North. The headlines tonight. A call for more support for school leavers


to keep them off benefits. understand the importance of maths


and English and white is beneficial. They were kicked, beaten


and attacked with a stick - we're live at the coastal community


rallying round to protect its donkeys. Dancing on the streets of


Hull - the latest push to become UK City of Culture. We have to prove


the city needs it and the city wants it. Protecting the Lincolnshire


dialect - the language being saved from dying out. A little bit warmer


tomorrow. I will be back later with teenagers who leave school with poor


grades to stop thousands of them ending up on benefits. It's a


warning from the youth charity, the Prince's Trust, which says a third


of those who get poor grades think they will have to live off the


state. It's a particular problem in Hull and Grimsby where there is high


youth unemployment. The Trust says ambitions are being crushed and


wants more training for teenagers to get into jobs like building and


plumbing. Sarah Corker reports. How do you break the link between


poor exam results and joblessness? Research by the Prince's Trust shows


those who struggle at school often resign themselves to a life on


benefits. Lee Larkin was once one of those teenagers on the dole, leaving


school at 14 with no qualifications. He's turned his life around - now


running his own plumbing business. From nine to 14, it was probably the


lowest period of my life. I didn't realise what I was doing. People 12


to much on the fact they have underachieved with qualifications -


- people dwell too much on the fact they have underachieved with


qualifications. Last month, the Governenment


unveiled the tech level - a vocational alternative to A levels,


giving students training in subjects like engineering and hospitality.


Tax levels will be about recognising high quality.


But the Prince's Trust says those who fail at school need more help.


In Hull, the figure was below the national average. The same was true


in the east riding of. - - the same was true in East Yorkshire. These


workshops in Hull encourage teenagers to take apprenticeships in


health and social care. But course leaders say there often aren't the


jobs at the end of it. The problem we have is employers affording to


take people on as apprentices. Alongside practical skills, students


still need basic English and Maths qualifications. At 19, Jess Hunter


is re-taking her maths GCSE. I know now it is important. In school, I


had the attitude that I would never use ratio. I know now it is


something I need to achieve if I can move on to what I want to do.


So as teenagers anxiously wait to pick up their GSCE results next


week, Lee says whaetever grades you get, there are job opportunities out


there. David Walker represents a group of


schools and colleges taking a new approach to helping young people


prepare for their future careers and he joins me now.


Good evening, Mr Walker. Would you agree with the findings of the


Princes trust? I think there is a lot of truth in what the Prince's


Trust say. I think an awful lot of this comes down to young people


having away to relate what they're doing in and colleges, getting an


idea of what work is about, and understanding what employers want.


We work with over 1400 employees across the UK, and many in the


Yorkshire and Humber region. We find that once you give people


information, they can see it is worthwhile. Are you surprised that a


third of those with poor grades think their future looks not good


and they were live on benefits? think it is a disappointing thing.


It tells us the level of the challenge here, in terms of giving


people an insight. You will find the students getting their GCSE results


now will be the first that will not simply be leaving. There will be


required to do some sort of further training, and I think that can only


help. It needs to be the right training. How'd you get somebody who


has not done well in their GCSE 's but elated? It is about trying to


relate what they do to the subject is, what they want to do. That is


the way forward. Very interesting to talk with you. How surprising is it


that so many teenagers see their future as living off benefits. Is


In a moment: A local supermarket chain comes forward to run some of


Lincolnshire's libraries. People from around the world have


expressed anger and disgust after two Cleethorpes beach donkeys were


beaten and kicked. Businesses have now clubbed together to raise a


reward of almost �2,000 to catch those responsible. Jill Archbold has


been to Ingoldmells to meet the donkeys' owner.


Trusting and docile, donkeys are an icon on the British beach, but an


unlikely target for unprovoked filers. One donkey is yet to return


to the beach since he was punched and kicked in the head. News which


has caused an outpouring of anger. It is good that the public have


said, carry on, do not pack up. reward of nearly �2000 is being


offered to help find people who the donkey, made of donations from local


business owners who were shocked by this news. We are like a big family,


and it is like somebody assaulting your best friend as far as we're


concerned. It is not acceptable on any level. It has gone viral this


week. Everybody is outraged. This nearby sanctuary is a stark reminder


of how animal abuse can change the donkey's nature. Most donkeys adore


children. They are so soft and gentle with them. If children hurt


them, that trust will go. A lot of donkeys do not ever trust again


after abuse happens. It is back to Britain as for John and his donkeys.


Hopes are high that the culprit can be found.


Jill is live on the beach at Ingoldmells. How strong has the


public reaction been to these donkey attacks?


Well, everybody I have spoken to, it has been a reaction of shock. As you


can see, they are such placid creatures. The abuse of trust seems


to have been what has upset people so much. It really has had an


international reaction. We have had messages from support from all over


the world. Thank you very much. We will let you


know what happens. The organisers of Hull's bid to become the UK City of


Culture in 2017 say local people must get behind them if they're to


be successful. This morning an open-air ballet performance was held


in the city centre to promote the campaign.


A preview of what's to come if Hull is named UK City of Culture. The


mini performance from Ballet Loren marked the start of the Back the Bid


campaign. Hull has a great chance of winning


UK City of Culture, but we have to prove that the city needs it and the


city wants it and the people's support is really crucial to that.


We are encouraging people today to get engaged with the bid, to back us


on Twitter and Facebook, to continue to send in their ideas.


This promotional branding will be popping up all over the city - it's


hoped it will encourage local people and businesses to get behind the


bid. I think it would be lovely. We have as much right as anybody else


to have the City of Culture, haven't we? It will draw people in. It's


good for business, for hotels and restaurants and even myself. Let's


get Hull on the map. Winning the title would mean


investment in the city of around �11 million, leading to jobs and the


promotion of the city in the UK and beyond. Hull Truck Youth Theatre is


the kind of group that would benefit. We nurture talent here. It


would be brilliant for these guys to thrive. We have a great system


here. We do not get noticed compared to other cities like Manchester


Liverpool. If we did when City of Culture, I think we would become


more renowned. Hull needs to see off Dundee,


Leicester and Swansea Bay to win the title. The city will find out if all


the campaigning has been worth it when the winner is announced in


November. Still ahead tonight: As Hull City


prepare for the Premier League, we meet the manager who admits he's


living a dream. Most men would give their right arm for it. I was very


Martin Birks took this of Kelby near Sleaford. Fantastic skyline. Thank


you for backs, and thank you all for the e-mails. John has e-mailed


saying, I have sent you a large August calendar so you can mark of


the days until Paul comes back. Act did not realise you could print


of an attachment, Peter. He posted it. Don't patronise me.


Are you looking forward to him coming back?


Yes. On with the forecast. It doesn't


look too bad. It will be a little bit warmer than it has been today,


and there will be some sunshine around. Any heavy rain will be on


Thursday. There has been a fair amount of cloud this afternoon,


which has produced a few showers. There is a heavy downpour in the


Louth area at the moment. It looks like a fine, dry night. Values in


the towns and cities are down to around 11 or 12. We start tomorrow


with a bit of Apache missed. - - a bit of Apache missed. There is a


very small risk of the odd shower. It will be around average for the


time of year. Some places getting up to 21. 21 is 70 Fahrenheit. It looks


like a front will push in on Thursday night into Friday. A wet


start on Friday, but brightening up with some stars of sunshine. What an


warned. See you tomorrow. A local supermarket chain has come


forward to offer to run some of Lincolnshire's threatened libraries.


Lincolnshire Cooperative has already taken on one library at Waddington


near Lincoln, which is inside a chemist's. Lincolnshire County


Council wants to hand control of 32 of its 47 libraries to businesses or


community groups to try to save �2 million a year. We have identified


five where we think we could accommodate the library. We are


willing to talk to any communities about how we can help. We talked


about this last night. Thanks to everyone who got in touch


with us last night about the future of Lincolnshire's libraries.


Malcolm says the service is already I spoke with the leader of


Lincolnshire County Council Martin Hill, and asked him why people


should volunteer to run their local libraries. We will still remain with


15 full-time libraries. We hope people will help us run the others.


They are not going to be proper libraries, are they? Yes, they will


be. They will still be supported by professional library staff. The same


services will be provided. People pay their council tax and they want


their libraries. Because of the national financial situation, we


have to save money. This �2 million is a contribution to that. If that


is found from the library service and we will have to look at other


areas, such as supporting police or highway maintenance. So library 's


IRA costly luxury that very few people are using. - - so libraries


are a costly luxury. The service will be enhanced by the use of


volunteers. Is your housekeeping as good as it could have in? Lancashire


and Cheshire have made savings but not lost libraries. We are hoping


not to close libraries. We have already saved �100 million. We are


working hard to find savings and freeze council tax. There we are. It


is a very emotive subject. People feel very passionately about that.


We will continue to follow that story.


Research in Hull could make cancer diagnosis faster and more accurate.


The technology allows doctors to personalise scans to improve


diagnosis and provide more relevant treatment. And scientists at the


city's university say it could also be used to detect heart disease and


dementia. Amy Cole reports. This temporary scanner at Hull Royal


infirmary is already making its mark. Nicky is a former cancer


patient. She has been able to use the scanner. I have had so many


biopsies and scans, and they were inconclusive. This machine would


have meant it would have been apparent straightaway what was wrong


with me. The scanner uses small amounts of radiation in order to


detect tumours, which in turn improves diagnosis. Scientists at


Hull University say they are confident that in future, it could


be used to detect other diseases, not just cancer. To be able to have


different patients coming in and to be able to make diagnoses, that is


what we are working on here in Hull. There is still some way to go before


the researchers put into practice. A temporary scanner will be replaced


with a permanent one at Castle Hill Hospital. It is a very exciting


opportunity for Rose in Hull. By next April, we will be taking on the


work. An exciting part is to get into the cardiac and neurological


scanning. It is not being done on mainland UK at the moment. All


involved in the project say work is helping to put patients at the front


of new treatments. N four days' time, Hull City will


begin their second spell in the Premier League of English football.


The first game is away at Chelsea. The man who led the team to


promotion, manager Steve Bruce, gave a frank interview to BBC Radio


Humberside's David Burns during the recent pre-season training in


Portugal, including his memories of being the Manchester United captain


and why he thinks he's a lucky man. I have been fortunate. I was never


that talented as a footballer, but I got lucky. Even now, I am here in


Portugal. Most men would give their right arm for it. It is just a dream


job. I was very lucky. What age where you when you went to


Manchester United? Well, three or four years before that, I was in the


third division. What is the hardest part of your job? Picking the team.


I am always going to disappoint people. I can only pick 11. I was


from a normal working-class family. I married young and I have two


children and I am a grandad now. If we're not playing, on a Sunday I


enjoy a pint and a roast dinner. I enjoy going to the cinema, I enjoy


TV. I am very content. I am delighted for the supporters and the


owners. Michener mistake, it will be really difficult. It is a tough


league. Hopefully, the players will relish the challenge. I think we


have some really good young players, who I think will go on to be really


good players and really good Premier League players. It is not often you


get someone who will pump millions and millions into Hull City. I have


really enjoyed the last 12 months. I am delighted for the chairman.


Without him, I am not sure there would be a football club, let alone


one in the Premier League. You can hear more of that interview with


David Burns on his radio programme on BBC Radio Humberside this Friday.


Grimsby town and Lincoln city are RAF crews say they're trying to keep


noise to a minimum during a programme of night flying in


Lincolnshire. Typhoons based at RAF Coningsby are training during the


evening to practice flying in the dark. The RAF has apologised to


people affected. No pictures today of the meteor. If you take one


tonight, send it in. If you don't know what mizzling or


rammell mean, don't worry because there are now classes to help you


find out. They're words used in Lincolnshire dialect, which some


people say is dying out. Gemma Dawson's been to listen to some of


those who speak it every day! There's nowt or summat in there.


Them are beans, aren't they? stoggies are knarling away, there's


a great big hole in that one. sound like a foreign language, but


this is home grown. Farmer Wink and his brother have been using


Lincolnshire dialect all their lives. When we've gone, we are about


the last of it. It'll be dying out altogether, won't it? It's part of


our heritage, like the Lincoln Cathedral. Things like that. They


spend millions keeping them going. But the dialect, another ten or 15


years and we've gone, finished. the past it would've been used more


widely. Do people here in Horncastle still understand the Lincolnshire


dialect? Have you heard of the word "arrad"? No. Do you know what the


word, "arrad" means? Yes, if you live in Lincolnshire it means you


are knackered. What about "mizzling"? No idea. Oh, is it


raining? Yes. Do you know what the word "rammel" means? Rammel? I do


actually but I can't think what it means. Is it to do with junk and


stuff like that. Yeah. What about "gawster"? No. You're asking all the


wrong questions. You are actually doing it now, laughing. To help


those struggling, lessons like this one in Grimsby. There is that much


kelter in the garage, I can't get me hoss in there. It's part of a local


history project, teaching people about the county's customs and


traditions. I think it's very important that we record it, we keep


records of it because no amount of my workshops will actually make


people speak and use the Lincolnshire dialect that was


prevalent 50 years ago. It's getting a bit clammy underneath if the sun


gets out a bit more. But back on the farm, Lincolnshire dialect is still


these brothers' first language. Any questions? I wonder what the


subtitles were like on that piece. Let's get a recap of the national


and regional headlines Rail passengers in England face another


inflation busting rise in their fares - it's the eleventh year in


response on this. Callum said, all I can say is academia is not as


relevant as people think, it is experience that matters over grades.


Somebody says, I got low GCSE grade 13 years ago, and I currently have


two businesses, GCSE grades are not necessarily everything. Richard


says, if every employer took one young person on work experience, it
