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

:00:05.:00:09.

A Cleethorpes man is identified as one of two found dead inside a car

:00:09.:00:14.

displaying chemical warning signs. How this advert ended in a fine for

:00:14.:00:20.

an unemployed man. I'm not a criminal. I just wanted a

:00:20.:00:23.

job. Claims the scale of homelessness is

:00:23.:00:27.

being ignored by officials in Lincolnshire.

:00:27.:00:30.

You've got it in you to go the whole distance.

:00:30.:00:32.

Absolutely. And the Oscar-winning actress

:00:32.:00:41.

taking on her toughest role yet as a grocer's daughter from Grantham.

:00:41.:00:46.

Fifth if it is the eve of the 153rd Great Yorkshire Show. It is the

:00:46.:00:49.

biggest in England, but will the Sunday Shining? Joined me live

:00:50.:00:57.

better. First tonight - mystery still

:00:57.:01:00.

surrounds the fate of two men found dead inside a parked car in North

:01:00.:01:06.

Lincolnshire on Friday. Today it was revealed that one of two men

:01:06.:01:11.

was from Cleethorpes. He was found along with another man from the

:01:11.:01:15.

West Midlands. A sign on the outside of the vehicle warned

:01:15.:01:24.

people not to go near because of harmful chemicals.

:01:24.:01:29.

It is thought the car in which the two men have died may have been

:01:29.:01:33.

driven to this quiet lane deliberately. It possible suicide

:01:33.:01:37.

pact between these two men, who police say knew each other before

:01:37.:01:42.

their debts. One was 43 and from Cleethorpes. The other man was from

:01:42.:01:47.

Wolverhampton and was 30. Outside their core, a sign was. Warning

:01:47.:01:52.

people not to enter because of dangerous chemicals. It follows a

:01:52.:01:56.

similar incident last year, were chemicals had been used in a

:01:56.:02:02.

suicide pact in Essex. It has now led the emergency services to issue

:02:02.:02:07.

guidelines on how cases like this are dealt with. We have crews

:02:07.:02:13.

trained to deal with hazardous incidents. We have officers trained

:02:13.:02:16.

and the equipment to be able to detect and identify what hazardous

:02:17.:02:21.

materials are involved. According to The Samaritans, the use of

:02:21.:02:24.

chemicals is still a relatively unknown method of suicide in

:02:24.:02:29.

Britain. It has now issued a warning about the use of the

:02:29.:02:33.

internet in cases like this. read the papers just like anyone

:02:33.:02:42.

else and we are aware of this way of taking your life. We let them

:02:42.:02:46.

talk and ask the right questions, hopefully. We ask them what they

:02:46.:02:51.

intend to do and if they have any specific plans. Police are now

:02:51.:02:55.

waiting for postmortem results to establish the exact cause of high

:02:55.:02:59.

the two men died. It's tragic case for both men and their families.

:03:00.:03:02.

Our reporter joins me now from Winteringham. What's the latest

:03:02.:03:09.

from the scene tonight? Police tonight say it is likely the

:03:09.:03:14.

names of these two men will not be released until tomorrow. A police

:03:14.:03:18.

spokeswoman has said that this was proving to be quite a challenging

:03:18.:03:23.

investigation. She said that the force had never seen an incident

:03:23.:03:27.

quite like this before. There was a lot of new things for detectives to

:03:27.:03:31.

deal with. Because of that, it could take several more days for

:03:31.:03:35.

the police to reach any firm conclusions. Although the names of

:03:35.:03:38.

these two men have not been released yet, we do know that their

:03:38.:03:42.

families have been informed and the police have confirmed that suicide

:03:42.:03:51.

is one definite line of inquiry. In a moment...

:03:51.:03:58.

As hundreds graduate, fears for the future of university leavers.

:03:58.:04:02.

An unemployed man from Hull who put up posters in his local area to

:04:02.:04:05.

advertise the fact that he was looking for work has been fined by

:04:05.:04:09.

the City Council. 20-year-old Daniel Bird had been looking for

:04:09.:04:13.

work for more than a year before taking the action. Now he has found

:04:13.:04:23.
:04:23.:04:24.

a job, but also been given a �75 fine for flyposting.

:04:24.:04:28.

Enjoying his new role as a team assistant at Mecca Bingo. Daniel

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

has finaly got a job after a year of searching. It is going good. I

:04:38.:04:45.

am calling out the numbers. When anybody claims command answer them.

:04:45.:04:49.

I served drinks. I'm so proud I got this job.

:04:49.:04:53.

He got the job after the manager spotted a poster Daniel had put up

:04:53.:05:00.

in the city centre. I saw his posters on the way to work every 10

:05:00.:05:05.

feet or so. I thought it was really proactive and was showing

:05:05.:05:09.

entrepreneurial skills. He was desperately looking for a job.

:05:09.:05:12.

It was posters like these that Daniel had put up on lamp posts.

:05:12.:05:15.

But Hull City council have now issued him with a �75 fine for

:05:15.:05:24.

doing so. In a statement, Hull City Council

:05:24.:05:30.

have told us... Was the commitment it to find a job is to be commended,

:05:30.:05:33.

fly-posting is illegal and we cannot allow this type of activity

:05:33.:05:39.

to growth. It is so difficult to find a job these days. I do not see

:05:39.:05:43.

any problem with that. He is proactive and doing his bit.

:05:43.:05:48.

think it shows initiative. I cannot fault the guy for that. It is

:05:48.:05:52.

heavy-handed bureaucracy that has led to a fine. The gang is trying

:05:52.:05:55.

his best to get a job and the Council are obviously trying to

:05:55.:06:00.

stop them from doing that. Good on him if he has got a job.

:06:00.:06:03.

So it seems most people think he deserves a pint not a penelty for

:06:04.:06:13.
:06:14.:06:15.

his actions. We have heard tonight that the

:06:15.:06:20.

bingo employers are going to pay Daniel's fine. But are the council

:06:20.:06:23.

right to penalise them? I'm sure you'll have your own

:06:23.:06:26.

thoughts on this one. Are the council right to fine him for

:06:26.:06:29.

putting these posters up? Or should they be applauding him for his

:06:29.:06:39.
:06:39.:06:45.

initiative when so many people are A Lincolnshire woman is facing a

:06:45.:06:49.

life sentence after admitting to the murder of her mother. 32-year-

:06:49.:06:51.

old Lisa Traves had previously denied murdering Priscilla Traves,

:06:51.:06:56.

who was 61, last November, but today she changed her plea. Traves,

:06:56.:06:59.

from Horncastle, was arrested after her mother's body was found with

:06:59.:07:04.

multiple stab wounds. Post mortem tests on a runner who

:07:04.:07:06.

collapsed during the Humber Bridge half marathon have found he died

:07:06.:07:10.

from heat exhaustion. 32 year-old Matthew Good collapsed less than a

:07:10.:07:15.

mile from the finish line in the race two weeks ago. His family have

:07:15.:07:19.

now set up a charitable foundation in his name.

:07:19.:07:21.

Volunteers working with homeless people in Boston say the local

:07:21.:07:26.

authority is refusing to recognise the scale of the problem. One

:07:26.:07:30.

charity says it helps around 40 homeless people each month. But

:07:30.:07:32.

Boston Borough Council estimates the number of rough sleepers in the

:07:32.:07:37.

town at just 12. The authority argues it needs agencies to provide

:07:37.:07:44.

more information. One of 34 lunches served on a

:07:44.:07:49.

typical day at this Boston Soup Kitchen. It's Manuel's only hot

:07:49.:07:54.

meal of the week. He's been homeless for three years but can't

:07:54.:08:03.

return to Portugal, as he no longer has a passport. The very difficult

:08:03.:08:12.

for a job. My passport was very expensive. I got �100 for it. I am

:08:12.:08:17.

working two days a week to try and get it back. Do you want to go

:08:17.:08:26.

home? Yes. The foreign nationals who are in work, over in work. When

:08:26.:08:30.

the contracts are finished, they are out of work. That also means

:08:30.:08:34.

they are out of accommodation. The work is time to the accommodation.

:08:34.:08:36.

The Government's annual Homeless Survey has previously required

:08:36.:08:39.

local councils to walk the streets and do a headcount. This camp was

:08:39.:08:47.

on the banks of the River Witham. But this year, the rules have

:08:47.:08:52.

changed. The Government has said an estimate can be submitted instead.

:08:53.:08:57.

In doing so, they must consult and agree with the agencies that work

:08:57.:09:00.

with homeless people on a day-to- day basis.

:09:00.:09:03.

Boston Borough Council estimate 12 rough sleepers live on the town's

:09:03.:09:07.

streets. A figure which angers John Marshall. He runs an outreach

:09:07.:09:15.

centre. If that is the figure that is being presented, there is no

:09:15.:09:20.

resemblance to the true picture. In June, we had 41 people presented to

:09:20.:09:25.

us as rough sleeping. In my view, governments, locally and nationally,

:09:25.:09:30.

it has been in their interest to keep figures low. Have you been

:09:30.:09:35.

asked by the council to help with their estimates? We have not been

:09:35.:09:42.

asked for approach at all. I think that the council are basically

:09:42.:09:49.

wrong. We listen to everybody who comes to us with information. We

:09:49.:09:52.

would like to have those information -- agencies coming back

:09:52.:09:56.

to us what specific details as to where these people are located. We

:09:56.:09:59.

cannot afford to spend a lot of money on what is essentially

:09:59.:10:02.

perhaps a wild goose chase. Other local councils have told Look

:10:02.:10:05.

North they'll also be estimating homeless numbers for this

:10:05.:10:08.

Government survey. But in Boston, the debate has moved from the size

:10:08.:10:14.

of that estimate to who is best- placed to make it.

:10:14.:10:21.

Joining me now is Duncan Shrubsole from the charity, Crisis. So, whose

:10:21.:10:30.

figures give the most accurate picture - charities or councils?

:10:30.:10:35.

Be a partnership. As we think it should be a partnership. The

:10:35.:10:37.

Government changed the guidelines this year and I think they changed

:10:38.:10:43.

it in the wrong way. There should be a pint and agencies should be

:10:43.:10:47.

spoken to for a proper information. So the council's need to spend more

:10:47.:10:51.

money on this? Or the Government should give them more money?

:10:51.:10:55.

Councils need to know the full extent of homelessness. Many people

:10:56.:11:00.

are hidden away out of sight for safety were other reasons. It is

:11:00.:11:06.

important that you take as wide as possible approach to count people.

:11:07.:11:10.

Homelessness is already rising and we are really worried that the

:11:10.:11:13.

resources for the services are being cut and it will only get

:11:13.:11:16.

worse. But there will be plenty of people watching tonight saying this

:11:16.:11:21.

is not a problem. Consuls of much bigger fish to fry right now than

:11:21.:11:26.

this. Anyone who is homeless in 21st century Britain - it is a

:11:26.:11:31.

scandal. Whether it affects one person or 100 people - it is

:11:31.:11:36.

potentially a life wasted. We should all do more to help tackle

:11:36.:11:40.

homelessness and make sure people do not become homeless when ever

:11:40.:11:44.

housing benefits cuts come in. When people go to their local authority,

:11:44.:11:48.

they should be able to get the help they need to get back into society

:11:48.:11:54.

and a job. The bigger problem these days is those people struggling to

:11:54.:11:59.

make ends meet to have been forced to move back in with their parents

:11:59.:12:02.

or on the floors of friends' houses. There are the real home was at the

:12:02.:12:09.

moment, are say? You are right. Homeless this includes those people.

:12:09.:12:13.

People have had to go back and stay on friends' floors, squats etc.

:12:13.:12:20.

That is homelessness. There is a broad range and we need to tackle

:12:20.:12:30.

it. Thank you. Still ahead tonight...

:12:30.:12:33.

Nations from across the world join together for a football tournament

:12:33.:12:42.

with a difference. It is a startling portrayal and really very

:12:42.:12:45.

good. And get the verdict on a Hollywood

:12:45.:12:51.

portrayal of a very famous Lincolnshire face.

:12:51.:12:54.

10-year-old Ryan Carter took tonight's picture out of his window

:12:54.:13:04.
:13:04.:13:07.

on Friday night in Hull. Thank you very much.

:13:07.:13:12.

The Great Yorkshire Show doesn't have until tomorrow, but Paul is

:13:12.:13:15.

there tonight. Did you get that wrong as well?

:13:15.:13:22.

No, no, no! The tickets are out! That is how you get a good deal.

:13:23.:13:27.

Mark says he saw you in Bridlington yesterday caught in a torrential

:13:27.:13:31.

rainstorm and never laughed so much. It goes on to say - and why was

:13:31.:13:34.

Peter's make-up running? You are really going to have to stop

:13:34.:13:41.

wearing make-up on a weekend. That was a true story as well!

:13:41.:13:51.
:13:51.:13:53.

Sadly for you, it was! It looks mostly dry with the 20%

:13:53.:13:57.

chance of rain. That means that much of the time it will be dry and

:13:57.:14:01.

there will be some sunshine as well. He very pleasant three days at the

:14:02.:14:07.

Greater to show. Not too bad weather wise this evening. There

:14:07.:14:09.

are shoes -- still one or two bad showers across East Yorkshire, but

:14:09.:14:14.

many of us have seen some sunshine. Overnight, it is dry with clear

:14:14.:14:19.

periods. A light breeze from the North. Temperatures will be down to

:14:19.:14:24.

11 or 12 Celsius. Tomorrow looks like it will be a nice day.

:14:24.:14:29.

Variable amounts of cloud, but the sun will break free at times. It

:14:29.:14:33.

may well help generate one a two showers, but they will be very

:14:33.:14:37.

isolated. The difference in the wind direction will be north-

:14:37.:14:43.

easterly. Along the coast, it will be a bit cooler. Inland - 19 or 20

:14:43.:14:47.

will be behind. That is close to normal for the time of year. It

:14:47.:14:50.

will be more of the same for Wednesday and Thursday, becoming

:14:50.:15:00.
:15:00.:15:04.

warmer on Thursday. Friday and the Thank you very much indeed.

Students graduating from our universities face more competition

:15:08.:15:14.

than ever to find jobs. Thousands are due to leave from the Yorkshire

:15:14.:15:19.

and Lincolnshire this summer. But figures claim there is only one job

:15:19.:15:26.

for every 83 applicants. Over half of this year's some are Lever's

:15:26.:15:31.

of graduating. -- some were It is a day to celebrate academic

:15:44.:15:52.

achievement. But as these students back-up their degrees many are

:15:52.:15:57.

already turning their minds to their next big challenge.

:15:57.:16:02.

I have applied for over 100 jobs. But with the amount of redundancies

:16:02.:16:06.

there are people with more experience than us.

:16:06.:16:12.

There is not enough jobs going around. Everybody is applying for

:16:12.:16:19.

similar things. Anything. Shops, cafe-bar us, they

:16:19.:16:25.

do not seem able to get anything. The graduate job market has still

:16:25.:16:31.

not fully recovered from the recession. Deborah will have no job

:16:31.:16:35.

after the summer and will have to move back to live with her parents

:16:35.:16:41.

to save money. But she is confident that there will be jobs out there.

:16:41.:16:46.

You do lose confidence a little bit. But at the moment because their

:16:46.:16:52.

jobs are still coming out I do not feel completely despondent.

:16:52.:16:56.

Challenging conditions come as no surprise. A recent survey shows

:16:56.:17:02.

there is only one job for every 83 graduates. Double the number two

:17:02.:17:08.

hears ago. Applicant numbers have risen by more than 20% whilst

:17:08.:17:14.

vacancies have risen by only 2%. But this campus Careers Office has

:17:14.:17:22.

a more positive outlook. This year at most universities have

:17:22.:17:28.

the scene graduate vacancies are filled. What employers look for is

:17:28.:17:32.

a has this person worked in a professional environment? And the

:17:32.:17:41.

other thing they look for is a rounded, confident person.

:17:41.:17:46.

Memories of graduation day last a lifetime. For the class of 2011

:17:46.:17:55.

there is a level of competition for jobs and never seen before.

:17:55.:18:03.

Lots of response to the Lincoln cinema story. The Odeon and Lincoln

:18:03.:18:09.

is the only cinema in the City and charges �9 for an adult seat. The

cinema claims to take feedback Seriously and there has been plenty

:18:13.:18:20.

of it from you. Bell says, I booked the films I want to see at the

the exception of Headingley. Unlike football this as a day out.

:19:45.:19:52.

It has been 20 years since Hull last held county cricket. The

:19:52.:19:56.

absence of top-flight cricket is a major concern for those concerned

:19:56.:20:01.

with development in East Yorkshire. When the youngsters see Yorkshire

:20:02.:20:06.

playing in the flesh it infuses them. It would be ideal if they

:20:06.:20:10.

could get around the county more but we appreciate that in cars

The chances see their professionals live is much better than on

television. It encourages the cads. It inspires and excites the

:20:26.:20:30.

children. It is great for the children to see

:20:30.:20:36.

how they play, how they hit it. Back at Scarborough, Yorkshire made

:20:36.:20:42.

light work of Worcestershire. The venue is sure to remain a major

:20:43.:20:48.

draw for many cricket followers. You are right on top of the game.

:20:48.:20:54.

You are right on the action as it is taking place. It is a unique

:20:54.:20:59.

atmosphere here. Few supporters would grumble about

:20:59.:21:03.

how the home side took control in a match that was crucial for easing

:21:03.:21:13.
:21:13.:21:17.

In the Rugby League, Hull Kingston Rovers coach Justin Morgan says the

:21:17.:21:22.

team showed character in their victory over Crusaders. Ben Gelea

:21:22.:21:31.

scored a try on his 100 per appeals for the club. -- 100 Appearance.

There was hard break for England Ladies's Elaine McGonigle. -- Casey

World Cup. A special World Cup brought

:22:05.:22:12.

together four runners from all over the world at the weekend.

:22:12.:22:18.

With teams from 32 countries and around 3,000 spectators, Hull was

:22:18.:22:25.

cleared up to host England's against a World Cup in 45 years.

:22:25.:22:31.

I am here to support Iraq. I hope now we will win the Cup.

:22:31.:22:37.

I am supporting Ireland but we're not doing very well I am afraid.

:22:37.:22:43.

With this or whether it is perfect. It is like my country. -- this

:22:43.:22:47.

weather. Each country brought a different

:22:47.:22:54.

flavour. Even the world's newest nation, South Sudan, created just

:22:54.:22:58.

three days ago, managed to field a team.

:22:58.:23:03.

I am proud. The players performed a very well.

:23:03.:23:08.

For once, England did not disappoint. They reach the semi-

:23:08.:23:14.

finals but were defeated in a penalty shoot-out by Iraq.

:23:14.:23:20.

I am absolutely gutted. But we have done what we normally do. Gone out

:23:20.:23:29.

in the semi fails on penalties. But Iraq absolutely deserved it.

:23:29.:23:36.

The finalists are Iraq and Congo. After a tense 20 minutes it was

victory went the way of Iraq. I am so happy. I want to thank my

:23:51.:23:57.

team mates and everybody who helped me put together this great team. We

won the World Cup. Thank you very much.

:24:13.:24:18.

Oscar's and one two. Now Meryl Streep is taking on her most

:24:18.:24:23.

Margaret Thatcher's home town think of the portrayal?

We must maximise your appeal and bring out all your qualities. We

of the movie, they will have somewhere to go. All of that would

be good for the town. Watching in the trailer you would

think that the Iron Lady was neither for given nor forgotten.

:26:31.:26:34.

Though we strive to serve and strengthen the country of which we
