through the weekend. That is all from us.

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:14.

Struggling to read and write — why children in this area are bottom of

:00:14.:00:20.

the class. An strongest link is with your chances of going on to get your

:00:20.:00:26.

good exam results at the age of 16. Dog owners warned of a mystery

:00:26.:00:29.

illness killing pets. The Scunthorpe speedway star reveals

:00:29.:00:35.

how he became world champion. The bee lady of Hull on national

:00:36.:00:39.

television as years of fundraising is recognised. They are such nice

:00:39.:00:46.

people, I have got to say nice things. You get more money. A much

:00:46.:00:55.

colder feel to the weather from tomorrow onwards. Jamie later in the

:00:55.:01:06.

programme for the full forecast. Good evening.

:01:06.:01:08.

Young children in Yorkshire and the Humber have the worst reading record

:01:09.:01:12.

in England. It's claimed almost 40 per cent of those aged between five

:01:12.:01:15.

and seven don't reach the required standard. And it's storing up

:01:15.:01:20.

problems for the future, with poorer exam results and a cost to the UK

:01:21.:01:25.

economy running in to billions. Tonight, education experts in this

:01:25.:01:28.

area say parents need to make more time to help children improve their

:01:29.:01:33.

reading. Leanne Brown has this report. Who can tell me, what is the

:01:33.:01:42.

title of this book? Here at St Mary's there's a huge

:01:42.:01:45.

focus on getting children to enjoy reading at school and at home.

:01:45.:01:52.

Here, it is non—negotiable. They bring their book back every night,

:01:52.:01:57.

we sign it. They are rewarded. Essentially, we try and choose books

:01:57.:02:00.

that are fun for the children, that have nice stories Anne Williams, so

:02:00.:02:05.

they are engaged in what they are beating —— nice stories and themes.

:02:05.:02:17.

Save the Children say that 30% of children fall below the required

:02:17.:02:21.

standard in this area. In the East Midlands, it is 35%. And in all

:02:21.:02:27.

areas, where children are twice as likely not to meet these standards.

:02:27.:02:30.

The charities say it can affect them for the rest of their lives. Where

:02:30.:02:35.

you see the strongest link is with your chances of getting good exam

:02:35.:02:39.

results at 16 and then going to university and into the labour

:02:39.:02:42.

market and so on. But there are increased risks of things like

:02:42.:02:49.

dropping out of school. But also, in time, be doing quite going to

:02:49.:02:53.

prison. Those in charge of learning at Hull City Council say it's not

:02:53.:02:59.

just schools who are responsible. You need to get up in the morning,

:02:59.:03:02.

get your children some breakfast, get them to school on time. I doing

:03:02.:03:06.

things for providing school breakfast for free, the next age is

:03:06.:03:13.

saying, at home, how about reading with your kids. Read to them, ask

:03:13.:03:17.

them to be to you. Simple things. But parents we spoke to already

:03:17.:03:21.

allocate time to read with their kids. Every day they have a story

:03:21.:03:30.

before bedtime. We did the Creepy Has, where they had to read six

:03:30.:03:36.

books for the summer holidays and they went to the City Hall to

:03:36.:03:40.

collect their medals. For those who aren't as lucky a nationwide

:03:40.:03:42.

campaign has been launched, recruiting volunteers to help those

:03:42.:03:51.

who have fallen behind. Young children in the Yorkshire and

:03:51.:03:54.

Humber area have the worst reading record in the country.

:03:55.:03:57.

I spoke to the Yorkshire author Gervase Phinn — himself a former

:03:57.:04:00.

teacher — and asked if he agreed with the report that poor reading at

:04:00.:04:04.

seven can damage a child's future prospects. No, I would not go along

:04:04.:04:11.

with that. In my experience, I have taught children who are not

:04:11.:04:14.

particularly good at reading at six or seven or eight, but once you get

:04:14.:04:19.

them hooked on books, it can take. I think it is sweeping say that. But

:04:19.:04:26.

these figures are not good. Is this the fault of the schools or the

:04:26.:04:32.

parents? The combination is if you have dynamic teaching, book boxes

:04:32.:04:37.

and classrooms, great libraries, and if every parent read with a child,

:04:37.:04:42.

not at all to a child, but with a child every night, for just half an

:04:42.:04:46.

hour, it would be of the fruits of a lifetime. Parents are often too busy

:04:46.:04:50.

to know —— periods of them too busy now to just sit down. But they are

:04:51.:04:57.

out working all day to provide their children. They don't want to come

:04:57.:05:03.

home and do that at night. They think that is a teacher's job. It's

:05:03.:05:10.

not just about that. It's about enjoying books and finding it

:05:10.:05:13.

pleasurable. The new national curriculum actually mentions

:05:13.:05:18.

pleasure, enjoyment, a lot of reading, and that is the key. But

:05:18.:05:24.

these figures are the worst in the country. I think they are dreadful.

:05:24.:05:33.

I am appalled by it. And another report says that we are way down the

:05:33.:05:37.

European league tables in 16—25 —year—olds. Something clearly must

:05:37.:05:43.

be done. A final question, does it matter what the children are

:05:43.:05:53.

reading? I don't think so. A comic? A comic, maybe. When I was president

:05:53.:05:58.

of the School Library Association, there were certain books I would not

:05:58.:06:03.

let young people be because they were offensive or unpleasant. But

:06:03.:06:07.

generally, if a child is reading and enjoys reading, that is what we

:06:07.:06:12.

want. Very good to see you. We want to hear from you on this

:06:12.:06:17.

story. Should it be schools or parents that do more to help improve

:06:17.:06:24.

reading standards? Why are our 5—7 —year—old is the worst in the

:06:24.:06:26.

country? reading standards? Why are our 5—7

:06:26.:06:29.

:06:29.:06:41.

hearing from you, as always. In a moment: A historic horse fair

:06:41.:06:45.

is banned from Hull — organisers say they'll find a new location.

:06:45.:06:52.

A Lincolnshire vet is warning dog owners about a sudden increase in

:06:53.:06:58.

cases of a mystery illness. Seasonal Canine Illness can be fatal. Experts

:06:58.:07:01.

still don't know exactly what causes it — but in recent years a number of

:07:01.:07:04.

dogs, walked in woodlands, have suddenly become ill. Gemma Dawson

:07:04.:07:08.

reports. Enjoying a cuddle at home. But just

:07:08.:07:12.

two weeks ago Alfie was fighting for his life. He was diagnosed with

:07:12.:07:16.

Seasonal Canine Illness after being taken for a woodland walk. He was

:07:16.:07:26.

being sick, he had diarrhoea, and the poor little lad had collapsed by

:07:27.:07:32.

the morning. I had to lift and into the car. This vet in Gainsborough

:07:32.:07:35.

has seen a sudden increase in cases, treating 15 dogs in just one week.

:07:35.:07:42.

Another three have been admitted in the last 48 hours. If it is mild,

:07:42.:07:49.

they get better in a couple of days. Otherwise, it can take up to a

:07:49.:07:56.

week with drugs and fluids. Cases of Seasonal Canine Illness are usually

:07:56.:07:59.

seen between August and November. Experts still don't know what causes

:07:59.:08:02.

it. But attention has now focused on harvest mites. To try to eliminate

:08:02.:08:07.

these as a possible cause, pet owners are being advised to treat

:08:07.:08:10.

their dogs with a fipronil—based insecticidal spray before going on

:08:10.:08:17.

woodland walks. Here at the Owlet on the edge of Laughton Woods, warning

:08:18.:08:19.

signs have now been put up. couple of cases confirmed with the

:08:19.:08:33.

local vets, so that is why we want everybody to make sure they have all

:08:33.:08:36.

the information so they can make a choice when it comes to taking their

:08:36.:08:40.

dog out. The Animal Health Trust has spent the last three years

:08:40.:08:45.

investigating this illness. It has been looking at five sites,

:08:45.:08:50.

including the Sandringham estate in Norfolk and Sherwood Forest in

:08:50.:08:53.

Nottingham. But it says the number of fatal cases has reduced

:08:53.:08:57.

dramatically. In 2010 20% of cases of Seasonal Canine Illness proved to

:08:57.:09:01.

be fatal. Last year just 2% of cases reported to the Animal Health Trust

:09:01.:09:05.

resulted in death. But until experts find the cause, Alfie won't be going

:09:05.:09:13.

on any more woodland walks. It's been revealed that a man from

:09:13.:09:17.

Grimsby is suing Humberside Police in what is being described as a

:09:17.:09:23.

landmark legal case. At the High Court in London Christopher

:09:23.:09:25.

Sarjantson is claiming that the force breached his human rights by

:09:25.:09:29.

taking too long to respond to a 999 call as he was being attacked in the

:09:29.:09:35.

town by a gang of youths. Well, our Correspondent Paul Murphy has been

:09:35.:09:39.

following the case. Paul, what's the importance of this court action?

:09:39.:09:44.

Well, it's the first time anyone has tried to sue the UK police for being

:09:44.:09:49.

late to an emergency call. It dates back to 2006 when Christopher

:09:49.:09:51.

Sarjantson, an innocent bystander, was attacked by a gang of youths

:09:51.:09:55.

wielding baseball bats, and suffered serious head injuries. The court has

:09:55.:09:58.

been told that it took Humberside Police 26 minutes to arrive after

:09:58.:10:00.

the first 999 Sarjantson's argument that this

:10:00.:10:05.

delay is in breach of his human rights, because the force had a duty

:10:05.:10:09.

to protect someone who was in immediate and serious danger. The

:10:09.:10:13.

police said there was nothing they could reasonably do to get there in

:10:13.:10:17.

time. The Forces also warning that the judgement will affect not only

:10:17.:10:21.

them, but police forces all across the country. The more news now.

:10:21.:10:29.

Police are looking for a 15—year—old girl who may have gone to work with

:10:29.:10:37.

the 20 old man at Hull Fare. Detectives say that Judy Ellwood has

:10:37.:10:41.

been missing for a few days. They are asking for the public to help

:10:41.:10:44.

locate the two. The nationalised railway company,

:10:44.:10:47.

East Coast, has made a profit of more than £200 million. The route,

:10:47.:10:50.

which connects this area to London and Scotland, has been run by a

:10:50.:10:53.

government—owned company for the last four years. The line is due to

:10:53.:10:57.

return to a private operator by 2015.

:10:57.:10:59.

The former ice—house on Grimsby Docks has been added to the World

:10:59.:11:03.

Monument Fund's list of buildings that should be preserved. It was

:11:03.:11:06.

once the largest ice factory in the world producing thousands of tonnes

:11:06.:11:09.

a day for the town's fishing industry. We are just about to put

:11:09.:11:18.

in a heavy bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for money towards the

:11:18.:11:23.

project, which will cost more than £12 million. So too have our

:11:23.:11:28.

building highlighted and have the World Monuments Fund saying that it

:11:28.:11:36.

is urgent is fantastic. Thank you to everyone who got in

:11:36.:11:38.

touch with us about the six protesters convicted of criminal

:11:38.:11:40.

damage at an airbase in Lincolnshire. They cut through a

:11:40.:11:44.

fence at RAF Waddington during a demonstration against the use of

:11:44.:11:46.

unmanned drones over Afghanistan. They claim they're used to kill

:11:46.:11:49.

civilians, but the Ministry of Defence says they're vital for

:11:49.:11:55.

military operations. A big response. Just a few.

:11:55.:11:58.

Pat and Ian say, "We support the protesters 100%. The Drones are evil

:11:58.:12:04.

and we are ashamed that our Government promotes their use."

:12:04.:12:07.

But Dave in Lincoln says, "The protesters may believe they're doing

:12:07.:12:09.

good but they're actually endangering the lives of our young

:12:09.:12:13.

forces who are fighting to protect their right to protest."

:12:13.:12:17.

While Bill in Grimsby says, "I would sooner see an unmanned drone in the

:12:17.:12:24.

sky, than soldiers on the ground." Thank you for those.

:12:24.:12:27.

Scunthorpe's World Champion Speedway Rider has told Look North he thinks

:12:27.:12:31.

his hard work this season has paid off. Tai Woffenden, won the title on

:12:31.:12:35.

Saturday at the Speedway Grand Prix in Poland. He only arrived home at

:12:35.:12:42.

three o'clock this morning, but has been speaking to Jessica Lane.

:12:42.:12:48.

Back in Scunthorpe with his bikes. Tai Woffinden became Speedway's

:12:48.:12:51.

World Champion on Saturday but says he's glad to be home. This is where

:12:51.:13:01.

was born. I've got my friends here, a lot my family here as well. It

:13:01.:13:06.

will always have a place in my heart. I came over in 2006 from

:13:06.:13:12.

professional, and it has been pretty crazy. This is the gold medal that

:13:12.:13:18.

he won at the weekend. He will also get a trophy which she can put

:13:18.:13:22.

alongside his collection, including the one he got earlier this year as

:13:22.:13:27.

British champion. But it is this World Championship weekend that has

:13:27.:13:31.

made him the first British titleholder in 13 years. And with

:13:31.:13:36.

the training and travelling involved in his job, Tai Woffenden says he

:13:36.:13:38.

could not do it without his supporting. My mum helps me with the

:13:38.:13:44.

flight and paper works and stuff, and my girlfriend helps me with that

:13:44.:13:49.

as well. My mechanics in Europe, my manager, it's amazing. Getting paid

:13:49.:13:56.

to do something that you love is wonderful. Tai Woffenden is taking a

:13:56.:14:01.

few weeks to recover from a collarbone injury before he starts

:14:01.:14:04.

to plan on the next season. So, he has little time to reflect on his

:14:04.:14:10.

current victory. But in Scunthorpe on the map.

:14:10.:14:25.

Still ahead tonight: We are live for a very important game for Grimsby

:14:25.:14:29.

football club. Hull's bee lady mixes with the stars

:14:29.:14:36.

as she collects a national award. A fantastic story. Let's have a look

:14:36.:14:45.

at tonight's picture. This is the pond at Bishop Burton. The director

:14:45.:14:51.

was very excited by this one. Thank you very much indeed. Another

:14:51.:14:57.

picture tomorrow night. And time for the weather. Good

:14:57.:15:03.

evening. It was another lovely day, but I'm afraid that change is afoot.

:15:03.:15:08.

It is going to turn colder. We have held onto the mild air for quite

:15:08.:15:12.

some time, so I think it will be a bit of a shock to the system as this

:15:12.:15:16.

cold air comes down, bringing with it some showers and some

:15:16.:15:19.

strengthening northerly winds as well. It will feel quite cold. A

:15:19.:15:24.

fine into the night tonight, however, and overnight tonight it

:15:24.:15:28.

will stay dry, with perhaps one or two showers in the North.

:15:28.:15:34.

Temperatures overnight will drop down to 11 degrees, 52 in

:15:34.:15:37.

Fahrenheit, so perhaps a little bit colder than it has been of late.

:15:37.:15:41.

Tomorrow morning, the sun will rise at seven 17 a.m., and those are your

:15:41.:15:50.

high waters —— 7:17am. So, we will see that cold air coming down from

:15:50.:15:53.

the North as we go through tomorrow. I have added to the map some arrows

:15:53.:15:58.

to emphasise the strength of the wind. It will pick up and introduce

:15:58.:16:02.

the cold air and the scattering of showers coming through on the wind.

:16:02.:16:05.

They will go southwards fairly quickly, but the strength of the

:16:05.:16:10.

wind will really pick up, especially along the coast, where we are

:16:10.:16:14.

expecting some deals. Gusts will be up to and above 50 mph. Temperatures

:16:14.:16:20.

will be 13 or 14 degrees, 57 Fahrenheit, and it will

:16:20.:16:24.

feel quite cold, especially along the coast. There will be further

:16:24.:16:28.

showers overnight, Wednesday and it is thirsty, and again, we're looking

:16:28.:16:32.

at a cold night on the cards. Waking up on Thursday, a very cold night.

:16:32.:16:37.

There could even be some frost. Through the day, we're likely to

:16:37.:16:41.

hold onto that strong wind with some showers around, especially along the

:16:41.:16:45.

coast. By Friday, although it will be cold, it looks like we should see

:16:45.:16:46.

some nice dry and bright weather. some nice

:16:46.:16:50.

Thank you. Organisers of an historic horse fair

:16:50.:16:54.

in Hull say it will still go ahead despite an injunction preventing it

:16:54.:16:57.

from using roads in the city. Those behind the event were at county

:16:58.:17:01.

court this morning and they say they will work with the council to find a

:17:01.:17:10.

suitable location for their event. Tolu Adeoye has this report.

:17:10.:17:17.

They say Hull Horse Fair is one of the city's oldest traditions. Knocky

:17:17.:17:20.

Windas and David Norris have been going to since they were children.

:17:20.:17:25.

But today in court a judge upheld an injunction preventing it from taking

:17:25.:17:31.

place on the city's roads this year. I think it is terrible, love. I have

:17:31.:17:38.

gone there from being a lad. No one has ever been arrested on the day.

:17:38.:17:44.

They had nothing in black and white in the courts to say that anyone is

:17:44.:17:48.

causing trouble. The council and Humberside Police say they are keen

:17:48.:17:52.

to avoid scenes like this, with horses blocking

:17:52.:17:59.

raced, causing disruption to local people and businesses. The concerns

:17:59.:18:01.

are about public safety, when you've got horses racing up and down the

:18:01.:18:07.

flyover, but also businesses on Khartoum Street in particular that

:18:07.:18:11.

have been troubled by previous events. We do not want to risk any

:18:11.:18:20.

accidents or incidents. Those behind a fair deny that horses would be

:18:20.:18:24.

raised. But in court today, the judge said that the issue was not

:18:24.:18:27.

whether horses would be raised or not, it was that permission should

:18:27.:18:31.

have been sought to put on an event on public roads. It will still go

:18:31.:18:37.

ahead. They have said we cannot block any streets in whole or

:18:37.:18:40.

anything like that. We do not want to block any streets. We just want

:18:40.:18:44.

to have our worst fear. Shall our goods. We will find a field

:18:44.:18:50.

somewhere to have it on —— show our goods. The horse fair was due to

:18:50.:18:54.

take place on Monday — those involved with it say it will go

:18:54.:18:58.

ahead but time is running out to get something in place so that it can do

:18:58.:19:02.

so legally. Extra officers will be on patrol to police any attempt to

:19:02.:19:05.

breach the order. It may be early in the football

:19:05.:19:08.

season, but Grimsby Town fans are arriving for what promises to be a

:19:08.:19:11.

crucial promotion fixture tonight. The Mariners face Cambridge United

:19:11.:19:15.

at Blundell Park — but officials at the club have said money is urgently

:19:15.:19:18.

needed to prevent the team 'suffocating' at their current home.

:19:18.:19:22.

The comments were made in a live BBC Radio Humberside forum, as Phillip

:19:22.:19:25.

Norton reports. It's been Grimsby Town's home for a

:19:25.:19:29.

hundred and fifteen years — the issue of a new stadium has become

:19:29.:19:32.

something of a saga The laughter at this BBC Radio Humberside live

:19:32.:19:35.

debate is because fans are still waiting for their now non—league

:19:35.:19:38.

football club to compete financially with a new stadium still waiting on

:19:38.:19:41.

council clearance and some investment. Without, we will not

:19:41.:20:00.

relocate. We are gradually suffocating here. We don't have the

:20:00.:20:05.

income streams associated with modern —day football at this ground,

:20:05.:20:09.

and we never would, even if we redeveloped. When these plans were

:20:09.:20:13.

first put forward Grimsby Town were still in the league — and doing

:20:13.:20:16.

well. Right now though they sit second in the Conference, behind the

:20:16.:20:19.

team they take on tonight Cambridge, though ahead of fellow long term

:20:19.:20:23.

strugglers Lincoln. Last season saw the club reach the play—offs and the

:20:23.:20:27.

final of the FA Trophy at Wembley under managers Rob Scott and Paul

:20:27.:20:31.

Hurst. Last month, Rob Scott was suspended, leaving Hurst in charge.

:20:31.:20:35.

So are both Grimsby's fans and manager upbeat about what's going on

:20:35.:20:41.

— on and off the pitch? We assembled a good squad at the beginning of the

:20:41.:20:48.

season. The recent performances have started to show that. It does take

some confidence in the ground. objections having passed, perhaps

:20:59.:21:09.

that's no surprise. Supporters however, hope they won't have to

wait another five to see their team back in the league and at a new

raised away with it. They are seven points clear, and so Grimsby Can

:21:40.:21:44.

play them tonight with the hope that they will beat them and close that

:21:44.:21:50.

gap. A few weeks ago, Grimsby town lost four —nil to Halifax. They are

hoping that they will begin a momentum to get back into the

:21:54.:21:57.

football league and hopefully that dream of a new stadium will become a

Gainsborough Trinity will appeal against being kicked out of the FA

Cup. Loan signing Jordan Thomas played in the last round, but the FA

an email, but accept they should have checked his eligibility. I am a

bit disheartened for the supporters, but it was not something we did

deliberately. We didn't think we would fill anybody. It is just an

Rugby League have been thrown into disarray after the majority of Super

League clubs rejected the proposals. Wigan, the Super League Grand Final

clubs including Hull and Hull Kingston Rovers has now been delayed

until next month. A grandmother from Hull — who's

:23:10.:23:14.

raised nearly £100,000 for charity — will tonight be honoured on national

television. Ninety—one—year—old Jean Bishop, also known as the Bee Lady,

:23:18.:23:21.

started fundraising in her home city nearly thirty years ago. Fantastic

story. Now she's been given a Pride of Britain award. Simon Spark

reports. The Buzz is all about Jean Bishop on

:23:39.:23:43.

her way for a night with the stars, getting ready to receive a Pride of

:23:43.:23:47.

Britain award for fundraiser of the year. Well, I just did not believe

:23:47.:23:55.

it. I thought that everybody was pulling my leg. It had not sunk in

:23:55.:23:59.

yet. We, of course, know Jean better like this — dressed as a Bee,

:23:59.:24:03.

collecting money for Age UK — but tonight the nation will see her

:24:03.:24:06.

being honoured by top celebrities and collecting her very special

invitation from one of them. Hello, Jean. All! I was surprised to see

:24:12.:24:22.

him, never mind telling me I had one. I did not know what to take in

:24:22.:24:28.

first. I was really surprised. You have won an award for the Fundraiser

it! She was worried about what she should wear — but in the end it was

:24:40.:24:47.

the bee they wanted to see. I hide behind it, DC. I can say what I

:24:47.:24:53.

like. And then she when to work — with two buckets this time —

swapping kisses for quids from the likes of Ed Miliband. Please welcome

:24:56.:25:03.

fundraiser of the year, Jean Bishop! And today there was no rest

:25:03.:25:08.

after her late night — just straight onto the Alan Titchmarsh Show for a

:25:08.:25:12.

live chat. Before last night Jean had raised £92,000, and her goal was

:25:12.:25:18.

£100,000. So, how much is it now? Don't give the game away, Jean. I

:25:18.:25:27.

haven't said how much the end. We'll just have wait and see, while Jean

:25:27.:25:37.

gets used to her well—earned fame. That is fantastic, isn't it? Well

:25:37.:25:41.

done to Jean. She was out partying last night and I am told that she is

:25:41.:25:50.

still down in London, probably at another party. Her programme is on

:25:50.:25:54.

ITV tonight if you want to see it. Let's have every cap of the national

start will affect children's earning prospects.

And in the weather, wins strengthening tomorrow and it will

be much colder. Top temperature of around 14 Celsius.

reading comprehension. Sarah says, I am the way surprised. Gary says

:26:42.:26:47.

there should be fewer pupils per class. And someone else says, "yes,

:26:47.:26:55.

the parents should and do the mac could do more. " And from Bernard, "

:26:55.:27:04.

children need help from parents and teachers. If parents are too busy,

:27:04.:27:09.

then they should not have kids." Mark says, " how can anyone be too

:27:09.:27:16.

busy for half an hour of reading with their child?" Alex has tweeted,

:27:16.:27:19.

"parents should spend more of putting them in front of the

:27:19.:27:27.

television." And finally John in Lincoln says, "I am 72 and I can

:27:27.:27:33.

never remember my parents reading to me or encouraging me to read, but I

:27:33.:27:37.

gained good qualifications anyway." Thank you very much for all of

:27:37.:27:41.

those. Join me tomorrow on the radio at lunchtime if you can. Have a

:27:41.:27:44.

wonderful evening and see you tomorrow.
