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

:00:18.:00:21.

The East Coast is set for a multi- million pound government windfall

:00:21.:00:26.

million pound government windfall from companies renting the sea bed.

:00:26.:00:36.
:00:36.:00:39.

Businesses will know we are trying to grow in the local communities.

:00:39.:00:44.

Hull FC get a new manager. And forget Wimbledon, the three table-

:00:44.:00:50.

tennis then you springing up around Hull. A and we will have a weather

:00:50.:01:00.
:01:00.:01:06.

forecast. Believing. Millions of pounds is to be spent improving the

:01:06.:01:09.

lives of people on the Coast. The money announced by the Government

:01:09.:01:12.

today will come from renting out the seabed. The Coastal Communities

:01:12.:01:15.

Fund will get half of the cash paid to the Crown Estates by companies

:01:15.:01:18.

involved in things like windfarms, pipelines and dredging. Next year,

:01:18.:01:21.

nearly �24 million will be made available for the UK. Of this total,

:01:21.:01:24.

more than �18 million has been allocated to towns in England. Our

:01:24.:01:34.
:01:34.:01:52.

Business Correspondent Paul Murphy has this report. There's a real

:01:52.:01:55.

buzz about skegness this evening as the town begins its annual arts and

:01:55.:01:58.

music festival. Its just one way this traditional resport is trying

:01:58.:02:00.

to re-invent itself and regenerate. And so the possibility of extra

:02:00.:02:04.

funding to do this is music to their ears. We are concerned about

:02:04.:02:11.

the environment and we have flood issues. It's also busy up the road

:02:11.:02:13.

in Mablethorpe. But these seaside economies are highly seasonal.

:02:14.:02:18.

Something local businesses have long recognised. The holiday

:02:18.:02:21.

business has changed, especially with cars and short breaks where

:02:21.:02:26.

people used to come for a four- night stay fortnight. Now they turn

:02:26.:02:31.

up for a few days and move on. Community groups like this craft

:02:31.:02:34.

and modelling club are among those being invited to apply for the

:02:34.:02:40.

extra funding. It would mean we could go out as a group, we could

:02:40.:02:44.

hire a minibus today instead of getting people to drive us and

:02:44.:02:48.

splitting up into cars. It did mean we could have a good venue. At the

:02:48.:02:55.

moment we have a cheap, small venue. The Government's long recognised

:02:55.:02:58.

that Lincolnshire has some of the weakest seaside economies in the UK.

:02:58.:03:01.

Experts say any extra funding needs to be targeted to create long term

:03:01.:03:11.
:03:11.:03:11.

change. Local businesses will see investment in something that gives

:03:11.:03:14.

them confidence. That means when they are thinking about how they

:03:14.:03:17.

plan the future of their business they will know we are trying to

:03:17.:03:24.

help them remain in and grow in the coastal communities. We need to

:03:24.:03:29.

make sure coastal towns are the -- are able to benefit from the

:03:29.:03:32.

economic development we are seeing from the marine resources of this

:03:32.:03:35.

country. By sharing that money between the communities and the

:03:35.:03:39.

general taxpayer I think that gets the balance right in terms of

:03:39.:03:44.

helping to support development and create jobs. Businesses, charities

:03:44.:03:47.

and community groups will be allowed to apply for their share of

:03:47.:03:49.

this fund from April next year. For Lincolnshire's coastal towns, this

:03:49.:03:59.
:03:59.:04:05.

Paul is there now. How all this address the problems of the coastal

:04:05.:04:12.

towns? We talked to community leaders and they say it is

:04:12.:04:16.

important this fund is not just a lot of handouts, the money must be

:04:16.:04:20.

carefully targeted and one of the ideas is to look at creating small

:04:20.:04:26.

start-up businesses, which can exist and thrive outside of the

:04:26.:04:36.
:04:36.:04:42.

It will create a more sustainable economy. This is a substantial

:04:42.:04:46.

slice of money and many business leaders and groups are anxious to

:04:46.:04:56.
:04:56.:05:05.

get those applications in when the fund opens in April next year.

:05:05.:05:08.

pot of money being made available today has the potential to grow in

:05:08.:05:11.

the coming years and its thanks to the development of offshore wind

:05:11.:05:12.

energy. Our Environment Correspondent Caroline Bilton

:05:13.:05:22.
:05:23.:05:26.

explains. It's an industry that is growing at a rapid rate. In the

:05:26.:05:30.

coming years we here on the East Coast will be at the centre of some

:05:30.:05:33.

of the biggest offshore windfarms that are planned for the UK. Three

:05:33.:05:37.

large sites have been earmarked off our coastline. The Dogger Bank

:05:37.:05:41.

development is the largest one planned. It could consist of 2,600

:05:42.:05:48.

turbines. It will cover more than 3,300 square miles - that's

:05:49.:05:51.

equivalent to the size of North Yorkshire. Closer to shore there

:05:51.:05:54.

are smaller windfarms planned - Triton Knoll being the biggest of

:05:54.:05:59.

these. Each windfarm company will have to pay the Crown Estate for

:05:59.:06:03.

the use of the seabed. Half of that money will go into this new pot of

:06:03.:06:06.

funding that's being made available today. So thanks to what's

:06:06.:06:09.

happening out there we here on land could benefit from a pot of money

:06:09.:06:12.

that has the potential to grow as the offshore wind industry grows.

:06:12.:06:15.

Some would call this funding a sweetener though. Just down the

:06:15.:06:18.

coast here at Fraisthorpe for example the Dogger Bank windfarm

:06:18.:06:21.

will come on shore so it can be connected to the national grid.

:06:21.:06:23.

This will involve burying approximately 21 miles of cable. So

:06:23.:06:27.

there will be some disruption. does normal for this region to

:06:27.:06:32.

expect and the people of this region to expect a return on the

:06:32.:06:35.

investment and support we are giving this industry in all sorts

:06:35.:06:39.

of different ways. In fact, we probably have the biggest role in

:06:39.:06:46.

offshore when that moment in the world. The east coast is probably

:06:46.:06:53.

50 per cent of what will be built. So the money is there for the

:06:53.:07:00.

taking. We just need to make sure we shout loud enough for it. The

:07:00.:07:06.

mp4 Bob commenced -- Skegness drawings me now. Is this just a

:07:06.:07:16.
:07:16.:07:22.

The does not. And I'm delighted with this and as a because I have

:07:22.:07:25.

been working on this project for quite some time. It is a

:07:25.:07:29.

significant sum of money. 18.2 million for England, 24 million for

:07:30.:07:35.

the UK. It is an ongoing sum of money that people can bid for. I

:07:35.:07:39.

have already had discussions with local politicians and senior Local

:07:39.:07:43.

Authority officers to see how we could focus and get some of that

:07:43.:07:53.
:07:53.:07:54.

money off the East Lincolnshire coast. Could the east coast get its

:07:54.:07:59.

fair share of this money? I'd very much hope so. One of the

:07:59.:08:04.

fundamental reasons for creating this pot of money in the first

:08:04.:08:11.

place is to ride -- is to wait -- is to diversify the economy.

:08:12.:08:16.

Skegness and other time to -- towns have problems with lack of health,

:08:16.:08:18.

skills, lack of embryonic businesses. We need to make sure

:08:18.:08:22.

those who were determined to improve the lives of people here

:08:22.:08:27.

can bid for this money. Is there money compensation for many extra

:08:27.:08:32.

pylons, traffic queues and as we heard in a report, one wind farm

:08:32.:08:36.

alone it needing 21 miles of cabling. That will disrupt the area

:08:36.:08:43.

and the countryside? You should not be so cynical. This is a pot of

:08:43.:08:47.

money for people who live in coastal communities to genuinely

:08:47.:08:52.

improve their lives, to improve some of the health and educational

:08:52.:08:56.

imbalances that exist and to try to diversify the economy and give the

:08:56.:09:05.

private sector money to get them up and running to create a year-long

:09:05.:09:12.

jobs to diversified communities. Thank you. If you live on the coast

:09:12.:09:22.
:09:22.:09:40.

A chemical plant near Hull has been fined �30,000 by magistrates after

:09:40.:09:44.

a gas leak 18 months ago. More than 500 tons of a synthetic gas

:09:44.:09:46.

including carbon monoxide was accidentally released by BP

:09:46.:09:49.

Chemicals at Saltend. No-one was harmed by the leak and procedures

:09:49.:09:59.
:09:59.:10:07.

A woman from East Yorkshire left having to breathe through a tube

:10:07.:10:10.

following a botched operation says she hopes other patients will now

:10:10.:10:13.

be safer. Jo Roche from Bridlington was left barely able to speak after

:10:13.:10:16.

nerves linked to her vocal chords were severely damaged during a

:10:16.:10:18.

routine operation at Scarborough hospital. Naif El-Barghouti, the

:10:18.:10:24.

surgeon responsible has been suspended for a year. I said a long

:10:24.:10:28.

time ago if it saved one person from going on his operating table I

:10:28.:10:37.

would have done the job. I spoke to a woman who said she would either

:10:37.:10:42.

go to a different hospital, or wait rather than be operated on by him.

:10:42.:10:45.

He's enjoyed a long association with Hull City and today Adam

:10:45.:10:50.

Pearson is getting into rugby league. The football club's head of

:10:50.:10:53.

football is the new owner of Super League side Hull FC. He will stay

:10:53.:10:56.

on in his current role at the football club, while ruling over

:10:56.:11:02.

the rugby club. Our sports reporter Simon Clark has more. He has been

:11:02.:11:06.

part of the sporting landscape for a decade and now Adam Pierce and

:11:06.:11:10.

enters the world of rugby league for the first time. The deal was

:11:10.:11:14.

concluded while he was on holiday in Spain after three weeks of

:11:14.:11:19.

negotiations, although he had tried to buy them in 2002. I enjoy sport

:11:19.:11:28.

in Hull. As a Super League club it has been sorted out by the previous

:11:28.:11:34.

owners. But it could be driven on to higher things. He was going to

:11:34.:11:39.

go to Gateshead and watch them? chief executive paid tribute to the

:11:39.:11:42.

outgoing board for saving the club from an uncertain future 12 years

:11:42.:11:49.

ago. Today the new boss was welcomed. I am very excited because

:11:49.:11:53.

Adam's enthusiasm is infectious for what we can achieve. I have many

:11:53.:11:58.

ideas, so does he. I think it will be a very enjoyable experience to

:11:58.:12:03.

work with and open up this new chapter and really start moving the

:12:03.:12:08.

Cup forward. The takeover of any sports club is front-page news as

:12:08.:12:11.

it was with the Hull Daily Mail. The journalist believes the timing

:12:12.:12:16.

was right for all parties. probably doesn't need a new regime

:12:16.:12:19.

change in terms of ownership to take them on to the next level

:12:19.:12:24.

which the fans crave and demand that success. The takeover has

:12:24.:12:30.

generally been accepted by fans. The club has stagnated. We got to

:12:30.:12:34.

as high as we could get under the present regime, but they were not

:12:34.:12:41.

willing to push us on any further. Hull should be in the top few teams.

:12:41.:12:47.

Fine by me. No problem at all. The money comes, it comes. It has been

:12:47.:12:53.

good news all round. He could probably put affairs of the club in

:12:53.:12:56.

better order than they are now. Adam Pearson does not have to

:12:56.:13:02.

travel far from his present job to his new enterprise here at Hull FC.

:13:02.:13:07.

He says he has to sort out some tax liabilities for overseas players

:13:07.:13:15.

but other the mat, business as usual.

:13:15.:13:18.

Well, we can now join Radio Humberside's Matt Dean on

:13:18.:13:28.
:13:28.:13:31.

Sportstalk. What are fans saying about this dual role? It has always

:13:31.:13:36.

been an issue with Hull FC fans that the outgoing board has always

:13:36.:13:41.

been seen as an absentee one. But given Pierce and's track record I

:13:41.:13:45.

think there is universal acceptance to this news. The text we are

:13:45.:13:49.

getting through to the programme a very positive and reflecting that.

:13:49.:13:59.
:13:59.:14:06.

We have lots of text and calls coming through. Anyone listening

:14:06.:14:11.

and watching tonight, because we will be going online with it, we

:14:11.:14:16.

will appreciate you getting in touch.

:14:16.:14:21.

If you're one of the rugby league fans of football fans, what you

:14:21.:14:31.
:14:31.:14:35.

think about Adam Pearson having a We look forward to hearing from you.

:14:35.:14:40.

We find out how Hull FC get on under the eyes of their new Warner

Thank you for watching this Friday night. Still to come. Flying high -

the school which went from special measures to special mentions in

:15:06.:15:13.

just two years. And ping-pong tables spraying up in

:15:13.:15:23.
:15:23.:15:46.

Thank you very much indeed for that. I am reading an e-mail here from

:15:46.:15:51.

Brian, he is wondering how this place is pronounced in France. He

:15:51.:15:59.

is watching you while he is on holiday! He needs to get out of it?

:15:59.:16:09.
:16:09.:16:13.

We will see some sunshine around and quite a bit of cloud. The

:16:13.:16:22.

course looks set to be pretty windy and cool this weekend. -- the coast.

:16:22.:16:29.

There will be a lot of cloud down our coast. That said, it will be

:16:29.:16:37.

also very dry. There has been a lot of sunshine and Bridlington this

:16:37.:16:46.

afternoon. -- in Bridlington. The showers will fizzle out overnight.

:16:46.:16:53.

Most places will become drier with clear spells overnight. A chilly

:16:53.:17:03.
:17:03.:17:04.

night to come. The sun will rise in the morning at 5:01am. It looks as

:17:04.:17:07.

though we should get off to a reasonably bright start with a lot

:17:07.:17:12.

of sunshine around. Through the morning, we will find that cloud

:17:12.:17:17.

streams down from the North. Coastal areas looked to be pretty

:17:17.:17:24.

cloudy. There is the chance of a shower, although most places will

:17:24.:17:33.

be dry. It will be a chilly wind down that coast. Inland, we should

:17:33.:17:43.

get up to 17 or 18. We are still below average temperature for July.

:17:43.:17:48.

Generally dry, the best of the sunshine in land. La next week, it

:17:48.:17:56.

should be fine and warm. -- early next week.

:17:56.:18:03.

It is funny that people watch this programme on their holidays!

:18:03.:18:08.

One of Lincolnshire's hopes at next year's Olympics has been suspended

:18:08.:18:14.

after failing a drugs test. Bernice Wilson, a sprinter from Boston,

:18:14.:18:21.

tested positive for anabolic steroids after a race last month.

:18:21.:18:27.

She has been described as the rising star of athletics, but now

:18:27.:18:32.

it is a painful crash back to earth as it is revealed that Bernice

:18:32.:18:38.

Wilson tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

:18:38.:18:48.
:18:48.:18:49.

sample will be sent to laboratories Should any anti-doping West

:18:49.:18:55.

substances be found -- any substances be found that are on the

:18:55.:19:00.

anti-doping list, the athlete will be informed. And they can say then

:19:00.:19:06.

whether they will accept the charge or say they do not agree. Brought

:19:06.:19:10.

up in Boston by her foster family and originally from Dannatt,

:19:10.:19:15.

Bernice Wilson does a lot of her local training at the Prince Royal

:19:15.:19:25.
:19:25.:19:31.

It involves a lot of hard work. also works for a East Lindsey

:19:31.:19:36.

District Council. Today, the issued this statement. The council takes

:19:36.:19:42.

this very seriously and we will be discussing this with Bernice Wilson.

:19:42.:19:46.

It would be inappropriate to discuss with a parties. She now has

:19:46.:19:50.

the right to a full hearings. If found guilty of doping, this

:19:51.:19:57.

Olympic hopeful could be banned for two years.

:19:57.:20:02.

The wickets have continued to tumble at Headingley in Leeds today.

:20:02.:20:12.
:20:12.:20:14.

Lancashire were all out for 194. Yorkshire were chasing 200 or more

:20:14.:20:24.
:20:24.:20:24.

for victory. Nearly 80% of shareholders at

:20:24.:20:32.

Lincoln City voted to back those in charge at the club.

:20:32.:20:42.

Thanks to a women who got in touch last night regarding hold Mac been

:20:42.:20:47.

one of the most am -- Hull being one of the most difficult places to

:20:57.:21:21.

Thank you for those. Good luck if you are looking for a job.

:21:21.:21:25.

Just two years ago, it was one of the worst schools and the whole

:21:25.:21:29.

country and now it is one of the best. Hartsholme Primary School was

:21:29.:21:34.

so bad that it was put into special measures. It has turned it all

:21:34.:21:38.

round and has been classed as outstanding and the latest Ofsted

:21:38.:21:48.
:21:48.:21:53.

A day of celebration and goodbyes at the end of term. But there was

:21:53.:21:59.

an overwhelming sense of pride at today's graduation ceremony.

:21:59.:22:01.

achieve this in two years is unbelievable, it has never been

:22:01.:22:09.

done before. Two years ago, the school was in special measures. It

:22:09.:22:14.

is lessons like this treasure box activity at have put it back on

:22:14.:22:23.

track. The school has an amazing place now. It is full of life,

:22:23.:22:30.

creativity and energy. The turnaround has been unbelievable.

:22:30.:22:37.

If you look at the children, they are so confident, they are ready

:22:37.:22:43.

for the world, and it is a real credit to everyone who has worked

:22:43.:22:50.

here, the children as well. You've got the treasure? Fantastic! It is

:22:50.:22:57.

being except -- it has been inspected by Ofsted again and, this

:22:57.:23:02.

time, classed as an outstanding school. We have been working really

:23:02.:23:10.

hard and the teachers have been working as hard as we have. I was

:23:10.:23:14.

poorly this morning but I wanted to come anyway. The teachers are

:23:14.:23:22.

really nice, they encourage you to do stuff you don't think you can do.

:23:22.:23:32.
:23:32.:23:34.

There are three key words in the wall -- on the wall in the hall.

:23:34.:23:41.

They have changed everybody's mind said. Hard to believe this from a

:23:41.:23:45.

school that was flooded and also targeted by arsonist. The

:23:45.:23:53.

improvements have been seen at home. The way he learns, my son, the

:23:53.:23:58.

massive learning has really helped him progress. You worry about the

:23:58.:24:02.

future of your child. We chose to stick with it and I am really

:24:02.:24:07.

pleased we did. Next term, the doors will open at the school's new

:24:07.:24:17.

home next door. Lift-off for a much brighter future.

:24:17.:24:20.

Well done to Hartsholme Primary School for an amazing turnaround.

:24:20.:24:29.

Remember these? The toads we had popping up all over Hall last year.

:24:29.:24:35.

This year, it is table-tennis tables. 45 of them had been set up

:24:35.:24:40.

across the city for next month. They will be left there 24 hours

:24:40.:24:44.

per day for anyone who wants to have a go. We have been to see if

:24:44.:24:49.

there are any takers. Right across the city today, from

:24:49.:24:54.

public parks to unused shops. People from every age, from

:24:54.:24:58.

beginners to prose, have been trying their hand at table tennis.

:24:58.:25:04.

For the next four weeks, they are here to stay. I like it anyway, so

:25:04.:25:11.

it is a great opportunity to skive off work and play table tennis.

:25:12.:25:21.

is good fun, it keeps you fit. is the second most popular sport

:25:21.:25:28.

than the world. It will be one of the highlights of the Olympics for

:25:28.:25:37.

many. I say to the world, ping-pong is coming home! Organisers are

:25:37.:25:45.

hoping that excitement will spread to Hull. Once you put a table down

:25:45.:25:50.

in the street, it is like waving a magic wand. People are stopping to

:25:50.:25:55.

play, talking and having fun. Saturday, there will be coaching

:25:55.:26:04.

sessions for beginners just There will be a Generation Game,

:26:04.:26:08.

where more mature parents can take on younger competitors. There is
