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

:00:08.:00:12.

has the set too much? Question is Albrecht Nick Barmby is a teacher

:00:12.:00:17.

at Hull City. I am at the KC Stadium to see what the future

:00:17.:00:22.

holds. Campaigners celebrate after plans

:00:22.:00:26.

for a more wind turbines in East Yorkshire are rejected.

:00:26.:00:30.

Claims that cuts in the number of its sheltered housing could cost

:00:30.:00:34.

the council more in the long run. They have not had the decency to

:00:34.:00:40.

come and explain everything to rise. And find in the sun, but there is

:00:40.:00:45.

more rain on the way. Who took advantage of the break in the

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:01:00.

clouds? It has been the wettest April ever recorded.

:01:00.:01:06.

There is speculation tonight concerning the future of the Hull

:01:06.:01:10.

City manager Nick Barmby. He took charge in December and is due to

:01:10.:01:15.

meet the club's members this week after the Tigers missed out on the

:01:15.:01:20.

chance of promotion to the Premier League. It is also his comments in

:01:20.:01:25.

the media in recent weeks but have led to unrest at the club. Our

:01:25.:01:32.

reporter is that the stadium right now. What details to we have?

:01:32.:01:36.

all started this afternoon when they get social media lines started

:01:36.:01:42.

buzzing with a remote that are the had been suspended by the owners.

:01:42.:01:47.

Since that time, we have had a statement from the owners who have

:01:47.:01:52.

said that they are aware of the speculation and are not in that

:01:52.:01:56.

position to make any comment. Tonight at the KC Stadium there is

:01:56.:02:04.

doubt over Nick Barmby is future. He joined the club eight years ago.

:02:04.:02:10.

All smiles for Nick Barmby. He joined in 2004 and was given

:02:10.:02:16.

managerial responsibility in December. This is the club for me.

:02:16.:02:20.

It is the club that I want to stay at. I have never thought about

:02:20.:02:25.

anything else. Even if I stopped as a player I do not think I would

:02:25.:02:31.

play for in other club. Soon he had the team on a winning streak. But

:02:31.:02:35.

this afternoon, then media networks started buzzing with rumours of his

:02:35.:02:43.

suspension. He was expected to meet owners about the club's future. He

:02:43.:02:48.

explained after their defeat to West Ham. We are nearly there. It

:02:48.:02:56.

is very important in to have meetings on how their club is doing.

:02:56.:03:02.

What you think about your own future? It is not what I want, all

:03:02.:03:08.

I want is what is best for the player's first and foremost. It is

:03:08.:03:14.

not a rallying cry. We're all trying for one thing and that is

:03:14.:03:18.

for at their club to do well. developments today have come as a

:03:18.:03:25.

shock to Tigers fans. He was doing a really good job. There have been

:03:25.:03:30.

a few rumours of things going on behind the scenes. There are

:03:30.:03:34.

meetings with them to discuss the future, but I take it it hasn't

:03:34.:03:40.

gone well. You will have heard my colleague

:03:40.:03:44.

speaking to him at the end of the West hand game he is with me now.

:03:45.:03:48.

Is this a shot you? I did wonder whether it he would be the manager

:03:48.:03:52.

at the end of the season and the beginning of next season. I did not

:03:52.:03:57.

see it coming today. I would say now that this is the end of the

:03:57.:04:03.

road for a Nick Barmby. I would also say that my expectation is

:04:03.:04:08.

that it will be the end of the head of their operations as well. What

:04:08.:04:13.

you think brought this about? not think the owners were impressed

:04:13.:04:17.

with what he was saying to people like me in the build up to getting

:04:17.:04:22.

future funding and making sure that promises that they had made to play

:04:22.:04:28.

most -- players were still in place. It is all about money. Let me just

:04:28.:04:32.

tell you that here at the KC Stadium Nick Barmby was due to be

:04:32.:04:36.

here because it is the official supporters' club end-of-season

:04:36.:04:40.

bonanza. Some of the players may be here we will try and get them later

:04:40.:04:50.
:04:50.:05:00.

on in the programme. I do very much indeed. If you could give us your

:05:00.:05:07.

thoughts on this one please e-mail and.

:05:07.:05:17.
:05:17.:05:19.

-- e-mail it in. In a moment on tonight's programme we will see

:05:19.:05:25.

them take their fight to the at top local MPs. The meat they BAE

:05:25.:05:29.

Systems chief executive. Campaigners against wind turbines

:05:29.:05:35.

in East Yorkshire are celebrating after proposals for at two sites in

:05:35.:05:40.

the Wolds were it withdrawn. It comes on the day that I knew

:05:40.:05:45.

reports on the Campaign to Protect Rural England says that parts of

:05:45.:05:49.

rural England are being overrun with plans to make more wind

:05:49.:05:55.

turbines. In the heart of the Wolds they rely

:05:55.:06:01.

on wind energy as an important source of extra income. 1 wind

:06:01.:06:06.

turbines dead as half of this man's allergist he needs.

:06:06.:06:09.

It is a really important part in managing the costs of the business

:06:09.:06:13.

and making sure that we are competitive in the marketplace. In

:06:13.:06:17.

doing that, we have shielded ourselves from the inevitable rise

:06:17.:06:24.

in costs of energy. With these breathtaking views campaigners want

:06:24.:06:31.

the Wolds protected from the wind turbines. Today it two applications

:06:31.:06:37.

were withdrawn. Another two were rejected. They are saying that they

:06:37.:06:43.

are sorry but we -- value are landscapes. These people are making

:06:43.:06:49.

money. That is money about a of tariffs at the expense of this

:06:49.:06:59.
:06:59.:07:02.

beautiful landscape. With any decade it is set to triple. At the

:07:02.:07:07.

moment there are a lot of turbines in a UK but to meet Government

:07:08.:07:15.

targets they will have to generate 15 % from renewable energy.

:07:15.:07:18.

It is expected that 10,000 wind turbines need to be built across

:07:18.:07:25.

the country. We're keen to see a strategic approach happen. It needs

:07:25.:07:31.

to filter down to local level to ensure that we do not see these an

:07:31.:07:36.

appropriate sites come in forward in the first place. Campaigners

:07:36.:07:39.

want to see a better balance between the concerns of those who

:07:39.:07:47.

live here and the demands for a renewable energy. Two men who

:07:47.:07:53.

attempted to smuggle nine Kuwaiti nationals into Hull have been

:07:53.:07:58.

jailed for 11 years. The core 18 nationals were found in

:07:58.:08:03.

the back of this and on its way back from Rotterdam by UK Border

:08:03.:08:08.

Agency officers last year. Tariq Mohammed and Muhammad Al-Kulefi

:08:08.:08:13.

were found guilty after a breaching immigration law. They have no

:08:13.:08:20.

regard for those people. They have no regard for concern for them. All

:08:20.:08:25.

they are is a commodity. And 11- year-old girl from Lincolnshire

:08:25.:08:30.

suffered injuries at birth and is to receive compensation of nearly

:08:30.:08:36.

�11 million. Milly Evans was born at Lincoln County cost -- Lincoln

:08:36.:08:40.

County Hospital. It is one of the highest negligence

:08:40.:08:48.

payments ever made. How much of the battle has this been? Lincoln

:08:48.:08:53.

County Hospital has not always looked at this case in the same way,

:08:53.:08:58.

but they have always admitted their negligence. It was more about how

:08:58.:09:01.

much they would get. She was transferred to any NATO

:09:01.:09:07.

unit once she was born but then had trouble breathing. The midwife

:09:07.:09:10.

should have stopped -- spotted sooner that there was a problem and

:09:10.:09:14.

that she was in distress. The claim that then she would have been

:09:14.:09:19.

delivered sinner and not suffered such a catastrophic injury. She now

:09:19.:09:24.

has cerebral palsy and needs 24- hour care. She cannot speak but can

:09:24.:09:30.

communicate with specialised equipment. We were at court date --

:09:30.:09:34.

today to see the settlement. What did the hospital have to say about

:09:34.:09:40.

the case? The trust paid tribute to the family and said that no amount

:09:40.:09:47.

of words could put right what had gone wrong. They said that the NHS

:09:47.:09:51.

Trust admitted liability and apologised. It said that in the 11

:09:51.:09:55.

years since her birth the guidelines and practices had

:09:55.:10:01.

changed significantly. The trust hopes that the settlement will

:10:01.:10:06.

assessed Milly Evans to achieve a full potential. Her lawyer has said

:10:06.:10:10.

that the money would ensure that she had a positive life experience

:10:10.:10:17.

as far as possible. It has been confirmed that no compulsory

:10:17.:10:22.

redundancies will be made in Brough from BAE Systems.

:10:22.:10:28.

David Davies and Alan Johnson net worth company chiefs of BAE Systems.

:10:28.:10:33.

They say that the problem with jobs at the site is intensifying this

:10:33.:10:38.

week as workers prepare for a protest at the company's AGM on

:10:38.:10:44.

Wednesday. Recycled to Manchester to see the Prime Minister and plot

:10:44.:10:49.

their fight to Downing Street. As the battle to save Brough enters

:10:49.:10:56.

its 8th month the MPs continued to keep pressure on the bosses of BAE

:10:56.:11:00.

Systems. At last the company are beginning

:11:00.:11:07.

to engage constructively. They are still not keeping all the jobs at

:11:07.:11:12.

Brough. But they are looking at supply jobs and assembly jobs and

:11:12.:11:16.

other engineering jobs being kept their which were not be for it. We

:11:16.:11:23.

are having some progress. They have effectively gone back into

:11:23.:11:28.

consultation. They are now doing things to investigate those job

:11:28.:11:34.

losses which they should have been doing what -- three months ago.

:11:34.:11:37.

They have said that manufacturing will stop here next June and there

:11:37.:11:42.

will be more than 800 redundancies. There are still options to go

:11:42.:11:46.

forward. We won its to keep these people

:11:46.:11:50.

together. There is a high skilled work force here with a lot of

:11:50.:11:55.

skills. It is an ideal place to put work into what every aircraft in

:11:55.:12:01.

the street or any other industry they have planned for us. Workers

:12:01.:12:05.

like Steve are queuing up to do their bit. These buyers will be

:12:05.:12:11.

held -- handed out at the next AGM. They will be protect the --

:12:11.:12:17.

protesting against job cuts there. It is a big wide world out there

:12:17.:12:23.

for us. Progress might seem slow but MPs and workers say that

:12:23.:12:27.

meetings like today are vital to their fight. They are playing the

:12:27.:12:31.

long game. There are sustaining pressure or on BAE Systems in the

:12:31.:12:39.

hope that they will keep jobs local in the future. The story that we

:12:39.:12:46.

have followed since the start. Flat water in a foot deep has been found

:12:46.:12:51.

on a winter just reach this morning. The emergency services say that

:12:51.:12:54.

they found many other places that were affected, lots of houses had

:12:55.:13:01.

been affected. We will have more on the forecast in just a minute.

:13:01.:13:06.

Still ahead on the programme tonight, wardens are cut in Hull

:13:06.:13:12.

and there are claims that elderly accommodation will be lost. And who

:13:12.:13:20.

has made the most of the good weather before the rain returns?

:13:20.:13:23.

Thank you for what in this Monday night.

:13:23.:13:31.

If you have a photograph descended 10. We found this one from Wolds.

:13:31.:13:36.

We will have been other picture a roundabout the same time tomorrow

:13:36.:13:42.

roundabout the same time tomorrow night. It has been the wettest

:13:42.:13:50.

April on record. Let me show you the headlines for the next 24 hours.

:13:50.:13:57.

The weather is not changing there is more rain to come. It is

:13:57.:14:03.

smashing records for rain for a people. Over 150 mm have been found

:14:03.:14:07.

in the month right across the region. Tomorrow it will be cloudy

:14:07.:14:12.

with patchy rain. The high pressure continues down from the North.

:14:12.:14:16.

There will be more rain coming with that. Early this evening we will

:14:16.:14:22.

see more of that also. Especially over Lincolnshire. You can see the

:14:22.:14:28.

downpour is coming out going across East Anglia and clipping into North

:14:28.:14:32.

West Tonight. It is fine at the moment with 17 degrees across the

:14:32.:14:38.

region. But we will see showery outbreaks. That is especially in

:14:38.:14:43.

southern areas. In the North, it looks mostly dry though Wendy. They

:14:43.:14:50.

will be a strengthening easterly wind. It will be around 45 degrees

:14:50.:14:56.

Fahrenheit. The sun will rise in the morning and there will be high

:14:56.:15:06.

water at in Skegness. On the 1st May we will see mostly cloudy skies.

:15:06.:15:10.

It will not rain all day. It will not be like it was yesterday. There

:15:10.:15:14.

will be dry spells in between but there will be rain never fired a

:15:14.:15:19.

way. There will be a strong easterly wind that will ease later

:15:19.:15:25.

on. It will be around 10 or 11 degrees Celsius. There will be dry

:15:25.:15:31.

spells as well. On Wednesday it will be a cloudy and damp start

:15:31.:15:35.

although it will become brighter. Its tents much colder in May. The

:15:36.:15:45.
:15:46.:16:00.

bank had -- the Bank Holiday Say here tomorrow. -- see you

:16:00.:16:04.

tomorrow. Politicians in Hull are being warned that 45% cuts to

:16:04.:16:06.

sheltered accommodation warden service could end up costing the

:16:06.:16:09.

authority more money than it is saving. The Labour-run council says

:16:09.:16:12.

it needs to save around half a million pounds from the service to

:16:12.:16:15.

save money and it is blaming the cuts on the coalition government.

:16:15.:16:25.
:16:25.:16:28.

But opposition parties say core services should be protected. Steve

:16:28.:16:34.

Wilson is a regular visitor at his mum's flat, but he fears the loss

:16:34.:16:38.

of the Daily warden service at her sheltered housing complex could

:16:38.:16:43.

mean she will have to go into residential care. I know the scheme

:16:43.:16:48.

isn't good enough and doesn't provide the confidence and the

:16:48.:16:54.

back-up that we need for my mum. It should totally be financed by the

:16:54.:17:00.

council. Funding sheltered councils properties like this come from

:17:00.:17:04.

their council budget which has seen cuts of almost half a million

:17:04.:17:10.

council. Elections are taking place next Thursday, so you have the

:17:10.:17:14.

biggest leveraged possible on your local councillors. A union leaders

:17:14.:17:19.

are worried about job losses, but they are more concerned about the

:17:19.:17:24.

safety of the residents. Potentially, the could be at risk.

:17:24.:17:29.

People could fall in the home and not be able to access help and lie

:17:29.:17:35.

there for days. Daily wardened visits are being replaced by weekly

:17:35.:17:41.

visits at best. They just men con - - they just knock on the door to

:17:41.:17:47.

see if you are OK. Anger, real anger, because they have not had

:17:47.:17:51.

the decency to come down and explain everything to us. A trend

:17:52.:17:55.

that is one of 800 people who live in sheltered accommodation in the

:17:55.:18:03.

city. -- Brenda is. These voters could prove crucial in the

:18:03.:18:11.

elections. If I had a fall, and could not get up, and could not get

:18:11.:18:17.

a life line, I could be left there for more than 24 hours. The Labour

:18:17.:18:27.
:18:27.:18:30.

group are in control of the council at present. All three main parties

:18:30.:18:34.

insist the service is safe with them. A we should look at her core

:18:34.:18:39.

services, which is looking after elderly, and the vulnerable and

:18:39.:18:45.

street lights. That is always first and foremost in our budget. Where

:18:45.:18:52.

there are needs which need to be met, and where they are the

:18:52.:18:55.

physical disabilities that need that extra attention, I will make

:18:55.:19:03.

sure that happens. The warden service is vital for those who live

:19:03.:19:09.

in sheltered accommodation. It is human contact that they need on a

:19:09.:19:14.

regular basis. Those affected by the cuts see if it is not reversed,

:19:14.:19:19.

it could end up costing the local- authority more in the long run.

:19:19.:19:25.

Earlier, I spoke to Age UK on the issue and asked if they had some

:19:25.:19:30.

busy for the financial position of the council? I said so -- I think

:19:30.:19:40.
:19:40.:19:41.

so but it can be up conundrum. The local council needs to bring

:19:41.:19:47.

everything into the equation, it will it make a saving? Is it

:19:47.:19:53.

safeguarding of the welfare of people living in those games?

:19:53.:19:58.

only the number of visits of wardens which will be cut, is that

:19:58.:20:02.

not a sensible compromise? It may be a sensible compromise depending

:20:02.:20:08.

on the needs of individuals in that scheme. They need to make sure they

:20:08.:20:11.

are talking to individual residents in that scheme, assessing their

:20:11.:20:16.

needs and talking to their families and ensuring it can guarantee the

:20:16.:20:20.

well-being of all those people living in those games. They cannot

:20:20.:20:27.

take a blanket approach. Another of wardens and visits are being cut,

:20:27.:20:30.

but we heard from the council leader that where there is a

:20:30.:20:38.

medical lead, it will be met, are you reassured by that? -- medical

:20:38.:20:43.

need. The role of the warden is providing people with the Daily

:20:43.:20:48.

point of contact and support. Often a warden provides many different

:20:48.:20:55.

functions, acting as a good neighbour and monitoring and making

:20:55.:20:58.

sure that they can respond to the needs of the individuals in those

:20:58.:21:04.

schemes. It is not just about emergency situations. It is also

:21:04.:21:07.

acting as a point of contact for people who might be vulnerable or

:21:07.:21:14.

isolated. A used see it as a mistake? It depends on how far they

:21:14.:21:19.

have actually spoken to the residence and negotiated that to

:21:19.:21:24.

ensure they can guarantee the support and safety of those

:21:24.:21:33.

residents. Thank you very much. You might want to comment on that,

:21:33.:21:37.

so send me an e-mail. On Friday we reported on alleged

:21:37.:21:40.

mismanagement at a group of academies in Lincolnshire. Report

:21:40.:21:42.

by the Department of Education described serious failings at the

:21:42.:21:44.

Priory Federation of academies, following allegations that the

:21:44.:21:47.

Trust's former chairman had spent public money employing his daughter

:21:47.:21:55.

and on items including riding lessons for his son. A big response

:21:55.:22:05.
:22:05.:22:30.

to this after the programme, here Thank you very much.

:22:30.:22:33.

Grimsby Town's joint manager has told Look North the mariners can

:22:33.:22:40.

challenge for promotion back to the Football League next season.

:22:40.:22:43.

Saturday's 1-nil home defeat to Southport in the club's last match

:22:43.:22:46.

of the season means they finished 11th in the table, and 11 points

:22:46.:22:51.

off the play-offs. I lookout where we are and the teams we were up

:22:51.:22:59.

against, how far away from them? Certainly, we can compete to get

:22:59.:23:05.

back consistency throughout the season. After weeks of rain, we saw

:23:05.:23:12.

some rare sunshine today. Have people been making the most of the

:23:12.:23:17.

warm spell while they can? Our reporter has been out and about to

:23:17.:23:21.

see what has been going on. There is something different about

:23:21.:23:28.

today. Maybe it is because I do not need this raincoat for the first

:23:28.:23:34.

time in about a month. With this short break of fine weather, how

:23:34.:23:40.

are people making the most of it? Jean and Ernest Henderson are

:23:40.:23:48.

finally getting their late -- their roof done. We started in April,

:23:48.:23:52.

stripping it down and then the rains came and everything has been

:23:52.:23:56.

held up ever since. It is unbelievable how much she can get

:23:56.:24:04.

done when it is not raining. It is fantastic. I hope it will be like

:24:04.:24:09.

this all week. And Nick Marshall can now start to sell some of his

:24:09.:24:17.

open-top cars. We might have all the doors open and the roofs of us

:24:17.:24:21.

like you can see M8 such a difference, the place looks alive.

:24:21.:24:27.

Yesterday was a washout. Children at the local primary school are

:24:27.:24:31.

finally playing outside and doing some local support. We get to play
