Good evening and welcome to Look North.

:00:13.:00:16.

Volunteers joined a police search as concerns grow for a missing

:00:16.:00:24.

pensioner. When it is one of hours we have to go and find her.

:00:24.:00:26.

Student nurses are told to leave their posts at a Lincolnshire

:00:26.:00:33.

hospital after "serious concerns" were raised about their training.

:00:33.:00:36.

This will be devastating for them and destroy the last few months'

:00:36.:00:39.

good work. Preparations for thousands of

:00:39.:00:41.

visitors as a weekend of top cycling begins in Beverly.

:00:41.:00:45.

And we get the real life story of the fox and the hound who became

:00:45.:00:54.

friends. And of course the all important weekend weather forecast

:00:54.:01:04.
:01:04.:01:08.

So many people have volunteered today to help in the hunt for

:01:08.:01:10.

missing pensioner from East Yorkshire that the police have had

:01:10.:01:16.

to turn some of them away. 77-year- old Marlene Wagstaff was last seen

:01:16.:01:22.

a week ago at her home. She suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Officers

:01:22.:01:25.

say support from the local community could be the key to

:01:26.:01:32.

finding her. We do know that she is physically

:01:32.:01:40.

fit, she can walk. We are hopeful to find her alive and well.

:01:40.:01:45.

A briefing for volunteers, one week since 77-year-old Marlene Wagstaff

:01:46.:01:50.

disappeared. She went missing from her home after a walk last Friday,

:01:50.:01:54.

and the disappearance has prompted a massive surge from Withernsea's

:01:54.:02:01.

local community. -- search. More than any city, everybody knows each

:02:01.:02:07.

other. It is one of ours. We heard this morning on Look North there

:02:07.:02:11.

was a requirement for volunteers to search for this pensioner in

:02:11.:02:16.

Withernsea. So we thought it was very worthwhile, we are all getting

:02:16.:02:20.

older and it could happen to anyone. I believe she has Alzheimer's.

:02:20.:02:26.

That is the problem for police, physically fit, Marlene was well

:02:26.:02:29.

known for her walking but surges have had to take into account the

:02:29.:02:33.

state of her health. People with this disease can get very confused,

:02:33.:02:37.

they have means they might not be able to meet themselves. It could

:02:37.:02:42.

be as simple as being not able to find their way home, but being

:02:42.:02:47.

physically OK. Or, in some places, it could be more serious.

:02:47.:02:52.

Today, 30 volunteers helped scour coastal fields miles from Marlene's

:02:52.:02:58.

home. For her family, it is the second surge of the week and

:02:58.:03:03.

despite the scale, these volunteers are not giving up hope. Speaking on

:03:03.:03:06.

behalf of much of the village, they want to be here today at the been

:03:06.:03:12.

helping with the search. They want to find Mrs Wagstaff. Everybody is

:03:12.:03:15.

helping as much as they can. Wherever we go, we are all looking

:03:15.:03:19.

out. I think everyone the village feels the same.

:03:19.:03:23.

There have been reported sightings of Marlene has since disappeared on

:03:23.:03:32.

Friday, but until she has found, a search by this community continues.

:03:32.:03:40.

We will continue to follow that story. In a moment, operators of

:03:40.:03:43.

First Hull Trains are told that they must do better after an

:03:43.:03:51.

equipment failure and various disruptions.

:03:51.:03:56.

The town's MP does not want his family using the hospital and the

:03:56.:03:59.

chief executive has had to apologise to patients for their

:03:59.:04:03.

porker. And now nurses have been withdrawn from Boston Pilgrim

:04:03.:04:06.

Hospital with immediate effect because of concerns about their

:04:06.:04:09.

education. The NHS Trust responsible for the site says the

:04:09.:04:14.

move will not compromise patient care. The unions say it will put a

:04:14.:04:23.

huge strain on the remaining staff. Student nurses from Lincoln,

:04:23.:04:25.

Nottingham and the Open University were told in the middle of their

:04:25.:04:28.

shifts the their placements have been suspended and they had to

:04:28.:04:32.

leave the hospital immediately. It is all on the advice of the

:04:32.:04:35.

Nursing midwifery council which regulates standards of training.

:04:35.:04:39.

They say they had serious concerns about the learning environment

:04:39.:04:43.

after meeting with the Government's health watchdog. Morale is

:04:43.:04:49.

unbelievably low. The things that have happened over the first part

:04:49.:04:53.

of this year have been devastating. We are at a point where we thought

:04:53.:05:00.

we were turning a corner, and we have had this monumental shock. It

:05:00.:05:05.

will take staff right back. It has been a torrid year for

:05:05.:05:15.
:05:15.:05:46.

Patience it a day have nothing but praise for the hospital. Care was

:05:46.:05:51.

superb from beginning to end. I have just come back to get signed

:05:51.:05:56.

off, everything has been perfect. I have no problems. It was all right.

:05:56.:06:04.

By common, he it was clean and tidy. -- I came in, it was clean and tidy.

:06:04.:06:08.

Unions are worried that the loss of so many staff will affect the

:06:08.:06:16.

hospital's ability to function. There are already flaws in the

:06:16.:06:21.

amount of care being given. Things have been changed to try and do

:06:21.:06:24.

just those issues, but it last of over 100 staff, we can only assume

:06:24.:06:28.

those issues would get worse. The NHS Trust has told us that

:06:28.:06:34.

students working here at Boston Pilgrim Hospital are in addition to

:06:34.:06:37.

their current staff and therefore their ability did deliver safe

:06:37.:06:40.

services is not reliant on their presence. They also wanted to

:06:40.:06:49.

reassure patients that quality of care was the first priority.

:06:49.:06:53.

It has also been said today that if the hospital is not suitable to

:06:53.:07:01.

train nurses, it is not suitable to care for sick and vulnerable people.

:07:01.:07:05.

I spoke to Professor Patrick Callaghan from the University of

:07:05.:07:10.

Nottingham, who have withdrawn 52 student nurses from the hospital.

:07:10.:07:14.

The nursing and midwifery council claims to have serious concerns

:07:14.:07:19.

about the hospital. I began by asking him what those concerns were.

:07:19.:07:24.

I cannot comment on that because they have not relate them to make.

:07:24.:07:34.
:07:34.:07:36.

I suggest you direct that question And yet you act on their

:07:36.:07:41.

recommendations? Yes, they are the regulatory Commission. They called

:07:41.:07:44.

us yesterday and requested with immediate effect, the withdrawal of

:07:44.:07:47.

students from Boston Pilgrim Hospital, because of what they

:07:47.:07:51.

reported to be serious concerns. This is a very rare occurrence.

:07:51.:07:55.

What does it say about the current standard at the hospital, to you?

:07:55.:08:05.
:08:05.:08:06.

Well, immediately, when I hear that, our principal objective is to

:08:06.:08:09.

ensure that when students are running clinical -- clinical

:08:09.:08:12.

placement figure to high-quality learning experience. They were

:08:12.:08:17.

suggesting that there was a danger to that, and therefore, we took the

:08:17.:08:22.

action needed on the instructions. What is being said, in effect, is

:08:22.:08:29.

that the hospital cannot be trusted to train and teach student nurses.

:08:29.:08:32.

It is the Primary purpose of the university with the hospital to

:08:32.:08:35.

train students. Again, the question as to the hospital of the care at

:08:35.:08:40.

the hospital is best directed to the hospital itself. Our concern is

:08:40.:08:44.

that the student's learning. Patients Association have said,

:08:44.:08:47.

what a damning condemnation of the care being provided by the Boston

:08:47.:08:50.

Pilgrim Hospital, if there is no confidence in its training of

:08:50.:08:55.

future nurses. That is the opinion of the patient's Association. Our

:08:55.:08:58.

Primary concern is the quality of the students' learning and that is

:08:58.:09:05.

why we took action on that. will these student nurses be

:09:05.:09:11.

feeling tonight? Pulled off yesterday, when they thought they

:09:11.:09:20.

were anyplace of excellence. student nurses, their initial

:09:20.:09:25.

concern and shock at the action we took, as requested, I e-mailed all

:09:25.:09:29.

of the affected students. I assured them of our concern for their

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:09:42.

learning and explaining why we were taking the action we were, and

:09:42.:09:46.

instructing them that we were trying to not disrupt their

:09:46.:09:51.

learning by finding alternative placement. I was informed that they

:09:51.:09:56.

were assured -- reassured by my e- mail. Thank you.

:09:56.:10:00.

Be nursing and midwifery council were unable to join us on the

:10:00.:10:04.

programme tonight. Let's throw this Open, what do you think about this

:10:04.:10:12.

as far as the condition of the NHS in Lincolnshire is concerned? Maybe

you are one of the students, and you want to comment? If you want to

Some more news now. Extra police patrols will target

:10:39.:10:42.

parts of the rail network in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire,

affected by cable theft. The thefts of copper wire can use huge delays

dealers as part of a crackdown on one of the country's fastest-

:10:56.:10:59.

growing crimes. A woman who lost her legs in the

:10:59.:11:05.

7/7 attacks has come to Lincolnshire to tell her story. Dr

:11:05.:11:08.

Gill Hicks had to learn to walk again following the explosion on

:11:08.:11:11.

the London Underground, which killed 26 of a fellow passengers

:11:11.:11:15.

and injured hundreds more. Although she says she will never forgive the

:11:15.:11:19.

bombers, the humanity that her rescuers showed her has become an

It is the one day I should have been in the same carriage I

explosion, she lost both of her legs in one second. It is as fast

Her message fits in with ours. It is one of action. She talks about

peace, as something we can all work towards and aim for.

I have never heard of it. No one was laughing here!

It is one of my favourite parts of Variable cloud with some sunshine

over the weekend. Things are looking quite pleasant. A pleasant

weekend. High pressure just about a in charge. Looking at the satellite

:14:51.:14:56.

sequence, there is a lot of cloud on it. A lot of it is high cloud so

:14:56.:15:04.

it is quite bright. A nice evening, all parts dry. Generally, that

:15:04.:15:12.

cloud will come and go. Some areas becoming quite cloudy. Inland,

:15:12.:15:17.

temperatures could drift back to eight Celsius. In towns, staying in

:15:27.:15:33.

double figures. Tomorrow will be dry and fine and bright. There will

:15:33.:15:38.

be some sunshine. It will cloud over at times as you can see from

:15:38.:15:43.

the graphics. We are expecting some big cloud breaks so sunny spells

:15:43.:15:48.

for most of us, meaning it will feel quite pleasant. It will be a

:15:48.:15:54.

little bit cooler along the coast. Inland, we will see the best of the

:15:54.:16:02.

temperatures. On to Sunday, it looks like it will be another fine

:16:02.:16:11.

and dry day. The warmest day. All in all, a pleasant weekend. Early

:16:21.:16:29.

next weekend -- next week it is Very nice work slipping in

:16:29.:16:34.

Spalding! "Must do better". That was the message from Hull's three

:16:34.:16:37.

MPs today when they met the operators of First Hull Trains. The

:16:37.:16:39.

privately-run train service has been severly disrupted in recent

:16:39.:16:48.

weeks by recurring equipment failure. Paul Murphy reports. A

:16:48.:16:52.

series of electrical and mechanical failures in the train units

:16:52.:16:57.

themselves has created huge problems for the company. For weeks,

:16:57.:17:00.

the service to London has been disrupted and the image of the

:17:00.:17:06.

company badly damaged. Today, the City's three MPs voiced their

:17:06.:17:11.

concerns. Today we set out very clearly that we expect them to sort

:17:11.:17:18.

out problems that -- problems of reliability. Also air conditioning

:17:18.:17:25.

and toilets, things like that. We will be constantly talking to them

:17:25.:17:30.

about this. The company has repeatedly apologised for its

:17:30.:17:35.

failings and is now back to running a full shed will service. One of

:17:35.:17:40.

the things I really love about the company is this -- is the passion

:17:40.:17:46.

that the staff has on being able to deliver good customer service.

:17:46.:17:51.

some cop -- for some, at the apologies are not enough and have

:17:51.:17:55.

event raised to fresh calls to renationalise the railways.

:17:55.:17:59.

cannot run a really like that. I want to talk to the regulators and

:17:59.:18:06.

get some decent service. At today's meeting, MPs also voiced concern

:18:06.:18:11.

about the wider economic damage of one-arm reliable train service. The

:18:11.:18:19.

company describes the meeting as constructive.

:18:19.:18:24.

An Olympic gold medallist will try and defend his title tonight as

:18:24.:18:29.

Beverley hosts a weekend of top cycling. It Clancy will be cycling

:18:29.:18:35.

through the town. Our reporter is in a prime spot this evening. Just

:18:35.:18:43.

how big an event is this? As you say, there are 80 riders

:18:43.:18:47.

taking part in this big race tonight. With the Olympics just a

:18:47.:18:52.

year away, it is an event they will be taking very seriously indeed. It

:18:52.:18:56.

is of course the national championship and so the competition

:18:56.:19:02.

here tonight will be very fears. A beggar might not just for her

:19:02.:19:07.

cycling but also for the local economy. Preparing today for what

:19:07.:19:11.

has become one of the biggest cycling races in the country. A

:19:12.:19:16.

one-off night when Beverley's Street are transformed into a

:19:16.:19:23.

spectacular race track. People will be going in excess of 40 miles an

:19:23.:19:28.

hour. People do not appreciate how fast these guys go. When you're

:19:28.:19:31.

stood at the barrier, you can actually feel the draught as they

:19:31.:19:40.

go by. Cyclists taking part tonight include this gold medallist. How

:19:40.:19:47.

does Beverley compared to other tracks? It is quite narrow round

:19:47.:19:51.

the back so I will stay at the front two out of trouble. It weighs

:19:51.:19:55.

you down slowly, all the accelerating and braking at corners,

:19:55.:20:00.

it that hard towards the end. Tonight's big race starts and

:20:00.:20:09.

finishes in Beverley's its market. Over the weekend, it is not just

:20:09.:20:13.

the elite riders who will get the chance to show off their skills.

:20:13.:20:18.

Tomorrow, 650 cycling enthusiasts will be taking part in their own

:20:18.:20:24.

rates -- in their own race. It is a chance for the organisers to

:20:24.:20:29.

promote cycling not just as a sport but as an active and healthy way of

:20:29.:20:36.

life. Bikes 10 to reside in gates - - in sheds and garages and people

:20:36.:20:42.

stop using them for so it -- for short distances. We would like to

:20:42.:20:46.

encourage them to use them more. is a big night for that time's

:20:46.:20:53.

retailers. It is unexpected boost to the economy. It is good, they go

:20:53.:20:57.

straight past the front of the shop. People come out and support it and

:20:57.:21:07.
:21:07.:21:16.

watch it. So Beverley will tonight take on a whole new appeal. The

:21:16.:21:20.

elite race will not start here until 7:30pm. Already though, the

:21:20.:21:25.

crowds are beginning to build for what promises to be a spectacle.

:21:25.:21:29.

There is a full weekend of racing in the countryside around East

:21:29.:21:36.

Yorkshire. Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers

:21:36.:21:39.

are battling it out for the final Super League play-off spot. Hull FC

:21:39.:21:42.

take on league leaders Wigan tonight while Hull KR are away to

:21:42.:21:45.

Huddersfield tomorrow. Both are hoping to improve on disappointing

:21:45.:21:50.

results last weekend, as Kate Sweeting reports.

:21:50.:21:53.

Hull FC were knocked out of the Challenge Cup after this defeat at

:21:53.:21:56.

the hands of Leeds Rhinos at the weekend. They'd started well with

:21:56.:22:00.

three tries in the first half, but Leeds stepped up their game after

:22:00.:22:03.

the break. But Coach Richard Agar thinks the team can bounce back for

:22:03.:22:13.

tonight's game against league leaders wigan. We have a lot of

:22:13.:22:19.

energy and enthusiasm. They know the task in front of them and while

:22:19.:22:24.

we had some disappointments last week, no one is going to feel sorry

:22:24.:22:28.

for us it not least ourselves. it's a match Hull KR will be

:22:28.:22:32.

watching closely, as the Robins are hot on the heels of the Black and

:22:32.:22:35.

Whites in the table. Both teams are vying for the eighth play-off place,

:22:35.:22:38.

and the Robins also have high hopes for when they travel to

:22:38.:22:46.

Huddersfield tomorrow. We have to win. It is not guaranteed. We hope

:22:46.:22:53.

to have a good game. It should be a close contest. If that result goes

:22:53.:22:59.

our way and we do get 10, for the main fixtures of the season,

:22:59.:23:03.

destiny is in our hands. Rovers went out of the Cup following a

:23:03.:23:06.

hammering at St Helens last week, but had won four straight league

:23:06.:23:09.

games prior to that defeat. They'll hope to carry that form into their

:23:09.:23:11.

trip to West Yorkshire Powerboat racing is coming to Hull

:23:12.:23:20.

this weekend. That game will be on tonight at 8

:23:20.:23:29.

o'clock. They have all the build up on television tonight. The high

:23:29.:23:31.

speed competition is part of the British Superboat Championships.

:23:31.:23:34.

Organisers say they expect huge crowds to watch the sport's top

:23:34.:23:39.

racers compete at Hull Marina tomorrow.

:23:39.:23:41.

Lincolnshire swimmer Lizzie Simmonds has qualified for the

:23:41.:23:48.

finals of the World Swimming Championships in China. Lizzie came

:23:48.:23:50.

seventh in the 100 metres backstroke final in Shanghai

:23:50.:24:00.
:24:00.:24:00.

earlier this week. The 200 metres is her preferred event.

:24:00.:24:04.

When it comes to pets, most people know that they've got to make sure

:24:04.:24:09.

that their animals get on. But one family in Beverley is managing to

:24:09.:24:12.

keep the peace between two traditional enemies. Eva the Jack

always be. Yes, it is a fox. Admittedly, or
