Good evening. The headlines: More than 250 schools in east Yorkshire

:00:00.:00:18.

and Lincolnshire close because of a strike. It is protecting education

:00:18.:00:26.

long—term. We hope parents will understand and support that. There's

:00:26.:00:32.

anger some from some parents who say they weren't given enough notice of

:00:32.:00:34.

school closures. I am utterly disgusted. Any thought of giving

:00:34.:00:41.

them my support has gone out of the window. Also on the programme: The

:00:41.:00:46.

woman whose family say would still be alive if doctors had not ignored

:00:46.:00:52.

her medical history. A former US president takes his place alongside

:00:52.:00:54.

William Wilberforce and Nelson Mandela. It has been a decent day

:00:54.:01:01.

today. What is in store? We are looking at unsettled conditions.

:01:01.:01:12.

Around 250 schools in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have been affected

:01:12.:01:15.

as staff from the two biggest teaching unions went on strike

:01:15.:01:20.

today. The latest figures obtained by BBC Look North show 148 schools

:01:20.:01:23.

closed completely, 108 were partially shut and 337 schools in

:01:23.:01:32.

this area opened as normal. Members of the NUT and the NASUWT say the

:01:32.:01:36.

walk out was over pay, pensions and conditions. Sarah Corker has this

:01:36.:01:47.

report. 8am and teachers on strike in Hull start their journey to a

:01:47.:01:48.

union rally in joined thousands of others from

:01:48.:01:53.

across Yorkshire and the Midlands. 33 years in the profession, Margaret

:01:53.:01:56.

Atkinson is striking over changes which could see teachers working

:01:56.:02:05.

longer. I don't think I could be working in my 60s because I think I

:02:05.:02:11.

would be worn out. I think we want teachers to be better. Do you think

:02:11.:02:20.

68 is too old to be teaching? Yes, definitely. And their list of

:02:20.:02:23.

grievances is growing. Teachers are unhappy about reduced pensions,

:02:23.:02:26.

working until they are 68, excessive workloads and unqualified teachers

:02:26.:02:32.

in the classroom. The government maintains the reforms are driving up

:02:32.:02:37.

standards. Teachers are being forced to go on strike because Michael Gove

:02:37.:02:41.

will not speak to the unions. It is not just a one—day inconvenience, it

:02:41.:02:47.

is protecting education long—term. Teachers are unhappy about reduced

:02:47.:02:53.

pensions. The main bone of contention is performance—related

:02:53.:02:55.

pay, head teachers setting salaries, teachers only moving up the pay

:02:55.:02:58.

scale if they meet certain standards. Parents and the public in

:02:58.:03:16.

general, it will undermine teachers, and they will have the best pensions

:03:16.:03:19.

available to anybody across the land. Some schools were left with

:03:19.:03:24.

not enough staff and forced to shut. Others were able to open as usual,

:03:24.:03:30.

like the South Cave Primary. We were totally unaffected. None of the

:03:30.:03:34.

teachers took any action so all classes were normal. Either publicly

:03:34.:03:40.

to have sympathy? I'm not sure. That is up to the public. The situation

:03:40.:03:47.

is intolerable. Why are you striking? Because I wanted to take

:03:47.:03:51.

industrial action for the good of the young people in Bridlington.

:03:51.:03:55.

Both sides say they are willing top re—open talks, but until that

:03:56.:03:59.

happens pupils will be caught in the middle. For many parents who were

:03:59.:04:07.

meant to go to work today there has been disruption and loss of earnings

:04:07.:04:10.

as they arranged for alternative childcare. Jessica Lane has been to

:04:10.:04:14.

meet two families to see the impact today's walk—out had on them. Ellie

:04:14.:04:19.

May only started school in September. Her dad says one of those

:04:19.:04:32.

lessons is about attendance. I've said to her she has not to go to

:04:32.:04:37.

school. We have to do certain things. Chris tried to take both

:04:37.:04:42.

kids to school today. He says he'd be fined sixty pounds if he took

:04:42.:04:53.

them out of school for a holiday. My wife has cancelled three

:04:53.:04:58.

appointments. If she cannot get those appointments back they will be

:04:58.:05:02.

getting fined, her loss of earnings, which they do not want to pay

:05:02.:05:04.

because that will be lots, somebody is going to be paying for it.

:05:05.:05:11.

Lynsey's a childminder and is looking after her own and other

:05:11.:05:15.

people's children. My sister is a teacher and it does not finish at

:05:15.:05:19.

the end of the day. She is constantly working weekends,

:05:19.:05:23.

paperwork, planning. You think about what you can do, if I did not look

:05:23.:05:27.

after them regularly, what would they do? Parents say more strikes

:05:27.:05:30.

could mean more disruption. Leaving them needing a helping hand. I'm

:05:30.:05:38.

joined now by Rhoda Andrew Chow from the National Union of Teachers. Good

:05:38.:05:43.

evening. Parents watching tonight, will they have much sympathy? What

:05:43.:05:47.

they have done for the children's education today and having to fork

:05:48.:05:51.

out for childcare. Lots of the parents that I met today when we

:05:51.:05:55.

were out in Sheffield were in support of the action that teachers

:05:55.:06:02.

have taken. Teachers are concerned that people have been

:06:02.:06:05.

inconvenienced, but they have taken the action it cause it is the last

:06:05.:06:09.

resort. It is the only thing they can do. The average teaching salary

:06:09.:06:15.

is £33,000 per year. 13 weeks holiday. Lots of people watching

:06:15.:06:20.

would love those conditions. Why are you not happy? We would love those

:06:20.:06:26.

conditions as well for other people in the public sector and the private

:06:26.:06:37.

sector. We do not believe the government are driving it down. It

:06:37.:06:40.

is the teachers who should continue to have good salaries. One of the

:06:40.:06:49.

issues is performance related pay. Why should they not be given an

:06:49.:06:55.

incentive? There has already been a pay system for a great number of

:06:55.:06:59.

years but is in place that allows for teachers to be paid good and

:06:59.:07:05.

fairly by introducing more performance related pay, it is going

:07:05.:07:09.

to disadvantage all teachers because we can see that there will be a

:07:09.:07:15.

drive down. 73% of your members either did not vote or voted against

:07:15.:07:18.

the strike. What will they be thinking? Most of them will be in

:07:18.:07:23.

support of the teachers that did go out today. They did not vote

:07:23.:07:31.

though, did they? But the majority voted for strike action because they

:07:31.:07:34.

could see that there was no alternative, Michael Gove has

:07:34.:07:39.

continued... Will you meet Michael Gove? We would be willing to meet

:07:39.:07:43.

with him. That is what we have wanted to do, and if he would do the

:07:43.:07:46.

same as the Welsh government and meet them we would not have to go

:07:46.:07:49.

forward with strikes. Good to see you. Thank you for coming in. We

:07:49.:07:58.

would like to know what you think about it. Do they have a right to

:07:58.:08:03.

take a stand? If you want to get in touch...

:08:03.:08:18.

Many parents have been affected, we will have your thoughts on this

:08:18.:08:29.

before 7pm. In a moment: The BBC is seeking nominations for the unsung

:08:29.:08:34.

hero of sport 2013. We visit last year's winners. Hannah Pudsey from

:08:34.:08:42.

East Yorkshire lived for eleven years after being given a new heart

:08:42.:08:46.

at the age of just twelve. Today a coroner decided her death last year

:08:47.:08:50.

was due to natural causes but Hannah's mother has described the

:08:50.:08:53.

care her daughter received at Hull Royal Infirmary as inadequate. She

:08:53.:08:55.

believes Hannah might have survived if her complicated medical history

:08:55.:09:00.

had been considered. Our health correspondent, Vicky Johnson

:09:00.:09:07.

reports. She was just 13 when she had her heart transplant and her

:09:07.:09:14.

bravery and determination made her a poster girl for organ donation.

:09:14.:09:21.

You're not the only one, there are loads of kids waiting for hearts and

:09:21.:09:27.

organs. An inquest in Hull today heard how she died hours after being

:09:27.:09:31.

admitted to the Royal infirmary in February last year. Doctors

:09:31.:09:39.

diagnosed her with a complication of diabetes and she was transferred to

:09:39.:09:44.

a specialist ward. Nobody consulted her doctors in Newcastle where she

:09:44.:09:47.

was regularly monitored. Her mother told the coroner her care had been

:09:47.:09:52.

inadequate. There was a lot of information not being relayed from

:09:52.:09:55.

one doctor to another and she was left a long time without further

:09:55.:10:03.

blood tests being ordered. The coroner said an admission to the

:10:03.:10:09.

high dependency unit and the conversation with the cardiologist

:10:09.:10:11.

might have made a difference. They could not save a definite that it

:10:11.:10:17.

would have. He added that he was satisfied there were no missed

:10:17.:10:22.

opportunities. Hannah took every opportunity to raise awareness, even

:10:22.:10:27.

her 21st birthday. Lots of people never get round to doing it. They

:10:27.:10:34.

say they will sign up tomorrow. That tomorrow never comes. Her mother has

:10:34.:10:41.

echoed those sentiments. She has supported transplants. It is not a

:10:41.:10:44.

cure but she always believed everybody should have a chance. More

:10:44.:10:50.

than anything, she wanted her wedding day in July and it was a

:10:50.:10:53.

shame that she did not live to fulfil that greatest wish. Well the

:10:53.:11:01.

coroner related —— recorded accidental causes, the hospital

:11:01.:11:04.

trust accepted they could have supported the family better. It is

:11:04.:11:08.

hoped they can learn from this tragic event. A jury has failed to

:11:08.:11:14.

reach a verdict, in the trial of a woman accused of paying a hit

:11:14.:11:20.

who's 36 and from Hollym near Withernsea, is waiting to hear if

:11:20.:11:23.

she'll have to face another trial, after the jury at Hull Crown Court

:11:23.:11:30.

was discharged. Darren Wilson, who's 45 and from North Hull, was found

:11:30.:11:35.

guilty of conspiracy to murder. A former Mayor of Cleethorpes has been

:11:35.:11:39.

found not guilty of performing a sex act in front of children. But

:11:39.:11:41.

Conservative councillor Keith Brookes was given a restraining

:11:41.:11:44.

order banning him from sunbathing naked in his garden for five years.

:11:44.:11:47.

He denied outraging public decency at Grimsby Crown Court. Hospital

:11:47.:11:56.

managers in Lincolnshire say they've made improvements to services after

:11:57.:11:59.

being put into special measures. They say death rates have fallen and

:11:59.:12:03.

a hundred nurses have been taken on since the hospitals in Lincoln and

:12:03.:12:06.

Boston were criticised in the Keogh Report. There will be a new

:12:06.:12:11.

inspection early next year. The Unite trade union says that up to 13

:12:11.:12:15.

staff could lose their jobs at Bridlington Hospital under plans for

:12:15.:12:18.

patient meals to be cooked off site. The proposals would see food

:12:18.:12:21.

prepared in York. Managers say they will try and redeploy workers, but

:12:21.:12:24.

Unite say they will oppose redundancies. Still to come: We

:12:24.:12:37.

reveal which former US President has been recognised at the "home of

:12:37.:12:39.

freedom". National Older People Day. Age is

:12:39.:12:47.

just a number, as these ladies prove.

:12:47.:12:58.

Keep your photos coming in. This was taken at RAF Coningsby by John

:12:58.:13:22.

Heard. Good evening. Where's Paul? I have to get on with the forecast. He

:13:22.:13:30.

is on a course. A weather forecasting course. He was the only

:13:30.:13:34.

one asked to go on it. You have made my day. We will see if he is any

:13:35.:13:46.

better. Tomorrow is not going to be very nice. Some beautiful sunshine

:13:46.:13:49.

and we expect some rain in the forecast tomorrow. It is caught a

:13:49.:13:55.

sea of this awkward at front —— it is because of this weather front.

:13:56.:14:00.

The breezy conditions will be the theme of the weather for the next

:14:00.:14:03.

few days. Here the satellite picture. The rain will spread

:14:03.:14:10.

tomorrow. At the moment, we have some clear skies. Some variable

:14:10.:14:14.

amounts of cloud. Overnight, it will break to allow some clear spells.

:14:14.:14:22.

Largely drive. It will be double—figure temperatures. It will

:14:22.:14:31.

remain breezy throughout. The sun will rise just 7am. It will set at

:14:31.:14:37.

6:30pm. The time of high water will be 455 a.m.. —— 450 5am. As we head

:14:37.:14:44.

through the morning, you can see this band of rain pushing up. There

:14:44.:14:50.

will be heavy spells. It will clear off to the north. The rain will

:14:50.:14:54.

become like and patchy. Still the risk of showers. Perhaps a little

:14:54.:15:00.

brightness as well. It is going to be rather breezy for a time

:15:00.:15:03.

tomorrow, and the wet weather and the rain will mean it feels a little

:15:03.:15:08.

miserable. Temperatures will be around average for the time of

:15:08.:15:14.

year, ranging from 14—16 degrees. On Thursday, it will be a decent day

:15:14.:15:19.

and it will cloud over. There will be some rain towards the evening

:15:19.:15:25.

hours. Scattered spells of showers coming on the weekend. You can ask

:15:25.:15:32.

Paul tomorrow. The look of panic in your face when I asked where he was.

:15:32.:15:39.

Fantastic. Don't get me into trouble. The damage is done. The

:15:39.:15:45.

winners of last years BBC Sports Unsung Hero say the award helped

:15:45.:15:48.

transform their club's profile. Tina Parker and Len Gooch won the 2012

:15:48.:15:52.

award for their work at a judo academy. Our sports reporter Simon

:15:52.:15:55.

Clark has been to see how their success changed Judo in Scunthorpe.

:15:55.:16:02.

Former and her father Len Gooch started the

:16:02.:16:07.

Kwai Academy a decade ago in a wooden hut. Now their newly

:16:07.:16:11.

refurbished centre on Scunthorpe Hebden Road is a state—of the—art

:16:11.:16:15.

facility for the sport. A grant from Sport England helped but so too

:16:15.:16:18.

recognition of winning the BBC's Unsung Hero award. We have achieved

:16:18.:16:28.

a lot since we done it. We will improve the club and everything.

:16:28.:16:33.

There has also been schools. It has got a load a bit more. It has helped

:16:33.:16:39.

us overall. It is been really good. Tina and Len have always put the

:16:39.:16:42.

emphasis on coaching youngsters and introducing them to the sport that

:16:43.:16:46.

they love. Now they come from not only Scunthorpe but all over

:16:46.:16:48.

Lincolnshire to practise, especially now the facilities are the best.

:16:48.:16:57.

Since they won it has an very good because there is lots of space. They

:16:57.:17:01.

have had more people coming in, people doing judo and it is a better

:17:01.:17:08.

place for us. Last year there was not many people coming but now there

:17:08.:17:16.

is a lot more people coming. Me and my dad, getting on with what we like

:17:16.:17:24.

doing. When they were saying we were wonderful and the kids were enjoying

:17:24.:17:30.

it, that is the plan. This is the trophy they were awarded. If you

:17:30.:17:31.

know somebody worthy of a nomination, logon to the BBC

:17:31.:17:42.

website. You will find it in the sports personality section. British

:17:42.:17:47.

judo is now looking at the gym as a potential centre of excellence, all

:17:47.:17:51.

helped by a nomination for the unsung hero awards. To make a

:17:51.:18:01.

nomination go on to the BBC sport website. All the information is

:18:01.:18:02.

there. A review into policing arrangements,

:18:02.:18:13.

that led to West Yorkshire Police putting restrictions on Hull City

:18:14.:18:16.

fans travelling to the Huddersfield game, has been completed. Some

:18:16.:18:19.

Tigers supporters boycotted the match in March against Huddersfield

:18:19.:18:22.

Town in protest, after being told they could only travel to the

:18:22.:18:30.

stadium using club transport. They will be without their top scorer for

:18:30.:18:36.

a month. Tom Brady, after having an operation, has been ruled out. The

:18:36.:18:42.

winger Tom Briscoe has been selected as part of Steve MacNamara's England

:18:42.:18:46.

squad for the Rugby League World Cup. Briscoe scored twice in Hull's

:18:46.:18:49.

final game of the season which was also his last for the club as he

:18:49.:18:53.

will move to another un—named team this winter. England will play Fiji

:18:53.:18:57.

at the KC Stadium on the 9th of November. I think we have got some

:18:57.:19:04.

ability to finish off some things. We have got some genuine speed. That

:19:04.:19:10.

is how an international team should be. Most of the attributes needed to

:19:10.:19:17.

compete. We know the teams we are competing against the will have that

:19:17.:19:24.

as well so it is game on. England have wailed —— England have named

:19:24.:19:32.

the team 20 squad including an athlete from our area. The team will

:19:32.:19:42.

tourist really over the winter. A big response on the subject of

:19:42.:19:46.

libraries, and a petition against plans to cut libraries. The County

:19:46.:19:51.

Council wants volunteers to take over their running as it seeks to

:19:51.:20:00.

save money. There's been a mixed response on this subject. Dave in

:20:00.:20:02.

Lincoln says it's important libraries are kept open, saying,

:20:02.:20:05.

"Whilst it is recognised that a minority of people use a library,

:20:05.:20:09.

these tend to be the vulnerable and disadvantaged in our society — the

:20:09.:20:12.

elderly, unemployed and children. We must protect their interests." But

:20:12.:20:14.

Stewart Waddell in Grimsby disagrees. He says, "Libraries are

:20:14.:20:18.

used by the few and paid for by the many, close them all and save us

:20:18.:20:22.

taxpayers the money". Kevin in Goole is also happy to see libraries

:20:22.:20:29.

closed. He says "People have to move with the times. Libraries are not as

:20:29.:20:33.

essential as they used to be hence cuts. I would prefer my taxes to go

:20:33.:20:36.

to more essential services." Thank you for those. Here is one of the

:20:36.:20:42.

most famous American presidents, and today, Abraham Lincoln has been

:20:42.:20:45.

commemorated in the same place as William Wilberforce. It is thanks to

:20:45.:20:55.

a monument. Called the Wall of Names, it honours the world's most

:20:55.:20:58.

influential human rights campaigners. And today, people

:20:58.:21:01.

travelled from the USA to see the latest name added to it. Anne—Marie

:21:01.:21:07.

Tasker was there. Songs from the Hope Choir greeted the hundred

:21:07.:21:11.

people who'd come to see the latest addition to Hull's Wall of Names.

:21:11.:21:14.

Watched by dignitaries and helped by schoolchildren from Hull, the US

:21:14.:21:16.

Embassy's Cultural Attache unveiled the name Abraham Lincoln. It was a

:21:16.:21:26.

huge honour for me, personally, as an admirer of Abraham Lincoln, but

:21:26.:21:32.

as an American to see that in every corner of the UK they honour and

:21:32.:21:36.

recognise the significance of Abraham Lincoln and his role in

:21:36.:21:41.

history and human rights. That speech has been made by how many

:21:41.:21:44.

sons since the war began? Lincoln is known worldwide. He's been

:21:44.:21:47.

immortalised in film — and the only historical figures more written

:21:47.:21:50.

about than him are Jesus and Napoleon. He's not just one of

:21:50.:21:53.

America's most famous presidents but the man who abolished slavery in the

:21:53.:21:58.

US. And that's why he's been recognised on the wall that stands

:21:58.:22:02.

in the shadow of the birthplace of anti—slavery campaigner William

:22:02.:22:10.

Wilberforce. This is an incredibly memorable occasion, to have the 16th

:22:10.:22:14.

president of the United States recognised on this great Wall is

:22:14.:22:16.

quite an honour. of William Wilberforce because of

:22:16.:22:23.

the deeds they did in bringing slavery to an end. Abraham Lincoln

:22:23.:22:28.

at the same time, positions himself alongside those figures. There is a

:22:28.:22:34.

connection there and we celebrate that. The wall already honours the

:22:34.:22:37.

world's most famous freedom campaigners — Nelson Mandela, Martin

:22:37.:22:40.

Luther King, Sylvia Pankhurst and Hull's William Wilberforce. On the

:22:40.:22:48.

150th anniversary of his speech that freed slaves in America — Abraham

:22:48.:22:54.

Lincoln joins them. Anne—Marie is live in Hull's museums quarter

:22:54.:22:57.

tonight, why are today's events so significant? Is in the building

:22:57.:23:07.

behind this whole they study slavery and emancipation and there are fewer

:23:07.:23:10.

more globally recognised names than Abraham Lincoln. The reason it has

:23:10.:23:17.

gone up now, it is 150 years since he gave the speech that led to the

:23:17.:23:23.

end of slavery. It is probably not the last time we are going to honour

:23:23.:23:27.

the Rolling Stones or Dame Judi Dench as helpless pensioners but

:24:14.:24:17.

many older people still get a bad press. Seen as a burden on society.

:24:17.:24:23.

Today is National Older People's Day, and an event was held at Hull's

:24:23.:24:27.

Guildhall to celebrate the aging process and show that 'growing up'

:24:27.:24:30.

to be that way. We have people in their 80s and 90s here who do not

feel old. What we have evidence of an shown is they do not appear old.

:25:18.:25:27.

They are not alone. Hilary Clinton could be the next US president, the

pension before she got her first Oscar. And despite a combined age of

nearly 300, the Rolling Stones headlined the Glastonbury festival.

:25:37.:25:46.

Even though the event is about letting people know what support

:25:46.:25:50.
