us. Good evening. Welcome to Look North.

The headlines: As East Yorkshire waits for a decision on a breeding

:00:11.:00:14.

centre, one scientist says there is an alternative to animal testing.

:00:15.:00:18.

This is a great exciting breakthrough. We expect 90%

reduction in the use of animals in our research The typhoon in the fill

for tomorrow, but your detailed five`day forecast follows shortly

:01:04.:01:12.

Good evening. A leading Government scientist says his research could

:01:13.:01:19.

reduce the number of animals being used for medical testing by 90%.

:01:20.:01:24.

Professor Robin Williams has spent the last ten years investigating

:01:25.:01:29.

alternative methods. Tomorrow, East Riding council will decide whether

:01:30.:01:33.

to approve plans to extend a breeding centre in East Yorkshire

:01:34.:01:37.

where animals are reared for medical research. Our rural affairs

:01:38.:01:42.

correspondent, Linsay Smith, has this report. Epilepsy affecting 50

:01:43.:01:46.

million people worldwide. For the past ten years, it's the subject of

:01:47.:01:52.

Professor Williams' research. He's made breakthroughs in understanding

:01:53.:01:56.

which chemicals are control seizures, but arguably a bigger

:01:57.:02:01.

breakthrough is that his discoveries were not made tested on thousands of

:02:02.:02:07.

animals but these, social omeba, single cell organisms found on

:02:08.:02:11.

forest floors. This is a great, great exciting breakthrough. We

:02:12.:02:14.

expect potentially a 90% reduction in the use of animals in our

:02:15.:02:22.

research This discovery will tangibly help us make better, safer,

:02:23.:02:27.

more potent seizure`controlled treatments. Despite dramatically

:02:28.:02:31.

reducing the number of animals used in his research, Professor Williams

:02:32.:02:36.

says in the final stage tests, animals would still need to be

:02:37.:02:39.

included because the difference between Omeba and the human body is

:02:40.:02:45.

too big There's also a legal requirement in the UK for all new

:02:46.:02:50.

medicines to be tested on animals. It's something that's very important

:02:51.:02:53.

when you are asking a human to try a medicine for the first time on

:02:54.:02:56.

behalf of society to see whether that is safe and effective, to give

:02:57.:03:00.

them the knowledge that that has been tried in animals before it's

:03:01.:03:05.

been given straight to a human. Tomorrow, East Riding Council will

:03:06.:03:09.

decide whether to give planning per in addition a beagle breeding

:03:10.:03:13.

facility. This video from a company that promotes animal research shows

:03:14.:03:23.

the type of unit the company want to build. Animals are reared until

:03:24.:03:29.

required by animal research labs. Protests are expected at the

:03:30.:03:32.

meeting. Campaigners want a Government debate about the number

:03:33.:03:37.

of animals used, something Professor Williams says can be dramatically

:03:38.:03:42.

reduced. We need to change attitudes. The senior scientists and

:03:43.:03:47.

journalists need to be a bit more open minded about the approach to

:03:48.:03:54.

research and animal research at that. Wendy Jarrot is from

:03:55.:04:01.

Understanding Animal Research and is trying to increase awareness on

:04:02.:04:07.

research. Some scientists, are they stuck in their ways using animals

:04:08.:04:11.

too readily when they could be using other things? I don't think so. The

:04:12.:04:16.

law says you can't use an animal if there is a nonanimal alternative.

:04:17.:04:20.

You won't get a licence from the Home Office to do an animal study if

:04:21.:04:24.

there's a way to do it without using an animal. Do we have to accept if

:04:25.:04:29.

we want treatments, we are going to have to continue to use larger

:04:30.:04:34.

numbers of animals like beagles? We all hope we'll be able to reduce the

:04:35.:04:37.

animals and the research you have been talking about is very excising

:04:38.:04:41.

and a lot of research has already happened to develop alternatives to

:04:42.:04:45.

using animals in medical research. You work closely with a number of

:04:46.:04:50.

companies, including B K. Are you simply doing the PR for the

:04:51.:04:55.

pro`animal lobby on their behalf? Well, we are trying to help the

:04:56.:04:59.

public understand why animals are still needed in some cases in

:05:00.:05:04.

scientific and medical research. We are not trying to get people to

:05:05.:05:08.

approve of that. I think it's well accepted that people have mixed

:05:09.:05:13.

views on this subject, it's a very sensitive subject. In many cases,

:05:14.:05:17.

people just don't have the information to make up their own

:05:18.:05:19.

minds about the issue. That's what we are about, trying to help people

:05:20.:05:23.

understand it better. Can you understand why this issue is

:05:24.:05:31.

controversial, it's not that far removed from farming, which is what

:05:32.:05:34.

I was being told on the radio today? I can understand why it's a

:05:35.:05:39.

controversial issue and in many ways it's like farming, it's a way we as

:05:40.:05:43.

society have decided to use animals. I know a scientist who researches

:05:44.:05:48.

onle animals who is vegetarian, who won't wear leather, keep a pet,

:05:49.:05:52.

because he feels they are unnecessary uses of animals, whereas

:05:53.:05:57.

if we want medical progress and new medicines for humans and animals, we

:05:58.:06:01.

do need, unfortunately at the moment still, to use animals for research

:06:02.:06:08.

Thank you very much indeed As councillors prepare to decide on

:06:09.:06:11.

whether or not to grant permission for a larger breeding centre, how

:06:12.:06:15.

important is it for animals to be used in medical research? We'd like

:06:16.:06:18.

your thoughts on this one: That decision, the permission for

:06:19.:06:36.

the expansion of the breeding centre there is being made tomorrow. We'll

:06:37.:06:40.

let you know what happens and continue to follow that story. Look

:06:41.:06:44.

forward to hearing from you In a moment on the programme, how money

:06:45.:06:49.

raised by Children In Need is helping Paralympic athletes of the

:06:50.:06:55.

future The people of Hull will be at the forefront of its bid to become

:06:56.:06:59.

the UK City of Culture. Today, the team leading the bid has premiered a

:07:00.:07:05.

film that will be shown to the competition's judges on Thursday. In

:07:06.:07:08.

the audience was some of the hundreds of people who have starred

:07:09.:07:12.

in the film. They say that they're convinced it will help Hull win the

:07:13.:07:15.

City of Culture It took five weeks to make and stars

:07:16.:07:32.

thousands of people from Hull Including the actor, Sir Tom

:07:33.:07:36.

Courtney. Let me tell you something about this city. All of us were all

:07:37.:07:43.

just passing through and we have all been here forever. This film will

:07:44.:07:48.

open Hull's bid to become City of Culture 2017. The golden rules of

:07:49.:07:53.

Hull... Don't pretend you are something you are not. Don't think

:07:54.:07:57.

you are better than anyone else... Or that anyone is better than you...

:07:58.:08:01.

Don't shout about it, get on with it.

:08:02.:08:04.

ALL: We are Hull. Hull. Its producers hopes it will have a real

:08:05.:08:08.

impact on the judges. The rest of it is dry facts and figures. It's about

:08:09.:08:13.

buildings and capacity and economic development. But this is really

:08:14.:08:17.

about people and this is really saying this is a great city with

:08:18.:08:21.

fantastic people and it's a brilliant place to be. If they get

:08:22.:08:25.

that, then yes, it would be great to think that that makes a contribution

:08:26.:08:30.

At the premier, those who star in the film, including trinity House

:08:31.:08:35.

brethren, Phillip watts and schoolgirl Ruby Stevenson. Felt

:08:36.:08:39.

quite emotional because it's like, you have lived here alyour life and

:08:40.:08:43.

it makes you really proud. Very pleased and proud to represent the

:08:44.:08:49.

city en mass and to put it in a good light. It gets far too much bad

:08:50.:08:55.

press, does Hull. This city belongs to everyone. And you know when it's

:08:56.:09:00.

your turn. And it's our time. Listen. We are Hull The film also

:09:01.:09:07.

features David who runs a shop and arts projects in the city. Hull's

:09:08.:09:13.

always had a stigma with, you know, unemployment, but with the arts, we

:09:14.:09:18.

have always been rich in that area. I've noticed dance, drama, all the

:09:19.:09:22.

arts, Hull's always been rich like that. It will be good for Hull We

:09:23.:09:31.

are all visitors and we have all been here forever. The film has been

:09:32.:09:37.

screened all day at the art gallery, showing people in Hull what the

:09:38.:09:52.

judges will see of them . Hull! Hull! Hull! Say yes to Hull! Say yes

:09:53.:10:05.

to freedom It really is a good film, you must see it. Ann`Marie is in

:10:06.:10:09.

Hull at the moment. How important is this film to the bid then? Well,

:10:10.:10:17.

Peter, it's the very first thing the City of Culture judges would see.

:10:18.:10:20.

It's certainly got people talking already since it was launched this

:10:21.:10:24.

morning. It's had over a thousand views online. One of the people

:10:25.:10:27.

who'll show it to the judges is Mark, the artistic director at the

:10:28.:10:31.

theatre, he's part of the delegation that's going to see the judges in

:10:32.:10:34.

Londonderry. Mark, how important is this video to the bid? I find it an

:10:35.:10:42.

incredibly moving piece of work. This fantastic city is behind this

:10:43.:10:48.

bid, wants it, needs it and it's a great testament that Hull is ready

:10:49.:10:54.

to deliver. It gives you a chance to take the people with you? That's

:10:55.:10:58.

important for us. In the consultation period there was over

:10:59.:11:02.

200 consultations putting the bid together and the voice of the people

:11:03.:11:07.

were smack back in the middle of the bid `` smack bang. It's a testament

:11:08.:11:11.

of the meaning of Hull and what we can achieve. Thank you very much. It

:11:12.:11:14.

would be right on this very spot that we'll find out next Wednesday

:11:15.:11:18.

if that video and the bid as a whole has won it for Hull Thank you very

:11:19.:11:23.

much. Next Wednesday is the day and, by the way, you can read more about

:11:24.:11:30.

the city's bid and also see the video in full online if you go to

:11:31.:11:32.

the website. I had an interview with Ed vasy, the

:11:33.:11:54.

Culture Minister, yesterday, and a couple of the many messages that

:11:55.:11:56.

came through to us: Thank you very much. We'll continue

:11:57.:12:29.

to follow the story A mother from Hull who admitted killing her baby

:12:30.:12:33.

while suffering from postnatal depression, has avoided jail

:12:34.:12:41.

21`year`old Natasha Sultan was given a three`year supervision order and

:12:42.:12:48.

banned from working with children She pleaded guilty. The court heard

:12:49.:12:53.

the baby died from a head injury A restaurant in Hull has been named

:12:54.:12:58.

the best in Yorkshire The winner is... 1884... 1884 Dock Street Kym

:12:59.:13:14.

un only been open 18 months `` Dock Street Kitchen. I cook for customers

:13:15.:13:21.

:13:22.:13:25.

We are a young business, a young team, everyone tries really hard, we

:13:26.:13:28.

cook seasonally, regionally, locally. Well done to them. The

:13:29.:13:33.

Bridlington Spa only pickd up an award, winning best business tourism

:13:34.:13:39.

award. The visitor centre at the Humber Bridge was highly commended

:13:40.:13:44.

as well. Well done to all three. Filipino crew members at the port of

:13:45.:13:48.

Hull are still waiting to hear if their families are safe in the

:13:49.:13:51.

aftermath of last Friday's typhoon. Four are from the areas where

:13:52.:13:56.

thousands have been left homeless. The storm which struck on Friday is

:13:57.:13:59.

thought to have killed 10,000. Today, the crew from P Ferries,

:14:00.:14:07.

Pride of Rotterdam, spoke to us, about their fears. Half a world away

:14:08.:14:13.

and too far from home. From a ferry in Hull, the family struck by the

:14:14.:14:25.

typhoon which wrought destruction We are very angry and thirsty. Little

:14:26.:14:29.

comfort to these four waiting to hear of friends and family. My

:14:30.:14:38.

brother lives in Leyte. It's a problem because I hear that

:14:39.:14:46.

everything is devastated. They just live near the coast, you know, so

:14:47.:14:50.

I'm worried. There is no communication from my mother and

:14:51.:14:57.

father. It doesn't work. There is no electricity. We are collecting

:14:58.:15:08.

Closing Ceremonies to donate to the victims of the typhoon 80 Filipinos

:15:09.:15:15.

work on board the Pride of Rotterdam, most earnings going home,

:15:16.:15:20.

but charity is also now welcome We are thankful to the Government and

:15:21.:15:25.

the people of England that they donated ?10 million Getting aid

:15:26.:15:32.

direct to the survivors is an aim shared by the Filipino community.

:15:33.:15:38.

Tomorrow, the seafarers centre is hold prayers. We have a lot of

:15:39.:15:44.

seafarers come here and Grimsby. 65% of them in fact are from the

:15:45.:15:50.

Philippines Back on board Hull's Pride of Rotterdam, another

:15:51.:15:56.

overnight sailing awaits. Work will be a welcome distraction for those

:15:57.:16:00.

affected. Sometimes you wake in the middle of the night and just, you

:16:01.:16:09.

know, everything's all in chaos. I'm here and I can do nothing. For all,

:16:10.:16:17.

news can't come fast enough Thank you for watchingings Still ahead:

:16:18.:16:25.

Jew Dee provided loost year's unsung sporting hero. In a moment, we'll

:16:26.:16:29.

find out who has won this year's award. The yellow lines which have

:16:30.:16:32.

to be repainted because they are the wrong shade of yellow

:16:33.:16:39.

Let's get forecast. Paul is here. Good evening. Thank you very much.

:16:40.:16:55.

It certainly was a beautiful day today. Looks like a very similar day

:16:56.:17:00.

to come tomorrow with mainly sunny skies. A real tonic for this time of

:17:01.:17:05.

the year. Apart from some rain to come late tomorrow evening, it

:17:06.:17:09.

should be a mostly fine day. High pressure in charge. This weather

:17:10.:17:12.

front will bring some rain in from the west late tomorrow evening into

:17:13.:17:16.

tomorrow night and should clear in time to leave us with a mostly fine

:17:17.:17:22.

day on Thursday. You can see lots of clear weather right now. This

:17:23.:17:30.

evening will be clear and it's been breezy today. That wind will slowly

:17:31.:17:40.

ease Could be a widespread ground frost, temperatures generally

:17:41.:17:43.

between one and four. A lovely start to the day tomorrow.

:17:44.:18:00.

As by crisp in places, but lots of sunshine. Apart from some fair

:18:01.:18:04.

weather cloud, it's dry and bright with some good spells of sunshine

:18:05.:18:08.

There is the weather front that will bring some rain but not until after

:18:09.:18:12.

dark. Later tomorrow, it turns wet for the rest Top temperatures not

:18:13.:18:19.

far from normal for this time of the year.

:18:20.:18:25.

Wednesday night there'll be some rain at times. A bit of a damp start

:18:26.:18:31.

on Thursday morning, otherwise dry and sunny with a fresh

:18:32.:18:42.

north`westerly. You had a night off last night didn't you, but I dropped

:18:43.:18:46.

you right in it I'm not sad enough to watch on a day off! I have a

:18:47.:18:52.

question for you. A viewer says either my cat likes Peter very much

:18:53.:18:58.

or Peter smells of chicken! Classic photo All sorts of replies going

:18:59.:19:04.

through my mind. No, no, no! I'll say what a pretty picture! Think of

:19:05.:19:12.

the mortgage repayments! Money raised for Children In Need could

:19:13.:19:15.

help more paralympian athletes in Lincolnshire. The county's sports

:19:16.:19:19.

partnership has just bought two racing wheelchairs with the money

:19:20.:19:22.

from the charity It's hoped youngsters will be inspired by Jamie

:19:23.:19:28.

Carter who competed in the London 2012. Welcome to the world of power

:19:29.:19:38.

chair footie. At this new group in Lincoln, youngsters are refining

:19:39.:19:46.

their ball skills. The hope is one day they'll be as good as this guy,

:19:47.:19:50.

Charlie plays for the England team. A lot of able`bodied people with

:19:51.:19:56.

play football. This brings in all disabilities and everyone can get

:19:57.:19:59.

involved in the sport at a basic or high level. It's brilliant for

:20:00.:20:03.

everyone. It's not just power chair. The Lincolnshire sports partnership

:20:04.:20:07.

also trains people in wheelchair racing. It's a real hard sport. It's

:20:08.:20:14.

really hard to explain. The wheelchairs are light so you can't

:20:15.:20:18.

lean backwards otherwise you will fall over. You need speed and air

:20:19.:20:24.

resistance. I have cerebral palsy. I'm very competitive so in a sport

:20:25.:20:29.

like this, like wheelchair sport, it gives me a chance to get up there

:20:30.:20:32.

with the best. They are getting a special coaching session today Jamie

:20:33.:20:39.

Carter competed at the London Paralympics. When I started, I found

:20:40.:20:44.

wheelchair racing the hardest sport to get into. There's nowhere in

:20:45.:20:49.

Lincolnshire like this so to have these chairs, for the kids to be

:20:50.:20:53.

able to come down and have a go, it's great. These two new racing

:20:54.:20:58.

chairs and specialist gloves are here thanks to money donated to

:20:59.:21:03.

Children In Need One of the choirs now could turn one of the kids into

:21:04.:21:07.

a future paralympian. The children, because they don't get the chance to

:21:08.:21:11.

do this, they don't even know that, depending on their level of

:21:12.:21:14.

disability, they could be a world champion in the making now. Time to

:21:15.:21:15.

put the new wheels to the test Children In Need is on Friday. Last

:21:16.:21:31.

year, it was a pair of judo coaches, this year a different sport is being

:21:32.:21:36.

recognised for the unsung hero for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The

:21:37.:21:52.

judging panel including lots of sporting heroes He's funny. Gives a

:21:53.:21:58.

bit of discipline. Wants you to get really good at basketball. They

:21:59.:22:07.

teach really good. Quite funny. The best coach I've ever had. They are

:22:08.:22:11.

young people from a primary school in Hull and they love basketball.

:22:12.:22:17.

Land, focus and miss again! They were introduced to the sport by Neil

:22:18.:22:24.

Kelsey, he's spent decades on court volunteering his time for his sport.

:22:25.:22:27.

It's for this he's been nominated as East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire's

:22:28.:22:35.

unsung hero for 2013. . I guarantee Neil is out there some time all the

:22:36.:22:40.

time coaching somebody to play bass debt ball. That's why I nominated

:22:41.:22:45.

him `` basketball. Neil's also raised thousands of pounds, setting

:22:46.:22:50.

up his disability club, Stingers in Motion, for example, cost ?18,000

:22:51.:22:55.

for the wheelchairs alone. This year, the judges desclaired Neil

:22:56.:23:01.

Kelsey the winner There are so many talented kids in this city and

:23:02.:23:06.

region that don't ever get seen if they don't play rugby or football or

:23:07.:23:11.

whatever. It's really rewarding when you see these. You have seen how

:23:12.:23:15.

talented some of them are at seven and eight years of age. That's why

:23:16.:23:21.

I'm still doing it I never played basketball before I came to this

:23:22.:23:25.

school, I could barely bounce a ball, but I've got better. Really

:23:26.:23:30.

happy because he's a really good coach. He does give a bit of

:23:31.:23:36.

discipline, but that's just to make us better basketball players Apart

:23:37.:23:42.

from winning the trophy, Neil gets a night out at the BBC Sports

:23:43.:23:49.

personality of the year event Hull city owners say the club could be

:23:50.:23:53.

known as the Hull Tigers before the start of next season. The owner met

:23:54.:24:00.

with the fans to hear why they oppose the change. Today, he said he

:24:01.:24:07.

preferred the name Hull Tigers? Yes, nothing will change no matter what

:24:08.:24:14.

they say. Look, they can sing City until they die as much as they like.

:24:15.:24:18.

First it was the bakers shop which was the wrong colour, now people in
