caught at home to appreciate that Corrie Mckeague

:01:26.:01:28.

before he went missing. The first thought is has

:01:29.:01:31.

he just tried to walk home? Has something happened to him

:01:32.:01:35.

on his way up the road? The absolute immediate thought

:01:36.:01:40.

after that is could any of these sites have had anything

:01:41.:01:43.

to do with this? Could he have arranged

:01:44.:01:45.

to try to meet someone and it's not Suffolk Police say they are aware

:01:46.:01:48.

of the social media and website he was using and this is part

out what has happened to Corrie. Meanwhile, private investigators

brought in say they are still unanswered questions,

from the investigation. The mystery surrounding this young

airman's disappearance has raised public interest in his private life

but his mother is adamant the focus must turn to the search for him

and hopefully his safe return. The jury at an inquest

plans to build the Sizewell C nuclear power station on the Suffolk

:04:44.:04:53.

coast has told Look East it will do everything it can

:04:54.:04:55.

to mitigate the negative impact All this week we've been taking

:04:56.:04:58.

a close look at the plans At the peak of construction,

:04:59.:05:03.

there would be 5,600 workers at Sizewell,

:05:04.:05:10.

an extra 2,000 vehicles and up While the project promises

:05:11.:05:12.

significant economic benefits, campaigners are asking

:05:13.:05:18.

at what price? In a moment, we'll here

:05:19.:05:19.

from the project director of Sizewell C but first this report

:05:20.:05:21.

by Richard Daniel. Construction on Sizewell B

:05:22.:05:29.

is underway. The influx of thousands

:05:30.:05:37.

of workers brought money, There was heavy drinking,

:05:38.:05:39.

prostitution and drugs. This resident says

:05:40.:05:50.

left social problems. We weren't ready for

:05:51.:05:54.

the displacement, there were so many people standing at the tills

:05:55.:06:02.

with bottles of whiskey. People felt the town didn't

:06:03.:06:06.

belong to them any more. At the peak of construction

:06:07.:06:14.

there would be more at Sizewell. About half of those would be living

:06:15.:06:22.

in or near the town. EDF says all would stick

:06:23.:06:28.

with a code of conduct. There will be testing

:06:29.:06:30.

and a hotline for complaints. Already in the plans

:06:31.:06:32.

are having an effect. This estate agent has seen increased

:06:33.:06:36.

interest in property investors. There would be a lot more

:06:37.:06:39.

business coming to town The town council says Sizewell C

:06:40.:06:45.

could be a huge economic At the moment it is not

:06:46.:06:51.

supporting it. It says there is insufficient

:06:52.:06:54.

information about the impact on GP services, schools,

:06:55.:06:56.

policing and the annual in-service There is a lot more detail that

:06:57.:06:58.

needs to come to the council and we would hope to work with EDF

:06:59.:07:10.

before we get to the next age. At a recent meeting, local companies

:07:11.:07:18.

were urged to sign up. EDF has already placed

:07:19.:07:21.

contracts worth 460 million. If Sizewell C was built, plenty

:07:22.:07:28.

of opportunities could lie ahead. I asked him about the influx

:07:29.:07:30.

of workers and those concerns surrounding prostitution,

:07:31.:07:44.

drugs and alcohol. The other concern is the volume

:07:45.:08:19.

of people coming to work It will be further work done,

:08:20.:08:38.

environmental monitoring and checking the condition of the Lords

:08:39.:08:42.

but further, there is feedback from local people and how that can be

:08:43.:08:46.

mitigated. The feedback from local people and the traffic issue is that

:08:47.:08:51.

they think it can't be mitigated. We have to work with the local

:08:52.:08:55.

authorities to convince them while we think the mitigation we will

:08:56.:08:58.

propose at the end of the consultation process will actually

:08:59.:09:04.

make it much better. I think many people can see the economic

:09:05.:09:09.

benefits, but the question that remains, at what price? That is a

:09:10.:09:12.

balancing act you have to make. Very much so. That is why we are

:09:13.:09:20.

consulting. We are obviously very proud of the opportunities that it

:09:21.:09:26.

could bring economically and job wise, skills development for the

:09:27.:09:29.

local community. It is a very large construction projects as part of the

:09:30.:09:32.

progress that like process we are progress that like process we are

:09:33.:09:37.

going through is to try to mitigate the negative impact while still

:09:38.:09:40.

realising all the benefits that go along with it. Thank you.

:09:41.:09:42.

Finally tonight, a pilot project is underway at The East

:09:43.:09:44.

of England Ambulance Service to reduce the number of people taken

:09:45.:09:47.

Instead of sending frontline crews, patients will be treated by a senior

:09:48.:09:51.

emergency medical technician and an occupational

:09:52.:09:53.

16% of all calls to the service are fall related, Putting

:09:54.:09:56.

Coming up now, the weather with Julie.

:09:57.:10:08.

But from the rest of the team, good night.

:10:09.:10:17.

Thank you. A dry night ahead with the a lot of clear sky although more

:10:18.:10:24.

in the way of cloud in the north, but under clear skies it'll be very

:10:25.:10:28.

chilly indeed with the temperature already lower than these values.

:10:29.:10:32.

With very light winds we are looking at patchy mist and fog as well.

:10:33.:10:37.

Tomorrow, high pressure in charge keeping it fine and dry and the fog

:10:38.:10:42.

may take some time to clear. There should be a lot of sunshine for much

:10:43.:10:47.

of the day. The temperature of around six Celsius. And we finished

:10:48.:10:53.

the day with again a lot of sunshine. The national just the

:10:54.:10:59.

moment but the outlook, and on Saturday more clouds but hopefully

:11:00.:11:01.

more sunshine, some decent sunny looks as though we can, a bit more

:11:02.:11:06.

cloud on Sunday. Now the national picture.

:11:07.:11:11.

Good evening, it will gradually get colder in the UK in the next few

:11:12.:11:17.

days, something we don't have to worry about in Australia at this

:11:18.:11:20.

time of year. Of course it's the Australian
