Could fans' favourite Nick Barmby be named as the new Hull City

Lincolnshire Council is introducing 67 speed changes. Bestriding is
reducing the limit in Bharti places. In Lincolnshire, all A and B roads
are being reviewed. This is one of the of UK's most
dangerous roads. This stretch saw 67 accidents, 31 serious injuries
and four deaths. Little wonder it is part of the UK wind speed of you.
In North Lincolnshire, that review is complete. You get lorries and

now come up with what we think will be a better set of speed limits.
The national speed limit on rural roared. Five years ago, the
Government charge local authorities with the reviewing the speeds. Many
argued that changes needed to be made. But Theddlethorpe Road is
under review. What we are doing is putting up numbers and pitting safe
drivers into the grip of offenders. One rod where speed is going up is
a hall and bypass in north Lincolnshire. He it is going from
30 to 60. Other changes to roads will be phased in over the next few
years. Spacious it -- - isms are still to be made over accident

that naturist DVDs of children sold by a company in East Yorkshire me
be indecent. The professor of law at the University of Langton says
that scenes which show some girls naked could be breaking the law.
The company says it affects all its titles and does not think they are
indecent. From a small offices in Goole in
East Yorkshire, New Freedom Publications runs a website selling
naturist DVDs among dozens on sale at some costing �40. He shows naked
children playing, climbing rope ladders etc. Showing nakedness does
not break the lock but Professor of lock Richard Stone thought these
films might. If the pictures are showing genitals, that becomes more
likely to be indecent. Would you consider this indecent? I think
some bits of it we that focuses on the genitals can be regarded as
indecent yes. Naturist Freedom centres this document. It also says
that their cages done in a sensitive way. For years, naturists
have been filmed. This is naturism as the nudist likes to see it. We
asked someone from British naturism how unusual it is to film children
are that is very unusual because the law is so beak because no one
knows what is legal to film. I have had conversations with naturist
families who have complained that they are not allowed to have
photographs, or they feel they are not allowed to have photographs of
their children doing normal things. Health and efficiency did not want
to speak to us but its parent company new freedom gave us a
statement. It said, the company vet all DVDs for suitability before
supplying them and has rejected summit felt inappropriate. It says
there is nothing inherently immoral or harmful about naturist videos.
It added that whether run DVD is indecent is open to interpretation.
One veteran child protection campaigner agrees. Esther Rantzen

children's private parts. It does not have a nasty feel. I would
allow it to be sold if I were a judge but thank heavens I am not a
judge because of paedophiles got hold of it, they would watch it for
the wrong reasons. Trading standards is investigating whether
the title should have been examined by the British Board of Film
Classification. We have handed the footage to Humberside Police.

The court has heard evidence from the father of a man from Grimsby
who was killed and dismembered. Keith Vincent said his son brought
down and said he was frightened three weeks before his death. Five
men are on trial for murder and a six for four perverting the court
of justice. What did he tell the court? He said he saw his son in
the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby in February. He
said Adam was poorly with pneumonia and he told his son he had to take

resolve. He said he could not tell his father who he was in trouble
with because they would come looking for him. When he was cross-
examined, the QC asked why he could not turn to his family. Keith
Vincent said he was too frightened. Three weeks later, he was dead. The

I am very well. It is a dull and dreary one. There
will be some form. It will be similar to last week. High pressure
in charge. On Thursday, there will be a change. There should be some
brightness towards the end of the week. Look at the extent of the
cloud. It is not going to shift in a hurry. If anything, the cloud
will thicken. There will be some drizzle. It is very mild foreign
night time temperature. The sun will rise in the morning. High
water times are there. It is another straightforward forecast,

brighten. The breeze and the south- east. Very mild for November. Abdul
You reckon if you try 400 miles, you are safe. But you are still not
safe. You were off on Friday as well, when two. I saw that one in
Magor Luther! Now, let us get back to our top
story: More than 100 new speed limits are being introduced in the
Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Many places will seat speed limits
job to 30 in an effort to me to government targets.
Good evening. Good evening. Local authorities were told in 2006 to
look at speed limits on their roads. Five years on, all at Aand be mac
roads are under review. Some of that work has been completed and
certain villages and made roads have been -- have had their speed
limits changed. When you hear this story tonight about speed limits
being reduced, presumably welcome this with open arms? Yes, we do.
Speed limits of change, sometimes they are a increased, and it is
meted with safety. Reducing the speed limit is not always
appropriate, sometimes it is appropriate to raise that speed
limit. The A18 is of particular concern. Would lowering the speed
limit their actually help? Possibly, in some cases. There are a lot of
interventions that can be carried out on that particular road that
would, perhaps, help. As you mentioned before, there are four
fatal collisions that have occurred on that road. Many more incidents,
over 50, have occurred there. 38 of those have been for other reasons.
That is excessive speed, loss of control and other such reasons.
That is not about the road itself, that is about the driver. We need
to look at the driver before we look at the roads as well. The two
go hand in hand. We need to look at educational methods to try and tell
drivers how to behave on the road. Thank you.
Now, for conservationists, places like Spurn Head, Donna Nook and
Gibraltar Point are some of the most important in the UK. But they
are worried that a Government announcement to be made in the next
few days will see East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire coastline missing
out on getting the special protection they have been
campaigning for. It may be hard to believe that just
under the surface the North Sea is home to way hidden world of marine
life, that many of us never see. Conservationists say the area needs
to be protected from the unseen damage done by pollution and
overfishing. It is home to a whole range of different species, all
living on the sea floor. They're quite fragile, prone to damage. But
also this area is a perfect place for fish to come and spawn. Unique
habitats like Spurn Point were to become part of a unique network of
conservation zones. Flamborough Head and Gibraltar Point were to be
highly protected. Other areas included sections of the East
Yorkshire and Lincolnshire coast. Now, only a fraction of these areas
could go ahead because of a lack of scientific evidence. We are quite
concerned, across England around one million people have been
involved and it has cost the Government around �8.8 million. We
are convinced that we can bring our seas up to health in one generation.
Sea users are backing the plans, even though it could mean more
restrictions on commercial activities in some areas.
stocks are really getting depleted and something needs to be done.
is a delicate balance to strike between the needs of man and nature.
We need good scientific evidence about what is happening in the sea,
and what we are doing it. Not just the fishermen, but other industries.
Places like Spurn Point could be unprotected. As you can see, this
is a busy shipping way but it all takes its toll on marine life. We
will find out later this week which of the sides, if any, get the
protection conservationists say they desperately need.
Let us hope they do. The new Bishop of Lincoln has begun his first

Used think you know who the new Hull City manager will be?
Barmby is likely to take on the role as a caretaker initially with
a view to becoming the permanent manager should Nigel Pearson its
departure to Leicester be confirmed. He will be the First Hull bond
manager of the club and those supporters seem to be welcoming the
news. The name of Nick Barmby is every bit as synonymous with Hull
as fish and chips. Most of the diners at one fish-and-
chip emporium today were smacking their lips at the prospect of
Barmby's appointment. He deserves it. He is the longest serving
player there. The I think it is a good idea, I like him. I do not
think he has got enough experience to takeover. I think he would do
well if he was number two. But I do not think he would be good enough,
to be honest, because he has not got enough experience as a manager.
Nick Barmby is the most decorated Hull City player of modern times.
He was part of an England team that famously beat Germany 5-1. He
played for top clubs including Liverpool and at -- Everton.
Appointing him as manager would be a gamble. Anyone you appoint as
manager it is a gamble, and the first time for anyone is a gamble,
but he has got such a lot of experience from the past, working
under big managers at the clubs he has been at. He could become a
brilliant manager. Nick Barmby's appointment will be confirmed once
the current manager's departure is a completed. His next challenge may
be to repeat the feat as Hull City manager.
How much of Eriskay is it? It is always a gamble. Key to get an
experienced No. 2 to nurse him through.
Scunthorpe United and Grimsby Town know who they could play in the
second round of the FA Cup. United will go to Bradford City if they
win the replay with a of see Wimbledon. The Mariners will play

The city of Hull has moved to the top of the pecking order for when
the host cities are announced for the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. It
follows the KC Stadium's hosting of the New Zealand against England
game. England! This is what the world Cup
committee wanted to see, stream after stream of fans heading to the
city for what turned out to be one of the matches of the season. Right
from the start, to the way the KC Stadium was prepared, has propelled
Hull forward. There are two fine clubs here, there is a fine club
over the river. At the end of the day, I think we have got a deadline
and a timetable to work to, but I think it would be a major surprise
if there was not something of the World Cup here in 2013. How much?
It is something of a surprise. did not have to dig deep to find a
ringing endorsement. Hull has got to be a short one in the World Cup
for me. If you look at tonight as a spectacle, a game and donate event,
this stadium, the Hull City is geared up to support Rugby League.
Hull people are mad Rugby League people and if they do not get a
World Cup game down here it would be an injustice to the town.
After registering a record crowd for a game against New Zealand, the
KC Stadium can look forward to more big games coming its way. The 2013
World Cup is just around the corner. That is all the sport for me. You
can send me your tweets. You do not read much, do you?
of wisdom. We are waiting for them. Children In Need is this Friday
night, the 18th, we will be broadcasting live throughout the
evening. If you cannot wait that long, there is an event at the
city's Cineworld tomorrow night. It is a Grease gala night with a
special screening of the film and cinema-goers are encouraged to go

It was one of the biggest turnouts on the Remembrance Day parade for
years. Thousands lined the streets of whole -- of Hull, as one woman
remembered her husband. Corporal Lee Scott was killed in Afghanistan
in 2009. Nikki Scott is raising money to help children who have
lost parents in war. On this day of remembrance,
thousands lined the streets of Hull this year to pay their respects. I
was servicemen and women greeted with spontaneous applause.
The Remembrance Day service in the city was described as one of the
busiest in recent years. With many personal stories about loved ones
lost in different wars and conflicts. It is my grandfather
that I have never met, obviously, he went down on the Courageous.
loved the Royal Marines, he lived for them, and obviously, he died
for them. He was such a lovely lad. For one bereaved family, though,
their recent grief is being put to good use. Corporal Lee Scott from
King's Lynn was killed in Afghanistan in 2009. His wife,
Nikki Scott, has now launched a family for bereaved military
families. It is children who it is hoped will benefit most. The bigger
gold is to raise around �450,000 to buy a holiday home throughout the
UK. So that widows can phone up and say, I am having a bad week, is
there a home available next week? And we can say yes, the fridge will
be stopped and they can get away. They have already raised �100,000,
paying for special trips and presence on birthdays and at
Christmas time. I think he would be really chuffed with what we are
doing. Kids were his life, if this charity is helping kids, he would
be really pleased. She is hopeful she can raise her target by this
time next year. Remembering the servicemen and women who have lost
their lives in conflict and their grieving families who they have
left behind. Of course, we wish her all the very
best with her work. A recap of the main national and
regional headlines: The full scale of the hacking scandal is revealed
by a an inquiry into press standards.
A dull, damp start to the day tomorrow with hill fog. It will
brighten up later. Temperatures around ten Celsius.
A response coming in on that story about speed limits. MSS, I think
reducing speed limits could cause more accidents because of impatient
drivers taking over. It could affect journey times, due
to the speed limits. Roads are sometimes very ill
thought out, making problems inevitable.
Another one, the speed limit of where I live is already 30 mph,
everyone, including the local bus, breaks the speed limit.
And finally, I think it is absolutely ridiculous to lower the
