Good evening, thank you for joining The headlines.

:00:07.:00:12.

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

:00:12.:00:17.

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

:00:17.:00:22.

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

:00:22.:00:26.

properly, because you have not found a body.

:00:26.:00:29.

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

:00:29.:00:36.

too noisy. And, we reveal the winner of the

:00:36.:00:40.

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

:00:41.:00:50.
:00:51.:00:56.

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

:00:56.:01:01.

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

:01:01.:01:06.

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

:01:06.:01:11.

eighth November. In a Civil Aviation Authority document seen by

:01:11.:01:14.

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

:01:14.:01:23.

mechanism. The document raises the concern

:01:23.:01:28.

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

:01:28.:01:34.

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

:01:34.:01:39.

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

:01:39.:01:46.

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

:01:46.:01:50.

The Civil Aviation Authority have issued this emergency directives

:01:50.:01:55.

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

:01:55.:01:59.

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

:01:59.:02:03.

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

:02:03.:02:07.

the parachute. The Civil Aviation Authority says it issued the

:02:07.:02:13.

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

:02:13.:02:17.

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

:02:17.:02:23.

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

:02:23.:02:31.

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

:02:31.:02:35.

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

:02:35.:02:45.
:02:45.:02:51.

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

:02:51.:02:56.

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

:02:56.:03:00.

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

:03:00.:03:05.

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

:03:05.:03:09.

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

:03:10.:03:15.

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

:03:15.:03:20.

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

:03:20.:03:28.

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

:03:28.:03:33.

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

:03:33.:03:38.

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

:03:38.:03:45.

fleet of these planes remains grounded.

:03:45.:03:50.

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

:03:50.:03:59.

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

:03:59.:04:04.

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

:04:04.:04:09.

Scunthorpe. They wind farm in East Yorkshire is

:04:09.:04:13.

so noisy that the turbines are being deliberately slowed down in

:04:13.:04:16.

strong winds and that night. Officials have installed equipment

:04:16.:04:22.

to monitor noise levels near Bridlington. Wind energy has also

:04:22.:04:26.

come under attack from royalty, the Duke of Edinburgh reportedly

:04:26.:04:32.

described wind turbines as absolutely useless. Their

:04:32.:04:35.

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

:04:35.:04:38.

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

:04:39.:04:46.

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

:04:46.:04:54.

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

:04:54.:05:02.

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

:05:02.:05:08.

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

:05:08.:05:11.

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

:05:11.:05:15.

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

:05:15.:05:22.

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

:05:22.:05:27.

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

:05:27.:05:31.

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

:05:31.:05:37.

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

:05:37.:05:42.

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

:05:42.:05:46.

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

:05:46.:05:51.

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

:05:51.:05:57.

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

:05:57.:06:01.

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

:06:01.:06:05.

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

:06:05.:06:09.

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

:06:09.:06:12.

new owners of the farm are continuing to monitor the noise

:06:12.:06:18.

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

:06:18.:06:25.

price. I spoke to Charles Anglin from

:06:25.:06:29.

Renewables UK. That is an organisation which speaks for the

:06:29.:06:36.

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

:06:36.:06:39.

with. There are 3000 turbines onshore in

:06:39.:06:47.

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

:06:47.:06:54.

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

:06:54.:06:58.

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

:06:58.:07:06.

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

:07:06.:07:10.

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

:07:10.:07:15.

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

:07:15.:07:23.

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

:07:23.:07:27.

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

:07:27.:07:34.

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

:07:34.:07:37.

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

:07:37.:07:42.

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

:07:42.:07:46.

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

:07:46.:07:51.

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

:07:51.:07:55.

absolutely useless, and that supporters are believing in fairy-

:07:55.:08:00.

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

:08:00.:08:07.

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

:08:07.:08:12.

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

:08:12.:08:18.

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

:08:18.:08:22.

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

:08:22.:08:29.

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

:08:29.:08:35.

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

:08:35.:08:40.

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

:08:40.:08:46.

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

:08:46.:08:51.

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

:08:51.:08:57.

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

:08:57.:09:01.

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

:09:01.:09:11.
:09:11.:09:19.

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

:09:19.:09:25.

finish at 7pm. A pathologist has told the inquest

:09:25.:09:29.

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

:09:30.:09:34.

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

:09:34.:09:38.

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

:09:38.:09:44.

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

:09:44.:09:48.

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

:09:48.:09:51.

brain, caused by his cardia caressed.

:09:51.:09:56.

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

:09:56.:10:00.

were involved in fighting the flames, which have destroyed most

:10:00.:10:03.

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

:10:04.:10:09.

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

:10:09.:10:13.

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

:10:13.:10:20.

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

:10:20.:10:25.

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

:10:25.:10:30.

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

:10:30.:10:35.

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

:10:35.:10:39.

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

:10:39.:10:45.

It is exactly 15 years since Michael she would dine disappeared

:10:45.:10:50.

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

:10:50.:10:56.

aged eight. His sister has described his disappearance as a

:10:56.:11:00.

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

:11:00.:11:05.

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

:11:05.:11:11.

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

:11:11.:11:16.

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

:11:16.:11:23.

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

:11:23.:11:27.

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

:11:27.:11:31.

three years later, after new evidence emerged, the circumstances

:11:31.:11:35.

of the case changed. Lincolnshire Police launched a murder

:11:35.:11:40.

investigation. While several people have been interviewed, no charges

:11:40.:11:45.

have ever been brought. Police investigations have since revealed

:11:45.:11:49.

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

:11:49.:11:52.

concerns on the night he disappeared. He was clearly fearful

:11:52.:11:58.

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

:11:58.:12:03.

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

:12:03.:12:06.

anniversary of his disappearance, his family believes people may

:12:06.:12:16.
:12:16.:12:23.

still be withholding important Thank you are watching

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

:13:54.:13:59.

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

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

:14:04.:14:11.

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

:14:11.:14:21.

Tomorrow, a grey start with fog and places. A little drizzle. During

across the north-west, but conditions will remain cloudy. A

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

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

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:44.

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

:15:44.:15:47.

Peter Dixon reports. It was a fairly low key arrival for

manager. It's not about me, it's about the players. Their attitude

:16:38.:16:43.

and their commitment was superb. You can see the passes and the play

:16:43.:16:46.

that we did. That is what these boys can do. I thought they were

:16:46.:16:55.

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

:16:55.:16:59.

Saturday. But he is just the caretaker, what

:16:59.:17:03.

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

:17:03.:17:12.

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

:17:13.:17:18.

The Scunthorpe United manager was critical of his players after they

:17:18.:17:24.

slumped it to hit their third defeat of the season. The visitors

:17:24.:17:34.

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

people in Grimsby and Cleethorpes to all sorts of sports from

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

:20:52.:20:55.

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

:20:55.:20:58.

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

:20:58.:21:05.

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

:21:05.:21:11.

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

:21:11.:21:16.

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

:21:16.:21:21.

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

:21:21.:21:24.

already begun after that building was found to be structurally

:21:24.:21:34.
:21:34.:21:38.

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

:21:38.:21:44.

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

:21:44.:21:51.

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

:21:52.:21:59.

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

:21:59.:22:09.
:22:09.:22:10.

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

:22:10.:22:20.
:22:20.:22:20.

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

:22:20.:22:27.

day. They must have looked nice against Mediterranean the blue

:22:28.:22:34.

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

:22:34.:22:40.

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

:22:40.:22:47.

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

:22:47.:22:51.

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

:22:51.:22:56.

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

:22:56.:23:02.

How is the demolition going? Things are progressing pretty

:23:02.:23:11.

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

:23:11.:23:15.

night to minimise disruption to shoppers and businesses. What we

:23:15.:23:24.

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

:23:24.:23:31.

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

:23:31.:23:39.
