North. The headlines tonight: Presenting a united front - the men

:00:07.:00:13.

in charge of policing Lincolnshire insist it's business as usual.

:00:13.:00:17.

Hardwick and I are both firmly committed to improving the quality

:00:17.:00:23.

of policing in this county. Cattle farmers in our area are told they

:00:23.:00:29.

must act to stop TB spreading. have got to work as a community and

:00:29.:00:34.

in that way they will keep it out. royal seal of approval - the

:00:34.:00:39.

Lincolnshire school that has been opened by the Duke of Edinburgh. And

:00:49.:01:00.

the choir that's singing it's way in Lincolnshire Police and tonight

:01:00.:01:03.

the Chief Constable and the Police and Crime Commissioner say they are

:01:13.:01:21.

the spread of bovine tuberculosis. Our rural affairs correspondent is

:01:22.:01:27.

at a farm near caster. What is being done to help the farmers tackle the

:01:27.:01:32.

disease? The Government are spending �15. 5 million on trying to develop

:01:32.:01:37.

a vaccine to protect animals. They have granted two culls in the South

:01:37.:01:41.

West, where TB is rife and it is believed that badgers are causing

:01:42.:01:48.

that. Some research suggests that. DEFRA have given permission to use

:01:48.:01:55.

trials for night vision CCTV to help with badgers and help them when they

:01:55.:01:59.

are carrying out the culls. Because TB isn't in Lincolnshire yet, the

:01:59.:02:09.
:02:09.:02:15.

precautions are different, but just as important. It looks like a scene

:02:15.:02:17.

from the foot-and-mouth crisis, farmers disinfecting their boots in

:02:18.:02:20.

fear of infection. But as tuberculosis in cattle creeps closer

:02:20.:02:23.

to Lincolnshire, farmers are being warned to take precautions. It is

:02:23.:02:27.

like a silent killer. You don't know where it is, you don't know what is

:02:27.:02:29.

happening. The little precautions that we can take now are probably

:02:29.:02:33.

going to be painful, but not as painful as if tuberculosis gets into

:02:33.:02:36.

this county. It is going to devastate a business, an industry -

:02:36.:02:39.

it's going to be awful. Some scientific research has linked

:02:39.:02:44.

badgers to the spread of TB. But culls have only been approved in the

:02:45.:02:49.

South West. That means in Lincolnshire our only defence is

:02:49.:02:51.

diligence. That means being incredibly sure where your cattle

:02:51.:02:54.

come from, incredibly sure what their TB status is and being doubly

:02:54.:02:59.

sure that you don't bring it into the county. Because that is how it

:02:59.:03:02.

with will come, it will come in a cattle lorry. Last year 5.5 million

:03:02.:03:05.

TB tests were carried out in England. 28,000 cows were

:03:05.:03:08.

slaughtered as a result of testing positive and in the last decade,

:03:08.:03:11.

�500 million of taxpayers' money has been spent on trying to control this

:03:11.:03:21.
:03:21.:03:21.

disease. Vet James Russell has been advising Lincolnshire farmers on how

:03:21.:03:26.

to stay TB-free. Today, he is testing cattle outside of the

:03:26.:03:32.

county. At the moment this animal doesn't look like she is going to

:03:32.:03:35.

pass, sorry mate. This animal is just ten months old and was destined

:03:35.:03:41.

to stay on the farm for breeding. This is about the hardest part of my

:03:41.:03:44.

job. I'm telling Nick now that any animals he had ready for selling, he

:03:44.:03:49.

can't sell. That is over and above the loss of the animal that is going

:03:49.:03:55.

to be taken off and slaughtered for TB. It's not a nice part of the job.

:03:55.:03:58.

Everyone's talking about the price of food going up. Well why? There

:03:58.:04:01.

was nearly 10% less cattle killed last year, no wonder beef's more

:04:02.:04:06.

money, because there's less of it. And it is dirty, it's dangerous,

:04:06.:04:09.

it's demoralising if I had known what my career as a cattle farmers

:04:09.:04:14.

was going to be 20 year ago, I would have gone into banking. The NFU

:04:14.:04:17.

warns if Lincolnshire farmers want to be avoid being in the same

:04:17.:04:26.

situation as Nick they must take bio-security seriously. James

:04:26.:04:31.

Russell, the vet you saw there said it is possible if Lincolnshire

:04:31.:04:33.

farmers work together to lock Lincolnshire down against this, but

:04:33.:04:38.

he said it would only take a few rogue farmers acting irresponsibly

:04:38.:04:44.

to let this disease creep in. And if it did, not only would it cripple

:04:44.:04:49.

cattle farming, but it would push beef prices up at the supermarket,

:04:49.:04:56.

which unless you're a vegetarian, is not good for anyone. Thank you. Now

:04:56.:05:00.

concern is growing for a 76-year-old woman who has not been seen for more

:05:00.:05:05.

Nan a week. Dorothy Brewster was reported missing on Monday. Police

:05:06.:05:09.

say she doesn't have any of her medication and her family have

:05:10.:05:16.

appealed for information. A legal challenge to try and stop an out of

:05:16.:05:21.

town shopping park being built in Scunthorpe has been dismissed.

:05:21.:05:25.

Planning permission for the �20 million development was granted a

:05:25.:05:30.

year ago. But opponents said the plans would damage businesses in the

:05:30.:05:33.

town centre. They were refused permission to take the case to the

:05:33.:05:40.

Lords. Hundreds of people have lined the streets of Bourne for the viz

:05:40.:05:50.

tit othe -- visit of the Duke of Edinburgh. A small cheer, then

:05:50.:05:54.

silence as the Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Bourne. He is the most

:05:54.:05:59.

senior royal to visit the town and he is here to open this school's new

:05:59.:06:04.

building. Wow, it's just amazing! I mean I never thought he would come

:06:04.:06:10.

here. It has been nice he has come, because he has a lot of other things

:06:10.:06:17.

to do. I think it is special he has come here in a little town and is

:06:17.:06:23.

acknowledging our centre. The Duke has now headed inside the school and

:06:23.:06:28.

will spend an hour having a look around the new touring centre, which

:06:28.:06:36.

has new computers and new classrooms. It was a delight. The

:06:36.:06:41.

students were delighted, he was on great form. He is great company and

:06:41.:06:48.

a nice guy. guy. Est a number of hospital visits last year. --

:06:48.:06:52.

Despite some hospital visits last year, the Duke is not slowing down.

:06:52.:06:58.

Yesterday he was at the funeral of Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first

:06:58.:07:04.

female Prime Minister who grew up in Grantham. It was brilliant. I didn't

:07:04.:07:08.

get to talk to him, but he seemed very approachable. He asked me about

:07:08.:07:13.

my project and how it works and I took him through it. He was happy to

:07:13.:07:19.

see what we were doing. He asked if I rode to school on my bike. Said I

:07:19.:07:26.

catch the bus. He said you're very lazy. And I laughed. After an hour,

:07:26.:07:30.

the Duke emerged from the school. Students waited to take his

:07:30.:07:38.

photograph. A reminder o' after day here many will never forget. A big

day for Bourne. Cardboard police officers are being used at Hull

royal infirmary to twrie try and cut down on crime. Its hoped they will

:07:50.:07:54.

act as a deterrent and a calming influence. Our correspondent has

:07:54.:08:03.

been to find out more. This is the hi-tech approach to security at

:08:03.:08:13.

Hull's hospitals. 120 cameras monitoring visitors. But this weapon

:08:13.:08:18.

is less hi-tech. The cardboard police officers are an added measure

:08:18.:08:23.

to help as a calming measure. than a quarter of hospital staff

:08:23.:08:29.

have reported incidents of abuse and harassment. It is hoped the new cut

:08:29.:08:34.

price coppers will help reduce such behaviour. Hospital have reported

:08:34.:08:39.

they seem to have a reduction in anti-social behaviour incidents

:08:39.:08:43.

reported in those locations where the cut outs has been used. It is

:08:43.:08:48.

early day and we have not got figures to support that. But it

:08:48.:08:52.

seeps positive. The cut outs are already a common sight in local

:08:52.:08:58.

stores. But are they a good idea for our hospitals? The amount of people

:08:58.:09:04.

that are watching you, they are looking at you. I have noticed them

:09:04.:09:08.

in the supermarket and it does just make you think. So I think they are

:09:08.:09:14.

a bit of a deterrent. These police officers are just �57 each w the

:09:14.:09:19.

cost shared between the police and the NHS. Both say it is a small

:09:19.:09:25.

price to pay for safer hospitals. Well you might have a view on that.

:09:25.:09:35.
:09:35.:09:52.

If you want to be in touch, just Or is it policing on the cheap?

are still gusting in the 40 to 50mph range, but they will ease and

:11:35.:11:39.

tomorrow we have a damp start. But it will brighten up and become a

:11:39.:11:45.

nice day. A ridge of high pressure. This will be with us over the top on

:11:45.:11:49.

Saturday. Saturday will be the best day of the weekend. This front may

spoil things later on sonned. -- Sunday. But the first part of Sunday

:11:54.:11:58.

will be fine. There is the satellite. We have some sharp

:11:58.:12:03.

showers. There is one in sot Yorkshire and may come into

:12:03.:12:06.

Lincolnshire tonight. Elsewhere there is a lot of bright and windy,

:12:06.:12:11.

but sunny weather. The showers will die away and it becomes dry with

:12:11.:12:15.

clear spells, breakfast this front brings -- before this front brings

:12:15.:12:25.
:12:25.:12:27.

rain. So a wet period to come. the sun will rise in the morning.

:12:27.:12:35.

That is around 5 to 6. High water in Cleethorpes at 25 to 1. A damp start

:12:35.:12:41.

with rain in Lincolnshire. But it clears southwards. And then skies

:12:41.:12:46.

brighten and the afternoon looks pleasant. Dry with some sunshine. A

:12:46.:12:51.

cool on shore breeze, but inland it shouldn't feel too bad and less

:12:51.:12:57.

windy than it has been today. Top temperatures 11 Celsius. Saturday, a

:12:57.:13:01.

lovely day, light winds and dry with sunshine. A fine start on Sunday.

:13:21.:13:26.

you tomorrow. They are the two most powerful men in Lincolnshire police

:13:26.:13:31.

and the Chief Constable and the crime commissioner say they are

:13:31.:13:36.

focussed on working together. It's the first time Neil Rhodes has

:13:36.:13:38.

spoken about Alan Hardwick's decision to suspend him, a decision

:13:38.:13:41.

which was eventually over turned by a High Court judge. Today they have

:13:42.:13:44.

appeared in public together as it appeared in public together as it

:13:44.:13:50.

was announced that crime is down in Two men, one message. That the crime

:13:50.:13:55.

rate is down in Lincolnshire. But beneath the smiles, there is a

:13:55.:13:59.

history. Alan Hardwick suspended the acting Chief Constable over conduct

:13:59.:14:02.

matters earlier this year. But today speaking for the first time since

:14:02.:14:08.

going back to work, Neil Rhodes said he is looking forward. Alan Hardwick

:14:08.:14:13.

and are both committed to improving the quality of policing in this

:14:13.:14:18.

county. And I think it is important that the story moves from the

:14:18.:14:23.

personalities involved, and focuses again on the quality of policing.

:14:23.:14:27.

But Mr Rhodes is still being investigated for his alleged role in

:14:27.:14:33.

a racial discrimination case at West Yorkshire Police. Mr Rhodes was

:14:33.:14:38.

suspended in February. No reasons were given, but Mr Hardwick referred

:14:38.:14:41.

to matter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. In March the

:14:41.:14:46.

IPCC sent the case back to be dealt with locally and Mr Hardwick

:14:46.:14:49.

launched an independent investigation. In March a court

:14:49.:14:53.

overturned the suspension and Mr Rhodes went back to work. Hind sight

:14:53.:14:59.

is a wonderful thing isn't it? The outcome of course is something that

:14:59.:15:04.

both are going to draw a line under. But you have regrets? You are asking

:15:04.:15:11.

me if I have regrets, I have said... About suspending him? That is all in

:15:11.:15:17.

the past. The press conference was held here, because this area was

:15:17.:15:20.

targeted by one particular burglar and since he has been locked up the

:15:20.:15:25.

crime figures have come down here. And people living in the area say

:15:25.:15:29.

they care about the amount of police on the ground, but are they bothered

:15:29.:15:33.

about what has gone on at the top of the force. I don't think a lot of

:15:33.:15:40.

people are bothered. As long as crime is fought by police and there

:15:40.:15:45.

are police still. Good relations would lead to more harmonious work

:15:45.:15:49.

and should be of benefit. outcome of the investigation is

:15:49.:15:53.

expected within week and it will still be some sometime before they

:15:53.:16:03.
:16:03.:16:19.

It is quite difficult, morale has been reported as low nationally.

:16:19.:16:24.

The frontline police want to get on and do the job. This does not help

:16:24.:16:30.

to encourage police officers to do a great job. We have the police

:16:30.:16:38.

commissioner out there in front of the media, is this a good thing?

:16:38.:16:43.

think these people are appealing for the wrong reasons. They are

:16:43.:16:51.

winded in the wrong ways. -- wounded. Now is the time to get on

:16:51.:16:56.

and do what the public want which is to get policing and the morale

:16:56.:17:03.

of officers up in Lincolnshire. see these people are wounded can

:17:03.:17:08.

they work together and get on with it? These individuals are paid an

:17:08.:17:13.

awful lot of money to do a job, they need to get on and do that.

:17:13.:17:19.

There is no room for sentiment. They have to put this behind them

:17:19.:17:29.
:17:29.:17:31.

and move forward. There is a lot of work to be done in Lancashire.

:17:31.:17:36.

the commissioners working? I think the jury is still out. Some good

:17:36.:17:40.

things have come out in some areas of the country but there is

:17:40.:17:46.

inconsistency. There are 39 police and Crown Commissioners. The jury

:17:46.:17:56.
:17:56.:17:58.

is still out on them. -- police and crime are commissioners. I would

:17:58.:18:03.

like to know what you think of this one. Five months on from last

:18:03.:18:08.

autumn when the police and crime commissioners were appointed and

:18:08.:18:16.

started work, do you think it is going well? Text us or send an e-

:18:16.:18:23.

mail. I look forward to hearing from you. Within the last hour it

:18:23.:18:30.

has been revealed that an appeal has been made for the NHS to look

:18:30.:18:36.

again at plans to halt children's heart surgery at Leeds Royal

:18:36.:18:42.

Infirmary. A judicial review found that the process was flawed and a

:18:42.:18:48.

panel has been set up to look at the issue. Campaigners say the

:18:48.:18:53.

challenge is a waste of time. We will continue to follow that on the

:18:53.:18:57.

programme. A father from East Yorkshire who's daughter died last

:18:57.:19:00.

year will be one of those taking part in the London Marathon this

:19:00.:19:03.

weekend. David Pudsey is raising money for the hospice which helped

:19:03.:19:06.

care for his daughter Hannah who was a heart transplant. But David's

:19:06.:19:09.

run is all the more poignant because of his own health problems.

:19:09.:19:17.

Amy Cole reports. The London Marathon is a major event in

:19:17.:19:21.

Britain's sporting calendar and attracts thousands of athletes.

:19:21.:19:27.

Supporting each other during the ruling run will be this father and

:19:27.:19:33.

son who hope to raise as much as they can for the hospice which

:19:33.:19:38.

cared for their daughter and sister. David has another reason to run

:19:38.:19:45.

this year. It might be my last chance to actually run it because I

:19:45.:19:55.
:19:55.:19:56.

have multiple sclerosis and it takes a lot even now to do it.

:19:56.:20:05.

is a charity that was very close to my sister's heart. It has been just

:20:05.:20:10.

one year since she died. I think doing something like this is like a

:20:10.:20:17.

great tribute. She was 12 when her heart started to feel. Her heart

:20:17.:20:22.

transplant gave her a decade of life during which she urged others

:20:22.:20:29.

to become organ donors. People never get around to doing it. They

:20:29.:20:33.

say they will sign up but they will do it tomorrow and sometimes that

:20:34.:20:43.
:20:44.:20:44.

tomorrow never comes. This link in based cafe owner is running for his

:20:44.:20:50.

first time and he is not prepared to give up now it despite the fears

:20:51.:20:58.

after bombs at the Boston Marathon. People have supported me for months

:20:58.:21:02.

and months and sponsored need to raise thousands of pounds for my

:21:02.:21:07.

chosen charity, I am more determined than ever. For many it

:21:07.:21:12.

is an experience they simply do not want to miss out on. Good luck to

:21:12.:21:17.

those who are running at the weekend. A new flag for East

:21:17.:21:20.

Yorkshire has been unfurled for the first time. The design was chosen

:21:20.:21:23.

after a competition following legal changes last year which meant the

:21:23.:21:27.

area can now have its own flag. It was hoisted to the top of Beverley

:21:27.:21:35.

Minster this morning. It is from dead people and it is for the

:21:35.:21:41.

people. It could be about commerce and business. It is about branding.

:21:41.:21:47.

We have to project who we are. Hull City manager Steve Bruce admits

:21:47.:21:50.

there may be a few butterflies ahead of the game with Bristol City

:21:50.:21:54.

tomorrow. They will take an enormous step towards the Premier

Watford with three games to play. think it is quite healthy, it gets

:22:12.:22:17.

the adrenalin pumping and we have a wonderful opportunity. We have been

:22:17.:22:21.

in the top six for the best part of six months and we have to see the

:22:21.:22:25.

job through. It will be a big step forward tomorrow if we can get the

:22:25.:22:31.

right result. And if you can't get in to the KC tomorrow you'll find
