build a wind farm with almost three hundred turbines off the
Lincolnshire coast has been told to expect massive opposition to its
plans to bring the electricity it creates onshore. RWE has revealed
new details on where it thinks it could lay 25 miles of cable and
build an electricity station the size of 30 football pitches. It
says it will bring hundreds of jobs to the area at Bicker near Boston.
Off the Lincolnshire coast line, developers say it will look
something like this, only visible on the distant horizon. It is on
land where the public's concerned are beginning to show focus. We are
fed up with these kind of companies and corporations making lots of
money from public subsidies, trashing our countryside. They will
not get away with it. The power generated will come ashore on by a
cabling under the seabed. It will be transferred to to an electrical
compounded Skegness. 25 miles will be laid under the Lincolnshire
countryside to way sub-station the size of 30 football pitches. The
developers say the power generated could enter the National Grid by
the end of the decade. The amount of power which can be produced by
the complex is really important for the UK economy. It is still in the
planning stage, the scale of the project is difficult to imagine.
Out at sea, 288 wind turbine is, generating enough energy to power
850,000 homes. A project that will create more than 300 permanent jobs.
In the village close to where the sub-station could be billed,
residents need convincing. I did not find it acceptable. It puts a
big blot on the village. There is no way you can put a structure of
that size down on to defend, people love that landscape. For many, it

planning procedure. A promise that Lincolnshire County Council that
they will fight the application to the nail. There is growing
controversy in the towns and villages. The developers are very
keen to try and reassure people when they go out to public
consultation in a fortnight's time. Let's not forget the coastline
still has a further five wind farm as going through planning
procedures. The damage to our environment may be a recurring
theme. -- wind farms. We'd love to hear your thoughts on
this one. Is the disruption to the countryside a price worth paying
In a moment: Patient care is the top priority says the hospital
trust accused of putting targets Two men have been arrested on
suspicion of killing James Brodie as police continue their search for
his body on farmland in Lincolnshire. Mr Brodie went
missing ten years ago - he was wanted for the fatal shooting of a
jeweller in Nottingham. Police believe he too has been killed.
Specialist teams have been searching for Mr Brodie's body in
East Heckington near Sleaford for the last several days. Gemma Dawson
is there tonight - Gemma what's been happening with the search
today? We are now at the end of day three of the search, - has been a
lot of activity in the grounds of the property behind me. -- that has
been. Search teams have left for the day, and the police are
searching again the morning. Day three of a windswept farm, the
search for remains of a murder suspect. Police brought in radar
equipment that can search under ground. We have been supported by
the Centre for Applied Science and Technology, they have been using
techniques to penetrate under the ground. They are looking for this
man, James Brady, who has been missing for more than nine years.
Tonight, two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder. We have a -
- and rested two men, one was initially from Nottingham. Police
believe that the killers were involved in the murder because of a
bungled robbery on a jeweller's shop. There is a lot more work to
be done for the remains, experts are still planning where to start
digging in the grounds of this vast farmyard property. I'm told the
search could continue until the end of the week.
A search will begin again tomorrow for a dog walker who went missing
in Lincolnshire two days ago. David Leman - who is fifty-one - had
taken his dog for a walk near the coast in Skegness on Monday morning.
The dog was later found alive. Police have spent today searching
the salt marshes around Gibraltar Point.
The new Chief Constable of Humberside Police will be Justine
Curran. Her appointment was confirmed this morning by the
Police and Crime Panel. Justine Curran has more than 20 years
experience, and is currently the Chief Constable with Tayside Police.
She's also a graduate of the University of Hull. She will
replace Tim Hollis who's retiring in March after eight years in the
job. Justine Curran was questioned for
an hour and half by members of the Humberside Police and Crime Panel.
She was the commissioner, Matthew Grove's choice. But before agreeing
to her appointment, they quizzed her on a whole range of issues from
PSCOs to privatisation. And it is a whole new era, and I'll be working
in partnership with the commissioners, and my priorities
are about how we can have delivered the police and crime plan which she
has consulted on widely among Steve region, which represents all the
things you want to achieve. Other parts of the stats which you want
to improve on? They have done a lot, but there is more to do. The
figures are quite high. We need to look at the causes, and how we can
stop people being subject to violence. Ms Curran will take over
from retiring Tim Hollis. The Police Federation, which represents
officers, says his are big shoes to fill. They want the same strong
leadership and support at a time when the force is facing savings of
�30million by 2016. We expect strong leadership, fairness, and to
maintain police numbers to provide an effective presence on the street.
We want them to be investigation capable, which is what the people
of the region deserve. So do the public have ideas for the new chief
constable? We gauged opinion about police performance on the Orchard
Park Estate in Hull. This estate has seen some investment in recent
years. If you look at Statistics, There are still policing challenges

Today's report into failings at Stafford hospital says that care
and compassion is being overlooked, and other hospitals could also be
failing. A former health manager says that hospitals are still
prioritising targets over patients' safety. Nursing leaders say that

spokesperson for the trust said a new management team came into place
two years ago and many steps have been taken to improve the care
provided. But unexpectedly high death rates are a problem that many
local hospitals are having to tackle still. Nicky Moreton works
at Scunthorpe General in critical care. Hair care -- team had to

intervention is put in as fast as possible to stop patients

therefore, decreased mortality rates. Today's Francis report
called for compassionate and committed nursing so every patient
receives a patient -- the care they deserve whichever hospital they are
Earlier, I spoke to Eiri Jones, the Director of Nursing at the United
Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, and asked her if she was now concerned
about a report into Boston Pilgrim Hospital 15 months ago which
highlighted dangerously low staffing levels.
I am not worried at this point in time. We have undertaken work that
refuse ward staffing on a daily basis and we have plans in place to
make sure staffing stays. One of the main things to come out of the
France's report is that management must admit when they have failings.
You have been good at saying things that the trust are getting better
but will you admit patient care has not always been what it should have
been? It is always important to admit when something has not gone
right and that is how we work currently. It is important to focus
on that and also to say when we are doing things right as well.
nurse who works at Lincoln County Hospital could text it to say some
staff are so busy they don't know which way to turn and she says it
is unfair on staff and patients. What you say to that? We are clear
that if any staff have individual concerns they are welcome to speak
to us directly, they can speak to their senior professional lead -
either a mate and or consultant - and we want them to tell us when
they have concerns. "come passionate and committed nursing"

are one of the first to launch it internally. The three providers in
Lincolnshire have launched it together. That is something I look
for every day in all of our star -- staff, care and compassion and good
communication etc. It is fundamental in getting good care

You might have some thoughts on that. What are your experiences in

Fans of Gainsborough Trinity are planning a trip to Wales after
their latest victory which sees them move a step closer to a final
at Wembley Stadium. Trinity beat Barrow in the quarter-finals of the
FA Trophy and they will now play Wrexham in the semi-finals in ten
days' time. Amanda White reports. Could Gainsborough Trinity be
heading for Wembley? This 2-0 victory over Barrow last night
means the FA Trophy final is in touching distance. We are through
to the semi-finals and one game away from Wembley. Andrew Stothard,
who's written a book on his beloved club, hopes they're off to the
promised land. It is massive. We have never been anywhere near
Wembley. I don't think we've been passed the last 32 before. One more
round to go. The club's manager has lived the dream before, in the FA
Vase final with Brigg Town. It is a great atmosphere. Even for a small
town, we took lots of fans are and I even scored in the game. We want
more of that success. Around 400 or 500 will be here on a normal
Saturday but they hope it will be filled to capacity when Wrexham
visit in a fortnight. It's buses to Wrexham that Trevor is hoping to
fill. Fantastic. Can we use our bus pass? The last time they had some
success it did good things. Do you ever get down there? I used to go
were locked at one time and I would go on the bus. The only place I
never went was anger. Sorting out the travel sort -- falls to fan,
Trevor. We are hoping to better our last good result. With Wembley
beckoning, possibly in final against Grimsby Town, this is a
