six, on Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:09.

North. The headlines tonight: Despite a planning defeat,

:00:10.:00:11.

campaigners say the fight goes on to secure this unique part of our

:00:12.:00:20.

wartime heritage. We will do everything we can to

:00:21.:00:23.

achieve our aims. Families facing an uncertain future

:00:24.:00:26.

as mental health services for children are under review.

:00:27.:00:34.

Great growing conditions for these trees mean a bumper crop just in

:00:35.:00:37.

time for the festive season. And the music tribute acts bringing

:00:38.:00:50.

home national awards. Join me for the forecast.

:00:51.:00:57.

It's stood in this condition for more than 70 years, but campaigners

:00:58.:01:02.

fighting to maintain what is one of Britain's last remaining World War

:01:03.:01:05.

II bomb sites have suffered a huge blow to their hopes. The National

:01:06.:01:14.

Picture Theatre in Hull was a cinema that was hit by German bombs in 1941

:01:15.:01:18.

and enthusiasts hoped to add an education centre to the site to tell

:01:19.:01:21.

schoolchildren about the Hull blitz. But this afternoon councillors voted

:01:22.:01:24.

to allow commercial development on the land around the ruin. Gemma

:01:25.:01:34.

Dawson reports. The future of this historic sitein

:01:35.:01:41.

the hands of these councillors. The owner of this land wants to build an

:01:42.:01:45.

extension at the back of the Swan Inn pub ` on the right ` and erect a

:01:46.:01:49.

fence to divide its patio garden from the remains of the National

:01:50.:01:52.

Picture Theatre. After surveying the area, councillors voted to approve

:01:53.:01:55.

the plans at a packed committee meeting this afternoon. It is a

:01:56.:02:06.

setback. It is unfortunate. I doubt anybody is happy, but we have to go

:02:07.:02:15.

by the law. It's a disappointing blow for Alan.

:02:16.:02:27.

He's part of a group that wants to preserve this site for future

:02:28.:02:30.

generations. It stops are doing what we wanted to do, to have an

:02:31.:02:38.

education building behind it. But you don't own this land. Quite

:02:39.:02:42.

right. We have to take on board what was said. They also said we haven't

:02:43.:02:47.

come forward with money. A lot has been going on in the background.

:02:48.:02:52.

This is the last remaining civilian bomb site ruins in the whole of the

:02:53.:03:00.

UK. It was largely destroyed when it was bombed. Cinemagoers had been

:03:01.:03:08.

inside watching Charlie Chaplin film when the air raid sounded.

:03:09.:03:16.

Like Hull, Coventry was heavily bombed during the Second World War.

:03:17.:03:21.

Now thousands of people visit the city's Cathedral every year to learn

:03:22.:03:30.

about what happened here. The team in Hull believe the National Picture

:03:31.:03:33.

Theatre could also attract similar interest. Still, for now, the site's

:03:34.:03:41.

future has been decided. But campaigners say they haven't given

:03:42.:03:45.

up hope of securing the site in the future.

:03:46.:03:47.

A little earlier I spoke to Neil Redfern from English Heritage who

:03:48.:03:50.

gave his reaction to the decision to develop the Beverley Road site. On

:03:51.:03:56.

the one hand, it is slightly disappointing. It gives us more

:03:57.:04:00.

challenges and how we take forward the conservation of the site.

:04:01.:04:08.

Nothing new in terms of the challenges we are already faced

:04:09.:04:13.

with. Where you in favour with keeping it? Is it historically

:04:14.:04:23.

important? Yes, certainly. The site is quite significant. It is a unique

:04:24.:04:28.

site in terms of being the last surviving civilian bomb site. Also,

:04:29.:04:34.

the site that most reflects the event that happened on the night it

:04:35.:04:40.

was bombed. We have not really been to this site and tidied it up. We

:04:41.:04:44.

can go there and fully understand all the events that took place that

:04:45.:04:48.

evening when the site was actually bombed, from when the people were in

:04:49.:04:53.

the auditorium, where they tried to leave to go on to go onto Beverley

:04:54.:04:56.

Road, and then they retreated back into the auditorium. The auditorium

:04:57.:05:02.

and the entrance was where they were when the bomb fell. It has been

:05:03.:05:11.

derelict for over 70 years. Isn't the time we just have to move on and

:05:12.:05:20.

improve an area? Yes, but I think retaining the site as it now is with

:05:21.:05:25.

enhanced access and enhanced interpretation would fundamentally

:05:26.:05:29.

contribute to doing that to the area. The site could form a really

:05:30.:05:46.

comprehensive and vital contribution to open it up. Whole has such an

:05:47.:05:59.

important history ` ` Hull has such an important role in history. Good

:06:00.:06:09.

to talk to you. Thank you. I would be keen to get your views on this

:06:10.:06:15.

one. Do you think it is right that the developer is being allowed to

:06:16.:06:25.

build on this ruin? Thoughts on this.

:06:26.:06:51.

In a moment: Tributes are paid by the family of a retired head teacher

:06:52.:07:00.

found dead in the Alps. Two MPs say they want answers

:07:01.:07:04.

following concerns about a unit which treats children and young

:07:05.:07:08.

people with mental health issues. Parents say they've been told that

:07:09.:07:12.

day care at the West End Unit in Hessle in East Yorkshire is under

:07:13.:07:24.

threat. The trust that runs it will only say that it's reviewing the

:07:25.:07:27.

situation, but one mum says she wouldn't be able to cope if the

:07:28.:07:30.

centre closes. Vicky Johnson reports.

:07:31.:07:32.

This woman's son suffers from a range of mental health problems

:07:33.:07:36.

including a severe eating disorder. At 14, he weighs just over four and

:07:37.:07:46.

a half stone. After struggling on her own with him for years, he's

:07:47.:07:50.

recently attended the West End unit in Hessle. We've changed her voice

:07:51.:07:52.

to protect the family's identity. You have to deal with it. Trying to

:07:53.:08:01.

get him to eat, drink. You live your life saying, eat, drink. He tells

:08:02.:08:08.

you he's dying and there is nothing. The only respite I've had is the day

:08:09.:08:12.

unit. But there's now some doubt over the future of day services at

:08:13.:08:17.

the West End unit. Some parents say they've been told it could close by

:08:18.:08:21.

the end of the year. We have asked for someone from the foundation

:08:22.:08:24.

trust to talk to us about the centre's future. So far, they have

:08:25.:08:27.

declined our request. Instead they have given us a statement which says

:08:28.:08:30.

only that the facilities here at West End are currently being

:08:31.:08:39.

reviewed. To ensure they are still, in their words, "appropriate for

:08:40.:08:42.

those who use their services." This uncertainty comes just a fortnight

:08:43.:08:45.

after two MPs from Hull raised the issue of local mental health

:08:46.:08:48.

services for children during a Commons debate. These are children

:08:49.:08:51.

with very difficult and complicated conditions. Families who are often

:08:52.:09:00.

at the end of their tether, and now there is this uncertainty as to

:09:01.:09:03.

whether there will be local services, or not. It is not fair on

:09:04.:09:07.

people, leaving them in the state of limbo. This mum said she could no

:09:08.:09:11.

longer cope if the unit was to close. I was getting ready for the

:09:12.:09:15.

point when somebody else has them. What you do, he is my son. I have

:09:16.:09:19.

had no respite from him. Families have struggled since the end of

:09:20.:09:22.

residential care six months ago, and they now fear their lives could get

:09:23.:09:33.

harder if the day unit closes too. The Hull West and Hessle MP Alan

:09:34.:09:37.

Johnson held a Commons debate on the level of services being offered to

:09:38.:09:40.

young people at the unit just two weeks ago. I spoke to him earlier

:09:41.:09:44.

and asked what his reaction was to the possibility of the unit closing?

:09:45.:09:54.

It would be a disaster. I have yet to get to the bottom on whether the

:09:55.:10:00.

day services are closing. It has caused huge problems, which I was

:10:01.:10:04.

talking about in Parliament. To take away the day unit completely would

:10:05.:10:11.

be extraordinary. There would be a crisis. We are not going to resolve

:10:12.:10:25.

it by closing centres. It issued by a small number of people. Can we

:10:26.:10:32.

justify the cost? Yes. This is adolescent children 's mental

:10:33.:10:37.

health. If we don't resolve these problems earlier, these children

:10:38.:10:40.

will have these problems when they grow older. All the evidence and

:10:41.:10:48.

research accepted by the government shows fall 2% of mental health

:10:49.:10:54.

problems occur under the age of 14 ` ` 40%. We were dealing with it quite

:10:55.:11:11.

successfully. What can you do to influence the decision now? We have

:11:12.:11:20.

had the Parliamentary debate. The 13`year`old was taken 103 miles away

:11:21.:11:26.

to be treated. That is not the society I want to be living in? We

:11:27.:11:35.

have been invited to have a meeting. That takes place early December.

:11:36.:11:46.

Norman Lamb said all the things in the debate he should about the

:11:47.:11:56.

importance of mental health. He has two understand it is a national

:11:57.:12:06.

issue. Thank you for your time. Alan Johnson talking. Some more news.

:12:07.:12:11.

A firefighter has been hurt while tackling a fire in North

:12:12.:12:13.

Lincolnshire. Humberside Fire and Rescue were called to the fire at a

:12:14.:12:17.

derelict building in Barton this morning. Structural engineers have

:12:18.:12:25.

been on site assessing the damage. The firefighter received minor

:12:26.:12:28.

injuries and is recovering at home. Hospitals across Lincolnshire are

:12:29.:12:31.

preparing to deal with an increase in patients during the winter month.

:12:32.:12:34.

The Government's given an extra eight million pounds to A and E

:12:35.:12:38.

units in the county to help ease pressure on services. The United

:12:39.:12:42.

Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust says it's considering sharing resources

:12:43.:12:44.

with other health authorities to help improve patient care.

:12:45.:12:52.

Probation service staff have returned to work following a

:12:53.:12:55.

national 24`hour strike. The union is objecting to proposals to

:12:56.:12:58.

transfer parts of the service to private firms such as G4S and Serco.

:12:59.:13:09.

Humberside Police say they've seen a 400% increase in the number of

:13:10.:13:12.

catalytic convertors being stolen from cars. The convertors reduce

:13:13.:13:14.

poisonous gases from a vehicle's exhaust but are being stolen because

:13:15.:13:22.

they contain precious metals. We had 15 bands lined up, ready for

:13:23.:13:27.

delivery that evening. Within 45 minutes, the thief managed to

:13:28.:13:32.

hacksaw the converters of the vehicles.

:13:33.:13:40.

The body of an East Yorkshire woman, who's been living in France, has

:13:41.:13:43.

been found in the Alps. Carol Sheridan, who was originally from

:13:44.:13:46.

Driffield, went missing just over a week ago. Her family had appealed

:13:47.:13:52.

for help in finding her from hikers in France. Amanda White is here now.

:13:53.:13:58.

When was Mrs Sheridan's body found? Today Mrs Sheridan's family posted a

:13:59.:14:01.

statement on social media to say her body has been discovered close to

:14:02.:14:05.

where her car was found at a popular walking spot in the French Alps this

:14:06.:14:09.

morning. Mrs Sheridan had moved to the area, which is around 20 miles

:14:10.:14:13.

from Lake Geneva, a couple of years ago. It's understood she'd left the

:14:14.:14:16.

washing up in the sink, and her windows open and had decided to go

:14:17.:14:21.

out and enjoy a a couple of hours in the mountains a week last Sunday.

:14:22.:14:23.

73`year`old Carol's disappearance ten days ago sparked a big online

:14:24.:14:27.

campaign for help in tracking her down. Air and ground searches by the

:14:28.:14:35.

professionals, though, were hampered by snow and freezing temperatures.

:14:36.:14:38.

Mrs Sheridan's grandson Simon made a statement on Facebook earlier in

:14:39.:14:41.

which he said thank you to everyone who had helped in the search for his

:14:42.:14:45.

grandmother and added that "Carol was an amazing woman who lived an

:14:46.:14:51.

amazing life. She was dearly loved by many and will be hugely missed by

:14:52.:14:55.

all of us. Personally, I am taking some comfort in that her last

:14:56.:14:58.

moments were spent doing something she loved."

:14:59.:15:00.

Still ahead tonight: Perfect growing conditions means a bumper crop for

:15:01.:15:08.

our Christmas tree farmers. Just like the real thing ` top

:15:09.:15:11.

tribute acts bring national awards home.

?? new line Airmyn near Goole taken by Barry Hunter.

:15:24.:15:41.

Thank you for that. Another picture tomorrow. Roger wrote to me after

:15:42.:15:54.

last night, and said, did Paul Hudson pinch that shirt off a guy on

:15:55.:15:59.

his way into work yesterday? Whatever. It is great news, because

:16:00.:16:08.

tomorrow looks set to be a lovely day. Lots of sunshine around. All

:16:09.:16:15.

part said to be dry. Most of those will be dry. That is because we have

:16:16.:16:19.

got one system down across northern France. There is some nice weather

:16:20.:16:30.

to look forward to. It is pretty dreary out there. Rain and drizzle

:16:31.:16:40.

across a good part of Lincolnshire. Damp, chilly night. Other cast as

:16:41.:16:47.

well. That rain will pull away and it is clear skies. It will be quite

:16:48.:16:51.

chilly across parts of East Yorkshire. The breeze will pick up

:16:52.:17:04.

later. The sun rises at 7:12am. Your next high water time in Cleethorpes

:17:05.:17:11.

at 7:51am. A lovely start to the day. Lots of blue sky. I think we

:17:12.:17:18.

will keep a lot of sunshine. A small chance of an isolated shower.

:17:19.:17:29.

Breezy, but sunshine. Top temperatures about 10 Celsius.

:17:30.:17:41.

Further ahead, Friday and Saturday, a scattering of showers but they

:17:42.:17:48.

should be few and far between. That is the forecast.

:17:49.:17:54.

Here is another one. I wonder if you noticed that Paul's hair has become

:17:55.:18:05.

a bit dark. It is not artificial. It is a change

:18:06.:18:11.

in the lighting. Lane the lighting, that is right.

:18:12.:18:27.

Good night. Blame the engineers. EWLINE Christmas appears to have

:18:28.:18:30.

come early for the farmers in Lincolnshire who grow the fir trees

:18:31.:18:33.

that we decorate during December. Growers in the county say a shortage

:18:34.:18:36.

of the most popular trees, in mainland Europe, means more

:18:37.:18:39.

wholesalers are buying British. Simon Spark reports on the

:18:40.:18:43.

preparations for a busy month ahead. Christmas may still be over a month

:18:44.:18:47.

away, but already the orders are coming in to guarantee trees.

:18:48.:18:49.

Wholesalers are increasingly turning to British growers to fulfill their

:18:50.:18:52.

orders because of a continuing shortage of Nordman firs in mainland

:18:53.:18:58.

Europe. In Fillingham with 700,000 trees being grown, William Rose is

:18:59.:19:05.

in a good position to supply. Think there is possibly a national wide

:19:06.:19:12.

shortage, but we have be planting over the years just because we could

:19:13.:19:18.

see the shortage coming. And near Louth, it's the same. You

:19:19.:19:24.

can alter the wake of the machine. Here, ?80,000 pounds worth of the

:19:25.:19:27.

latest equipment is needed to ensure the trees are cut to meet demand.

:19:28.:19:31.

But, they'll need to buy in another 15,000 trees to meet their customer

:19:32.:19:40.

needs. Sales are looking very strong. Others are failing. We had a

:19:41.:19:45.

customer yesterday, from Southampton wanting a lorry load of trees,

:19:46.:19:52.

because his supplier of a decade is unable to fulfil his requirements.

:19:53.:19:54.

From sapling to centrepiece, it takes an average of eight years to

:19:55.:19:58.

grow the Christmas trees we have in our homes and eight million of them

:19:59.:20:05.

are bought in the UK every year. At Doddington Hall near Lincoln, they

:20:06.:20:08.

too grow their own, and sell the decorations that go with them. The

:20:09.:20:17.

demand for the trees is always there. People are treating

:20:18.:20:20.

themselves more to decorations and baubles, perhaps new light.

:20:21.:20:27.

So while we only begin to start thinking ahead to the festive

:20:28.:20:29.

season, timing and planning is everything to our Christmas tree

:20:30.:20:33.

growers ` and while the shortage continues elsewhere, fields like

:20:34.:20:50.

this will continue to grow. Lots of you have been in touch with

:20:51.:20:54.

us about the cost of using hospital car parks. Patients and visitors to

:20:55.:20:57.

hospitals in Northern Lincolnshire and Goole pay the most in our area.

:20:58.:21:01.

Managers say part of the money raised will go towards improving the

:21:02.:21:04.

car parks. Some people have now started leaving their cars down side

:21:05.:21:08.

streets to avoid paying. We've had a lot of response on this

:21:09.:21:12.

subject, including this one from the Reverend Ian Walker who used to be a

:21:13.:21:16.

chaplain for two`and`a`half years at Grimsby hospital.

:21:17.:21:59.

Bonfire celebrations and firework displays have been held across our

:22:00.:22:03.

area over the past few days. These are pictures from the big bonfire

:22:04.:22:07.

event at Heslam Park in Scunthorpe last night. Hundreds of people

:22:08.:22:10.

turned up at the home of Scunthorpe Rugby Club for the display.

:22:11.:22:16.

And you've been sending us pictures from your own displays, like this

:22:17.:22:19.

from Barry Pearce in Skellingthorpe near Lincoln. John Barber joined the

:22:20.:22:24.

crowds at the display on Beverley Westwood last night, and finally

:22:25.:22:27.

Terry Cumbers sent this image of sparklers in Grimsby. Thank you very

:22:28.:22:49.

much to all of you who got in touch. We'd like to invite you to come to

:22:50.:22:53.

our party for Children in Need. The fair for Pudsey with a mini fun fair

:22:54.:22:57.

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

:22:58.:23:05.

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

:23:06.:23:09.

book your free tickets through our reception in Hull. The number is

:23:10.:23:18.

there now on the screen. The Beautiful South, Mick Ronson and

:23:19.:23:21.

The Housemartins are just some of the artists from this area that have

:23:22.:23:25.

achieved musical success, but now local tribute acts are making their

:23:26.:23:29.

mark. Badness, The ELO Experience and Miss Madonna have all received

:23:30.:23:32.

recognition at The National Tribute Awards. Leanne Brown has been to see

:23:33.:23:48.

what's life is like on the road impersonating the stars.

:23:49.:23:50.

They've got thousands of fans and their gigs regularly sell out at

:23:51.:23:54.

venues arcos the UK. This is Badness from Hull. We base the show around

:23:55.:23:59.

the music, how good the music was and how catchy, and put the show

:24:00.:24:06.

across as ourselves, six lads from Hull.

:24:07.:24:12.

Although they do have their own unique style, this is the band

:24:13.:24:15.

they're paying tribute to ` Madness ` and you could say their life is

:24:16.:24:19.

equally as glamourous. This is their world famous tour bus. It is the

:24:20.:24:25.

original first ever purpose`built tour bus. It is carried a lot of

:24:26.:24:30.

stars over the years. Status quo, the wonder stuff, like ` ` black

:24:31.:24:37.

sabbath, the beastie boys. The band have been named the best

:24:38.:24:41.

Madness and ska band in the UK at the National Tribute Awards. Miss

:24:42.:24:44.

Madona from East Yorkshire was also recognised and The ELO experience

:24:45.:24:48.

from Hull. Whoever your favourite band is, there's a tribute.

:24:49.:24:59.

Organisers of Europe's biggest tribute festival say it's a great

:25:00.:25:05.

alternative. I think some of them are better than the real thing. One

:25:06.:25:10.

of the things today is the affordability. It costs a lot of

:25:11.:25:14.

money to see the bigger bands. You can probably see some of the top

:25:15.:25:19.

tribute bands for ?5 ?10, is great, and you get a really good show.

:25:20.:25:22.

Back on the tour bus, the outfits are ready for their gig on the south

:25:23.:25:27.

coast this weekend. These are the press cuttings the band has had in

:25:28.:25:32.

the papers over the years. These are the new suit. They still smell of

:25:33.:25:35.

newsprint. The band say they have no plans to

:25:36.:25:39.

give up the act. That would be pure madness.

:25:40.:25:49.

I wonder what it is about East Yorkshire getting on the tribute

:25:50.:25:55.

acts. Well done to them all. Let's get a recap of the national

:25:56.:26:02.
