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

:00:09.:00:12.

Vulnerable children are having to travel 100 miles for mental health

:00:13.:00:14.

care. The Government's asked to intervene.

:00:15.:00:24.

We have in patient care for adults. Children, were it is more important

:00:25.:00:27.

for them to be men are family, have no such service.

:00:28.:00:30.

Claims that local people are being ignored in the debate about wind

:00:31.:00:35.

farms. My message to Eric pickles is look at the information carefully.

:00:36.:00:39.

The sea of rubbish that's been left uncollected on a Hull housing

:00:40.:00:41.

estate. The Strictly Star who's come to see

:00:42.:00:45.

where her dance partner's career began. A cool Mike on the cards, but

:00:46.:00:57.

I can't day tomorrow. I will be back with a full forecast.

:00:58.:01:04.

Some of the most vulnerable young people in Hull and East Yorkshire

:01:05.:01:09.

are being forced to travel hundreds of miles for treatment after a

:01:10.:01:12.

mental health unit stopped taking overnight patients. The West End

:01:13.:01:17.

Centre in Hessle is now only open during the week and during the day,

:01:18.:01:20.

meaning youngsters with severe problems have to be separated from

:01:21.:01:23.

their homes and families. Tonight, the Hull MP Alan Johnson will hold a

:01:24.:01:27.

debate in the House of Commons calling for a better service. Vicky

:01:28.:01:35.

Johnson reports. This 13`year`old from Hull suffers

:01:36.:01:38.

from such serious mental health problems that she's had to be

:01:39.:01:41.

treated in special units on three separate occasions. After her local

:01:42.:01:49.

inpatient unit was closed earlier this year, doctors couldn't find her

:01:50.:01:52.

a bed on any of the psychiatric wards across Yorkshire, so she was

:01:53.:01:56.

sent more than 100 miles away to Cheadle. We've replaced her voice to

:01:57.:02:06.

protect her identity. I was really homesick and I missed

:02:07.:02:10.

my mum and that was half my problems. I would have been much

:02:11.:02:14.

better if I could have been closer to home where I could see Mum.

:02:15.:02:20.

Tonight. The issue of the bed closures at the West End unit in

:02:21.:02:24.

Hessle will be raised in the House of Commons.

:02:25.:02:27.

In this city we have inpatient care of adults. Children, where it is

:02:28.:02:30.

more important to see their families, have no such service at

:02:31.:02:33.

all. Everyone I talked to in the city agrees that is wrong.

:02:34.:02:47.

But NHS England has told us in a statement: The number of young

:02:48.:02:50.

people locally who need inpatient care is very small and not enough to

:02:51.:02:53.

support high`quality inpatient care 24 hours, seven days a week.

:02:54.:02:57.

But Sane, the mental health charity, has called these closures a scandal.

:02:58.:03:01.

They are shunted out miles away and can only be visited occasionally. It

:03:02.:03:04.

will have long`term damage on the children and their families.

:03:05.:03:08.

The teenager is now back home, and, according to local health officials,

:03:09.:03:11.

the family should have access to out of hours support. But her mum claims

:03:12.:03:20.

this just isn't the case. I just hope and pray on a Friday

:03:21.:03:24.

night that she can be happy and that nothing goes wrong because there is

:03:25.:03:27.

absolutely nothing. My worst nightmare is for us to have to go

:03:28.:03:36.

through it all again. She is still very fragile, she is still

:03:37.:03:40.

recovering. Her daughter, meanwhile, dreads

:03:41.:03:46.

having to return to Cheadle Royal. It was really distressing, there

:03:47.:03:49.

were alarms going off a lot and I am very sensitive to noise. ?? new line

:03:50.:03:52.

Local health managers insist that young people with mental illness are

:03:53.:03:55.

getting the support they need but that's not how this and other

:03:56.:03:58.

families see it. Vicky's here now. What will the

:03:59.:04:04.

debate mean? Alan Johnson should be able to get

:04:05.:04:08.

ministers to sit up and take notice of what is happening locally. He

:04:09.:04:14.

said since the health reforms were introduced, trying to get

:04:15.:04:19.

information about how many children have been infected by the bed

:04:20.:04:23.

closures at this facility has been nigh on impossible. He cannot find

:04:24.:04:29.

out how many children but there are across Yorkshire. Having been on the

:04:30.:04:36.

telephone myself to various authorities, I can vouch for it. It

:04:37.:04:41.

In a moment: is a complicated picture.

:04:42.:04:45.

Scotland's challenger to Hull in the race for City of Culture shows what

:04:46.:04:48.

it has to offer. The Government's being accused of

:04:49.:04:51.

ignoring local concerns over wind farm developments in Lincolnshire.

:04:52.:04:59.

East Lindsey district council says decisions it's made to refuse

:05:00.:05:01.

planning applications are being overturned by central government,

:05:02.:05:04.

with little regard for the local impact. Over the last three years

:05:05.:05:08.

the authority has spent almost half a million pounds fighting wind farm

:05:09.:05:17.

appeals. Here's Tim Iredale. This village is the location for

:05:18.:05:20.

Lincolnshire's latest proposed wind farm development. The application

:05:21.:05:26.

was originally rejected by East Lindsey district council, but was

:05:27.:05:31.

later approved on appeal. Much to the annoyance of some residents.

:05:32.:05:41.

They are 200 metres high. It is half the height of the Eiffel Tower. What

:05:42.:05:49.

do you say to people who say you are NIMBYs? I would say get stuck,

:05:50.:06:01.

privately. The government are talking about big society and

:06:02.:06:06.

localism. It is just not happening. When he was Energy Minister, the

:06:07.:06:11.

Lincolnshire MP said local residents should have much more power to say

:06:12.:06:16.

no to new wind farm developments. Councillors here say the government

:06:17.:06:22.

isn't living up to its pledge. We have to defend the countryside. We

:06:23.:06:25.

look to local communities to make their views known. They are keen

:06:26.:06:30.

that we protect things we value. There are a raft of reasons why

:06:31.:06:34.

local communities do not light wind turbines. The communities secretary

:06:35.:06:39.

will decide the outcome of two other wind farm applications. East Lindsey

:06:40.:06:47.

has spent almost half ?1 million fighting wind farm appeals. I think

:06:48.:06:52.

East Lindsey are highlighting the problem we have seen in other parts

:06:53.:06:56.

of the problem. I think central government are having a big think

:06:57.:07:08.

about it. The government says its decision to call in more wind farm

:07:09.:07:12.

appeals only applies to existing applications, not to decision that

:07:13.:07:15.

have already been made. Councillor Craig Leyland is the deputy leader

:07:16.:07:19.

of East Lindsey district council. He is in our Lincoln studio tonight.

:07:20.:07:22.

You've spent half a million pounds fighting wind farm appeals in the

:07:23.:07:32.

last three years. The East Lindsey refused to many applications? We

:07:33.:07:40.

look at each application. We do have a draft policy. We do have concerns

:07:41.:07:48.

when communities raise those concerned with is that we try and

:07:49.:07:55.

look act. Nearly half a million fighting appeals. It is wasted

:07:56.:08:00.

money. Is it not just time you accepted turbines are part of our

:08:01.:08:04.

countryside? I think we have to look at localism and the strategic

:08:05.:08:08.

targets the government placed nationally. I think there is an

:08:09.:08:21.

inherent conflict. July to decision that has been made by East Lindsey

:08:22.:08:27.

to stand ` ` would you like the decision that has been made to

:08:28.:08:34.

stand? When it goes through, I think the issue is that it is looked at

:08:35.:08:49.

Furley. ` ` it is looked at Furley. We hope that the Secretary of State

:08:50.:08:55.

will account these two applications and take into account the views of

:08:56.:09:01.

locals. Finally, if he was watching, what would you say to the secretary

:09:02.:09:08.

tonight? Oh, I do not think we have got long enough. I would ask him to

:09:09.:09:13.

consider those applications very carefully. We value our landscape in

:09:14.:09:19.

East Lindsey. We do not want to see an over industrialised landscape.

:09:20.:09:24.

Thank you very much. We want to hear your views on this

:09:25.:09:28.

story ` should central government over rule the council's decision on

:09:29.:09:29.

wind farms? A 30`year`old man from Lincolnshire

:09:30.:09:57.

has been jailed for at least 15 years for the murder of his

:09:58.:10:05.

partner's baby daughter. 14`month`old Amelia Bowmar died in

:10:06.:10:08.

hospital of brain injuries in July 2012. Nottingham Crown Court heard

:10:09.:10:16.

Darryl Elliot lost his temper and shook the girl at her home in

:10:17.:10:18.

Sutton`on`Sea. More than 100 protesters gathered

:10:19.:10:21.

outside Ferrybridge power station. They claim a new multi`fuel power

:10:22.:10:24.

project at the site will employ large numbers of foreign workers,

:10:25.:10:27.

rather than local people. The members of the GMB and Unison unions

:10:28.:10:30.

are calling on the contractors to support the local economy. New line

:10:31.:10:47.

Hull is just weeks away from finding out whether it will be named City of

:10:48.:10:51.

Culture for 2017. Months of hard work will culminate in one final

:10:52.:10:54.

presentation before the judging panel makes their decision. Hull is

:10:55.:11:10.

one of four cities short listed, but what do we know about the other

:11:11.:11:13.

three places? Dundee, Swansea Bay and Leicester are all bidding

:11:14.:11:16.

alongside Hull to secure the title. Over the next three days, Look North

:11:17.:11:20.

will be visiting our rival cities to find out more about the culture on

:11:21.:11:23.

offer and their bids. Tonight, Caroline Bilton reports from Dundee

:11:24.:11:33.

in Scotland. I will be going on a journey to see what the other cities

:11:34.:11:36.

have to offer. I will be starting here. At least it gives me time to

:11:37.:11:43.

read up what is on offer and take a look at what Dundee plans to do,

:11:44.:11:49.

should it win the City of Culture. This is where I am heading,

:11:50.:11:53.

Scotland's fourth largest city on the banks of the River Tay. Said to

:11:54.:12:01.

be built on it ` ` said to be built on jam and journalism. It was home

:12:02.:12:10.

to among others, the the Beano. We can now see what Hull is against. I

:12:11.:12:16.

am eating Kate Pickering, jewellery designer in this converted

:12:17.:12:20.

warehouse. This entire mill is home to artists and designers. What would

:12:21.:12:23.

winning the City of Culture mean for them, we create beautiful pieces of

:12:24.:12:31.

jewellery here. The community is so strong. We want to widen it and

:12:32.:12:39.

attract more attention. They may be miles apart but Dundee and Hull and

:12:40.:12:42.

not too dissimilar. Both have their areas of deprivation. Dundee also

:12:43.:12:52.

has its waterfront cut off from city centre by this main road. They are

:12:53.:12:57.

spending ?1 billion connecting the two, and in a couple of years time,

:12:58.:13:03.

the Victoria and Albert Museum will be opened here, which will be the

:13:04.:13:08.

centrepiece of Dundee's cultural Revolution. This is all coming here

:13:09.:13:11.

regardless of winning the bid, and it is not the only investment they

:13:12.:13:16.

have made in the arts. This contemporary gallery shows work from

:13:17.:13:20.

internationally renowned artists. Millions has been spent refurbishing

:13:21.:13:26.

this art gallery and museum, which is where I have come to meet the man

:13:27.:13:32.

behind them aid, Stuart Murdoch. We could've gone for City of Culture

:13:33.:13:38.

this year, and the decision in 2009 was to wait and try to do more. The

:13:39.:13:42.

waterfront will have been sorted by 2017. This place will bestow a

:13:43.:13:49.

phenomenal social history Museum. We think we will have lined up as many

:13:50.:13:53.

of the ducks as we can to be City of Culture. The question has to be

:13:54.:14:00.

asked, can Dundee be a UK City of Culture if Scotland was to vote yes

:14:01.:14:05.

in the referendum? It has no bearing on what we would do with this city.

:14:06.:14:14.

While there was a debate going on, I think politics have been taken out

:14:15.:14:17.

of this. Surprisingly, there is nothing here promoting the fact that

:14:18.:14:22.

they are bidding to be City of Culture, so are people behind it,

:14:23.:14:28.

like they are in Hull? I think it would be a recognition of the

:14:29.:14:30.

amazing stuff that is happening here. Not everybody knows about it.

:14:31.:14:38.

It would be amazing. It is a can of injection of enthusiasm, and the

:14:39.:14:42.

jobs it is going to create. I am getting the feeling you are thinking

:14:43.:14:48.

you have won a. I wouldn't go that far. We are all crossing our

:14:49.:14:52.

fingers. Where better to end my journey than here, the top of Dundee

:14:53.:14:56.

lock. Looking out over a city that is hoping that the City of Culture

:14:57.:15:01.

status will raise it profile nationally and globally. There does

:15:02.:15:06.

seem to be a well`established cultural scene already, but it is

:15:07.:15:09.

just that they want more people to know about it. If they are competing

:15:10.:15:15.

against Hull, they are going to have to shout louder.

:15:16.:15:20.

Tomorrow night, we will be looking at another of our competitors,

:15:21.:15:23.

Swansea. New line Still ahead tonight: new line A hero's

:15:24.:15:27.

homecoming ` the British Superbike Champion returns to Lincolnshire. We

:15:28.:15:39.

will see the sights. I expect some fish will be involved, and chips at

:15:40.:15:42.

some stage. The Strictly Star who's come to

Alan Ward sent this in. Autumn at Haverholme Bridge near Sleaford.

:15:52.:16:02.

Another photograph tomorrow. Keeley Donovan, good evening. Here is an

:16:03.:16:12.

extra picture. Martin took a photograph of his daughter, Florence

:16:13.:16:16.

Poppy Samuels. There she is enjoying last night's programme. As our

:16:17.:16:23.

producer said wittily, I am trying to find the remote.

:16:24.:16:29.

The washing machine sends me to sleep, but if that works!

:16:30.:16:42.

Tomorrow is set to be largely fine and dry. There have been a few

:16:43.:16:49.

showers today and it has been breezy. Tomorrow, ridge of high

:16:50.:16:56.

pressure will bring more settled weather. There will be rain on the

:16:57.:17:03.

cards on Friday. One or two showers creeping through, but a good deal of

:17:04.:17:09.

sunshine. It is set to stay settled. The breeze is starting to

:17:10.:17:14.

ease. With clear skies, it will allow a little mist and fog.

:17:15.:17:22.

Temperatures dropping back well into single figures. Tomorrow, there will

:17:23.:17:39.

be missed and fog in places, but that will readily left. There will

:17:40.:17:46.

be hardly any cloud for the book of the day. I think by this time

:17:47.:18:02.

tomorrow there will be more cloud around the breeze will start to pick

:18:03.:18:10.

up again late in the day. It will brighten up and it will be a breezy

:18:11.:18:16.

day on Friday. Saturday, rain spreading in from the west.

If anyone wants to read today's e`mail saying how wonderful you are,

:18:30.:18:34.

they are in the been under my desk. New line People living on the

:18:35.:18:38.

Bransholme estate in Hull say tonnes of rubbish which the council asked

:18:39.:18:41.

to be left out hasn't been collected. The council say they have

:18:42.:18:44.

received an unprecedented response as they tried to stop illegal

:18:45.:18:47.

bonfires being lit in the run up to November fifth. Sarah Corker

:18:48.:18:49.

reports. Unwanted furniture, toys and dirty

:18:50.:18:54.

mattresses. All piled high on the pavement of this estate in Hull. The

:18:55.:19:01.

council offered a collection service but they did not expect this much.

:19:02.:19:05.

Peter Coates says it is becoming a health risk. There is just rubbish

:19:06.:19:11.

everywhere. Kids get matches, there is that temptation to start a fire.

:19:12.:19:15.

What happens then? Especially if it is never shared. People living here

:19:16.:19:20.

receive a letter on Monday, informing them about a bring our job

:19:21.:19:26.

rubbish day. It is part of the campaign to stop illegal bonfires at

:19:27.:19:31.

this time of year. The council says it is a day behind a day behind on

:19:32.:19:34.

its pick`ups due to the unprecedented amounts of rubbish

:19:35.:19:37.

left on the streets. It has reassured the public collections are

:19:38.:19:42.

being made. The aim of this campaign is to avoid scenes like this from

:19:43.:19:47.

last year. Scorched land, the remains from illegal fires. In

:19:48.:19:52.

reducing the amount of waste available to be set on fire, we will

:19:53.:19:58.

be reducing the number and size of the fires. In 2012, we had far too

:19:59.:20:12.

many bonfires in Hull. The residents had welcomed the free collections,

:20:13.:20:15.

but says the council should have been better organised. They handed

:20:16.:20:21.

out leaflets but they had not played it on time. They could have put

:20:22.:20:26.

skips out. Most of this will be recycled instead of ending up on a

bonfire. New line Sarah is live in Bransholme tonight. Sarah, what

:20:30.:20:32.

assurances are the council giving people about the rubbish that's left

:20:33.:20:36.

over? Extra crews have been brought in.

:20:37.:20:46.

Very windy tonight. We are sorry about that. We have lost our link.

at his team base in Louth. A welcome home fit for a champion. Alex Lowes

:21:36.:21:38.

returns to his Samsung Honda team in Louth after being crowned with the

:21:39.:21:42.

British Superbike title. I feel fantastic. It is great to work so

hard for something and then to win. Everyone is happy with what we did.

:21:50.:21:52.

My family and friends have been great. They know what has gone into

it. It has been awesome. I am definitely going to enjoy this time

came as twin brother Sam also claimed the world Supersport

that. It is nice to look back and see where we have come from. With a

but Kevin is from Grimsby. In fact, he doesn't have a surname any more.

:24:13.:24:17.

He is just Kevin from Grimsby. He has very kindly invited me to his

hometown. We're going to do some filming and some dancing. For me, it

is well exciting. I am hoping to inspire Suzanna as much as Grimsby

:24:29.:24:35.

inspired me. Practice makes perfect. Does it? You are so right.

:24:36.:24:38.

This is where Kevin developed his passion for dance, under the

:24:39.:24:40.

guidance of his parents, themselves world Latin champions. It is

:24:41.:24:48.

terrific. Kevin started here, just the same as these kids. It just goes

:24:49.:24:52.

to show what can be achieved if you put your mind to it. We have enjoyed

:24:53.:24:59.

coming. I have loved it. It's lovely to meet them. We have just been

:25:00.:25:04.

asked to leave, but there is a very good reason. The children are

:25:05.:25:10.

getting a treat. They're getting a sneak preview of Saturday's dance. I

:25:11.:25:14.

can't quite resist having a look myself. But it was over all too

:25:15.:25:19.

quickly. It has been fantastic and really inspiring. Suzanna does

:25:20.:25:24.

really well every week. I am hoping it will be the same. Hopefully,

:25:25.:25:29.

Grimsby has inspired us. You can see the fruits of their labours on

:25:30.:25:40.

Saturday night. Kevin from Lusby. ` ` Kevin from Grimsby. I expect they

:25:41.:25:45.

might mention Grimsby again on Saturday night. Now the headlines.

:25:46.:25:49.

800 jobs are to go and more are under threat after Scotland's

:25:50.:25:51.

biggest industrial site closes following a dispute over pay and

:25:52.:25:56.

pensions. The Government is asked to intervene

:25:57.:25:59.

to stop youngsters from Hull with mental health problems having to

:26:00.:26:00.

travel 100 miles for care. Thank you for the e`mails and

:26:01.:26:29.

messages. We were talking about wind farm applications. A big response on

:26:30.:26:35.

this. Simon in Grimsby said, what is the point of having local planning

:26:36.:26:38.

applications if every time the company is turned down, they just

:26:39.:26:45.

appeal to the government to when? What a waste of time. We were

:26:46.:26:50.

talking about how nearly half ?1 million has been spent fighting.

:26:51.:26:56.

Somebody else says, it is the most inefficient form of generating

:26:57.:27:06.

electricity. Trevor says, if we all protest, no more will be built.

:27:07.:27:10.

Another person says, wind farms are graceful and essential. When will

:27:11.:27:17.

the NIMBYs shut up? Dave said, when other government going to accept

:27:18.:27:21.

that the majority of sensible people do not want any of these silly

:27:22.:27:28.

costly and inefficient eyesores? A very big response on this subject.

:27:29.:27:34.

By the way, we will be discussing nuclear power versus wind power and

:27:35.:27:39.

renewable power tomorrow on the radio. Join me if you can. Have a

:27:40.:27:43.

nice evening. See you tomorrow.
