this weekend. That's all, know your regional news.

:00:00.:00:14.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:15.:00:19.

Migrants aren't mixing ` the claims raised in a national television

:00:20.:00:21.

debate in Lincolnshire. They live separetly from ourselves. As a

:00:22.:00:25.

nation, we do not embrace them. We cannot have two societies living

:00:26.:00:28.

with each other, within one place, when they do not want to speak to

:00:29.:00:30.

each other. Big Mac to go ` why McDonald's is

:00:31.:00:40.

leaving Scunthorpe town centre. What does it say about Scunthorpe as a

:00:41.:00:45.

town? The plans by people in Cleethorpes

:00:46.:00:48.

to bring their Pier back to life. Two towns prepare for a Lincolnshire

:00:49.:00:51.

derby in the FA Cup. Memories of Mallard. This woman

:00:52.:00:55.

solves the mystery of one of the men in this 1930s photo.

:00:56.:01:06.

Join me for the weather. The issue of integrating Eastern

:01:07.:01:22.

European migrants in Boston is a major challenge. That's according to

:01:23.:01:26.

the leader of the Borough council, who says more work needs to be done.

:01:27.:01:30.

Members of the audience on the BBC's Question Time Programme, broadcast

:01:31.:01:32.

from the town last night, highlighted integration and not

:01:33.:01:35.

immigration as the root of Boston's problems. In a moment we'll be

:01:36.:01:39.

hearing from the council leader but first, Jake Zuckerman has this

:01:40.:01:45.

report. Millions tuned in last night as a Question Time panel, which

:01:46.:01:48.

included UKIP leader Nigel Farage, discussed migration and its impact

:01:49.:01:56.

on Boston. My family have lived in Boston for nearly 200 years. We have

:01:57.:02:03.

to fight for services that seem to get handed to newcomers on a plate.

:02:04.:02:07.

How can this be right? It's not right. It's completely unfair. It's

:02:08.:02:14.

wrong. This morning, this man who was in the audience gave his

:02:15.:02:17.

reaction. It provoked a very good debate. It was an even debate.

:02:18.:02:25.

Audience members raised issues about integration and the impact of

:02:26.:02:30.

migration on local infrastructure. Is it a question of immigration or

:02:31.:02:34.

integration that we have in this area? There seem to be so many of

:02:35.:02:41.

our foreign friends living in the area... But they live separately

:02:42.:02:44.

from ourselves. But this community worker says Eastern Europeans are

:02:45.:02:47.

trying hard to integrate. I think more time is needed. We are trying

:02:48.:02:51.

to do our best. When you know the language, it is easier. Lots of

:02:52.:03:07.

people are learning English. Here in the centre of Boston, Eastern

:03:08.:03:10.

European migrant communities are particularly visible. Speaking to

:03:11.:03:12.

passers by, many people clearly watched question Time last night.

:03:13.:03:22.

The issues are provoking impassioned debate. I thought it was quite good.

:03:23.:03:32.

Nigel Farage spoke a lot of good sense. When you get Europeans that

:03:33.:03:40.

will work for ?3 an hour, of course we're not going to do the same! We

:03:41.:03:44.

cannot have two societies living with each other, within one place,

:03:45.:03:47.

when they do not want to speak to each other. Last night's debate

:03:48.:03:51.

suggests that integration rather than migration is the largest

:03:52.:04:02.

problem that Boston faces. I've been speaking to the leader of Boston

:04:03.:04:06.

Borough Council and I asked him if he thinks the Question Time audience

:04:07.:04:09.

were right to point to integration as being the real issue in the town.

:04:10.:04:16.

No I don't. Boston Borough Council have been working very hard after

:04:17.:04:20.

the report, which has gained national recognition. The mayor of

:04:21.:04:27.

the year has been trying very hard to get the Eastern Europeans to

:04:28.:04:31.

actually get their menus and what they sell in the shops in English.

:04:32.:04:43.

But something is going wrong, isn't it? Our reporter spent half an hour

:04:44.:04:47.

on West Street earlier, which is full of Eastern European shops. Not

:04:48.:04:50.

one person would talk about this issue. Does that make you feel that

:04:51.:04:54.

migrants are included or excluded? It is a very difficult question. We

:04:55.:04:57.

are doing our best, through translators, to try to get all

:04:58.:05:04.

groups involved. We really want to do that. So what is going wrong?

:05:05.:05:08.

Where is the problem? As a borough, we are trying to get all rented

:05:09.:05:10.

accommodation in Boston, regardless of whether it is an HMO or not, we

:05:11.:05:18.

are trying to get it licensed. We will then know exactly who is in

:05:19.:05:29.

Boston. Then we will get closer to that step. You said to me in the

:05:30.:05:33.

summer that Boston possibly has 10,000 or more migrants than the

:05:34.:05:38.

official figures would suggest. How can you hope to integrate these

:05:39.:05:42.

people if you do not know who they are? Again, after the licensing has

:05:43.:05:46.

taken place, I am sure that we will be able to do more then. But it is

:05:47.:05:53.

difficult. They come in and are employed by farmers or gangmasters.

:05:54.:06:01.

They do not register as they do not have to. Finally, are you now at

:06:02.:06:07.

saturation point as far as Eastern Europeans are concerned in the town?

:06:08.:06:12.

Boston has got its fair share. Thank you. And immigration will be the big

:06:13.:06:32.

talking point on this weekend's Sunday Politics from 12.25pm on BBC

:06:33.:06:33.

One. Any moment, a dad is warning after

:06:34.:07:16.

as daughter's growing pain stunned out to be cancelled.

:07:17.:07:22.

We find them on most major shopping streets in the country, but the fast

:07:23.:07:27.

food chain McDonald's say they're pulling out of Scunthorpe town

:07:28.:07:30.

centre. The decision has been blamed on a change in shopping habits, but

:07:31.:07:34.

other traders in Scunthorpe say it's a serious blow to the local economy.

:07:35.:07:42.

Crispin Rolfe has more. Scunthorpe's high Street has been

:07:43.:07:45.

abandoned in favour of out of town retailing. McDonald's departure is a

:07:46.:07:55.

huge blow, according to these shop owners. What does it say about

:07:56.:08:04.

Scunthorpe as a town? The council should be doing more to regenerate

:08:05.:08:10.

the town. Others shops are flourishing. But all of the people

:08:11.:08:15.

means that shoppers are heading elsewhere. Sang Mack I go elsewhere.

:08:16.:08:29.

No one wants to be in the town centre. Hopefully more shots will

:08:30.:08:42.

comment. `` come in. Retailers say that this is an end of an era. I

:08:43.:08:54.

said two and a half years ago, that if you granted planning permission

:08:55.:09:00.

for a big retail Park that it would kill the town centre. I did not want

:09:01.:09:05.

to be read but I have been proved right. McDonald's will open for the

:09:06.:09:14.

last time on the 30th of November. Staff will be relocated to

:09:15.:09:17.

neighbouring outlets that will be no job losses. We want to hear your

:09:18.:09:41.

thoughts on this story. A memorial to those who have served

:09:42.:09:45.

in Hull's Merchant navy has been unveiled in the City. Veterans of

:09:46.:09:48.

both the Merchant and Royal Navies watched as the memorial was unveiled

:09:49.:09:53.

by Hull's mayor. They say having a separate memorial is important in

:09:54.:09:55.

recognising the city's maritime history. This is a statement.

:09:56.:10:02.

Anybody passing on the bus, or walking by, can obviously recognise

:10:03.:10:08.

it's a ship's bowel. We want them to come and read the plaques, and take

:10:09.:10:11.

more interest in the maritime history of this town. I couldn't

:10:12.:10:20.

understand why there wasn't one. When you look back, and think of all

:10:21.:10:24.

the trauma we went through... It was unbelievable.

:10:25.:10:33.

A father from Grimsby is urging all parents to look out for the signs of

:10:34.:10:37.

bone cancer in their children. Although survival rates for many

:10:38.:10:40.

cancers have doubled in the last 40 years, this isn't the case for bone

:10:41.:10:43.

cancer. Experts say this is because in too many cases the disease isn't

:10:44.:10:48.

diagnosed early enough. Tony Sutton, whose seven`year`old daughter Lucy

:10:49.:10:51.

has bone cancer, says it can be easily dismissed as growing pains.

:10:52.:10:59.

Jo Makel reports. As she runs around in the playground with her friends,

:11:00.:11:02.

seven`year`old Lucy Sutton looks healthy and happy. Her slight limp

:11:03.:11:06.

is the only sign that something is wrong. Two years ago, she had a pain

:11:07.:11:14.

in her leg. She was an active child and her parents naturally put it

:11:15.:11:17.

down as a normal ache or growing pain. But as Lucy explains, things

:11:18.:11:24.

changed. I was walking home from school and my leg just collapsed. I

:11:25.:11:31.

couldn't walk properly. We took her to the hospital and they did an

:11:32.:11:37.

x`ray. The symptoms came back that there was a tumour on her knee. It

:11:38.:11:45.

was the size of a golf ball. Since then, Lucy has had the tumour and

:11:46.:11:48.

part of her thigh bone removed. She is still having chemotherapy and has

:11:49.:11:52.

secondary cancer in her lungs. But her positive attitude has inspired

:11:53.:11:55.

her dad to try to raise awareness about bone cancer. A lot of the pain

:11:56.:12:00.

she had when she first started was during the night. Tony is giving

:12:01.:12:05.

talks to Lucy's teachers and others in the area. We are not here to

:12:06.:12:12.

scare people. This is far from it. Sometimes that ache or that pain,

:12:13.:12:16.

which 99% of the time is properly just a small injury, could be

:12:17.:12:26.

something different. The Bone Cancer Research Trust says there are around

:12:27.:12:30.

500 cases like this in the UK each year. It is working with GPs to help

:12:31.:12:36.

them spot the signs quickly. At the moment, there is no real reason why

:12:37.:12:42.

you might get bone cancer. It is really important that teachers,

:12:43.:12:44.

doctors and also young people are aware of this. As well as raising

:12:45.:12:52.

awareness, Lucy's family is raising money for the treatment to boost her

:12:53.:12:56.

immune system. They are determined to do all they can to help her and

:12:57.:13:01.

others. As for Lucy, she says she is simply too busy to be ill! Very good

:13:02.:13:16.

advice. Still ahead tonight: England's

:13:17.:13:19.

training session in Hull before facing Fiji in the Rugby League

:13:20.:13:25.

World Cup. And a 75`year`old mystery of the steam age is solved. Keep

:13:26.:13:47.

your photos coming end. Daniel Pattison who is 17 took this of

:13:48.:14:08.

Cleethorpes. It is a great picture. I have an a mild from somebody here.

:14:09.:14:13.

`` a mild. Sunday is going to be a very nice

:14:14.:14:32.

day of the week. The would`be lots of sunshine. As we go through the

:14:33.:14:44.

day, we are going to see high pressure building. A lot of cloud

:14:45.:14:57.

has pushed them from the south`west and it has brought cloud and rain.

:14:58.:15:06.

It will clear up eastwards. A dry and clear night. Perhaps a touch of

:15:07.:15:25.

ground frost. The maybe some pace. Tomorrow, it will be a fine start to

:15:26.:15:32.

the day. We may see some cloud spreading. The odd shower elsewhere.

:15:33.:15:42.

Generally speaking, a dry day. Most places are going to enjoy some

:15:43.:15:47.

bright and sunny spells. It may feel chilly. Temperatures below average.

:15:48.:15:56.

Six or seven degrees in places. Very cold overnight into Sunday.

:15:57.:16:02.

Temperatures into freezing. Plenty of sunshine. Wet and windy weather

:16:03.:16:10.

overnight into Monday. Temperatures will then recover to around 30

:16:11.:16:12.

degrees. `` 13 degrees. Cleethorpes pier is to be restored

:16:13.:16:38.

back to its victorian splendour in ambitious plans revealed today. As

:16:39.:16:40.

well as creating a multi`purpose ballroom, restaurant and cocktail

:16:41.:16:44.

bar, the pier could also host a boutique cinema. Caroline Bilton has

:16:45.:16:45.

been taking a look at the plans. bar, the pier could also host a

:16:46.:16:52.

boutique This is the vision. A restaurant, cocktail bar and tea

:16:53.:16:54.

room. Cleethorpes pier is to be given a new lease of life. This is

:16:55.:17:03.

the existing nightclub. It is very dark in here. The windows have been

:17:04.:17:13.

covered over. Part of the new plans mean opening all of that up. People

:17:14.:17:21.

dining will be able to see great view. This space is also going to be

:17:22.:17:26.

turned into a ballroom, transporting the pier back to its heyday when

:17:27.:17:29.

sequence dances and variety shows were a draw for seaside audiences.

:17:30.:17:36.

We would like to create additional entertainment. Lots of events. We

:17:37.:17:43.

would also offered it for weddings and many other things. At the

:17:44.:17:47.

moment, this iconic landmark is in the hands of a consortium of

:17:48.:17:50.

business people, but the long term plan is to put it back in the hands

:17:51.:17:58.

of the local community. I think it is very important that the community

:17:59.:18:02.

is involved. Ultimately, we would like the ownership to go to the

:18:03.:18:10.

community. So that the people can look after their own pier. After

:18:11.:18:16.

being closed for over a year, the pier is now open again for business.

:18:17.:18:20.

It's been fitted out with a new kitchen providing meals for this tea

:18:21.:18:23.

room. There is new life in this pier. All they need is planning

:18:24.:18:32.

permission. If that is granted entry to see this place return to its

:18:33.:18:39.

Victorian splendour within the year. We must support that. A reminder

:18:40.:18:50.

that we are just a week away from Children in Need. Here are the

:18:51.:18:56.

details. It'll be one of the biggest football

:18:57.:19:11.

matches in Lincolnshire for years. Scunthorpe United travel to

:19:12.:19:14.

neighbours Grimsby Town in FA Cup tomorrow in a fixture which normally

:19:15.:19:17.

generates a great deal of interest. Our sports reporter Simon Clark has

:19:18.:19:25.

more. All around, football teams are up for the cup. But will that be the

:19:26.:19:36.

case here? To find out the answer, I have engaged the help of this

:19:37.:19:46.

mascot. Like investigative journalists, we hit the streets.

:19:47.:20:01.

Grimsby are up for the cup! Are you going to score goals? Yes. It is a

:20:02.:20:12.

great opportunity. I hope they do well. What about Scunthorpe?

:20:13.:20:20.

Hopefully we will get some balloons up. Come on Scunthorpe! That award

:20:21.:20:33.

is enormous. A second round tie. This is high on the agenda. It is a

:20:34.:20:44.

big local derby. The lads are really looking forward to it. There is an

:20:45.:20:51.

edge to it. We want to progress to the second round. This game is very

:20:52.:20:59.

hard to call. But the mascot thinks it will be Grimsby Town's here. ``

:21:00.:21:12.

year. And you can hear commentary on that match with build up on BBC

:21:13.:21:15.

Radio Humberside. Grimsby v Scunthorpe kicks off at 1pm and

:21:16.:21:17.

there's commentary on all frequencies and online. Also in the

:21:18.:21:21.

first round of the FA Cup, Lincoln City are at home to Plymouth Argyle.

:21:22.:21:25.

Commentary from 2pm on BBC Radio Lincolnshire ` 94.9FM, 1368AM

:21:26.:21:28.

online and in the Premier League you can hear how Hull get on as they

:21:29.:21:32.

visit Southampton that's on FM and digital, kick off is at 3pm.

:21:33.:21:40.

And this weekend will also see a packed KC stadium for Hull's third

:21:41.:21:43.

Rugby League World Cup game. England will take on Fiji tomorrow and coach

:21:44.:21:47.

Steve McNamara says he's excited to be bringing the squad to his home

:21:48.:21:52.

city. But not as excited as a group of school children, who Leanne Brown

:21:53.:22:00.

has been to meet.. Studying the form of the England squad. These children

:22:01.:22:03.

from Cristopher Picerking Primary have been chosen to be mascots for

:22:04.:22:09.

the game. It is amazing. As soon as we found out, all of our families

:22:10.:22:13.

and the children... We were all in shock. They are over the moon. We

:22:14.:22:19.

have got lots of rugby fans, and a few budding rugby stars as well!

:22:20.:22:23.

Tomorrow, they will be walking out onto the pitch holding hands with

:22:24.:22:25.

their idols. Really excited. It means a lot to me. Is there a

:22:26.:22:30.

particular player you would like to walk out with? Either Tom Briscoe or

:22:31.:22:35.

Sam Tomkins. I'm really excited. It is a once`in`a`lifetime opportunity.

:22:36.:22:44.

Not many children get to do this. The team will be hoping for a repeat

:22:45.:22:48.

of last week's performance. England thrashed Ireland 42`0. During

:22:49.:22:54.

training at the KC Stadium today, Hull`born coach Steve McNamara said

:22:55.:22:57.

he was excited about bringing the squad to his home city. Not just

:22:58.:23:03.

myself, but the players as well, they really like playing here. They

:23:04.:23:06.

understand the support. It is tremendous. I'm excited about it.

:23:07.:23:16.

The fans can make a difference. Joining McNamara will be another

:23:17.:23:18.

familiar face. Hull FC's Tom Briscoe. And Olympic Gold medallist

:23:19.:23:23.

Luke Campbell will start the game by taking the trophy onto the pitch.

:23:24.:23:27.

25,000 fans will cheer on their national team!

:23:28.:23:38.

Seventy five years since Mallard broke the steam powered record near

:23:39.:23:40.

Grantham, another piece of her magical history has been revealed

:23:41.:23:48.

for the first time. Although records reveal who was the driver, the

:23:49.:23:51.

fireman and the inspector, there's been no record of who the guard was

:23:52.:24:06.

until now. Simon Spark reports. There is no question of Mallard's

:24:07.:24:14.

magnificence. When she wrote the record books in 1938, this

:24:15.:24:20.

photograph was taken. One Mr Lay remained. For many years we have

:24:21.:24:30.

known who many of these people were. But we did not know who regard was.

:24:31.:24:41.

Today, their guard's. Was invited to relive what her father achieved. I

:24:42.:24:51.

was only ten years old at the time. In 1938. Later on, I read about it.

:24:52.:25:02.

I read about Mallard. But nowhere was my father's name documented. I

:25:03.:25:11.

am overwhelmed. It is great to let everybody know who my father was.

:25:12.:25:20.

His name was Henry. Seen here on the right. These are the photographs to

:25:21.:25:30.

prove who he was. He got the whole thing started. That is all we

:25:31.:25:38.

somebody who counts things down. That would've been hemmed. `` would

:25:39.:25:53.

have been hemmed. Today, another part of Mallard's amazing history

:25:54.:26:04.

has been brought back to life. Fascinating. If you have a story you

:26:05.:26:18.

think we would like, then we want to hear from you. A Royal Marine is

:26:19.:26:30.

found guilty of murdering an Afghan man in cold blood. Top temperatures

:26:31.:26:53.

of eight Celsius for the weekend. Somebody here says they were

:26:54.:26:56.

unimpressed with the Boston audience on question Time last night. Lisa

:26:57.:27:13.

says that the councillors have mentioned that many of the

:27:14.:27:24.

immigrants are helpful. Tony says the immigration problem will never

:27:25.:27:29.

be fully solved. You cannot get people to speak their mind about

:27:30.:27:36.

what they really think. Brian says that in his experience and Eastern

:27:37.:27:39.

European stood a good job of integrating into our culture than we

:27:40.:27:43.

do abroad. Have a good weekend.
