Good evening. Welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines: Their balloon

:00:10.:00:14.

crashed into power lines, but an East Yorkshire family escapes

:00:14.:00:18.

unhurt. I lost sight of it from the road.

:00:18.:00:24.

It drifted over to the lines. The situation, they have been very

:00:24.:00:28.

lucky. The Government asks for this school

:00:28.:00:32.

in Lincoln to answer questions about its financial management.

:00:32.:00:36.

The churches which could miss out on vital repairs because of changes

:00:36.:00:42.

in VAT. A adding 20% to any deal is going to make any parish look

:00:42.:00:48.

carefully at what he does. And one double-act at the one show.

:00:48.:00:51.

Beryl and Betty prepare for their network premiere.

:00:51.:00:56.

It is looking showery for the weekend. Before full cast later in

:00:56.:01:06.
:01:06.:01:11.

A group of balloonists have escaped injury after their hot air balloon

:01:11.:01:16.

came down on power lines. The pilot and his nine passengers, including

:01:17.:01:22.

three from East Yorkshire, had taken off from York racecourse and

:01:22.:01:26.

crashed one hour into their flight. An investigation into the accident

:01:26.:01:31.

at West Haddlesey near Selby has begun. The company has blamed

:01:31.:01:35.

strong winds as the pilot tried to land.

:01:35.:01:38.

Anything but a safe landing for the passengers on board this pleasure

:01:38.:01:46.

flight. The pilot and his nine passengers left York at at 7:30am

:01:46.:01:51.

today. The hot-air balloon travelled 20 miles and weather

:01:51.:01:55.

conditions were fair, but the landing did not go as planned. I

:01:55.:01:59.

spoke to the pilot this morning and he said that he was planning to

:01:59.:02:04.

land the billion here by the road, but sadly it was not to be. All

:02:04.:02:08.

nine passengers were carried in this direction, around 200 metres,

:02:08.:02:14.

missing the pond, but hitting the power lines. It was just before 9am

:02:14.:02:18.

when the balloon landed here near West Haddlesey. Richard Watson who

:02:19.:02:27.

lives nearby saw the drama unfold. It happened just before the road.

:02:28.:02:34.

It seemed to bans -- bounce back up. It hit the flood bank at and went

:02:34.:02:38.

over the bank and that is when I lost sight of it from the road. It

:02:38.:02:42.

drifted over to the lines. As you can see from heiresses, they have

:02:42.:02:48.

been very lucky. The power lines carry 66,000 volts, but the

:02:48.:02:52.

electricity supply would have disconnected it as the balloon hit

:02:52.:03:02.

the wire. It is a big job. It is a long feed from Ferrybridge going

:03:02.:03:11.

towards Selby. We have the over- hyped -- over headlines dead now.

:03:11.:03:14.

No-one was available for comment from the balloon adventure company

:03:14.:03:20.

which runs the flights, bed in a statement, they said there was an

:03:20.:03:24.

increase of surface winds when landing and that no-one was injured.

:03:24.:03:28.

It is not the first time an accident like this had happened. A

:03:28.:03:32.

balloon crashed earlier this week in Northamptonshire. An

:03:32.:03:39.

investigation into what happened here is now under way.

:03:39.:03:43.

Tonight, our reporter is live at the scene of the crash. What is

:03:43.:03:49.

happening there to like? The balloon came down in this field

:03:49.:03:54.

behind me, just a few feet away from the water. As you can imagine,

:03:54.:03:59.

a traumatic experience for the people involved. This afternoon,

:03:59.:04:04.

investigators have been taking photographs. Within the last half

:04:04.:04:08.

an hour, the balloon has been taken away. Three of the people on board

:04:08.:04:12.

were from East Yorkshire, and we have been speaking to them. They

:04:12.:04:16.

have been shaken by what happened. It was a birthday treat. They said

:04:16.:04:22.

they had a wonderful time in the air. As they looked for somewhere

:04:22.:04:26.

safe to land, a gust of wind blew them into some cables and they came

:04:26.:04:31.

down. We also spoke to the pilot on board. He has been doing this for

:04:32.:04:36.

25 years and nothing like this has ever happened to him. I also spoke

:04:36.:04:39.

to some villages today who were waving at the balloon as it went by

:04:39.:04:42.

and did not realise that anything had happened until the power went

:04:42.:04:46.

off in their homes. Everyone is relieved that no-one was injured,

:04:46.:04:50.

but that does not make it any less upsetting for those involved.

:04:50.:04:56.

Thank you very much. In a moment, how millions of litres

:04:56.:05:03.

of water are being saved in parts of drought-hit Lincolnshire.

:05:03.:05:06.

The Government has asked a Lincolnshire school to respond to

:05:06.:05:12.

concerns over the way it manages its finances. Two weeks ago, the

:05:12.:05:15.

chief executive of the Priory Federation of Academies, Richard

:05:15.:05:20.

Gilliland, steps down suddenly. It is emerged that that was as a

:05:20.:05:25.

result of an investigation into the school's financial management.

:05:25.:05:30.

The Priory Federation is one of the biggest and most ambitious academic

:05:30.:05:35.

projects in the country. They have four schools in and around Lincoln.

:05:35.:05:41.

It is now at the centre of a government enquiry. Its chief

:05:41.:05:46.

executive's -- executive has resigned. Richard Gilliland was one

:05:46.:05:55.

of Britain's highs pays civil servants. His departure was an

:05:55.:06:00.

expected, but it coincides with this investigation into possible

:06:00.:06:04.

financial irregularities. Academies are not controlled by the

:06:04.:06:08.

local authority and critics say the Government's enquiry highlights

:06:08.:06:14.

concerns. These allegations are serious. This is public money that

:06:14.:06:19.

we are talking about. It is vital that we get to the bottom of what

:06:19.:06:23.

has happened, who sanctioned it and how we can move forward and prevent

:06:23.:06:30.

this happening in the future. Funding for academies comes direct

:06:30.:06:34.

from the Government. Richard Gilliland has overseen a multi-

:06:34.:06:38.

million-pound budget in his time. In France, his chateau was

:06:38.:06:43.

converted into an overseas Learning Centre, whilst in Lincolnshire they

:06:43.:06:48.

have been Olympic-sized running tracks, state-of-the-art gymnasiums

:06:49.:06:52.

and at a science block with a planetarium. Supporters say that

:06:52.:06:57.

these kinds of facilities have turned round failing schools. The

:06:57.:07:01.

Department of Education are awaiting a response of its findings

:07:01.:07:07.

-- to its findings, but management have be unavailable for comment.

:07:07.:07:10.

Plans for a multi-million-pound energy plant in North East

:07:10.:07:16.

Lincolnshire which could create 200 jobs has been given the go-ahead.

:07:16.:07:21.

The �130 million biomass station would be built at Immingham, using

:07:21.:07:26.

wood pellets as fuel. It would power 90,000 homes. Directly, it

:07:26.:07:31.

will create about 200 jobs in the construction phase and about 30

:07:31.:07:37.

jobs when it is operating. It is not just this business on its own.

:07:37.:07:41.

It is part of a wider renewables cluster that we have in North East

:07:42.:07:46.

Lincolnshire. It is helping to bring those industries into the

:07:46.:07:50.

area. There are claims that many churches

:07:50.:07:55.

in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire will not be able to afford vital

:07:55.:07:59.

improvements when new tax changes come into effect later this year.

:07:59.:08:04.

The Archdeacon of Lincoln is one of the campaign is trying to stop the

:08:04.:08:09.

introduction of VAT on alterations to listed buildings.

:08:10.:08:15.

In many leafy parishes, a quiet revolt is gaining momentum over the

:08:15.:08:21.

latest government tax changes. Soon, alterations to listed buildings

:08:21.:08:26.

including churches will no longer be free from VAT. In recent years,

:08:26.:08:31.

people in this village near Sleaford have raised thousands of

:08:31.:08:38.

pounds to pay for repairs for the church spire. The trouble is it.

:08:38.:08:42.

Parishes wanting to help their churches and make them available

:08:42.:08:48.

for community use. They are going to be cautious about taking on any

:08:48.:08:58.
:08:58.:09:00.

sort of expenditure that will anchor -- in care this new VAT.

:09:01.:09:06.

many cases, extra grants will be available to cover the extra cost

:09:06.:09:10.

of approve alterations to listed places of worship. This latest

:09:10.:09:16.

controversy about VAT on repairs to listed buildings follows the row

:09:16.:09:23.

about VAT on hot snacks, the so- called pasty tax. There was also

:09:23.:09:28.

the rout on VAT on static caravans, which will have an effect on that

:09:28.:09:33.

industry. The highlight these -- the whole idea is that people

:09:33.:09:37.

should have enough money to keep historic buildings in a good state

:09:37.:09:43.

of repair. Taxes should be transparent and simple. They should

:09:43.:09:49.

not be used as a -- an excuse for the Chancellor to grab more money.

:09:49.:09:53.

Thousands of churchgoers have signed a petition calling on the

:09:53.:09:57.

Government to keep alterations to listed buildings free from VAT. In

:09:58.:10:02.

the age of austerity, it could take more than the power of prayer to

:10:02.:10:09.

force a rethink by the Treasury. We are interested in your views on

:10:09.:10:14.

this one. Should churches be a special case when it comes to

:10:14.:10:24.
:10:24.:10:35.

paying VAT on repairs, or should There will be more on this story on

:10:35.:10:44.

the Sunday Politics this weekend at 12 noon on Sunday on BBC One.

:10:44.:10:50.

Still ahead: The family of the Yorkshire fundraiser eight Jane

:10:50.:10:52.

Tomlinson prepare for their own charity challenge.

:10:52.:10:56.

On their way to the big-time, we follow the pensioners who are

:10:56.:11:06.
:11:06.:11:08.

Tonight's photograph was done by Richard Brooks, he took this of

:11:08.:11:13.

Nettleham Beck Ford near Lincolnshire -- in Lincolnshire. If

:11:13.:11:18.

you have any pictures you are proud of, send them into words. We will

:11:18.:11:28.
:11:28.:11:43.

Today, we have seen showers once again and there is little changing

:11:43.:11:47.

as we head through the weekend. We will have a mixture of Seychelles

:11:47.:11:57.

and scattered showers tomorrow. -- sunny spells. There is an increased

:11:57.:12:07.
:12:07.:12:08.

risk of showers later on in the day. This is the satellite picture.

:12:08.:12:13.

Tonight, skies will clear from the North. Gardiner's beware, there

:12:13.:12:21.

will be a widespread frost. Temperatures will drop to one

:12:21.:12:31.
:12:31.:12:34.

Celsius. The sun rises tomorrow morning at six at 2am tomorrow.

:12:34.:12:40.

Tomorrow, the there will be a bright start with sunshine. The

:12:40.:12:44.

cloud that will increase from the North, pushing southwards and

:12:44.:12:48.

bringing some bursts of rain with it. It will continue to New South

:12:48.:12:53.

West, so it may be that across East Yorkshire it brightens up with the

:12:53.:12:57.

best of the sunshine returning towards the end of the day. The

:12:57.:13:02.

temperatures are still struggling because of the northerly wind. The

:13:02.:13:07.

wind will be fresh and gusty. Temperatures will be about a

:13:07.:13:11.

degrees Celsius, below average. Showers will clear to the South

:13:11.:13:15.

towards the end of Saturday. There will be sunshine on Saturday

:13:15.:13:22.

evening. There'll be more frost overnight on Sunday and Monday. Wet

:13:22.:13:32.
:13:32.:13:35.

and windy into the start of the next week.

:13:35.:13:41.

On Wednesday, we told you how East Lindsey District Council were

:13:41.:13:44.

confused as to whether they could use hosepipes to water their plants

:13:44.:13:48.

on the seafront in Skegness. They said they'd had no clarification

:13:48.:13:58.
:13:58.:14:01.

and so that was a question I put to Anglian water.

:14:01.:14:05.

Perfect does not matter who is doing it. It is the use of the

:14:05.:14:10.

hosepipe that is prohibited. I have a statement here from Anglian Water

:14:10.:14:13.

customer services. They say that if the contractor is hired to do such

:14:13.:14:16.

activities, then the use of a hosepipe for a hanging basket will

:14:17.:14:20.

be acceptable. Therefore, it is the sole purpose of their business

:14:20.:14:25.

because they are hired for the job. If you are using a hosepipe in a

:14:25.:14:29.

public garden, which is classified as a garden in this situation, if

:14:29.:14:33.

you were not able to use a hosepipe to water the plants. So this

:14:33.:14:37.

statement is wrong? It sounds like a days.

:14:37.:14:40.

Well, we've now had this response from Anglian Water. They say a

:14:40.:14:44.

hosepipe can be used in the course of a business to clean a private

:14:44.:14:47.

motor vehicle, walls or windows of domestic premises, paths or patios

:14:47.:14:50.

or an artificial outdoor surface, where this is done as a service to

:14:50.:14:52.

customers. It doesn't apply to gardens, hanging baskets or

:14:52.:15:02.
:15:02.:15:02.

flowerbeds. That was in East Lindsey on

:15:02.:15:05.

Wednesday. Elsewhere in Lincolnshire, millions of litres of

:15:05.:15:08.

water are being saved as measures are in place to deal with the

:15:08.:15:12.

drought. They're cutting back on washing council vehicles and

:15:12.:15:15.

planning how to save water in parks and gardens, as Jake Zuckerman

:15:15.:15:25.
:15:25.:15:26.

reports. At this swimming pool, there is

:15:26.:15:31.

certainly no shortage of water. But that has not stopped the District

:15:31.:15:37.

Council looking for ways to cut back on the amount it uses. We have

:15:38.:15:41.

for maximum Pools across the district. We're using lots of

:15:41.:15:44.

things like using a pool covers, only cleaning our filters when we

:15:44.:15:48.

need to, we have Federation in our taps and showers to reduce the

:15:48.:15:54.

volume of water used by 60%. comes in the week when the East

:15:54.:15:56.

Lindsey District Council said it was worried the hosepipe ban could

:15:56.:16:02.

damage tourism in Skegness at the time's florals displays die off. It

:16:02.:16:06.

has spent more than �70,000 and plans to beautify the time and

:16:06.:16:10.

needs to keep them watered. Here, the scale of planting is more

:16:10.:16:14.

modest, but the time Council are still looking at ways to avoid the

:16:14.:16:19.

problem. We have to rethink this year and probably for future years.

:16:20.:16:23.

One of our senior operatives is actually a qualified Gardner. We

:16:23.:16:28.

will be taking his advice as to drought-resistant plants, mulching,

:16:28.:16:34.

gravel, Park. The counsellors encourage and all employees to do

:16:34.:16:38.

their bed, with a message on every council computer. Each of their

:16:38.:16:43.

toilets has one of these flaws reducing devices and it has also

:16:43.:16:48.

cut back on washing its vehicles. One of the key things we have done

:16:48.:16:53.

is to change the frequency of the washing of RFU's fleet. Once upon a

:16:53.:16:57.

time, we go doing it once a week. We're now doing it once a month.

:16:57.:17:00.

They will not look quite a smart, but it will save quite a lot of

:17:00.:17:06.

water. With these measures being taken by that the District Council,

:17:06.:17:11.

they are making a real difference. Over the last 12 months at this

:17:11.:17:15.

site alone, they have saved the equivalent of 2.5 million litres of

:17:15.:17:19.

water. And by setting a good example, on the council hopes it

:17:19.:17:28.

will encourage others to look at their water use.

:17:28.:17:32.

The whole story of that right, I'll be will continue to follow that.

:17:32.:17:34.

The family of the late charity fundraiser Jane Tomlinson are

:17:35.:17:37.

setting off on an epic challenge this weekend, to help raise money

:17:38.:17:40.

for good causes in Yorkshire. Jane's husband Mike and daughter

:17:40.:17:43.

Rebecca will run a marathon in Paris on Sunday, before starting a

:17:43.:17:48.

600 mile cycle ride. They'll head to Zeebrugge to get the ferry to

:17:48.:17:52.

Hull. They'll ride through the city on Wednesday, across Yorkshire and

:17:52.:18:00.

down to London for another marathon, all in just eight days.

:18:00.:18:03.

Jane's daughter Rebecca has been to visit Sunshine House in Hul, a

:18:03.:18:06.

charity that's benefitted from the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, and has been

:18:06.:18:16.
:18:16.:18:18.

looking at what difference her Mum made. We now run, I think of her

:18:18.:18:21.

and what she achieved and everyone she inspired.

:18:21.:18:25.

Ten years ago, I watched Mum run the London marathon. It was the

:18:25.:18:28.

start of an incredible journey. It was a journey that swept us all up

:18:28.:18:32.

and I know what she did made a difference to people's lives.

:18:32.:18:34.

People like 25-year-old Jema, diagnosed with thyroid cancer last

:18:34.:18:39.

summer. Her treatment left her exhausted and depressed, so she was

:18:39.:18:48.

prescribed what she calls the Tomlinson treatment. My doctor

:18:48.:18:52.

tells me to exercise all the time. She is constantly telling me to

:18:52.:18:57.

exercise, to a point where I cannot exercise any more! If you are

:18:57.:19:00.

stronger, you can get through it easier. That is the point they are

:19:00.:19:03.

trying to make. Jema's not unusual. Last year,

:19:03.:19:05.

research highlighting the benefits of physical activity alongside

:19:05.:19:07.

cancer treatment was published, findings that have been embraced

:19:07.:19:14.

here at Macmillan. Over the last 10 years, there has been increasingly

:19:14.:19:18.

powerful evidence that shows that moderate amounts of exercise will

:19:18.:19:23.

both reduce the chances of cancer coming back and reduce the chances

:19:23.:19:29.

of you developing heart disease, thin bones, diabetes later.

:19:29.:19:31.

Keeping healthy, keeping positive and changing perceptions were all

:19:31.:19:34.

massively important to Mum, but the challenges had another, possibly

:19:34.:19:44.
:19:44.:19:49.

greater, effect. They raised money. What will the Jane Tomlinson fund

:19:49.:19:53.

provide for the house? One of the things we wanted to do for the

:19:54.:19:57.

children is make this area into a multi- sensory room.

:19:57.:20:00.

Organisations like this respite facility have benefited from over

:20:00.:20:03.

�3 million raised to date. It's humbling to see the impact the

:20:03.:20:12.

money has and it's the reason Dad carried on. To I would not

:20:12.:20:16.

recommend this life for anyone. You have to accept that this is the

:20:16.:20:20.

path we chose. It is the path I am choosing to stay on. I could walk

:20:20.:20:28.

away. I would feel like a was not doing the right thing, in terms of

:20:28.:20:38.
:20:38.:20:45.

June. And so we keep pushing the limits, as she would have done.

:20:45.:20:48.

It's not the only fundraiser that Jane has inspired in Hull. On June

:20:48.:20:51.

the third, thousands of runners will be taking part in the Run For

:20:51.:20:55.

All. Our reporter Anne-Marie Tasker is on the course. How big will this

:20:55.:21:03.

event be? When the 10, to race starts here

:21:03.:21:06.

outside the hall, they're hoping it'll be even bigger than last

:21:06.:21:11.

year's event, when they attracted 4,000 runners. The rich will be the

:21:11.:21:15.

same as last year. They will be heading out to the East of the city,

:21:15.:21:18.

back past the marina, through the city centre for and then back here

:21:18.:21:23.

to the finish line. The charity is aiming to bring its fund-raising

:21:23.:21:26.

total to �5 million this year. They're asking anyone who still

:21:26.:21:30.

wants to take part in the race to apply. You can do that on their

:21:31.:21:35.

website. Jane Tomlinson had strong links to this city. She studied

:21:35.:21:41.

here and received an honorary doctorate from the University. A

:21:41.:21:46.

her eldest daughter graduated from the university as well. That was

:21:46.:21:49.

back in 2007. Because of those strong legs, Mike and Rebecca

:21:49.:21:52.

wanted to bring their big fund- raising challenge back to the city

:21:52.:21:56.

next week. They will be cycling through the city on Wednesday and

:21:56.:21:59.

heading out across the East Yorkshire countryside towards York

:21:59.:22:04.

on arguably what is their most tough challenge yet.

:22:04.:22:07.

The coach of Hull FC, Peter Gentle, has called on the Rugby League to

:22:07.:22:10.

look again at their Easter scheduling, saying teams are too

:22:10.:22:15.

tired to play two matches in three days. Speaking ahead of their cup

:22:15.:22:17.
