Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The Headlines tonight:
has the set too much? Question is Albrecht Nick Barmby is a teacher
at Hull City. I am at the KC Stadium to see what the future
holds. Campaigners celebrate after plans
for a more wind turbines in East Yorkshire are rejected.
Claims that cuts in the number of its sheltered housing could cost
the council more in the long run. They have not had the decency to
come and explain everything to rise. And find in the sun, but there is
more rain on the way. Who took advantage of the break in the
clouds? It has been the wettest April ever recorded.
There is speculation tonight concerning the future of the Hull
City manager Nick Barmby. He took charge in December and is due to
meet the club's members this week after the Tigers missed out on the
chance of promotion to the Premier League. It is also his comments in
the media in recent weeks but have led to unrest at the club. Our
reporter is that the stadium right now. What details to we have?
all started this afternoon when they get social media lines started
buzzing with a remote that are the had been suspended by the owners.
Since that time, we have had a statement from the owners who have
said that they are aware of the speculation and are not in that
position to make any comment. Tonight at the KC Stadium there is
doubt over Nick Barmby is future. He joined the club eight years ago.
All smiles for Nick Barmby. He joined in 2004 and was given
managerial responsibility in December. This is the club for me.
It is the club that I want to stay at. I have never thought about
anything else. Even if I stopped as a player I do not think I would
play for in other club. Soon he had the team on a winning streak. But
this afternoon, then media networks started buzzing with rumours of his
suspension. He was expected to meet owners about the club's future. He
explained after their defeat to West Ham. We are nearly there. It
is very important in to have meetings on how their club is doing.
What you think about your own future? It is not what I want, all
I want is what is best for the player's first and foremost. It is
not a rallying cry. We're all trying for one thing and that is
for at their club to do well. developments today have come as a
shock to Tigers fans. He was doing a really good job. There have been
a few rumours of things going on behind the scenes. There are
meetings with them to discuss the future, but I take it it hasn't
gone well. You will have heard my colleague
speaking to him at the end of the West hand game he is with me now.
Is this a shot you? I did wonder whether it he would be the manager
at the end of the season and the beginning of next season. I did not
see it coming today. I would say now that this is the end of the
road for a Nick Barmby. I would also say that my expectation is
that it will be the end of the head of their operations as well. What
you think brought this about? not think the owners were impressed
with what he was saying to people like me in the build up to getting
future funding and making sure that promises that they had made to play
most -- players were still in place. It is all about money. Let me just
tell you that here at the KC Stadium Nick Barmby was due to be
here because it is the official supporters' club end-of-season
bonanza. Some of the players may be here we will try and get them later
on in the programme. I do very much indeed. If you could give us your
thoughts on this one please e-mail and.
-- e-mail it in. In a moment on tonight's programme we will see
them take their fight to the at top local MPs. The meat they BAE
Systems chief executive. Campaigners against wind turbines
in East Yorkshire are celebrating after proposals for at two sites in
the Wolds were it withdrawn. It comes on the day that I knew
reports on the Campaign to Protect Rural England says that parts of
rural England are being overrun with plans to make more wind
turbines. In the heart of the Wolds they rely
on wind energy as an important source of extra income. 1 wind
turbines dead as half of this man's allergist he needs.
It is a really important part in managing the costs of the business
and making sure that we are competitive in the marketplace. In
doing that, we have shielded ourselves from the inevitable rise
in costs of energy. With these breathtaking views campaigners want
the Wolds protected from the wind turbines. Today it two applications
were withdrawn. Another two were rejected. They are saying that they
are sorry but we -- value are landscapes. These people are making
money. That is money about a of tariffs at the expense of this
beautiful landscape. With any decade it is set to triple. At the
moment there are a lot of turbines in a UK but to meet Government
targets they will have to generate 15 % from renewable energy.
It is expected that 10,000 wind turbines need to be built across
the country. We're keen to see a strategic approach happen. It needs
to filter down to local level to ensure that we do not see these an
appropriate sites come in forward in the first place. Campaigners
want to see a better balance between the concerns of those who
live here and the demands for a renewable energy. Two men who
attempted to smuggle nine Kuwaiti nationals into Hull have been
jailed for 11 years. The core 18 nationals were found in
the back of this and on its way back from Rotterdam by UK Border
Agency officers last year. Tariq Mohammed and Muhammad Al-Kulefi
were found guilty after a breaching immigration law. They have no
regard for those people. They have no regard for concern for them. All
they are is a commodity. And 11- year-old girl from Lincolnshire
suffered injuries at birth and is to receive compensation of nearly
�11 million. Milly Evans was born at Lincoln County cost -- Lincoln
County Hospital. It is one of the highest negligence
payments ever made. How much of the battle has this been? Lincoln
County Hospital has not always looked at this case in the same way,
but they have always admitted their negligence. It was more about how
much they would get. She was transferred to any NATO
unit once she was born but then had trouble breathing. The midwife
should have stopped -- spotted sooner that there was a problem and
that she was in distress. The claim that then she would have been
delivered sinner and not suffered such a catastrophic injury. She now
has cerebral palsy and needs 24- hour care. She cannot speak but can
communicate with specialised equipment. We were at court date --
today to see the settlement. What did the hospital have to say about
the case? The trust paid tribute to the family and said that no amount
of words could put right what had gone wrong. They said that the NHS
Trust admitted liability and apologised. It said that in the 11
years since her birth the guidelines and practices had
changed significantly. The trust hopes that the settlement will
assessed Milly Evans to achieve a full potential. Her lawyer has said
that the money would ensure that she had a positive life experience
as far as possible. It has been confirmed that no compulsory
redundancies will be made in Brough from BAE Systems.
David Davies and Alan Johnson net worth company chiefs of BAE Systems.
They say that the problem with jobs at the site is intensifying this
week as workers prepare for a protest at the company's AGM on
Wednesday. Recycled to Manchester to see the Prime Minister and plot
their fight to Downing Street. As the battle to save Brough enters
its 8th month the MPs continued to keep pressure on the bosses of BAE
Systems. At last the company are beginning
to engage constructively. They are still not keeping all the jobs at
Brough. But they are looking at supply jobs and assembly jobs and
other engineering jobs being kept their which were not be for it. We
are having some progress. They have effectively gone back into
consultation. They are now doing things to investigate those job
losses which they should have been doing what -- three months ago.
They have said that manufacturing will stop here next June and there
will be more than 800 redundancies. There are still options to go
forward. We won its to keep these people
together. There is a high skilled work force here with a lot of
skills. It is an ideal place to put work into what every aircraft in
the street or any other industry they have planned for us. Workers
like Steve are queuing up to do their bit. These buyers will be
held -- handed out at the next AGM. They will be protect the --
protesting against job cuts there. It is a big wide world out there
for us. Progress might seem slow but MPs and workers say that
meetings like today are vital to their fight. They are playing the
long game. There are sustaining pressure or on BAE Systems in the
hope that they will keep jobs local in the future. The story that we
have followed since the start. Flat water in a foot deep has been found
on a winter just reach this morning. The emergency services say that
they found many other places that were affected, lots of houses had
been affected. We will have more on the forecast in just a minute.
Still ahead on the programme tonight, wardens are cut in Hull
and there are claims that elderly accommodation will be lost. And who
has made the most of the good weather before the rain returns?
Thank you for what in this Monday night.
If you have a photograph descended 10. We found this one from Wolds.
We will have been other picture a roundabout the same time tomorrow
roundabout the same time tomorrow night. It has been the wettest
April on record. Let me show you the headlines for the next 24 hours.
The weather is not changing there is more rain to come. It is
smashing records for rain for a people. Over 150 mm have been found
in the month right across the region. Tomorrow it will be cloudy
with patchy rain. The high pressure continues down from the North.
There will be more rain coming with that. Early this evening we will
see more of that also. Especially over Lincolnshire. You can see the
downpour is coming out going across East Anglia and clipping into North
West Tonight. It is fine at the moment with 17 degrees across the
region. But we will see showery outbreaks. That is especially in
southern areas. In the North, it looks mostly dry though Wendy. They
will be a strengthening easterly wind. It will be around 45 degrees
Fahrenheit. The sun will rise in the morning and there will be high
water at in Skegness. On the 1st May we will see mostly cloudy skies.
It will not rain all day. It will not be like it was yesterday. There
will be dry spells in between but there will be rain never fired a
way. There will be a strong easterly wind that will ease later
on. It will be around 10 or 11 degrees Celsius. There will be dry
spells as well. On Wednesday it will be a cloudy and damp start
although it will become brighter. Its tents much colder in May. The
bank had -- the Bank Holiday Say here tomorrow. -- see you
tomorrow. Politicians in Hull are being warned that 45% cuts to
sheltered accommodation warden service could end up costing the
authority more money than it is saving. The Labour-run council says
it needs to save around half a million pounds from the service to
save money and it is blaming the cuts on the coalition government.
But opposition parties say core services should be protected. Steve
Wilson is a regular visitor at his mum's flat, but he fears the loss
of the Daily warden service at her sheltered housing complex could
mean she will have to go into residential care. I know the scheme
isn't good enough and doesn't provide the confidence and the
back-up that we need for my mum. It should totally be financed by the
council. Funding sheltered councils properties like this come from
their council budget which has seen cuts of almost half a million
council. Elections are taking place next Thursday, so you have the
biggest leveraged possible on your local councillors. A union leaders
are worried about job losses, but they are more concerned about the
safety of the residents. Potentially, the could be at risk.
People could fall in the home and not be able to access help and lie
there for days. Daily wardened visits are being replaced by weekly
visits at best. They just men con - - they just knock on the door to
see if you are OK. Anger, real anger, because they have not had
the decency to come down and explain everything to us. A trend
that is one of 800 people who live in sheltered accommodation in the
city. -- Brenda is. These voters could prove crucial in the
elections. If I had a fall, and could not get up, and could not get
a life line, I could be left there for more than 24 hours. The Labour
group are in control of the council at present. All three main parties
insist the service is safe with them. A we should look at her core
services, which is looking after elderly, and the vulnerable and
street lights. That is always first and foremost in our budget. Where
there are needs which need to be met, and where they are the
physical disabilities that need that extra attention, I will make
sure that happens. The warden service is vital for those who live
in sheltered accommodation. It is human contact that they need on a
regular basis. Those affected by the cuts see if it is not reversed,
it could end up costing the local- authority more in the long run.
Earlier, I spoke to Age UK on the issue and asked if they had some
busy for the financial position of the council? I said so -- I think
so but it can be up conundrum. The local council needs to bring
everything into the equation, it will it make a saving? Is it
safeguarding of the welfare of people living in those games?
only the number of visits of wardens which will be cut, is that
not a sensible compromise? It may be a sensible compromise depending
on the needs of individuals in that scheme. They need to make sure they
are talking to individual residents in that scheme, assessing their
needs and talking to their families and ensuring it can guarantee the
well-being of all those people living in those games. They cannot
take a blanket approach. Another of wardens and visits are being cut,
but we heard from the council leader that where there is a
medical lead, it will be met, are you reassured by that? -- medical
need. The role of the warden is providing people with the Daily
point of contact and support. Often a warden provides many different
functions, acting as a good neighbour and monitoring and making
sure that they can respond to the needs of the individuals in those
schemes. It is not just about emergency situations. It is also
acting as a point of contact for people who might be vulnerable or
isolated. A used see it as a mistake? It depends on how far they
have actually spoken to the residence and negotiated that to
ensure they can guarantee the support and safety of those
residents. Thank you very much. You might want to comment on that,
so send me an e-mail. On Friday we reported on alleged
mismanagement at a group of academies in Lincolnshire. Report
by the Department of Education described serious failings at the
Priory Federation of academies, following allegations that the
Trust's former chairman had spent public money employing his daughter
and on items including riding lessons for his son. A big response
to this after the programme, here Thank you very much.
Grimsby Town's joint manager has told Look North the mariners can
challenge for promotion back to the Football League next season.
Saturday's 1-nil home defeat to Southport in the club's last match
of the season means they finished 11th in the table, and 11 points
off the play-offs. I lookout where we are and the teams we were up
against, how far away from them? Certainly, we can compete to get
back consistency throughout the season. After weeks of rain, we saw
some rare sunshine today. Have people been making the most of the
warm spell while they can? Our reporter has been out and about to
see what has been going on. There is something different about
today. Maybe it is because I do not need this raincoat for the first
time in about a month. With this short break of fine weather, how
are people making the most of it? Jean and Ernest Henderson are
finally getting their late -- their roof done. We started in April,
stripping it down and then the rains came and everything has been
held up ever since. It is unbelievable how much she can get
done when it is not raining. It is fantastic. I hope it will be like
this all week. And Nick Marshall can now start to sell some of his
open-top cars. We might have all the doors open and the roofs of us
like you can see M8 such a difference, the place looks alive.
Yesterday was a washout. Children at the local primary school are
finally playing outside and doing some local support. We get to play
games. We had to wear trousers, but now we can wear skirts sore shorts.
Eight is good playing outside, playing football and playing with
your friends. When it was raining, we were stuck inside doing nothing,
we were bored. What a difference a bit of a dry weather can make. Let
us hope the last long enough to fix that roof. -- it last long enough.
Let us recap with the headlines. Ministers say they will do more to
ease the emigration queues at Heathrow as they are accused of
damaging Britain's reputation. Questions tonight over the future
of Nick Barmby at Hull City. The club refuses to comment.
Tomorrow's weather - showery with outbreaks of rain. Temperatures
outbreaks of rain. Temperatures mild with the strong Neth -- note
easterly wind. Some of the assaults on Nick Barmby. Jane has treated -
shocking, I think he has done Hull City proud this season. Another
viewers says I think he has done a great job, he has done very well. A
another text says he is not experienced enough for the job and
that shows this with the six -- with the situation which has arisen.
I another pure says Nick Barmby is Hull City and always will be.
Finally, he is a younger manager with a lot to learn and should not
