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

:00:05.:00:08.

They fought for our country. Now former military personnel in Hull

:00:08.:00:17.

are told they'll get priority treatment for council services.

:00:17.:00:23.

have our lives road from us. I feel quite bitter. We have had our lives

:00:23.:00:26.

ripped from us. The BAE workers campaigning to save

:00:26.:00:29.

their jobs, who are cycling through the night to speak directly to the

:00:29.:00:36.

Prime Minister. I are not the factory, where workers say they are

:00:36.:00:38.

determined to get their voice across.

:00:38.:00:41.

Fans get a voice. Grimsby Town's biggest shareholder hands over a

:00:41.:00:43.

dominant stake in the club to the supporters trust.

:00:43.:00:45.

And spilling its secrets. The 1,000-year-old salt-making works

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:01:02.

uncovered in Lincolnshire. Join me Good evening.

:01:02.:01:05.

They fight for our country, but often claim they are left

:01:05.:01:08.

unsupported when they return to life on "civvy street." Today Hull

:01:08.:01:11.

City Council has made history by becoming the first in the country

:01:11.:01:13.

to promise veterans they'll get priority treatment for council

:01:13.:01:18.

services. The so-called veterans charter will see servicemen and

:01:18.:01:21.

women given free access to leisure centres, help getting housing and

:01:21.:01:31.
:01:31.:01:32.

help finding new jobs. Simon Spark has more. I came out of the RAF

:01:32.:01:36.

last year, and than it really difficult. You do not just lose

:01:36.:01:40.

your job, you lose your home, like a family in a sense, because that

:01:40.:01:50.
:01:50.:01:52.

is what they are. It is like your way of life. You're dumped. Paul is

:01:52.:01:55.

one of the ex Armed Forces personnel who have returned to

:01:55.:01:59.

civilian life then had to cope with no support. We knew having done

:01:59.:02:03.

your rate for 12 years and have to live with your parents, it is not a

:02:03.:02:13.
:02:13.:02:14.

nice feeling. -- when you have lived on your own with your...

:02:14.:02:20.

Signature after signature from leaders endorsing a veteran's

:02:20.:02:23.

charter. It is the first in the country to recognise the role of

:02:23.:02:27.

those who served in the Merchant Navy, and the first to offer

:02:27.:02:34.

practical help. Free access to leisure centres, and advice. A do

:02:34.:02:39.

not want to see a situation where I meet people who have ended up

:02:39.:02:43.

living in Pearson Park after they left service, because nobody helped

:02:43.:02:48.

them. The question is whether this charter would have helped cases

:02:48.:02:52.

like Aron Shelton, who returned injured from Afghanistan, but had

:02:52.:02:58.

to fight for his right to mobility benefits. Sean spent 20 years

:02:58.:03:02.

trying to get Gulf war syndrome recognised as an illness. They

:03:02.:03:07.

should not be a precipice. There needs to be a transition. Whether

:03:07.:03:12.

these commitments and promises make the difference they need to will be

:03:12.:03:16.

judged in the months to come. I'd like to hear your thoughts on

:03:16.:03:21.

this. Is it right that veterans should be given this help? Where

:03:21.:03:24.

should the line be drawn - what about firefighters or police

:03:24.:03:31.

officers? Perhaps you're a former serviceman or woman. Did you get

:03:31.:03:41.
:03:41.:03:51.

help or support adapting to life on In a moment:

:03:51.:03:54.

How Lincoln and Hull are vying to fly the prestigious purple flag for

:03:54.:04:04.
:04:04.:04:06.

the quality of their nightlife. Workers at BAE systems in Brough

:04:07.:04:09.

are preparing to head to the Tory party conference, after learning

:04:09.:04:12.

almost 900 jobs at the East Yorkshire site are to go. Nine

:04:12.:04:15.

employees are cycling across the Pennines to Manchester, hoping to

:04:15.:04:18.

ask the Prime Minister how he intends to help. Paul Murphy is in

:04:18.:04:22.

Brough for us this evening. Paul, what exactly are they hoping to

:04:22.:04:31.

achieve by doing this? You can probably see the gathering

:04:31.:04:34.

crowd of cyclists and their families and friends behind me.

:04:34.:04:38.

They hope to keep the momentum going in this campaign. They will

:04:38.:04:42.

have the ear of Mr Cameron, potentially the of the defence

:04:43.:04:46.

secretary, Liam Fox. They want government intervention to save

:04:46.:04:50.

these jobs. At night time cycle ride across the

:04:50.:04:54.

Pennines needs planning and preparation. These BAE workers are

:04:54.:05:01.

stocking up on energy bars and spare tyres. They also preparing

:05:01.:05:06.

for a One 2 One audience with the Prime Minister. We want to ask the

:05:06.:05:12.

question regarding the future of our jobs. Is all lost at BAE? Can

:05:12.:05:18.

anything be done? Can Mr Cameron speak to the management to stop

:05:18.:05:21.

what is happening? It has been a week since this work force was

:05:21.:05:27.

officially told BAE intends to end aircraft manufacture at the site in

:05:27.:05:33.

Brough. A campaign to save jobs here has been energetic. This

:05:33.:05:38.

burgeoning online petition needs 100,000 signatures to force a

:05:38.:05:44.

parliamentary debate. Local MPs asking BAE to open its books and

:05:44.:05:48.

justified 900 job losses. We have heard the reasoning behind this. We

:05:48.:05:53.

hope to see the business plan later this week. A lot more questions

:05:53.:06:00.

have been raised. We will go back to BAE and the unions. We will say,

:06:00.:06:05.

what about this? And what can we do to change it? Their message

:06:05.:06:08.

ultimately to the Prime Minister will be simple, that the government

:06:08.:06:16.

needs to do all in its power to keep jobs at BAE in Brough.

:06:16.:06:20.

A windy evening for a cycle across the Pennines, but they are very

:06:20.:06:29.

determined. Let's talk to him so debate. -- let's talked to Ian so

:06:29.:06:36.

there be. I am devastated by the announcement last week. Hopefully,

:06:36.:06:39.

this will raise the awareness of what is going on and have an impact

:06:39.:06:49.

with the government. What can they do, realistically? This was a

:06:49.:06:55.

commercial decision. Hopefully, it can raise awareness and put our

:06:55.:07:01.

point cross. We can try and get them to change their minds. Sarah,

:07:01.:07:05.

aged you're one of 900 families facing up to this news. What impact

:07:05.:07:10.

will it have on family life? will have a huge impact on family

:07:10.:07:15.

life. There are a lot of people were both husband and wife work at

:07:15.:07:19.

the site. It is a big worry. You cannot plan, your life is on hold

:07:19.:07:24.

until you know what is happening. My husband wants to work here at

:07:24.:07:28.

the plant. He loves his work. It would be a shame if they lost the

:07:28.:07:33.

skills that are here. Thank you both. Good luck on your hundred

:07:33.:07:39.

mile plus cycle ride. It used in the next 20 minutes or so. We will

:07:39.:07:42.

hopefully sure the departure of the cyclists.

:07:42.:07:46.

The thank you. Some more news now. A fellow prisoner has admitted

:07:46.:07:50.

trying to kill Soham murderer Ian Huntley. Damien Fowkes pleaded

:07:50.:07:53.

guilty at Hull Crown Court to slashing Huntley's throat in March

:07:53.:07:56.

last year. He also admitted the manslaughter of child killer Colin

:07:56.:08:02.

Hatch, who was strangled at Full Sutton Prison near York in February.

:08:02.:08:05.

Rare medieval glass at Howden Minster has ben destroyed by

:08:05.:08:11.

thieves. This window had just been restored at a cost of �6,000 when

:08:11.:08:14.

thieves smashed it to steal �20 in change and half a bottle of

:08:15.:08:23.

communion wine. Weird up fragments of medieval glass. They were put

:08:23.:08:28.

together in the window so people could see them. Medieval glass is

:08:28.:08:34.

quite rare, needless to say. It's devastating that this damage has

:08:34.:08:43.

been done. Most of know that a blue flag is

:08:43.:08:46.

given to clean beaches, but now Hull and Lincoln are both bidding

:08:46.:08:49.

for a purple flag. They're given in recognition of good nightlife. Only

:08:49.:08:52.

14 towns and cities in the UK have achieved purple flag status. It

:08:52.:08:55.

celebrates places which offer a "better night out" for everyone,

:08:55.:08:58.

not just young people. And the aim is to raise standards and broaden

:08:58.:09:02.

the appeal of town and city centres at night. Jake Zuckerman reports

:09:02.:09:08.

from Lincoln. If this is the image you have of an

:09:08.:09:12.

evening out in Lincoln, city centre managers want you to think again.

:09:12.:09:15.

They're keen to present a more diverse picture of the

:09:15.:09:23.

entertainment on offer, like restaurants and theatres. It's part

:09:23.:09:33.
:09:33.:09:35.

of their bid for a purple flag award. It is supposed to show that

:09:36.:09:39.

his city has a good night like that is saved, with a range of

:09:39.:09:48.

attractions. People believe it is not as safe as it actually is. It

:09:48.:09:55.

And it's not difficult to find evidence of that image problem if

:09:55.:10:01.

you speak to people in Lincoln. Come night time, when drinking

:10:01.:10:06.

stout, misbehaviour comes with it. Are would not like to be out of my

:10:06.:10:10.

own. A I imagine it is busy. The volunteer group Street Pastors

:10:10.:10:12.

have been patrolling the city centre for four years now, offering

:10:13.:10:15.

help to revellers. The group's coordinator says it's safer than

:10:15.:10:25.
:10:25.:10:27.

some people think. People often say, I cannot do what you do more why

:10:27.:10:33.

not? There are a lot of light, bright jackets. We have 41 street

:10:33.:10:38.

pastors, and nobody has ever felt unsafe. 14 other towns and cities

:10:38.:10:45.

already have a purple flat, including Manchester and Bristol.

:10:45.:10:48.

As well as Lincoln, Hull is also applying for a purple flag award.

:10:48.:10:51.

But it'll be some time before either city finds out if they've

:10:51.:10:54.

been successful. And this is another you might want

:10:54.:10:58.

to have your say on. Should Lincoln and Hull be given a flag for the

:10:58.:11:08.

quality of their nightlife? Do you feel safe in these cities? There's

:11:08.:11:10.

the text and email details for you now.

:11:10.:11:16.

Still ahead tonight: The meals-on- wheels service in Lincolnshire

:11:16.:11:19.

taking its inspiration from TV chefs The Hairy Bikers.

:11:19.:11:21.

And 2,000 years of history, crystallised in an ancient salt-

:11:21.:11:31.
:11:31.:11:35.

making site in Lincolnshire. Chris Moran took this of Sewerby

:11:35.:11:45.
:11:45.:11:46.

Park in East Yorkshire. If you have a picture you're proud of, send it

:11:46.:11:56.
:11:56.:11:56.

in. We will have another one I have an e-mail from somebody

:11:56.:12:01.

saying yuan on the cover of a glossy magazine. She said they only

:12:01.:12:05.

needed to use the colours orange and grey. We would all like to know

:12:05.:12:12.

which magazine! Plane spotters? It is getting a bit tired now.

:12:12.:12:19.

I hope you were fully closed. I was almost photographed with some

:12:19.:12:24.

sprout. Beverley! It is milder and windy.

:12:24.:12:29.

There will be a bit of patchy rain, chiefly first and into tomorrow

:12:29.:12:39.
:12:39.:12:42.

evening. Today, we had 17 at Coningsby. Yesterday, 28. Tomorrow,

:12:42.:12:48.

21 is possible. Behind these cold fronts on Thursday, it might be 14.

:12:48.:12:54.

Temperatures all over the place at the moment. It is changeable. It

:12:54.:12:58.

has felt chilly today across all parts of East Yorkshire and

:12:58.:13:01.

Lincolnshire. At least it has been dry. I think what will happen

:13:01.:13:06.

overnight is the cloud will thicken. It could be enough to produce the

:13:06.:13:10.

odd spot of rain or drizzle. It is predominantly dry, that is the

:13:10.:13:19.

headline, with lowest temperatures down to 12. The sun will rise at

:13:19.:13:28.

7:10am, sitting at 628 Pom. -- setting at 6:28pm. A fairly cloudy

:13:28.:13:32.

start in places. Perhaps the odd spot of drizzle, but otherwise it

:13:32.:13:37.

is dry. The strong south-westerly wind will break the cloud up to

:13:37.:13:42.

some extent. Towards tomorrow evening, rain will threaten from

:13:42.:13:50.

the north. We are looking at take them -- we are looking at a mainly

:13:50.:14:00.
:14:00.:14:01.

dry day. And milder than today. Thursday, much colder with

:14:01.:14:11.
:14:11.:14:18.

scattered showers. Mostly dry on See you tomorrow.

:14:18.:14:23.

It was set up during the war to give the vulnerable one decent meal

:14:23.:14:28.

a day. The rising costs means the meals-on-wheels service in many of

:14:28.:14:33.

our council areas is being threatened with closure. Now a

:14:33.:14:37.

small Lincolnshire company is bucking the trend and is providing

:14:37.:14:42.

hundreds of hot dinners every week. Vicky Johnson has been to the new

:14:42.:14:52.

kitchen to find out more. Peat used to have frozen meals

:14:52.:14:56.

delivered to his home in Spalding once a fortnight but now a new

:14:56.:15:02.

company delivers a freshly made hot dinner every day. Sometimes I can't

:15:02.:15:09.

eat all of it because I get too much. With fees frozen ones, you

:15:09.:15:17.

want something else after. This business evolved from making

:15:17.:15:22.

dinners for a few friends. Now she has moved to more premises in

:15:22.:15:28.

Holbeach. All our products are sourced from local farmers and the

:15:28.:15:35.

meat comes fresh from the abattoir. It is called fresh in the morning.

:15:35.:15:38.

The meals-on-wheels service started during the Blitz to feed those who

:15:38.:15:43.

had lost their homes. The food is cooked in a central kitchen and

:15:43.:15:48.

packed for the road. Over the years, many local authorities have stopped

:15:48.:15:55.

providing hot meals and it is this postcode lottery approach that has

:15:55.:16:02.

led to the Hairy Bikers campaign to revive the service. Good morning.

:16:02.:16:06.

We offer a service that offers personal interaction and dignity

:16:06.:16:12.

and some decent food. It is what we should all do. While they are

:16:12.:16:16.

calling for more volunteers to help, Kelly's business is thriving

:16:16.:16:21.

without. The team currently prepared 150 meals a day for

:16:21.:16:25.

customers as far away as Boston, King's Lynn and Spalding. At his --

:16:25.:16:32.

as demand grows, they will extend their area of coverage. Kelly's

:16:32.:16:35.

customers are in no doubt that the personal service is just as

:16:35.:16:41.

important as the food. I always enjoyed the meals. The best part of

:16:41.:16:46.

it is, when Kelly comes in it in the morning, it is like a ray of

:16:46.:16:51.

sunshine. Kelly is proving that getting back to basics can be good

:16:51.:16:59.

for business and for vulnerable people in our local communities.

:16:59.:17:03.

A boxer from Hull has become the first person from our area to

:17:03.:17:08.

qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games. Luke Campbell trains at St Paul's

:17:08.:17:11.

club in the City and has gained automatic entry into the Olympic

:17:11.:17:17.

Games after a win at the World Amateur Boxing Championships.

:17:17.:17:20.

We will be following him over the next few months.

:17:20.:17:25.

Hull Kingston Rovers new coach has been unveiled today. Craig

:17:25.:17:29.

Sandercock has joined from the Australian team, Newcastle Knights,

:17:29.:17:36.

on a two-year contract. He is replacing Justin Morgan.

:17:36.:17:43.

There is some very good players here. It is all about consistency

:17:43.:17:48.

and trying to get those players to play consistency. It is just a

:17:48.:17:55.

matter of concentrating and playing good football. What we be bringing

:17:55.:18:01.

into the squad? There are a few a salary cap issues that we need to

:18:01.:18:11.
:18:11.:18:23.

look at. The Fans Forum is live on In football, the Grimsby Town

:18:23.:18:27.

Supporters Trust has accepted a gift of half a million shares in

:18:27.:18:32.

the club. The offer was made by the former vice chairman, Mike Parker.

:18:33.:18:42.

It means the fans control the balance of power.

:18:42.:18:46.

Relegation to the conference 18 months ago marked the end of 100

:18:46.:18:49.

years and the Football League for the Mariners. After a shaky start

:18:49.:18:54.

to this year's campaign, followed by the resignation of John Fenty as

:18:54.:18:58.

chairman last month, fans are hoping their new stake in the club

:18:58.:19:05.

and marks a new interior -- era. This is a golden opportunity for

:19:05.:19:09.

them to flourish. Hopefully they will be of benefit to this club.

:19:09.:19:13.

The gift of half-a-million shares from a leading shareholder, Mike

:19:14.:19:17.

Parker, to the Supporters' Trust, means the fans now hold the balance

:19:17.:19:23.

of power at the club. We are right at the bottom of everything so

:19:23.:19:29.

let's hope they will pull us round a bit. It it spelling the ultimate

:19:29.:19:35.

doom for the club. It is an advantage in every way. Many clubs

:19:35.:19:39.

are struggling to survive on gate receipts -- receipts and commercial

:19:39.:19:44.

activity. Supporters' group up-and- down the country are proving there

:19:44.:19:50.

is an alternative way of running the game. Into a 1002, fans set up

:19:50.:19:53.

AFC Wimbledon from scratch. They have been promoted five times in

:19:53.:19:59.

nine seasons. It doesn't always work so well. With a 25% stake in

:19:59.:20:04.

Lincoln City, supporters failed to stop them plummeting out of the

:20:04.:20:10.

Football League. They may be a football fan at 3 o'clock on a

:20:10.:20:16.

Saturday, but on Monday, they can be a commercial lawyer. It is about

:20:16.:20:21.

tapping into them. With no place on the board, the test is whether they

:20:21.:20:29.

have enough power to turn the club's fortunes around.

:20:29.:20:33.

I spoke to Erik Samuelson, the chief executive of the organisation

:20:33.:20:36.

which runs Wimbledon Football Club and asked him what the fans

:20:36.:20:42.

involvement in the club will mean. They have agreed to accept the

:20:42.:20:46.

offer made by a bomb of the directors to hand over shares. It

:20:46.:20:54.

would give them a significant influence. It is a major decision.

:20:54.:20:58.

They have to choose the right moment on which to take an

:20:58.:21:02.

involvement. They have to think about what they are trying to

:21:02.:21:06.

achieve. We created our own club and are the owners of it. In this

:21:06.:21:11.

case, they are a minority and therefore they will be in a

:21:11.:21:15.

difficult position. I have been given thought about what I want out

:21:15.:21:20.

of this, what can we delivered to the board? And facing be difficult

:21:20.:21:25.

issues that they will have to think about, like, you will have to be

:21:25.:21:29.

seen by crossing the fence and he would be able to talk about some of

:21:29.:21:35.

the decisions being made. Ken you maintain a relationship? It is a

:21:35.:21:40.

difficult thought process. -- Can you maintain a relationship?

:21:40.:21:47.

you no longer just a fan? Deep down, I am still a fan. One has to think

:21:47.:21:52.

about the greater good of the club. Sometimes he would be acting in

:21:52.:21:57.

what some fans think is not in their best interests. You are

:21:57.:22:02.

balancing things, trying to make a football business success for so

:22:02.:22:07.

you can spend as much as you can on making the team it successful. That

:22:07.:22:12.

doesn't always harmonise with what the fans want. Best advice to

:22:12.:22:19.

Grimsby fans now? Think it through, exactly what do you want from us?

:22:19.:22:24.

What have you got to offer? Who is the best person to put on the board

:22:25.:22:32.

and was skills will they bring? Very good to talk to you. Thank you.

:22:32.:22:36.

Despite a call and five days, BBC Lincolnshire's Big Cycle Challenge

:22:36.:22:40.

team are bridging the Hook of Holland. It is the latest leg of

:22:40.:22:47.

their 600 miles cycling from Germany to Lincoln. They are

:22:47.:22:51.

attempting to ride to raise thousands of pounds for BBC

:22:51.:22:56.

children In Need. Yesterday was a really tough day. 11 hours in the

:22:56.:23:00.

saddle. It was dark and we were still going to hours later before

:23:00.:23:07.

:25:03.:25:10.

interesting may be hidden. I am a student for time. This started off

:25:10.:25:17.
