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


Vulnerable children are having to travel 100 miles for mental health


care. The Government's asked to intervene.


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


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


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


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


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


estate. The Strictly Star who's come to see


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


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


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


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


mental health unit stopped taking overnight patients. The West End


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


meaning youngsters with severe problems have to be separated from


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


protect her identity. I was really homesick and I missed


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


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


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


Hessle will be raised in the House of Commons.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


recovering. Her daughter, meanwhile, dreads


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


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


Local health managers insist that young people with mental illness are


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


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


debate mean? Alan Johnson should be able to get


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


said since the health reforms were introduced, trying to get


information about how many children have been infected by the bed


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


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


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


In a moment: is a complicated picture.


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


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


ignoring local concerns over wind farm developments in Lincolnshire.


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


planning applications are being overturned by central government,


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


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


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


Lincolnshire's latest proposed wind farm development. The application


was originally rejected by East Lindsey district council, but was


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


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


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


privately. The government are talking about big society and


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


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


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


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


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


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


local communities do not light wind turbines. The communities secretary


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


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


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


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


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


appeals only applies to existing applications, not to decision that


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


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


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


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


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


when communities raise those concerned with is that we try and


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


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


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


targets the government placed nationally. I think there is an


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


consider those applications very carefully. We value our landscape in


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Sutton`on`Sea. More than 100 protesters gathered


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


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


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


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


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


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


presentation before the judging panel makes their decision. Hull is


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


am eating Kate Pickering, jewellery designer in this converted


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


internationally renowned artists. Millions has been spent refurbishing


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


status will raise it profile nationally and globally. There does


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


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


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


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


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


homecoming ` the British Superbike Champion returns to Lincolnshire. We


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


some stage. The Strictly Star who's come to


sample the delights of her dance partner's home town.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


received an unprecedented response as they tried to stop illegal


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


reports. Unwanted furniture, toys and dirty


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


its pick`ups due to the unprecedented amounts of rubbish


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


over? Extra crews have been brought in.


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


New line You might also have a view on this story ` were the council


right to run this free collection in the run up to Bonfire night? New


line The new British Superbike Champion has returned home to


Lincolnshire after clinching the title at the weekend. 23`year`old


Alex Lowes from Lincoln became the youngest ever champion at Brands


Hatch, just days after his twin brother Sam took the world title in


another motorcycle competition. Phillip Norton has been to meet him


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


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


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.


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


in the next few weeks. Alex's title clincher at Brands Hatch on Sunday


came as twin brother Sam also claimed the world Supersport


Championship in France earlier this month. This week, we can chill out


together and enjoy what we have both achieved. IOL to him. It's a dream


come true for the Lincoln twins ` without embarassing them, this is


when they first featured on BBC Look North in 2006. I want to be world


champion. That would be a dream come true for may. I want to be world


champion. I love racing and that is all I want to do in my life. It is


nice what he said, he wants to be champion and he has gone and do


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


clutch of trophys and between them, it's hoped there's plenty more to


come. New line Scunthorpe United have moved to within a point of the


play off zone in League Two following a win last night. Sam


Winnall scored the only goal in the second half of their game at


Fleetwood. Manager Brian Laws says the win, which leaves the Iron 12th


in the table, is their biggest victory of the season so far. New


line Grimsby dancer Kevin Clifton is putting his home town firmly on the


map after bringing his Strictly Come Dancing partner Susanna Reid to meet


his mum and dad. The pair took time out of rehearsing the American


Smooth and arrived at Grimsby Town station at lunchtime, Amanda White


was there to meet them. New line Let's


Sassy and rebellious in the tango, Susanna Reid only ever used to be a


straight news presenter. Today was another new experience ` her dance


partner Kevin Clifton brought her to Grimsby. I don't know if you know,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


biggest industrial site closes following a dispute over pay and


pensions. The Government is asked to intervene


to stop youngsters from Hull with mental health problems having to


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


nice evening. See you tomorrow.
