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

:00:05.:00:07.

The majority of schools in our area are facing closure next Wednesday,

:00:07.:00:12.

the warning from a trade union ahead of strike action.

:00:12.:00:22.
:00:22.:00:37.

Why private security patrols are being introduced to a market town.

:00:37.:00:41.

Our officers can actually detained people if required if someone is

:00:41.:00:47.

causing a problem, and that is all done in conjunction with the police.

:00:47.:00:50.

It may look like a rat but this is the country's most endangered

:00:50.:00:53.

mammal and it's flourishing in east Yorkshire.

:00:53.:00:56.

Why this is a sound you won't be hearing in Lincoln for several

:00:56.:01:03.

weeks. And a very windy weekend to come

:01:03.:01:13.
:01:13.:01:17.

It's been called the biggest strike in a generation and next Wednesday

:01:17.:01:20.

it will affect the majority of schools across East Yorkshire and

:01:20.:01:22.

Lincolnshire. That's according to a leading teaching union which says

:01:22.:01:25.

thousands of teachers will take part in the national walkout to

:01:25.:01:27.

protest against changes to pensions. The strike will also affect

:01:27.:01:30.

hospitals, colleges, courts and job centres. Our Political Editor Tim

:01:30.:01:40.
:01:40.:01:50.

Next Wednesday thousands of public sector workers will march in

:01:50.:01:57.

protest at proposed changes to their pensions. Emma is a primary

:01:57.:02:01.

school teacher at Willerby in East Yorkshire. She is unhappy about

:02:01.:02:08.

having to pay more towards her pension and work longer. They still

:02:08.:02:15.

want me to work until I am 68, they still want me to pay more into my

:02:15.:02:20.

pension and at the end of it I will get a poor pension. Teachers on

:02:20.:02:26.

average get �10,000 a year. I can name staff on a tractor at this

:02:26.:02:33.

called that as women are looking at a pension of around �8,000.

:02:34.:02:43.
:02:44.:02:44.

many parents say next week's strike will be inconvenient. I will have

:02:44.:02:49.

to get to somebody else to get the children for a couple of hours. Or

:02:49.:02:53.

we will track them all out with us. I understand they are worried about

:02:53.:03:00.

the pensions, but wide disrupt the children's education. More than 2

:03:01.:03:04.

million public sector workers across the country are expected to

:03:04.:03:08.

join the next Wednesday's walkout. Even their pension negotiations are

:03:08.:03:12.

still ongoing, the unions have defended their decision to take

:03:12.:03:20.

strike action. We are expecting that the vast majority of schools

:03:20.:03:25.

will be closed or partially closed. To those who are inconvenienced and

:03:25.:03:31.

out of pocket, no teacher wants that to happen. That is not our aim.

:03:31.:03:34.

The government claims the destruction caused by next week's

:03:34.:03:38.

day of action will cost the country half-a- billion pounds. But at this

:03:39.:03:43.

stage, nothing looks set to stop the biggest this strike for a

:03:43.:03:51.

generation. Joining me in the studio and Graham

:03:51.:03:54.

Stuart, the Beverley and Holderness MP and Chair of the Education

:03:54.:03:59.

Select Committe and Brian Swinton of the National Union of Teachers.

:03:59.:04:02.

David Cameron has called this action irresponsible and wrong, why

:04:02.:04:08.

are you doing it? Because we have do. There is no alternative. Graham

:04:08.:04:12.

and his colleagues are not listening. They are not seriously

:04:12.:04:15.

coming back to be at the negotiating table. More than half

:04:15.:04:22.

of your members did not ban it -- did not bother to return their

:04:22.:04:32.
:04:32.:04:33.

ballot papers. If you look at Graham's constituency results... A

:04:33.:04:38.

64 % of teachers did not choose to have a strike. Democracy works in

:04:38.:04:48.
:04:48.:04:50.

the same way. The 64 % did not vote no, otherwise they would have done.

:04:50.:04:55.

Why should teachers work until they are 68 years old and increase the

:04:55.:04:59.

amount they put into their pensions? John Hutton looked into

:04:59.:05:03.

public sector pensions and he came out with a report which suggested

:05:03.:05:09.

that need for change. If the situation which makes the strike

:05:09.:05:11.

call for more than reasonable is of this fact that the negotiations are

:05:11.:05:15.

run going. The government came forward a few weeks ago with an

:05:15.:05:19.

even more generous offer. The situation after the reforms has

:05:19.:05:27.

been described by the pensions adviser to the last Labour

:05:27.:05:31.

government as hugely generous. They are generous pensions, they are

:05:31.:05:35.

much better than people in the private sector have and yet they

:05:35.:05:40.

are going on strike and inconveniencing parents. We regret

:05:40.:05:44.

any inconvenience to parents. But that is what a strike is about. We

:05:45.:05:50.

want to know what has happened to more than �6.4 billion. Since the

:05:50.:05:54.

pension scheme started, there has been a surplus of paying-in over

:05:54.:05:58.

what the Treasury has paid out. Successive governments have had

:05:58.:06:04.

that money and lost it, where has it gone? Your disrupting people's

:06:04.:06:12.

lives next week. Would you say to the parents? But they are with us.

:06:12.:06:16.

We want to get it right. But we want to get education right for

:06:16.:06:21.

this country with a secure teaching force who are able to look forward

:06:21.:06:27.

to a good career. This is the only way they can get their message

:06:27.:06:33.

across. That is not true. But the negotiations are ongoing. The

:06:33.:06:41.

result for the teachers will still be generous. I travel agents in

:06:41.:06:46.

Beverly contacted me, she works longer than teachers for much less

:06:46.:06:54.

money, why it should she not take a day after next Wednesday? The why

:06:54.:07:03.

are so many doctors and nurses and paddock -- paramedics also taking

:07:03.:07:08.

strike action? It is everybody. Government has lost its credibility

:07:08.:07:12.

on pensions. The previous government spent more money on the

:07:12.:07:16.

public sector than the country could afford. Now we are forced to

:07:16.:07:22.

share that Burton and we will still be left with a far better pensions

:07:22.:07:30.

for than those in the private sector. The teachers' pension

:07:30.:07:35.

scheme has a made a profit that successive governments has stolen.

:07:35.:07:39.

The 64 % of teachers who did not say yes to the strike, what do you

:07:39.:07:47.

say to them? Go to work on Wednesday. I do sympathise with the

:07:47.:07:53.

for teachers. But it is not a right to inconvenience the public.

:07:53.:07:58.

will leave it there. It thank you. Do you support the teachers and the

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

strike? We would like to hear from The strikes will be debated on the

:08:19.:08:27.

politics show on Sunday here on BBC One.

:08:27.:08:32.

Thank you for watching this Friday night. Still ahead, the author

raising thousands for charity in memory of her daughter.

:08:37.:08:41.

A council is so concerned about safety that it has decided to

:08:41.:08:46.

employ its own security staff to patrol the streets at night. Burton

:08:46.:08:50.

Council is the first in our area to employed a private security teams

:08:50.:08:54.

and says it is responding to demands from local businesses.

:08:54.:08:59.

Humberside police say crime figures are down in the town.

:08:59.:09:03.

It is a small North Letitia market town, but problems at the weekend

:09:03.:09:10.

are casting a dark shadow over Barton's image. They smashed

:09:10.:09:17.

windows. A few windows get broken. Now in the run-up to Christmas, the

:09:17.:09:21.

town council want people to be reassured, so they are spending

:09:21.:09:27.

�500 on patrols from a private security firm. We have no powers to

:09:27.:09:33.

arrest. The men we have on actinide are on radios and they have

:09:33.:09:37.

constant contact with the police. With any issues of they will be

:09:37.:09:42.

straight on the radio to the police. It is about reassuring local people.

:09:42.:09:47.

Clare thinks this is a good idea. She has been a victim of crime in

:09:47.:09:51.

the past. The windows have been broken and at one point I could not

:09:51.:09:55.

led by children out. It is needed around here. Christopher lives near

:09:55.:10:01.

to a lot of the trouble. I have seen that shop window over there

:10:01.:10:05.

being poured through over six times now. We spoke to the owners of the

:10:05.:10:14.

shop. We have shown them the CCTV camera and they come in all of the

:10:14.:10:18.

time. They are stealing things and breaking things all of the time.

:10:18.:10:22.

But there are still questions over whether two wardens will make a lot

:10:22.:10:27.

of difference. They will be patrolling the street and just

:10:27.:10:31.

moving the trouble on elsewhere. I do not think it will stop any

:10:31.:10:38.

trouble. I think they should do it. It by taking the action we have

:10:38.:10:46.

done, we have freed up the police to focus on other things. We have

:10:46.:10:51.

the presence we want on the beat. Hopefully that visible presence

:10:51.:10:59.

will reassure people and help them to feel safe. The scheme will start

:10:59.:11:09.
:11:09.:11:10.

at 10pm and run until 2am for the next four Fridays. The people here

:11:10.:11:17.

hope that this will make a difference.

:11:17.:11:21.

We asked Humberside police to talk was about Barton but they said that

:11:21.:11:26.

no one was available. They said that they were aware of the scheme

:11:26.:11:29.

and they supported the town council. But they added that statistically

:11:29.:11:34.

over the last five years crime has continued to fall in Barton.

:11:34.:11:38.

However they said that they recognise that some people's

:11:38.:11:45.

perception might be different that. Please get in contact with us if

:11:45.:11:50.

you want to comment on that story. A Hull man has been jailed for two

:11:50.:11:53.

years after being found guilty of violent disorder during the

:11:53.:11:56.

spending cuts protest in London in March. Joseph Binney was involved

:11:56.:12:00.

in the attack on the Santander bank. He was also jailed for three months

:12:00.:12:03.

for causing more than �20,000 of damage to trains and railway

:12:03.:12:08.

property with graffiti. The European Union is giving a

:12:08.:12:11.

million pounds to support East Yorkshire's shell fishing industry.

:12:11.:12:14.

The money will be used to tell consumers about local shellfish and

:12:14.:12:19.

to launch apprenticeships. East Yorkshire has the UK's largest crab

:12:19.:12:24.

and lobster fishery. 50 new jobs are being created in

:12:24.:12:28.

Goole through a �30 million investment in a glass factory there.

:12:28.:12:31.

Guardian Industries say the money will be spent in its energy saving

:12:31.:12:35.

glass department. It was opened in 2003 by an american company and

:12:35.:12:42.

employs 280 people. A mother from Northern Lincolnshire,

:12:42.:12:45.

whose daughter died from a sudden asthma attack, is writing a series

:12:45.:12:49.

of story books to raise money in her memory. Laura McPhee from

:12:49.:12:51.

Humberston was among almost 24,000 people in Lincolnshire who have

:12:51.:13:01.
:13:01.:13:13.

asthma. But unlike so many others, This is how Laura's family remember

:13:13.:13:18.

her - singing her favourite song. And these moments have inspired her

:13:19.:13:22.

mum to fund raised in her memory. From her home in Humberston, near

:13:22.:13:27.

Grimsby, Tracy Murphy has written a series of children's books to raise

:13:27.:13:37.
:13:37.:13:38.

Moat -- money for asthma awareness. Had tortured we are at losing Laura,

:13:38.:13:46.

in a way, if we can help others, by losing her... Hopefully we are

:13:46.:13:50.

doing something good. Laura was nine when she died. She had had

:13:50.:13:54.

asthma for years but when the ambulance was called last December,

:13:55.:14:01.

it got stuck in 10 inches of snow. She told me she could not breathe

:14:01.:14:07.

and she started to go blue. She had asthma attacks a lot, but you don't

:14:07.:14:12.

think that it child can pass away from it. With the help of Laura's

:14:12.:14:18.

grandad, Tracy has written the Laura Bear books. Her inspiration

:14:18.:14:24.

is the teddy her daughter made just days before she died. She was

:14:24.:14:30.

making jokes about the adventures of Laura Bear. I asked Tracey why

:14:30.:14:33.

she didn't frighten children's books and incorporate the inhaler,

:14:33.:14:41.

and that she was a poorly bare and the rest of it. We thought it would

:14:41.:14:45.

get it across to the kids to make sure they take their breathers

:14:45.:14:49.

wherever they go. But family have already raised �22,000 for life-

:14:53.:15:02.

books will raise even more. We wish the family well. Thank you

:15:02.:15:06.

for watching. Still ahead: The hunt is on in East Yorkshire for the

bell is falling silent after 175 years. -- wife.

:15:20.:15:26.

This is a pure fluke. Denied's photograph is of Lincoln Cathedral!

:15:26.:15:36.
:15:36.:15:39.

It is by Chris in Cottingham, who Cyril says that he watches with his

:15:39.:15:46.

wife every night in Brittany. They have had several misty mornings

:15:46.:15:51.

recently, and a white rainbow with no colours.

:15:51.:15:57.

Perhaps too many glasses of wine! That is not what we expected. Maybe

:15:57.:16:01.

I am stupid - I don't know the answer to that.

:16:01.:16:05.

Ahead lie is a very windy one. It looks like November is going out

:16:05.:16:12.

with a bang. The Met Office have a warning in place for widespread

:16:12.:16:17.

gales developing later tomorrow, so you have been warned. A very windy

:16:18.:16:23.

weekend. The weather will not be too bad. Some rain on Saturday

:16:23.:16:27.

night and then Sunday looks fine with some sunshine, but the weekend

:16:27.:16:33.

will be spoilt by the strength of the wind. These isobars are tightly

:16:33.:16:41.

packed. It could get up to 65 mph across the most exposed parts of

:16:41.:16:46.

the region. Some sharp showers this afternoon but apart from one a two

:16:46.:16:52.

right now, we seem to be entering a dry night. It will be feeling

:16:52.:16:55.

chilly. There are a number of lights being switched on this

:16:55.:17:00.

evening. Cloud does increase later and perhaps the odd spot of rain in

:17:00.:17:05.

the West. Temperatures will be as low as three or four degrees. The

:17:05.:17:15.

sun will rise in the morning just before 7:50am. So, windy from the

:17:15.:17:19.

word go across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, but apart from the

:17:19.:17:25.

odd spot of rain, it is dry. Cloudy at times but the wind will help to

:17:25.:17:30.

break the cloud. The best of the sunny spells will be the further

:17:30.:17:34.

south you go. At the end of the day, widespread gales and temperatures

:17:34.:17:38.

are looking quite good numerically, but when you add the impact of the

:17:38.:17:45.

wind, it will feel quite chilly. Wet and windy weather to come on

:17:45.:17:48.

Saturday Night and Sunday is very windy, but bright with some

:17:48.:17:58.
:17:58.:18:00.

Poor old Cyril in Brittany was hoping for a scientific explanation

:18:00.:18:04.

to restore his credibility with his neighbours!

:18:04.:18:09.

The wind is quite common. Don't make it worse! Don't make it

:18:09.:18:18.

worse! I apologise to any wine drinkers.

:18:18.:18:21.

Thank you for all the responses on the story about concerns over plans

:18:21.:18:27.

to drill for oil and gas in East Yorkshire. Rathlin Energy wants to

sink a 1.5 mile deep borehole Underground between Bishop Burton

:18:30.:18:35.

yesterday, following fears about the environmental impact. Keith in

Hull says that if there is all there, it should be extracted...

Here are some more of your Thanks for all of those. We read

:19:15.:19:19.

and listen to all of the messages. Nick Barmby takes charge of his

:19:19.:19:23.

first game at the KC Stadium, where whole city meet Burnley in the

:19:23.:19:27.

championship tomorrow. He admitted that life had been a bit of a

:19:27.:19:35.

whirlwind since his appointment last week.

:19:35.:19:38.

A start -- as a start to your managerial career go, this was a

:19:38.:19:45.

corker. Nick appreciated his side's defeat after Burnley last week. It

:19:45.:19:52.

was the best way to answer those who doubted his experience. This is

:19:52.:19:59.

a new experience and there is one of those every day. Agents are

:19:59.:20:02.

ringing up bones non-stop. You have got to deal with those things, but

Barmby - his first game at the KC Stadium as manager of his hometown

League One. They are off to Notts County.

:20:37.:20:40.

Scunthorpe will be glad to see the back of November. They have not

:20:40.:20:44.

managed a single win, with losses like this to Hartlepool compounded

:20:44.:20:50.

by an FA Cup exit. In the non- League world, Grimsby Town head to

for the first time. -- will welcome. Enjoy your football! Next season's

:21:05.:21:07.

Super League fixtures have been released and Hull Kingston Rovers

:21:07.:21:11.

will meet champions Leeds on the opening day. Rovers travelled to

:21:11.:21:16.

Headingley on 3rd February, while Hull FC welcome Warrington to the

:21:16.:21:21.

KC Stadium two days later. The two Hull sides go head to head for the

:21:21.:21:24.

first time on Good Friday at Craven Park.

:21:24.:21:28.

It may look like a rat, but this is, in fact, Britain's most endangered

:21:28.:21:32.

mammal. Water voles have been dying out as their habitat has been

:21:32.:21:36.

destroyed. Now, special wildlife cameras have been fitted as a farm

:21:36.:21:41.

near Goole to track their movements. -- track their movements. Sue

:21:41.:21:47.

Vaughan has been to find out more. Looking for East Yorkshire's Most

:21:47.:21:51.

Wanted. Since April, these special cameras have been recording the

:21:51.:21:55.

movements of this elusive creature on a farm near Goole. Once

:21:55.:22:00.

commonplace, the water vole is now fighting for survival. The water

:22:00.:22:05.

vole is Britain's most endangered mammal, so we have got to act now

:22:05.:22:10.

to stop the decline and hopefully, as well as halting the decline,

:22:10.:22:15.

start to build up the numbers. Water voles' numbers have dropped

:22:15.:22:19.

90% since the late 1980s. The introduction of mink, which kill

:22:19.:22:23.

and, is one problem. The destruction of habitat is another.

:22:23.:22:27.

This is one of the main areas we found them in. To give them a

:22:27.:22:31.

fighting chance, this farmer has changed the way he works to protect

:22:31.:22:35.

the ditches they live in. We are cleaning out one side of the drain

:22:35.:22:38.

every two years. It is better for the water vole because they have

:22:38.:22:42.

overhead cover to protect them Prom predators. Now they know whether

:22:42.:22:46.

voles live, it is easier to protect them. What sort of things have you

:22:46.:22:51.

been looking for? What we are looking for is, for example in the

:22:51.:22:57.

bank here, Burrows. We also look for remains of where they have been

:22:57.:23:00.

eating, so you can see here where they have cut it off at the end.

:23:00.:23:04.

is strange to think that just a few decades ago, water voles would have

:23:04.:23:08.

been a common sight in drains like this. Those days have now long gone

:23:08.:23:12.

but it is hoped that projects on farms, like this one, the in the

:23:12.:23:20.

Yorkshire Water vole can once again go from strength to strength.

:23:20.:23:24.

Members of the public are being invited to help plan to 3,000 trees

:23:24.:23:28.

near Boston this weekend. The Boston Woods Trust now has around

:23:28.:23:32.

100 acres around the town, including the latest, planted by

:23:33.:23:38.
