Good evening. The headlines: A six year-old boy and his grandmother


drown in a Lincolnshire duck pond. It may be one of these cases where


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


treating it as a tragic accident. He claims that school Jubilee


celebrations could be illegal as teachers call for lessons about


alternatives to the Queen. Grimsby celebrates the return of


its adopted warship and crew. Catching the bad books before they


bite. The new technology to kill unwelcome visitors.


And it is going to turn colder through the weekend. There is frost


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


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


village pond in Lincolnshire. Police began a search yesterday


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


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


this stage? In the last 24 hours, this


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


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


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


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


waters. This remote country late in the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


police are offering whatever support they can to family members,


both in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Monday at the earliest, but officers offering comfort to all


the families involved. In a moment, the father from


Gainsborough who has had 40 operations in his 13 year fight


against cancer. Some more news. Police and hospital


chiefs say they cannot predict how long they will be investigation


allegations that a baby was injured at Scunthorpe General Hospital.


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


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


restrain children when treating them.


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


East Lincolnshire Council. Anglian Water, which supplies homes


in Lincolnshire, is warning that Rutland Reservoir could begin to


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


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


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


East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to be talked about an alternative to


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


law by promoting the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Republican


campaigners and some teachers say that children are being


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


contains flash photography. Here in the East Riding village of


Everingham, they are preparing for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.


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


it is important that her granddaughter understand the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


think children should be indoctrinated to think that is OK.


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


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


unlawful because it presents celebrations of the Queen's Diamond


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


not be jumping on the Royal bandwagon and celebrating the


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


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


stop children being indoctrinated, not from joining in a national


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


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


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


abuse and institutions are presented it in schools in a


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


something that everybody is celebrating, they are excluding all


other possibilities by doing that. There certainly marginalising those


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


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


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


you some letters we have had. These Republicans do not take into


consideration the amount of money that the monarchy brings into the


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


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


reinforce his wife -- point. There are a variety of views on this


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


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


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


for Republic, and we will be staging protests on the weekend


itself at the Thames pageant. We have people coming from all low-


fare the country because we are opposing the idea that we all as a


country should be celebrating an undemocratic institution. Good to


have you on the programme. Thank you. Is it wrong to encourage


schoolchildren to celebrate the Jubilee, or our critics missing the


Jubilee, or our critics missing the point? What you think? You can e-

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


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


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


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


inspirational for others. For all Chris Underwood-Frost,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


things he cares about in his community is incredible.


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


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


something about his physiology, something about his mental attitude.


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


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


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


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


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


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

turn out to be a mine or a shopping trolley! This will be then

it reaches around 60 degrees Celsius, it is hot enough to kill

His recent exhibition has been a sell-out, and today work by David


Hockney was sold by almost �1.4 million. More than 100 etchings and


drawings went under the hammer at Christie's in London as his work


continues to put East Yorkshire on the National Mac.


He is the UK's most influential artist and almost �1.4 million was


raised in an auction today. This picture Los Angeles was the most


expensive at around �121,000. These pictures may not be his most famous,


but it seems everyone wants a piece of this Yorkshire artist. He is


very influential. His art is very hard to pigeonhole because he has


tried his hand at pretty much everything. His life in America


influenced much of today's work, but more recently it has been the


East Yorkshire landscape that has been his source of interest --


source of inspiration. It is a landscape that is but a very


particular, very characteristic. -- very particular. It there is


something very beautiful about the place. He is attracted to it


because it has never been painted before. David Hockney may now be a


household name, but you tucked away in this Art Gallery in Hull we can


see a glimpse into his earlier work. This painting was done when he was


a student. On the bottom it faintly says, do not give up yet. Advice


thousands of art lovers are now very glad he took. He is one of our


few artists that are living in Britain now that are almost


household names. People do seem to respond to his work and be


interested in it. In the art world today, 1.4 million is the small fry.


This Cezanne was bought for 158 million. But given his ever


increasing popularity, his features sales might also be as record-


breaking. The continued success of David


Hockney. A quick recap.
