And we reached 31 degrees in some parts of our region today. I will

:00:01.:00:11.

have the full forecast. Good evening.

:00:11.:00:14.

The Deputy Prime Minister says people who don't believe in wind

:00:14.:00:24.
:00:24.:00:24.

power to generate electricity are Luddites. He's been in Grimsby to

:00:25.:00:28.

open a new wind farm off the Lincolnshire coast, as well as

:00:28.:00:34.

announcing millions of pounds of investment for the industry. He said

:00:34.:00:37.

Britain is a world leader in renewable energy despite having no

:00:37.:00:41.

wind turbine factories yet - even though two are planned for this

:00:41.:00:47.

area. Here's our business correspondent, Paul Murphy.

:00:47.:00:50.

This afternoon Mr Clegg got an overview of an industry he hopes the

:00:50.:00:54.

UK can become a world leader in. He wants it to be bigger and the

:00:54.:01:00.

country to benefit. When you are in a global race, if you are in pole

:01:00.:01:05.

position, you need to put your foot on the accelerator and increase your

:01:05.:01:12.

lead. He had come to Grimsby to formally opened a new wind farm, it

:01:12.:01:17.

is generating enough power for 200,000 homes. But it is a source of

:01:17.:01:20.

frustration to the government that these giant machines are actually

:01:20.:01:24.

made abroad, with subsidy UK taxpayers. Ministers want Great

:01:24.:01:31.

Britain to get a biggest slice of the action. Strategy will require

:01:31.:01:36.

new turbines, a supply plan that will ensure more of the work is

:01:36.:01:43.

done. We are publishing more incentives for foreign manufacturers

:01:43.:01:53.
:01:53.:01:53.

to do their manufacture in Britain. Mr Clegg said he was working flat

:01:53.:01:57.

out. It is three years since its Siemens expressed an interest in

:01:57.:02:00.

building a factory here but the company has been nervous about how

:02:00.:02:05.

much UK Government support there would be. The proposed government

:02:05.:02:09.

measures include a �20 million fund to offered specialist support to

:02:09.:02:15.

renewable energy companies. �46 million to encourage invention and

:02:15.:02:20.

innovation in the area of renewable energy. And a requirement that

:02:20.:02:23.

larger companies getting involved in offshore wind make a commitment to

:02:23.:02:29.

the UK supply chain. What is Centrica's view of where the

:02:29.:02:34.

government is sat at the moment in terms of support for your industry?

:02:34.:02:37.

We welcome the industrial strategy announced today. There is a lot of

:02:37.:02:42.

work that needs to be done for us to look at it and understand it fully.

:02:42.:02:48.

So that we can make sure we have the certainty required in order to start

:02:48.:02:53.

a large infrastructure projects. that is what you call a cautious

:02:53.:02:57.

welcome. This industry will want to think hard on the detail of the

:02:57.:03:00.

government support package before making too many more big investment

:03:00.:03:08.

decisions. I met Nick Clegg on his trip to

:03:08.:03:12.

Grimsby earlier today. This is good news. You want to be a world leader

:03:13.:03:16.

in green energy. Why do we not have one factory building turbines in

:03:16.:03:21.

this country? One of the things we say, we are setting out our offshore

:03:21.:03:30.

strategy. When, in future, bidders want to install new wind farms, they

:03:30.:03:37.

must show how they will help the UK supply chain. Can you force them to

:03:37.:03:42.

employ local people? Now. We need to ask them, what is your commitment to

:03:42.:03:50.

that local supply chain. -- now, we cannot. Why hasn't Siemens committed

:03:50.:03:56.

to coming to Humber? I hope they will. You hope or do you think they

:03:56.:04:05.

will? It is their decision. We are doing everything we can to make sure

:04:05.:04:11.

that Siemens project goes ahead. We need to work with Siemens to make

:04:11.:04:15.

sure that when they make that decision, it is a decision taken by

:04:15.:04:19.

the Siemens board in Germany, they are confident of spending millions

:04:19.:04:23.

of pounds locally here. I think it will be money well spent. I hope

:04:23.:04:28.

they will take that decision soon. It is reported that they want more

:04:28.:04:33.

clarity from the government. Do you know what that is? Tell a lot of

:04:33.:04:38.

these big deals are very complex in their detail. We are working with

:04:38.:04:45.

Siemens a day in, day out. We are giving them answers. We are giving

:04:45.:04:48.

them reassurance. At the end of the day, Siemens is a big international

:04:48.:04:53.

company. They must make that decision, comparing a investment

:04:53.:04:59.

here to other investments in other parts of the world. I hope they make

:05:00.:05:04.

the investment here. I hope it will be a yes. We are working flat out to

:05:04.:05:09.

make sure it is a yes and I am very committed to this. I have had

:05:09.:05:13.

several conversations with Siemens, I have visited them locally on

:05:13.:05:16.

several occasions, I have visited them in Germany, we are doing

:05:16.:05:24.

everything we can. You have been a great ambassador of turbines. There

:05:24.:05:28.

is still a lot of people who are very sceptical in this country.

:05:28.:05:35.

There is still a big job to do. You call them Luddites, don't you?

:05:35.:05:38.

every new technology, you get people saying, we do not want the new, we

:05:38.:05:42.

want to stick to what we know. I think we have to move with the

:05:42.:05:46.

times. There is a global race going on about who can employ more people,

:05:47.:05:52.

get more investment in the new green technologies. It so happens that I

:05:52.:05:57.

believe the new British economy, part of it, will be a boom in green

:05:57.:06:01.

renewable technologies. It is already a sector growing at 5% per

:06:01.:06:07.

year, more than other parts of the economy. Offshore industry could be

:06:07.:06:10.

worth �7 billion to our economy by the end of the decade, employing

:06:10.:06:16.

30,000 people. I want to see jobs created for people locally. That is

:06:16.:06:22.

why I am dedicated to it. Thank you. That was earlier this afternoon. Is

:06:22.:06:26.

the Government right to say it's a world leader on green energy? And

:06:26.:06:33.

are the people who oppose wind farms Luddites? Give us your thoughts on

:06:33.:06:43.
:06:43.:06:59.

whether Siemens will come to our In a moment: Looking for wildlife in

:06:59.:07:05.

unusual places - the hidden secrets of our ponds and drains.

:07:05.:07:08.

No deaths in house fires in 12 months. A proud record for

:07:08.:07:11.

Humberside firefighters, who say it is because their message on smoke

:07:11.:07:16.

alarms and fire safety is getting through. But they are warning people

:07:16.:07:19.

not to be complacent and have highlighted how even an unattended

:07:19.:07:27.

toaster can cause devastation. Amy Cole reports.

:07:27.:07:31.

This is the result of a piece of toast that got stuck in a toaster

:07:31.:07:34.

and carried on burning. The kitchen is completely ruined - around

:07:34.:07:44.
:07:44.:07:45.

�50,000 pounds worth of damage caused. If we had left that door

:07:45.:07:49.

open, the living room would be in the same state. The actions of the

:07:49.:07:52.

Mawston family have been praised by Humberside Fire and Rescue service.

:07:52.:07:55.

It says they responded in a textbook manner under very challenging

:07:55.:08:02.

circumstances. It took us 15 minutes to get here and get it under

:08:02.:08:05.

control. That was helped by the fact that the family knew exactly what to

:08:05.:08:10.

do in the event of a fire. They close the kitchen door. Dad did not

:08:10.:08:15.

attempt to fight the fire. It is those types of behaviour that helped

:08:15.:08:24.

us keep fire deaths recently down to zero. Humberside Fire and Rescue

:08:24.:08:27.

service says there has been no deaths from fire in the last 12

:08:28.:08:34.

months. In the school year before 2012, there were six deaths. The

:08:35.:08:40.

family said they feel lucky to be alive. Feeling a bit down, but

:08:40.:08:50.
:08:50.:08:53.

relieved as well at the fact that all the family got out. Marvellous

:08:53.:08:58.

response, my older children who were upstairs who managed to get the

:08:58.:09:02.

younger sister out. For the Mawstons, it could be up to three

:09:02.:09:06.

months before they can move back in - a stark reminder of how an

:09:06.:09:10.

everyday act can suddenly get out of control. Amy Cole, BBC Look North,

:09:10.:09:13.

Hull. Parking charges are making large

:09:13.:09:17.

profits for some of our local authorities. According to the latest

:09:17.:09:20.

research, a surplus of more than �500 million has been made

:09:20.:09:23.

nationally. The three councils making the most profit from parking

:09:23.:09:28.

in this area include Lincoln City Council. They made a surplus of just

:09:28.:09:33.

over �2.4 million last year. Hull City Council made just over �1.6

:09:33.:09:36.

million and East Lindsey District Council generated �1.4 million from

:09:36.:09:44.

parking charges. The owners of a piece of land in the

:09:44.:09:47.

way of a major development in Sleaford could be forced to sell.

:09:47.:09:50.

North Kesteven District Council is meeting now to decide whether to

:09:50.:09:54.

force Sleaford town council to give up part of a recreation ground. It

:09:55.:09:59.

would allow a link road to be built, opening up land for Tesco, and the

:09:59.:10:09.
:10:09.:10:09.

redevelopment of the semi-derelict Bass Maltings site.

:10:09.:10:12.

Passenger numbers at East Midlands Airport dropped to four million in

:10:12.:10:15.

the year to March, but it's claimed they're recovering this summer. The

:10:15.:10:20.

fall of more than six per cent is being put down to the closure of the

:10:20.:10:23.

airline BMI Baby last September. The airport says new routes from other

:10:23.:10:27.

airlines and a new base for Monarch should help offset the drop by the

:10:27.:10:29.

end of the summer. Today marks Yorkshire Day, where

:10:29.:10:33.

people celebrate the county's rich culture and heritage. However,

:10:33.:10:36.

according to one survey only a handful of public buildings have

:10:36.:10:42.

flown the traditional white rose flag. Campaigners are using the day

:10:42.:10:46.

to call for Yorkshire to be given its own parliament to strengthen the

:10:46.:10:53.

county's identity. More from our political editor, Tim Iredale.

:10:53.:10:56.

The traditional white rose flag has been flying above East Riding's

:10:56.:11:00.

County Hall today. It was here in Beverley where the first Yorkshire

:11:00.:11:03.

Day was celebrated in 1975, as a protest against the redrawing of

:11:03.:11:13.
:11:13.:11:13.

England's county boundaries the previous year. We think it is very

:11:13.:11:18.

important, we are very proud of Yorkshire and I think many people

:11:18.:11:23.

call it God 's country. It is a celebration of all things Yorkshire,

:11:23.:11:27.

and we are proud of that heritage. However, a survey by a group called

:11:28.:11:30.

the Yorkshire Devolution Movement suggests that East Riding is in a

:11:31.:11:34.

minority and only a handful of local authorities will fly the Yorkshire

:11:34.:11:39.

flag today. The Yorkshire der evolution movement once more power

:11:39.:11:42.

devolved away from Westminster. There is a lot of discussion about

:11:42.:11:47.

this north, south divide. With the Yorkshire did evolution, we would

:11:47.:11:53.

want a similar structure to what we have in Wales at the moment, a

:11:53.:12:03.
:12:03.:12:06.

directly assembly. Yorkshire and the Humber, which has now elected

:12:06.:12:09.

regional government, has a population of 5.3 million, the same

:12:09.:12:16.

number as Scotland, which has its own parliament. So, how do voters in

:12:16.:12:21.

Beverley feel about the idea of a Yorkshire Parliament? I think it

:12:21.:12:24.

should have its own parliament to promote Yorkshire itself as far as

:12:24.:12:30.

the guest of the UK is concerned. Yes. It is a big county. It is the

:12:30.:12:33.

biggest county in the whole country, so on that hand, if you

:12:33.:12:37.

think of it like that, we should have a say that goes on in the

:12:37.:12:45.

biggest county will stop now, we should not have our own parliament.

:12:45.:12:50.

Leave it at that. Proposals for regional government bit the dust

:12:50.:12:53.

under the last Labour government, but with Scotland due to hold a

:12:53.:12:56.

referendum on independence next year, the idea of home rule for

:12:56.:13:06.
:13:06.:13:07.

Yorkshire may not seem so far-fetched. What's the likelihood

:13:08.:13:13.

of seeing a Yorkshire Parliament? This comes up every now and again.

:13:13.:13:17.

The argument is, a disproportionate amount of taxpayers money is spent

:13:17.:13:21.

on the south-east of England and having home rule for Yorkshire may

:13:21.:13:24.

retest the balance. It still throws up a whole new set of questions. Do

:13:24.:13:28.

voters want a whole new set of politicians in the current climate?

:13:28.:13:35.

Where would the Parliament or assembly be based? Leeds, Sheffield,

:13:35.:13:40.

Hull? Who would be in charge of it? Do you fancy that job? Prime

:13:40.:13:46.

Minister of Yorkshire? Should Yorkshire get more power to make its

:13:46.:13:56.
:13:56.:13:57.

own decisions, a parliament for Yorkshire? Please contact us and

tell us your thoughts. Still ahead tonight, the million pound lottery

winners who almost threw their ticket away. I was shaking, my

:14:16.:14:19.

stomach was turning and she had to look at the ticket three times. She

:14:19.:14:29.

said, you have done it. You said you would always do it. Tonight's

:14:29.:14:32.

picture is a beautiful sunset at Freiston Shore near Boston. It was

:14:32.:14:38.

taken by Rose Ravenscroft. Thank you very much. Another one tomorrow

:14:38.:14:47.

night. I was too busy thinking those people had as much money as you. You

:14:47.:14:51.

were taking the Mickey out of me last week. It seems your clothes

:14:51.:14:58.

resemble household items. I wanted to say we have got a tablecloth that

:14:58.:15:04.

looks like your shirt. It is very dull today. I will wear a tablecloth

:15:04.:15:13.

tomorrow. It has been a very warm day. Up to 31 degrees in some part

:15:13.:15:17.

of the region, which is 87 Fahrenheit. It won't be quite as

:15:17.:15:21.

warm or uncomfortable tomorrow and at the weekend. Tomorrow, Danny

spells but there will be an settled spells as well. There will be some

:15:24.:15:30.

showers. Courtesy of this cold front, introducing fresh air behind

:15:31.:15:37.

it. Fresh prospects for the weekend. It has been very warm this

:15:37.:15:40.

afternoon, you can see barely a cloud in this guide through the

:15:40.:15:46.

course of the afternoon. It is a lovely evening out there. -- barely

:15:46.:15:52.

a cloud in the sky. It will be quite an uncomfortable night. In some

:15:52.:15:56.

places, temperatures will drop no lower than 18 or 19 degrees, which

:15:56.:16:06.

is a little warm for son of us. -- for some of us. I think early doors

:16:06.:16:11.

it will be a lovely start to the day, but quickly we will see

:16:11.:16:15.

reversals of rain pushing in from the south-west. There will be

:16:15.:16:18.

increasing amounts of sunny spells and dry weather, but always an

:16:18.:16:23.

ongoing shower risk, one or two could be heavy with the risk of hail

:16:23.:16:29.

and thunder. It will be fresh, it will be less humid, though.

:16:29.:16:38.

Temperatures getting up to 22 or 23 degrees. On Saturday, and Sunday,

:16:38.:16:42.

temperatures in the high teens, low 20s. On Saturday, a mixture of the

:16:42.:16:48.

rebel cloud. The risk of a few showers. A few more showers on

:16:48.:16:58.
:16:58.:16:59.

Sunday, and then rain in the south-west on Monday.

:16:59.:17:05.

Someone was complimenting you on Twitter. See you tomorrow.

:17:05.:17:08.

Water voles, newts and bats have all been filmed in unexpected places in

:17:08.:17:13.

cities for a new BBC One programme. Presenter Mike Dilger and The Urban

Jungle team found the wildlife in unusual places on a visit to Hull.

:17:23.:17:31.

The water is lovely. Are you coming in? Bill Marsden spent tens of

:17:31.:17:35.

your back garden, you can think a bucket into the garden or you can

:18:33.:18:39.

have a pond that is large. The important thing is that you have a

pond. I have a pond in my back garden. I have got nukes, water

newts. The males excite the females by using their tail, don't they?

:19:04.:19:08.

They have a long tail with a crest all the way down and they squish it

payday lenders forced out of business. Thank you for all your

:21:08.:21:18.
:21:18.:21:42.

you for those comments. It's the lottery that nearly wasn't.

:21:42.:21:45.

A EuroMillions ticket, discarded, thought to be worth just a few

:21:45.:21:50.

pounds. Now David Long and his fiancee Kathleen MacKenzie are

:21:50.:21:57.

celebrating winning �1 million. Emma Massey reports from the celebration

:21:57.:22:00.

at their local pub. A very lucky couple from Scunthorpe

:22:00.:22:04.

- winners of �1 million in the EuroMillions Lottery. Kathleen

:22:04.:22:09.

initially binned the ticket, thinking it was worth �2.70. But

:22:09.:22:13.

when David took it to a newsagent to claim the prize, he found it was a

:22:13.:22:23.

much bigger win. That ticket could have been in the bin now. It is just

:22:23.:22:31.

unbelievable, honestly. He came home and told me. I was still in bed.

:22:31.:22:35.

would not believe me. I was shaking, my stomach was turning, I

:22:35.:22:40.

got her up, she looked on the iPad. She said, you have done it. You said

:22:40.:22:49.

you would do it. It is nice that it has happened to a nice couple. They

:22:49.:22:52.

will be able to do things they have dreamt of and never been able to do

:22:52.:22:56.

before. So what could this lucky couple buy with their �1 million

:22:56.:23:01.

winnings? They could of course go some way towards buying this, their

:23:01.:23:07.

local pub, the Mallard. It has four bedrooms, two lounges and a

:23:07.:23:11.

well-stocked cellar. There are some houses for sale here in the leafy

:23:11.:23:21.
:23:21.:23:21.
