me and on BBC One, we can join the BBC's

:00:00.:00:04.

Good evening, and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:04.:00:08.

The headlines tonight: A Warning about the impact benefit cuts could

:00:08.:00:20.

have on local youngsters. Coming in and out of the factories, the work

:00:20.:00:25.

dies down. If I lost my benefits, I would not be able to survive.

:00:25.:00:30.

A Hull school that cost £15 million to build could shut just ten years

:00:30.:00:37.

after opening. I am here at the Endeavour School which had promised

:00:37.:00:41.

to offer children in the city a bright future.

:00:41.:00:44.

There's strong support for a saved library by one of Hull's most famous

:00:44.:00:54.

daughters. It is the Kindle generation, but this is a place

:00:54.:00:57.

where children learn how to read. A dramatic display to show just how

:00:57.:01:00.

destructive illegal fireworks can be.

:01:00.:01:06.

And don't forget to join me for that all—important weekend forecast. That

:01:06.:01:14.

is in 15 minutes. Scrapping benefits for under—25s who

:01:14.:01:17.

refuse work or training will lead to an increase in homelessness in

:01:17.:01:20.

places like Grimsby, according to one charity.

:01:20.:01:24.

The Conservatives say young people should be prepared to "earn or

:01:24.:01:30.

learn", or face losing the dole. And while a leading homeless charity

:01:30.:01:33.

says it would have a "devastating" effect, the Cleethorpes MP Martin

:01:33.:01:35.

Vickers says unemployed 16—25—year—olds shouldn't

:01:35.:01:37.

automatically get a home from the state. Here's our Political Editor

:01:37.:01:53.

Tim Iredale. This is the East Marsh area of

:01:53.:01:57.

Grimsby, with a number of people claiming benefits out numbers those

:01:57.:02:03.

in work. This area was described as one think tank as a benefit ghetto.

:02:03.:02:08.

According to the Centre for social justice, 51% of the working age

:02:08.:02:15.

population here rely on benefits. This man is 23 and seeks

:02:15.:02:18.

job—seeker's Allowance and housing benefit —— claims. He worries that

:02:18.:02:25.

young people could be the target of the next big welfare crackdown. I am

:02:25.:02:31.

really trying to get a job as well. I have an interview at a factory

:02:31.:02:37.

tomorrow. But even still, humming in and out of factories, the work dies

:02:37.:02:41.

down. If I lost my benefits, it would not be able to survive. David

:02:41.:02:49.

Cameron has suggested that 16—25 —year—olds who shun education,

:02:49.:02:53.

employment or training, would lose their benefits under a Conservative

:02:53.:02:59.

government. One charity claims that that could have a big impact on

:02:59.:03:05.

places like Grimsby. I think that the impact on areas like the North

:03:05.:03:08.

of England is potentially devastating. Our members in the area

:03:08.:03:14.

report that they are already at record numbers of young people

:03:14.:03:17.

approaching them for help with homelessness. If this goes

:03:17.:03:23.

we expect to see a significant increase in the number of young

:03:23.:03:25.

people seeking help with homelessness problems in these

:03:25.:03:30.

areas. However, many conservatives say that they are simply responding

:03:30.:03:33.

to widespread concern about the abuse of benefits. This was the view

:03:33.:03:41.

of some voters in Cleethorpes. I think that some young people could

:03:41.:03:44.

do more than they do, and in a living. There's always a job out

:03:44.:03:50.

there, you just have to keep looking and applying for courses on things

:03:50.:03:56.

that help you get into work. The reality is that if we are going to

:03:56.:04:00.

meet housing demands over the next generation we cannot be providing

:04:00.:04:04.

social housing for people who are only 17 or 18, and expecting the

:04:04.:04:14.

state somehow to pick up the tab. Expect an increasingly heated war of

:04:14.:04:20.

words from politicians and it comes to the Warren welfare. —— the war on

:04:20.:04:31.

welfare. I spoke to The Independent columnist Owen Jones, who is opposed

:04:31.:04:35.

to the changes, and Robert Oxley of The Taxpayers' Alliance, who says

:04:35.:04:38.

people can't have something for nothing.

:04:38.:04:40.

I asked Mr Jones if he agreed with the Prime Minister's approach. Not

:04:40.:04:43.

at all. This will only drive young people into poverty and

:04:43.:04:45.

unemployment, punishing them for the allure of successive governments to

:04:45.:04:48.

provide full—time work. government got rid of the

:04:48.:04:59.

maintenance loans to encourage young people to stay on in sixth form. Is

:04:59.:05:03.

it fair to almost force youngsters into some form of learning rather

:05:03.:05:12.

than working? It is absolutely right that these people have to do more in

:05:12.:05:19.

the current job market. It does not stand you a good chance of getting a

:05:19.:05:26.

job in today's market. Are people being too picky? Some people need an

:05:26.:05:30.

extra push to go out and look for work. Other people just need greater

:05:30.:05:34.

opportunities. Making sure that anyone who is not in work, and 25,

:05:34.:05:39.

who is going to struggle to get on the job market, is doing something

:05:39.:05:44.

further to improve the chances. And other people agree with that, once

:05:44.:05:50.

the Owen? Damian Green, but according to the joseph Rowntree

:05:50.:05:58.

foundation, there are lots of people applying for the one job —— they may

:05:58.:06:03.

agree. You cannot drive people onto the streets and into poverty because

:06:03.:06:06.

of the failure of governments to deal with this huge jobs crisis. But

:06:06.:06:12.

in the last decade we created 3 million jobs and over 2.5 million of

:06:12.:06:16.

those jobs were taken up by people who were not worn in the UK. So how

:06:16.:06:21.

did those people who were younger were not equipped by the education

:06:21.:06:24.

system to take up those jobs, or they were not willing to take up.

:06:24.:06:30.

So. So a system which both equips them and make sure that they are

:06:30.:06:37.

taking up employment available to them, is what is needed. We need to

:06:37.:06:42.

create skilled work, learning from Germany where they have created

:06:42.:06:49.

renewable energy jobs. But in Germany they have eased... Do you

:06:49.:07:07.

accept, Owen Jones, that this is hugely popular with the public? Not

:07:08.:07:15.

true. The latest poll shows that these measures are not universally

:07:15.:07:28.

supported. Young people are sending CDs and not even getting a response.

:07:28.:07:37.

Many of these young people have paid their national insurance and have

:07:37.:07:41.

been kicked out of work. A lot of young people need that leg up on to

:07:41.:07:46.

the jobs ladder. Mr Jones is trying to pull up that ladder from people

:07:46.:07:50.

who have been struggling. The education has so far failed them and

:07:50.:08:00.

they need further training. Very last word, Owen Jones. The work is

:08:00.:08:10.

not there and you are punishing people because of successive

:08:10.:08:18.

government's inability —— successive governments's inability to create

:08:18.:08:27.

jobs. Should 16—25 year olds be able to

:08:27.:08:30.

claim housing benefit and unemployment benefits if they don't

:08:30.:08:32.

earn or learn? You can email us at

message rate for each message. And you can join him on this week's

:08:37.:09:00.

Sunday politics. He will be debating scrapping benefits for young people

:09:00.:09:04.

who will not work or learn. In a moment: Lincoln Ladies look to go

:09:04.:09:09.

out on a high as they prepare for their final match.

:09:09.:09:12.

Just ten years after opening at a cost of £15 million, a school that

:09:12.:09:16.

was supposed to improve standards in Hull could close. Endeavour High

:09:16.:09:22.

School has hundreds of spare places and has been regularly labelled as

:09:22.:09:25.

underperforming by inspectors. Caroline Bilton is live outside the

:09:25.:09:40.

school. What's gone wrong there? There has been a

:09:40.:09:47.

errors. Pure grades, poor reputation. Falling pupil numbers

:09:47.:09:50.

are all a far cry from what it set out When it opened it was to be the

:09:50.:09:54.

jewel in the crown of Hull's education system, costing £15

:09:54.:09:55.

million. To achieve ten years ago. But within

:09:55.:10:00.

six months cracks began to show. The headteacher resigned and since then

:10:00.:10:03.

it has been placed in special measures three times, which not

:10:03.:10:06.

surprisingly has had an effect on its popularity. I do not think that

:10:06.:10:16.

it is a bad idea that it is closing, because I do not think that it is a

:10:16.:10:20.

very good school. My son did not get on very well there at all. It has

:10:20.:10:24.

been struggling for the last three or four years. Their brother goes

:10:24.:10:31.

there, he is 14 now. He has gone to a college learning school. He has

:10:31.:10:36.

been struggling with the teachers. I would not send my two boys there. I

:10:36.:10:40.

walk past their quite a lot and the things that I have heard about it,

:10:40.:10:44.

the reports on it. The school was built to teach 1,200 pupils but

:10:44.:10:47.

there are fewer than 400 pupils now at Endeavour.

:10:47.:10:50.

By 2016 it's predicted there would be just 228 pupils, with the school

:10:50.:10:54.

facing a £1 million deficit each year. It's since been replaced by

:10:54.:11:02.

newer, bigger schools and acadamies created under the Building Schools

:11:02.:11:07.

for the Future programme. Endeavour has struggled to compete,

:11:07.:11:10.

and today the Council announced that it's once—flagship school is now

:11:10.:11:24.

under threat of closure. It was hoped that it could be turned

:11:24.:11:28.

into an academy and no sponsor has come forward so parents have now

:11:28.:11:32.

received letters saying that the closure needs to be considered. A

:11:32.:11:39.

period of conversation dashed —— consultation has now started. No

:11:39.:11:42.

decision on the future has been made. Parents and staff will be

:11:42.:11:47.

consulted and the results of that will be published in January. With

:11:47.:11:50.

the decision is made to close the school then it could close in 2015.

:11:50.:11:54.

A lorry driver from Goole has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for

:11:54.:11:58.

causing the deaths of two soldiers by careless driving.

:11:58.:12:01.

Colin Pattison's lorry hit the back of the soldiers' Army Land Rover on

:12:01.:12:05.

the A66 in Cumbria two years ago. Pattison also received a six—year

:12:05.:12:10.

driving ban. Hull City Council is taking legal

:12:10.:12:13.

action to try to prevent a horse—drive. Officials and police

:12:13.:12:16.

say the event, which often takes place in Hull Fair week, has caused

:12:16.:12:20.

disruption in the past. The search has begun for a Chief

:12:20.:12:23.

Constable for Lincolnshire Police. Temporary chief Neil Rhodes, here on

:12:24.:12:27.

the left with Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick, said

:12:27.:12:30.

recently that he would apply for the job. Safety experts in Lincolnshire

:12:30.:12:36.

have blown up a Vauxhall Corsa to demonstrate the dangers of illegal

:12:36.:12:39.

fireworks. They're asking the public to report

:12:39.:12:42.

anyone selling fireworks in the county without a licence. They say

:12:42.:12:47.

it's a problem in the run—up to November fifth. Jake Zuckerman

:12:47.:12:57.

reports from Waddington. It is a timely warning designed to

:12:57.:13:02.

grab attention. This afternoon pyrotechnic experts set off a car

:13:02.:13:08.

full of fireworks. The idea — to demonstrate the potential danger

:13:08.:13:10.

illegal firework—sellers could cause. What we want to do today is

:13:10.:13:17.

simulate what would happen in a worst—case scenario, a car—boot sale

:13:17.:13:21.

scenario where someone selling illegal fireworks, literally at the

:13:21.:13:26.

boot of the card, unfortunately an accident happens and the car goes up

:13:26.:13:35.

in flames. This is a stark warning about the potential danger of which

:13:35.:13:39.

fireworks pose. It's part of a clamp—down by Lincolnshire's Trading

:13:39.:13:45.

Standards. We always get intelligence about illegal sales of

:13:45.:13:51.

fireworks. What we would like to encourage people to do is to contact

:13:51.:13:58.

us a fair bit earlier. With a month to go before bonfire night,

:13:58.:14:01.

emergency services are keen to get the message across, to make sure

:14:01.:14:04.

that something like this doesn't happen for real. Jake Zuckerman, BBC

:14:04.:14:16.

Look North, Waddington. Still ahead tonight: Some people can't stand the

:14:16.:14:28.

sound of one set of bagpipes — this man says he has more than anyone

:14:28.:14:30.

else on Earth. Tonight's picture is of the sunset

:14:30.:14:46.

at Claxby Top. He was a picture that you do not often see on a Friday.

:14:46.:14:52.

You will have to put up with me today! Baycol bagpipes musical

:14:52.:14:57.

instruments. How did the work that one out?

:14:57.:15:04.

Seeing as we have a guest coming on you please their bagpipes, you

:15:04.:15:09.

probably don't want to say that! The forecast for the next 24 hours

:15:09.:15:14.

looks like not a bad one. Partly cloudy with some sunshine. The risk

:15:14.:15:19.

of one or two showers, but basically a ridge of high pressure should be

:15:19.:15:24.

in charge of our weather. It should be there for much of next week with

:15:24.:15:32.

some pleasantly warm conditions. Almost an Indian summer next week.

:15:32.:15:37.

In the short term, it is windy. We have got one or two wet showers

:15:37.:15:42.

pushing and from the West. They will largely fizzle out. The wind eases

:15:42.:15:47.

towards dawn and we will see temperatures down to 12 or 13

:15:47.:15:53.

Celsius. The sun will rise in the morning at ten past seven. A bright

:15:53.:16:05.

day, variable cloud and some sunshine. The hint of one to light

:16:05.:16:13.

showers. —— one or two light showers. But otherwise we will see

:16:13.:16:18.

some sunny spells developing. The breeze will be right to moderate

:16:18.:16:24.

south—westerly. Temperatures will be generally 17 Celsius. Around the

:16:24.:16:32.

wash, just a degree higher. Sunday looks nice as well, high pressure in

:16:32.:16:37.

charge. It may tend to cloud over at times but we are looking at a fine,

:16:37.:16:43.

bright day. A lovely day to visit the coastal strip. Next week the

:16:43.:16:48.

emphasis is on a lot of fine, dry weather, and really quite warm for

:16:48.:16:52.

this time of the year. That is the forecast.

:16:52.:17:11.

The forecast is always accurate! Nice to see you on a Friday night.

:17:11.:17:14.

Five—day week, it is the future. She is one of the nation's

:17:14.:17:26.

best—loved actresses, and earlier this year, Maureen Lipman joined the

:17:26.:17:30.

campaign to save a small library in her home city of Hull.

:17:30.:17:32.

I spoke to Maureen earlier visited the library close to her

:17:32.:17:37.

childhood home in Hull. After protests and petitions the Hull City

:17:37.:17:39.

Council let volunteers take over its running in order to keep it open.

:17:39.:17:43.

Lincolnshire county council wants to hand 30 of its libraries to

:17:43.:17:48.

volunteers to save millions of pounds. The QB 1000 closures

:17:48.:18:01.

nationwide. —— there could be. If councils are short of money and

:18:01.:18:04.

three quarters of the population do not use them, should they be cut to

:18:04.:18:09.

save money and let that money go to vital services? Will it go to vital

:18:09.:18:16.

services? I do not think it will. I think the library is incredibly

:18:16.:18:20.

vital. It is a place for the community to meet, for

:18:20.:18:26.

get—togethers, parties. This one is in lovely surroundings. You can have

:18:26.:18:30.

all manner of fun here. It should not go. It is not that much money.

:18:30.:18:37.

In Lincolnshire there are 45 libraries, that could drop to 15.

:18:37.:18:48.

That is a great saving of £2 million. Is linking in the running

:18:48.:18:59.

for City of Culture? —— Lincoln? But should be celebrate the fact that

:18:59.:19:03.

all in tears running the libraries now, or should BBC and that that

:19:03.:19:11.

not good thing? I think the library is evolving. What would you say to a

:19:11.:19:25.

bestselling children's author who says that libraries are a drain on

:19:25.:19:34.

tax payers money. Yes, it is the Kindle generation, but this is the

:19:34.:19:37.

place where children learn how to read. They take out the extent they

:19:37.:19:41.

decide what they like and they do not like. They come here and they

:19:41.:19:52.

make friends. That was a sound bite. If we took his books and take them

:19:52.:19:59.

outside and trod on them, would he say the same? This place will evolve

:19:59.:20:06.

into something very special. Is Hull going to be City of Culture? We will

:20:07.:20:15.

be behind you. I am performing in Sheffield tonight and we have made

:20:15.:20:18.

the journey easier to stand up for this library. There are a lot of us

:20:18.:20:23.

about, it is not just me, but we need to get behind Hull, it is

:20:23.:20:28.

historic and it deserves a break. We salute you for that. We need you to

:20:28.:20:34.

come back and live here. Don't be ridiculous! Maureen Lipman talking

:20:34.:20:45.

to me this afternoon at the library. A real legend and of course Hull

:20:45.:20:52.

born and bred. A reality TV star from Hull says he'll stop being a

:20:52.:20:56.

bin—lorry mechanic to pursue his music career.

:20:56.:20:58.

Ryan Mathie has been busking in the city centre today, ahead of his next

:20:58.:21:05.

X Factor appearance. Now he claims, whatever happens, he wants to keep

:21:05.:21:12.

playing to the crowds. I have always been behind my city because this is

:21:12.:21:16.

where I am from. Every little bit helps and it just shows what an

:21:16.:21:23.

amazing city it is. People have got behind me and that is why am so

:21:23.:21:32.

proud of my city. 18 years of footballing history

:21:32.:21:35.

comes to an end tonight. Lincoln Ladies will play Arsenal in

:21:35.:21:38.

the Women's League Cup in their final game before they change their

:21:39.:21:42.

name and move to Nottingham. Sarah Walton was there as they set off for

:21:42.:21:47.

London this afternoon. It was all smiles as the team caught the bus

:21:47.:21:50.

earlier, but the emotion of the day was clear.

:21:50.:21:57.

Your mindset is to do well for the history of the club and 18 years

:21:57.:22:05.

that have been built up. From next season the team will be based in

:22:05.:22:08.

Nottingham and known as Notts County Ladies. Today, perhaps the closing

:22:08.:22:15.

of one chapter four Lincoln, but we will be developing and promoting the

:22:15.:22:23.

game on our move. This is the last time that the team will leave from

:22:23.:22:30.

this part of the world to compete. Earlier this week the trophy was in

:22:30.:22:33.

touching distance. But to get their hands on it, they need to get past

:22:33.:22:37.

Arsenal first. We are the only team that they have not beaten the

:22:38.:22:41.

season, so definitely there is a psychological thing for us to draw

:22:41.:22:46.

on when we go into the games. They have always been really close games.

:22:46.:22:50.

Last year we managed to beat them as well. But they finished third from

:22:50.:22:59.

the bottom in the women's super league. As we become not county we

:22:59.:23:07.

want to think about challenging a little more.

:23:07.:23:13.

But if comes as the Lincoln Ladies finish third from the bottom in the

:23:13.:23:17.

women's Super League. So while the team prepares for change, Lincoln

:23:17.:23:20.

Ladies, as they are now, have this one last chance to win big. And in

:23:20.:23:23.

men's football tomorrow there's commentary of Hull City at home to

:23:23.:23:27.

Aston Villa on BBC Radio Humberside's FM frequency at three

:23:27.:23:33.

o'clock. The sports team go on air at 1.30.

:23:33.:23:36.

Scunthorpe United versus Cheltenham Town is on 1485AM. And Aldershot

:23:36.:23:40.

Town versus Grimsby Town is on Digital and Web. BBC Radio

:23:40.:23:42.

Lincolnshire will have commentary on Lincoln's trip to Nuneaton.

:23:42.:23:57.

Lincolnshire will have commentary on Hull's Olympic gold medallist Luke

:23:58.:24:03.

Campbell is boxing tomorrow night. He will aim to move up the rankings.

:24:03.:24:08.

A policeman from Cleethorpes believes he has the world's largest

:24:08.:24:11.

collection of bagpipes, and he's hoping to prove it with an entry in

:24:11.:24:15.

the record books. Danny Fleming started collecting the instruments

:24:15.:24:18.

as a teenager and has spent £10,000 on one set alone. Sarah Corker has

:24:18.:24:31.
