on BBC One, we can Ood evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:15.

North. The headlines tonight: earning less and paying more in tax

:00:16.:00:18.

for fewer services ` calls for people in the countryside to get a

:00:19.:00:21.

better deal. A promise of more ambulance

:00:22.:00:23.

responders is given cautious welcome by a grieving family.

:00:24.:00:38.

It shouldn't take the death of someone so young to make people

:00:39.:00:42.

realise there is something wrong with your organisation. ?? new line

:00:43.:00:46.

And it's the end of the line, for part of Lincolnshire's railway

:00:47.:00:47.

heritage. Three wins out of three matches ` is

:00:48.:00:51.

Luke Campbell headed for a shot at the British title? And don't forget

:00:52.:01:00.

the forecast which follows in 15 minutes.

:01:01.:01:13.

They earn less, pay more council tax and received fewer Government

:01:14.:01:17.

grants. Tonight a petition asking ministers for more funding for

:01:18.:01:20.

people in rural communities will be handed in at the House of Commons.

:01:21.:01:23.

Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart will be joined by other MPs

:01:24.:01:29.

and community groups. Almost 20,000 people have signed the petition.

:01:30.:01:32.

Emma Massey has been to the village of Withenwick in East Yorkshire

:01:33.:01:36.

where people say their lives are being affected by cuts to services.

:01:37.:01:40.

Paul Doyle has been living in Withernwick in rural East Yorkshire

:01:41.:01:44.

for eight years. He lives just across the road from his local pub.

:01:45.:01:49.

But for many village residents there's a lack of local amenities

:01:50.:01:58.

and services. I suppose I choose to live any village but it seem

:01:59.:02:01.

unfair. We would like more facilities, for example we don't

:02:02.:02:08.

have a village hall. We have a strong community. This has become

:02:09.:02:16.

more apparent over the last few years because in a lot of villages

:02:17.:02:24.

the pub is the only thing left. It is just the way villages are these

:02:25.:02:27.

days. Rural residents earn ?2,184 a year

:02:28.:02:30.

less, on average than those in towns and cities. But they pay ?85 more in

:02:31.:02:37.

Council Tax per person, and see rural communities receive 50% fewer

:02:38.:02:40.

Government grants per head than in urban areas. So people in the

:02:41.:02:43.

countryside earn less, pay more taxes and receive substantially less

:02:44.:02:53.

support for services. And this disparity is the subject of

:02:54.:02:56.

a Fair Share petition which will be presented to Westminster tonight by

:02:57.:02:59.

Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart. The fact that the situation

:03:00.:03:11.

is as it is does not mean it is justified. We don't think that there

:03:12.:03:15.

should not be more money going into deprived urban centres but this 50%

:03:16.:03:19.

disparity is too much and it needs to be reduced.

:03:20.:03:22.

Debbie and Martin live in nearby in Whitton and say their village also

:03:23.:03:25.

lacks decent services and they welcome the Fair Share petition. We

:03:26.:03:33.

are poorly served from to city areas. We don't have so many good

:03:34.:03:39.

places for children to play and the bus service is not too good.

:03:40.:03:43.

But experts say there's a reason for the imbalance. City authorities are

:03:44.:03:51.

bound to argue that they need higher amounts because children are often

:03:52.:03:58.

poor and more deprived than those in rural areas.

:03:59.:04:00.

While there are also advantages of living in some rural areas like

:04:01.:04:03.

longer life expectancy and less crime seem inviting, many people

:04:04.:04:06.

like Paul are united in wanting a fairer deal for these communities.

:04:07.:04:10.

And today's petition could make all the difference. A very interesting

:04:11.:04:18.

discussion point. Our political editor, Tim Iredale,

:04:19.:04:21.

is live in Westminster tonight where the petition will be handed over.

:04:22.:04:24.

Will the Government take any notice of this?

:04:25.:04:27.

But what about MPs in urban areas, how would they feel about changes to

:04:28.:04:30.

the way their communities are funded? They are under tremendous

:04:31.:04:32.

pressure, especially considering that so many Government ministers

:04:33.:04:35.

themselves represent countryside constituencies. Although this rural

:04:36.:04:42.

fair share campaign is being led by Beverly's Graham Stuart, more than

:04:43.:04:46.

40 MPs will tonight hand in petitions to the House of Commons

:04:47.:04:50.

and the will claim that people living in rural areas are part of a

:04:51.:04:56.

silent majority. Poor public transport, closures of libraries are

:04:57.:05:09.

just some of the issues for them. The Government is always telling us

:05:10.:05:13.

there's only so much money to go around in difficult times. Many MPs

:05:14.:05:19.

representing places like Hull and Grimsby will say that ab initio get

:05:20.:05:25.

more money because they are more deprived. They will claim to have

:05:26.:05:34.

been disproportionately hit by austerity measures. As we all know,

:05:35.:05:44.

you cannot please all of the people all of the time.

:05:45.:05:49.

Thank you very much. We want to hear from you on this

:05:50.:05:53.

story. Should more money be available to help boost services in

:05:54.:05:56.

rural areas? Or is that the price you pay if you choose to live in the

:05:57.:05:59.

countryside? In a moment: thank you for watching.

:06:00.:06:32.

Why boxing is in great shape in Hull ` Tommy Coyle wins the biggest title

:06:33.:06:36.

of his career in front of a home crowd.

:06:37.:06:50.

A woman from Grimsby accused of stealing compensation money from her

:06:51.:06:53.

disabled daughter has been found not guilty on one count of theft. The

:06:54.:06:56.

jury reached a unanimous verdict, that Cathy Watson, seen here in the

:06:57.:06:59.

pink scarf, was not responsible of the theft of ?53,000, but have so

:07:00.:07:03.

far failed to reach a unanimous verdict on three other counts of

:07:04.:07:06.

theft, and one of transferring criminal property ` all of which she

:07:07.:07:09.

has denied. Her ex`husband Robert Hills has already pleaded guilty to

:07:10.:07:15.

four counts of theft. It's been confirmed that Neil

:07:16.:07:17.

Rhodes, Lincolnshire's temporary police Chief Constable is the only

:07:18.:07:21.

person to have applied for the role on a permanent basis. Mr Rhodes,

:07:22.:07:24.

seen here on the right was cleared of misconduct in August after a five

:07:25.:07:27.

month investigation. An interview for the role will be held later this

:07:28.:07:36.

month. Trade Unions say they'll bring in an

:07:37.:07:40.

independent experts to make sure job losses are kept to a minimum at Tata

:07:41.:07:43.

Steel in Scunthorpe. Three hundred and forty jobs are at risk at the

:07:44.:07:47.

plant. The company says the roles affected would be in management and

:07:48.:07:51.

administration. Ambulance cover across East Riding's

:07:52.:07:53.

coastal towns could soon be improved. The Yorkshire Ambulance

:07:54.:07:56.

Service is committed to increasing the number of rapid response

:07:57.:07:59.

vehicles ` following a recent review. A grieving son from Hornsea,

:08:00.:08:06.

whose dying father had to wait half an hour for an ambulance, has given

:08:07.:08:13.

the news a cautious welcome. Our health correspondent, Vicky Johnson

:08:14.:08:15.

reports. Our coastal towns can be lovely to

:08:16.:08:19.

visit ` but not if you suddenly need an ambulance. Response times are

:08:20.:08:24.

often well below the national average. But now extra rapid

:08:25.:08:30.

response vehicles could be put on stand`by in Bridlington, Withernsea

:08:31.:08:33.

and Hornsea. This news has been given a cautious welcome by the

:08:34.:08:37.

Poole family in Hornsea who had to give their dying father cardiac

:08:38.:08:40.

massage while they waited for a crew to arrive from Hull. When I see the

:08:41.:08:51.

difference in response times and those figures changing I just want

:08:52.:08:55.

another family to go what we went through. The proposed changes are in

:08:56.:09:03.

response to a recent review of the service. Ambulance officials have

:09:04.:09:06.

recently carried out a review of their service. They told us in a

:09:07.:09:09.

statement. "In the East Riding, the review suggested that it would be

:09:10.:09:12.

beneficial to have extra resources in this area, specifically more

:09:13.:09:15.

rapid response vehicles operated by fully`qualified clinicians, which

:09:16.:09:17.

will improve response times and further enhance patient outcomes.

:09:18.:09:21.

More volunteers will also be recruited. Good news. It is those

:09:22.:09:33.

cases where time is critical and we need Ambulance Services to get there

:09:34.:09:40.

more quickly. The pool family believe that more vehicles will not

:09:41.:09:50.

solve the problem. I don't think it is enough just to have them. But

:09:51.:09:56.

more needs to be done to help families stay safe. And join staff

:09:57.:10:01.

are still being consulted on the changes but it is hoped that the

:10:02.:10:05.

extra vehicles will cover coastal areas by early next year. Give us

:10:06.:10:15.

your thoughts to this problem also. Firefighters in East Yorkshire and

:10:16.:10:33.

Lincolnshire have again walked out on strike today in a dispute over

:10:34.:10:41.

pensions. We hate striking, especially with

:10:42.:10:44.

the nature of the work we do. There's more increased risk and we

:10:45.:10:52.

don't want to let the public down. But this really is a last option `

:10:53.:10:56.

we don't know what else we can do to resolve this. On Friday night I was

:10:57.:11:08.

talking to the Fire Brigade union. We asked for your views on this and

:11:09.:11:10.

got a big response. Still ahead tonight: we are at

:11:11.:12:16.

Craven Park, the second of three Rugby World Cup games in the whole.

:12:17.:12:23.

We have a very special guest will stop and best foot forward for this

:12:24.:12:28.

glamorous grand. `` glamorous grandmother.

:12:29.:12:43.

Thank you for this picture to be Wilson.

:12:44.:12:57.

Hello. It is unsettled and we will see some patchy rain spreading from

:12:58.:13:28.

the West. Coming in from the west through the course of tomorrow. It

:13:29.:13:35.

has been a beautiful day today with plenty of sunshine around and it is

:13:36.:13:38.

certainly going to be a chilly evening right across Yorkshire and

:13:39.:13:46.

Lincolnshire. Widespread ground frost although the weather front

:13:47.:13:59.

could be a way soon. Temperatures down to zero or minus one Celsius. A

:14:00.:14:17.

bright start in Bridlington. Elsewhere, cloudy. Later in the

:14:18.:14:30.

afternoon, brighter skies return. Top temperatures: eight or nine

:14:31.:14:43.

Celsius. On Wednesday it will be not bad. Some patchy rain later in the

:14:44.:14:49.

day and Thursday and Friday will have sunshine and some scattered

:14:50.:15:04.

showers. Dave has contacted to say I saw Paul in Disneyland last week!

:15:05.:15:30.

Yes! Let's not go there. Have a nice evening.

:15:31.:15:38.

They've been part of Lincolnshire life for over 150 years, but in just

:15:39.:15:44.

a few months the county's railway signal boxes will start to

:15:45.:15:46.

disappear. Network Rail plans to close 50 per year as part of a

:15:47.:15:50.

billion pound modernisation of the tracks. Simon Spark reports.

:15:51.:15:53.

It's a job that's protected our stations and level crossings for

:15:54.:15:56.

over 150 years, but both Daz and Janice will soon be saying goodbye

:15:57.:15:59.

to their signal boxes in Blankney and Sleaford to make way for over a

:16:00.:16:02.

billion pounds worth of modernisation.

:16:03.:16:08.

People are probably sad to see them go, as we are within the business,

:16:09.:16:12.

but we have to modernise and move forward into the 21st century. ??

:16:13.:16:17.

new line Network Rail have a 30`year plan which will clear away signal

:16:18.:16:20.

boxes like these for 12 state`of`the`art operating centres `

:16:21.:16:24.

with 80% of the work to be completed within 15 years.

:16:25.:16:30.

We are going to change and the technology will allow us to respond

:16:31.:16:34.

to faults and issues a lot quicker so we can get more capacity on the

:16:35.:16:38.

network and get more trains to help customers get to where they need to

:16:39.:16:44.

be. At their peak in the 1940s, there

:16:45.:16:48.

were 10,000 signal boxes, but their decline is nothing new.

:16:49.:16:54.

Modernisation of the railways is something that has constantly

:16:55.:16:56.

evolved. OLD`FASHIONED VOICEOVER: Gone are

:16:57.:16:59.

all the old hand`levers, for everything here is now

:17:00.:17:05.

electronically operated... Sleaford is unusual as it still has

:17:06.:17:09.

three of its old signal boxes in place. But already, the new barriers

:17:10.:17:12.

are up and that long`standing history is about to come to an end.

:17:13.:17:18.

It would be a shame to see the old method of signalling disappear ` one

:17:19.:17:21.

day it will have gone altogether, but that's technology for you.

:17:22.:17:26.

It is sad and it'll never be the same, but it's been around a long

:17:27.:17:29.

time and it'll never be forgotten. But we have to move on.

:17:30.:17:38.

But there is some light at the end of the tunnel: two of our

:17:39.:17:41.

Lincolnshire boxes have been awarded special listed status. This

:17:42.:17:45.

timber`framed one in Skegness built in 1882 is said to be a rare example

:17:46.:17:50.

of its type and the largest to still survive. And in Wainfleet, this box

:17:51.:17:53.

built in 1899, still retains its original exterior and lever`frame

:17:54.:18:01.

mechanism. Both will be preserved. For Daz and Janice, they'll still be

:18:02.:18:05.

part of the railway ` they'll just be moving on. A good story. A new

:18:06.:18:39.

bus service has been launched today to serve people using the steep

:18:40.:18:44.

hill. We have a very unique geography here in Lincoln. We have

:18:45.:18:49.

the city centre that is almost a mile long and to be able to get

:18:50.:18:54.

people from the commercial heart of the city to the uphill visitor

:18:55.:19:01.

attractions is very important. We can take more passengers now than

:19:02.:19:06.

before which means that we're not leaving anyone behind.

:19:07.:19:12.

The second of three rugby league world cup matches being played in

:19:13.:19:15.

Hull takes place at Craven Park tonight. Papua New Guinea take on

:19:16.:19:18.

Samoa with both sides looking for their first wind of the tournament.

:19:19.:19:22.

Our sports reporter Simon Clark is there. What impact is the world cup

:19:23.:19:32.

having on people in the area? In this area and across the country

:19:33.:19:36.

it has been so far and unqualified success. Seven and a half thousand

:19:37.:19:44.

here for the game against France. And again, seven and a half thousand

:19:45.:19:51.

up in West Cumbria. Good crowds. Today it is Papa New Guinea against

:19:52.:19:59.

Samoa. The last time PNG plays against brands they had an

:20:00.:20:02.

exhilarating start. They were then trailing the French by several

:20:03.:20:09.

points. Then this Click was born away. What is it like to have Craven

:20:10.:20:25.

Park as a small corner of Port Moresby? I have been waiting 17

:20:26.:20:36.

years and it is great to be here. People in Rugby League will be

:20:37.:20:38.

watching the game against our friends. Can you wind this one? It

:20:39.:20:53.

is a must! It will be a very tough game but the whole of Papua New

:20:54.:21:04.

Guinea is behind us. I have to tell you that this lady is nearly 90 and

:21:05.:21:11.

she will be bringing the ball on. Thank you very much indeed.

:21:12.:21:26.

Hull City secured another valuable three points in the Premier League

:21:27.:21:29.

against Sunderland. Yannick Sagbo forced Sunderland into an own goal `

:21:30.:21:33.

the only one of the game. The match though was spoilt by two red cards

:21:34.:21:36.

issued against Sunderland players for dangerous tackles.

:21:37.:21:38.

Scunthorpe United's manager Brian Laws says he's pleased with the way

:21:39.:21:41.

his player's fought back to earn a draw at Chesterfield on Saturday.

:21:42.:21:44.

After falling behind in the first half they scored a late equaliser.

:21:45.:21:47.

They're eighth in League Two. Hull's Olympic Boxing Gold medallist

:21:48.:21:51.

could be only a year away from challenging for the British title.

:21:52.:21:53.

Luke Campbell won his third professional bout at the weekend,

:21:54.:21:57.

and is set to fight again at the end of the month. But as Crispin Rolfe

:21:58.:22:01.

reports, his promoter believes titles aren't far away.

:22:02.2:54:11

As huge cloud and the home cloud. But Luke Campbell's supporters will

2:54:122:54:11

soon have to travel, as Hull's boxing star makes it to the big

2:54:122:54:11

time. On Saturday, a third professional bout but he was rarely

2:54:122:54:11

on the ropes. Speed, movement and some powerful punches gave Campbell

2:54:122:54:11

the edge. Then a flurry finished Connelly off. I am looking at alia

2:54:122:54:11

titles and English titles. He won't be far off the top. It is down to my

2:54:122:54:11

team. I concentrate on myself in the gym and getting in the best possible

2:54:122:54:11

shape I can be for each fight. Tommy Coyle also won at the weekend. The

2:54:122:54:11

referee stopped his match. He is ready to go now and I put the

2:54:122:54:11

pressure on and it worked. Could Campbell make it to? He is

2:54:122:54:11

continuing his transition in the professional arena.

2:54:122:54:11

A woman from Louth has won the prize for the UK's most glamorous gran.

2:54:122:54:11

Annemarie Leake has been winning beauty pageants since her youth and

2:54:122:54:11

says she won't be hanging up her false eyelashes and rollers anytime

2:54:122:54:11

soon! Anne`Marie Tasker has been to meet her.

2:54:122:54:11

She can make jeans and a tshirt look glamorous. But this is the look that

2:54:122:54:11

won Annemarie Leake Glamorous Gran UK 2013. The 54`year`old from Louth

2:54:122:54:11

is no stranger to beauty pageants. She was Grimsby and Cleethorpes

2:54:122:54:11

Parade Queen, Miss Lincolnshire, and Miss Vigilante before winning her

2:54:122:54:11

latest crown as Glamorous Gran. I think more people should do it! It

2:54:122:54:11

is better than any happy pill that I can think of and it gets you to

2:54:122:54:11

smile and I think nowadays there is a lot of gloom and doom, so a little

2:54:122:54:11

bit of glitz and glamour is nice! Annemarie doesn't let glamour stand

2:54:122:54:11

in the way of playing with her granddaughter, Myah. Though she'd

2:54:122:54:11

rather be a superhero than pageant princess. But her daughter Kate is

2:54:122:54:11

following in her mum's footsteps. As well as being a beautician, she's

2:54:122:54:11

currently in the running to become Miss Galaxy. My friends cannot

2:54:122:54:11

believe that it is my mum doing this. It doesn't matter what age you

2:54:122:54:11

are, you can still do it! My mum proves that things can go on to

2:54:122:54:11

however old you are. It's not hard to see how Annemarie

2:54:122:54:11

has won so many titles. But what is the secret to her glamorous looks? I

2:54:122:54:11

do not go to bed early and I have never eaten breakfast. I don't know

2:54:122:54:11

if that has anything to do with it, but I like raw food. Evidently I

2:54:122:54:11

have some good genes and have hopefully passed that on to my

2:54:122:54:11

daughters and granddaughter. There are many glamorous grans out

2:54:122:54:11

there: actress Goldie Hawn, Princess Katherine's mum, Carol Middleton,

2:54:122:54:11

and actress Joanna Lumley. Now Annemarie's joined them in being

2:54:122:54:11

absolutely fabulous. I have been eating breakfast but

2:54:122:54:11

that must be where I have been going wrong! Don't forget if you have a

2:54:122:54:11

story that we should know about, please send us an e`mail. Let's have

2:54:122:54:11

a recap of the headlines: A manhunt is launched for a missing terror

2:54:122:54:11

suspect who went on the run test in a burqa. A petition has been put

2:54:122:54:11

forward asking for more money for rural communities. A bright start

2:54:122:54:11

and dry and brighter in the afternoon.

2:54:122:54:11

Roger says that in Lincoln 's Stagecoach run ten minute services

2:54:122:54:11

and yet at RAF Scampton where I live we have to get to our servers. We

2:54:122:54:11

have to get for bosses for a trip of two hours to go for miles. Another
