Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

And the detailed five-day forecast There has been another sharp rise

:00:53.:00:56.

in unemployment across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Figures

:00:56.:00:58.

released today show that between September and November unemployment

:00:58.:01:02.

in the Yorkshire and Humber region went up by 11,000 with 270,000 out

of work. In the East Midlands it rose by 7,000 to 190,000. It has

:01:13.:01:16.

also been revealed that the number of unemployed people over 50 has

:01:42.:01:47.

you were 15, it makes you feel like a second-class citizen. Your self-

esteem does. The recession has meant that thousands of people like

look for work elsewhere. They number of over-fifties in Yorkshire

for more than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 22,000 by the end of last

year. The government says it of its work programme is funding a network

:02:20.:02:26.

of training providers to help mature jobseeker's find employment.

:02:26.:02:31.

Is there hope for. Matured jobseeker's?

:02:31.:02:36.

Absolutely. We have a number of ladies who have brought up children

firm in North Lincolnshire. Keep trying. Keep knocking on doors.

:02:58.:03:07.

There are jobs are there if you look. On the streets of

:03:07.:03:11.

Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire, there is still a distinct lack of

:03:11.:03:19.

good news on the jobs front. Tim Iredale, Scunthorpe.

:03:19.:03:23.

A today I spoke to the Employment Minister about the particular issue

:03:23.:03:32.

of unemployment among the over fifties in our part of the world.

:03:32.:03:37.

My message to them is that they are one of our biggest priorities in

:03:37.:03:44.

the labour market. Those under 24 and over 50 often struggle to get

:03:44.:03:47.

into employment. There are two parts to what we are doing for that

:03:48.:03:52.

particular group. The first is through the we launch of the work

:03:52.:03:57.

programme last summer. We are delivering more personalised and

:03:57.:04:01.

tailored support from organisations who are paid on a payment by

:04:01.:04:05.

results basis and only paid when they are successful in getting

:04:05.:04:10.

someone in to work and helping them to stay there. They are succeeding

:04:10.:04:14.

where they have built close ties to employers. I think that provides a

:04:15.:04:22.

better option for those people there may have had in the past.

:04:22.:04:27.

Imparts a poll, over 30 people are facing chasing every vacancy. Can

:04:27.:04:33.

you understand why those people are sceptical?

:04:33.:04:39.

I understand it can be very dispiriting to be unemployed. At

:04:39.:04:43.

one particular moment in time those figures may be true but of the

:04:43.:04:49.

vacancies people apply for change every week. JobCentre plus offices

:04:49.:04:55.

take in 80,000 vacancies a week. There is a constant churn of jobs.

:04:55.:05:00.

The people chasing this week's vacancy may be chasing a different

:05:00.:05:04.

vacancy next week. It is difficult and challenging but we are

:05:04.:05:09.

providing better support. Through the new Enterprise Allowance, we

:05:09.:05:13.

are helping people to move into self-employment. That is a good

:05:13.:05:18.

option for people over 50 who have years of experience to bear on

:05:18.:05:24.

building their own business. Should those people listening

:05:24.:05:31.

tonight be optimistic? You should always be optimistic. Do

:05:31.:05:35.

not lose hope. We want to steer people to the right opportunities

:05:35.:05:39.

as make them think of different kinds of opportunities they may not

:05:39.:05:42.

have considered before but where they have transferable skills for a

:05:42.:05:47.

different kind of job. Will do it all we can to help people back into

:05:47.:05:54.

work. For the employment minister talking

:05:54.:05:59.

to me earlier. We would like to hear about your experiences.

:05:59.:06:02.

We would love to hear from you this evening. What is your experience of

:06:02.:06:05.

trying to get a job, particularly in the private sector? As an

:06:05.:06:15.

employer, do you have vacancies you In a moment, the bogus bag

:06:15.:06:23.

collectors putting charity A father and three sons have been

:06:23.:06:27.

found guilty of murdering Adam Vincent from Grimsby. Adam

:06:27.:06:29.

Vincent's dismembered body was found at sites across North

:06:29.:06:33.

Lincolnshire last spring. A jury at Sheffield Crown Court found 43

:06:33.:06:36.

year-old Lee Griffiths guilty of murder along with his sons Luke

:06:36.:06:38.

Griffiths, who is 19, 20 year-old Thomas Griffiths and stepson 27-

:06:39.:06:45.

year-old Mark Jackson. The jury has still to deliver a verdict on

:06:45.:06:49.

Matthew Frow, who is also charged with murder. A sixth man, Andrew

:06:49.:06:52.

Lusher, charged with perverting the course of justice, has been cleared

:06:52.:06:56.

by the jury. New details have emerged today

:06:56.:06:59.

about police plans to exhume the grave in Hull of Christopher Alder

:06:59.:07:06.

who died in police custody 14 years ago. Despite his funeral and burial

:07:06.:07:09.

being held in 2000, his body was discovered at the city's mortuary

:07:09.:07:16.

last November. It is thought his grave contains the remains of Grace

:07:16.:07:24.

Kamara who died in 1999. Our correspondent, Vicky Johnson, has

:07:24.:07:29.

more. In a few short weeks - Hull's western cemetery should give up the

:07:29.:07:32.

secrets of who is buried in Christopher Alder's grave. It seems

:07:32.:07:35.

likely to contain the remains of Grace Kamara who died in 1999 but

:07:35.:07:43.

whose funeral had been delayed because of visa problems. Her

:07:43.:07:45.

friend says she has mixed feelings about the exhumation Christopher

:07:45.:07:48.

Alder, a former paratrooper died in controversial circumstances while

:07:48.:07:57.

in police custody in 1998. I would like to be there but it

:07:57.:08:01.

might be traumatic for me. My husband is a doctor and maybe a to

:08:01.:08:09.

stand it better. Despite his very public funeral 2 years later - his

:08:10.:08:14.

body was discovered last november in the hull mortuary. But soon,

:08:14.:08:17.

under cover of darkness as is the custom, the long exhumation process

:08:17.:08:26.

will take place. This afternoon I spoke to

:08:26.:08:34.

Christopher's brother Richard. His daughter's ashes are scattered on

:08:34.:08:39.

that Christopher's grave here. He says it he intends to be around for

:08:39.:08:44.

the exhumation. He hopes the whole process is handled as sensitively

:08:44.:08:48.

and discreetly as possible. The body will then be taken in a coffin

:08:48.:08:51.

to Sheffield for further forensic tests But even once the body in the

:08:51.:08:54.

grave is identified the families involved still need to know how

:08:54.:09:04.
:09:04.:09:04.

this terrible situation occurred in the first place.

:09:04.:09:09.

The body will be tested to answer the families will be informed of

:09:09.:09:15.

Tata Steel has secured a contract worth tens of millions of pounds to

:09:15.:09:19.

supply steel for Siemens wind power. The order for 25,000 tonnes of

:09:19.:09:22.

steel is the largest so far for the dedicated wind power hub at Tata's

:09:22.:09:26.

plant in Scunthorpe. The steel will be used to build 150 onshore

:09:26.:09:29.

turbines. A public hearing has started today

:09:30.:09:33.

to try and solve a four-year battle over a proposed wind farm in North

:09:33.:09:36.

Lincolnshire. The energy company Ridgewind wants to build seven

:09:36.:09:40.

turbines on land near Burton-Upon- Stather. The hearing involving

:09:41.:09:43.

developers and opponents was attended by almost 200 people with

:09:43.:09:53.
:09:53.:09:56.

some being forced to listen outside. If it gets approval, I will have to

:09:56.:10:01.

move. On no question. With our concerns the proposed her buyers

:10:01.:10:07.

will be far too close to properties. The British Heart Foundation says

:10:07.:10:09.

it believes bogus collectors are taking taking charity bags left

:10:09.:10:13.

outside peoples' homes to sell them overseas. It says it usually

:10:13.:10:16.

collects around a hundred bags of unwanted clothes and footwear on

:10:16.:10:20.

its rounds in the Beverley area, but recently just 50 were left.

:10:20.:10:25.

Emma Massey reports. It is collection day in Beverley.

:10:25.:10:28.

Charity bags filled with unwanted clothing and other goods are being

:10:28.:10:32.

picked up by volunteers from the British Heart Foundation. But there

:10:32.:10:41.

is a problem. We have thieves to go around and

:10:41.:10:46.

pick up donations. They do not get to the charity. They sell them on

:10:46.:10:55.

the back market and as they are exported overseas. -- black market.

:10:55.:10:58.

Antonio has been collecting charity bags for 10 years. He says the

:10:58.:11:06.

problem has got much worse. The we have argued with the people

:11:06.:11:15.

we have seen. We are reported to the police and nothing gets done.

:11:15.:11:20.

If a 50 bags were stolen on the last round, that is a loss of

:11:20.:11:30.
:11:30.:11:33.

potential revenue of �754 stop. think it is disgusting. I think it

:11:34.:11:38.

is a despicable things to do. problem is so bad that Hull-based

:11:38.:11:46.

charity Real Aid says it refuses to use collection bags for donations.

:11:46.:11:51.

It is appalling. When we do not know it -- we do not to collection

:11:51.:11:55.

bags for various reasons but this is one of them. Our drivers will go

:11:56.:12:04.

and collect from donors. They have IT with them as they have are

:12:04.:12:06.

Belmont -- are than sowed the donors know what is all up of

:12:06.:12:10.

thought. Humberside police say they're investigating the thefts

:12:10.:12:12.

and the British Heart Foundation says people need to be more

:12:12.:12:22.

vigilant to make sure their donations go to the right people.

:12:22.:12:26.

Joining me now it is a representatives from charity

:12:26.:12:30.

organisations. Who is stealing these bags? They are worth a lot of

:12:30.:12:36.

money. They are worth a lot of money. We

:12:36.:12:45.

are tackling this problem. I am meeting be at Home Secretary to

:12:45.:12:48.

discuss a police in response. Someone was sentenced to three

:12:48.:12:53.

years in prison for this crime just last week. People should not be too

:12:53.:12:59.

disheartened but it is being tackled.

:12:59.:13:06.

Should it be tackled by charities or the police? We should all tackle

:13:06.:13:11.

it together. If people are suspicious they should report it.

:13:11.:13:17.

This is theft so they will get a response from the police. What do

:13:17.:13:25.

you think of the people who do it? I think it is despicable. He would

:13:25.:13:32.

still from charity? We are working together to tackle best. His is a

:13:32.:13:36.

bad idea to put things in back on our doorsteps? Is the temptation to

:13:37.:13:44.

great? It is a great way to fund raised for charity is. As with

:13:44.:13:48.

anything that has value, there are people who will take it. We need to

:13:49.:13:54.

work together to stop them and tackle it. Reported to police. It

:13:54.:14:01.

is theft and the police can act on its. Should people still put their

:14:01.:14:10.

bags outside? Yes. It is a great way to fund raised. Do not let

:14:10.:14:17.

these thieves steal your charitable spirit.

:14:17.:14:22.

This is another story you might want to comment on. You may have a

:14:22.:14:31.

story to tell. Do text as on the number below or e-mail us. Thank

:14:31.:14:34.

you for watching. Still ahead tonight: Moving one

:14:34.:14:37.

step closer to using the Humber as an energy source for thousands of

:14:37.:14:39.

homes. And the crumbling tower that one

:14:39.:14:49.
:14:49.:15:00.

Keeper photographs coming in, if you have one you are proud of. Good

:15:00.:15:05.

evening. It was nice to see you back. You obviously knocked out

:15:05.:15:09.

last night due to the embarrassment of not being able to use some jump

:15:09.:15:14.

leads! For the first time in my life, I

:15:14.:15:18.

nearly had a panic attack. I thought I might have to spend the

:15:18.:15:25.

night in Barton on Humber. Only joking! The headline is a mixed one

:15:25.:15:30.

for the next 24 hours. It remains unsettled in general. Tomorrow may

:15:30.:15:38.

not be too bad. There will be some sunshine. There should be a

:15:39.:15:43.

reasonable amount of fine weather. We have been blessed with clear

:15:43.:15:49.

skies the last two evenings. It is more mixed now. There is a mixture

:15:49.:15:57.

of medium -- of medium and high cloud. They will be some rain to

:15:57.:16:01.

come a long Lincolnshire, particularly in the south. East

:16:02.:16:07.

Yorkshire should be dry with clear spells. Three Celsius in Driffield

:16:07.:16:17.
:16:17.:16:19.

and Bridlington. The sun will rise at 80 7:00am, and set up for 6:00pm.

:16:19.:16:24.

Any rain first thing in parts of Lincolnshire and North Norfolk will

:16:24.:16:31.

clear a way. It is not looking too bad. Mostly dry. There is every

:16:31.:16:36.

chance they will be a few showers around, particularly late in the

:16:36.:16:41.

day. I think a large part of tomorrow during daylight hours

:16:41.:16:49.

should be OK. Temperatures back to normal. Seven Celsius in Lincoln.

:16:49.:16:54.

That is 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Friday is looking much more

:16:54.:17:01.

unsettled. The weekend, sunny intervals and scattered showers.

:17:01.:17:11.
:17:11.:17:11.

Temperatures close to normal and a If you are watching in Barton on

:17:11.:17:15.

Humber, do direct any letters to him.

:17:15.:17:20.

I love Barton on Humber! Too late now!

:17:20.:17:24.

A row has broken out between a low- cost airline and a fledgling rival

:17:24.:17:30.

which wants to fly from Humberside airport. JetXtra is starting flight

:17:30.:17:34.

to Spain this summer, but the airline Jet2 is threatening legal

:17:35.:17:40.

action, saying the name is too similar to its own.

:17:40.:17:46.

It is a case of spot the difference. On one side, there is new company

:17:46.:17:52.

JetXtra, and on the other, airline Jet2. Jet2 things their names are

:17:52.:17:56.

too similar and is threatening court action. JetXtra told us it

:17:56.:18:00.

will not change its brand. company name is completely

:18:00.:18:06.

different. Our logo and branding are completely different. We think

:18:06.:18:16.

they just try to flex their muscles and warned us that they are there.

:18:16.:18:20.

Jet2's solicitors have sent a letter to JetXtra, demanding it

:18:20.:18:24.

changed its name by tomorrow. The airline said although it supports

:18:24.:18:28.

free and fair competition, there is a possibility a significant number

:18:28.:18:32.

of the public would be misled a confused into believing that his

:18:32.:18:36.

company is associated with Jet2. Other airlines, including easyJet

:18:36.:18:42.

and Jetstar, already used the word jet. Is it possible for a company

:18:42.:18:48.

to own the word? This solicitor says that is unlikely. It bales and

:18:48.:18:51.

to whether one company has a monopoly over the word jet as part

:18:52.:18:58.

of a corporate name. The court would make -- a court would need to

:18:58.:19:08.
:19:08.:19:12.

weigh up evidence. For Humberside Airport, creating eight new flight

:19:12.:19:17.

would boost its business and the wider economy. It is good news. Not

:19:17.:19:22.

only will it create much-needed jobs, but it is more convenient for

:19:22.:19:26.

my constituents to go on their holidays. It brings choice closer

:19:26.:19:31.

to them. JetXtra says it is determined its first flight will

:19:31.:19:36.

take off on June 1st. The only doubt will be what name it will fly

:19:36.:19:41.

under. Thank you for getting in touch

:19:41.:19:46.

about our story that children from the age of four in Hull and

:19:46.:19:49.

Lincolnshire are being introduced to positive game role-models to try

:19:49.:19:56.

and reduce homophobic bullying. Studies have shown that around half

:19:56.:19:59.

of gay and lesbian pupils had faced verbal or physical attacks a while

:19:59.:20:09.
:20:09.:20:31.

at school. Here are some of your Thank you very much for all of

:20:31.:20:36.

theirs. Plans to use the Humber to power

:20:36.:20:38.

thousands of customers arris step closer as the first full-scale

:20:38.:20:46.

tidal power generator was clenched today -- launched today. This

:20:46.:20:52.

device will help power the Deep in Hull. It is hoped several similar

:20:52.:20:56.

machines will be able to provide green energy on a much larger scale.

:20:56.:21:01.

The atmosphere was tense at Hull docks. After months of planning,

:21:01.:21:06.

this was the day this yellow machine, the Neptune Proteus, hope

:21:06.:21:10.

to begin a journey aimed at eventually bringing tidal power to

:21:10.:21:19.

thousands. These would be the first to benefit. Our systems work 24,

:21:20.:21:26.

seven. Having a generator on our doorstep is ideal. The Neptune

:21:26.:21:31.

Proteus works by taking tidal water in from the Humber. A tear ban

:21:31.:21:36.

inside tents at into energy. That is taken by cables to the shore and

:21:36.:21:41.

sent to The Deep as electricity. The great difference between wind

:21:41.:21:44.

energy and tidal stream energy is that the tide is completely

:21:44.:21:50.

predictable. We know when we will be generating, and when we will not

:21:50.:21:55.

be. Today's journey could be of huge importance to the future of

:21:55.:21:59.

tidal power. Once this device is in place at The Deep, it will be

:21:59.:22:03.

monitored over the next few months and will work as a model for a

:22:03.:22:08.

string of similar devices here in the Humber. In the future, they

:22:08.:22:13.

could bring enough energy to power the equivalent of 3,000 homes.

:22:13.:22:17.

Aside from reliable green energy, tidal power, like other renewables,

:22:17.:22:25.

is big business. His is certainly going to bring work. These devices

:22:25.:22:30.

have to be designed, manufactured, maintained it operated. It

:22:30.:22:35.

inevitably will produce work and we will lead people to do that.

:22:35.:22:39.

Electricity was that been made in around three months. In the future,

:22:39.:22:43.

it is hoped tidal power will be another huge industry based in the

:22:43.:22:48.

Humber. Fascinating. Siobhan Robbins is at

:22:48.:22:52.

The Deep now. How bigger boost could this technology before our

:22:52.:23:02.

area? This will create jobs, but its importance needs to be seen in

:23:02.:23:05.

the wider context of the renewables revolution which is going on in

:23:05.:23:10.

this area. Siemens is planning on building a wind turbine factory up

:23:10.:23:15.

the road, which will create hundreds of jobs. We have

:23:15.:23:21.

investments in wind power also on the South Bank. We also have

:23:21.:23:29.

offshore investment in tidal power. It could create tens of thousands

:23:29.:23:34.

of local jobs in maintenance and supply. One local business leader

:23:34.:23:38.

told me he thinks that green energy is as important as the fishing

:23:38.:23:43.

industry was in its heyday to the local economy. Thank you very much.

:23:43.:23:49.

That is a story we will continue to follow. If you have a story you

:23:49.:23:53.
