Hello, welcome to the latest news from BBC Look North.

:00:06.:00:08.

Representatives from the Royal College of Nursing have been at

:00:08.:00:10.

Boston Pilgrim Hospital today, offering support to students

:00:10.:00:15.

withdrawn from wards. Last week all 100 student nurses were taken off

:00:15.:00:17.

their placements inside the hospital, with immediate effect,

:00:17.:00:20.

after the Nursing and Midwifery Council said it had serious

:00:20.:00:27.

concerns. Our correspondent, Vicky Johnson reports.

:00:27.:00:30.

There'd been no warning that nurse training at Boston Pilgrim was in

:00:30.:00:33.

trouble, so the abrupt decision last week to end placements has

:00:33.:00:39.

left students shocked and bewildered. Generally everyone's

:00:39.:00:42.

quite panicked about it because we don't know what's going to happen

:00:42.:00:46.

with placements. We don't know when they're going to go back, if we're

:00:46.:00:49.

going to go back. Some students, who're reluctant to be identified,

:00:49.:00:52.

were just weeks away from qualifying when they were told of

:00:52.:00:56.

the concerns about the learning environment. Today union reps have

:00:56.:00:59.

been at the hospital offering support to students whose training

:00:59.:01:05.

has disrupted. They just want a explanation. They want to know why.

:01:05.:01:10.

Their biggest fear is what is going to happen to be in the future? Am I

:01:10.:01:14.

going to finish my course? Those that started at the beginning of

:01:14.:01:19.

the year are quite concerned about what their future is going to be.

:01:19.:01:23.

Many students chose Boston Pilgrim because it's close to home. If they

:01:23.:01:30.

not allowed to return their future looks uncertain. A large percentage

:01:30.:01:33.

won't be able to carry on, that's for sure, certainly from my co-hort.

:01:33.:01:38.

At least 25% at a guess would have to drop out, myself included.

:01:38.:01:40.

University officials certainly hope that won't be the case. They're

:01:40.:01:43.

aiming to find alternative placements by the end of this week

:01:43.:01:47.

for the 15 final-year students who were about to qualify.

:01:47.:01:50.

They add that they're working hard to ensure other people's progress

:01:50.:01:57.

on the course isn't jeopardised by what's happened in Boston.

:01:57.:02:00.

Doctors in Lincolnshire have issued a warning about the dangers of

:02:00.:02:03.

counterfeit alcohol. Consultants working in Lincoln's accident and

:02:03.:02:05.

emergency department say they've seen a rise in the number of

:02:06.:02:09.

patients who've consumed imitation vodka. The counterfeit drinks often

:02:09.:02:13.

contain methanol, which is more commonly used in cleaning products.

:02:13.:02:16.

It can cause serious kidney and liver damage and in some cases can

:02:16.:02:21.

be fatal. Police in Hull have released CCTV

:02:22.:02:24.

images of the moment a statue commemorating lost fishermen was

:02:24.:02:29.

taken last Sunday night. The footage shows a group of men

:02:29.:02:32.

throwing a rope around the statue, before they pull it from its plinth

:02:32.:02:36.

and it crashes to the ground. The bronze statue weighs around 300

:02:36.:02:41.

kilograms. A man's in hospital with serious head injuries following an

:02:41.:02:46.

alleged assault in Grimsby. It happened in the early hours of

:02:46.:02:50.

yesterday in the Victoria Street area. The man was taken by

:02:50.:02:54.

helicopter to the Hull Royal Infirmary. Four other men were

:02:54.:03:00.

arrested. Now let's get the latest weather

:03:10.:03:22.

The headline for the next 24 hours is a little bit firmer than that,

:03:22.:03:27.

warm and humid. The risk of one or two thundery showers. This evening,

:03:27.:03:35.

it brightens from the south. 26 degrees, despite thick cloud. A

:03:35.:03:43.

warm night to come. Temperatures in Hull, 16 Celsius. It might start

:03:48.:03:53.

rain in places but as their cloud breaks up, we could see a few heavy,

:03:53.:03:58.

thundery showers breaking out. Hit- and-miss. Some places could well

:03:59.:04:05.

stay dry. Temperatures very much, of the warm side of normal. We will
