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


The judge described the six defendants as delightful people and


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


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


say they'll consider appealing the verdict.


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


asked him if committing criminal damage was a responsible way to


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


advertised, but three applicants and only one


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


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


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


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


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


firms say they are having difficulty finding staff. In specific


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


recovery. Paul is here with me now. The


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


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


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


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


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


problems when the economy grows quickly and the actual employers are


struggling to find staff because the training providers can provide them


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


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


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


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


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


imports are one reason for leaving the city.


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


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


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


Hospital. Beverley Hospital could be allowed


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


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


Inspectors are now satisfied improvements have been made. We are


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


hopes to hold if fit when City of Culture.


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


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


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


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


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


associations with Philip Larkin, with Andrew Mardell, with David


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Orchestra and actors Maureen Lipman and Sir Tom Courtenay have already


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


reception went. Thank you. Fingers crossed. We will


know the result at the end of November.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


and overnight tonight, I think across Lincolnshire it will largely


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


visited schoolchildren as they prepared to climb a mountain in the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


climate. The new chairman of Scunthorpe


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


eighth, just above Manchester United.


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


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


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


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


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


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


here on BBC One in just over half an hour.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


an incredible season for the Scunthorpe rider, now celebrating


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


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


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


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


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


inspire the next generation of racers and fans here are already


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


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


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


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


competition. It recognises local sport volunteers. You can nominate


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


the 16th. Hull teenager Ryan Mathie is out of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


message from six anti—drug protesters convicted of criminal


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


peaceful evening.
