A cold and windy night to come. The It ding. It is a landmark day for

the future of our region. -- Good evening. The engineering giant

:01:07.:01:10.

Siemens has confirmed it wants to build a multi-million pound factory

:01:10.:01:13.

in Hull which will bring thousands of jobs to the Humber region. The

:01:13.:01:19.

factory, which will be at the Alexandra Dock, will create up to

:01:19.:01:22.

1002 construction and engineering jobs, with many more are expected

:01:22.:01:26.

as other businesses relocate to the area. Building the factory will

:01:26.:01:30.

create 300 jobs. Once operational, the plant will need around 700

:01:30.:01:34.

staff. Longer term, there are predictions of thousands more jobs

:01:34.:01:41.

in related industries. Paul Murphy is at the docks this evening. One

:01:41.:01:48.

is this going to happen? There is a pal of planning documents nearly

:01:48.:01:52.

the size of the crane behind me which will be submitted to Hull

:01:52.:01:57.

City Council tomorrow. Decisions are hoping to be made by spring

:01:57.:02:06.

next year, and the site developed into 2014, and the first turbines

:02:06.:02:12.

produced in late 2014. Here's the focus of the �200 million

:02:12.:02:16.

investment, Hull's Alexandra Dock, and here is the vision. A state-of-

:02:16.:02:20.

the-art factory which will build and supplied thousands of offshore

:02:20.:02:24.

wind turbines to the North Sea. The formal application for planning

:02:24.:02:31.

consent brings the proposals much closer to reality. This is a very

:02:31.:02:35.

significant step for the project. A lot of work has been going on over

:02:35.:02:40.

the last 12 months, a lot of consultation and preparing the

:02:40.:02:47.

plans. This is a watershed moment for the project. In the coming

:02:47.:02:52.

years, thousands of wind turbines will be sited in the North Sea.

:02:52.:02:59.

Siemens believes Hull is the place to build them. Hull is very well

:02:59.:03:04.

located. It is a great location for it. It is a great prospect for jobs

:03:04.:03:09.

and growth for the area. region's hunger for jobs and growth

:03:09.:03:15.

has rarely been more evident. In the community around the docks, the

:03:15.:03:18.

announcement dominates conversation today. There are I have a teenage

:03:18.:03:26.

son who is trying to find work. There is nothing for him. I believe

:03:26.:03:31.

something like this could create jobs. I can see it will create jobs,

:03:31.:03:37.

but is it going to be for the local people, or will it attract people

:03:37.:03:42.

from outside Hull and give them the benefits of working? At Hull City

:03:42.:03:45.

Council revealed this morning it has already started talks with

:03:45.:03:50.

Siemens about training a work force fit for the factory. It is a

:03:50.:03:56.

massive, massive project. When you think of them the numbers -- when

:03:56.:04:00.

you think of the numbers, even if it is only 1,000 people, that is

:04:00.:04:08.

massive. We have to expand capacity. The first turbines could be running

:04:08.:04:13.

of the production line by the end of 2014. It is an investment which

:04:13.:04:15.

many believe will capitalise green energy growth throughout the Humber

:04:15.:04:22.

region. A to give an idea of the significance of the proposal, the

:04:22.:04:25.

Prime Minister has issued a statement welcoming -- welcoming

:04:25.:04:32.

the move, saying it is a good move not only for Hull but for the

:04:32.:04:37.

country. Joining me now from London is the

:04:37.:04:43.

Hull West and Hessle MP Alan Johnson. You must be very relieved.

:04:43.:04:49.

The champagne is bought, but not quite on ice! That's right. We

:04:49.:04:54.

still have to get through the planning process. The most

:04:55.:04:59.

difficult period was in the summer, when there was a need for a lot of

:04:59.:05:03.

political pressure to make sure government got a grip of this and

:05:03.:05:08.

we got through the negotiations that meant that Hull remained the

:05:08.:05:13.

preferred location when cities in Germany and Denmark put in a late

:05:13.:05:18.

bid, and there was some confusion and concern that Siemens were not

:05:18.:05:26.

getting the deal that was promised. We are over that. I think this is

:05:26.:05:31.

good news. We should be able to get to the winning post, given that

:05:31.:05:34.

everything between he and the winning post is fair to be within

:05:34.:05:38.

our control. If it is a planning application, it cannot take that

:05:38.:05:46.

long, and all the good will is there. But it has to be done

:05:46.:05:51.

properly. If there is one disgruntled person and they go to a

:05:51.:05:55.

judicial review, the whole thing is slowed up. It is quite right it is

:05:55.:05:59.

done properly. Karl Turner has worked very hard with people in

:05:59.:06:09.
:06:09.:06:09.

Victoria Dock. There were some concerns about noise from local

:06:09.:06:13.

residents. I think that has been dealt with. If we do not do this

:06:13.:06:18.

properly, it could come back to biters, so it has to go through the

:06:18.:06:24.

proper procedure. A 1,000 jobs, possibly 10 times that in the wider

:06:24.:06:32.

economy. Great news. Not soon enough for theirs at BAe. Well, or

:06:32.:06:42.
:06:42.:06:43.

tomorrow -- well, tomorrow is the BAe day. We are meeting people

:06:43.:06:51.

tomorrow. We hope to try to ensure that we keep aerospace

:06:51.:06:56.

manufacturing on the Humber, where it has been for 100 years. That is

:06:56.:07:04.

crucially important. The bit about Siemens is really important. If we

:07:04.:07:14.
:07:14.:07:15.

do lose jobs at BAe, if we time- based so that the workers with the

:07:15.:07:20.

skills that Siemens need can move into their jobs, that is great, as

:07:20.:07:30.
:07:30.:07:31.

well as keeping BAe open. Very good news. Thank you.

:07:31.:07:34.

Well today's announcement by Siemens is good for the future of

:07:34.:07:42.

jobs, how are people coping now? We have found that wages in parts of

:07:42.:07:45.

Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire are falling at a much faster rate than

:07:45.:07:52.

other areas of the country. Lincoln, West Linsey and Hull have seen a

:07:52.:07:56.

big drop in take-home pay. At the same time, the cost of living

:07:56.:08:01.

continues to rise. Here's Tim Iredale. Whether we are shopping at

:08:01.:08:06.

the supermarket, paying energy bills or filling up our cars, it

:08:06.:08:11.

seems household budgets are being stretched to the limit. Just as

:08:11.:08:16.

Committee, a mother and part-time worker from Hull. -- just ask any

:08:16.:08:24.

key. We are going to more discount stores, so cutting out luxuries and

:08:24.:08:29.

buying own brand. Inflation is running at just under 5%. In Hull,

:08:29.:08:36.

average salaries have gone down by 4.5 %. In West Linsey, which is

:08:36.:08:40.

have dropped more than 6%, and in Lincoln, the average salary has

:08:40.:08:46.

fallen by more than 13 %. It is clear many people in Lincoln are

:08:46.:08:51.

feeling the pinch. Wages are not keeping in pace with inflation, we

:08:52.:08:58.

all know that. We would all like more. The I still have to tighten

:08:58.:09:02.

my pockets. I used to go out regularly, and I do not do that

:09:02.:09:10.

half as much. We have to make cuts with food and going out so that we

:09:10.:09:15.

can pay the bills as normal. think that this is a man going down

:09:15.:09:23.

10 in the economy -- I think that this is a ongoing downturn in the

:09:23.:09:29.

economy. One of the consequences of rising inflation is increased

:09:29.:09:34.

borrowing, especially now in the run-up to Christmas. Credit unions

:09:34.:09:38.

like this one in Bridlington have seen a steady rise in customers.

:09:38.:09:44.

This year, in our credit union, we have paid out �320,000 in Christmas

:09:44.:09:50.

savings that people say up with us. Many of those people put up �1 or

:09:50.:09:55.

two a week to save up for Christmas, may be the extra they would have

:09:55.:10:01.

paid to a doorstep lender. Average wages have not fallen everywhere,

:10:01.:10:07.

but in the whole of our area, so only North Kesteven and East Linsey

:10:08.:10:11.

have seen salaries increase by more than the rate of inflation.

:10:11.:10:18.

Tim is joining me now. Why are we struggling? You only have to look

:10:18.:10:22.

at the areas where wages have been falling. Hull, Gainsborough,

:10:22.:10:26.

Lincoln. These are places which have traditionally relied on

:10:26.:10:30.

manufacturing jobs and jobs in the public sector. Both areas which

:10:30.:10:35.

have been squeezed recently. What saves wrath happened is that as

:10:35.:10:40.

unemployment has risen, it is creating an ever more competitive

:10:40.:10:44.

jobs market, and driven wages down. The government still believes that

:10:44.:10:54.
:10:54.:10:57.

public sector can come to the rescue. That is why David Cameron

:10:57.:11:03.

saw today's announcement as such a positive thing. Thank you very much.

:11:03.:11:08.

What are you going to do to cope with the rising prices? What would

:11:08.:11:13.

you go without, or do you have any ideas for saving money? Also, what

:11:13.:11:20.

do you think about the new jobs for Hull? Do you think the new jobs

:11:20.:11:30.
:11:30.:11:42.

We will have some of your Commons if you are quick before we finish

:11:43.:11:48.

at 7pm. -- some of your comments. A lorry driver has been airlifted

:11:48.:11:52.

to hospital following a crash on the 15 in Lincolnshire this morning.

:11:52.:11:57.

A lorry and a single decker bus wear involved in the accident just

:11:57.:12:02.

after 7am this morning north of Caenby Corner. The road has

:12:02.:12:07.

recently reopened. Pictures have been released of a

:12:07.:12:10.

dramatic nine our lifeboat rescue of the Lincolnshire coast which

:12:10.:12:16.

left crew members suffering the effects of hypothermia. The

:12:16.:12:21.

lifeboat was called out to reform a fishing boat which was taking on

:12:21.:12:26.

water. Crews had to deal with three metre waves as well as freezing

:12:26.:12:31.

temperatures. The crew were eventually return safely to Boston.

:12:32.:12:35.

Hospitals and Lincolnshire are struggling to hit targets for

:12:35.:12:37.

receiving ambulance patients, according to figures obtained by

:12:37.:12:41.

the BBC. The process of handing over patients should take 50

:12:41.:12:44.

minutes, but across the East Midlands, this time it is being

:12:44.:12:49.

missed in a third of cases. United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

:12:49.:12:52.

says it always puts patients can safety first command handover times

:12:52.:12:57.

have improved since August. Two schoolboys for Hornsea are to

:12:57.:13:00.

receive a national award for trying to save the life of one of their

:13:00.:13:05.

friends. Back in June, 15-year-old Josh Fell collapsed whilst playing

:13:05.:13:14.

football, but despite the two boys best efforts, he later died in

:13:14.:13:17.

hospital from a rare heart condition. James Oliphant and Jacob

:13:17.:13:23.

Richards have been commended for their actions.

:13:23.:13:27.

Remembering her friend on his special bench. Jacob and James are

:13:27.:13:31.

determined not to forget the good times. He was a fun person to be

:13:31.:13:37.

with. He was always playing out with us. Really happy and never a

:13:38.:13:43.

sad moment with him. In June of this year, football fanatic Josh

:13:43.:13:47.

Fell suddenly stopped breathing while playing football. Josh just

:13:47.:13:52.

sat down and laid down. We turned him over and he was blown. It was a

:13:52.:13:59.

big shock. -- he was blue. I checked his pulse. There was not a

:13:59.:14:07.

pulse. We called an ambulance after performing CPR. After the ambulance

:14:07.:14:12.

came, I Tom James what to do and the ambulance came. A I was

:14:12.:14:18.

freaking out. I was panicking. I was trying to keep calm for Josh's

:14:18.:14:23.

sake, and doing everything we could to try to keep him going. We would

:14:23.:14:27.

do anything for him. Josh later died to the hospital, but his

:14:27.:14:32.

father wanted the two boys to be recognised from actions. They have

:14:32.:14:37.

successfully been honoured with an award from the Royal Humane Society.

:14:37.:14:43.

Very brave. I would not been able to do it at 14. We cannot believe

:14:43.:14:49.

what they tried to do. The family later discovered that just died

:14:49.:14:54.

from a rare condition which carries no symptoms, called sudden death

:14:54.:15:00.

syndrome. It kills 12 people a week. The family are now raising money

:15:00.:15:05.

for cardiac screenings to take place in schools. They are going to

:15:05.:15:09.

use five rooms at our local secondary school. They will bring

:15:09.:15:14.

specialists with them and have an ECG. If it pick something up, it

:15:14.:15:20.

will do some good. If we can make a difference just for one person,

:15:20.:15:25.

they will not have the heartache we had. Almost �20,000 has now been

:15:25.:15:35.
:15:35.:15:38.

raised in the hope that others will And dreadfully tragic story for the

:15:38.:15:43.

family but a well deserved award for the boys. I am sure they will

:15:43.:15:51.

be watching tonight. Still ahead tonight - some good news for

:15:52.:15:55.

Grimsby as it is chosen as one of the first towns to get a new local

:15:55.:16:05.
:16:05.:16:06.

TV channel. And we cannot wait - the seasonal

:16:06.:16:14.

singalong in Sleaford that is aiming to become a Christmas hit.

:16:14.:16:24.
:16:24.:16:25.

I'm no someone I might buy that for for Christmas. -- I know someone.

:16:25.:16:30.

Tonight's photograph is of their frozen lake in Lincoln.

:16:30.:16:40.
:16:40.:16:44.

I am sure that was as forecast! I notice you first message on Twitter

:16:44.:16:54.
:16:54.:16:57.

this morning was at 4:40am! Do you A cold one is forecast for the next

:16:57.:17:05.

24 hours. If you have been outside, my goodness, it is very cold. A

:17:05.:17:15.

significant wind chill, although many areas have been very dry.

:17:15.:17:19.

Apart from the odd shower, it should stay dry. You can see the

:17:19.:17:25.

dried gap in the cloud across the UK. That is across Yorkshire,

:17:25.:17:33.

Lincolnshire and the north Norfolk. Many places will be dry tonight.

:17:33.:17:37.

Just one or two wintry showers. The strength of the wind will not cause

:17:37.:17:47.
:17:47.:17:48.

too many problems, gusts of around 50 mph. A windy night but a dry one.

:17:48.:17:52.

If you have some shelter from the wind, there could be some icy

:17:52.:18:02.
:18:02.:18:06.

patches near you. At cold, bracing start to the day. A strong, south-

:18:06.:18:11.

westerly wind continuing all day long. If you wrap up well, it is

:18:11.:18:17.

not too bad. A chance of one or two showers. A wintry flavour to some

:18:18.:18:26.

of those. Top temperatures not much above freezing. There will be

:18:26.:18:32.

significant wind chill. We mentioned the risk of a disruptive

:18:32.:18:42.
:18:42.:18:45.

No need to laugh halfway through the forecast, I do not know what

:18:45.:18:51.

was funny! My friends tell me that it is gingham. I would Colleter

:18:51.:19:01.
:19:01.:19:04.

tablecloth! -- I would say that it is a table cloth! Grimsby has been

:19:04.:19:11.

chosen as the only town to get its own TV channel.

:19:11.:19:15.

The rest or cities. It had more support than anywhere else in the

:19:15.:19:22.

country. Today, the top story at the local TV station was about

:19:22.:19:25.

itself! Channel 7 has been available to

:19:25.:19:29.

some viewers since the mid-90s, but today's announcement means that it

:19:29.:19:36.

could be available to all and review. We are the only local

:19:37.:19:44.

television station run in the country. We are delighted. It looks

:19:44.:19:52.

like it has had some influence at ministerial level. It is all part

:19:52.:20:02.
:20:02.:20:03.

of the Government's plan to make Grimsby has a history of this and

:20:03.:20:12.

it is Channel 7 that it has had a long history of support. It was up

:20:12.:20:20.

against some stiff competition. 20 areas have been chosen across the

:20:20.:20:25.

country. All of them were cities except Grimsby. It was Grimsby that

:20:25.:20:29.

got the most backing from the local people during a national

:20:29.:20:36.

consultation. Even the local news on telly spread out over quite a

:20:36.:20:39.

distance, where's this will be about Grimsby and Cleethorpes, I

:20:40.:20:44.

assume. We like to share what is going on in the locality. If you

:20:44.:20:50.

live in a place, you need to know about it, don't you? You get local

:20:50.:20:55.

things going on. It is not just people going on -- he then North

:20:55.:21:01.

Leigh Lincolnshire that will benefit. It will broadcast to part

:21:01.:21:10.

of Scunthorpe or and could crawl across the water to Hull. -- or

:21:10.:21:13.

across the water. New laws are needed before the services can

:21:13.:21:23.
:21:23.:21:24.

start but today marks a key step in Grimsby becoming a local TV pioneer.

:21:24.:21:33.

Some good news from Grimsby. Lots of text at the V reported that

:21:33.:21:43.
:21:43.:21:46.

the Brigg and Goole MP wanted to get children from as young as five

educated end managing money. Just a Thank you for those. Now, Great Tom,

the ancient bell of Lincoln Cathedral, this chiming again after

:22:32.:22:35.

repairs were finished much earlier than expected.

:22:35.:22:39.

It was feared that the new year would have to be run again by a

:22:39.:22:45.

recorded chime after the bell broke, but Master craftsmen have worked

:22:45.:22:51.

around the clock in time to fix it for Christmas. Grimsby Town could

:22:51.:22:54.

earn a money-spinning tie at Sheffield United if they win

:22:54.:23:02.

tonight in the FA Cup. The face Salisbury in a second-round replay

:23:02.:23:05.

and they come into the match on an unbeaten run stretching back 10

:23:05.:23:11.

games. It has not quite had the effect on the league position

:23:11.:23:14.

because it has encompassed Cup games, but hopefully that is a

:23:14.:23:24.

matter of time. BBC Radio, side -- BBC Radio Humberside have full

:23:24.:23:34.

coverage. Last night, we brought you the Navy Christmas video with 2

:23:34.:23:38.

million hits on the Internet. Tonight, it is another Christmas

:23:38.:23:46.

wannabes star. Chris Clark, who records under the name of Dedboy,

:23:46.:23:55.

has taken to the streets in support of his song. It has had more than

:23:56.:24:02.

11,000 hits a muted. He has been telling us about it. -- 11,000 hits

:24:02.:24:12.
:24:12.:24:16.

or you sued. -- on YouTube. I wrote the song quite a while ago. There

:24:16.:24:20.

were lots of Christmas songs in the 70s and 80s but not anything

:24:21.:24:25.

Christmas related that recently. I thought, why doesn't anyone write

:24:25.:24:32.

one? A ticket on myself to write one. I did a video in my home town

:24:32.:24:38.

of Sleaford and put it on the internet. It was my good friend Ben

:24:38.:24:48.

and rich the film this for me on hand-held cameras. -- Richard to

:24:48.:24:57.

film this on a hand-held camera. -- who filmed this. I was a bit

:24:57.:25:02.

embarrassed doing the whole thing. I have a look on my face saying, I

:25:02.:25:12.
:25:12.:25:21.

am not really with this guy! Is this the one? Is this the one in

:25:21.:25:27.

the charts? Yes! I think he is brilliant! It is a good song,

:25:27.:25:37.
:25:37.:25:57.

Give us a kiss, Sam tie! -- Santa claws! He is absolutely barmy but

:25:57.:26:07.
:26:07.:26:08.
