Good evening. The BBC understands that four nurses and a health care

:01:02.:01:06.

support worker have been suspended from the children's ward at the

:01:06.:01:10.

Scunthorpe General Hospital. It is alleged that a baby was restrained

:01:10.:01:15.

and injured while being treated on the Disney Ward. When did this

:01:16.:01:22.

happen? We understand that this incident occurred within the last

:01:22.:01:26.

few weeks and that it was on the Disney Ward, here at Scunthorpe

:01:26.:01:31.

General Hospital, which is the children's ward. We understand that

:01:31.:01:38.

an allegation was made that a baby was restrained and injured, and

:01:38.:01:43.

that was why it was being treated on the ward. We understand that it

:01:43.:01:48.

is about a year old and that five staff have since been suspended.

:01:48.:01:56.

What are the hospital and police saying tonight? The Hospitals Trust

:01:56.:02:01.

has confirmed to us that it is investigating an incident. My head

:02:01.:02:05.

of governance told us that the family is being kept fully informed.

:02:05.:02:10.

I have also spoken to Humberside Police. They said that a complaint

:02:10.:02:14.

is being investigated after an incident at a hospital. They said

:02:14.:02:19.

the investigation is in its early stages. What has been the reaction

:02:19.:02:25.

in the community? Patients and people who live in the area will be

:02:25.:02:31.

concerned to hear the news. In their last hour, we have spoken to

:02:31.:02:35.

beat Scunthorpe MP who has said he wants to reassure his constituents.

:02:35.:02:41.

We have to be as you do that a hospital has taken the steps that

:02:41.:02:46.

it has needed to take today in suspending these staff. It will

:02:46.:02:49.

ensure that safety and well-being is paramount and we need to be

:02:49.:02:56.

patient and debt matters take their course. -- let matters. The lead in

:02:56.:03:04.

the police or the trust could tell as a how long this investigations -

:03:04.:03:08.

- needed the police or the trust could tell us how long the

:03:08.:03:10.

investigation was going to take. They have said they will keep us

:03:10.:03:18.

fully conformed. -- informed. In a moment... Jobs at risk unless

:03:18.:03:24.

the government sheds more light on energy payments.

:03:24.:03:28.

British Telecom says it is one of the worst attacks on the bone at

:03:28.:03:33.

network by a metal thieves. More than half a mile of cable has been

:03:34.:03:37.

stolen near Beverley in East Yorkshire. Another mile has been

:03:37.:03:42.

damaged. It means hundreds of homes it may not get their phone lines

:03:42.:03:47.

and internet back for a breed as BT tries to find the net replacement

:03:47.:03:55.

cable. -- for a week. This is the disruption caused by a

:03:55.:04:02.

metal beads. They describe -- and they struck at night ripping up

:04:02.:04:05.

tons of telephone cables. It was sheer luck that this couple were

:04:05.:04:11.

home on Saturday night. They heard tapping on their window and it was

:04:11.:04:16.

their 92-year-old neighbour who had taken ill. She had to come out of

:04:16.:04:21.

her house because she did not have the phone. She needed help quite

:04:21.:04:26.

urgently. We needed to get her an ambulance. We don't have a

:04:26.:04:31.

particularly good mobile reception so it was very difficult to get

:04:31.:04:36.

hold of anyone to begin with. We couldn't get a signal. Nancy was

:04:36.:04:40.

too ill to talk to us today but like half of the village, she lost

:04:40.:04:46.

her telephone because it thieves stole two kilometres of cable from

:04:46.:04:51.

just outside the village. It is a massive job to repair and it is

:04:51.:04:56.

causing tailbacks surround the area. This particular area was a very

:04:56.:05:01.

severe incident and we lost two kilometres of cable, which was cut

:05:01.:05:08.

up to 15 -- cab at up to 15 locations. It has been a difficult

:05:08.:05:13.

task to get it online. Engineers have been working around the club.

:05:13.:05:18.

BT cable is distinguishable. Most merchants in the Humberside Police

:05:18.:05:22.

area have signed up to a code of conduct that forbids them from

:05:22.:05:28.

buying it. Someone somewhere is willing to pay. Almost a week

:05:28.:05:33.

without connection has made running a business difficult. Lots of

:05:33.:05:37.

people are affected. They have not got internet, they cannot contact

:05:37.:05:43.

their friends. It is cause big problems. We have got a cash

:05:43.:05:47.

machine that runs on a BT line and people have not been able to do --

:05:47.:05:54.

to use it. It could be Monday before repairs are complete which

:05:54.:05:58.

means, for some vulnerable pillagers, a baker and cut off and

:05:58.:06:07.

concerned. -- for some vulnerable villagers, a weekend cut off.

:06:07.:06:12.

Police said they are in a battle to protect phone networks. It is

:06:12.:06:15.

costing railway and phone companies millions of pounds a year and

:06:15.:06:20.

causing massive disruption to their customers. We report on the

:06:20.:06:24.

technology used to track the feed. From churches to cars, all of these

:06:24.:06:30.

are targets of metal thieves. There is a van, driven onto tracks near

:06:30.:06:35.

Hull, shows how far they will go to get their loot. Police have to be

:06:35.:06:40.

one step ahead. We have asked the Scrap Metal Dealers Act to sign up

:06:40.:06:45.

to a voluntary code. They ask for identification and install good

:06:45.:06:50.

quality CCTV. We have an information-sharing agreement

:06:50.:06:53.

whereby we release details of people convicted of metal theft and

:06:53.:06:57.

asked them not to trade with them. Thieves are turning to professional

:06:57.:07:04.

methods. This man helps repair phone cables but criminals have

:07:04.:07:08.

been known to pose as a work men and used massive winches to pull

:07:09.:07:14.

wires out of the ground. -- pose as work men. An alarm is triggered if

:07:14.:07:21.

a cable is stolen. We have put alliance into the Met work and use

:07:21.:07:29.

roving security patrols. We work very hard. We interrupted some

:07:29.:07:33.

attempted thefts during Christmas because of our security measures.

:07:33.:07:39.

The government is working on plans to combat theft including stopping

:07:39.:07:43.

cash payments for staff and getting more powers to close down rogue

:07:43.:07:49.

traders and for all dealers to be licensed.

:07:49.:07:54.

The police said they have helped to cut crime. Tagging technology and

:07:54.:07:58.

stop and search is also putting off. Until the price of metal drops the

:07:58.:08:02.

authorities are working hard to stay one step ahead.

:08:02.:08:08.

That is a story which will continue to follow.

:08:08.:08:13.

Unions at BAE Systems in Berra have criticised the Prime Minister after

:08:13.:08:17.

it was announced the sales of the company fell by 14% in the last

:08:17.:08:21.

year. Unite says the governor needs to work harder to bring defence

:08:21.:08:30.

contracts to the UK. -- the Government. 150 jobs are being lost.

:08:30.:08:32.

The Environment Secretary will meet water companies next week over

:08:32.:08:36.

fears of a worsening drought in Lincolnshire. There is concern over

:08:36.:08:45.

a hosepipe ban in eastern England 35 years. Anglian Water says it

:08:45.:08:47.

cannot rule out restricting supplies as early as the spring.

:08:47.:08:50.

If politicians in North East Lincolnshire are meeting tonight to

:08:50.:08:55.

discuss spending cuts. They are being asked to approve a budget

:08:55.:09:00.

reductions of �43 million over the next five years. Around 100 jobs at

:09:00.:09:03.

the council will be lost as part of the process.

:09:03.:09:08.

An MP has described the potential loss of 150 jobs at a solar panel

:09:08.:09:14.

company in Hull as a disgrace. She is blaming job cuts at Carrillion

:09:14.:09:17.

on the government because it is reducing the subsidy it gives to

:09:17.:09:23.

house owners may put -- he played solar panels on their roofs. -- who

:09:23.:09:29.

pet. In East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:09:29.:09:33.

around 4,000 homes have had them fitted. For those who can afford it,

:09:33.:09:39.

so will panels -- solar panels have become the greenway apparent in

:09:39.:09:44.

their homes while at the same time providing a sound investment. --

:09:44.:09:51.

the green way of Paris to their homes. They receive 43p for every

:09:51.:09:57.

can a lot of energy they create. It is being reduced to 21p this year.

:09:57.:10:01.

That is having an impact on the amount of business generated. The

:10:01.:10:07.

first big victim is Carrillion Energy, and the closure of their

:10:07.:10:12.

Hull office, which employs 150 people, was announced last night.

:10:12.:10:16.

They are a private sector company. There are jobs that we need in this

:10:16.:10:21.

city and they are going. This is on top of BAE and everything else.

:10:21.:10:25.

This is disappointing and worrying. Smart firms are being affected too.

:10:26.:10:30.

This man owns one of more than 40 solar panel businesses in hull

:10:30.:10:36.

alone. He has seen orders dropped by 95%. If I had known what I know

:10:37.:10:42.

that I would not have invested in it. It may still come good. We are

:10:42.:10:50.

still plugging away. At this moment in time it leaves a sour taste.

:10:50.:10:56.

Gordon had his solar panels fitted last year. He says with Paris about

:10:56.:11:05.

to be had, he thinks twice. -- with parrots about to be reduced by half.

:11:05.:11:10.

I think I would have to think long and hard whether it would be a

:11:10.:11:16.

beneficial move. Gillian says -- Karen Aim says its

:11:16.:11:23.

office may be closed by its office -- honest.

:11:23.:11:33.
:11:33.:11:36.

Joining me now, a solar panel specialist. 43p a Kello what Barrar

:11:36.:11:46.
:11:46.:11:46.

being paid to people, that was far too generous, wasn't it? 43 pence

:11:46.:11:56.

per kilowatt hour. They are reducing the tariff to 21p.

:11:56.:12:00.

government says this was my highest rate in the world. It made a lot of

:12:00.:12:05.

people very well off. That they want to spread the benefits which

:12:05.:12:10.

the 21p tariff. They can have twice as many customers benefiting from

:12:10.:12:14.

the reduced price. Hywel would you said the government has handled the

:12:14.:12:21.

situation? -- how well. Not very well at all. The feed in tariff has

:12:21.:12:24.

been a disaster. It was not structured correctly. There were a

:12:24.:12:28.

number of issues that came up relating to changes which had to be

:12:28.:12:34.

made. They are finally getting round to correcting this situation.

:12:34.:12:38.

A lot of people benefited because of the high tariffs in the meantime.

:12:38.:12:43.

Did too many firms jumped on the solar panel band widened? Will they

:12:43.:12:49.

struggle or her struggle to keep going as the uptake on solar panels

:12:49.:12:55.

dies? It was very good at the time but I think when they reflect that

:12:55.:12:59.

the price of materials has reduced and the price of installation has

:12:59.:13:03.

reduced, they should still be able to make their business worked on

:13:03.:13:08.

the 21p. Could we see the demise of the industry as this goes a long,

:13:08.:13:14.

if they persist in cutting the tariff? There is a consultation out

:13:14.:13:21.

at the manner which suggests that from July onwards, they will keep a

:13:21.:13:25.

track of how quickly so the prices are coming down and trying to marry

:13:25.:13:29.

the two together is you do not end up with excessive returns and you

:13:45.:13:55.
:13:55.:14:07.

We will have some of your thoughts before we finish the programme.

:14:08.:14:14.

Still ahead tonight: Heroes remembered.

:14:14.:14:18.

A Scunthorpe school pays tribute to fjord -- tribute to former pupils

:14:18.:14:21.

killed in action. And the bird who has chosen

:14:21.:14:29.

Lincolnshire over East Yorkshire as its winter home.

:14:29.:14:34.

Keep your pictures coming in if you have got one you are proud of.

:14:34.:14:44.
:14:44.:14:47.

Tonight's was taken by Rachel Angela said, I am glad to hear

:14:47.:14:52.

about the photo of Peter, but I am glad she did not show it!

:14:52.:14:55.

Once was enough. The end you very much for that! You

:14:55.:14:58.

will be repaid at a time of my choosing!

:14:58.:15:04.

It has been a nice day to day, but it was a bit wet for a time in the

:15:04.:15:08.

afternoon. Tomorrow will be similar. We will see rain later on. You can

:15:08.:15:18.
:15:18.:15:21.

see the reason why on the pressure Chad. -- a pressure chart. The

:15:21.:15:29.

:15:57.:16:04.

It will be a bright start with some spells of sunshine through the

:16:04.:16:08.

morning. The early afternoon will stay dry. As we head through the

:16:08.:16:11.

afternoon, there will be some outbreaks of rain for some of those.

:16:11.:16:18.

It will be light and patchy and I think we will see any increase in

:16:18.:16:22.

class. It will feel quite mild tomorrow. Temperatures will be into

:16:22.:16:29.

double figures. 10 degrees. It stays mild as we head into Saturday.

:16:29.:16:33.

In a frost-free start to their day. A band of heavy rain will push its

:16:33.:16:40.

way southwards during the day. It will feel cooler. On Sunday,

better when you would not say boo to a goose.

:16:57.:17:00.

Now, businesses in Bridlington have criticised the number of parking

:17:00.:17:05.

tickets given out by East job to's new traffic wardens. It is that

:17:05.:17:08.

they have handed out as many tickets in one month as the old

:17:08.:17:14.

police wardens gave out in a year. Traders say it is driving customers

:17:14.:17:20.

away. Bryan Hepworth is disabled and often relies on the goodwill of

:17:20.:17:23.

others to get out. On a recent visit to his optician in

:17:24.:17:28.

Bridlington Town Centre, that is not what he got. Instead, he was

:17:28.:17:32.

told by a traffic warden to move his car or get a ticket. I have

:17:32.:17:38.

always left my car there. Commonsense today, I was only a

:17:38.:17:44.

quarter of an hour. But they are a law unto themselves. The ease

:17:44.:17:47.

traffic wardens are new. East Riding of Yorkshire Council took

:17:47.:17:53.

over parking duties from Humberside Police in November with what they

:17:53.:17:56.

call civil enforcement officers. In that same month, these wardens

:17:56.:18:01.

issued more tickets than the police issued in a whole year. They police,

:18:01.:18:04.

because they knew they were giving up that service, run the service

:18:04.:18:08.

down and only had a few number of officers dealing with traffic

:18:08.:18:12.

warden duties. Those officers would be used for other police priorities

:18:12.:18:19.

as well. Although there is free parking available in the town

:18:19.:18:23.

centre, it is limited. As well as that, the time you can stay packed

:18:23.:18:28.

up for is not law. The shopkeepers I spoke to were concerned that the

:18:28.:18:33.

new wardens are bad for business. When business is struggling, a lot

:18:33.:18:37.

of business in the town would like to see more people coming into the

:18:37.:18:42.

town, but I think the new enforcement officers are being very

:18:42.:18:46.

keen and not giving people a chance. We do know what people being in

:18:46.:18:53.

trouble for parking. We want as many customers as we can get.

:18:53.:18:56.

Easter onwards, parking restrictions here in Bridlington

:18:56.:19:00.

will become even stricter. Along the seafront, weekend charges and

:19:00.:19:04.

now back in operation. With hundreds of thousands of visitors

:19:04.:19:09.

expected during the summer, it is likely there will be even more

:19:09.:19:16.

tickets handed out. That is another one you might have

:19:16.:19:23.

an opinion on. If you have, get in touch. Thank you to everyone who

:19:23.:19:27.

got in touch after last night's programme when we reported that

:19:27.:19:31.

senior Lincolnshire Police officers were urging the government to set a

:19:31.:19:41.
:19:41.:20:14.

The mother of a soldier who died in Afghanistan has welcomed a wall of

:20:14.:20:19.

tribute that has been put about her son's old school. Anthony Lombardi

:20:19.:20:22.

is one of three former pupils at Melior Community College in

:20:23.:20:27.

Scunthorpe who have died in military service. They are all on

all the soldiers who have died in Afghanistan, including Bryan and

:21:03.:21:09.

Anthony. Ben died in Iraq in 2007. Now, a memorial to all three men

:21:09.:21:13.

has been erected in their hometown of Scunthorpe. This wall does not

:21:13.:21:17.

just there to commemorate those associated with the college, but

:21:17.:21:26.

they are selling these panels to raise money for help their heroes.

:21:26.:21:29.

They are very important in helping ex-servicemen who have returned and

:21:29.:21:35.

may be injured or traumatised. They also helping the families in lots

:21:35.:21:40.

of different ways. We are very proud to be included. As long as

:21:40.:21:46.

the school is open, we know that the pupils passing through that

:21:46.:21:51.

school we hear of them. It will honour what they gave, what they

:21:51.:21:57.

were doing and what they did best. That was being part of the British

:21:57.:22:00.

Army. The wall will serve as a long lasting tribute to these three

:22:00.:22:03.

soldiers, but it is hoped the money raised will help many more families

:22:04.:22:13.

affected by war. School children in Hull came in

:22:13.:22:16.

from a surprise today when their lesson was taken by the captain of

:22:16.:22:20.

Hull City. Jack Hobbs lent his support to a new online revision

:22:20.:22:25.

programme which is backed by the Football Club. The former Spalding

Grammar School pupil certainly knew his stuff when it came to Mass. --

maths. This online learning programme

:22:38.:22:44.

features Hull City quite heavily. These pupils work saying, sir, to

Jack Hobbs, the captain of Hull City. I remember spending are was

:22:52.:22:56.

looking through books, trying to pick things up. Sometimes, when you

:22:56.:22:59.

get it through a different angle, it can help stick in your mind.

:22:59.:23:07.

That is the idea behind it. I hope it will catch on. Schools are

:23:07.:23:11.

always investigating new ways of engaging children in revision.

:23:11.:23:15.

Teachers who have reviewed this one say it is one of the best. It is

:23:15.:23:22.

something they can do at home. It will grab their interest. I think

:23:22.:23:27.

it is really good. You know how boring it can sometimes be a

:23:27.:23:35.

reading through books, so this put an edge on its. What do you like

:23:35.:23:43.

about it? All the learning that you can do. What did you like about it?

The penalty shoot-out. The learning programme is in place for children
