Good evening. Welcome to Look North.

:00:05.:00:10.

The headlines. The battle for school places, up

:00:10.:00:13.

with some children facing a seven mile trip without their parents to

:00:13.:00:18.

get to lessons are. I am not sure of many parents that

:00:18.:00:22.

would be happy to park their daughter in a taxi to be taken to

:00:22.:00:26.

school, maybe five miles away. A man behind bars after raping a

:00:27.:00:32.

woman 32 years ago. The protests heading to Scunthorpe,

:00:32.:00:39.

but one MP claims it is a waste of time.

:00:39.:00:42.

And, the Lincolnshire based western star hoping to light up the

:00:43.:00:46.

Beverley music festival. And, joined me for the all-

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:00:59.

important weekend weather forecast, Good evening.

:00:59.:01:03.

It could be in brothers and sisters being sent to separate and

:01:03.:01:08.

different primary schools, and some young children having to make

:01:08.:01:12.

journeys of up to seven miles without their parents. Local

:01:12.:01:16.

councils have said it is sorry to scores of parents in Brough, a

:01:16.:01:20.

struggling to find a primary school place for their children. Last

:01:20.:01:25.

month, it was Perez in Lincolnshire who were facing a similar dilemma.

:01:25.:01:32.

-- parents. For the last few years, these

:01:32.:01:36.

children have been at playgroups and nursery with friends from Prof.

:01:36.:01:42.

Come September, that will change. The local primary schools are full,

:01:42.:01:46.

so they are being split up. It is not fair, because I asked when

:01:46.:01:50.

Harry was two if it could put his name down, so he would be

:01:50.:01:54.

guaranteed a place, but we cannot do that anymore. I went through the

:01:54.:01:59.

admissions system, I did exactly what I should do, and because I

:01:59.:02:03.

love that bit further away than my friend down the street, I have not

:02:03.:02:10.

got in. They are not alone, 21 children cannot get a place at

:02:10.:02:15.

three schools. In this area, we have a rising birth rate, together

:02:15.:02:19.

with significant housing developments. That has meant that

:02:19.:02:23.

the number of children in the catchment areas has exceeded the

:02:23.:02:27.

capacity of the schools. Should you be apologising to those 21

:02:27.:02:33.

children? We feel sorry for them. I can appreciate their situation. I

:02:33.:02:37.

sympathise with them. It is not a good position. We will work with

:02:37.:02:41.

the families and ensure that they do have access to a good school and

:02:41.:02:44.

transport to get there. children who have missed out may

:02:44.:02:49.

have to travel more than seven miles to their new school in North

:02:49.:02:53.

Cape, South Cave and North Ferriby, and if parents do not drive, some

:02:53.:02:59.

children will get taxes alone. has got severe asthma, and it

:02:59.:03:06.

worries me, if he has an attack in the car, will the taxi driver be

:03:06.:03:10.

prepared to administer his drugs? Of the three schools, this one is

:03:10.:03:16.

the only one which cannot -- can be extended, but that takes time, so

:03:16.:03:20.

over the coming years, more children face not having a place. A

:03:20.:03:25.

lack of school places is a national issue. Parents in Lincolnshire have

:03:25.:03:31.

experienced similar problems. But with more houses being built in

:03:31.:03:37.

Brough, the fight for limited spaces here is intensifying.

:03:37.:03:41.

It is a problem in more than just one area. If you are a parent

:03:42.:03:47.

facing this problem, get in touch. How should planners deal with the

:03:47.:03:57.
:03:57.:04:05.

growing numbers of people? -- We look forward to hearing from you.

:04:05.:04:12.

In a moment,... How pigeons are helping to teach

:04:12.:04:18.

teenagers who face being thrown out of class.

:04:18.:04:23.

30 years after he rated teenager, a man is tonight finally beginning a

:04:23.:04:28.

jail sentence -- rape a teenager. Michael Tomlinson admitted the

:04:28.:04:33.

attack on the 17-year-old woman which happened in 1978. Today a

:04:33.:04:39.

judge jailed him for three years. The case was reopened last year by

:04:39.:04:44.

a specialist team from Humberside Police, who investigate long

:04:44.:04:49.

unsolved cases. They said that scientific advances and the DNA

:04:49.:04:53.

database are to thank for the breakthrough.

:04:53.:04:59.

He kept a terrible secret for 30 years. On a summer night in 1978,

:04:59.:05:02.

Michael Tomlinson dragged a 17- year-old woman into a field. He

:05:02.:05:08.

pushed her to the ground, covered her face, Prater, and ran off. He

:05:08.:05:13.

spent the last 26 years working as a taxi-driver in Grimsby. Today, he

:05:13.:05:17.

was punished for his crime. It is the oldest case we have ever dealt

:05:17.:05:23.

with. We have dealt with cases that are quite old, but 33 years is the

:05:23.:05:28.

oldest I can think. Samples containing DNA were collected from

:05:28.:05:33.

the crime scene. They were stored away. In 2004, Michael Tomlinson

:05:33.:05:37.

was arrested for common assault. His DNA was put on the national

:05:37.:05:42.

database. Detectives revisited the case in 2010. Forensic experts used

:05:42.:05:47.

the original samples to build a DNA profile of the attacker. It matched

:05:47.:05:52.

his. Police began rebuilding the case. The court heard that

:05:52.:05:57.

forensics were vital to solve and this case. The judge told him, DNA

:05:57.:06:02.

proved it was you that committed the crime. You have known that, one

:06:02.:06:07.

day, the police would come knocking at your door. They did. The lady

:06:07.:06:14.

was walking home to Cleethorpes. This investigation was part of an

:06:14.:06:19.

ongoing review of unsolved sexual offences. The scientific unit that

:06:19.:06:25.

helped solve this case is closing. This is where the incident happened.

:06:25.:06:28.

The government announced the Forensic Science Service was losing

:06:28.:06:33.

money and would have to close by March. In the forensic stages of

:06:33.:06:36.

the inquiry, we would not be able to proceed without the material

:06:36.:06:40.

that they hold, without the word that they can do in the scientific

:06:40.:06:46.

field and the advice and guidance they can give us in relation to

:06:46.:06:50.

developing good, it would be inconceivable to do this work

:06:50.:06:53.

without the forensic services. Discussions are wondering about the

:06:53.:06:58.

future of this work, but Michael Tomlinson and several other sex

:06:58.:07:05.

offenders would still be under the radar without it. -- discussions

:07:05.:07:09.

are ongoing. A mountain rescue team has been

:07:09.:07:14.

called in to help police search for a missing man, who has Parkinson's

:07:14.:07:18.

disease. David Hewitson was last seen on Monday, when he left home

:07:18.:07:22.

in Pocklington to go for a walk. Searches have been carried out in

:07:22.:07:25.

nearby woodland. A councillor has been suspended

:07:25.:07:31.

after he accused a colleague of lying. Neil Murray, a Labour member

:07:32.:07:35.

of the city of Lincoln Council, clashed with Conservative

:07:35.:07:39.

councillor Mark Jones last year. They had discussed proposals to

:07:39.:07:41.

reintroduce racing to Lincoln's was common.

:07:41.:07:45.

The company behind plans to extend an animal breeding centre say they

:07:46.:07:52.

will appeal the decision or resubmit an amended application. P

:07:52.:07:56.

and Kate universal want to expand their centre at Princeton, where

:07:56.:08:00.

because our bread. Yesterday, planners turned them down because

:08:00.:08:06.

of concerns about the construction traffic.

:08:06.:08:10.

Teenagers in north Lincolnshire in danger of being excluded from

:08:10.:08:14.

school are being offered an alternative lesson. In pigeon

:08:14.:08:23.

fancying. It is an idea in Epworth, to help troubled youngsters.

:08:23.:08:27.

How do you handle troubled teenagers? Police in Scunthorpe

:08:27.:08:31.

think handling pigeons could be the answer. Younger people who often

:08:31.:08:36.

find it difficult in the classroom have turned to this project, giving

:08:36.:08:41.

them a chance to learn about pigeon fancying and other academic skills.

:08:41.:08:45.

They are learning how to deal with other people, other adults, things

:08:45.:08:50.

like maths and geography, where the birds are flying from, and what

:08:50.:08:56.

they are doing in terms of average speed, and the times. It was

:08:56.:09:01.

started by this Humberside Police officer, a lifelong pigeon fancier.

:09:01.:09:05.

He says it has proved successful elsewhere. I read an article about

:09:05.:09:10.

a similar project which had engaged a group of young people in Scotland,

:09:10.:09:14.

and had some good results with regards to reducing anti-social

:09:14.:09:18.

behaviour and crime. One teenager says it is already teaching him a

:09:18.:09:24.

thing or two. It is a learning thing for me, learning about these

:09:24.:09:29.

pigeons, I have to control them. Former heavyweight boxing champion

:09:29.:09:34.

Mike Tyson has revealed that it was hit love affair with pigeons that

:09:34.:09:39.

kick-started his career in the rink. If it is good enough for him, that

:09:39.:09:42.

is her but this project will help divert teenagers in north

:09:42.:09:47.

Lincolnshire away from anti-social behaviour -- it is hoped that.

:09:48.:09:56.

I have been speaking to Brian Cheesman, a child psychologist.

:09:56.:09:59.

Lots of young people have looked after pigeons and other various

:09:59.:10:04.

pets, but we are talking about difficult kids and dysfunctional

:10:04.:10:08.

children and young people who have had quite a difficult life. What

:10:08.:10:15.

they have to remember, everybody, whether you are the raging

:10:15.:10:21.

psychopath or not, everybody has a caring element to them. The to be

:10:21.:10:26.

given the opportunity to look after pigeons and care for them, that

:10:26.:10:30.

raises the elements of care. Many people will say, this is great,

:10:30.:10:34.

they do some bad behaviour, so they get rewarded with something that

:10:34.:10:38.

many people would like to have a go. Yes, I have heard that so many

:10:38.:10:45.

times. You are giving Good Easter baddies. But it is really important

:10:46.:10:51.

that we try all sorts of avenues when dealing with young people.

:10:51.:10:57.

of these things, go-karting, they all cost money. Is it money well

:10:57.:11:01.

spent, or is it pampering those who have done wrong? It is not

:11:01.:11:05.

pampering. Most children and young people would not mind the idea of

:11:06.:11:10.

being allowed to care for something. What this is going to do, it will

:11:10.:11:14.

provide the caring element, kids being able to demonstrate that, and

:11:14.:11:20.

it helps raise self-esteem. Most young cheers who have got into

:11:20.:11:25.

trouble, sometimes minimal trouble, it is about self-esteem -- most

:11:25.:11:29.

youngsters. They do not need to look for trouble to give themselves

:11:29.:11:38.

self-esteem. So, you can do some bad, and you can look after

:11:38.:11:45.

pigeons! I am not so sure that kids will think like that. It is horses-

:11:45.:11:49.

for-courses. They are not going to provide pigeon fancying for all

:11:49.:11:53.

sorts of children are. They are quite selective, the individuals

:11:53.:12:00.

that do this work. The thoughts of Brian Cheesman. I

:12:00.:12:05.

am sure you have got your own thoughts. The schemes, are they a

:12:05.:12:09.

reward for bad behaviour, or are they justified if they get young

:12:09.:12:19.
:12:19.:12:32.

people back on the straight and Fell to four watching. -- thank you

:12:32.:12:36.

for watching. A day to remember, these

:12:36.:12:40.

Lincolnshire pupils meet Prince Edward on a special visit.

:12:40.:12:45.

And, I am live at the Beverley folk Festival, it is its 20th year, it

:12:45.:12:55.
:12:55.:12:57.

promises to be a great musical We will be back to the festival in

:12:57.:13:04.

just a moment. Tonight, Hereford to Graf in from

:13:04.:13:14.
:13:14.:13:14.

Barbara and Arthur. Look at that. - - we have a photograph. That was

:13:15.:13:19.

Friday night in June. Can you believe it? They say, we did not

:13:19.:13:29.
:13:29.:13:31.

get any warning of this. I don't I suggest that showers will be

:13:31.:13:37.

thundery with heavy deposits! heavy deposits. Maybe you would

:13:37.:13:41.

just like to read tonight's forecast and we will listen

:13:41.:13:46.

carefully for accuracy. I would like to cheer people up. I have

:13:46.:13:55.

just written a blog. The sun is quite quiet at the moment so could

:13:55.:14:03.

it mean we are in for more cold. Us? Some light reading for the

:14:03.:14:08.

weekend! And you can write to me on Twitter. Let's look at the headline.

:14:08.:14:13.

It is very unsettled indeed. There will be some rain around tonight

:14:13.:14:17.

and tomorrow, we are hoping it will slowly move northwards but we will

:14:17.:14:24.

be left with showers if it does. This is next week's weather system,

:14:24.:14:31.

which will push across us. Showers and longer spells of rain. We are

:14:31.:14:36.

being invaded from the South and West, and we already have rain

:14:36.:14:40.

crossing the Humber and it will be in Beverley for that folk Festival.

:14:40.:14:44.

Whatever way you look at it, those showers will emerge to give longer

:14:44.:14:51.

outbreaks of rain, so not a nice night. Temperatures will be down to

:14:51.:14:58.

10 or 11 degrees Celsius. The sun will rise in the morning at about

:14:58.:15:04.

4:29am. Of these are the high water times. We'll off to a wet start

:15:04.:15:13.

with outbreaks of rain, locally heavy and prolonged. -- we are off.

:15:13.:15:17.

Things in Lincolnshire will brighten up but there will be

:15:17.:15:22.

showers. Hopefully, it will improve, but whatever way you look at it,

:15:22.:15:28.

and unsettled day. Temperatures at about 17, 18 degrees. Showers for

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:39.

Rest assured, we have recorded it. I am not going down that route! I

:15:39.:15:44.

will be out of a job. Local MPs and business leaders have

:15:44.:15:48.

condemned plans for a protest against government cuts in north

:15:48.:15:53.

London church. The group UK Uncut say that their demonstration in of

:15:53.:15:56.

Scunthorpe is about plans to reduce the opening hours of local

:15:56.:16:01.

libraries. It is something the council denies.

:16:01.:16:05.

They describe themselves as a non- island protest group but they aim

:16:05.:16:12.

to disrupt trading on the high street. -- non-of Ireland. They

:16:12.:16:15.

will be campaigning about government cutbacks and

:16:15.:16:24.

highlighting the effect on local services. I think any action that

:16:24.:16:31.

highlights the excesses of banking taxes is absolutely valid.

:16:31.:16:35.

their visit is not being welcomed by his civic leaders, with the area

:16:35.:16:38.

being hit so badly in the economic downturn and the recent

:16:38.:16:42.

announcement of job cuts. It is feared UK Uncut Corps tried to end

:16:42.:16:48.

List shoppers during their protests. People understand estate the

:16:48.:16:53.

economy is in. It is fanciful for people to run around saying that

:16:54.:16:58.

there don't need to be cuts. I know that local people are far too

:16:58.:17:02.

sensible to get mixed up with extreme groups like this. It is a

:17:02.:17:08.

view echoed by the town's Chamber of Commerce. If they took a protest

:17:09.:17:12.

in a different direction, it gives people a certain unease and I think

:17:12.:17:15.

people will stay away from Scunthorpe town centre tomorrow

:17:15.:17:20.

afternoon. This is where the protest is due to begin at 3pm. It

:17:20.:17:23.

is not known how many protesters are expected but RNAS Culdrose says

:17:23.:17:27.

there has been a great deal of interest on social networks sights

:17:27.:17:32.

on the internet. In the town centre today, thereby hopes the protest

:17:32.:17:38.

will pass without incident. -- there are hopes. We are not

:17:38.:17:43.

expecting much violence so hopefully it will be peaceful. The

:17:43.:17:47.

shoppers should be able to go about their business normally. As long as

:17:48.:17:53.

we don't get anything of Ireland. We are not very happy about

:17:53.:18:01.

protesters who simply seem to be saying, how is it for us. We take

:18:01.:18:06.

it all and say nothing, but I think it would be a good thing.

:18:06.:18:09.

Humberside Police said they are not expecting violence and that they

:18:09.:18:14.

will monitor the situation. The chief executive of the Pilgrim

:18:14.:18:18.

Hospital in Boston has insisted he will not resign despite a damning

:18:18.:18:21.

report into standards of care. Hospital managers admit there is

:18:22.:18:26.

still work to do following a report by the Care Quality Commission

:18:26.:18:31.

which examines how well patients are looked after. It still says it

:18:31.:18:36.

has major concerns about Boston. have not made sufficient progress

:18:36.:18:39.

but we do remain committed to focusing on improving the quality

:18:39.:18:44.

of services we deliver and we will not relent in that effort until we

:18:44.:18:48.

are satisfied that we have got the right level of service and quality

:18:48.:18:56.

of service consistently all parts of the hospital all of the time.

:18:56.:19:02.

Once again, a huge response on this story. Simon says, I worked at the

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:17.

programme as a nurse and left due This is from a nurse who works in

:19:17.:19:27.
:19:27.:19:36.

Thank you very much indeed for those.

:19:36.:19:40.

Prince Edward has been in Lincolnshire today. He last came to

:19:40.:19:46.

the county two years ago have been his role as Air Commodore at an RAF

:19:46.:19:52.

base. He met two women here who have been awarded MBEs for their

:19:52.:20:00.

work. With cheering children and flags

:20:00.:20:06.

snapping in the breeze, the town of Kirton in Lindsey welcomed a very

:20:06.:20:10.

special Bisset -- visitor. His Royal Highness the end of Wessex

:20:10.:20:14.

arrived to open the refurbished Town Hall. And he charmed the

:20:14.:20:19.

crowds into the bargain. We were talking about school. What subject

:20:19.:20:27.

we liked. He is very tall, isn't he? It has been lovely, worth

:20:27.:20:33.

coming out for. The Town Hall is more than 100 years old but it had

:20:33.:20:37.

fallen into disrepair. His Royal Highness met some of the local

:20:37.:20:41.

volunteers who had been working hard to save it. I think it has

:20:41.:20:44.

brought the community much closer together. A huge community effort

:20:44.:20:49.

to get it going and to get the money. When I got seriously

:20:49.:20:54.

involved, the upper floor, the first floor hall, had been closed

:20:54.:20:58.

because the ceiling was falling down. Damp and weather had caused

:20:58.:21:03.

it to fall into decay. I felt it was a very important building and a

:21:03.:21:12.

great pity that it was falling into disrepair. Today's visit is

:21:12.:21:16.

recognition for the huge efforts of the local community, efforts that

:21:16.:21:22.

have already seen a few volunteers become MPs. So now the Town Hall

:21:22.:21:26.

has been returned to his former glory and it is hoped it will bring

:21:26.:21:33.

up -- bring real benefits to the wider community in this market town.

:21:33.:21:38.

What more could you want? Prince Edward and Jake Zuckerman in one

:21:38.:21:43.

report. Lizzie Simmonds has kept her

:21:43.:21:48.

Olympic dreams on-track by keeping her season's best in of the 200

:21:48.:21:53.

metres backstroke. She was the second-fastest time in the world

:21:53.:21:57.

this year. On to cricket, a Yorkshire are

:21:57.:22:04.

taking on Lancashire in a match tonight. Yorkshire are batting

:22:04.:22:14.
:22:14.:22:15.

after Lancashire won the toss. The Football League have released

:22:15.:22:19.

next season's fixtures, with Hull City taking on Blackpool on the

:22:19.:22:27.

opening day. With the bat and the News of Scunthorpe United's games

:22:27.:22:35.

dropping to lead 1. An opening day clash will take

:22:36.:22:40.

place with Hull City. Ipswich Town are likely to include Jimmy Bullard,

:22:40.:22:49.

who played unknown with them last season. Their third game sees a

:22:49.:22:59.
:22:59.:23:01.

trip to Millet -- to Leeds United. Next up, Preston, were relegated.

:23:01.:23:07.

They will welcome Oldham Athletic. The East Yorkshire tennis player

:23:07.:23:12.

Katie O'Brien will meet Kimiko Date Krumm in the first round of

:23:12.:23:17.

Wimbledon this year. She will be looking to progress to the next

:23:17.:23:22.

round for only the second time in her career. Dan Cox meets world No.

:23:22.:23:27.
