Could evening. The headlines: a vote of confidence in Grimsby. New

:00:16.:00:21.

investment as hundreds of fish processing jobs are created. Good

:00:21.:00:26.

news for the port at that there bringing 250 jobs. Good news for

:00:27.:00:33.

everybody. Warnings that the cockle industry is in crisis because of

:00:33.:00:41.

quotas. People cannot earn a living. They are not even earning a minimum

:00:41.:00:49.

wage. Calls to keep the cost of insurance down for people in flood

:00:49.:00:54.

risk areas. And preparations are underway to move the carcass of a

:00:54.:01:04.
:01:04.:01:10.

whale. And do not forget to join me Good evening. Millions of customers

:01:10.:01:15.

of one of the UK's biggest supermarkets could soon be buying

:01:15.:01:19.

fish protest -- processed in Grimsby. Morrisons has announced

:01:19.:01:23.

that it plans to build the processing factory which will

:01:23.:01:28.

create 200 new jobs. The multi- million pound investment is being

:01:28.:01:32.

welcomed as a boost of confidence in the town. Our Business

:01:32.:01:37.

Correspondent reports. Our appetite for fish grows up bigger every year

:01:37.:01:43.

and Morrisons want to sell more of it. Its investment in Europe's fish

:01:44.:01:49.

processing capital will mean the new factory and hundreds of jobs.

:01:49.:01:53.

We believe the technical skills are here and as far as supplies is

:01:53.:02:00.

concerned there is a great deal of knowledge in area. The announcement

:02:00.:02:08.

comes just weeks after another farm said it wanted to shed 300 jobs.

:02:08.:02:13.

hope that the company will come here and find a secure future. And

:02:13.:02:21.

that other suppliers well as well. Good news for jobseeker's as well

:02:21.:02:24.

like this former fish processing manager. Although he warns that

:02:24.:02:30.

competition for places has never been so fierce. It is a tough call

:02:30.:02:38.

to get into work here. Does this investment give you walk? Yes. If

:02:38.:02:44.

they're coming then hopefully other people well as well. The fish will

:02:45.:02:51.

be distributed to all 475 stones across the UK. In a town of above-

:02:51.:02:56.

average unemployment the sort of investment will always be welcomed.

:02:56.:02:59.

What will be interesting will be the response of other UK

:03:00.:03:05.

supermarkets. It could mean further investment of the same time.

:03:05.:03:13.

Karen's the fish market is the most obvious beneficiary. -- Grimsby.

:03:13.:03:17.

do not know the details yet but look for to building a relationship

:03:17.:03:23.

with the company. Recruitment for the jobs begins in the coming weeks

:03:23.:03:28.

and the company is not ruling out expansion and more jobs if the

:03:28.:03:38.
:03:38.:03:40.

What is the thinking behind this Also poor markets are finding it

:03:40.:03:46.

difficult to get fish and their shells. -- all supermarkets. The

:03:46.:03:50.

price of diesel has a lot to do with that. What the company of

:03:50.:03:55.

doing is taking more control over its own stores by saying they will

:03:55.:04:05.
:04:05.:04:05.

Whilst it might be good news for the fishing industry in Grimsby

:04:05.:04:09.

fishermen in The Wash say that restrictions on gamut of cockles

:04:09.:04:13.

they can catch arc stretching the industry to breaking-point and they

:04:13.:04:23.
:04:23.:04:23.

say that things could get even harder. Jamie's boat has been tied

:04:23.:04:30.

up for eight months. He wants to be doing this. Harvesting cockles. But

:04:30.:04:34.

Fisher men reached the limits set by the fissuring -- fisherman's

:04:34.:04:42.

authority and now cannot catch any more until a new quota is set.

:04:42.:04:46.

Terrible. People cannot earn a living. They have not even make the

:04:46.:04:54.

minimum wage for the last 12 months. This is a lucrative crop worth

:04:54.:04:58.

�1,000 per tonne. But fishermen say that the rules leaves them

:04:58.:05:05.

scratching around for work and reliant on a few private contracts.

:05:05.:05:12.

With successful stock management we can provide a successful future.

:05:12.:05:17.

There is quite a lot of damage your but it is not purely problem. A

:05:17.:05:22.

cable has been laid here Connecting the Skegness wind farm with the

:05:22.:05:27.

shore. It has cut through a cockle bed and killed some of this year's

:05:27.:05:36.

stock. Anywhere from 800-1,200 tonnes. So they're coming back to

:05:36.:05:42.

cut through again which will destroy more. Another cable will be

:05:42.:05:49.

relayed by the wind farm owners in May. They say that because -- the

:05:49.:05:54.

dispute the claim. But they admit that it is unclear how many young

:05:54.:05:58.

cockles died. For many this is just another pressure on a struggling

:05:58.:06:04.

industry. The boats you see here a you shouldn't see here. They should

:06:05.:06:09.

be out doing their jobs at sea. At the moment their benefit claimants

:06:09.:06:16.

and their boats are in debt. Fishing is a trade handed down

:06:16.:06:20.

through the generations. But no fish are many here say that the

:06:20.:06:23.

economic pressures are so great that unless something changes at

:06:23.:06:32.

the industry is at risk of dying Coming up: why the Red Arrows will

:06:32.:06:41.

not be flying like this over the 115 people face redundancy with the

:06:42.:06:46.

closure of a well known haulage a farmer in Hull. Administrators have

Cromer hospital open new units today. Others will fall on the next

:07:11.:07:15.

few weeks. Lincolnshire Fire and rescue is trying to recruit more

:07:15.:07:22.

women. They say that women with children at school could help.

:07:22.:07:26.

Calls will be made this week for flood insurance to be kept

:07:26.:07:31.

available and affordable for homeowners. On Wednesday government

:07:31.:07:35.

ministers, insurers, and local councillors will come together to

:07:35.:07:38.

discuss the problem of people not being able to get their house

:07:38.:07:43.

insured because they live in a flood risk area. Recent figures

:07:43.:07:51.

suggest almost 17,000 homes are at risk in Hull and East Riding alone.

:07:51.:07:58.

Wendy is one of the only 15,000 people whose home was flooded in

:07:58.:08:04.

Hull in 2007. -- nearly 15,000 people. Although the deluge has

:08:04.:08:07.

gone she is still feeling the effects. Insurance premiums have

:08:07.:08:17.

rocketed. Our last premium came to �750 pair in Year and �15,000

:08:17.:08:24.

excess. How can anybody find that? The floods left the insurance

:08:24.:08:28.

companies with a bill running into the billions. A deal between

:08:28.:08:34.

government and insurers to cover flood risk homes 10th next year.

:08:34.:08:38.

That has left many homeowners worried that they could be

:08:38.:08:43.

blacklisted by insurers. government must bear pen and decide

:08:43.:08:48.

who to support will communities. We cannot leave entire cities unable

:08:48.:08:55.

to access the insurance market. Despite fears many homes could

:08:55.:08:59.

become unsaleable this estate agent claims they still appeal to first-

:08:59.:09:07.

time buyers. It will have some effect but there are plus sides.

:09:07.:09:13.

You just got to lookout for other insurance elsewhere. When they

:09:13.:09:17.

eventually found the company to insular her for what here but is

:09:17.:09:23.

worried what will happen after that. I am really dreading that. Not just

:09:23.:09:27.

for me, but for all the flood victims. We had many sleepless

:09:28.:09:33.

nights and I had a nervous breakdown. I am sure this will put

:09:33.:09:42.

a lot of pressure on people who cannot get insurance next year.

:09:42.:09:45.

When they now lives with the constant fear it could all happen

:09:45.:09:55.
:09:55.:09:56.

again and that she will not able to I am joined by the floods Minister,

:09:56.:10:02.

Richard Benyon. Can you be sure our viewers that their homes will not

:10:02.:10:11.

become unsaleable. -- can you reassure? We are working very hard

:10:11.:10:17.

to reach principles there will cover the arrangement that ends in

:10:17.:10:22.

2013. We want something that falls at which makes insureds widely

:10:22.:10:28.

available. People can get insurance right now but ideally what you want

:10:28.:10:36.

to see happen after 2013? That homes will take precautions to

:10:36.:10:40.

limit the effects of flooding, which many are doing. That is

:10:40.:10:45.

reflected in premiums. Government will be spending �2.7 million over

:10:45.:10:50.

the next three years on flood protection. We will continue to

:10:50.:10:54.

play our part in making sure that happens. And we want to find an

:10:54.:10:58.

arrangement so that we can announce in the spring to the insurance

:10:58.:11:03.

industry that insurers will be widely available. And also

:11:03.:11:09.

protection for those on low incomes. Are you close to that and will be

:11:09.:11:16.

insulins be affordable? Day is no arrangement on a affordability. The

:11:16.:11:20.

so-called statement of principles is just about availability, not

:11:20.:11:25.

cost. The recognise there are many people in flood risk areas who have

:11:25.:11:31.

the threat of the actual effect of massively increased premiums. We

:11:31.:11:34.

want to make sure government is still doing it spat but we also

:11:34.:11:38.

want reach agreements with the insurance industry to make sure it

:11:38.:11:45.

is widely available and affordable. Diana Johnson, a local MP, says

:11:46.:11:53.

flood defence budgets are being cut by 27%. Is that true? No It is not.

:11:53.:11:59.

We are spending 6% less than the last spending period but you

:11:59.:12:02.

spending it better. We're keeping an extra money from other sources,

:12:02.:12:08.

�72 million this year, we hope more next year. And the efficiency of

:12:08.:12:12.

what we're doing, we hope we can put forward a good part of the

:12:12.:12:19.

Government's part of the deal, putting money into flood defences.

Tomorrow will be a quieter picture, a ridge of high pressure means much

:14:02.:14:07.

less wind and it has been blowing a gale on the coast with guests

:14:07.:14:14.

approaching 50 miles an hour. The swirl of clout is feeding cloud

:14:14.:14:22.

into East Lincolnshire and North. - - cloud. It has been a horrible day

:14:22.:14:31.

again over the last few hours. The cloud feeding in, patchy rain,

:14:31.:14:37.

further north and west dry it with clear spells. A touch of frost in

:14:37.:14:45.

set -- in places. Eventually, the wind will ease. The high water

:14:45.:14:55.
:14:55.:14:56.

A much better day in general, there will be cloud to watch out for in

:14:56.:15:00.

extreme south eastern parts. The risk of patchy rain towards the

:15:00.:15:04.

Wash and North Norfolk. Some sunshine and a light south-west

:15:04.:15:14.
:15:14.:15:15.

breeze. Everywhere will feel less cold. The top temperatures:

:15:15.:15:20.

temperatures up to nine degrees in Gainsborough and Lincoln. Further

:15:20.:15:26.

Outlook, Graham MacPherson, sunshine and showers, predominantly

:15:26.:15:31.

dry towards the end of the week and getting milder.

:15:31.:15:39.

In matters to us sea dogs who you have upset! -- it matters. Too late

:15:39.:15:43.

to back pedal. See you tomorrow. They're one of the most familiar

:15:43.:15:46.

sights in the skies above Lincolnshire - and we're all used

:15:46.:15:48.

to seeing the Scampton-based red arrows flying like this. But for

:15:49.:15:52.

the rest of the summer season, there won't be nine hawk jets - but

:15:52.:15:56.

just seven - looking like this. It follows the death of two pilots

:15:56.:16:00.

earlier in the season. The reds will still fly in their traditional

:16:00.:16:02.

nine formation for flypasts at big events like the diamond jubilee,

:16:02.:16:07.

but for this summers displays only, their numbers will be cut. I spoke

:16:07.:16:17.
:16:17.:16:17.

to Aviation writer Jim Ferguson This is a great shame, I do not

:16:17.:16:21.

think it should detract from the scale of the aerobatic team. People

:16:21.:16:28.

will flock in hundreds of thousands to any Red Arrows display so the

:16:28.:16:31.

main thing well before the members of the team to reassess where they

:16:31.:16:37.

are. Do you think This is the start of a scaling back of the Red

:16:37.:16:44.

Arrows? I would hope not. This country has lots of past Aviation

:16:44.:16:49.

icons, the only one we have got left is the Red Arrows. If anyone

:16:49.:16:57.

in the Treasury or the money- changers, keep their fingers out.

:16:57.:17:00.

Do you sent politicians might think now is the time to draw a line

:17:00.:17:06.

under the Red Arrows -- do you sense? The aircraft are getting

:17:06.:17:14.

older. An interesting question, you have to ask the Chief of the Air

:17:14.:17:19.

Staff or the Defence Secretary. It would be an unpopular decision for

:17:19.:17:24.

whatever reason. Hundreds of thousands see the Red Arrows every

:17:24.:17:29.

year, they are at the top of the world's aerobatic display teams.

:17:29.:17:33.

Even if the aircraft are wearing out, thought should be given to

:17:33.:17:39.

replace them and make us aware of the possibility but not for many

:17:39.:17:47.

years. They have had a torrid 12 months. Correct. The Bournemouth

:17:47.:17:53.

accident and the other tragedy. Not good at all for any unit of the

:17:53.:17:57.

Royal Air Force or military unit. Not good for the Red Arrows because

:17:57.:18:02.

the team spirit is quite remarkable, they are a team in the finest sense

:18:02.:18:11.

of the word. The goods to talk you. -- good to talk to you. And this is

:18:11.:18:14.

another story you might like to comment on. As always, you can get

:18:14.:18:18.

in touch in all the usual ways - the email and text numbers are on

:18:18.:18:21.

the screen now. Hull Kingston Rovers got an

:18:21.:18:24.

impressive win in the Super League as they beat Widnes 36-0 at Craven

:18:24.:18:29.

Park. There was also a win for Hull FC yesterday, as Linsey Smith

:18:29.:18:39.

reports. Former Hull FC coach Richard Agar

:18:39.:18:43.

was denied a return to the KC Stadium. The Wigan boss watched

:18:43.:18:52.

Hull notch up a lead. Will sharp increased their lead and it looked

:18:52.:18:58.

like they had achieved their first clean sheet in six years. But the

Wildcats staged a rousing come at - - come back. It ended her love C 14,

:19:05.:19:12.

Wakefield Wildcats 10. -- Hull FC. At Craven Park, the Robins got off

:19:12.:19:19.

to the perfect start with a third- minute try. Jake Webster and George

:19:19.:19:22.

Hodgson got their names on the scoreboard, the traffic was all

:19:22.:19:32.

one-way. It was Craig hawk who scored two of the six tries. The

:19:32.:19:37.

coach praised his side for managing a 36-0 winner despite some of the

:19:37.:19:43.

worst possible conditions, turning the match into a mudbath. Hull City

:19:43.:19:45.

face arch-rivals Leeds United tomorrow in their latest attempt to

:19:45.:19:50.

move back into the play-off places. The Tigers left it late to salvage

:19:50.:19:53.

a point at Blackpool after going behind at Bloomfield Road on Friday.

:19:53.:19:56.

In the end a last minute Matty Fryatt goal secured a point for

:20:17.:20:19.

Scunthorpe United manager Alan Knill says this month will be vital

:20:19.:20:23.

for their bid to stay in league one. Saturday's 4-1 win against Wycombe

:20:23.:20:26.

means they are now two points above the relegation zone as they prepare

:20:26.:20:35.

to travel to Oldham tomorrow. month is a big one, nine games this

:20:35.:20:41.

month. If we can come out of it with positive points we will be in

:20:41.:20:46.

a good position for the last month. And a reminder that former Hull

:20:46.:20:48.

City Boss Phil Brown and Scunthorpe's former manager Brian

:20:48.:20:52.

Laws will both be on Late Kick Off this evening. We'll also be able to

:20:52.:20:56.

see all the weekend's goals - that's at 11:05pm tonight.

:20:56.:20:59.

Three Lincolnshire swimmers are fighting for their place at the

:20:59.:21:02.

London Olympics this evening. Lizzie Simmonds, Katie Haywood and

:21:02.:21:04.

Sophie Allen are all competing at the Olympic Aquatics Centre in

:21:04.:21:11.

London for a place in Team GB. Our Olympic correspondent Simon Clark

:21:11.:21:14.

is following their progress for us. Simon, how likely is it they'll

:21:15.:21:21.

make it? If you go to the BBC red button,

:21:21.:21:26.

you can see this live and in 10 seconds will know if Luneside East

:21:26.:21:32.

-- Lizzie Simmonds is making it for the women's backstroke. Here it

:21:32.:21:36.

comes. The key moment, we will learn whether Lizzie Simmonds has

:21:37.:21:44.

been successful or not. It is one of two events we will be watching,

:21:44.:21:49.

we need to see if she will come second. In the 100 metres

:21:49.:21:59.
:21:59.:22:00.

breaststroke, Kate Haywood. She did tremendously well in the heats but

:22:00.:22:05.

needed the qualifying time, she needs to swim faster tonight. This

:22:05.:22:12.

young lady, Sophie Allen has had a tremendous meeting, qualifying for

:22:12.:22:20.

the other final and goes head-to- head with TT tonight. She needs a

:22:20.:22:25.

fast race. They race will be on at about 7pm tonight. Watch it on the

:22:25.:22:29.

BBC red button. The rotting carcass of a huge sperm

:22:29.:22:33.

whale has provided an unexpected tourist attraction for Skegness.

:22:33.:22:36.

Hundreds of people have been to see the remains since the whale was

:22:36.:22:39.

discovered on Saturday morning. Preparations are now being made to

:22:39.:22:47.

remove it from the beach. Here's Simon Spark.

:22:47.:22:52.

Today in the wind and rain, there is little to see but sand. Despite

:22:52.:22:56.

the weather, what lies beneath has brought people here to take a

:22:56.:23:03.

closer look. Something, pollution which is doing this. It is really

:23:03.:23:11.

sad. A once-in-a-lifetime thing. We shall never see it again. How do

:23:11.:23:18.

you shift something like that? 50 ft sperm whale washed ashore on

:23:18.:23:22.

Saturday. It's believed to have died a few days before it was

:23:22.:23:26.

beached. Because of that, it was covered with sand to minimise its

:23:26.:23:34.

pungent smell. Basically, I saw this shape and I thought it was an

:23:34.:23:39.

upturned boat. As it got closer, the smell made us realise it was a

:23:39.:23:46.

carcass. Sadly, for that to happen, these things happen in nature.

:23:46.:23:51.

Experts said there were a number of things they could have happened.

:23:51.:23:56.

should have been in deeper water than the sea off Skegness. It was

:23:56.:24:00.

probably in the North Atlantic or Norwegian Sea where it is deeper.

:24:00.:24:06.

It would have been feeding on squid, they can dive to 3,000 metres. I

:24:06.:24:13.

think it would have been up there. That's my guess. Its 50 metres, 50

:24:13.:24:19.

ft in length but the real problem is its sheer weight. Estimated to

:24:19.:24:25.

be between 25 and 30 tons and that will be a real issue when trying to

:24:25.:24:30.

move it. A decision on how to finally move it is still to be made.

:24:30.:24:33.

Simon Spark is live in Skegness. Simon, what will happen to the

:24:33.:24:43.

whale's body now? Well, we will update you had three

:24:43.:24:48.

in a moment. It is a third night under the sky for the Skegness

:24:48.:24:54.

whale. It is lying under a blanket of sand 300 yards from me. Most

and they have asked me the same question, what will happen next and

how will they move it? To update us is East Lindsey District Council.

:25:08.:25:14.

Any further answers? We are waiting for a licence to remove it from the
