headlines: Volunteers are drafted into a Lincolnshire hospital to help

:00:10.:00:19.

feed patients, but managers say they will not replace nurses.

:00:19.:00:24.

volunteers are for support, not instead of nursing.

:00:24.:00:29.

Hope that success for Hull FC in the Challenge Cup could help raise the

:00:29.:00:37.

profile of their home city. Brilliant! 70 years after escorting

:00:37.:00:40.

Russian convoys, a veteran is finally recognised for his wartime

:00:40.:00:44.

service. And 200,000 people flocked to the

:00:44.:00:52.

coast for the most successful you thought airshow all time. I am live

:00:53.:00:58.

in Cleethorpes assessing the impact the air show has had on the local

:00:58.:01:01.

economy. Join me later in the programme for

:01:01.:01:10.

the full cast. -- forecast.

:01:10.:01:14.

At a time when 3 million people in the UK are suffering from

:01:14.:01:18.

malnutrition, one NHS trust in Lincolnshire Police it has found a

:01:18.:01:24.

way of easing the problem. Managers at Boston's Pilgrim Hospital and

:01:24.:01:29.

volunteers to come in and help feed patients at mealtimes. It is already

:01:29.:01:34.

being trialled in Lincoln that has attracted criticism and one nursing

:01:34.:01:37.

union has today described it as worrying. The trust, which runs

:01:37.:01:44.

hospitals, -- the trust which runs the hospital was recently put into

:01:44.:01:50.

special measures because of higher than normal death rates.

:01:50.:01:58.

Volunteers helping patients at Lincoln Hospital. I did not spill as

:01:58.:02:07.

much. Gene can feed herself but many others can't. More than 1000

:02:07.:02:11.

patients have died of malnutrition in hospital in the past four years,

:02:11.:02:17.

according to Government figures. is a part of what we are doing here

:02:17.:02:25.

and it is important to recognise that the volunteers are not here to

:02:25.:02:28.

replace nurses. Rebecca is interested to learn more about the

:02:28.:02:33.

scheme. Her mother died after she refused to eat following surgery.

:02:33.:02:40.

would be easy to say, let's get the volunteers in the problem with the

:02:40.:02:43.

NHS is solved, but it is not going to be as easy as that. It is just

:02:43.:02:50.

feeding. It is caring vomit it is attitudes. Nurse managers insist

:02:50.:02:56.

that those who need specialists help at mealtimes will still get it.

:02:56.:03:06.
:03:06.:03:08.

it is caring, it is attitudes. with the most physical or specialist

:03:08.:03:10.

needs will be supported by the nursing staff and the clinical

:03:10.:03:17.

support workers. Senior nurses insist the social action of the

:03:17.:03:22.

volunteers with patients is crucial, too. A lot of patients with dementia

:03:22.:03:27.

do react better to social interaction, encouragement. A lot of

:03:27.:03:34.

patients forget that they are hungry or forget to eat. This project is

:03:34.:03:39.

the subject of University research to see how valuable it is. The

:03:39.:03:43.

results of the research should be known later this year.

:03:44.:03:46.

But with the trust in special measures and concerns already having

:03:46.:03:51.

been raised about local patient nutrition, management have decided

:03:51.:04:01.

to act now so the volunteers scheme will be rolled out to Boston.

:04:01.:04:03.

I spoke to David Harding Price from the Royal College of Nursing and

:04:03.:04:08.

asked him whether nurses felt they had time to look after Food & Drink

:04:08.:04:12.

for their patients. We have been saying for some time that nurses are

:04:12.:04:16.

under a lot of time pressure and we have to ensure that they have all

:04:16.:04:22.

the time they need to provide all the care, and that includes time to

:04:22.:04:26.

do the feeding and hydration. accept this is nursing on the cheap,

:04:26.:04:32.

or this is how it will be seen? Ann it is a worrying development and the

:04:32.:04:37.

royal college nursing is concerned that it could lead to people seeing

:04:37.:04:43.

it as nurses on the cheap. We would like horrified nurses paid for to

:04:44.:04:48.

provide sufficient care. -- we would like qualified nurses.

:04:48.:04:56.

Do they feel but feeding patients is beneath them? No, they do not. What

:04:56.:05:02.

we are saying is you have to ensure there is sufficient staff so we can

:05:02.:05:06.

provide the 24-hour care. Everything through feeding to sleeping to the

:05:06.:05:10.

pounds on, whether it is changing addressing... Watt we heard in our

:05:10.:05:19.

report, one patient who died because the feeding was not being monitored

:05:19.:05:22.

in Lincoln. Will this scheme work? It will work

:05:22.:05:27.

if the volunteers are suitably trained, if they share the

:05:27.:05:30.

information about what the patient has eaten and drunk and if the staff

:05:30.:05:35.

are able to work with them. It will not work if we have a situation

:05:35.:05:40.

where it is seen as a means of doing things on the cheap.

:05:40.:05:45.

They have been doing this at Lincoln County Hospital for a while but the

:05:45.:05:48.

Care Quality Commission want them in January this year they still were

:05:48.:05:54.

not feeding patients properly. Why can't hospitals get a grasp of

:05:54.:05:58.

this? The difficulty is we have seen increasingly be NHS budget cut and

:05:58.:06:02.

what we are having is instead of employing sufficient nurses we have

:06:02.:06:06.

had a situation, we have senior recently with the care report where

:06:06.:06:11.

management are being told they have too employed more qualified staff.

:06:12.:06:15.

Would you prefer the beating of patients done by volunteers or your

:06:15.:06:22.

own nurses? -- the feeding of patients.

:06:22.:06:28.

By nurses. Is this a sensible way to make sure

:06:28.:06:35.

patients in hospital after police or is it nursing done on the cheap with

:06:35.:06:45.
:06:45.:07:00.

volunteers coming in, feeding on volunteers feeding patients in

:07:00.:07:07.

hospitals before 7pm. Still to come, one step closer to a

:07:07.:07:14.

memorial to Hull's fishing past. With a trip to Wembley Stadium at

:07:14.:07:19.

the end of next month, Hull FC have become the city's latest sporting

:07:19.:07:23.

success. The team secured their place in the belief iss Challenge

:07:23.:07:33.
:07:33.:07:33.

Cup final -- their place in rugby league's Challenge Cup final. It is

:07:34.:07:38.

another boost to Hull, which is also in the running for the UK City of

:07:38.:07:44.

Culture. This is what sporting success looks

:07:44.:07:48.

like. Fans and a whole city on a high. For the thousands who make the

:07:49.:07:52.

70 mile trip to Huddersfield, they came with Wembley in their sights.

:07:52.:08:01.

But it was a nervy start. When the black-and-white is finally woke up

:08:01.:08:06.

they showed what they could do. This from Holt Poster boy Tom line. And

:08:06.:08:13.

the tries kept coming. Could they hold an? A late surge from

:08:13.:08:23.

Warrington was not enough. Cole's 16-12 win and Wembley is calling. --

:08:23.:08:32.

Hull's. Wembley! Brilliant. Everything we expected. And the

:08:32.:08:36.

party continues back in Hull today at the victory is about more than

:08:36.:08:44.

what just happens on the pitch. put it down to a sleeping giant over

:08:44.:08:49.

the years. We are now waking up. We are on the move and moving forward

:08:50.:08:57.

very fast indeed. There is a growing sense that Hull is a city on its way

:08:57.:09:01.

up. A string of sporting success is helping it to shed old stereotypes

:09:02.:09:06.

and reinvent itself. With a Premier League football team, and Olympic

:09:06.:09:10.

gold medallist Matt hosting world-class sporting events, there

:09:10.:09:16.

is a City of Culture bid, too, and national recognition for Hull's

:09:17.:09:26.

architecture. The next challenge, a date at Wembley. It is not just a

:09:26.:09:31.

little town on the outskirts of the river now. It will get people from

:09:31.:09:37.

down south to come up here and see what Hull has got to offer. It puts

:09:37.:09:43.

us on the map. All eyes and expectations of a city now turn to

:09:44.:09:48.

the final. Whole FC against Wigan on the 24th of August.

:09:48.:09:58.
:09:58.:09:59.

-- Hull FC. Bob Barton is a travel writer. You have recently done an

:09:59.:10:05.

article and been very complimentary about Hull. Are we on the up?

:10:05.:10:09.

my first visit and I was impressed. When I told people in London I was

:10:09.:10:14.

coming up for a short break in Hull I had some very funny looks but

:10:14.:10:22.

those people have not into Hull. does it have a certain image? Is it,

:10:22.:10:27.

because as the Observer newspaper said yesterday, it has the

:10:27.:10:33.

misfortune to sit on the word latter tween dull and held? I am not sure.

:10:33.:10:39.

Many people have not been. The problem with whole is it is not on

:10:39.:10:44.

the way to anywhere else so from a tourist point of view you cannot

:10:44.:10:48.

latch it onto a round Britain itinerary, for example. How much is

:10:48.:10:55.

sporting success important for a city? Will that help us? I think it

:10:55.:11:01.

will help, and not just sport but if you are used in film and TV

:11:01.:11:06.

programmes that is shown to bring a lot of people. But a lot of it is

:11:06.:11:12.

word-of-mouth and I'm certainly spreading the word. The maritime

:11:12.:11:16.

quarter of Hull is fantastic. You have the Philip Clark in Trail am a

:11:16.:11:22.

wonderful selection of museums and there is so much to offer. It is not

:11:22.:11:28.

just Hull, we have got Beverley, Barton, nearby some great places.

:11:28.:11:32.

This is your namesake, Barton, and you like it too much yes. I am

:11:33.:11:38.

pleased that my namesake town is a very handsome place. The long art

:11:38.:11:42.

gallery built of Rick where they made the ropes, that is just a

:11:42.:11:51.

unique building. -- built of bricks. It is a very pretty place. Crossing

:11:51.:11:55.

the Humber Bridge is magnificent and if that could be used as a cultural

:11:55.:11:59.

icon I think it would become world-famous. Thank you for writing

:11:59.:12:03.

nice things. Continue your missionary work done there about

:12:03.:12:08.

Hull! An investigation has begun after a

:12:08.:12:14.

van carrying cash was robbed by men carrying a hammer. Police were

:12:14.:12:17.

called to McDonald's in Trinity shriek in Gainsborough just after

:12:17.:12:22.

9am this morning. The robbers threatened the driver before making

:12:22.:12:25.

off with cash. Two men have been charged with

:12:25.:12:30.

murder following the death of a 30-year-old man in Grantham at the

:12:30.:12:35.

weekend. Daniel Walsh died in hospital after a violent incident.

:12:35.:12:42.

Ben Croft, 24, and Sam Croft, 21, have been remanded in custody. Two

:12:42.:12:44.

others arrested have been released without charge.

:12:44.:12:50.

A helicopter crew from RAF left and filled in East Yorkshire has rescued

:12:50.:12:56.

a woman and two children from a river in North Yorkshire. All three

:12:56.:13:01.

were winched to safety. 6000 men from Hull have died in the

:13:01.:13:07.

last 100 years working on trawlers in some of the most challenging

:13:07.:13:13.

conditions on Earth. Today it has been decided what memorial -- a

:13:13.:13:19.

memorial to honour them will look like.

:13:19.:13:23.

For years, hundreds of people from Hull have gathered on wasteland to

:13:23.:13:27.

remember those lost at sea soon it will be this Memorial Day gather

:13:27.:13:32.

at. Called Fathers, Sons and Mothers, it's designers say it could

:13:32.:13:39.

be a teardrop representing lost or a fishing net landing on deck. Inside

:13:39.:13:45.

it will be words chosen by the people of Hull. It has to have a

:13:45.:13:51.

memorial for the thousands of fishermen lost. It has to be a place

:13:51.:13:55.

of contemplation. It also has to be educational for the future heritage

:13:55.:14:02.

of the city. We feel that this design does just that.

:14:02.:14:06.

Memorial's designers have already made their mark on Hull, giving the

:14:06.:14:15.

city its Fish Trail as well as giving Blackpool the Comedy Carpet.

:14:15.:14:19.

It is a memorial but more than that. It is where people can go to

:14:19.:14:24.

remember those lost. But also it could be quite an attraction for the

:14:24.:14:31.

centre it's in terms of the history of the community. 6000 of Hull's

:14:31.:14:36.

trawlermen were lost at sea. He memorial to them will be built using

:14:36.:14:46.

money raised by the fishing heritage group. It will cost �250,000 to

:14:46.:14:53.

build it here but before construction can begin, the group

:14:53.:15:00.

wants the designer to consult with the fishing men's families. People

:15:00.:15:06.

from Hull's former fishing community. To date we asked people

:15:06.:15:12.

on this road what they thought. father-in-law is scattered up there

:15:12.:15:17.

so we often pop up there to take flowers. It is brilliant. I do not

:15:17.:15:22.

think it is appropriate for fishermen. It is more like something

:15:22.:15:29.

you would find in Trafalgar Square. It is a teardrop and fishing net,

:15:29.:15:34.

yes. The group says it will consult with families next month before

:15:34.:15:42.

finally making this memorial a reality.

:15:42.:15:46.

Another one you might want to comment on. What do you think of the

:15:46.:15:56.
:15:56.:15:58.

design of the Memorial? Thank you for watching. Still ahead:

:15:58.:16:02.

A survivor of World War II naval battles in the Arctic is finally

:16:02.:16:08.

recognised for his service. And how planes like these attracted 200,000

:16:08.:16:16.

visitors to Cleethorpes over the weekend.

:16:16.:16:21.

The full report a little later and 20 more of your pictures, but just a

:16:21.:16:31.
:16:31.:16:56.

binoculars? No, it was not. I note you like bird

:16:56.:17:00.

spotting, so were you playing spotting? The forecast. Torrential

:17:00.:17:03.

downpours today and for the next couple of hours we still have a

:17:03.:17:10.

weather warning in place. One or two torrential downpours. A rash of

:17:10.:17:13.

showers wishing offshore. Tomorrow we are looking at showers are gay

:17:13.:17:18.

but not quite as many. Still some could be on the heavy side. So far

:17:18.:17:22.

today we had a fair few showers. You can see on the satellite picture, on

:17:22.:17:27.

the pressure charts, look ahead to Friday, a lot of uncertainty. But

:17:27.:17:33.

very warm air across France and if that pushes in we could get

:17:33.:17:38.

torrential downpours again. But a long way off. He is the satellite

:17:38.:17:43.

picture. The thicker cloud is where we have got showers and they are

:17:43.:17:47.

pushing offshore now. Still for eastern parts particularly

:17:47.:17:51.

potentially very heavy downpours. Then a dry night with warm, clear

:17:51.:18:01.
:18:01.:18:17.

spells. Temperatures overnight about dry note. Bright or sunny spells but

:18:17.:18:21.

also a fair few showers. Not as many as today but there could be the

:18:21.:18:25.

potential for one or two heavy ones. Temperatures about average for the

:18:25.:18:35.
:18:35.:18:44.

it is a bit warmer. On Wednesday, we start of an a high note. Watch out

:18:45.:18:54.
:18:55.:18:56.

for the showers on Friday. -- start an open day at allotments in

:18:56.:19:05.

Beverley this weekend. Is that suntan lotion in your hand?

:19:05.:19:10.

It is paraffin oil that he uses, not suntan lotion!

:19:10.:19:16.

Have a nice evening. 70 years ago, he was badly injured on his warship

:19:16.:19:21.

in the Arctic Tom now a war veteran from Immingham has been recognised

:19:21.:19:28.

for his bravery. Sidney Lewis has received the Arctic Star medal in

:19:28.:19:33.

honour of his time as squatting merchant ships to the Soviet Union

:19:33.:19:41.

during the Second World War. -- escorting ships.

:19:41.:19:46.

As Sidney Lewis looks over his medals for serving during some of

:19:46.:19:49.

the bloodiest sea battles of World War II, the receipt of a new

:19:49.:19:54.

accolade has yet again brought many memories back. His latest medal is

:19:54.:19:57.

the Arctic Star, recognising the service of personnel during the

:19:58.:20:07.
:20:08.:20:12.

Arctic convoys of World War II. was terrific, the weather and

:20:12.:20:15.

bombing and torpedo and all that sort of thing. To see ships just

:20:15.:20:24.

been blown up, it was quite breathtaking, really. When Russia

:20:24.:20:30.

ended the war we had to support them in some way. They were on the output

:20:30.:20:34.

against the Germans. -- when they entered the war. We had to supply

:20:34.:20:39.

them with ammunitions but to do that all vessels have to run the

:20:39.:20:45.

gauntlet. This is truly an epic part of the war. He also helped evacuate

:20:45.:20:53.

600 men from the horrors of Dunkirk and was one of just a few surviving

:20:53.:21:00.

ship is too good to Malta. It was absolutely terrible. We were

:21:00.:21:06.

dive-bombed day and night. Torpedoes, submarines. I saw two

:21:06.:21:12.

torpedoes literally go underneath the ship. But after his ship was

:21:13.:21:17.

destroyed, two precious photographs were found floating on the sea.

:21:17.:21:26.

wife and myself. And a photo of the ship. I was handed them and asked,

:21:26.:21:30.

are these yours? I just could not believe it. I wake up sometimes in

:21:30.:21:36.

the night and think, let it go through your mind, you know. Then

:21:36.:21:43.

you realise how lucky you are to be here. It is only a medal after all

:21:43.:21:49.

but it means more than that. To those sort of people that were

:21:49.:21:53.

there, it is the feeling you have been recognised a little bit for

:21:53.:21:57.

what you did. Sidney Lewis, who has now received

:21:57.:22:04.

the optics are medals -- the Arctic Star medal.

:22:04.:22:09.

On Friday we toured too four cores of cat owners to be more responsible

:22:09.:22:14.

after eight colony of feral animals was found in Hull. They are now

:22:14.:22:20.

being caught in humane traps to be neutered. A cat charity says it is a

:22:20.:22:24.

problem because not enough owners are taking on the responsibility.

:22:24.:22:34.
:22:34.:22:55.

The Driffield boxer Curtis Woodhouse is to fight for the Commonwealth

:22:55.:23:00.

lightweight title. Former Hull city and Grimsby town foot Baller will

:23:00.:23:05.

meet Derry Matthews in Liverpool on September the 21st.

:23:05.:23:09.

Organisers of the Cleethorpes Air Show says the weekend was one of the

:23:09.:23:14.

busiest the resort has ever seen. Early estimates show around 200,000

:23:14.:23:19.

people attended the event, making it twice as big as last he's show.

:23:19.:23:26.

The resort was still busy and buzzing today after an exciting

:23:26.:23:33.

weekend of awesome aerobatics. Visitors were treated to displays.

:23:33.:23:36.

However, the weather did throw a spanner in the works on Saturday,

:23:36.:23:43.

when half of the six display teams could not take off. We still have to

:23:43.:23:47.

pay for some of those acts. Once they are fuelled and ready to fly,

:23:48.:23:52.

we still have to pay. We were fairly gutted that the weather beaters on

:23:52.:23:58.

that one but we made up for it on the Sunday. -- be weather beat us.

:23:58.:24:07.

Did you lose a lot of money? DS, but we are OK. But it did not seem to

:24:07.:24:17.
:24:17.:24:26.

dampen anyone's spirits. Here are was not that busy, money-wise, but

:24:26.:24:35.

there was a lot of people about. was fantastic. Enjoyed it. The kids

:24:35.:24:40.

enjoyed it. He loved it, sat on the beach with him. What did you like

:24:40.:24:50.

about it? Big aeroplanes.Last year the show generated �3.5 million for

:24:50.:24:53.

the local economy and organisers, who say they are still number

:24:53.:25:00.

crunching, say that figure could swell to 5 million this year.

:25:00.:25:04.

Our reporter is in Cleethorpes now. Did the traders in the town see the

:25:04.:25:10.

benefit? There has been a bit of a mixed reaction, actually. I have

:25:10.:25:15.

been talking to some of the traders. While many do not deny that the

:25:15.:25:19.

increase in footfall was a good thing, some say that the fact that

:25:19.:25:24.

the parking was closed off on the sea front, it meant people could not

:25:24.:25:30.

come and stop, by an ice cream or fish and chips, and they had to park

:25:30.:25:35.

quite far away. I am joined by a councillor. I do not understand

:25:35.:25:39.

where they are coming from. We had an additional 200,000 people over

:25:39.:25:46.

the weekend. We will be meeting the traders to overcome that but an

:25:46.:25:49.

estimated �4 million extra went into the economy. Yes, the car park was
