We can now joined the Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:08.

North. The headlines tonight: The number of parents being fined for

:00:09.:00:11.

school absences has trebled since last year.

:00:12.:00:22.

She had to have ten days. They refused it, and we got fined ?120.

:00:23.:00:26.

You can't stub it out but businesses are asking e`cigarette users to turn

:00:27.:00:32.

it off altogether. I am live at the Deep, which will be

:00:33.:00:39.

used as the backdrop for a film premiere. I will be back with your

:00:40.:00:45.

forecast. Parents are defying a Government

:00:46.:00:58.

clamp`down and still taking children on holiday during term time. And

:00:59.:01:02.

hundreds more are being fined because of it. Every council area in

:01:03.:01:12.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire has at least doubled the number of fines

:01:13.:01:16.

handed out since they were ordered to get tough on absence. The

:01:17.:01:19.

Government says missing school seriously damages childrens' chances

:01:20.:01:22.

in exams. But some parents say the fines are nothing compared to the

:01:23.:01:25.

big holiday discounts they're getting. Sarah Corker reports.

:01:26.:01:35.

A family holiday in the sun. Parents can make big savings by taking

:01:36.:01:39.

children away when they should be in the classroom. Swapping school for

:01:40.:01:45.

the Costas. Sophie had so much fun on that one. The Robinsons say the

:01:46.:01:48.

only way they afford a break is to go in term time. Something they got

:01:49.:01:54.

fined for. You look at playing the school ?120, and that is nothing

:01:55.:02:01.

compared to paying up to ?800 more to go to the same place at a later

:02:02.:02:08.

date. Being of at this age, I do not think But the Government's taking a

:02:09.:02:11.

tougher stance. Will make any difference. New rules mean head

:02:12.:02:14.

teachers can now only give permission in exceptional

:02:15.:02:21.

circumstances. It is the difference we see attendance has on achievement

:02:22.:02:26.

in schools. Every day you have out`of`school is making a huge

:02:27.:02:30.

difference. I think it is too big a risk to take. A number of parents

:02:31.:02:38.

fined for taking children out of school has more than trebled in East

:02:39.:02:41.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. In Hull, there has been the biggest

:02:42.:02:48.

increase. 71 penalty notices were issued last year by Hull city

:02:49.:02:58.

council. That has jumped up this year to 241. One travel agent told

:02:59.:03:02.

me parents are simply ignoring the rules. Are the fine is working as a

:03:03.:03:10.

deterrent? No. I did not think they would. I think they would have to

:03:11.:03:15.

become a very big before it started to have an impact. It would probably

:03:16.:03:22.

need to be something like ?150 per child per week. I think that would

:03:23.:03:25.

stop families being able to travel. More than 100,000 people have signed

:03:26.:03:28.

a petition for the rules to be relaxed. Others today support the

:03:29.:03:34.

fines. School is more important than taking them for one holiday. It

:03:35.:03:43.

won't stop parents taking their children out. I would rather pay a

:03:44.:03:47.

fine then pay more for expensive holiday. The Government says too

:03:48.:03:50.

much time off affects grades. Planning their next break, the

:03:51.:03:52.

Robinsons say they'll pay another fine to make sure they get an

:03:53.:03:55.

affordable faimily holiday. Parent Craig Langman is calling for the

:03:56.:03:58.

Government to reverse its zero tolerence approach to term time

:03:59.:04:01.

holidays. This week he handed a petition to the Department of

:04:02.:04:08.

Education with 126,000 signatures. I asked him why he thinks a cheap

:04:09.:04:12.

holiday is more important than being in class. I believe passionately

:04:13.:04:20.

that a child's education is number one. I am not advocating we should

:04:21.:04:25.

be taking our kids out of school whenever we feel like it. That is

:04:26.:04:30.

not the reason behind this campaign. It is to bring common sense back

:04:31.:04:37.

into the education system. The Department of Education said

:04:38.:04:41.

children lose out on valuable time and wait time catching up. They are

:04:42.:04:56.

right. Not .5% of time off is for children being taken now for

:04:57.:05:04.

holidays. I Usain gone on holiday can be educational? Absolutely, yes.

:05:05.:05:10.

What, sitting in Benidorm in the sunshine is educational? No. In my

:05:11.:05:17.

circumstance, I took my son to Rome. We went to the Colosseum, Vatican

:05:18.:05:26.

City. He was interested because of various trips we have done. Do you

:05:27.:05:33.

think finding is wrong? A lot of parents I have spoken to say even

:05:34.:05:36.

with the fine, it is still cheaper to have a holiday during term time.

:05:37.:05:42.

Absolutely. That is why it is a joke. For people who can afford to

:05:43.:05:45.

pay the fine, it is not an issue, and they are generally the one

:05:46.:05:51.

saying, forget the fine, put your child in school. We're talking about

:05:52.:05:56.

normal, working`class, hard`working people, people who cannot afford to

:05:57.:06:01.

go on holiday when the holiday companies are trying to rip us off.

:06:02.:06:05.

When common sense back into education. Allow parents to have a

:06:06.:06:13.

say. I don't send my child to an institution. Thank you.

:06:14.:06:16.

Should parents be allowed some lee`way by schools if they want to

:06:17.:06:24.

go on holiday in term time? Are fines fair?

:06:25.:06:56.

In a moment: the referee has crossed a point.

:06:57.:07:04.

Charged for criticising a referee, but what message is Bruces'

:07:05.:07:06.

behaviour sending to grassroots football?

:07:07.:07:10.

Horse meat has been found in tinned beef at a shop in Lincolnshire.

:07:11.:07:13.

Routine testing was being carried out on slices of beef in gravy from

:07:14.:07:17.

Home Bargains in Grantham when the horse DNA was discovered. Jessica

:07:18.:07:24.

Lane is in the Lincoln studio newsroom. Jessica, should people be

:07:25.:07:29.

concerned about this? NO SOUND.

:07:30.:07:42.

I've spoken to Lincolnshire Trading Standards, who found the horse meat.

:07:43.:08:19.

SILENCE. A murder investigation has been

:08:20.:08:31.

launched after a man died in Lincoln Prison. Alan Goode, who was 73, was

:08:32.:08:38.

found in his cell at quarter to six this morning. He was serving a

:08:39.:08:44.

nine`month sentence for voyeurism. A 35`year`old inmate has been arrested

:08:45.:08:47.

in connection with the incident and is helping police with their

:08:48.:08:49.

enquiries. Police have named the woman found

:08:50.:08:53.

after a fire in Grimsby. The body of 53`year`old Nicola Heaton was

:08:54.:08:55.

discovered in the house on Westward Ho after the fire was put out. A

:08:56.:09:00.

joint investigation is now under way by the police and Fire Service.

:09:01.:09:03.

The Government is considering letting MPs debate Tata Steel's

:09:04.:09:06.

decision to lose 340 jobs at its plant in Scunthorpe. The planned

:09:07.:09:10.

cuts, announced earlier this week, have been blamed on weak demand in

:09:11.:09:15.

the construction industry. The Labour MP for Scunthorpe, Nic Dakin,

:09:16.:09:21.

raised his concerns in the Commons. This week, tartar steel announced

:09:22.:09:25.

500 job losses, 340 in my constituency. Can we have a

:09:26.:09:31.

statement or debate in the house on what the government is doing to

:09:32.:09:34.

support the steel industry and steelworkers at this time? Any

:09:35.:09:39.

redundancies are of course regrettable, and I think we feel

:09:40.:09:45.

very much for the difficult time the workforce is experiencing. Job

:09:46.:09:48.

centre plus and their rapid response service will be available and do all

:09:49.:09:53.

they can to support those workers. We will continue to follow that

:09:54.:09:57.

story. ?? new line Hull City suffered League Cup disappointment

:09:58.:09:59.

last night after going out against Tottenham Hotspur on penalties,

:10:00.:10:05.

after the match finished 2`2. Spurs led the shoot`out 8`7 when City's

:10:06.:10:08.

Ahmed Elmohamdy stepped forward but the Tigers' player hit it against

:10:09.:10:14.

the keeper's legs. Well, today, manager Steve Bruce said he would

:10:15.:10:17.

argue his case after been charged with misconduct for comments made at

:10:18.:10:21.

the weekend about the referee Michael Oliver. It followed a

:10:22.:10:23.

penalty decision which saw City lose the game. Simon Clark has been

:10:24.:10:32.

finding out if negative comments about referees is having an effect

:10:33.:10:40.

on grassroots football. The kid who scored should have been on the

:10:41.:10:47.

pitch, in my opinion. You don't get the good decision. He has profited

:10:48.:10:55.

by diving. He has given the penalty against us.

:10:56.:10:57.

It's the currency of Match Of The Day. The post`match comments often

:10:58.:11:00.

contain a spiky remark about the referee. And it's for these words

:11:01.:11:10.

Steve Bruce finds himself in the dock. It is difficult to comment

:11:11.:11:17.

because I will find myself in the dock. There was one which, in my

:11:18.:11:24.

opinion, makes a mockery of it. Show a bit of common sense! The referee

:11:25.:11:32.

has cost them a point. He was cross that this had been given as a

:11:33.:11:36.

penalty ` a decision the officials later considered wrong. Steve

:11:37.:11:38.

Lazenby is responsible for bringing future referees into the game. I

:11:39.:11:55.

have come to the county headquarters of the East Riding. He plays down

:11:56.:11:59.

suggestions that managers and pundits are putting off those who

:12:00.:12:09.

aspire to officiate. I think a lot of people take it as a challenge and

:12:10.:12:13.

throw the gauntlet down, and say, I want to be having a go at that. It

:12:14.:12:18.

is something good for them to get involved in. You can go into the

:12:19.:12:25.

European game and ultimately to the World Cup. The fact remains that no

:12:26.:12:29.

game ` be it in the Premier League or a humble park pitch ` can take

:12:30.:12:33.

place without a man or woman in the middle.

:12:34.:12:39.

Still ahead tonight: A film premiere in Hull tonight against a landmark

:12:40.:12:40.

setting. It is Halloween. Thank you for all

:12:41.:13:07.

the pictures. This carving of a Star Wars character has been sent in by

:13:08.:13:16.

Dawn Wood. Darth Maul. Jennie in Louth sent in these pictures of

:13:17.:13:19.

pumpkins, which she and her family carved. And these were sent in by

:13:20.:13:23.

Peter Robinson and his family ` he says it's a hard way of making

:13:24.:13:31.

pumpkin soup. Happy Halloween. Keeley Cook Donovan, good evening.

:13:32.:13:40.

This one looks likely uses the same fake tan issue.

:13:41.:13:50.

How we laughed. It is going to be allowed to dry

:13:51.:13:54.

evening. Tomorrow will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain. As we go

:13:55.:13:59.

through the rest of the week and weekend, there will be further areas

:14:00.:14:05.

of low pressure pushing up from the South West. Saturday can be very

:14:06.:14:13.

windy. Today, we have had a fair amount of cloud. We have seen some

:14:14.:14:17.

breaks in the cloud. In the short term, it will be largely dry, but

:14:18.:14:22.

later this evening, we will see a few heavy showers spreading down.

:14:23.:14:27.

The whole spreading from the north. A bit of missed and fault.

:14:28.:14:31.

Temperatures back into single figures once again.

:14:32.:14:48.

It will be a bright start to the day tomorrow. It will develop into a

:14:49.:15:01.

miserable day. It will not be particularly breezy. Temperatures

:15:02.:15:11.

rising to around 12 or 13. And miserable cloudy wet day to come.

:15:12.:15:19.

Saturday will be clear and frostily. A decent morning. In the afternoon,

:15:20.:15:27.

a band of rain will spread in from the west. Sunday looks like a

:15:28.:15:33.

glossary day. Last night, somebody wrote, Keeley

:15:34.:15:46.

Donovan with straight hair, ding`dong. Not very PC. Don't be

:15:47.:15:55.

knocking on my door like you did last year.

:15:56.:15:55.

I will not. A growing number of businesses in

:15:56.:16:02.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are banning the use of e`cigarettes in

:16:03.:16:05.

their buildings. Train and bus companies, offices and some pubs are

:16:06.:16:16.

concerned about how it looks. The electronic cigarettes turn nicotine

:16:17.:16:19.

into a vapour which is inhaled, but the fumes look like smoke and some

:16:20.:16:22.

people say that's confusing. Simon Spark reports. The smoking ban came

:16:23.:16:26.

into effect in 2007. It was pretty straightforward, ban smoking in

:16:27.:16:29.

public places. We have seen increasing confusion because of

:16:30.:16:36.

these, e`cigarettes. They have no tobacco and are exempt from

:16:37.:16:39.

smoke`free legislation. That hasn't stopped them from being banned in

:16:40.:16:43.

council offices, on trains, restaurants and buses. They are

:16:44.:16:49.

banned because it is difficult for our stuff to tell the difference

:16:50.:16:53.

between a traditional cigarette and an e`cigarette. It might send wrong

:16:54.:16:58.

signals to other people on the buses. They are also banned in one

:16:59.:17:03.

of the largest pub chains in the UK, Wetherspoon. If we are busy, we do

:17:04.:17:11.

not know if it is from a cigarette or an e`cigarette. It is to make it

:17:12.:17:15.

consistent. Martin started using them a year and a half ago, and

:17:16.:17:19.

thinks a perception of them has a long way to go. I think the balance

:17:20.:17:24.

is wrong and people are against them for the wrong reasons. If somebody

:17:25.:17:28.

lights up a cigarette now, you would smelly straightaway. I think it is

:17:29.:17:35.

quite easy to tell the difference. Adel shows her view. She has taken

:17:36.:17:39.

over a pub and told her Christmas there welcome to use them. We have a

:17:40.:17:46.

lot of local customs, regulars. To be honest, people know not to

:17:47.:17:52.

smoking pubs now. There are about 1.3 million users of the cigarette

:17:53.:17:57.

in the UK, a figure that has quadrupled in the last three years.

:17:58.:18:01.

Because of that, some public health bodies want to see them classed as a

:18:02.:18:04.

medicine so they can be regulated and licensed. Would that affect what

:18:05.:18:10.

people can use them? I do think there should be smoked anywhere if

:18:11.:18:16.

there were classed as medication. I think most people wouldn't mind as

:18:17.:18:19.

long as it is not a real cigarette. That is different from smoking. They

:18:20.:18:25.

are designed to look like cigarettes, and that is why we treat

:18:26.:18:30.

them like we do. The popularity of these continues to increase. What is

:18:31.:18:34.

socially acceptable continues to be accepted.

:18:35.:18:40.

I would be keen to get your views on this one as well. What do you think?

:18:41.:19:01.

The power Company RWE had its planning application for ten wind

:19:02.:19:05.

turbines ` the height of Lincoln Cathedral ` rejected at a meeting of

:19:06.:19:13.

West Lindsey Council last night. This was the reaction of opponents

:19:14.:19:16.

of the wind farm proposed for Hemswell Cliff. Is this a the

:19:17.:19:27.

company may now appeal. We had a lot of response after we

:19:28.:19:29.

covered this story last night. With We'd like to invite you to come to

:19:30.:20:37.

our party for Children In Need. The fair for Pudsey with a mini funfair

:20:38.:20:41.

and entertainment takes place at the Sirius Academy in Hull on 15th

:20:42.:20:44.

November. You can arrive any time from half five, but you do need to

:20:45.:20:48.

book your free tickets through our reception in Hull.

:20:49.:20:51.

The engineering of a major piece of art for Heathrow airport took place

:20:52.:21:08.

in Hull. Now this film of how it was made is being projected onto the

:21:09.:21:11.

side of the Deep Aquarium. Caroline Bilton is there ahead of the

:21:12.:21:14.

screening. Is this unusual for the Deep to be used as a backdrop for a

:21:15.:21:18.

film premiere? Peter, this is a first for Hull. I was given a sneak

:21:19.:21:24.

preview of what it will look like. It will go on show in ten minutes

:21:25.:21:29.

time. This is what it will look like. It is pretty atmospheric on

:21:30.:21:35.

this riverfront. It tells the story of slipstream, this sculpture that

:21:36.:21:40.

will greet passengers in terminal two, Heathrow. It has been made

:21:41.:21:44.

possible by engineering here in Hull. The artist behind it has come

:21:45.:22:02.

to see this film. We are launching a very horizontal piece of

:22:03.:22:20.

architecture. At a time when Hull is trying to become a City of Culture,

:22:21.:22:23.

this is seen as a way of telling people what we are both in

:22:24.:22:26.

broadcasting our achievements to wider audience. I spoke to the man

:22:27.:22:31.

behind the bid, to ask what he thinks this says about the cultural

:22:32.:22:38.

ambitions of Hull. It is important people see you as an important

:22:39.:22:43.

cultural place, not just a city at the end of a railway line that

:22:44.:22:49.

nobody goes to. It is important, because we can and do do these

:22:50.:22:55.

things. The film is going to be playing on a continuous loop every

:22:56.:23:03.

night between seven and nine. My piece of advice is work North West.

:23:04.:23:06.

It is quite cold. I will look at it on my way home.

:23:07.:23:09.

Christopher Biggins, Bob Carolgees and Spit the Dog have been in Hull

:23:10.:23:13.

to promote their pantomime Jack And The Beanstalk. They entertained

:23:14.:23:16.

half`term crowds in the St Stephen's shopping centre and said they were

:23:17.:23:19.

looking forward to performing at the Hull New Theatre this Christmas

:23:20.:23:28.

season. Here we are. I look around and there are these gorgeous

:23:29.:23:30.

buildings. I think it looks fabulous. I am excited about

:23:31.:23:36.

appearing in Hull. I have known Chris for a while and it will be

:23:37.:23:39.

great to work within. This is a good panto. The pantomime opens in

:23:40.:23:46.

December, Jack and the been stopped. A couple from Lincoln have thanked

:23:47.:23:50.

the RNLI for rescuing their pet dog who fell 40 feet off a cliff near

:23:51.:24:02.

Pembroke in Wales. He is Tom and Kylie Crowe were on holiday when

:24:03.:24:05.

their Chocolate Labrador Spice accidentally fell 12 metres into the

:24:06.:24:12.

sea. In breach is He was swimming for 40 minutes before lifeboat crew

:24:13.:24:16.

were able to reach him. Just They say they were both in shock when it

:24:17.:24:19.

happened and are unbelievably grateful to the crew. The RNLI say

:24:20.:24:23.

Spice was lucky to survive the fall. For a cat, life couldn't get much

:24:24.:24:27.

better than Graham's. The Staff at the Pets At Home store in Boston in

:24:28.:24:30.

Lincolnshire say he turned up one day and made himself at home. Now

:24:31.:24:34.

he's always there when they open up and they have to throw him out at

:24:35.:24:38.

the end of the day. But has Graham got an owner, Gemma Dawson

:24:39.:24:41.

investigates. New mums and I know what you're thinking.

:24:42.:24:45.

It's not unusual to see animals in a pet store. You know me and you and

:24:46.:24:51.

Minster style But this cat is not for sale. Graham's a regular visitor

:24:52.:24:54.

here ` shunning outside adventure for days at this shop in Boston. And

:24:55.:24:58.

when he first came in, we tried to deter him. He is such a cheeky

:24:59.:25:02.

character we started letting him in. Generally, he tends to play with our

:25:03.:25:09.

ties. He might have a bit of food, little something to drink.

:25:10.:25:14.

Sometimes, he will stay at the hamsters and scratch at the glass.

:25:15.:25:16.

It doesn't worry the hamsters. Graham's been coming here for the

:25:17.:25:20.

last three months. One customer even bought him these treats. But the

:25:21.:25:24.

staff here don't know who owns him. And Graham's not the only cat with

:25:25.:25:34.

an independent streak. Meet Casper ` his owner discovered he's been

:25:35.:25:37.

riding on the buses in Devon. While recently, scientists from the

:25:38.:25:40.

University of Lincoln worked on this documentary showing what cats get up

:25:41.:25:43.

to when we're not looking. Back in Boston, Graham's proving popular

:25:44.:25:50.

with the customers here too. I have not seen many cats who would lie

:25:51.:25:56.

like that and be so quiet and calm. I think he is really, really nice

:25:57.:26:04.

and soft. People are friendly. He is a people car.

:26:05.:26:07.

Graham's now become a bit of a local celebrity. And what does every

:26:08.:26:14.

celebrity need? A stunt double. He is bringing in a couple of friends,

:26:15.:26:18.
