on Saturday night. I have a Good evening. A six year-old boy

:01:05.:01:09.

and his 70-year-old grandmother have been discovered dead in a

:01:09.:01:14.

village pond in Lincolnshire. Police began a search yesterday

:01:14.:01:18.

evening when the boy's mother reported him missing. It happened

:01:18.:01:25.

in the hamlet of Holywell near Bourne. What more do we know at

:01:25.:01:31.

this stage? In the last 24 hours, this

:01:31.:01:35.

picturesque corner of Lincolnshire, a mile or so from Castle Bytham,

:01:35.:01:42.

has been the subject of a major RAF search with the aid of underwater

:01:42.:01:48.

dive teams. The bodies were found last night and early this morning.

:01:48.:01:52.

Police say they may never know how the pair ended up in these freezing

:01:52.:01:55.

waters. This remote country late in the

:01:55.:02:00.

village of Holywell has become the scene of a terrible family tragedy.

:02:00.:02:03.

The six year-old boy came here some time yesterday with his grandmother

:02:03.:02:08.

to feed the ducks. Somehow, and we may never know precisely how, they

:02:08.:02:13.

ended up in these freezing waters. It may be one of these cases where

:02:13.:02:20.

we never fully establish how this accident happened, but we are

:02:20.:02:25.

treating it as a tragic accident. If anyone was in the Holywell area

:02:25.:02:29.

who may have seen the grandmother and her grandson in this location,

:02:29.:02:33.

please come forward. The search began when the boy failed to turn

:02:33.:02:38.

up at his mother's home. The grandmother lived in Castle Bytham,

:02:38.:02:42.

just one mile from the lake. It is a complete shock. You do not expect

:02:42.:02:47.

anything like that to happen around here. It is a tragedy for somebody

:02:47.:02:50.

to being a local area and for something so happily -- horrible to

:02:50.:02:59.

happen to him. My condolences to the family that is left behind.

:02:59.:03:02.

police are offering whatever support they can to family members,

:03:02.:03:06.

both in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire.

:03:06.:03:13.

It does look like the police will never know what actually happened?

:03:13.:03:17.

That's right. They only really know a very rough chronology of what

:03:18.:03:22.

happened. They are assuming that this boy was on his way home to

:03:22.:03:26.

Leicestershire with his grandmother to go back to his mother's house

:03:26.:03:30.

after half term. We do not know when they were here, and the police

:03:30.:03:35.

are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the ground mother's car

:03:35.:03:40.

near this lake to come forward. There is a post mortem examination

:03:40.:03:44.

taking place on the boy and his grandmother tonight. The police are

:03:44.:03:48.

not expected to release their names or any details about them until

:03:48.:03:53.

Monday at the earliest, but officers offering comfort to all

:03:53.:04:00.

the families involved. In a moment, the father from

:04:00.:04:04.

Gainsborough who has had 40 operations in his 13 year fight

:04:04.:04:10.

against cancer. Some more news. Police and hospital

:04:10.:04:13.

chiefs say they cannot predict how long they will be investigation

:04:14.:04:20.

allegations that a baby was injured at Scunthorpe General Hospital.

:04:20.:04:24.

Five staff from the hospital have been suspended. The Royal College

:04:24.:04:31.

of Nursing says it expects all staff were being trained in how to

:04:31.:04:33.

restrain children when treating them.

:04:34.:04:43.

There have been put it cuts -- budget cuts of �43 million at North

:04:43.:04:47.

East Lincolnshire Council. Anglian Water, which supplies homes

:04:47.:04:51.

in Lincolnshire, is warning that Rutland Reservoir could begin to

:04:51.:04:57.

fall beyond manageable levels. The company says it has position --

:04:57.:05:00.

permission to these levels by taking water from a nearby river,

:05:00.:05:04.

but that might not be enough. There are calls for children in

:05:04.:05:08.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to be talked about an alternative to

:05:08.:05:11.

the monarchy, following claims that some schools could be breaking the

:05:11.:05:16.

law by promoting the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Republican

:05:16.:05:19.

campaigners and some teachers say that children are being

:05:19.:05:25.

indoctrinated into supporting the royal family. His -- this report

:05:26.:05:30.

contains flash photography. Here in the East Riding village of

:05:30.:05:36.

Everingham, they are preparing for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

:05:36.:05:43.

This is a special year this year, isn't it? Yes. Gren Halton believes

:05:43.:05:46.

it is important that her granddaughter understand the

:05:46.:05:50.

relevance of this year's events. They are tomorrow's generation, and

:05:50.:05:54.

they should be aware of what a great job she does for us and that

:05:54.:05:59.

she is important. We should celebrates all these things. It is

:05:59.:06:06.

part of our heritage. Not everyone is getting into the party spirit. A

:06:06.:06:11.

group calling itself Republic says it is organising a series of anti-

:06:11.:06:15.

monarchy protests in the run-up to the Diamond Jubilee. We do not

:06:15.:06:19.

think that the Jubilee is something to celebrate. If you ask yourself

:06:20.:06:23.

what the Queen has done to achieve a position and how she has managed

:06:23.:06:29.

to stay in that position, it is not a democratic process. We do not

:06:29.:06:32.

think children should be indoctrinated to think that is OK.

:06:32.:06:37.

In particular, and the monarchists believe that the school's cooking

:06:37.:06:46.

competition launched by the Duchess of Cornwall could be on lawful --

:06:46.:06:50.

unlawful because it presents celebrations of the Queen's Diamond

:06:50.:06:54.

Jubilee. It is not done it in an informed way. You do not find out

:06:54.:06:59.

about what the monarchy is, or why we have a monarchy. Despite

:06:59.:07:03.

opposition from some, there appears to be no shortage of people ready

:07:03.:07:12.

to dig out the bunting to celebrate the Queen's 60 years on the throne.

:07:12.:07:16.

I am joined by Graham Smith from the anti- monarchy campaign group

:07:16.:07:21.

Republic. Good evening. Good evening. Is it is an over-reaction

:07:21.:07:26.

to what will be a great weekend of celebrations and parties? No. It is

:07:26.:07:29.

not a great weekend for the whole country, it is not a national

:07:29.:07:33.

celebration, it is a royal celebration. A quarter of the

:07:34.:07:38.

population in polls at the time of last year's wedding said we would

:07:38.:07:41.

be better off without the royal family. More people were not

:07:41.:07:45.

interested in the wedding and are not interested in the Jubilee. We

:07:45.:07:55.
:07:55.:07:55.

are seeing reduce numbers of street parties and events. There are a

:07:55.:08:03.

wind -- wide range of opinions around this issue. Schools should

:08:03.:08:07.

not be jumping on the Royal bandwagon and celebrating the

:08:07.:08:12.

monarchy. They should be remaining balance and impartial. But the

:08:12.:08:15.

Department of Education told us today that the law is designed to

:08:15.:08:19.

stop children being indoctrinated, not from joining in a national

:08:19.:08:23.

celebration. What is your concern? As I said, it is not a national

:08:23.:08:27.

celebration. It is not for the Department of Education to choose

:08:27.:08:35.

when the law is applied. The law is there to ensure that political

:08:35.:08:38.

abuse and institutions are presented it in schools in a

:08:38.:08:41.

balanced way. If they simply put across the monarchy as being

:08:41.:08:46.

something that everybody is celebrating, they are excluding all

:08:46.:08:50.

other possibilities by doing that. There certainly marginalising those

:08:50.:08:54.

possibilities, and that is not appropriate. Last year, we were

:08:54.:08:59.

inundated by letters and e-mails from parents concerned that their

:08:59.:09:03.

children were being forced to take part in celebrations. Let me read

:09:03.:09:07.

:09:07.:09:10.

consideration the amount of money that the monarchy brings into the

:09:10.:09:14.

country. In other one says that you're short-sighted not to see how

:09:14.:09:19.

valuable the Queen is. Your views are not popular. A handful Alf --

of e-mails and letters to your studio does not change, but rather

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:09:40.

issue. This is the whole point of the law, to ensure that balance is

:09:40.:09:44.

maintained in our schools. A final question, will you be working on

:09:44.:09:48.

the bank holidays over the Diamond Jubilee? I will be, because I work

:09:59.:10:05.

country should be celebrating an undemocratic institution. Good to

:10:54.:10:58.

He has had cancer six times and has had 40 operations to fight the

:10:58.:11:02.

disease. Chris Underwood-Frost from Lincolnshire is still going strong.

:11:02.:11:06.

The father of one from Gainsborough has said his son has been an

:11:06.:11:13.

inspiration in his fight for cancer. He hopes his story will be

:11:13.:11:16.

inspirational for others. For all Chris Underwood-Frost,

:11:16.:11:21.

medication is part of everyday life. He has to inject himself with the

:11:21.:11:28.

drug drug mac to keep his cancer at bay. Incredible, given that's he

:11:28.:11:37.

was given only 18 months to live 13 years ago. Moving forward, I have

:11:37.:11:41.

had its further cancer and cancer treatment over the years. By the

:11:41.:11:45.

third time, I was getting used to the fact that I was getting --

:11:45.:11:50.

having to go to Hull every few weeks. Chris was diagnosed with

:11:50.:11:53.

weeks. Chris was diagnosed with skin cancer in 1999. A year later,

:11:53.:11:59.

scans revealed lymphoma. In 2006, he discovered a lump on his chest,

:11:59.:12:03.

and so then he had lung cancer. and so then he had lung cancer.

:12:03.:12:05.

Last year, he had bladder cancer, and in December, another lump was

:12:05.:12:10.

found there. Despite that, he has carried on working as a councillor,

:12:10.:12:14.

and he is running for the job of Lincolnshire's Police Commission.

:12:14.:12:19.

He is one of the most vocal on the county council, and he is never shy

:12:19.:12:24.

in coming forward. To be like that and bees are so vociferous about

:12:24.:12:29.

things he cares about in his community is incredible.

:12:29.:12:34.

doctors at Castle Hill Hospital in Hull are also astounded. It is

:12:34.:12:37.

quite an amazing story. There is something about the melanoma,

:12:38.:12:42.

something about his physiology, something about his mental attitude.

:12:42.:12:48.

He has been very positive from the word go. But Chris says his son Max

:12:48.:12:53.

has been vital in fighting his cancer. Max, my beautiful son, is

:12:53.:12:58.

the person who keeps me going. He is the first love of my life. I do

:12:58.:13:02.

not want to upset anyone out there by saying is, but I live with

:13:02.:13:07.

cancer. I refuse to die of cancer. That is it promisee is determined

:13:07.:13:13.

to keep, even if he has to take life one step at a time.

:13:13.:13:23.

An amazing story. Still to come: So Alyn home.

bring us a fair amount of sunshine for the afternoon. Today, you can

see on the satellite picture that the cloud was thickening up from

will keep mostly cloudy skies tonight. By the end of the night,

:15:17.:15:21.

from a south-westerly to an north- westerly direction. It will feel

:15:21.:15:25.

cooler in the afternoon. Our maximum temperatures will be around

:15:25.:15:30.

nine degrees. Once the sun comes out, temperatures will start to

:15:30.:15:35.

drop. Clear skies overnight into Sunday, this means we will have a

frost. Temperatures below zero. Try and find on Sunday. Only around
