Good Evening. The head of the UK Anti-Doping

:00:07.:00:09.

Organisation has told BBC Look North he's "disappointed" with the

:00:09.:00:13.

lack of integrity of former staff at Hull FC. It comes after three

:00:13.:00:15.

previous employees, including a player, were found guilty of anti-

:00:15.:00:18.

drugs violations. This afternoon the club said that another player,

:00:18.:00:20.

Martin Aspinwall, won't be sacked despite appearing in court today

:00:20.:00:30.
:00:30.:00:36.

for a separate incident. Former Hull FC centre Martin

:00:36.:00:39.

Gleeson's three year ban for drug taking cast a shadow over Hull FC.

:00:39.:00:42.

And now UK Anti-Doping has banned former Chief Executive James Rule

:00:42.:00:45.

for two years for covering up the positive drugs test along with ex-

:00:45.:00:49.

conditioning coach Ben Cooper. It's the first time a non-athlete has

:00:49.:00:59.
:00:59.:01:00.

been successfully prosecuted. We were disappointed when we got

:01:00.:01:03.

the first hearing and we found out that there were inconsistent

:01:03.:01:07.

messages in the story from both sides. We need to make sure that

:01:07.:01:12.

people around the athletes are operating with integrity and that

:01:12.:01:16.

led us to investigate the case further.

:01:16.:01:18.

Hull FC says it was "extremely disappointed" at how former staff

:01:18.:01:24.

had handled the incident. In a statement it said, "The new

:01:24.:01:27.

structure at the club will strive to ensure the good name of Hull FC

:01:27.:01:33.

is not tarnished again." But today another Hull FC player did just

:01:33.:01:43.
:01:43.:01:44.

that, appearing at Hull Magistrates Court. He has to pay �3,000 in

:01:45.:01:51.

fines and costs because of his drunken behaviour. He was suspended

:01:51.:01:55.

from Hull FC and today magistrate told him that fans do not want to

:01:56.:01:59.

hear this kind of thing about a sporting hero.

:01:59.:02:03.

And neither will his club. Hull FC will be hoping these stories are

:02:03.:02:06.

the last time the Black and Whites hit the headlines for all the wrong

:02:06.:02:12.

reasons. A man has died after a collision in

:02:12.:02:14.

Lincolnshire near Wragby. The accident happened just before six

:02:14.:02:17.

this morning in South Willingham after a silver Citroen left the

:02:17.:02:20.

road. Paramedics were called out but the driver was pronounced dead

:02:20.:02:25.

at the scene. Humberside Police have called in

:02:25.:02:29.

extra help in their search for a missing woman from Hull. 47-year-

:02:29.:02:34.

old Diann Conboy was reported missing nine days ago. The

:02:34.:02:36.

Association of Lowland Search and Rescue have been examining the site

:02:36.:02:39.

of Sir Henry Cooper School alongside police officers.

:02:39.:02:42.

An increasing number of expectant mums in Hull are opting to give

:02:42.:02:46.

birth at home. Midwives say there could be a 15 % rise in home births

:02:46.:02:49.

by the end of the financial year. It comes after the area's Jubilee

:02:49.:02:51.

Birth Centre, which offered a natural approach to childbirth,

:02:52.:03:01.

closed due to staffing issues. Nine-month-old Teja is very

:03:01.:03:07.

comfortable at home. She was born in a hired birthing pool in her

:03:07.:03:17.
:03:17.:03:17.

parents' dining room. Unusual, as she is mum Cat's first child.

:03:17.:03:25.

at home is the most relaxing -- relaxing environment you can be end.

:03:25.:03:31.

60 years ago, Cat's story would have been the norm. In the 1960s,

:03:31.:03:35.

nationally, around 30 % of all babies were born at home. As the

:03:35.:03:39.

NHS developed, this has gradually fallen. Last year it fell to 2.5 %.

:03:39.:03:42.

But officials in Hull say there could be a 15 % increase on last

:03:42.:03:52.
:03:52.:04:01.

years home births. We would really love to see more berths at home.

:04:01.:04:05.

There will be much less intervention.

:04:05.:04:09.

The fact that Hull is bucking the national trend was the talk of this

breastfeeding support session. think it is because there is not a

:04:12.:04:17.

lot of choice in Hull at the moment. I was originally booked into the

:04:17.:04:22.

centre and I found out it was closing which was a bit of a shock.

:04:22.:04:24.

The Jubilee Birth Centre, East Yorkshire's only natural birthing

:04:24.:04:27.

unit, closed in July due to staff shortages. Although pleased about

:04:27.:04:31.

the rise in home births, The Royal College of Midwives warn it is not

:04:31.:04:38.

for every woman. This is an option for women with an uncomplicated

:04:38.:04:43.

pregnancy and who are at low risk. That is where the choice ends.

:04:43.:04:46.

The Future of the Jubilee Centre will be announced in Janaury. Until

:04:46.:04:51.

then, more babies could be welcomed into the world in their own home.

:04:51.:04:54.

Victims of flooding in Hull are worried their insurance could rise

:04:54.:04:56.

next year after a deal between the government and the insurance

:04:56.:04:59.

industry comes to an end. After the floods in 2007, insurance

:04:59.:05:02.

companies agreed to keep premiums down if the government helped

:05:02.:05:10.

minimise the risk of flooding. But that deal will end in 2012.

:05:10.:05:13.

The National Farmers Union says their members' incomes are on the

:05:13.:05:17.

up in our area despite the difficult economic conditions. The

:05:17.:05:19.

union says supermarket dominance means vegetable growers' margins

:05:19.:05:24.

are still tight, but cereal farmers are faring better. Among the worst

:05:24.:05:26.

hit are organic farmers, as shoppers move away from premium

:05:26.:05:30.

produce. Football now, and both league clubs

:05:30.:05:33.

are in action tomorrow with the pressure on Scunthorpe United to

:05:33.:05:35.

beat Chesterfield at the bottom of League One. In the Championship,

:05:35.:05:40.

Hull City are away to Burnley. Two teams bidding to get back in

:05:40.:05:44.

the Premier League. Hull City want their name back up there, despite

:05:44.:05:48.

losing at Middlesborough on Boxing Day. The Tigers are away to Burnley

:05:48.:05:53.

tomorrow to consolidate their play off place status. And they'll hope

:05:53.:05:57.

this time their game plan won't be ruined by a late strike from

:05:57.:06:06.

distance. Sometimes you get games like that but in the second half of

:06:06.:06:12.

the season you were in with a shout and you need to start playing the

:06:12.:06:18.

football we know we can play. Beaten 3-1 by Bury in their last

:06:18.:06:21.

game, Scunthorpe United host bottom of League One side Chesterfield.

:06:21.:06:24.

The Iron will hope to improve defensively, and ease their way to

:06:24.:06:31.

safety in a genuine six pointer for the two teams. Both teams are

:06:31.:06:38.

saying we should be higher up in the league. Unfortunately we are

:06:38.:06:42.

where we are and we certainly have to do more to get up the league and

:06:42.:06:46.

we will be looking forward to doing that on Saturday. But the biggest

:06:46.:06:49.

game of the weekend is arguably on Sunday in the Conference. Two

:06:49.:06:52.

Grimsby goals put Lincoln in their place on Boxing Day. But the return

:06:52.:06:55.

derby fixture gives the Imps an immediate chance of revenge. This

:06:55.:07:00.

time though Grimsby also have home time though Grimsby also have home

:07:00.:07:04.

advantage. Let's take a look at the weekend weather. What a miserable

:07:04.:07:11.

and to the working week. It looks like New year's Eve will be very

:07:11.:07:16.

mild. It is wet right now. The outbreaks of rain and drizzle will

:07:16.:07:22.

move out to the North Sea. Temperatures will stay around what

:07:22.:07:31.

they are now, for her or five Celsius. -- four or five Celsius.

:07:31.:07:35.

Tomorrow afternoon it should become dry and a little bit more bright.

:07:35.:07:41.

Look at these temperatures. You will get double figures wherever

:07:41.:07:50.
