Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. They headlines: A week

:00:07.:00:11.

on from the Boston explosion, police say they could not have done

:00:11.:00:17.

more to stop the production of illegal what car. I have spoken to

:00:17.:00:20.

the intelligence unit and we had nothing to suggest the premises or

:00:20.:00:25.

was being used. The woman left with a hole in their throat after

:00:25.:00:31.

botched surgery. You want to sit down and cried. It is the life I

:00:31.:00:34.

have lost. Following fans' fury at the club's

:00:34.:00:38.

relegation, the Lincoln City board faces a vote of no confidence.

thousands of hidden cables that stop the Humber Bridge from sliding

:00:51.:00:59.

Will the fine weather last? Join me A week after an explosion which

:00:59.:01:02.

killed five men in Boston, police have dismissed claims that they

:01:02.:01:06.

should have known about the illegal production of alcohol at the site

:01:06.:01:09.

where the man died. People living in the area say it was common

:01:10.:01:13.

knowledge, but officers say they didn't have any calls from people

:01:13.:01:19.

worried about the problem. It's also emerged that 90 industrial

:01:19.:01:22.

units in Boston have been checked by police as part of their

:01:22.:01:32.
:01:32.:01:32.

investigation. Phillip Norton A week on from the fatal explosion

:01:32.:01:38.

which took the lives of five men, the proof of the illegal distillate

:01:38.:01:43.

-- distillery on Broadfield Lane has now been taken away. I spent

:01:43.:01:47.

much of this week in Boston and while the shock is still clear,

:01:47.:01:51.

people have questioned whether enough was done to prevent the

:01:51.:01:55.

tragedy after previous raids on shops selling illegal vodka in

:01:55.:02:01.

March. Why did they not keep them under observation to see where the

:02:01.:02:05.

supplier was from? They gossip around town for months as that --

:02:05.:02:11.

is that it was produced somewhere locally. It doesn't take much for

:02:11.:02:15.

the police or HM Customs. They could have searched the industrial

:02:15.:02:22.

estates. They problem increased dramatically. I did make several

:02:22.:02:28.

people are aware of my thoughts and asked the cash-and-carry is if they

:02:28.:02:32.

had seen a decline in their vodka sales and they said they had

:02:32.:02:38.

dramatically. Today, the police hit back at rumours regulating that

:02:38.:02:46.

they were aware of a distillery. Nothing, absolutely nothing,

:02:46.:02:49.

related specifically to these premises and had we had that

:02:49.:02:55.

information, we would have acted upon it. As we did on recent

:02:55.:03:01.

information. It has been confirmed that 98 industrial units are being

:03:01.:03:04.

searched as part of the investigation. Some businesses were

:03:04.:03:10.

able to open today. It is a case of trying to get back to normal as

:03:10.:03:15.

quickly as possible and let our customers know we are open and

:03:15.:03:20.

trading. One week on and the unit has been cleared and all the

:03:20.:03:26.

evidence taken away. As well as the five Lithuanian men who died here,

:03:26.:03:30.

a six the man is still in a specialist burns unit at a hospital

:03:31.:03:35.

in Birmingham. He is described as critical but stable. Investigations

:03:36.:03:40.

into what caused the explosion and into the production and supply of

:03:40.:03:48.

illegal vodka from the site are continuing.

:03:48.:03:53.

We would like your thoughts on this. Do you think enough is being done

:03:53.:03:57.

to deal with the problem of counterfeit alcohol in

:03:57.:04:07.

unemployed looking for work in help - one of the toughest places in

:04:11.:04:18.

A doctor whose surgery on an East Yorkshire woman was so bad that she

:04:18.:04:22.

was left barely able to speak, has today been found guilty of

:04:22.:04:25.

misconduct. Jo Roche, who is a mother of two from Bridlington, was

:04:25.:04:28.

due to have a routine throat operation to remove her thyroid.

:04:28.:04:32.

Instead, she left surgery breathing through a tube. The surgeon

:04:32.:04:36.

responsible will learn his fate in the coming few days, but as Leanne

:04:36.:04:39.

Brown reports, his victim has spent the three years since learning to

:04:39.:04:49.
:04:49.:04:53.

Jo has been left breathing through a tube in her neck after nerves

:04:53.:04:57.

linked to a vocal chords were severely damaged in error following

:04:57.:05:03.

a routine operation to remove her thyroid gland. I am upset at how I

:05:03.:05:08.

have been blessed and upset he didn't take the time and care to do

:05:08.:05:15.

my surgery and leave me with the life that I had. You want to sit

:05:15.:05:21.

down and cry. It is the life that I have effectively lost. Since the

:05:21.:05:28.

operation, Jo has had to learn to speak again. I had very little

:05:28.:05:33.

voice after the operation. I worked at it and worked at it to get the

:05:33.:05:39.

voice I had, which is nothing like I used to have. But it is some

:05:39.:05:45.

semblance of normality. It has changed every aspect of her life.

:05:45.:05:50.

It has affected everything from what I buy a for cleaning to the

:05:51.:05:55.

activities I do with my children. I was on holiday recently and I was

:05:55.:06:00.

on the edge of the pool and not being in there with them and

:06:00.:06:05.

feeling guilty. The operation was carried out by Naif El-Barghouti at

:06:05.:06:10.

Scarborough Hospital. In a second operation a year later he was due

:06:10.:06:15.

to repair an aneurysm on Wilfred Taylor's left leg but he play it --

:06:15.:06:20.

bled to death after a series of mistakes. You never think it will

:06:20.:06:26.

happen to a member of your family. It boils down to left and right. He

:06:26.:06:32.

was to be operated on his left side and he tied the right side. What I

:06:32.:06:37.

wanted to know was how could that happen? At the inquest into Mr

:06:37.:06:41.

Taylor's death, the surgeon lied under oath about the size of the

:06:41.:06:46.

aneurysm. The disciplinary panel said it damaged the medical

:06:46.:06:52.

profession's reputation. Hopefully, at bay willow and then used to be

:06:52.:06:55.

more supervision and lessons will be learned to bring in better

:06:55.:07:01.

training and avoid major problems occurring again. Nothing will bring

:07:01.:07:04.

Wilfred back but Jo is determined not to let what happened ruin her

life. Leanne, What will happen to this

surgeon to make sure that other patients don't suffer in the way

:07:11.:07:18.

that Jo Roche did? Now that the General Medical

:07:18.:07:22.

Council has decided that Mr Salmond's fitness to practise has

:07:22.:07:26.

been impaired, they will have to decide on a punishment. They could

:07:26.:07:31.

strike him off so that he could not practise again. The most lenient

:07:31.:07:35.

response would be to caution him for up to five years or they could

:07:35.:07:40.

let him continue to practise as long as he feels some conditions

:07:40.:07:44.

and that could mean they give him more training before he is allowed

:07:44.:07:48.

to operate again. The final option would be to suspend him from

:07:48.:07:54.

surgery for a period of time. The GMC hearing is continuing and his

:07:54.:07:57.

professional future should be decided by a disciplinary panel

:07:57.:08:02.

tomorrow. More news tonight in brief: Staff

:08:02.:08:06.

at a Co-op in East Yorkshire have been threatened by a robber who has

:08:06.:08:10.

made off with an amount of cash. It happened at this store on Market

:08:10.:08:12.

Street in Pocklington just before two o'clock. Police are searching

:08:12.:08:16.

the area by air and foot and appealing for witnesses.

:08:16.:08:19.

A charity in Scunthorpe says the number of families asking for

:08:19.:08:22.

emergency food parcels to help them is rising every month. The Foodbank

:08:22.:08:26.

has been open for a year and has already helped more than 1,000

:08:26.:08:29.

people living in poverty. Volunteers say the rising price of

:08:29.:08:33.

food is making their work even more important.

:08:33.:08:36.

Unemployed people in Hull are living in one of the toughest

:08:36.:08:40.

cities in the country to find a job. Over the last five years, people

:08:40.:08:43.

looking for work have made up a greater percentage of the

:08:43.:08:47.

population in Hull than anywhere else in the country. Now, there are

:08:47.:08:50.

concerns that people are having to take jobs that they are

:08:50.:08:54.

overqualified for just to pay the bills and this is knocking some out

:08:54.:08:57.

of the jobs market completely. Our Business Correspondent, Paul Murphy,

:08:57.:09:07.
:09:07.:09:09.

This lottery-funded project in Hull is trying to give these young

:09:09.:09:14.

people some of the skills needed to apply for jobs and to market

:09:14.:09:18.

themselves. But they know the job market in the city has rarely been

:09:18.:09:24.

tougher. Most places are looking for experience or licences and if

:09:24.:09:29.

you haven't got them it is a struggle because you haven't got

:09:29.:09:34.

the money -- money all licences. have been looking on website and

:09:34.:09:39.

handing out see beats and it has been horrible. One person through

:09:39.:09:45.

my CV in the bin because I was under 18. From 16 to 64, the rate

:09:45.:09:49.

of joblessness in the city has increased more than anywhere in the

:09:49.:09:55.

UK. Why does Hull have these problems with unemployment? Experts

:09:55.:09:59.

analysing the figures say it is the lowest skilled workers who are

:09:59.:10:03.

being driven out of the jobs market as it becomes ever more competitive.

:10:03.:10:09.

The problem with Hull, they say, is that it has far too many low-

:10:09.:10:14.

skilled workers. This recruitment specialists says the impact of

:10:14.:10:19.

recession means employers will no longer take a risk on employee in

:10:19.:10:22.

the Blair was killed under- qualified. Companies are desperate

:10:22.:10:27.

to recruit as they recover from the recession but they need people with

:10:27.:10:32.

relevant skills and experience to encourage them to take people on.

:10:32.:10:36.

But gaining vital experience is difficult for those with few

:10:36.:10:41.

qualifications. It doesn't mean they are low-quality workers or

:10:41.:10:46.

less dedicated it is just that they are less academic. We try to chain

:10:46.:10:50.

-- train them to a point where their skills are improved so that

:10:50.:10:56.

employers think they are worth taking on. In an employer's market,

:10:56.:10:59.

getting on the first run it is perhaps the toughest step of all

:10:59.:11:03.

but these young people are not giving up hope.

:11:03.:11:09.

Diana Johnson is the MP for Hull North and joins me now.

:11:09.:11:12.

Unemployment in Hull is the highest in the country and your

:11:13.:11:16.

constituency is suffering particularly. Why are things so bad

:11:16.:11:23.

in Hull? First, it is disappointing to hear those figures and I think

:11:23.:11:27.

you describe some of the problems in Hull with skills and

:11:28.:11:30.

qualifications and attracting businesses to the city. It is a

:11:30.:11:35.

whole number of things and that is why we need to redouble our efforts

:11:35.:11:39.

to ensure our youngsters get the qualifications and skills they need

:11:39.:11:44.

and they get some experience. That is what is so disappointing about

:11:44.:11:51.

the future jobs fund which has been scrapped. In 2008, the figures for

:11:51.:11:54.

jobseeker's allowance were higher than they are now so how much blame

:11:54.:11:59.

does your party need to take? worries me now is that we are

:11:59.:12:02.

seeing massive cut by this government and they are starting to

:12:02.:12:07.

come through. I have a feeling these figures will get worse and

:12:07.:12:11.

that will be really trouble some for people in Hull. In the last

:12:11.:12:16.

couple of weeks in Parliament, we had a vote it to use some of the

:12:16.:12:22.

bankers bonus money to levy to pay to get more youngsters into work.

:12:22.:12:26.

Unfortunately, my party put that forward but it was voted against.

:12:26.:12:32.

It is just showing an example of what we need to do. We have just

:12:32.:12:36.

seen that people have to take on jobs they are over-qualified for.

:12:36.:12:41.

What impact will this have on those who have fewer or less

:12:41.:12:45.

qualifications or no qualifications? That is a difficult

:12:45.:12:53.

position for them. That is why it is so important that education and

:12:53.:12:57.

getting qualifications and skills is so important to our youngsters.

:12:57.:13:04.

The investment that has gone into education and the grants to keep

:13:04.:13:09.

youngsters on at school was vital to the future of Hull. I am worried

:13:09.:13:12.

that university fees are trebling and allowances are being scrapped

:13:12.:13:15.

so we are putting youngsters in a difficult position in preparing

:13:15.:13:25.
:13:25.:13:35.

them for the jobs market. We would You can get in touch using the

:13:59.:14:05.

are proud of it then send it in. Here is two nights. Thank you very

:14:21.:14:31.

much indeed. -- here is the picture I have noticed that you can spell

:14:59.:14:59.

in sob now on several of your tweeds! -- insomnia. Anyway, on to

:14:59.:15:07.

the weather. Apart from a few showers most of the region should

:15:07.:15:14.

stay dry tomorrow. A glorious end to the after noon today. Beautiful

:15:14.:15:22.

conditions. North Lincolnshire should be bright now and the cloud

:15:22.:15:27.

further south should break up soon. A fine ended to the day for most of

:15:27.:15:35.

us. Try with clear spells overnight. -- a fine end. The sun will rise in

:15:45.:15:59.

the morning at five m and set at -- 5 am. Showers tomorrow should be

:15:59.:16:03.

hit and miss. The breeze in the north means that temperatures will

:16:03.:16:09.

not be so good along the coast. But it does not feel so bad in the

:16:09.:16:16.

sunshine. Farther west, up towards 19 Celsius. There is some

:16:16.:16:22.

uncertainty as regards Saturday's forecast. Patchy rain in coastal

:16:22.:16:28.

areas but further west it should stay fine. Saturday and Sunday

:16:28.:16:36.

looks pleasant, mostly dry with some sunshine. That is the forecast.

:16:36.:16:46.
:16:46.:16:47.

We will join you again tomorrow Shareholders angry at the where

:16:47.:16:53.

Lincoln City has been the run will attempt a takeover tonight. An

:16:53.:16:56.

extraordinary general meeting has been called after �1 million was

:16:56.:17:03.

lost during a spell in which they dropped out of the Football League.

:17:03.:17:09.

It was one of the most painful days in club history. Relegation crept

:17:09.:17:16.

up on the club on the final day of the season. Since then, costs have

:17:16.:17:22.

been slashed and painful off-field decisions have been taken. Now some

:17:22.:17:25.

unhappy shareholders have forced an extraordinary general meeting to

:17:25.:17:32.

hold the direct us to account. We feel that we could effect

:17:32.:17:37.

serious change. -- holder of the directors to

:17:38.:17:43.

account. The members of the board should to

:17:43.:17:47.

consider their position and realise it is untenable.

:17:47.:17:51.

One man believes that the board will win the case tonight because

:17:51.:17:57.

of their block vote but that the overall issue is not cut and drive.

:17:57.:18:03.

This comes down to two things. The losses of recent years and the

:18:03.:18:09.

financial position that has resulted from it, and the fact that

:18:09.:18:14.

being in the conference is not good enough.

:18:14.:18:19.

Relegation is never good enough for but at this club it has led to

:18:19.:18:24.

bitter recriminations. How are those in charge of the club

:18:24.:18:31.

reacting to this opposition? They see the meeting tonight as an

:18:31.:18:37.

inconvenience. Certainly they want to move on with the signing new

:18:37.:18:43.

players and preparing for the new season. Their meeting is likely to

:18:43.:18:50.

take several hours. Both sides however believe they can find fresh

:18:50.:18:57.

ideas, new solutions, a means of taking the club for work in the

:18:57.:19:05.

brave new world for them of non- League football.

:19:05.:19:10.

Hull City's record signing, Jimmy Bullard, has been suspended for a

:19:10.:19:15.

breach of club discipline. He will be suspended for a fortnight during

:19:15.:19:21.

an incident during a pre-season trip to Slovenia. The club have not

:19:21.:19:29.

yet commented. Thank you for your comments about

:19:29.:19:35.

last night's Hull Trains story. The train operator has lost half of its

:19:35.:19:45.
:19:45.:19:46.

fleet due to maintenance issues. A huge response last night. James

:19:46.:19:52.

says, I really used those trains to get to London because they are so

:19:52.:20:01.

unreliable. John got in touch to say, I am a regular user and

:20:01.:20:05.

they're great when they are working well but they are not delivering

:20:05.:20:13.

the reliability. Andrew rates, I think it is one of the best

:20:13.:20:20.

companies in Hull. Good customer service and cheerful staff. Thank

There is just a fortnight until a big change takes place in local

:20:31.:20:37.

television broadcasting. The digital switch over. A health

:20:37.:20:42.

scheme is still available to the vulnerable and anybody over the age

:20:42.:20:52.
:20:52.:20:53.

:20:53.:20:58.

We are asking people to give a helping hand.

:20:58.:21:05.

Maggie Philbin is on a mission to help people effect the switch over

:21:05.:21:08.

from analogue to digital and insular that nobody who is

:21:08.:21:16.

vulnerable will be left without a signal. -- and make sure.

:21:16.:21:21.

There is no way of telling unless people tell us how they are

:21:21.:21:29.

watching. We are asking people, lend a helping hand, learn about

:21:29.:21:35.

the switch-over help scheme. But for Selby Vision at team has

:21:35.:21:41.

been on hand to help explain how people have to make sure of their

:21:41.:21:45.

televisions will still work next month.

:21:45.:21:51.

I was given some help by the Government because of my age. A

:21:51.:21:58.

date was organised and someone has come and given me a digital box for

:21:58.:22:04.

my second television. My main one was already digital.

:22:04.:22:12.

But you do not need to splash the cash. Add digital box will help

:22:12.:22:21.

convert most televisions. But you will need to convert before 17th

:22:21.:22:26.

August before analogue signals are switched off for ever. If you want

:22:55.:23:00.

International Jazz Festival starts this evening. Unlike previous years

:23:00.:23:05.

there will be no open air performances because of rising

:23:05.:23:10.

costs. Being at Glastonbury was a great

:23:10.:23:16.

thrill of but coming here to perform my own music is what I

:23:16.:23:25.

really love for. -- what I'll live for.

We have been celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Humber Bridge.

:23:30.:23:37.

That might be relatively young but it has had much work done. All to

:23:37.:23:41.

make sure that it remains in safe condition for the thousands of

:23:41.:23:51.
:23:51.:23:52.

motorists who use it every day. Technology has come at a long way

:23:52.:23:56.

since the bridge was first built. Over the years methods of

:23:56.:24:00.

maintaining it have seen some big changes.

:24:00.:24:07.

We need to maintain decent access. We have ways to get through with

:24:07.:24:12.

comparative ease. Peter Howell overseas a team of 96

movements like this cable breaking. It instantly alert engineers to any

:24:36.:24:46.
:24:46.:24:48.

potential problems. This may not look as impressive as

:24:48.:24:51.

it suggests. But it is crucial for monitoring the performance of the

:24:51.:24:56.
