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

:00:06.:00:09.

He seriously injured two babies: Now the authorities say sorry for

:00:09.:00:15.

failing to stop Adam Hewitt. Diagnosed with dementia in her 30s:

:00:15.:00:22.

The story of a husband's struggle to cope. She would go out of the

:00:22.:00:29.

house and walk anywhere without any shoes. I have lost her and ended up

:00:29.:00:34.

finding her sat in the theatre. A host of frozen daffodils:

:00:34.:00:37.

Lincolnshire growers count the cost of extreme weather.

:00:37.:00:40.

And she doesn't have a full-time coach, but this teenager has

:00:40.:00:46.

reached trials for the Olympics. And an exceptionally mild day to

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:01:00.

come tomorrow. The forecast had a few minutes. -- in a few minutes.

:01:00.:01:05.

Seriously flawed. East Riding of Yorkshire council's own words. It

:01:05.:01:09.

admits to failings in the way it handled a major tra protection case.

:01:09.:01:13.

The man from Bridlington has been jailed for five years after he

:01:13.:01:17.

fractured the skull of one baby and left another with permanent brain

:01:17.:01:23.

damage. Now a review has blamed social services and the police for

:01:23.:01:28.

failing to co-ordinate what they knew about Adam Hewitt or to manage

:01:28.:01:35.

the risk she posed to children. Adam Hewitt from Bridlington was

:01:35.:01:39.

jailed last week for five years for injuring -- injuries inflicted on

:01:39.:01:44.

two children. Today, a serious case review revealed how social workers

:01:44.:01:52.

and police failed to identify the rescue posed. Poor assessment and

:01:52.:01:55.

judgment from social workers left one child with permanent brain

:01:55.:01:58.

damage and another baby with a fractured skull. Today, the

:01:58.:02:02.

different agencies involved were queuing up to offer explanations

:02:02.:02:07.

and remorse. Bron Sanders from the East Riding Safeguarding Children

:02:07.:02:13.

Board has apologised for the failings. She said in a statement,

:02:13.:02:17.

the recommendations have been fully implemented. I'm confident the

:02:17.:02:21.

similar case will be managed appropriately in the future. Alison

:02:21.:02:25.

Michalska, the Director of Family and Children Services at East

:02:25.:02:29.

Riding Council has admitted the assessment process was seriously

:02:29.:02:39.
:02:39.:02:40.

Meanwhile, Alan Leaver, Assistant Chief Constable at Humberside

:02:40.:02:50.
:02:50.:02:59.

Shoppers in Bridlington today expressed their horror that while

:02:59.:03:03.

Adam Hewitt was known both to the police and social services, nobody

:03:03.:03:09.

intervened. To me, the whole system needs be changed. Not just the

:03:09.:03:13.

social services, everything. read it all the time up about all

:03:13.:03:18.

these kids. What are they getting paid for? Social services should

:03:18.:03:27.

have helped a lot more. This woman works in job protection and says

:03:28.:03:31.

the situation has improved over that -- over the last couple of

:03:31.:03:40.

years. Children who are at risk of harm a discussed within a multi-

:03:40.:03:44.

agency conference. Any plan that a child needs in order to safeguard

:03:44.:03:50.

them is made within that conference as a multi- agency agreement.

:03:50.:03:55.

agencies involved says lessons have been learned. But the people of

:03:55.:04:00.

Bridlington and beyond can only hope they have.

:04:00.:04:07.

In a moment: It hasn't been blown off course from its Hull plans by a

:04:07.:04:12.

wind farm critics. A man from Lincolnshire has told of

:04:12.:04:15.

the struggle he faced to find suitable care for his wife when she

:04:15.:04:20.

developed before the off Alzheimer's before she was 40 years

:04:20.:04:25.

old. Michelle Borjak was diagnosed when she was only 28. She lived

:04:25.:04:30.

with her husband Steve at Wickenby near Louth and their two songs

:04:30.:04:40.
:04:40.:04:45.

before she had to go into care. -- sons. six only 600 people diagnosed

:04:45.:04:55.
:04:55.:04:56.

with Alzheimer's find out before the age of 40 -- only 600 people.

:04:56.:05:00.

From a young age, she started to go to London to do some to have done

:05:00.:05:03.

things because her father died of Alzheimer's when he was quite young,

:05:03.:05:09.

at 46. When she was 28 years old, she found out that she had the same

:05:09.:05:13.

gene as her father and that she was going to develop Alzheimer's at a

:05:13.:05:23.
:05:23.:05:27.

young age. We had 10 good years and then when she got a 38, she would

:05:27.:05:34.

go a very drunk -- a junction when she was driving a car. -- go over

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:46.

the junction. We went on holiday in 2010 with some friends from the pub.

:05:46.:05:56.
:05:56.:05:57.

She was really happy... Sorry. Five minutes after the picture was taken,

:05:57.:06:07.
:06:07.:06:09.

she stood up, she tipped the table over and stormed out. For no reason.

:06:09.:06:17.

Sorry. We had had the European Tour boy is young, and thought when they

:06:17.:06:23.

grew up, we could live a life. -- we had the Royal International Air

:06:23.:06:33.
:06:33.:06:42.

I had to keep the doors locked when she was at home. We used to have a

:06:42.:06:45.

dog and she used to walk miles with it and then some days she would

:06:45.:06:50.

just go out of the house and a walk everywhere with no shoes on. We

:06:50.:06:55.

used to take out the docks and I have lost her two or three times

:06:55.:07:05.
:07:05.:07:10.

have I found her satin the theatre. -- sat in. I got so run-down and

:07:10.:07:16.

tired. I tried nursing homes all over the place. Because she was 43,

:07:16.:07:21.

nobody would take her. There was nothing for Michelle. They were

:07:21.:07:30.

only two best in hand that would take a. -- there were only two

:07:30.:07:37.

nursing homes that would take her. She doesn't even recognise herself

:07:37.:07:44.

sometimes. There is no where else for anybody have a certain age. It

:07:44.:07:50.

is heartbreaking. I knew she was going to get it when she had the

:07:50.:07:53.

Test, but I never thought it would get as bad as what it is. I never

:07:53.:08:00.

did. There really, really didn't. That was a Simon Borjak speaking

:08:00.:08:08.

about the impact of his wife Michelle's condition. Earlier I

:08:08.:08:10.

spoke to Dr Simon Ridley from Alzheimer's Research UK, a dementia

:08:10.:08:16.

research charity, and asked him how common Michelle's condition is?

:08:16.:08:23.

This type of inherited Alzheimer's disease is very rare. Most of the

:08:23.:08:27.

people in the UK with Alzheimer's Orin older age, so this is a rare

:08:27.:08:33.

type of dementia. And it is it always passed on to a faulty gene?

:08:33.:08:38.

Where there is a family history, it is a poor teaching. In the most

:08:38.:08:44.

common types of Alzheimer's disease, it is a far more complicated mix --

:08:44.:08:52.

it is a faulty gene. Dementia costs the UK �23 billion a year, 2.5 % of

:08:53.:08:57.

the government's medical research goes on dementia. Not very much

:08:57.:09:03.

compared to cancer, for example. Is enough being done? At Alzheimer's

:09:03.:09:10.

Research UK, we are trying to put as much money as we can researching

:09:10.:09:15.

dementia. They have made it a national priority, which is good.

:09:15.:09:20.

But it is not enough, unfortunately. If we are going to be dementia in

:09:20.:09:24.

the long term, we need to be investing in research now. We heard

:09:24.:09:27.

their from Steve about the difficulties of finding appropriate

:09:27.:09:31.

care for his wife. Is that a common problem for families? Certainly,

:09:31.:09:35.

care is a big issue for people with dementia, particularly in the later

:09:35.:09:41.

stages. Finding the right treatment and care is very important, and it

:09:41.:09:45.

is quite patchy in the services available. People with early onset

:09:45.:09:48.

dementia can have particular needs which often are not always

:09:48.:09:53.

highlighted. What about the future? Is enough being done to find a cure,

:09:53.:09:59.

or do we need to spend all our time on prevention? I think a bit of

:09:59.:10:03.

both. But we do need more research on a cure one day and we need to

:10:03.:10:08.

understand what is causing dementia. It is a very complicated disease

:10:08.:10:13.

and we need to understand the cause if we're to make real inroads into

:10:13.:10:21.

new treatments. What do you think? Should more be

:10:21.:10:24.

done to help prevent dementia or help find a cure? If you're

:10:24.:10:31.

affected by this one let me know your experiences. You can contact

:10:31.:10:41.
:10:41.:10:44.

Police are treating the death of a man in Hull as unexplained. Rimas

:10:45.:10:49.

Kontrimas, who was 39 and from Lithuania was found dead at this

:10:49.:10:53.

House on Princes Avenue on Saturday morning. He died from an injury to

:10:53.:10:57.

the chest. The funerals have taken place today

:10:57.:11:00.

for a six year-old boy and his grandmother who drowned in the late

:11:00.:11:03.

in Lincolnshire. The bodies of Dawn Mullaney, 71 from Castle Bytham,

:11:03.:11:09.

and her grandson Laurence Mullaney Mills were found at Holywell near

:11:09.:11:14.

Stamford 10 days ago. The energy giant Siemens says it is

:11:14.:11:18.

fully committed to investing in Hull. The comments come as other

:11:18.:11:20.

Green energy companies admit they're worried about the

:11:20.:11:25.

government's attitude to renewable energy. Siemens is set to build a

:11:25.:11:35.
:11:35.:11:35.

new wind turbine factory at Hull Docks. It is the �200 million

:11:35.:11:40.

factory that will put Hull at the heart of the renewables revolution.

:11:40.:11:45.

The Siemens plant on Hull Docks will create offshore turbines for

:11:45.:11:51.

the North Sea and 700 jobs. Today, Siemens renewed their commitment

:11:51.:11:57.

the city. The government has recently been consulting on

:11:57.:12:00.

policies for win power. We have been very encouraged by the

:12:00.:12:04.

response and we are pushing ahead with our plans in Hull. We are

:12:04.:12:09.

making -- making a commitment here. The century, the first big step is

:12:09.:12:17.

to put those planning applications in -- essentially. It is reassuring

:12:17.:12:23.

commit went. -- commitments. The Guardian claims that some companies

:12:23.:12:28.

have been put off investing because of the government's lukewarm

:12:28.:12:33.

attitude to wind farming. Wind farms are popping up the cost --

:12:33.:12:43.
:12:43.:12:43.

across East Yorkshire. Recently, many companies wrote to the Prime

:12:43.:12:48.

Minister to express their concerns. There were currently 14

:12:48.:12:52.

applications for wind farms like this in East Yorkshire. But his is

:12:52.:12:56.

not just politicians who are less than welcoming. In Routh, an

:12:56.:13:01.

application was rejected because of protests. My constituency is on the

:13:01.:13:06.

edge of the Lincolnshire Wells. The idea that people want the landscape

:13:06.:13:10.

cluttered with wind farms is nonsense. We want them based in the

:13:11.:13:18.

north to the. We want maintenance based in Lincolnshire -- North Sea.

:13:18.:13:22.

But it is one thing for those near wind turbines to object, but when

:13:22.:13:26.

MPs are raising concerns in numbers, the impression it gives to major

Our reporter is live at the future development on Alexandra Dock. What

is the latest for the plans? Sometimes ago, Siemens admitted

those plans and that is a show of commitment in itself. These are not

:13:49.:13:54.

just forms they would fill in on the off chance. They are up

:13:54.:13:58.

detailed plans that would have cost tens of thousands of pounds. They

took those plans are a tour of the city to show other businesses their

ambitions and they have also continued to order steel from Tata

:14:06.:14:16.

Steel to make buildings. And the boss of Siemens said that he hopes

:14:16.:14:23.

by the end of the spring he will have some positive news about the

:14:23.:14:26.

applications and the future of the site.

February's bizarre weather may have cost Lincolnshire daffodil growers

:17:18.:17:22.

hundreds of thousands of pounds in lost sales. A warm beginning of the

:17:22.:17:26.

month followed by extreme frost meant that some varieties were

:17:26.:17:32.

badly damaged. Around 40% of UK daffodils are grown in the county.

:17:32.:17:36.

At Holbeach in the heart of South Lincolnshire it stands a host of

:17:36.:17:42.

golden daffodils, but every single one of them is going to waste.

:17:42.:17:47.

weeks ago we had temperatures of minus 16 overnight. A lot of the

:17:47.:17:51.

flowers are already through the ground, ready to be picked, and

:17:51.:17:56.

they have had a terrible effect on their stems. Some of them have stem

:17:57.:18:04.

damage, such as this one here. That would not look very pretty in a

:18:04.:18:09.

vase. Others are failing to come out properly. More than an acre of

:18:09.:18:15.

daffodils has been lost here. That is 1.5 million stems in total. Many

:18:15.:18:19.

growers have lost some or all of their early crop. I have been

:18:19.:18:23.

growing for over 30 years and I have never seen such cold

:18:23.:18:27.

temperatures that occur at this late. We have quite a lot of leaf

:18:27.:18:35.

damage. That will probably carry over to the following year.

:18:35.:18:38.

Meanwhile, the job of picking the unaffected flowers continues in

:18:38.:18:43.

earnest. For growers here in Lincolnshire, the main daffodil

:18:43.:18:46.

season is just starting to get under way and babble but at their

:18:46.:18:53.

busiest in the next few weeks, with mothering Sunday. Daffodil

:18:53.:18:58.

production is around -- worth around �50 million to the UK

:18:58.:19:02.

economy and around 40% of the crop is produced in Lincolnshire, but

:19:02.:19:05.

farmers here say they are still confident they can make up for the

The countdown to the Olympics is well under way. This is the clock

She is only 15 but Chloe Hannam has confounded everyone by joining

:20:03.:20:07.

but we have a phenomenal team of volunteers to keep the club

brimming and ticking over. In the meantime, or we have had some great

Salford to claim victory, 24 to talk -- 24-22.

Hull Kingston Rovers had no answer to Warrington as they went down at

Thousands of acres of ancient wetlands are to be restored around

:22:49.:22:54.

the Humber to help protect some of our rarest plants and animals. The

:22:54.:22:58.

area, known as the Humberhead Levels, has won a share of �7

:22:58.:23:02.

million of Government money, to help local groups improved and

:23:02.:23:07.

protect their local habitats. Our reporter has been to a new nature

:23:07.:23:10.

reserve in North Cave near Brough which will benefit from the money.

:23:10.:23:15.

Ten years ago, this land in North Cape was picked to be the next

:23:15.:23:18.

landfill site but the local community for its plans and decided

:23:18.:23:23.

to create a nature reserve. Today it is home to more than 200 species

:23:23.:23:29.

of wildlife, and attracts around 20,000 visitors a year. We have

:23:29.:23:33.

designed it to create a wide variety of habitats to attract many

:23:33.:23:37.

different species of the water and other birds. But we have also put

:23:37.:23:45.

in facilities, packs and hides for anybody that is interested in

:23:45.:23:49.

coming into the countryside. This is just one part of Humberhead

:23:49.:23:53.

Levels, an area which contains a unique network of wetlands, now
