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

:00:05.:00:08.

Town versus country. Claims that rural areas pay more tax but lose

:00:08.:00:15.

out to urban centres on vital services.

:00:15.:00:20.

An investigation is underway after a toddler drowns at a caravan park.

:00:20.:00:25.

Bed was bad for us that were standing by, so I cannot imagine

:00:25.:00:30.

what that family is going through. It is just so upsetting.

:00:30.:00:33.

The speed camera repair bill that runs into hundreds of thousands of

:00:33.:00:37.

pounds. Why this seaside town is one of the

:00:37.:00:43.

top tourist destinations in the country.

:00:43.:00:47.

And that taste of autumn in the next couple of days, the forecast

:00:47.:00:53.

coming up shortly. People living in rural areas in

:00:53.:00:56.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are getting a raw deal when it comes to

:00:56.:01:00.

Government spending. That's the finding of a new report claiming

:01:00.:01:03.

people in the countryside pay on average �100 more in council tax,

:01:03.:01:10.

but get 50% less money. The Rural Services Network is now calling on

:01:10.:01:14.

ministers to address the issue. Our communities correspondent Vicky

:01:14.:01:22.

Johnson has the story. But it might be green and it might

:01:22.:01:27.

be pleasant, but many people living in a rural areas feel they are

:01:27.:01:31.

paying way over the odds for the privilege. This woman has lived in

:01:31.:01:36.

East Yorkshire for the past 15 years. I think we already been off.

:01:36.:01:42.

We are certainly being more than a lot of people who live in and are

:01:42.:01:46.

then environment. He this is not just a perception. A new study

:01:46.:01:50.

reveals that if you live in the East Riding of Yorkshire or line

:01:50.:01:55.

future, the average amount of government money spent per head is

:01:55.:02:03.

around �300. But in Hull, that amount is doubled to �600. That is

:02:03.:02:07.

despite people in rural areas paying more in council tax than

:02:07.:02:11.

their Aardman counterparts. This woman works for a charity that

:02:11.:02:16.

supports rural communities. There is a perception that people that

:02:17.:02:21.

live in rural areas are more affluent. That is a method. The

:02:21.:02:25.

need support and the monies into them to keep them sustainable and

:02:26.:02:34.

viable. If regular bus services, two pubs and shops mean that people

:02:34.:02:40.

here still enjoy a country life. They worked together, rather than

:02:40.:02:50.
:02:50.:02:51.

simply relying on their council. in a council house, it they would

:02:51.:02:55.

look and see why the Electric had gone off rather than wait for the

:02:55.:03:02.

council. Those living in the more remote villages with fewer

:03:02.:03:06.

amenities certainly feel more hard done by.

:03:06.:03:09.

Graham Stuart is the MP for a rural area Beverley and Holderness, and

:03:09.:03:13.

also chairs the Parliamentary Group on Rural Services. I put it to him

:03:13.:03:17.

that big cities and urban areas were bound to need more money than

:03:17.:03:25.

a country area. The truth this the cost of delivery in the rural areas

:03:25.:03:31.

is higher. There are more primary fires per head in a rural areas and

:03:31.:03:36.

there are in our been at is. They tend to be more serious. A road

:03:36.:03:41.

traffic accidents are another big business, if you like, for the Fire

:03:41.:03:46.

Service. But are they coming off that badly? Many people that live

:03:46.:03:51.

in a rural areas are affluent. Why should they not pay more?

:03:51.:03:56.

average income in a rural areas is are actually at war than that on

:03:56.:04:01.

the urban areas. They are paying higher council tax and then they

:04:01.:04:09.

receive substantially less just to support services. I planned to

:04:09.:04:13.

pressure this government until the move to make a fairer system.

:04:13.:04:17.

are no longer in opposition, you are in government now, so you can

:04:17.:04:21.

change it. And the Government has inherited this terrible financial

:04:22.:04:26.

mess. It is much more difficult to change the system when you have so

:04:26.:04:30.

little money. But we have to make the case and get changed because it

:04:30.:04:35.

is not fair that we should have this continuation, whether it is

:04:35.:04:39.

health care or the skills, that are all more expensive to run than the

:04:39.:04:46.

RN it relate -- are been areas and yet his soul much less money. I

:04:46.:04:52.

applied to pressure I've is this government. -- I plan to pressurise

:04:52.:05:02.

this Government. If you do it, then they are been at is will miss out

:05:02.:05:07.

on money and then a Labour MP will be on the complaining. Is there a

:05:07.:05:13.

fairer way? It should be based on need and be transparent. We have

:05:13.:05:17.

had Labour using the formula to push money into a been at is at the

:05:17.:05:21.

expense of a rural areas. I do not want a repeat of that the other way

:05:21.:05:25.

round. I want a transparent system that gives the full support to

:05:25.:05:35.
:05:35.:05:37.

everybody, wherever they live. Thank you very much indeed. The

:05:37.:05:43.

later we know what do you think about this one. -- let me know what

:05:43.:05:53.
:05:53.:06:05.

do you think of this one. Contact In a moment:

:06:05.:06:08.

Just half the visitors of last year, but organisers say Hull's Freedom

:06:08.:06:17.

Festival is set to continue. An investigation is underway after

:06:17.:06:21.

a 19-month-old toddler drowned at a Lincolnshire caravan park. He

:06:21.:06:28.

disappeared while his parents were putting up a tent. The tragedy

:06:28.:06:30.

happened at the Skegness Water Leisure Park in Ingoldmells. Park

:06:30.:06:36.

staff there had tried in vain to revive him.

:06:36.:06:42.

Throughout the day, flowers have been left at the campsite, close to

:06:42.:06:46.

the lake where the little boy's body was found. His family had just

:06:46.:06:51.

arrived and were pitching their tent when he disappeared. I feel

:06:51.:06:56.

for the family. It was bad for us that were standing by, so why do

:06:56.:07:04.

not know how they must have felt. She was very upset. She had just

:07:04.:07:10.

bought a teddy bear and an outfit and he had gone. In a statement

:07:10.:07:20.
:07:20.:07:25.

The owner of the port is now working closely with that the

:07:25.:07:30.

district council, who have had inspectors here over the weekend.

:07:30.:07:33.

They say they are completely happy with their health and safety

:07:33.:07:37.

precautions in place here. Because of that, it is believed no further

:07:37.:07:42.

action will be taken. I have two children under the age of 10 myself

:07:42.:07:46.

and I go camping with them. He know that when you are putting something

:07:46.:07:50.

up, it is difficult to keep your attention on the children. That is

:07:50.:07:56.

why all my sympathies go to the this family, because I am in the

:07:56.:08:00.

same position. The events have been described as a tragic accident, a

:08:00.:08:06.

simple family all the that have ended -- that has ended in

:08:06.:08:12.

unimaginable circumstances. Some of the day's other news now.

:08:12.:08:15.

Police have named the pilot who died when his plane crashed near

:08:15.:08:17.

Stamford. Clive Greenaway was 52 and from Stratford-Upon-Avon. He

:08:18.:08:21.

died when his light aircraft hit a power line over the A1 on Friday.

:08:21.:08:25.

The road was closed for 24 hours as the cable was in danger of falling

:08:25.:08:27.

onto the carriageway. People living on the Humberston

:08:27.:08:30.

Fitties near Cleethorpes have been told they might be able to stay

:08:30.:08:33.

there for 12 months a year. The caravan park currently only allows

:08:34.:08:36.

people to stay for ten months. Now councillors say they will consider

:08:37.:08:44.

the request from residents, and hold a vote on the issue.

:08:44.:08:47.

Around 1,000 jobs have been protected after plans for a multi

:08:47.:08:51.

million pound gas turbine plant have been approved in Lincolnshire.

:08:51.:08:54.

Siemens will open its site at Teal Park in North Hykeham, near Lincoln

:08:54.:08:57.

next year. More than �300,000 has been spent

:08:57.:09:01.

this year alone in Lincolnshire on fixing vandalised speed cameras.

:09:01.:09:04.

The Road Safety Partnership has released the figures after the

:09:04.:09:08.

latest incident, which took place over the weekend. Since the start

:09:08.:09:11.

of the year, 16 sites have been targeted in the county, including

:09:11.:09:19.

in Lincoln, Grantham, Louth and Spalding. Our reporter Vanessa

:09:19.:09:23.

Clarke is at a site near Spalding. Vanessa, tell us what happened

:09:23.:09:32.

there. The latest camera to be attacked.

:09:32.:09:37.

In the early hours of yesterday morning, someone came along and set

:09:37.:09:42.

fire to this whole hedge and the camera. Thousands of pounds of

:09:42.:09:46.

damage has been done. This road here is a particularly dangerous

:09:46.:09:51.

one. I was speaking to a garage owner up of the road and he said

:09:51.:09:54.

that before the speed camera was here, a number of accidents were

:09:54.:09:58.

taking place. It is said that the damage done here could cost

:09:58.:10:03.

people's lives. The people that are attacking these cameras are not

:10:03.:10:08.

looking at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is that the cameras

:10:08.:10:16.

are there to speed -- save lives. The artist's old people down at

:10:16.:10:20.

significant danger areas. For them to burn these cameras, they are

:10:20.:10:25.

diverting money that we can better spent in other places.

:10:25.:10:31.

seriously are these incidents being treated?

:10:31.:10:37.

This is the 17th camera to be attacked. People are quite worried

:10:38.:10:47.
:10:48.:10:48.

about. A new camera was put in place recently near by because two

:10:48.:10:56.

weeks ago, at �10,000 worth of damage was done. The Road Safety

:10:56.:10:59.

Partnership said they are on the case and will try to bring people

:10:59.:11:05.

to justice. At �10,000 reward is being made available to anyone that

:11:05.:11:11.

can help with the investigation. And I'm sure this is another you

:11:11.:11:17.

will have a view on. Should these camera sites be fixed, costing the

:11:17.:11:20.

taxpayer thousands of pounds? There's the email and text details

:11:20.:11:25.

for you on screen now. And if you want to hear more on the

:11:25.:11:27.

story, you can do on BBC Lincolnshire's breakfast show

:11:28.:11:32.

tomorrow morning from 6am. In the last five years, the amount

:11:32.:11:38.

of waste being recycled in Hull has more than doubled. Pushing the city

:11:38.:11:41.

towards the top of the green league tables. The council claims new

:11:41.:11:44.

recycling and better waste schemes are behind the rise, which has also

:11:44.:11:47.

cut the amount of rubbish being sent to landfill. Phillip Norton

:11:47.:11:53.

reports. Household items being recycled in

:11:53.:11:58.

Hull. A few years ago, most of this was going to landfill. Now, it is

:11:58.:12:02.

helping the city to become one of the best in the country for cutting

:12:02.:12:08.

down on waste. We were in the bottom quarter in terms of er

:12:08.:12:14.

recycling performance. Now we are potentially the best in the country.

:12:14.:12:21.

We're certainly in the top ten to 20% told all local authorities.

:12:21.:12:27.

They have a 51.4% to recite Tingley rate. The amount being recycled has

:12:27.:12:33.

doubled to almost 66,000 tonnes. Over the same period, thus the

:12:33.:12:41.

amount being sent to landfill has been cut by almost one third.

:12:41.:12:46.

credit to them. I am a great believer in recycling, I think it

:12:46.:12:53.

is very important. I am all for it. A you cannot keep the putting it in

:12:53.:12:58.

a landfill, because it will run out. This has got to be better. It is

:12:58.:13:01.

not just homeowners who are helping. Don Wilson has set up a business

:13:01.:13:03.

that collects and refurbishes broken and unwanted office

:13:03.:13:09.

furniture that would otherwise be sent to landfill. Beagle and click

:13:09.:13:16.

the furniture, bring it back here, strip it down, refurbish it, clean

:13:16.:13:22.

it checked for safety. -- will be cool. We then offer it to the

:13:22.:13:28.

client or it to charity. We really wanted to go to start up businesses.

:13:28.:13:31.

The council is among those backing recycling and reuse projects. And

:13:31.:13:33.

with Government targets for 2020 already met, they will further

:13:33.:13:43.
:13:43.:13:48.

Thank you for watching. Still ahead, Hull Kingston Rovers arrest get

:13:48.:13:53.

closer to joining Hull FC in the closer to joining Hull FC in the

:13:53.:13:56.

play-offs after a favour from their city rivals. The seaside town

:13:56.:14:06.
:14:06.:14:07.

ranked as one per of that took top countries to US destinations. --

:14:07.:14:12.

top tourist destinations in the country. The two so clean along

:14:12.:14:22.
:14:22.:14:32.

Tonight's picture. Thank you very much for that, John. Good evening,

:14:32.:14:38.

young man. How are you? I am very well, thank you. Happy birthday,

:14:38.:14:46.

Peter. Someone has just treated, happy birthday, Peter. 1 year

:14:46.:14:56.
:14:56.:15:05.

It is an autumnal headline. This is a tumble looking chart. -- chart

:15:06.:15:12.

that looks very autumnal. There have been some sharp showers around

:15:12.:15:20.

this afternoon. Some sunshine you can see from the West. There should

:15:20.:15:23.

be some fine weather in the next couple of hours but it will not be

:15:23.:15:31.

long before we see some patchy rain developing. The lowest temperatures

:15:31.:15:41.
:15:41.:15:44.

will be around 12 Celsius. The sun will rise in the morning at 6:19am.

:15:44.:15:49.

Watch out for the commute in the morning. There will be a lot of

:15:49.:15:56.

spray on the surface. This weather front is moving quickly so I reckon

:15:56.:16:04.

that by late morning, it will have moved on. A lot of fine weather

:16:04.:16:10.

with some sunshine. Still a risk of one or two showers. The rain will

:16:10.:16:20.
:16:20.:16:24.

be the main feature tomorrow. Temperatures will not be too bad.

:16:24.:16:31.

It remains unsettled, a scattering of showers on Wednesday and

:16:32.:16:41.
:16:42.:16:45.

Why is it that all turned up as a festival of culture looking like a

:16:45.:16:52.

lumberjack had been to a car-boot Sale? Wonderful! That was one of my

:16:52.:17:02.
:17:02.:17:07.

75,000 people normally visit the Freedom Festival. That was just

:17:07.:17:11.

half the people that came last year. Organisers claim it is still

:17:11.:17:17.

taxpayers' money well spent. Without the big-name pop acts of

:17:17.:17:21.

previous years, the focus was on the part. It seems to have gone

:17:21.:17:26.

down well. There are less people on the streets but there is still a

:17:26.:17:30.

good buzz. Just because you have not heard of the talent does not

:17:30.:17:39.

mean to say it is not good. streets are buzzing, it is cool.

:17:39.:17:47.

prefer it this way. Businesses have always -- have also benefited. This

:17:47.:17:53.

cafe, which normally only opens at the weekend. The have had way too

:17:53.:18:01.

many people in to cope. A weekend like this is important to generate

:18:01.:18:09.

business. It get surname out there. Replenishing stock begins. It is a

:18:09.:18:19.
:18:19.:18:22.

constant flow of the family's. In terms of success, it was as begged.

:18:22.:18:28.

For others, it has not been the success they hoped for. This

:18:28.:18:34.

delicatessen ran out of food last year, this year, it was not as busy.

:18:34.:18:40.

After 4 o'clock, it was not very busy. I did not have to stay behind.

:18:40.:18:45.

I am not very happy about this year. Tourism bosses say that this year

:18:45.:18:52.

has been a learning curve. For us, it is like the first year almost.

:18:52.:18:56.

It is very important that you get the balance. It is good to have

:18:56.:19:01.

poor packed. But the balance is more important. We want it to grow

:19:01.:19:07.

and feel like a festival. Organisers have plenty to build on

:19:07.:19:12.

as funding has been secured for the next three years.

:19:12.:19:16.

A response on a story about fears that more than half a million

:19:16.:19:18.

households in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire could struggle to pay

:19:18.:19:23.

their bills this winter. Some people are taking action to keep

:19:23.:19:30.

their homes but rising prices mean that many are facing fuel poverty.

:19:30.:19:40.
:19:40.:19:40.

A big response. First of all. This women says, as we have lost

:19:40.:19:50.
:19:50.:20:04.

installation and cavity wall An emotive subject. We were talking

:20:04.:20:11.

about it on the radio yesterday. Sport, now. A great weekend for

:20:11.:20:19.

both of our rugby league teams. roads lead to Hull this weekend.

:20:20.:20:25.

Can Hull Kingston Rovers make the top rate? More than 1000 fans went

:20:25.:20:30.

to the south of France to see Hull FC pull off their best win of the

:20:30.:20:37.

season against Catalan Dragons. It set up a final-day play-off decider.

:20:37.:20:46.

They travel far and wide to see their team. It is nice, the weather

:20:46.:20:51.

is great and the atmosphere is great. It is great to experience a

:20:51.:20:56.

different culture, at different way of watching rugby. You're having a

:20:56.:21:00.

holiday and watching your team play rugby. That is why we're here.

:21:00.:21:05.

must have been worth every penny. Rover has got off to a storming

:21:05.:21:11.

start. After adding to their score, along came the expected fight back

:21:11.:21:18.

from the Catalan Dragons. But not for long. The Robins went ahead.

:21:18.:21:22.

More Catalan pressure brought them back and told us try sealed a

:21:22.:21:32.
:21:32.:21:36.

dramatic one. -- this drat -- this tried sealed a dramatic winner.

:21:36.:21:40.

Over in Castleford, wave after wave of Hull FC pressure saw them score

:21:40.:21:49.

50 points to secured their place in the play-offs. Back in France, time

:21:49.:21:55.

for reflection. Especially from these fans facing a 17 hour rail

:21:55.:22:00.

journey from France to Hull. Very good, nice people and we have had a

:22:00.:22:06.

great time. To watch Hull Kingston Rovers as well, it tops the whole

:22:06.:22:11.

weekend off. During that game, they're your mortal enemies and

:22:11.:22:14.

after the game, there shaking your hands.

:22:14.:22:18.

Once again, a British set of fans have embraced the Catalan

:22:18.:22:24.

experiences. They have had a great welcome from local people and

:22:24.:22:29.

businesses. That is just as well, because in two weeks' time, one of

:22:29.:22:33.

the sides from Hull could be back here for a play-off game.

:22:33.:22:38.

What are the chances of one of the club's going back to France? Quite

:22:38.:22:40.

club's going back to France? Quite high, actually. Let us have a look

:22:40.:22:49.

at the league table. That yellow line is like the VIP area of a

:22:49.:22:57.

nightclub! Clint Newton and Ben Fisher leaving Hull Kingston Rovers

:22:58.:23:03.

at the end of the year. Football, and Scunthorpe United could have to

:23:03.:23:10.

pay out �195,000 to one of their new midfielders. Jenny Wright

:23:10.:23:15.

enjoyed in the summer from Accrington Stanley. A tribunal

:23:15.:23:21.

today has ruled how much you will cost his new club. -- he will cost

:23:21.:23:29.

his new club. Scunthorpe United are still without a league win this

:23:29.:23:37.

evening -- this season. Lincoln City son to a 4th defeat in as many

:23:37.:23:47.
:23:47.:23:50.

games. Grimsby Town picked up a The ad was a fast thick with -- it

:23:50.:23:57.

was a fantastic weekend for the horse establishment. Over 100,000

:23:57.:24:04.

people attended these horse trials. More records were broken when this

:24:04.:24:14.
:24:14.:24:15.

man took the title for a 6th time. Zara Phillips finished 10th. It is

:24:15.:24:21.

very exciting. I can pretend that I am relaxed, but deep down, it meant

:24:21.:24:31.

a lot so that was huge. Yorkshire's cricketers face a must-win game. On

:24:31.:24:36.

Saturday, their rivals Warwickshire were able to bat out a draw.

:24:36.:24:43.

Anything but a victory against Somerset will mean relegation.

:24:43.:24:52.

According to the latest figures from visit England -- from Visit
