Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:03.:00:07.

Humberside police say crime is on the up and there is worse to come

:00:07.:00:17.

as the economic downturn hits hard. If care are number of factors

:00:17.:00:21.

coming together. If anybody looks at this dispassionately they are

:00:21.:00:25.

creating the perfect storm sewer crime to rise.

:00:25.:00:28.

Firefighters say a fire which killed two people over the weekend

:00:28.:00:35.

was one of the worst they've ever seen. It is unusual to come across

:00:35.:00:39.

fires of that intensity. Super League's leading try-scorer

:00:39.:00:43.

is set to play on despite suffering an epileptic fit during a match.

:00:43.:00:45.

$NEWLINE Hand-made Heaven, the 1920s sports car travelling the

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:00:58.

It has been a hot day before along time. Join me for the details in 15

:00:58.:01:08.
:01:08.:01:09.

There has been a sharp rise in crime in Hull and a senior police

:01:09.:01:11.

officer says the worst is still to come. Humberside police say

:01:11.:01:15.

burglary is up by 30 per cent and theft from cars has gone up by more

:01:15.:01:19.

than 60 per cent over the last year. The economic downturn rather than

:01:19.:01:29.
:01:29.:01:30.

cuts to police budget is being blamed. There are fears of more

:01:30.:01:32.

misery for people living in the city.

:01:32.:01:35.

Welcome to the most burgled street in Yorkshire. The dubious accolade,

:01:35.:01:39.

that those on Hull's Ings Road estate would rather lose. People

:01:39.:01:49.
:01:49.:01:50.

like Colin, who has been burgled twice. The saddest part was my

:01:50.:01:55.

wife's jewellery box. Bennett, apart from what I used to buy her

:01:55.:02:03.

for Christmas, it was a diamond ring. When my mother died, my wife

:02:03.:02:07.

could her engagement ring in. That went. And it appears of late more

:02:07.:02:10.

people are suffering like Colin. In Hull during April and May, house

:02:10.:02:13.

burglaries rose by almost 30 per cent compared to last year. That

:02:13.:02:16.

means 93 more people have had their homes broken into. Thefts from cars

:02:16.:02:20.

were up over 63 per cent and violent crime is up by almost three

:02:20.:02:27.

per cent. It comes a year after Chief Constable Tim Hollis had to

:02:27.:02:37.
:02:37.:02:38.

look at every part of the force to save money. 140 posts were cut.

:02:38.:02:42.

There are a number of factors coming together and creating the

:02:42.:02:46.

perfect stance for crime to rise. The probation service has been

:02:46.:02:53.

slashed. We catch these people all the time, we pick them to the

:02:53.:02:57.

courts, but it is very rare that we can get in kept in custody for any

:02:57.:03:01.

lakes of times. It is a revolving door. Whether less officers equals

:03:01.:03:06.

more crime was not only been discussed in Hull today. We have

:03:06.:03:10.

been clear that there is no simple relationship. That view that we

:03:10.:03:14.

take is backed up by the Home Affairs Select Committee. We are

:03:14.:03:19.

trying to get our members on board to speak to the MPs. We are trying

:03:19.:03:23.

to persuade their MPs to understand the impact of what is going on here.

:03:23.:03:29.

For a place like Hull, we need public sector jobs. We need a plump

:03:29.:03:33.

-- strong police force. These unwelcome figures are being blamed

:03:33.:03:35.

on cash-strapped individuals turning to crime. But when there

:03:35.:03:38.

are less bobbies on the beat, estates like this could become a

:03:38.:03:46.

Diana Johnson is the Labour MP for Hull North and shadow home affairs

:03:46.:03:52.

minister. She joins us from Westminster. As a Hull MP, what is

:03:52.:03:59.

your reaction to these crime figures? I am very worried. If

:03:59.:04:04.

these are the start of a trend of crime going up, that is very

:04:04.:04:08.

worrying for my constituents and people across Hull. It is very

:04:08.:04:13.

concerning. Humberside police say the economic conditions are to

:04:13.:04:18.

blame. Other areas have financial hardship and the crime rates have

:04:18.:04:23.

not gone up, what is going wrong in Hull? The cuts have been

:04:23.:04:29.

disproportionate across Hull. If you look at the cuts to their local

:04:29.:04:33.

authority and probation, you will see that Hull has suffered very

:04:33.:04:37.

badly. We need to wait and see if this turns into a trend but it is

:04:37.:04:42.

very worrying. Labour -- Labour would have cut benefits and police

:04:42.:04:46.

numbers if they had won as well. The situation would not have been

:04:46.:04:52.

different. That is not correct. We said we could see 12% cuts to

:04:52.:04:58.

policing. The Government has gone to 20% cuts. The front loaded it.

:04:58.:05:03.

The police and authorities have had little room for manoeuvre. We think

:05:03.:05:09.

that was wrong. 20% is too much. The Home Secretary says there is no

:05:09.:05:11.

simple relationship between crime figures and the number of police,

:05:11.:05:17.

do you think there is a link? think when you look at the figures

:05:17.:05:23.

in Hull that crime has gone down since 2002, there were more police

:05:23.:05:28.

officers. We gave them more power. I would expect you to take that

:05:28.:05:32.

line, but figures for burglary have dropped in Lincolnshire. They have

:05:32.:05:38.

also had cuts. One is wrong in Hull? There are heavier cuts in

:05:38.:05:42.

Hull. We need to wait and see how this will develop. It may be that

:05:42.:05:46.

this is just two months' work of figures. It is very worrying and I

:05:46.:05:51.

hope they will not continue. More cuts are expected from Russia

:05:51.:05:59.

police. �11 million. -- Humberside police. What should we do to keep

:05:59.:06:03.

credit in the City? The resources that have been slashed so much by

:06:03.:06:06.

the Government have got to be used as effectively as possible. I will

:06:06.:06:11.

be speaking to their Police Chief Constable of Humberside to see what

:06:11.:06:16.

we can do. We must all support each other and work together to tackle

:06:16.:06:22.

the problem. We do need adequate resources.

:06:22.:06:27.

Do you agree that crime has gone up because people have lost jobs in

:06:27.:06:31.

the City or are on benefits? Are you concerned and it falling police

:06:31.:06:35.

numbers or do you think they have enough resources? What you think?

:06:35.:06:45.
:06:45.:06:52.

If you want to e-mail, text or find In a moment:

:06:52.:06:56.

Donors are asked to help solve the financial problems faced by a world

:06:56.:07:01.

renowned theatre. A Hull businessman who collapsed

:07:01.:07:03.

whilst running in yesterday's Humber Bridge half-marathon has

:07:03.:07:06.

died. 33 year-old Matthew Good has been described by his colleagues as

:07:06.:07:10.

a generous, caring, an honest person with a great sense of humour.

:07:10.:07:13.

Mr Good was running for charity when he collapsed. He died later in

:07:13.:07:19.

hospital. A man who was unable to save his

:07:19.:07:22.

neighbours from a house fire in Hull has described the moment when

:07:22.:07:27.

he desperately tried to get them out. Danny Draper said we did what

:07:27.:07:31.

we could but it was just too late. He says he has been unable to sleep

:07:31.:07:39.

since the tragedy on Saturday which killed two people.

:07:39.:07:44.

It has been described as one of the most ferocious eye is fires the

:07:44.:07:50.

emergency services have been called to. It took the lives of a couple.

:07:50.:07:55.

Today, one of the neighbours who tried desperately to save them on

:07:55.:07:58.

Saturday morning described how flames ripped through the couple's

:07:58.:08:03.

home. By the time it took me to cross the road, it had gone from

:08:03.:08:07.

screaming to a pop window and from white smoke to black smoke and

:08:07.:08:13.

silence. That was in a matter of 30 seconds. We went up one that ladder,

:08:13.:08:19.

I thought it was the lady but it was her partner. We could not move

:08:19.:08:25.

him. The flames were coming out, the smoke was really thick and

:08:25.:08:30.

black. Worst thing I have ever seen. There was nothing they could do or

:08:30.:08:36.

what any of us could have done. It was too quick, I think she will Cup

:08:36.:08:42.

too late. Investigations are continuing into what caused his

:08:42.:08:45.

devastating fire. It is understood there were no smoke alarms fitted

:08:45.:08:48.

inside the property, something which will form part of the

:08:48.:08:53.

investigation. The fire station is stressing the importance of having

:08:53.:08:57.

their it devices inside a home. is unconfirmed whether the whole

:08:57.:09:02.

had smoke detectors or not. Fire of this ferocity takes time to develop.

:09:02.:09:06.

Having smoke detectors saves lives in gives you that critical early

:09:06.:09:11.

warning at every chance of getting out of the property. We would

:09:11.:09:15.

stress that you should have a smoke detector. Fire officers are now

:09:15.:09:20.

making door-to-door checks in this shocked community, reassuring

:09:20.:09:25.

residents and offering fire safety advice to anybody who needs it.

:09:25.:09:27.

Investigations have begun into the cause of a light aircraft crash

:09:27.:09:31.

near Grimsby. A 53-year-old local man was taken to hospital suffering

:09:31.:09:34.

from head injuries and fractures after the crash at North Cotes

:09:34.:09:37.

airfield yesterday afternoon. Officials from the Air Accident

:09:37.:09:40.

Investigation Branch have begun to examine the wreckage to try and

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:09:52.

find out what happened. I saw the aircraft approached it a airfield

:09:52.:09:55.

and apparently lose control and crashed. An ambulance was called

:09:55.:09:59.

and took their injured pilot a way, although he had managed to climb

:09:59.:10:04.

out of the wreckage himself. It is not the first crash I have seen but

:10:04.:10:10.

it is quite sickening as you never know what they injuries will be.

:10:10.:10:12.

Motorists in Lincolnshire will not be charged for on-street parking

:10:12.:10:16.

after the idea was overwhelmingly rejected. Lincolnshire county

:10:16.:10:18.

councillors today voted against scrapping free on-street parking

:10:18.:10:24.

and installing meters. New ways of paying council employed traffic

:10:24.:10:30.

wardens are now being investigated. It has been the hottest day in

:10:30.:10:36.

years with the temperature climbing up of 90 degrees and places.

:10:36.:10:38.

However, with rain to come and uncertainty about the economy,

:10:38.:10:41.

there are concerns that too is businesses are struggling. Simon

:10:41.:10:44.

Spark is in Cleethorpes for us this evening. Simon, how busy has it

:10:44.:10:54.
:10:54.:10:58.

been there? Earlier on this afternoon there

:10:58.:11:01.

were lots of families enjoying the weather here on the beach. There

:11:01.:11:06.

were a lot of children and families paddling in the sea. It has been an

:11:06.:11:11.

incredibly hot day, it has been humid and sticky. There were

:11:11.:11:16.

temperatures recorded of 32 degrees at Humberside airport. Over the

:11:16.:11:21.

next 24 hours, that's all set to change. It is coping with that on

:11:21.:11:27.

prick -- unpredictability that is the biggest challenge. You have got

:11:27.:11:34.

a bed and breakfast, you were in charge of the tourism? Yes I have a

:11:34.:11:39.

guest house. What are your concerns? It is a constant battle

:11:39.:11:44.

of attracting people to the resort. One of the main things is to make

:11:44.:11:49.

sure there are enough things for people to do. We have had a kite

:11:49.:11:54.

festival and folk Festival, all wonderful 1940s weekend up the road

:11:54.:11:59.

and a blues festival. I have spoken to people and a lot of people said

:11:59.:12:04.

it was spur-of-the-moment to come here. One couple said that when it

:12:04.:12:09.

is miserable we stay at home, that sums it up. It does. There are some

:12:09.:12:15.

people who do that. People are looking at the weather at the

:12:15.:12:21.

weekend and are breaking into guest houses. Thank you. After the

:12:21.:12:28.

weather today, this cool breeze is more than welcome.

:12:28.:12:31.

It does not sound sinister tonight. Still ahead tonight: Super League's

:12:31.:12:34.

leading try scorer suffers an epileptic fit - but his coach says

:12:34.:12:37.

he could play later this week. And handmade history - after five

:12:37.:12:40.

years in the garage the 1920s sports car driving the length of

:12:40.:12:50.
:12:50.:12:53.

Britain. Thank you for watching this Monday

:12:53.:13:03.
:13:03.:13:09.

night. This is a 4-taking in his Anybody could do your job today!

:13:09.:13:19.
:13:19.:13:29.

Carol Vorderman is going to a show, are you taking your binoculars? Let

:13:29.:13:33.

us look at the league table, you are all interested in how warm it

:13:33.:13:41.

has been. It was the hot is at Humberside airport. It has net not

:13:41.:13:48.

be so what's in July 2006. Poor old Bridlington, but if you do not like

:13:48.:13:55.

the heat it might be nice here, 19 degrees. The rest of us have been

:13:55.:14:00.

hot. There is cooler weather on the way. It is not the start of a

:14:00.:14:09.

heatwave. It will be back to square one tomorrow as the hot ear is

:14:09.:14:14.

shunted. You can see their cloud has been moving up from the south-

:14:14.:14:19.

west. There are few showers showing up on the radar. Nothing menacing

:14:19.:14:24.

at the moment, there is every chance that there will be some

:14:24.:14:30.

heavy thunderstorms. It looks like these showers will be hit and miss.

:14:30.:14:37.

Some places will miss them. Most temperatures of 14 or 15. The sun

:14:37.:14:45.

will rise in the morning at 433 A M. Those are you or high water times.

:14:45.:14:50.

It will be mostly cloudy tomorrow with some showers around. There

:14:50.:14:55.

will be some thunderstorms, but these will be well into Norfolk.

:14:55.:14:59.

You will notice a big drop in temperatures. Let us have a look at

:14:59.:15:03.

those highs. We had 32 at Humberside airport but tomorrow we

:15:03.:15:10.

are looking at 19. That is a 13 degrees Celsius drop. Sunny spells

:15:10.:15:20.
:15:20.:15:29.

And I shall polish my binoculars before the weekend! Dear think that

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:43.

Karel... Sorry about that, the time is up West --!

:15:43.:15:48.

Now, Hull Truck Theatre has suffered financially since moving

:15:48.:15:55.

to new premises. Last year, its total debt stood at �250,000. This

:15:55.:16:01.

year, it has risen to �400,000 and faces cuts in the future. Elliott,

:16:01.:16:07.

I spoke to Andrew Smaje and asked them how he is dealing with the cut.

:16:07.:16:12.

We are producing plays with pure accent -- fewer actors and we have

:16:12.:16:17.

had to make redundancies. Everybody locally and nationally are having

:16:17.:16:23.

to do this. As the future of Hull Truck Theatre assured? We are going

:16:23.:16:31.

through a serious period. You could go bust? There is the potential for

:16:31.:16:35.

us to go bust if they do not get the support of the public. Is it

:16:35.:16:42.

the public's for? North. I do not think it is our fault either. --

:16:42.:16:52.
:16:52.:16:54.

know. We have to find an extra 300 people every night. That is not

:16:54.:17:00.

easy to find. We have started to broaden the canvas of work. If

:17:00.:17:03.

you're going to broaden your audience, you have to broaden your

:17:03.:17:13.
:17:13.:17:13.

palate. There is a big audience for plays by Alan Bennett, Shakespeare,

:17:14.:17:18.

Arthur Miller. We're not to hear it -- we're not here to make money,

:17:18.:17:23.

we're a charity. We are here to break-even, but because of the work

:17:23.:17:26.

we do with the community, with young people and with young,

:17:27.:17:34.

disabled people, and in bringing on the next generation of talent, that

:17:34.:17:37.

involves a certain amount of creative risk and our audience

:17:37.:17:41.

loves to see that risk. It is very exciting to see Newick talent

:17:41.:17:48.

emerging. -- a new talent emerging. That is one of the principal

:17:48.:17:53.

responsibilities of my job. With hindsight, was it right to move to

:17:53.:17:57.

the new premises? Have you tried to be too ambitious? I was not here at

:17:57.:18:02.

the time. Was it right? I cannot comment on the thought process

:18:02.:18:12.

behind it, but we have a test ahead of it -- head of us now. There is

:18:12.:18:19.

no reason why, Hull is a major city in Britain, and in a region such as

:18:19.:18:24.

East Yorkshire and Humber, that area should not have a producing

:18:24.:18:30.

theatre. Of course we should have that. You want people to pay a

:18:30.:18:35.

little bit more than previously? Do think they will? I know they will.

:18:35.:18:45.
:18:45.:18:46.

We have seen the evidence of that. The fund-raising campaign is an

:18:46.:18:49.

opportunity for local individuals and businesses to invest in the

:18:49.:18:56.

future. If people do not use this theatre, will they lose it? For me,

:18:56.:19:01.

there is a sense that our audience need to use it or there is the risk

:19:01.:19:08.

that they will lose it. Andrew Smaje talking to me earlier.

:19:08.:19:18.

If you have a view on that, text or use Twitter.

:19:18.:19:24.

Kirk Yeaman could return to Hull FC's side on Saturday despite

:19:24.:19:32.

suffering a leg - it -- despite suffering an epileptic fit against

:19:32.:19:40.

Wakefield on Saturday. Dramatic scenes indeed. Kirk Yeaman has

:19:40.:19:44.

thanked Hull FC supporters today after that dressing room drama at

:19:44.:19:49.

Wakefield. His progress will be monitored during the week. He could

:19:49.:19:54.

make an immediate return to decide on Friday night against St Helens.

:19:54.:20:00.

There was no sign of the drama to come as he scored an early try. But,

:20:00.:20:04.

in the dressing-room at half-time, he suffered an epileptic fit and

:20:04.:20:10.

was treated by the club doctor. Potentially, that could derail the

:20:10.:20:17.

team. Our doctor handled the whole situation very well.

:20:17.:20:24.

Hull FC went on to secure a victory which boosts their play-off hopes.

:20:24.:20:30.

One campaign group said today it is no more dangerous for epilepsy

:20:30.:20:36.

sufferers to player can do it -- to play a contact sport like rugby

:20:36.:20:41.

league than anyone else. There is no reason why any of young people

:20:41.:20:45.

with epilepsy cannot go on to succeed in sport or any other area

:20:45.:20:52.

of work. Kirk Yeaman thanked fans after she was inundated with

:20:52.:21:02.
:21:02.:21:06.

Elsewhere, Hull Kingston Rovers responded to two heavy defeats with

:21:06.:21:10.

a victory at Harlequins, Jake Webster scoring twice to ease the

:21:10.:21:15.

pressure on the coach. By Kirk Yeaman will continue to be

:21:15.:21:20.

monitored by his club this week. Despite his scare at Wakefield, he

:21:21.:21:28.

could return on Friday at St Helens. Incredible, we wish him well. Any

:21:28.:21:38.
:21:38.:21:38.

better news from Wimbledon? Thank you for sending me out and a

:21:38.:21:44.

thunderstorm! Kyle Edmund is through to the next round of the

:21:44.:21:49.

under 17 is Wimbledon tournament. He beat Joao Pedro Sorgi today. He

:21:50.:21:59.

said that practising with Robert saw the line has helped his game.

:21:59.:22:05.

If you get any time here, it is good, and to hit with Robert was

:22:05.:22:12.

even better. The thought of Kyle Edmund. Lincoln

:22:12.:22:17.

Ladies have three players in their squad for England's World Cup match

:22:17.:22:27.
:22:27.:22:31.

with Mexico. The game has just ended and a draw. 1-1.

:22:31.:22:37.

This week sees the showing of our film charting the lives other

people who worked on the Humber docks. There will be screenings in

Grimsby, Hull, and cool. -- and You cringed with the pain sometimes,

:22:57.:23:05.

but you could not stop. Some people said that they had to go home and

:23:05.:23:11.

get their wide suspect -- to pick splinters out of their shoulders. -

:23:11.:23:21.
