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

:00:04.:00:08.

One in ten out of work. Unemployment figures hit hardest in

:00:08.:00:12.

Yorkshire and the Humber. It comes on the same day as workers

:00:12.:00:15.

fighting to save their jobs get support from the Shadow Defence

:00:15.:00:18.

Secretary. These are generations of workers

:00:18.:00:25.

who have helped build remarkable pieces of engineering ingenuity.

:00:25.:00:29.

The country is proud of them, they shouldn't be dumped on the dole.

:00:29.:00:33.

Told to pay more than �20,000 after putting the lives of staff and

:00:33.:00:38.

students at risk. Taking over at Hull City. Nick

:00:38.:00:41.

Barmby is named as their caretaker manager.

:00:41.:00:44.

And TV presenter Matt Baker continues with his Children in Need

:00:44.:00:54.
:00:54.:00:57.

rickshaw challenge. And don't forget your detailed weather

:00:57.:01:03.

forecast in the next 15 minutes. Unemployment is at its highest for

:01:03.:01:06.

a generation, and the latest figures show the Yorkshire and

:01:06.:01:12.

Humber region has been hit harder than anywhere else in the country.

:01:12.:01:15.

The government has blamed a large rise in unemployment here on the

:01:15.:01:20.

economic crisis sweeping the euro- zone. Of the 129,000 people added

:01:20.:01:23.

to the national jobless total between July and September, 50,000

:01:23.:01:31.

were in the Yorkshire and Humber. One in 10 of the adult population

:01:31.:01:34.

in the region is now without work. The number of people claiming

:01:34.:01:37.

Jobseeker's Allowance in Hull is more than twice the national

:01:37.:01:42.

average. In Grimsby, it's 50% percent above the national average.

:01:42.:01:45.

The Employment Minister told BBC Look North the government was doing

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

everything possible to create new jobs. The disappointment in

:01:55.:01:59.

Yorkshire and Humber and other towns like them across the region

:01:59.:02:04.

is that a few months ago, we were seeing genuine recruitment in the

:02:04.:02:08.

market. As a result of the crisis, we have seen a drop in business

:02:08.:02:12.

confidence and the labour market turning in the wrong direction. We

:02:12.:02:15.

need to focus on getting the economy in the region are growing

:02:15.:02:19.

again. That is why so much of the many attractive through the

:02:19.:02:25.

Regional Growth Fund is coming to Yorkshire and the Humber.

:02:25.:02:28.

It comes on the day that almost 900 workers facing redundancy in East

:02:28.:02:32.

Yorkshire were visited by the Shadow Defence Secretary. Labour's

:02:32.:02:36.

Jim Murphy was at BAE systems in Brough to meet the affected workers.

:02:36.:02:39.

The cuts were announced in September when BAE said it would no

:02:39.:02:49.
:02:49.:02:52.

longer be manufacturing the hawk jet in East Yorkshire. The shadow

:02:52.:02:56.

defence secretary arrived at the British Aerospace factory with

:02:56.:03:00.

words of support this morning for the 899 workers set to lose their

:03:00.:03:07.

jobs. Many whose photographs and stories have been listed in a book.

:03:07.:03:11.

33 years. You must have started here straight after school.

:03:11.:03:16.

mandate here where, for more than 40 years, the Hawk Gent has been

:03:16.:03:21.

built. Production which is believed to have been stopped for no good

:03:21.:03:24.

reason. The Government has got to look at what it can do about

:03:24.:03:27.

changing its approach to defence investment and spending. The

:03:28.:03:31.

company will have to look again at its plans. The workforce have made

:03:31.:03:36.

a country proud. The end of manufacturing here was announced at

:03:36.:03:40.

the end of September. A decision much managers have blamed on

:03:40.:03:45.

falling orders. Protesters have raised concerns. A week on Thursday,

:03:45.:03:52.

it has now sparked a parliamentary debate. In December, workers to put

:03:52.:03:57.

-- in 10 to lobby Parliament. are hoping to get our wives,

:03:57.:04:05.

partners, or go friends, children to take part. It sums it up. This

:04:05.:04:12.

is a family photo. Some men have got a long service at the site.

:04:12.:04:15.

Shadow Defence Secretary met the team poor, in October, cycled to

:04:15.:04:22.

the Labour and Conservative Party conferences. Some people just think,

:04:22.:04:26.

that is it, it is the end. My job is no more. Other people are

:04:26.:04:30.

thinking, let's do something about this. We can make a difference. We

:04:30.:04:35.

carry on fighting as long as we can. It is hard to say how much

:04:35.:04:39.

influence today's visit by the shadow defence secretary will have.

:04:39.:04:44.

Some see it as nothing more than a gesture. For a desperate workforce,

:04:44.:04:48.

it seems that all support she is welcome.

:04:48.:04:52.

I spoke with Jim Murphy after his visit to Brough. I asked him what

:04:52.:05:01.

the workers there had to say to him. They are pretty approach of all

:05:01.:05:05.

they have done over the years. They have changed as times have changed.

:05:05.:05:09.

They have changed their shift patterns and modernised their work

:05:09.:05:13.

practices. They are really annoyed at that after the redundancies in

:05:14.:05:19.

the summer, there is a new round of redundancies. There are more than

:05:19.:05:24.

annoyed. They are very determined. They will not go down without a

:05:24.:05:30.

fight. Is your visit today a bit of a gimmick? You are in opposition.

:05:30.:05:35.

There is nothing you can do. unions and management asked to meet

:05:35.:05:39.

me. I was pleased to do that. More importantly, we have got to take

:05:39.:05:44.

that case to the country. There is a big debate in the House of

:05:44.:05:49.

Commons where the case will be made very strongly. He do not think this

:05:49.:05:52.

story is over. You think there is more to come. What can be done to

:05:52.:05:56.

reverse the decision? There is a long way to go. When the

:05:56.:06:00.

announcement was made, some people thought that was it. There is no

:06:00.:06:04.

space for belligerence from the company. We cannot have a

:06:04.:06:10.

consultation that ends at the same point when the announcement started.

:06:10.:06:14.

The unions and beast work force are making a strong case. They will

:06:14.:06:18.

come to Parliament. I think the company should change its mind.

:06:18.:06:23.

This is it comes as it is announced that unemployment sure is one in 10.

:06:23.:06:26.

The Tories say this is a legacy of when you were in power. What would

:06:26.:06:30.

you do to get people back into work? We have got to render its

:06:30.:06:35.

problems year. It is a very bad day for the whole country. We have got

:06:35.:06:39.

over one million young people out of work. Sadly, in Hull, the

:06:39.:06:44.

problem is possibly the worst in the hall of England. We would

:06:44.:06:47.

introduce a scheme called the future jobs fund which would give

:06:47.:06:52.

young people the chance to get back into work, to get the skills, the

:06:52.:06:56.

confidence, to earn a living, to earn a wage. Surely that is a

:06:56.:06:59.

better thing to do them having a million young people on the dole,

:06:59.:07:04.

not paying taxes, taking benefit. There has to be a more sensible way

:07:04.:07:08.

of doing it. The Government should use today as an opportunity to

:07:08.:07:12.

think again. People have all worked at Brough do not care who is in

:07:12.:07:17.

power were, as long as their jobs are safe. Could that happen?

:07:17.:07:22.

think there is a chance that many of the jobs at's could be saved.

:07:22.:07:26.

The company has to change its mind, but the Government has to come

:07:26.:07:30.

involved. It cannot just watch on the TV screens or read about it.

:07:30.:07:35.

They have to do whatever is necessary. No option should be

:07:35.:07:38.

taken off the table in terms of happened these people. That

:07:38.:07:42.

involves the Government been much more active than they are at the

:07:42.:07:46.

moment. I'm sure you have a view on this.

:07:46.:07:51.

One in ten people in this part of the world are now out of work. Are

:07:51.:07:54.

you one of them? Does that figure surprise you? We've heard what

:07:54.:07:58.

Labour thinks is the answer, what do you think needs to be done?

:07:58.:08:08.
:08:08.:08:19.

Please get in touch. The details In a moment:

:08:19.:08:21.

How Children in Need is helping disabled youngsters break into the

:08:21.:08:30.

The University of Lincoln has been fined �10,000 after admitting

:08:30.:08:33.

putting the lives of thousands of staff and students at risk of

:08:33.:08:37.

contamination from asbestos. The Health and Safety Executive has

:08:37.:08:39.

criticised the university for failing to implement adequate

:08:39.:08:44.

precautions. It's also been landed with a bill for almost �13,000 in

:08:44.:08:54.
:08:54.:08:55.

costs. While the University of Lincoln is one of the minister in

:08:55.:09:01.

the country, some of its buildings are very old and many are full of

:09:01.:09:05.

asbestos. The Health and Safety Executive were alerted by a

:09:05.:09:09.

lecturer for got locked in a room and noticed grey dust around the

:09:09.:09:14.

handle. This was in February of last year. Lincoln magistrates'

:09:14.:09:17.

court here today that the University of Lincoln had been made

:09:17.:09:22.

aware by independent asbestos assessors back in 2006 that

:09:22.:09:27.

remedial work was needed on the doors in the area. But nothing had

:09:27.:09:31.

been done. The magistrates at the University's early guilty plea was

:09:31.:09:39.

taken into account and they reduced its fine from �15,000 to �10,000.

:09:39.:09:43.

The actual offence today alleged was the failure to implement the

:09:43.:09:46.

plans that they did have in place and to have suitable arrangements

:09:46.:09:51.

to do so. Asbestos was a proper building material until it was

:09:51.:09:56.

banned in 1999. It can be found in ceiling tiles, pipe insulation and

:09:56.:10:01.

boilers. Asbestos material in good condition is safe, but can become

:10:01.:10:05.

airborne when the materials are damaged. If people breathe it in,

:10:05.:10:10.

it can cause serious diseases which are responsible for around 4,000

:10:10.:10:15.

deaths a year. It is a very good and safe material if it is in good

:10:15.:10:20.

condition, if it is sealed and sound. When you just did it, it

:10:20.:10:27.

needs removing properly, you have got to control any release and do

:10:27.:10:31.

with through certain methods. You cannot knock it down by hand. You

:10:31.:10:37.

have got to treated with respect. He the risk increases according to

:10:37.:10:44.

the degree of exposed here to asbestos fibres, how heavy the of

:10:44.:10:46.

exposure was a loss of the length of time. This is a particular

:10:46.:10:54.

concern to people have had heavy from the University have resigned

:10:54.:10:58.

since the incidence and all buildings have now been made safe.

:10:58.:11:01.

And Vicky is at the Magistrates' court for us now. Vicky, what has

:11:01.:11:08.

Lincoln University had to say about this? Nobody has been made

:11:08.:11:11.

available for an interview, but they have released a statement

:11:11.:11:15.

saying that the health and safety of all of its students, staff and

:11:15.:11:19.

visitors remain of the utmost importance. They say that

:11:19.:11:24.

university officials co-ordinated fully during the Health and Safety

:11:24.:11:26.

Executive investigation and have continued to co-operate fully since

:11:26.:11:30.

then. They say that the policies and procedures have all been

:11:30.:11:36.

updated, they have been modernised and that now, all the regulations

:11:36.:11:42.

surrounding the premises are now fully compliant.

The family of a father of 10 who was murdered in his own home in

Lincoln have made a renewed appeal for help in finding his killers.

:11:50.:11:52.

70-year-old Sonny Grey died following a violent attack at the

:11:52.:11:57.

end of last month. His family say he was a loveable rogue with a big

:11:57.:12:01.

heart and they say they want anyone with any information to speak to

:12:01.:12:03.

the police. A decision is due shortly on

:12:03.:12:06.

whether to approve plans for a 220- berth marina at Cherry Willingham

:12:06.:12:10.

near Lincoln. The development would give access to moorings from the

:12:10.:12:15.

River Witham and includes plans for a hotel and restaurant.

Tommy Patrick has big ambitions of working in theatre. And now, thanks

:12:27.:12:30.

to a charity which receives money from Children in Need, he's a step

:12:30.:12:34.

closer to that. The Shipmates drama group in Goole is specifically for

:12:34.:12:44.
:12:44.:12:49.

children with disabilities, as Tommy explains.

:12:49.:12:55.

I am 13 years old. I have Down's syndrome. I want to do acting when

:12:55.:13:05.

I grow up. We provide inclusive music, dance and drama activities

:13:05.:13:08.

for children with learning difficulties and autistic spectrum

:13:08.:13:18.
:13:18.:13:18.

conditions. It is helping me learn how to act. I really enjoy acting.

really come on leaps and bounds. Peter Pan was very fan. I was one

:14:06.:14:40.

If it wasn't for this, he would probably be sat at home. I would

:14:40.:14:46.

have nothing to do without it. I love being here so much. Tommy

caught on camera from the 1,800. The crowd is on hand to support

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:49.

Tonight's photograph is of Flamborough. Thank-you for that.

:15:49.:15:56.

Another photo tomorrow. I think you're going to point out

:15:56.:15:59.

that the forecast went rather well today!

:15:59.:16:05.

I do not think you should be gloating.

:16:05.:16:12.

I have not had one complement! Cloudy skies will clear. That is

:16:12.:16:17.

the main focus of the forecast. We will have a south-westerly breeze

:16:17.:16:22.

tomorrow, something we have not been used to for the last few weeks.

:16:22.:16:27.

It might take Lincoln all morning to brighten up. East Yorkshire

:16:27.:16:33.

might see the sunshine in the morning. By the weekend, we will be

:16:33.:16:40.

back to square one. There could be a lot of cloud from the Continent.

:16:40.:16:45.

The clouds have broken across Lincolnshire, so it is quite chilly.

:16:45.:16:49.

We have temperatures down to five degrees in Holbeach. It looks as

:16:49.:16:55.

though these breaks will be short- lived. The trend is for cloud to

:16:55.:16:58.

increase from the south-west. It could be thick enough for some

:16:58.:17:04.

patchy rain in places. I think about will be small. Quite a few

:17:04.:17:14.
:17:14.:17:16.

places will stay dry. The sun will rise in the morning at 7:31am,

:17:16.:17:26.
:17:26.:17:29.

setting at fora 1pm. Perhaps there will be some dampness in the air.

:17:29.:17:33.

That south-westerly breeze Brighton's East Yorkshire, then

:17:33.:17:41.

Lincolnshire brightens up a early afternoon. It is a big improvement

:17:41.:17:46.

on the way. By the afternoon, most of those will be basking in the

:17:46.:17:53.

autumn sunshine. It will be mild in Hull at 12. Friday is cloudy, mild

:17:53.:18:00.

and windy. It looks as though the weekend will be mostly dry.

:18:00.:18:07.

Some viewers have found a way of getting rid of you. Look at this.

:18:07.:18:14.

It says, if I am white, it is raining -- if I am aware it, it is

:18:14.:18:19.

raining. It is very small!

:18:19.:18:24.

After days of speculation, Nick Barmby has been officially named as

:18:24.:18:30.

Hull City's new caretaker manager. The 37-year-old is taking over from

:18:30.:18:33.

Nigel Pearson, who's returned to take charge at Leicester City.

:18:33.:18:36.

Barmby's played for the Tigers for more than seven years, but he's got

:18:36.:18:40.

no experience as a manager. Sarah Corker has been to Barmby's old

:18:40.:18:48.

school in Hull to find out more. For many, it is a child dream, to

:18:48.:18:55.

manage your local football club. At Nick Barmby's old-school, we asked

:18:55.:18:59.

some aspiring managers of the future for some words of wisdom for

:18:59.:19:09.
:19:09.:19:11.

the new boss. Get good players, so we win more matches. But a good

:19:11.:19:16.

team up. Some good defence. Ask for a load of money and bring in new

:19:16.:19:23.

players. Get the fans behind us. With more than 23 caps for England,

:19:23.:19:26.

Barmby has plenty of experience on the pitch, playing for a number of

:19:26.:19:33.

top clubs, including Liverpool and Everton. After joining Hull City,

:19:33.:19:38.

helping the Tigers to promotion to the Premiership, he has become a

:19:38.:19:42.

favourite. With little managerial experience, some feel his

:19:42.:19:47.

appointment is a gamble. One person backing him for great things is his

:19:48.:19:52.

former boss. Not only has he been a fantastic servant for the club, I

:19:52.:19:57.

think the players will respond very well to him. I wish the club every

:19:57.:20:01.

success. The farmers say they are willing to give him a chance.

:20:01.:20:06.

Somebody has to start somewhere. -- the fans say they are willing to

:20:06.:20:11.

give them a chance. You learn on the job. A after a turbulent week

:20:11.:20:18.

here, what many fans now want to know is will Nick Barmby continue

:20:18.:20:22.

playing and become a player manager, what does this signal the end of

:20:22.:20:26.

his career on the pitch? His first challenge will be keeping their

:20:26.:20:31.

promotion push going away at Derby this weekend.

:20:31.:20:34.

P and O Ferries have rejected claims by a Hull MP that they could

:20:34.:20:36.

compromise safety by re-registering two Hull-based ferries in The

:20:36.:20:39.

Bahamas. The East Hull MP Karl Turner claimed on last night's

:20:39.:20:42.

programme that the move will mean the company can get round health

:20:42.:20:45.

and safety laws. P and O say this is simply wrong and they'll

:20:45.:20:54.

continue to abide by international laws on maritime safety.

:20:54.:21:04.
:21:04.:21:40.

And we've had plenty of responses It's been announced that Prince

:21:40.:21:42.

Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit Lincolnshire in two

:21:42.:21:47.

weeks time. The royal couple will have a tour of Lincoln Cathedral,

:21:47.:21:50.

to see restoration work currently under way. Prince Charles will then

:21:50.:21:52.

meet young farmers at Riseholme Agricultural college, and the

:21:52.:22:01.

couple will meet up again at the Cholmeley Arms near Grantham.

:22:01.:22:06.

will be really exciting. Hopefully, a lot of people come out onto the

:22:06.:22:11.

street and welcome them into their village. You do not think of them

:22:11.:22:16.

coming to a little village pub, especially one as small as this. We

:22:16.:22:19.

are delighted. That will be a big day.

:22:19.:22:23.

The search is on tonight find the owners of these, a forgotten set of

:22:23.:22:25.

Lincolnshire photos dating back to the late 1800s. The old picture

:22:25.:22:29.

album was found at a tip in Louth, and is thought to feature a family

:22:29.:22:32.

thought to be living somewhere near Scunthorpe. As Crispin Rolfe

:22:32.:22:42.
:22:42.:22:44.

reports, the challenge now is to find their descendants. I think

:22:44.:22:47.

they are working people. You can see the back of what looks like a

:22:47.:22:50.

row of terraced houses. Where, when and most importantly

:22:50.:22:53.

who. The questions Chris Belton is asking after finding this album at

:22:53.:23:00.

a recycling centre in Louth. She's set herself the challenge of

:23:00.:23:08.
