Good evening, thank you for joining The headlines.


The BBC learns that a fault has been identified in the type of


ejector seat used by the Red Arrows. After 15 years, the hunt for a


missing man from Lincolnshire. You are in limbo, you cannot grieve


properly, because you have not found a body.


Also, the turbines being slowed down in high winds because they are


too noisy. And, we reveal the winner of the


sporting unsung hero award. And, joined me for your forecast,


Good evening. We have learned that a fault has been identified in the


type of ejector seat used by the Red Arrows. Sean Cunningham died


when his ejector seat propelled him out of his station the plane on


eighth November. In a Civil Aviation Authority document seen by


us, engineers highlight a problem with a small part of the seat


mechanism. The document raises the concern


that the Parachute on Sean Cunningham's ejector seat failed to


deploy a because of a fault with a shackle inside his jet. If that


system does not work smoothly, it will delay the opening of the


parachute, which might mean it will not open in time to allow survival.


The Civil Aviation Authority have issued this emergency directives


for all civil aircraft fitted with the same ejector seat as the Red


Arrows. It instructs owners to make a series of adjustments to the


seeds before take-off because of their problem with the release of


the parachute. The Civil Aviation Authority says it issued the


warning after learning of a problem in Sean Cunningham's plane. Ejector


seats have posed a problem in the past. In July, cracks were found in


some of them, and the entire fleet was branded them. It is supposed to


be the pilot's saviour, activated as a last resort, rockets are set


off under the seat, and a parachute should bring the pilot safely to


the ground. The manufacturer told The even when this investigation is


over, the leading aviation experts say the Red Arrows' ageing planes


produce a long-term problem. It is a long shot to say they MoD will


have to find the money to replace the planes. Within 18 months,


unless they have decided to buy new planes, you have got to think that


the game is up. They are professional aviators at the top of


their game, and by a process of osmosis, that would cost the Royal


Air Force. They deliver more than the displays. The MoD says the


Squadron will continue to operate with the Jets until 2018, and would


not speculate further. While the investigation continues, the RAF's


fleet of these planes remains grounded.


Inside Out will have a report on the future of the Red Arrows on BBC


One in just under an hour. In a moment, once the cutting-edge


of design, demolition begins on a 1960s multi-storey car park in


Scunthorpe. They wind farm in East Yorkshire is


so noisy that the turbines are being deliberately slowed down in


strong winds and that night. Officials have installed equipment


to monitor noise levels near Bridlington. Wind energy has also


come under attack from royalty, the Duke of Edinburgh reportedly


described wind turbines as absolutely useless. Their


supporters, he said, of believing in fairy-tales.


They are seen by some as the solution to our energy needs, but


to others, they are a nuisance. For John Osk, the turbines are keeping


him up at night. It is like a low- level raw. My mother, who is hard


of hearing, she has heard them. It is a constant presence, if you're


not careful, it could dominate your life. Regulations say sound coming


from a wind turbine should not be more than 40 decibels near a house,


about the same as the hum of a fridge, but sound knowledge and


equipment set up in his back garden found it was louder. House officers


found that, during high wind, the noises coming from these wind


turbines exceeded the noise limits allowed, so now new conditions have


been put in place. The turbines are slowed down. That is when the wind


is too strong. But noise pollution is just one complaint. An ugly blot


on the landscape is another. The government has to meet its


renewable energy targets, 20% by 2020, which means more wind farms


for East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. A lot of people are in favour of


wind turbines, they know what they stand for, we can look at it and we


know it is producing energy. That one is turning fairly slowly, but


it is still producing enough to power 2000 homes. Back here, the


new owners of the farm are continuing to monitor the noise


level. But for John, this source of green energy comes at too high a


price. I spoke to Charles Anglin from


Renewables UK. That is an organisation which speaks for the


wind turbine industry. I asked how the noise problem is being dealt


with. There are 3000 turbines onshore in


the UK. In 300 different farms. On average, they are working 85% of


the time, that is 22 million hours of wind farm operation every year.


But we get complaints, saying that they are noisy, some people see


them not working when they should be working. In the last three years,


despite over 60 million hours of operation, there has been precisely


one noise complaint upheld against wind farms. However, where there


are issues, where people are concerned about noise, our members


strive to be considerate neighbours, good neighbours, so if there are


issues, they respond to them. This example is good, a conscientious


developer, listening to local residents, even though there is no


statutory level of nuisance, has agreed to moderate the operation of


the wind farm as a result. That is something that should be welcomed


and commended. The Duke of Edinburgh, he said they are


absolutely useless, and that supporters are believing in fairy-


tales. Many people will think he has got a good point. Those fairy-


tales of operating and Paris and 3 million homes, we are thus placing


lots of carbon dioxide every year. A quarter of a power stations are


given to close over next decade. We can either build power stations


which use imported gas, from places like Russia and Iran and Algeria


that do not like us very much, or we could have clean, green, UK wind


energy. That is a better choice. Was he wrong? I am not going to


comment on what he may have said in a private conversation, but I know


that this works, it is working now, and it will work in the future.


Let's throw this one open. We would like your views. Was the Duke of


Edinburgh right? Can they provide an answer to our increasing energy


needs? Should we learn to live with them, even if they do at times


disturb the peace the countryside? We will have some views before we


finish at 7pm. A pathologist has told the inquest


that a man would not have suffered a cardiac arrest which led to his


death if he had not been restrained by door staff in Lincoln. Professor


Guy Rutty was giving evidence at the inquest of William Pleasants,


who died outside the Engine Shed in October 2008. Professor Rutty told


the jury that William died because of their lack of oxygen to his


brain, caused by his cardia caressed.


An investigation is under way after a fire at Claxby Hall. 12 crews


were involved in fighting the flames, which have destroyed most


of the reef. It took 65 firefighters more than three hours


to control the fire. It is 15 years to the day since


Michael fewer died. He went missing, having told his family that he


believe that he was murdered, but they have no clues where his body


could be. His sister told our reporter about the torment of not


knowing what has happened. This is him when he was about eight


years old, he was just a normal little boy, growing up. Treasured


memories of a younger brother, much loved and still desperately missed.


It is exactly 15 years since Michael she would dine disappeared


from his home. He was 32 years old, and he had a daughter, who was then


aged eight. His sister has described his disappearance as a


mystery. 15 years on, she is still determined to establish exactly


what happened. You are in limbo. You cannot grieve, because you have


not found a body. You are still looking for him. With that glimmer


of hope that he might still be alive. It was here in the


Lincolnshire village where Michael lived and was last seen on 21st


November 1996. Every team missing persons inquiry was launched, but


three years later, after new evidence emerged, the circumstances


of the case changed. Lincolnshire Police launched a murder


investigation. While several people have been interviewed, no charges


have ever been brought. Police investigations have since revealed


that Michael had been concern for his safety, telling friends of his


concerns on the night he disappeared. He was clearly fearful


on that evening to, who he was going to meet. We do not know where


that was. There has been no trace of him since that time. On the 15th


anniversary of his disappearance, his family believes people may


still be withholding important Thank you are watching

It is a depressing headline for the next 24 hours. A weather front


pushing in tomorrow. But after that, we will go rid of all that dull


weather. A big change coming by the middle of this week. End up the


short term, it is more of the same of. We have already got some fog


developing in places. It is a misty evening across all parts of


Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. There could be some patchy rain in places


as well. Yet again, frost-free, lowest temperatures of the six or

you do not see it clearly. Its not the first time it has been


mentioned, I will try harder. Sport now, Damian Johnson's here


with news of a winning start for Nick Barmby as the new Hull City


manager. How did the team perform for the new boss?


Very well. They won. A goalscoring return for Cameron Stewart. Stewart


scored the second goal in his first game back after a serious knee


injury. The win takes the Tigers back into the play off places.

fantastic. He would take charge again for the visit of Burnley on


Saturday. But he is just the caretaker, what


is the chance of is taking charge on a permanent basis?


Pretty good. You have got to fancy his chances of getting it.


The Scunthorpe United manager was critical of his players after they

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, we look out for sport's unsung heroes as


part of the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year award. One


candidate is 74-year-old Tony Bradwell who introduces disabled


people in Grimsby and Cleethorpes to all sorts of sports from


shooting to fishing, from cycling to tenpin bowling. I've been along


to meet him. Just Tibet like that. Tony Bradwell


helps about 60 people every week with a range of disabilities to


enjoy sport. Since 2007, he has spent five days a week, 52 weeks a


year volunteering for Foresight. The charity is like a family and he


is like the father. When I first started, they would not speak to


each other, now they never shut up. Tory either -- tory either

Foresight, we will never find a volunteer that gives us what he


does. At any back does not know that he has won the award. He knows


nothing about it. It will be a bit of a surprise for them. Is there an


Tony Bradwell care? You have won the Unsung Hero Award.


Congratulations. Thank you very much. You do terrific work, I had


been hearing all about it. What is your reaction? What is the reaction,


everyone? Well done. You can send The family of a teenager from


Scunthorpe are crossing their fingers after watching him perform

his family six years ago. This morning, those back in North


Lincolnshire watched his performance in the final of the


reality show. They now face an anxious wait to see if he's won.


The results aren't revealed until tomorrow.


Demolition is due to start on a crumbling 1960s' multi-storey car


park in Scunthorpe. When it was built, it was at the cutting edge


of architecture, but as Simon Spark reports, town planners soon turned


against such modern designs. Another sign of the Times... They


were the cutting edge buildings of their day. Somewhere to park your


car. But Scunthorpe is just about to lose its most iconic car park.


It has been around since their early 1970s, but demolition has


already begun after that building was found to be structurally


unstable. It is a concrete construction. It is one we would


have liked to keep. Should Scunthorpe are we sad Butler-Sloss?


It was built in the brutalist style of architecture. A stab both loved


and hated. It has been part of our landscape for decades. In Sheffield,


instead of demolishing these flats, they have been renovated. This car


park is being featured in films. This man thinks they have had their


day. They must have looked nice against Mediterranean the blue


skies, but in England, at him winter, they look pretty awful.


What would people prefer? Some decent of shops. All be get his


power under shops. Another piece of local history gone. At the moment,


there are no plans for what will take its place. People just talk


that what ever does take its place, it will be good for the town.


How is the demolition going? Things are progressing pretty


quickly. Things started about 30 minutes ago. This is happening at


night to minimise disruption to shoppers and businesses. What we


are witnessing here is set -- is they changing face of Scunthorpe.


It is the end of an architectural era for this type of car park.


Thank you very much. More than half a million pounds has


been raised in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire for Children in Need.

Congratulations, you have done a fantastic job.


They were wonderful. Well done to them. And well done to all the


other choirs that took part. Let's get a recap of the national


and regional headlines. Milly Dowler's mother gives evidence


against those she believes hacked into her daughter's phone,


describing the moment when she thought that messages had been


deleted by Milly herself. The BBC learns that a fault has


been identified in the type of ejector seat used by the Red Arrows.


Dull and damp tomorrow. But mild. A big response on the subject of


wind turbines. Craig says, they create jobs and are clean,


renewable energy. This one, I have stood right next


to those turbines, they do not make a noise.


Would the Duke of Edinburgh complain if his lights went out?
