Claims from families that are cut in mental health care for children

:00:14.:00:21.

could put lives at risk. Every time I looked at myself, I cried. I do

:00:21.:00:24.

not know what I would do now if I did not have that place. I do not

:00:24.:00:29.

think I would be alive. The wife of a soldier killed in Afghanistan

:00:29.:00:35.

completes a 200 mile charity walk in his memory. Humber Powerboat Racing

:00:35.:00:45.
:00:45.:00:45.

is hailed as a success even though the local boat crashed out. And a

:00:45.:00:50.

song for the Ashes. The children who have been chosen to sing at one of

:00:50.:00:55.

cricket's biggest matches. It is a glorious start to June, but how long

:00:55.:01:05.
:01:05.:01:09.

will the sunshine last. Join me later to find out. Good evening. The

:01:09.:01:13.

widow of a soldier from East Yorkshire who was killed in

:01:13.:01:17.

Afghanistan has walked nearly 300 miles to raise money for injured

:01:17.:01:22.

service men and women. Samantha Stone lost husband Gregg, who was

:01:23.:01:27.

from attic near Hornsea last year. She has walked with her baby

:01:27.:01:32.

daughter from Yorkshire to Wiltshire in his memory. Tarah Welsh was with

:01:32.:01:36.

her when she completed her journey and sent this report. Smiles all

:01:36.:01:46.
:01:46.:01:48.

round despite a year of sadness for Samantha Stone. Strangers came out

:01:48.:01:51.

to support as she finished her walk in memory of her husband Gregg. He

:01:51.:01:54.

was shot by the Taliban one year ago today. His daughter was born after

:01:54.:02:03.

he died. I think he would be very proud. It has been a brilliant

:02:03.:02:07.

achievement. Everyday they have remembered break stones, as a

:02:07.:02:11.

husband, father, soldier and friend. We clicked. We had some good laughs.

:02:11.:02:17.

He was a bit of a prankster. He was a top guy. You could never get him

:02:17.:02:23.

down. He would uplift you if you were feeling down. He was a bubbly

:02:23.:02:32.

character. He was excellent. Every step has been for the man that they

:02:32.:02:40.

once fought alongside. They have battled through the rain and even

:02:40.:02:42.

marched against the hail to get here. They set off from North

:02:42.:02:47.

Yorkshire were Gregg had trained 11 days ago. 74 miles later, a few

:02:47.:02:54.

blisters, a few injuries, they are finally here in Warminster. My feet

:02:55.:03:00.

are hurting, getting new blisters on my feet. It has been very painful,

:03:00.:03:05.

but it has been good doing it. injuries will heal but they have

:03:05.:03:12.

been raising money for the men and women who have to live with their is

:03:12.:03:16.

and for the families left without their loved ones. It changed his

:03:16.:03:19.

life massively. It changes it completely. Our main goal was to

:03:19.:03:25.

raise awareness and to raise money for the Yorkshire Regiment but also

:03:26.:03:32.

to do it in memory of Gregg. It is worth more. He was a great lad.

:03:32.:03:42.
:03:42.:03:43.

many came out to show that he will never be forgotten. Well done to

:03:43.:03:48.

Samantha. In a moment, the whole MP who says that new businesses are

:03:48.:03:54.

vital to bringing in prosperity to the Humber area -- Hull. There are

:03:54.:04:00.

claims tonight that lives could be lost because of a cut in the care

:04:00.:04:04.

being offered to children with severe mental health problems. One

:04:04.:04:07.

in ten under 16 's suffer from a mental health disorder and more than

:04:07.:04:16.

half of adults who have mental health problems were diagnosed in

:04:17.:04:22.

their childhood. Now residential care that was offered at the West

:04:22.:04:28.

End Centre in Hull has been cut because it does not meet new

:04:28.:04:36.

national standards. Parents told us it is a lifeline but the NHS insists

:04:36.:04:39.

that care can be better provided in other ways. Just one month after

:04:39.:04:44.

closing the residential part of the west end children's unit, they had

:04:44.:04:46.

to reopen one of the bed. This woman's 13-year-old daughter

:04:46.:04:51.

suffered a relapse last week after being treated for severe mental

:04:52.:04:54.

health problems. Her words have been re-voiced to protect the identity of

:04:54.:04:57.

the family. It was too dangerous for her to come home. If she was left

:04:57.:05:00.

alone, she would kill herself. I found a knife under her pillow and I

:05:00.:05:10.
:05:10.:05:13.

was worried. They phoned around for a bed but there were no beds

:05:13.:05:15.

anywhere in the country. This was confirmed in a letter written by her

:05:15.:05:17.

consultant psychiatrist. Former residents like this girl who has

:05:17.:05:19.

struggled with body image, claims the units are lifesavers. Every time

:05:19.:05:23.

I looked at myself, I cried. It is devastating to know it will be shut

:05:23.:05:30.

down, because they need that placed to survive. Her mother agrees.

:05:30.:05:33.

are certain children who need that support. I do not think anything

:05:34.:05:38.

will happen until a child perhaps takes their own life and that is how

:05:38.:05:42.

bad it can get. Local health officials say they have stopped

:05:42.:05:46.

offering residential care here because they could not provide a

:05:46.:05:55.

seven-day service. Instead, all serious cases will travel outside of

:05:55.:05:58.

East Riding for round-the-clock care. The nearest beds are in your

:05:58.:06:01.

work, Leeds and Sheffield. Having treatment so far from home can cause

:06:01.:06:07.

problems according to some experts. You need to make it as easy as

:06:07.:06:14.

possible for the young person and their family to care for the young

:06:14.:06:20.

person and just adding that is going to make things even harder. Health

:06:20.:06:24.

officials insist most young people make a better recovery if they are

:06:24.:06:29.

treated closer to home. Union officials point out that some

:06:29.:06:34.

counselling jobs in Hull are being cut. It is a complex service. The

:06:34.:06:38.

fear is that there are no other services available for these young

:06:38.:06:44.

people, so where will they go close macro this teenager is concerned.

:06:44.:06:52.

do not know what I would do if I did not have that place. Patients and

:06:52.:06:54.

professionals agree that treatment is better if it is carried out

:06:54.:07:00.

closer to home. They cannot agree on how best to achieve this. Joining me

:07:00.:07:06.

in the studio is Greg Aitken from the mental health charity Mind. How

:07:06.:07:11.

concerned are you about the removal of this care? Very concerned for the

:07:11.:07:18.

people that would access the service and their families. Your report

:07:18.:07:21.

pointed out that young people particularly respond better to care

:07:21.:07:26.

and support if it is done in their own home or in their own community.

:07:26.:07:34.

The big worry with this solution is that families will have to travel.

:07:34.:07:42.

Whilst concentrating expertise in a location is a good thing to do,

:07:42.:07:45.

counter to that is you have displaced that young person from

:07:45.:07:48.

their community and you will have the problems of reintegrating them

:07:48.:07:53.

back once they are able to leave. the centre does not meet national

:07:53.:07:58.

standards, it is a good thing that care is provided in other ways?

:07:58.:08:05.

There are choices to be made. You can choose to invest in a service or

:08:05.:08:10.

you can choose to invest elsewhere. I am not in a position to comment on

:08:10.:08:15.

the efficiency of the choices being made, but it has to be recognised,

:08:15.:08:20.

that moving young people out of area will put pressure on the families

:08:20.:08:25.

and present additional problems when those young people want to return to

:08:26.:08:29.

those communities. The NHS says young people do better with mental

:08:29.:08:33.

health problems if they are around their family, so services let this

:08:33.:08:41.

one, aren't they a bit redundant? Not entirely. I am sure the

:08:41.:08:46.

investment will ensure that fewer young people need to go into the

:08:46.:08:51.

residential services. However, those that do will be faced with the real

:08:51.:08:54.

problems and there are families will be faced with the problems of

:08:54.:08:58.

supporting the young person when they come out of those residential

:08:58.:09:04.

units. Thank you. I would like to hear from you on this. Are the

:09:04.:09:09.

authorities right to close the services? If you want to get in

:09:09.:09:19.
:09:19.:09:32.

Nationaol Executive Committee of UKIP are discussing whether action

:09:32.:09:36.

will be taken against a councillor in Lincolnshire. It follows racist

:09:36.:09:40.

remarks posted on the Facebook account of Chris Pain and he says

:09:40.:09:46.

his account had been hacked. Six people have been arrested on

:09:46.:09:48.

suspicion of causing criminal damage at RAF Waddington near Lincoln.

:09:48.:09:52.

Police were called to the base this morning after reports of people

:09:52.:09:56.

causing damage to the perimeter fence. The station is home to

:09:56.:10:03.

several operational units including surveillance aircraft and the new

:10:03.:10:07.

Reaper Drone Squadron. Work has started on the final section of a 40

:10:07.:10:11.

mile water pipeline in Lincolnshire. The route between carbon reservoir

:10:11.:10:16.

and Boston is costing �30 million. When it is finished it will be able

:10:16.:10:23.

to move 26 million litres of water a day. The concept is that they have

:10:23.:10:28.

got to move water around the country, as many water companies do

:10:28.:10:32.

and they have surplus water in the Grimsby area and they have got

:10:32.:10:36.

insufficient water potentially in the future in the Boston area, so

:10:36.:10:38.

they are trying to get infrastructure in place ready for

:10:39.:10:44.

that sort of growth. They also will want resilience if we have

:10:44.:10:49.

droughts. Plans are being drawn up to cut speed limits in Hull city

:10:49.:10:54.

centre to 20 mph. The council says the move would make the city's

:10:54.:10:59.

streets safer, but no decision has been taken over which roads could be

:10:59.:11:03.

included. Organisers of the National powerboat Championships in Hull say

:11:03.:11:08.

it was a success, despite the local team crashing and forcing the final

:11:08.:11:15.

race to be cancelled. One crewmember was treated in hospital after the

:11:15.:11:17.

boat capsised in the Humber. The team are firing to continue racing

:11:17.:11:24.

in the future. For the two crew members on board, there had been

:11:24.:11:32.

smiles and celebrations. The city's hopes had been resting on these two

:11:32.:11:36.

local businessmen, who until 12 weeks ago, had never raced a boat

:11:36.:11:42.

before. On the second lap of the final race, this amateur video

:11:42.:11:45.

captures their speedboat crashing. Rescue teams were there within

:11:45.:11:51.

seconds, pulling both men from the water, shaken and badly bruised.

:11:51.:11:55.

Today, navigator Sam Whitaker was back at the marina to assess the

:11:55.:11:59.

damage. Your train to be aware of the potential of these things

:11:59.:12:09.
:12:09.:12:09.

happening. Every time you bounce on a wave, you are expecting it and

:12:09.:12:11.

obviously that is the way you drive and navigate these boats. It

:12:12.:12:14.

happens, split second, you're in the water, straight back up and we were

:12:14.:12:17.

OK. Despite their inexperience, race organisers say the crew members had

:12:17.:12:22.

been trained to required standards. While their first Championship race

:12:22.:12:26.

did not end the way they expected, both already have plans to be racing

:12:26.:12:33.

again in just a few weeks time. Despite the local team's unfortunate

:12:33.:12:39.

end, organisers say the weekend's event was a huge success, attracting

:12:39.:12:47.

thousands of spectators. I consider Hull to be our home port. It is a

:12:47.:12:50.

fantastic city to raise in. pilot on board the city's entry has

:12:50.:12:55.

described it as one Hull of a crash. The boat is on its weight for

:12:55.:12:59.

repairs in Portsmouth. This new ambitious team is undeterred and

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

still aiming for their next race at the end of June. This is the third

:13:09.:13:13.

time the city has staged this national event. It has gone from

:13:13.:13:17.

strength to strength. This year 30,000 spectators lined the banks of

:13:17.:13:22.

the Humber, creating what could have been a three and a half million

:13:22.:13:25.

pound boost to the local economy. Organisers will have wanted this

:13:25.:13:31.

local boat to have finished. It will be back in action soon. Not just

:13:31.:13:34.

racing in this country but around the world as well. Despite this

:13:34.:13:40.

crash, great publicity for this city and that is why so many businesses

:13:40.:13:46.

have been keen to sponsor the boat and its crew. 12 weeks ago, these

:13:46.:13:51.

were two ordinary businessmen here in the city. Fantastic achievement.

:13:51.:14:01.
:14:01.:14:01.

Thank you, Phil. Thank you for sending in your pictures.

:14:01.:14:07.

Still ahead: Rugby league teams improve their play-off chances with

:14:07.:14:16.

winds. -- victories. The Lincolnshire children hoping

:14:16.:14:26.
:14:26.:14:28.

this song will help England to win the Ashes this summer.

:14:28.:14:33.

Thank you for watching. Tonight's photograph was taken by Lester

:14:33.:14:38.

McKone. He took this of Lincoln Cathedral. Another pitcher tomorrow

:14:38.:14:48.
:14:48.:14:52.

night. Lots of e-mails here! -- picture. Just read the forecast,

:14:52.:15:02.
:15:02.:15:12.

that is we who came in! For the next 24 hours it is dry, sunny and warm.

:15:12.:15:19.

This weather should continue well into next week. High pressure is in

:15:19.:15:23.

charge and we could have a prolonged spell of thing weather. The first

:15:23.:15:28.

spell since the end of May last year. We have had to wait 30 months

:15:28.:15:35.

which is quite a while! It has been beautiful today. 19 Celsius, about

:15:35.:15:39.

average for the early part of June. Do enjoy this evening if you are out

:15:39.:15:46.

and about. It will be dry and clear. Temperatures will come in at six or

:15:46.:15:56.
:15:56.:15:59.

seven Celsius. The sun will rise in seven Celsius. The sun will rise in

:15:59.:16:07.

the morning at 4:47am. An absolutely fabulous start to the day. It looks

:16:07.:16:10.

as though we will keep a lot of sunshine throughout the cause of the

:16:10.:16:18.

morning. It is a nice day. The only thing that might excite you as cloud

:16:18.:16:26.

that might come into their Yorkshire coast tomorrow. It will be cruel at

:16:26.:16:32.

times along the East Coast. Inland you will get around 18 or 19

:16:32.:16:39.

Celsius. Wednesday is a little bit of a setback. On Thursday and Friday

:16:40.:16:46.

and over the weekend it is fine, long spells of sunshine. Time to

:16:46.:16:56.
:16:56.:17:05.

dust down your barbecue, Peter. dust down your barbecue, Peter.

:17:05.:17:11.

Thank you for giving us that update. A former Cabinet Minister says it is

:17:11.:17:14.

vital that small businesses are given support to reduce

:17:14.:17:18.

unemployment. The percentage of people claiming job-seeker's

:17:18.:17:21.

allowance in the city is more than double the national average.

:17:21.:17:27.

Speaking at the start of Business Week, the Hull West and Hessle MP,

:17:27.:17:32.

Alan Johnson, said enterprise was the key to improving prosperity.

:17:32.:17:38.

Unwanted textiles transformed into fashion items. That is the aim of

Hull's bags for rights scheme. These people are not just learning to

:17:44.:17:51.

soar. It is to try and get young people informed about business from

:17:51.:17:58.

things like marketing to design. am trying to get more experience.

:17:58.:18:02.

am learning to communicate and work with other people. This business

:18:02.:18:08.

could eventually be owned and run by the young people themselves. It is

:18:08.:18:14.

showcasing new types of skills to them. A critical part of what we do

:18:14.:18:20.

is not just for the big companies but the whole of the history of

:18:20.:18:25.

economic success shows we must help all businesses of all sizes. Some

:18:25.:18:31.

like Grimsby food exporters Ramsden International drawl to big

:18:31.:18:39.

businesses. Their overseas sales are already picking up. Look at this

:18:39.:18:45.

Scunthorpe warehouse, the size of eight football pitches. This is the

:18:45.:18:51.

type of resources that the government wants to see. You must

:18:51.:18:55.

make sure you have the supply chain to make this thing work and we need

:18:55.:18:59.

the government 's support. outlook for Humberside depends on

:18:59.:19:05.

the overall economy. There are some good signs out there. The Europeans

:19:05.:19:10.

are rolling back on the austerity programme. The Chinese are switching

:19:10.:19:14.

away from investments to consumer goods. There are going to be market

:19:14.:19:19.

is out there for ever products. Whether it is multi-million pound

:19:19.:19:25.

exports or community schemes, the aim for Humber BusinessWeek is to

:19:25.:19:29.

bring skills and prosperity to an area in need of jobs and enterprise

:19:29.:19:39.

in challenging and economic times. The start of BusinessWeek. Perhaps

Lincolnshire Police is investigating claims that a student was subjected

:19:57.:20:02.

to homophobic comments during a job interview. We brought you this story

:20:02.:20:08.

on Friday. Reece Wilkes apply to be a special constable. He said an

:20:09.:20:13.

inappropriate remark was made 20 was asked to talk about a time he had

:20:13.:20:17.

given someone news that they would find upsetting. I had mentioned to

:20:17.:20:21.

my mother about being homosexual and she did not take that very well.

:20:21.:20:26.

Immediately the officer interjected and said in a negative tone, "of

:20:26.:20:33.

course she will be upset, she will not have any grandchildren!"

:20:33.:20:37.

Lincolnshire Police are taking this claim very seriously. Thank you for

:20:37.:20:43.

your responses to this story. Paul says the comment made was not

:20:43.:20:53.
:20:53.:20:54.

homophobic... Christopher Aggies and says... -- Christopher agrees and

Hull Kingston Rovers moved back into the play-off places in Super League

:21:14.:21:20.

with a win over Bradford Bulls. That saw the Robins bounce back from

:21:20.:21:24.

their derby defeat to Hull FC. The black and white are up to fourth

:21:24.:21:31.

after their win over Leeds rhinos. Hull Kingston Rovers put last week's

:21:31.:21:35.

derby defeat behind them with an impressive win over Bradford Bulls.

:21:35.:21:41.

The Robins trailed 8-4 at half-time but a second half performance was

:21:41.:21:46.

enough to lead them back into the top eight. Two tries were scored at

:21:46.:21:51.

peace as Rovers produced a stunning comeback. They must prepare for

:21:51.:21:56.

Friday 's visit of second placed Huddersfield Town new Craven Park.

:21:56.:22:03.

Hull FC made it nine wins from ten games in all competitions. Their

:22:03.:22:07.

18-6 win over defending champions Leeds saw them claim to fourth in

:22:07.:22:12.

the Super League table. This from Joe Westerman was one of three tries

:22:12.:22:17.

that helped Peter Gentle 's said to victory. Despite picking up a couple

:22:17.:22:21.

of injuries, Hull FC will go into next week stripped against Catalan

:22:21.:22:26.

Dragons in good heart following another good performance.

:22:26.:22:33.

You can see both of the games on to make sure it 11:20pm.

:22:33.:22:37.

A group of Lincolnshire schoolchildren are preparing to

:22:37.:22:41.

perform in front of nearly 20,000 cricket fans. The children from

:22:41.:22:44.

Nettleham Junior School and Lincoln will sing the original song You'll

:22:44.:22:48.

Never Get The Ashes Back at the first Ashes Test match at Trent

:22:48.:22:54.

Bridge next month. It is after they won a competition to create a song.

:22:54.:23:00.

The sun is out, so time for a game of cricket. And where there is

:23:00.:23:10.
:23:10.:23:21.

sport, there is usually an anthem. England is a very gracious country!

:23:21.:23:26.

Could this be the song that cricket fans are singing this summer?

:23:26.:23:33.

a bit cheesy but it is great fun. There is some funny insult about

:23:33.:23:43.
:23:43.:23:47.

shame on! -- Shane Warren! He is too worry about going bald!

:23:47.:23:49.

The children wrote this song themselves with the help of their

:23:49.:23:54.

teacher. They have just found out this summer that they will perform

:23:54.:23:59.

it on a larger stage at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in the England cricket

:23:59.:24:05.

team begin their defence of the Ashes next month. More than 17,000

:24:05.:24:08.

cricket fans will hear these children perform this song at Trent

:24:08.:24:12.

Bridge. The judges chose them because of the originality of their

:24:13.:24:17.
