That's all from the BBC News at Six. It's

That's all from the BBC News at Six. It's goodbye from me and on BBC One

:00:00.:00:04.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight: The

:00:04.:00:13.

Yorkshire MEP Godfrey Bloom faces disciplinary action from UKIP after

:00:13.:00:19.

he describes women as sluts. All of

:00:19.:00:43.

Also on the programme: The Labour leader Ed Miliband tells Look North

:00:43.:00:49.

he'll scrap what his party calls the bedroom tax — if he becomes Prime

:00:49.:00:51.

Minister. The victims of crime waiting longer

:00:51.:00:55.

than a year to see justice done at Lincoln Crown Court. And the shop

:00:55.:01:02.

that has banned mobile phones. It is ignorant. Anyone should have the

:01:02.:01:10.

decency to end the conversation. I will be back later in the programme

:01:10.:01:14.

with a full forecast of the weather. Godfrey Bloom, the outspoken MEP for

:01:14.:01:25.

Yorkshire and the Humber, is tonight facing a formal disciplinary hearing

:01:25.:01:29.

after having the party whip removed. The politician who lives in East

:01:29.:01:32.

Yorkshire has admitted calling women sluts at a UKIP fringe meeting. The

:01:32.:01:45.

leader of UKIP Nigel Farage said the comments were beyond the pale and

:01:45.:01:48.

that Mr Bloom's repeated behaviour was overshadowing the party's work.

:01:48.:01:56.

That is an appalling thing to say. He's a politician known for his

:01:56.:01:59.

oubursts, but today he's pushed his party too far. In one incident,

:01:59.:02:04.

lashing out at a question he didn't like. You have checked out the

:02:04.:02:12.

colour of people 's faces. Disgraceful! Mr Bloom has become

:02:12.:02:17.

infamous for his maveick style of politics. In 2004, the year he was

:02:17.:02:19.

elected to served Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire in Europe, he

:02:20.:02:22.

said "women should clean behind the fridge" when asked about gender

:02:23.:02:26.

equality. In 2010, he was ejected from the European Parliament for

:02:26.:02:29.

using a Nazi slogan against a German politician. In August of this year,

:02:29.:02:31.

Godfrey Bloom referring to foreign countries which

:02:31.:02:44.

received aid as Bongo—Bongo Land. How we can possibly be giving a

:02:44.:02:50.

month when we are in this amount of debt to Bongo—Bongo Land. Earlier

:02:50.:02:55.

this week, he was recorded saying to a group of women at the UKIP

:02:55.:02:59.

conference "this room is full of sluts" after talking about whether

:02:59.:03:11.

they cleaned their kitchens. all of the girls said they didn't clean

:03:11.:03:15.

behind the fridge and I said they were all sluts. It was the joke.

:03:15.:03:19.

Godfrey Bloom dismissed it as a joke. This afternoon, the leader of

:03:19.:03:24.

UKIP said Mr Bloom is his friend but that his beahviour had crossed the

:03:24.:03:31.

line. His behaviour is starting to overshadow all the good things we

:03:31.:03:36.

are saying. He has gone beyond the pale and I think we have no option

:03:36.:03:41.

but to remove the whip from him. By six o'clock, that supsnesion was in

:03:41.:03:44.

force. For now, at least, Godfrey Bloom is adrift in a political

:03:44.:03:47.

wilderness while investigations continue.

:03:47.:03:52.

Well, for the latest, our political editor Tim Iredale joins me from our

:03:52.:03:56.

Leeds studio. Do we know any more about what's going to happen to

:03:56.:04:03.

Godfrey Bloom? We know he has been suspended from the party. The phrase

:04:03.:04:07.

they'd use in these situations is that he has had the whip removed

:04:07.:04:12.

which means he can no longer sit in the European Parliament as a UKIP

:04:12.:04:17.

MEP. It is clear from that clip of Nigel Farage, the party leader, that

:04:17.:04:22.

Godfrey Bloom had become a serial embarrassment to him. I think there

:04:22.:04:25.

was a serious question about his long—term future in the party. I

:04:25.:04:29.

followed his career with great interest. I have watched the gaps,

:04:29.:04:34.

the clangers, the bloomers, and I think while in the past everyone has

:04:34.:04:39.

been able to —— some people have been able to forgive his more

:04:39.:04:45.

controversial amends, even the recent outburst of giving aid to

:04:45.:04:48.

Bongo—Bongo Land land, I think there is a widespread feeling, Peter, that

:04:48.:04:53.

this time he has gone too far. The Labour leader Ed Miliband has

:04:53.:04:57.

told BBC Look North his party would scrap what he calls the bedroom tax

:04:57.:05:01.

if the party is returned to power. This is the Government policy which

:05:01.:05:04.

sees people have their housing benefit reduced if they have a spare

:05:04.:05:09.

room. On the eve of the Labour Party Conference, Mr Miliband has also

:05:09.:05:11.

defended his leadership following criticism from some, including the

:05:12.:05:14.

former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott. He's been speaking to our

:05:14.:05:23.

political editor Tim Iredale. It has been a tricky few months for Ed

:05:23.:05:29.

Miliband in the bruising world of politics. Some of Labour 's big

:05:29.:05:32.

hitters have been good call of his leadership. The former deputy

:05:32.:05:39.

minister and long—term —— long time Hull MP John Prescott said Labour

:05:39.:05:41.

had massively failed to get it case over to the public during the

:05:41.:05:46.

summer. I was offered advice including from our former Labour

:05:46.:05:54.

deputy leader. This is the cost of living crisis. If Labour are to form

:05:54.:05:58.

the next government, the party will have to win back seats like Lincoln

:05:58.:06:03.

from the Conservatives. What did voters in this city actually know

:06:03.:06:06.

about Ed Miliband or what he stands for but a mark can you tell me who

:06:06.:06:11.

that is quite a mark that is Ed Miliband, the leader of the Labour

:06:11.:06:15.

Party. Do you know much about him or his policies? Not really. I know

:06:15.:06:21.

that he doesn't really put himself out very well. I guess that is why I

:06:21.:06:26.

don't really know his stuff. He is the leader of the Labour Party. What

:06:27.:06:33.

does he stand for? Who knows. Lots of things. But some things we don't

:06:33.:06:39.

all agree on. But I can't name them now. Do you know any of his

:06:39.:06:45.

policies? Not really. They haven't announced many, have they? Many

:06:45.:06:56.

voters don't seem to know anything you I do think that is true. There

:06:56.:07:03.

is an opportunity at our conference to focus on the things that matter

:07:03.:07:07.

and the things that we care about. How we create and coming that works

:07:07.:07:13.

for working people and I hope that is what voters in Lincoln and

:07:13.:07:17.

elsewhere will see. Ed Miliband has revealed one new policy

:07:17.:07:28.

announcement. Bedroom tax policy has led to thousands of tellers with one

:07:28.:07:32.

or more spare rooms losing their housing benefit. —— tenants. I think

:07:32.:07:39.

it will make a real difference to families. Other people think it is

:07:39.:07:44.

fair because most of the people are disabled people, . The pressure is

:07:44.:07:57.

on Ed Miliband to land a can of Just a reminder, this weekend's

:07:57.:08:00.

Sunday Politics will be be on air from 11 o' clock on BBC One.

:08:00.:08:07.

In a moment: As one village shop closes every day, the people in

:08:07.:08:17.

rural areas opening their own corner shops.

:08:17.:08:20.

Lincoln Crown Court has been revealed as one of the worst in the

:08:20.:08:24.

country when it comes to the time people have to wait for justice. New

:08:24.:08:28.

figures from the Government show that it takes more than a year for

:08:28.:08:32.

criminal cases to be dealt with and that makes it the fourth longest

:08:32.:08:35.

wait in the country. Phil Connell has the story. It may be one of the

:08:35.:08:45.

country's most attractive Crown courts but when it comes to

:08:45.:08:48.

processing criminal cases, Lincoln is one of the slowest. On average,

:08:48.:08:53.

from crimes being committed, it takes 55 weeks for cases to be

:08:53.:08:57.

completed. According to the Ministry of Justice, that is the fourth

:08:57.:09:07.

slowest in Britain. For Karen and Allen from Boston, their experience

:09:07.:09:10.

of the legal system was even slower. Their son Justin was killed in a

:09:10.:09:17.

work—related accident in 2010. A case for negligence has just been

:09:17.:09:21.

settled at Lincoln Crown Court, three and a half years later.

:09:21.:09:27.

Instead of giving people 28 days to comply, everything is electronic,

:09:27.:09:36.

you would expect if someone was a document of another company, it

:09:36.:09:40.

should be there very quickly. Britain's fastest court in Merthyr

:09:40.:09:45.

Tydfil takes 28 weeks to process cases so why is the legal system

:09:45.:09:52.

here so much slower? Leicester will have four judges sit —— sitting and

:09:52.:09:58.

Lincoln will only have two. It is not surprising there are delays. To

:09:58.:10:03.

make matters worse, by the end of this year, BCP office in Lincoln

:10:03.:10:06.

will close with all cases being transferred to Nottingham. Many fear

:10:06.:10:13.

it will exacerbate the problem and create even longer delays. It is

:10:13.:10:16.

hoped today's league table will highlight the problem and make the

:10:16.:10:17.

legal here in Lincoln.

:10:17.:10:24.

Earlier, I spoke to Bill Waddington a local solicitor specialising in

:10:24.:10:28.

criminal cases and asked him why he thinks cases are taking so long in

:10:28.:10:37.

Lincoln. Well, I think it is quite a complex issue, to be honest. First

:10:37.:10:41.

of all, it depends how we cases there are. It depends what sort of

:10:41.:10:46.

case it is, and it depends how money cases are feeding into Lincoln from

:10:47.:10:51.

outlying areas. Is Lincoln inefficient? Absolutely not. I think

:10:52.:10:57.

the Crown courts around the country are generally speaking struggling at

:10:57.:11:01.

the moment because of course we are going through a period of court

:11:01.:11:05.

closures, Magistrates' Courts closures, —— magistrates are

:11:05.:11:12.

arriving quicker than they did a few years ago. Why does it matter how

:11:12.:11:19.

quickly the case is heard at court? It is generally accepted that

:11:19.:11:22.

justice delayed is justice denied. And it is of course far more

:11:22.:11:26.

efficient for everybody who is involved in a case for it to be

:11:26.:11:31.

dealt with as quickly as possible. There are victims, witnesses and so

:11:31.:11:35.

on and so forth, memories fade, there are defendants who may or may

:11:35.:11:40.

not be in custody who have the pressure of the trial coming up and

:11:40.:11:45.

so on. No one wants to wear such a long time. A year is the average in

:11:45.:11:49.

Lincoln. What can be done to speed rings up? I think Lincoln has had

:11:49.:11:56.

its problems, shortage of court or judges. Other perhaps more slightly

:11:56.:12:01.

efficient areas that are dealing with them speedier perhaps have more

:12:01.:12:06.

court rooms available or more judges available. We have a period here in

:12:06.:12:13.

Hull where there was a backlog and the backlog had to be sent out to

:12:13.:12:17.

Sheffield which was of course very inconvenient for a lot of people.

:12:17.:12:22.

Very interesting to talk to you. Thank you for coming in.

:12:22.:12:25.

A man who repeatedly punched an anti—fascist protester during an

:12:25.:12:28.

English Defence League march in Hull has been sentenced this afternoon.

:12:28.:12:31.

John Claydon, who's an EDL supporter from Derbyshire, hit David Harding

:12:31.:12:35.

during the march in August. Claydon pleaded guilty and was released on

:12:35.:12:41.

probation. He was also fined and ordered to take anger management

:12:41.:12:44.

classes and complete 100 hours of community service.

:12:44.:12:58.

A shop in The owner says he's made the decision because of a growing

:12:58.:13:01.

number of people talking on their phone while being served. He says

:13:01.:13:05.

its good manners for customers to end their conversations before

:13:05.:13:09.

coming into the store. And there are calls tonight for other shops to

:13:09.:13:12.

follow suit. Caroline Bilton reports.

:13:12.:13:17.

They've become a fixture in our lives. We don't like to leave home

:13:17.:13:21.

without them. Everywhere we go, they go with us. And 94% of the adult

:13:21.:13:25.

population in the UK owns one. should there be rules we adhere to

:13:25.:13:38.

when we're using one? This shop in Crow believes so. We have had so

:13:38.:13:45.

many customers come in and stood talking their mobile phones. We are

:13:46.:13:52.

busy at lunchtime and it is hard to communicate. It is distracting and

:13:52.:14:01.

slightly rude. They serve up their sandwiches with a good dollop of

:14:01.:14:04.

courtesy here and they believe the least a customer can do is to return

:14:04.:14:08.

the gesture, but believe it or not it doesn't always happen. If they

:14:09.:14:15.

are gesturing to the menu, to what they want, as opposed to speaking.

:14:15.:14:21.

You have had people who just gesture at the menu rather than asking what

:14:21.:14:28.

they want? yes. So, what do customers think to the mobile ban?

:14:28.:14:35.

It is ignorant. I hate it when people get on the bus and they are

:14:35.:14:41.

on the phone. I think anybody using a mobile phone should have the

:14:41.:14:44.

common sense and decency to at least stop the conversation. That is

:14:44.:14:51.

probably a good idea. You can get the job done as well. I am not

:14:51.:14:56.

surprised a shop has on to this link. They should be commended. I

:14:57.:15:02.

think every shop should do it. Interestingly, the chains are rather

:15:02.:15:05.

scared to implement this sort of rule where as the independent stores

:15:05.:15:10.

are leading the way in mobile phone manners. It's a bold step to take

:15:10.:15:15.

but this store believes putting good manners before profits will benefit

:15:16.:15:22.

their business. We'd love to hear your thoughts on

:15:22.:15:26.

this story. Are they right to take this stand at what they say is bad

:15:26.:15:30.

manners? Or are they being heavy handed? Let us know what you think.

:15:30.:15:56.

Still ahead tonight: Why the future of Hull FC's coach is far from black

:15:56.:16:03.

and white after they were thrashed in the Super League play—offs.

:16:03.:16:09.

The ten—year—old with his double — made from 30,000 toy bricks.

If you have got a picture you up part of, send it in. Waltham

:16:22.:16:29.

An extra pick to windmill and a field of

:16:29.:16:37.

An extra pick to tonight. This is a bonus. This woman got in touch. One

:16:37.:16:45.

of her hens at Grange farm laid this head this morning. It is four inches

:16:45.:16:52.

long, 2.5 inches wide and weighs seven ounces. There it is next to an

:16:52.:16:58.

ordinary egg. She has been in touch with the Guinness book of records.

:16:58.:17:02.

There you are, egg news. Let's get the forecast. I've got an e—mail

:17:02.:17:10.

here from the festival organisers. They are big fans of yours, Peter,

:17:10.:17:14.

they say the ladies who have organised it have a soft spot for

:17:14.:17:17.

you. To quote, if Peter would you turn up in person, it would make the

:17:17.:17:23.

ladies go weak at their knees. Isn't that nice? Good luck to the ladies

:17:23.:17:28.

with the flower show. I hope it goes well. And the weather will be fine

:17:28.:17:33.

for them as well. A lot of settled weather to come. Tomorrow, settling

:17:33.:17:40.

through the morning. That dry day and it will brighten up. The best of

:17:40.:17:43.

the weather will be around tomorrow to time. You can see this area of

:17:43.:17:49.

high pressure building in from the continent. It won't be complete dry

:17:49.:17:57.

and settled. Temperatures will climb over the next few days. Getting

:17:57.:18:01.

above average for the next few days. A lot of sunshine through the course

:18:01.:18:03.

of this morning but a bit more cloud spreading. It has

:18:03.:18:10.

broken in some places so pleasant and to the devil stop this evening

:18:10.:18:15.

and overnight, likely to stay dry. Sun breaks in the cloud will allow

:18:15.:18:24.

for patchy mist and fog to do. Out in the countryside, we could slip

:18:24.:18:28.

back to around seven or eight degrees. The sun will rise in the

:18:28.:18:34.

morning at these times. These are the times of high water. A little

:18:34.:18:40.

bit of patchy mist and fog to start the day tomorrow but this will lift

:18:40.:18:44.

by nine or ten o'clock. There will be a fair amount of cloud through

:18:44.:18:48.

the morning hours. An imprudent throughout the day. A dry day. A dry

:18:48.:18:49.

datacom tomorrow with increasing... a similar day on Sunday, brightening

:18:49.:19:08.

a bit quicker. Simmer story for Monday. Brightening up through the

:19:08.:19:14.

course of the day. Of course, you won't be able to go for the festival

:19:14.:19:21.

because we are meeting for copy. They have been closing at a break of

:19:21.:19:24.

400 a year but the village shop could be making a comeback in parts

:19:24.:19:27.

of Lincolnshire and East Yorks. People are coming together to open

:19:27.:19:31.

their own community shops to take on the supermarkets. Villagers in

:19:31.:19:34.

Scothern in Lincolnshire are among those hoping to establish to revive

:19:34.:19:37.

Queues, they just don't know the affairs correspondent

:19:37.:19:47.

Queues, they just don't know the meaning of the word in the village

:19:47.:19:51.

shop. And the man who serves you is more than a friend more than

:19:51.:19:53.

anything else. The village shop has long been at

:19:53.:19:57.

the heart of rural life. But in recent years, at least one a week

:19:57.:20:01.

has closed across the country. For some in Lincolnshire, that means

:20:01.:20:04.

travelling up to four miles for a pint of milk. In Scothern, villagers

:20:04.:20:07.

find this so frustrating they're planning to open their own

:20:07.:20:10.

cooperative. It'll be in this disused garage in the pub car park.

:20:10.:20:18.

I would like to see the doors thrown open, tables and chairs outside,

:20:18.:20:24.

boxes of fresh fruit and veg. We are going to be a nonprofit making

:20:24.:20:27.

organisation so any money we do make we want to put back into the

:20:27.:20:30.

community. In 1993, there were just 23 community—owned shops. 20 years

:20:30.:20:34.

on, there are over 300. And they are riding the economic downturn, with

:20:34.:20:38.

an average turnover of £157,000, some research suggests beating some

:20:38.:20:39.

supermarkets in terms of sales growth. They do provide this really

:20:39.:20:52.

essential social hub for annuities, especially rural amenities where

:20:52.:20:57.

people can become isolated, people can come together to volunteer in a

:20:57.:21:00.

shop and to be customers and that revives a really vital service.

:21:00.:21:04.

Beccy advised Tealby villagers how to set up this shop. She distributes

:21:04.:21:07.

funding from organisations like Prince Charles Countryside Fund.

:21:07.:21:14.

nicely take over, we have good times and bad times. For no reason what so

:21:14.:21:19.

ever. You can never say Tuesday will be a good day because it varies. So,

:21:19.:21:23.

whether it's gossip or groceries, more communities are helping

:21:23.:21:26.

themselves as they lose vital services.

:21:26.:21:29.

Hull City's manager Steve Bruce says the Tigers go to Newcastle United

:21:29.:21:30.

tomorrow full of confidence. The black—and—white sconces a record

:21:30.:21:41.

number of points. Today, Adam Pearson has ordered a review of all

:21:41.:21:46.

first—team matters. Simon Clark looks at watch this —— what this

:21:46.:21:52.

means. The hunched shoulders and stern expression said it all. Nearly

:21:52.:21:57.

a thousand Hull fans had gone to Huddersfield and it didn't take long

:21:57.:22:01.

to realise there would be known need to purchase tickets. Within minutes

:22:01.:22:04.

of the start, Huddersfield had so many points on the wall, a fightback

:22:04.:22:10.

was of —— out of the question. For Hull, the shorts try was followed by

:22:10.:22:16.

two for this chap. It didn't gloss over the highest number of points

:22:16.:22:23.

conceded by a black and white team. I think we should be able to

:22:23.:22:26.

motivate the players to do better than this. Absently terrible.

:22:26.:22:37.

Terrible. It was not very good. I'm disappointed in what happened here

:22:37.:22:40.

tonight. We will, in the coming weeks, and we will knuckle down and

:22:40.:22:47.

work out over the preseason, what ever you want to call it, . Today,

:22:47.:22:55.

Adam Pearson said he wanted to apologise unreservedly for the

:22:55.:22:57.

embarrassing performance that was produced last night. The club will

:22:57.:23:02.

now undertake a significant review of all areas and matters involving

:23:02.:23:05.

the first—team squad and every supporter who attended the game will

:23:06.:23:09.
