Good Evening and welcome to Look North. A man remains in a critical

:00:11.:00:14.

but stable condition in hospital tonight, following a fire at a

:00:14.:00:16.

block of flats in Lincoln. Emergency services were called to

:00:16.:00:20.

the building on West Parade early yesterday morning. The injured man

:00:20.:00:23.

is being treated for severe burns at a specialist unit in Nottingham.

:00:23.:00:27.

Police say they are not look for anyone else in connection with the

:00:27.:00:30.

fire. Some local residents are concerned the building is now in a

:00:30.:00:38.

dangerous condition. Looking at it now, it is not in a

:00:38.:00:44.

safe condition. You have loose slates and there is gale-force

:00:44.:00:49.

winds and rain. It doesn't look safe.

:00:49.:00:51.

Meanwhile, investigations are continuing into another suspected

:00:51.:00:54.

arson attack at a Lincoln takeaway on Christmas Day. There was an

:00:55.:00:57.

explosion just before midnight at Tasty Provisions on St Mary's

:00:57.:01:01.

Street. Lincolnshire Police want to speak to a man who was wearing a

:01:01.:01:05.

black cap and seen running away from the scene at the time of the

:01:05.:01:09.

incident. RAF search and rescue teams based

:01:09.:01:12.

at Leconfield have been called out to four separate incidents within

:01:12.:01:15.

the past 24 hours, making this one of their busiest festive periods in

:01:15.:01:19.

recent years. The RAF's Sea King helicopter first dealt with two

:01:19.:01:22.

separate rescues in Filey and then a may day call, before being

:01:22.:01:24.

scrambled to airlift a French fishermen from his boat 70 miles

:01:24.:01:34.
:01:34.:01:45.

It was quite a tricky night out there. The vessel was heaving in

:01:45.:01:47.

the rough seas. A Lincolnshire police officer is on

:01:47.:01:50.

bail after being arrested on suspicion of drink driving. The 41

:01:50.:01:53.

year old was stopped in Lincoln a week before Christmas. He was off

:01:53.:01:57.

duty at the time. In a statement the police say the officer's been

:01:57.:01:59.

suspended. Police say there's growing concern for the welfare of

:01:59.:02:01.

a missing woman. 47-year-old Diann Conboy hasn't

:02:01.:02:05.

been seen since leaving her home in north Hull, more than a week ago.

:02:05.:02:08.

She's described as white, 5ft 3ins tall with a slim build and short

:02:08.:02:14.

brown hair. Humberside Police are urging people who live in the area

:02:14.:02:19.

to check sheds and garages. A community food shop that's opened

:02:19.:02:22.

in Hull has proved so successful the project could be extended to

:02:22.:02:28.

other towns and cities. The shop is on Hull's Thornton Estate, and is

:02:28.:02:38.
:02:38.:02:40.

one of the first of its kind in the It opened in October to provide

:02:40.:02:47.

healthy fruit and veg at low cost prices. Now, 10 weeks on the, the

:02:47.:02:51.

first co-operative food shop has gone from strength to strength. It

:02:51.:02:55.

is now selling good-quality meat also and for hundreds of families

:02:55.:03:00.

on the Thornton Estate, the message of healthy eating is spreading fast.

:03:00.:03:05.

People have waited a long time to get this facility that they really

:03:05.:03:10.

wanted. We asked them what they needed and they wanted a fresh

:03:10.:03:15.

fruit and veg shop, access to good, quality food. We have helped them

:03:15.:03:20.

do that and that is what we have provided. The prices are kept low

:03:20.:03:27.

because almost everyone here is a volunteer. Across the country, news

:03:27.:03:33.

of its success is travelling fast. These Community leaders have

:03:34.:03:36.

travelled from Leeds and Hartlepool with a view to launching similar

:03:36.:03:42.

schemes there. It is quite impressive. They have a lot of

:03:42.:03:46.

drive and determination and it involves the committee and asking

:03:46.:03:52.

what they want. It is based on what people want in this area. Over

:03:52.:03:57.

Christmas, special food boxes have been selling well. All that is

:03:57.:04:07.
:04:07.:04:08.

needed for a festive family dinner without breaking the bank.

:04:08.:04:14.

Ferries are once again able to leave on time after locks were

:04:14.:04:21.

fixed at the dock. Dog owners have repaired the lock gate.

:04:21.:04:25.

We need reassurance that it is not going to happen again. I presume

:04:25.:04:31.

there is a better contingency plan in place. The fact that it hasn't

:04:31.:04:35.

happened for gives me confidence that it is a one-off. There hasn't

:04:35.:04:39.

been a big public outcry but the fact that it hasn't been addressed

:04:39.:04:43.

for a long period of time is a disappointment.

:04:43.:04:46.

If Staff at RAF Waddington were up to three times busier than normal

:04:46.:04:49.

this year because of their important role in the overthrow of

:04:49.:04:52.

Colonel Gadaffi in Libya. The Station Commander says success in

:04:52.:04:54.

overseas campaigns has helped secure the base's reputation as

:04:54.:05:02.

central to Britain's Defences. It has been a big year for these

:05:03.:05:09.

planes and for those who operate them. They are spy planes used to

:05:09.:05:14.

gather information from the air and often used in conflict overseas.

:05:14.:05:19.

it is a surveillance platform. We are looking at the country, trying

:05:19.:05:24.

to give information to the commanders, the other aircraft and

:05:24.:05:28.

provide as much information as we can so we can make the did --

:05:28.:05:34.

correct decisions as a coalition and to make the population safe.

:05:34.:05:39.

the staff here were the first to be deployed in February and were the

:05:40.:05:45.

last to leave. Their efforts didn't go unnoticed, earning them praise

:05:45.:05:49.

from central Government and a visit from the Deputy Prime Minister in

:05:49.:05:53.

November. It is great to get reckoned -- recognition rights from

:05:53.:06:00.

the very top. We are an integral part of the command -- committee

:06:00.:06:07.

and consider ourselves part of the Lincolnshire area. This aeroplane

:06:07.:06:12.

is an iconic part of the Lincolnshire landscape.

:06:12.:06:17.

It was also the end of an era for another of the iconic aircraft. The

:06:17.:06:24.

name RAAD or one which took one last flight during the summer.

:06:24.:06:29.

was a very sad moment for myself, tinged with fond memories of the

:06:29.:06:35.

service but an opportunity to look ahead. They so much that is going

:06:35.:06:41.

to be happening at the station and it continues to grow. -- there is

:06:41.:06:46.

so much. For it looks as though 2012 will be

:06:46.:06:49.

no different. With roles at the Olympics and the Queen's Jubilee

:06:49.:06:58.

coming up, staff will have plenty It's been a bumper few months for

baby seals on the north Norfolk coast. In the last month and a half

:07:03.:07:07.

more than 750 pups have been born .There are now 30 times as many

seals born at Blakeney Point than 11 years ago.
