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

:00:08.:00:10.

Senior Humberside Police officers challenge politicians to be honest

:00:10.:00:13.

in their assessment of cuts, warning that services will be

:00:13.:00:23.
:00:23.:00:24.

affected. I have to have an honest concert -- conversation with my own

:00:24.:00:31.

people. We have to try and maintain the best of what the public want,

:00:31.:00:34.

but it will deal with these budget cuts.

:00:35.:00:37.

Hopes that Lincoln's Eastern Bypass will ease congestion and bring

:00:37.:00:40.

thousands of jobs to the area. It has been called the most

:00:40.:00:43.

successful Lincoln Christmas market ever - the benefits reaped by the

:00:43.:00:45.

city from the four-day event. And a not-so-happy return for Nigel

:00:46.:00:48.

Pearson, as Hull City's former manager comes back to the KC

:00:48.:00:57.

Stadium. My and a cold start to the week. There could be based on

:00:57.:01:07.
:01:07.:01:13.

untreated surfaces. A fool forecast Good evening. Frontline jobs will

:01:13.:01:15.

have to goal. A senior detective with Humberside

:01:15.:01:18.

Police is tonight challenging politicians to be honest in their

:01:18.:01:20.

assessment of deep cuts to the Humberside Police budget. The force

:01:20.:01:24.

will lose �30 million and it is leading to tough choices on how

:01:24.:01:30.

best to use resources. In a moment, we will be hearing from Chief

:01:31.:01:37.

Superintendent Colin Andrews, who is in charge of Force Operations.

:01:37.:01:40.

As one of Humberside Police's most senior detectives, Deena Flemming

:01:40.:01:46.

heads up the "cold case" team. She investigates older, unsolved crimes.

:01:46.:01:56.

Crimes she fears will take a back seat under the cuts. My team are

:01:56.:02:02.

dealing with the 18-year-old who was raped in 1984 and we do have

:02:02.:02:07.

the firm DNA profile. That is not a victim of today, but my argument is

:02:07.:02:13.

that she is still a victim and deserves a service.

:02:13.:02:16.

Sherry Kingston believes the cold case team should be protected. 31

:02:16.:02:19.

years ago, a nine-year-old Sherry had walked to wasteland to feed the

:02:19.:02:21.

horses. A paedophile sexually assaulted her and threatened to

:02:21.:02:23.

kill her. Earlier this year, her attacker David Littlewood was

:02:23.:02:31.

sentenced to seven and a half years. They was like winning the lottery.

:02:31.:02:41.

It really was. Just to look at Ten and just to look at what the

:02:41.:02:51.

repulsive man he is. These people will murder and the will rate at.

:02:51.:02:59.

But 20% cuts mean tough decisions ahead. The there is no point

:02:59.:03:04.

pretending the cuts will not have an impact. I have to talk to my own

:03:04.:03:09.

people to work out that difficult choices we make. We have to work

:03:09.:03:14.

out what the public want and deserve while working within the

:03:14.:03:18.

framework of the budget cuts. The government's policing minister

:03:19.:03:22.

Nick Herbert has told us in a statement: "I do not accept that

:03:22.:03:24.

reductions in police funding will impact on provision of frontline

:03:24.:03:27.

services or crime rates. We need to get away from this unhealthy

:03:27.:03:34.

obsession with officer numbers. The issue here is how resources are

:03:34.:03:38.

used." A as a police officer and the last 30 years, may have seen

:03:38.:03:45.

our lot of change. But at the risk of burning out the staff we now

:03:45.:03:49.

have. It is a situation that nobody in

:03:49.:03:53.

the force has asked for, but one they are now forced to deal with.

:03:53.:03:55.

Chief Superintendent Colin Andrews is head of Humberside's Operations

:03:55.:03:58.

branch. He retires at Christmas after 37 years on the force and has

:03:58.:04:07.

been telling me how the cuts will affect him at the sharp end. In any

:04:07.:04:14.

area that Tanni cover, or what we have tried to do is reduce the

:04:15.:04:19.

impact of these cuts, but inevitably, some services will have

:04:19.:04:29.
:04:29.:04:32.

to go. Do you think the politicians are been honest enough about this?

:04:32.:04:35.

Officers can only cut so far without affecting frontline

:04:35.:04:41.

services. There has been all this talk about a lot of the car has

:04:41.:04:50.

been in the backroom staff. But we have been hearing across the board

:04:50.:04:58.

that everyone has to prioritise. Surely the police are no different?

:04:58.:05:05.

Yes, I do not argue with that. But we simply cannot make, cuts in the

:05:05.:05:11.

back room. Some from line services will have to be affected. We have

:05:11.:05:21.
:05:21.:05:22.

got to prioritise and one of the things is that any other officers

:05:23.:05:26.

investigating the current spate of metal thefts, but that means that

:05:26.:05:36.
:05:36.:05:38.

these officers are having to be taken off other investigations. You

:05:38.:05:42.

need to understand that we do a lot of things that are not front line.

:05:42.:05:47.

We do a lot of liaison work which is still very important and needs

:05:47.:05:57.

to be done as well as the in-your- face policing. You are retiring,

:05:57.:06:05.

but why can police officers not simply work longer? I ache could

:06:05.:06:11.

have retired at seven years ago. But is simply does not make

:06:11.:06:19.

financial sense for me to stay on any longer. I you been asked to do

:06:19.:06:29.
:06:29.:06:29.

too much one too little money? I think we are. I won the

:06:29.:06:37.

operations branch and I have other will say that I do in my own time,

:06:37.:06:47.

such as a hostage negotiator. But you can only give so which back.

:06:47.:06:53.

Good to see it and happy retirement to you.

:06:53.:06:56.

We would like to hear your thoughts on this. Where do you think the

:06:56.:07:00.

police need to cut their cloth to save money? You can get in touch in

:07:00.:07:10.
:07:10.:07:18.

We will not some of your thoughts on this before we finish.

:07:18.:07:22.

And tonight's edition of Inside Out will take a closer look at the

:07:22.:07:26.

future of Humberside Police. That is on BBC One at 7.30pm.

:07:26.:07:29.

In a moment, we will hear from former caravan workers who say they

:07:29.:07:37.

are still waiting for money they are owed.

:07:37.:07:41.

It could create as many as 30,000 jobs over the next 15 years with

:07:41.:07:47.

thousands more predicted for the future. Those are just some of the

:07:47.:07:49.

economic benefits that could come from the long-awaited Lincoln

:07:49.:07:56.

Eastern Bypass, according to Lincolnshire County Council. Last

:07:56.:07:58.

week, the government agreed to part-fund the scheme with �50m,

:07:58.:08:02.

with the remainder of the money coming from the council. Our

:08:02.:08:05.

reporter Simon Spark is in Lincoln for us this evening. How

:08:05.:08:15.
:08:15.:08:16.

significant is this news, Simon? is very important. Here, they say

:08:16.:08:22.

the congestion on a daily be travels through here to and from

:08:22.:08:28.

the city. Not surprisingly, most of the people here are in favour of

:08:28.:08:35.

the bypass. But in order to pay for it, that needs more development to

:08:35.:08:43.

be done. It means thousands more houses and thousands more cars. The

:08:43.:08:53.
:08:53.:08:57.

question then is will that actually do anything to help the congestion?

:08:57.:09:03.

According to the county council, the �100 million project will

:09:03.:09:08.

reduce congestion and create up to 30,000 new jobs over the next 15

:09:08.:09:15.

years. It is not on the good news for this area, but for the

:09:15.:09:25.
:09:25.:09:28.

surrounding parts of Lincolnshire. The bypass will start in the North

:09:28.:09:36.

and finish in the south. This is a problem they are trying to stop.

:09:36.:09:40.

The traffic building up throughout the morning and at the rush hour in

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:09:54.

evening. We needed to get out of the difficulty of getting access to

:09:54.:09:58.

work, but we have simply created a system of traffic that clogs

:09:58.:10:08.
:10:08.:10:08.

everything up. But in the village there was a lot of support for it.

:10:08.:10:16.

I cannot wait forever. It is absolutely chaotic round here.

:10:16.:10:20.

will be good for the traders as well, because they complain there

:10:20.:10:28.

is too much traffic in the city. private investment is found,

:10:28.:10:33.

construction could begin by a 2014. I am joined by Paul Coatup from

:10:33.:10:36.

Lincolnshire County Council. 30,000 jobs is a heck of a

:10:36.:10:43.

prediction. Where are they all coming from? Me think a lot of them

:10:43.:10:48.

will come from regeneration of the land that is proposed. It will come

:10:48.:10:52.

from the people living in the new houses and homes that will be

:10:52.:10:57.

constructed once the road has been got the go-ahead. And it will come

:10:57.:11:02.

from those employments and local businesses that will go not to

:11:02.:11:12.

accommodate that extra growth in the housing market. You have worked

:11:12.:11:15.

for the county council for 20 years and you said last week as the

:11:15.:11:25.
:11:25.:11:25.

happiest day. Why was that? I was able to take people round to show

:11:25.:11:31.

them what this bypass scheme would be like and now it is going to

:11:31.:11:39.

become a reality. We heard in Simon's report there

:11:39.:11:42.

that not everyone is happy. Green campaigners say this will be just

:11:42.:11:44.

another busy road, choking the atmosphere. How much will you

:11:44.:11:52.

consider the environmental impact when you build the road? But there

:11:52.:11:56.

is there, we will try and mitigate any impact that this would have any

:11:56.:12:02.

environment. But we think there will be a lot of good spin-offs in

:12:03.:12:10.

that respect. The city centre should become all Les Paul muted,

:12:10.:12:19.

for example. There will be an impact on the land, but we can do a

:12:19.:12:26.

lot of things to mitigate that. Someone said to me that the Moon

:12:26.:12:36.
:12:36.:12:40.

will only be helpful for people to avoid coming into the city. That is

:12:40.:12:49.

the point of it. It will take about 20 % of the traffic off.

:12:49.:12:58.

When do you expect the road to be A lorry driver who died after an

:12:58.:13:01.

accident on the A160 in South Killingholme this morning has been

:13:01.:13:04.

named by police. 53-year-old Mark Connor from Manchester is believed

:13:04.:13:07.

to have fallen ill at the wheel of his articulated lorry. The

:13:07.:13:10.

carriageway was closed westbound for most of the morning to allow

:13:10.:13:12.

investigations to be carried out. Anyone with information about this

:13:12.:13:22.
:13:22.:13:27.

incident should contact Humberside The first public consultation on

:13:27.:13:30.

what may be the world's largest offshore wind farm has begun today.

:13:30.:13:33.

2,600 turbines are proposed for the site at Dogger Bank. The

:13:33.:13:35.

development will require miles of cabling and improvements to

:13:35.:13:42.

electricity substations in East Yorkshire. A Lincoln based charity

:13:42.:13:46.

working with homeless people has launched a new appeal. The Nomad

:13:46.:13:49.

Trust are collecting unwanted furniture from across the city

:13:49.:13:56.

which will furnish accommodation for people without a home.

:13:56.:14:00.

Still ahead... As crowds flocked to Lincoln's

:14:00.:14:03.

Christmas market, we'll find out if the four-day event has become a

:14:03.:14:06.

victim of its own success? No pre-Christmas cheer for Nigel

:14:58.:15:04.

That was the viewer, not me. The headline for the next 24 hours

:15:04.:15:10.

is a cold one. We have got a warning out, with icy patches on

:15:10.:15:13.

untreated services. We have got a few showers rolling through more

:15:13.:15:17.

southern parts of the region and tomorrow the wind is still in the

:15:18.:15:24.

West. But it has a less of a flow and many parts of the region will

:15:24.:15:29.

be dry with some sunshine. My goodness, it has been a cold day

:15:30.:15:35.

today. There has been a significant wind chill. Can you pick out those

:15:35.:15:40.

lines of showers? This one is still running through Lincolnshire, and

:15:40.:15:45.

they could be a wintery flavour to some of these showers, but they

:15:45.:15:51.

able to sort out gradually and the cloud will clear. Watch out for

:15:51.:15:55.

those icy patches. They could be some tricky driving conditions and

:15:55.:16:05.
:16:05.:16:05.

the gritters are out in force. The sun will rise in the morning at

:16:06.:16:15.
:16:16.:16:16.

8:02am. A cold and possibly icy start on the roads. It is mostly

:16:16.:16:21.

fine but otherwise. There is a risk of some showers, but as you can see,

:16:21.:16:28.

many places will be dry, if a little on the cold side. A moderate

:16:28.:16:38.
:16:38.:16:39.

wind holding temperatures back to around 5 or 6. Wednesday, again, a

:16:39.:16:44.

few showers. Then, look at that. Temperatures up to 9 or 10 with

:16:44.:16:50.

some rain for some time. Right your tweeds properly or we

:16:50.:16:59.

will have some more emails! Oh MG. See you tomorrow.

:16:59.:17:02.

Workers made redundant from a caravan the company from Hull say

:17:02.:17:07.

they are still waiting for the money they are owed. 360 employees

:17:07.:17:13.

won a tribunal in 2010 entitling them to a larger payouts but so far

:17:13.:17:23.

the administrators of the former Just one of 300 workers made

:17:23.:17:30.

redundant a week before Christmas at 2008. To work here, I don't know

:17:30.:17:36.

how many people... Surrey... I am too upset. We are devastated, we

:17:36.:17:41.

don't know what is going to happen. We will dig deep and seek what kind

:17:41.:17:46.

of Christmas we can have but the future looks bleak. Sam worked for

:17:46.:17:52.

Atlas holiday homes for 23 years and he won a tribunal in 2010

:17:52.:17:55.

entitling him to larger payouts but the administrators have not paid

:17:55.:18:01.

out. We would like to know where our money is. They are getting

:18:01.:18:05.

their money, they are getting their fees every three months, they get

:18:05.:18:11.

their money, why can't we have our my knee? This is one of the old

:18:11.:18:15.

sites and this is one of the problems for the administrators.

:18:15.:18:20.

They need to sell these buildings before they can settle up with

:18:20.:18:24.

former employees and they have told us that the economic climate over

:18:24.:18:29.

the last three years has made that very difficult. Atlas holiday homes

:18:29.:18:33.

is not connected with an should not be confused in any way with a

:18:33.:18:41.

completely separate firm with a similar name operating in the area.

:18:41.:18:47.

The majority of claims are �4,500, but there is a chance the workers

:18:47.:18:52.

will not receive this. Employees are unsecured creditors and before

:18:52.:18:56.

them are people like secured creditors like the bank, so they

:18:56.:19:01.

will be paid first. And, really, it is a case of whatever is left, if

:19:01.:19:06.

there is anything left. Unfortunately, it is hard to put a

:19:06.:19:10.

time frame on that. There is one certainty, the sale of this

:19:10.:19:15.

property is crucial to insure former employees finally get their

:19:15.:19:18.

money. It's been described as the most

:19:18.:19:21.

successful Christmas market that Lincoln has ever hosted. It's

:19:21.:19:23.

thought the four-day event which closed yesterday saw more visitors

:19:23.:19:28.

than ever before. Among the options now being considered is the idea of

:19:28.:19:32.

making it a five-day event instead of the current four. Tarah Welsh

:19:32.:19:42.
:19:42.:19:56.

reports. We saw customers every nine seconds.

:19:56.:20:01.

It had been a very good market. You could fill 11 bathtubs with the

:20:01.:20:05.

amount of mulled wine bought from this tour. The Christmas market has

:20:05.:20:10.

been here for three decades but was cancelled in 2000 and because of

:20:10.:20:16.

bad weather. Many welcomed this year's boost. We have taken just

:20:16.:20:21.

under two weeks' sales in over a period of three days a. The council

:20:21.:20:25.

estimate 200,000 visitors came to the Christmas market this year.

:20:25.:20:30.

Record numbers on Thursday and Saturday. They generated appease

:20:30.:20:35.

�10 million for the local economy. Critics say the event is too

:20:35.:20:38.

disruptive. The park-and-ride service is too expensive and too

:20:38.:20:43.

busy. On Saturday, parts of the market closed for health and safety

:20:43.:20:47.

reasons and some traders say an extra day would ease the crowds.

:20:47.:20:53.

has been the victim of its own success. It has really grown, and

:20:53.:20:58.

it is crowded. It opens at 4pm on Thursday and I wonder whether we

:20:58.:21:03.

could open on 4pm on Tuesday. Then right through to Sunday.

:21:03.:21:08.

council say extending the opening is just an idea. One of the

:21:08.:21:11.

problems to consider his it does have an impact on the people that

:21:11.:21:18.

live up here, things like the local school, so do we balance it with

:21:18.:21:22.

extending the market, disrupting, or do we manage the crowd

:21:22.:21:26.

differently? We will look at everything. Businesses hope that

:21:26.:21:31.

whatever is done, it will make the Christmas as merry as this one.

:21:31.:21:41.
:21:41.:21:42.

A great success. 18 days after he left Hull City,

:21:43.:21:46.

Nigel Pearson was back at the club as Leicester City manager. But if

:21:46.:21:49.

he thought his inside knowledge about the Tigers would be a route

:21:49.:21:51.

to success, he was wrong. Here's our sports reporter Simon Clark.

:21:51.:21:54.

A few days ago, he was the manager of Hull City but Nigel Pearson's

:21:54.:21:59.

plotting of his old club's downfall did not go to plan. Thanks to an

:21:59.:22:04.

eagle eyed official, the Tigers and a penalty. The Leicester man was

:22:04.:22:12.

dispatched from the field. Matty Fryer put City ahead. Even with 10

:22:12.:22:18.

men, Leicester were dangerous as they proved when they scored a fine

:22:18.:22:22.

equaliser. The Tigers in the second half pressed for a winner which

:22:22.:22:29.

proved elusive, until this... 1-1... Left foot, he has done it

:22:29.:22:36.

again! Aigner, obviously, their strengths and weaknesses. Today

:22:36.:22:40.

was... We made life difficult for ourselves so disappointing not to

:22:40.:22:44.

get anything out of the game, but credit to them. How hard was at to

:22:44.:22:51.

see Nigel? It was strange. It was odd. Like their say, it is when

:22:51.:22:55.

your professionalism cuts and, and make sure you play the game.

:22:55.:23:03.

win was the thing they needed before their game with Birmingham.

:23:03.:23:07.

You look at the atmosphere on Saturday, it was fantastic. And

:23:07.:23:11.

when this place is rocking, it is intimidating for any a wayside and

:23:11.:23:16.

we need that, week in, week out. will take him some time but he will

:23:16.:23:23.

be OK. He is one of our own. experience builds up, he will do us

:23:23.:23:28.

good and the team will support him as well. That seems enough, then,

:23:28.:23:31.

for these fans to brave a cold Wednesday night out against

:23:31.:23:34.

Birmingham. And Hull City could face record

:23:34.:23:37.

signing Jimmy Bullard in the third round of the FA Cup. The Tigers

:23:37.:23:42.

have been drawn against Bullard's Ipswich Town. Grimsby Town will

:23:42.:23:45.

face Sheffield United if they beat Salisbury in a replay. The Mariners

:23:45.:23:55.

managed a goalless draw against them on Saturday in Wiltshire.

:23:55.:23:58.

It's been one of the big talking points of the year. The weather's

:23:58.:24:01.

kept us all guessing over the last few months and brought some

:24:01.:24:04.

unexpected surprises. November was one of the mildest on record but

:24:04.:24:07.

now temperatures have dropped and today parts of Yorkshire have seen

to prove it. We have been prepared from the beginning of September. We

are out there, ready to roll, and we are out there today. The first
