And Hello and welcome to the programme. The headlines: still not

:00:07.:00:11.

good enough, inspectors say Boston's, widow must do more to

:00:11.:00:15.

insure patient safety. The Lincolnshire school celebrating

:00:15.:00:20.

Britain's biggest improvement in GCSE results. I have got what I

:00:20.:00:28.

wanted, I am happy. My parents are will be pleased. I am really happy.

:00:28.:00:31.

Scunthorpe United prepare for the arrival of Premier League's

:00:31.:00:40.

Newcastle. And creating comedy on the carpet,

:00:40.:00:43.

the company producing a multi- million-pound hard work to order

:00:43.:00:49.

the stars of stage and screen. And join me in a few minutes' time

:00:49.:00:59.
:00:59.:01:00.

for the forecast for the bank holiday weekend.

:01:00.:01:04.

Standards of patient care at the pilgrim's Hospital in Boston are

:01:04.:01:09.

still not good enough, according to another report. Inspectors from the

:01:09.:01:12.

independent watchdog the care quality commission say that while

:01:12.:01:18.

some improvements have been made, more work still needs to be done to

:01:18.:01:22.

ensure patient safety. This follows a movie in July which saw a student

:01:22.:01:26.

nurses pulled out of the hospital after concerns over training

:01:26.:01:32.

quality. Our correspondent was invited inside the hospital to see

:01:32.:01:37.

the progress. Risk assessments where once

:01:37.:01:41.

highlighted as a problem area by inspectors from the care quality

:01:41.:01:45.

commission. Not any more. Every patient is now fully assessed for

:01:45.:01:54.

any risks, such as pressure sores, blood clots and boils.

:01:54.:01:57.

Ith -- the patients we spoke to say they have noticed a difference in

:01:57.:02:04.

the standards of care. The staff are better than the where years ago.

:02:04.:02:12.

They have been very good. Positive comments like these could not come

:02:12.:02:16.

at a better time. One last month, student nurses were withdrawn

:02:16.:02:20.

following concerns over the learning environment. They will now

:02:20.:02:23.

return next year. The hospital's problems were first revealed in

:02:23.:02:27.

February, when the commission carried out their first inspection.

:02:27.:02:32.

The following month, the CQC's damaging report was published an

:02:32.:02:36.

enforcement action announced. In June, Lincolnshire police announced

:02:36.:02:40.

they were investigating allegations of mistreatment of patients by a

:02:40.:02:44.

member of staff. Against this troubled backdrop,

:02:45.:02:48.

staff have been working hard to drive up standards with a regular

:02:48.:02:55.

training sessions. Morale take a bet, a very large debt. All nursing

:02:55.:03:00.

staff are aware that they are here for the benefit of the patients. We

:03:00.:03:05.

are using this as an opportunity to learn. We are improving our patient

:03:05.:03:10.

care. The latest findings from the CQC, an independent health watchdog,

:03:10.:03:14.

show that Weller brokers are being made, inspectors have still had

:03:15.:03:19.

waited three main areas of concern. The major one is over the

:03:19.:03:23.

management and save administration of drugs. Concerns were also raised

:03:23.:03:27.

over individual care plans not being detailed enough. Inspectors

:03:28.:03:32.

fear that some patients could be at risk of dehydration because the

:03:32.:03:36.

records are not always properly maintained. Senior hospital

:03:36.:03:41.

managers say they are working closely with the CTC to ensure the

:03:41.:03:44.

improvements continue. We are living in the right direction, we

:03:44.:03:49.

need to build on the work we have already done. I am satisfied that

:03:49.:03:54.

if we do that, we will ensure that patients receive the care that they

:03:54.:04:01.

would expect. The trust that now have 28 days to get back to the CQC,

:04:01.:04:09.

with a detailed action plan for further improvements.

:04:09.:04:13.

That is a story that we have a fault and will continue to fall.

:04:14.:04:17.

Any moment, the small towns fighting to maintain their

:04:17.:04:24.

community spirit in the face of a sprawling developments.

:04:24.:04:29.

The Red Arrows are expected back at their Lincolnshire base tomorrow,

:04:29.:04:33.

after a flying ban on the Hawk jet was lifted. They were grounded

:04:33.:04:38.

after the death of red for, Flight Lieutenant John 18 at an event on

:04:38.:04:47.

this Saturday. -- John their game. No announcement has been made as to

:04:47.:04:53.

whether they will perform at any event. The Lincolnshire

:04:53.:04:58.

motorcyclist has been killed in the Isle of man. Organisers say that

:04:58.:05:02.

49-year-old a neo- gent from Boston died after an incident at the Manx

:05:02.:05:11.

Grand Prix. -- Neil Grant. A Business in Grimsby employ more

:05:11.:05:15.

than 60 people has gone into receivership. All the staff have

:05:15.:05:19.

been made redundant at Superior seafoods. The family-run firm had

:05:19.:05:24.

been trading for 40 years. 90 people have been made redundant

:05:24.:05:29.

at an East Yorkshire caravan company. Serve can arise is the

:05:29.:05:34.

largest UK caravan and the motor home manufacturer. The company say

:05:34.:05:36.

they are seeking voluntary redundancies.

:05:36.:05:41.

It has been another records here for exam passes as teenagers in

:05:41.:05:45.

Lancashire and Yorkshire pick of their GCSE results. Lincolnshire

:05:45.:05:48.

County Council saw the biggest increase, the pass rate was up 4%

:05:48.:05:53.

on last year. In Hull, they recorded their best ever pass rate

:05:54.:05:59.

with 45% of pupils making the grade. With the exams are over, it is

:05:59.:06:04.

decision time for many youngsters. We will be looking at the options

:06:04.:06:09.

for school leavers. Our correspondent has the story of

:06:09.:06:13.

today's celebrations. Students had plenty to smile about

:06:13.:06:17.

this morning, as record results were recorded across East Yorkshire

:06:17.:06:22.

and Lincolnshire. I am speechless. Absolute bliss weasels. I got what

:06:22.:06:32.

I wanted. My parents will be pleased. Three years ago, this

:06:32.:06:36.

council in Boston recorded the second worst in the country. Today,

:06:36.:06:40.

students opened their wanderlust -- envelopes for the final time. The

:06:40.:06:44.

school is to close and become part of Haven High. But not before

:06:44.:06:51.

achieving record grades. We have increased the hour presented a

:06:51.:06:58.

people achieving a A* by 16%. was also good news in Cleethorpes,

:06:58.:07:02.

were academies were continuing to succeed. This is the 4th here where

:07:02.:07:06.

we have continued to have 80% of students achieving higher grades in

:07:06.:07:12.

English and maths. I got an A and A* in everything. I got a C in

:07:12.:07:18.

everything. I passed everything, I am quite pleased. In Hull,

:07:18.:07:21.

teenagers got a chance to relax and enjoy themselves, the council put

:07:21.:07:25.

on a special event after attaining the best grades the city has ever

:07:25.:07:30.

seen. They do such a tough market out there for jobs, more and more,

:07:30.:07:36.

the Dong people know that their future lies in getting good grades.

:07:36.:07:41.

-- e young people know. Once the party is over, students will have

:07:41.:07:48.

to decide what to do with their future. Of for some, 16 means

:07:48.:07:53.

leaving school. And then tried to avoid the fate of one million

:07:53.:07:57.

school leavers nationwide, who are not in education or employment. The

:07:57.:08:01.

authorities are keen to stress that help is out there. There is a wide

:08:01.:08:05.

range of training options, employment with training and causes

:08:05.:08:08.

and apprenticeships. Please do not be downhearted a few have got poor

:08:08.:08:14.

results that you were not expecting. Matt is one of the lucky ones,

:08:14.:08:18.

after his GCSE's last year he could be there for and won an

:08:18.:08:22.

apprenticeship. He gets employment and education. The Hull-based

:08:22.:08:28.

company is funding his part-time degree. I do a they release one day

:08:28.:08:33.

per week, which Crown pay for, to study at university. I will be on

:08:33.:08:38.

the pathway to a full bachelor's degree. It will take six years

:08:38.:08:42.

rather than five years, but in that time he will learn a trade which

:08:42.:08:49.

will see him for the rest of his life. Even with Labour's idea today

:08:49.:08:52.

that all my firms with apprenticeship schemes should be

:08:52.:08:57.

awarded public sector work, they deserve reality is that while

:08:57.:09:04.

school is out, the hard work is only just beginning.

:09:04.:09:09.

Joining me now is Joseph Hyatt from the Youth Parliament. He is also

:09:09.:09:13.

behind a campaign tried to get employers to take youngsters

:09:13.:09:17.

through work experience. Do you think that employments -- employers

:09:17.:09:24.

are taking on enough young people? Not at all. The issue is that,

:09:24.:09:28.

obviously with the government's work programme and our past -- from

:09:28.:09:33.

our past government being scrapped, it has been hard for employers to

:09:33.:09:36.

expand on apprenticeships and for young people to get into a pension.

:09:37.:09:40.

Also, the way it is going with the connection service, it is hard for

:09:41.:09:45.

young people to get into work experience. There has been a

:09:45.:09:47.

breakdown in communication between the private sector employers, and

:09:47.:09:53.

students. Given the cost in the number of graduates that end up in

:09:54.:09:58.

a non-graduate jobs, would you like to see, do you think it is vital

:09:58.:10:04.

that not have to go to university? University comes down to a personal

:10:04.:10:07.

choice. What we have seen is that one in three graduates are

:10:08.:10:12.

unemployed, one in five young people are unemployed. It is clear

:10:12.:10:16.

that university does not necessarily make a difference. We

:10:16.:10:20.

need to one in the that every young person is killed and talented.

:10:20.:10:23.

makes a difference whether employers will only one graduates.

:10:23.:10:27.

We must reshape the way employers look at young people. We need to

:10:27.:10:31.

realise that universities are for everyone, they are very skilled at

:10:31.:10:34.

talented young people who are coming out with diplomas at all

:10:34.:10:39.

sorts of court cases. Should they look more favourably at GCSEs and

:10:39.:10:44.

A-levels, rather than stipulating that you must go of the arrested?

:10:44.:10:49.

totally agree, to be totally fact, as ironic as this sounds, I think

:10:49.:10:53.

all the cases are somewhat irrelevant in this issue at the

:10:53.:10:56.

minute. The issue is the perception of young people from employers.

:10:56.:11:01.

They think that young people just sit around and have no interest in

:11:01.:11:07.

wanting to improve their lives. That is the issue. They seem to

:11:07.:11:11.

favour older people, or when a lot of young people are coming out of

story showing that accidents have actually risen at a number of speed

:11:49.:11:53.

cameras sating the Humberside area. The Road Safety Partnership has

:11:53.:11:57.

said that speeding is being cut, but admits that it needs to look at

:11:57.:12:03.

ways of cutting casualties. A big response after the programme

:12:03.:12:06.

last night, just a few of the message. Brian in Swineshead said

:12:06.:12:10.

that he cannot believe the Government spokesperson said that

:12:10.:12:20.
:12:20.:12:37.

Still ahead before 7pm, Scunthorpe United prepared to renew

:12:37.:12:43.

hostilities with Newcastle. Two divisions they divide the teams.

:12:43.:12:46.

More Premier League side have fallen and Scunthorpe United try

:12:46.:12:51.

and make it a theft. The town are playing against Newcastle United,

:12:51.:12:59.

:13:22.:13:32.
:13:32.:13:34.

I'm not talking to a tonight after Zoe from Grimsby e-mail down to say

:13:34.:13:38.

that you only have heard what I said last night. That's not what

:13:38.:13:45.

was said! Don't look in the paper for his lonely hearts ad - just e-

mail him directly. The weather forecast for the Bank Holiday Inn

:13:50.:13:57.

just the second. Tomorrow, not a great day. This is the coast where

:13:57.:14:06.

it will be miserable. Am busy pressure charts. This will bring us

:14:06.:14:11.

quite persistent rain tomorrow. It is brightened up nicely today and

:14:11.:14:16.

we have seen at sunshine develop. In the short term, one or two

:14:16.:14:23.

showers around. This evening, in general, fine and dry. You can see

:14:23.:14:28.

this rain that edging in from the south-east. In the rural spot, down

:14:29.:14:38.

to eight Celsius, but towns and cities will hold up. Very high

:14:38.:14:45.

waters tomorrow. It will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain spreading

:14:45.:14:50.

out from the south-west. A fairly miserable commute to work. Those

:14:50.:14:55.

outbreaks of rain will continue and veg West words. There will be heavy

:14:55.:15:01.

spells in there and really miserable along the coastline. We

:15:01.:15:08.

should be up at around 21 Celsius tomorrow. It will only reach around

:15:08.:15:18.
:15:18.:15:23.

18 Celsius below. -- though. Summer showers over the weekend but sunny

:15:23.:15:27.

spells. Sunny spells and scattered showers on Monday. Sunday will be

:15:27.:15:36.

the driest day. I can't believe you are offering odds of a woman going

:15:36.:15:41.

are offering odds of a woman going out with Peter. How we laughed!

:15:41.:15:44.

There's concern that urban sprawl has robbed a Lincolnshire town of

:15:44.:15:48.

its sense of community. According to a report by North Kesteven

:15:48.:15:51.

District Council, Hykeham near Lincoln is suffering from a lack of

:15:51.:15:54.

services, congested roads and little sense of pride amongst its

:15:54.:16:04.
:16:04.:16:04.

residents. The study says the area needs new investment to service its

:16:04.:16:11.

new estates. Phillip Norton reports. Another busy day are amongst fears

:16:11.:16:16.

the town is losing its identity and becoming simply part of Lincoln.

:16:16.:16:19.

think the main fear of people is that we will get sucked up by the

:16:19.:16:26.

City, and we do not want that. We want our independence, if you like.

:16:26.:16:29.

It has been a long time since this street was the centre of village

:16:29.:16:35.

life year. Well there are still a few old buildings remaining,

:16:35.:16:41.

elsewhere, it is quite different. This is the modern face - housing

:16:41.:16:44.

estates and building work in progress. The concern is that the

:16:44.:16:47.

infrastructure that is already in place cannot cope with the

:16:47.:16:53.

increasing population. People, quite rightly, spotted an

:16:53.:16:58.

opportunity and bill the estate. No thought was given to the inch this

:16:58.:17:05.

-- infrastructure. We really need roads and more medical supplies and

:17:05.:17:09.

care for the elderly. All these things should be first and foremost.

:17:09.:17:19.
:17:19.:17:23.

Sadly, they're not. There are similar examples in other areas.

:17:23.:17:27.

Brough, located on the banks of the Humber, has also seen a rapid

:17:27.:17:32.

population increase and now regarded as a small town. We have

:17:32.:17:35.

been campaigning for many years to preserve villages and the green

:17:35.:17:39.

belt around these villages. But not everyone in Hykeham feels the urban

:17:39.:17:46.

sprawl and modern day life are a bad thing. Hicom still has an

:17:46.:17:49.

identity of its own and a think it will keep that. We have had all

:17:49.:17:52.

these developments but we're still there is a town is a have a lot to

:17:52.:17:58.

offer. The town council says its doing all it can to help ease

:17:58.:18:00.

problems with Hykeham's infrastructure - but like most

:18:00.:18:06.

things, improvements will cost money.

:18:06.:18:13.

Certainly an interesting one. Maxwell Hutchinson is an architect

:18:13.:18:15.

and journalist, who grew up in Lincolnshire. I spoke to him

:18:15.:18:19.

earlier and asked him if he'd seen this kind of thing happening where

:18:19.:18:26.

he lived. I have seen it to a slight extent when I was brought up.

:18:26.:18:31.

When I was brought up in the 1950s - I am that old, it was separated

:18:31.:18:37.

by three miles of countryside. Now, it is almost conjoined with the

:18:37.:18:42.

town of Branston. Community is not made by buildings. It is made by

:18:42.:18:47.

people, and we have to face up to the inevitability of the fact that

:18:47.:18:51.

this country is desperately short of housing. Are we getting the

:18:51.:18:57.

housing right? You have said we need the houses, but it is that

:18:57.:19:03.

houses that trample over the land. We're not getting the house is

:19:03.:19:07.

right, or more especially, the planning strategy behind the houses.

:19:07.:19:11.

We need to resign ourselves to the fact that the countryside will be

:19:11.:19:16.

developed. The demographic figures and that population of the country

:19:16.:19:21.

is going up. Somehow, somewhere, people have to live. There needs to

:19:21.:19:27.

be a very careful planning balance before these houses are built. Also,

:19:27.:19:31.

with the change in the way it we live our lives, we need to design

:19:31.:19:36.

different sorts of houses. Is that not dented people like yourself,

:19:36.:19:43.

the architect, to get that right? The Housing builders need to engage

:19:43.:19:48.

with creative, thought for one for odd-looking people to build --

:19:48.:19:55.

design their housing stock. The idea of small boxes rolled out on

:19:55.:20:01.

roads isn't good. A lot of people watching now 11 assorted boxes

:20:01.:20:05.

you're talking about. They did not have an option, but there can be an

:20:05.:20:10.

option in the future, if we design these things properly. I am not

:20:10.:20:13.

disparaging the places in which people live, but they live there

:20:13.:20:18.

because they were not given it any option for any alternative.

:20:18.:20:23.

answer in a nutshell? We have to resign ourselves to the fact that

:20:23.:20:27.

we are going to develop the countryside and we need to engage

:20:27.:20:31.

the best design brains we have to make sure ray get it right. Thank

:20:31.:20:41.
:20:41.:20:41.

you for coming on. Can we keep a sense of community?

:20:41.:20:46.

Do we have to except, as he said, that the countryside will have to

:20:46.:20:56.
:20:56.:21:03.

be built on? Since Scunthorpe United last beat Newcastle United,

:21:03.:21:06.

back in 2009, the two clubs fortunes couldn't have been more

:21:06.:21:09.

different. Newcastle are now back in the premier league - and the

:21:09.:21:12.

Iron relegated to league one. But tonight Scunthorpe fans are hoping

:21:12.:21:15.

history will repeat itself, as the pair meet in the second round of

:21:15.:21:19.

the Carling Cup. Simon Clark reports.

:21:19.:21:24.

They were still snapping up tickets this afternoon for what could be

:21:24.:21:28.

Scunthorpe's most prestigious game of the season. Two years ago, they

:21:28.:21:33.

met Newcastle and the lead, when they won 2-1. Since then, the two

:21:33.:21:37.

teams are in different divisions, so often as am for a repeat is

:21:37.:21:45.

muted. In cup games, anything can happen. We're not playing well

:21:45.:21:50.

enough at the moment. In just under one hour, the two teams will march

:21:50.:21:54.

down here for from these two dressing-rooms. They will be led

:21:54.:21:59.

out by a very special guest - Taylor Nelson, the son of Michael

:21:59.:22:05.

Nelson, the Scunthorpe United defender. Taylor Nelson arrived at

:22:05.:22:09.

the stadium a few minutes ago. Like his dad, he supports Newcastle

:22:09.:22:19.
:22:19.:22:26.

United. -- Kyle Nelson. He was doing it the coaching at and he was

:22:26.:22:30.

asked if he wanted to be than Ascot and was given the option of being

:22:30.:22:38.

an Ascot for this match. Whatever the outcome, Scunthorpe United

:22:38.:22:42.

earned a tasty nest-egg, estimated at �150,000.

:22:42.:22:45.

And Simon is at Glanford park for us this evening. So what changes

:22:45.:22:51.

have taken place at Scunthorpe since they last played Newcastle?

:22:51.:22:55.

There have been huge changes to personnel on the pitch, personnel

:22:55.:22:59.

behind the scenes like the managers, and they can tell you both star
