North. The headlines tonight: The rising

:00:08.:00:11.

cost at our rural pumps but the Government has no plans to give

:00:11.:00:15.

drivers here a discount on fuel. People's wages are not going up but

:00:15.:00:20.

yet, fuel is getting higher and higher. The supermarkets knock off a

:00:20.:00:25.

penny or two but a penny or two is no good. The head of the ambulance

:00:25.:00:29.

service which covers Lincolnshire leaves his job. As figures show a

:00:29.:00:32.

fall in national breast-feeding rates, mums in Hull are targeted as

:00:32.:00:36.

part of a new campaign. I once breast-fed in a disabled toilet and

:00:36.:00:41.

I sat there, thinking, "What am I doing? I wouldn't eat my lunch in a

:00:41.:00:45.

toilet so why would I expect my baby to?" The perfect location for a

:00:45.:00:48.

Georgian drama - could Beverley be the focus for the BBC's Christmas

:00:48.:00:58.
:00:58.:01:00.

hit? We reached 26 degrees in Hull. It will feel pleasant. I will have

:01:00.:01:08.

Drivers in rural areas say they are becoming increasingly isolated

:01:08.:01:13.

because of the cost of filling up their cars. It comes as the

:01:13.:01:16.

Government announces it will look at extending a fuel discount to remote

:01:16.:01:23.

parts of the UK including Cornwall and Cumbria. Pumps in East Yorkshire

:01:23.:01:26.

and Lincolnshire have been left out of the plans, leaving one of our

:01:26.:01:29.

councils saying more pressure is needed to force the Government to

:01:29.:01:31.

help motorists in our area. Our political editor Tim Iredale

:01:31.:01:41.
:01:41.:01:56.

living in this village rely heavily on their cars. It is very hard for

:01:56.:02:04.

me. Fuel is cheaper in the big cities. People's wages are not

:02:04.:02:10.

covering up. The supermarkets knock a penny or two off but that is no

:02:10.:02:14.

good. The owner of the village garage says rural petrol stations

:02:14.:02:20.

are fighting for their very survival. It is very tough because

:02:20.:02:25.

the supermarkets give it away. We cannot compete with them. More and

:02:25.:02:30.

more verbal garages close down. quick glance at an internet

:02:30.:02:34.

comparison site reveals the lowest price of a litre of unleaded is just

:02:34.:02:38.

under 1.31 in Lincoln 1.34 in Hull but in rural Horncastle the lowest

:02:38.:02:40.

price is almost 1.40. The Government is now considering reducing fuel

:02:40.:02:49.

duty by 5p a litre in remote rural areas. Motorists in the Scottish

:02:49.:02:53.

Islands and the Scilly Isles have already seen a reduction due the

:02:53.:03:02.

cost of transporting petrol and diesel to those areas. But despite

:03:02.:03:07.

being one of England's biggest counties, Lincolnshire isn't on the

:03:07.:03:10.

government short list and that has prompted an angry response from

:03:10.:03:15.

local councillors. I am disappointing and I am standing up

:03:15.:03:20.

for Lincolnshire on this issue. we look at the occupations,

:03:20.:03:26.

Lincolnshire has 720,000 residents, North Yorkshire has something in the

:03:26.:03:32.

region of 600 and Herefordshire has 140,000. So, where is the fairness

:03:32.:03:40.

in that. Ministers say they are beginning to gather evidence for

:03:40.:03:44.

reducing fuel duty in some areas but in the short term, it seems there is

:03:44.:03:49.

little hope for a price cut in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

:03:49.:03:53.

Edmund King is the President of the AA. I asked him whether a fuel

:03:53.:04:02.

discount for rural areas was a good idea. I think any help for those in

:04:02.:04:06.

isolated areas that depend on their car is useful but it looks like it

:04:06.:04:10.

is a bit of a postcode lottery because what areas are remote and

:04:10.:04:14.

what aren't? I certainly know there are a lot of people in Lincolnshire

:04:14.:04:21.

who are very concerned that they are not being included. Should they be

:04:21.:04:26.

included? It doesn't get much more brutal than Lincolnshire. Since this

:04:26.:04:30.

announcement, we have been inundated Pete with calls from people from

:04:30.:04:38.

Sussex, -- Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Dorset, from people who save their

:04:38.:04:42.

fuel is very expensive, there are no buses and they depend on their car.

:04:42.:04:47.

It is a convex thing for the government to look at and ultimately

:04:47.:04:54.

the EC. -- a complex thing. Do you think this actual policy that the --

:04:54.:05:00.

wants to be pushed through is workable which Mark your macro when

:05:00.:05:04.

it was introduced in the Scottish Isles, the 5p litre discount was

:05:04.:05:10.

introduced at the same time that fuel went up 7p so no one actually

:05:10.:05:15.

noticed it. I think it is a bit of window dressing. What we really need

:05:15.:05:25.

is fuel price transparency and feel rices being reduced. A lot of people

:05:25.:05:28.

in Lincolnshire will think this is a good idea, what is your message to

:05:28.:05:33.

them rushed and Mark the message to people in Lincolnshire is that

:05:33.:05:38.

really, garages in Lincolnshire have two proved to the Treasury that they

:05:38.:05:43.

are in the same situation as those in the moat areas of Wales and Devon

:05:43.:05:48.

and other areas to actually make the case. I believe many in Lincolnshire

:05:48.:05:54.

can make a good case in the others get a 5p cut.

:05:54.:05:59.

Do you live in a rural area and find the price of fuel too expensive? Or

:05:59.:06:04.

do you live in a city and think it's unfair for rural areas to expect to

:06:04.:06:14.
:06:14.:06:30.

In a moment: forget knots and campfires, this is the new face of

:06:30.:06:38.

scouting at an international camp in Lincolnshire.

:06:38.:06:41.

The head of the ambulance service that covers Lincolnshire has left

:06:41.:06:45.

his job. It's two months since the Home Secretary ordered a review into

:06:45.:06:50.

Phil Milligan's plans to reorganise ambulance services in Lincolnshire.

:06:50.:06:57.

Emma Massey is in our newsroom, what is the background to his departure.

:06:57.:07:00.

Well, East Midlands Ambulance Service provides care for 4.8

:07:00.:07:02.

million people including those in Lincolnshire but this is an

:07:02.:07:05.

organisation that has been beset with problems. It's failed to meet

:07:05.:07:10.

its response time targets for three years running. Also, the plans it

:07:10.:07:12.

had designed to improve those responses have been heavily

:07:12.:07:15.

criticised. In June, the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt ordered a

:07:15.:07:20.

review into that re-organisation. And now EMAS has lost it's chief

:07:20.:07:24.

executive who we understand has stood down with immediate effect.

:07:24.:07:28.

Phil Milligan had been with the NHS for 30 years and in a statement said

:07:28.:07:34.

he is now looking forward to spending more time with his family.

:07:34.:07:38.

An interim chief executive has been appointed.

:07:38.:07:42.

So, Emma, has there been any reaction to this announcement?

:07:42.:07:46.

The Ambulance Service itself has only issued a statement in which it

:07:46.:07:49.

thanked Mr Milligan for his service but offered no explanation as to why

:07:49.:07:53.

he has left. However, we have spoken to some of Lincolnshire MPs. Martin

:07:53.:07:56.

Vickers, the MP for Cleethorpes said, "this comes as no real

:07:56.:08:00.

surprise. The Trust has had more than its fair share of problems

:08:00.:08:03.

recently." The Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy said, "the question

:08:03.:08:05.

needs to be asked about whether North and North East Lincolnshire

:08:05.:08:10.

should be served by EMAS or by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service." He

:08:10.:08:17.

feels the area covered by EMAS is simply too big.

:08:17.:08:21.

A Hull woman has denied killing her four-week-old daughter. Natasha

:08:21.:08:27.

Salten pleaded not guilty to the murder of her baby Amelia-Lilly last

:08:27.:08:32.

October. She was granted bail, with a trial now set for November.

:08:32.:08:34.

Some stroke services at the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in

:08:35.:08:38.

Grimsby will temporarily close after being judged as inadequate by the

:08:38.:08:40.

Keogh Review. The review investigated unnecessarily high

:08:40.:08:44.

death rates at a number of hospitals. Services will move to

:08:44.:08:49.

Scunthorpe General. The NHS trust says this is the only way they can

:08:49.:08:55.

provide a 24-hour service that is safe for patients.

:08:55.:08:58.

Part of a recreation ground in Lincolnshire looks set to be sold to

:08:58.:09:01.

make way for a road to a new supermarket. District councillors

:09:01.:09:05.

voted last night for a compulsory purchase order on sections of a park

:09:05.:09:09.

owned by Sleaford Town Council. They said the controversial road is vital

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

for the regeneration of the town. All the way through, are the --

:09:22.:09:26.

remit has been to represent the people. They do not want such a

:09:26.:09:30.

large loss of the recreation land and the closure of the level

:09:30.:09:36.

crossing. If we don't grow and provide jobs, we will be the little

:09:36.:09:41.

lost county where nothing ever happens. We don't want that to

:09:41.:09:46.

happen. We will continue to follow this dory.

:09:46.:09:49.

More support is needed to help new mothers with breast-feeding their

:09:49.:09:52.

babies and the public needs to play it's part. That's according to

:09:52.:09:55.

campaigners in Hull, who organised a breast-feeding event today in a city

:09:55.:09:59.

park. They say mums are often made to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed

:09:59.:10:03.

when they feed in public and that needs to stop. Breast-feeding can

:10:03.:10:05.

help protect children from infections and illness but despite

:10:05.:10:09.

an increase, nearly half of mothers still give up within the first two

:10:09.:10:19.
:10:19.:10:20.

The benefits of breast-feeding for both mother and baby are well

:10:20.:10:25.

documented. This event in Hull is part of a worldwide attempt to break

:10:25.:10:28.

the record for the number of women breast-feeding and to give new mums'

:10:28.:10:38.
:10:38.:10:39.

support. When mums come home from hospital, there are fewer visits by

:10:39.:10:46.

the midwife. We also, we know what you are going through. But there can

:10:46.:10:50.

still be a stigma attached to doing this in public. Last month on Look

:10:50.:10:53.

North, we told you about the mother asked by a train conductor to

:10:53.:10:56.

breast-feed in the toilet. Danielle Ashdown, with baby Stanley, tells of

:10:57.:11:04.

similar experiences. I am quite open to rest feeding in public. When

:11:04.:11:08.

Stanley was little, I once breast-fed in a disabled toilet and

:11:08.:11:14.

I thought, what am I doing? I wouldn't eat my lunch in a toilet,

:11:14.:11:22.

why would I expect my baby to? Events like this aim to give new

:11:22.:11:28.

mothers support and show them the NFS. -- the benefits. The Department

:11:28.:11:31.

of Health recommends mothers breast-feed for the first six

:11:31.:11:34.

months. But nationally, 37% of women stopped within eight weeks. In the

:11:34.:11:37.

Yorkshire and Humber, that figure is higher at 42%, while in the East

:11:37.:11:42.

Midlands, 43% of mothers stopped within six to eight weeks. Legally,

:11:42.:11:45.

women can breast-feed anywhere at anytime but often the law doesn't

:11:45.:11:55.
:11:55.:11:56.

help. Some people seem to be offended. Some people don't

:11:56.:12:03.

understand the need for breast milk. People do if you running looks even

:12:03.:12:08.

if you are covered up with a bank it. People don't like it, for some

:12:08.:12:14.

reason. Your macro it is the most natural thing you can give your

:12:14.:12:18.

children. -- The ultimate goal is to show this is a normal part of

:12:18.:12:22.

day-to-day life. And as for world record, counting is now underway.

:12:22.:12:25.

Earlier, I spoke to Carolyn Rabow who's responsible for getting more

:12:26.:12:28.

mothers to breast-feed their children. I asked her why it is so

:12:28.:12:38.

hard to get women in this area to feed their babies naturally. It is

:12:38.:12:42.

historical. It is one of those things that once you get the ball

:12:42.:12:46.

rolling, once everything high percentage, it becomes more access

:12:46.:12:53.

to all. -- acceptable. The breast-feeding figures have gone up

:12:53.:12:57.

substantially in the last five or six year. We have on up from 20% to

:12:57.:13:03.

30%. Still very low. But it is improving. Women in Yorkshire, once

:13:03.:13:08.

they start to breast-feed, they do continue. But a lot of women give

:13:08.:13:13.

up. Why do they do that? Because it can be difficult, initially to

:13:13.:13:22.

breast-feed. They need support. Essentially, they need a lot of

:13:22.:13:25.

support from family and friends and if family and friends don't have

:13:25.:13:29.

that experience of breast-feeding, sometimes, the easiest option is to

:13:29.:13:33.

say if the baby a bottle because then we can help you. If you haven't

:13:33.:13:43.
:13:43.:13:50.

got the confidence, we have a lot of young mothers... Is it the men's

:13:51.:13:56.

fault we are in this situation? is not the men's fault but the North

:13:56.:14:00.

of England and the East of England, it is not as culturally acceptable.

:14:00.:14:06.

We are behind the times which Mark your macro just a bit. You readily

:14:06.:14:13.

see women breast-feeding him public in the south. Because we have a low

:14:13.:14:16.

uptake, we don't see as many people doing get so it is not quite as

:14:16.:14:19.

acceptable. The more people you see breast-feeding, the more acceptable

:14:19.:14:28.

it becomes and the more comfortable women become. It is better for her,

:14:28.:14:38.
:14:38.:14:41.

for the baby and for the long term outcomes for both are far better. We

:14:41.:14:45.

would like your views on this. do some people find it unacceptable

:14:45.:14:54.

which Mark how can we encourage people to take up breast-feeding?

:14:54.:15:02.

That is our e-mail address. And that is the text number. I look forward

:15:02.:15:12.
:15:12.:15:12.

to hearing from you. Still ahead, the extras in East Yorks looking for

:15:12.:15:18.

a chance to shine on the small screen. Wearing the costumes, having

:15:18.:15:23.

our hair done, the authentic make up, just being part of it, you

:15:23.:15:33.
:15:33.:15:34.

really get into the character. miss that BBC drama. Thank you for

the big just this week. This is the helicopter landing. Princess and was

:15:46.:15:51.

at Cleethorpes yesterday. They she is being greeted by officials. --

there she is. Another pig your on there she is. Another pig your on

:16:02.:16:07.

Monday. Lisa Gallagher is with us. It has been a while since you last

:16:07.:16:15.

saw me. Still two months to go, can you imagine how weak I am going to

:16:15.:16:22.

get? I can't get involved, anything I say will get me into trouble. It

:16:22.:16:29.

is not going to be up white hot over the weekend. We have managed 26

:16:29.:16:35.

degrees again in Hull. It has been a very warm day. Sunny spells and

:16:35.:16:37.

scattered showers macro with temperatures returning back to

:16:37.:16:44.

average. We have the south-westerly wind, a scattering of shower was and

:16:44.:16:49.

a decent amount of dry and fine weather over the weekend. You can

:16:49.:16:54.

see in the satellite sequence, the hands of cloud have been taking a

:16:54.:16:56.

scattering of showers and thunderstorms with them as we head

:16:56.:17:00.

through the second part of the afternoon, so there is still a risk

:17:00.:17:07.

of the odd shower macro. Some will continue on until dawn. It will be

:17:07.:17:11.

another very mild night with temperatures dropping down to 15 or

:17:11.:17:21.
:17:21.:17:22.

16 degrees. Looking at the sun times, these are the sunrise times.

:17:22.:17:31.

Those are the next high waters. Tomorrow, there still will be a

:17:31.:17:35.

scattering of shower was, on and off through the morning into the winning

:17:35.:17:40.

but they will tend to fade away from the North. In between, there will be

:17:40.:17:46.

spells of sunshine, a gentle breeze and it will yield pleasant tomorrow.

:17:46.:17:56.
:17:56.:17:57.

Average for this time of year. 2122 degrees, perhaps down, we could

:17:57.:18:01.

manage 23 degrees. It turns loudly and wet on Monday before it

:18:01.:18:05.

brightens up again on Tuesday, occasional showers and feeling

:18:05.:18:12.

cooler. Your macro you look absolutely lowing. -- you look

:18:12.:18:22.
:18:22.:18:26.

absolutely glowing. Have a nice weekend. There's a busy weekend of

:18:26.:18:29.

sport ahead with both of Hull's rugby league teams playing tonight

:18:29.:18:33.

in the Super League. And it may still be the height of summer, but

:18:33.:18:36.

the football season begins tomorrow for one of our clubs. Mike Morris

:18:36.:18:39.

has more. Hull FC's fans will still have

:18:39.:18:41.

smiles on their faces following their Challenge Cup semifinal win

:18:41.:18:45.

over Warrington on Sunday but their players will have to put that to the

:18:45.:18:49.

back of their minds as they meet Widnes tonight. The Black and Whites

:18:49.:18:52.

have lost their last five are Super League games and are in the final

:18:53.:18:56.

play-off spot. Hull Kingston Rovers are four points ahead in sixth, but

:18:56.:19:02.

face second placed Wigan this evening. You never know what can

:19:02.:19:04.

happen. In Football, Scunthorpe United have

:19:04.:19:07.

spent the week preparing for their new season which begins tomorrow.

:19:07.:19:10.

Despite relegation last season, there is an air of confidence at the

:19:10.:19:19.

club. Optimism is around. It is unusual. Being relegated, there is

:19:19.:19:24.

generally do and gloom, but there was confidence around and hopefully,

:19:24.:19:27.

we can put that on the good ball hitch. We are looking for a good

:19:27.:19:30.

season. The Iron will start their campaign

:19:30.:19:35.

at home against newly promoted Mansfield Town at Glanford Park.

said the government had been working flat out to bring wind Tyburn

In years gone by, it would have involved lighting fires, tying knots

:21:19.:21:23.

and singing by the campfire. But, now, scout camps have got a lot more

:21:24.:21:27.

exciting. 5,500 youngsters - some from as far away as Russia - have

:21:27.:21:29.

descended on Lincoln to take part in activities like hovercrafting,

:21:29.:21:39.

parascending and caving. Simon Spark has been along to find out more. If
