the High Court. And after thousands attend the

:00:03.:00:12.

annual air show, the clean-up begins at RAF Waddington.

:00:12.:00:16.

And after a warm weekend at the unsettled weather up -- is on his

:00:16.:00:24.

way back. Contractors in East Yorkshire have

:00:24.:00:26.

apologised for laying a new road surface, free of charge, outside

:00:26.:00:32.

the home of Beverley MP Graham Stuart. They'd resurfaced the drive

:00:32.:00:35.

using materials left over from public road repairs but the move

:00:35.:00:42.

left the MP being strongly criticised. Neighbours were also

:00:42.:00:47.

angry, claiming the new surface didn't fit in with the surroundings.

:00:47.:00:52.

Well, today the workmen returned to the scene to rip the tarmac up. Our

:00:52.:01:02.

reporter Phil Connell was there. This exclusive residential road and

:01:02.:01:06.

Beverley has been the biggest talking point for weeks. A private

:01:06.:01:13.

drive that has gone from this, to this, to this. The way for the

:01:13.:01:17.

local MP has been blamed for the controversial saga. Her request for

:01:17.:01:21.

free Tarmac to be laid has divided neighbours and caused a political

:01:21.:01:26.

storm. This is just one small residential road, why has it become

:01:26.:01:32.

a priority? There are many roads in this very area that deserve to have

:01:32.:01:36.

the resources used on them. controversy began when Mrs Stuart

:01:36.:01:39.

asked contractors working for the council to resurface the drive that

:01:39.:01:44.

also leads to their family home. The work men had been repairing

:01:44.:01:48.

potholes and Beverley, and use Tarmac which had been left over.

:01:48.:01:53.

The problem is the neighbours here were not consulted. Today, after

:01:53.:01:57.

several objections, the contractors are back to remove the tarmac which

:01:57.:02:03.

is laid just a few weeks before. the time, it seemed like a good

:02:03.:02:09.

will gesture done in good faith. you regret it now? It was in there

:02:09.:02:14.

and we apologise and you will do our best to put the right. This

:02:14.:02:18.

lane is a private road which provides access to 18 different

:02:18.:02:22.

homes. Today those using the lane where divided as to whether the

:02:22.:02:28.

Stuarts use of the tarmac was right or wrong. I liked it. I think once

:02:28.:02:31.

and settle down it would have been the same colour as the rest of the

:02:31.:02:41.
:02:41.:02:43.

lane. It is a lot less bumpy. morning Mrs Stuart was attempting

:02:43.:02:48.

to build bridges with neighbours. Her husband Graham left home were

:02:48.:02:52.

refusing to comment. One friend and neighbour said the MP and his wife

:02:52.:02:56.

had been unfairly treated. I think it is totally unreasonable that

:02:56.:02:59.

they should be put through this ordeal, and the stress and pressure

:02:59.:03:09.

is phenomenal. The expected a few potholes and they got M25 done.

:03:09.:03:14.

MP will be hoping today brings closer to the story. The tale has

:03:15.:03:17.

more twists and turns than a lane itself.

:03:18.:03:21.

And Phil is in Mr Stuart's Beverley constituency for us now. Phil, what

:03:21.:03:27.

is the situation there tonight? After complaints from local Labour

:03:27.:03:32.

Party here in Beverley, we believe Graham Stuart has now declared this

:03:32.:03:37.

work as a parliamentary -- under parliamentary rules on private

:03:37.:03:42.

interests. He will not want to be accused of taking advantage of his

:03:42.:03:46.

parliamentary position. As regards the Lane itself, things there are a

:03:46.:03:51.

lot quieter. Workmen have finished lifting 50 yards of tarmac. Whether

:03:51.:03:55.

it will restore peace and harmony to this residential road, we will

:03:55.:04:04.

have to wait and see. We will meet Hull City's new

:04:04.:04:07.

players as they begin pre-season training.

:04:07.:04:09.

Health campaigners say they'll fight proposals to relax the

:04:09.:04:13.

smoking ban in pubs. The East Yorkshire MP Greg Knight is leading

:04:13.:04:17.

calls for a change in the law, which would allow pubs and clubs to

:04:17.:04:22.

create a designated smoking room for those who want to light up. He

:04:22.:04:25.

claims the ban is responsible for a record number of pub closures

:04:25.:04:28.

across the country, but opponents point to the economic downturn as

:04:28.:04:38.
:04:38.:04:39.

the cause. More now from our Political Editor Tim Iredale.

:04:39.:04:45.

This is a typical scene outside any British pub nowadays: smokers

:04:45.:04:49.

banished to the great outdoors. Not too bad on a summer's evening, less

:04:49.:04:53.

appealing in the middle of winter. Most of the smokers here that this

:04:53.:05:00.

Hull pub say they would much rather be indoors. You pay for everything

:05:00.:05:08.

but you can smoke inside, you have to go outside. It is not fair at

:05:08.:05:11.

all when you're coming out socialising. We're going home now

:05:11.:05:16.

to have a drink and we can have a small there. I think we should all

:05:16.:05:19.

be allowed back in the pubs and they should have smoking rooms back

:05:19.:05:24.

in the pubs. It is not very sociable to leave people in the pub

:05:24.:05:30.

to have become its side. And number of MPs from all sides agree

:05:31.:05:33.

including East Yorkshire Tory Greg Knight. Since the introduction of

:05:33.:05:37.

the smoking ban, many smokers are now staying at home, and sauteed is

:05:37.:05:43.

falling. It's to try to save the village pub, the town pub, and in

:05:43.:05:47.

many cases these are a valuable asset to the community they serve.

:05:47.:05:50.

Figures reveal that since the smoking ban was introduced in

:05:50.:05:55.

England in 2007, more than 4000 pubs have closed. Health

:05:55.:05:58.

campaigners point to figures showing that in the first beer of

:05:58.:06:03.

the ban alone, the number of heart attacks fell by around 10%. I think

:06:03.:06:07.

we have moved on now anything people enjoyed it when they go to

:06:07.:06:10.

the pub, it is a smoke-free environment. I think it would be

:06:10.:06:15.

going back really, if we now started having smoking room she

:06:15.:06:18.

could go as Malkin. It is not the way to deal with it. We need to

:06:18.:06:21.

support the pub industry and support the issue of alcohol that

:06:21.:06:25.

is being sold so cheaply in supermarkets, those are the things

:06:25.:06:31.

we need to address. Four years on, opinion is still sharply divided as

:06:31.:06:34.

to whether pubs and clubs should remain totally smoke-free

:06:34.:06:38.

environments. Sean Rennison is a pub landlord in

:06:38.:06:40.

Hull, and also serves on the Licensed Victuallers' Association

:06:40.:06:47.

which represents the pub trade. Do you and many of you landlords

:06:47.:06:51.

welcome the suggestion of a return for smoking rooms? Yes, we do. It

:06:51.:06:56.

is what we wanted originally going back to 2006 when we were

:06:56.:06:59.

consulting on the smoking ban. would surely agree we don't want to

:06:59.:07:02.

go back to the old days of a pub smelling like small, which is what

:07:02.:07:07.

would happen? With today's technology, air extraction in the

:07:07.:07:14.

air conditioning... Who will pay for that, the brewery's? The pub

:07:14.:07:19.

landlords. Her 59 pubs a weaker closing. They are not closing

:07:19.:07:26.

because of the smoking ban, are the? I think you'll find the

:07:27.:07:32.

majority are closing as a part of the smoking ban. You can be sure of

:07:32.:07:39.

that? It is the principal factor in pub closures, take my word for that.

:07:39.:07:43.

We have an e-mail here saying that some -- lack of smoking rooms

:07:43.:07:48.

killing pubs is rubbish: it is a high cost of the drinks in them.

:07:48.:07:56.

That does not help, I have to say. Supermarkets selling alcohol often

:07:56.:08:00.

at below cost and passing the VAT element on ticket prices. You would

:08:00.:08:05.

be happy to see a pub again with people puffing away damaging

:08:05.:08:07.

themselves even talk health agencies say the number of heart

:08:07.:08:14.

attacks went down by 10%? Are you happy to see people smoking away in

:08:14.:08:19.

pubs? I would be delighted to see that in a control that was fair.

:08:19.:08:27.

What is a control that is here? Extraction and air-conditioning.

:08:27.:08:31.

Our reporter said that government could look at things like price

:08:31.:08:38.

controls in supermarkets. Minimum prices would be a big advantage.

:08:38.:08:43.

Perhaps the pubs have not got it right? The pubs have got it right.

:08:43.:08:49.

It is a tradition. People visiting winter visit English pubs.

:08:49.:08:54.

I'd like to throw this one open to you this evening. Do you support

:08:54.:08:58.

the idea of bringing "smoking rooms" back? If so, why? Or do you

:08:58.:09:01.

think the smoking ban has been a good thing? Perhaps you're a

:09:01.:09:03.

landlord or maybe a smoker yourself? I'd be interested to hear

:09:03.:09:13.
:09:13.:09:24.

A play in Bridlington involving 300 school children has been cancelled

:09:24.:09:33.

after concerns about references by a gay character to his sexuality.

:09:33.:09:38.

The play was due to take place at the Bridlington Spa next weekend.

:09:38.:09:41.

It's part of an Opera North project. But the writer, who also wrote

:09:41.:09:44.

Billy Elliot, says the school pulled out after he refused to

:09:44.:09:52.

change part of the script. They've said that this character can be gay

:09:52.:09:59.

but not acknowledge that Tuesday. If you look at the rental people,

:09:59.:10:03.

some people will be a bit you don't know what. How well you know if he

:10:03.:10:07.

is getting does not convey it. are not being homophobic, they're

:10:07.:10:10.

not saying that homosexuality is a terrible thing. I think the

:10:10.:10:15.

opposite. There saying we need to teach it can handle it in a way

:10:15.:10:18.

that we think is appropriate. In other news today, four wallabies

:10:18.:10:21.

have been killed at Sewerby Hall, near Bridlington. Initial evidence

:10:21.:10:24.

suggests a fox is responsible for the attack. The zoo's fifth wallaby

:10:24.:10:26.

has now been re-homed, while staff check the perimeter fencing.

:10:26.:10:29.

A teacher in Lincoln has been suspended for two years for having

:10:29.:10:33.

"inappropriate contact" with two students. Kirstie Notman was

:10:33.:10:35.

teaching at the Priory LSST school when she sent explicit text

:10:35.:10:40.

messages and a Valentine's card to a pupil. The General Teaching

:10:40.:10:43.

Council heard she later moved to another school but failed to tell

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:10:54.

them about the allegations. Marks & Spencer is planning to open

:10:54.:10:56.

a new store in Scunthorpe just months after pulling out of the

:10:56.:11:06.
:11:06.:11:08.

town. The shop wants to move to a new development on Doncaster

:11:08.:11:11.

It has cost �21 million, and has taken two years to build.

:11:11.:11:14.

Today, the state of the art Pods leisure centre in Scunthorpe has

:11:14.:11:17.

opened its doors for the first time. Our reporter Jake Zuckerman has

:11:17.:11:21.

been to take a look. The Pods have landed. Like an alien

:11:21.:11:24.

visitor. Bringing the latest facilites to Scunthorpe. A gym with

:11:24.:11:27.

dozens of exercise machines, two studios, a six-court sports hall

:11:27.:11:37.
:11:37.:11:39.

and a 25-metre pool. architecture of the building itself

:11:39.:11:45.

is so unique. It is what -- it is about what is inside two. It is the

:11:45.:11:48.

modern facilities we have and the high-tech equipment. It is about

:11:48.:11:51.

looking to the future in that is what is important about it. It

:11:51.:11:56.

shows we will not do it things second best year. We want the best

:11:56.:11:59.

and that is what do will deliver on. The gym opened today: an

:11:59.:12:02.

opportunity for local people to get their first glimpse of what's on

:12:02.:12:10.

offer. Fantastic, a lot more modern than the old place. New and

:12:10.:12:15.

different, modern. A it is very a market. The building cost more than

:12:15.:12:16.

�21 million and sports environmentally friendly features.

:12:16.:12:19.

Like grey-water recycling and a biomass boiler. But the project has

:12:19.:12:22.

not been without its difficulties. Two weeks ago an explosion in the

:12:22.:12:26.

pool's filter system injured three workers. As a result, the pool's

:12:26.:12:29.

opening has been delayed. Still, the council is adamant, any

:12:29.:12:39.
:12:39.:12:46.

teething problems will soon be Still to come: A High Court hearing

And it the clean-up gets underway at RAF Waddington after thousands

:13:20.:13:30.
:13:30.:13:30.

This will make you feel good about yourself. I saw Peter Levy sitting

:13:30.:13:38.

by himself in the docks the other day. How sad is that?

:13:38.:13:42.

You forecasters are in trouble. You forecasters are in trouble.

:13:42.:13:47.

We got it right this weekend. The headline for the next 24 hours

:13:47.:13:54.

is not up to bed at first. By the end of the day, rain will be

:13:54.:13:59.

pushing in from the West. The type of weather that dominated June will

:13:59.:14:09.
:14:09.:14:10.

come across for the foreseeable future and into next week. In the

:14:10.:14:17.

short term, it is very pleasant out there. Enjoy this warm evening, it

:14:17.:14:23.

may be the last one for some time. There will be some hazy sunshine

:14:23.:14:30.

and variable amounts of cloud. Lowest temperatures down to 12

:14:30.:14:40.
:14:40.:14:43.

Celsius. The sun will rise in the It looks very pleasant in the

:14:43.:14:47.

morning. Fine and bright and there would be some sunshine for most of

:14:47.:14:52.

us. As we head through the afternoon, cloud will thicken from

:14:53.:14:56.

the West. By the end of the afternoon, rain will be threatening

:14:56.:15:02.

but I don't know if it will get to the coast until tomorrow evening.

:15:02.:15:12.
:15:12.:15:13.

For the most parts, it is looking fine. We have topped temperatures

:15:13.:15:19.

of 24 Celsius. There is the potential for some heavy rain

:15:19.:15:29.
:15:29.:15:36.

See you tomorrow. It has been described as a landmark

:15:36.:15:40.

case. A Lincolnshire couple who claimed the noise from a wind farm

:15:40.:15:44.

has driven them from their home, have begun a hearing at the High

:15:44.:15:49.

Court today. Jane and Julian Davis live in Deeping St Nicholas and say

:15:49.:15:52.

the noise was so disturbing, they couldn't sleep at night. The case

:15:52.:16:01.

is likely to set a precedent for other claims across the country.

:16:01.:16:06.

Their house but they can't live here any more. The family say they

:16:06.:16:12.

were forced to move out for good four years ago by these. 1,000

:16:12.:16:17.

metres away, eight turbines omitting a noise that they say were

:16:17.:16:25.

so bad they are challenging it in the High Court. The drone was so

:16:25.:16:31.

unrelenting. Everyone is very tired and totally exhausted. Since

home. This morning they have come to the High Court in London up to

:16:43.:16:47.

resolve their noise problem once and for all. We have had to come

:16:47.:16:50.

because we have exhausted every other avenue of resolving the

:16:50.:16:55.

problem. If without the pressure placed on them by a court action,

:16:55.:16:59.

they have done little in terms of resolving the problem. We are

:16:59.:17:04.

hoping to achieve recognition that there is a noise nuisance from the

:17:04.:17:09.

wind farm and get that stopped. We hope to go home and carry on our

:17:09.:17:13.

life. For what do they have to achieve? They want the company is

:17:13.:17:17.

to remove three of the turbines, limit operating hours and pay

:17:17.:17:22.

damages like their rental costs. Tomorrow the court will go to the

:17:22.:17:25.

site as it tries to determine whether the nuisance noise claim is

:17:25.:17:29.

valid. The case is being seen as a landmark one for the entire

:17:29.:17:36.

industry. A lot of people will be following

:17:36.:17:44.

this one. Do you support them in their fight at the High Court? What

and being beaten by Swansea. Looking forward to a new challenge
