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

:00:06.:00:08.

As plans for a line of electricity pylons through the Lincolnshire

:00:08.:00:11.

countryside are scrapped, what could the impact be on the future

:00:11.:00:21.
:00:21.:00:23.

of wind energy? This site was totally unacceptable. A pile on

:00:23.:00:26.

line down the coast was unacceptable.

:00:26.:00:29.

Defending her decision to resign - the Euro MP who'll be succeeded by

:00:29.:00:35.

her husband but it's all within the rules. It is up to the person who

:00:35.:00:41.

is now second on the list to decide what he wants to do. I think it is

:00:41.:00:44.

a little bit dodgy. It is not against the rules.

:00:44.:00:46.

Training hard for gold medal glory - the sporting hopefuls from

:00:46.:00:49.

Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire fighting for a place at the

:00:49.:00:51.

Olympics. After weeks of rehearsal, it's

:00:51.:00:59.

nearly time for this year's BBC pantomime performance.

:00:59.:01:02.

And that all-important weekend weather forecast will follow later

:01:02.:01:12.
:01:12.:01:13.

A group who have been fighting plans against 30 miles of power

:01:13.:01:17.

cables across the Lincolnshire countryside are claiming victory.

:01:17.:01:20.

The energy company behind the proposals was told it will have to

:01:20.:01:23.

dig cables underground to transport power from a planned wind farm off

:01:23.:01:28.

the coast. Now RWE energy say they're looking at the feasibility

:01:28.:01:33.

of the whole idea. Our environment correspondent Siobhan Robbins has

:01:33.:01:37.

more. Campaigners have made their

:01:37.:01:42.

feelings about a substation in the Wolds very clear. The 40 acre site

:01:42.:01:45.

was needed to connect energy from hundreds of giant offshore turbines

:01:45.:01:55.
:01:55.:01:55.

like these to the national grid but now the idea has been scrapped.

:01:55.:02:00.

are obviously delighted. This site was totally unacceptable with a

:02:00.:02:08.

pile on site in Lincolnshire coast being unacceptable. -- pylon.

:02:08.:02:10.

original plan meant energy from Triton Knoll would have come onto

:02:10.:02:14.

land and be fed into a substation in East Linsey. 46m high pylons

:02:14.:02:17.

would then have wound their way down 55km the East Coast to Bicker

:02:17.:02:20.

Fen Substation. Now the idea is a cable under the sea will bring the

:02:20.:02:26.

power to land near Bicker Fen where it'll be fed into the national grid.

:02:26.:02:29.

This is the sub-station near Boston which will take the electricity end.

:02:30.:02:34.

It will not do it alone. Under new plans, another sub-station could be

:02:34.:02:39.

built here and it could even stretch over 40 acres, just like

:02:39.:02:43.

the one that has been scrapped. Have campaigners only moved their

:02:43.:02:49.

problems down the road? I do not think so. Our position was clear.

:02:49.:02:53.

They have existing wind farms built onshore and have a sub-station

:02:53.:02:57.

there. We have always made it clear we will only support the

:02:57.:03:02.

development of sub-stations and pylons on existing sites and on

:03:02.:03:05.

existing routes. They do not want to see any more of Lincolnshire

:03:05.:03:08.

damaged by industrial development in the countryside. Campaigners

:03:08.:03:12.

here may have won this fight but the East Coast is prime land for

:03:12.:03:14.

more offshore windfarms and many more will need connecting to the

:03:14.:03:21.

land. We are going to need the infrastructure in order to

:03:21.:03:24.

transport energy no matter how me make it. There will have to be some

:03:24.:03:28.

land appropriated for sub-stations and they will have to be

:03:28.:03:31.

infrastructure like cables, in this case. It is not the right way

:03:31.:03:34.

forward and they would rather put money into the new influx of energy

:03:34.:03:38.

to get the country going again. new plans for Triton Knoll still

:03:38.:03:40.

need finalising and public approval but underground cables and

:03:40.:03:43.

substations aren't cheap which raises the question, how high does

:03:43.:03:46.

the bill for connection have to get before the windfarm itself becomes

:03:46.:03:56.
:03:56.:03:58.

Adam Bell from Renewables UK who promotes green energy says the

:03:58.:04:00.

decision not to put cables underground wouldn't put companies

:04:00.:04:10.
:04:10.:04:11.

off investing in renewable energy. Not at all. What you have to

:04:11.:04:14.

consider is the way in which offshore wind is going to be

:04:14.:04:17.

delivered. It will be delivered across a lot of the North Sea and

:04:18.:04:23.

we're going to make sure that the impact upon people who live along

:04:23.:04:28.

the east coast is minimised. We will do that by having as few

:04:28.:04:31.

connections as possible. The technology we are looking at using

:04:31.:04:33.

means we can bring in more power than perhaps we would have

:04:33.:04:39.

otherwise been able to, which will hope we minimise the impact. What

:04:39.:04:43.

people are interested in, pylons are underground and now this one

:04:43.:04:48.

has to be underground. Both technologies have impacts upon the

:04:48.:04:52.

landscape. What is important is to make sure that people can

:04:52.:04:58.

participate in the way in which this is delivered, for example,

:04:58.:05:01.

which would it have taken and perhaps where the sub-station is.

:05:01.:05:05.

If they have a chance to participate in decision-making,

:05:05.:05:12.

they may not -- may find it more acceptable. It will cost you

:05:12.:05:16.

companies are not for lot more than double the destruction of people --

:05:16.:05:20.

if they go underground. Will that not put people off investing in

:05:20.:05:29.

green? I think technology has moved on and this technology is cheaper

:05:29.:05:34.

than underground cables would have been in the past. As a consequence,

:05:34.:05:37.

it may be encouraging and demonstrate innovation is being

:05:37.:05:47.

applied. How clean is wind power if it means digging up rural areas,

:05:47.:05:53.

which will mean mile upon mile? give you an example, every single

:05:53.:05:57.

one per bind will make up for its construction within a year of

:05:57.:06:01.

operation which means it will cut down carbon emissions and cut down

:06:01.:06:07.

the use the power from polluting power stations. It means, to give

:06:07.:06:11.

you an example, our countryside will remain less impact of from

:06:11.:06:15.

countries -- climate change than would have otherwise been the case.

:06:15.:06:19.

Thank you. We want to hear from you on this

:06:19.:06:22.

story. Do you think pylons or digging up the countryside are a

:06:22.:06:26.

necessary evil of green energy or do you think the impact would be

:06:26.:06:34.

too great on the landscape? Maybe you do not want them at all. Let us

:06:34.:06:44.
:06:44.:06:54.

The tiny pellets of wood that could bring power to thousands as another

:06:54.:06:58.

green energy company makes plans to come to the Humber.

:06:58.:07:01.

A Euro MP from East Yorkshire has defended her decision to resign - a

:07:01.:07:05.

move which paves the way for her husband to take over her job

:07:05.:07:08.

without a single vote being cast. Under current rules, Diana Wallis's

:07:08.:07:11.

husband will step into her shoes because he was the Liberal

:07:11.:07:17.

Democrats' second choice candidate at the last European elections. But

:07:17.:07:19.

critics have accused the MEP of doing more damage to the

:07:19.:07:29.
:07:29.:07:32.

reputations of politicians, a claim she strongly denies.

:07:32.:07:36.

It is a resignation that shocked the world of European politics.

:07:36.:07:41.

Diana Wallis has represented the region on behalf of the Liberal

:07:41.:07:46.

Democrats for more than 12 years. This week, she failed in her bed to

:07:46.:07:49.

become the president of the European Parliament. Speaking at

:07:49.:07:53.

her home in East Yorkshire, she told me why she has decided to step

:07:53.:07:58.

down now. There is a tinge of disillusionment but the

:07:58.:08:04.

disillusionment that inspires me to say, I think I can do more here

:08:04.:08:08.

than in being a way. If the argument about Europe needs to be

:08:08.:08:13.

made, it needs to be made here. R Wallace as a former solicitor who

:08:13.:08:18.

later became a Liberal Democrat councillor on the old Humberside

:08:18.:08:23.

authority and in the East Riding. She became an MEP in 1989 and has

:08:23.:08:28.

served as a vice-president of the European Parliament. Diana Wallis

:08:28.:08:32.

says she will step down at the end of the month. A likely successor is

:08:32.:08:39.

causing some controversy. Under current rules, the Liberal Democrat

:08:39.:08:43.

second-choice candidate at the time of the last European election will

:08:43.:08:49.

take her place. He is Stuart Arnold, who also happens to beat Diana

:08:49.:08:55.

Wallis's husband. I think it is a little bit dodgy, it is not against

:08:55.:09:00.

the rules in the way that flipping your house is to avoid capital

:09:00.:09:05.

gains tax was against the rules, but I think what we're trying to do

:09:05.:09:08.

now in politics to try to catch up on our reputation of being complete

:09:08.:09:12.

scoundrels, is to try to avoid this kind of thing, which is clearly

:09:12.:09:17.

within the rules but a bit smelly. What do you say to your colleagues

:09:17.:09:24.

who say this is an example of nepotism? There was a selection

:09:24.:09:32.

with in my party. There was a public collection. It is up to the

:09:32.:09:40.

person who is now second on the list to decide what he wants to do.

:09:40.:09:44.

Diana Wallis says she remains a committed pro-European Liberal

:09:44.:09:47.

Democrat but in this year of coalition politics, the spotlight

:09:47.:09:54.

is on a political marriage of a different kind.

:09:54.:09:57.

Tim Iredale will be here on Sunday when he'll be hosting a debate on

:09:57.:10:02.

whether the rules should be changed when an MEP resigns. The Sunday

:10:02.:10:12.
:10:12.:10:15.

Politics is on BBC One at noon. Four men found guilty of murdering

:10:15.:10:18.

a grim as the men have been sentenced a total of 114 years in

:10:18.:10:25.

prison. Adam Benson's body parts were found in what are ways across

:10:25.:10:33.

Lincoln. Lee Griffiths will serve a minimum

:10:33.:10:36.

of 32 years in prison. His son Luke Griffiths will serve a minimum of

:10:36.:10:42.

26 years. Tom Griffiths, 27 years and Mark Jackson 29 years. Adam

:10:42.:10:47.

Vincent's family celebrated. I am glad it is all over and we have got

:10:47.:10:53.

justice for Adam. Never completely satisfied and I don't think we ever

:10:53.:10:59.

will be. It is justice for Adam now and I hope it is justice for him. I

:10:59.:11:03.

hope they think about what they have done every day of their lives.

:11:03.:11:06.

A log-flume ride on Bridlington's sea front has been taken down

:11:06.:11:09.

following an accident last year in which a woman suffered serious leg

:11:09.:11:11.

injuries. 58-year-old Ann Smallwood from South Yorkshire was with her

:11:11.:11:14.

4-year-old great niece when they were both thrown from the Jungle

:11:14.:11:17.

River ride in August. The Health and Safety Executive is still to

:11:17.:11:22.

decide whether it will take further action over the incident.

:11:22.:11:25.

Within the last couple of hours a deal has been reached that could

:11:25.:11:30.

see tolls reduced on the Humber Bridge. Leaders of four councils

:11:30.:11:32.

met this afternoon to discuss who should underwrite the outstanding

:11:32.:11:38.

debt. The government had already agreed to clear half of the �330

:11:38.:11:41.

million owed, which would allow the cost of a single crossing for a car

:11:41.:11:46.

to be cut to �1.50. Tonight, Hull City Council has agreed to shoulder

:11:47.:11:52.

the remaining debt single-handedly. Phil Connell is live at the Humber

:11:52.:12:02.
:12:02.:12:04.

Bridge tonight. How was the deal done? The government's condition of

:12:04.:12:08.

writing off half of the debt was that the four surrounding a

:12:09.:12:11.

authorities take on the equal responsibility for the outstanding

:12:11.:12:15.

debt which was left. That has proved to be something of a

:12:15.:12:21.

sticking point with North East Lincolnshire Council claiming they

:12:21.:12:26.

are unable to agree to that. Following a meeting here, Hull city

:12:26.:12:31.

council has come forward with a new proposal which would see them take

:12:31.:12:34.

on single handed responsibility for this debt without the support of

:12:34.:12:40.

the three neighbouring authorities. Hull has said that an authority --

:12:40.:12:44.

if an agreement cannot be reached, we will shoulder the debt and we

:12:44.:12:48.

see it as a liability, not a debt. That would allow tolls to be

:12:48.:12:52.

reduced and it is important this goes out to the government loud and

:12:52.:12:56.

clear, that Hull is at the centre of the city region and the Humber

:12:56.:13:02.

area remains open for business. What people are interested in is

:13:02.:13:08.

when the tolls will come down. Although Hull City Council has

:13:08.:13:13.

agreed to single-handedly take on this responsibility, not all of the

:13:13.:13:16.

local authorities are happy. Northland is a council say they

:13:16.:13:21.

would rather see a system where everyone had shared equally in

:13:21.:13:25.

taking on this debt. Because of that, they believe this new idea

:13:25.:13:29.

could still encounter some problems. Hull City Council believes the

:13:29.:13:33.

government will accept this and they say that all being well, their

:13:33.:13:36.

toll charges here at the bridge could still be reduced by 50% by

:13:37.:13:46.
:13:47.:13:49.

Thank you for watching on Friday. Still ahead.... Dreaming of Olympic

:13:49.:13:52.

success - the athletes working hard to secure their place at the games.

:13:52.:13:55.

And after weeks of rehearsal preparing for one last festive

:13:55.:14:05.
:14:05.:14:06.

tradition, the BBC pantomime performance. This is Grainsby in

:14:06.:14:14.

Lincolnshire, taken by Gavin Prior. Thank you very much for that. If

:14:14.:14:18.

you have a picture that you have taken over the weekend, please send

electric current because they need The headlines are unsettled.

:14:50.:14:54.

Tomorrow, it will start of damp and it should brighten up as we head

:14:54.:14:59.

into the afternoon. It is a broad run of westerly wind, we do quite

:14:59.:15:04.

well usually with the set-up but Sunday could be similar with some

:15:04.:15:08.

rain at first and then it brightens up into the afternoon. Throughout

:15:08.:15:14.

the weekend, very windy. Miserable right now. Cloudy and damp with

:15:14.:15:20.

rain and drizzle affecting much of the region. That will continue into

:15:20.:15:27.

the night, the wind will strengthen and the rain tends to peter out but

:15:27.:15:31.

there will still be drizzle in places and the wind could reach

:15:31.:15:39.

gale force in exposed parts. Lows of around six degrees. The sun will

:15:39.:15:49.
:15:49.:15:49.

rise in the morning at 8:05am. This is the high water times... It will

:15:49.:15:53.

be a slow start tomorrow, cloudy and damp with drizzle and the odd

:15:53.:15:59.

spot of rain but it will very slowly improve through the day. I

:15:59.:16:02.

have expecting the skies to brighten up and they should be

:16:02.:16:07.

sunny spells and the chance of showers. The wind continues to be

:16:07.:16:10.

strong, blowing from the West and temperatures not too bad for this

:16:10.:16:18.

time of year. Nine degrees in Grimsby, Lincoln and Skegness.

:16:18.:16:22.

Sunday, some rain at first but looking more promising for Sunday

:16:22.:16:32.
:16:32.:16:34.

afternoon. Picture? Have you I have remembered the jump leads!

:16:34.:16:42.

Don't give yourself a shock! the nice weekend. Now... It would

:16:42.:16:45.

provide enough power for tens of thousands of homes and cost more

:16:45.:16:48.

than �100 million. Proposals for a new green power station in Hull

:16:48.:16:51.

have been revealed today. The developers say more than 200 jobs

:16:51.:16:54.

will be created if the wood burning plant is given planning permission.

:16:54.:16:57.

And as Paul Murphy reports, it's part of the growth of new green

:16:57.:17:05.

industries on the Humber. The dockside location for the proposed

:17:05.:17:10.

plant is important. It will burn tiny pellets of waste would shipped

:17:10.:17:14.

in from Europe and beyond. The developers are stressing it is

:17:14.:17:22.

green. We can make massive savings in biomass and it is neutral. It

:17:22.:17:28.

can only be met the same as is absorbed. The power station will be

:17:28.:17:33.

built near Queen Elizabeth docked in Hull. Next door to the proposed

:17:33.:17:37.

see man's wind turbine factory. Once operational, this will

:17:37.:17:41.

generate enough electricity to supply a third of businesses in the

:17:42.:17:47.

area. And those behind it want to see it working by 2015. Around 200

:17:47.:17:51.

jobs will be created in construction and around 30 full-

:17:51.:17:57.

time staff working here. It marks another investment in green energy

:17:57.:18:01.

in the Humber. A similar power plant running on food and garden

:18:01.:18:06.

waste has already been given the go-ahead. There are projects trying

:18:06.:18:09.

to harness the power of the river through growing numbers of jobs in

:18:09.:18:14.

areas such as wind turbine maintenance. It is good to have

:18:14.:18:19.

more than one egg in your basket. It brings all the experts into one

:18:19.:18:22.

place and helps develop new technology and we need to bring the

:18:22.:18:28.

price of energy down and having three types, tidal, wind and

:18:28.:18:32.

biomass, can only help. planning application will be

:18:32.:18:37.

submitted to the council in April and, if approved, construction can

:18:37.:18:44.

begin before the end of the year. And we will continue to follow that

:18:44.:18:49.

story. Thanks for getting in touch with us about the calls to change

:18:49.:18:54.

the name of Skegness that we told you about on last night's programme.

:18:54.:18:58.

There was a big response and also on the radio today. Jerry from

:18:58.:19:04.

Woodhall Spa says Skegness is fantastic. You should call it Super

:19:04.:19:07.

Skegness or Royal Skegness. Diana agrees. Skegness has a regular and

:19:07.:19:09.

loyal band of holidaymakers who enjoy slot machines, kiss-me-quick

:19:09.:19:17.

hats and fish and chips. Leave Skegness alone. Les from Coningsby

:19:17.:19:19.

says, keep the name Skegness, abolish East Lindsey District

:19:19.:19:22.

Coucil, run this part of the county from Lincoln and spend half the

:19:22.:19:32.
:19:32.:19:34.

money saved on a Skegness upgrade. What do we think about that one?

:19:34.:19:38.

Thank you very much for those comments. With less than two weeks

:19:38.:19:41.

before the start of the new Rugby League season, thousands of fans in

:19:41.:19:44.

Hull are looking forward to a pre- season derby this weekend. Hull FC

:19:44.:19:47.

will welcome rivals Hull KR to the KC Stadium on Sunday, with both

:19:47.:19:57.

sides having new coaches and some new players. It'll be a good test.

:19:57.:20:02.

I have not experienced the Derby yet but I am told it is pretty good,

:20:02.:20:07.

pretty good for us. I am under no false pretences about how

:20:07.:20:12.

passionate those supporters are. As far as I'm concerned, Rovers are

:20:12.:20:17.

even more passionate. We are out to do our best and get a result for

:20:17.:20:24.

all of those passionate supporters. There will be full coverage of the

:20:24.:20:27.

derby match on BBC Radio Humberside. The game will be live on FM on

:20:27.:20:33.

Sunday. It begins at 1.30pm. In football, Hull City are away at

:20:33.:20:37.

fellow promotion contenders Reading. You can find commentary on BBC

:20:37.:20:40.

Radio Humberside. On AM, it's Scunthorpe United at home to

:20:41.:20:46.

Stevenage. Grimsby Town's game against Bath will be on DAB. BBC

:20:47.:20:49.

Lincolnshire will have commentary of Lincoln City's trip to Gateshead

:20:49.:20:59.

starting at 2pm. It's just six months to go to the Olympics and

:20:59.:21:01.

for athletes across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, it's approaching

:21:01.:21:06.

a crucial period. Many are hoping to secure their place at this

:21:06.:21:08.

summer's Games or improve their chances as they enter the final

:21:08.:21:14.

training period. We are going to be hearing a lot more about them in

:21:24.:21:27.

around the corner so join me as to follow five R plates from Yorkshire

:21:27.:21:37.

and Lincolnshire on their road to London 2012. She looks very good at

:21:37.:21:47.
:21:47.:21:47.

double that. This young man will have 2012 in his sights. What a

:21:47.:21:53.

moment for Richard. I am honest, I want to get an individual place in

:21:53.:21:59.

the 400 metres and won a medal for the relay team. It is blood, sweat

:21:59.:22:04.

and tears, putting in the hours in the pool and it is tough. To get

:22:04.:22:09.

the medals would be fantastic. next six months will be so fast,

:22:09.:22:18.

I'm just concentrating on improving. I want to be the best I can be.

:22:18.:22:24.

2012, it will be a better year than 2011, for all of my family. It will

:22:24.:22:31.

give us something to take our minds of everything that has happened.

:22:31.:22:41.
:22:41.:22:44.

would be my dream. It would just be my world, really. That is a great

:22:44.:22:47.

programme. You can see that programme at 5pm on Sunday on BBC

:22:47.:22:50.

One. And as you saw, the programme is presented by John Inverdale, who

:22:51.:22:53.

told me that Yorkshire and Lincolnshire has a lot to be

:22:53.:23:00.

excited about. The whole country has a lot to be excited about. What

:23:00.:23:04.

do the Games mean to me in Bridlington or Grimsby? If there is

:23:04.:23:07.

a medallist from this part of the world he goes home on the open-top

:23:07.:23:13.

bus, my goodness, we will be excited. The boxer from Hall has a

:23:13.:23:17.

real opportunity in the bantamweight category. There are

:23:17.:23:21.

reasons to be optimistic and cheerful. Who should we be watching

:23:21.:23:28.

from this part of the world? Who has the best chance? Lazy Simmons

:23:28.:23:33.

is a phenomenal slumber. She has medals in major championships,

:23:33.:23:37.

domestic and European and the Commonwealth Games. And the

:23:37.:23:41.

Olympics is the world. The worst thing that the media can do is

:23:41.:23:44.

saddle these young people, because they are young, and a lot of them

:23:44.:23:48.

have not been selected yet. A lot of them have not been picked yet.

:23:49.:23:54.

We saddle them with almost greater expectations than is warranted. If

:23:54.:23:58.

you watch the programme on Sunday, sandwiched between the Antiques

:23:59.:24:02.

Roadshow and songs of Praise. You will see five incredibly determined,

:24:02.:24:06.

single-minded young people from the area, who will hopefully get to the

:24:06.:24:11.

Olympic Games and get medals. are not the antique in the middle!

:24:11.:24:17.

We look forward to that programme. It don't forget, 5:00pm on Sunday.

best dancer on stage. But others are old hands, like breakfast

presenter Andy Comfort. He's done the panto for the past ten years.

:25:12.:25:19.

But this time he's got to learn more than lines. I don't want to

:25:19.:25:24.

spoil the plot but we start with a spectacular sword fight and we have

:25:24.:25:27.

choreographed this properly and Ruby is a proper fencing teacher

:25:27.:25:32.

who has taught us some that moves. Last year's panto raised money for

St Andrew's Hospice in Grimsby. This year the cash is going to

of pylons and Underground Power, Lucy says that the landscape is

:26:58.:27:01.

beautiful but we must move on with modern developments, especially

green energy. Look says that it is great to have underground cables

:27:05.:27:10.

because it would not be an eyesore. Kieran says it is a case of selfish

:27:10.:27:13.

people who put themselves above the future energy resources of the

:27:13.:27:19.

country. And Chris says, if it was spectacular countryside, attracting

:27:19.:27:27.

millions of tourists, I might agree. Pylons, strung across farmland,
