Good evening. David Cameron faces criticism. He is not using the

:00:20.:00:25.

money to help our heroes. We need - - we made a promise to the poorest

:00:25.:00:32.

people, we should keep that promise. More criticism of an under fire

:00:32.:00:39.

hospital. Things need to change, these are professional people, and

:00:39.:00:44.

the vulnerable go into hospital. Fenced in, claims that new security

:00:44.:00:49.

measures are not good for children. Following the hunt ball

Lincolnshire's most a normal person, this artist makes her final choice.

Or the weather details. -- all the weather details.

:01:06.:01:11.

Good evening. The Prime Minister has told BBC Look North that he

:01:11.:01:16.

will not back down on his decision to spend more money on overseas aid,

:01:16.:01:21.

whilst making cuts at home. He has spent much of the day in

:01:21.:01:31.
:01:31.:01:34.

Lincolnshire. Mr Cameron said -- was asked why he is slashed and --

:01:34.:01:42.

/ in the Budget. The Red Arrows welcomed the Prime

:01:42.:01:48.

Minister to Lincolnshire. David Cameron was given the honour of

:01:48.:01:54.

inspecting graduating cadets at RAF Cranwell. He praised the efforts of

:01:54.:02:00.

the RAF. Despite some recent defence cuts, he said he would not

:02:00.:02:06.

compromise when it came into the nation a's security. Yet one in 10

:02:06.:02:14.

of these recruits will not become pilots, he and face redundancy. --

:02:15.:02:19.

and face redundancy. The way the money is spent came under scrutiny

:02:19.:02:25.

at his next stop. These workers took part in a question and answer

:02:25.:02:33.

session. This woman asked why spending on overseas aid had gone

:02:33.:02:37.

up while spending on the armed forces had gone down? We made a

:02:37.:02:41.

promise, to some of the poorest people in the world, I think we

:02:41.:02:47.

should keep that promise. To let them down, I think that would be

:02:47.:02:53.

wrong. I do not think he answered my question. He was giving me other

:02:53.:02:58.

information. He never said why we are spending money abroad, but not

:02:58.:03:06.

using it to help our heroes. tried again. I think charity begins

:03:06.:03:10.

in the home. We have responsibilities to others, if we

:03:10.:03:13.

made a promise to the poorest people in the world, have I think

:03:13.:03:18.

we should keep that promise. If we are saving lives. We are helping

:03:18.:03:24.

ourselves. It means less immigration, less terrorism. For a

:03:24.:03:31.

more prosperous world. He knows that many disagree with him. He

:03:31.:03:37.

said he enjoyed taking part in a lively debate in Lincolnshire.

:03:37.:03:45.

Why is it this policy so controversial? He committed to

:03:45.:03:49.

spending �800 million on vaccines for children in the poorest

:03:49.:03:54.

countries in the world. That equates to around six times the

:03:54.:03:59.

amount being made by Lincolnshire County Council over the next four

:03:59.:04:04.

years. Many people on his own government say he has got his

:04:04.:04:09.

priorities wrong. During the last election he promised to remain --

:04:09.:04:16.

to ring fence two areas, help and international aid. He feels very

:04:16.:04:23.

strongly about this. During this visit, he must -- he

:04:23.:04:26.

described to a report into care at Boston Pilgrim Hospital as

:04:26.:04:31.

disturbing. There was a report published by the Care Quality

:04:31.:04:35.

Commission that examines how well patients are looked after. They say

:04:35.:04:40.

they have major concerns about this hospital. He in a moment we were

:04:40.:04:44.

here from the man responsible for the hospital, but first this report.

:04:44.:04:48.

He it has been a particularly torrid three months for hospital

:04:48.:04:53.

macro. Today, patients and staff will have found little to comfort

:04:53.:05:03.
:05:03.:05:03.

them. This independent body looks after health care across England.

:05:03.:05:08.

David Cameron called it a disturbing report. We are talking

:05:08.:05:14.

about basic levels of service, nutrition, food and care. According

:05:14.:05:19.

to the CQC Boston Pilgrim Hospital is not meeting the expected

:05:19.:05:24.

standards in 12 out of 16 categories. Particular concern

:05:24.:05:31.

means care and treatment is not delivered. Questions were raised

:05:31.:05:36.

about been adequate nutrition, and rehydration. Cleanliness was also

:05:36.:05:43.

an issue. It is the hospital a's owner monitoring systems which has

:05:43.:05:49.

raised particular concerns. We have decided to carry out this

:05:49.:05:54.

investigation to take a different look at the muttering processes.

:05:54.:06:01.

The hospital's problems go back to April. The first inspection found a

:06:01.:06:06.

damning report published. There was enforcement action announced.

:06:06.:06:12.

Earlier this month, Lincolnshire Police investigated allegations in

:06:12.:06:15.

to this treatment of patients. The hospital is carrying out its own

:06:15.:06:20.

separate investigation over claims that Brian Smith, who was dying

:06:20.:06:25.

from pneumonia, was denied basic nursing care. His treatment was not

:06:25.:06:29.

unusual according to this patient's mother. Her mother, Laura has spent

:06:29.:06:38.

many months in hospital. It is attention to detail, it concerns me.

:06:38.:06:43.

There is concern over food, drink and bedpans. We asked the bedpans,

:06:43.:06:48.

it took so long to bring them. Inspectors are due back at the

:06:48.:06:53.

hospital next to me, managers have just a month to sort out the main

:06:53.:06:58.

concerns of all face serious sanctions.

:06:58.:07:03.

Andrew North is the cheeselike that -- chief executive of the trust

:07:03.:07:10.

which runs Boston Pilgrim Hospital. I spoke to him earlier. The first

:07:10.:07:14.

thing I would like to say was that we were extremely upset about what

:07:14.:07:24.
:07:24.:07:27.

did CQC found -- be CQC bound. I would like to apologise to anyone

:07:27.:07:34.

who feels let down. We have been working extremely hard to try and

:07:34.:07:40.

address those concerns. We clearly have not made sufficient progress.

:07:40.:07:45.

We are committed to improving the quality of services we deliver. We

:07:45.:07:54.

will not relent in that effort. We want the right level of service. We

:07:54.:07:58.

want to be consistent in all parts of the hospital. The Prime Minister

:07:58.:08:02.

has said these findings are disturbing, that is hugely

:08:02.:08:10.

embarrassing for you. He is he right to be disturbed? We were all

:08:10.:08:15.

very disappointed. We realise we have a huge amount of work to give

:08:15.:08:21.

up the right quality of service. We are absolutely committed. If we

:08:21.:08:26.

have made some important changes. We have introduced different ways

:08:26.:08:34.

of working. The CQC have acknowledged that. There has been

:08:34.:08:44.
:08:44.:08:48.

many improvements. One of the steps was getting nurses to ask questions.

:08:48.:08:57.

They are basic questions, Janet and John at staff, this should be there

:08:57.:09:07.
:09:07.:09:07.

all the time. We want a systematic structure. We wanted to be

:09:08.:09:16.

absolutely satisfied that the care of patients is primary. We want to

:09:16.:09:24.

be patient to be satisfied. We want the evidence to be recorded. We

:09:24.:09:31.

want the revised approach is to been applied consistently -- to be

:09:31.:09:41.
:09:41.:09:41.

applied consistently. Two nurses have the basic commonsense? -- do

:09:41.:09:51.
:09:51.:09:53.

and nurses. I am not convinced of that. They wanted to deliver the

:09:53.:10:00.

best quality service. On the vast majority other occasions the

:10:00.:10:06.

service to meet the requirements and expectations of the patients.

:10:06.:10:11.

We did not have that level of service consistently. I can only

:10:11.:10:21.
:10:21.:10:21.

apologise for that. I can reassure people that we are absolutely

:10:21.:10:26.

focused on improving the quality of service we provide. We want

:10:26.:10:34.

patients to receive these -- to receive the service they deserve.

:10:34.:10:39.

Would you be happy if a member of your family was treated in the

:10:39.:10:46.

hospital? I am not happy if any user of a hospital is let down as a

:10:46.:10:50.

consequence of the service we provide. Whether or not they are

:10:50.:10:59.

related to me does not change my expectation, nor my determination

:10:59.:11:04.

to ensure that we move to a situation where people can expect a

:11:04.:11:09.

consistent a level of service. Thank you very much indeed.

:11:09.:11:19.
:11:19.:11:19.

There you are. I would like to throw this one open. What is your

:11:19.:11:29.
:11:29.:11:32.

experience of that hospital. Do you have any thoughts on this? Contact

:11:45.:11:47.

Detectives investigating the death of Grimsby man Adam Vincent have

:11:47.:11:50.

found a human leg. Police divers are searching Scawby Brook near

:11:50.:11:53.

Brigg after the discovery yesterday. The partial remains of Adam Vincent

:11:53.:11:55.

were recovered from Tetney Lock near Grimsby in March, six people

:11:55.:12:03.

have been charged in connection with his death. Hull City Council

:12:03.:12:07.

has approved an amendment to its budget. They say it will save money

:12:07.:12:14.

on industrial -- on payouts. Police teams are searching

:12:14.:12:21.

woodlands around Pocklington. A a 62-year-old man who has Parkinson's

:12:21.:12:28.

disease has vanished. He was last seen the body when free walk. --

:12:28.:12:34.

last seen many when pre-war car. Plans to extend and animal breeding

:12:34.:12:38.

centre have been rejected. B & K Universal wanted to extend their

:12:38.:12:48.
:12:48.:12:56.

centre where beagles are ready. -- are bred. There were as much...

:12:56.:13:00.

Many allies were here today. It was an application by B & K Universal

:13:00.:13:10.
:13:10.:13:11.

to extend its premises here in Grimston. They want to breed these

:13:11.:13:15.

animals for research. We have rejected this application because

:13:15.:13:21.

the roads around Grimston are not up to wit. They would have to carry

:13:21.:13:28.

the construction equipment. It is a monumental decision. It will save

:13:28.:13:36.

2000 dogs from a life are suffering. The council have rejected this on

:13:36.:13:46.
:13:46.:13:46.

traffic concerns. You did not win? -- did not win? It was down to

:13:47.:13:54.

everything including tourism. Tata Steel refused to comment, but they

:13:54.:13:59.

did make a point that there is a national need for animals to be

:13:59.:14:03.

bred for research in the UK. They said that if the application was

:14:03.:14:08.

refused they would be forced to house beagles in their old

:14:08.:14:13.

buildings which needed modernisation. They can of course

:14:13.:14:16.

appeal the decision. But campaigners to see this as their

:14:16.:14:26.
:14:26.:14:29.

victory in a fight to stop testing Thank you for watching. Still to

:14:29.:14:36.

come: mums join campaigners helping to keep a Children's Heart Unit

:14:36.:14:40.

open. Lincolnshire's most normal person.

:14:40.:14:48.

This artist makes her final choice. Tonight's picture is looking across

:14:48.:14:55.

the Humber at Cleethorpes. Another picture tomorrow night at the same

:14:55.:15:03.

time. You didn't make the short list for most normal person then?

:15:03.:15:13.
:15:13.:15:19.

list for most normal person then? I'm not in Lincolnshire.

:15:19.:15:26.

The headlines for the next 24 hours at is an unsettled one. Through to

:15:26.:15:34.

tomorrow, scattered showers. Look at this for a summer time chart,

:15:34.:15:39.

more like something from November. That pushes across and by Saturday

:15:39.:15:45.

it should be out into the North Sea, so perhaps another 10 or 15 mm of

:15:45.:15:51.

rain before it clears on Saturday. You can see some clouds on the

:15:52.:15:59.

satellite pictures. Those are sharp showers. Any scattered showers

:15:59.:16:05.

should largely die away. All parts becoming dry with clear spells.

:16:06.:16:15.
:16:16.:16:16.

Temperatures down to around eight Celsius. The sun will rise at 429 A

:16:16.:16:25.

M. It should be a nice start today, more stars will be dry and bright

:16:25.:16:29.

with a fair amount of sunshine. You will find a few showers breaking

:16:30.:16:34.

out by the end of the morning. Through the afternoon, cloud

:16:34.:16:41.

thickens and rain threatens from the south. The best of the weather

:16:41.:16:44.

will be at first tomorrow, top temperatures coming in around 17

:16:44.:16:51.

Celsius. Moderate south-west wind will back off by tomorrow evening.

:16:51.:16:56.

I thoroughly wet Friday evening and Friday night and the first part of

:16:56.:17:02.

Saturday morning, around 10 mm of rain, great news for farmers.

:17:02.:17:07.

Sunday maybe the best of the days but still wet.

:17:07.:17:13.

I can tell you how embarrassing it was last night after those comments

:17:13.:17:17.

about the residents' association. You're in my bad books, see you

:17:17.:17:22.

tomorrow. Parents and Lincolnshire have been

:17:22.:17:30.

rallying against the closure of a children's heart surgery unit.

:17:30.:17:32.

Campaigners say they'll have to travel to either Birmingham or

:17:32.:17:35.

London if the centre in Leicester closes. But the NHS says the

:17:35.:17:38.

quality of care will be improved if fewer hospitals carry out heart

:17:38.:17:40.

operations on children. Simon Spark reports.

:17:40.:17:42.

Improvements to children's heart surgery within the NHS comes at a

:17:42.:17:45.

price, a price of cutting the number of heart surgery centres

:17:45.:17:48.

across the country, and these are the latest people who don't want to

:17:48.:17:53.

see that happen. They're rallying against proposals that could see

:17:53.:17:56.

the closure of the Children's Heart Unit in Leicester, used by many

:17:56.:18:01.

Lincolnshire families. Families like the Nortons, Whose son Harry

:18:01.:18:04.

was diagnosed with heart problems when he was still in his mother's

:18:04.:18:08.

womb. He had his first emergency operation when he was just 15 days

:18:08.:18:18.
:18:18.:18:19.

old. He has had two heart operations already. He will have a

:18:19.:18:23.

third one at around four years old. You cannot describe what you go

:18:23.:18:27.

through. Your emotions are on a roller-coaster. The whole future is

:18:27.:18:32.

completely changed. Because of Harry's need for future care his

:18:32.:18:35.

parents are angry that they'll lose the staff that have repeatedly

:18:35.:18:41.

saved their son's life. Just last month it was the same reaction for

:18:41.:18:44.

the people who use the centre in Leeds, Even the surgeons have gone

:18:44.:18:51.

public with their feelings. There saying there is no danger to our

:18:51.:18:59.

children but there is. There saying that people have to move to the

:18:59.:19:03.

doctors, but it is the doctors to have to move to the people. He

:19:03.:19:07.

should have to move to people. NHS want to concentrate children's

:19:07.:19:10.

heart surgery in fewer places. For people in Lincolnshire the closure

:19:10.:19:12.

of the Leicester centre would mean travelling to Birmingham or London,

:19:12.:19:19.

the centre in Leeds is also under threat. The Children's Heart

:19:19.:19:22.

Federation is convinced there is a need for change. More children

:19:22.:19:26.

would survive under would be better care afterwards as it would provide

:19:26.:19:28.

better specialisation for the really complex surgery we're

:19:28.:19:32.

talking about. The current consultation will end on July 1st

:19:32.:19:40.

with a final decision expected later in the year.

:19:40.:19:42.

An East Yorkshire head teacher has described the rules governing

:19:43.:19:48.

security in schools as ludicrous. Chris would -- Chris Goodwin runs

:19:48.:19:52.

Beverley Grammar School and claims OFSTED's rules are turning schools

:19:52.:19:57.

into prisons. This comes after an increasing number applying to local

:19:57.:20:02.

councils were up permission to put up 6 ft-high fences.

:20:02.:20:08.

It is designed to keep children in and intruders out. At this school,

:20:08.:20:14.

and defence as a sign of the times. Not ideal, says the school's head

:20:14.:20:20.

teacher, but something that gives him and the staff peace of mind.

:20:20.:20:22.

him and the staff peace of mind. means you don't have to go around

:20:22.:20:30.

looking for dangerous items. You used to get these smash down and

:20:30.:20:35.

things smashed up. Hundreds of schools could soon be surrounded by

:20:35.:20:39.

these rings of steel, a drastic measure that opponents say is going

:20:39.:20:46.

too far. This sense has been recently put in but they do not

:20:46.:20:52.

think it is high enough to meet OFSTED standards. Chris Goodwin

:20:53.:20:55.

blames this health and safety on OFSTED inspectors. He things that

:20:55.:20:59.

have left schools with an over- cautious culture which hinders

:20:59.:21:05.

children's education. We see this in the way science is being taught

:21:05.:21:12.

and then people worry over not attracting scientists. Boys in

:21:12.:21:17.

particular are not being dragged down, and health and safety is

:21:17.:21:23.

impacting on their experiences. OFSTED says it is local authorities

:21:23.:21:32.

that work with schools to implement security. Because of the low levels

:21:32.:21:37.

of vandalism, break-ins and so on they are experiencing, it is a

:21:37.:21:40.

constant drain and their resources. It is better to spend some money on

:21:40.:21:47.

the resources now it than later on. It is predicted more safety

:21:47.:21:51.

measures in schools will follow. One head teacher says he can no

:21:51.:21:54.

longer carry around a cup of coffee around the school for fear of

:21:54.:21:59.

children being scalded. Another one you might like to

:21:59.:22:03.

comment on. Joining me in the studio as Dr Jeremy Dunning Davis

:22:03.:22:06.

from the Campaign for Real Education. Fences around schools:

:22:07.:22:12.

what you think? I think it is completely over-the-top and I can

:22:12.:22:16.

well understand the concerns of some parents. They think it is

:22:16.:22:21.

turning schools into prisons or worse. The council has had more

:22:21.:22:25.

requests for these offences. Surely it is better than a drain on

:22:25.:22:28.

resources caused by vandalism? goes back to the question of

:22:28.:22:35.

discipline. Everything Mr Goodwin has said is absolutely true and

:22:35.:22:40.

should be noted. If only the give authority back to be teachers,

:22:40.:22:44.

allow them to impose discipline in schools, it will cut out problems

:22:44.:22:50.

later on. It is the schools that are asking for it. East Riding says

:22:50.:22:56.

it has never had so many requests. I am just amazed. To have a

:22:56.:23:01.

boundary fence to stop stray dogs coming in... The sort defence we

:23:01.:23:04.

saw earlier in the programme, I thought was completely over the top

:23:04.:23:09.

and unnecessary. If it saves money on vandalism that money could do

:23:09.:23:19.

used in the school. It is not the teachers' fault it is that people

:23:19.:23:23.

controlling the teachers. Local authorities get so worked up, and

:23:23.:23:27.

they think Mr Goodwin has said there getting worked up about

:23:27.:23:32.

paedophiles, which is a problem but how big a problem? Has OFSTED got

:23:32.:23:38.

it wrong? I think of said get it wrong over virtually everything. If

:23:38.:23:42.

you if placed OFSTED with Mr Goodwin I think it would be an

:23:42.:23:49.

improvement. Thank you for coming The draw has been made for the

:23:49.:23:54.

first round of football's Carling Cup. Hull City had been drawn at

:23:54.:23:58.

home well Scunthorpe face an away trip to Accrington Stanley. The

:23:58.:24:05.

matches take place on 2nd August. We can reveal tonight that link

:24:05.:24:08.

injure's most normal person has been revealed as part of another

:24:08.:24:13.

project. The hunt was on for Mr or Mrs Normal since March. She has

:24:13.:24:22.

been found: 53-year-old Ellen Clayton of Lincoln.

:24:22.:24:27.

It is an almost Thursday for Ellen Clayton. She is a grandmother and

:24:27.:24:32.

great-grandmother, with all the normal mementos around the house.

:24:32.:24:41.

They're my granddaughter's, and those are my grandson's. Ellen does

:24:41.:24:47.

her make-up and get her normal bus at 12:30pm, a walk that takes 10

:24:47.:24:52.

minutes. She is so normal, she has been given a special title: Mrs

:24:52.:24:58.

Normal. There were students around and they took no notice but became

:24:58.:25:05.

and approached me. They asked me what I thought and if it was normal.

:25:05.:25:12.

What I could do and what I was able to do. No matter how old you are,
