Here are the headlines: Bereaved families criticised politicians for

:00:12.:00:15.

scrapping changes to military inquest.

:00:16.:00:20.

And the residents who will have to pay for some of their recycling.

:00:20.:00:25.

People will give up the recycling bins and fill their green Benn's

:00:26.:00:32.

instead. Why do you pay council tax anyway?

:00:33.:00:38.

The plan to return this piece of Lincolnshire history to the skies.

:00:38.:00:41.

And the 16-year-old from North Lincolnshire on the verge of

:00:41.:00:45.

superstardom. We have seen sunny skies today but

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:00:59.

it will be mostly cloudy tomorrow. The mother of a Lincolnshire

:00:59.:01:03.

soldier killed in Afghanistan has criticised a government cost-

:01:03.:01:09.

cutting measure which has abandoned changes to the way that military

:01:09.:01:13.

deaths uninvestigated. The new role of chief coroner was supposed to

:01:13.:01:17.

improve the speed and quality of inquest, which can take up to three

:01:17.:01:23.

years to be held. They cost has now been scrapped to save money. It

:01:23.:01:28.

prompted an angry response from one Tory MP.

:01:28.:01:34.

Almost five years have passed since this woman lost her son Matthew.

:01:34.:01:38.

The royal marine died in what was believed to have been a so-called

:01:38.:01:45.

friendly fire incident involving another British soldier. He was

:01:45.:01:52.

killed during an attack on a Taliban fought in Helmand Province

:01:52.:01:59.

on January -- in January, 2007. In December 2008 A coroner cake in

:01:59.:02:05.

narrative verdict, which means a cause of death without attributing

:02:05.:02:11.

blame. I think with the new chief coroner

:02:11.:02:19.

things would have been done differently.

:02:19.:02:29.
:02:29.:02:31.

Two soldiers who were killed by a broad Afghan gunmen were the

:02:31.:02:36.

subject of an inquest. A verdict of unlawful killing was returned by

:02:36.:02:40.

the coroner. There have been proposals to create

:02:40.:02:45.

a new post of chief coroner to deal with some cases. But the government

:02:45.:02:51.

has decided to scrap that idea to save money, a decision which has

:02:51.:02:55.

prompted one Tory MP to rebel against his own government for the

:02:56.:03:01.

second time in a week. There has to be someone at the top,

:03:01.:03:08.

be it a chief coroner or some other type of chief position, who is

:03:08.:03:12.

independent of ministers and can drive this reform and make sure

:03:12.:03:15.

there is accountability back to Parliament.

:03:15.:03:19.

He is supported by the Royal British Legion.

:03:19.:03:23.

At the end of the day it is quite wrong to reduce a matter of honour

:03:23.:03:31.

to a question of cost. In is so dense like Matthew's, they need a

:03:31.:03:40.

specialist person. -- been no incidents like Matthew's.

:03:40.:03:45.

There are other people who have lost sons in situations like where

:03:46.:03:55.

we lost hours. For many families, the quest for

:03:55.:04:01.

answers continues long after their loved ones have been Barnett. --

:04:01.:04:10.

Was the government right to scrap the role of chief coroner, which

:04:10.:04:17.

was designed to improve in quest for bereaved families? It was going

:04:17.:04:27.
:04:27.:04:27.

to cost a lot of money. If you want to e-mail me, the usual address.

:04:27.:04:32.

Coming up: P Hull shopkeepers opposed to an organisation that is

:04:32.:04:38.

trying to promote them. Residents in north-east

:04:38.:04:44.

Lincolnshire will have to pay to the cycle. The council wants to

:04:44.:04:50.

charge �25 per year to anyone with a prime garden waste bin. The

:04:50.:04:55.

authority currently collects 50,000 brown bins. The proposals are

:04:55.:05:01.

designed to save �2.5 million on refuse collection.

:05:01.:05:07.

There are more bins than ever to collect our waste. Brydon bairns

:05:07.:05:14.

are for clippings from our back garden. -- brown bins.

:05:14.:05:21.

Until now, brown bin collections were clear -- were free but soon

:05:21.:05:28.

bed will cost �25 per year. People will not want to pay this

:05:28.:05:34.

extra money. That is the problem. A lot of people will just boot

:05:34.:05:41.

their staff in the green then and you will get problems them. -- put

:05:41.:05:49.

their staff in the green then. If we do not find savings here, we

:05:49.:05:55.

must find them elsewhere. We have one cake and I cannot make it

:05:55.:06:01.

bigger. Those who do not want to pay can

:06:01.:06:09.

give their brown then back and that is what many will do. -- their

:06:09.:06:17.

brown bin. This woman is a keen recycler but he is sure that the

:06:17.:06:24.

charge will put people off. Every fortnight, my brown then is

:06:24.:06:30.

full to the gunwales. We have the boxes as well, will they too are

:06:30.:06:40.
:06:40.:06:42.

just for them as well? -- will they charged us?

:06:42.:06:47.

For years we have tried to encourage it. We now impose a �25

:06:47.:06:51.

charge and people will stop recycling and put the waste simply

:06:51.:06:57.

into the normal waste then and it will go to landfill. I pay council

:06:57.:07:01.

tax and I would have to pay for a brown bins. We all have to make

:07:01.:07:07.

hard decisions. Be charged to collect a bend works

:07:07.:07:17.
:07:17.:07:19.

out at 50p per week. -- the charge to collect a bin.

:07:19.:07:25.

I am sure this will be controversial for some people.

:07:25.:07:31.

Hardy council right to charge for recycling collection? -- are the

:07:31.:07:41.
:07:41.:07:54.

Some more news. Three MPs have met with managers from BAE Systems to

:07:54.:08:04.
:08:04.:08:05.

talk with them about the future of the site in a region. Nearly 900

:08:05.:08:14.

workers at the side face redundancy. Up to 57 redundancies have been

:08:14.:08:24.
:08:24.:08:24.

announced at a factory in Hull. The heating factory makes boilers. The

:08:24.:08:30.

job losses, after the decision to close the company's boundary.

:08:31.:08:33.

He 45-year-old lorry driver arrested in connection with the

:08:33.:08:42.

death of the policeman on the M1 has been released on bail. The

:08:42.:08:46.

police officer was killed when he was head by a truck as he helped a

:08:46.:08:56.
:08:56.:09:01.

woman whose car had broken down. Hull bed has the job of making the

:09:01.:09:08.

city more attractive to investors. However, some claim it is a waste

:09:08.:09:13.

of money. Our correspondent has more.

:09:13.:09:18.

This man opened this cafe in Hull City Centre on Monday. But he is

:09:18.:09:27.

one of a number of businesses shunning the help of Hull bed. --

:09:27.:09:34.

Hull BID. I do not think they promote the

:09:34.:09:44.

area well. I would rather do it off my own back.

:09:44.:09:48.

It cost retailers 1% of their business rates and for small shops,

:09:48.:09:56.

that can be 200 to �300 per year. They say it is at waste of money.

:09:56.:10:04.

We have no-one objections to the council rates, but why pay an extra

:10:04.:10:12.

up levy? It is totally wrong. Since the organisation was set up

:10:12.:10:19.

in 2006, crime has been reduced in the City by 33%. The team has

:10:19.:10:23.

cleaned up 6,000 pieces of the graffiti. On average they walk

:10:23.:10:28.

3,000 miles of the city's streets per year. This shop says they are

:10:28.:10:32.

doing great things. The graffiti problem is nothing

:10:32.:10:41.

like it used to be. Those guys have done a tremendous job.

:10:41.:10:47.

Elsewhere, similar schemes in Boston and Lincoln have had mixed

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:11:02.

success. In Boston, have the levy is spent on Town Rangers.

:11:02.:11:04.

With one in five shops here lying vacant, some traders say that the

:11:04.:11:12.

scheme has failed to deliver and they are seeking legal action.

:11:12.:11:22.
:11:22.:11:24.

How layer I spoke to a representative. -- earlier.

:11:24.:11:27.

Businesses have already seen improvements. We have seen a

:11:27.:11:32.

reduction of crime by about a third. We have increased footfall four

:11:32.:11:39.

hour event by about 30,000. And we have cleaned up 60 about -- 6,000

:11:39.:11:44.

pieces of graffiti. If should that not be done anyway,

:11:44.:11:50.

with business rates and everything else?

:11:50.:11:55.

I thank that the businesses came to us because it was a top priority

:11:55.:11:58.

and the local authority would not remove graffiti from private

:11:58.:12:03.

premises. There is a sizable voice against

:12:04.:12:08.

the organisation. There will always be opposition. It

:12:08.:12:13.

is an expense that people have to pay. A lot of people don't agree.

:12:13.:12:18.

And a lot of people to agree. Pound for pound, it delivers excellent

:12:19.:12:22.

results. What would you say to the sizable

:12:22.:12:25.

group that has been campaigning against this?

:12:25.:12:31.

I would like to meet with these businesses. We are a business

:12:31.:12:34.

improvement districts. We would like to help every member in the

:12:34.:12:40.

area. To the benefit of their businesses and the bigger picture.

:12:40.:12:45.

How do you know if you have done your job? What about these

:12:45.:12:51.

businesses that have been boarded In our area, we have seen a

:12:51.:12:58.

reduction of empty units since 2009. Compared to the bigger picture, we

:12:58.:13:06.

have a 20% empty unit rate and the bigger picture of his 24%.

:13:06.:13:10.

How do you respond to these people who are against the organisation

:13:10.:13:16.

taking legal action? The legislation is fairly straight.

:13:16.:13:22.

They were set up in 2004. It is not for me to decide who is wrong and

:13:22.:13:28.

who is right, and what the legislation dictates, and if the

:13:28.:13:38.
:13:38.:13:39.

opposition feel they have a grudge If you run a business in the city

:13:39.:13:46.

of hole, you might have a view on that. Get in touch. -- if you run a

Scunthorpe teenager taking Bit of a bonus tonight. We have got

:14:15.:14:21.

three pictures, mainly be cast of the unexpected thunder storm that

:14:21.:14:28.

hit parts of our area last night. The first one is of Coningsby, the

:14:28.:14:37.

second one is a snap of the walls at South Cave, and this one. Good

:14:37.:14:45.

pictures. Was this advertised? It walls. Everybody seems to have

:14:45.:14:52.

missed me saying it. I did say that some showers would be thundery! I

:14:52.:14:58.

must be whispering. I apologise. Bespeaks a Co-op!

:14:58.:15:04.

I will do. To marrowbone not be as nice as today. -- tomorrow will not

:15:04.:15:11.

be as nice as today. There is a warm front which will be working

:15:11.:15:18.

its way northwards. There will be some rain, mostly light and patchy.

:15:18.:15:22.

It has been lovely for most of those, but there have been a few

:15:22.:15:29.

showers. This evening will be dry. Overnight, cloud will increase from

:15:29.:15:33.

the South and rain will arrive in the early hours of the morning.

:15:33.:15:36.

There will be a gentle breeze from the south. Temperatures down to

:15:36.:15:46.
:15:46.:15:54.

single figures. The sun will rise just before 8am, setting at 5:38pm.

:15:54.:15:58.

Tomorrow will be a cloudy start with outbreaks of rain. Most

:15:58.:16:03.

delight and patchy. It will stick with us through the day. There will

:16:03.:16:11.

be some drier spells, but mostly cloudy skies. Gentle winds from the

:16:11.:16:15.

south. Temperatures down on what we have seen today. In Bridlington,

The number of children being adopted in England has fallen to

:17:15.:17:18.

its lowest level in a decade. Now a mum from Scunthorpe is hoping to

:17:18.:17:25.

change that. Charlotte Carson says adopted a

:17:25.:17:29.

child is the best thing she has ever done. I remember seeing a

:17:29.:17:39.
:17:39.:17:43.

programme about adopting Romanian babies. And me and my husband

:17:43.:17:52.

thought, let's looking to adoption. As part of National adoption Week,

:17:52.:17:56.

Charlotte has made a short video about what adoption meat -- what

:17:56.:18:03.

adoption means to her. It has been shortlisted in a competition.

:18:03.:18:13.
:18:13.:18:13.

year, we need 4,000 adoptive families in the UK. It is a

:18:13.:18:19.

continuing need to find more people. Children are so special. Adopting a

:18:19.:18:23.

child so it can have a life, that is extra special, and it would

:18:23.:18:27.

change your life for the better. I'm incredibly passionate about

:18:27.:18:31.

adoption. Shah that and her husband are planning to adopt a again next

:18:31.:18:36.

year. She hopes her story will inspire others to give one of the

:18:36.:18:43.

4,000 children waiting to be adopted a safe and happy home.

:18:43.:18:46.

Hope her film has a good effect. Lincoln City's new manager David

:18:46.:18:49.

Holdsworth has been given seven months to turn-around the club. The

:18:49.:18:52.

Imps are facing the possibility of their second successive relegation.

:18:52.:18:58.

Michael Hortin met the new manager as he arrived at the club. This is

:18:58.:19:03.

the man Lincoln City's fans hope will change the fortunes of the

:19:03.:19:09.

club. After relegation and a poor start to the season, David Laws

:19:09.:19:12.

what has been tasked with improving the results and putting a smile

:19:12.:19:20.

back on the face of the football club -- David Hallsworth. I can

:19:20.:19:26.

feel it is a position where it is a long journey. A long journey of

:19:26.:19:31.

unhappiness, but we would like to change that. We have to roll our

:19:31.:19:41.

sleeves up. There's plenty of ingredients to make a cake, and how

:19:41.:19:44.

do you make it taste nice? Change the ethos of perhaps the

:19:44.:19:51.

temperature. A blend of fitness, communication, organisation,

:19:51.:19:57.

rethinks and strategy is that perhaps have not been successful,

:19:57.:20:02.

and hard work. Hard work will get us everywhere. Though Lincoln

:20:02.:20:05.

City's board of directors have taken a cautious approach with the

:20:05.:20:08.

appointment of their new manager, giving him a contract only until

:20:08.:20:12.

the end of the season. Nobody should be in any doubt that David

:20:12.:20:15.

Holdsworth has a major job in turning around Lincoln City. He

:20:15.:20:23.

hopes to start doing that on Saturday. Yesterday, we told you

:20:23.:20:27.

about a pub in Hull that has installed its own "do it yourself"

:20:27.:20:31.

breathalyser for customers. The Old Zoological on Princes Avenue is the

:20:31.:20:35.

first pub in the city to use the machine. It allows customers to

:20:35.:20:41.

check if they are over the drink drive limit. Here are some of your

:20:41.:20:51.
:20:51.:21:13.

Thank-you for those. A minute's silence took place

:21:13.:21:19.

before Scunthorpe United's home game last night. It was in memory

:21:19.:21:22.

of six-year-old North Lincolnshire boy Jack Marshall, who died from a

:21:22.:21:28.

rare brain tumour almost two weeks ago.

:21:29.:21:34.

Scunthorpe went on to draw 2-2 against Huddersfield town.

:21:34.:21:38.

The last flying Vulcan bomber, an icon of the RAF's history in

:21:38.:21:40.

Lincolnshire, is being prepared to perform at the Queen's Diamond

:21:40.:21:47.

Jubilee celebrations next year. But once again the charity which runs

:21:47.:21:50.

the Vulcan is appealing for hundreds of thousands of pounds to

:21:50.:21:58.

carry out repairs. Dan Johnson has been to Robin Hood Airport, where

:21:58.:22:07.

money raising tours are being given to fans of the aircraft.

:22:07.:22:15.

The shape, the sound, the spectacle. The Vulcan Bomber pleasing the

:22:15.:22:19.

crowds area this summer. But then, things took a turn for the West.

:22:19.:22:24.

towards the end of the season, we had two a separate faults and we

:22:24.:22:29.

are having to raise 10 displays at the end of the year. It was

:22:29.:22:33.

disappointing. We pay bills were expensive, but the cost ran much

:22:33.:22:37.

bigger, so the begging bowl is out again. We have lost about �100,000

:22:37.:22:41.

from missing those their shares. We are still fighting for life in

:22:42.:22:49.

terms of funding. Shortage of money is not the biggest threat of

:22:49.:22:54.

falcons fate. In the Cold War, it carried Britain's nuclear weapons,

:22:54.:23:00.

ready to retaliate if a Russian threat came. The air were only 11

:23:00.:23:04.

years between the first flight of the Lancaster and the first flight

:23:04.:23:08.

of the Falcon. A rather fine season is over for the, tours of the

:23:08.:23:14.

plane's new home offer a chance to get close. His flew over my house

:23:14.:23:20.

about a month ago and I could not believe it. -- it through over my

:23:20.:23:24.

house. How the devil does it get off the ground? It is the pinnacle

:23:24.:23:30.

of technology from a bygone era, in preparation for the end of the

:23:30.:23:34.

world, essentially. The aircraft is due to take part in a green's

:23:34.:23:38.

diamond jubilee celebrations next year, but it needs an expensive

:23:38.:23:42.

winter service. It will be tough. The economic climate is tough, but

:23:42.:23:47.

I am sure we will be OK. I think people will rally round. A few

:23:47.:23:51.

months of TLC and around half-a- million pounds should see the

:23:51.:23:59.

Vulcan Bomber take to the skies once again next year.

:24:00.:24:04.

Fantastic pictures. If you want to see the Vulcan Bomber, its home at

:24:04.:24:08.

the moment is that the Robin Hood Airport.

:24:08.:24:11.

He's a 16-year-old from North Lincolnshire who's in the live

:24:11.:24:14.

finals of the Australian X-Factor. Reece Mastin is now through to the

:24:14.:24:19.

last six of the show. Simon Spark has been to meet his increasingly

:24:19.:24:22.

nervous family in Scunthorpe. And just to warn you, there are

:24:22.:24:29.

flashing images at the start of this report. Five weeks ago, Reece

:24:29.:24:37.

Mastin had made it to the live finals of the Australian X Factor.

:24:37.:24:42.

I wish I could get hold of him and cuddle him. It is a pop star, not

:24:42.:24:52.
:24:52.:25:01.

my nephew! Now he's in the final Every single week, you deliver.

:25:01.:25:06.

overall, it was a knockout performance. It always is from June.

:25:06.:25:08.

Regardless of what happens from here, Reece already has Australian

:25:08.:25:11.

celebrity status, and back with his relatives in Scunthorpe the

:25:11.:25:17.

excitment's still building. I think a lot of people like the fact that

:25:17.:25:27.
:25:27.:25:30.

I am English. I do not think they know where Scunthorpe is!

:25:30.:25:38.

So nervous. When I get home from work, I have to switch him straight

:25:38.:25:44.

on. I play him for five or six times before I decide to do

:25:44.:25:51.

something else, then go back and play him again. Once you see him,

:25:51.:25:55.

you have to look again and again and again. He is absolutely

:25:55.:25:57.

brilliant. And today for a brief moment, Uncle

:25:57.:26:05.

Philip was reunited on the Peter Levy Show. Hello. Hello, how why

:26:05.:26:11.

you? I am fine. When a you coming over? If you get into the final, I

:26:12.:26:17.

will be there. When they said he was on the line,

:26:17.:26:20.

there was such a prize. It was brilliant.

:26:20.:26:23.

Reece says his strategy is to take things one step at a time, but he's

:26:23.:26:33.
:26:33.:26:35.

already made giant leaps as a future rock sensation.

:26:35.:26:39.

Great story. Fingers crossed. Let's get a recap of the national and
