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

:00:03.:00:07.

A skills gap - the challenge for Hull because it doesn't have the

:00:07.:00:14.

right type of workers. I am aiming to move down to London

:00:14.:00:19.

where I can get a better eight -- better wage. There's not many jobs

:00:19.:00:22.

here. Lincolnshire gets a fleet on new

:00:22.:00:29.

ambulances designed for obese patients.

:00:29.:00:34.

You are breaking the law? What law is that? You are not allowed to do

:00:34.:00:37.

that by law. The row over a photograph that's

:00:37.:00:39.

had thousands of views on the internet.

:00:39.:00:41.

And why paintings inspired by the East Yorkshire countryside are

:00:42.:00:51.
:00:52.:01:01.

The latest in a where they're coming up shortly.

:01:01.:01:05.

There are warnings that Hull will face major challenges this year

:01:05.:01:08.

because the work force doesn't have the right skills. The report says

:01:08.:01:12.

there is a shortage of accountants, surgeons and other professional

:01:12.:01:18.

workers who bring money into the city. It says Hull relies on lower-

:01:18.:01:24.

paid jobs instead. In a moment, I will be talking to the man in

:01:24.:01:29.

charge of the city's regeneration. It is a city with more brawn than

:01:29.:01:34.

brains. Today's report highlights Hull as having people with manual

:01:34.:01:38.

skills but when it comes to knowledgeable jobs for graduates,

:01:38.:01:44.

obesity is failing badly. Something that concerns centre for cities, an

:01:44.:01:49.

organisation which monitors economic performance.

:01:49.:01:55.

Trying to increase the skill levels of the people in her Hull is a

:01:56.:02:00.

massive priority. In terms of taking people with fewer

:02:00.:02:05.

qualifications and improving them. It places Hull a second on the

:02:05.:02:12.

brain ladder. 70% of the city's people employed in knowledgeable

:02:12.:02:17.

jobs. It compares poorly with cities like Cambridge where the

:02:17.:02:26.

figure is 30%. It is a problem that has developed since having a very

:02:26.:02:31.

good university. After three years here, the appeal seems to diminish

:02:31.:02:35.

with most graduates choosing to start their careers in other parts

:02:35.:02:40.

of the country. I am aiming to move down to London or a bigger city

:02:40.:02:45.

where I can get a better wage or job. I will probably leave Hull and

:02:45.:02:51.

head was the capital. This Hull Training Centre says the findings

:02:51.:02:56.

dismiss thousands of manual workers who can play just as big a role in

:02:56.:03:01.

boosting the economy. Not everybody is going to be an accountant or

:03:01.:03:05.

solicitor but they can be the business people of the future.

:03:05.:03:10.

Let's get rid of that snobbery. This year the new fibre optic Brut

:03:11.:03:16.

and might do that. It is being extended to more than 15,000 homes

:03:16.:03:21.

in Hull and East Yorkshire. One local company which depends on it

:03:21.:03:25.

says the investment could provide the kind of knowledge boost that

:03:25.:03:34.

Hull has sown -- so far been missing. If you were offers super-

:03:34.:03:39.

fast broadband, it will be more appealing for businesses to set up

:03:39.:03:44.

in the city. -- offered. They say it could be the cause of slower

:03:44.:03:48.

growth and prosperity. The city they say has been left in a

:03:48.:03:56.

vulnerable position. Steven Bayes is in charge of

:03:56.:03:58.

regeneration and employment at Hull City Council and his here. Would

:03:58.:04:06.

you welcome more powers? There is a report on how to look at

:04:06.:04:10.

how these powers could be utilised by the council and we're hoping to

:04:10.:04:15.

achieve that. What would you do to bring more professionals into the

:04:15.:04:21.

city? That is a strange questions because they are professionals that

:04:21.:04:26.

commute into Hull and they are not included in this document. 50% of

:04:26.:04:36.
:04:36.:04:38.

those that Cnut of those high knowledge, I paid professionals.

:04:38.:04:47.

commute. Hull is the city council area. Cambridge and eight -- Adam

:04:47.:04:55.

Brown are at the top of the list. Hull is second bottom. -- Edinburgh.

:04:55.:05:05.
:05:05.:05:05.

The announcement today by Casey will help that. They are trying to

:05:05.:05:10.

bring those highly-skilled jobs into the city. What do you think of

:05:10.:05:15.

these league tables which also puts the average salary in Hull as the

:05:15.:05:21.

lowest in all of the places? information, you can't challenge.

:05:21.:05:25.

It is how the information is put together and it doesn't tell us

:05:25.:05:30.

anything we don't know. They talked about the need of places like Hull

:05:30.:05:34.

to establish new industries. That is what we are trying to do. When

:05:35.:05:39.

one of these things comes out, the league tables come out, when his

:05:39.:05:45.

Hull not going to be second bottom? Hopefully soon. What is the one

:05:45.:05:51.

thing that would change the city's fortunes? Extend his boundaries,

:05:51.:05:58.

that would do it but it is not... Draw the match but wider and call

:05:58.:06:02.

it hall and you have sorted it? would solve the problem that

:06:02.:06:07.

doesn't sort out the root cause. What we are trying to do is

:06:07.:06:11.

although it talks about manual jobs, if they are in manufacturing, we

:06:11.:06:15.

are trying to get more people into manufacturing. It is about

:06:15.:06:18.

increasing the skills of those people and getting them into a

:06:18.:06:23.

higher-paid job. I would like to hear your views on

:06:23.:06:28.

this. What needs to be done to attract a higher salary earners to

:06:28.:06:38.
:06:38.:06:51.

I look forward to hearing from you. In a moment, why a half-a-million

:06:51.:06:54.

pound investment in Lincoln City could have secured the club's

:06:54.:07:00.

future. They will be able to carry people

:07:00.:07:04.

who weigh up to 50 stones and from this week, a fleet of new

:07:04.:07:07.

ambulances will arrive in Lincolnshire. East Midlands

:07:07.:07:12.

Ambulance Service will have 37 of the new vehicles in response to an

:07:12.:07:19.

increase in obesity across the area. Transporting super heavy patients

:07:19.:07:23.

once made headlines its news with specialist teams have and to be

:07:23.:07:27.

drafted in. Now, with rising obesity levels, it is becoming much

:07:27.:07:35.

more common. This is a barrier trick kapok ball ramp. This is the

:07:35.:07:44.

chair that assists in taking the patient downstairs. -- this is a

:07:44.:07:52.

barrier at trick ramp. It will take a patient up to 50 stones. It

raises and lowers electricity -- electrically so it is my there for

the patient. They are investing in 80 of these vehicles, the third --

:08:05.:08:08.

first 37 will be at deployed to Lincolnshire. They can carry

:08:08.:08:14.

patients weighing up to 50 stone. Clare Greg has been slim for eight

:08:14.:08:16.

years but the memories of being bundled into an ambulance that

:08:16.:08:21.

wasn't equipped to carry her 25 stone frame are still dramatically

:08:21.:08:31.

vivid. The trolley I was on, I was bulging over the sides. It was very

:08:31.:08:35.

uncomfortable and degrading for me. I felt sorry for the staff that had

:08:35.:08:40.

to deal with me as well. While the arrival of the vehicles is being

:08:40.:08:44.

welcomed, unions are all bombing crews will still face problems with

:08:45.:08:54.
:08:55.:09:00.

obese problems. This often requires 45 ambulance personnel and a

:09:00.:09:04.

significant period of time to get them down from their house. This

:09:04.:09:09.

can cause so many problems. Patient transport has now become a big

:09:09.:09:13.

issue but it is hoped the whole of the East Midlands ambulance fleet

:09:13.:09:18.

would be capable of moving everyone, whatever their weight.

:09:18.:09:22.

An agreement has been reached for a new tourism bodies to be formed in

:09:23.:09:26.

Lincolnshire. The organisation will promote and develop Skegness and

:09:26.:09:30.

the rest of the Lincolnshire coast and will be funded by local

:09:30.:09:34.

businesses, groups and the East Lindsey District Council.

:09:34.:09:38.

Thank you for getting in touch about our story on pylons in

:09:38.:09:43.

Lincolnshire. A group who have been fighting plans against 30 miles of

:09:43.:09:47.

power cables across the countryside are claiming victory. The energy

:09:48.:09:53.

company was told it will have to dig cables underground to transport

:09:53.:10:03.

viewed by thousands of people on the internet.

your man. A dicky bird tells me you are

:11:08.:11:12.

excited tonight. I was wondering whether to take my

:11:12.:11:17.

lens cap off to see the Northern Lights tonight. That makes me sound

:11:17.:11:20.

very sad. You might stand out there for 12

:11:20.:11:24.

hours and not see it. That is up to you.

:11:25.:11:32.

Is that a Yes, all I know? It is a know. There is a fantastic

could be rain which could be It is courtesy of this warm front.

A cold start but cloud will thicken through the morning and we will see

rain preceded by a short spell of sleet and snow. It will quickly

:12:57.:13:01.

turn back to rain and it will peter out over the course of the

:13:01.:13:07.

afternoon. For much of the time, it will feel cold with a moderate

One viewer says he should be a politician as he can't give a

:13:30.:13:35.

straight answer to any question. Photographers are calling for a

:13:35.:13:38.

better understanding of the law after a Scunthorpe man was stopped

:13:38.:13:42.

from taking pictures in the town. Security guards at the Golden

:13:42.:13:45.

Wonder factory told him he was breaking the law. The confrontation

the attitude they have adopted. The photographer was standing on

what looked like a public street, where he is perfectly entitled to

:15:19.:15:25.

take photographs. The firm who employ guards on behalf of the

:15:25.:15:27.

factory say they have launched a full investigation into what

:15:27.:15:36.

happened. Today, management said sorry for the guards behaviour. We

:15:36.:15:39.

would like to offer the photographer our apology and invite

:15:39.:15:47.

him to meet with us and see the factory. The factory said that the

guards have no resigned and the welcome anyone taking pictures of

challenged whilst taking photographs including one instant

:16:00.:16:04.

on Cleethorpes beach. He is joining us now. Good evening.

:16:04.:16:09.

Why are people so sensitive? I do not know. I thought it was very

:16:09.:16:16.

funny. They do not have the power to stop anyone taking photographs

:16:16.:16:22.

and a public place of a public building or of anyone in that space.

from taking photographs. He tried to clarify this with parliament,

:16:42.:16:52.
:16:52.:16:54.

the new? There was new instructions issued. We also got confirmation

:16:54.:16:57.

from government and from the department that people were able to

:16:57.:17:02.

take any photographs they wanted and a public place at any time and

:17:02.:17:05.

that stop and search, which was being used against photographers,

:17:05.:17:11.

should not be used in that kind of scenario. This did not cover... You

:17:11.:17:15.

notice on the film, there were no police involved. This did not cover

:17:15.:17:21.

police. It was security guards who were poorly trained and did not

:17:21.:17:27.

know what the law was. Do they need more training and what you can

:17:27.:17:34.

cannot do? I think they do, yes. People have a right to take

:17:34.:17:39.

photographs and the need to be told this. All it takes is a bit of

:17:39.:17:43.

common sense, unfortunately. They lost their temper and I became very

:17:43.:17:50.

funny. -- and they became very funny. The whole business was very

:17:50.:17:59.

comic. It was not dangerous. Thank you. Exploding crisps!

:17:59.:18:03.

Do you have any views, if you're a photographer? Have you had any

:18:03.:18:12.

similar experiences? There is the number. Small arts and

:18:12.:18:15.

entertainment venues in Easter Yorkshire are thriving despite the

:18:15.:18:19.

economic downturn. The Arts Council has announced that

:18:19.:18:25.

it will support this arts centre for the next three years.

:18:25.:18:29.

Pocklington Arts Centre has some poor reported its most successful

:18:29.:18:37.

season ever. -- has reported. Lincoln City football club has

:18:37.:18:42.

received amp cash injection of �500,000 which could prove crucial

:18:42.:18:44.

to the survival of the football club.

:18:44.:18:52.

There has this money come from? It is coming from a local businessman

:18:52.:18:55.

and the Lincoln Court. They're talking about moving to a new

:18:55.:19:01.

ground. That has raised its head again today. First, this financial

:19:01.:19:07.

injection which is staving off an imminent crisis. Behind the scenes

:19:07.:19:11.

at Lincoln City, they scoured the world for much needed investment.

�1 million. Without this injection, players may not have been paid last

:19:24.:19:31.

February are March. In October of last year, we put his plan together

:19:31.:19:37.

in the event that no other investment would come in. They drew

:19:37.:19:45.

3-3 with Gateshead on Saturday. Lincoln City are just five points

:19:45.:19:49.

above the relegation zone and supporters have welcomed a

:19:49.:19:53.

stability that comes with new investment. It has come from local

:19:53.:19:57.

companies were well respected, the chairman, who is a local person as

:19:58.:20:01.

well and it is appropriate and proper investment into the football

:20:01.:20:05.

club and we believe it is proper and right that we accepted. They

:20:05.:20:09.

have been playing in the shadow of the cathedral for 117 years but

:20:09.:20:13.

they cannot provide the extra income they need to generate. It is

:20:13.:20:18.

once again seriously considering moving from its spiritual home. It

:20:18.:20:22.

is not fit for purpose. I would hope that, within four years, we

:20:22.:20:27.

are perhaps on our way to getting a new football ground. Or only a

:20:27.:20:31.

small amount of cash is available to strengthen the team and a

:20:31.:20:35.

transfer window. It is hoped the financial injection will help

:20:35.:20:42.

secure a brighter future. Is it realistic to suggest that they will

:20:42.:20:47.

move away from their current form? It might seem a bit far-fetched,

:20:47.:20:51.

when they have just had a new rescue plan instigated, but it is

:20:51.:20:57.

on the agenda again. The time frame is around four or five years,

:20:57.:21:00.

according to be chairman. The fans are very attached to the ground but

:21:00.:21:04.

a move is on the agenda and it could be a bright future for

Lincoln City of C. Hull City are up to 5th in the Championship after a

:21:09.:21:14.

narrow win over their promotion rivals.

:21:14.:21:18.

With news of that and how could Hull Kingston Rovers are counting

:21:18.:21:25.

the cost of their victory over Hull FC, here we are. The clash at

:21:25.:21:32.

Reading represented at challenge for Hull City. The match was

:21:32.:21:41.

decided by a single goal. I felt it was a legitimate goal, a good run

:21:41.:21:47.

from Robbie Brady. He had the foresight to leave the ball. I

:21:47.:21:53.

would have been agreed it had been given offside. -- if it had been

:21:53.:21:57.

given offside. Taking the lead with another one of those excellent

:21:57.:22:04.

rides. Scunthorpe been Scunthorpe could not hold on. This is the 13th

:22:04.:22:12.

try of the season. -- 13th draw. In rugby league, this incident in the

:22:13.:22:18.

second half saw a player carried off with a broken leg.

:22:18.:22:23.

Earlier, the captain had limped out of the game as Hull Kingston Rovers

:22:23.:22:29.

ran in seven tries to beat Hull City. They're doing well, yes. It

:22:29.:22:33.

is only the first game, you cannot read much into that. It is only a

:22:33.:22:43.
:22:43.:22:48.

friendly. We paid �15 and it was Grimsby Town are on course for the
