Good evening. They headlines tonight: MPs tell the Prime

:00:08.:00:16.

Minister the police should have been tougher on rioters. Why have

:00:16.:00:22.

our police been disbursing these youths so they can riots in other

:00:22.:00:32.

areas? Why the bus operators are fessing -- are facing the toughest

:00:32.:00:37.

test of a generation? Secret documents relieve -- revealed

:00:37.:00:43.

details of strange sightings in Yorkshire. Workers make this deadly

:00:43.:00:50.

discovery in a shipment. There has been a fair bet of cloud, will it

:00:50.:01:00.
:01:00.:01:05.

be any better for the weekend? -- appear remote. -- a fair amount.

:01:05.:01:09.

MPs from Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire have demanded a much

:01:09.:01:15.

tougher police response in future riots. Officers have been sent to

:01:16.:01:19.

assist other forces, and politicians say the police must be

:01:19.:01:24.

given more power to tackle criminal gangs. Parliament was recalled

:01:24.:01:30.

today to discuss the violence, with some of our MPs criticised for

:01:30.:01:38.

choosing not to attend. Thankfully, are a career has been spared the

:01:38.:01:42.

violent scenes which blighted many English cities this week. But that

:01:42.:01:46.

did not prevent a number of MPs from East Yorkshire and Lincoln

:01:46.:01:54.

having their say. Why have our police been dispersing these uses

:01:54.:02:02.

so they can riot in other facilities? -- these children. This

:02:02.:02:05.

veteran conservative that suggested the rioters should be rounded up

:02:05.:02:11.

and held at Wembley Stadium. It was clear many MPs wanted a much

:02:11.:02:18.

tougher approach. I do not think the ordinary policeman has got

:02:18.:02:23.

softer. But the management of the police has done, and I am afraid if

:02:23.:02:30.

they are not careful, this will happen again. There were a few

:02:30.:02:37.

notable absentees from Parliament. Alan Johnson could not get back

:02:37.:02:45.

from his holidays in time. Austin Mitchell spoke to us from

:02:45.:02:49.

California. He said it would not be a good use of taxpayers' money to

:02:49.:02:57.

fly back to London. I think it is because of a government economic

:02:57.:03:04.

policy. I have a contribution I want to make, but I will not sit

:03:04.:03:10.

there and listen to various Cabinet members and then squeeze my eight.

:03:10.:03:20.
:03:20.:03:21.

Into it. There is no reason why I should be there. -- squeeze into it.

:03:21.:03:26.

He should find out what is going on. I will not have a go at him, but if

:03:26.:03:31.

I was in he might -- if I was in his position I would be back at

:03:31.:03:39.

Westminster straight away. another corner of Grimsby, politics

:03:39.:03:45.

was not on the agenda at all stop these young people said they were

:03:45.:03:50.

shocked by the images. Respect in society has gone down for a while,

:03:50.:03:54.

people do not care about other people, everybody is fighting for

:03:54.:04:02.

themselves. It is a shame, because I do not think anyone in my eight

:04:02.:04:07.

friends would do that. Despite not basing this type of trouble,

:04:07.:04:11.

Humberside police have revealed bespoke to a number of people

:04:11.:04:17.

staring up violence on social networking sites. -- starring up

:04:17.:04:27.
:04:27.:04:29.

violence. -- stirring. They have warned that arrests could follow.

:04:29.:04:34.

Diana Johnson is a Hull North MP. I spoke to her and asked her whether

:04:34.:04:40.

it was worth recalling Parliament. I think it was. It is an

:04:40.:04:44.

opportunity for the prime minister to step out what takes -- set out

:04:44.:04:48.

what steps he has taken. I was concerned the Prime Minister was

:04:48.:04:52.

not listening to questions about the police cuts. That was

:04:52.:05:02.
:05:02.:05:03.

disappointing. You spoke about police cuts, at the end of the day,

:05:03.:05:09.

people what the police to be tougher with yobs. -- people want

:05:09.:05:14.

the police. I do not agree with you, Peter. People what the police on

:05:14.:05:18.

the streets. I think their concerns are still there, people are saying

:05:18.:05:23.

to me on a daily basis the 20 % cuts to the police are something

:05:23.:05:28.

they do not want. What do you think went wrong? I do not think there is

:05:28.:05:34.

a simple answer to this. Clearly there was criminality, looting,

:05:34.:05:40.

murderers, so that is all criminal offences. There is other defences.

:05:40.:05:45.

There is also the issue of society, we need to have a long hard think

:05:46.:05:51.

about it, consider what happened, do not rush into making knee-jerk

:05:51.:05:59.

reactions. What are at the other issues? Some areas have not had any

:05:59.:06:07.

problems. -- what are the other issues? Thankfully in sombre side -

:06:07.:06:11.

- in Humberside there has been no problem, but we need to consider

:06:11.:06:15.

issues like what we are saying to young people about their future,

:06:15.:06:20.

what jobs they will have, we must address that. We must think about

:06:20.:06:25.

the benefits system, what we say about encouraging people into work.

:06:25.:06:32.

It is not simple. You are implying it is about people who do not have

:06:32.:06:38.

jobs, some of these people do have jobs. Absolutely. You can see there

:06:38.:06:42.

was a primary-school teacher, someone who has just signed up for

:06:43.:06:47.

the army, an undergraduate, and that is why there is no simple

:06:47.:06:55.

cause for what is going on. There is a whole range of things we

:06:55.:06:59.

should consider. We need to think about what we expect of young

:06:59.:07:07.

people. Diana Johnson, thank you. Then a moment, a waste of money?

:07:07.:07:11.

Boston businesses give their verdict on the group that may pay

:07:11.:07:18.

to promote the town centre. The bus industry is facing the greatest

:07:18.:07:21.

financial challenge for a generation according to a report

:07:21.:07:25.

out today by the Commons transport committee. It says that cuts to

:07:25.:07:30.

rural bus services I damaging access to vital bus services for

:07:31.:07:35.

the young, old and disabled. It warns that even deeper cuts are

:07:35.:07:43.

available -- are possible next year. Bus services have been hit hard by

:07:43.:07:53.
:07:53.:07:55.

cuts. It is rural areas that are seen services disappear. 6pm, the

:07:55.:08:03.

buses get less and less. Old people are suffering. Jim Taylor has seen

:08:03.:08:07.

the largest number of operators going bust in the last six months

:08:07.:08:13.

than he has ever seen before. He had to cancel services from his own

:08:13.:08:21.

company. We have to cancel services, we are a business. If there is no

:08:21.:08:28.

money from the councils, supporting services in a rural area,

:08:28.:08:36.

unfortunately, they will call by the wayside. It is a reflection of

:08:36.:08:40.

the findings from the transport committee. They say the cuts are

:08:40.:08:44.

damaging the ability of the young, old and disabled to access vital

:08:45.:08:50.

services, and further cuts could make things worse. That is a worry

:08:50.:08:57.

for people like this woman. completely and utterly rely on the

:08:57.:09:02.

bus services, so when I heard a rumour they were going to cut it, I

:09:02.:09:09.

was quite upset about it, because I need this bus service. There are no

:09:09.:09:13.

plans for further cuts, but it is easy to feel the concern in the

:09:13.:09:18.

town. I think there are other cuts that could be made, but cutting the

:09:18.:09:26.

bus service should not happen. government says it is not then, it

:09:26.:09:31.

is local councils that are making the cuts. The government has made

:09:31.:09:41.
:09:41.:09:47.

no cuts, so we must look at councils. The debate will continue.

:09:47.:09:51.

Chris Briggs is the head of transport in Lincolnshire County

:09:51.:09:58.

Council. I spoke to him and asked him whether he agreed with the cuts

:09:58.:10:04.

being accounts will matter. It is correct, the government supplied

:10:04.:10:08.

the money and the county council makes the decision. The county

:10:08.:10:12.

council has had to make those tough decisions, but having less money

:10:12.:10:18.

means having less services. The decision was to protect other

:10:18.:10:23.

frontline services which are important to people, and therefore

:10:23.:10:26.

�1 million was removed from the amount of money used this to

:10:26.:10:34.

subsidise bus services. I think you will find the county council has

:10:34.:10:38.

done all of this, senior management level was reduced by around one-

:10:38.:10:43.

third at the end of last year. about all furred, up a service used

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:10:59.

to run on two days, and it had been cut to one day. -- Alford. That

:10:59.:11:08.

sounds like coppers. It does, but we need to make the savings.

:11:08.:11:13.

three years' time, will there be less bus services in Lincolnshire?

:11:13.:11:17.

I hope not, because the county council made the decision to make

:11:18.:11:21.

the savings at the front end, so hopefully there will be no further

:11:21.:11:26.

cuts if the government funding remains as promised, and we will do

:11:26.:11:36.
:11:36.:11:39.

If you have got a view on this one then throw it open. The best way of

:11:39.:11:43.

providing bus services in rural areas, should do routes be

:11:43.:11:53.
:11:53.:12:06.

We will have some of your stories. Some more news now, the company

:12:06.:12:09.

wanting to build a new power- station in North Lincolnshire,

:12:10.:12:14.

creating hundreds of jobs, says there will not proceed with the

:12:14.:12:18.

plans and silicates reassurances from the Government. The plant was

:12:18.:12:23.

given the go-ahead yesterday, but says it will not progress unless

:12:23.:12:27.

the Government gives guarantees of future subsidy levels.

:12:27.:12:31.

Plan is for a tidal power device in the Humber to generate electricity

:12:31.:12:35.

have been approved by Parliament. The device is thought to be the

:12:35.:12:39.

first in its kind in the country. It will use the tidal power of

:12:39.:12:43.

their estuary to create electricity to power the D in Hull. It is

:12:43.:12:51.

expected to be deployed in autumn. -- The Deep in Hull. We'd talked

:12:51.:13:01.

about the controversy surrounding this Hull bed -- BID of which

:13:01.:13:03.

provides help for companies by charging them.

:13:03.:13:07.

Not everybody wants is we have heard from companies in Boston who

:13:07.:13:13.

are not happy with their BID organisation.

:13:13.:13:19.

This picture has been paying the compulsory levy to Boston Business

:13:19.:13:24.

improvement District, or BID, 43 years. Like the majority of

:13:24.:13:29.

businesses in Boston he did not join -- board for this. When the

:13:30.:13:33.

form came through the post, I have felt it was junk mail and I ignored

:13:33.:13:39.

it. Maybe we were the only people who didn't know it, but because we

:13:39.:13:46.

did that it felt that was a vote of yes. End Boston, beds are entitled

:13:46.:13:56.
:13:56.:13:56.

to take 1% of the value. -- BIDs. For a small shop, annual fee is one

:13:56.:14:02.

on -- a couple of hundred pounds. This shopkeeper believes the

:14:02.:14:07.

organisation is a waste of money. And at the moment, I think the BID

:14:07.:14:13.

is operating the way they always have operated, which is just too

:14:13.:14:16.

write things down on paper, give us a list of what they are proposing

:14:16.:14:22.

to do, and never actually doing it. Boston BID says its achievement is

:14:22.:14:28.

to create a safer shopping area and more welcoming town. That has

:14:28.:14:35.

benefited is is is directly area. A number of town ranges are claimed

:14:35.:14:40.

to have greatly improved the shopping area. This shop owner says

:14:40.:14:45.

there BID is worth every penny of the compulsory levy. It is all to

:14:45.:14:50.

promote and enhance the town of Boston. We do a lot of things

:14:50.:14:54.

behind the scene which people do not realise. It is not possible for

:14:54.:14:59.

us to do something for every single business, what we try to do is do

:14:59.:15:03.

something that is good for Boston. That will then have a knock-on

:15:03.:15:08.

effect for the businesses in Boston. It will be another two years before

:15:08.:15:11.

businesses can vote on whether they want to keep the Business

:15:11.:15:14.

improvement District, until then opinions are likely to remain

:15:14.:15:24.
:15:24.:15:24.

divided. If you have got a local bed, how does it work? Do you think

:15:24.:15:30.

you get value for money, get in touch.

:15:30.:15:37.

It time is 6:45pm. Still ahead: the striker spotted on YouTube but who

:15:37.:15:41.

is hoping to help Lincoln City bounce back into the Football

:15:41.:15:44.

League. The deadly stowaways discovered by

:15:44.:15:54.
:15:54.:15:57.

Do not forget if you have got a photograph you are proud of, send

:15:57.:16:03.

it in. Tonight's is taken by Paul McCafferty. It is of Rippingale in

:16:03.:16:10.

Lincolnshire. Thank you for that. Goody evening, Lisa. What of

:16:10.:16:14.

confidence for you say that Peter has been very cruel to Lisa this

:16:14.:16:19.

week but is she not giving him back as much as she gets, good on you,

:16:19.:16:28.

Karel! I do not know what they are It has been a mild day to day, we

:16:28.:16:33.

have reached 22 degrees are but we are set for some cloud but there

:16:33.:16:36.

will be some brightness. If you look at the pressure charts for

:16:36.:16:40.

tomorrow, we have a weather front out in the Atlantic which is

:16:40.:16:47.

heading our way. It stars to Brighton and then clouds over.

:16:47.:16:53.

Today, you can see on the satellite picture that there is some cloud.

:16:53.:16:58.

There have been some heavy showers. Overnight we are going to see some

:16:58.:17:02.

patchy light rain and drizzle. That will tend to die away by the end of

:17:03.:17:08.

the night. It will be a mild night with temperatures of 13 or 14

:17:08.:17:16.

degrees. Looking at the Sun, it rises in the morning and sex at

:17:16.:17:26.

8:37pm. Their next -- sects in the evening. Tomorrow will not be too

:17:26.:17:33.

cold, there will be a fair amount of cloud. As we go through the day

:17:33.:17:36.

we see the damp mist clearing and the Clyde will start to break we

:17:36.:17:44.

will see some brighter spells. The cloud will be thickening from the

:17:44.:17:51.

West. Temperatures tomorrow are run roundabout 19 degrees as a high. It

:17:51.:17:56.

may be 21 in Boston. Rain to come on Friday evening, there will be

:17:56.:18:00.

further rain on Saturday morning. Once that clears away the rest of

:18:00.:18:05.

the weekend is brighter. There will be a scattering of showers but many

:18:05.:18:15.
:18:15.:18:21.

Turn the sound down, it looks like Lincoln City are preparing to kick

:18:21.:18:26.

off the new season when they travelled to size port. Fans will

:18:26.:18:29.

hope for a strong start to the season as they try to bounce back

:18:29.:18:36.

into the Football League. BBC Lincolnshire's sports editor has

:18:36.:18:42.

been assessing their chances. The last three months have been

:18:42.:18:44.

pretty traumatic for Lincoln City supporters have they has replayed

:18:44.:18:51.

the goals that relegated them again and again. It seems to be, looking

:18:51.:18:56.

at other football teams, the longer you're out the harder it is to get

:18:56.:19:01.

back in. They have to make every effort to get back. Said the has

:19:01.:19:09.

had to cut its budget. The fault of a no confidence vote. In has been a

:19:09.:19:16.

difficult last few months, lot of things going on. The relegation to

:19:16.:19:22.

non-league, lots of cost cutting is to be made. A hopefully we have

:19:22.:19:25.

come through all of that and we are looking forward to starting the new

:19:25.:19:29.

season. Among the news seized -- faces, striker Bradley Baraclough

:19:29.:19:37.

who posted a video of his goals at college in America on YouTube.

:19:37.:19:43.

There are other new starters as well. There are any up -- lot of

:19:43.:19:50.

New Lad. We're not thinking about last season. When you come into the

:19:50.:19:57.

next season, it does not feel like that. They hope the new squad can

:19:57.:20:01.

help the squad bounce-back. It will take time to gel but a lot will

:20:01.:20:08.

depend on injuries. We have got a small squad. If we pick up to work

:20:08.:20:16.

he injuries to key players it will not help us, but we stay injury-

:20:16.:20:21.

free, who knows. Where in they were last relegated the bounced back at

:20:21.:20:24.

the first time. They will hope that his team does the same this time

:20:24.:20:33.

around. Thank you, good luck to them. The

:20:33.:20:37.

Court of Hull Kingston Rovers has broken his silence about leaving

:20:37.:20:42.

the club. Justin Morgan says it was mutual. Today he revealed he could

:20:42.:20:48.

be heading home to Australia. Still in charge but not for much

:20:48.:20:52.

longer, Justin Morgan addressed the issues of his departure for the

:20:52.:20:57.

first time since it became known. We had a good chat on Thursday

:20:57.:21:02.

about a few different things. It was not anything that came out of

:21:02.:21:08.

the blue. It is something that has been on topic for a little while.

:21:08.:21:12.

Despite the timing, Rovers are still have a chance of making this

:21:12.:21:17.

season's play-off. He was the man who ended many years with promotion

:21:17.:21:23.

to Super League in 2007. Since then he has moved them into two plea of

:21:23.:21:26.

finishes and lead them into a Challenge Cup semi-final, no wonder

:21:26.:21:32.

fans are sad to see him go. Just great for for what he has done for

:21:32.:21:38.

us. I think Justin Morgan has done brilliant for Rovers. It is a shame

:21:38.:21:43.

really, I think he will be well mist. He had the flair and optimism.

:21:43.:21:48.

I think he passed it on to the team. More can revealed today that he may

:21:48.:21:51.

find work home in Australia up with interest from clubs there. Have

:21:51.:21:56.

often got dialogue with them anyway, so now that might situation has

:21:56.:22:00.

become a little bit clearer, we have spoken a little bit more on a

:22:00.:22:05.

professional level, I have spoken to a couple of clubs at the moment.

:22:05.:22:10.

We will see if anything happens. More akin leaves with the fans'

:22:10.:22:17.

best wishes as they wait to see who will be returned as their new coach.

:22:17.:22:22.

Government files released today show a series of UFO sightings in

:22:22.:22:26.

Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire. Some of the incidence bait -- date

:22:26.:22:30.

back more than 30 years. The files, from the Ministry of Defence, have

:22:30.:22:34.

been stored in the national archives. Our reporter has been

:22:34.:22:41.

taking a look. It is the early hours of October

:22:41.:22:44.

5th, 1996. Reports comment of a red and green rotating light over

:22:44.:22:50.

Boston. Bright, no noise, spotted by police, members of the public,

:22:50.:22:55.

even the crew of a ship in the North Sea. It is just one of many

:22:55.:23:00.

unexplained sightings of UFOs over East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire,

:23:00.:23:04.

released today by the Ministry of Defence. The have received

:23:04.:23:08.

thousands of support -- reports since they end of the Second World

:23:08.:23:13.

War. When people hear the truth, which is that there has never been

:23:13.:23:16.

the resources for staff to investigate the. Nobody will

:23:16.:23:22.

believe that. The police a feature in many of the documents, in one

:23:22.:23:27.

incidents in 20031 witness even described how the Humberside police

:23:27.:23:33.

helicopter was being observed by a bright light over Hull. One a

:23:33.:23:38.

police officer runs a website which locks sightings. I had what one

:23:38.:23:42.

case where I have 70 police officers from six different vantage

:23:42.:23:46.

points geographically all watching the same object, why does that not

:23:46.:23:54.

get on the news? Perhaps one of the stranger sightings is that of a

:23:54.:24:00.

flying cigar spotted by five people over Hull and Scunthorpe in 1976.

:24:00.:24:04.

With more recent incidents in Lincolnshire, including wind

:24:04.:24:09.

turbines sector have been hit by UFOs, there is plenty of people who

:24:09.:24:19.

think theory is something out there. Thank you. Imagine being at work

:24:19.:24:22.

and suddenly seeing this just a few inches from your face. That

:24:22.:24:26.

happened to one Engineer in North Lincolnshire. He was dismantling a

:24:26.:24:30.

jet engine that was shipped in from America up when he got a rather

:24:30.:24:36.

nasty surprise. It has razor-sharp fangs and its

:24:36.:24:41.

venom can kill. Imagine their shock when engineers discovered this a

:24:41.:24:47.
