The 4th Good evening. Welcome to BBC Look North. There headlines:

:00:16.:00:20.

Rescued from the freezing North Sea. How a woman survived a fall

:00:20.:00:25.

overboard from a ferry. When we head there was a person in the

:00:25.:00:29.

water in the sea at night, I think she was in there for half an hour,

:00:29.:00:33.

chances of survival are normally quite minimal.

:00:33.:00:38.

A race against time to save a whale stuck in the mud on the Humber.

:00:38.:00:46.

loaded about Revolver, to be honest, because I thought rubes. One of our

:00:46.:00:53.

functions is to prevent suffering. -- I thought, whoops.

:00:53.:00:59.

�19,000 and more will be spent on moving this playground. And the

:00:59.:01:03.

smallest car in the world, made in Lincolnshire.

:01:03.:01:13.
:01:13.:01:15.

All the latest coming up on the Good evening. A woman who fell from

:01:15.:01:19.

a ferry off the Flamborough coast has been described as the luckiest

:01:19.:01:24.

woman alive. She managed to keep itself afloat for half-an-hour in

:01:24.:01:29.

freezing water before emergency teams arrived to save her. The

:01:30.:01:34.

incident was 20 miles off the Flamborough coast. The drama

:01:34.:01:37.

happened as the 23-year-old was travelling on a ferry from

:01:37.:01:43.

Newcastle to the Netherlands. Phil Connell has more.

:01:43.:01:47.

In dark, stormy conditions, the RAF search-and-rescue helicopter found

:01:47.:01:53.

the ferry 20 miles off Flamborough Head. On board, the woman was

:01:53.:01:59.

winched to safety after being rescued from the sea by a lifeboat

:01:59.:02:04.

crew 30 minutes earlier. It was thought she had fallen 30 ft into

:02:04.:02:09.

freezing water after going on deck to light a cigarette. When we heard

:02:09.:02:12.

the situation, a person in the water in the sea at night, I think

:02:12.:02:16.

she was in there for half an hour, chances of survival are quite

:02:16.:02:22.

minimal. Extremely lucky. Condition as last night were said to be

:02:22.:02:27.

similar to those seen along the East Coast today. How winds and

:02:28.:02:32.

stormy seas. In weather like this, the safe rescue of the woman has

:02:32.:02:36.

been described as nothing short of a miracle. Today, the quick actions

:02:36.:02:42.

of those on board the ferry have been praised for saving her life.

:02:42.:02:47.

There is a survivability time in any water, any open-water. The

:02:47.:02:51.

lower the temperature, the survivability time is Low Wood. It

:02:51.:03:00.

is -- it was crucial she was found quickly. A Humberside Offshore

:03:00.:03:03.

Training Association is one of seven companies in the country that

:03:03.:03:09.

train people for eventualities like last night. This session today was

:03:09.:03:13.

for those working on oil and gas rigs, but experts say cruise on

:03:13.:03:18.

board the ferry would have been trained in similar ways. They then

:03:18.:03:22.

have to launch boat, how to recover them, how to identify people in the

:03:23.:03:26.

water. When the lady was pulled out of the sea, she will have been very

:03:26.:03:32.

cold. The crew have to know what to do to enhance chances of survival

:03:32.:03:37.

before they even get back to the ship. The one-man has now been

:03:37.:03:42.

released from Scarborough Hospital, returning home to Hertfordshire

:03:42.:03:46.

with a story of survival she will never forget -- the woman has been

:03:46.:03:50.

released. He incredible story. And it has

:03:50.:03:54.

been a very busy 24 hours for rescue crews along the Humber. They

:03:55.:03:59.

were scramble to Immingham docks this morning to help free a 30 ft

:03:59.:04:03.

whale calf stranded on the nearby mudflats. Crispin Rolfe was there

:04:03.:04:09.

as crews battled to save its life. I actually loaded up my revolve --

:04:09.:04:13.

I loaded at my revolver with bullets, because at one time, I

:04:13.:04:18.

thought whoops. The outcome is unbelievable. They started with a

:04:18.:04:21.

light. Rescue teams from across the region come to the aid of the

:04:21.:04:26.

stranded minky whale. Became more in hope than expectation, after the

:04:26.:04:30.

cat was found trapped on a mud bank. The mud, hazardous to the whale,

:04:30.:04:35.

was a danger to the rescuers as well. That was not the Aironi wife.

:04:35.:04:40.

It was quite intimidating, when you first saw it, their weight and size

:04:40.:04:46.

of it. We did not want to get too close to it. We started off by

:04:46.:04:52.

digging a trench to help the water come in. We were told we had

:04:52.:04:56.

reached high tide, and the water still have not floated their whale.

:04:56.:05:01.

We started so were the tactics. of theirs was this, using the

:05:01.:05:05.

inshore lifeboat to create waves and frightened of whale into action.

:05:05.:05:12.

Eventually, that had some except -- that had some success. We only had

:05:12.:05:21.

about 15 minutes before the animal would drown. It was a simple option.

:05:21.:05:25.

It is now six hours since rescuers came together to try and ease his

:05:25.:05:29.

way of the mud flat. It is estimated to weigh between 12 and

:05:29.:05:35.

15 tonnes. They have managed to get it out into the water. The question

:05:35.:05:40.

now is worried be able to swim for itself and escape to the safety of

:05:40.:05:43.

the Humber? Rescuers held their breath, fearing

:05:43.:05:46.

the worst, that the tide would fall to fast and there were would have

:05:46.:05:53.

to be put out of its misery. Until base. Fins turning, sea churning,

:05:53.:05:59.

and an escaping to the Humber and to its waiting mother. It will be

:05:59.:06:04.

known whether it has made it to the safety of the North Sea in another

:06:04.:06:07.

24 hours, but for the rescuers, the result they hoped for but never

:06:07.:06:15.

really believed could happen. are over the moon. It makes you

:06:15.:06:21.

feel wonderful. Crispin is in the studio now. How did the best two

:06:21.:06:25.

teams make sure this had a happy ending? Extraordinary stuff. These

:06:25.:06:30.

things often do not go the way we plan them. It has been a very long

:06:30.:06:37.

day for the rescuers. The whale was stranded at four am. By 8 o'clock,

:06:37.:06:44.

a team of rescuers began trying to free it. By 10am, 20 rescuers had

:06:44.:06:50.

got out to the shoreline, turning up the whale into one upright

:06:50.:06:56.

position. That was critical for its breathing. They began to dig a

:06:56.:07:03.

channel to try and release it. 1:30pm, and high tide. Not high

:07:03.:07:08.

enough to float the wealth, but enough to turn it, so it faced

:07:08.:07:12.

forwards towards the Humber. By 2:30pm, the tide had turned and

:07:12.:07:17.

there was a possibility that they would again run out of water. One

:07:17.:07:22.

told me that they had had half an hour to save the whale at this putt,

:07:22.:07:29.

and it was getting to just before 3 o'clock that they successfully

:07:29.:07:33.

freed the Whale and gutted to swim away into open water. Her plea to

:07:33.:07:39.

the safety of the North's sea. Thank you very much. -- hopefully

:07:39.:07:44.

to the safety of the North Sea. In a moment: Back to school, but

:07:44.:07:51.

not as we know it. New classrooms. It is 40 ft tall and cost more than

:07:51.:07:56.

�90,000 to put up. A climbing frame at a Cleethorpes youth centre is to

:07:56.:07:59.

be taken down and move to a new site after complaints from people

:08:00.:08:06.

living nearby. It could cost a further �70,000 of taxpayers' money

:08:06.:08:10.

to do it. It was meant to improve the lives

:08:10.:08:20.
:08:20.:08:49.

It is hoped a private sector partnership will help Shell some of

:08:49.:08:57.

the costs, and they will charge people to use it. A waste of money.

:08:57.:09:00.

That money could be put into education or something. I disagree

:09:00.:09:06.

with it, totally disagree. Council officers planned the site under

:09:06.:09:09.

delegated powers, which means councillors did not need to

:09:09.:09:13.

scrutinise plans. Leonor Pidgen was in charge of leisure at the time

:09:13.:09:17.

and she admits it could have been handled better. All the sudden,

:09:17.:09:21.

this sprouting on your doorstep virtually overnight, without really

:09:21.:09:26.

knowing it was coming and how high it would be, I think they needed

:09:26.:09:31.

more consultation and explanation. They new administration said they

:09:31.:09:38.

wanted backing used as soon as possible. Mistakes do happen. We

:09:38.:09:45.

have to correct that now. That is the important thing. Until a

:09:45.:09:47.

private partner comes forward, the question of when people can start

:09:47.:09:55.

using this again is left hanging. I have been speaking to Councillor

:09:55.:09:59.

Chris Shaw, the leader of North East Lincolnshire Council. I asked

:09:59.:10:03.

whether he thought the playground was a bad mistake. Not really. The

:10:03.:10:12.

thing is, Peter, we inherited the problem. We were given three

:10:12.:10:16.

choices. The first was to do nothing, which was not an option.

:10:16.:10:21.

The second was to scrap the same, which could have been a total waste

:10:21.:10:28.

of taxpayers' money. The third choice was to have it resurrected

:10:28.:10:33.

where people could use it. could any council of any party end

:10:33.:10:40.

up in this situation? It had not been properly checked! I was

:10:40.:10:43.

involved in the decision-making process and it was first erected.

:10:43.:10:52.

It is a problem we inherited. You're dismissing Miss, but it is

:10:52.:10:55.

�92,000 of taxpayers' money for something which are standing idle.

:10:55.:11:03.

Do you want to apologise? I have nothing to apologise for. I would

:11:03.:11:09.

apologise if I had spent �92,000 for it to stand idle. It will be

:11:09.:11:15.

used. It is standing idle now. It will cost another �17,000 to move

:11:15.:11:22.

it. The thing about 80 years we have a choice, we either leave it

:11:22.:11:27.

there or remove it. It was a bad decision made by what was a

:11:27.:11:32.

coalition council. It was one offers a's mistake. A topper said

:11:32.:11:38.

does not work for the authority. you want to apologise for the waste

:11:38.:11:45.

of �92,000? I cannot apologise for someone else's mistake. How sure

:11:45.:11:51.

are you there can be another site found? We are working with people

:11:51.:11:59.

who have expressed an interest in putting it on their side.

:11:59.:12:03.

English language, when will kids be able to pay -- when will could be

:12:03.:12:09.

able to play on it? We hope it will be within 12 months. I will invite

:12:09.:12:14.

you to play on it, and you can even bring Paul Hudson. Thank-you. How

:12:14.:12:19.

do you feel about the amount of taxpayers' money being spent to

:12:19.:12:22.

pull the structure down? Should it have been put up in the first

:12:22.:12:32.
:12:32.:12:47.

A toddler who drowned in a lake at a Lincolnshire caravan park has

:12:47.:12:53.

been named as 19 month old high game from Peterborough. The toddler

the production line and on the road Tonight's photo is of straw bales.

:14:31.:14:36.

A lovely picture, perfect September colours.

:14:36.:14:41.

A quick update now on the digital switch-over. If you live in certain

:14:41.:14:44.

parts of the area, you may have seen adverts advising you to retune

:14:44.:14:47.

on September 7th. But, because you are seeing this programme right now,

:14:47.:14:50.

it means you are getting your pictures from the Belmont

:14:50.:14:52.

transmitter which has already switched. The advice is, if you

:14:52.:14:55.

like what you are seeing now, no need to retune again, just keep

:14:55.:15:05.
:15:05.:15:21.

watching. The headline is a very unsettled

:15:21.:15:29.

one as we said yesterday. Autumn has already arrived. We have had

:15:29.:15:34.

gusts of 50 miles an hour. You can see the number of isobars for

:15:34.:15:38.

tomorrow suggests it will be a windy day. It offers some

:15:38.:15:41.

protection from the showers that will be packing into western parts

:15:41.:15:45.

of the country. Some places will actually stay dry despite the fact

:15:45.:15:50.

that it is a very unsettled section. Here is this morning's rain, this

:15:50.:15:55.

vivid cold front, it has left behind and mix of cloud and

:15:55.:15:59.

sunshine. Some shares have been getting across but most cases it

:15:59.:16:03.

right now are dry with some sunshine. Overnight, the risk of a

:16:03.:16:07.

few blustery showers Cushing in from the West but they should be

:16:07.:16:13.

few and far between. Quite a few places will stay dry but very windy

:16:13.:16:21.

- that is the main feature of the weather. Temperatures down to 11

:16:21.:16:31.
:16:31.:16:33.

degrees. The sun will rise in the Another very windy day to come but

:16:33.:16:37.

it should be fairly bright. It looks set to the summit at times

:16:37.:16:44.

but a few blustery showers cannot be ruled out. Later, a cloud may

:16:45.:16:50.

well increase from the West. But there will be a fair amount of dry

:16:50.:16:54.

weather in between those scattered showers. The winner will be strong

:16:54.:17:03.

and from the West, we are looking at highs of holiday in 17 degrees.

:17:03.:17:07.

Patchy rain at first on Thursday, brighter later and a similar story

:17:07.:17:17.
:17:17.:17:30.

Hull FC have announced coach Richard Agar is to leave the club

:17:30.:17:35.

at the end of the season. He has described working at the KC Stadium

:17:35.:17:45.
:17:45.:17:47.

as an honour. Richard Agar has been with the

:17:47.:17:49.

Black and Whites since 2005, initially as assistant coach before

:17:49.:17:58.

being put in the hot seat on May 2008. A Challenge Cup final

:17:58.:18:06.

appearance in 2008 was the highlight of his reign.

:18:06.:18:09.

Challenge Cup final, obviously be didn't get the result but for any

:18:09.:18:13.

coach to take his team to Wembley is a major honour. His departure

:18:13.:18:16.

comes six weeks after the club was taken over by Hull City's Adam

:18:17.:18:23.

Pearson. At the time, he said Agar was going nowhere. In a statement

:18:23.:18:33.
:18:33.:18:42.

All the best for the future. We recognise the exciting new chapter

:18:42.:18:51.

in the club's history. We're looking forward to the search for a

:18:51.:18:58.

new head coach. The first couple of seasons was all right but all he

:18:58.:19:03.

has done since then his lose games. A I think it is sad because of are

:19:03.:19:06.

the last couple of years he did well, getting a good team together

:19:06.:19:11.

and then sometimes it changes for people. In a statement earlier

:19:11.:19:21.
:19:21.:19:26.

Agar is now being heavily linked with the vacant job at Wakefield

:19:26.:19:30.

and it's expected that Peter Gentle will be confirmed as next coach of

:19:30.:19:33.

Hull FC but with at least two games left in the season, fans here in

:19:33.:19:43.
:19:43.:19:46.

West Hull hope it won't cause any We have just heard that all schools

:19:46.:19:49.

across Lincolnshire have today been urged to become academies by the

:19:49.:19:51.

county council. Hull's newest Academy building has thrown open

:19:51.:19:54.

its doors to pupils for the first time. Sirius building incorporating

:19:54.:19:59.

Ganton special school has cost more than �48 million. Archbishop

:19:59.:20:02.

Sentamu's new building across in East Hull opens next week. They are

:20:02.:20:04.

part of the huge �400 million Building Schools for the Future

:20:04.:20:10.

programme in the city. The serious Academy certainly has

:20:10.:20:16.

an impressive looked, with facilities ranging from a 3 D

:20:16.:20:20.

interactive hall and a demonstration Lab. Tell me what you

:20:20.:20:26.

see. The pupils certainly seem to impress. Everything is brand new

:20:26.:20:29.

and of the range, it is great to have such an opportunity to be in

:20:29.:20:35.

such a fabulous environment. should be better for the grades.

:20:35.:20:41.

Before we had a uniform and everyone will now get down to

:20:41.:20:45.

learning and everyone will concentrate a lot more. This new-

:20:45.:20:48.

build is regarded very much as the icing on the cake, progress already

:20:48.:20:56.

achieved here at the Academy. For instance, in 2008, just 18%

:20:56.:21:00.

achieved five GCSEs including English and maths. By this year,

:21:00.:21:06.

that had risen to 46%. Staff are confident these new facilities will

:21:06.:21:10.

help improve attainment even further. It is investing in young

:21:10.:21:15.

people and it has an impact in raising standards and showing that

:21:15.:21:21.

they are valued and giving children the opportunity to study in a 21st

:21:21.:21:24.

century environment means that they are prepared for the future. Across

:21:24.:21:30.

the city, last minute preparations are underway at another academy

:21:30.:21:36.

which opens next week. When we opened today, everybody was so

:21:37.:21:42.

surprised. The facilities are a truly spectacular here. We have a

:21:42.:21:47.

fully professional theatre, we have a wonderful cybercafe and basically,

:21:47.:21:53.

if the student has an interest in something, they can follow it here.

:21:53.:21:55.

The �400 million schools for the Future programme will see every

:21:55.:22:00.

secondary and special school in Hull either rebuilt or remodelled.

:22:00.:22:04.

We have a real chance now of making an impact because we have the

:22:04.:22:10.

facilities and these are not just facilities that are bench marks,

:22:10.:22:16.

they are the best in the country. These are the first academies to be

:22:16.:22:20.

completed, the rest should be finished by 2014. Children

:22:20.:22:23.

attending the schools are certainly the lucky ones as there is unlikely

:22:23.:22:26.

to be the school's building programme on the scale for decades

:22:26.:22:34.

to come. We have had a big response to our

:22:34.:22:38.

story about speed cameras in Lincolnshire being vandalised. More

:22:38.:22:40.

than �300,000 has been spent this year in the county, fixing

:22:40.:22:48.

vandalised cameras. The Road Safety Partnership says 16 sites have been

:22:48.:22:51.

targeted since the start of the year including speed cameras in

:22:51.:23:01.
:23:01.:23:28.

Lincoln, Grantham, Louth and Colin Dexter has received an

:23:28.:23:32.

honorary degree from the University of Lincoln today. He brought us one

:23:32.:23:39.

of TV's most loved detectives, Inspector Morse. He told the

:23:39.:23:44.

audience today that he still is proud to be a yellow belly!

:23:44.:23:52.

I thought it was extraordinarily clever Lee organised because there

:23:52.:23:57.

was an awful lot to get through. I think the audience must have been

:23:57.:24:04.

extremely happy that there was only one honoree, me, because if they

:24:04.:24:09.

had had to listen to have a dozen, that might have had been too long.

:24:09.:24:13.

Take a look at this - the smallest car on the planet. It's just 1.5

:24:13.:24:16.

metres long and fits just one person. And it's made in

:24:16.:24:26.
:24:26.:24:33.

Our love for the small car has continued through the years with

:24:33.:24:38.
