Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines

:00:04.:00:15.

care standards at a recent inspection.

:00:15.:00:26.

From care, staffing levels, looking after medication, they are not

:00:26.:00:29.

delivering the we expect. Now the Government will send in the

:00:29.:00:32.

best managers to help run the worst hospitals with Lincolnshire and

:00:32.:00:35.

parts of East Yorkshire being targeted. Also on tonight's

:00:35.:00:38.

programme: After a car ends up in their back garden, a family calls

:00:38.:00:46.

for stronger crash barriers. There is speculation all over the

:00:46.:00:49.

place. We speak to the party leader who's

:00:49.:00:52.

refusing to rule out standing as an MP in Lincolnshire.

:00:52.:00:54.

The East Hull gardener who's added another award to his growing

:00:54.:00:58.

collection. The weather looks set to settle

:00:59.:01:00.

down. The very latest in 15 minutes. Hello. Two Lincolnshire hospitals

:01:01.:01:12.

have failed to meet any national care standards. The Care Quality

:01:12.:01:17.

Commission visited Lincoln County and the Pilgrim in Boston after they

:01:17.:01:21.

were put into special measures due to higher than expected death rates.

:01:21.:01:27.

Now a manager from a top performing trust in Sheffield is being brought

:01:27.:01:30.

in to help managers from the United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust improve

:01:30.:01:32.

its services. Caroline Bilton reports.

:01:32.:01:40.

Two months ago they were told they must improve.

:01:40.:01:47.

of five in Lincolnshire placed in special measures. A new daily

:01:47.:01:50.

monitoring system is in place to ensure patients needs are being met.

:01:50.:01:53.

Those working here believe it is helping to drive up standards.

:01:53.:02:04.

We have seen a big difference on Dixon Ward with our standards. It

:02:04.:02:09.

has given me quality assurance every day that every patient on my ward is

:02:09.:02:13.

risk assessed and they are receiving the care that is needed.

:02:13.:02:15.

Today, though, another damning report from inspectors — Lincoln

:02:15.:02:17.

County Hospital and Boston's Pilgrim Hospital are failing to meet any

:02:17.:02:20.

national care standards. The Trust argues it's working hard

:02:20.:02:23.

to improve, but for the foreseeable future, unannounced inspections are

:02:23.:02:26.

going to continue at these two hospitals. These are problems that

:02:26.:02:35.

date back three years. Two years later, patients were found to be

:02:35.:02:41.

dying a necessarily at Stafford Hospital. It prompted an

:02:41.:02:44.

investigation called the key report, which would scrutinise all

:02:44.:02:50.

hospitals. Shortly after that, it was said that things were improving

:02:50.:02:53.

at Boston hospital, and it was meeting targets. That good news was

:02:53.:03:00.

short lived when the Health Secretary placed United Lincolnshire

:03:00.:03:02.

hospitals trust and another trust in our area in special measures. The

:03:02.:03:09.

report had found serious failings at birth. Today, the quiet — — the

:03:10.:03:19.

QC said the hospital trust are failing to meet standards. Unions

:03:19.:03:26.

say this is affecting morale. I talked to nurses today. They feel as

:03:26.:03:32.

if they are being scapegoated for the failings of management. If you

:03:32.:03:36.

do not have sufficient staff, you will get a position where there will

:03:36.:03:40.

be difficulties for the staff to complete all the tasks that I needed

:03:40.:03:45.

to provide the highest standards of care. We have 87 new nurses starting

:03:45.:03:59.

this month. We are actively pursuing international recruitment. Despite

:03:59.:04:05.

the negative reports, patients today seemed happy with the care they were

:04:06.:04:11.

receiving. Absolutely fabulous. Couldn't wish for a better team.

:04:12.:04:19.

Farewell really friendly. — — they were really friendly. My wife just

:04:19.:04:26.

had to treatment and she has been fine. No complaints. The trust

:04:26.:04:30.

argues it is working hard to improve, but for the facility will

:04:30.:04:35.

future, unannounced inspections will continue at least two hospitals.

:04:35.:04:40.

Earlier, I spoke to Julie Walton from the Care Quality Commission.

:04:40.:04:43.

She told me what was wrong with the two hospitals.

:04:43.:04:53.

They are basically not meeting the essential standards from care,

:04:53.:04:56.

staffing levels, record—keeping, looking after medication is, they

:04:56.:05:01.

are just not delivering basic standards. In April, the trust met

:05:01.:05:08.

nearly all of its target. How can things have changed in such a short

:05:08.:05:15.

time? There have been a lot of changes over the summer. A lot of

:05:15.:05:22.

changes have been put in place. Things were looking much brighter.

:05:22.:05:26.

Staff were not reporting things there have been. Are you confident

:05:26.:05:35.

in your organisation 's credibility? The Health Secretary said the

:05:35.:05:37.

organisation was fundamentally flawed when it was better. Is that

:05:37.:05:45.

right? I am very confident in the findings. I am confident we have

:05:45.:05:49.

applied the appropriate methodology. But are you doing more

:05:49.:05:57.

harm than good? The union says staff morale is suffering. What is your

:05:57.:06:03.

message say to nurses who feel constantly scrutinised? It is really

:06:03.:06:09.

down to the trust to take ownership of the problem, and staff who

:06:09.:06:17.

reported two was that this inspection — — and staff reported to

:06:17.:06:23.

those low levels of morale. They were already know and demoralised

:06:23.:06:30.

before we went in. These inspections should result in improvements that

:06:30.:06:34.

will hopefully bring that morale back to the staff. Very good to talk

:06:34.:06:39.

to you. Thank you very much. As well as United Lincolnshire,

:06:39.:06:41.

another trust described as failing in our area will get staff and

:06:41.:06:44.

managers from successful hospitals to help it improve. Northern

:06:44.:06:48.

Lincolnshire and Goole is still waiting to hear from the Health

:06:48.:06:51.

Secretary as to who they'll be paired with. Hospitals in

:06:51.:06:54.

Lincolnshire will work alongside managers at Sheffield Teaching

:06:54.:07:02.

Hospitals NHS Trust. The biggest single thing we can do is give them

:07:02.:07:09.

a partner organisation that is successful, that has done all the

:07:09.:07:19.

things they are trying to do. I think it will make a real

:07:19.:07:21.

difference. We want to hear from you on this

:07:21.:07:25.

story. Do you think the hospitals in Lincolnshire are getting better or

:07:25.:07:26.

worse? of Humber jobs could be compromised

:07:27.:08:02.

unless the Government commits to green energy.

:08:02.:08:09.

A woman from Lincoln is calling on the county council to install

:08:09.:08:12.

stronger crash barriers, after a car careered into her back garden. The

:08:12.:08:16.

vehicle landed in an area where her young daughter had been playing only

:08:16.:08:19.

hours before. Jake Zuckerman reports. Look at all the damage.

:08:19.:08:34.

Lisa Cowley and her daughter, Bethany, examined the damage to the

:08:34.:08:36.

back garden of their family home in Lincoln. This was the scene one

:08:36.:08:39.

month ago after a car left the road, ploughing straight through crash

:08:39.:08:41.

barriers. Coincidently, no—one was outside. It was a lovely sunny day

:08:41.:08:45.

and myself and Bethany we were outside that morning. My husband was

:08:45.:08:49.

out here, just half an hour before it happened. You know, it was

:08:49.:08:55.

incredibly fortunate. Now Lisa and her husband have started a petition.

:08:55.:09:00.

They want the county council to install stronger barriers. I want

:09:00.:09:04.

them to reinforce the roadside barrier on there. It clearly wasn't

:09:04.:09:10.

fit for purpose. The vehicle came through it, it broke through into

:09:10.:09:15.

the garden, quite easily. The council denies there is a problem.

:09:15.:09:20.

We put barriers in where there is a track record of accidents. There is

:09:21.:09:26.

no real history of accidents at this spot and the right approach is not

:09:26.:09:29.

if there is an accident, we spend taxpayers money. In hotspots where

:09:29.:09:35.

people are being killed, that is where I want to spend our money.

:09:35.:09:44.

Lisa and Andrew say they feel it is not safe for the family to use their

:09:44.:09:47.

own garden, and are determined to continue their fight until the

:09:47.:09:55.

council takes notice. An investigation is taking place

:09:55.:09:58.

into a bomb hoax at Lincoln Prison earlier today. Emergency services

:09:58.:10:04.

were called to the jail on Greetwell Road this morning and remained there

:10:04.:10:09.

for several hours. The Prison Service say there was no threat to

:10:09.:10:13.

the public, staff or prisoners. Two petitions campaigning for a

:10:13.:10:16.

swimming pool in Hull to remain open have been handed in to councillors.

:10:16.:10:22.

Hull City Council says closing Ennerdale Pool will save £220,000

:10:22.:10:25.

and ensure that four others in the city remain open. The authority is

:10:25.:10:29.

asking the public for its views on the proposal.

:10:29.:10:35.

The UKIP leader Nigel Farage has admitted that a recent split in the

:10:35.:10:38.

party in Lincolnshire has been damaging. Six UKIP councillors have

:10:38.:10:41.

formed a breakaway group on the county council and their former

:10:41.:10:44.

group leader has been thrown out of the party. In an interview for BBC

:10:44.:10:49.

Look North, Mr Farage refused to rule out speculation that he might

:10:49.:10:52.

stand in Boston and Skegness at the next general election. He's been

:10:53.:10:56.

speaking to our political editor Tim Iredale, who's live at Westminster.

:10:56.:11:08.

So what has Mr Farage had to say? Nigel Friars has been responding to

:11:08.:11:13.

critics who say his party is in a bit of a mess in Lincolnshire. It

:11:13.:11:21.

was confirmed that Chris Payne had been expelled from the party. He is

:11:21.:11:30.

appealing, but Chris Pain is one of six councillors who have now formed

:11:30.:11:36.

a breakaway group from the main audio Lincolnshire county council.

:11:36.:11:42.

They are calling themselves UKIP Lincolnshire. I asked Mr Farage

:11:42.:11:46.

today how much damage this than to his party. Short—term, it doesn't

:11:46.:11:53.

look very good, but it is a question of how we get out of this. The other

:11:53.:12:04.

counties have not suffered this. Chris Pain has gone. The other

:12:04.:12:12.

councillors need to recognise the one the seats with the UKIP label.

:12:12.:12:18.

We need to get reunited. They risk a vacancy when it comes to a UK

:12:18.:12:24.

Parliamentary candidate in the bottom in Skegness constituency.

:12:24.:12:34.

They did very well in the last elections. There has been widespread

:12:35.:12:43.

speculation that Nigel Farage himself make take on sitting Tory MP

:12:43.:12:46.

Maxim and at the next general election. I asked in that question

:12:46.:12:52.

and he said he wasn't really himself in but wasn't running himself out.

:12:52.:12:56.

There are a series of constituencies around the country that look very

:12:56.:13:04.

tempting for UKIP. My absolute priority is to do well at the

:13:04.:13:10.

European elections next year. The UKIP at a conference gets under way

:13:10.:13:14.

tomorrow here in London. One item which caught my eye on the agenda is

:13:14.:13:22.

a discussion on women's rights. It involves the outspoken Godfrey

:13:23.:13:25.

Bloom, who recently said women's talents were more suited to the

:13:25.:13:30.

kitchen and driving a car. That will be interesting, Peter.

:13:30.:13:35.

We are not getting drawn into that. Thank you.

:13:35.:13:38.

Still ahead tonight: The East Hull gardener who's been given another

:13:39.:13:46.

award to add his growing collection. I am in Huddersfield to see if

:13:46.:13:50.

policy can put themselves within 80 minutes of this season 's grand

:13:50.:13:55.

Millington Dale in the wolds taken by Ernie Howard. Fabulous picture.

:13:55.:14:11.

Thank you very much for that. Good evening. Our cameraman Joe Bilton

:14:11.:14:23.

has been in a pulp, and this is a sign outside the Pope. Isn't that

:14:23.:14:30.

fantastic? Fabulous. Can we see that again?

:14:30.:14:34.

Perhaps I can see what the forecast will bring.

:14:35.:14:41.

More accurate than you. Can I just say our cameraman do not spend

:14:41.:14:46.

Thursday 's in the pulpit. The headline for the next day. It is

:14:46.:14:51.

not looking too bad. It is shaping up very nicely. High—pressure

:14:51.:14:55.

starting to dominate, so it will be much brighter and there will be some

:14:55.:14:59.

sunshine around. A little bump in the isobars, and it will be

:14:59.:15:19.

predominantly dry. Part of Lincolnshire have ended the day on a

:15:19.:15:29.

bright note. The chance of a light, drizzly shower. The wind will ease

:15:29.:15:34.

and lowest temperatures will be down to nine or ten Celsius. Cloud

:15:34.:15:57.

amounts will be variable. There should be further sunny spells and

:15:57.:16:06.

all parts will be dry. I think it will be a pleasant day. These

:16:06.:16:11.

average temperatures for the time of year. A nice weekend to follow.

:16:11.:16:20.

Variable cloud, but all parts try and becoming quite warm.

:16:20.:16:31.

I like the way you say, I think. I am designing a poster I will put

:16:31.:16:37.

up. See you tomorrow. I don't think so.

:16:37.:16:42.

OK, touche. Four day week. Thousands of jobs in green energy

:16:42.:16:51.

could be created locally in the next decade. That's according to a group

:16:51.:16:53.

which represents the renewables industry. But Renewables UK is

:16:53.:16:56.

warning that the sector needs more support from Government if it's to

:16:56.:17:02.

fully develop. Its latest report says that the UK has seen a 74%

:17:03.:17:06.

increase in jobs in the sector since 2010. And those already working in

:17:06.:17:09.

the industry say they've noticed a steady growth in the number of

:17:09.:17:15.

opportunities. Here's Paul Murphy. 300 offshore wind technicians are

:17:15.:17:17.

based in Grimsby. using the high street catamarans

:17:17.:17:26.

which shuttle to and from the turbine fields of the North Sea.

:17:26.:17:30.

Plenty of evidence this is a growing industry. That growth is not really

:17:30.:17:35.

reflected in other industries in the UK, and in Grimsby, we started off

:17:35.:17:43.

with just Siemens and Centrica, and now we have more companies.

:17:43.:17:50.

Renewables UK belief 70,000 green jobs could be created nationally in

:17:50.:17:56.

the next year, with the humble winning the lion 's share. This

:17:57.:18:03.

report warns that the government needs to give the industry more

:18:03.:18:06.

support, and says that schools and colleges need to think more

:18:06.:18:10.

carefully about equipping the next generation of renewables workers at

:18:10.:18:15.

the right skills. Government has an energy bill. What we need is to seek

:18:15.:18:25.

government has strong aspirations. A mood of uncertainty has stalled

:18:25.:18:32.

projects, like the proposed Siemens factory in Hull. That does not

:18:32.:18:36.

dampen the spirits at this engineering training Centre, where

:18:36.:18:39.

well—paid green jobs are already a reality. We have supplied

:18:39.:18:44.

apprentices to a number of companies, and we have filled in

:18:44.:18:50.

some positions. opportunities to. A government

:18:50.:18:59.

spokesman said they would continue working with the industry.

:18:59.:19:05.

Thank you for the messages about the big rise in the number of stray dogs

:19:05.:19:08.

in Yorkshire because of irresponsible breeders. We talked

:19:08.:19:18.

about last night. We had there is a particular problem with status dogs,

:19:18.:19:21.

who are abandoned and then are difficult to rehab. We had a big

:19:21.:19:26.

response on this story. Thank you for all of those. Your ideas on the

:19:27.:19:31.

best ways of reducing the number of stray dogs.

:19:31.:19:59.

Many people were saying dog licences should combat. Thank you for all of

:19:59.:20:04.

those. Hull FC are just two games away from

:20:04.:20:09.

an appearance in the Super League Grand Final. The Black and Whites

:20:09.:20:11.

are away at Huddersfield in the end of season playoffs tonight but a

:20:12.:20:15.

defeat would see their season come to an end. Our sports reporter Simon

:20:15.:20:20.

Clark is live at The John Smith stadium. Simon, what are there

:20:20.:20:26.

chances tonight? This is a competition that has not

:20:26.:20:31.

been too kind to Hull FC over the years. They only met one grand

:20:31.:20:37.

final, in 2006. Their opponents Huddersfield, who may have been the

:20:37.:20:41.

league leaders, lost last week, quite unexpectedly. We caught up

:20:41.:20:45.

with some of the Hull FC fans making the journey here. I think they will

:20:45.:20:50.

do pretty well. They have started to turn things round. I am hopeful they

:20:50.:20:55.

will put on a good show. They are going to win, without a doubt. They

:20:55.:21:01.

can go right through to the final. I don't know. We will take it as it

:21:01.:21:11.

comes. Been very consistent. It is going to be tough. When it takes

:21:11.:21:22.

all, loses, the season finishes. — — winner takes all. I cannot get tired

:21:22.:21:28.

of seeing this try from last week. Gareth Ellis added a second, and

:21:28.:21:48.

Hull FC are through to the big game tonight. Craig Murdock is with me.

:21:48.:21:57.

What do Hull have to do? They need to get the attack in order. They

:21:57.:22:03.

have been a bit ropey. They can do it tonight. They need 20 points.

:22:03.:22:13.

Where will they come from? Briscoe is due a good game. They have

:22:13.:22:19.

definitely got potential. Hull FC have got the players. Conditions

:22:19.:22:24.

would be great, I don't think, but they can do it. It has stopped

:22:24.:22:32.

raining here. You can hear how Craig describes the game on the radio.

:22:32.:22:37.

Thank you, Simon. Good luck to Hull FC.

:22:37.:22:40.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce says his team will have to cope with a

:22:40.:22:43.

"passionate atmosphere" if they want a good result away to Newcastle this

:22:43.:22:47.

weekend. The Tigers are 16th in the Premier League having drawn in this,

:22:47.:22:50.

their last game against Cardiff. Bruce says his side have shown

:22:50.:22:53.

positive signs heading into the match at St James' Park on Saturday.

:22:53.:23:05.

We must make sure the atmosphere is handled. It is a pretty passionate

:23:05.:23:09.

place to play football, so we will have two handle that. We will have

:23:09.:23:13.

to be at our best. Grimsby Town have confirmed they've

:23:14.:23:16.

sacked their joint manager Rob Scott for gross misconduct. Scott — who is

:23:16.:23:21.

here on the right — was appointed with Paul Hurst in 2011. He's been

:23:21.:23:23.

dismissed because of an incident during their recent home defeat to

:23:23.:23:29.

Nuneaton Town. The club say Scott has appealed the decision but it's

:23:29.:23:31.

been rejected. its players and supporters after a

:23:31.:23:42.

fight on the pitch during an FA Cup game. It happened at the game

:23:42.:23:47.

between Sleaford Town and Huntingdon on Saturday, and spread to fans from

:23:47.:23:51.

both sides. The match was abandoned just minutes before the final

:23:51.:23:54.

whistle. Huntingdon have also been charged. Both teams will now attend

:23:54.:24:01.

an FA hearing next Wednesday. Dennis Shaw from East Hull has been

:24:01.:24:04.

winning gardening awards for the last three decades. Today he picked

:24:04.:24:23.

up his 131st accolade at the Guildhall in the city, recognising

:24:23.:24:26.

his passion for gardening. On a shoestring budget and with a new

:24:26.:24:28.

design every year, Dennis's colourful displays have brought him

:24:28.:24:30.

a lot of attention. You Sarah Corker has been to meet him.

:24:30.:24:32.

In this small corner of East Hull, Dennis Shaw has his very own slice

:24:32.:24:40.

of the English Countryside. Should every plant in the garden, most of

:24:40.:24:50.

them tell this story. — — most of them tell a story.

:24:50.:24:54.

From bright displays to the more unusual features, this gardening

:24:54.:24:57.

champion has 131 awards. It all started at school. When I was ten

:24:57.:25:04.

years old, at the Maybury school, I won prizes.

:25:04.:25:09.

Today, he picked up another top honour. The

:25:09.:25:13.

talent and work helping other gardeners. That is fabulous.

:25:13.:25:21.

He's certainly made a name for himself. We first met him on Look

:25:21.:25:28.

North 20 years ago. He's also appeared on Gardeners World. But his

:25:28.:25:32.

favourite tale — having lunch with the Queen. We were talking about

:25:32.:25:41.

gardens. I said to her, what is your favourite colour? She said, every

:25:41.:25:48.

flower is beautiful. I got the official tour today. We are looking

:25:48.:25:56.

that way and that way, to see the beauty of the garden. If you ever

:25:56.:25:59.

get down, walk around Europe garden, see the beauty. It works wonders.

:25:59.:26:06.

So as Dennis and wife Beryl add the latest prize to the collection — the
