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


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


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


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


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


measures are not good for children. Following the hunt ball

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


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


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


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


/ in the Budget. The Red Arrows welcomed the Prime


Minister to Lincolnshire. David Cameron was given the honour of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Why is it this policy so controversial? He committed to


spending �800 million on vaccines for children in the poorest


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


amount being made by Lincolnshire County Council over the next four


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


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


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


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


described to a report into care at Boston Pilgrim Hospital as


disturbing. There was a report published by the Care Quality


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


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


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


He it has been a particularly torrid three months for hospital


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


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


David Cameron called it a disturbing report. We are talking


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


to the CQC Boston Pilgrim Hospital is not meeting the expected


standards in 12 out of 16 categories. Particular concern


means care and treatment is not delivered. Questions were raised


about been adequate nutrition, and rehydration. Cleanliness was also


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


raised particular concerns. We have decided to carry out this


investigation to take a different look at the muttering processes.


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


damning report published. There was enforcement action announced.


Earlier this month, Lincolnshire Police investigated allegations in


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


separate investigation over claims that Brian Smith, who was dying


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


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


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


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


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


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


concerns of all face serious sanctions.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


has said these findings are disturbing, that is hugely


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


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


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


have made some important changes. We have introduced different ways


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


best quality service. On the vast majority other occasions the


service to meet the requirements and expectations of the patients.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

Detectives investigating the death of Grimsby man Adam Vincent have


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


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


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


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


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


on industrial -- on payouts. Police teams are searching


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


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

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


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


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


animals for research. We have rejected this application because


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


refused they would be forced to house beagles in their old


buildings which needed modernisation. They can of course


appeal the decision. But campaigners to see this as their


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


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


open. Lincolnshire's most normal person.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


satellite pictures. Those are sharp showers. Any scattered showers


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Sunday maybe the best of the days but still wet.


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


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


tomorrow. Parents and Lincolnshire have been


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


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


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


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


operations on children. Simon Spark reports.


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


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


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


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


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


Lincolnshire families. Families like the Nortons, Whose son Harry


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


better specialisation for the really complex surgery we're


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


with a final decision expected later in the year.


An East Yorkshire head teacher has described the rules governing


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


have left schools with an over- cautious culture which hinders


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


and then people worry over not attracting scientists. Boys in


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


impacting on their experiences. OFSTED says it is local authorities


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


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


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


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


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


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


children being scalded. Another one you might like to


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


from the Campaign for Real Education. Fences around schools:


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


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


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


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


resources caused by vandalism? goes back to the question of


discipline. Everything Mr Goodwin has said is absolutely true and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


they think Mr Goodwin has said there getting worked up about


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


you do what you are able to do and what you enjoy doing. Then it is


down to her normal routine, I game of bowls with a friend, who as far


as I can tell a quite normal. rubbish today, not so bad normally.


Over at half-time cup of tea, I asked the question: is she normal?


Do you think I'm normal? Nick -- no. I think she deserves it, she is a


nice person and good luck to her. shall always be normal and be


myself. There you have it, Ellen Clayton truly is Mrs Normal of


Lincolnshire. You couldn't make it up. The time


is 6:35pm. Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines:


New figures show a sharp drop in retail sales. The figures for May


are down by 1.5% after an increase during April.


David Cameron faces criticism on a trip to Lincolnshire over cuts to


the armed forces while overseas aid goes up. The Prime Minister says


it's right to keep his promise to some of the poorest people in the


world. A mostly dry, bright start with


some sunshine. Scattered showers developing through the morning,


merging to give longer spells of rain by the end of the day. Maximum


temperature 18C. Quite a big response to the story on Pilgrim


Hospital. I felt very cared for in my stay in


hospital. Not just do nothing staff, my consultant treated me like the


real person. This from Geraldine: I was not surprised to hear the


shortcomings are Pilgrim Hospital. These places are no stranger to bad


management and lack of cleanliness. When my husband was in the clinical


admission section, I had to clean up soiled dressings Wycherley on


the 4th and at last patient. It is a good staff there but their


efforts are dwarfed. This from Twitter: I had my baby in programme
