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

:00:04.:00:07.

This man was killed two years ago - police say they are still committed

:00:07.:00:13.

to finding Alan Wood's murderer. A decision will be made tonight on

:00:13.:00:23.
:00:23.:00:24.

Lincoln's first mosque. Humber industries rely on the trade

:00:24.:00:26.

links, now Parliament debates whether we should leave the

:00:26.:00:31.

European Union. And meeting the people who are

:00:31.:00:41.
:00:41.:00:45.

trying to preserve the local lingo. For the dialect is from a Lound.

:00:45.:00:50.

But I will have the forecast. It has been bright and breezy. To find

:00:50.:01:00.

out what is in store, join me later in the programme.

:01:00.:01:04.

Good evening. He was brutally tortured and murdered in his home

:01:04.:01:11.

in a quiet Lincolnshire village. Two years after the killing of Alan

:01:11.:01:15.

Wood, police have issued a new appeal for information as they

:01:15.:01:19.

continue the hunt for his killers. During the two-year inquiry,

:01:20.:01:25.

officers have investigated 16,000 possible suspects and examined

:01:25.:01:29.

3,000 pieces of evidence. In a moment, we will hear from the

:01:29.:01:33.

detective in charge of the inquiry. First, Jake Zuckerman has this

:01:33.:01:36.

report. Described as gentle, kind and well-

:01:36.:01:42.

liked, it is two years since a 50- year-old Alan Wood was murdered in

:01:42.:01:50.

a horrific attack at his home in the tiny village of Lound Amir

:01:50.:01:55.

Bourne. -- near Bourne. An attempt was made to decapitate him. They

:01:55.:01:59.

have done this horrific thing and they are just walking around and

:01:59.:02:05.

what else are they going to do? They cannot have come to do this to

:02:05.:02:11.

Alan without having done something before. They will do it again.

:02:11.:02:16.

Police released CCTV pictures that show a suspect using a Mr Wood's

:02:16.:02:20.

credit cards to withdraw money in Stamford and Bourne. Despite an

:02:20.:02:28.

appeal on Crimewatch, the case remains unsolved. At the incident

:02:28.:02:32.

room in Sleaford, detectives continued to work full-time on the

:02:32.:02:37.

investigation. They have collected more than 3,000 pieces of evidence

:02:37.:02:42.

and investigated 16,000 possible suspects, both in the UK and abroad.

:02:42.:02:46.

This is one of the biggest investigations that we have ever

:02:46.:02:52.

carried out. Thousands and thousands of staff hours have been

:02:52.:02:58.

used. We have log to the details of more than 16,000 people. It has

:02:58.:03:02.

been a huge investigation. Although two years have passed since the

:03:02.:03:07.

mutilated body of Alan Wood was discovered here at the small

:03:07.:03:11.

bungalow where he was living, police say they are still just as

:03:11.:03:15.

determined as ever to catch his killer and so on the second

:03:15.:03:19.

anniversary of Mr Wood's murder, they are making a further appeal to

:03:19.:03:25.

the public for help. A high I miss Allen. If I needed him, he was

:03:25.:03:35.

there. -- I miss him. He came to check I was OK. Police are urging

:03:35.:03:39.

anyone who may have information about Alan Wood's murder to contact

:03:39.:03:48.

them. They are adamant the case remains very much open.

:03:48.:03:53.

As we saw, detectives -- Detective Superintendent Stuart Morrison is

:03:53.:03:57.

leading to the investigation. I asked him how the case has

:03:57.:04:01.

progressed over the last two years. This is a very interesting

:04:01.:04:05.

investigation. After two years of work, thousands of hours of work,

:04:05.:04:12.

we have so much information, a DNA profile, CCTV, what we do not have

:04:12.:04:16.

is the last piece of the puzzle that would take us to a final

:04:16.:04:20.

result. It is surprising if you have DNA and CCTV that you are not

:04:20.:04:29.

further on. It is. One of the most perplexing elements is the DNA

:04:29.:04:34.

profile we have, there is no trace of that in the UK database. We are

:04:34.:04:39.

checking that in 49 other countries around the world. Do you have any

:04:39.:04:45.

idea of the motive of the this killing? The motive is still

:04:45.:04:50.

something we keep an open mind on. At some stage during the events,

:04:50.:04:55.

there was a decision to take money from Alan. His cash cards were

:04:55.:04:59.

taken, money from his account. What I cannot say with certainty for is

:04:59.:05:04.

what took people there in the first place. He had no connections with

:05:04.:05:09.

those people. This is very much an ongoing investigation. There is a

:05:09.:05:15.

reward. How confident I do you will catch the killer or killers? How

:05:15.:05:22.

confident are you. We still have �60,000 on offer as a reward. It

:05:22.:05:28.

has been very challenging. Two years is a long time. We have every

:05:28.:05:33.

confidence we will catch the people involved. Alan Wood's family know

:05:33.:05:39.

that. How can the public help? would like the public to revisit

:05:39.:05:43.

our forced website, look at the CCTV, look at all the information

:05:43.:05:49.

we have provided, in particular the image of ATM Amman and if they have

:05:49.:05:53.

any suspicion they know who that person might be, to bring us. We

:05:53.:06:01.

can eliminate people easily. Thank you. -- to bring us.

:06:02.:06:09.

Lincoln City reveal their new manager at Sincil Bank.

:06:09.:06:15.

BAE Systems is being prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive for

:06:15.:06:18.

failing to ensure the welfare of its staff. It follows an

:06:18.:06:22.

investigation into the death of Gary Whiting three years ago. The

:06:22.:06:26.

51-year-old died after becoming trapped in machinery at BAE Systems

:06:26.:06:30.

factory. He had worked for the company for 20 years.

:06:30.:06:33.

Major roadworks started in Lincoln this morning. Part of the A15,

:06:33.:06:35.

Lindum Hill, is closed southbound for emergency repairs. Drivers

:06:35.:06:39.

trying to get into the city will face diversions - the work is due

:06:39.:06:41.

to continue for the rest of the week.

:06:41.:06:44.

Businesses in the centre of Hull are voting today whether to keep

:06:44.:06:48.

the city's Business Improvement District. They all pay a levy

:06:48.:06:51.

towards Hull BID, which aims to put on events and attract more visitors

:06:51.:06:55.

to the city centre. But recently, some managers have been calling for

:06:55.:07:05.

it to be scrapped. A decision over whether Lincoln's

:07:05.:07:09.

first mosque can be built is expected shortly. At the moment,

:07:09.:07:13.

are a community centre is used for Muslim prayers. They have been

:07:13.:07:17.

calling for a proper place of worship for the last few years.

:07:17.:07:21.

Plans for a new mosque in the city have been turned down previously

:07:21.:07:25.

following traffic concerns by local residents. Our reporter has the

:07:25.:07:28.

story. Gathering to worship. Many of these

:07:28.:07:32.

Muslims will be hoping after today if they will get permission to

:07:32.:07:36.

build their own mosque rather than cramming into the Lincoln

:07:36.:07:41.

grandstand. This is not a place of worship. We have to rent it. It

:07:41.:07:45.

belongs to the council. We have to have something that belongs to us.

:07:45.:07:52.

Under the plans, this will be transformed into a supermarket,

:07:52.:07:56.

mosque and car park. But the road is busy and the thought of more

:07:56.:08:00.

traffic is a big worry for some local residents. Our main concern

:08:00.:08:06.

about the whole development is traffic. No-one from the Muslim

:08:06.:08:12.

community has accused us of being anti-Muslim, and he Islam, or anti-

:08:12.:08:18.

mosque. The rate how it -- the route has not been easy. They were

:08:18.:08:23.

given approval to turn up a church into a mosque. But then it was

:08:23.:08:28.

destroyed in a fire. In October 2009, plans for a two-storey mosque

:08:28.:08:33.

were turned down by the council due to traffic issues. An appeal was

:08:33.:08:37.

launched but in 20th August 10 the Government rejected it.

:08:37.:08:43.

Muslim leaders are hoping for more success tonight. All the issues

:08:43.:08:47.

raised previously by the residents and the highway authority have been

:08:47.:08:53.

resolved. I hope it will go smoothly. Planning officers had a

:08:53.:08:57.

final look at the site of his afternoon and tonight could be

:08:57.:09:03.

their night dreams of a mosque in Lincoln are realised.

:09:03.:09:09.

The meeting has been going on for one hour. What has been happening.

:09:09.:09:13.

Around 250 people have attended tonight. At times, tensions have

:09:13.:09:17.

run high. A one point, one of the councillors were heckled by a

:09:17.:09:22.

member of the public who was told to be quiet or leave. As yet, no

:09:22.:09:26.

decision has been made. The local residents say if this plan is

:09:27.:09:30.

passed tonight, they will work to mitigate the impact on the local

:09:30.:09:34.

community in terms of traffic or the look of a supermarket. Tonight

:09:34.:09:38.

could be a cause for celebration for the local Muslim community.

:09:38.:09:43.

After years of trying, they may finally get permission for their

:09:43.:09:49.

own purpose-built mosque. Thank you. We will let you know the

:09:49.:09:57.

decision later. If you have a view, you can text in. The e-mail

:09:57.:10:05.

address... 9 out of 10 A-level students say

:10:05.:10:09.

they will still go to university from next year despite the prospect

:10:09.:10:14.

of having to pay up to �9,000 a year in new tuition fees. A survey

:10:14.:10:20.

commissioned by the BBC's Inside Out suggests a 10% of students have

:10:20.:10:28.

ruled out university because of a high cost of loans. �75,000. Is

:10:28.:10:34.

that for one person? Yes. That is horrible. Is that just for the

:10:34.:10:41.

average degree? That is if you take out the maximum loan. But what if

:10:41.:10:45.

for some reason careers don't go as planned and may never earned more

:10:46.:10:51.

than �21,000 a year? -- and they never learn. The amount you have to

:10:51.:11:00.

pay back is zero. You can see more on that on tonight's Inside Out on

:11:00.:11:06.

BBC One at 7:30pm. Still ahead tonight:

:11:06.:11:11.

The last gasp goal which gave Hull City a 3-2 victory over Watford.

:11:11.:11:13.

The people who are celebrating centuries-old dialect in

:11:13.:11:23.
:11:23.:11:33.

Tonight's photograph is of dawn over East Park in Hull, it was

:11:33.:11:39.

taken by Terry Wilde. Thank you for taken by Terry Wilde. Thank you for

:11:39.:11:49.
:11:49.:11:54.

that. Smite favourite text of the weekend. Lisa Gallagher is like...

:11:54.:12:01.

I was nice to you! I am sure there will be plenty more to come over

:12:01.:12:07.

this week. Today has been nice, windy towards the coast. And

:12:07.:12:12.

tomorrow starts of damp and breezy, but conditions will improve. You

:12:12.:12:16.

can see we have this weather front that will cross over us tonight,

:12:16.:12:21.

that will bring some rain. But it will clear a way into the North

:12:21.:12:27.

East. The satellite picture from earlier shows we have had plenty of

:12:27.:12:31.

sunshine. Cloud will gradually increase from the South West. There

:12:31.:12:35.

will be clear spells, through the night, but cloud will increase and

:12:35.:12:41.

rain will push its way towards the east. The wind will stay strong and

:12:41.:12:47.

gusty through the night. Or the coast, around 25 to make the 50

:12:47.:12:53.

miles per hour, temperatures down to 12 degrees Celsius. The sun

:12:53.:13:03.
:13:03.:13:03.

rises tomorrow at 7:48am, setting at 5:42pm. Tomorrow, it will be a

:13:03.:13:07.

damp start today, some heavy bursts of rain across the Yorkshire Wolds.

:13:08.:13:12.

But it will clear right to the North Sea. The rest of the day will

:13:12.:13:16.

be dry. The cloud will break at times to give us some bright or

:13:16.:13:22.

sunny spells. Today -- like today, the best of the weather will be in

:13:22.:13:27.

the afternoon. Temperatures average, 13 or 14 degrees Celsius for most

:13:27.:13:36.

of us. Perhaps 15 degrees at best. Wednesday may start with some

:13:36.:13:41.

showers towards the coast, but they will die away. The rest of the day

:13:41.:13:44.

will be dry with sunshine. will be dry with sunshine.

:13:44.:13:48.

Temperatures of around 17 -- 13 degrees Celsius. You realise our I

:13:48.:13:54.

will get a lot of hate mail for calling you the smiling assassin!

:13:54.:13:59.

Nice to have tea with us this week. A Hull businessman has said that

:13:59.:14:04.

Europe provides half of his turnover, and pulling out of the EU

:14:04.:14:09.

could have serious repercussions. He runs a haulage firm in this city.

:14:09.:14:14.

His comments come as MPs prepared to vote of whether a referendum

:14:14.:14:20.

should be held on the issue of the UK being part of Euros. Six of our

:14:20.:14:26.

local MPs are expected to rebel against the government.

:14:26.:14:30.

It is known as the gateway to Europe, providing valuable links

:14:30.:14:36.

for the area's trade and business. In Hull, this haulage firm says

:14:36.:14:41.

work in your it is crucial for its survival. 50 % of its business that

:14:41.:14:46.

happens abroad. This lorry is heading for Rome. If we were to

:14:46.:14:51.

pull out, the goods that we are currently bringing in from Europe

:14:51.:14:54.

would become so expensive that and customers might source them from

:14:54.:15:00.

further afield, from the Far East. And our own business would suffer.

:15:00.:15:04.

A referendum would be the first vote on Europe since Harold

:15:04.:15:09.

Wilson's referendum on entering the Common Market. It means people

:15:09.:15:14.

under 54 have never had their say on Europe. So in 2011, how would

:15:14.:15:20.

triple vote in Hull? Out of it, definitely out of it. It is

:15:20.:15:26.

draining us of money. It is a global environment. As long as we

:15:26.:15:31.

keep a way of the euro. I think it takes money out of things we could

:15:31.:15:36.

be spending it on. But over the years, our area has seen benefits

:15:36.:15:43.

from you at. After the floods in 2007, around �5 million of European

:15:43.:15:46.

funding help with plans -- flood prevention schemes in East

:15:46.:15:53.

Yorkshire. In Hull, scientists have received �400,000 for research. A

:15:53.:15:57.

�30,000 grant from year it helped create this work of art in Lincoln.

:15:57.:16:02.

For I think before any kind of strong decision to leave the EU is

:16:02.:16:08.

taken, you need to do a very clear piece of cost-benefit analysis.

:16:08.:16:13.

rebel MPs, including six from our region, will not win. But they will

:16:13.:16:17.

cause embarrassment for David Cameron. With Britain's future in

:16:17.:16:22.

Europe again causing political fall-out.

:16:22.:16:28.

The debate is later tonight. The Tory MP for Brigg and Goole Andrew

:16:28.:16:33.

Percy is one of those rebel MPs, who will be voting against their

:16:33.:16:39.

own government later tonight. I put it to him that if we pulled out of

:16:39.:16:44.

the EU, the country would lose its voice. Lose what boys? At the end

:16:44.:16:49.

of the day, we can be out for did - - out voted on policy issues in

:16:49.:16:54.

Europe anyway. We do not have a veto on everything. It is a bit

:16:54.:16:58.

backwards looking to think in terms of Europe. The future of the world

:16:58.:17:04.

economy is in countries like China, South Africa. We spoke to a haulage

:17:04.:17:09.

company earlier that says 50 % of business depends on Europe. We are

:17:09.:17:13.

not going to suddenly, we would not suddenly stop selling and buying

:17:13.:17:19.

goods from Europe. We could have a free trade agreement. It is in

:17:19.:17:22.

their interest to do that, we import more than we export. So it

:17:22.:17:26.

is this idea, the scare tactics, that suddenly the barricades would

:17:26.:17:31.

come up and no one would trade with Europe again, is nonsense.

:17:31.:17:36.

three of our party leaders, they are intelligent gentleman. By a

:17:36.:17:41.

misguided? The problem, certainly in terms of Nick Clegg and Ed

:17:41.:17:45.

Miliband, they are Europe fanatics. That is why they are in the parties

:17:45.:17:50.

they are in. David Cameron is a Euro-sceptic, but he is in

:17:50.:17:52.

coalition with the Liberal Democrats and has to think in terms

:17:52.:18:00.

of that. You are a rebel. You are defying this three line would. It

:18:00.:18:05.

is not exactly career enhancing for you. Probably not, but at the end

:18:05.:18:10.

of the day as I have always said, I have always said I would be

:18:10.:18:14.

independent-minded. I think my constituents would welcome this

:18:14.:18:18.

referendum. I have had hundreds of then e-mail me. Maybe you are

:18:18.:18:22.

playing to the gallery rather than thinking about the bigger picture.

:18:22.:18:25.

If that means doing what the people who put me into Parliament want me

:18:25.:18:30.

to do, I will continue to do it. What will happen tonight? I think

:18:30.:18:35.

the motion will be defeated. Because the Labour Party have quit

:18:35.:18:40.

to their members, so there's -- have the Conservatives and liberals.

:18:40.:18:45.

There will be some Labour members he will defy their right. But we

:18:45.:18:53.

will lay down a marker. It could be anything up to 100 MPs. Willing to

:18:53.:19:00.

put their name down as demanding a referendum. Thank you very much.

:19:00.:19:04.

What do you think you Mac do you think we should be able to have our

:19:04.:19:08.

say on whether we stay in Europe or not? Maybe you are a business who

:19:08.:19:14.

has benefited from being part of the EU over the years. Did you vote

:19:14.:19:20.

back in the 1970s? Do you stand by your decision? Should we have a

:19:20.:19:30.
:19:30.:19:42.

your decision? Should we have a Thank you for the comments about

:19:42.:19:46.

the Lincoln school spending almost �2 million on luxury accommodation

:19:46.:19:51.

in France. The Priory Academy has bought the converted farmhouse in

:19:51.:19:56.

Normandy for students and teachers. It says it has budgeted well and

:19:56.:20:00.

should not be penalised for reinvesting the money.

:20:00.:20:07.

There was a mixed response to this. Jenny sent his text, two-tier

:20:07.:20:10.

Jenny sent his text, two-tier schooling appears to be the norm.

:20:10.:20:13.

We have money for posh schools and poor countries. But when it comes

:20:13.:20:23.
:20:23.:20:44.

to helping poor schools, it seems Thank you for all of those. Let's

:20:44.:20:51.

move on to football. Lincoln City have announced their new manager.

:20:51.:20:56.

David Holdsworth, not the biggest name in the world. The 5th manager

:20:56.:21:00.

at Lincoln City in five years. But he knows the leak. Lincoln confirm

:21:00.:21:04.

today that he will take charge of the impasse on a contract at any

:21:04.:21:08.

runs to the end of the current season. The former Watford and

:21:08.:21:12.

Sheffield United defender was in charge at Mansfield Town until his

:21:12.:21:16.

departure one year ago. His experience at that level was a key

:21:16.:21:20.

factor in Lincoln City appointing him.

:21:20.:21:26.

And with Hull City, a fantastic last minute when, wasn't it? Some

:21:26.:21:32.

people had already run for the Arts!

:21:32.:21:40.

-- the bus. Robert Koren's strike four minutes

:21:40.:21:44.

into injury time stretched their unbeaten run to eight lead rein --

:21:44.:21:50.

games. In League One, Scunthorpe United earned a useful point at MK

:21:50.:21:56.

Dons. Simon Clark has the round-up. There had been some epic encounters

:21:56.:22:02.

between Hull City and Watford over the years. The Tigers only Wembley

:22:02.:22:06.

experience was at Watford's expense. What for scored first, an own goal

:22:07.:22:11.

from James Chester. But City would not healed, and Matty Fryatt

:22:11.:22:17.

equalised. Five minutes later, the dangerous Chris Iwelumo put the

:22:17.:22:22.

Hertfordshire team back in front. But not for long. As sweet strike

:22:22.:22:24.

But not for long. As sweet strike from Alan Maclean made it 2-2. And

:22:24.:22:28.

that is how the match looked destined to stay, until deep into

:22:28.:22:38.
:22:38.:22:42.

That put City just outside, with a game in hand on most of their

:22:42.:22:48.

rivals. The margins are small, and the players get an awful lot of

:22:48.:22:52.

credit for how they have gone about really changing the fortunes this

LOCAL DIALECT National Dialect Day in Louth. But if you understand

:24:48.:24:54.

this lot, you are one of a dwindling breed. Ancient tongues,

:24:54.:24:59.

which were three or 400 years ago. The speech of not just the common

:24:59.:25:05.

folk but all the folk of England. And over the centuries, it has been
