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

:00:03.:00:06.

Pothole problems could get worse as councils struggle to find the money

:00:06.:00:16.
:00:16.:00:17.

to repair the roads before winter. Their is about �10.5 billion needed

:00:18.:00:21.

to bring the Highways up to the proper standard. Local government

:00:21.:00:25.

on its own cannot afford that. A jury hears prosecution claims

:00:25.:00:29.

that Grimsby man Adam Vincent was murdered by a drug gang - the trial

:00:29.:00:37.

begins against five men accused of Remembering the fallen - People

:00:37.:00:39.

across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire pay their respects on

:00:39.:00:42.

Armistice Day. And the local landmark that's reopening its doors

:00:42.:00:52.
:00:52.:00:52.

after a multi-million pound facelift. It has been another

:00:52.:00:55.

overcast day-to-day. Will there be any sunshine over the weekend? I

:00:55.:01:05.
:01:05.:01:07.

They're the bane of many drivers' lives and now the budget for

:01:07.:01:10.

repairing potholes in Lincolnshire needs to be doubled in order to

:01:10.:01:14.

mend all the county's roads. The County Council has �27 million to

:01:14.:01:17.

deal with the problem and says it's working hard to fix all the worst

:01:17.:01:22.

holes before winter. It comes amid calls for the Government to

:01:22.:01:24.

increase the amount it gives councils for repairs as the

:01:24.:01:32.

national bill runs into billions of pounds. Siobhan Robbins reports.

:01:32.:01:35.

They're the holes in the road which are leaving huges dents in council

:01:35.:01:38.

budget. And as winter approaches, we're warned the problem is only

:01:39.:01:48.
:01:49.:01:49.

going to get worse. Over the whole of the country at last year, there

:01:49.:01:52.

were 2.2 million potholes filled. You can see the scale of the

:01:52.:01:57.

problem when you look at last year. The chances are that with another

:01:57.:02:02.

severe winter, it will be worse this time. Pot holes cost councils

:02:02.:02:12.

millions each year. This year, Hull has �1.7 million to fix the problem.

:02:12.:02:15.

With over 5000 miles of road, the bill facing Lincolnshire is bigger

:02:15.:02:22.

than most. We could do with double the allocation we have been given.

:02:22.:02:25.

That would bring things back to where we would like to see them.

:02:25.:02:31.

Realistically, the budget is finite. The county council and the

:02:31.:02:34.

government have been generous to us as a county and I think we have

:02:34.:02:38.

made good use of it allocation which has been given over the last

:02:38.:02:42.

12 months. How When snow and ice melt, this is often what's left

:02:42.:02:45.

behind. An issue Beverley Hawthorn knows only too well after potholes

:02:45.:02:50.

caused an accident outside her house in Brant Brawton.

:02:50.:02:55.

A man went into the hole and his tyre burst. He was lucky he was not

:02:55.:02:59.

seriously hurt. And it's not just affecting councils - damage from

:02:59.:03:09.
:03:09.:03:09.

potholes costs drivers �320 million a year. I would have said it on a

:03:09.:03:17.

vehicle older than five years, you could see make �200 pair up MoT

:03:17.:03:22.

added purely in suspension work. The problem's so costly there are

:03:22.:03:32.

now calls for more Government cash to sort them out. We estimate about

:03:32.:03:35.

�10.5 billion needed to bring highways up to the proper standards.

:03:35.:03:40.

Local government on its own cannot afford that. We need national

:03:40.:03:43.

solutions to national problems. Lincolnshire County Council says

:03:43.:03:45.

it's fixed the worst holes but another bad winter could mean

:03:45.:03:54.

pouring more money into the ground. I'm joined this evening by Duncan

:03:54.:03:56.

McClure Fisher from Potholes UK which campaigns on behalf of

:03:56.:04:05.

drivers. Do you have any sympathy with the local authorities? They're

:04:05.:04:08.

telling us they are putting more money into this but they have a

:04:08.:04:13.

battle on their hands. They have a responsibility to repair the roads

:04:13.:04:17.

and keep them at an adequate standard. It is not unreasonable

:04:17.:04:22.

for drivers to expect roads to the pot hole free. One of the big

:04:22.:04:26.

problems is that drivers are not reporting the potholes and we want

:04:26.:04:32.

to highlight that and encourage drivers to report potholes on the

:04:32.:04:36.

Council website or on our less sex, to make sure the council was aware

:04:36.:04:41.

of it and they are repaired. We had freak weather last year and are

:04:41.:04:45.

expecting it again this year. Local councils will say that in austerity

:04:45.:04:51.

they have to prioritise. Then they do but I think what will happen is

:04:51.:04:55.

that as divers damage their cars, they will have to pay for the

:04:55.:04:59.

repairs. They will have an opportunity to claim money back

:04:59.:05:03.

from the councils and councils will be paying drivers for damage caused

:05:03.:05:08.

to the cars or they will be paying the roads. Either way, there is

:05:08.:05:13.

cost associated with it. They have a responsibility. In their

:05:13.:05:17.

deadlines, it says how quickly they will repair roads. The problem is a

:05:17.:05:22.

lot of the smaller roads are not checked that often. They may only

:05:22.:05:26.

be checked once the here and that is why it is up to the drivers to

:05:26.:05:32.

ensure the council was aware of that. We do all have a role to play

:05:32.:05:40.

in this and need to speak out. It is not just cars. There is the

:05:40.:05:44.

damage to cars and we see that through warranty repairs but there

:05:44.:05:48.

is also the cyclists. They have the problem of head and potholes where

:05:48.:05:53.

you have a big pot hole and if it has been raining, it can cause a

:05:53.:05:58.

lot more than monetary damage to the cyclist. Thank you.

:05:58.:06:02.

There will be more on this and an interview with Lincoln MP Karl

:06:02.:06:05.

McCartney on car insurance fraud on The Politics Show this weekend.

:06:05.:06:08.

That's with Tim Iredale on BBC1 this Sunday at the later time of

3:10pm. We'd love to hear what you think about this issue. Have you

:06:40.:06:43.

The jury has been sworn in at Sheffield Crown Court in the trial

:06:43.:06:47.

of five men accused of murdering Grimsby man Adam Vincent. Mr

:06:47.:06:57.
:06:57.:06:59.

Vincent's body parts were found at two sites in Northern Lincolnshire.

:06:59.:07:05.

The jury was told that on 3rd March this year, birdwatchers and found a

:07:05.:07:15.

human leg. It belonged to Adam Vincent. His body had been cut into

:07:15.:07:18.

six parts and was discovered across Lincolnshire by police. For the

:07:18.:07:21.

prosecution, Tom Baylis QC told the jury Adam Vincent had been murderd

:07:21.:07:24.

by a drug gang, He said Lee Griffiths, his sons Luke and Tom,

:07:24.:07:27.

his stepson Mark Jackson and fellow drug dealer Matthew Frow killed him

:07:27.:07:29.

after they suspected him of stealing more than �5,000 and

:07:29.:07:33.

talking to police. All five deny murder. The prosecution said Adam

:07:33.:07:36.

Vincent was a drug addict and did some small time dealing for the

:07:36.:07:41.

gang, with which he was also living. Mr Bayliss QC said the gang began

:07:41.:07:46.

to physically abuse him for two weeks which ended in his death. The

:07:46.:07:49.

jury heard Mr Vincent died from at least three blows to the head but

:07:49.:07:52.

had suffered numerous injuries before including fractured ribs and

:07:52.:08:02.
:08:02.:08:06.

bruising. Pellets from an air rifle were also found in his body. The

:08:06.:08:09.

five men and another, Andrew Lusher, also deny perverting the course of

:08:09.:08:12.

justice. The prosecution said the men conspired to dispose and

:08:12.:08:19.

conceal the dismembered body of Adam Vincent.

:08:19.:08:23.

The prosecution say they hired a van with the purpose of disposing

:08:23.:08:29.

of the remains. Samples taken from the banner matched the DNA profile

:08:29.:08:34.

of Adam Vincent and the ban was also seen at near Tetbury loch

:08:34.:08:41.

where the remains were discovered. There are still six defences to be

:08:41.:08:45.

heard at so it is thought the trial may continue until the new year.

:08:45.:08:48.

Mourners have gathered in Wakefield for the funeral of a police officer

:08:48.:08:53.

from East Yorkshire who died on the M1 last month. 40-year-old Mark

:08:53.:08:56.

Goodlad from Goole worked as a traffic officer for West Yorkshire

:08:56.:08:59.

Police. He was helping a woman whose car had broken down when he

:08:59.:09:02.

was hit by a lorry. The sister of a Hull man, whose

:09:02.:09:05.

body was discovered in the city's mortuary 11 years after a different

:09:05.:09:08.

body was buried in his place, says she wants experts to officially

:09:08.:09:11.

identify him. Christopher Alder died in police custody in Hull in

:09:11.:09:16.

1998. His sister Janet, seen here on the left, says she's been told

:09:16.:09:19.

by South Yorkshire police who are investigating the mix up that it's

:09:19.:09:29.
:09:29.:09:31.

only been possible to identify his body by a tattoo.

:09:31.:09:33.

Humberside Police's Chief Constable says he's concerned about what a

:09:33.:09:36.

cut in Home Office funding could mean for Police Community Support

:09:36.:09:38.

Officers. Around two thirds of the force's 332 community support

:09:38.:09:41.

officers are paid for by a government grant which ends in less

:09:41.:09:46.

than two years. Jake Zuckerman has more.

:09:46.:09:49.

For three years now, PCSO Tracey Parkinson has been patrolling the

:09:49.:09:54.

Holderness Road area of Hull. A familiar face, and point of contact

:09:54.:10:02.

for the local community, helping to prevent and detect crime. I have

:10:02.:10:06.

spoken to people who do not always want to pick up the telephone and

:10:06.:10:11.

they will say in passing, can I speak to you? I don't want to get

:10:11.:10:18.

involved but... They will want to tell you something. If they pick up

:10:18.:10:21.

the phone, they are automatically involved and going further than

:10:21.:10:25.

they wanted to go. But now concerns have been raised about the future

:10:25.:10:27.

of the force's community support officers. Currently two thirds of

:10:27.:10:30.

the funding is ringfenced by Government and can't be used for

:10:30.:10:37.

anything else. But that protection comes to an end in March 2013.

:10:37.:10:45.

will then have to make a decision over how we continue to affords

hour police committee support officers. It will be an issue for

:10:49.:10:52.

the newly-elected police commissioners. They will have the

:10:52.:10:57.

decision of as to whether they need to get additional local funding to

:10:57.:11:01.

maintain that level of policing. Her Many who live in the area

:11:01.:11:04.

patrolled by Tracey, have come to value the work she and her

:11:04.:11:09.

colleagues do. I think they are a good thing. It takes a lot of

:11:09.:11:14.

pressure off the other place. think there should be more of them.

:11:14.:11:19.

You do not see a lot of them. sure a lot of people would miss

:11:19.:11:22.

them. Ultimately the future of community policing will depend on

:11:22.:11:25.

the new elected police and crime commissioner, and where they decide

the force's money is best spent. Thanks for all your messages about

after 4pm. So, tomorrow it will be a cloudy, dull and damp started the

will keep a fair bit of clout, but there will be some bright and sunny

spells. -- Clow old. Temperatures higher than today, around 14 or 15

:14:55.:15:00.

degrees. Pleasant with just a gentle breeze from the south. The

cloud will swing back up from the south over the weekend, Sunday will

be a drizzly start, the best of any prime this will be a way from the

Thousands of people in our region paid their respects today to those

:15:34.:15:37.

who lost their lives in military action. Veterans attended Armistice

:15:37.:15:41.

Day services across the area. At 11:00am a two-minute silence was

:15:41.:15:51.
:15:51.:16:01.

It is very important, we should always remember. With conflicts

:16:01.:16:07.

going on it is right and proper. is getting bigger every year and

:16:07.:16:13.

show it it should, these man laid their lives on the line. Many

:16:13.:16:21.

people have a link to people in key military through the family.

:16:21.:16:24.

Meanwhile two men in Bridlington have produced a book about the

:16:24.:16:27.

town's war heroes. It features all soldiers, sailors and airmen listed

:16:27.:16:35.

on the town's Cenotaph. Anne Marie Tasker reports.

:16:35.:16:40.

334 names, each with a story to tell. The history of these man

:16:40.:16:46.

brought together in a book telling their lives. The research started

:16:46.:16:52.

in June 2002. I thought all of them, all of the serviceman who gave

:16:52.:16:59.

their lives, have been forgotten. I decided to research them all.

:16:59.:17:02.

and his colleague Mike painstakingly gathered personal

:17:02.:17:06.

stories and photographs, taking information from headstones and

:17:07.:17:11.

memorials in Belgium and France to help peace together this special

:17:11.:17:17.

book. We have found parents, schools, the address where being

:17:17.:17:23.

listed went to serve. Where they fought, and because they are on the

:17:23.:17:29.

Cenotaph where they died. It tells a tale of the impact that war had

:17:29.:17:35.

on many families and the losses they suffered as a result. People

:17:35.:17:40.

are losing three sons, imagine losing three sons. All officers,

:17:40.:17:44.

obviously destined for good things in civilian life. None of them

:17:44.:17:50.

making it, it must have been devastating. It is hoped this book

:17:50.:17:55.

of Bridlington's war heroes will bring more to the names on the

:17:55.:18:02.

Cenotaph. Anne Marie is at the City of all for us, what is happening

:18:02.:18:10.

which really counts this evening. Yes, we are spending �1.4 million

respective coaches of both countries. The game has received

:20:10.:20:13.

the ringing endorsement of local fans who have bought nearly every

:20:13.:20:16.

seat for the game. Our sports reporter Simon Clark has been

:21:53.:21:59.

am looking forward to the game there. By all accounts it will be a

:21:59.:22:07.

really big crowds and we know what it is like when it is full. I am

:22:07.:22:14.

sure the lads will enjoy it. Seven matches in this four nation series,

:22:14.:22:20.

but this game promises to be the best of the lot.

:22:20.:22:22.
