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

:00:06.:00:08.

Humberside's Chief Constable speaks of his shock and disbelief after

:00:08.:00:12.

Christopher Alder's family was given the wrong body to bury.

:00:12.:00:15.

It'll bring hundreds of jobs to the area, but opponents say a new

:00:25.:00:29.

shopping complex will damage It'll bring hundreds of jobs to the

:00:29.:00:31.

area, but opponents say a new shopping complex will damage

:00:31.:00:38.

Scunthorpe's high street. We have lost quite a few retailers in the

:00:38.:00:43.

past years, where does it end? As Hull Truck's original building

:00:43.:00:46.

is demolished, we're with the man who's name is synonymous with the

:00:46.:00:53.

venue. The choirs hitting the high notes

:00:53.:01:00.

in aid of Children in Need. A great day to come tomorrow, but a

:01:01.:01:10.
:01:11.:01:17.

The Chief Constable of Humberside Police has told BBC Look North that

:01:17.:01:20.

he is appalled by the Christopher Alder body mix up. Tim Hollis has

:01:21.:01:29.

been speaking publicly for the first time since it had emerged

:01:29.:01:35.

that as of old's body is still in a mortuary in Hull 11 years after his

:01:35.:01:39.

family thought that they had buried him.

:01:39.:01:44.

Tim Hollis took charge of the Humberside force shortly after

:01:44.:01:47.

officers were accused of unwitting racism following a Mr Alder's death

:01:47.:01:52.

in police custody. He had assumed that the controversy was long gone.

:01:52.:01:56.

Frankly, I could not believe suddenly getting a phone call

:01:56.:02:00.

telling me that Christopher Alder's body had been sitting in a more

:02:00.:02:04.

tree all of that time. Mr all the's body was discovered by its

:02:04.:02:12.

officials dealing with the funeral arrangements of Grace Kamara who

:02:12.:02:16.

died in 1999 but whose burial was delayed. They say that they want

:02:16.:02:20.

the truth out and clearly so do we. We need to establish exactly whose

:02:20.:02:25.

body is there and then to start to try and work out how this appalling

:02:25.:02:29.

confusion came about. Under normal circumstances the Ministry of

:02:29.:02:33.

Justice would need the consent of the grave owners to carry out an

:02:33.:02:37.

exhumation. But these are not normal circumstances. Quiz of old's

:02:37.:02:43.

family have said that they do not want at the grave disturbing

:02:43.:02:47.

picture was at the ashes of his niece have been buried there. --

:02:47.:02:53.

Christopher Alder's family. I am very unhappy about it. It prolongs

:02:53.:03:00.

the matter and again we are in limbo. We do not know where we are.

:03:00.:03:05.

We do not know where Grace's body is now. There has been no

:03:05.:03:09.

application to exude the human remains yet. We have been told in a

:03:09.:03:19.
:03:19.:03:22.

Officers from South Yorkshire police who have been called in to

:03:22.:03:25.

investigate have told both families that there will be no cover-up.

:03:25.:03:29.

They are warning that it could be months before their inquiries are

:03:29.:03:34.

completed. It is almost a week since this

:03:34.:03:38.

dreadful mix up was discovered. Have the city council had anything

:03:38.:03:42.

more to say on it? They have been noticeable by their silence. Within

:03:43.:03:48.

the past half an hour they have sent me a new statement. This has

:03:48.:03:53.

been issued on behalf of the chief executive. They say they have been

:03:53.:03:58.

on constant contact over the exhumation. She describes this as a

:03:58.:04:03.

rare and complex legal matter. She says this must all be resolved for

:04:03.:04:07.

the six of the families involved. Thank you. Of course, we will

:04:07.:04:10.

continue to follow that story here on Look North.

:04:10.:04:16.

In a moment, hundreds lined the streets of Scarborough as the Sir

:04:16.:04:22.

Jimmy Savile is laid to rest. For more news now, and national

:04:22.:04:25.

newspaper says it regrets any distress it has caused to the

:04:25.:04:29.

family home of a Red Arrows pilot in their coverage of his death.

:04:29.:04:33.

Flight Lieutenant Shaun Cummins -- Sean Cunningham was killed on

:04:33.:04:38.

Tuesday. The Daily Mail confirmed his identity even though the MoD

:04:38.:04:44.

There have been more than 90 complaints is the newspaper.

:04:44.:04:47.

The local MP, Edward Leigh, has again raised the issue in

:04:47.:04:52.

Parliament urging the MoD to keep RAF Scampton open. He told the

:04:52.:04:55.

Armed forces Minister that despite the recent tragedies the base

:04:55.:05:02.

continues to play a vital role. do suffer very much in Lincolnshire

:05:02.:05:07.

from the RAF at closing bases. As we have so many personal coming

:05:07.:05:14.

back from a Germany by Twenty20, will the Minister bear that in mind

:05:14.:05:20.

that we have a wonderful base in RAF Scampton which can remain open.

:05:20.:05:23.

Young's Seafood is reviewing its manufacturing operations in

:05:23.:05:31.

Grimsbury. But Craig Grimsby. Managers are now talking to staff

:05:31.:05:36.

about possible restructuring plans. Police have released this image of

:05:36.:05:40.

a man who are they have lured like to speak to after a train guard was

:05:40.:05:44.

threatened by a meat cleaver. They say at passenger became aggressive

:05:44.:05:49.

asked -- after being asked for his ticket. He is believed to have left

:05:49.:05:53.

to the train at Grantham. It will spell the death of our High

:05:53.:05:58.

Street, that is the fear of many traders in Scunthorpe who joined

:05:58.:06:03.

the fight against a proposed retail park on the outskirts of the town.

:06:03.:06:07.

The proposals include and Marks & Spencer store, but the Keep

:06:07.:06:10.

Scunthorpe Alive group claims it will damage high-street trade. Over

:06:10.:06:15.

the last year, high streets have seen a drop in customers of over

:06:15.:06:20.

2.6 %. Out-of-town retail parks have fared better with a drop of

:06:20.:06:26.

just 1%. Like so many high streets up and

:06:26.:06:30.

down the land, Sculthorpe has been struggling in recent months.

:06:30.:06:34.

Traders feel that a new out-of-town retail park could make matters even

:06:34.:06:40.

worse. The jewellers in this town has been here for three generations,

:06:40.:06:45.

but they are now worried about the future. We have four or five units

:06:45.:06:49.

and that could pull some of the other retailers out of the town

:06:49.:06:54.

centre. We have lost quite a few retailers in the past years and

:06:54.:06:59.

where does it end? And this is what developers want to build. A multi-

:06:59.:07:04.

million pound investment creating more than 200 jobs. Marks & Spencer

:07:04.:07:09.

will be the anchor store. There are 300 jobs that will be created by

:07:09.:07:13.

this development. It represents a �20 million investment in

:07:14.:07:18.

Scunthorpe at a time when towns up and down the country would give

:07:18.:07:23.

their eye teeth for that kind of investment. One of the irony is not

:07:23.:07:27.

lost on the traders here is that for months they campaigned to keep

:07:27.:07:31.

an MMS in Scunthorpe. This crucial difference with this talk is that

:07:31.:07:36.

it was in the heart of the High Street. -- Marks & Spencer. Marks

:07:36.:07:39.

has better left the High Street in January of this year at the same

:07:39.:07:44.

time it also pulled out of central locations in Skegness and Grantham.

:07:44.:07:49.

All three units remain vacant. In Scunthorpe, the out-of-town

:07:49.:07:54.

development is receiving political support. It is really positive that

:07:54.:07:58.

Marks and Spencer's, having left the Scunthorpe, are looking to come

:07:58.:08:02.

back into the town. That is a really positive thumbs-up for

:08:02.:08:06.

Scunthorpe and the local community. Plans for the new retail Park will

:08:06.:08:11.

be submitted in the coming weeks. If approved, the centre could

:08:11.:08:18.

opened by a late 2013. Our correspondent is on the High

:08:18.:08:24.

Street right now. How big a decision does the council have this

:08:24.:08:27.

with a dagger with this planning application? You can see the

:08:27.:08:34.

dilemma. It is issued investment and a big vote of confidence in the

:08:34.:08:39.

area, but there is evidence from other parts of the country that

:08:39.:08:49.
:08:49.:08:52.

these sort of out of town centres can harm of the High Street. Here

:08:52.:08:56.

in Scunthorpe, the traders will face an uphill struggle because

:08:56.:09:00.

this proposal has already got the support of the leader of the

:09:00.:09:03.

council and their local MP. Thank you.

:09:03.:09:07.

Richard Dodd is from the British Retail Consortium and I asked him

:09:07.:09:11.

this afternoon if the traders are right to be so worried about this

:09:11.:09:16.

out-of-town development. People in the area should be pleased that

:09:16.:09:20.

they are getting a big new retail investment because it actually

:09:20.:09:25.

shows real confidence in the long- term future of the locality. It is

:09:25.:09:28.

certainly true that many of our high streets are in trouble, but

:09:28.:09:34.

that is not about competition from other sorts of retail locations. It

:09:34.:09:39.

is about the cost of doing business in town centres, party -- parking

:09:39.:09:45.

and access and often a failure over years of investing in the town

:09:45.:09:50.

centre. That is what we should be tried to tackle. We should not do

:09:50.:09:54.

down or restrict other sorts of retelling. You reckon the traders

:09:54.:09:57.

are wrong and they should be celebrating the development out of

:09:57.:10:01.

town? They should certainly be pleased that this vote of

:10:01.:10:05.

confidence in the area. Of course, they will be having difficulties

:10:05.:10:09.

and they need addressing, but those difficulties are not about

:10:09.:10:14.

competition from somewhere else. Saying that somehow we should be

:10:14.:10:16.

restricting the so-called out-of- town retail parks is a bit like

:10:16.:10:21.

saying let's curtail the growth of internet retailing. We just cannot

:10:21.:10:25.

do it. Customers need to be given a choice and they will make their

:10:25.:10:28.

indecisions about where they chop. Certainly retailers everywhere are

:10:28.:10:37.

under pressure at the moment. They do need supporting across the board.

:10:37.:10:44.

A It is interesting that Marks and Spencer's closed in the town and

:10:44.:10:48.

then open a new store and out of the town. You need to be constantly

:10:48.:10:56.

reassessing what you're doing as a retailer. If you can only do that

:10:56.:11:02.

in and out of town or suburban location, that is what you will do.

:11:02.:11:05.

If we make it easier for customers to get a town centres and for

:11:05.:11:08.

retailers to invest in town centres in a way that works for both of

:11:08.:11:13.

those groups, then those town centres will revive. That is what

:11:13.:11:19.

we should be doing. But customers have to have the best choice of the

:11:19.:11:24.

best sort of retelling available to them. Very interesting. Thank you.

:11:24.:11:29.

I would like to know what you think about this one. Should traders in

:11:29.:11:34.

Scunthorpe be welcoming the plans to build and out of town MMS, or do

:11:34.:11:44.
:11:44.:12:02.

in Scarborough. His coffin was buried after 45 degree angle so

:12:27.:12:34.

them knew him personally. A message spelled out by the future theatre

:12:34.:12:39.

just for him. He will be missed everywhere. There are very few

:12:39.:12:45.

people like him nowadays. We came down last night and parked in our

:12:45.:12:49.

motor home to come and pay our respects. He seemed a great guy and

:12:49.:12:54.

he made people's dreams come true. The cavalcade continued into the

:12:55.:13:01.

North Bay. Sir Jimmy often ran this route while training and he asked

:13:01.:13:07.

to be buried with a view of the sea. At the cemetery, a suitable plot

:13:07.:13:11.

was prepared as more family friends and fans gathered for the burial

We buried here the Boris -- the body at our brother, Jimmy.

:13:26.:13:30.

Jimmy wanted to lie at an angle of 45 degrees to enable him to see the

:13:30.:13:35.

sea. His wish was granted and members of the public were allowed

:13:35.:13:39.

up close to see. For the family, there were mixed feelings at the

:13:39.:13:45.

end of a long farewell. It is sad because it is a family funeral and

:13:45.:13:49.

he melt a great deal to the members of his family. We always looked at

:13:49.:13:54.

him as being our Jimmy. It is also joyful in the fact that he brought

:13:54.:14:00.

so much happiness to people's lives and people respected him so much.

:14:00.:14:04.

It was so nice that people actually turned round and said that they

:14:04.:14:12.

would pay their last respects to him. That is Yorkshire people.

:14:12.:14:16.

There is a part of the Jimmy and that would undoubtedly have enjoyed

Let's have a look at the headline. It will be a dull and damp day

:15:58.:16:05.

tomorrow. Extensive fog over their heels. We saw a bit of brightness

:16:05.:16:10.

today but it is looking gloomy tomorrow. The weather front will

:16:11.:16:15.

come through on Friday giving a spell of rain. That should clear

:16:15.:16:21.

things up on Saturday and Sunday. Something to look forward to. Now

:16:21.:16:28.

it is a real makes. Some clear slots and reports of fog on the

:16:28.:16:33.

coast. Some low cloud developing shortly. If you have clear whether

:16:33.:16:38.

at the moment, it will not last long. Extensive low cloud is

:16:53.:17:03.
:17:03.:17:08.

A bit of an uninspiring start to the day. Dull and damp with

:17:08.:17:15.

extensive low cloud and drizzle and fog. That could persist in the

:17:15.:17:22.

higher parts of the Yorkshire Wolds. The drizzle to should largely peter

:17:22.:17:26.

out later. Temperatures near average but the breeze will pick up

:17:27.:17:36.

from the south-east and it will be a chilly wind. Looking further

:17:36.:17:40.

ahead into the weekend, it looks as though it will be brighter with

:17:40.:17:43.

variable cloud. The chance of a shower on Saturday but some

:17:43.:17:53.
:17:53.:18:06.

See you tomorrow. It is a venue which entertained

:18:06.:18:10.

thousands of people for over a decade but this week, demolition

:18:10.:18:14.

workers have moved on to the site of the former Hull Truck Theatre to

:18:14.:18:20.

start knocking it down. For one man, this venue holds more memories than

:18:20.:18:25.

most. John Godber is the theatre's artistic director and we went back

:18:25.:18:31.

there this afternoon. What is your memory of this building? Of the 60

:18:31.:18:37.

odd plays I have written, 57 of them started here. Some fantastic

:18:37.:18:44.

experiences and memories. You have had some celebrities? Shirley Anne

:18:44.:18:52.

Field arrived for Romeo and Juliet and she walked into Julie Edwards

:18:52.:19:00.

at the box office, through her cars at her and said, "Power my car".

:19:00.:19:06.

She threw them back and said to park it herself. How sad I you when

:19:06.:19:14.

you see that? It is a piece of whole history. Is it sad? It is a

:19:14.:19:22.

quarter of this century's history. You could bring your beer in.

:19:22.:19:27.

was the first -- first thing I remember. You could take your glass

:19:27.:19:32.

in. That was a real stipulation. They wanted it to be a theatre

:19:33.:19:39.

space for the people. All the early shows were only 40 minutes. Why?

:19:39.:19:45.

that people could get to the loo! And it at the show to London and

:19:45.:19:51.

they said it was a bit short. They thought it was the height of

:19:51.:19:54.

sophistication sitting with a pint of beer and a packet of crisps. It

:19:54.:20:01.

was very attractive. How do you see when you see it being pulled down -

:20:01.:20:07.

- how do you feel? Hull has a fantastic though new and the city

:20:07.:20:13.

has a wonderful piece of new kit -- fantastic venue. You are looking

:20:13.:20:19.

well. We did some filming in the middle of the 1980s. I knew there

:20:19.:20:25.

was a catch! We went to a school and when you look at the pictures,

:20:25.:20:34.

you are half the such -- size. And I look like a schoolboy. I eat lost

:20:34.:20:39.

a bit of weight, that's the good thing. Good to see you. Thank you

:20:39.:20:44.

very much. At the time, those jumpers were the

:20:44.:20:48.

height of fashion. So was the mullet.

:20:48.:20:53.

This is another one you might want to comment on. You might have some

:20:53.:21:02.

memories. Blair was a treat this afternoon he was an usherette. --

:21:54.:21:58.

help teach old skills to modern apprentices. It would have been

:21:58.:22:04.

dead and buried now. It is incredible how much it has turned

:22:04.:22:13.

around. In the Thirties, it ran from would be to halt. But it's 80

:22:13.:22:17.

year-old official history makes no mention of how it survived the

:22:17.:22:22.

scrap heap. It was in service around the area so a few people

:22:22.:22:27.

might remember travelling on it or one or two similar ones. It was

:22:27.:22:33.

loaned to the RAF during the war and came back in 1943, I think. It

:22:33.:22:38.

was stored and then sold. The archive is mysterious but I think

:22:38.:22:42.

it ended up as a caravan. More than three million people will watch the

:22:42.:22:45.

bus and its restorers take to the streets of London in the Lord

:22:46.:22:49.

Mayor's Parade this weekend, giving them a rare chance to hear and see

:22:59.:23:01.

a Yorkshire Tiger returned to its It's that time of year again, and

:23:01.:23:04.

final preparations are being made for Children in Need. Fundraising

:23:04.:23:08.

has already started across our part of the world and, for seven very

:23:08.:23:11.

different choirs, they've certainly got their work cut out. They'll be

:23:11.:23:14.

competing at a big event in Hull next Friday, Children in Need night,

:23:14.:23:17.

and they're being mentored by presenters from BBC Radio

:23:17.:23:27.

Humberside. Finishing touches or Hot Gospel,

:23:38.:23:44.

Children in Need. Come the 18th, they will want your money as they

:23:44.:23:52.

and their mentor, David Burns, will compete in Children in Need rocks.

:23:52.:23:57.

It is a brilliant cause. We have watched it year on year and watched

:23:57.:24:02.

the total go up. It is exciting to be part of that. They have
