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

:00:08.:00:17.
:00:18.:00:18.

to keep them off benefits. understand the importance of maths

:00:18.:00:22.

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

:00:22.:00:25.

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

:00:25.:00:27.

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

:00:27.:00:35.

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

:00:35.:00:42.

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

:00:42.:00:52.
:00:52.:00:52.

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

:00:52.:01:02.
:01:02.:01:05.

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

:01:05.:01:11.

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

:01:11.:01:13.

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

:01:13.:01:16.

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

:01:16.:01:26.
:01:26.:01:39.

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

:01:39.:01:41.

youth unemployment. The Trust says ambitions are being crushed and

:01:41.:01:45.

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

:01:45.:01:48.

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

:01:48.:01:51.

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

:01:51.:01:54.

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

:01:54.:01:57.

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

:01:57.:02:01.

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

:02:01.:02:08.

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

:02:08.:02:15.

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

:02:15.:02:18.

to much on the fact they have underachieved with qualifications -

:02:18.:02:23.

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

:02:23.:02:25.

qualifications. Last month, the Governenment

:02:25.:02:28.

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

:02:28.:02:33.

giving students training in subjects like engineering and hospitality.

:02:33.:02:41.

Tax levels will be about recognising high quality.

:02:41.:02:50.

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

:02:50.:03:00.
:03:00.:03:00.

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

:03:00.:03:09.

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

:03:09.:03:11.

workshops in Hull encourage teenagers to take apprenticeships in

:03:11.:03:14.

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

:03:14.:03:24.
:03:24.:03:25.

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

:03:25.:03:28.

take people on as apprentices. Alongside practical skills, students

:03:29.:03:31.

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

:03:31.:03:39.

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

:03:39.:03:45.

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

:03:45.:03:50.

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

:03:50.:03:53.

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

:03:53.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:00.

there. David Walker represents a group of

:04:00.:04:02.

schools and colleges taking a new approach to helping young people

:04:02.:04:11.

prepare for their future careers and he joins me now.

:04:11.:04:15.

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

:04:15.:04:23.

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

:04:23.:04:26.

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

:04:26.:04:33.

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

:04:33.:04:39.

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

:04:39.:04:43.

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

:04:43.:04:51.

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

:04:51.:05:01.
:05:01.:05:09.

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

:05:09.:05:13.

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

:05:13.:05:21.

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

:05:21.:05:25.

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

:05:25.:05:32.

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

:05:32.:05:36.

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

:05:36.:05:39.

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

:05:39.:05:48.

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

:05:48.:05:58.
:05:58.:05:58.

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

:05:58.:06:06.

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

:06:06.:06:14.

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

:06:14.:06:17.

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

:06:17.:06:27.
:06:27.:06:50.

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

:06:50.:06:54.

Lincolnshire's libraries. People from around the world have

:06:54.:06:56.

expressed anger and disgust after two Cleethorpes beach donkeys were

:06:56.:07:00.

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

:07:01.:07:08.

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

:07:08.:07:17.

been to Ingoldmells to meet the donkeys' owner.

:07:17.:07:23.

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

:07:23.:07:28.

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

:07:28.:07:35.

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

:07:35.:07:41.

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

:07:41.:07:51.
:07:51.:07:59.

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

:07:59.:08:05.

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

:08:05.:08:13.

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

:08:13.:08:17.

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

:08:17.:08:21.

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

:08:21.:08:29.

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

:08:29.:08:37.

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

:08:37.:08:42.

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

:08:42.:08:49.

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

:08:49.:08:54.

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

:08:54.:08:57.

Hopes are high that the culprit can be found.

:08:57.:08:59.

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

:08:59.:09:04.

public reaction been to these donkey attacks?

:09:04.:09:14.

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

:09:14.:09:22.

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

:09:22.:09:27.

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

:09:27.:09:29.

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

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:09:40.

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

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:09:51.

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

:09:51.:09:52.

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

:09:52.:09:54.

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

:09:54.:09:57.

in the city centre to promote the campaign.

:09:57.:10:03.

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

:10:03.:10:06.

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

:10:06.:10:12.

campaign. Hull has a great chance of winning

:10:12.:10:15.

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

:10:15.:10:19.

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

:10:19.:10:23.

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

:10:23.:10:31.

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

:10:31.:10:34.

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

:10:34.:10:37.

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

:10:37.:10:47.
:10:47.:10:47.

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

:10:47.:10:52.

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

:10:52.:10:54.

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

:10:54.:10:59.

get Hull on the map. Winning the title would mean

:10:59.:11:01.

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

:11:01.:11:04.

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

:11:04.:11:14.
:11:14.:11:20.

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

:11:20.:11:23.

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

:11:24.:11:31.

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

:11:31.:11:36.

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

:11:36.:11:39.

more renowned. Hull needs to see off Dundee,

:11:39.:11:42.

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

:11:42.:11:45.

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

:11:45.:11:53.

November. Still ahead tonight: As Hull City

:11:53.:11:56.

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

:11:56.:12:06.
:12:06.:12:14.

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

:12:14.:12:24.
:12:24.:12:29.

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

:12:29.:12:38.

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

:12:38.:12:43.

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

:12:43.:12:52.

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

:12:52.:12:59.

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

:12:59.:13:03.

Are you looking forward to him coming back?

:13:03.:13:05.

Yes. On with the forecast. It doesn't

:13:05.:13:10.

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

:13:10.:13:18.

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

:13:18.:13:28.
:13:28.:13:29.

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

:13:29.:13:35.

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

:13:35.:13:45.
:13:45.:13:45.

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

:13:45.:13:55.
:13:55.:14:03.

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

:14:03.:14:12.

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

:14:12.:14:22.
:14:22.:14:24.

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

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

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

:14:34.:14:42.

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

:14:42.:14:46.

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

:14:46.:14:56.
:14:56.:15:00.

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

:15:00.:15:02.

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

:15:02.:15:06.

Lincolnshire Cooperative has already taken on one library at Waddington

:15:06.:15:07.

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

:15:07.:15:11.

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

:15:11.:15:21.
:15:21.:15:22.

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

:15:22.:15:30.

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

:15:30.:15:37.

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

:15:37.:15:40.

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

:15:40.:15:42.

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

:15:42.:15:52.
:15:52.:16:25.

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

:16:25.:16:27.

Lincolnshire County Council Martin Hill, and asked him why people

:16:27.:16:35.

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

:16:35.:16:41.

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

:16:41.:16:46.

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

:16:46.:16:53.

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

:16:53.:17:02.

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

:17:02.:17:06.

their libraries. Because of the national financial situation, we

:17:07.:17:13.

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

:17:13.:17:16.

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

:17:16.:17:26.

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

:17:26.:17:32.

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

:17:32.:17:41.

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

:17:41.:17:47.

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

:17:47.:17:53.

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

:17:53.:17:59.

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

:17:59.:18:08.

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

:18:08.:18:15.

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

:18:16.:18:19.

We will continue to follow that story.

:18:19.:18:22.

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

:18:22.:18:24.

The technology allows doctors to personalise scans to improve

:18:24.:18:33.

diagnosis and provide more relevant treatment. And scientists at the

:18:33.:18:36.

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

:18:36.:18:46.
:18:46.:18:46.

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

:18:46.:18:52.

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

:18:52.:19:00.

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

:19:00.:19:06.

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

:19:06.:19:09.

have meant it would have been apparent straightaway what was wrong

:19:09.:19:13.

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

:19:13.:19:20.

detect tumours, which in turn improves diagnosis. Scientists at

:19:20.:19:25.

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

:19:25.:19:31.

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

:19:31.:19:40.

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

:19:40.:19:50.
:19:50.:19:52.

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

:19:52.:19:56.

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

:19:56.:20:04.

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

:20:05.:20:12.

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

:20:12.:20:19.

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

:20:19.:20:26.

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

:20:26.:20:32.

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

:20:32.:20:42.

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

:20:42.:20:47.

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

:20:47.:20:51.

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

:20:51.:20:53.

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

:20:53.:20:54.

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

:20:54.:20:56.

Portugal, including his memories of being the Manchester United captain

:20:57.:21:04.

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

:21:04.:21:14.
:21:14.:21:18.

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

:21:18.:21:26.

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

:21:26.:21:31.

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

:21:31.:21:41.
:21:41.:21:45.

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

:21:45.:21:54.

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

:21:54.:22:02.

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

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:12.

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

:22:12.:22:21.

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

:22:21.:22:28.

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

:22:28.:22:34.

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

:22:34.:22:41.

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

:22:41.:22:51.
:22:51.:22:51.

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

:22:52.:22:56.

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

:22:56.:23:02.

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

:23:02.:23:06.

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

:23:06.:23:11.

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

:23:11.:23:16.

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

:23:16.:23:19.

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

:23:19.:23:25.

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

:23:25.:23:35.
:23:35.:23:39.

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

:23:39.:23:42.

noise to a minimum during a programme of night flying in

:23:42.:23:45.

Lincolnshire. Typhoons based at RAF Coningsby are training during the

:23:45.:23:53.

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

:23:53.:24:03.
:24:03.:24:05.

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

:24:05.:24:08.

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

:24:08.:24:12.

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

:24:12.:24:14.

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

:24:14.:24:18.

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

:24:18.:24:22.

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

:24:22.:24:27.

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

:24:27.:24:31.

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

:24:31.:24:36.

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

:24:36.:24:41.

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

:24:41.:24:46.

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

:24:46.:24:54.

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

:24:54.:24:57.

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

:24:57.:25:01.

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

:25:01.:25:04.

widely. Do people here in Horncastle still understand the Lincolnshire

:25:04.:25:13.

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

:25:13.:25:16.

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

:25:16.:25:19.

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

:25:19.:25:25.

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

:25:25.:25:31.

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

:25:31.:25:36.

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

:25:36.:25:41.

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

:25:41.:25:48.

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