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

:00:05.:00:08.

Facing protests again - the Muslims still trying to find a site for a

:00:08.:00:18.

new mosque in Lincoln. It is not racism in any way.

:00:18.:00:21.

Teenager is sentenced to 12 months in prison after injuring a four-

:00:21.:00:31.

year-old girl with a brick. She was just lying there. It was

:00:31.:00:37.

heartbreaking. Joining the Royal Air Force is more than starting a

:00:37.:00:41.

new job. Despite defence cuts, the new

:00:41.:00:43.

recruits need for the future of our military.

:00:43.:00:46.

Forget Monza - the real driving daredevils taking on the hills of

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:01:04.

rural Lincolnshire. A warning in force. The latest in 15 minutes.

:01:04.:01:07.

Residents fighting plans to build a new mosque in Lincoln insist they

:01:07.:01:10.

are not racists. More than 500 people have signed a petition

:01:10.:01:13.

calling for the local council to reject the proposals, which also

:01:13.:01:19.

include a car park and supermarket. It's the second time that the local

:01:19.:01:22.

Islamic Association has tried to build a new mosque in the Boultham

:01:22.:01:32.
:01:32.:01:35.

area of the city in recent years. At a small community centre,

:01:35.:01:40.

Lincoln's Muslims gathered to pray. On Fridays they can be more than

:01:40.:01:45.

150 worshippers. We urgently need her place of worship that is bigger.

:01:45.:01:54.

The needs -- we need a space for women as well. We need to make sure

:01:54.:01:59.

there is a space for them. For more than three years the Islamic

:01:59.:02:04.

Association has been trying to build and the Boultham area. In

:02:05.:02:11.

August 2008 there but given approval to turn a disused

:02:11.:02:20.

warehouse into a mosque. In October 2009, plans for a two-storey mosque

:02:20.:02:25.

were turned down. An appeal was launched, but in 20th August 10,

:02:25.:02:33.

the government rejected it on traffic grounds. Now the Islamic

:02:33.:02:38.

Association is pinning its hopes on this site. They will share it with

:02:38.:02:41.

a supermarket. But the same residents opposed the new scheme as

:02:41.:02:47.

well. We are not objecting because it is a mosque. We are objecting

:02:47.:02:51.

because it is a large public building that will bring a great

:02:51.:02:59.

deal of traffic into the area. It is not racism in any way. We are

:02:59.:03:04.

open to any religion, but we do not think it is the right place. There

:03:04.:03:13.

is too much traffic here. Lincolnshire co-operative that owns

:03:13.:03:20.

the land has submitted plans. there is a commercial development

:03:20.:03:24.

on this site, that for increase the traffic that is already there now,

:03:24.:03:29.

but the advice we have had from Highway consultancies is that that

:03:29.:03:33.

junction can cope with extra traffic. The planning committee

:03:33.:03:38.

will consider the application next month when it will face the

:03:38.:03:47.

difficult task of balancing the needs of the growing Muslim

:03:47.:03:51.

community 80 and Boultham residents. Joining us now is Dr Chris Allen,

:03:51.:03:58.

who has written a book about the spread of Islamophobia. Good

:03:58.:04:01.

evening. Residents say they are against these plans because of

:04:01.:04:09.

traffic and parking. How often do local communities dispute the

:04:09.:04:19.
:04:19.:04:19.

building of mosques? It is happening across the country. We

:04:19.:04:23.

need to disentangle the legitimate concerns that residents had with

:04:23.:04:31.

the illegitimate. There are groups like the BNP and EDL but tried to

:04:31.:04:37.

drive wedges between communities, so up that beat mosque and becomes

:04:37.:04:41.

the big issue that people are divided against. Do people use

:04:41.:04:45.

traffic and parking as an excuse because they don't want a mosque in

:04:45.:04:50.

there then? Absolutely. Sometimes there is a concern about traffic

:04:50.:04:54.

and congestion, but there is no real evidence to suggest that will

:04:54.:04:59.

be the case. If you look at the British Social attitudes survey

:04:59.:05:05.

that was published last year, 55 % of people said they were opposed a

:05:05.:05:08.

mosque been built in their community. If you look at that

:05:08.:05:14.

compared to a church, only 50 % would oppose that. It highlights

:05:14.:05:18.

the issues we have a round Muslims and Islam. In is it an open feeling,

:05:18.:05:25.

or is it lying beneath what they actually say? Sometimes there are

:05:26.:05:30.

legitimate concerns, but a lot of the time, it is a smokescreen and

:05:30.:05:38.

people do not want a directly say they do not want a mosque. What

:05:38.:05:43.

people do is use this as an excuse at times. So how do we get over

:05:43.:05:52.

this, if it exists and break down the stereotypes and prejudice?

:05:52.:05:56.

local authorities need to take a lead in this. They can be very

:05:56.:06:00.

influential. We live in a country where it is everybody's eye to have

:06:00.:06:03.

a religion, or have no revision whatsoever. We need good leadership

:06:03.:06:13.
:06:13.:06:16.

from local authorities. They can find areas before places of worship

:06:16.:06:25.

to be built. Thank you. Do you think that Lincoln should have a

:06:25.:06:34.

dedicated mosque? Or do you agree with the residents? Here is how you

:06:34.:06:44.
:06:44.:06:46.

The council's importing grit as they prepare for a winter, but have

:06:46.:06:51.

they got the cash to get through A teenager from Grimsby is tonight

spending his first night in jail after admitting to throwing a brick

through a van window, injuring the young girl inside. Four-year-old

Jersey Lou Perry suffered serious injuries to her face following the

:07:01.:07:05.

attack by Kallan Richardson in April. Her mother says Jersey Lou

:07:05.:07:15.
:07:15.:07:17.

still has nightmares about what happened.

:07:17.:07:22.

Five months on and victor macro has made a full recovery. Back in April

:07:22.:07:26.

vote these were the pictures that shocked us all - a little girl left

:07:26.:07:30.

with horrendous injuries through the reckless actions of a teenage

:07:30.:07:35.

boy. Kallan Richardson, who is now 18, through the brick following an

:07:35.:07:45.
:07:45.:07:48.

altercation with charred macro's father. -- Jersey Lou's father.

:07:48.:07:53.

was heartbreaking. She went from one extreme to another. She is

:07:53.:08:00.

usually quite loud, but she was just lying there. At Grimsby

:08:00.:08:03.

Magistrates Court, Kallan Richardson apologised to the family

:08:03.:08:08.

and said he was ashamed of what he had done. He was sentenced to a

:08:08.:08:13.

year in prison, six months of which will be set on licence. She knows

:08:13.:08:20.

what pain is now. She did not know that before. It should not have

:08:20.:08:24.

happened to her. It should not have happened to any child. No-one

:08:24.:08:32.

should throw a brick. The court heard how the incident on this

:08:32.:08:37.

street in Grimsby had not been a spur of the moment events.

:08:37.:08:41.

Richardson had dislodged the brick from a nearby wall, chasing the car

:08:41.:08:45.

down here and Derek it through the window as it stopped at this

:08:45.:08:49.

junction. A I just think he is a cupboard. He tried to get away with

:08:49.:08:59.
:08:59.:09:06.

it as long as he could. -- I just then. He is a coward. Jersey Lou

:09:06.:09:11.

has recovered, but she remembers what happened and still has

:09:11.:09:14.

nightmares. A murder inquiry is underway after

:09:14.:09:18.

a man was found dead in the garden of a house in Boston. The 48-year-

:09:18.:09:21.

old was discovered with a single stab wound at a property on

:09:21.:09:23.

Sleaford Road yesterday morning. Detectives are urging any witnesses

:09:23.:09:25.

to come foward. Despite last winter being the worst

:09:25.:09:28.

in 30 years, new figures obtained by BBC Look North show that most

:09:28.:09:31.

councils aren't planning to spend any more this year on keeping the

:09:31.:09:36.

roads safe and clear. Lincolnshire County Council has frozen its

:09:36.:09:39.

budget of �4.4 million and in North Lincolnshire they have done the

:09:39.:09:47.

same, with �500,000 set aside. It's the same picture in the East Riding

:09:47.:09:52.

with spending set at �1.7 million. But in Hull the budget has been cut

:09:52.:09:58.

by almost �8,000 to just over �194,000. North East Lincolnshire

:09:58.:10:03.

Council was unable to provide any figures. Siobhan Robbins has been

:10:03.:10:06.

to find out if the money available will be enough to deal with another

:10:06.:10:12.

harsh winter. This salt arriving at Immingham

:10:12.:10:15.

Docks will be spread on Lincolnshire's roads this winter.

:10:15.:10:18.

And although like the majority, the county council isn't spending any

:10:18.:10:27.

more on protecting the roads. It says it's better prepared than ever.

:10:27.:10:33.

We shall have 42,000 tonnes of salt, which is in excess of what we have

:10:33.:10:39.

had before. It is ready to go as and when it is required.

:10:39.:10:43.

But not everyone's convinced. Last year smaller rural villages were

:10:43.:10:46.

hard hit. Like thousands of others, Middle Rasen school was forced to

:10:46.:10:49.

close. And in nearby Binbrook villagers villagers were cut off by

:10:49.:10:55.

snow - their roads missing out on grit to heavier snow. Last year in

:10:55.:10:59.

particular, the roads were clear. They could have cleared a route

:10:59.:11:03.

into the village. I just hope that somebody in the council is thinking,

:11:03.:11:13.

we need to make a clear way for the school. I was getting to be

:11:13.:11:15.

wholesalers and getting the necessary things. As quick as I was

:11:15.:11:25.
:11:25.:11:27.

buying it, it was selling out too fast, so I had to ration it.

:11:27.:11:31.

snow may be gone, but for much of the year council budgets had been

:11:31.:11:36.

on ice. When the bad weather returns, at Maine Road will be the

:11:36.:11:40.

priority and there will be more pressure on smaller communities

:11:40.:11:43.

like this one to protect themselves. Villagers in Gilberdyke in East

:11:43.:11:46.

Yorkshire are used to working together. Last year they used a JCB

:11:46.:11:49.

to clear the roads, but beofre this becomes a permanent move they say

:11:49.:11:59.
:11:59.:11:59.

they need more council support. need more of the raw-material so

:11:59.:12:06.

available. Even if it is for the locals to put out, it will make

:12:06.:12:16.
:12:16.:12:17.

sense. It did not happen last year. We were forgotten about. Towns and

:12:17.:12:22.

parish councils have received money for self-help. East Riding is 1,000

:12:22.:12:26.

square miles and we cannot treat every where when we get this tough

:12:26.:12:29.

conditions. All the councils say they've

:12:29.:12:32.

stocked up on salt and their gritters are ready, but until snow

:12:32.:12:35.

falls again we won't know how well the lessons of last year have been

:12:35.:12:45.
:12:45.:12:56.

learnt. Will there be one last accolade for the outgoing coaches

:12:56.:13:06.
:13:06.:13:06.

of Our Super League teens? And it's beget Monza, look out Lincolnshire.

gradually ease down as the night wears on. Still windy tomorrow with

some sunshine and a few showers. You can see the isobars on

:14:28.:14:32.

tomorrow's charts. There will be some sunshine as well. Despite the

:14:32.:14:37.

wind, it has been a nice afternoon. We have had sunshine and

:14:37.:14:43.

temperatures up to 20 Celsius. Very windy this evening. Overnight looks

:15:52.:15:55.

The armed forces still need new recruits from East Yorkshire and

:15:55.:15:57.

Lincolnshire despite the cuts announced in the Government's

:15:57.:16:00.

Defence Review. That is according to the head of RAF recruiting who

:16:00.:16:03.

has been speaking to BBC Look North at the start of our Armed Forces

:16:03.:16:06.

Week. Gemma Dawson reports. Calvin is preparing to lead his own

:16:06.:16:12.

to join the Army. My brother is in to join the Army. My brother is in

:16:12.:16:20.

the army. It is really good. And this is what he will be

:16:20.:16:23.

training for. Calvin's joining the infantry, which means he could end

:16:23.:16:26.

up serving in Afghanistan. But with more than 330 servicemen and women

:16:26.:16:29.

killed in action there, his mum's concerned. I did not want him

:16:29.:16:34.

joining, to be honest. I am proud of them now. It is what he wants.

:16:34.:16:41.

But it is frightening, the thought of him being out there. Joining the

:16:41.:16:45.

Royal Air Force is a lot more than just starting a new job.

:16:45.:16:49.

These new RAF recruits in Hull are the latest to join up. In the last

:16:49.:16:51.

year, nearly 14,000 people have entered the armed forces. But

:16:51.:17:00.

compared to the previous 12 months, that's a 25% drop. Our recruit

:17:00.:17:03.

their numbers are slightly down this year. But we are still looking

:17:03.:17:08.

to recruit 2000 people this year for the Royal Air Force alone.

:17:08.:17:10.

Life is about to change dramatically for Rachael who has

:17:10.:17:15.

been working in a bar in Kirk Ella. My it can be demanding here, but in

:17:16.:17:21.

air force, there can be no mistakes. James has also handed in his notice

:17:21.:17:28.

at the betting shop in Hull where he's been working. Working here,

:17:28.:17:33.

you are not going to get shot. But in Afghanistan and Libya, that is a

:17:33.:17:38.

chance. They have now started their basic training at RAF Halton and

:17:38.:17:44.

are being tested, to see if they're fit enough for the forces. For them

:17:44.:17:48.

the RAF, won't just be a job, it'll become a way of life. Gemma Dawson,

:17:48.:17:52.

BBC Look North. Joining me now is Sir Michael

:17:52.:17:59.

Graydon, former Chief of Air Staff. 17,000 jobs in the Armed Forces

:17:59.:18:03.

have to go by 2015, should these new recruits be concerned about

:18:03.:18:09.

their job security? I think that is a big question. I suspect it is a

:18:09.:18:14.

question very much on the minds of the leadership of the armed

:18:14.:18:19.

services. As you have rightly said, the Armed Forces have been cut

:18:19.:18:23.

fairly severely. But it is splendid to hear that young people still

:18:23.:18:28.

want to join the Armed Forces. I am delighted to hear that. A idea

:18:28.:18:31.

surprise that people are still very keen to sign up and joined the be

:18:31.:18:40.

see what is happening in Afghanistan? -- when we see. I am

:18:40.:18:45.

not surprised. I think young people traditionally want excitement, what

:18:45.:18:51.

adventure. And today's done generation are no different. What

:18:51.:18:56.

is the appeal of the job? Excite what is one thing of course.

:18:56.:19:06.
:19:06.:19:11.

Trouble. -- excitement. And the I think young people identify with

:19:11.:19:14.

that excitement. They want to belong to something that is quite

:19:14.:19:24.
:19:24.:19:34.

special. The Armed Forces or first that. -- offers that. Do the Armed

:19:34.:19:39.

Forces offer what they did 20 years ago? Are pay a will have to offer

:19:39.:19:49.
:19:49.:19:50.

their -- I think you will have to ask the new recruits that. It is

:19:50.:19:55.

very different. Many more campaigns nowadays. Thank you very much for

:19:55.:20:00.

talking to us. It's Monday, so Damian is here as

:20:00.:20:10.
:20:10.:20:11.

And Damian, both our Super League sides now know who they will meet

:20:12.:20:21.
:20:22.:20:24.

in the playoffs. Yes, Hull is at Leeds. Hull K R

:20:24.:20:32.

against Catalans. Hull FC now know the identity of their new coach for

:20:32.:20:34.

next season. He's the Australian Peter Gentle who will succeed the

:20:34.:20:37.

departing Richard Agar. Before then, both Hull clubs are in play-off

:20:37.:20:40.

action next weekend, dreaming of a place in the Grand Final at Old

:20:40.:20:42.

Trafford next month. Simon Clark reports.

:20:42.:20:45.

When Peter Gentle arrives in Hull, he is in for a pleasant surprise.

:20:45.:20:55.
:20:55.:20:55.

Two of his players had been picked for a dream team. Both confess they

:20:55.:21:05.
:21:05.:21:06.

do not know much about the new man. I have not heard too much about him.

:21:06.:21:10.

It is an exciting future for the club by the was see what happens

:21:10.:21:16.

next year. That is next season. I am not concentrating on next season.

:21:16.:21:24.

I do not want to lose my focus which is on the play-offs. Hull at

:21:24.:21:27.

me to show more to get the better of Leeds in the play-offs following

:21:27.:21:32.

Friday's defeat against Warrington. Hull K R Arran Gray form heading

:21:32.:21:42.
:21:42.:21:49.

back to the south of France after defeating Castleford. -- Hull KR

:21:49.:21:55.

will be. We are both looking forward to the match. They had a

:21:56.:21:59.

good win against Salford saw their confidence will be renewed. I am

:22:00.:22:05.

looking forward to it. All roads lead to Old Trafford, but first

:22:05.:22:12.

there are the games in a Headingley and the south of France. But Hull K

:22:12.:22:21.

R chairman will be on a flight to Australia looking for a successor

:22:21.:22:25.

to Justin Morgan. Onto football now and Scunthorpe

:22:25.:22:27.

United are to appeal against the controversial red card awarded to

:22:27.:22:30.

Andy Barcham in Saturday's draw with Sheffield United. If the

:22:30.:22:32.

appeal is successful, Barcham would be available for tomorrow night's

:22:32.:22:35.

game at Rochdale. The Iron are still without a league win this

:22:35.:22:42.

season which remains a real puzzle. Seven games in and still no big win

:22:43.:22:46.

for Scunthorpe United. Already this season, they have hit the woodwork

:22:46.:22:51.

seven times, suffered controversial red cards and had a late winning

:22:51.:22:56.

goals chalked off. You just have to keep that belief and as long as our

:22:56.:23:00.

performances are good, and we are playing really well, it will come.

:23:00.:23:06.

I think it is just around the corner. If you look at the league

:23:06.:23:12.

table... I do not look at it, not after six or seven games. I am

:23:12.:23:15.

quite sure that league table will be death from by the end of the

:23:15.:23:20.

season. It was another frustrating after them on Saturday. Andy

:23:20.:23:24.

Barcham it was controversially red- carded for this file on Michael

:23:24.:23:34.
:23:34.:23:35.

Doyle. The decision has been appealed. Scunthorpe a lead after

:23:35.:23:41.

this goal on half-time. Despite their continued dominance,

:23:41.:23:46.

Sheffield United equalised. The search for that elusive first
