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

:00:04.:00:07.

Not welcome in Lincolnshire - a group of migrant workers living are

:00:07.:00:17.
:00:17.:00:18.

expelled from the county for anti- social behaviour. They do not play

:00:18.:00:25.

a part in our community. It is all take but no good.

:00:25.:00:28.

After flash flooding deluged homes in Goole, there are fresh claims

:00:28.:00:36.

vital pumping equipment failed. Join me live where Hull City are

:00:37.:00:40.

preparing to kick-off a new football season.

:00:40.:00:43.

Hoping to the first of her kind - we meet the Lincolnshire woman

:00:43.:00:50.

attempting a 300 mile international challenge.

:00:50.:01:00.
:01:00.:01:02.

And join me for the weather later in the programme.

:01:02.:01:07.

And good evening. A group of homeless migrant workers have been

:01:07.:01:12.

deported up for anti-social behaviour. The three Lithuanian so

:01:12.:01:17.

had been arrested and were causing a nuisance to businesses. Now, in a

:01:17.:01:25.

rare move, the local council has used European law to expel them.

:01:25.:01:30.

The three homeless migrants have been blamed for shoplifting and

:01:30.:01:34.

anti-social behaviour. They were expelled after ignoring police

:01:34.:01:40.

warnings. Local businesses have welcomed the move. The expulsion

:01:40.:01:47.

has helped. We really do notice the difference. They had already been

:01:47.:01:51.

charged by the police for shoplifting and public order

:01:51.:01:55.

offences. We will not tolerate this sort of behaviour from anybody.

:01:55.:02:00.

Hopefully we have resolved the issue in the short term. The

:02:00.:02:04.

feedback from members of the public and traders in the town has been

:02:04.:02:13.

very positive. Support workers say deportation is sometimes the only

:02:13.:02:22.

option. When it goes on a long-term, you say, we cannot make progress,

:02:22.:02:27.

so they are going to perhaps spiral downwards and get into trouble.

:02:27.:02:31.

Migrants who have lost their jobs have been offered free flights home,

:02:31.:02:36.

as have those in this case. But, in this case, the three refused that

:02:36.:02:41.

offer, and it because it is claimed they refuse to look for work, the

:02:41.:02:47.

UK Border Agency said it had been right, under European law, to expel

:02:47.:02:51.

them. We cannot run round the country expelling people just

:02:51.:02:55.

because they are not working. But, if they are not working, and they

:02:55.:03:01.

are stealing, and living rough, expelling them was absolutely, in

:03:01.:03:06.

this case, the answer. But this MP believes European law

:03:06.:03:11.

should not have been used to expel them. He thinks they should have

:03:11.:03:16.

faced a criminal trial in the UK. And as European citizens, everyone

:03:16.:03:24.

has the right of free movement. You cannot discriminate against some

:03:24.:03:30.

body that you could not use against a national in your own country.

:03:30.:03:33.

Economic pressures and a competition for jobs means migrant

:03:33.:03:39.

homelessness is likely to continue in Lincolnshire. Rare though this

:03:39.:03:44.

cases, it is unlikely to be the last of its kind.

:03:44.:03:48.

Don Flynn is the director for the Migrants' Rights Network. I asked

:03:48.:03:53.

him what his reaction was to the deportation of the homeless migrant

:03:53.:03:58.

workers. We have to be concerned about it. They are European

:03:59.:04:02.

Community nationals. They were exercising a European Community

:04:02.:04:09.

rides. If they had been unemployed as well. The view taken by the

:04:09.:04:15.

authorities, you cease to exercise European Community night on

:04:15.:04:22.

becoming unemployed, that is wrong. People were made vulnerable to

:04:22.:04:27.

deportation for that reason. should they have been deported?

:04:27.:04:32.

view is that they should not had been deported. There have been

:04:32.:04:36.

cases in the Immigration and Asylum Chamber of the High Court which

:04:36.:04:41.

have dealt with this issue. these three shoplifters, abused

:04:41.:04:47.

people, they were drunk in the streets, and still refuse to go

:04:47.:04:51.

home. I used saying they should be allowed to stay? I am sure there

:04:51.:04:56.

were many problems with them. These are common, anti-social issues that

:04:56.:05:00.

cause concern. The issue is whether deportation was the proper way to

:05:00.:05:05.

deal with them. But why should they stay there if they have been

:05:05.:05:12.

charged, been jailed at the expense of the British taxpayer? The law is

:05:12.:05:16.

clear about the circumstances in which people lose their rights to

:05:16.:05:23.

exercise free movement. Misdemeanours, shoplifting, anti-

:05:23.:05:28.

social behaviour, these do not constitute the sort of offences

:05:28.:05:33.

which permit people to lose their right for free movement. So they

:05:33.:05:36.

should have been allowed to stay here and go through the court

:05:36.:05:41.

system? This is not my view, this is the view of the courts. There

:05:41.:05:49.

has been a very important case in June which dealt with similar fact.

:05:49.:05:55.

The courts did it ruled that deportation was disproportionate.

:05:55.:06:03.

And it was unlawful. I think it is a danger, that the council have got

:06:03.:06:08.

themselves into. They might have taken an action which is deemed to

:06:08.:06:14.

be unlawful. Thank you very much indeed for talking to us.

:06:14.:06:19.

What do you think? Is the council right to deport the migrant workers

:06:19.:06:26.

when they cause trouble, or is that they discrimination? What other

:06:26.:06:36.
:06:36.:06:49.

In a moment: As local MPS are split over a

:06:49.:06:52.

return to the death penalty, there are calls to let the public have

:06:52.:07:01.

the final say. It is claimed a pumping station

:07:01.:07:05.

managed by Yorkshire Water could have failed during flash floods

:07:05.:07:13.

which inundated homes in East Yorkshire. The local MP and Goole &

:07:13.:07:16.

Airmyn Internal Drainage Board have told Look North they believe the

:07:16.:07:22.

station may have stopped working during Wednesday's floods. We have

:07:22.:07:25.

asked the Yorkshire walked about this, but they have not responded

:07:26.:07:35.
:07:36.:07:36.

to our direct questions. -- Yorkshire Water.

:07:36.:07:40.

Two weeks of rain fell on Goole on Wednesday, but there were further

:07:40.:07:46.

claims that it was not just the ferocity that caused flooding.

:07:46.:07:49.

Graham works for the Goole & Airmyn Internal Drainage Board. Initial

:07:49.:07:54.

period of time, these pumps went off. How do you know? From what my

:07:54.:08:00.

pump attendant told me and other board members have told me. If they

:08:00.:08:04.

have got nothing to hide, Yorkshire Water would be more than delighted

:08:04.:08:08.

to show me information. Resident who are insured were

:08:08.:08:16.

counting the cost. I am not insured, but that is my problem not somebody

:08:16.:08:20.

else's. What was your lot of money to replace everything? To replace

:08:20.:08:29.

two bedrooms, a living-room, kitchen, bathroom, hallway, quite a

:08:29.:08:34.

bit. They rely on the young ones to come out, but even the elderly once

:08:34.:08:38.

worked out with shovels tried to get the water away.

:08:38.:08:42.

In a statement, Yorkshire Water told us they empathise with the

:08:42.:08:47.

residence. They say in line with any extreme weather event, they are

:08:47.:08:52.

investigating how their systems work. Yorkshire Water denied there

:08:52.:08:56.

has been a problem with any pumping stations. We asked them to prove

:08:56.:09:01.

this by providing Look North with a computer record on how their palms

:09:01.:09:07.

third -- fed on Wednesday night. But they have been a unable to do

:09:07.:09:15.

this. -- fared. Lots of you got in touch after last

:09:15.:09:18.

night's programme. Sim in Scunthorpe says, it is a sad thing

:09:18.:09:21.

for those affected, but we will see more floods as more new houses are

:09:21.:09:25.

built. This puts strain on drains with concrete everywhere. Sarah

:09:25.:09:28.

from Grimsby says, I can't believe people have been flooded again. My

:09:28.:09:33.

heart goes out to them, especially those that can't get insured. The

:09:33.:09:38.

government should offer house insurance for them. And Mark

:09:38.:09:41.

Wainman tweeted to say, it just goes to show, if the rain comes

:09:41.:09:44.

down like that, history will repeat itself. There is nothing we can do

:09:44.:09:50.

about it. A man from Scunthorpe has been

:09:50.:09:52.

given a five-year anti-social behaviour order banning him from

:09:52.:09:56.

the town centre. 43-year-old Stephen Golubovic has been caught

:09:56.:10:01.

shop lifting a number of times. Humberside Police say he has caused

:10:01.:10:05.

a large amount of stress for retail staff who work in the town.

:10:05.:10:08.

Student nurses who were withdrawn from Boston's Pilgrim Hospital have

:10:08.:10:10.

been told they will continue their placements at Lincoln County

:10:10.:10:16.

Hospital and bases in Mansfield and Nottingham. Last week all student

:10:16.:10:18.

nurses were told to leave Boston after the Nursing and Midwifery

:10:19.:10:22.

Council said it had serious concerns over training. They have

:10:22.:10:26.

yet to explain the exact nature of their concerns.

:10:26.:10:28.

A family farm that has been a tourist attraction in East

:10:28.:10:32.

Yorkshire for more than 20 years is to close after an outbreak of

:10:32.:10:35.

E.coli. Cruckley Animal Farm near Driffield has been linked to six

:10:35.:10:39.

cases of the bug and now its owners have decided to close the business.

:10:39.:10:42.

An investigation is still underway to establish exactly how the people

:10:42.:10:47.

affected fell ill. The phone companies behind plans

:10:47.:10:50.

for a mobile phone mast in East Hull say there is no alternative

:10:50.:10:53.

site for the transmitter, despite a three-month protest by local

:10:53.:10:56.

residents. Campaigners have been running a 24-hour demonstration on

:10:56.:11:00.

Summergangs Road. They are worried transmissions from the mast will

:11:00.:11:04.

damage their health. Experts say there is no hard evidence to

:11:04.:11:14.
:11:14.:11:16.

support those claims. There are calls for a referendum on

:11:16.:11:20.

whether we should bring back the death penalty. The Tory MP Andrew

:11:21.:11:25.

Percy says the public should have the final say on the matter.

:11:25.:11:29.

Thousands have signed an online petition calling for Parliament to

:11:29.:11:35.

debate the capital punishment, but the majority remain opposed to its

:11:35.:11:39.

reintroduction. Here is our political editor.

:11:39.:11:43.

Almost half a century has passed since murderers were last hanged in

:11:43.:11:48.

this country, but there remains support for the death penalty among

:11:48.:11:54.

a large section of the public. Do you think the best -- death penalty

:11:54.:12:01.

should be restored? Yes, in some cases. For example, people going to

:12:02.:12:06.

prison for sex offences. The you think this should bring back the

:12:06.:12:10.

death penalty? Yes, because it would deter people from not doing

:12:10.:12:15.

the act in the first place. The death penalty is the most

:12:15.:12:21.

popular topic on the government's new petition has a website. Is

:12:21.:12:24.

facing competition attracts more than 100,000 signatures, the issue

:12:24.:12:29.

will be debated in Parliament. not think politicians should take

:12:29.:12:36.

this decision. It is where the public feel law should said. I

:12:36.:12:39.

would have a referendum on this and let people decide.

:12:39.:12:45.

Car but will punishment was abolished in the 19 Sixties --

:12:45.:12:51.

capital punishment. The last person to be hanged in Hull prison was a

:12:51.:12:59.

Lincolnshire woman. She killed her husband, Arthur, by poisoning his

:12:59.:13:04.

corned beef, and there are many who argue the death penalty should

:13:04.:13:11.

remain a part of history. Courts make mistakes. I am a lawyer myself.

:13:11.:13:17.

I have seen errors in a law, and it would be dreadful to think that

:13:17.:13:21.

somebody has been killed for an offence they have not committed. It

:13:21.:13:26.

is completely uncivilised, and I would be against reintroducing it.

:13:26.:13:32.

So borders of the death penalty accept the chances are they being

:13:32.:13:37.

reinstated to be unlikely. But many are argued that Parliament should

:13:37.:13:47.
:13:47.:13:53.

donate a subject that promotes Good evening to you. What other

:13:53.:13:59.

people in the legal possession saying -- profession saying? I have

:13:59.:14:05.

not conducted an opinion poll, but I would imagine that most people

:14:05.:14:12.

would be anti- capital published -- punishment. Polls suggest that

:14:12.:14:15.

people are in favour of capital punishment. Would you agree with

:14:15.:14:23.

that? No. The one not? I am opposed on ethical and moral grounds. There

:14:23.:14:29.

have been many examples the beginner cat since the death

:14:29.:14:37.

penalty was abolished where we know now that many people will put to

:14:37.:14:43.

death who will be has subsequently proved innocent. Science has moved

:14:43.:14:49.

on a lot since capital punishment was abolished in the 1960s. We have

:14:49.:14:56.

DNA evidence. I do not necessarily agree with that. If there was to be

:14:56.:15:04.

a fail-safe system, and everyone who was found guilty was 100 %

:15:04.:15:12.

guilty, a bid still be a place. MPs cannot ignore public opinion, and

:15:12.:15:17.

this is about getting the matter debated yet again in Parliament.

:15:17.:15:23.

you agree with it being debated? think if 100,000 signatures of

:15:23.:15:31.

there, and public -- parliament on to debated, it would do so. There

:15:31.:15:36.

is a financial debate as well. The likes of Peter Sutcliffe being kept

:15:36.:15:41.

in prison for the rest of their lives. I think that is a terrible

:15:41.:15:45.

argument, pitting the price of a life on someone. It is a cheaper

:15:45.:15:55.
:15:55.:16:00.

way of disposing of them. Why not let the people decide? I think he

:16:01.:16:04.

wants permission for the public to decide is one particular thing.

:16:05.:16:11.

This referendum. I am not going to back this up, but far and sure this

:16:12.:16:16.

has never been put to a referendum, because MPs are rather concerned

:16:16.:16:20.

that the public will want it back again. I am sure we will be talking

:16:20.:16:24.

about this. It will go on for some time. Let me know what you think.

:16:25.:16:34.
:16:35.:16:42.

Do you think we should be having a The time is 6:45pm. Not long to go

:16:42.:16:45.

until the big kick-off. Hull City are getting the new football season

:16:45.:16:53.

under way. The Lincolnshire women preparing for one of the most

:16:53.:17:01.

gruelling challenges in the world. Tonight's photo is of cliffs. It

:17:01.:17:11.
:17:11.:17:16.

You can see another one on Monday night at 6:45pm. You love work,

:17:16.:17:26.
:17:26.:17:28.

don't you? You were very friendly towards the last night. -- towards

:17:28.:17:35.

me. A I am scared to talk you tonight! Do you want to make things

:17:35.:17:37.

tonight! Do you want to make things worse? I will move on with the

:17:37.:17:42.

forecast. It has been a beautiful day today with lots of sunshine. It

:17:42.:17:47.

is going to be -- I would love to say he would be the same at the

:17:47.:17:50.

weekend, but we are looking at heavy showers on Saturday. The low-

:17:50.:17:53.

pressure is never too far away as we move into the weekend. We have

:17:53.:18:02.

frequent showers. There's not too much in the way of cloud around

:18:02.:18:10.

today. Sunny spells as we head into the evening. There will be a few

:18:10.:18:20.

showers at dawn tomorrow. Temperatures around 13 degrees.

:18:20.:18:30.
:18:30.:18:33.

These are the times of the high Tomorrow, there will be early

:18:33.:18:38.

brightness, but Shell has developed through the morning. Some of the

:18:38.:18:45.

show was will turn out to be heavy. -- some of the showers. There will

:18:45.:18:53.

be showers in the northern parts. 18 or 19 degrees, but Lincolnshire

:18:53.:19:01.

should see some dry weather. May be either -- maybe even some brighter

:19:01.:19:11.
:19:11.:19:17.

There is a weather warning on Saturday for the rain. Temperatures

:19:17.:19:23.

staying below average. I think it is easier if I do not talk to. It

:19:23.:19:31.

is too dangerous! Have a nice Hull City bring up the curtain on

:19:31.:19:35.

the new Football League season with the opening game of the season

:19:36.:19:42.

against Blackpool. Our sports reporter Damien Johnson is at the

:19:42.:19:51.

KC Stadium. The atmosphere is building nicely. It is a balmy

:19:51.:19:55.

evening here. It feels like five minutes ago that it was just coming

:19:55.:20:02.

to an end. Blackpool is getting -- Hull City and blackball are getting

:20:02.:20:10.

the season under way. It is a new look team for Hull City. Wise and

:20:10.:20:15.

methodical will be the best way described the preparation. There

:20:15.:20:22.

has been little fan fire -- fanfare about the new signings. Supporters

:20:22.:20:28.

are quietly optimistic. I hope it is straight promotion. If we get to

:20:28.:20:33.

the play-offs, are will be happy. think we will get in the play-offs

:20:33.:20:42.

at least, but I hope we don't fall apart. I don't think the play-

:20:42.:20:46.

offs... I do not think they are ready for going up into the Premier

:20:46.:20:54.

ready for going up into the Premier League again. This veteran striker

:20:54.:21:04.
:21:04.:21:16.

We have balance and scored with experience and young players. I

:21:16.:21:22.

think we have really proved the -- improved the quality of the squad.

:21:22.:21:25.

The Tigers remained unbeaten in their pre-season fixtures. They

:21:25.:21:30.

beat Liverpool and beat Chesterfield and Bradford City. One

:21:31.:21:35.

of the new arrivals said they need to get on to -- have a good start

:21:35.:21:44.

to the new season. We did quite well at the start of the season. We

:21:44.:21:50.

are keen and looking forward to it. The key could be how quickly the

:21:50.:21:56.

new signings settle in. There is hope that they will put in a

:21:56.:22:00.

serious title challenge. How much of the challenge of apple going to

:22:00.:22:07.

be tonight? Quite a big challenge. You'll will remember -- you will

:22:07.:22:10.

remember that they were in the Premier League last season. Many

:22:10.:22:13.

people thought they would go straight back down, and dated, but

:22:14.:22:18.

they put a good fight of it, going down on the last day against

:22:18.:22:22.

Manchester United. They have bought some new players. Ian Holloway is a

:22:22.:22:28.

very thorough man, and gets his team organised. It will be no means

:22:28.:22:32.

plain sailing for Hull City when they kick-off the new season at the

:22:32.:22:37.

KC Stadium. 7:45pm kick-off and expectation building nicely. Thank

:22:37.:22:43.

you very much indeed, and BBC Radio Humberside will be at all of Hull

:22:43.:22:49.

City's gains over this do coming season. As far as tonight is

:22:49.:22:59.
:22:59.:23:00.

concerned, the build up is already on BBC Radio Humberside right now.

:23:00.:23:10.
:23:10.:23:15.

Kick-off at 7:45pm. Scunthorpe's first game will be on BBC Radio

:23:15.:23:25.
:23:25.:23:26.

It is said to be the most gruelling and challenging endurance event

:23:26.:23:30.

Nowton -- known to man. But now Lincoln has the first woman having

:23:30.:23:35.

a go at completing it. Rachael Cadman from RAF Cranwell will be

:23:35.:23:40.

attempted to run, swim and cycle from London to Paris. She is

:23:40.:23:47.

planning to do it in less than five days. We have been to meet her.

:23:47.:23:53.

Imagine getting ready to push your body to the absolute limit. To be

:23:53.:23:57.

about to face a challenge so demanding, only seven men have

:23:58.:24:01.

completed it in the last 10 years. Imagine being the first woman to

:24:01.:24:11.
:24:11.:24:16.

30-year-old fight Lieutenant Rachael Cadman could be the first

:24:16.:24:21.

woman to complete the gruelling Arch To Arc Challenge. To do it,

:24:21.:24:27.

she will need to start at Marble Arch in London and run 87 miles to

:24:27.:24:34.

Dover. From Dover, she will need to swim the English Channel, a further

:24:34.:24:42.

distance of 22 miles, then cycle 180 miles to the Arc de Triomphe in

:24:42.:24:47.

Paris. All in five days. The achievement of it will be fantastic.

:24:47.:24:52.

That motivates me every day. To be the first woman to do it per be

:24:52.:24:57.
