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

:00:06.:00:08.

It's revealed a quarter of pregnant women in north-east Lincolnshire

:00:08.:00:15.

smoke as more people are urged to quit.

:00:15.:00:21.

Put your mind to it, you can do it. Help is there if you want to do it.

:00:21.:00:24.

The hospice officially opened by the Princess Royal which is still

:00:24.:00:33.

empty eight months after her visit. Join me live in Louth where Fridays

:00:33.:00:36.

are the new Thursdays. Into the wild - art moves away from

:00:36.:00:46.
:00:46.:00:47.

the gallery to the Wolds. And a warning of ice to come in the

:00:47.:00:57.
:00:57.:00:58.

next few hours. Your weekend There are 37,000 of them and they

:00:58.:01:02.

smoke half a million cigarettes a day. We're talking smokers and the

:01:02.:01:05.

problem is so serious in North East Lincolnshire, that the area has

:01:05.:01:09.

made it into the top ten of places in the country with high numbers of

:01:09.:01:17.

smokers. The shocking figures reveal that a quarter of pregnant

:01:17.:01:20.

women in the county carry on smoking - that's almost twice the

:01:20.:01:23.

national average. And in some areas almost every other adult is a

:01:23.:01:28.

smoker. Today health and council workers have met to look at new

:01:28.:01:33.

ideas to try and persuade people to quit. In a moment we'll be asking

:01:33.:01:35.

Geoff Barnes from north-east Lincolnshire council what those are.

:01:35.:01:40.

But first Anne Marie Tasker has this.

:01:40.:01:43.

For 25 years, Amanda Jagger was a regular smoker. But with her first

:01:43.:01:48.

baby due next month, she was determined to quit. A quarter of

:01:48.:01:50.

16-year-old girls in North East Lincolnshire smoke, so Amanda

:01:50.:01:53.

wasn't alone in starting young. But with the help of her family,

:01:53.:01:59.

friends and an NHS counsellor she's finally given up. I have done it

:01:59.:02:05.

alone before. I spent �130 on patches. I stopped for three months

:02:05.:02:10.

and then relaxed. It helps being in a group, hearing other people's

:02:10.:02:19.

stories. Overall 37,000 people here smoke in

:02:19.:02:22.

the North East Lincolnshire, getting through half a million

:02:22.:02:27.

cigarettes a day. It is hardly surprising that almost a quarter of

:02:27.:02:30.

pregnant women smoke. And that figure of 23% of pregant women

:02:30.:02:36.

smoking is way above the national average of 14 %. So today, health

:02:36.:02:39.

professionals, community groups and council workers decided it was time

:02:39.:02:44.

to act. They met in Grimsby to discuss how to cut the number of

:02:44.:02:51.

smokers. It is coming down very slowly but

:02:51.:02:56.

nothing like as fast as we want. Basically, we are about 40 % higher

:02:56.:03:03.

than the national average and death from smoking-related illness is 30-

:03:03.:03:07.

50 % higher than ash -- national average.

:03:07.:03:12.

Stopping smoking alone cannot deliver the drop that is required.

:03:12.:03:18.

There is also medium to long-term plans to prevent people from taking

:03:18.:03:22.

up to smoking. Smoking in pregnancy can cause low

:03:22.:03:24.

birth weight and developmental problems. But with North East

:03:24.:03:27.

Lincolnshire having the tenth highest percentage of smokers in

:03:27.:03:37.
:03:37.:03:39.

the country - it may be some time before the area sees a change.

:03:39.:03:43.

Certainly some startling figures there. I enjoyed by the director

:03:43.:03:50.

for public health for Lincolnshire Council. Why does north-east

:03:50.:03:52.

Lincolnshire have one of the highest smoking rates in the

:03:52.:03:55.

country? There are many historical factors

:03:55.:04:01.

behind it. Just a generation ago, as much as three in four men and

:04:01.:04:06.

one in two women in areas such as this were smokers. That has come

:04:06.:04:11.

down to one in four. Progress has been made. There'll still areas

:04:11.:04:16.

like north-east but Lincolnshire up with poverty highly associated with

:04:16.:04:18.

smoking. The number of pregnant women who

:04:18.:04:22.

smoke is high compared to the rest of the country. You don't seem to

:04:22.:04:26.

be able to get the figure down. Why is it so persistent?

:04:26.:04:33.

There is progress being made. It is way too high. We only have to go

:04:33.:04:36.

back a couple of years and we were talking about one in three pregnant

:04:36.:04:42.

women spreading. Now we are talking about 23 %. We have put in a lot of

:04:42.:04:47.

measures around insuring midwives promote the issue and ensuring that

:04:47.:04:53.

pregnant women who are smokers have a service available.

:04:53.:04:57.

75 % started in school. Are you doing something to combat that?

:04:57.:05:02.

That is a very big priority. If you can stop somebody smoking before

:05:02.:05:07.

the age of 19, they are highly unlikely to ever stop smoking. We

:05:07.:05:12.

have got people in schools. It is not just about health messages and

:05:12.:05:16.

making sure children here about changing attitudes to smoking,

:05:17.:05:20.

convincing them about how much money it will cost them and it is

:05:20.:05:24.

not going to get helpful to get girlfriends and boyfriends and that

:05:24.:05:28.

is key to address teenagers. After all of the adverts, every

:05:28.:05:32.

woman must know it is bad for her and her baby, so they obviously

:05:32.:05:37.

aren't bothered and just want to do I think they are bothered. Pregnant

:05:37.:05:45.

women do want to do the best for their baby. Ferrari lot of myths

:05:45.:05:49.

around being a pregnant smoker and we have to challenge those damaging

:05:49.:05:53.

myths. We are working to convince Britain and within that the best

:05:53.:05:57.

thing they can do for their baby if they smoke is too small -- to stop

:05:57.:05:59.

smoking. What would you say to the woman

:05:59.:06:04.

watching tonight, and there will be plenty, who is pregnant and smoking.

:06:04.:06:08.

I would say, I know you want to do the best for your baby and the best

:06:08.:06:12.

thing you can do now is to do everything you possibly can to stop

:06:12.:06:18.

smoking. Thank you. We would like to throw

:06:18.:06:23.

this one open. What is the answer? How do you help stop people stop

:06:23.:06:27.

smoking or prevent them from starting in the first place?

:06:27.:06:32.

Interesting to hear what you did. It as a smoker, they beat you still

:06:32.:06:40.

that the finger is constantly East pointed at you at the moment? The

:06:40.:06:50.
:06:50.:06:55.

We will have some before we finish at 7pm. In a moment:

:06:55.:06:58.

Open for Christmas - the seasonal pub serving non-alcoholic drinks to

:06:58.:07:06.

A hospice in Lincolnshire which was officially opened by the Princess

:07:06.:07:12.

Royal is still empty six months after her visit. Supporters took 11

:07:12.:07:15.

years to raise money to help pay the �1.5 million needed to build

:07:15.:07:21.

The Butterfly Hospice in Boston. But its seven beds remain unused

:07:21.:07:30.

despite growing need for them. It opened in a blaze of publiity by

:07:30.:07:38.

royalty. To see what you have managed to

:07:38.:07:41.

achieve will spur you on. But eight months on, Boston's

:07:41.:07:45.

Butterfly Hospice stands empty, yet to help one terminally ill patient.

:07:45.:07:48.

A tragedy, according to fundraiser Christine Roberts. She's in

:07:48.:07:55.

remission from ovarian cancer and knows how much it's needed.

:07:55.:07:59.

We have spent 10 years as a community building this hospice and

:07:59.:08:03.

now it is open, we are ready for the support and do to start in the

:08:04.:08:07.

new year but we still do not have the funding for long stern -- long-

:08:07.:08:10.

term nursing or beds. Dr Peter Holmes is the man who

:08:10.:08:13.

would commission the hospice to care for NHS patients. He's refused

:08:13.:08:18.

to give them funding. I would love to be able to send my

:08:18.:08:23.

patients that. It is something I would love to use. The environment

:08:23.:08:27.

is very good indeed but we are not convinced they can provide clinical

:08:27.:08:33.

care that is safe and we want to allow patients to experience care

:08:33.:08:40.

that is safe and effective. It all hinges on the fact the

:08:40.:08:43.

Ospreys managers have not registered on the care Quality

:08:43.:08:48.

Commission, an organisation that regulates healthcare providers. It

:08:48.:08:53.

is illegal to operate as a hospice without reaching the Care Quality

:08:53.:08:57.

Commission's standards. If this is just a case of

:08:57.:09:00.

registering, why don't you just do that?

:09:00.:09:05.

I wish it was. It costs money to register with the care quality

:09:05.:09:09.

commission. Until we have the right staff in place and we know that we

:09:09.:09:14.

are going to get long-term or sustainable funding, it is a

:09:14.:09:17.

pointless exercise trying to register with them.

:09:17.:09:22.

It is a frustrating situation. A modern, equipped hospice where

:09:23.:09:28.

patients would be a comfortable. Because nobody can guarantee their

:09:28.:09:35.

care, these gates will remain locked.

:09:35.:09:41.

That might be another report you would like to contact us about.

:09:41.:09:44.

P&O Ferry crossings into and out of Hull have returned to normal today

:09:44.:09:47.

after gales left passengers stranded for nine hours off the

:09:47.:09:50.

east coast last night. The Pride of York arrived just two hours late

:09:50.:09:55.

this morning as the high winds eased. The Pride of Hull didn't

:09:55.:09:58.

leave for the continent until 5:00am this morning because of the

:09:58.:10:01.

extreme weather conditions. The Red Arrows have resumed

:10:01.:10:04.

training for the first time since the death of Flight Lieutenant Sean

:10:04.:10:08.

Cunningham. The team was cleared to fly yesterday following the fatal

:10:08.:10:12.

accident last month. But the RAF insists it's now satisfied with the

:10:12.:10:16.

safety of its Hawk jets following a series of checks.

:10:16.:10:20.

Hull's main bus and train station was forced to close for a second

:10:20.:10:25.

time this week after reports of a gas leak. The Interchange re-opened

:10:25.:10:30.

this afternoon. But it comes after the building was evacuated for an

:10:30.:10:38.

hour on Wednesday after a smell of gas on its rail platforms. An

:10:38.:10:43.

internet company has been given permission to run the fibre optic

:10:43.:10:46.

cables to the Humber Bridge. They say they will be able to provide

:10:47.:10:52.

high-speed internet to businesses in Hull early next year. It will

:10:52.:10:54.

cost �5 million to set up. Lincoln's Christmas Market

:10:54.:10:57.

attracted a record breaking 335,000 people last week. The organisers

:10:57.:11:01.

say it's the biggest turnout in the market's history and is an increase

:11:01.:11:06.

of 30,000 visitors compared to 2009 when it was last held. They've also

:11:06.:11:14.

promised to address concerns about overcrowding in the city centre.

:11:14.:11:17.

Metal thieves risk life and limb stealing rail and electricity

:11:17.:11:26.

cables as well as church roofs and pipes from houses. We have talked

:11:26.:11:31.

about it many times on the programme. Their latest target is a

:11:31.:11:34.

seven foot tall restored engine, complete with its trailer. The 1923

:11:34.:11:38.

Hornsby Oil Engine which is part of the display at the Sibsey Windmill,

:11:38.:11:41.

was being resored as part of a five year project when it was stolen.

:11:41.:11:46.

Jake Zuckerman reports. Built in 1877, Sibsey Trader

:11:46.:11:52.

Windmill, near Boston is still making flour the traditional way.

:11:52.:11:55.

Although it's in full working order, volunteers here had been hoping to

:11:55.:12:02.

replace one missing element. A three and a half ton vintage oil-

:12:02.:12:06.

powered engine, like this one. In the 1920s it was installed at the

:12:06.:12:10.

mill to grind corn when there was no wind. But it had been removed

:12:10.:12:19.

more than 50 years ago. This is the old footing to the engine shed.

:12:19.:12:24.

There was a plinth for it to stand on in concrete. It drove by belt

:12:24.:12:28.

and poorly to a bearing that was connected up to drive the

:12:29.:12:31.

millstones. After a long search, volunteers had

:12:31.:12:34.

managed to find this rare 1923 engine, built by Hornsby in Lincoln,

:12:34.:12:39.

and were restoring it. But last week it was stolen, and it's feared

:12:39.:12:48.

thieves plan to sell this unique piece of local heritage for scrap.

:12:48.:12:52.

The engine was sure it -- was stolen by the shed where it was

:12:52.:12:55.

Beale stored on Tuesday evening. It is believed the thieved must have

:12:55.:12:59.

known what they were looking for because of the manpower needed to

:12:59.:13:03.

move such a large item. The team that keep the mill running say

:13:03.:13:06.

they're devastated by the theft. The oil engine is so rare it may be

:13:06.:13:12.

impossible to replace. It is a piece of our heritage. It

:13:12.:13:19.

was made in Lincoln at the Hornsby works. It was in original condition.

:13:19.:13:25.

To think of it possibly just ending up as scrap is devastating. Once

:13:25.:13:29.

they are lost, they are lost. This piece of machinery would be

:13:29.:13:34.

broken up for scrap value. Inquiries are being undertaken with

:13:34.:13:38.

local scrap-metal dealers to see if we have had anything similar or

:13:38.:13:42.

pieces of this machine weighed in. While the sails here at Sibsey

:13:42.:13:44.

Trader Windmill keep turning, the volunteers hope that someone comes

:13:44.:13:47.

forward with the information that will help them recover the stolen

:13:47.:13:57.
:13:57.:14:02.

Let us hope they do. We were talking about that earlier today.

:14:03.:14:12.

Still ahead - forget those days, Louth decides that Friday is the

:14:12.:14:18.

late night shopping date of choice for its residents.

:14:18.:14:28.

And not the usual gallery - Yorkshire art moves into the Wolds.

:14:28.:14:32.

Thank you for the photographs this week. This was our winner, even

:14:32.:14:42.
:14:42.:15:00.

day forecast and only she was four days? Well, today is the first day

:15:14.:15:22.

-- won the right, he can start to The ice warning is in force tonight.

:15:33.:15:40.

It looks as if it is going to be tricky on the roads in Norfolk and

:15:40.:15:45.

Lincolnshire. Tomorrow should be a nice day for getting out and about.

:15:45.:15:50.

A little bit of a gap with the weather systems. A little ridge of

:15:50.:15:59.

high pressure means not too bad a day. It remains very unsettled to

:15:59.:16:08.

read -- indeed. With surfaces pretty wet, we are going to see a

:16:08.:16:15.

lot of ice. Temperatures are very close to freezing. Take care on the

:16:15.:16:23.

roads. Temperatures - probably the coldest night of winter so far. The

:16:23.:16:33.
:16:33.:16:37.

sun will rise in the morning at 8:07am. A frosty, I see Stade

:16:37.:16:42.

wherever you are. It will be bright, however. There will be the rest of

:16:42.:16:52.
:16:52.:16:53.

isolated showers. Despite the sun, it is going to feel quite chilly.

:16:53.:17:03.

Temperatures below average. That all-important five-day forecast,

:17:03.:17:08.

then, with Saturday being the second day - some rain to come on

:17:08.:17:18.
:17:18.:17:19.

Sunday. Day 5 - that is Tuesday! - is looking unsettled! Several

:17:19.:17:22.

people have written of the last hour to say that there is a

:17:22.:17:27.

stunning full moon tonight. We have a camera on the river.

:17:27.:17:32.

There is a live picture of the moon. That is taken from the riff. That

:17:32.:17:37.

is another excuse for you to get you telling -- telescope out, isn't

:17:37.:17:47.
:17:47.:17:49.

Thanks to those who pointed that out. We brought news of people

select it to carry the Olympic torch yesterday.

:17:55.:17:58.

Hundreds of people learned yesterday that they would be taking

:17:58.:18:01.

part in the torch relay. There really is expected to have a

:18:01.:18:08.

worldwide audience of millions. I am very proud. Fantastic. Not just

:18:08.:18:13.

for me, but for my family, my friends, for the purple of -- for

:18:13.:18:20.

the people of the city. Well done to neck. And to to everyone who got

:18:20.:18:30.
:18:30.:18:50.

Weldon to Megan. Let us hope that she is watching tonight. --

:18:50.:18:56.

congratulations to Megan. Hull is said to be the online shopping

:18:56.:18:59.

capital of the country, with more shoppers than ever using the

:18:59.:19:03.

internet to buy their gift. A new study has found that more

:19:03.:19:08.

people in Hull visit retail website per head of the population than any

:19:08.:19:14.

other city in the country. That is an interesting story. But in life,

:19:14.:19:24.

they like to do things a little bit differently. -- in Louth. Late

:19:24.:19:29.

night shopping in Louth is on Fridays. Is this the challenge from

:19:29.:19:35.

Louth to those who prefer to go online? We are expecting people

:19:35.:19:40.

from a cross the county into the town tonight. Shops here are open

:19:40.:19:45.

till 8pm tonight. If you take a look over here, there is a short

:19:45.:19:48.

that is pulling in the crowds, as well as an open-air market for all

:19:48.:19:54.

your festive gift. With more people shopping online, traders are hoping

:19:54.:19:58.

this can attract more people back into the town. We asked shoppers

:19:58.:20:04.

whether they prefer the High Street are the Internet. I like the High

:20:04.:20:09.

Street, if the parking is good. If I cannot park, I prefer to go

:20:09.:20:16.

online. He can pick what you want, you can

:20:16.:20:23.

look at what you want. It is better than online. You can pick them up

:20:23.:20:27.

and check and have a look at it. Online, you do not know what it is

:20:27.:20:32.

like until you have it. I like the High Street, because you can see

:20:32.:20:37.

what you are buying and the faults in the clothing.

:20:37.:20:42.

A recent survey showed that, in Hull, more people are shopping

:20:42.:20:45.

online this Christmas than anywhere else in the country.

:20:45.:20:52.

Here in Louth, the shops are open late and there is a whole host of

:20:52.:20:56.

entertainment, from Santa's grotto to live music around the town.

:20:56.:21:02.

Don't worry if you missed it, it is all happening again next week.

:21:02.:21:05.

Peter, if you have not done your Christmas shopping yet, you know

:21:05.:21:12.

where to come. Football, and Hull City other great chance to

:21:12.:21:15.

consolidate a play-off position when they travel to Bolton side

:21:15.:21:21.

Coventry City. -- relegation-threatened Coventry

:21:21.:21:28.

City. Nick Barmby is relatively new to the management business.

:21:28.:21:32.

In the last two matches, he has seen of men who previously coached

:21:32.:21:40.

him. First Nigel Pearson and then Chris Hughton. Hull City are now up

:21:41.:21:48.

to six. The other favourite against bottom club Coventry City. -- they

:21:48.:21:51.

are the favourites. We are not going to take anything for granted.

:21:51.:21:57.

We know it will be at tough game. Carlisle United visit Glanford Park

:21:57.:22:02.

tomorrow. In the non-League world, it is

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:14.

their big cup day with the first round of the FA Trophy. There will

:22:14.:22:24.
:22:24.:22:40.

A new pub opened in Hull Queen Victoria Square offers free, non-

:22:40.:22:46.

alcoholic beer and advice on drinking responsibly. A festive

:22:46.:22:52.

cheer and a glass in hand, not unusual at this time it your.

:22:52.:22:57.

This pop up pub in Hull's city centre is sure to pool the punters

:22:57.:23:02.

in, even if the booze is non- alcoholic. It tastes really nice,

:23:02.:23:05.

it feels like I have a beer in my hand.

:23:05.:23:12.

It is good for a man, nobody would know the different for -- the

:23:12.:23:16.

difference. It could convert me. I have never tried non-alcoholic beer

:23:16.:23:21.

before but it is very nice. It may have all the features of a British

:23:21.:23:25.

pub, but there is a senior message here.

:23:25.:23:30.
