North. The headlines tonight: Back on track.

:00:06.:00:09.

Rail services to resume within weeks, five months after a landslip

:00:09.:00:19.
:00:19.:00:22.

destroyed the line. Repairs here will mean an end to misery.

:00:22.:00:29.

Begging on the street - police say many are not what they seem.

:00:29.:00:34.

Lincoln, we have a high proportion of false beggars, if you like.

:00:34.:00:37.

It's Luke Campbell MBE, but what did the Queen say to Hull's gold

:00:37.:00:40.

medallist? And where's Kitty? How an academic

:00:40.:00:50.
:00:50.:00:51.

from Lincoln helped the BBC uncover the secret life of cats.

:00:51.:00:56.

There has been some torrential downpours, so join me later for the

:00:56.:01:06.
:01:06.:01:09.

Five months ago, the railway line at Hatfield looked like this. But today

:01:09.:01:12.

Network rail say repair work will be finished ahead of schedule and the

:01:12.:01:18.

line will reopen in less than a month. A landslip closed the line in

:01:18.:01:20.

February. Since then passengers between Hull and Doncaster and

:01:20.:01:23.

Cleethorpes and Doncaster have had to transfer to coaches at Goole and

:01:23.:01:26.

at Scunthorpe. But, as Crispin Rolfe reports, the service will soon be

:01:26.:01:36.
:01:36.:01:39.

back to normal. Repairs almost complete after steel

:01:39.:01:48.

tracks were left twisted unbroken. But landslide closed this railway

:01:48.:01:54.

route completely, meaning 150 replacement bus service is a day for

:01:54.:02:02.

commuters between Doncaster and Scunthorpe. The main problem is the

:02:02.:02:11.

time it takes on the buses. Sometimes we get to college late and

:02:11.:02:16.

that is bad. It is not a bad service. The end of the repairs is

:02:16.:02:26.

finally in sight today. This is where the four tracks are, going

:02:26.:02:31.

through this area. We're now at the stage where we are getting the

:02:31.:02:39.

railway bed letdown. Will this be a permanent solution? It will be.For

:02:39.:02:42.

the last six months, this has been the only way you can travel down

:02:42.:02:48.

this track. It has taken 50 heavy duty diggers to move the earth and

:02:48.:02:56.

sorrow. How many millions has this cost, and who will be paying for it?

:02:56.:03:00.

At least now for businesses at the end of the line in Cleethorpes, the

:03:00.:03:09.

fear of losing some are's tourist trade is easing. Summer is when

:03:09.:03:13.

Cleethorpes is busiest. It is a seaside resort. We hope people will

:03:13.:03:22.

come back to us. Completing this work means that repairs to the east

:03:22.:03:31.

coast main line can also go ahead. significant portion has been closed.

:03:31.:03:36.

It will be a full service from July the 29th, then we can look at the

:03:36.:03:40.

engineering work that has had to be rescheduled. So next month, this

:03:40.:03:46.

track should fully reopen. How much this landslip has cost everyone will

:03:46.:03:49.

only be determined further down the line. Crispin is near the site of

:03:49.:03:55.

the landslip this evening. How much disruption has this caused?

:03:55.:04:05.
:04:05.:04:07.

The level of disruption has been matched by the level of the

:04:07.:04:15.

landslip. They used to have 2500 passengers every day. The question

:04:15.:04:21.

remains, about the money, there is still not confirmation about what

:04:21.:04:27.

this will cost. We are expecting it to be into the millions. Thank you.

:04:27.:04:32.

In a moment: Why we're all being asked to keep an eye on the state of

:04:32.:04:42.

some of the country's most historic There's a warning tonight that

:04:42.:04:47.

people who're begging in Lincoln may not actually be homeless.

:04:47.:04:50.

Lincolnshire Police say 75% of those found begging were able to give them

:04:50.:04:53.

a home address. But charities in the city say anyone asking for help is

:04:53.:05:01.

doing so for a reason. Gemma Dawson has more.

:05:01.:05:05.

Sat outside a shop in the city. This man has spent more than a year

:05:05.:05:08.

struggling to get by. He insists he doesn't beg, but knows others that

:05:08.:05:14.

Inspector Garthwait from Lincolnshire Police told me it's an

:05:14.:05:17.

issue they've been trying to tackle, because they claim many beggars here

:05:17.:05:26.

are not homeless. In Lincoln, we have a higher proportion of false

:05:26.:05:32.

beggars, if you like. A lot of beggars have an alcohol, drug

:05:32.:05:36.

addiction problem. We would advise not to give money, but to give food

:05:36.:05:38.

and drink. In the past 18 months, Lincolnshire

:05:38.:05:41.

Police say they've dealt with 40 cases of people caught begging on

:05:41.:05:44.

the city's streets. On 30 of those occasions, the person stopped

:05:44.:05:50.

provided an address. The police have taken five individuals to court

:05:50.:05:56.

during that time, with one person going twice.

:05:56.:06:01.

I've spoken to three people sat on the street today. Two told me they

:06:01.:06:05.

are genuinely homeless. The other said he's just got his own place.

:06:05.:06:08.

All denied begging but told me they do rely on handouts from the passing

:06:08.:06:12.

public. But homeless charity workers meeting

:06:12.:06:22.

in Lincoln today insist there's no excuse for begging here. There is no

:06:22.:06:29.

reason why anyone should go hungry or thirsty in this city. We have a

:06:29.:06:36.

project, and we feed and offer drinks and clothing to those who

:06:36.:06:43.

have nothing. They are entitled to benefits whether they have a home or

:06:43.:06:47.

not. Alex volunteers here at St Mary Le Wigford Church. He's been

:06:47.:06:54.

homeless for about a year, but told me he's never needed to beg. I have

:06:54.:06:58.

always seen it as the last straw. I know I will be in a bad place if I

:06:58.:07:06.

ever get to that stage. I try to avoid it at all costs.

:07:06.:07:09.

Police working here in the city say the number of reported cases of

:07:09.:07:19.

begging is now falling. I spoke to Mark Hills from

:07:19.:07:21.

Lincolnshire YMCA and asked him whether these figures will harden

:07:21.:07:29.

peoples' views towards beggars. think unfortunately they will harden

:07:29.:07:32.

views, Peter, which is a great shame because there are people out there

:07:32.:07:35.

who are genuinely homeless, and not everyone is a professional beggar.

:07:35.:07:38.

But 75% of the beggars in Lincoln are naturally homeless, so why

:07:38.:07:42.

should I give them money? I wouldn't be inclined to give them money if I

:07:42.:07:45.

was a member of the public. I would be looking to support them by

:07:45.:07:48.

signposting them to agencies or offering them a tea or coffee, but I

:07:48.:07:51.

wouldn't give them money. So your advice is not to give these people

:07:52.:07:57.

money? Yes. I think it's important, whether they are professional

:07:57.:08:01.

beggars or genuine beggars, they should be signposted to the

:08:01.:08:02.

services. What do you think about those people who are professional

:08:02.:08:07.

beggars who are naturally homeless? They are doing it for a reason.

:08:07.:08:10.

Yeah, they're doing it for money from us. Quite possibly. I think

:08:10.:08:13.

it's important that we try and acknowledge why they are doing it.

:08:13.:08:23.
:08:23.:08:23.

There is a reason why they're doing it. If they are not genuinely

:08:23.:08:26.

homeless, then they just want our money. Quite possibly, but there are

:08:26.:08:28.

people who aren't begging professionally and do have needs

:08:28.:08:33.

that need to be addressed. Do you believe these figures or do you

:08:33.:08:36.

think the police just want to ward people off the streets? I think the

:08:36.:08:46.
:08:46.:08:49.

figures are the figures they have come up with. I am not here to

:08:49.:08:54.

dispute those figures. I am here to acknowledge that people do need the

:08:54.:08:56.

support of agencies within the city, and we must treat everybody equally,

:08:56.:08:59.

and signpost people to the right resources. What would you say to

:08:59.:09:03.

those who go and beg when they actually have a house and even a car

:09:03.:09:13.
:09:13.:09:15.

and go home? I think it is a shame because they're penalising people

:09:15.:09:17.

that are in need. However, I think the people that are professionally

:09:17.:09:21.

begging also have an issue that needs to be looked at, why they are

:09:21.:09:23.

professionally begging. They're not going to get much sympathy from

:09:23.:09:26.

people watching tonight, are they? No, I acknowledge that. I think we

:09:26.:09:29.

need to make sure we treat people with dignity and respect, and

:09:29.:09:32.

whether they are professional beggars or not professional beggars,

:09:32.:09:42.
:09:42.:10:12.

we need to try to provide support to four-year-old girl in Grimsby say

:10:12.:10:14.

she suffered a heart attack, but the cause of her death is still

:10:14.:10:17.

unexplained. Poppy Widdison died on Monday, after being admitted to

:10:17.:10:20.

hospital with serious injuries. Further tests are being carried out

:10:20.:10:23.

to establish what caused the cardiac arrest. Floral tributes and teddy

:10:23.:10:27.

bears have been left outside a house on Ladysmith Road. A 34-year-old

:10:27.:10:30.

woman and 36-year-old man arrested in connection with her death have

:10:30.:10:34.

been released on police bail. A Government inspector has been to a

:10:35.:10:37.

holiday park in East Yorkshire today, to investigate whether East

:10:37.:10:40.

Riding Council acted unfairly when it agreed to evict a group of chalet

:10:40.:10:43.

owners. The properties on Lakeminster Park in Beverley can't

:10:43.:10:46.

be used as a main residence, as the site was only granted permission for

:10:46.:10:52.

holiday homes. Humberside Airport is to offer

:10:52.:10:55.

flights to Denmark from this autumn. The daily service to Copenhagen will

:10:55.:10:58.

be operated by the airline SAS and start in October. SAS joins two

:10:58.:11:01.

other operators at the Kirmington site in a move that it's claimed

:11:01.:11:05.

reflects growing confidence in the Humber economy.

:11:05.:11:09.

Scandanavian airlines have picked up on the fact that there is great

:11:09.:11:13.

opportunity for growth in the Humber region. That's a great investment

:11:13.:11:15.

and a great sign of future development, and if people across

:11:15.:11:18.

Europe are seeing that sort of development in the Humber, that's

:11:18.:11:20.

only got to be good news for us locally.

:11:20.:11:23.

Volunteers in Lincolnshire are being trained to examine the county's

:11:23.:11:29.

listed buildings and identify those which could be at risk. Heritage

:11:29.:11:31.

Lincolnshire has already highlighted almost 350 problem buildings,

:11:31.:11:41.
:11:41.:11:42.

raising concern about how they will be maintained in the future. Jo

:11:42.:11:52.

Makel reports. For the past three years, volunteers

:11:52.:11:54.

like Bob and David have been out and about in Lincolnshire, conducting

:11:54.:11:55.

surveys of the county's heritage, examining and photographing

:11:55.:11:58.

buildings like this old water mill in Horncastle to asses their

:11:58.:12:04.

condition. Gutters, and what we can see are

:12:04.:12:10.

sound... Can you see the tiles missing up on the roof, the slates?

:12:10.:12:13.

The authorities can't possibly afford to do a survey of this scale,

:12:13.:12:20.

and people like myself and David are delighted to get involved and learn.

:12:20.:12:27.

It's taught me a hell of a lot about the town. This pilot project has

:12:27.:12:32.

used more than 300 volunteer surveyors. Heritage Lincolnshire,

:12:32.:12:34.

the organisation which has trained them, say it's resulted in an

:12:35.:12:39.

unprecedented amount of information. They'd identified 9,000 heritage

:12:39.:12:46.

assets and the volunteers surveyed 99% of them. One of the conclusions

:12:46.:12:50.

was how rich our heritage is and how people didn't appreciate the variety

:12:50.:12:52.

of it and how special it is. The other outcome was, the picture of

:12:52.:12:58.

heritage at risk is worse than we thought. We thought it was around

:12:58.:13:08.
:13:08.:13:09.

4%, but it's around 7%. Much of that concern is about listed buildings.

:13:09.:13:12.

If a building is said to be at medium risk, it means it needs

:13:12.:13:18.

maintenance and conservation work. At high risk, they're in danger of

:13:18.:13:20.

being lost within five years. Buildings Heritage Lncolnshire

:13:20.:13:30.
:13:30.:13:36.

considered at medium or high risk included: Every single one of the

:13:36.:13:39.

surveys volunteers did were checked by professionals back at our office,

:13:39.:13:42.

using the photographs volunteers sent in, but we made sure that the

:13:42.:13:44.

training gave very full information about exactly what they're looking

:13:44.:13:46.

for. So we're confident the results are

:13:46.:13:54.

fairly robust. The findings were being shared with other

:13:54.:13:56.

organsiations like local authorities and English Heritage at a conference

:13:56.:14:06.
:14:06.:14:13.

in Lincoln today. The big question is where to go from here. In my

:14:13.:14:16.

region, we've already taken their preliminary data. They did great

:14:16.:14:18.

work on churches - we've started to use that, work on higher grade

:14:19.:14:22.

listed buildings - we've started to encompass that in our daily work on

:14:22.:14:24.

the register. Other areas are expected to follow Lincolnshire's

:14:24.:14:34.
:14:34.:14:37.

lead and use volunteer surveyors in Still ahead tonight: The

:14:37.:14:44.

Lincolnshire inventors who've taken the mobility scooter off road.

:14:44.:14:48.

And what did the Queen say to Hull's Olympic boxer, when she made him

:14:48.:14:58.
:14:58.:15:11.

Buttercups at Skirlaugh taken by Joe Thank you for that. Another one

:15:11.:15:21.

tomorrow night. Our director tonight is a nature lover, so I am told.

:15:21.:15:31.
:15:31.:15:33.

Does that mean he is? No, it does not! Alex Deakin, I mentioned his

:15:34.:15:38.

weather application last night. Somebody said, it is really good,

:15:38.:15:42.

more accurate than Paul Hudson. You will have to stop making these

:15:42.:15:49.

e-mails will. The headlines, it is unsettled, and there will be a

:15:49.:15:56.

scattering of showers breaking out later tomorrow after a fine start. A

:15:56.:16:05.

very unsettled looking set-up. Sunday, not looking too bad. We have

:16:05.:16:10.

had some big downpours this afternoon. Hale and thunder gave a

:16:10.:16:16.

prolonged spell of heavy rain, especially across Lincolnshire.

:16:16.:16:21.

There is a clearance coming in from behind. Perhaps some spells of

:16:22.:16:31.
:16:32.:16:49.

sunshine to an evening with. Or two morning, with sunshine. Cloud will

:16:49.:16:52.

spill in from the south-west, and perhaps some patchy rain, but mostly

:16:52.:16:59.

dry morning. Those showers get going in the afternoon. The odd heavy one.

:16:59.:17:06.

There will be some sunny intervals in between. And little disappointing

:17:06.:17:15.

for this time of year. 17 or 18. Some rain Friday night. Saturday

:17:15.:17:20.

looks quite cool, breezy and Shari. Sunday looks fine and right with the

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:36.

risk of brain early next week. the programme tonight! See you

:17:36.:17:44.

tomorrow. It's feared nesting birds across Northern Lincolnshire and

:17:44.:17:54.
:17:54.:17:58.

East Yorkshire could be fooled by new technology. Several apps play

:17:59.:18:01.

recordings of bird songs. The RSPB is warning that will confuse birds

:18:01.:18:09.

which are rearing their young. Amanda White reports.

:18:09.:18:13.

This is a mobile phone app or application - it's a programme that

:18:13.:18:16.

can be downloaded from the internet and allow its owner to play genuine

:18:16.:18:19.

recordings of birdsong at any time, and any place.. The problem is that

:18:19.:18:23.

some bird watchers are using it to lure shy birds out of hiding so they

:18:23.:18:30.

can capture the perfect image. The birds can get distracted. They

:18:30.:18:34.

spend time chasing digital birds and are not defending their territories

:18:34.:18:44.
:18:44.:18:52.

from real threat. But the app can have its uses. Tools like this are

:18:52.:19:00.

invaluable for helping people learn. The technology is not so new, as

:19:00.:19:05.

many of your viewers may know. You could get all the bad calls on

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

cassette. - - you could get on the bird calls on cassette. Why stand

:19:17.:19:24.

outside when you can come to hide like this, sit quietly and wait for

:19:24.:19:30.

the birds to come to you? That is what builders. Anything going on?

:19:30.:19:37.

One or two kingfishers. In fairness, with or without

:19:37.:19:40.

questionable tactics, today's weather isn't the best for seeing

:19:40.:19:45.

anything, unless, of course, you're interested in toads.

:19:45.:19:48.

The MP for Great Grimsby Austin Mitchell has left hospital after

:19:48.:19:50.

collapsing at the house of commons earlier this month. The 78-year-old

:19:50.:19:53.

Labour MP spent 11 days at Kings College hospital. He's hoping to

:19:53.:20:03.
:20:03.:20:07.

return to the Commons after a week's rest. I spoke to him earlier. He

:20:07.:20:14.

said one thing he has missed has been looked not. Get soon. - - one

:20:14.:20:18.

thing he has missed has been BBC look North.

:20:18.:20:20.

They're normally associated with high-speed adventure but an off-

:20:20.:20:23.

road mobility scooter invented in Lincolnshire is in line for a top

:20:23.:20:25.

award this evening. The TerrainHopper was launched by Sam

:20:25.:20:28.

and Deborah Dantzie, from Legbourne, as an alternative vehicle for

:20:28.:20:31.

wheelchair users to access areas like the beach. Tarah Welsh has been

:20:31.:20:36.

to see their invention. Off the road, and on a mission - to

:20:36.:20:39.

make every terrain accessible to all. What can you use it as?

:20:39.:20:43.

Depending on how deep that water was, it could get through that lake

:20:43.:20:46.

and onto that island. All right, that's brilliant. The idea came

:20:46.:20:48.

about when Sam and Deborah Danzie started a family. They soon realised

:20:48.:20:51.

that pushchairs and their favourite hobby, rambling, weren't a good

:20:51.:20:59.

match. So designer Sam created his own. A disabled friend spotted the

:20:59.:21:08.

potential. She said, "If that was in the shop, I'd buy one." She was an

:21:08.:21:11.

outdoorsy person and she couldn't go outdoors. She told us of many times

:21:11.:21:14.

she's had to be rescued, even by the fire brigade because she's got

:21:14.:21:17.

herself stuck in places where nobody could help. And the TerrainHopper

:21:17.:21:19.

was born. Today, young people with disabilities in North East

:21:19.:21:29.
:21:29.:21:29.

Lincolnshire are trialling it. love it. That's just a new challenge

:21:29.:21:33.

for me. I've never been on something like this. But for James to buy one,

:21:33.:21:36.

it would set him back about �11,500. Does the cost mean that only a

:21:37.:21:45.

minority of people can actually get one, though? Yes, it does. We've

:21:45.:21:49.

come across situations where we wish we could do something, but we can't.

:21:49.:21:51.

But this organisation that provides activities for young people says it

:21:51.:21:54.

may apply for funding, so youngsters across the Humber region can go

:21:54.:21:57.

off-road. If it allows them to go across a field, where they've never

:21:57.:22:00.

been before, fantastic. These are made in Lincolnshire, but there's

:22:00.:22:03.

been interest in them from all over the world. In fact, somebody flew

:22:03.:22:09.

here from the Middle East just to give this a test drive. A bumpy ride

:22:09.:22:12.

it maybe, but it's being recognised as the vehicle taking people to

:22:12.:22:20.

places they could never get to before.

:22:20.:22:23.

Olympic Gold medallist Luke Campbell admitted he was "nervous" as he met

:22:23.:22:26.

Her Majesty the Queen today. She presented him with an MBE following

:22:27.:22:30.

his Olympic success last year. Simon Clark has been finding out what they

:22:30.:22:40.
:22:40.:22:43.

said to each other. Mr Luke Campbell, for services to

:22:43.:22:49.

boxing. It was a day like know whether for a young man from Hull.

:22:49.:22:55.

Luke Campbell received his MBA following his gold at the Olympics.

:22:55.:23:01.

He and her Majesty had plenty to say. We had a bit of a chat. She

Campbell, MBA. We share our homes with over ten

:24:17.:24:21.

million cats, but how much do we really know about what our pets get

:24:21.:24:24.

up to when we aren't looking. Well, a scientist from Lincoln has helped

:24:24.:24:28.

the BBC in a new study where cameras were fitted to 50 cats.

:24:28.:24:31.

This is Deany, and up until now he's been very happy knowing that we know

:24:31.:24:34.

very little about his secret world. But guess what, Deany - we're about

:24:34.:24:37.

to find out exactly what you and your feline friends, yes you, have

:24:37.:24:47.
:24:47.:24:55.

months of work with scientists from the University of Lincoln. Every cat

owner will ask you, what do you think my cat does when it leaves the

:24:58.:25:06.

cat flap, all, is it true they going to other people 's homes? We did not

:25:06.:25:10.

have the information. This was a nice opportunity to get some data

:25:10.:25:15.

and be able to answer those questions. One person who

:25:15.:25:18.

understands cats better than most of us is Jain Kidd. She runs one of the

:25:19.:25:27.

country's only cat retirement home in Osgodby. He's putting his smell

:25:27.:25:32.

on to you. It shows you are one of the gang. All of the cat here have

:25:45.:25:48.

on the television or radio today and you will be hard pushed not to see

:25:48.:25:56.

or hear about cats. That is about - - that is because of the level of

:25:56.:26:04.

interest, and the amount of exposure as a result of making this

:26:04.:26:14.
:26:14.:26:15.

programme. It is fantastic.The full extent of what they've discovered is

:26:15.:26:18.

best for you to watch and find out, but let me tell you Oscar, I've

:26:18.:26:21.

heard about breaking and entering, theft of food, fighting - the list

:26:21.:26:24.

goes on, so those innocent little faces won't work anymore. You can

:26:24.:26:29.

watch Horizon's: The Secret Life of The Cat tonight on BBC Two at nine

:27:02.:27:06.

asking for money in the street. We were talking about beggars. Except,

I gave money to a homeless person and wish I didn't. In Beverly, you
