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

:00:08.:00:12.

More flood victims come forward as families are told it may be months

:00:12.:00:21.

before they can go home. �10,000 is needed just to basically get the

:00:21.:00:26.

building work done. Some of the worst broadband coverage in England.

:00:26.:00:30.

Now millions are to be spent improving internet access. A rush

:00:30.:00:33.

for the first tickets as Scunthorpe United prepare for battle against

:00:33.:00:37.

Newcastle. And a road trip with a difference. We find out how this

:00:37.:00:47.

Fourteen-year-old is driving his car across the country. And it has

:00:47.:00:51.

brightened up nicely for the end of the day, there is more sunshine

:00:51.:00:57.

tomorrow and I will have the full forecast later in the programme.

:00:57.:01:02.

Insurers will make us pay, now it's proved that Goole can flood. That's

:01:02.:01:05.

the fear of residence two weeks after heavy rain caused flooding in

:01:05.:01:10.

parts of the town. The full extent of the damage is still emerging.

:01:10.:01:13.

Fire crews received more than 130 calls in just three hours following

:01:13.:01:19.

the flash flooding. Yorkshire Water later admitted that its pumps

:01:19.:01:24.

failed. 50 properties are known to have been affected but the local

:01:24.:01:28.

council now wants to hear from everyone who's been flooded.

:01:28.:01:38.

Lindsay Smith has spent the day in Goole. A cooked breakfast and

:01:38.:01:43.

service with a smile, but it's no holiday staying in a hotel for

:01:43.:01:48.

these flood victims, they are displaced and displeased. Everyone

:01:48.:01:52.

thought it was like being on a holiday at first with the meals put

:01:52.:01:59.

in front of you but we have all had enough now and we want to go home.

:01:59.:02:04.

I would expect that Yorkshire Water should and would give us

:02:04.:02:09.

compensation. It's almost a fortnight since two weeks of rain

:02:10.:02:12.

fell in one afternoon in Goole. 20 properties were initially damaged.

:02:12.:02:15.

Yorkshire Water admitted three of its pumps failed at the Car Lane

:02:15.:02:23.

Pumping Station. The pumping operation did continue, we had

:02:23.:02:28.

emergency pumps but they were down for a 45 minutes. Surely these

:02:28.:02:33.

pumps are not good enough if they can go down? We have put everything

:02:33.:02:39.

right. That's little comfort to the Taylor family. With two children,

:02:39.:02:47.

they decided to stay in the house until it's repaired. It is going to

:02:47.:02:54.

run into �10,000 to get this repaired. Some members of the

:02:54.:03:04.

family are grateful the important things were saved. He was under the

:03:04.:03:09.

risk of drowning and then he would die. We had to lift his hutch up to

:03:09.:03:18.

there. Water was knee deep in the cellar of the Viking pub. Although

:03:18.:03:28.
:03:28.:03:38.

the beer is flowing again, there are still concerns. More people are

:03:38.:03:43.

now coming forward to found secondary flooding, water beneath

:03:43.:03:47.

the floorboards, it may be some time before we know the full

:03:47.:03:56.

effects of the floods. Joining me in the studio is the Conservative

:03:56.:04:04.

MP for Brigg & Goole. You have met the agencies looking into what has

:04:04.:04:09.

happened, what are the priorities? They have to establish what has

:04:09.:04:17.

happened. They have now initiated an investigation. Yorkshire Water

:04:17.:04:20.

are co-operating with that trying to establish what happened and how

:04:20.:04:27.

we can avoid this happening again. The first report will not be ready

:04:27.:04:31.

until November, is there anything that can be done short term to make

:04:31.:04:36.

sure they are more prepared? have got to have some short time

:04:36.:04:42.

measures, Yorkshire Water have already changed some of the

:04:42.:04:44.

programming of the pumps at the Car Lane Pumping Station so that they

:04:44.:04:49.

will not switch off in the same circumstances again. Really, that

:04:50.:04:56.

is not much comfort to local people who are watching the programme now.

:04:56.:05:00.

I did not think their comments were helpful in the slightest but we

:05:00.:05:06.

have got to establish what happened. Seeing that we would flood again is

:05:06.:05:12.

not good enough, we have got to be sure we are careful with our words.

:05:12.:05:17.

But the actually set that. We do not know why the pumping station

:05:17.:05:23.

was not working, that is what we have got to establish. Four years

:05:23.:05:33.

ago they said it was a one thin 100 geer event. -- and once in 100 deer

:05:33.:05:43.
:05:43.:05:44.

event. We do not expect it again. We are looking into the reasons why

:05:44.:05:49.

this happened. There have been improvements since 2007, a lot of

:05:49.:05:53.

residents have reported very good relationships with their insurers.

:05:53.:05:57.

There are always good and bad examples and if anybody is having

:05:57.:06:02.

problems they must get in touch with me or the council and they

:06:02.:06:12.
:06:12.:06:14.

will do what we can. Get in touch with me if you are affected. If you

:06:14.:06:19.

are in pool and you have a story get in touch in the usual ways. --

:06:19.:06:29.
:06:29.:06:44.

In a moment, the new beer being brewed by women, four women, in

:06:44.:06:51.

Lincolnshire. Talks have been held to find out why student nurses were

:06:51.:06:58.

withdrawn from the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston. Last week students were

:06:58.:07:03.

told to leave the hospital because of serious concerns over training.

:07:03.:07:10.

The Trust in charge said it did not know the concerns that caused this

:07:10.:07:16.

and there are fears it has affected staff morale. It is deeply

:07:16.:07:20.

unsettling, if that happens in your workplace you want to know what the

:07:20.:07:26.

problem is. The fact it has gone on for so long without any further

:07:26.:07:34.

explanation means that things have declined in the meantime. We're

:07:34.:07:38.

expecting a whole new wave of students in September, I cannot

:07:38.:07:43.

imagine that will happen in the current circumstances. That is a

:07:43.:07:46.

whole new bunch of people who are wondering what will happen to their

:07:46.:07:54.

training and their couriers. Money will be spent improving broadband

:07:54.:07:58.

connection in Lincolnshire. The county has some of the worst

:07:58.:08:03.

broadband coverage in England which, according to many businesses, bits

:08:03.:08:10.

Lincolnshire at a disadvantage to other parts of the UK. High-speed

:08:10.:08:15.

broadband is no longer seen as a luxury in many homes and workplaces.

:08:15.:08:20.

But in some media's, it is sadly lacking. This Lincolnshire

:08:20.:08:25.

transport firm has been struggling with sluggish internet access for

:08:25.:08:31.

years. It is like a blocked pipe. Any business like ours, a logistics

:08:31.:08:38.

business, or any rural business competing with businesses in town

:08:38.:08:41.

on in an industrial area and at a disadvantage because of the broad

:08:41.:08:51.
:08:51.:08:57.

bands we'd -- Rob and speed. These people used homing pigeons to

:08:57.:09:07.
:09:07.:09:10.

transport a desk which was quicker than using the internet. If we take

:09:10.:09:14.

�40 million and we looked at encouraging big IT companies to

:09:14.:09:17.

allocate their money to it plus be put some money in from local

:09:17.:09:21.

Government, together we start to build up a significant amount of

:09:21.:09:25.

money that really should help us to make a difference to broadband

:09:25.:09:31.

speeds across the county. A new generation of hi-tech firms based

:09:31.:09:34.

in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire are hoping to benefit from the

:09:35.:09:42.

extra funding. The rat initiatives going on with the smaller villages

:09:42.:09:47.

and initiatives like ours where recover wide area as while asleep.

:09:47.:09:57.
:09:57.:10:01.

Not one solution will fit all the problems. For the time being, many

:10:01.:10:06.

computer users in the rural parts must pay -- play a patient waiting

:10:06.:10:14.

game. What you think about broadband? If you have a comment on

:10:14.:10:21.

that you can get in touch. Rail commuters in East Yorkshire and

:10:21.:10:24.

Lincolnshire are facing the rail fare increases of an average 8%

:10:24.:10:27.

next year. It will mean an annual season ticket from Hull to Leeds

:10:28.:10:35.

will go up by �281 to �3,801. A season ticket from Lincoln to

:10:35.:10:42.

Skegness will rise by �203 to �2,747. For commuters travelling

:10:42.:10:48.

from Hull to London, their season ticket will cost �968 more. They'll

:10:48.:10:58.
:10:58.:11:00.

be paying for �13,080 a year. 200 workers at an East Yorkshire

:11:00.:11:04.

Building manufacturer have been told their jobs could be saved if a

:11:04.:11:08.

buyer is found for business. Staff were sent home yesterday after this

:11:08.:11:13.

company ran out of money. The ministers say they are confident a

:11:13.:11:21.

buyer can be found for Britspace and redundancies avoided. We are

:11:21.:11:24.

going through things with interested parties to show them

:11:24.:11:29.

what potentially they could buy. We have invited them to come down and

:11:29.:11:34.

visit us, you will chat them through it and be will be pushing

:11:34.:11:40.

hard on expressions of interest over the next few days. I rely on

:11:40.:11:44.

that job to keep us going, to pay for our house and our bells.

:11:44.:11:48.

Without that job I will have nothing coming in to do that so it

:11:48.:11:53.

will be very hard. An investigation in Thailand into the deaths of two

:11:53.:11:56.

Lincolnshire tourists suggests they were most likely poisoned by an

:11:56.:11:58.

unidentified toxin. George and Eileen Everitt from Boston were

:11:58.:12:01.

among five people visiting the northern city of Chiang Mai who

:12:01.:12:04.

died earlier this year. The Thai government says it hasn't found the

:12:04.:12:07.

exact cause of the deaths but it would tighten regulations on anti-

:12:07.:12:17.
:12:17.:12:24.

mosquito sprays. Thank you for watching tonight's programme. Later

:12:24.:12:28.

we will find out where this Fourteen-year-old is going in his

:12:28.:12:34.

toy car. And join me to find out why you may need to retune your TV

:12:34.:12:44.
:12:44.:12:46.

to get this programme and others Tonight's photograph is taken from

:12:46.:12:55.

a viewer. Waltham Windmill near Grimsby, by Phil Ramsden. Good

:12:55.:13:02.

evening, Lisa. I shall put you at ease and hide

:13:02.:13:08.

the papers. A viewer said she saw Peter in the last of the Summer

:13:08.:13:15.

Wine. If he would like acting lessons I can offer them. I cannot

:13:15.:13:24.

argue with that. It was pathetic. It has turned out quite nice to end

:13:24.:13:34.
:13:34.:13:36.

the day. A lovely day tomorrow. Dry Weather systems are staying away

:13:36.:13:43.

from us, a lovely day. Cloud increasing later. We are ending the

:13:43.:13:48.

day with sunshine but the risk of catching isolated shower has, for

:13:48.:13:53.

most of us it will be dry. It will stay dry with clear skies. It will

:13:53.:14:03.
:14:03.:14:04.

be cooler than last night. Temperatures down to 10 or 11.

:14:04.:14:14.
:14:14.:14:18.

Looking at the sun times. The high Tomorrow, a caller start, a

:14:18.:14:23.

beautiful start, clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine. It will

:14:23.:14:28.

stay dry in the afternoon, cloud starting to increase and a general

:14:28.:14:35.

increase across Lincolnshire later in the afternoon. Still a fine day.

:14:35.:14:44.

Coolest on the coast because of an onshore breeze. 19 or 20 degrees.

:14:44.:14:49.

Thursday it will be Chambery, sunny spells in the morning and scattered

:14:49.:14:56.

showers. The risk the showers could merge into longer spells of rain.

:14:56.:15:02.

We're not sure where the rain will be but hopefully it could be sunny

:15:02.:15:06.

spells and scattered showers. The sunshine returns on Friday.

:15:06.:15:16.
:15:16.:15:17.

Temperatures around 20 degrees. acting treat you missed, Lisa. See

:15:17.:15:21.

you tomorrow. There's been a rush for the first

:15:21.:15:23.

tickets available for Scunthorpe United's League Cup tie against

:15:23.:15:26.

Newcastle next week. The Premier League side visit Glanford Park

:15:26.:15:29.

next week and as our sports reporter Simon Clark explains, it

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:40.

They were queuing out of the door as season ticket-holders waited to

:15:40.:15:45.

claim the seats for the tie against Newcastle. A Thursday fixture does

:15:45.:15:50.

not seem to have dampened enthusiasm. I was here last time we

:15:50.:15:55.

played them at home and beat them. I am looking forward to it. We hope

:15:55.:16:01.

we can beat them like last time. beat them last time. This is how. A

:16:01.:16:08.

championship game which Scunthorpe United claimed a victory in. United

:16:08.:16:14.

are no strangers to big-name Cup opponents. They have played Chelsea,

:16:14.:16:19.

Manchester City, three times and also in 2010 Manchester United.

:16:19.:16:25.

They lost them all. Asked the Scunthorpe boss and he will tell

:16:25.:16:29.

you the game against Oldham and the three points at stake are more

:16:29.:16:34.

important than the game against Newcastle. From the fans' point of

:16:34.:16:39.

view, it gives you a beast playing a Premier League side, especially

:16:39.:16:44.

after you have suffered a season or relegation. Last year we played

:16:44.:16:49.

fantastic teams and great opposition. Some of big-name clubs.

:16:49.:16:53.

This year, we are further down the pecking order. Playing Newcastle

:16:53.:16:59.

gives everyone a lift. As they there'd be ground, the first league

:16:59.:17:02.

win is vital but the victory against Newcastle would put a gloss

:17:03.:17:06.

on it. And there'll be commentary of

:17:06.:17:09.

United's game against Oldham Athletic on medium wave while on FM

:17:09.:17:12.

it's Hull City's derby visit to Leeds United at Elland Road, and

:17:12.:17:20.

Meanwhile you can keep across Grimsby Town's progress at

:17:20.:17:24.

Braintree tonight on DAB and the web. And Lincoln City play

:17:24.:17:29.

Kidderminster Harriers. The BBC Lincolnshire team are on air from 7

:17:29.:17:39.

with all the build up. Kick off is I will be asking questions later!

:17:39.:17:42.

Thanks for your response to our story about Boston Borough Council

:17:42.:17:44.

launching a 'name and shame' campaign to try and combat

:17:44.:17:48.

littering. The authority has teamed up with the local newspaper, and

:17:49.:17:52.

will soon be putting the faces of those caught on camera on the front

:17:52.:18:00.

page. Many of you got in touch on this one. Miss Cooper texted from

:18:00.:18:03.

Grimsby: Using cameras to catch people dropping litter is a step

:18:03.:18:09.

too far and a waste of resources. Get your act together councils.

:18:09.:18:12.

Deborah in Boston tweeted: Watch this space to see whether Boston's

:18:12.:18:15.

CCTV plan actually makes a difference to us residents plagued

:18:15.:18:21.

daily by litter. And finally June in Burstwick texted: l think that

:18:21.:18:24.

it is not just people who litter who should be named and shamed, but

:18:24.:18:28.

also dog owners who think it's ok to let their dogs foul and then

:18:28.:18:38.
:18:38.:18:41.

leave it. That opens another can of worms! Thank you for those.

:18:41.:18:45.

Tonight's last Look North is the one you can watch on analogue. The

:18:45.:18:50.

area is going digital. Hopefully you already know that. You need to

:18:50.:18:55.

be watching us digitally and even if you have switched to a digital

:18:55.:19:00.

system, you will still have to do retuning to arrive. Crispin we

:19:00.:19:10.
:19:10.:19:11.

explain all. This is a bit of a landmark moment. Very much at the

:19:11.:19:16.

end of an era. It is freaky to see yourself played across so many

:19:16.:19:20.

tepees. Not just a change of channel, but the end of an era.

:19:20.:19:22.

Tonight sees analogue services across East Yorkshire and

:19:22.:19:25.

Lincolnshire go for good and that's because they're making way for new

:19:25.:19:32.

high powered digital transmitters, more channels, and a better picture.

:19:32.:19:38.

Even if you have digital ready TB, you will have to retune some time

:19:38.:19:47.

tomorrow afternoon. The end of an era. Tonight sees analogue services

:19:47.:19:52.

across the area go for good. They are making way for a new high-

:19:52.:19:58.

powered digital service more channels and a better picture.

:19:58.:20:06.

have to do a full retuning because you will find the not BBC channels

:20:06.:20:12.

will have disappeared. If you are struggling, there is an advice line

:20:12.:20:18.

number and also if you are eligible for help, you can still get help.

:20:18.:20:24.

We can converge or TV's. The BBC's services have a new higher power.

:20:24.:20:29.

The remainder of the services are low-powered. Tonight, the remainder

:20:29.:20:34.

of the analogue and low powered Freeview is switched off and the

:20:34.:20:37.

high-powered service starts. That is the reason for asking everyone

:20:37.:20:41.

to retune. If you've got satellite or cable, then just sit back and

:20:41.:20:45.

relax. But if you haven't got a digibox or a digital ready TV then

:20:45.:20:49.

as they say, "now's the time". One man, who's left it to the last

:20:49.:20:52.

minute in Spalding is William Bates. A late convert to digital, he's

:20:52.:20:55.

discovered some of the new channels, and should get more when he retunes

:20:55.:21:04.

tomorrow afternoon. We are pleased with what we get. We get extras,

:21:04.:21:10.

BBC Three, BBC Four, CBBC, BBC Parliament. But if you're still

:21:10.:21:13.

unsure what to do, then tomorrow and Thursday there's help available

:21:13.:21:16.

at roadshows in most of our major town's and cities. Hopefully though

:21:16.:21:19.

it should be as simple as grabbing your digital remote and just

:21:19.:21:28.

remembering to retune. And just to tell you the number for

:21:28.:21:38.
:21:38.:21:47.

Those are the details you need if you're not sure. Technically,

:21:47.:21:51.

tonight is the last ever broadcast after all those years on analogue

:21:51.:21:59.

Just to rub it in! At least I have not got a soft toy on top of my TV.

:21:59.:22:03.

Now when it comes to beer it's safe to say men are traditionally more

:22:03.:22:08.

likely to drink it than women. But a new beer has been launched in a

:22:08.:22:10.

Lincolnshire town which is targeting both the male and female

:22:11.:22:13.

market. Grantham is also now home to two breweries owned and managed

:22:14.:22:19.

by women. Phil Connell reports. It is a world long dominated by men.

:22:19.:22:22.

But at Brewster's Brewery in Grantham, Sara Barton is changing

:22:22.:22:29.

some old preconceptions. Have a little sniff. They are really

:22:29.:22:35.

fruity. The name for a female brewer is a brewster and here in

:22:35.:22:44.

Grantham, beer is being made by On the other side of town, Kathy

:22:44.:22:48.

Britton runs the Oldershaw Brewery. So what is it about Grantham, beer

:22:48.:22:54.

and women? If you go back to medieval times, it is something

:22:54.:22:58.

women did as part of the daily chores. They made the bread and the

:22:58.:23:02.

beer as a side product, which was the safest thing to drink in those

:23:02.:23:11.

days. The female palate is different. It is less sensitive to

:23:11.:23:16.

the astringent flavours. We may prefer those beers but that's not

:23:16.:23:22.

true for everyone. A group called Project Venus was started in

:23:22.:23:25.

Grantham this year to promote beer amongst women. This week they have

:23:25.:23:28.

launched a brand new beer, one it is hoped will appeal to women as

:23:28.:23:32.

much as to men. They have to come up with new thinking and new ideas.

:23:32.:23:35.

As a consequence of that, there have been some fantastic new beers

:23:35.:23:42.

by women which male brewers might not have come up with. Ironically,

:23:42.:23:50.

tonight, the beer launch is being held here in a wine bar. 8 the

:23:50.:23:53.

venue where beer is not normally popular. Can female drinkers here

:23:53.:23:56.

be persuaded? Hops or grapes? Different drinks for different

:23:56.:24:00.

palates. I think it is fantastic. Everyone seems to associate beer-

:24:00.:24:05.

drinking with men. I think ladies have been drinking it for a long

:24:05.:24:13.

time. Men keep suppressing us! So is a quiet revolution taking place

:24:13.:24:16.

in Grantham, a town fast being remembered not just for its beer

:24:17.:24:26.

A teenager is gearing up for a charity drive from Cambridgeshire
