Good Evening and welcome to Look North. A man remains in a critical
but stable condition in hospital tonight, following a fire at a
block of flats in Lincoln. Emergency services were called to
the building on West Parade early yesterday morning. The injured man
is being treated for severe burns at a specialist unit in Nottingham.
Police say they are not look for anyone else in connection with the
fire. Some local residents are concerned the building is now in a
dangerous condition. Looking at it now, it is not in a
safe condition. You have loose slates and there is gale-force
winds and rain. It doesn't look safe.
Meanwhile, investigations are continuing into another suspected
arson attack at a Lincoln takeaway on Christmas Day. There was an
explosion just before midnight at Tasty Provisions on St Mary's
Street. Lincolnshire Police want to speak to a man who was wearing a
black cap and seen running away from the scene at the time of the
incident. RAF search and rescue teams based
at Leconfield have been called out to four separate incidents within
the past 24 hours, making this one of their busiest festive periods in
recent years. The RAF's Sea King helicopter first dealt with two
separate rescues in Filey and then a may day call, before being
scrambled to airlift a French fishermen from his boat 70 miles
It was quite a tricky night out there. The vessel was heaving in
the rough seas. A Lincolnshire police officer is on
bail after being arrested on suspicion of drink driving. The 41
year old was stopped in Lincoln a week before Christmas. He was off
duty at the time. In a statement the police say the officer's been
suspended. Police say there's growing concern for the welfare of
a missing woman. 47-year-old Diann Conboy hasn't
been seen since leaving her home in north Hull, more than a week ago.
She's described as white, 5ft 3ins tall with a slim build and short
brown hair. Humberside Police are urging people who live in the area
to check sheds and garages. A community food shop that's opened
in Hull has proved so successful the project could be extended to
other towns and cities. The shop is on Hull's Thornton Estate, and is
one of the first of its kind in the It opened in October to provide
healthy fruit and veg at low cost prices. Now, 10 weeks on the, the
first co-operative food shop has gone from strength to strength. It
is now selling good-quality meat also and for hundreds of families
on the Thornton Estate, the message of healthy eating is spreading fast.
People have waited a long time to get this facility that they really
wanted. We asked them what they needed and they wanted a fresh
fruit and veg shop, access to good, quality food. We have helped them
do that and that is what we have provided. The prices are kept low
because almost everyone here is a volunteer. Across the country, news
of its success is travelling fast. These Community leaders have
travelled from Leeds and Hartlepool with a view to launching similar
schemes there. It is quite impressive. They have a lot of
drive and determination and it involves the committee and asking
what they want. It is based on what people want in this area. Over
Christmas, special food boxes have been selling well. All that is
needed for a festive family dinner without breaking the bank.
Ferries are once again able to leave on time after locks were
fixed at the dock. Dog owners have repaired the lock gate.
We need reassurance that it is not going to happen again. I presume
there is a better contingency plan in place. The fact that it hasn't
happened for gives me confidence that it is a one-off. There hasn't
been a big public outcry but the fact that it hasn't been addressed
for a long period of time is a disappointment.
If Staff at RAF Waddington were up to three times busier than normal
this year because of their important role in the overthrow of
Colonel Gadaffi in Libya. The Station Commander says success in
overseas campaigns has helped secure the base's reputation as
central to Britain's Defences. It has been a big year for these
planes and for those who operate them. They are spy planes used to
gather information from the air and often used in conflict overseas.

to give information to the commanders, the other aircraft and
provide as much information as we can so we can make the did --
correct decisions as a coalition and to make the population safe.
the staff here were the first to be deployed in February and were the
last to leave. Their efforts didn't go unnoticed, earning them praise
from central Government and a visit from the Deputy Prime Minister in
November. It is great to get reckoned -- recognition rights from
the very top. We are an integral part of the command -- committee
and consider ourselves part of the Lincolnshire area. This aeroplane
is an iconic part of the Lincolnshire landscape.
It was also the end of an era for another of the iconic aircraft. The

service but an opportunity to look ahead. They so much that is going
to be happening at the station and it continues to grow. -- there is

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

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