Good evening. Welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:07.:00:13.

The headlines: As many struggle to pay for Christmas, as calls for all

:00:13.:00:18.

children to be taught personal finance lessons in school.

:00:18.:00:22.

Debt is a fact of life, we have got to school people are so they know

:00:22.:00:26.

what they're getting into. Are our councils ready for the cold

:00:26.:00:36.
:00:36.:00:38.

weather? Also tonight, unbeaten in 10 games,

:00:38.:00:44.

Grimsby Town look to use the FA Cup to continue their good form.

:00:44.:00:48.

And back home, the Cleethorpes sailor whose internet video has had

:00:48.:00:54.

more than 2 million hits. And a touch of the wet and windy is

:00:54.:01:04.
:01:04.:01:06.

tonight, a very wet and unsettled Children should be taught how to

:01:06.:01:11.

manage money from the age of five to stop them getting into financial

:01:11.:01:16.

trouble as adults. That is the finding of a report written for the

:01:16.:01:21.

Government by the Brigg and Goole MP, Andrew Percy. More than 100,000

:01:21.:01:28.

people have signed an online position supporting the idea and

:01:28.:01:38.

256 MPs are in favour. Two weeks till Christmas and here

:01:38.:01:41.

on the High Street there are growing concerns that many will be

:01:41.:01:45.

left with massive New Year debts. At what age, though, should we

:01:45.:01:51.

start learning how to manage our finances? Andrew Percy, the MP for

:01:51.:01:56.

Brigg and Goole, believes the earlier the better. As a student he

:01:56.:01:59.

fell into serious debt and now wants to see financial management

:01:59.:02:04.

as part of the school curriculum. Rather than expecting kids to leave

:02:04.:02:08.

school understanding algebra and calculus, we should be expecting

:02:08.:02:13.

them to leave school knowing how to make informed financial decisions

:02:13.:02:18.

which are ever more complex these days. According to a recent survey,

:02:18.:02:20.

nearly 60% of the British population say they are worried

:02:20.:02:25.

about their current level of debt. Nearly half of the population

:02:25.:02:30.

struggled to make it to pay day and 32% of those who took out a pay-day

:02:30.:02:40.
:02:40.:02:40.

loan could not pay it back. At Hull's Wilberforce College today

:02:40.:02:44.

the students supported the idea in principle. Some were not sure if

:02:44.:02:48.

school was the right place to learn about controlling debt. May be a

:02:48.:02:53.

lot of the teachers are in the same position themselves. I think it is

:02:53.:02:58.

a good idea, especially in the current economic climate.

:02:58.:03:03.

amount of GCSEs people are sitting this -- these days, you would have

:03:03.:03:10.

to take something away and you have to ask what is more valuable.

:03:10.:03:15.

this primary school, parents think it is a good idea. More awareness

:03:15.:03:20.

from an earlier age and as much as possible when they are older.

:03:20.:03:23.

think it is a good idea, teaching the kids about responsibilities for

:03:23.:03:29.

money and looking after their futures. For my kids not to get in

:03:29.:03:33.

debt it's like other people have with credit cards. I would not one

:03:33.:03:40.

that for them. Enabling young people to avoid the

:03:40.:03:45.

financial pitfalls now being experienced by an older generation.

:03:45.:03:50.

Just before the programme, I spoke to Martin Lewis who set up the

:03:50.:03:55.

Money Saving Expert website, he is lending his support to the campaign.

:03:55.:04:01.

I asked him why a. We are a financially illiterate nation. We

:04:01.:04:05.

have just had a debt imbued financial crisis. I have been

:04:05.:04:12.

dealing with campaigns like financial protection insurance when

:04:12.:04:16.

�9 million have been no salt. What we want is responsible borrowers

:04:16.:04:21.

and consumers. But unless they have the understanding of how to be good

:04:21.:04:25.

consumers, none of this will work. It is a national disgrace that for

:04:25.:04:30.

21 years we have a educated away youth into debt when they go to

:04:30.:04:34.

university but never educated them about debt. We have lost the stigma

:04:34.:04:38.

of borrowing that have never replaced it with explaining to

:04:38.:04:42.

people how to borrow, when to borrow, how to take that judgment.

:04:42.:04:48.

We have one of the most complex consumer economies in the world,

:04:48.:04:52.

companies spend billions of pounds every year on teaching their staff

:04:52.:04:57.

to sell and that consumers do not get any buyers' training. Schools

:04:57.:05:02.

already have a tour nine subjects to teach, should this task be given

:05:02.:05:07.

to them instead of parents? We need to break a cycle of bad debts and

:05:07.:05:10.

financial illiteracy in this country is so asking the parents to

:05:11.:05:15.

do it unfortunately will not work. What we are trying to do is work

:05:15.:05:20.

within the existing curriculum without loading any more work on a

:05:20.:05:25.

hard-working teachers, we have mass, masses going to be divided into two

:05:25.:05:30.

subjects, within mass we would have a new unit called Financial

:05:30.:05:35.

numeracy. It looks at the building blocks, the numbers about finance.

:05:35.:05:41.

It is not just about APR and compound interest, it is about life

:05:41.:05:48.

decisions, so that would go into PSHE, and then we would combine the

:05:48.:05:52.

two subjects in a smooth, easy way. It would be a radical change to the

:05:52.:05:56.

way kids were good at money. talk about a PR, but there are many

:05:56.:06:03.

of us who went to school who cannot do APR, that does not reflect very

:06:03.:06:09.

well on the schools that taught us of mass. It is not maps, it is

:06:09.:06:16.

finance, it is a relatively complex equation. Understanding that,

:06:16.:06:19.

understanding there is no simplicity to APR, understanding

:06:19.:06:26.

that if I said lend me �20 this week and then in give me a pint,

:06:26.:06:36.
:06:36.:06:37.

that would be 143,000 % APR. I think some parents might have

:06:37.:06:44.

something to say about that one. Who should be teaching our children

:06:44.:06:54.
:06:54.:07:08.

Should they be taught at primary school or are there other things to

:07:08.:07:13.

learn? What you think about what Martin said about parents there?

:07:13.:07:19.

Look forward to hearing from you. In a moment: Managers at Lincoln

:07:19.:07:24.

Cathedral say there is no alarm over its inclusion on a list of at-

:07:24.:07:29.

risk buildings. A nursery in Lincolnshire has been

:07:29.:07:33.

set on fire by an arsonist. The Little Lambs Day Nursery in

:07:33.:07:39.

Gainsborough was badly damaged in the fire last night. The police and

:07:39.:07:43.

fire service are investigating. A mother and child have escaped

:07:43.:07:47.

unhurt from a house fire in East at Hull. Firefighters say an

:07:47.:07:51.

electrical fault on a laptop computer is most likely the cause

:07:51.:07:54.

of the fire which broke out in the living room. The mother and child

:07:54.:07:59.

were asleep upstairs at the time and were woken by smoke alarms.

:07:59.:08:04.

am gutted, happy that everyone is safe, though. Obviously, really

:08:04.:08:09.

gutted about the house, but that can be mended, and we are safe, me

:08:09.:08:14.

and my daughter are saved, so that is the main thing. This is a

:08:14.:08:21.

devastating reoccurrence from the family but it is good news in that

:08:21.:08:25.

simple actions have meant that they have got out safely. I would heed

:08:25.:08:33.

everybody else to take that advice. A year ago many parts of of the

:08:33.:08:37.

country were brought to a standstill for days on end in the

:08:37.:08:42.

sub-zero temperatures. To avoid a repeat of grit and salt shortages,

:08:42.:08:46.

local councils in our area have brought in thousands of tons of

:08:46.:08:49.

extra before the cold weather arrives.

:08:49.:08:53.

Two years of some of the worst winter weather on record. Snow-

:08:53.:09:03.
:09:03.:09:03.

covered roads and icy pavements causing an incident and injury.

:09:03.:09:08.

lot of the work would be for care homes and the Primary Care Trust

:09:08.:09:13.

and also for hospitals, we did quite a bit of work with Hull Royal

:09:13.:09:18.

Infirmary, moving people to and from. A lot of that is to do with

:09:18.:09:25.

key worker movements. This winter, councils say it will not be a case

:09:25.:09:29.

of third time lucky, simply better preparation. Some have invested in

:09:29.:09:34.

new facilities and others are empowering their communities to do

:09:34.:09:39.

more if it cold weather strikes. have initiatives to have snow

:09:39.:09:44.

wardens in each of the parishes. They will act as our eyes and ears

:09:44.:09:48.

and develop priorities within those parishes and serve those

:09:48.:09:53.

communities directly. At least three councils have increased grit

:09:53.:10:01.

supplies this season. Hull city council is up by 2000 tonnes. And

:10:01.:10:05.

Lincolnshire is up by 11,000 to move them to more than 40,000

:10:05.:10:10.

tonnes. On top of that, the East Riding Council has increased its

:10:10.:10:15.

storage capacity as well. The the major change we have made is to

:10:15.:10:20.

increase our stock level I just around 3,000 tonnes. It gives us a

:10:20.:10:24.

little bit extra storage capacity given that we have got 1000 square

:10:24.:10:29.

miles to cover and we can use thousands of tons of salt every

:10:29.:10:33.

week. It is increasing that resilience a little bit for the

:10:33.:10:37.

East Riding. This time last year, gritters were working around the

:10:37.:10:43.

clock. But even if our temperatures to drop in a few days' time,

:10:43.:10:47.

councils insist they will cope but they are hoping that local

:10:47.:10:50.

communities will come together in areas where help simply is not

:10:50.:10:55.

available. Police have confirmed the names of

:10:55.:11:01.

two people who died on an East Yorkshire road. 28-year-old Julie

:11:01.:11:05.

McDougall and a Terrence Murray who was 48 both died when their car

:11:05.:11:11.

overturned at around 5am on Saturday morning. Conditions were

:11:11.:11:15.

described as a treacherous. Two other passengers were injured.

:11:15.:11:19.

A 19-year-old woman is in a serious condition in hospital after being

:11:19.:11:23.

knocked down by a car in Cleethorpes. It happened in a car

:11:23.:11:26.

park of the High Street in the early hours of yesterday.

:11:26.:11:29.

Humberside Police are investigating whether the woman had already been

:11:29.:11:34.

struck by another vehicle. It will take 15 years just to stop

:11:34.:11:38.

the roof leaking at Lincoln Cathedral. But officials there are

:11:38.:11:42.

wondering how they will raise millions of pounds every year for

:11:42.:11:45.

repairs in these difficult economic times. A visit by Prince Charles

:11:45.:11:51.

last month has put the cathedral's recently acquired at risk status

:11:51.:11:55.

back into the spotlight. It is the only cathedral in the country to be

:11:55.:11:59.

given the label. It has been called the finest

:11:59.:12:04.

Gothic building in Europe, but at more than nine -- more than 900

:12:04.:12:08.

years old, main Tain in Lincoln Cathedral is a DIY a nightmare. It

:12:09.:12:17.

is hoped the at risk label will help. There is no risk that the

:12:17.:12:21.

cathedral is about to fall down. It is a rallying call for everyone to

:12:21.:12:25.

invest in the future of these vitally important historic places.

:12:25.:12:32.

The list of jobs is lengthy. There are turrets to fix and Great Tom,

:12:32.:12:37.

the main bell, has been silenced while its springs are mended.

:12:37.:12:42.

does not surprise me because it is a very great, Auld, a huge building

:12:42.:12:46.

with a lot of fine carvings. So, no, it must be like painting the Forth

:12:46.:12:52.

Bridge. It does surprise me now you have told me it costs �50,000 a

:12:52.:12:56.

week to keep going. I had never thought about the financial side of

:12:56.:13:01.

it, really. Last month, Royal help was enlisted to head up money

:13:01.:13:06.

raising efforts. Every repair is a specialist job, adding up to a

:13:06.:13:11.

yearly bill of millions. We need to continue, year-on-year, to raise

:13:11.:13:15.

funds to do the repair and maintenance. We do not feel that

:13:15.:13:20.

Lincoln Cathedral is ever going to be without scaffolding. For its

:13:20.:13:24.

profile, the type of stone, and how decorative it is, we will have an

ongoing restoration programme. label may mean that this Gothic

:13:44.:13:48.

ahead tonight: Perfect 10 - Grimsby Town stretch out their unbeaten run

:13:48.:13:56.

and look for glory in the FA Cup. Home at last - a Cleethorpes sailor

:14:36.:14:46.

at 7am this morning. We send a search party it for you it and you

:14:48.:14:58.
:14:58.:15:01.

Quite unsettled with the rain in the west of our region. That will

:15:01.:15:04.

clear later tonight but with sunny intervals and scattered showers

:15:04.:15:12.

tomorrow. One or two of the showers could be particularly cold.

:15:12.:15:18.

Normally, south-westerly winds are mild but there is this area of low

:15:18.:15:22.

pressure. It will be chilly with some welcome rain across

:15:22.:15:28.

Lincolnshire. There is still a drought order in place so this will

:15:28.:15:36.

be useful. Within the next hour or so, everywhere will be wet and

:15:36.:15:41.

windy. Winds could reach 50 miles per hour with some locally heavy

:15:41.:15:50.

rain. Most places will become die at around 5am tomorrow.

:15:50.:16:00.
:16:00.:16:07.

Temperatures will reach the Celsius. It will be a cold start with strong

:16:07.:16:11.

south-westerly wind back. A few scattered showers coming through

:16:11.:16:16.

from time to time. One or two will be on the wintry side with some

:16:16.:16:21.

hail and sleet. There will be plenty of dry and bright weather in

:16:21.:16:26.

between. Top temperatures will be academic because there is a

:16:26.:16:30.

significant wind-chill tomorrow. Top temperatures around five

:16:30.:16:35.

Celsius. An early warning in force and a lot of uncertainty with the

:16:35.:16:45.
:16:45.:16:47.

potential for Severe weather on You had a lie-in and we want to

know... You do not want to know. Lots of emails, texts and tweets

after Friday's show. Figures showed North East Lincolnshire in the top

:16:54.:16:58.

ten places in the country for smoking. Almost a quarter of

:16:58.:17:01.

pregnant women in the area carry on smoking - twice the national

:17:01.:17:11.

average. In some parts of Grimsby, nearly half the population smoke.

:17:11.:17:21.
:17:21.:17:52.

They've spent years in the doldrums but there are signs Grimsby Town

:17:52.:17:55.

are undergoing a revival. Grimsby, who lost their league status two

:17:55.:18:01.

years ago, are unbeaten in 10 games. Now, as our sports reporter Simon

:18:01.:18:03.

Clark explains, a prestigious FA cup game with Sheffield United

:18:03.:18:13.
:18:13.:18:13.

awaits them if they beat Salisbury tomorrow.

:18:13.:18:19.

Bright, crisp, clear and sunny. A perfect way to describe the current

:18:19.:18:23.

feeling for Grimsby Town. The orange bits are the spell have also

:18:24.:18:30.

had some say in their fortunes. He is catching the eye as he showed in

:18:30.:18:40.
:18:40.:18:42.

his recent 7-0 demolition of If we playwright, the gaffer will

:18:42.:18:47.

look towards this their game at Sheffield United. The fans will

:18:47.:18:53.

want to play against bedsides again. It would be nice to take them back

:18:53.:18:57.

and give them some memories for today as a poster only yesterday.

:18:57.:19:02.

Over the years, we have reported on Grimsby town's decline and fall.

:19:02.:19:08.

Today, we are finally getting a sense that this side can look

:19:08.:19:13.

forward to a better tomorrow. Grimsby used to play Sheffield

:19:13.:19:20.

United on a regular basis. One expert says, they might again.

:19:20.:19:25.

These matches have brought a bit of stability. They brought their own

:19:25.:19:33.

players in the summer. They're playing more the way they wanted.

:19:33.:19:38.

Cleethorpes's opinion on the Mafia's was debated. There is some

:19:38.:19:45.

improvement. Hopefully they can pull it off. They are doing well in

:19:45.:19:49.

the last couple of results have been brilliant. This down develops

:19:49.:19:54.

many youngsters in then you do not see them. If Grimsby Town had the

:19:54.:20:00.

youngsters playing, I would watch. The team has to win some hearts and

:20:00.:20:03.

minds but there are on the right track. Hull City are fifth in the

:20:03.:20:07.

Championship after beating Coventry City. Nick Barmby has now won four

:20:07.:20:10.

of his six games since taking charge. Scunthorpe United lost

:20:10.:20:13.

again at home and face a Christmas near the League One relegation zone.

:20:13.:20:23.
:20:23.:20:23.

Kate Sweeting reports. Hull's revival under the Nick

:20:23.:20:27.

Barmby continued with victory over bottom-of-the-table Coventry. The

:20:27.:20:32.

only goal of the game came on the 60 minute mark. Nick Barmby said he

:20:32.:20:37.

was pleased with his team's overall performance. We knew it would be a

:20:37.:20:41.

difficult game and Coventry around the position they do not want to be

:20:41.:20:47.

in so it would be a scrappy game. I thought we dealt with it well and

:20:47.:20:51.

the attitude and commitment of the players was good even though it was

:20:51.:20:57.

not the greatest of games. Sometimes you have to win ugly.

:20:57.:21:02.

League One, Scunthorpe United were defeated 2-1. They took an early

:21:02.:21:08.

lead. Parallel equalised with this low shot into the far corner.

:21:08.:21:13.

Scunthorpe lost out on a point thanks to a late winner.

:21:13.:21:16.

Former Scunthorpe United boss Brian Laws embarked on a new career

:21:16.:21:21.

tonight. He was the guest presenter on BBC Radio Humberside's popular

:21:21.:21:24.

evening show Sportstalk. Among the topics under discussion was the

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

plight of his former side. They have had a lot of problems over the

:21:35.:21:37.

last year and they are in a transitional period and that is

:21:37.:21:40.

tough. I still believe, and I have seen the team, they're good enough

:21:40.:21:43.

to stay up. The draw's been made for the second

:21:43.:21:46.

round of the FA trophy with three of our teams involved. Boston

:21:46.:21:49.

United will travel south to Dartford. Grimsby Town have a home

:21:49.:21:53.

tie against with Hornchurch or Farnborough. And Lincoln City

:21:53.:22:01.

welcome Carshalton Athletic to Sincil Bank. The games will be

:22:02.:22:06.

played on the 14th January. Since the digital switchover in

:22:06.:22:08.

August, some viewers in South Yorkshire, especially around

:22:08.:22:11.

Sheffield and Doncaster, have been receiving this edition of Look

:22:11.:22:13.

North, rather than your local version presented by Harry Gration

:22:13.:22:17.

digital signals. While we're delighted to welcome you as viewers,

From Christmas trees to nativity scenes - there are many things

:23:04.:23:07.

you'd expect to see in Beverley Minster during the festive season.

:23:07.:23:10.

But this week, a 40-foot long model train set is making the historic

:23:10.:23:13.

building its home. It's part of the campaign to reopen the Beverley to

:23:14.:23:16.

York railway line which was closed in 1965 following the Beeching

:23:16.:23:22.

Now the way it is, people are probably crying out for a rail link.

One of the stars of this internet video which has now been watched by

more than two million people has returned home to Cleethorpes today.

The crew of HMS Ocean recorded the Christmas film at the end of

operations in Libya, and we showed it here on Look North on Thursday.

:23:51.:23:54.

Well, today, Jade Fraser visited her local school to thank them for

:23:54.:23:59.

their support while she was away. Tarah Welsh has the story.

:23:59.:24:03.

Back on dry land after nine months at sea. Jade Fraser and the rest of

:24:03.:24:08.

the crew received a heroes' welcome this weekend. And not just because

they'd been fighting in Libya for A sea of viewers watched their

:24:19.:24:29.

version of Mariah Carey's Christmas hit, and here's Jade. I just can't

:24:29.:24:32.

believe that people have actually heard of it and are saying I am

:24:32.:24:39.

famous. I was stopped in Tesco by one of my little brother's teachers.

:24:39.:24:43.

It is mad to come home when people recognise me. It is such a small

town and nobody ever really he is about the Navy or what we do.

:24:47.:24:51.

she's even got some fan mail. At 21, Jade's already seen much of the

:24:51.:24:54.

world through her job as a naval aircraft handler. But today she was

back in Grimsby sharing her story with local school children.

to Libya. The crew thought they'd be away until January. When read it

told we were coming home for Christmas, the noise was amazing.

:25:19.:25:23.

The celebration video has sent that feeling round the world. Even

Mariah Carey said it made her day. But having Jade home for Christmas

:25:26.:25:35.

has made her mum's year. I am just constantly waiting for her to come

:25:35.:25:40.

home and when she came home, it was around midnight and it was amazing.

:25:40.:25:45.

It was lovely. Jade will set sail on the HMS Ocean again next year.

:25:45.:25:50.

But not before spending a merry Christmas at home.

:25:50.:25:53.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:25:53.:25:57.

David Cameron defends his EU veto - he says it was the right thing to

:25:57.:26:01.

do but Labour warn that Britain is now isolated.

:26:01.:26:05.

As many struggle in our area to pay for Christmas, there are calls for

:26:05.:26:12.

all children to be taught personal finance lessons in schools. We can

:26:12.:26:16.

talk about responsible lending and responsible companies, but what we

:26:16.:26:20.

really want is responsible borrowers and consumers. Unless

:26:20.:26:23.

they have the education and understanding of how to be good

:26:23.:26:27.

consumers, none of this will work. Tomorrow's weather: Cold and very

:26:27.:26:29.

windy with sunny intervals and scattered wintry showers. Strong to

:26:29.:26:39.

gale force Southwest wind. Maximum temperature of five Celsius.

:26:39.:26:45.

Response coming in on that story. First from Leanne - Isle of Martyn

:26:45.:26:50.

Lewis. He is right that maths and finance are very different and many

:26:50.:26:54.

people would not be in a mess if they were taught this in school.

:26:54.:26:57.

Send the bankers on this course as well.

:26:57.:27:02.

This is from Rebecca, a primary teacher. She said, teachers are

:27:02.:27:06.

having to take on more and more of the parental duties. Some things

:27:06.:27:10.

are not the jobs of a teacher. Parents need to take responsibility

:27:10.:27:13.

for teaching their children the basics of life.

:27:13.:27:16.

Martin says it is not the parents job because they will not do it

:27:16.:27:22.

right. Another says supply schools are

:27:22.:27:25.

teaching personal finance but it is important because it does not give

:27:25.:27:30.

them a GCSE. It goes on to say that every week is a battle to make them

:27:30.:27:32.
