Good evening. Here are the headlines: Reduced to a childlike

:00:13.:00:18.

state - the rare disease which has affected two previously healthy

:00:18.:00:26.

brothers. Mentally they are younger than they should be. They are

:00:26.:00:36.
:00:36.:00:37.

children. Turmoil at the Tigers. Adam Pearson is sacked.

:00:37.:00:41.

For the �10.8 million compensation payout for an 11-year-old girl.

:00:41.:00:47.

Swat by a massive wave - new footage of the stricken round-the-

:00:47.:00:51.

world yacht. And we will have the full weather

:00:51.:01:01.
:01:01.:01:03.

forecasts later in the programme. There are two brothers who have

:01:03.:01:09.

been struck down with the same extremely rare terminal illness.

:01:09.:01:12.

Until they reached middle age Michael and Matthew Clark had

:01:12.:01:17.

enjoyed good health. They have both been married. Michael had even

:01:17.:01:20.

served in the RAF. But in the space of a few months they have been

:01:20.:01:25.

reduced to a childlike state - and able to wash, feed or care for

:01:25.:01:29.

themselves. The brothers, from Lincoln, have been diagnosed with

:01:30.:01:35.

Leukodystrophy, a genetic condition thought to affect fewer than 100

:01:35.:01:43.

adults in the whole of the UK. Two brothers who both used to be

:01:43.:01:47.

healthy young men, reduced now to a childlike state.

:01:47.:01:53.

Michael Clark, aged 42, had served in that Ali F. His 39-year-old

:01:54.:01:58.

brother Matthew Clark was a proud father. Now neither can survive

:01:58.:02:02.

independently. The parents, who had retired to Spain, have returned to

:02:02.:02:07.

the country to care for them. cannot look after themselves. They

:02:07.:02:11.

cannot cook. They don't even dress themselves, Bath themselves, or

:02:11.:02:18.

anything normal. They need help with everything. I have to wash and

:02:18.:02:23.

shave Michael, and dress them, and get his breakfast. The brothers

:02:23.:02:26.

have been diagnosed with a rare terminal condition called

:02:27.:02:31.

Leukodystrophy. It usually affects newborns and it is thought there

:02:31.:02:39.

could be as few as 100 adults in the UK were affected. Now I cannot

:02:39.:02:49.
:02:49.:02:52.

walk. If I do what I need somebody holding me up. I'd get shakes. I

:02:52.:02:59.

forget things. Leukodystrophy refers to a group of disorders

:02:59.:03:06.

caused by the imperfect growth of myelin - the fatty covering on it

:03:06.:03:14.

human nerve fibres. There is no known cure. 2 million people

:03:14.:03:19.

worldwide are thought to be affected. There is not the support

:03:19.:03:26.

at their that -- out there that there should be. It puts a stress

:03:26.:03:33.

on your emotions, I knew well-being, and their well-being. Every day is

:03:33.:03:37.

a fight. For now the whole family lives in a one-bedroom flat in

:03:37.:03:44.

Lincoln. They are trying their best to cope with the effects of a

:03:44.:03:50.

disease about which so little is known.

:03:50.:04:00.

Still to come - work for the region, or back con job. They renewables

sector sparked a new round. If the orders of Hull City Football

:04:04.:04:09.

Club have sat Adam Pearson, the man supporters credit with saving the

:04:09.:04:14.

club from extinction 11 years ago. Adam Pearson was the head of

:04:14.:04:20.

football operations. The orders, the Allams, have refused to

:04:20.:04:24.

elaborate on the position of manager Nick Barmby. We understand

:04:24.:04:33.

he has been expected -- suspended. The Allams say the remaining

:04:33.:04:36.

committed to Hull City and its future.

:04:37.:04:44.

Business as usual on Saturday, but today that changed.

:04:44.:04:52.

A statement from up the orders of the club confirmed they had

:04:52.:05:02.
:05:02.:05:07.

terminated the agreement with Adam I spoke to Adam Pearson shortly

:05:07.:05:10.

after he had issued a statement registering his extreme surprise

:05:11.:05:14.

and disappointment at what he described as an unjustified

:05:14.:05:18.

termination of his agreement. He told me all matters were in the

:05:18.:05:21.

hands of his lawyers as he drove away from the club.

:05:21.:05:26.

In Hull to the it is the talk of the time. You wish him all the best.

:05:26.:05:34.

He has done everything for the club. You have got to which Adam Pearson

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

all the best. I am not happy. He is the main man. I was satisfied with

:05:47.:05:49.

being just outside the play-offs and was looking forward to next

:05:49.:05:56.

season. I am not looking forward to it now. It is the issue that has

:05:56.:05:59.

made it one of the biggest faller in these on BBC Radio Humberside

:05:59.:06:03.

for some time. The supporters have expressed their

:06:03.:06:11.

views. Adam Pearson made an immense contribution to Hull City. The oils

:06:11.:06:16.

the wheels. He was the cog in the machine. It is a great loss to the

:06:16.:06:22.

football club. The fans respected him. We have received a copy of a

:06:22.:06:29.

document revealing: I have got to back the Allams.

:06:29.:06:32.

If it was not for them that we would have been in liquidation 18

:06:32.:06:38.

months ago. The two men may be doing business

:06:38.:06:45.

in the future. Us orders of a massive company, the Allams at

:06:45.:06:55.

effectively landlords to the rugby club owned by Adam Pearson.

:06:55.:07:00.

We are now joined by an expert on the football and business.

:07:00.:07:03.

A high-profile departure from the club. Question marks over the

:07:03.:07:07.

position of the manager. What impact will this have on the club,

:07:07.:07:14.

the sponsors, and the players? One thing that is bad for any

:07:14.:07:19.

football club is uncertainty. The more stable the club is, the more

:07:19.:07:22.

willing sponsors are to get involved, the more willing players

:07:22.:07:32.

are to join the club. Their owners have stressed that there running of

:07:32.:07:38.

the club as a sound and proper business is their top priority.

:07:38.:07:42.

first thing they have to do is communicate to the fans. If the

:07:42.:07:48.

owners do not communicate with the fans the fans get stressed. The

:07:48.:07:53.

Allams have put a lot into Hull City. A lot of it was when in the

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:03.

Duke the club out of administration. -- when it they took the club.

:08:04.:08:09.

is not a good time to be without ahead of food or a manager.

:08:09.:08:15.

absolutely. They had a good season. They just fell short of the play-

:08:15.:08:23.

offs. Nick Barmby has won a lot of support. There are new financial

:08:23.:08:31.

rules coming into the championship. Those financial rules mean the

:08:31.:08:35.

ability of the club to carry debt will be more restricted than in the

:08:35.:08:41.

past. Is there space for emotion in the world of football finances

:08:41.:08:45.

these days? There is always space for a motion in football. Football

:08:46.:08:50.

is an emotional game. If we did not support our clubs when they have

:08:50.:09:00.
:09:00.:09:03.

been beaten, they would be nothing to underpin the game. But times are

:09:03.:09:07.

tough. We are seeing major clubs like Rangers falling over the

:09:07.:09:11.

precipice financially. Orders are realising that they have to manage

:09:11.:09:21.
:09:21.:09:22.

the club's tightly, to make sure that they survive as a business.

:09:22.:09:27.

A second man has been charged with the murder of a Lincoln pensioner.

:09:27.:09:31.

70-year-old Sonny Grey was attacked last October in his home and died

:09:31.:09:35.

two days later. 23-year-old Robert Holmes from Wisbech will appear

:09:35.:09:40.

before magistrates tomorrow. 24- year-old Rocky Curtis has already

:09:40.:09:45.

been charged with murder. He appeared in court earlier today.

:09:45.:09:49.

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the body

:09:49.:09:54.

of a teenager was found near Sandringham. The body of a Alisa

:09:54.:09:59.

Dmitrijeva was found on New year's Day. The 17-year-old was reported

:09:59.:10:04.

missing last a temper. The men aged 28 and 31, and from the Wisbech

:10:04.:10:14.

area, were arrested and are currently being questioned.

:10:14.:10:19.

A former Police Community Support Officer has been found guilty of

:10:19.:10:23.

seven charges of sexual activity with children. He denied two

:10:23.:10:31.

further charges. The 48-year-old was remanded in custody and will be

:10:31.:10:34.

sentenced in June. A political row has broken out over

:10:34.:10:41.

the cost of wind energy to consumers in at our area. Speaking

:10:41.:10:47.

ahead of the local elections, Nigel Farage, the leader of UKIP,

:10:47.:10:50.

described the renewables sector as a con job which has increased

:10:50.:10:55.

energy bills by 15 %. His colleagues have been criticised by

:10:55.:10:59.

Green Party candidates. Industry figures say that the Humber region

:10:59.:11:09.
:11:09.:11:09.

will benefit from the renewables sector.

:11:10.:11:12.

Generating cleaner electricity could provide a major jobs boost

:11:12.:11:19.

for our economy, but at what price? In this East Yorkshire village they

:11:19.:11:24.

are already feeling the benefits of the renewable energy boom. Here a

:11:24.:11:28.

fleet of new boats will be built to service offshore wind farms in the

:11:28.:11:35.

North Sea. The us opportunity has come along.

:11:35.:11:40.

Hopefully it is a good start. We have three orders. What we will

:11:40.:11:43.

secure more work. In recent years the main political parties have

:11:43.:11:48.

been bending over backwards to try to flag up their green credentials.

:11:48.:11:52.

There is a real feeling that the promise of a new green jobs could

:11:52.:12:01.

prove to be a vote-winner in the local elections. A big wind turbine

:12:01.:12:11.
:12:11.:12:14.

will power 1000 homes. We want to create jobs, not destroy jobs would.

:12:14.:12:20.

But the leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, has warned that green

:12:20.:12:26.

energy comes at a cost. The biggest con jobs I have seen in 50 years is

:12:26.:12:30.

the whole renewable energy game and in particular wind turbine is. What

:12:30.:12:35.

we do is be take money of poor people, they put in a 15 %

:12:35.:12:40.

surcharge on everybody's energy bill. But the renewables industry

:12:40.:12:45.

has hit back. The it is good clean energy. It does not have a cupboard

:12:45.:12:49.

footprint. It creates high quality jobs for British workers at British

:12:49.:12:53.

businesses, which I presume is something that UKIP would support.

:12:53.:12:58.

The challenge for many voters could involve separating scientific facts

:12:59.:13:08.
:13:09.:13:09.

from Spain. -- from Spain. What do you think about renewable

:13:09.:13:19.
:13:19.:13:30.

energy? Will it create jobs? Bears There is more information on the

:13:31.:13:38.

local elections on our website. Figures show that Bridlington Spa

:13:38.:13:43.

has lost over �800,000 since his �20 million refurbishment four

:13:43.:13:48.

:15:25.:15:31.

The problem is, if she blocks the dull ones there will be none left!

:15:31.:15:39.

The weather looks like slowly improving. It will turn rather

:15:39.:15:46.

cloudy but brighter at times tomorrow. It will be drier than

:15:46.:15:55.

today. A week occluded front will keep conditions slowly improving.

:15:55.:16:00.

We have had an awful lot of cloud on the satellite picture today. It

:16:00.:16:10.
:16:10.:16:13.

is bringing drizzle to many places in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. A

:16:13.:16:19.

lot of places could become dry will stop temperatures of around seven

:16:29.:16:37.

Celsius. There is a moderate north- A great start. Perhaps damp with a

:16:37.:16:43.

little drizzle in places. The cloud will tend to start to break up.

:16:43.:16:48.

Still be able cloud into the afternoon and one or two showers

:16:48.:16:52.

but brighter than today and some sunshine is expected in quite a few

:16:52.:16:58.

places. It will feel cooler along the coast. Inland with a bit of

:16:58.:17:04.

brightness temperatures will rise to 13 Celsius. Thursday will have a

:17:04.:17:08.

damp start with a lot of cloud but it should brighten up a little bit.

:17:08.:17:14.

There will be patchy rain on Friday. Drier brighter and cooler over the

:17:14.:17:21.

weekend. Can I just say, blue and yellow is not the new uniform, it

:17:21.:17:31.
:17:31.:17:31.

is just bad planning. We did not get dressed together! Go away! A

:17:31.:17:34.

family from Lincolnshire have been speaking about the millions of

:17:34.:17:39.

pounds of compensation they have received for their daughter in a

:17:39.:17:45.

negligence claim against their daughter. She was awarded �10.8

:17:45.:17:49.

million at the High Court for around-the-clock here for the rest

:17:49.:17:56.

of her life. She is aged 11. She suffered a preventable seizure at

:17:57.:18:04.

the neonatal unit in Lincolnshire in 2001. Can you tell me what you

:18:04.:18:14.
:18:14.:18:19.

want for lunch? AUTOMATED VOICE: Ham sandwich. A mistake by hospital

:18:19.:18:24.

staff when this girl was born has left her unable to speak and

:18:25.:18:32.

wheelchair-bound. The equipment was faulty so they had no idea that

:18:32.:18:38.

things were going wrong. When they did realise and that it was an

:18:38.:18:46.

emergency they were delayed. Those delays caused the brain damage.

:18:46.:18:52.

has cerebral palsy and needs 24 hour care. Her father, a former Red

:18:52.:18:57.

Arrows pilot, had to give up his job in the air force to help look

:18:57.:19:04.

after her. If you have a disabled child your life changes utterly.

:19:04.:19:09.

There is so much extra you have to do for the child. We have to be

:19:09.:19:15.

there every single moment for her. Lincoln hospital has accepted

:19:15.:19:20.

liability for what has happened and yesterday the family were in court

:19:20.:19:27.

as a judge awarded �11.5 million in compensation. She has very

:19:27.:19:31.

significant needs and we had to appoint experts to assess those

:19:31.:19:36.

needs, how much they would need for care, travel, accommodation and

:19:36.:19:41.

therapy needs. We just do not have to worry now, we have got toys in

:19:41.:19:48.

the kind of equipment we would get which is just so reassuring. They

:19:48.:19:53.

now plan to build a specially adapted home to meet their

:19:53.:19:57.

daughter's needs and make her life as happy and comfortable as they

:19:57.:20:06.

can. Why is this settlement so large? The sheer size of this

:20:06.:20:11.

payout reflects the severity of the girl's needs. As you saw in my

:20:11.:20:15.

report she needs gear for the rest of her life around the clock. This

:20:15.:20:20.

money will help to pay for that care and equipment as well as an

:20:20.:20:26.

new family home. Lincoln County Hospital and the hospital trust

:20:26.:20:31.

have offered this family their unreserved apology. The EC since

:20:31.:20:34.

2001 they have changed their working practices so that nothing

:20:34.:20:42.

like this can ever happen again. -- the sea. Now every town, village

:20:42.:20:47.

and city could soon be controlled by a new traffic wardens. Police

:20:47.:20:53.

are passing ticketing duties to the county council. When this happened

:20:53.:20:57.

in the East Riding the number of tickets issued a rose by 400 %.

:20:57.:21:04.

Some businesses are worried that their customers will be driven away.

:21:04.:21:08.

In Louth town centre illegal parking like this is common. In the

:21:08.:21:12.

narrow streets it can cause congestion but local police say

:21:12.:21:16.

they do not have the resources to deal with the problem effectively.

:21:16.:21:20.

I could put all of my officers in there for a week and we could clear

:21:20.:21:24.

it but then we would go back the following week and it would be

:21:24.:21:29.

exactly the same as before. county council is to take over

:21:29.:21:33.

enforcement and the plan to get tough across the county. We will

:21:34.:21:37.

carry out a higher level of enforcement and rethinks certainly

:21:37.:21:43.

at first there will be an increase in tickets. In the East Riding when

:21:43.:21:50.

a similar system came in ticketing went up 400 %. Businesses are

:21:50.:21:54.

worried their business will be driven away. People will be

:21:54.:21:58.

frightened to pop into the shop leaving their cars outside. It will

:21:59.:22:08.

affect us. Some are interested in the enforcement. Effect slows down

:22:08.:22:13.

the traffic it will be good for everybody, customers, shoppers,

:22:13.:22:17.

businesses accept a but I think of they are going to do that they have

:22:17.:22:22.

to provide reasonable parking elsewhere in the town so that they

:22:22.:22:32.

do not drive our customers away. These days may soon be over. If you

:22:32.:22:38.

have some thoughts on this, is bad driving blighting your community,

:22:38.:22:44.

do you welcome more enforcement? There is a reminder of our text and

:22:44.:22:49.

e-mail address. A woman who lost the use of her legs and learned to

:22:49.:22:53.

walk again thanks to an East Yorkshire invention is now halfway

:22:53.:22:58.

through completing the London Marathon. She is using a special

:22:58.:23:04.

robotic suit. She has passed the halfway point. She has also passed

:23:04.:23:11.

a target of raising �50,000. An East Yorkshire sailor has shown

:23:11.:23:16.

Look North some footage from a stricken round the World Yacht race

:23:16.:23:22.

just there for a giant wave hit his boat. He said it was like a scene

:23:22.:23:29.

from Titanic when he was forced to take cover. The dramatic journey

:23:29.:23:36.

was caught on camera. The pictures show the fine line between

:23:36.:23:41.

adventure and tragedy. 40 foot waves battered B crew. On the right

:23:41.:23:47.

of the picture almost one member was thrown overboard before another

:23:47.:23:51.

crew member scrambles across, risking their own life, to stop

them. You can imagine the power, it just comes straight over the top.

:23:58.:24:02.

This man from Yorkshire wanted to be involved in the round the world

:24:02.:24:09.

yacht race as part of a retirement project but his trip of a lifetime

:24:09.:24:15.

became a near-death experience. They shouted weave when they saw it

:24:15.:24:22.

coming and told us to drop. It was mayhem. That mayhem was caused as a

:24:22.:24:28.

giant wave struck the boat, completely destroying deep Steering

:24:29.:24:36.

and injuring four crew members. Below deck, David faced his own

:24:36.:24:46.
:24:46.:24:48.

frightening ordeal. Water -- then, alarms were all going off. Stuff

:24:48.:24:54.

that was weighed down flew across the place. It was like a water

:24:54.:25:00.

cannon. It was earth-shattering. was an agonising wait to hear that

:25:00.:25:06.

he was OK for David's family. not expect this sort of thing to

:25:06.:25:13.

happen. I knew it could but I did not expect it, it was a real shock.

:25:13.:25:23.

A his next retirement adventure is unlikely to be a cruise! Now a

:25:23.:25:26.

recap of the main national and regional headlines. A damning

:25:26.:25:32.

report from a committee of MPs says Rupert Murdoch is not fit to run a

:25:32.:25:40.

major corporation. Adair disease has reduced two previously healthy

:25:40.:25:50.
:25:50.:25:51.

brothers to a childlike State. And talking about the renewables in

:25:51.:25:55.

energy, someone tweeted to say renewable energy is a short-term

:25:55.:26:01.

job creator with a short term high price. It is only did it the whole

:26:02.:26:08.
