Welcome to Look North. The headlines... Warnings for lorry-

:00:12.:00:17.

drivers and garages as fuel theft rises across the area. It has gone

:00:17.:00:23.

up nationally about 40 % in the past two or three years. Still to

:00:23.:00:27.

be identified. The body of a woman found on the Queen's Sandringham

estate on New Year's Day. Opened again in Lincoln. The new look of

Siemens is described as a vote of confidence. Grantham's reaction to

:00:39.:00:45.

the town's most famous daughter. As the government promises a satnav

:00:45.:00:50.

summit we find out where they are going wrong in the area. I am back

:01:00.:01:05.

in 15 minutes with your detailed Good evening. It is a crime which

:01:05.:01:09.

is increasing in the area and a lorry drivers and garages are being

:01:09.:01:14.

warned to be on their guard against the risk of fuel theft. Almost 2000

:01:14.:01:18.

cases were reported to Humberside and Lincolnshire police last year,

:01:18.:01:24.

including a recent series of more than he doesn't thefts in one week.

:01:24.:01:30.

That was in North Lincolnshire alone. -- 12 thefts. High petrol

:01:30.:01:34.

prices are putting a strain on finances but it appears some people

:01:34.:01:39.

are getting round them up by targeting garages like this one and

:01:39.:01:47.

stealing deal instead. Declined on top of the tank and got the lid

:01:47.:01:52.

open and got into the tank and pumped the fuel out into the back

:01:52.:01:56.

of a down. That is how they got away with 4,000 litres in about 45

:01:56.:02:02.

minutes. David Craven Jones runs 12 carriages in the how and has seen a

:02:02.:02:09.

big increase in the crime in the past 18 years. -- I'll. It has gone

:02:09.:02:14.

up by 40 % in the past three years. They are getting cheeky, how they

:02:14.:02:21.

do it. They are taking petrol tankers. They take a delivery truck.

:02:21.:02:25.

Instead of delivering the fuel, they are pumping it out of the

:02:25.:02:29.

truck. They are dressed in a uniform and they look like delivery

:02:29.:02:36.

drivers. That is what has happened. It is not just being stolen from

:02:36.:02:43.

garages. Lorries and tankers are major targets. In 2011, more than

:02:43.:02:47.

1,500 cases were reported and in some cases, more than 1000 litres

:02:47.:02:52.

were stolen. The authorities say there is a link between rising

:02:52.:02:58.

prices and rising crime. We have got a 17 % increase in the fuel

:02:58.:03:03.

theft. That does not include petrol stations, currently almost 40 % in

:03:03.:03:08.

Lincolnshire. It is along with the national average, increasing. That

:03:09.:03:13.

is down to the increase in prices and people simply not afford in the

:03:13.:03:22.

fuel and stealing it. -- affording. Recently there were more than one

:03:22.:03:26.

dozen facts in one week and this man is taking precautions. --

:03:27.:03:36.
:03:37.:03:37.

deaths. -- cases of theft. Here, you cannot get any fuel out.

:03:37.:03:41.

Technology is being brought in to try and beat the criminals but

:03:41.:03:50.

while prices remain high, this is I asked Malcolm Bingham from the

:03:50.:03:53.

Freight Transport Association about why East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:03:53.:04:02.

is being targeted by fuel fact criminals. The cost of fuel has

:04:02.:04:08.

made it more attractive for organised criminals To target is

:04:08.:04:16.

that type of commodity. In the past we have seen a lot of crime where

:04:16.:04:21.

things have been taken but more and more companies are aware of that

:04:21.:04:27.

and have taken preventative measures. But when vehicles are

:04:27.:04:31.

parked, sometimes in isolated places, they become more of a

:04:31.:04:36.

target. And our drivers and colleagues doing all that they can

:04:36.:04:45.

to protect fuel all leading them wide open? We have got a couple of

:04:45.:04:49.

problem areas. One of the issues we are concerned about is the lack of

:04:49.:04:55.

proper Secure Parking. We have had a history of a lack of provision

:04:55.:05:01.

for that sort of facility. Sometimes when operators try to set

:05:01.:05:06.

up that kind of facility in the area, they get local resistance

:05:06.:05:12.

because it is looked as not being the sort of business opportunity

:05:12.:05:18.

that should be put in certain areas. Secure Parking is a major issue.

:05:18.:05:28.

And presumably, that bumps up the bill even more? We have got an

:05:28.:05:36.

issue around cost. But what we are asking for is a network of proper

:05:36.:05:40.

and affordable parking across the country, where that sort of

:05:40.:05:44.

provision is made and drivers can rest at night understanding that

:05:44.:05:51.

they are secured. We have got a good facility in Yorkshire and the

:05:51.:05:55.

Humber area but people start to wonder if it is the right sort of

:05:55.:06:00.

provision. Not all lorry parks are stickier and can become targets it

:06:01.:06:05.

people realise the vehicles are there with large amounts of fuel. -

:06:05.:06:11.

- stickier. It appears the criminals are one step ahead.

:06:11.:06:18.

industry is always trying to combat that effect. Because of the

:06:18.:06:23.

increased value of fuel, it has moved towards taking this problem

:06:23.:06:31.

forward. Good to talk to you. Malcolm Bingham from the Freight

:06:31.:06:36.

Transport Association. What can be done to combat this problem? Have

:06:36.:06:43.

you been affected by this? Let us you been affected by this? Let us

:06:43.:06:53.
:06:53.:07:00.

We will read some of your contributions later. Coming up, it

is a centuries old tradition. Four pubs battle it out for the Haxey

Hood. Norfolk police have still not been able to identify the body of a

:07:10.:07:14.

woman found on the Sandringham estate at the weekend.

:07:14.:07:18.

Investigations began after a human remains were discovered at Anmer on

:07:18.:07:24.

New year's Day. Tests are taking place in the next 48 hours. When

:07:24.:07:28.

police arranged at today's conference they had hoped to

:07:28.:07:32.

provide positive information on the beer that -- murder victim will

:07:53.:07:58.

a full profile. Detailed searches where a Walker discovered the

:07:58.:08:04.

remains have continued. And entomologist has helped from the

:08:04.:08:09.

National retreat -- History Museum. They are trying to determine when

:08:09.:08:15.

the body died. It was a white female between the age of 15-23.

:08:47.:08:51.

know her name and how she died but while the delay is frustrating,

:08:51.:08:58.

police say they are making progress. Tests are being carried out on the

:08:58.:09:05.

body in a mortuary to confirm if it is Christopher Alder. It was

:09:05.:09:08.

discovered in the morgue last November. It was discovered 11

:09:08.:09:12.

years after his funeral. It is thought a woman was buried in his

:09:12.:09:17.

place. The family has asked Professor Jack Crane, state

:09:17.:09:20.

pathologist in Northern Ireland to lead the examination. More details

:09:31.:09:35.

Stephen's Square were told it would close on Sunday after new owners

:09:35.:09:42.

did not agree occupancy terms with the management. A vote of

:09:42.:09:46.

confidence is how the investment is being described involving Siemens.

:09:46.:09:51.

It is a new factory in the city. They employed more than 5,000

:09:51.:09:57.

people to make gas turbines. As we report, it appears it is a rare

:09:57.:10:03.

manufacturing success in tough economic times. Gas turbines are

:10:03.:10:08.

used in power generation and to pump oil through pipes. The good

:10:08.:10:13.

news is that the order book for these machines is looking healthy.

:10:13.:10:20.

I have great pleasure in officially opening this facility. At the

:10:20.:10:23.

opening of the return Bicester factory, we have got an air of

:10:23.:10:31.

confidence. -- the factory. It is the most we have recruited in a

:10:31.:10:35.

long time. We are trying to make sure that we have got not just the

:10:35.:10:40.

technology, but the people. Manufacturing success stories are

:10:40.:10:45.

rare at the moment but this is among them. This investment marks a

:10:45.:10:48.

vote of confidence in this workforce and the wider community

:10:48.:10:56.

in Lincoln. Siemens has invested in a new engineering school at Lincoln

:10:56.:11:00.

University and has signed up to a multi-million pound research

:11:00.:11:06.

facility at the Business Park. you get a company of such fame and

:11:06.:11:10.

important putting resources in, that is a sign that Lincoln is a

:11:10.:11:14.

place of the future. They have got the skills and the young people and

:11:15.:11:21.

the experienced workforce to resource this company. And the

:11:21.:11:29.

college is reaping the benefit of a booming engineering sector. We have

:11:29.:11:33.

seen an increase in recruitment and investment. Particularly true

:11:33.:11:41.

Siemens but our organisations as well. Business is booming. The

:11:41.:11:45.

building has just been built and a had obviously spent a lot of money

:11:45.:11:50.

it. I think a company as big as Siemens is a great place to build a

:11:50.:11:55.

career. They have got more than one century of skilled engineering

:11:55.:12:04.

tradition. This is likely to insure Parents in Grimsby have been

protesting against plans for a health centre for vulnerable people

wrong location for the centre. think it is disgusting. It is not

:12:35.:12:38.

fair. Children, parents, we think it is disgusting and it is not

:12:38.:12:43.

right. I did it is totally outrageous. They should not be

:12:43.:12:49.

doing anything like this where we have got children. We have got a

:12:49.:12:55.

school and a playground and a nursery and old people nearby.

:12:55.:12:59.

understand their concerns. We are moving closer to the people and

:12:59.:13:04.

working with them. We have got more than 1,000 people registered and

:13:04.:13:09.

600 live in the East Marsh. Some of them are going to the school and

:13:09.:13:13.

the local children's centre. A lot of them are in that area already

:13:13.:13:19.

and we are actually going to them. We would like you to comment about

told you about the police community support officer who will not face

charges after slapping a teenage boy in Grimsby. Humberside police

:13:40.:13:44.

say that the officer has been disciplined and that the slap was

:13:44.:13:48.

part of a joke. There was issued response on this story after the

:15:31.:15:37.

shaping up too badly. It will be quite breezy, but on the whole it

:15:37.:15:40.

will be dry and we will see some sunshine breaking through the

:15:40.:15:46.

clouds at times. It has been a fabulous day today. Clouds have

:15:46.:15:49.

moved in through the afternoon as they could be the odd spot of rain

:15:49.:15:56.

or drizzle in places. You will notice the wind picking up. It will

not be as windy as the other night, but you will notice the wind and

:16:01.:16:06.

nonetheless. A patchy rain will clear throughout the night. The

lowest temperatures will be around five Celsius. The sun will rise in

of light showers in the West. There will be some sunshine and pleasant

contest held between the villages of Haxey and Woodside as they

:17:29.:17:35.

attempt to wrestle a leather want to one of four local pubs. Alcohol

:17:35.:17:41.

is key to the preparations. It is one of the few games away

:17:42.:17:46.

getting really drunk is practically a prerequisite. Fortunately for the

:17:46.:17:51.

:17:51.:17:59.

There are four involved. Crowds had to Haxey each year to take part in

:17:59.:18:04.

Hull City have a break from the League this weekend as they take on

:19:15.:19:20.

Ipswich Town at home at. They will hope to make it through to the 4th

:19:20.:19:24.

round of the FA Cup. Caretaker- manager Nick Barmby looks set to

:19:24.:19:29.

take the job on a permanent basis. Last week's home defeat to Derby

:19:29.:19:34.

was the Tigers third in a row over the festive period. Nick Barmby

:19:34.:19:39.

will be hoping for a victory as he is due to be installed as city's

full-time boss. Hopefully everything will be sorted out over

the weekend, if not Monday. It will definitely be signed over the next

few days. Everything is positive. Elsewhere this weekend, after

completing the double over Lincoln City, Ipswich Town are facing

Of course, enjoy your football this weekend.

:20:17.:20:20.

Residents of Margaret Thatcher's home town of Grantham are enjoying

:20:20.:20:26.

their chance to see the film of her life. The Iron Lady stars Hollywood

:20:26.:20:34.

legend, Meryl Streep, as the former prime minister. Was there much

:20:34.:20:39.

eager anticipation in the town? there certainly has been plenty of

:20:39.:20:45.

excitement. The first showing of this film is already under way. As

:20:45.:20:48.

you can tell by all of the decorations of the cinema, there is

:20:48.:20:52.

a new level of excitement about the first night of a film here in

:20:52.:21:02.
:21:02.:21:06.

Where there is discord, may we bring harmony.

:21:06.:21:09.

Grantham's most famous daughter on the silver screen. The film is

:21:09.:21:17.

causing a stir in the Thatcher's causing a stir in the Thatcher's

:21:17.:21:22.

home town. People in Grantham either love her or hate her. People

:21:22.:21:29.

want to see how Meryl Streep performs in the film. As final

:21:29.:21:35.

preparations were made for the film's first showing, cinema-goers

:21:35.:21:39.

couldn't wait to see how Thatcher is portrayed. It is a very good

:21:39.:21:47.

cast. I know so much about it, I wanted to see it. Everyone has

:21:47.:21:52.

heard of her and seen her and seen her in action. In Grantham itself,

:21:52.:21:57.

the film is drawing in visitors. This was her father's shops and

:21:57.:22:02.

where she was born and brought up. The media are coming from far

:22:02.:22:07.

afield to see this town. We have had French television and radio and

:22:07.:22:15.

American radio. There is a great deal of curiosity and interest.

:22:15.:22:18.

Right Honourable Gentleman knows very well that we had no choice but

:22:18.:22:23.

to close the school. The Iron Lady charts Margaret

:22:23.:22:28.

Thatcher's rise to power. But in her childhood her classmates had no

:22:28.:22:33.

idea that she would be portrayed by a Hollywood star. She was very good

:22:33.:22:37.

in the class and with her behaviour, but I would not have said that as a

:22:37.:22:47.

small girl we would expect to see what she did in the future. This is

:22:47.:22:50.

what she achieved, becoming Britain's first female prime

:22:50.:22:57.

minister. But some are still angry today. In former mining towns like

:22:57.:23:01.

Chesterfield there has been angry protest about the film's release.

:23:01.:23:06.

But that has not stopped dozens flocking to see The Iron Lady on

:23:06.:23:16.
:23:16.:23:16.

the big screen. Is it for tonight? They are a few

:23:16.:23:21.

dozen people down in the stalls at the moment, but for the next

:23:21.:23:25.

showing at 8:20pm it is almost sold out. The film coming from this

:23:25.:23:30.

projection room here also has another Lincolnshire link. Jim

:23:30.:23:34.

Broadbent, who was born on the other side of the county, is

:23:34.:23:39.

playing the part of a Denis Thatcher. One person we know who

:23:39.:23:43.

will not be in the audience in Grantham tonight, is Margaret

:23:43.:23:47.

Thatcher herself. The director of the film has told the BBC that she

:23:47.:23:56.

turned down an offer to see the film for herself.

:23:56.:24:03.

Thank you. Now, vehicles getting stuck, heavy goods vehicles hitting

:24:03.:24:07.

bridges and also locals getting frustrated all because of satellite

:24:07.:24:13.

navigation systems. The government is trying to tackle this problem.

:24:13.:24:17.

They want to reassure the information we have is bang up-to-

:24:17.:24:27.
:24:27.:24:37.

Becoming too reliant on technology can soon it lead to the need for

:24:37.:24:43.

help. Especially when it comes to your sat nav. Say you're in

:24:43.:24:47.

Scunthorpe and fancy a day at the races, put the shortest route in

:24:47.:24:54.

your sat nav and it will take cue the long way around. The way the

:24:54.:25:01.

road starts to deteriorate is giving me my first clue. When you

:25:01.:25:05.

get to the bridge, you'll need a pretty thin vehicle with wheels

:25:05.:25:12.

like a tractor for the other side. On a map you will find this road to

:25:12.:25:17.

be either not marked at all, or of minimal quality. However sat nav

:25:17.:25:25.

are quite happy to tell you it is fine. You need to use a horse to

:25:26.:25:30.

get over that bridge. Unless you are local he would not know that.

:25:30.:25:40.

People using a sat nav will often get down here. You can also find

:25:40.:25:50.

yourself being taken through private land. It is also fine

:25:50.:25:55.

according to sat nav to take your car every tiny footbridge. And
