of the city.

:16:31.:16:37.

This important game is not going to win or lose promotion.

:16:38.:16:42.

They have bragging rights for the last three years. 521, four to one,

:16:43.:16:48.

big wins for the Canaries b`ck in the days of Roy Keane.

:16:49.:16:52.

Two new gaffers are now at the helm. I'm not from Ipswich.

:16:53.:16:57.

I don't know what it means to the people that support their local

:16:58.:17:04.

teams. I have the same feelhngs It should be a big crowd, great

:17:05.:17:07.

atmosphere. I'm really looking forward to

:17:08.:17:14.

playing. To be down there, H can't wait. Obviously, to be going into it

:17:15.:17:21.

on the back of two really positive results is even that.

:17:22.:17:24.

The Ipswich and Norwich riv`lry goes The Ipswich and Norwich riv`lry goes

:17:25.:17:29.

back a long way. Ipswich hold the upper hand with 40 wins to 36.

:17:30.:17:34.

Nearly 15,000 people are expected. The two clubs have a good

:17:35.:17:49.

relationship. The fans hate each other! Lets hope for good things for

:17:50.:17:54.

East Anglian football, going ahead. Some of these fans have comd all the

:17:55.:18:01.

way from America. I don't know anyone who supports

:18:02.:18:04.

Norwich in the USA so I think we will `` I will get away with it if I

:18:05.:18:09.

lose. A whole raft of players will get a

:18:10.:18:12.

new experience tomorrow. But he will be the heroes?

A reminder that you can follow that match on BBC Radio Suffolk `nd

:18:19.:18:21.

Coverage starts on Radio Suffolk at 9pm and 11:30pm

:18:22.:18:24.

Away from the football, there's a lot more going on across the

:18:25.:18:29.

People are already beginning to enjoy their bank holidays hdre. They

:18:30.:18:51.

are already crabbing and having a lovely time here. We are having some

:18:52.:18:55.

seaside songs later on in the programme. That get down to

:18:56.:18:59.

business. I will update you about the travel situation becausd we have

:19:00.:19:02.

a couple of incidents to tell you about. On the M1 northbound, near

:19:03.:19:09.

the junction for Northampton, has been a serious crash. The whole

:19:10.:19:19.

motorway is closed. People coming back from the Claxton errors show,

:19:20.:19:21.

there are about eight miles of tailbacks. On the trains, the best

:19:22.:19:28.

advice is to chat with your train company. There are loads of delays

:19:29.:19:40.

and cancellations. Great Anglian's service between Ipswich and

:19:41.:19:46.

Felixstowe, Colchester and Stowmarket will have buses replacing

:19:47.:19:49.

the trains or weekends. On the plains, around 200,000 people will

:19:50.:19:53.

be travelling from Luton and Stansted this weekend. It whll be

:19:54.:19:56.

busy at our airports but it does seem that a lot of people are not

:19:57.:19:59.

too impressed with our biggdr airports.

:20:00.:20:04.

For the second year in a row, this airports, Luton, has become `` has

:20:05.:20:09.

come bottom of a passenger survey. They looked at the aspects of

:20:10.:20:15.

airports performance that m`tter most to passengers. The length of

:20:16.:20:20.

queues, speed of baggage reclaim. It's an unwelcome accolade `t the

:20:21.:20:23.

airport boss says that under new owners they are spending money to

:20:24.:20:27.

make things better. We will be significantly increasing

:20:28.:20:29.

the amount of international departure lounge space. We will be

:20:30.:20:33.

building some additional security lanes, some additional bagg`ge

:20:34.:20:38.

reclaim belts and some additional immigration lanes. We are also

:20:39.:20:42.

providing an EP and will be improving road access.

:20:43.:20:45.

There is a promise of futurd improvement, that what do the

:20:46.:20:51.

passengers things? I'd like to have seen the roadworks

:20:52.:20:57.

completed on the way in. Otherwise, it's OK.

:20:58.:21:02.

I think it's very convenient. It's small and approachable, everything

:21:03.:21:06.

is very accessible. There is not too much walking libraries in Hdathrow.

:21:07.:21:09.

I think it's very good. Is quite pleasant. I went straight

:21:10.:21:17.

through security, no problels. I'm having a pint and reading the paper.

:21:18.:21:23.

No delays. So far, so good. Looted is not the only airports to perform

:21:24.:21:25.

badly. The largest were among the worst
