:00:09.:00:13.

children for the rest of his life. The East Yorkshire man the jailed

:00:14.:00:18.

for violent actions. He convinced that two women that he

:00:19.:00:22.

was a caring and loving partner when in actual fact he was harming

:00:22.:00:28.

their children. The region's first eating disorder

100,000 matchsticks can be turned into.

:00:47.:00:57.
:00:57.:01:00.

And join me in 15 minutes for the Good evening. A man from East

:01:00.:01:04.

Yorkshire who fractured the skull of one child and left another with

:01:04.:01:10.

permanent brain damage has been jailed for five years. Hull Crown

:01:11.:01:14.

Court found out that Adam Hewitt from Bridlington lost his temper

:01:14.:01:19.

and caused the injuries. Two social workers lost their jobs for failing

:01:19.:01:24.

to protect one of the children. The results of an investigation will be

:01:24.:01:30.

revealed next week. Adam Hewitt was described in court as being a

:01:30.:01:35.

danger to all young children. A low tolerance for their behaviour and

:01:35.:01:42.

an inability to control his temper. He was sentenced to five the years

:01:42.:01:46.

in prison at Hull Crown Court for causing serious injuries to two

:01:46.:01:56.

children, both are just one you all. The first attack took place in 2007.

:01:56.:02:03.

-- Botha were just one year old. He fractured at the baby's skull. He

:02:03.:02:08.

was not prosecuted for VAT and one a year later moved in with a new

:02:08.:02:16.

partner. He then was responsible for a more serious assault on her

:02:16.:02:21.

baby. The child suffered severe brain damage, broken ribs, and a

:02:21.:02:26.

broken leg. The police officer in charge of the investigation said

:02:26.:02:31.

significant force had been used and leave -- and it left the kind of

:02:31.:02:34.

injuries consistent with a car accident.

:02:34.:02:39.

He convinced that these women he was a caring and loving partner. In

:02:39.:02:44.

fact he went on to harm the children. And he did so with no

:02:44.:02:49.

witnesses and nobody there to defend the children.

:02:49.:02:54.

An inquiry has already seen two social workers lose their jobs. It

:02:54.:03:00.

is now the subject of a serious case review. The finding of the

:03:00.:03:04.

children's board will be released next week. Today a council

:03:04.:03:08.

spokesperson welcomed the sentence and said the protection of children

:03:08.:03:13.

in East Yorkshire remained their priority. The investigating officer

:03:13.:03:16.

believes that Adam Hewitt will remain at danger to young people

:03:16.:03:20.

for the rest of his life. The children year attacked meanwhile

:03:20.:03:25.

have been removed from their mothers. One is in the care of the

:03:25.:03:31.

local authority. Coming up, the Speaker of the House

:03:31.:03:37.

encourages young people to take more of an interest in politics.

:03:37.:03:42.

The family of an elderly woman who died after being left outside a

:03:42.:03:45.

care home and freezing temperatures say that failings at the home have

:03:45.:03:51.

been exposed. 84-year-old Dorothy Spicer from Market Deeping was

:03:51.:03:57.

living at the warm and Stanford when she died in November 2009. --

:03:57.:04:05.

living at the home. Our reporter is in Stamford. What is the background

:04:05.:04:12.

to the case? You can see the care home behind me.

:04:12.:04:17.

This is where in November 2009 Dorothy Spicer, and 84-year-old

:04:17.:04:22.

with Alzheimer's, was somehow allowed to remain outside all night

:04:22.:04:28.

in freezing temperatures. She died of pneumonia. The coroner said the

example, a door alarm what apparently went off but it is not

:04:36.:04:44.

clear if staff checked to was outside or undertook a head count.

:04:44.:04:49.

What has been the family's reaction?

:04:49.:04:52.

They have been waiting for two years to find out exactly what

:04:52.:04:55.

happened and today the totter said that she was happy the truth was

:04:56.:05:05.
:05:06.:05:06.

finally out there. -- the daughter. We listened to three harrowing days

:05:06.:05:11.

at an inquest. There are no words to express how I feel about the

:05:11.:05:15.

home and the people that allowed this to go on. That allowed that

:05:15.:05:21.

night to happen. A catalogue of errors.

:05:21.:05:28.

What has the Care Homes said? They're -- be released the

:05:28.:05:38.
:05:38.:05:44.

The family say that they now want to draw a line under these

:05:44.:05:47.

distressing events and they are happy now in the knowledge that

:05:47.:05:57.
:05:57.:05:59.

their perseverance should prevent a 600 jobs could be lost from North

Lincolnshire Council over the next few years. The Conservative

:06:02.:06:07.

controlled authority has now agreed its budget plans. It is hoped that

:06:07.:06:13.

many posts will disappear through natural wastage.

:06:24.:06:31.

already been cut. Just days after an alleged brawl

:06:31.:06:35.

between MPs in the House of Commons bar a young people have been told

:06:35.:06:40.

that they should take more interest in politics. That is according to

:06:40.:06:44.

John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons, talking to

:06:44.:06:47.

students at Hull University and calling on politicians to work

:06:48.:06:55.

harder to improve their reputation. The Speaker speaks out. John Bercow

:06:55.:07:01.

came to Hull as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the

:07:01.:07:04.

University's politics and International Studies Department.

:07:04.:07:10.

Many of the students take a keen interest in politics. The speaker

:07:10.:07:14.

feels that what happens at Westminster is not seen as relevant

:07:14.:07:20.

to many other young people. My message to these youngsters as,

:07:20.:07:26.

OK, even if it does not fascinate you, let me try to convention. Let

:07:26.:07:31.

me try to engage you can win you over to the merits of a voting.

:07:31.:07:39.

It is estimated that 44% of 18 year olds voted compared with 65% of the

:07:39.:07:43.

general population at the most recent election. I have been out on

:07:43.:07:49.

the streets with pictures of two prominent local politicians. Alan

:07:49.:07:56.

Johnson and David Davis. Do you know who these men are?

:07:56.:08:03.

I don't have a clue. Have I guess.

:08:03.:08:13.

Is his name Richard? He is the President of the country.

:08:13.:08:21.

Not quite, at no. Alan Sugar?

:08:21.:08:28.

No, Alan Johnson. Oh, I have met him before!

:08:28.:08:33.

This follows news of a brawl between two politicians in the

:08:33.:08:39.

House of Commons bar. We do not do ourselves any favours

:08:39.:08:45.

with excessive, noisy, apparently disrespectful comments. We have to

:08:45.:08:52.

move away from that. So, a plea from the Speaker for MPs

:08:52.:09:00.

to set a better example. What do you think? Let me know. You

:09:00.:09:10.
:09:10.:09:23.

can contact us using the details on The Sunday politics is back this

:09:23.:09:27.

weekend, looking at a deal that Lincolnshire police have just

:09:27.:09:30.

signed for the first of a privately owned police station in the United

:09:30.:09:40.

Kingdom. BBC One, made day, Sunday. The Pilgrim Hospital in Boston is

:09:40.:09:44.

reviewing the supervision of junior doctors after concerns were raised

:09:44.:09:49.

by staff. Junior doctors claim they do not get enough support Pike --

:09:49.:09:53.

from consultants. The hospital's trust says it will seek reassurance

:09:53.:09:57.

that the learning environment is effective.

:09:57.:10:01.

A women from Cleethorpes who suffer from an eating disorder says that a

:10:02.:10:05.

new unit open today will help hundreds like her. The centre is

:10:05.:10:09.

the only one of its kind in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and is

:10:09.:10:14.

designed specifically for people with eating disorders. Our reporter

:10:14.:10:19.

has been speaking to Kate Thomson, who once weighed less than a for

:10:19.:10:25.

stone and knows how important a treatment centre like this. She was

:10:25.:10:29.

just 11 years old when she became obsessed with what she was eating.

:10:29.:10:32.

Kate was later diagnosed with an eating disorder and at one point

:10:32.:10:36.

her weight plummeted to a life threatening level.

:10:36.:10:43.

I could not allow myself any other happiness. It is upsetting. You do

:10:43.:10:50.

not allow yourself any pleasure at whatsoever. I dropped to three

:10:50.:10:56.

stones �10. My head was heavier than my body, I could not lift my

:10:56.:11:02.

head. A new centre open that the Diana

:11:02.:11:06.

Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby today. It is estimated that

:11:06.:11:10.

14,000 people in the region have eating disorders and many are

:11:10.:11:17.

already lining up to use the centre. I wanted people to walk in without

:11:17.:11:23.

thinking, oh, I am in a hospital. We want them to come in and say,

:11:23.:11:30.

wow, this looks lovely. This is one of the five bedrooms

:11:30.:11:38.

designed to help people recover. But in every room you step into

:11:38.:11:43.

there are quotes on the wall. The idea is to give people help. -- to

:11:44.:11:52.

give people hope. Support groups are behind the move.

:11:52.:11:56.

Young people are developing the condition at an early age. Some as

:11:56.:12:00.

young as eight or nine. It is frightening.

:12:00.:12:07.

The Cape is now well on the road to recovery.

:12:07.:12:13.

-- Kate. I am just trying to gradually get

:12:13.:12:20.

it back more, and just smile more. She just had -- she had to travel

:12:20.:12:24.

to Leeds for treatment but is thrilled that others can get it in

me going! The headline for the next 24 hours

:13:45.:13:49.

is a fine one with quite a bit of sunshine and it looks as if we are

:13:49.:13:53.

in for a nice weekend right across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and

:13:53.:13:57.

North Norfolk with high pressure coming in from the south so it

:13:58.:14:05.

looks very pleasant. Quite cool at night with a widespread ground fast.

:14:05.:14:09.

There's the cold front which is taking away the milder air behind

:14:09.:14:14.

it. It is cooler, fresher, not particularly cold but we are still

:14:14.:14:18.

in February so it means a touch of frost for some. A fairly clear

:14:18.:14:27.

evening apart are part of the world. On the whole, it is dry, clear

:14:27.:14:33.

periods with temperatures down to one degrees. The summarise in the

:14:33.:14:43.
:14:43.:14:45.

morning at 7:00am. We're off to a bright start in the morning. Quite

:14:45.:14:51.

cool but there should be a fair amount sunshine around. Dry and

:14:51.:14:55.

bright. Some patchy cloud but there will be a decent amount of sunshine.

:14:55.:14:59.

The breeze, white and moderate. Temperatures are still above

:14:59.:15:03.

average. It will feel cooler than today at these levels are not to be

snapped up for February, nine or ten degrees. A touch of frost again

:15:09.:15:15.

on Saturday night. Sunday looks fine but Monday, a bit damp and

:15:15.:15:18.

dreary and there were back into the very mild weather for Tuesday and

:15:18.:15:28.
:15:28.:15:30.

Wednesday. Chris says, can we have a mention

:15:30.:15:35.

for our society? He is chairperson of the poll huts and appreciation

:15:35.:15:45.
:15:45.:15:47.

She's a teenager from Lincolnshire but somehow she walked into a bank

:15:47.:15:50.

and convince them that she was the model Katie Price, stealing

:15:50.:15:53.

thousands of pounds from her account. A court heard that 18

:15:53.:15:56.

year-old Kerry Marshall from Sleaford had developed a dangerous

:15:56.:15:58.

obsession with the reality TV star before buying expensive jewellery

:15:58.:16:05.

and a sports car in her name. This report contains some flash

:16:05.:16:10.

photography. Dressed like the model she is

:16:10.:16:13.

obsessed with, Kerry Marshall hid her face from cameras as she left

:16:13.:16:18.

Lincoln Crown Court. The 18 year- old had admitted six charges of

:16:18.:16:25.

fraud after trying to empty Katie Price's bank account of �25,000.

:16:25.:16:29.

The court heard Kerry Marshall had been born a man. After she began

:16:29.:16:32.

dressing as a woman, she became obsessed with reality TV star Katie

:16:32.:16:38.

Price. She even was arrested for posing as a security guard and

:16:38.:16:43.

conning in her way into the star's home. After that, Kerry Marshall

:16:43.:16:50.

somehow got hold of Katie Price's bank details. She pretended to be

:16:50.:16:53.

the model and asked the HSBC to send her a replacement bank card.

:16:53.:16:57.

Then she went on a spending spree. Marshall withdrew �1,000. Then

:16:58.:17:04.

bought a �600 bracelet, a �9000 sports car and spent �400 online.

:17:04.:17:07.

Then she took another �1500 before failing to move money to her own

:17:07.:17:13.

account. The deception was uncovered when Katie Price's own

:17:13.:17:18.

bank card stop working. The court was told the model was extremely

:17:18.:17:23.

upset. The judge told Marshall it almost beggars belief. The public

:17:23.:17:28.

would be completely shocked at how easy it was to be Miss Price. The

:17:28.:17:30.

teenager was given a two-year supervision and community order and

:17:30.:17:38.

told never to approach Katie Price ever again.

:17:38.:17:41.

A little earlier I spoke to Neil Munro who is a fraud expert who

:17:41.:17:49.

says in many ways, this is a typical fraud. What has happened

:17:49.:17:53.

here is a case of somebody has got hold of information about Katie

:17:53.:17:57.

Price, I'm not too certain where that has come from, maybe credit

:17:57.:18:06.

card details that were obtained. They will then work that

:18:06.:18:09.

information to add other information to then go and do

:18:09.:18:14.

exactly what this lady did. You say that but walking into a bank with a

:18:14.:18:17.

blonde wig and sunglasses saying your Katie Price, as the judge says,

:18:17.:18:25.

it almost beggars belief. Yes, obviously there was an attempt to

:18:25.:18:29.

look like Katie Price but of course what banks are doing these days is

:18:29.:18:33.

looking at information about the individual and I suppose if that

:18:33.:18:38.

individual looked like Katie Price and presented enough facts about

:18:38.:18:42.

Katie Price that the bank thought were genuine and valid, I suppose

:18:42.:18:48.

they probably would move forward on that basis. If someone cannot

:18:48.:18:55.

impersonate one of the country's most famous celebrities, this can

:18:55.:18:58.

happen to anyone? This is an obvious case but it does happen

:18:58.:19:08.

more and more. This account to Dover, as it is told, is one of the

:19:08.:19:12.

fastest growing areas of fraud because getting a new credit is

:19:12.:19:15.

difficult for genuine people so it is even more difficult for

:19:16.:19:22.

fraudsters so they are now attacking a current tax -- current

:19:22.:19:28.

accounts. What can the rest of us do to make sure that somebody else

:19:28.:19:33.

doesn't become last and get our money? The first thing is to

:19:33.:19:38.

recognise information about you is worth more than the gold credit

:19:38.:19:42.

cards to a for Ulster. So, look after it, make sure you only give

:19:42.:19:45.

it out when you need to would also make sure you are checking

:19:45.:19:49.

everything you've got on a regular basis, checking back accounts

:19:49.:19:53.

regularly to make sure of the payments are going out and are

:19:53.:19:57.

genuine and Schneider Show that you check your credit history on a

:19:58.:20:04.

regular basis as well so you going to as many sources as possible to

:20:04.:20:14.
:20:14.:20:18.

identify potential activities so you can stop it as soon as possible.

:20:18.:20:22.

If you have a story for us, contact us. We had a really mixed response

:20:22.:20:26.

from you after our story about the Cat Zero project based in Hull.

:20:26.:20:29.

Launched three years ago, it was hailed as a new way of getting

:20:29.:20:32.

young people into jobs, education or training. One of its most

:20:32.:20:33.

controversial aspects involved spending �500,000 of taxpayers'

:20:33.:20:36.

money on a yacht, training young people to sail. But managers behind

:20:36.:20:40.

the scheme says it has been a huge success, saving millions in the

:20:40.:20:50.
:20:50.:21:25.

One of Hull FC's top stars has been passing on his expertise to

:21:25.:21:29.

children in the city. England player Tom Briscoe was at Hull's

:21:29.:21:32.

half-term training camp giving tips to the potential stars of the

:21:32.:21:42.
:21:42.:21:44.

future. Their dreams are crystal clear,

:21:44.:21:53.

they want to emulate their heroes and start for Hull FC. Today this

:21:53.:21:57.

academy is their KC Stadium. Watching their every move is Tom

:21:57.:22:07.
:22:07.:22:10.

Briscoe and his team-mate. Tom's words are listened to intended.

:22:10.:22:16.

main thing is just the enjoyment. Time out to play rugby is a very

:22:16.:22:20.

important. I did it when I was younger and I enjoyed every minute

:22:20.:22:24.

of it and that is what I want to do so hopefully we can see some of

:22:24.:22:30.

these in the future playing. After time on the field executing those

:22:30.:22:34.

drills, it is back to the sports hall to receive well earned

:22:34.:22:40.

commendations. While the immediate future of Hull FC rests on people

:22:40.:22:44.

like Tom Briscoe, it seems the long-term future is in good hands.

:22:44.:22:49.

Tom Briscoe told us that when you on the wing and it is a windy day,

:22:49.:22:53.

always keep your eye on the ball and get under it. When you're on

:22:53.:22:58.

the wing, if you don't want to get wiped out, keep down low so you can

:22:58.:23:03.

score in the corner. What did you think of him as a player?

:23:03.:23:12.

brilliant player, I hope he stays with us. Tonight Hull plays at

:23:12.:23:16.

Salford. There's full commentary on Hull

:23:16.:23:22.

FC's game at Salford on BBC Radio Humberside tonight. The build-up

:23:22.:23:25.

has started with Sportstalk which is on now.

:23:25.:23:28.

Football - Scunthorpe United will be hoping to put their midweek

:23:28.:23:30.

disappointment behind them when they play Brentford at Glandford

:23:30.:23:35.

Park tomorrow. You can hear commentary of that keen on BBC

:23:35.:23:40.

Radio Humberside on FM from 1:30pm. On medium wave and DAB, you'll be

:23:40.:23:43.

able to hear Grimsby Town's FA Trophy match against York City.

:23:43.:23:51.

Coverage starts at 1:30pm and both matches kick-off at 3pm. BBC

:23:51.:23:54.

Lincolnshire will have coverage of Lincoln City's Conference game

:23:54.:24:03.

against Telford from 2pm. It's a bridge you might recognise,

:24:03.:24:06.

but made entirely from Matchsticks - over one hundred and twenty-five

:24:06.:24:09.

thousand of them. It's the painstaking result of 16 months

:24:09.:24:12.

work by George Brown. Now he's given it away to his daughter's

:24:12.:24:22.
:24:22.:24:28.

school. A Humber bridge that is a marvel in

:24:28.:24:32.

structural engineering, or inspiring in its majestic design

:24:32.:24:37.

and the painstaking time it took to complete. But for all its splendour,

:24:37.:24:41.

I wasn't actually talking about this Humber Bridge, I was talking

:24:41.:24:50.
