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

:00:04.:00:14.
:00:14.:00:17.

A primary school bans nuts from its pupils' lunchboxes. I think they

:00:17.:00:22.

need to relax. If my child suffered, I would be happy for that warning

:00:23.:00:26.

to go out. The leader of Boston Borough

:00:26.:00:28.

Council describes a newspaper article about immigration in town

:00:28.:00:37.

as disgusting. This this town troubled or tranquil? I am here to

:00:37.:00:41.

find out. The family giving up food from afar

:00:41.:00:44.

as they source all their meals from close to home.

:00:44.:00:48.

The teenage singing star who's the next big thing down under, all the

:00:48.:00:56.

way from Scunthorpe. And join me for the detailed

:00:56.:01:06.
:01:06.:01:08.

weekend forecast in the next 15 An increase in the number of

:01:09.:01:13.

children suffering from food allergies has forced an East

:01:13.:01:17.

Yorkshire school to ban nuts from all packed lunches. Parents were

:01:17.:01:21.

told about the change of policy in a text message warning them that

:01:21.:01:27.

nuts must not be brought into Minster School in Beverley. It is

:01:27.:01:32.

just the latest school to introduce such a ban but it is prompting

:01:32.:01:38.

claims that this is a step too far. Our correspondent has been finding

:01:38.:01:44.

out more. This girl has only recently been

:01:44.:01:48.

diagnosed with a nut allergy and she is getting used to the special

:01:48.:01:52.

equipment that comes with it. Her mother has nothing but praise for

:01:52.:01:58.

the school which has had a ban on nuts for some years. They have been

:01:59.:02:03.

very supportive, and sometimes I have felt like I am being a pain,

:02:03.:02:08.

because I have been at the school, checking things are in place and

:02:08.:02:14.

they have the medications. It is not just at meal times that nuts

:02:14.:02:22.

are banned. The children are very creative and they do extract cities.

:02:22.:02:28.

We have the parents sending in things like empty cereal packets,

:02:28.:02:35.

but we ask them not to include anything that might have that nuts.

:02:35.:02:40.

One in 50 children are now estimated to suffer from a nut

:02:40.:02:44.

allergy and it is estimated that boys are 30% more likely than girls

:02:44.:02:50.

to suffer from the condition. It is also thought that children from

:02:50.:02:58.

affluent families have a higher rate of nut allergies.

:02:58.:03:03.

We have organised some reminder training...

:03:03.:03:11.

At Minster primary, the latest school to ban nut products in

:03:11.:03:16.

packed lunches. If my child suffered, I would be very happy for

:03:16.:03:21.

that warning to go out. They are just being careful, I do not have a

:03:22.:03:29.

problem with it. I think they need to relax all these things. Take

:03:29.:03:36.

individual cases. Nobody knows why food intolerances and allergies are

:03:36.:03:40.

on the increase, but it is certain that more schools will have to

:03:40.:03:45.

develop strategies to protect their pupils.

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:03:57.

Joining me is Mandy East. How common is it for nuts to be banned

:03:57.:04:04.

in schools? We do hear of schools who ban nuts. Particularly in

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

schools where there are the younger children, year one classes. Given

:04:14.:04:19.

that you represent those at risk from severe allergic reactions,

:04:19.:04:23.

presumably you are pleased about this?

:04:23.:04:28.

We do not actually have a policy to introduce not bans across the board

:04:28.:04:33.

in schools. One of the reasons for this is that children can be

:04:33.:04:39.

allergic to a lot of substances, milk, fish, and you cannot ban

:04:39.:04:45.

everything that children may be allergic to. We also feel is lolls

:04:45.:04:51.

children into a false sense of safety. We cannot ever say that a

:04:51.:04:56.

school is 100% not free. So actually this could have a

:04:56.:05:00.

counter-productive effect? What the family and the child have

:05:00.:05:04.

to understand is that while the school is doing everything they can,

:05:04.:05:09.

been on allergic children's families will not be reading labels

:05:09.:05:14.

in the same way. It is sensible not to allow peanut butter sandwiches

:05:14.:05:19.

and lunch boxes, we are not sure that you can ban all nuts

:05:19.:05:28.

altogether. Thank you very much. I am interested to hear what parents

:05:28.:05:36.

think. You may think that parents should be able to send their

:05:36.:05:41.

children to school with whatever food they choose. Get in touch in

:05:41.:05:51.
:05:51.:06:02.

the usual ways. Here are the Coming up: 50 times quicker, super-

:06:02.:06:07.

fast broadband begins in rural parts of East Yorkshire.

:06:07.:06:10.

The head of Boston Borough Council has described a national newspaper

:06:10.:06:14.

article about immigration in the town as totally skewed and

:06:14.:06:20.

disgusting. Peter Hitchens claims that emigration has led to a

:06:20.:06:22.

strange and troubling Trans formation, their cultural

:06:22.:06:28.

differences have created barriers between local people and migrants.

:06:28.:06:33.

I will talk to Peter Hitchens shortly. What have people been

:06:34.:06:42.

saying there locally? People are bemused. Nobody is denying that the

:06:42.:06:47.

mass influx of Eastern European workers has changed the town but

:06:47.:06:52.

they do object to the prop -- be provocative picture painted in that

:06:52.:06:58.

article. I spoke to a Portuguese family earlier. The father told me

:06:58.:07:03.

he brought his children here and I asked him if he had experienced

:07:03.:07:08.

this negativity and segregation. People come here to work and have a

:07:08.:07:13.

good life but they bring business to this country as well. They bring

:07:13.:07:20.

money. They have to say that -- see this from the other side. They just

:07:20.:07:28.

see that people come men to take a job from them, but it is not true.

:07:28.:07:34.

What have people said today? They would like to invite this

:07:34.:07:38.

journalist to Boston and spend some time here. They are not very

:07:38.:07:44.

pleased. I think it was totally missed directed and not really a

:07:44.:07:50.

reflection of what Boston is. The national media seem to have picked

:07:50.:07:56.

up on the fact that Boston is an immigration centre. Yes, we have a

:07:56.:08:00.

lot of immigrants, but in the majority of cases, people get on

:08:00.:08:07.

together. Is this a troubled town or a tranquil place? Nobody has

:08:07.:08:12.

denied there are problems but that provocative tome in the article

:08:12.:08:22.
:08:22.:08:27.

upsets people here. -- tone. The journalist concerned is Peter

:08:27.:08:32.

Hitchens. He told me earlier that the council's criticism of his

:08:32.:08:37.

article is unfounded. I do not know what basis they have for saying

:08:37.:08:43.

that. I made no criticism of the local council, the authorities or

:08:43.:08:48.

the local people. I do not think anyone living in Boston, or indeed

:08:48.:08:53.

the in commerce, are to blame for what has happened. I think this is

:08:53.:08:57.

the result of decisions made hundreds of miles away by

:08:57.:09:01.

politicians who do not care about Boston. Are you saying there are

:09:01.:09:08.

too many immigrants for that small town? When the numbers are so large,

:09:08.:09:14.

and they are very large in Boston, and with the language difference is

:09:14.:09:21.

so great, and indeed the cultural differences, people who have grown

:09:21.:09:25.

up in many cases in the Soviet empire in completely different

:09:25.:09:31.

cases -- situations. I think it does transform the place in a way

:09:31.:09:38.

that makes people uncomfortable, lead to one necessary hostility. We

:09:38.:09:43.

it do not want that to happen. you think that Boston is in a mess

:09:43.:09:48.

because of this cultural barrier? It is not for me to say as an

:09:48.:09:54.

outsider. With goodwill and hard work, people could overcome this. I

:09:54.:09:59.

hope that they do. I think it would be ridiculous to claim that this

:09:59.:10:05.

has not caused major problems for the people of the town. What are

:10:05.:10:11.

those problems? I just think it is very difficult for a town of that

:10:11.:10:20.

size to function, when there are two almost isolated communities

:10:20.:10:25.

within the same city limits. yet without those people, many of

:10:25.:10:31.

these shops which are open would be boarded up. Many of the

:10:31.:10:37.

employers'... I have said that in the article. But what compensation

:10:38.:10:44.

is that to the people of Boston who feel that the place they grew up in

:10:44.:10:50.

is no longer familiar to them? I think there is more to life than

:10:50.:10:56.

economics and money. Living in a place where you feel funnel their

:10:56.:11:01.

and where you know your fellow creatures is important. -- where

:11:02.:11:11.

you feel familiar. Thank you very much.

places are dry, and later on, we will see rain spreading in from the

Woodmansey near Beverley are trialling a new service with speeds

of up to 100 megabits - well above the national average of 6.2

megabits. It means they can now download an entire music album in

it comes to internet usage. They are regularly on line for shopping

:15:54.:16:00.

and entertainment. They are the first in the Hull area to try out a

:16:00.:16:05.

super-fast broadcast -- broadband service. I will be using it for

:16:05.:16:10.

iPlayer and Facebook. Also Downloading using -- music. Once

:16:10.:16:17.

they have connected the cable, the capacity will allow multiple users

:16:17.:16:21.

to watch TV and front online businesses. Simultaneously if

:16:21.:16:26.

necessary. It is one of the first products in the UK to be rolled out

:16:26.:16:31.

in this way, using fibreglass cables straight into customer's

home. This could soon be rolled out across the whole city. As a nation,

:16:39.:16:43.

we are getting hungrier and hungrier for internet data. Be that

:16:43.:16:48.

downloading films or working from home. The network that delivers all

:16:48.:16:52.

of that is going to need to have much greater capacity in years to

come. Another of -- a number of other companies are planning to

:16:57.:17:03.

offer super-fast broadband in Hull and the surrounding areas. It will

:17:03.:17:08.

encourage businesses to stay in the City, it will encourage investment,

:17:08.:17:16.

and it is about encouraging jobs. The rural communities especially

:17:16.:17:22.

see broadband connection as vital. These people dug their own trenches

:17:22.:17:29.

to build a cable. I could never use online shopping for grocery

:17:29.:17:35.

shopping. It took too long to check the ingredients and things I wanted

to buy. Now I can check ingredients in an instant. Fastball back --

out to prove they can survive by only eating food which is grown or

:18:05.:18:09.

made close to where they live. For the next week, they will gather all

:18:09.:18:12.

their supplies from within a 20 mile radius of their home. But as

:18:12.:18:15.

Crispin Rolfe reports, that means no fish, no sugar, and a struggle

:18:15.:18:22.

to find milk. They have wanted some honey to take back to Germany.

:18:22.:18:28.

These people have set up -- set themselves a challenge to eat food

and produced within 20 miles of their home. We are going to eat

:18:38.:18:43.

fairly normally. We are substituting some of our projects -

:18:43.:18:53.

- products. We are so subsidising. We are surprised by the number of

:18:53.:18:56.

dairy farmers who have gone out of businesses because of the prices

:18:56.:19:00.

they are getting, and consequently, we have had real difficulties

:19:00.:19:08.

finding a local dairy. Another problem is a sugar. But on the

their fortunes around. Some news just in. The Grimsby Town chairman

:20:15.:20:22.

has announced his resignation. He is seen here in the middle. He had

:20:22.:20:27.

been chairman since 2003. In a statement on the club website, he

:20:27.:20:32.

said he is resigning because his position has come -- become

:20:32.:20:36.

untenable now but Mike Parker is the majority shareholder. He

:20:36.:20:45.

refuses to rejoin the current board of directors. More on that tomorrow.

The Imps face a must win game against Gateshead at Sincil Bank

:20:48.:20:51.

tomorrow night with the pressure mounting on manager Steve Tilson.

They were beaten again on Saturday one nil at Luton and are now in the

season. But in the Championship, Hull City won their third game on

victory against Portsmouth. There was a blow when look Fahmy was

down to put their game. A I am really pleased with the players,

:21:40.:21:45.

and I am pleased for them, because we have had an up and down start,

:21:45.:21:49.

but they have shown a lot of character over the last few weeks,

:21:49.:21:56.

to get three wins on the trot. That is credit to their application, and

:21:56.:22:03.

we have played very well today. Scunthorpe salvaged a point away at

:22:03.:22:06.

Walsall, despite losing the lead twice. It was Jimmy Ryan who scored

:22:06.:22:09.

in the final minute of stoppage time. The two all draw leaves the
