warmer. That is it from us. Now the news teams where you

:00:00.:00:13.

are always there for us. I suppose they are more like friends. The

:00:13.:02:02.

Minimum Practice Income Guarantee is a top up payment given to some GP

:02:02.:02:08.

practices. In East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, 63 surgeries receive

:02:08.:02:18.

it, getting a total of £2.3 million. The NHS is phasing it out to create

:02:18.:02:22.

a fairer system of funding for GPs with money shared out more

:02:22.:02:24.

equitably, depending on the numbers of patients and their needs. The

:02:25.:02:29.

government is choosing to take away from doctors a large sum of money

:02:29.:02:33.

that we use to pay for our staff. It is inevitable this is going to

:02:33.:02:36.

affect patient services. It's several tens of thousands of pounds

:02:36.:02:39.

per year, per practice. GPs are going to struggle to keep going with

:02:39.:02:44.

this sort of loss. Villagers here in Rippingale in Lincolnshire know what

:02:44.:02:52.

effect closures can have. The doctors' shut in March, its school

:02:52.:02:55.

and full—time post office have gone, too. Awful, another service gone.

:02:55.:02:58.

There will be people, possibly, isolated in their own homes, who we

:02:58.:03:01.

don't know about, who might be suffering. It's an attractive place

:03:01.:03:05.

to live but come winter some parts of the countryside can be completely

:03:05.:03:09.

cut off. That's when the true value of rural surgeries is felt, but they

:03:09.:03:13.

are expensive to run. Some getting twice the amount of money, per

:03:13.:03:18.

patient, than city practices. The government says that has to stop.

:03:18.:03:24.

It's starting in 2014. They're taking seven years to allow GP

:03:24.:03:27.

practices to adjust to the fact they're only going to get paid for

:03:27.:03:31.

the patients they actually have. So some surgeries will actually get

:03:31.:03:34.

more money, others will have to find a way to provide the same service

:03:34.:03:50.

with less. I'm joined by Dr Richard Vautrey, who represents the British

:03:50.:03:52.

Medical Association who speak on behalf of GPs. Good evening. What

:03:52.:03:57.

effect do you think getting rid of these top up payments will have on

:03:57.:04:02.

smaller GP practices? It could have a major impact. It is a direct

:04:02.:04:08.

result of a government imposing unacceptable contract changes

:04:08.:04:12.

against the will of GPs and against the advice of the BMA. They simply

:04:12.:04:15.

did not listen to us about how damaging these changes could lead if

:04:15.:04:20.

they did not implement them in the right way. Isn't this just GPs

:04:20.:04:26.

saying that they want more money? It is not about more money, it is about

:04:26.:04:31.

how the money is distributed. There will be some practices the game as a

:04:31.:04:36.

result of this process but there will inevitably be some outliers and

:04:36.:04:42.

it might well be that some small, rural practices would not be

:04:42.:04:44.

sustainable on a national contract will need that additional money to

:04:44.:04:52.

enable services to continue. If you see more patients, you should get

:04:52.:04:55.

more money, it is as simple as that, surely? We should ensure that

:04:55.:05:02.

practices can be sustainable but there are some special

:05:02.:05:06.

circumstances. Some practices will not be sustainable. We have to look

:05:06.:05:12.

at each individual practice very carefully. There will be those

:05:12.:05:18.

outliers that need to be looked at. People will be interested in this

:05:18.:05:24.

from rural places. Could some GP surgeries have to close down because

:05:24.:05:28.

they cannot be sustained? I hope that is not the case, but it could

:05:28.:05:32.

be, if the Government does not work with us closely and come up with

:05:32.:05:37.

answers quickly. Practices need—to—know, because this is

:05:37.:05:39.

starting from April next year, and at the moment the Government and NHS

:05:40.:05:45.

England, charged with putting these plans in place, are simply not

:05:45.:05:49.

giving us answers to the questions that we are asking. I'm sure you

:05:49.:06:01.

will have a view on this story, should rural GPs continue to receive

:06:01.:06:03.

extra funding from the Government? Or maybe you think these rural

:06:04.:06:06.

services don't need protecting? We have lost post offices and village

:06:06.:06:09.

shops. Should GP surgeries be ring fenced? You can contact us.

:06:09.:06:18.

In a moment, no guarantees on the future of Lincolnshire's Police

:06:18.:06:29.

commissioner as investigations continue into why he suspended his

:06:29.:06:34.

Chief Constable. It's the busiest time of year for our seaside resorts

:06:34.:06:38.

but one of the main sea front car parks in Skegness will be closed

:06:38.:06:42.

over the weekend after more than a hundred travellers set up camp. East

:06:42.:06:50.

Lindsey District Council says it started legal proceedings as soon as

:06:50.:06:53.

they arrived and hopes to minimise disruption. The travellers who say

:06:53.:06:56.

they've come to Skegness for a celebration, thought to be a wedding

:06:56.:06:59.

could now be forcibly removed. Jessica Lane reports. It is a

:06:59.:07:03.

300—space car park on the seafront with no room for holiday—makers. It

:07:03.:07:09.

has become a travellers site for 100 people and more are expected. The

:07:09.:07:12.

local government secretary Eric Pickles said that councils must act

:07:12.:07:18.

quickly to clamp down on all authorised travellers sites. When

:07:18.:07:24.

this issue happened, the relative is that there was a clear process that

:07:24.:07:29.

we have to go through, in law, and we cannot deviate from that,

:07:29.:07:34.

otherwise we will get nowhere. They have to get court permission to

:07:34.:07:39.

serve the travellers with notice and if they do

:07:39.:07:43.

days they can be forcibly removed. We have spoken to some of the

:07:44.:07:47.

travellers. None wanted to be interviewed but they said they are

:07:47.:07:51.

here for a family gathering and say that they are not planning to stay

:07:51.:07:55.

long—term. One business owner says he welcomes custom from everyone. We

:07:55.:08:01.

had the bar for last night from locals and the travelling community

:08:01.:08:04.

and they got on fantastically well, no problems at all. Townspeople say

:08:04.:08:09.

they are concerned about the possibility of trouble. They have a

:08:09.:08:16.

pitch, they should keep to it. I would have thought they could have

:08:16.:08:19.

picked a better place than a seaside town. The police told me that

:08:19.:08:26.

travellers come every year but there is no increase in crime connected

:08:26.:08:29.

with their visit. They put extra officers on patrol during the summer

:08:29.:08:32.

months but are not concerned about trouble over the weekend. The

:08:32.:08:37.

council says that there will be 24—hour security around car parks in

:08:37.:08:41.

the town to make sure that the rest remain open. Jessica is that the

:08:41.:08:47.

travellers camp in Skegness at the moment. Is there any indication how

:08:47.:08:52.

long they are going to stay? The travellers I have spoke to said they

:08:52.:08:57.

don't expect to be here much longer than the weekend, but this is quite

:08:57.:09:05.

a sensitive issue for Skegness. In 2000, as some people might

:09:05.:09:09.

remember, hundreds of travellers came over Christmas and New Year. It

:09:09.:09:13.

meant some of the bars and clubs closed for a short time. Everyone I

:09:13.:09:18.

have spoken to has said they do not expect anything like that to happen

:09:18.:09:22.

this time round. The police expect this to be a peaceful visit and they

:09:22.:09:26.

expect the travellers to be leaving early next week. A reminder of the

:09:26.:09:38.

ways that you can contact us. Thank you for watching. A children's

:09:38.:09:47.

paddling pool in Hull — believed to be source of a bacteria that made

:09:48.:09:52.

children ill — is to stay closed for the rest of the summer. 18 children

:09:52.:09:55.

from Hull and East Yorkshire had the cryptospiridium bug. Hull City

:09:55.:09:58.

Council says the pool at East Park is still being tested for bacteria.

:09:58.:10:05.

Network Rail says is doesn't know when it will be able to lift a new

:10:05.:10:09.

railway bridge into place in Hull. Engineers say they're being delayed

:10:09.:10:13.

by ground conditions as they try to dig concrete piles. Traffic on

:10:13.:10:18.

Spring Bank is still disrupted. An influential committee of MPs is to

:10:18.:10:21.

visit Lincolnshire as part of its investigation into the role of

:10:21.:10:25.

police and crime commissioners. The Home Affairs Select Committee has

:10:26.:10:28.

criticised the way Lincolnshire's Chief Constable was suspended by the

:10:28.:10:38.

force's commissioner, Alan Hardwick. Yesterday, a report into that

:10:39.:10:41.

suspension cleared the chief constable Neil Rhodes of any

:10:41.:10:43.

wrongdoing. However, the select committee believes questions still

:10:43.:10:46.

remain about the way the matter was handled by the commissioner. It is

:10:46.:10:49.

very clear that there are lessons to be learned as a result of what

:10:49.:10:59.

happened over this issue and I think that Peter Fahey's report draws a

:10:59.:11:05.

line under this issue but people need to learn the lessons that come

:11:05.:11:11.

out of this sorry state of affairs. This story has had a lot of response

:11:11.:11:13.

after we talked about it last night. That is a reference to the crime

:11:13.:12:02.

commission. —— commissioner. Alan Hardwick is also under scrutiny from

:12:03.:12:05.

the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Panel. I spoke to Chris Cook who's

:12:06.:12:08.

leading their investigation and asked him whether they had full

:12:09.:12:11.

confidence in the commissioner. We are looking at the investigation

:12:11.:12:16.

from Sir Peter Fahey. We are carrying out a full review, and we

:12:16.:12:19.

cannot comment on it until we interview the Commissioner, himself.

:12:19.:12:25.

Some viewers have said that Alan Hardwick has lost all credibility.

:12:25.:12:34.

the Commissioner is a waste of time, and that he must now resign. There

:12:34.:12:37.

are two issues, the suspension and the investigation. He was right to

:12:37.:12:41.

launch that investigation. We are looking at the suspension, as a

:12:41.:12:47.

panel. Is it working for him as a Commissioner? It is too early to

:12:47.:12:52.

say. It was new territory for the Commissioner. We are looking at

:12:52.:12:57.

that, as part of our review —— as part of our review. That is not a

:12:57.:13:04.

ringing endorsement. It is still too early to say. Your department's

:13:04.:13:11.

handling of this has been described as shambolic by Keith Vaz MP. Is

:13:11.:13:20.

that right? We have got full control of the situation. You think that the

:13:20.:13:26.

legal bill of £37,000 is money well spent when police budgets are being

:13:26.:13:33.

cut? We look at all the costs, we need to look at the costs of Neil

:13:33.:13:37.

Rhodes, as well in this. We'll Alan Hardwick the Commissioner in a year

:13:37.:13:44.

from now? He was elected as Commissioner last year and it is not

:13:44.:13:49.

in my remit to say that. Will you want Neil Rhodes for this job after

:13:49.:13:54.

everything he has been through? This has been an open, transparent

:13:54.:13:57.

process and if Neil Rhodes applies for that, he will go through this

:13:57.:14:09.

process accordingly. And the story goes on. Coming up on the programme.

:14:10.:14:13.

Setting off on a Premier League journey, Hull city are back in the

:14:13.:14:25.

big time. And we're celebrating the Wolds Way — which after more than 30

:14:26.:14:29.

years — still brings a million people to East Yorkshire each year.

:14:29.:14:34.

Some fantastic pictures coming up in a moment. If you have got a good one

:14:34.:14:38.

to send to us, this one is of the Yorkshire walls near Driffield. ——

:14:39.:14:53.

Wolds. Good evening, Keeley Donovan. One viewer has said that they would

:14:53.:14:59.

like a calendar that will count down to the next holiday for Paul, and if

:14:59.:15:04.

you could put it on the back of a signed photograph, that would be

:15:04.:15:10.

better. Thank you very much for that. I want see you for another

:15:10.:15:20.

week, Peter, how will you get by? Temperatures rose to 24 Celsius

:15:20.:15:25.

today, and it will be more unsettled tomorrow. We'll be breezy with rain

:15:25.:15:33.

at times. You can see those isobars tightly packed. On Sunday it will be

:15:33.:15:45.

breezier still. We have had some good spells of sunshine today.

:15:46.:15:46.

Temperatures reaching It will stay dry tonight. Cloud will

:15:46.:15:57.

tend to thicken with temperatures falling back to around 13 Celsius.

:15:57.:16:02.

Tomorrow morning, that Breeze will pick up.

:16:02.:16:10.

Chamorro, cloud will continue to thicken. It will not be washed out,

:16:10.:16:20.

but it will be quite breezy, so it could feel cooler, and we will have

:16:20.:16:25.

spells of rain pushing in from the west. The breeze is going to pick up

:16:25.:16:30.

later tonight and into tomorrow, it could become gusty at times with

:16:30.:16:42.

temperatures tempered by that breeze. Sunday is going to be

:16:42.:16:49.

brighter. You cannot rule out some showers across parts of

:16:49.:16:52.

Lincolnshire. It will still be correct breezy. It will be variable

:16:52.:16:59.

cloud and more breezy weather on Monday. Some fine weather to come as

:16:59.:17:07.

pressure builds next week. I was cruel reading out that letter from

:17:07.:17:11.

Keith, and embarrassing him. It is Keith Taylor of Laceby Road,

:17:11.:17:23.

Grimsby. He likes you! Have a nice weekend. A farmer from East

:17:23.:17:33.

Yorkshire has narrowly missed out on a place in the Guinness Book of

:17:33.:17:36.

Records, for growing the world's biggest yield of barley. John

:17:36.:17:39.

Porter, who's farm is near Aldborough, had a crop which

:17:39.:17:42.

measured at 11.9 tonnes for every two and a half acres but needed 12.2

:17:42.:17:46.

tonnes for a place in the record books. It's just 48 hours before

:17:46.:17:49.

Hull City step out on to football's biggest stage. The Tigers kick—off

:17:49.:17:59.

their Premier League campaign at the pre—season favourites Chelsea who

:17:59.:18:02.

have Jose Mourinho back in charge. Our sports reporter Simon Clark has

:18:02.:18:06.

been talking to the fans about The Tigers' chances for the coming

:18:06.:18:08.

season. They were taking time out from the harvest at this east

:18:08.:18:14.

Yorkshire farm today. The lifelong Hull City fan was looking ahead to a

:18:14.:18:17.

Premier league season starting at Chelsea. Looking at the game on

:18:17.:18:23.

Sunday against Chelsea, that is a day out, and we will have a hard

:18:24.:18:29.

graft to get points at home, so survival is key. The Premier league

:18:29.:18:36.

is going to be harder than the last time, but we have got better players

:18:36.:18:40.

and a better manager, so hopefully we will be all right. Obviously

:18:40.:18:47.

playing all these big teams again, hopefully, we can stay in the

:18:47.:18:50.

Premier league longer the last time. Nobody knows what the players are

:18:50.:19:02.

feeling better than Dean Windass. He is confident that the club can

:19:02.:19:09.

progress. I think anything is a bonus, if you stay up, if you finish

:19:09.:19:12.

fourth from bottom, that is a massive achievement. Mike Morgan has

:19:12.:19:22.

written about the Tigers for three decades for national newspapers. He

:19:22.:19:25.

thinks that they will do OK this season. It is the younger guys who

:19:25.:19:34.

could be a surprise package that I am looking forward to. And this is

:19:34.:19:40.

the man plotting the downfall of the Tigers. He is called Jose. Teams

:19:40.:19:50.

come from the lower divisions with the fantastic mentality. These are a

:19:50.:19:55.

team that we have to look at these matches. All roads lead to Stamford

:19:55.:20:03.

Bridge, it seems, but this one will take you to your. This will be

:20:03.:20:11.

watched in 183 different countries. Millions of people around the world

:20:11.:20:15.

will be watching Hull City this weekend. So, the Tiger nation is on

:20:15.:20:25.

the move. Destination, Premier League. Someone

:20:25.:20:38.

to Stamford Bridge by mistake. BBC Radio Humberside will have full

:20:38.:20:40.

commentary on Hull City's first match back in the Premier League on

:20:40.:20:43.

Sunday, the coverage starts from three o'clock. Before that they will

:20:43.:20:46.

have commentary on Scunthorpe United's match against Dagenham and

:20:46.:20:49.

Redbridge tomorrow on their FM frequency. Grimsby Town's match at

:20:49.:20:52.

Welling will be on AM, DAB and online. BBC Radio Lincolnshire will

:20:52.:20:55.

have full commentary of Lincoln City match against Forest Green.

:20:55.:21:03.

After their derby win, Hull FC play Salford where another victory could

:21:03.:21:08.

guarantee a place in the play—offs. Both teams suffered injuries to

:21:08.:21:11.

players in the game, but Coach Peter Gentle says his side is fully

:21:11.:21:14.

focussed on tonight's match despite their Challenge Cup final only a

:21:14.:21:18.

week away. I think that they will be a dangerous proposition. Ryan

:21:18.:21:20.

McGoldrick will come back to haunt us. We are expecting them, so we

:21:20.:21:28.

will try and protect ourselves. We have got to go at it full tilt. And

:21:28.:21:37.

you can hear commentary of Hull FC's game tonight on BBC Radio

:21:38.:21:40.

Humberside. Kick—off in that match is at 8pm. And they've also coverage

:21:40.:21:47.

from Hull KR's match with Leeds Rhinos from eight o'clock as well.

:21:47.:21:55.

140 tribute acts will arrive in East Yorkshire this weekend for a music

:21:55.:21:59.

festival. Tribfest, which is in its seventh year will feature groups

:21:59.:22:02.

paying homage to acts like Pink Floyd and the Kings of Leon at

:22:02.:22:06.

Sledmere House near Driffield. When we first started out, we could not

:22:06.:22:09.

afford it, and now we are in the ideal place, miles from anywhere, a

:22:09.:22:18.

beautiful sight. It is the Knebworth of the North! For more than 30 years

:22:18.:22:31.

the Yorkshire Wolds Way has been one of our most scenic and inspiring

:22:31.:22:34.

walks. These days its enjoyed by almost a million people every year

:22:34.:22:37.

but despite that many parts remain largely undiscovered. Over the next

:22:37.:22:40.

four weeks our Environment Correspondent Phil Connell will

:22:40.:22:42.

explore the walks future and meet some of the people who live and work

:22:42.:22:46.

on this dramatic landscape. Tonight he looks at the history of the Wolds

:22:46.:22:50.

Way and how this special part of Yorkshire became a designated

:22:50.:22:57.

National Trail. It could be Yorkshire's best kept secret. After

:22:57.:23:01.

30 years as a recognised tourist attraction, the Wolds Way still seen

:23:01.:23:12.

as an undiscovered gem. It is a journey that starts at the Humber

:23:12.:23:16.

Bridge and winds its way through 79 miles of countryside, ending in the

:23:16.:23:25.

seaside town of Filey. To walk it comfortably takes five or six days.

:23:25.:23:30.

In the 1960s, the story of the Wolds Way began. A group of local ramblers

:23:30.:23:33.

were to have this, their favourite area, recognised as a designated

:23:33.:23:40.

walk. It took 14 years of campaigning but in 1982, the Wolds

:23:40.:23:48.

Way was created and the rest, as they say, is history. These days,

:23:49.:23:54.

around 800,000 people walk parts of the Wolds Way every year. Each of

:23:54.:23:58.

them grateful to those early campaigners, who fought to establish

:23:58.:24:05.

a legal right of way. It was violent at times. The gamekeepers were a bit

:24:05.:24:12.

hard. They had sticks on them. Put people in hospital, and in court,

:24:12.:24:16.

and in prison, but it is a good legacy. Today, preserving the legacy

:24:16.:24:24.

has fallen to a new generation of walkers. These ramblers from Market

:24:24.:24:34.

Weeton walk here at responsibly. —— at least once a week. Do you feel

:24:34.:24:42.

selfish keeping this as a well—kept secret for Yorkshire? A little bit,

:24:42.:24:45.

yes. The distinctive landscape enjoyed by

:24:45.:24:55.

ramblers is also steeped in history. Ancient churches are often

:24:55.:25:01.

at the centre of village life and a long the Wolds Way there is one

:25:01.:25:05.

local family to thank for their survival. This church was pretty

:25:05.:25:13.

much derelict and required a massive amount of work because it had been

:25:13.:25:18.

neglected. employed to renovate 19 local

:25:18.:25:26.

churches. Saint Edith's at Bishop Wilton is a fine example. The floor

:25:26.:25:31.

is an exact copy of one you would find in the Vatican. It is work that

:25:31.:25:35.

today would have cost millions of pounds, and all that was paid for by

:25:35.:25:47.

Sir Tatton Sykes and his son. What would have happened to this church?

:25:47.:25:54.

It would have been derelict. It has been completely reconstructed. That

:25:54.:25:58.

is what would have happened. These churches were not just built for

:25:58.:26:02.
