at Six. It's goodbye from me. On BBC One we now join the

:00:00.:00:05.

The judge described the six defendants as delightful people and

:00:05.:03:57.

said he sentenced them with a heavy heart. But he couldn't accept that

:03:57.:04:04.

they had a sufficient reason for damaging the fence. The protesters

:04:04.:04:07.

say they'll consider appealing the verdict.

:04:07.:04:10.

Earlier I spoke to one of the protestors, Reverend Keith Hebdon. I

:04:10.:04:13.

asked him if committing criminal damage was a responsible way to

:04:13.:04:22.

behave. Well, as far as I am concerned, we are not guilty and we

:04:22.:04:26.

stand by that. The judge got as close as he could to quitting is. He

:04:26.:04:31.

said that he gave the verdict with an "heavy heart" . The judge started

:04:31.:04:38.

by saying that common—sense was not able where he was able to make a

:04:38.:04:41.

decision, but only according to love. —— according to the law. I

:04:41.:04:52.

think it is clear that we have been vindicated. There are innocent

:04:52.:04:55.

people being killed. Cutting offence is nothing compared to that. The MOD

:04:55.:05:02.

says these aircraft are saving the lives of our forces and countless

:05:02.:05:05.

Afghan civilians. Aren't you putting lives at risk your self by trying to

:05:05.:05:09.

disrupt their work? If they really want to save the lives of soldiers,

:05:09.:05:13.

they can pull them out of Afghanistan. But in the meantime, we

:05:13.:05:17.

have good evidence on the ground in Afghanistan that the use of armed

:05:17.:05:22.

drones is creating new resentment against the UK and the US and

:05:22.:05:29.

creating a more unstable world. Are you not putting lives at risk by

:05:29.:05:35.

following your own agenda? All of our lives are being put at risk by

:05:35.:05:38.

the use of armed drones and we need to do something about that. But the

:05:38.:05:48.

MOD is not saying that. I be wrong? Absolutely, they are wrong. They

:05:48.:05:55.

need to face the consequences. But given that war will always happen at

:05:55.:05:59.

times, would you not rather those who are fighting for our country

:05:59.:06:05.

face less risk? I am sure they will have been told they are fighting for

:06:05.:06:09.

our country. There is absolutely no evidence from our Government or

:06:09.:06:12.

anyone that what they are fighting for is doing anything to benefit our

:06:12.:06:15.

country or make the world a safer place. We have got no reason to be

:06:16.:06:20.

there and what we are doing with armed drones is making the world

:06:20.:06:30.

less safe. Good to talk to you. Either protesters right to break the

:06:30.:06:34.

law to make their point, or do you think the Government are to use

:06:34.:06:40.

these unmanned aircraft? There is also the statement there from the

:06:40.:06:46.

MOD. We will have your thoughts before we finish at seven o'clock. I

:06:46.:07:03.

look forward to hearing from you. In a moment, In a moment:

:07:03.:07:09.

Schoolchildren are encouraged to aim higher as the legacy of a Red Arrows

:07:09.:07:13.

pilot hopes to shape their future. New figures show that Lincolnshire's

:07:13.:07:16.

economy is growing, but there aren't enough people to fill job vacancies.

:07:16.:07:19.

An increasing number of businesses say they're worried there's a

:07:19.:07:22.

shortage of relevant skills and they won't be able to make the most of

:07:22.:07:26.

growth. Last week, the Chancellor said the economy has "turned a

:07:26.:07:29.

corner" but in Lincolnshire there are fears some businesses are being

:07:29.:07:32.

held back. Here's our Business Correspondent Paul Murphy.

:07:32.:07:39.

At this butchers business is booming, and so the owner wants to

:07:39.:07:43.

take on extra staff. But after months of advertising a well—paid,

:07:43.:07:50.

Phil paid —— well—paid job, the poster means they can. We have

:07:50.:07:55.

advertised, but three applicants and only one

:07:55.:08:00.

qualified pitcher. We are finding that there are some young people,

:08:00.:08:08.

but we're busy and we need staff to carry on the work —— qualified

:08:08.:08:13.

butcher. The skills shortage is being seen as a consequence of

:08:13.:08:18.

economic recovery. 40% of businesses say beer sales have improved. 43%

:08:18.:08:22.

are confident that their profits will go up. And yet, just as many

:08:22.:08:26.

firms say they are having difficulty finding staff. In specific

:08:26.:08:32.

industries, there is a specific niche for skills that businesses are

:08:32.:08:36.

finding hard to fill. But in general, there are wider numbers,

:08:36.:08:40.

which just do not seem to be, according to our latest survey,

:08:40.:08:43.

there at the moment to fulfil the demand. So, has the recovery cot

:08:43.:08:50.

training providers on the hop? At Lincoln College, they say their

:08:50.:08:53.

biggest challenge is matching skills to jobs. We grow, we should, we put

:08:53.:09:01.

on new courses in new areas, higher—level courses, more

:09:01.:09:05.

technical, we add that wherever we can. It is forever changing. If we

:09:05.:09:11.

were to look at the curriculum plan of four years ago for the college,

:09:11.:09:14.

they would probably be a thousand changes between then and now. We

:09:14.:09:21.

have just taken on a baker, we struggled, we had to pinch him from

:09:21.:09:30.

somewhere else! It seems that the job shortage has now become a

:09:30.:09:34.

shortage. This will be seen by many as a reliable indicator of economic

:09:34.:09:35.

recovery. Paul is here with me now. The

:09:35.:09:39.

Chancellor says the economy has "turned a corner" and the Prime

:09:39.:09:42.

Minister says it's "on the right track." What's the evidence to show

:09:42.:09:47.

that's happening locally? If you speak to the Chambers of commerce on

:09:47.:09:50.

both sides of the river they will tell you that there are signs of

:09:50.:09:52.

growth, but more importantly competent is growing. We will have

:09:52.:09:57.

problems when the economy grows quickly and the actual employers are

:09:57.:10:01.

struggling to find staff because the training providers can provide them

:10:01.:10:05.

quickly enough, but that is being seen by the training providers as

:10:05.:10:08.

very much a short —term problem. They say they will catch up and get

:10:08.:10:12.

the right people into the right jobs eventually. Great news. Thank you.

:10:12.:10:18.

18 jobs will go with the closure of a chemical company east of Hull.

:10:18.:10:21.

Ineos, which is based within the Saltend Chemical Park, says low—cost

:10:21.:10:24.

imports are one reason for leaving the city.

:10:24.:10:27.

Lincolnshire Hospital Trust has been fined £30,000 after a radiologist

:10:27.:10:30.

was exposed to an illegally high level of radiation. The trust

:10:30.:10:35.

pleaded guilty in court to the health and safety breach at Boston

:10:35.:10:39.

Hospital. Beverley Hospital could be allowed

:10:39.:10:42.

to fully re—open by the end of this month. Eighteen of the thirty beds

:10:42.:10:46.

were closed in July because of concerns about the quality of care.

:10:46.:10:49.

Inspectors are now satisfied improvements have been made. We are

:10:49.:10:58.

going to the last phase of recruitment, and we will be

:10:58.:11:01.

increasing the bedside next month. The campaign to win City of Culture

:11:01.:11:11.

status for Hull has tonight moved to London as a team from the city tries

:11:11.:11:15.

to persuade key figures from the arts world to support the bid.

:11:15.:11:19.

Baroness Bottomley — who's the Chancellor of the University of Hull

:11:19.:11:22.

and the City's Sheriff — is hosting a special reception in the House of

:11:22.:11:27.

Lords. Our reporter Anne Marie Tasker is in the capital for us

:11:27.:11:30.

tonight. So, Anne—Marie, who's going to be there? Well, among the guests

:11:30.:11:39.

will be Sir Tom Cordray, Roland gift, and also Tracey Siewert, the

:11:39.:11:47.

producer of London's open ceremony. —— Olympic opening ceremony. It is

:11:47.:11:50.

hoped that they could bring a touch of class to the events that Hull

:11:50.:11:55.

hopes to hold if fit when City of Culture.

:11:55.:11:58.

When you think culture in the UK, this is what springs to mind. Some

:11:58.:12:01.

of the world's leading galleries, concert halls and theatres, and

:12:01.:12:04.

street culture too. But could Hull get a taste of this, if it becomes

:12:04.:12:08.

UK City of Culture? Steven O'Brien — editor of literary journal the

:12:08.:12:11.

London Magazine — says winning would certainly bring benefits. It has

:12:11.:12:19.

associations with Philip Larkin, with Andrew Mardell, with David

:12:19.:12:24.

Hockney. It has some good ranking museums. I think all it needs really

:12:24.:12:28.

is the spotlight to be put on it and then you could see that Hull could

:12:28.:12:34.

have some kind of sense bring science and renewal. Last Monday,

:12:34.:12:38.

Hull's bid was sent to Manchester. Inside the box, a document

:12:38.:12:42.

more events like The Freedom Festival. It would be just one of 25

:12:42.:12:44.

festivals and 1500 events held during the year. But tonight, the

:12:44.:12:49.

focus moves here to the Houses of Parliament. Hull's Sheriff, the

:12:49.:12:52.

former MP Virginia Bottomley, is hosting a reception here, where

:12:52.:12:55.

Hull's bid team can meet some of the key figures from London's Arts

:12:55.:13:03.

scene. And if Hull wins their favour — and the City of Culture title —

:13:03.:13:07.

that might just attract visitors to London's galleries to head north

:13:07.:13:14.

too. I don't think people necessarily associated with culture.

:13:14.:13:19.

I guess that is what the application and the award would be about,

:13:19.:13:24.

raising awareness. If it wins the title, I would definitely want to go

:13:24.:13:30.

there. I am really interested in arts and culture, so if there is

:13:30.:13:33.

something like that, I will obviously go. The Royal Philharmonic

:13:33.:13:37.

Orchestra and actors Maureen Lipman and Sir Tom Courtenay have already

:13:37.:13:40.

backed Hull's bid. It hopes tonight's event will convince even

:13:40.:13:42.

more people to join them. Anne Marie is live outside the

:13:42.:13:46.

Houses of Parliament — what is expected to happen over the next

:13:46.:13:49.

couple of hours there? Well, the event is due to begin in the next 15

:13:49.:13:53.

minutes or so, and one of the people attending is the leader of city ——

:13:53.:13:59.

Hull City Council. The bid is already in, councillor. What

:13:59.:14:03.

difference will tonight make? I think it is first of all saying

:14:03.:14:07.

thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters, and secondly, to allow

:14:07.:14:13.

supporters in London, there is national media here, and I think

:14:13.:14:19.

that they note that the bid is going to be successful. Hopefully, going

:14:19.:14:23.

to be six vessel. And they know that the bid is such an excellent bid

:14:23.:14:28.

that they are going to give is that —— going to be successful. But

:14:28.:14:34.

gathering them together tonight, will that make a difference? Every

:14:35.:14:41.

piece of the jigsaw needs to fall into place. And certainly tonight,

:14:41.:14:46.

which the Baroness is hosting, is a starting to make sure that Hull's

:14:46.:14:52.

voice is heard, and why it should it not be? Hull as the City of Culture

:14:52.:14:56.

is deserved and we changed the face of the city. Thank you for joining

:14:56.:15:02.

us. We will be live here at 10:25pm tonight to tell you how the

:15:03.:15:08.

reception went. Thank you. Fingers crossed. We will

:15:08.:15:11.

know the result at the end of November.

:15:11.:15:13.

Still ahead tonight: He's become the first British speedway world

:15:13.:15:16.

champion for thirteen years, we see how Tai Woffinden's home town are

:15:16.:15:28.

celebrating his victory. I will be live at the speedway track in

:15:28.:15:32.

Scunthorpe were Tai Woffinden began his career as a teenager. This

:15:32.:15:39.

picture is interesting. This was taken from a ship that came in last

:15:39.:15:42.

night. It was taken by Joanne Angus. Joanne, thank you very much for

:15:42.:15:55.

that. Kate is here. It has been fantastic year. I was outside in

:15:55.:16:00.

shirtsleeves every run. Did you have a few lady staring?

:16:00.:16:10.

Probably. But it's been gorgeous. Temperatures got to 21 degrees

:16:10.:16:18.

today, and tomorrow will be mild again. From Wednesday onwards, we're

:16:18.:16:21.

going to notice a difference in the field the weather you conceivably

:16:21.:16:26.

coming south, cold air coming the North, and it certainly will feel

:16:26.:16:31.

cold out and about. That is from Wednesday onwards. Back to the

:16:32.:16:37.

present, and a fine end to the day. Clothes and sunshine to end the day

:16:37.:16:41.

and overnight tonight, I think across Lincolnshire it will largely

:16:41.:16:44.

stayed right, but across northern part and Yorkshire that could be the

:16:44.:16:48.

odd shower. Temperatures down to 13 or 14 degrees. Tomorrow morning, the

:16:48.:16:55.

sun will rise at 7:30am, setting again at 6:24pm. These are your five

:16:55.:17:06.

quarters times. —— high water times. I think across Lincolnshire it will

:17:06.:17:10.

be largely dry, but there could be some showery outbreaks of rain. As

:17:10.:17:13.

we go to the day, generally it will be dry, with variable amounts of

:17:13.:17:17.

cloud. And again, feeling quite mild. Temperature —wise, as we head

:17:17.:17:25.

to the afternoon, we could get to around 18 or 90 degrees. 19 is 66 in

:17:25.:17:33.

Fahrenheit. —— 19 degrees. Wednesday is the changing day. Temperatures

:17:34.:17:38.

will drop to 40 degrees, dropping day on day, with allow on Thursday

:17:38.:17:44.

11 degrees. —— 14 degrees. Along the coast, I think we could have some

:17:44.:17:49.

heavy wind, feeling very wrong. But tomorrow will still feel mild.

:17:49.:17:59.

Thank you very much indeed. The widow of the red arrows pilot

:17:59.:18:02.

name—mac has been in London today helping teenagers to realise their

:18:02.:18:09.

potential. —— Jon Egging. He died last year. This morning, his widow

:18:10.:18:17.

visited schoolchildren as they prepared to climb a mountain in the

:18:17.:18:23.

Peak District. He was so talented as a pilot, as a teacher and an

:18:23.:18:27.

structure he was able to understand how to bring out the best in the

:18:27.:18:32.

people he worked with. When he died, I just did not want to lose that.

:18:32.:18:38.

Before I was not to be had. I think that is part of the reason I got put

:18:38.:18:41.

on this programme. It has really helped my behaviour. It has made me

:18:41.:18:48.

a lot more confident. I have met new people. I get on with everyone now

:18:48.:18:53.

and just go with it. We wish them very well with our claim. —— the

:18:53.:18:59.

climate. The new chairman of Scunthorpe

:18:59.:19:03.

United has told fans he hasn't ruled out moving the club away from

:19:03.:19:07.

Glanford Park. They only moved to the stadium 25 years ago but Peter

:19:07.:19:10.

Swann has admitted talks with the local authority about a move are at

:19:10.:19:14.

an early stage. With news of that, and Hull City's Premier League

:19:14.:19:17.

progress, here's our sports reporter Simon Clark. That is what I hope...

:19:17.:19:24.

Five years... Face—to—face. This is how Peter Swan likes to do business.

:19:24.:19:29.

There were lots of enquiries about the team and the manager, but also

:19:29.:19:33.

to the ongoing question of the ground, and whether or not to stay

:19:33.:19:38.

at Blackford Park. The most important thing is to find our

:19:38.:19:43.

identity. Our stadium just now is 25 years old and we're looking at other

:19:43.:19:47.

options. Once they start to come to fruition, we can hopefully involve

:19:47.:19:50.

the fans in a new stadium, that would be, fantastic. He's a really

:19:50.:19:57.

positive guy and he speaks well. I really liked the idea of moving. We

:19:57.:20:03.

were one of the first clubs to move to a new ground and again, this is

:20:03.:20:10.

now outdated. If it is more cost—effective to move, then why

:20:10.:20:15.

not? On the field, United continue to do the business. Goes to the

:20:15.:20:27.

end, Sam widow tapped into secured —— towards the end, the striker

:20:28.:20:38.

tapped into secured victory. We have managed to keep another clean sheet.

:20:39.:20:42.

I think that is the only positive we can take out of it. We must remember

:20:42.:20:48.

that we are newly — promoted team. Long may it continue. The team as

:20:48.:20:53.

eighth, just above Manchester United.

:20:53.:20:57.

Young Rugby League players with Hull FC are being given advice on dealing

:20:57.:21:02.

with depression. The club's Academy trainees are working with the "State

:21:02.:21:05.

of Mind" charity at their base at Bishop Burton College.

:21:05.:21:08.

And Inside Out will be looking at how the sport is addressing the

:21:08.:21:11.

problem of depression, including an interview with Hull FC's Shaun McRae

:21:11.:21:14.

who talks about his own battle with the illness. Don't miss that. That's

:21:15.:21:24.

here on BBC One in just over half an hour.

:21:24.:21:28.

It's the town that gave us one of the world's best cricketers, Ian

:21:28.:21:32.

Botham. And for a time Tony Jacklin was the best golfer on the planet.

:21:32.:21:36.

But now Scunthorpe has a new sporting hero. Tai Woofinden is

:21:36.:21:39.

celebrating becoming the World Speedway Champion at the age of 23.

:21:39.:21:44.

Sarah Corker is at Scunthorpe Speedway. Sarah, how are they

:21:44.:21:54.

celebrating having a world champion? Peter, there are plans to hold a

:21:54.:21:59.

special race meeting in his honour, and also talked of naming part of

:21:59.:22:04.

this stadium after Tai Woffinden. This is where he first began his

:22:04.:22:07.

career as a teenager. Those who knew him back then told me that he was a

:22:07.:22:13.

special talent. He went into these World Championships as a wild card,

:22:13.:22:17.

but soon became a firm favourite to take the title. My report contains

:22:17.:22:25.

flash photography. At 23, he is the youngest ever speedway world

:22:25.:22:30.

champion. But it has been a tough journey for Tai Woffinden, writing

:22:30.:22:33.

here in the black—and—white. He delayed surgery on a broken

:22:33.:22:37.

collarbone. Riding through the pain, he picked up the points needed to

:22:37.:22:41.

take the title in Poland. The light for his loyal fans, and for him, it

:22:41.:22:48.

is all still sinking in. Super pumped. Two broken collarbone is,

:22:48.:22:54.

but just kept tracking on, and now I am world champion. His mum has

:22:54.:23:00.

watched embrace all over the world. This is a proud moment. We always

:23:00.:23:07.

knew he had talent, but so soon and he is so young, it is hard to

:23:07.:23:10.

describe. I still have to pinch itself to believe it. He has

:23:10.:23:18.

dedicated his title to his late father, his mentor and a well—known

:23:19.:23:23.

writer. As the 50 New Rd, he began his career at the Scunthorpe

:23:23.:23:32.

Scorpions —— as a teenager. Scunthorpe isn't the place to say, I

:23:32.:23:38.

have to move up. He had big ambitions. Those at his old club

:23:38.:23:45.

today are celebrating his success. I cried my eyes out. I cried my eyes

:23:45.:23:48.

out for his family and everything he has gone through. So proud, not just

:23:48.:23:52.

a world champion, but a Scunthorpe world champion. This racetrack

:23:52.:23:57.

attracts riders from all over the world. There is still long way for

:23:57.:24:03.

me to go that far, so I'm just taking it you idea, and will fully

:24:03.:24:09.

one day I will be at that level. It just clicked for him. He just works

:24:09.:24:13.

so hard. That is what we need to do, just follow his steps. It has been

:24:13.:24:19.

an incredible season for the Scunthorpe rider, now celebrating

:24:19.:24:21.

becoming the first British champion in more than a decade. Tai Woffinden

:24:21.:24:28.

races all over the world, but some of his family do still live here in

:24:28.:24:33.

Scunthorpe. His grandmother, for example, makes the key here at the

:24:33.:24:37.

racetrack. He is flying back from Poland tonight and will be back in

:24:37.:24:41.

Scunthorpe tomorrow. It is hoped that his success could help to

:24:41.:24:44.

inspire the next generation of racers and fans here are already

:24:44.:24:47.

tipping him to go on to win many more titles in the future. Lovely,

:24:47.:24:55.

thank you very much. Well done to Tai Woffinden, and good evening to

:24:55.:24:58.

grandma if she is watching. I am sure that she is.

:24:58.:25:01.

BBC Sport's Unsung Hero award needs your nominations for this year's

:25:01.:25:04.

competition. It recognises local sport volunteers. You can nominate

:25:04.:25:09.

someone you know on the BBC Sport website. The closing date is October

the 16th. Hull teenager Ryan Mathie is out of

:25:14.:25:23.

this year's X—factor. The former mechanic failed to make it through

:25:23.:25:27.

to the live show. The judges said Ryan had a good voice but lacked

:25:27.:25:36.

star quality. Despite that, I think he has a glittering career in front

:25:36.:25:39.

of him, so good luck to him. He has done very well to get this far.

:25:39.:25:42.

Tony Jacklin has become the first contestant to be voted off Strictly

:25:42.:25:45.

Come Dancing. The former golfer from Scunthorpe failed to impress the

:25:45.:25:48.

judges during the 'danceoff'. But Grimsby's Kevin Clifton made it

:25:48.:25:51.

through to the next round with his partner, BBC newsreader Susannah

:25:51.:25:59.

Reid. So, shame for Tony, but well to Kevin. I think he and Susannah

:25:59.:26:05.

got a good stay on the programme. It is back again next Saturday night.

:26:06.:26:09.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:26:09.:26:15.

A leading charity calls 15 minute care visits to the elderly a

:26:15.:26:20.

disgrace. And "we will continue to fight", the

:26:20.:26:24.

message from six anti—drug protesters convicted of criminal

:26:24.:26:33.

damage at a RAF base —— anti—drone. And the weather, writing up later

:26:33.:26:37.

and few new and very warm. And temperatures 18 degrees tomorrow.

:26:37.:26:43.

There is a very big response on the subject of Reaper drones after a

:26:44.:26:46.

discussion with the protest in there. Mark says, "the protest

:26:46.:26:55.

more about our enemies than our own troops." Peter says, "thank goodness

:26:55.:27:02.

the protest is where convicted of a crime. No matter how delightful

:27:02.:27:05.

these people are, they cannot take it upon themselves to break the law.

:27:05.:27:09.

How would they feel if I decided to enter their homes because I thought

:27:09.:27:12.

I had the right to do so?" And someone else's, I don't usually sit

:27:12.:27:19.

on the fence, but this time I will. I see the point of the protesters.

:27:19.:27:24.

And this from Peter, " the Vicar spoke sense. The best way to protect

:27:24.:27:29.

our soldiers is to bring them home from places like Afghanistan. They

:27:29.:27:33.

are not fighting for our country. They are supporting a political

:27:33.:27:36.

agenda at tremendous expense." Thank you very much for those responses.

:27:36.:27:42.

Join me on the radio tomorrow from midday. If not, please have a very

:27:42.:27:44.

peaceful evening.
