power cuts to thousands of homes. Now we can join the news teams where

:00:00.:00:00.

you are. Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:10.

North. The headlines tonight. Passengers are stranded as rail

:00:11.:00:13.

services are disrupted by the storm that's surged across Britain. They

:00:14.:00:22.

have set that buses will be laid on but I will believe that when I see

:00:23.:00:27.

it. Hopefully we will get to King's Cross. There's revolt against

:00:28.:00:30.

cameras as motorists say new speed restrictions make this road more

:00:31.:00:38.

dangerous. It was billed as a through road to keep the traffic

:00:39.:00:41.

flowing. Fans from halfway across the world come to Hull for the Rugby

:00:42.:00:45.

League World Cup. Is the Strictly bug doing strange things to people

:00:46.:00:55.

in Grimsby? I will be back later in the programme with your full

:00:56.:00:57.

forecast for the week ahead. Rail services to and from London

:00:58.:01:08.

cancelled. Surface water on the roads made driving hazardous and

:01:09.:01:11.

heavy rain brought the threat of flooding to homes. The storm

:01:12.:01:15.

disruption wasn't as severe as further South but it was certainly

:01:16.:01:19.

one Monday morning that many will want to forget. Tonight there's

:01:20.:01:23.

still no indication of when train services on the East Coast mainline

:01:24.:01:27.

will be back to normal. But East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire DID

:01:28.:01:30.

escape the worst of the damage as Simon Spark reports. The storm

:01:31.:01:39.

battered the South has predicted that the most significant disruption

:01:40.:01:44.

from the storm here was the knock`on effects to travel. Commuters from

:01:45.:01:51.

Grantham saw cancellation after cancellation for anyone trying to

:01:52.:01:56.

head south. Might train has been cancelled. I will be late for work.

:01:57.:02:01.

I have been told it would be hours before trains get down to London. My

:02:02.:02:10.

husband is going to give me a lift. In whole, there was expected delay.

:02:11.:02:23.

They have half said that there will be buses laid on but I will believe

:02:24.:02:31.

it when I see it. It affected mainline stations including Hull,

:02:32.:02:41.

Grantham and Peterborough. We have had trains that have failed as they

:02:42.:02:55.

have travelled down. Many coming from London were stranded. A limited

:02:56.:02:59.

service did begin again late in the afternoon. In Skegness, those came

:03:00.:03:03.

as close as it gets to being flooded. It was raining hard and I

:03:04.:03:10.

kept watching and looking. Then it was coming over there and it was

:03:11.:03:14.

coming out here and flooding all of this up. I started panicking because

:03:15.:03:23.

it has been in before. For emergency services staff in Lincoln were they

:03:24.:03:28.

had a relatively quiet night. We have been prepared for anything.

:03:29.:03:33.

Fortunately the storm has tracked elsewhere. We may have got off

:03:34.:03:38.

lightly but it has little been a day of delay and disruption for many

:03:39.:03:45.

rail travellers. What is the latest picture on the trains? Well Peter we

:03:46.:03:48.

mentioned there that a limited service has resumed between

:03:49.:03:51.

Peterborough and Kings Cross but the advise remains not to travel by

:03:52.:03:56.

train tonight if you can. Long delays are still expected throughout

:03:57.:04:01.

the evening. They've obviously had a huge amount of work to do to clear

:04:02.:04:05.

the tracks and repair power lines and while that work was ongoing

:04:06.:04:08.

scenes like this at York Station, where no trains were arriving or

:04:09.:04:11.

departing, were typical across the country today The advise again is to

:04:12.:04:14.

travel tomorrow where tickets from today will still be valid.

:04:15.:04:22.

The start of a new direct air link to Denmark from Humberside Airport

:04:23.:04:28.

has tonight become another victim of the storm. The first flight has been

:04:29.:04:32.

cancelled due to bad weather in Copenhagen. The flights operated by

:04:33.:04:37.

SAS airlines are being seen as another sign of the growing business

:04:38.:04:40.

links between Scandinavia and the Humber. Anne Marie Tasker is at the

:04:41.:04:45.

airport for us tonight, so Anne Marie how significant is this new

:04:46.:04:53.

service? You can tell from the volume of people here tonight, there

:04:54.:04:57.

is 100 people on here for the launch. The guest of honour hasn't

:04:58.:05:06.

arrived. The first plane from Scandinavia, the bad weather has

:05:07.:05:13.

moved across to Denmark. There are hundreds of flights in the coming

:05:14.:05:16.

months and the businesses here hope it will build strong links between

:05:17.:05:21.

the two regions. Danbrit have been operating out of Goole for almost 30

:05:22.:05:24.

years transporting cargo across the UK and Europe. They know plenty

:05:25.:05:27.

about Denmark. It's where the company's founder Peter Aarosin is

:05:28.:05:31.

from. He says these new flights will make it easier to get customers

:05:32.:05:38.

there. That is where the real difference will be made. We can talk

:05:39.:05:43.

to our Scandinavian customers and bring them across to the area, we

:05:44.:05:46.

can show them exactly what we have to offer, with them able to get the

:05:47.:05:53.

`` get here very easily. And it's hoped it could encourage future

:05:54.:05:56.

business too. Denmark is a hub for green energy. It's the home of Dong

:05:57.:06:00.

Energy who are building a huge wind farm off the East Yorkshire coast.

:06:01.:06:03.

And it's where Siemens build turbines. It's hoped these new

:06:04.:06:06.

flights will allow stronger links with that industry. It shows that

:06:07.:06:16.

other organisations are recognising the activity that is going off in

:06:17.:06:20.

this area for the renewables sector. The Scandinavians are taking us

:06:21.:06:27.

seriously and what a direct link. SAS will fly in and out of

:06:28.:06:31.

Humberside Airport five times a week. It gives us great job security

:06:32.:06:43.

and provides a lot of service industries within the area, another

:06:44.:06:47.

reason to do business with us and it will drive extra traffic through the

:06:48.:06:52.

airport and they will look to spend money in the local area. SAS fly

:06:53.:06:55.

into just six UK airports. Humberside will be the seventh. The

:06:56.:06:58.

airport hopes it will help business with Scandinavia take off.

:06:59.:07:07.

It looks like that may be the case. Earlier I spoke to a representative

:07:08.:07:11.

from Scandinavia Airways and he said they had spent a year researching

:07:12.:07:15.

this route because companies in Denmark were asking to come to this

:07:16.:07:20.

region. The people in this room here tonight are certainly hoping they

:07:21.:07:22.

will come. Hundreds of motorists in Grimsby

:07:23.:07:25.

have signed a petition calling for average speed cameras only switched

:07:26.:07:29.

on this month to be scrapped. North East Lincolnshire Council says the

:07:30.:07:32.

cameras, on the 30 miles per hour Peaks Parkway, increase safety. But

:07:33.:07:36.

some drivers claim they've made surrounding roads more dangerous,

:07:37.:07:40.

and say the speed limit should be higher.

:07:41.:07:46.

Average speed cameras work using automatic number plate recognition.

:07:47.:08:03.

Some drivers have been inundated with tickets. Jason Davis got three

:08:04.:08:11.

in as many days and said the road was designed for faster travel. It

:08:12.:08:17.

is not a high risk road. There is not pedestrians and kids running

:08:18.:08:20.

around, balls flying across the road. It was built as a through road

:08:21.:08:26.

to keep the traffic flowing. I don't think that happens now. They work

:08:27.:08:38.

using recognition. A computer works out if the cars that passed between

:08:39.:08:44.

`` if the cars passed between the two cameras too quickly. It is a

:08:45.:08:49.

direct route in and out of Grimsby. There are no footpaths and there are

:08:50.:08:54.

crash barriers behind the wall. These cameras and force a 30 mile an

:08:55.:09:01.

hour speed limit. In contrast, this is a residential street. There are

:09:02.:09:04.

houses, driveways and footpaths. There's even a school in the, the ``

:09:05.:09:26.

yet this is a 40 mile an hour road. Hundreds of names have now been

:09:27.:09:29.

added to a petition calling for the cameras to be scrapped and the speed

:09:30.:09:33.

limit increased as was proposed by North East Lincolnshire Council in a

:09:34.:09:36.

2009 study. A local Councillor agrees. Today the council says the

:09:37.:09:39.

cameras have been installed in partnership with Safer Roads Humber

:09:40.:09:46.

after a number of casualties. If there is an accident and somebody

:09:47.:09:49.

gets killed, it will be their responsibility. Why because there is

:09:50.:09:57.

cameras there, is it an issue? It has always been 30 mph. The cameras

:09:58.:10:03.

are there for a reason to make sure people stick to the speed limits and

:10:04.:10:08.

to make Peaks Parkway a safe stretch of road. They hope to present the

:10:09.:10:16.

councillors with their petition by the end of the year.

:10:17.:10:26.

First, Sean Corker from the Association of British Drivers and

:10:27.:10:29.

asked him if the drivers in Grimsby had a point? They have a very good

:10:30.:10:38.

point. It is not right that the everyday actions of people should be

:10:39.:10:44.

criminalised. Clearly the road limit has been set at an inappropriate

:10:45.:10:47.

level and now the council are intent in enforcing that. You say you don't

:10:48.:10:54.

have a problem with enforcement of the speed limit and this is all it

:10:55.:10:59.

is. I have a problem with the enforcement of the wrong speed limit

:11:00.:11:01.

which clearly drivers have been saying that this is. It is a main

:11:02.:11:08.

thoroughfare into Grimsby with very little chance of coming into contact

:11:09.:11:13.

with other types of road users. A 40 mile an hour limit is probably more

:11:14.:11:19.

appropriate. The council says they are needed because of a high number

:11:20.:11:23.

of accidents. This will stop when people can't speed. The council

:11:24.:11:28.

hasn't said what has caused this will stop when people can't speed.

:11:29.:11:30.

The council hasn't said what has caused these accidents. This will

:11:31.:11:33.

stop when people can't speed. The council hasn't said what has caused

:11:34.:11:35.

this accident is. Normally we find less than 7% of accidents are caused

:11:36.:11:43.

by exceeding the speed limit. These are exasperated by artificially low

:11:44.:11:46.

speed limits. So you think this big emitters wrong and should be

:11:47.:11:51.

higher? If people are breaking this speed limit, the chances are that

:11:52.:11:58.

the speed limit is wrong. Labelling them as speeders is inappropriate.

:11:59.:12:04.

They are ordinary people wanting to get to work. They are not `` they

:12:05.:12:12.

are ordinary people. There are accidents and people are getting

:12:13.:12:17.

injured. It depends on what is causing those accidents. A lot of

:12:18.:12:21.

the time, it is not speed that is causing accidents. It has to be

:12:22.:12:26.

analysed and it is something the council have not been forthcoming

:12:27.:12:36.

with. His argument is radical. Do you welcome the introduction of the

:12:37.:12:39.

average speed cameras to keep the roads safe? Do you think they are

:12:40.:12:48.

right. Should they be increased from 30 to 40. Do you use the Peaks

:12:49.:12:51.

Parkway? More than ?1 million will be spent

:12:52.:13:16.

on new street lighting in Hull City Centre to cut council energy costs.

:13:17.:13:21.

The move from sodium to cheaper, longer`lasting, white LEDs like

:13:22.:13:24.

these is against a national trend for turning street lights off. The

:13:25.:13:30.

council says adopting the new technology will also help guard

:13:31.:13:40.

against crime. Saving money by reducing the electricity by having

:13:41.:13:44.

more efficient lamps is a more efficient way forward. There is the

:13:45.:13:48.

added benefit that the lights will produce much better lighting for

:13:49.:13:53.

CCTV images and the like. The quality of light will be better and

:13:54.:13:57.

there will be a cheaper cost. Money from the government will be

:13:58.:14:01.

used to expand a Lincolnshire power station. The company Siemens has won

:14:02.:14:04.

the contract to extend the site at West Marsh Road in Spalding. It's

:14:05.:14:08.

hoped it will be up and running by 2018.

:14:09.:14:11.

A silent movie is to be projected onto the side of the Deep in Hull

:14:12.:14:15.

this week telling the story of a sculpture made in the city that is

:14:16.:14:18.

to greet passengers at Heathrow's new terminal. Slipstream will be the

:14:19.:14:21.

longest permanent structure in Europe when it takes up residence at

:14:22.:14:29.

the airport. It's been created using precision engineering by a Hull

:14:30.:14:32.

company. The film telling the story of how it was made will be projected

:14:33.:14:36.

onto the Deep from Thursday evening for three nights. It's part of

:14:37.:14:40.

Hull's bid to become a city of culture.

:14:41.:14:43.

Still ahead tonight: Hull plays host to a bruising Rugby League World Cup

:14:44.:14:52.

encounter. How the Strictly Bug is doing

:14:53.:14:55.

strange things to the people of Grimsby.

:14:56.:15:06.

Keep your photos coming in. This is a photo of Bridlington beach. His

:15:07.:15:24.

Lordship is on holiday. Every night last week, I heard from the Keeley

:15:25.:15:31.

Donovan fan club. Every night, you always looked radiant. What are you

:15:32.:15:38.

after? Look at this. How did you get that?

:15:39.:15:45.

A journalist doesn't ruin `` reveal his sources.

:15:46.:15:50.

I will be finding a better picture of you, Peter. We have a mixed bag

:15:51.:15:58.

of sunny spells and there will be a few blustery showers being blown

:15:59.:16:04.

through. Many places will avoid them and stay dry. It is Wednesday that

:16:05.:16:08.

we will see the next area of low pressure sweeping in from the

:16:09.:16:12.

Atlantique bringing a spell of wet and windy weather. You can see that

:16:13.:16:17.

storm that tracked across as during the day bringing disruption to parts

:16:18.:16:20.

of the south`east. We now have winds of up to 80 miles an hour over parts

:16:21.:16:32.

of Denmark. It will be dry with clear spells tonight and

:16:33.:16:34.

temperatures will drop back to single fingers `` single figures.

:16:35.:16:39.

The sun will rise in the morning. Tomorrow morning, we start the day

:16:40.:16:53.

with one or two showers. As we go through the course of the day, there

:16:54.:16:58.

will be the risk of showers. It is very hit and miss and many places

:16:59.:17:01.

will stay dry. There will be some decent spells of sunshine. Tomorrow,

:17:02.:17:10.

it will be cooler than today. They will be around 10 Celsius. Looking

:17:11.:17:21.

further ahead, a frosty start of the day on Wednesday and fine for a good

:17:22.:17:26.

deal of the day. It will cloud over from the West with outbreaks of rain

:17:27.:17:30.

spreading eastwards. We have wet and windy weather into Thursday. There

:17:31.:17:32.

could be more cloud around. There was no make`up up a

:17:33.:17:51.

photograph. That was worrying me. I will be watching my back.

:17:52.:17:56.

We have seen today how the weather has been making the headlines. Well

:17:57.:17:59.

although Paul is off this week, he's been investigating how the weather

:18:00.:18:02.

in the future could really change. On tonight's Inside Out Paul speaks

:18:03.:18:05.

to scientists about recent research which shows that North Western

:18:06.:18:08.

Europe, including the UK, could be heading towards a mini Ice Age. I

:18:09.:18:18.

asked him about the research. What have you found in this

:18:19.:18:22.

investigation? Solar activity is increasing. The sun is in its

:18:23.:18:30.

weakest state for over 100 years. It is thought that in the past, during

:18:31.:18:37.

a period through the 1600s, in the early 1800s, very low solar activity

:18:38.:18:42.

went hand`in`hand with harsh winters and poor summers. Professor Lockwood

:18:43.:18:49.

actually told me that the decline in solar activity, the activity on the

:18:50.:18:53.

sun that is so crucial is falling at a rate not seen in 10,000 years of

:18:54.:18:58.

records. What would that mean to our winters? It doesn't mean every

:18:59.:19:03.

winter will be harsh and every summer will be poor, in general,

:19:04.:19:07.

harsh winters will become more frequent. We will see pictures of

:19:08.:19:12.

the wind of 62. It was the coldest winter of the last century and it

:19:13.:19:19.

went on for three months. The implications are quite profound. Are

:19:20.:19:23.

we talking about soon or is it a long way off? The last seven years,

:19:24.:19:32.

winters have been getting colder and he thinks we are on a slippery slope

:19:33.:19:38.

that over the coming decades, we are reverting back to a climate we saw

:19:39.:19:44.

in the 1600s. Wind turbines are built based on milder and wetter

:19:45.:19:51.

winters, winters will be lest `` less windy and the transport

:19:52.:19:55.

infrastructure would become under enormous strain.

:19:56.:20:01.

And you can read more about Paul's findings in his blog which you can

:20:02.:20:04.

find at bbc.co.uk/blogs/paulhudson and Paul's full report will be on

:20:05.:20:08.

Inside Out on BBC One at 7.30 this evening. 7,500 rugby league fans

:20:09.:20:16.

from Hull and beyond descended on Craven Park for the city's debut as

:20:17.:20:20.

a host city for the Rugby League World Cup. They were entertained by

:20:21.:20:25.

a close fought match between Papua New Guinea and France. Our sports

:20:26.:20:28.

reporter Simon Clark was there. They like their rugby in these parts

:20:29.:20:40.

and they showed up in great numbers. Some from near and far. We

:20:41.:20:45.

really excited. That is why we have the trip from London. We are

:20:46.:20:53.

supporting the team. Great to see a decent sports match bonus time. They

:20:54.:21:01.

were treated by the French. Later on, by the team most in the ground

:21:02.:21:08.

were back. Papua New Guinea. Two dynamic tries put them ahead. This

:21:09.:21:15.

outstanding cake from the French put them back in front. Papua New Guinea

:21:16.:21:23.

dreams were blown away by this missed penalty. We knew it was going

:21:24.:21:29.

to be a tough game but that will make us even hungrier for next week.

:21:30.:21:38.

It is like playing against trees. You get one and then another one

:21:39.:21:45.

comes at you. I think we deserved the game. It is a great opportunity

:21:46.:21:54.

to see a World Cup match here. It is a good facility and very well

:21:55.:21:58.

organised. It is a pity they missed that last one. It was really good

:21:59.:22:07.

and I am coming to the other game as well. Officials from Rugby league

:22:08.:22:13.

World Cup 2013 should be delighted with the crowd of 17000 and will be

:22:14.:22:18.

hoping from similar numbers when Papa New Guinea back to play Samoa.

:22:19.:22:24.

It will be well worth watching. Fans groups from Hull City will meet

:22:25.:22:28.

owner Assem Allam on Friday to express their dissatisfaction with a

:22:29.:22:30.

potential name change to Hull Tigers. On the pitch the side went

:22:31.:22:37.

down to a disputed penalty in the Premier League against Tottenham

:22:38.:22:41.

Hotspur. Roberto Solado scored it and game finished 1`0. A second half

:22:42.:22:47.

goal from Sam Winnall against Hartlepool United kept up Scunthorpe

:22:48.:22:50.

United's chances of fighting for promotion this season. Tomorrow the

:22:51.:22:54.

Iron face the short trip to York City.

:22:55.:22:58.

Football fans in Lincolnshire have got a dream tie in the first round

:22:59.:23:03.

of the FA Cup. Non`league Grimsby Town have a chance to be giant

:23:04.:23:06.

killers against their League Two neighbours Scunthorpe United. And

:23:07.:23:11.

Lincoln City will play Plymouth Argyle if they can beat Worcester in

:23:12.:23:21.

a replay tomorrow at Sincil Bank. Every Saturday night on BBC One,

:23:22.:23:26.

Grimsby has been on the Mac national spotlight on strictly come dancing.

:23:27.:23:29.

9 million viewers have been following the progress of Kevin

:23:30.:23:35.

Clifton and his celebrity partner, Susannah Reid. Has Grimsby caught

:23:36.:23:48.

the Strictly Come Dancing bug? Now for our next couple. Susannah Reid

:23:49.:23:59.

and Kevin, from Grimsby. Doing Grimsby proud again. Doing the

:24:00.:24:03.

American smooth saw them into the next round. One words, gorgeous. It

:24:04.:24:13.

is different from Kevin's hometown. Sometimes it can feel like Grimsby

:24:14.:24:16.

is a long way from the ballroom but I am here to find out if any of

:24:17.:24:20.

that's showbiz magic is rubbing off on the town. `` that showbiz magic.

:24:21.:24:33.

I do try to bust some moves. Grimsby and Cleethorpes, it doesn't get

:24:34.:24:40.

mentioned that often. It has always been related to fish and the

:24:41.:24:46.

football. It makes a change for somebody flying the flag for

:24:47.:24:52.

Grimsby. Even the players picked up some tips with this tango on the

:24:53.:24:58.

touchline. 's John Pearson scored and they got into the spirit of

Strictly Come Dancing. How would they rate their parents on Strictly

:25:03.:25:09.

take you to my dance studio where I started training. Let's go. That

dancing mood has spread. He is brilliant. He is a credit to

:25:31.:25:36.

Grimsby. We don't get much credit at Grimsby. I have seen one or two

:25:37.:25:44.

people who have been following it. I know it has been quite good for 12

:25:45.:25:49.

of the dance academies in the area. What about the ladies? While there

:26:24.:26:27.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire struggle to get in and out of the capital as

:26:28.:26:32.

trains cancelled across the network. The forecast for tomorrow, sunny

:26:33.:26:38.

with blustery showers. Feeling cooler with temperatures around 11

:26:50.:26:55.

a moneymaking exercise. There is a seven foot wall all along that road

and moved footpath. Which `` people should not be walking down there.
