Relief. Could you perform a routine for charity? Your detailed weekend

:01:00.:01:10.
:01:10.:01:16.

Up to 20,000 rail passengers a week will be forced to take a bus

:01:16.:01:19.

instead of a train for six weeks this summer. Network Rail is

:01:19.:01:22.

planning work on a bridge which could add up to an hour onto some

:01:23.:01:31.

journey times in and out of Hull. It means passengers travelling to

:01:31.:01:34.

West Yorkshire and on to Manchester will have to use buses between Hull

:01:34.:01:37.

and Selby while those making the journey to London will be diverted

:01:37.:01:39.

through Goole. In advance of the work, the rail

:01:40.:01:44.

companies and Network Rail are apologising. But there are already

:01:44.:01:50.

fears that business and tourism could suffer. Phil Connell is at

:01:50.:01:52.

Brough station from where passengers will be taking buses

:01:52.:01:57.

when the work is taking place. What have they been telling you? There

:01:57.:02:02.

has been a mixed response from rail passengers. I think most people

:02:02.:02:07.

accept that this work deeds to be carried out. The swing bridge at

:02:07.:02:11.

Selby has failed on several occasions in recent years, but

:02:12.:02:21.
:02:22.:02:26.

there will be no quick or easy fix to this problem. The swing bridge

:02:26.:02:33.

is a major route for passengers travelling to and from home. There

:02:33.:02:39.

it seems to be no alternative. The bridge is 160 years old and needs

:02:39.:02:45.

urgent repairs. The job of minimising the destruction falls to

:02:45.:02:53.

this man. He told me that work on the bridge was important. You get

:02:53.:02:57.

to a point where you have to keep tinkering with it. We have to do a

:02:58.:03:01.

major rebuild. This is a large project with a lot of money

:03:01.:03:09.

involved. This is an inconvenience that this couple is prepared to

:03:09.:03:14.

accept. They travel frequently from Hull to see their family in

:03:14.:03:19.

Yorkshire. You have to take account of it and realise it will take

:03:19.:03:23.

another half-hour or an hour longer and just work around it. It is not

:03:23.:03:30.

so bad if you are expecting it. Wales companies will be affected

:03:30.:03:37.

between 29th July and 8th September. -- four rail companies. Northern

disruption. Horrendous. If that is the alternative then it is not a

:03:53.:04:00.

great idea. Not very good at all. It has to be done, I suppose. What

:04:00.:04:04.

an inconvenience. Officers from Hull City Council are concerned

:04:04.:04:09.

about the impact on business and tourism. They have written to

:04:09.:04:14.

Network Rail to ask if the work can be less disruptive. Can they be

:04:14.:04:19.

done at weekends or in the evening? We are not certain. But we would

:04:19.:04:22.

rather that we were not cut off from the rest of the world for six

:04:22.:04:27.

weeks. Expect more of this. Diversions will bring an extra 30

:04:27.:04:33.

trains to the town every day. For six weeks this summer, the level

:04:33.:04:37.

crossing he will be very busy. How important is this work to the

:04:37.:04:46.

Selby swing bridge? The bridge is 160 years old and a series of small

:04:46.:04:49.

repairs have a really failed to tackle the problem. What will

:04:49.:04:53.

happen now is that this multi- million-pound project will

:04:53.:04:57.

virtually rebuilt the bridge from scratch. Most of the destruction

:04:57.:05:01.

will take place during the summer but the project will in fact take

:05:01.:05:05.

around two years to complete. In a moment: Under the hammer. An

:05:05.:05:13.

historic east coast landmark is up for sale.

:05:13.:05:16.

Supporters of gay marriage are stepping up their campaign to

:05:16.:05:19.

persuade MPs to back a change in the law. The vote to legalise same-

:05:19.:05:22.

sex marriage takes place next week. But one Lincolnshire MP says some

:05:22.:05:26.

workers could lose their jobs, if they don't agree with gay marriage.

:05:26.:05:28.

Gainsborough's Edward Leigh believes there's a danger that

:05:28.:05:31.

people in some professions could be reprimanded if they speak out

:05:31.:05:40.

against the proposals. More from our Political Editor Tim Iredale.

:05:40.:05:43.

Sharing memories are friends Ian Bower and Kelly Hubbard, who live

:05:43.:05:50.

with their respective partners in Lincoln. They're both in civil

:05:50.:05:53.

partnerships, but hope the law will soon allow them to marry their

:05:53.:06:03.

other halves. For a section of society, probably 10 % of society,

:06:03.:06:07.

they are being denied the right to get married, something that

:06:07.:06:11.

heterosexual people have taken for granted for hundreds of years. That

:06:11.:06:16.

is a question of equality. I am very happy being in my relationship

:06:16.:06:22.

with my partner but it is not equal and I do not think it is viewed by

:06:22.:06:27.

the general population as being equal. You say you are married and

:06:27.:06:32.

people have certain viewpoints on marriage already, whereas there is

:06:32.:06:42.
:06:42.:06:45.

no historical stigma attached to partnership as opposed to marriage.

:06:45.:06:48.

More than 100 Conservative MPs are expected to oppose the government's

:06:48.:06:50.

proposals when same-sex marriage is debated in the Commons on Tuesday,

:06:50.:06:52.

including many Tories from Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. But

:06:52.:06:55.

opponents of the bill are seeking assurances from the government that

:06:55.:06:58.

people who continue to believe in the traditional definition of

:06:58.:07:02.

marriage shouldn't be penalised for their views. Conservative Edward

:07:02.:07:05.

Leigh wants to amend the Equality Act to protect professions such as

:07:05.:07:15.
:07:15.:07:18.

teaching. There is a real danger that if the government succeeds in

:07:18.:07:21.

redefining marriage and next week and same-sex marriage comes in,

:07:21.:07:25.

teachers will feel an obligation to say that a gay marriage is just as

:07:25.:07:35.

equal and just as valid as traditional marriage. Kimmeridge

:07:35.:07:41.

still divides opinion. -- gay marriage still divides opinion.

:07:41.:07:47.

believe in gay marriage. Not in a church. I am not religious or

:07:47.:07:53.

anything but I just don't agree with it. Simple as that. Despite

:07:53.:07:55.

opposition from some, MPs look certain to support same-sex

:07:55.:07:58.

marriage, changing for ever the way this ancient institution is

:07:58.:08:06.

recognised by law. Luke Tryl is from a group which

:08:06.:08:15.

campaigns for gay and lesbian rights. He joins me now from London.

:08:15.:08:23.

Is this amendment needed? Absolut Lee not. -- absolutely not. The

:08:23.:08:27.

minister trying to push this through has been absolutely Queer

:08:27.:08:32.

that teachers will still be able to express -- absolutely clear that

:08:32.:08:35.

teachers will still be able to express their beliefs about a

:08:35.:08:40.

marriage under the proposals that are being put forward. Obviously,

:08:40.:08:45.

it would be very odd if equal marriage goes through if teachers

:08:45.:08:52.

deny it exists entirely. I do not think Michael Gove's initiative

:08:52.:08:57.

will mean that teachers are actively telling lies. Should

:08:57.:09:03.

teachers still be able -- expected to educate on this issue? Teachers

:09:03.:09:08.

should be there to educate young people about the world around them,

:09:08.:09:12.

and that means recognising that marriage exists for straight people

:09:12.:09:16.

and hopefully will exist for gay people as well. But that does not

:09:16.:09:20.

mean that they cannot express that some religions believe that

:09:20.:09:25.

marriage remains between a man and a woman. A housing worker has

:09:25.:09:35.
:09:35.:09:37.

already been demoted because of comments he made about gay marriage.

:09:37.:09:45.

Edward Leigh has a point doesn't he? He took this to court and he

:09:45.:09:51.

found that he was entirely entitled to express his beliefs. We do not

:09:51.:10:00.

need to go back and demand anything yet to change the law. Should

:10:00.:10:05.

teachers be reprimanded? Teachers in faith schools should be able to

:10:05.:10:10.

express the views of certain views on marriage. If a teacher was

:10:10.:10:14.

actively denying that gay marriage existed, then they would be doing

:10:14.:10:18.

their students a great disservice. My view about teachers is that they

:10:18.:10:22.

are there to prepare young people to go into the world around them

:10:22.:10:28.

and they are there to make people well-rounded citizens. Very

:10:28.:10:38.
:10:38.:10:41.

interesting to chat with you and your views. Do you have a duty to

:10:41.:10:48.

acknowledge same-sex marriage? Your thoughts on this, for teachers and

:10:48.:10:55.

others, it can be sent to us 3 E- mail, text or telephone. -- to us

:11:05.:11:07.

And Tim will be back with the Sunday Politics, from eleven on

:11:07.:11:10.

Sunday morning on BBC One. Guests include Cleethorpes MP Martin

:11:10.:11:15.

Vickers and Hull North MP Diana Johnson.

:11:15.:11:25.
:11:25.:11:27.

We'd love to hear your views on this story.

:11:27.:11:30.

People in Hornsea have been given more than �350,000 to refurbish and

:11:30.:11:33.

run the town's Floral Hall. Campaigners prevented it being

:11:34.:11:38.

bulldozed when they agreed to take it over from the local authority.

:11:38.:11:41.

East Riding of Yorkshire council is now giving them the money to help

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:11:59.

Market Rasen has been named as having the UK's best small

:11:59.:12:02.

speciality market. It's won the award from the National Association

:12:02.:12:04.

of British Market Authorities. The organisers were congratulated on

:12:04.:12:06.

their pioneering local entrepreneurship and for creating a

:12:06.:12:09.

theme to each market. Humberside Police is to close down

:12:09.:12:12.

its Police Horse section, saving the force �2 million over the next

:12:12.:12:18.

four years. It's the latest example of how they're sharing some of

:12:18.:12:23.

their services with neighbouring forces. The Chief Constable says he

:12:23.:12:26.

needs to protect front line policing as Sarah Corker reports.

:12:26.:12:32.

A centuries old method of crowd control. They're a common sight at

:12:32.:12:35.

football matches, public protests and on nights out. But from March

:12:35.:12:43.

next year, Humberside Police's Mounted Section will be no more.

:12:43.:12:49.

Its Chief Constable said it's too expensive to maintain. Given the

:12:49.:12:53.

scale of budget cuts this force has to make, the amount of money we

:12:54.:12:57.

will save after removing the branch after 12 months is a key

:12:57.:13:02.

contributor, and if we do not cut it, we will have to get into some

:13:02.:13:11.

real core pits of frontline policing. The unit currently has

:13:11.:13:16.

six horses. In the future it will buy in mounted officers when needed.

:13:16.:13:19.

Sharing resources between neighbouring forces is seen as a

:13:19.:13:24.

way to save money. Last year, the four Yorkshire dive teams were

:13:24.:13:27.

combined into one county wide unit. While two years ago, Humberside and

:13:27.:13:29.

South Yorkshire Police merged their HR and training departments. And

:13:29.:13:32.

nationally there are plans to create a country-wide police air

:13:32.:13:37.

service. Big budget cuts mean forces face tough choices.

:13:37.:13:42.

courses are a frontline police source and this is a case of the

:13:42.:13:46.

austerity measures that the police are facing. This is a loss, and the

:13:47.:13:52.

only way we can get that the source now is if we try to buy it in from

:13:52.:13:59.

another force. What this damage the ability of the force to deal with

:13:59.:14:03.

public order problems in the future? No, not at all. Fewer than

:14:03.:14:11.

a quarter of the police forces have -- police forces in England and

:14:11.:14:15.

Wales have mounted forces. Humberside Police has to save up to

:14:15.:14:18.

�25 million over the next four years and today wouldn't rule

:14:18.:14:22.

sharing other resources in the future.

:14:22.:14:31.

Still ahead tonight: The new Rugby League arrivals hoping to make

:14:31.:14:39.

waves in Super League. If he has a son and does not call him one, he

:14:39.:14:44.

her friend has made a picture of you that she has stuck to her door.

:15:52.:15:55.

across the East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The showers will

:15:55.:16:02.

creep down eastern parts of the area. Increasingly, there could be

:16:02.:16:07.

some hail, and do not be surprised if you wake up to a slight covering

:16:07.:16:11.

of snow by the end of the night at, especially towards the coastal

everywhere will be cheery and sunny for Saturday afternoon and drive.

:16:53.:17:00.

It's a cold night on Sunday night and we will seek some -- we will

:17:00.:17:05.

see some snow. Next week looks cold and windy with showers of rain and

:17:05.:17:15.
:17:15.:17:19.

slow -- snow and sleet. That is the Have a nice way again. See you

:17:19.:17:26.

:17:26.:17:28.

One of North East Lincolnshire's most famous landmarks goes up for

:17:28.:17:31.

auction tomorrow. Cleethorpes Pier has a guide price of �400,000 and

:17:31.:17:34.

bids are expected to come from across the UK. Many local people

:17:34.:17:37.

would like to see the new owner turn it in to an entertainment

:17:37.:17:40.

venue attracting big acts to the town. Tarah Welsh reports.

:17:40.:17:47.

It's been standing here for 140 years. And now it's up for sale.

:17:48.:17:55.

Most recently the pier's been used as a night club. This brings us out

:17:55.:18:01.

to the main pavilion and bar entrance. The auction is being held

:18:01.:18:05.

on the pier and those behind it say there's a been lots of interest in

:18:05.:18:11.

such a rare opportunity. Over the past few years there has certainly

:18:11.:18:16.

then three available for sale. It is immaculate in its condition,

:18:16.:18:20.

whereas the previous two appears that have been offered on the

:18:20.:18:25.

suckers have been derelict shells. Pier sale costs are rarely

:18:26.:18:30.

disclosed, but more than 20 years ago this one sold for �1 million.

:18:31.:18:34.

Back in 1873 it was built for just �8,000 and was a huge tourist

:18:34.:18:42.

attraction. 30 years later it was destroyed by fire, but it was fully

:18:42.:18:45.

restored and has since hosted some famous names including the band

:18:45.:18:51.

Blur. He whoever buys this peer will be buying their own little bit

:18:51.:18:57.

of history. During the Second World War, it was taken down to stop the

:18:57.:19:01.

enemy from getting too sure. Now this is the shortest peer in the

:19:01.:19:08.

whole country. And it's one of just 37 piers still in private hands.

:19:08.:19:13.

First and foremost, we do not want to see it right away. If you

:19:13.:19:17.

compare its two Winter Gardens, that wasn't there as a car park,

:19:18.:19:22.

and we do not have -- and we do not want to have it what a way. We want

:19:22.:19:29.

to use it for pantomime. The chuckle Brothers could come.

:19:29.:19:32.

Whether it will sell and who to, is impossible to predict, But it's

:19:32.:19:35.

hoped a new owner will bring a bright future to this much loved

:19:35.:19:45.
:19:45.:19:50.

landmark. Let's hope it goes to a good owner.

:19:51.:19:53.

Rugby League's new Super League season begins tonight with 14 teams

:19:53.:19:56.

all hoping they'll be crowned champions in October. Hull FC are

:19:56.:19:59.

involved in the first match tonight at Leeds. Along with Hull KR, Hull

:19:59.:20:02.

have brought in new players, hoping to improve on last season. Our

:20:02.:20:05.

sports reporter Simon Clark is live at Headingley. Simon, how important

:20:05.:20:12.

is 2013 to the sport of Rugby League? It is absolutely vital.

:20:12.:20:19.

Cobol and rugby were pushed out last year due to the Olympics. --

:20:19.:20:24.

football. There is a big season coming up. I have met up with a

:20:24.:20:31.

player who is looking to make a name for himself. It is a day off

:20:31.:20:37.

of training, so this player is enjoying family time with his wife

:20:37.:20:46.

and his two-year-old son. But it is a homecoming as well. His

:20:46.:20:56.
:20:56.:21:00.

grandparents and even his great grandmother live in Liverpool.

:21:00.:21:04.

suppose a British passport helps with getting everyone down here. It

:21:04.:21:12.

has been good. He is really tough and aggressive and uncompromising.

:21:12.:21:17.

I thought that was very valuable. I thought that was what we lacked

:21:17.:21:23.

last year. He is one of the key signings this year along with one

:21:23.:21:32.

from London and one from Huddersfield. Across the city, an

:21:32.:21:37.

Australian man has been signed, and has been welcomed by one of his

:21:37.:21:42.

oldest friends. It is good to be back with him and playing with him

:21:42.:21:46.

again. He is a natural half-back and that is what we have lacked,

:21:46.:21:51.

someone to take control of the team and be able to have a good kicking

:21:51.:21:59.

game. Everyone we have got on board brings something to the table. It

:21:59.:22:04.

is a team sport. The familiar sight of the trophy being lifted is

:22:04.:22:09.

something that all of the players are trying to prevent, and players

:22:09.:22:19.
:22:19.:22:20.

be with the big fish of the season. You introduced us to some of the

:22:24.:22:28.

new stars for both Hull sides in the report. Will they win some

:22:28.:22:38.
:22:38.:22:41.

Hull have made it their mission statement to be at the top four.

:22:41.:22:45.

That shows their level of high ambition. I can tell you that they

:22:45.:22:51.

had just opened the gates here at Headingley. A handful of us -- a

:22:51.:22:55.

handful of fans are drifting in. A look at the Big Clock out there and

:22:55.:22:59.

it tells us that we have just over one hour ago to the Super League

:22:59.:23:07.

season. How -- one hour to go. For The Hull City manager Steve Bruce

:23:07.:23:10.

says he's disappointed at the behaviour of a player he was trying

:23:10.:23:13.

to sign. Bruce claims while he thought striker DJ Campbell was in

:23:13.:23:16.

negotiations with the Tigers, the player was actually driving across

:23:16.:23:26.
:23:26.:23:26.

the Pennines to talk to Blackburn. Live go the way they handled the

:23:26.:23:31.

whole situation, to say they regard -- the way they handled the whole

situation, to say they were going for lunch, and then to be gone for
