The ALF. Welcome to Tuesday's Look North. -- hello. Calls for a cull

:00:10.:00:15.

as road crashes with deers increase. A deer just ran out, straight

:00:15.:00:19.

across the road, I did not see it inside -- I did not see it in time

:00:20.:00:24.

and it hit the car. The mother left distraught by the theft of her baby

:00:24.:00:28.

son's gravestone. The fruit that the supermarkets

:00:28.:00:34.

used to bin it now helping families in crisis -- food.

:00:34.:00:39.

Not as easy as it looks on the TV. The property guru was struggling

:00:39.:00:43.

with her money pit mansion in East Yorkshire.

:00:43.:00:53.
:00:53.:00:57.

All the latest weather details in 15 minutes.

:00:57.:01:00.

They are an increasingly common sight in the field of East

:01:00.:01:03.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, but deer are posing a danger on the

:01:04.:01:08.

region's roads. Beer are responsible for more than 40,000

:01:08.:01:12.

road accidents nationwide each year, and the situation has got so bad

:01:12.:01:19.

that one group is calling for a cull of the animals.

:01:19.:01:23.

One of major's most elegant creatures, but the menace on the

:01:23.:01:27.

roads. The Deer Initiative, which has a role in advising the

:01:27.:01:32.

government, says that without a cull, the deer population will grow

:01:32.:01:40.

out of control. Dr a prey animal. There is no predator, apart from

:01:41.:01:45.

foxes to may be taking very young deer. As a professional deerstalker,

:01:45.:01:49.

John gets called in to kill deer for landowners. He says careful

:01:49.:01:57.

management is needed to stop the collisions on the road. Man has to

:01:57.:02:03.

be the apex predator, and kill them as humanely as possible. A rifle

:02:03.:02:08.

bullet is the way to do that. It causes as little disturbance to

:02:08.:02:15.

their heads, and is as ethical as can be. Sam is not alone in

:02:15.:02:19.

thinking a deer cull would be wrong, even they are just two days before

:02:19.:02:24.

her wedding, she hit a deer close to the shop where she works. He it

:02:24.:02:29.

was terrifying. It was 9 o'clock at night, and the deer came from

:02:29.:02:35.

nowhere, shot across the road, went on to the bonnet and its head was

:02:35.:02:39.

at the windscreen. It was terrifying. It did not cost some

:02:39.:02:43.

her life, but getting her cat repaired was expensive. This body

:02:43.:02:49.

shop at Hutton Cranswick prepares many deer damaged vehicles. They

:02:49.:02:57.

tend to be Bonnett, headlight, bumper, and if the deer flies up

:02:57.:03:00.

you can get roof and windscreen damage. It is quite substantial

:03:00.:03:06.

sometimes. To two or three cows end up in his body shop each week

:03:06.:03:09.

through the winter having had collisions with the air, so now is

:03:09.:03:19.
:03:19.:03:19.

the time to be most vigilant. Dangerous or not, these creatures

:03:19.:03:24.

are not, and any plan to kill them by the 1,000 will meet stiff

:03:24.:03:34.
:03:34.:03:40.

opposition -- these creatures are loft. - loved.# I spoke to war from

:03:40.:03:42.

the animal rights group People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals.

:03:42.:03:49.

-- I spoke to Mimi Bekhechi. It is a really ineffective way of dealing

:03:50.:03:55.

with wildlife. It does not address the problem. More animals will move

:03:55.:03:58.

in to take the place of the ones who have been killed, and they will

:03:59.:04:05.

reproduce even more quickly. We need to look at humane ways of

:04:05.:04:14.

dealing with any conflict. We need to address the problem. But the

:04:14.:04:18.

deer are causing accidents, damaging crops and property. How

:04:18.:04:27.

would you manage the population to get rid of the numbers of deer?

:04:27.:04:31.

Successful population management programmes deal with things like

:04:31.:04:36.

Habitat modification, humane exclusion, like putting up electric

:04:36.:04:41.

fences or repellents in order to keep the animals are. As long as

:04:41.:04:46.

the area is hospitable, more animals will move in, and it will

:04:46.:04:50.

not solve the problem. Deer are involved in 42,000 accidents a year.

:04:50.:04:55.

What do you say, for example, to the family of 15-year-old Ben

:04:55.:05:02.

Madden who was killed when his bicycle crash into Libya in August?

:05:02.:05:07.

I am so sorry for them. -- his bicycle crashed into a deer in

:05:07.:05:12.

August. I would want to see a situation

:05:12.:05:18.

where we do not see any more of these accidents. Scapegoating deer

:05:18.:05:21.

will not resolve the situation of accidents on the road. We will not

:05:21.:05:25.

see a reduction in the number of accidents if we do not address the

:05:25.:05:32.

problem. There was one stretch of road that saw culling brain

:05:32.:05:36.

operation, and accidents when from 50 in a year to none. Is that not

:05:36.:05:43.

evidence that it will cut down on the accident? If you do not address

:05:43.:05:48.

the environment, more animals will move them. You may see a drop in

:05:48.:05:52.

numbers initially, but as I said, as long as that area is hospitable,

:05:52.:05:57.

more animals will move in and the numbers will spike again. It is not

:05:57.:06:03.

a long-term solution. Long-term solutions look at you make

:06:03.:06:07.

repellents and putting up electric fences. This country used to be

:06:07.:06:12.

covered in warts. As we build more roads and encroach on the space of

:06:12.:06:17.

wildlife, we need to find humane solutions that allow us to live

:06:17.:06:21.

together. We will never achieve ecological harmony through the

:06:21.:06:28.

barrel of a gun. Very good to talk to you.

:06:28.:06:36.

What do you think about this? Should DAB culled? Is it down to

:06:36.:06:46.
:06:46.:06:58.

motorists to take more care? -- In a moment, the counterfeit toys

:06:58.:07:05.

seized by trading standards been donated to a Christmas charity.

:07:05.:07:08.

A mother from Lincolnshire has described thieves who stole her

:07:08.:07:15.

son's gravestone as heartless. Michelle Holness discovered the

:07:15.:07:20.

memorial stone was gone after a recent visit to the church.

:07:20.:07:23.

Lincolnshire Police are now investigating.

:07:23.:07:28.

Dion Holness died when he was just five days old. Ever since, his

:07:28.:07:33.

grave has been a comfort to his mother. Now, someone has stolen the

:07:33.:07:40.

gravestone. My own I first found out, I felt very cold inside -- and

:07:40.:07:47.

when I first found out. I was in a state of shock. I went to bed and I

:07:47.:07:52.

woke up at 4 o'clock, and I was distraught. It's is thought thieves

:07:52.:07:55.

targeted it because it was in the shape of a heart, and it had made

:07:55.:07:59.

gold leaf. The local community cannot believe someone would steal

:07:59.:08:06.

a child's gravestone. It was very shocking to hear this had happened.

:08:06.:08:09.

When a family has been bereaved, you cannot believe anybody would do

:08:09.:08:13.

something to give them more pain. It is not the first time a

:08:13.:08:17.

graveyard has been targeted by vandals. A few years ago Withernsea,

:08:17.:08:21.

hundreds of headstones and ornaments were damaged, and there

:08:21.:08:25.

was a similar incident in Scunthorpe, where maybe 150

:08:25.:08:29.

headstones where tack. In May, several momentos went missing from

:08:29.:08:36.

graves in Hull. Crimes like this are usually extremely difficult to

:08:36.:08:39.

investigate, so the police are appealing to the local community to

:08:40.:08:44.

help them solve this. Michelle and her family just want whoever took

:08:44.:08:52.

this to give it back. It is sentimental. It is my special place.

:08:52.:08:58.

Michelle Holness ending that report. The Foreign Office has confirmed

:08:58.:09:03.

that a pilot from Hull has been killed in an air crash in southern

:09:03.:09:08.

Africa. The plane had been taking off from a remote airstrip in

:09:08.:09:14.

Botswana's Okavango Delta on Friday when it burst into flames. Martin

:09:14.:09:18.

Creswell was among eight people killed in the accident -- Martin

:09:18.:09:23.

Gresswell. Crispin Rolfe can tell us more.

:09:23.:09:28.

Martin Gresswell was employed by the plane company Moremi Air, for

:09:28.:09:32.

whom he flew tourist charters. The company described him as their most

:09:32.:09:36.

experienced pilot, with more than 12,000 hours of flying under his

:09:36.:09:40.

belt. According to social media site, he had said that the British

:09:40.:09:45.

Army before flying for the UN in Somalia and Sudan. He leaves behind

:09:45.:09:49.

him a wife and daughter. It follows the crash on Friday in which the

:09:49.:09:56.

Cessna 208 he was flying burst into flames just after take-off. The

:09:56.:09:59.

flight had been leaving from a remote airfield at a site famous

:09:59.:10:04.

for its birds and wildlife. Botswana attract thousands of

:10:04.:10:10.

tourists to its wildlife spot. This trip went tragically wrong. It left

:10:10.:10:14.

eight bed and just four survivors. An investigation into the crash has

:10:14.:10:17.

begun. Thank you.

The best of a toddler at a caravan park near Skegness last month was

an accident. -- the best of the toddler. 19 months old Kai Game

:10:26.:10:29.

wandered away from his family at the park and was found in the water

:10:29.:10:33.

a short time later. The deputy coroner for Louth and Spilsby, Paul

Smith, described the best as it dreadful and tragic accident. - -

the death. The East Midlands Ambulance Service

:10:47.:10:52.

has been criticised for failing to ensure all its staff have clearance

:10:52.:10:54.

from the Criminal Records Bureau. The Care Quality Commission says

:10:54.:10:57.

all frontline ambulance staff working with all the bore adults

:10:57.:11:02.

and children should have the necessary approval. -- vulnerable

which I cannot identify. Good evening, young man. -- there are

:11:41.:11:47.

some birds which I cannot identify. They look like seagulls to me. It

:11:47.:11:57.

is not rocket science, Peter. We have all got a hobby. At least

:11:57.:12:02.

they did not have a cloud set when I was four.

:12:02.:12:06.

Did you go to a jumble sale for that tie?

:12:06.:12:11.

The headline is a cold and windy one. There will be plenty of

:12:11.:12:15.

sunshine tomorrow. There will be showers across western parts of

:12:16.:12:20.

Lincolnshire in the morning. A little nudge of high pressure means

:12:20.:12:25.

was the night into Thursday will be dry, but a widespread ground frost

:12:25.:12:30.

on the cards. We have had a few showers. Temperatures have just

:12:30.:12:36.

been into double figures. It is cold out there now. Most of the

:12:36.:12:40.

showers will die away and we are looking at a dry night. Still quite

:12:40.:12:48.

windy. If you have shelter, you could have very ground frost.

:12:48.:12:56.

Temperatures generally four or five. The sun will rise at 7:36am,

:12:56.:13:06.

setting at 5:55pm. It's a lovely day across East Yorkshire. For

:13:06.:13:09.

Lincolnshire, the cloud might thicken in the morning, bringing

:13:10.:13:19.
:13:20.:13:43.

We will have a touch of frost on Thursday. Friday 8, temperatures

:13:43.:13:48.

will be back to normal. Saturday looks fine with some sunshine.

We know you have got -- gone over the top because Victoria gets a

:13:53.:14:03.
:14:03.:14:09.

See you tomorrow. In Britain, we waste �12 billion worth of edible

:14:09.:14:14.

food every year. Just some of that food will be redistributed now as

:14:14.:14:18.

aid in Hull. Thousands of needy families in East Yorkshire could

:14:18.:14:24.

benefit. It is good quality food that has

:14:24.:14:29.

been discarded by the supermarkets, thrown out and wasted for often

:14:29.:14:33.

trivial reasons. What will have happened is either they will have

:14:33.:14:36.

been overstocked, or they may have something wrong with the packaging,

:14:37.:14:43.

they may have a wrong back. They would have gone to landfill. Under

:14:43.:14:48.

a new scheme, the good World Development Trust has taken charge

:14:48.:14:52.

of this warehoused. From here, unwanted suppliers will be sent to

grips across a Hull and East Yorkshire, helping families who are

:14:56.:15:03.

struggling to make ends meet. and egg sandwich? This cafe is one

:15:03.:15:07.

place that may be used to distribute the food. Family say it

:15:07.:15:11.

will make a massive difference. feed ourselves day-to-day because

:15:11.:15:17.

that is the only way we can do it. If you're getting food for free,

:15:17.:15:21.

that saves on all sort of resources at home that you do not have to

:15:21.:15:26.

mess around with, like potatoes. You can do so many meals with

:15:26.:15:31.

potatoes. As a nation, we now discard more than 5 million tonnes

:15:31.:15:36.

of edible food every year, costing as around �12 billion. A rise in

:15:36.:15:40.

food poverty may be changing people's habits. These have become

:15:40.:15:44.

other charity food banks have opened in Scunthorpe and grab them,

:15:44.:15:48.

with around 2000 people seeking help.

:15:48.:15:53.

The latest scheme in Hull is one of the biggest so far up with 17

:15:53.:15:57.

projects now established across the country. The situation in these

:15:57.:16:01.

times is that people are struggling to afford basic foodstuffs.

:16:01.:16:06.

Hopefully, this food will go out and help people. No one is going to

:16:06.:16:11.

judge you. They can claim the food and take it away. I think it will

:16:11.:16:14.

be such a help. You cannot put it into words. I think it really would

:16:14.:16:22.

be a big help to people. The scheme is seeking volunteers to help -- --

:16:22.:16:27.

help the project to expand. It is helping thousands in poverty to

:16:28.:16:33.

feed their families. Thank you for the e-mails and text

:16:34.:16:37.

messages last night about our story on litter. The East Riding Council

:16:37.:16:41.

it is asking people to form their own groups to it start litter

:16:41.:16:45.

picking patrols. The authority says it could save hundreds of thousands

:16:45.:16:52.

of Pounds a year, with a lorry loads being collected by volunteers.

:16:52.:16:57.

What do you make of the volunteers? There are a for you here. Rebecca

:16:57.:17:00.

believes a hard working people should not have to come home from

:17:00.:17:10.
:17:10.:17:32.

You will not be surprised to know there is quite a response on that

:17:33.:17:40.

story. Thank you very much. People are being encouraged to

:17:40.:17:43.

volunteer to get involved with sport in Hull. The government idea

:17:43.:17:47.

is to have thousands more volunteers in the country by the

:17:47.:17:55.

Times -- time the Olympics finishes next year.

:17:55.:18:00.

This boy he's the best Trumper leanest in the country and is using

:18:00.:18:03.

his expert skills in the Batman life world tour. But he would not

:18:03.:18:10.

have got anywhere without a band of volunteers. This would have been at

:18:10.:18:14.

the National Championships. Julie Williams has spent the last 30

:18:14.:18:21.

years helping to run a club bringing together at Yorkshire's

:18:21.:18:30.

top competitors. It is very rewarding. We have had people at

:18:30.:18:33.

the championships have recently. You are very proud of them. Other

:18:33.:18:37.

coaches in the clubs have taught them the skills that have got them

:18:37.:18:42.

there. The Sports partnerships are engaged in attracting and

:18:42.:18:46.

volunteers who can give up to 10 hours of their time. 548 are wanted

:18:46.:18:51.

in Lincolnshire and 700 in the Humber. It is part of the Olympic -

:18:51.:18:57.

- government's Olympic legacy drive. You may want to start something

:18:57.:19:06.

from scratch. It could be that sort of new activity, or it could be

:19:06.:19:11.

people do not know what is available on their doorstep -- a

:19:11.:19:16.

doorstep. One man who knows the value of a

:19:16.:19:25.

good volunteer his Olympic and Commonwealth cycling made us...

:19:25.:19:30.

we get better as a nation, as you have said already, British Cycling

:19:30.:19:33.

grows. It is important in the future because we need to have more

:19:33.:19:37.

Olympic medallists and we will need more people in the background and

:19:37.:19:42.

the local community engaging people in sport as we get better. There

:19:42.:19:45.

isn't a sport in the country that would not benefit from unpaid help,

:19:45.:19:49.

and that is why footballers, rugby stars and basketball players are

:19:49.:19:54.

rubbing shoulders tonight. Simon is at the University of Hull

:19:55.:20:00.

Wedd this is being launched will stop can anyone get involved?

:20:00.:20:04.

You have got to be over 16 years of age. But apart from that, at what

:20:04.:20:09.

was put forward by Julie, who was in that film, was that you do not

:20:09.:20:13.

have to be a coach. If you are a website builder or photographer,

:20:13.:20:16.

you can help the club in that way. That is what many of these people

:20:16.:20:20.

who are in workshops now are learning more about, to see what

:20:20.:20:24.

skills they have. It is all about four when the Olympics have been

:20:24.:20:29.

and gone, to make sure that the sporting heart of this community

:20:29.:20:36.

continues to beat. It is just those people, the unsung

:20:36.:20:40.

heroes of sports clubs, that the BBC is looking to honour. We are

:20:40.:20:42.

asking you to nominate people for the BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:20:42.:20:46.

Unsung Heroes Award. Last year you chose a Julie Norman who runs the

:20:46.:20:52.

Acorn Judo Club in Lincolnshire. It was an unbelievable on her. It

:20:52.:21:00.

was a surprise because I come here every week to enjoy teaching the

:21:00.:21:05.

children. Parents are really good and they are proud of what we do.

:21:05.:21:15.
:21:15.:21:26.

This is how you can get involved. The competition is open now and

:21:26.:21:31.

entries will be accepted until midnight on Sunday 30th October.

:21:31.:21:35.

Lincoln City and Grimsby Town are playing in the Blue Square Premier

:21:35.:21:39.

Counterfeit toys seized by train did standards officers from a Hull

:22:01.:22:04.

City Council have been donated to a Christmas charity. Operation

:22:04.:22:09.

Christmas Child will take delivery of the toys to launch its and 2011

:22:09.:22:13.

shoebox appeal. Toys cannot be distributed in the UK and would

:22:13.:22:18.

normally go into landfill. If they don't pose a health and safety risk,

:22:18.:22:23.

they can be sent to disadvantaged children outside the European Union.

:22:23.:22:27.

The toys have trade marks on the packaging of the goods and to

:22:27.:22:31.

remove those, it would basically destroyed the Tories so they could

:22:31.:22:37.

not be given over to UK charities. -- the Tories. It is wonderful that

:22:37.:22:41.

they have been saved from the scrapheap. Who would not want a

:22:41.:22:51.

lovely cuddly toy? I have seen children playing in the streets

:22:51.:22:56.

with newspaper. Gabriel bald is a delight to them.

:22:56.:23:02.

Good luck to those involved with that operation.

They have been documented in her new TV series. I will be talking to

:23:24.:23:28.

Sarah in a moment, but he is a flavour of the programme.

:23:28.:23:32.

At bit years of giving everyone else advice, it Sarah Beeny is in

:23:32.:23:38.

trouble with the council over her restoration project. She should

:23:38.:23:45.

have had permission in place. Earlier I asked Sarah Beeny if she

:23:45.:23:48.

thought that restoring Rise Hall had been a straightforward

:23:48.:23:54.

experience. No, it is a big old building to

:23:55.:24:02.

take on and it is very much at risk. The biggest struggle for it was to

:24:02.:24:12.
:24:12.:24:12.

find it a purpose for existing. Our generation isn't here for that long

:24:12.:24:16.

and we wanted to keep it alive and that is what we have done.

their days when you are sick and tired of the whole thing and you

:24:19.:24:25.

think, I will let it fall down? Yes! There are days when I think,

:24:25.:24:30.

what is the point? Swimming against the tide, that is how I feel. Then

:24:30.:24:34.

there are other days when amazing things happen. For instance, we

:24:34.:24:38.

discover something amazing in the house all we find some history that

:24:38.:24:43.

is exciting, and we need someone who used to work at the house. Then

:24:43.:24:48.

you see when you have lots of contract as an they are doing

:24:48.:24:51.

things, you see the house come alive with people and then you

:24:51.:24:55.

think, it is worth it. We have read a lot. If someone came along with

their pockets loaded, not me, but someone very rich, which you sell

:25:01.:25:05.

at this evening? It is a love-hate relationship. One minute I think it

:25:05.:25:13.

is wonderful. Tonight, I probably would! Baby on Christmas Eve when

:25:13.:25:18.

we are opening hour stockings, then maybe I would be less tempted. It

:25:18.:25:23.

goes up and down, but at the moment I am feeling a bit weary. Don't

:25:23.:25:30.

whinge Of Me tonight! I went! still love the countryside when you

:25:30.:25:34.

are up here? It is beautiful, and it has been a privilege being able

:25:34.:25:38.

to live in East Yorkshire with the amazing people in the area. It is a

:25:38.:25:44.

secret part of the world that is very well kept. There are some

:25:44.:25:49.

amazing people that live there. have just wants a more fans there.

:25:49.:25:54.

Lovely to have you on. We will watch the programme. Had the crows

Sarah Beeny talking to me earlier. The time is 6:55pm. The headlines:

:26:14.:26:20.

:26:20.:26:25.

There are calls for a cull after an increase after the number of

:26:35.:26:38.

Top temperature tomorrow of 11 degrees. Dry and sunny.

:26:38.:26:42.

Big response coming in, thank you for them all, on the subject of the

deer. Stephen says, I nearly hit a deer on my driving test day, and it

:26:49.:26:56.

put me off for a while. Martin said, I agree to a cull. I ride him as it

-- a mite to cycle and I always look out for them. Frank says, it

:27:01.:27:05.

is not their fault, to make people drive too fast in areas where they

:27:05.:27:11.

are known to Rome. Kill speed, not the it. So the says, I completely

agree with your interviewee: Culling deer will not sell off the

:27:16.:27:22.

problem. We should lower speed limits and build fences. Joe says,
