Good evening. Welcome to the programme. The headlines: Yorkshire

:00:07.:00:12.

Water admits its pumps did not work on the night that homes in Goole

:00:12.:00:17.

flooded. The pumps have failed, but Goole flooded because of the

:00:18.:00:23.

torrential rain that came down with in two hours. A Hull MP says that

:00:23.:00:29.

cuts are causing people to right across the country. Another plan to

:00:29.:00:38.

buy the Humber Bridge. This time, from the people already run it. And

:00:38.:00:45.

the very wet Beverley races. We are suffering, but we are managing.

:00:45.:00:51.

After the rain, it is going to be a better day. It will feel milder. I

:00:51.:01:01.
:01:01.:01:05.

Good evening. Yorkshire Water have admitted that they bought a

:01:05.:01:10.

Buncefield when dozens of people's homes flooded in Goole. Three pumps,

:01:10.:01:15.

seemingly designed to stop working in heavy rain, could have prevented

:01:15.:01:20.

flooding during the storm in East Yorkshire. The company running a

:01:20.:01:25.

says that the pumps switched off to protect the equipment, and they are

:01:25.:01:31.

sorry that the customers were not protected. Waiting for the big

:01:31.:01:35.

clean-up to begin. It is the second time in five years that this

:01:35.:01:45.

bungalow has flooded. It is not my house, it is my mother in law's.

:01:45.:01:51.

She is 94 years old. It is really getting to her. I cannot see her

:01:51.:01:57.

coming back in here. I don't know. But time will tell. Everything is

:01:57.:02:03.

ruined. During Wednesday's downpour, residents say water was draining

:02:03.:02:09.

away. Then it suddenly stopped. Sutton -- some residents down the

:02:09.:02:13.

street always believed that there had been problems with the pumping

:02:13.:02:19.

station. After initially denying it, Yorkshire Water admitted that was

:02:19.:02:25.

the case. We did have a problem with our facility. Three of the

:02:25.:02:30.

pumps shut down, we believe. The pumping operation did continue. But

:02:30.:02:34.

they were down for about 45 minutes. Surely the Proms are not good

:02:34.:02:37.

enough if they are going to shut down every time there is heavy

:02:38.:02:42.

rainfall? That is not going to happen again. We will make sure

:02:42.:02:46.

this is put right. We will put additional capacity in on a

:02:46.:02:51.

temporary basis to make sure. That is to this will, too late for some.

:02:51.:02:56.

Some are forced to live in hotels. I think this a case of negligence.

:02:56.:03:06.
:03:06.:03:07.

They should be held to account for it. I am very angry. We pay it --

:03:07.:03:14.

repay all our rates, and nothing gets done. They should have had

:03:14.:03:21.

other options. They should have had a safety guard. They were at six

:03:21.:03:28.

pumping stations, and not all of them were on. There were times when

:03:28.:03:31.

only two of them were operating. That is not acceptable. It is not

:03:31.:03:35.

right for people to be out of their homes yet again. Yorkshire-born to

:03:35.:03:39.

have admitted that they are talking to some residents about liability.

:03:39.:03:44.

For others, the fear is not reserved -- renovations, but

:03:44.:03:54.
:03:54.:03:57.

Earlier, I spoke to Richard Sears from Yorkshire Water at the failed

:03:57.:04:01.

water pump. I asked him what went wrong. What went wrong last week?

:04:01.:04:04.

What went wrong was the weather. The reason Goole failed was because

:04:04.:04:09.

we had an extreme weather events. Residents said that they could not

:04:09.:04:16.

see their houses over the street. It wasn't the palms, it was the

:04:16.:04:23.

rain at fault? What Goole experience to was an extreme never

:04:23.:04:28.

put -- weather event. Three pumps stopped working during the storm.

:04:28.:04:34.

The pumping station itself carried on working. We had two very large

:04:34.:04:40.

pumps doing what they were designed to do. So people were being flooded

:04:40.:04:46.

because of the heavy rain? Let's be absolutely clear about this.

:04:46.:04:50.

reason Goole flooded was because of the rain. It did not help that the

:04:50.:04:59.

Poms did not work. The they had carried on working. -- if they had

:04:59.:05:05.

carried on working, no one would have been flooded. This was a very

:05:05.:05:11.

intense rain. Two weeks' worth of rain fell in two hours. So what are

:05:11.:05:15.

you saying? Are you saying sorry that it went wrong and it was your

:05:15.:05:20.

fault? We field desperately sorry for those homes which were flooded

:05:20.:05:26.

last night. Are you so it is your fault? I was in a customer's House,

:05:26.:05:29.

and he acknowledged that there was very little that we could do with

:05:29.:05:34.

the level of rain they came down. The pump did not work, and we put

:05:34.:05:41.

that right. We have put this rain - but we have put these pumps in. We

:05:41.:05:45.

are refurbishing them. We have put right what was wrong. The reason it

:05:45.:05:51.

flooded was because of the rain. It is rain in again now. If we get the

:05:51.:05:55.

same again this evening, will these people be flooded again? Absolut

:05:55.:06:02.

lead. Absolute yes, or absolutely no? At to look yes, because it was

:06:02.:06:07.

an extreme weather event. If it rained like he did last week, yes.

:06:07.:06:11.

It is a very difficult message to deliver. No system could have coped

:06:11.:06:16.

with the level of rain that fell last week -- fell last week. We can

:06:16.:06:20.

cope with stormy conditions, but what we cannot cope with is the

:06:20.:06:25.

extraordinary brain became down last night -- last week. Body say

:06:25.:06:29.

to those who are worried sick? we are desperately sorry for those

:06:29.:06:32.

who were flooded, and we have been there to help. We responded within

:06:32.:06:39.

10 minutes of the first -- customer contacting us. We help with the

:06:39.:06:42.

clean-up operation. We recognise that this is a traumatic event. I

:06:42.:06:50.

have seen their homes. We are there for them. Thank you very much.

:06:50.:06:55.

Let's throw this one open. If you live in the area, are you happy

:06:55.:07:00.

with that explanation from Yorkshire Water? How would you feel

:07:00.:07:05.

if the same rate happened again and the same event happened again?

:07:05.:07:09.

the same event happened again? Using get in touch with us. -- you

:07:09.:07:19.
:07:19.:07:28.

In a moment, the Lincolnshire town revived by lottery cash featured in

:07:29.:07:34.

a new BBC show. The group in charge of running the Humber Bridge has

:07:34.:07:39.

for the first time ever put forward a plan to cut tolls for the

:07:39.:07:43.

crossing. The Humber Bridge Board is going to last the government

:07:43.:07:46.

whether it can get a one-off payment and get rid of its debt

:07:46.:07:52.

forever. It could finally put a stop to tolls going up and up with

:07:52.:07:58.

inflation. Motorists have waited years in the hope that Humber

:07:58.:08:04.

Bridge tolls will come down. Now, just like the buses, two of us have

:08:04.:08:09.

come at once. This morning, the Humber Bridge Board has revealed it

:08:09.:08:13.

wants to buy the debt from the government, allowing it to slash

:08:13.:08:19.

tolls. It is similar to the scheme drawn up by 8 Hull businessman,

:08:19.:08:25.

Malcolm Scott. We feel that will be looked at favourably by the

:08:25.:08:31.

government. If they will speak to Malcolm Scott, I feel they can do

:08:31.:08:36.

it for the bridge. The Government wants to clear more than �300

:08:36.:08:44.

million worth of debt. The Humber Bridge Board want to pay �100

:08:44.:08:51.

million. If the government says yes, the tolls will be cut. Tolstoy

:08:51.:08:59.

lawyer's -- tolls for lorries will be cut to �12.50. If the results is

:08:59.:09:05.

a small toll to cover the costs of keeping the bridge maintained, that

:09:05.:09:11.

will be good news for this area, and for a very -- for a campaign

:09:11.:09:20.

that has worked very hard. Malcolm Scott says this decision is a real

:09:20.:09:26.

sea change in the board's chance -- stance. They have a now accepted

:09:26.:09:30.

that the bridges key to the social and economic welfare of the region.

:09:30.:09:35.

They want to reduce the debt and tolls. That is a real shift in the

:09:35.:09:41.

board's attitude. Unfortunately, it is doing it late in the day, and

:09:41.:09:49.

the cynic would say it is doing it for self-preservation. With a two

:09:49.:09:54.

deals up for consideration, it seems more likely than ever that

:09:54.:10:00.

the tolls will be finally cut. will not be until November until

:10:00.:10:07.

the government reveals whether it will take either option. Another

:10:07.:10:15.

want you will want to comment on. You can get in touch. More news. A

:10:15.:10:19.

teacher in Pocklington has been charged with having an unlawful

:10:19.:10:25.

sexual relationship with a people. He is due to appear before Beverley

:10:25.:10:31.

magistrates. The teacher has been suspended pending the outcome. A

:10:31.:10:35.

power station capable of producing enough electricity to power 500,000

:10:35.:10:41.

homes has got the go-ahead in North Lincolnshire. It will employ 600

:10:41.:10:46.

people during the can such -- construction. Another 100 jobs will

:10:46.:10:51.

be created when it is finished. It will be creating electricity from

:10:51.:11:00.

wood pallets. Humberside Police on standby to provide help to other

:11:00.:11:05.

parts of the country. Yesterday, they were called to Nottingham and

:11:05.:11:10.

Manchester. Units from both were also in London. As politicians

:11:10.:11:14.

prepare to return to Parliament, or want Hull MP has claimed that much

:11:14.:11:20.

of the trouble has been caused by young people who have become

:11:20.:11:30.
:11:30.:11:39.

disenfranchised due to government A massive clean-up operation has

:11:39.:11:49.
:11:49.:11:50.

taken place. These are specially trained public order officers.

:11:50.:11:53.

There is a special public or uniform which is seen on the

:11:53.:12:00.

streets. They are here to deal any incidents of public disorder.

:12:00.:12:04.

unit from Humberside Police was also sent to assist Manchester

:12:04.:12:09.

Police has violence broke out in Salford, and looters targeted shops

:12:09.:12:15.

in the city centre. Both the Lincolnshire and Humberside forces

:12:15.:12:20.

insist that helping riots hit areas will not affect the local policing.

:12:20.:12:25.

Thankfully there have been no such problems closer to home. One Labour

:12:26.:12:33.

MP says he fears for the future. Tuition fees have been tripled,

:12:33.:12:38.

young people feel disenfranchised, they are using this as an excuse.

:12:38.:12:42.

It should not be used, this is about a mindless violence and

:12:42.:12:47.

criminality, they should be very careful about how they behave.

:12:47.:12:52.

Today the Prime Minister said they could be no excuse for violence.

:12:52.:12:55.

is a complete lack of responsibility from part of our

:12:55.:13:02.

society, people feel they are right away their responsibilities, and

:13:02.:13:06.

their actions do not have consequences. Well they do have

:13:06.:13:12.

consequences. Tomorrow MPs from East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:13:12.:13:16.

will interrupt their summer break to discuss the events in Parliament.

:13:16.:13:21.

Like everybody else they want answers, and solutions to try and

:13:21.:13:27.

avoid a repeat of the scenes. We had a really big response on

:13:27.:13:30.

this story after last night's show, Danielle got in touch via Twitter

:13:30.:13:33.

to say: People describing the rioters as animalistic is unfair

:13:33.:13:39.

because animals never do anything as mindless as this without reason.

:13:39.:13:42.

Ben tweeted: Anyone who blames the riots on spending cuts should be

:13:42.:13:47.

ashamed of themselves. These "people" should lose their benefits.

:13:47.:13:51.

And finally Ricky had this to say: This was bound to happen with

:13:51.:13:54.

people not being able to discipline young people like they did. They

:13:54.:14:03.

now feel invincible and I'm not surprised. Early a I spoke to Karl

:14:03.:14:08.

Turner, the MP for Hull East, I asked him what he thought was

:14:08.:14:16.

behind this trouble? What is happening is people feel

:14:16.:14:20.

very disenfranchised. They say there is nothing to look for two

:14:20.:14:25.

when I meet them. You are playing politics with the cuts come a we

:14:25.:14:33.

should be talking about jobs they rhino's Future jobs funds, the AMA

:14:33.:14:43.
:14:43.:14:46.

has been scrapped. You are to doing it again. You're talking about her

:14:46.:14:54.

public politics, the person today was a schoolteacher. That is no

:14:54.:15:01.

excuse Quare? The man was a teaching assistant, that was an

:15:01.:15:08.

exception from the norm on this. They have state-of-the-art mobile

:15:08.:15:15.

phones, and close, you cannot link this to poverty? The government has

:15:15.:15:19.

to get serious, they have to pay for except that the debt reduction

:15:19.:15:23.

plan is not working, if people are feeling disenfranchised. When they

:15:23.:15:27.

talk about the police, they are talking about cutting them by 20 %,

:15:27.:15:32.

that will not work. You're doing party politics, what would you do

:15:32.:15:38.

in your eye in a constituency. You have described some parts of it as

:15:38.:15:46.

a war-zone, how would you tackle it? By not talking about jobs, I'm

:15:46.:15:56.
:15:56.:15:56.

talking about the Government's. I would speak to young people, I want

:15:56.:16:00.

to make sure that their parents know where they are. The Prime

:16:00.:16:04.

Minister has made the point that people need to be dealt with, they

:16:04.:16:09.

need to feel the full force of the locker, I except that. Would you

:16:09.:16:19.
:16:19.:16:21.

like to see them pay more tax. would accept that. I want bobbies

:16:21.:16:28.

on the beat, I am not trying to be party political. Thank you very

:16:28.:16:37.

much. Karl Turner there. And people-watching.

:16:37.:16:40.

Still ahead tonight: Hull City suffer a shock exit from the

:16:40.:16:43.

Carling Cup after being beaten by a team two leagues below them. And

:16:43.:16:47.

braving the rain at Beverley races - the umbrellas are out for a

:16:47.:16:57.
:16:57.:17:12.

Two nights photo is an -- tonight photo is near Bridlington. I had an

:17:12.:17:22.
:17:22.:17:23.

e-mail from Alex to Deakin's bad -- a bad. This shows how the BBC

:17:23.:17:28.

forecaster's get their forecasts. forecaster's get their forecasts.

:17:28.:17:37.

It has been a a poor day today. Winds of 40 mph. Tomorrow is going

:17:37.:17:43.

to be mostly cloudy, we should see some brighter spells developing. It

:17:43.:17:49.

is very unsettled, low-pressure never far away. It will not be as

:17:49.:17:54.

wet as today. You can see the satellite picture, outbreaks of

:17:54.:18:03.

rain and plenty of cloud. It is affecting Lincolnshire, a risk of

:18:03.:18:07.

catching some outbreaks of rain. There will be some dry spells as

:18:07.:18:17.
:18:17.:18:20.

well. Temperatures no lower than 14-15 degrees. The sun rise will be

:18:21.:18:30.
:18:31.:18:35.

at 5:30am. Tomorrow, a mild start to the day, a fair bit of cloud. As

:18:35.:18:40.

we head through the morning, the rain will clearer way. Some patchy

:18:40.:18:47.

showers. It should be dry in the afternoon, some breaks in the cloud.

:18:47.:18:54.

It will feel warmer tomorrow, if temperatures around 22 Celsius, the

:18:54.:19:00.

wind will not be as strong as it had been today. Friday will be

:19:00.:19:06.

similar, 22 degrees. The weekend will see some rain on Saturday,

:19:06.:19:10.

showers in the afternoon, Sunday will be the better day.

:19:10.:19:20.
:19:20.:19:22.

Temperatures around 20 degrees. The subject of uniforms came up

:19:22.:19:31.

last night, you tweeted this last night. Many helpful suggestions.

:19:31.:19:37.

That was helpful suggestions. A Lincolnshire market town which

:19:37.:19:40.

was given lottery money to help revive its fortunes is to feature

:19:40.:19:44.

in a new BBC One series. Caistor is one of six communities seen in

:19:44.:19:48.

Village SOS which starts tonight. Residents there used money from the

:19:48.:19:50.

Big Lottery Fund to try and regenerate one of the town's

:19:50.:19:52.

crumbling buildings. Our communities correspondent Vicky

:19:52.:20:00.

Johnson has been looking at how they got on.

:20:01.:20:05.

The Roman settlement of Caistor Inc was once a thriving market town.

:20:05.:20:10.

During recent decades it has started to struggle as a resident

:20:10.:20:20.
:20:20.:20:36.

explained. People do not go out here. They won it a lottery fund to

:20:36.:20:44.

transform their town. They were given a marketing executive to help

:20:44.:20:50.

drive the four project forward.. know we're going to have battles

:20:50.:21:00.
:21:00.:21:03.

all the way. It was a catalyst for wider change. It has really kick-

:21:03.:21:11.

start if everyone's confidence, Caistor will the place to be in

:21:11.:21:15.

decades to come. Part of the town there have gone into decline, we

:21:15.:21:21.

have reversed its. More money is coming into the town, it is like a

:21:21.:21:26.

hub that is spreading out into the community. BP Paula plays macro

:21:26.:21:31.

have achieved much in the last year. They are convinced that their

:21:31.:21:41.
:21:41.:21:47.

experiences should act as a beacon of hope to other communities. That

:21:47.:21:52.

is on tonight on BBC One. Hull City have had a shock exit

:21:52.:21:56.

from first round of the Carling Cup. They were beaten two nil at home to

:21:56.:21:58.

League Two side Macclesfield. Crispin Rolfe has that, and the

:21:59.:22:01.

goals from Scunthorpe's win over Accrington.

:22:01.:22:03.

Route One football it may have been, Route One football it may have been,

:22:04.:22:05.

but Hull City weren't expecting League Two opposition to do this to

:22:05.:22:12.

them at the KC. All 3 Macclesfield fans going mad at the prospect of a

:22:12.:22:16.

Carling Cup upset. And a few more might have wished they'd travelled,

:22:16.:22:21.

after Emile Sinclair committed dej vu in the second half. 2-0 to

:22:21.:22:25.

Macclesfield Town. But Hull didn't go out without a fight. Though

:22:25.:22:28.

they'll need to bury chances like this this season if they're to

:22:28.:22:31.

avoid the boos. For Scunthorpe, an easier night away at Accrington

:22:31.:22:36.

Stanley. Though they left it late to steal this penalty. The first

:22:36.:22:41.

goal going in from the spot with just eight minutes to go. The

:22:41.:22:44.

second from Andy Barcham on his debut taking the Irons through to

:22:44.:22:51.

the next round 2-0. $NEWLINE In rugby league, the Hull

:22:51.:22:54.

FC half back Sean Long has announced his retirement at the age

:22:54.:22:57.

of 34. The Former Great Britain scrum-half sustained a career-

:22:57.:23:01.

ending shoulder injury playing against Hull KR in June. He'd only

:23:01.:23:06.

moved to the KC Stadium last season. It's been announced that Hull

:23:06.:23:09.

Kingston Rovers winger, Peter Fox will return to his former club

:23:09.:23:12.

Wakefield next season. The 26 year- old has been the Robins' top try

:23:12.:23:15.

scorer for three out of the four years he's spent in East Yorkshire.

:23:15.:23:22.

The deal's been agreed after an approach by Wakefield.

:23:22.:23:25.

Judges have been in Lincoln today to hear why Steep Hill should be

:23:25.:23:28.

named the best street in Britain. It's in the running for the title

:23:28.:23:31.

after being shortlisted along with two streets in Scotland. The

:23:31.:23:34.

award's organisers - The Academy of Urbanism - say the street is a

:23:34.:23:44.
:23:44.:23:47.

success because of its historic past. We are going to be thinking

:23:47.:23:55.

about how the street is managed. Why a streets are successful, a lot

:23:55.:24:00.

of issues that make this such a fantastic street. We are here to

:24:00.:24:10.
:24:10.:24:12.

learn why it is so special. It is a chance for the women of Yorkshire

:24:12.:24:19.

to go all out on glamour. It is Ladies' Day, even the weather could

:24:19.:24:26.

not flash -- Batten the feathers of the fashion-conscious with heavy

:24:26.:24:33.

rain, began in was always going to be soft.

:24:33.:24:38.

None of the horses are in four-inch heels. I'm trying to stay on the

:24:48.:24:49.
