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

A pioneering new approach to child obesity in Lincolnshire.

:00:08.:00:14.

The plate that states how much our children should be eating. He would

get half that sort of size. She would get a full one. That is all

:00:19.:00:21.

they get. Safety concerns after P&O announce

:00:21.:00:26.

plans to re-register its Hull passenger ferries abroad. All my

:00:26.:00:31.

life in Parliament, I have fought against flags of convenience. They

:00:31.:00:37.

are not as safe. Putting their skills to the test.

:00:37.:00:39.

Firefighters training in tough conditions ready for challenging

:00:39.:00:42.

rescues. The One Show's Matt Baker brings

:00:42.:00:51.

the latest leg of his epic rickshaw challenge to Lincolnshire.

:00:51.:01:01.
:01:01.:01:05.

And will the sunshine still be with A radical scheme to cut child

:01:05.:01:08.

obesity is being pioneered in Lincolnshire. All four-year-olds

:01:08.:01:12.

starting school will be given a small plate to guide them as to how

:01:12.:01:18.

much food they really need. The county has more overweight and

:01:18.:01:21.

obese children than the national average, with more than 14% of 4

:01:21.:01:25.

and 5-year-old children being overweight. By the time they leave

:01:25.:01:29.

primary school, this figure has risen to more than 19%. NHS

:01:29.:01:32.

Lincolnshire is issuing 7,000 of the so-called "me size" plates this

:01:32.:01:35.

year to try to reverse this trend. Our correspondent, Vicky Johnson

:01:35.:01:42.

reports. These 4 and 5-year-olds at St

:01:42.:01:45.

John's Community Infants near Lincoln are being measured and

:01:45.:01:55.
:01:55.:01:55.

weighed, like all new school starters across the country.

:01:55.:01:58.

They'll be monitored again when they leave at 11. Current figures

:01:58.:02:01.

show by then, around 20% of them will be overweight. Health

:02:01.:02:03.

officials are convinced that introducing these new small plates

:02:03.:02:11.

will help control both portion size and their weight. And there is a

:02:11.:02:18.

plate for you. This is about getting parents to think about how

:02:18.:02:24.

to give their children the right amount.

:02:24.:02:26.

But most parents we spoke to already realised that young

:02:26.:02:33.

children need much smaller portions. How do you gauge how much to give

:02:33.:02:43.
:02:43.:02:43.

your child? I would give two slices to him. She would get a whole one,

:02:43.:02:46.

all topped up. These plates are just the latest

:02:46.:02:49.

initiative to tackle the obesity epidemic. There is now more funding

:02:49.:02:52.

for hot school meals, workshops on healthy eating and fit kid

:02:52.:02:54.

programmes across the region. Individual schools are doing their

:02:54.:03:03.

bit too. We try to keep that element of fun going throughout the

:03:03.:03:13.
:03:13.:03:15.

school. Further Upper School, we have all sorts of equipment and

:03:15.:03:18.

innovative approaches. These little ones are slim, fit and

:03:18.:03:24.

raring to go. The challenge for us all is to help keep them that way.

:03:24.:03:30.

Tam Fry is from the National Obesity Forum and he joins me now.

:03:30.:03:34.

Tam, are these portion control plates a good idea? I think they

:03:34.:03:41.

are very good idea. What a Lincolnshire is doing is to try and

:03:41.:03:46.

blend of what happens at home with what happens at school. You can do

:03:46.:03:54.

all you can as cool -- at school, but then what happens at home?

:03:54.:03:59.

Giving the plate for the children to take home gives parents an idea.

:03:59.:04:04.

I thoroughly approve of. But all these years, parents have managed

:04:04.:04:09.

perfectly well. The greater proportion of mothers and fathers

:04:09.:04:14.

have managed. But there is a significant minority who really do

:04:14.:04:19.

not have a good idea of a child reading and how much it to give

:04:19.:04:26.

children. -- child to a reading. Should are the plays be given to

:04:26.:04:31.

every child or just the overweight ones? They should be given to every

:04:31.:04:36.

child, otherwise have there is a stigma attached. You may lose a

:04:36.:04:41.

little bit of money on it, but you when I read in the end because

:04:41.:04:46.

everyone is treated the same way. can almost hear some parents

:04:46.:04:49.

screaming at the television when they hear this. Can you imagine

:04:49.:04:57.

them doing that? It is the nanny state gone mad. People can scream

:04:57.:05:01.

at television sets as much as they like, but they have to understand

:05:01.:05:06.

that the schools and the NHS are doing this as good advice. They are

:05:06.:05:12.

not insisting that the plates are used. We think that these plates

:05:12.:05:17.

are perhaps more appropriate than the plates children might normally

:05:17.:05:23.

have, which could be large and full of food. Very interesting to talk

:05:23.:05:29.

to you. Thank you for joining us. And we are interested to know what

:05:29.:05:35.

you think about this one. Is it a good idea or a waste of money? Get

:05:35.:05:45.

In a moment. From lonely and isolated to

:05:57.:06:00.

confident and sociable. How a youth scheme supported by Children in

:06:00.:06:03.

Need is helping to bring teenagers out of their shell.

:06:03.:06:06.

The Hull MP Karl Turner has demanded an urgent meeting with the

:06:06.:06:09.

ferry company P & O after it decided to re-register two of its

:06:09.:06:17.

passenger ferries which sail out of the city's docks. The Pride of York

:06:17.:06:20.

and the Pride of Hull are currently UK registered, but will soon fly

:06:20.:06:25.

the flag of the Bahamas. The company says it's trying to save

:06:25.:06:28.

money on staff pay, but Mr Turner says he's worried about safety and

:06:28.:06:32.

the rights of workers. In a moment, we'll hear from him, but first

:06:32.:06:39.

here's our Business Correspondent Paul Murphy.

:06:39.:06:43.

The Daily arrival and departure of the ferries in Hull has been a

:06:43.:06:48.

common sight for more than 40 years. The impending changes that to most

:06:48.:06:53.

of the state are subtle but important. Many ferries will be

:06:53.:06:58.

registered, not in the UK, but in the Bahamas. It means that the

:06:58.:07:08.
:07:08.:07:09.

company can avoid European employment law if. Under new

:07:09.:07:15.

European laws, P&O are required to pay all staff the same rate for the

:07:15.:07:25.
:07:25.:07:42.

same job. In a statement, P&O said Take-off the pride that. It is not

:07:42.:07:51.

the pride of Hull. I spent all my see life fighting this sort of

:07:51.:07:59.

thing. People have died under these are flags of convenience ships.

:07:59.:08:03.

Maritime the unions believe it is bad news for British jobs.

:08:03.:08:10.

Government needs to look again at seafaring and British jobs. One of

:08:10.:08:18.

the consequences of not being on the British register means that P&O

:08:18.:08:24.

will not be under the tonnage tax register and it not duty-bound to

:08:24.:08:34.
:08:34.:08:35.

train up British sailors. Concerns are already being expressed about

:08:35.:08:43.

the ethics of unequal pay. Hull MP Karl Turner says he's

:08:43.:08:52.

extremely concerned. Many people who live and work in my

:08:52.:08:55.

constituency will be affected by this. This is a blatant attempt by

:08:55.:08:58.

P&O Ferries to get round the employment legislation, long

:08:58.:09:00.

established employment laws, which protect workers. It is also an

:09:00.:09:03.

attempt to circumvent health and safety laws, which is very worrying

:09:03.:09:12.

to people who use those ferries. Different flags, it is commonplace,

:09:12.:09:17.

no big deal? It might well be commonplace, but the management who

:09:17.:09:20.

I have spoken to today, they have accepted this is an attempt to get

:09:20.:09:23.

around employment law and they are worried about increasing cost and

:09:23.:09:32.

wages bills. That is a massive concern to me. Are you saying that

:09:32.:09:36.

safety is at risk? Absolutely, I am saying that safety is potentially

:09:36.:09:45.

at risk. In 1987, the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster happened.

:09:45.:09:49.

We have learned a lot from that disaster since then. Lots of

:09:49.:09:52.

employment and health and safety legislation has found its way onto

:09:52.:10:01.

the statute book as a result of that. You say you do not want to be

:10:01.:10:04.

scare mongering, but you said today that you would not sail on one of

:10:04.:10:07.

these ferries if they were registered like this, you would not

:10:07.:10:10.

risk your safety. Isn't that irresponsible? It is not

:10:10.:10:20.
:10:20.:10:25.

irresponsible, I mean what I have I have had reassurances from the

:10:25.:10:28.

management today that they do not intend to sack any workers, but I

:10:28.:10:31.

am concerned that this is about driving costs down which can only

:10:31.:10:35.

have one result. But we are trying to attract people to Hull, should

:10:35.:10:44.

they register in the Bahamas or move out of Hull? There is a ferry

:10:44.:10:47.

terminal in Hull, I doubt very much that P&O are planning to do

:10:47.:10:55.

anything but sail from Hull. But it is very concerning to me for the

:10:55.:11:01.

reasons that I have talked about. But P&O need to do all they can to

:11:01.:11:04.

survive. P&O told me that this is an attempt to get around employment

:11:04.:11:14.
:11:14.:11:16.

laws. That is very worrying to me. Thank you very much indeed. Do you

:11:16.:11:26.
:11:26.:11:31.

agree or disagree with those The girlfriend of a man who died

:11:31.:11:34.

after leaving a Lincoln nightclub has told an inquest that door staff

:11:34.:11:36.

ignored her warnings that he wasn't able to breathe. 23-year-old

:11:36.:11:39.

William Pleasants was removed by bouncers from the Engine Shed venue

:11:39.:11:42.

three years ago after getting into an argument. Victoria Nichol told

:11:42.:11:45.

the inquest in Lincoln that Mr Pleasants wasn't put into the

:11:45.:11:48.

recovery position until emergency services arrived at the scene. The

:11:48.:11:58.
:11:58.:12:01.

More than 10 areas of the Court of Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire

:12:01.:12:05.

have been proposed for special protection from dredging, and

:12:05.:12:12.

pollution. The Government says it has had delays on advice.

:12:12.:12:17.

There were major hold ups during tonight's rush-hour as bomb

:12:17.:12:22.

disposal experts dealt with the suspect object. Dodington ward was

:12:22.:12:28.

closed after the object was uncovered. It was revealed to be

:12:28.:12:33.

scrap-metal. A 16-year-old from Hull says a

charity funded by Children In Need has transformed her life. Rachel

Lawson's attention deficit disorder led to a been bullied. That has

:12:44.:12:54.
:12:54.:12:59.

changed. Thanks to visit Bransholme Community Arts Enterprise.

:13:00.:13:06.

I live near Kingswood. I used to get bullied down my street. I have

:13:07.:13:14.

not been out to place since I was nine. That made me feel bad because

:13:14.:13:24.
:13:24.:13:26.

I felt I was isolated. When I was in year five, I was diagnosed with

:13:26.:13:32.

attention deficit disorder. I was treated like cannot weekend before

:13:32.:13:40.

that. It made me lose my confidence. It made everything like a living

:13:40.:13:47.

hell. I started going to a youth and media club at Bransholme

:13:47.:13:57.
:13:57.:13:58.

Community Arts Enterprise. It has helped me so much. We do lots of

:13:58.:14:05.

photography and to make stuff. are we doing today? We have

:14:05.:14:12.

costumes. This benefits the K Irons in ways that are beyond what can be

:14:12.:14:18.

described. The kids who come here, this is the only social thing they

:14:18.:14:28.
:14:28.:14:28.

do. I'm going to the club and it changes the way I feel. I do not

:14:28.:14:33.

have to worry about people thinking I am weird. Everyone here is the

:14:33.:14:43.

same. I have been able to meet new people. My confidence has built up.

:14:43.:14:51.

This club and the other clubs like it are really important. It helps

shot challenge. Here is the apology. Is then

:16:12.:16:20.

appalled on the line? I heard that. What do you mean has she got it

:16:20.:16:30.
:16:30.:16:33.

wrong? I got that or cast drawn. They headline it is one of variable

:16:33.:16:43.
:16:43.:16:48.

cloud. Sunshine will be fake. After days of dark skies, we had some sun.

:16:48.:16:56.

That has swept across all parts. I am sure we will not get it right

:16:56.:17:03.

tomorrow but we will try our best. This dry area is bringing moister

:17:03.:17:12.

and that is causing cloud to redevelop. It is colder than last

:17:12.:17:22.
:17:22.:17:41.

The sun will rise at 739. It will be a mixed bag in the morning. The

:17:41.:17:45.

cloud will come and go but there is every chance we will get these

:17:45.:17:55.
:17:55.:18:06.

breaks from time to time. Thursday looks nice. Quite a bit of sunshine

:18:06.:18:14.

coming through. It was the clouds called for going in the wrong

:18:14.:18:24.
:18:24.:18:27.

place? The weather goes wrong.

:18:27.:18:35.

Thanks for being in touch about the reduction of speed limits. Many

:18:35.:18:45.
:18:45.:19:15.

villages will see speed limits drop Thank you for doors.

Firefighters from Immingham have been testing their rescue skills at

:19:19.:19:27.

a quarry. They have been practising that more unusual scenarios

:19:27.:19:36.

involving water, mud and drops. Hard work and teamwork are vital

:19:36.:19:41.

during a rescue but it is not often that these men get the chance to

:19:41.:19:48.

practise saving lives. This team of fire fighters are using the site to

:19:48.:19:52.

try out their rescue skills and a number of situations. We are faced

:19:52.:19:59.

with lots of challenging muddy areas around the Humber. There are

:19:59.:20:07.

lots -- it there is lot of mud around. This is a or by four of raw

:20:07.:20:17.
:20:17.:20:18.

track. It is rough terrain. The fire fighters say these are perfect

:20:18.:20:23.

surroundings to test their skills. It gives us the chance to work in

:20:23.:20:28.

realistic environments. You get a sense of satisfaction that we eat

:20:28.:20:34.

you are trained to the best of your ability. These are the scenarios we

:20:34.:20:44.
:20:44.:20:44.

find people trapped in. This is Utopia. Training like this usually

:20:44.:20:49.

does not come cheap and with a tightening budget, they would not

:20:49.:20:53.

be able to afford it. The company that run the site has offered it

:20:53.:20:59.

for free for will stop we are offering something back to the

:20:59.:21:04.

locals by training for the fire brigade. It is hoped that the next

:21:04.:21:13.

time someone needs this help, this rescue service will be prepared.

:21:13.:21:17.

Yorkshire cricket has sacked three of its long-serving coaches

:21:17.:21:22.

following relegation from Division One. Martyn Moxon survives with the

:21:22.:21:27.

backing of the board and his team will be boosted by the addition of

:21:27.:21:35.

Australian Jason Gillespie. They have given me their support. I

:21:35.:21:42.

thank them for that support. There is no one more disappointed by has

:21:42.:21:48.

been relegated. Hull City say they plan to issue a statement about

:21:48.:21:54.

their manager's position this evening. It is expected to confirm

net Barmby as caretaker manager Anthony offer some clarity on Nigel

:22:00.:22:04.

Pearson's move. The one show presenter Matt Baker

:22:04.:22:09.

brought his epic Children In Need right shot Challenge tour part of

:22:09.:22:14.

the world today. This morning, he arrived in East Yorkshire before

:22:14.:22:24.
:22:24.:22:25.

heading to Lincolnshire. Through gritted teeth, Matt Baker

:22:25.:22:31.

is making steady progress. His challenge briefly stopping or

:22:31.:22:41.
:22:41.:22:41.

unimportant break in Goole. It has been the most difficult day of the

:22:41.:22:48.

challenge so far. Here when a few familiar faces, his grandfather and

:22:48.:22:58.
:22:58.:22:59.

his sister who lives in Hull. feeling that fatigue now. If he

:22:59.:23:07.

says he will do something, he will do it. If he is on crutches, he

:23:07.:23:15.

will make it. Every day has had challenges, the miles, injuries. I

:23:15.:23:24.

have been up and down. Pushing two extremes is what Matt Baker is all

:23:24.:23:31.

about. As a gymnast, he represented England. As a Blue Peter presenter,

:23:31.:23:41.
:23:41.:23:41.

he broke records. On strictly, he danced his way to the final. As in

:23:41.:23:49.

Goole this morning, supporters have been out in force. It is fantastic.

:23:49.:23:56.

He can consume 9,000 calories a day and look like that, I am jealous.

:23:56.:24:00.

The support is unbelievable. People have been lining the streets from

:24:00.:24:09.

here to end borough and have been throwing money at me. Along the way,

:24:09.:24:15.

Matt has collected passengers. It makes the right shop feel like the

:24:15.:24:21.

brakes are on. He is now heading for Lincolnshire and the flatter

:24:21.:24:31.
:24:31.:24:32.

landscape should prove easier. Matter is expected in linking later.

:24:32.:24:39.

Where is he? He should be here by now. It has been an incredibly

:24:39.:24:45.

difficult day. We have heard he is in a bit of pain. This challenge is

:24:46.:24:50.

proving more difficult than many people had got. When he arrives,

:24:50.:24:57.

there is a big crowd here. He is our national president and we

:24:58.:25:06.

cannot wait to greet him. What you think about what he has done?

:25:06.:25:15.

amount he has raised his amazing. Let us try to make a million.

:25:15.:25:19.

is confident he can make that Television Centre on Friday. He has

:25:19.:25:26.

already raised almost half a million times. As he continues to

:25:26.:25:36.
:25:36.:25:40.

more or, he will no doubt be hoping to raise more. Let us hope they do

:25:40.:25:46.

not have to wait too long. A teenager from Scunthorpe has made

:25:46.:25:50.

it through to the final of Australia a's version of the X

:25:50.:25:55.

Factor. Reece Mastin moved to Adelaide with his parents 10 years

:25:55.:26:02.

ago. He is now through to the finals which will be held on Monday

:26:02.:26:12.
:26:12.:26:12.

night. Good luck to them. Let us have a recap.

:26:12.:26:17.

A backlash against the rise of fuel prices, more than 100 MPs backed a

:26:18.:26:22.

petition. That the plague that states how

:26:22.:26:32.
:26:32.:26:34.

much our children should eat. Top temperatures of 11 Celsius. Our

:26:34.:26:39.

response coming in on that radical scheme to shut -- Cup Children's of

:26:39.:26:49.
:26:49.:26:59.

Another says it is not be any use telling children what to eat. It is

:26:59.:27:09.

the parents' fault. It needs to start pre-school.
