The ALF. Welcome to Tuesday's Look North. -- hello. Calls for a cull
as road crashes with deers increase. A deer just ran out, straight
across the road, I did not see it inside -- I did not see it in time
and it hit the car. The mother left distraught by the theft of her baby
son's gravestone. The fruit that the supermarkets
used to bin it now helping families in crisis -- food.

They are an increasingly common sight in the field of East
Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, but deer are posing a danger on the
region's roads. Beer are responsible for more than 40,000
road accidents nationwide each year, and the situation has got so bad
that one group is calling for a cull of the animals.
One of major's most elegant creatures, but the menace on the
roads. The Deer Initiative, which has a role in advising the
government, says that without a cull, the deer population will grow
out of control. Dr a prey animal. There is no predator, apart from
foxes to may be taking very young deer. As a professional deerstalker,
John gets called in to kill deer for landowners. He says careful
management is needed to stop the collisions on the road. Man has to
be the apex predator, and kill them as humanely as possible. A rifle
bullet is the way to do that. It causes as little disturbance to
their heads, and is as ethical as can be. Sam is not alone in
thinking a deer cull would be wrong, even they are just two days before
her wedding, she hit a deer close to the shop where she works. He it
was terrifying. It was 9 o'clock at night, and the deer came from
nowhere, shot across the road, went on to the bonnet and its head was
at the windscreen. It was terrifying. It did not cost some
her life, but getting her cat repaired was expensive. This body
shop at Hutton Cranswick prepares many deer damaged vehicles. They
tend to be Bonnett, headlight, bumper, and if the deer flies up
you can get roof and windscreen damage. It is quite substantial
sometimes. To two or three cows end up in his body shop each week
through the winter having had collisions with the air, so now is
the time to be most vigilant. Dangerous or not, these creatures
are not, and any plan to kill them by the 1,000 will meet stiff
opposition -- these creatures are loft. - loved.# I spoke to war from
the animal rights group People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals.
-- I spoke to Mimi Bekhechi. It is a really ineffective way of dealing
with wildlife. It does not address the problem. More animals will move
in to take the place of the ones who have been killed, and they will
reproduce even more quickly. We need to look at humane ways of
dealing with any conflict. We need to address the problem. But the
deer are causing accidents, damaging crops and property. How
would you manage the population to get rid of the numbers of deer?
Successful population management programmes deal with things like
Habitat modification, humane exclusion, like putting up electric
fences or repellents in order to keep the animals are. As long as
the area is hospitable, more animals will move in, and it will
not solve the problem. Deer are involved in 42,000 accidents a year.
What do you say, for example, to the family of 15-year-old Ben
Madden who was killed when his bicycle crash into Libya in August?
I am so sorry for them. -- his bicycle crashed into a deer in
August. I would want to see a situation
where we do not see any more of these accidents. Scapegoating deer
will not resolve the situation of accidents on the road. We will not
see a reduction in the number of accidents if we do not address the
problem. There was one stretch of road that saw culling brain
operation, and accidents when from 50 in a year to none. Is that not
evidence that it will cut down on the accident? If you do not address
the environment, more animals will move them. You may see a drop in
numbers initially, but as I said, as long as that area is hospitable,
more animals will move in and the numbers will spike again. It is not
a long-term solution. Long-term solutions look at you make
repellents and putting up electric fences. This country used to be
covered in warts. As we build more roads and encroach on the space of
wildlife, we need to find humane solutions that allow us to live
together. We will never achieve ecological harmony through the
barrel of a gun. Very good to talk to you.
What do you think about this? Should DAB culled? Is it down to
motorists to take more care? -- In a moment, the counterfeit toys

A mother from Lincolnshire has described thieves who stole her
son's gravestone as heartless. Michelle Holness discovered the
memorial stone was gone after a recent visit to the church.
Lincolnshire Police are now investigating.
Dion Holness died when he was just five days old. Ever since, his
grave has been a comfort to his mother. Now, someone has stolen the
gravestone. My own I first found out, I felt very cold inside -- and
when I first found out. I was in a state of shock. I went to bed and I
woke up at 4 o'clock, and I was distraught. It's is thought thieves
targeted it because it was in the shape of a heart, and it had made
gold leaf. The local community cannot believe someone would steal
a child's gravestone. It was very shocking to hear this had happened.
When a family has been bereaved, you cannot believe anybody would do
something to give them more pain. It is not the first time a
graveyard has been targeted by vandals. A few years ago Withernsea,
hundreds of headstones and ornaments were damaged, and there
was a similar incident in Scunthorpe, where maybe 150
headstones where tack. In May, several momentos went missing from
graves in Hull. Crimes like this are usually extremely difficult to
investigate, so the police are appealing to the local community to
help them solve this. Michelle and her family just want whoever took
this to give it back. It is sentimental. It is my special place.
Michelle Holness ending that report. The Foreign Office has confirmed
that a pilot from Hull has been killed in an air crash in southern
Africa. The plane had been taking off from a remote airstrip in
Botswana's Okavango Delta on Friday when it burst into flames. Martin
Creswell was among eight people killed in the accident -- Martin
Gresswell. Crispin Rolfe can tell us more.
Martin Gresswell was employed by the plane company Moremi Air, for
whom he flew tourist charters. The company described him as their most
experienced pilot, with more than 12,000 hours of flying under his
belt. According to social media site, he had said that the British
Army before flying for the UN in Somalia and Sudan. He leaves behind
him a wife and daughter. It follows the crash on Friday in which the
Cessna 208 he was flying burst into flames just after take-off. The
flight had been leaving from a remote airfield at a site famous
for its birds and wildlife. Botswana attract thousands of
tourists to its wildlife spot. This trip went tragically wrong. It left
eight bed and just four survivors. An investigation into the crash has
begun. Thank you.

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

See you tomorrow. In Britain, we waste �12 billion worth of edible
food every year. Just some of that food will be redistributed now as
aid in Hull. Thousands of needy families in East Yorkshire could
benefit. It is good quality food that has
been discarded by the supermarkets, thrown out and wasted for often
trivial reasons. What will have happened is either they will have
been overstocked, or they may have something wrong with the packaging,
they may have a wrong back. They would have gone to landfill. Under
a new scheme, the good World Development Trust has taken charge
of this warehoused. From here, unwanted suppliers will be sent to
grips across a Hull and East Yorkshire, helping families who are
struggling to make ends meet. and egg sandwich? This cafe is one
place that may be used to distribute the food. Family say it
will make a massive difference. feed ourselves day-to-day because
that is the only way we can do it. If you're getting food for free,
that saves on all sort of resources at home that you do not have to
mess around with, like potatoes. You can do so many meals with
potatoes. As a nation, we now discard more than 5 million tonnes
of edible food every year, costing as around �12 billion. A rise in
food poverty may be changing people's habits. These have become
other charity food banks have opened in Scunthorpe and grab them,
with around 2000 people seeking help.
The latest scheme in Hull is one of the biggest so far up with 17
projects now established across the country. The situation in these
times is that people are struggling to afford basic foodstuffs.
Hopefully, this food will go out and help people. No one is going to
judge you. They can claim the food and take it away. I think it will
be such a help. You cannot put it into words. I think it really would
be a big help to people. The scheme is seeking volunteers to help -- --

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

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

the National Championships. Julie Williams has spent the last 30
years helping to run a club bringing together at Yorkshire's
top competitors. It is very rewarding. We have had people at

coaches in the clubs have taught them the skills that have got them
there. The Sports partnerships are engaged in attracting and

You have got to be over 16 years of age. But apart from that, at what
was put forward by Julie, who was in that film, was that you do not
have to be a coach. If you are a website builder or photographer,
you can help the club in that way. That is what many of these people
who are in workshops now are learning more about, to see what
skills they have. It is all about four when the Olympics have been
and gone, to make sure that the sporting heart of this community
continues to beat. It is just those people, the unsung
heroes of sports clubs, that the BBC is looking to honour. We are
asking you to nominate people for the BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire
Unsung Heroes Award. Last year you chose a Julie Norman who runs the
Acorn Judo Club in Lincolnshire. It was an unbelievable on her. It
was a surprise because I come here every week to enjoy teaching the
children. Parents are really good and they are proud of what we do.

At bit years of giving everyone else advice, it Sarah Beeny is in
trouble with the council over her restoration project. She should
have had permission in place. Earlier I asked Sarah Beeny if she
thought that restoring Rise Hall had been a straightforward
experience. No, it is a big old building to
take on and it is very much at risk. The biggest struggle for it was to
find it a purpose for existing. Our generation isn't here for that long
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
think, I will let it fall down? Yes! There are days when I think,
what is the point? Swimming against the tide, that is how I feel. Then
there are other days when amazing things happen. For instance, we
discover something amazing in the house all we find some history that
is exciting, and we need someone who used to work at the house. Then
you see when you have lots of contract as an they are doing
things, you see the house come alive with people and then you
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

is wonderful. Tonight, I probably would! Baby on Christmas Eve when
we are opening hour stockings, then maybe I would be less tempted. It
