on BBC six, so it is goodbye from me, and

:00:00.:00:00.

on BBC One we can join the BBC's Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:07.

North. The headlines tonight: Campaigners meet to tell planners

:00:08.:00:10.

that they don't want a new wind farm in Lincolnshire.

:00:11.:00:26.

We'll be live at the meeting in Hemswell Cliff.

:00:27.:00:28.

An unreserved apology after a patient dies from an allergic

:00:29.:00:30.

reaction to penicillin at Lincoln County Hospital.

:00:31.:00:32.

Government ministers are invited to the East Yorkshire coast to see the

:00:33.:00:36.

effect of erosion on people there. Remembrance art ` Beverley Minster

:00:37.:00:40.

is filled with 10,000 poppies. The barista from Bridlington

bringing a new taste to the town. There is wet and windy weather on

the way. I will be here with the details.

:01:02.:01:06.

"An issue of national importance" ` that's the view of one senior

:01:07.:01:08.

Conservative MP opposing the latest plans for a wind farm in

:01:09.:01:16.

Lincolnshire. The Hemswell Cliff development is being considered by

:01:17.:01:19.

planners tonight and Gainsborough MP Edward Leigh says it will ruin the

:01:20.:01:22.

local landscape. Almost 100 people attended a public meeting earlier to

:01:23.:01:27.

voice their opinions. Jake Zuckerman was there. Supporters and opponents

:01:28.:01:38.

of the wind farm plans gather to have their say. My twilight years

:01:39.:01:45.

will be ruined by this development. I cannot see will do me the area any

:01:46.:01:50.

good whatsoever. I am actually hopping mad. I wanted to come here

:01:51.:02:05.

today to see a balanced debate, so that the decision will be made on

:02:06.:02:09.

local feeling and professional input. District councillors are

:02:10.:02:19.

being urged to reject the scheme. It is on the basis that it affects the

:02:20.:02:23.

setting of a grade one listed building. It is here that they want

:02:24.:02:31.

to build ten turbines. If they are constructed, they will look

:02:32.:02:34.

something like this. In a statement, the company said:

:02:35.:02:49.

residents are up in arms, and at the meeting today local MP Edward Leigh

:02:50.:03:07.

spoke. I think it will ruin the view. I think it is an issue of

:03:08.:03:11.

national importance. In Lincolnshire, there are already more

:03:12.:03:17.

than 100 turbines operating, and in the south of the county. More than

:03:18.:03:21.

30 are under construction, and a further 37 have been approved by

:03:22.:03:29.

planners. These include one wind farm which will be the largest in

:03:30.:03:33.

the country. Councillors have heard closing arguments and will return

:03:34.:03:36.

this evening to deliberate and come to a final decision whether to

:03:37.:03:41.

approve or reject the scene. Whatever they decide, it may not be

:03:42.:03:45.

the end of the story. The developer was still have the option to appeal

:03:46.:03:49.

any decision. That could lead to a public enquiry.

:03:50.:03:55.

Joining me now is John Lincoln from the group Alliance For Wind, who has

:03:56.:03:58.

been attending today's meetings about the Hemswell Cliff wind farm.

:03:59.:04:03.

The leader of Lincolnshire county council has said enough is enough.

:04:04.:04:11.

Why do, ` ` why do companies keep submitting plans for wind turbines

:04:12.:04:16.

when they are clearly not wanted? Those opposed to them are in a

:04:17.:04:25.

minority. The silent majority are saying yes. Locals are saying they

:04:26.:04:31.

think they spot the landscape and spoiled the natural beauty. ` `

:04:32.:04:41.

spoil the landscape. Letters of support have gone

:04:42.:04:48.

through. The impression we have got is people want wind farms and green

:04:49.:04:54.

jobs. At the moment, wind is generating between one and 5% of UK

:04:55.:05:02.

energy. We would need many more turbines to change that. Due welcome

:05:03.:05:04.

more and more applications? Absolutely. We have taken 17% in the

:05:05.:05:24.

last month from wind power alone. There are 100 turbines in

:05:25.:05:29.

Lincolnshire at the moment. Is that enough for the council? I think we

:05:30.:05:39.

should support a absolutely. Onshore and offshore. It will reduce carbon.

:05:40.:05:48.

Good to talk to you. What do you think about this story

:05:49.:05:55.

tonight? Has Lincolnshire already got too many wind farms or do we

:05:56.:05:58.

just have to accept the turbines as an inevitable and essential part of

:05:59.:06:02.

our landscape? Let me know your thoughts.

:06:03.:06:21.

In a moment: Money well`spent? How new street lights could save

:06:22.:06:27.

millions of pounds for our local councils.

:06:28.:06:31.

Two men are being treated in hospital after an accident at the

:06:32.:06:35.

Conoco Phillips oil refinery in North Lincolnshire. The owners of

:06:36.:06:43.

the Humber Refinery at South Killingholme say the men were hurt

:06:44.:06:46.

following a steam leak on the site this morning. They're both being

:06:47.:06:52.

treated at the burns unit at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.

:06:53.:06:55.

An investigation is under way into the death of a man from Lincolnshire

:06:56.:06:59.

who was hit by an ambulance in Northumberland. The incident

:07:00.:07:01.

happened on the A1 near Haggerston early yesterday evening. The

:07:02.:07:03.

ambulance from the North East Service was transporting a non

:07:04.:07:06.

emergency patient when the collision happened. The man, who's said to be

:07:07.:07:15.

in his 50s and from the Mablethorpe area, died at the scene.

:07:16.:07:18.

A hospital trust has apologised unreservedly after a woman died in a

:07:19.:07:21.

Lincolnshire hospital because she was given a drug she was allergic

:07:22.:07:30.

to. 61`year`old Susan Hammond had a severe reaction to penicillin, even

:07:31.:07:33.

though her medical records and her medical alert bracelet said she

:07:34.:07:36.

shouldn't have the medication. A coroner's inquest has been held in

:07:37.:07:41.

Lincoln today. Sarah, what did the coroner have to say?

:07:42.:07:45.

Well, he said this was a very tragic case. Susan Hammond was admitted to

:07:46.:07:49.

Lincoln County Hospital with a suspected lung infection in July

:07:50.:07:53.

2009. The doctor treating her told the inquest she knew about the

:07:54.:07:55.

allergy but prescribed an anti`biotic containing penisillin

:07:56.:07:58.

because there was no record of how serious her reaction could be. Then

:07:59.:08:02.

the nurse who gave Mrs Hammond the medication failed to check her notes

:08:03.:08:06.

or look at the red allergy alert bracelet she was wearing. Today, the

:08:07.:08:12.

coroner said there had been serious errors in judgement and urged Mrs

:08:13.:08:15.

Hammond's family to try and draw a line under case. How can you draw a

:08:16.:08:25.

line when it is your mum and she has been taken from you? Anybody else

:08:26.:08:31.

would be in prison. Why is it different for Doctor? Why? She knew

:08:32.:08:39.

what she was doing, she knew. What has been the reaction from the

:08:40.:08:41.

hospital trust? The United Lincolnshire Hospitals

:08:42.:08:47.

Trust has appologised. It says "Following detailed investigations

:08:48.:08:50.

the Trust has accepted that the treatment provided was

:08:51.:08:53.

unsatisfactory." The coroner's asked them to look at introducing

:08:54.:08:56.

different coloured charts for people with severe allergies. The police

:08:57.:09:03.

have decided there's no criminal case to answer here and all the

:09:04.:09:07.

staff concerned are still working. Mrs Hammond's family say they are

:09:08.:09:10.

devastated that that's the case and they are considering taking their

:09:11.:09:13.

own civil legal action. Thank you, Sarah. ?? new line East Riding of

:09:14.:09:16.

Yorkshire Council say they will work hard to persuade a Government

:09:17.:09:19.

Minister to visit Skipsea to witness the problems caused by coastal

:09:20.:09:22.

erosion. The area has the fastest eroding coastline in Europe. 20

:09:23.:09:25.

homes on Green Lane are now worryingly close to the edge. Today,

:09:26.:09:28.

residents attended a meeting to learn of help available to them.

:09:29.:09:35.

Linsey Smith has more. Desperate not to loose their homes

:09:36.:09:39.

to the sea. Residents of Green Lane attended today's meeting hoping for

:09:40.:09:41.

help to save their properties, rather than grants to demolish them

:09:42.:09:56.

and move out. We were not permitted to attend the meeting today. Now

:09:57.:10:02.

coastal erosion is eating away at more of the area. We want him to

:10:03.:10:16.

visit to see what the coastal erosion is for local Green Lane is

:10:17.:10:19.

considered High Risk. Residents. One property has recently been

:10:20.:10:22.

demolished. For others, time is ticking. Something residents

:10:23.:10:34.

reflected on after today's meeting. Absolute waste of time. They will

:10:35.:10:37.

not these properties down. There doesn't seem to be anybody who is

:10:38.:10:44.

interested in our plight. An English man's home is his castle. Residents

:10:45.:10:48.

have been told they will not be given permission to build their own

:10:49.:10:51.

sea defences, and if they ignore this advice any defences will be

:10:52.:10:58.

removed. But some local caravan parks have erected defences without

:10:59.:11:01.

permission ` the council say they will not be removed. It leaves

:11:02.:11:09.

residents feeling an unfairness ` that they are not only fighting the

:11:10.:11:13.

powers of the sea, but the authorities. That is a story we have

:11:14.:11:17.

followed closely over the years and we will continue to do so.

:11:18.:11:20.

A study looking at the economic impact of this year's Freedom

:11:21.:11:23.

Festival in Hull says the event generated ?2 million for the city.

:11:24.:11:26.

The festival attracted 80,000 people over three days in September with

:11:27.:11:29.

some attractions like The Deep benefitting from extra visitors.

:11:30.:11:37.

Still ahead tonight: The calm before the storm ` Luke Campbell meets his

:11:38.:11:40.

opponent before Saturday's big fight.

:11:41.:11:49.

Forget fish and chips ` Bridlington's barista is bringing a

:11:50.:11:51.

new taste to the town. Red Arrows at 2pm this afternoon

:11:52.:12:08.

taken by Katie Sutton. Leila Howden spotted this in Hull City Centre.

:12:09.:12:22.

As somebody at the council will be watching like this. I wonder who did

:12:23.:12:30.

that. Spelling is not my strong point.

:12:31.:12:45.

There is some wet and windy weather on the cards. It should Brighton

:12:46.:12:57.

tomorrow. A few blustery showers. A lot of uncertainty about timings but

:12:58.:13:01.

there will be heavy rain at times. Nothing like what happened in the

:13:02.:13:05.

South on Monday. Just typically autumn weather. Quite a pleasant

:13:06.:13:12.

day. In the last couple of hours we have not seen a little patchy rain.

:13:13.:13:25.

Quite a gusty wind. Some clear spell spreading from the North. They could

:13:26.:13:30.

be a bit of patchy mist and fog in places. Temperatures could in the

:13:31.:13:38.

countryside get down to four or five degrees. So it should is to the day.

:13:39.:13:52.

` ` so a chilly start to the day. A fresh start to the day, especially

:13:53.:13:56.

in the north. It doesn't look like to buy the day. They will be some

:13:57.:14:01.

bright spells. Bright and breezy with occasional showers. Some parts

:14:02.:14:11.

will stay dry. The breeze, fresh from the South West. An unsettled

:14:12.:14:21.

theme. It looks like the heavy rain will come through on Friday. Is

:14:22.:14:33.

changeable. I sound a bit like Paul. Whenever I see you, I am nervous

:14:34.:14:39.

because I never know what is around the corner.

:14:40.:14:43.

It's costing millions of pounds of taxpayers' money, but councils

:14:44.:14:47.

across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire say new street lighting

:14:48.:14:50.

will save money in the long run and ensure that neighbourhoods are

:14:51.:14:57.

safer. The new LED lighting is cheaper to run, appears brighter,

:14:58.:15:00.

and lasts longer, saving running and maintenance costs long term. Crispin

:15:01.:15:06.

Rolfe has been looking at the effects of switching over.

:15:07.:15:08.

Dark days, and darker nights. Rising energy costs and council cuts have

:15:09.:15:13.

made light a burning issue ` on our roads and by our homes. But as

:15:14.:15:17.

authorities elsewhere switch off, our councils are turning to this `

:15:18.:15:21.

LED lights, and an experiment at Brigg in North Lincolnshire.

:15:22.:15:26.

Neighbours here have their own energy worries, but they've welcomed

:15:27.:15:29.

the cheaper lights being trialled on their estate. It is a lot clearer

:15:30.:15:35.

out and about on the street. The others, you were getting a yellow,

:15:36.:15:40.

hazy glow which was not that good. It is safe to walk up and down the

:15:41.:15:45.

street. If you have two go unanswered the door, it is an

:15:46.:15:50.

improvement. We think his is the right way to go, to phase LEDs in.

:15:51.:16:00.

We will keep the lights on. So at a time of council cuts, why

:16:01.:16:03.

switch from orange to white light? Well, LEDs use significantly less

:16:04.:16:06.

electricity, and because the bulbs last 20 years rather than six,

:16:07.:16:09.

maintenance costs will also come down, plus it's claimed they're

:16:10.:16:20.

safer for drivers. This is normally, in traditional street lighting, it

:16:21.:16:24.

was a very yellow light which interferes with the perception. With

:16:25.:16:29.

a white light, you get a very good clarity, the clear contrast and

:16:30.:16:32.

better colour definition. But switching doesn't come cheap.

:16:33.:16:35.

Hull's borrowing ?1.2 million for city centre LEDs, but that will save

:16:36.:16:41.

?96,000 in running costs each year. The East Riding will spend ?4

:16:42.:16:44.

million changing half its lamps, saving ?316,000 annually. And in

:16:45.:16:47.

North East Lincolnshire, ?8.2 million will see almost all the

:16:48.:16:51.

lights changed by 2015 ` saving the council ?22,000 per year.

:16:52.:16:59.

Lincolnshire's already introduced 3,000 LEDs and will phase in more,

:17:00.:17:03.

but all this doesn't necessarily mean the future's bright. Councils

:17:04.:17:11.

can still dim LEDs to save even more money, though they say they'll

:17:12.:17:16.

consult first. The alliance, it means there are more chances people

:17:17.:17:23.

might try and break into houses. Greater safety, cheaper cost. That

:17:24.:17:27.

is why they are finding the money for LEDs in darkened economic times.

:17:28.:17:33.

And you might want to let me know what you think about the switch over

:17:34.:17:37.

to LED street lighting. If you've got it where you live, what's your

:17:38.:17:48.

experience of it? If you're going to get it ` how do you feel about that?

:17:49.:17:56.

Yesterday we told you about calls by a senior headteacher for more state

:17:57.:17:59.

schools to offer boarding places to pupils in rural areas like East

:18:00.:18:01.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. State run boarding schools have free

:18:02.:18:04.

tuition, but accommodation has to be paid for. Ray McGovern said parents

:18:05.:18:08.

should be prepared to pay up to ?12,000 a year if they wanted to

:18:09.:18:11.

give their children a good education.

:18:12.:18:16.

Lots of people got in touch with us on this one.

:18:17.:18:47.

Thank you for all of those. In football, Scunthorpe United

:18:48.:18:52.

missed out on the chance of moving into the top three in League Two

:18:53.:18:57.

last night. The Iron conceded four goals during the first half and

:18:58.:19:06.

eventually lost 4`1 against York. Lincoln City got through to the

:19:07.:19:10.

First Round of the FA Cup after beating Worcester 3`0. They'll now

:19:11.:19:13.

play Plymouth on the ninth November. BBC Radio Humberside will have full

:19:14.:19:16.

match commentary of Hull City's Capital One Cup tie at Tottenham

:19:17.:19:20.

tonight. The Tigers can make it to the quarter finals for the first

:19:21.:19:24.

time ever. The build`up has already started on Sports Talk.

:19:25.:19:26.

Olympic gold`medal winning boxer Luke Campbell says he's hoping for a

:19:27.:19:30.

long contest when he fights in his home city of Hull this weekend. Luke

:19:31.:19:34.

faces Lee Connolly in his third professional fight on Saturday

:19:35.:19:40.

night. He won his first two matches in one round, but says this time he

:19:41.:19:44.

wants more time to show people what he's capable of in the ring. In my

:19:45.:19:54.

fight, I usually get better each round. I want the fans to see more

:19:55.:19:59.

what I can do. I think this is that fact where you will see a lot more

:20:00.:20:03.

what I can do. It will be a tough fight, and I will be ready for it.

:20:04.:20:06.

An art installation has been created with 10,000 poppies in Beverley

:20:07.:20:12.

Minster. The poppy trench symbolises the men lost in battle and those

:20:13.:20:22.

buried where they fell. Amanda White has taken a look. 10,000 poppies lie

:20:23.:20:31.

here. That is one each for money half of the British troops killed on

:20:32.:20:35.

the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Artist Martin Waters hopes

:20:36.:20:42.

this trench describes the empathy people feel for those lost in

:20:43.:20:46.

conflict. Trench is about the idea of the trenches, obviously. It is

:20:47.:20:53.

also about mass graves. I like the simplicity of it. If you can say in

:20:54.:21:00.

a simple way, you don't need a lot of other things. That was in 1945.

:21:01.:21:13.

Alongside the poppies, Deraa images. There are photographs of battle

:21:14.:21:22.

sites from all over the world. Somebody has left a piece of

:21:23.:21:25.

concrete there. The old war memorials were Illtyd lest we

:21:26.:21:31.

forget. This temporary installation is a reminder of past sacrifices. If

:21:32.:21:39.

you want to see the poppies, they will be there until McCumber the

:21:40.:21:45.

25th. A similar tribute is being created in the Holy Trinity Church

:21:46.:21:50.

in Hull. ` ` they will be there until November 25.

:21:51.:21:52.

A barista from Bridlington's latte has been crowned the best in the

:21:53.:21:55.

country. 21`year`old Oakley Wheelwright runs Crema Espresso in

:21:56.:22:02.

the town. He's beaten competition from the UK's major cities to win

:22:03.:22:05.

the title ` putting Bridlington firmly on the map for those who

:22:06.:22:09.

enjoy a more sophisticated hot beverage. Tolu Adeoye reports.

:22:10.:22:11.

Bridlington. Fresh sea air, popular beaches, fish and chips ` just three

:22:12.:22:15.

things you might associate with the town. And now it's home to the UK's

:22:16.:22:22.

best latte. Oakley Wheelwright's beaten 200 others to win what the

:22:23.:22:25.

Beverage Standards Association has called the Michelin star of the hot

:22:26.:22:34.

drinks industry. Ecstatic. It was a real sense of achievement. It is

:22:35.:22:41.

great that the best drinks were all outside of London.

:22:42.:22:43.

Judges came to taste his drinks unannounced. His espresso bar is on

:22:44.:22:48.

the same site as his mum's cafe. We have always been in catering as a

:22:49.:22:52.

family business. We ran a mobile catering unit and we had a big

:22:53.:22:59.

coffee machine. He just became so practised at making coffee, he has

:23:00.:23:04.

become a coffee geek. Being a coffee geek has paid off.

:23:05.:23:08.

Oakley's bar is one of just ten places across the country to hold

:23:09.:23:11.

the top billed five cup rating. So what does it take to make a good

:23:12.:23:18.

latte? You need to start with brilliant coffee is. You need good

:23:19.:23:27.

equipment. That is a must. You need to have the know`how and skills. I

:23:28.:23:34.

like the flavour. He just made a really nice coffee. I have tried

:23:35.:23:38.

quite a lot, but I really think this is the best I have had. It is great

:23:39.:23:46.

we have got something that is the best.

:23:47.:23:47.

Next for Oakley, the National Barista Championships. For that he's

:23:48.:23:50.

got to come up with a signature coffee. The recipe will be kept top

:23:51.:23:54.

secret, but customers here in Brid will be first to get a taste.

:23:55.:24:04.

Wonderful success story for Bridlington. The championships start

:24:05.:24:08.

in April next year. Let's get a recap of the national

:24:09.:24:11.

and regional headlines. The prosecution opens its case in the

:24:12.:24:14.

phone hacking trial ` Rebecca Brooks and Andy Coulson are accused of

:24:15.:24:18.

conspiring to intercept voicemails. A senior Conservative MP says the

:24:19.:24:22.

the latest plans for a wind farm in Lincolnshire are "of national

:24:23.:24:24.

importance" as 100 people voice their opinions at a public meeting.

:24:25.:24:42.

Back to our top story, the meeting taking place to decide whether to

:24:43.:24:49.

give the go`ahead to the Hemswell Cliff development. Jake Zuckerman is

at the meeting at the moment. If councillors reject the application,

:24:57.:25:01.

will that be the end of it? Unfortunately, for the people who

:25:02.:25:05.

have turned up, the issue is still far from over. Any decision can be

:25:06.:25:11.

appealed by the company. It will go to the planning Inspectorate who

:25:12.:25:16.

will prepare a report. That is likely to land on the desk of Eric

pickles. The concern is that even if it goes that far, it might be

:25:23.:25:26.

overturned on appeal. Thank you. Just reading some of the

:25:27.:25:30.

response on the subject to wind farms generally. Caroline in Grimsby

:25:31.:25:36.

says, I think these people should take note we are running out of

:25:37.:25:39.

energy, and at least wind turbines do not hurt the environment. Bill

:25:40.:25:43.

says, whenever a wind farm supporter attempts to convince sceptics, ask

:25:44.:25:51.

them how far their house is from the nearest multi`turbine wind farm. Roy

:25:52.:25:54.

says, wind is free, use it. Richard says, wind power is in inefficient

:25:55.:26:02.

and expensive, nuclear power is the only answer. Chris says, I have just

come back from Belgium and Germany, and wind farms have spoilt some

glorious scenery and countryside. Thank you for watching. Join me for

:26:13.:26:16.

the radio tomorrow. Have a nice evening. See you tomorrow. Good

:26:17.:26:18.

night. Everyday normal things that everybody

:26:19.:26:40.

does is where I use my energy. I haven't got an extravagant

:26:41.:26:44.

lifestyle, I've not got a hot tub outside or

:26:45.:26:45.

something like that. In essence, it is

:26:46.:26:48.

a choice between heating or eating. We will still eat

:26:49.:26:52.

and we will still have heating

:26:53.:26:57.
