For Good evening. Warnings of a pay cut for public sector workers as

:00:11.:00:18.

part of one new North-South divide. Everyone in that public sector has

:00:18.:00:25.

a pay cut and that is going to be devastating. The stalemate over

:00:25.:00:35.
:00:35.:00:35.

cutting the Humber Bridge toll claims the maths don't add up.

:00:35.:00:40.

How a former workers at the docks are about to star in a television

:00:40.:00:44.

documentary. The seal was no sense of direction

:00:44.:00:54.
:00:54.:01:04.

washers upon the East Coast. That all-important weather forecast.

:01:04.:01:09.

there are claims that teachers, health workers could see their pay

:01:09.:01:15.

cut under government plans. Minister believes salaries should

:01:15.:01:20.

be closely linked to wages and the private sector. That has prompted

:01:20.:01:24.

fears workers will find themselves on the wrong side of a North-South

:01:24.:01:31.

divide. The most public sector workers are subject to the same

:01:31.:01:37.

rates of pay weather in the north or south. That could come to an end.

:01:37.:01:41.

The Chancellor announced that the Government is looking at salaries

:01:41.:01:47.

being negotiated at will local rather than national level. We are

:01:47.:01:53.

trying to make sure that p is clear and right for the local economy.

:01:53.:02:01.

This was done by the last Labour government. It is a move will

:02:01.:02:07.

caused by teachers like this woman. She works in a primary-school.

:02:07.:02:16.

He must be either put in a pay freeze on people in the periods or

:02:16.:02:26.

giving them a pay cut. Critics of national pay bargaining IQ public

:02:26.:02:30.

sector salaries should reflect the cost of living in a place in the

:02:30.:02:40.
:02:40.:02:49.

country. The average house price here is just over 93,000. The

:02:49.:02:56.

unions are not convinced. We're convinced teachers are doing the

:02:56.:03:01.

same job. It is important they are motivated and they feel they can

:03:01.:03:08.

move to different parts of the community -- country. Following

:03:08.:03:14.

strikes over pensions, the scrapping of national pay

:03:14.:03:17.

bargaining can spark round to two and a fight between the unions and

:03:17.:03:24.

the Government. I asked Kevin Austerberry from the

:03:25.:03:34.

Royal College of Nursing why they were against the government's idea

:03:34.:03:38.

the suggestion that local pay should be introduced in the NHS

:03:38.:03:43.

came as no surprise. It is misguided. A nurse and the North

:03:43.:03:48.

does not have the same living expenses as one and the size.

:03:48.:03:55.

you look at what might lie behind us, it is clear the intention would

:03:55.:04:02.

be to reduce the costs of staff in the NHS. We tried is back in the

:04:02.:04:07.

1990s and it pushes costs up. you are a nurse and you want a

:04:07.:04:17.
:04:17.:04:18.

house, some places are very expensive. We recognise costs

:04:18.:04:26.

Theory from one part of the country to another. Some p have

:04:26.:04:31.

enhancements. If you did an interview on our programme in

:04:31.:04:35.

London, you have say nurses should earn more because it is expensive

:04:36.:04:45.

to live there. We must insure the best interests of patients is at

:04:45.:04:52.

the forefront. It is uncomfortable that introducing local pay if it is

:04:52.:04:57.

intending to drive pay rates down is not acceptable at a time when

:04:57.:05:07.
:05:07.:05:10.

health care staff are under pressure. George Osborne says it is

:05:10.:05:18.

about setting paid which is fair and right for the local economy.

:05:18.:05:23.

if you introduce anomalies, think about what that means for

:05:23.:05:30.

recruitment. If one hospital pays specialist nurses at one level and

:05:30.:05:34.

the one down the road gets paid more, there will be a temptation

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:48.

for staff to move. That will secure the system. You have heard this

:05:48.:05:53.

story. Should periods for public sector jobs be left to local

:05:54.:06:03.
:06:04.:06:21.

economy? Should a nurse in the This is a subject that will be

:06:21.:06:30.

debated starting this weekend, the Sunday Politics from 12 noon.

:06:30.:06:40.
:06:40.:06:41.

In a moment, Britain's greatest living in just a -- artist.

:06:41.:06:46.

The government's deal with councils on the Bank of the Humber to half

:06:46.:06:52.

bridge tolls may not work, that is a warning from some backing the

:06:52.:07:01.

change. The Chancellor said he wanted a �1.50 charge within months.

:07:01.:07:11.
:07:11.:07:11.

There is little sign of progress. Has something gone wrong? In the

:07:11.:07:15.

cold light of the new year, some serious questions are being asked

:07:16.:07:25.

about the nitty-gritty of the deal. It is whether it can be made to

:07:25.:07:28.

work in the long term as a sustainable solution for the

:07:28.:07:36.

economy. The Government has written off half the debt. It wants the

:07:36.:07:40.

councils making up the bought to come up with a financial plan to

:07:40.:07:47.

manage their trunk. When George Osborne visited the bridge, he was

:07:47.:07:51.

confident we councils would get back to him with a workable plan to

:07:51.:07:57.

deal with their half of the debt. The Theory says that cutting the

:07:57.:08:01.

bridge tolls and half, there will be a massive increase in the volume

:08:01.:08:11.
:08:11.:08:12.

using the bridge. The problem is that this is just a theory. No one

:08:12.:08:19.

knows whether it will work. This man as a campaigner on to bridge

:08:19.:08:22.

debt but does not believe there will be a big enough traffic

:08:22.:08:29.

increase. On basic maths, you cannot afford to pay �184 million

:08:29.:08:39.

debt. There are other problems. It needs underwriting. It is suggested

:08:39.:08:48.

the council's divide this. Up I want to make sure North East

:08:48.:08:53.

Lincolnshire Council has a fair deal. I do not see why we should

:08:53.:09:03.
:09:03.:09:04.

subsidise other parts of the area. We have seen a few shenanigans.

:09:04.:09:10.

There was another fine Humber sunset. Behind the scenes, the

:09:10.:09:15.

negotiations to get the bridge deal to work will not be as pretty.

:09:15.:09:25.
:09:25.:09:29.

Those are the concerns. Will those tolls behalf by 1st April? People

:09:29.:09:39.

say there is little danger of the deal being withdrawn. It is likely

:09:39.:09:45.

that tolls will be half and the coming months. The bigger question

:09:45.:09:50.

about how to make this reduction work long term will still be there?

:09:50.:09:59.

The row about who will pay for it is also going to get deeper. Three

:09:59.:10:04.

people were taken to hospital after a crash that close to Major wrote

:10:04.:10:12.

in north Lincolnshire. Two cars were involved on the A180. One man

:10:12.:10:17.

was airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary. Two others were taken to

:10:17.:10:22.

hospital. A jury has started to consider its

:10:22.:10:29.

verdict on the trial of five men of murdering Adam Vincent. His family

:10:29.:10:38.

was at court today. His body parts were found in the water.

:10:38.:10:43.

A shop and Lincoln which sold fake bottles of vodka a containing

:10:43.:10:49.

cleaning fluid has had its Algol licence revoked. Mouldy tobacco was

:10:49.:10:54.

also found during a raid by trading standards on Finest Foods. Other

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:07.

shops have lost their licences. Still ahead, workers starring in

:11:07.:11:13.

:12:19.:12:27.

Other than that, it is unsettled weekend. There is hardly a cloud in

the sky. There has been cloud on the coastline but it should melt

morning at 830. A frosty start and watch out for four Apache fog.

:13:09.:13:17.

Temperatures will struggle. A variable breeze will come up from

:13:17.:13:24.

the south-east. Where the fog lingers through the evening, it

could be as low as three Celsius. You will be repaid next week!

As David Hockney prepares to open his latest exhibition about the

:14:12.:14:16.

Yorkshire Wolds, campaigners have been fighting for years to make it

:14:17.:14:19.

an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which would limit what

:14:19.:14:23.

could be built there. They are hoping the new focus on the walls

:14:23.:14:28.

will strengthen their campaign. -- focus on the Yorkshire Wolds.

:14:29.:14:34.

At times, the views of breathtaking, but for many, the Yorkshire Wolds

:14:34.:14:39.

are still a hidden gem. But this man knows them well and once again,

:14:39.:14:43.

David Hockney has found inspiration from the peaceful landscape. There

:14:44.:14:49.

was a very, very good subject here. The landscape itself, which I felt

:14:49.:14:55.

quite strongly attached to. If you are my age and you find a subject

:14:55.:15:00.

that is exciting, stick with it. For this collection, he used his

:15:00.:15:05.

iPad to capture the untouched beauty of the Yorkshire Wolds and

:15:05.:15:09.

it is a characteristic many want to protect. I think it is absolutely

:15:09.:15:15.

stunning up here. When you get on the top you get the panoramic views.

:15:15.:15:22.

Steve Hey is hoping in -- hoping Hockney's latest exhibition will

:15:22.:15:29.

draw focus to this area. Hopefully it will help protect against the

:15:29.:15:35.

industrialisation of the landscape. This will open up the doors to

:15:35.:15:39.

developers. Total development of the countryside. These beautiful

:15:39.:15:43.

areas will be gone forever. others, the wildlife that thrives

:15:43.:15:50.

here is a source of inspiration which needs protection. I love the

:15:50.:15:54.

wildlife in the Yorkshire Wolds but the key to them is the grassland

:15:54.:16:01.

valleys, a fall of wild flowers and orchids. At the moment I can hear a

:16:01.:16:05.

thrush singing. That is one of the first birds of the years singing.

:16:05.:16:15.

New York is difficult, London I find difficult, so I love the quiet

:16:15.:16:21.

of East Yorkshire. On a day like today, it is easy to see why David

:16:21.:16:24.

Hockney finds the Yorkshire Wolds are inspirational, and campaigners

:16:24.:16:29.

hope that by making this an area of outstanding natural beauty, they

:16:29.:16:34.

can protect these views for the future.

:16:34.:16:39.

Some fantastic pictures there of the Yorkshire Wolds. That David

:16:39.:16:46.

Hockney exhibition is about to open. I have been talking to Gary Verity

:16:46.:16:52.

from CPP -- Welcome to Yorkshire about the impact of David Hockney's

:16:52.:16:56.

work on the countryside here. Yorkshire Wolds are the hidden gem

:16:56.:17:00.

of Yorkshire. What the exhibition will do is draw attention to the

:17:00.:17:06.

great things that visitors can see when they come and visit art great

:17:06.:17:09.

county and I think East Yorkshire stands to benefit hugely from the

:17:09.:17:13.

massive profile of the Hochmann exhibition. What is the Hockney

:17:13.:17:18.

trail all about? It will give sides across East Yorkshire where people

:17:18.:17:22.

can see the great man himself has painted his pictures, and see what

:17:22.:17:26.

they look like in real life. It is about giving the visitor the

:17:27.:17:34.

greater experience and the report on country while the other night

:17:34.:17:37.

where Hockney was fantastic, the way he came across, explaining in

:17:37.:17:42.

great detail why he had chosen the sites that he had done, and the

:17:42.:17:46.

benefit to the visitor. Yorkshire Wolds have seen a growing

:17:46.:17:50.

number of wind farm applications. How important is it for the area to

:17:50.:17:54.

be recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Ceri can

:17:54.:17:59.

be protected? I do not know that the Net -- necessarily needs to be

:17:59.:18:02.

recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but I

:18:02.:18:08.

would say that East Yorkshire are already an Area of Outstanding

:18:08.:18:10.

Natural Beauty and it is important that any development that happens

:18:10.:18:18.

there needs to be sympathetic. you think this will actually bring

:18:18.:18:21.

people into East Yorkshire who have never been before, to come to the

:18:21.:18:27.

trail? Undoubtedly. Our experience over the last three years has been

:18:27.:18:30.

that where we have done thing similar to this there has been a

:18:30.:18:34.

massive upsurge in visitor numbers and I am sure East Yorkshire will

:18:34.:18:40.

benefit from that over the months ahead. Thank you.

:18:40.:18:43.

Let's hope that we protect those areas in the future.

:18:43.:18:47.

For Hull Marina is closed for six weeks because of maintenance work.

:18:47.:18:54.

Boats cannot get in or out while repairs to the gates' seal is

:18:54.:18:58.

repaired. A statute in honour of scumbled

:18:58.:19:01.

steelworkers has been proposed for the town centre. This is a scale

:19:01.:19:05.

model. The finished sculpture would be 17ft tall and made from

:19:05.:19:10.

Scunthorpe steel. The group behind the idea is trying to raise �40,000

:19:10.:19:17.

and hopes the statue could be in place by October. We are working on

:19:17.:19:19.

this as a project to give some recognition to the steel workers

:19:19.:19:29.
:19:29.:19:34.

and their families. Let's hope that Scunthorpe gets the statue.

:19:34.:19:39.

Hull City's new manager, Nick Barmby, hopes he has the signed to

:19:39.:19:44.

make a serious challenge for promotion. The Tigers are in a

:19:44.:19:47.

Championship play-off position as they take on Peterborough United.

:19:47.:19:51.

They may have lost their last league game to this goal but

:19:51.:19:55.

Saturday's Cup victory over Ipswich Town has given Hull's City manager

:19:55.:19:59.

Nick Barmby the belief that his side Arab force to be reckoned with.

:19:59.:20:03.

These players have as good a chance as any other team, as long as they

:20:03.:20:08.

keep believing what they are to link, they remain positive, you are

:20:08.:20:13.

going to set -- get setbacks but it is how you handle them. So far they

:20:13.:20:17.

have done that well. I want to get better and better. I want to prove

:20:17.:20:25.

to a lot of people what I can do. So if I have the chance now, I want

:20:25.:20:29.

to grab it with two hands. Scunthorpe United return to action

:20:29.:20:38.

at Colchester United, coming after the splendid win at the weekend. In

:20:38.:20:48.
:20:48.:20:54.

not make it his FA Trophy date with The real-life stories of the people

:20:54.:20:57.

who worked on the docks at the Humber port will be shown in a

:20:57.:21:02.

documentary this weekend. It will be broadcast exclusively here on

:21:02.:21:05.

BBC One in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The programme, called

:21:05.:21:09.

How the Humber Changed our World, involves lots of local people and

:21:09.:21:17.

tells the story of the history of the docks through their eyes.

:21:17.:21:25.

You was either a strong woman or you wasn't. It made you strong.

:21:25.:21:28.

was first shown in cinemas in Hull, Goole and Grimsby, and some in the

:21:28.:21:32.

audience, like Jim Williams, had taken part in the film, to share

:21:32.:21:38.

their own personal memories. There is three weeks' money. You have two

:21:38.:21:45.

days. I knew so many of those

:21:45.:21:52.

personalities that were filmed. They all put it across as it was,

:21:52.:21:56.

to give our children and grandchildren memories of the

:21:56.:22:00.

heritage of they grew up with. Brylcreem in my hair, three-day

:22:00.:22:04.

millionaire... The film delves into the working life of the Humber

:22:04.:22:08.

ports, through the good time when fishermen when it meant freedom

:22:08.:22:12.

millionaires, to the troubled cod wars and the turbulent days of the

:22:12.:22:16.

dock strikes. First-hand accounts, family photographs and amateur

:22:16.:22:21.

video were all vital. These are the stories that people would hand down

:22:21.:22:25.

to their sons, daughters and grandchildren. People generally

:22:25.:22:28.

were very candid in the stories they were prepared to tell us. If

:22:28.:22:32.

you look at the dock workers, it put their militancy in context

:22:32.:22:36.

because they told us about how bad conditions were when they first

:22:36.:22:42.

started. What we often get is the official sanitised version, the

:22:42.:22:46.

story about the great and the good, and this one actually tells us the

:22:46.:22:50.

story of working people. If you do not recall that now, it is gone

:22:50.:22:55.

forever. There was so much interest in the film last summer that

:22:55.:22:58.

tickets were oversubscribed and an extra screening had to be put on

:22:58.:23:02.

but now many more people will get to see it as it transfers to

:23:02.:23:07.

television. Jim hopes it will help more people appreciate the reality

:23:07.:23:16.

of life on the docks. Looking forward to seeing that one.

:23:16.:23:22.

That is this Sunday at 3:05pm here on BBC One. On BBC Radio Humberside

:23:22.:23:26.

from 9am on Monday, there will be a chance for you to talk about the

:23:26.:23:36.
:23:36.:23:37.

She is a seal with a poor sense of direction, more than 2000 miles

:23:37.:23:41.

from home, and less than a year old. Eve was found on a Lincolnshire

:23:41.:23:45.

beach. Staff at Natureland in Skegness are using tracking

:23:45.:23:51.

technology to keep an eye on her. With her special track of it did,

:23:51.:23:57.

this breed of hooded seal is rarely seen around here. This one is badly

:23:57.:24:03.

lost and in desperate need of good directions. They come from regions

:24:03.:24:07.

like Ice land in the East, right across to Newfoundland and Canada

:24:07.:24:11.

in the West. So she is one and truly lost. This particular seal is

:24:11.:24:15.

thought to have been born in Icelandic waters. Just ten months

:24:15.:24:20.

old, weak and confused, she has now been rescued from the beach here in

:24:20.:24:24.

Lincolnshire. Normally by this age they are really fat. She was weak

:24:24.:24:28.

and underweight for so we thought we would bring her back. That was

:24:28.:24:33.

when we noticed the transmitter on top of her head as well. Staff have

:24:33.:24:36.

named their new edition Eve and have quickly discovered her poor

:24:36.:24:40.

sense of direction has already been recorded by colleagues in Europe.

:24:40.:24:44.

She was first discovered of the German coast last summer and it was

:24:44.:24:49.

here when the tracking device was fitted. She was then traced heading

:24:49.:24:53.

north back home to Iceland but near Scotland things again went wrong.

:24:53.:24:58.

She turned around and was found a few weeks later on a beach at

:24:58.:25:02.

Chapel St Leonards. To now guarantee has said return home, the

:25:02.:25:05.

best plan of action is transportation. That means an

:25:05.:25:09.

expensive flight and for that to happen, financial backing will be

:25:09.:25:14.

needed. If it did come to that, we would probably be looking for

:25:14.:25:17.

sponsors to help us do that but that is in a few months' time, when

:25:17.:25:23.

she has been putting on weight. Whatever happens, he's still needs

:25:23.:25:30.

to gain a further 30kg in weight. Wherever she goes, she will still

:25:30.:25:34.

be fitted with the special Tracker, enabling the staff here to monitor

:25:34.:25:38.

her progress and make sure that this time she is heading in the

:25:38.:25:43.

right direction. It's the cost of transporting her back home would be

:25:43.:25:47.

thousands of pounds but with a face like this, there could be shared

:25:47.:25:51.

brought financial offers over the coming weeks. -- several financial

:25:51.:25:55.

offers. If you have a story you think we

:25:55.:26:01.

should know about, senders and Emap. A recap of the main headlines. The

:26:01.:26:03.

Government says it will press ahead with controversial child benefit

:26:03.:26:08.
