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

:00:00.:00:09.

City of Culture hopes are in the hands of the judges now the bid team

:00:10.:00:19.

has finished its final presentation. I hope we did the city proud. I

:00:20.:00:23.

believe we did the city proud. We are now waiting for the decision

:00:24.:00:28.

next week. No drop in crime but ?2 million

:00:29.:00:31.

saved ` the police commissioner defending his first year in charge.

:00:32.:00:35.

The play showing the role East Yorkshire played in saving thousands

:00:36.:00:39.

of children in World War II. And lighting up the city ` Hull

:00:40.:00:42.

prepares to have it's Christmas Lights switched on by a very special

:00:43.:00:54.

guest. At cold day, what will the next few days be like? Join me to

:00:55.:00:57.

find out. "We believe we did the city proud."

:00:58.:01:06.

That's the verdict of Hull's bidding team after they made their final

:01:07.:01:09.

presentation to the judges in the race to be UK City of Culture 2017.

:01:10.:01:18.

Hull hopes its mix of festivals, a vibrant cultural scene and support

:01:19.:01:22.

from local people will be enough to beat challenges from Leicester,

:01:23.:01:24.

Dundee and Swansea Bay. Paul Murphy is in Londonderry, where today's

:01:25.:01:35.

judging is taking place. From early this morning, members from the Hull

:01:36.:01:40.

2017 teams where pounding the streets of Derry, publicising their

:01:41.:01:48.

bid. The flag had on it more than 200 images of schoolchildren from

:01:49.:01:54.

Hull. We wanted to show the judges that children and young people are

:01:55.:02:05.

an important part of this legacy. Across town, what is known as the

:02:06.:02:11.

court beaten team were heading towards the big presentation. ` `

:02:12.:02:20.

core bid team. There will be a full 365 days of activities, 25

:02:21.:02:30.

festivals, existing ones as well as new ones celebrating culture,

:02:31.:02:33.

diversity and the city's relationship with the sea. 12

:02:34.:02:37.

artists will be matched with 12 locations. Arts will be brought to

:02:38.:02:42.

people 's homes, and into some of the iconic landmarks of the city.

:02:43.:02:47.

There have been friendly rivalry between the bidding cities, but

:02:48.:02:50.

don't let that full view. This is a serious process with ultimately

:02:51.:02:54.

impound implications for each community. Here, many will tell you

:02:55.:03:01.

it can make a real difference. It has brought everybody together,

:03:02.:03:04.

which hasn't happened in a long, long time I have really enjoyed it.

:03:05.:03:15.

It is on the map now, so it is. Late this afternoon, the team emerged.

:03:16.:03:21.

All smiles. It has gone well, apparently. You always get some sign

:03:22.:03:27.

from judges of how they feel. We felt that they got what Hull had to

:03:28.:03:34.

offer, but not just what it has to offer for the people in Hull, but

:03:35.:03:41.

the UK also. The team and the entire city of Hull now faces a six`day

:03:42.:03:45.

wait for the judges decision. It may feel a lot longer.

:03:46.:03:54.

I'm now joined from Derry by Councillor Stephen Bayes who was one

:03:55.:03:58.

of the members of the bid team that made today's presentation. How did

:03:59.:04:03.

it go? Good evening. It went well. It wasn't the easiest two hours, but

:04:04.:04:08.

it went well, I think. If the judges give anything away you can tell

:04:09.:04:14.

others about? Well, no. They make the view that it was very important

:04:15.:04:21.

and they were going to make the interview is very hard, so we had

:04:22.:04:26.

some tough questioning. We enjoyed it and we hope we get the right

:04:27.:04:31.

answers. 41,000 people have seen the film here. What did the judges say

:04:32.:04:36.

when they saw the film? Well, it is a bit like a job interview, and you

:04:37.:04:40.

cannot really tell what they are thinking. We will find out next

:04:41.:04:44.

week. Everybody who has seen the film thinks it is wonderful, cannot

:04:45.:04:48.

see why the judges would not think the same. You think you have done

:04:49.:04:53.

enough to win? We have two hope so. It is a huge price to get and the

:04:54.:04:59.

city deserves it. Winning would be fantastic. What would it mean in

:05:00.:05:04.

reality for those offers that live in the city? Well, it is about

:05:05.:05:11.

change. We're trying to change the image of the city, show what can be

:05:12.:05:14.

done and try to create new things in the city. It is a big thing, huge

:05:15.:05:27.

thing. Similar things have changed in Liverpool and Glasgow. It is a

:05:28.:05:30.

massive opportunity. If we lose, what happens then? Will we give up?

:05:31.:05:36.

We didn't give up last time. We will not this time. We will continue the

:05:37.:05:41.

process. It will be a slower pace, but it is a journey we will

:05:42.:05:45.

continue. If you were a betting man, have we done it, yes or no? I am not

:05:46.:05:52.

a betting man. If you work? I am not. There are good to talk to you.

:05:53.:05:57.

What would you say to try and persuade the judges to make Hull the

:05:58.:05:59.

UK City of Culture for 2017? A 15`year`old boy who was killed

:06:00.:06:37.

after being hit by a car in Barton on Humber has been described as "a

:06:38.:06:40.

popular young man with a bright future." Koen Allwood was killed and

:06:41.:06:43.

a teenage girl seriously injured during the accident last night. Two

:06:44.:06:51.

men have been arrested. Sarah Corker reports. ?? new line A wonderful and

:06:52.:07:02.

lovely boy is how friends remembered Koen Allwood today. Tributes were

:07:03.:07:06.

laid for the teenager today ` hit and killed by a car on this quiet

:07:07.:07:10.

residental road. A note from his mother reads, "Koen, please come

:07:11.:07:13.

back." It is an absolute tragic waste of life. 215`year`olds, the

:07:14.:07:21.

beginning of adult hood, basically. It is tragic. ` ` to two

:07:22.:07:45.

15`year`olds. A 15`year`old girl remains in a

:07:46.:07:48.

critical condition in hospital. Those at Koen's school in Barton

:07:49.:07:52.

said they were in a state of shock today. Kasha Reed told me she was

:07:53.:07:56.

the first person at the scene, and called the ambulance. It was about

:07:57.:07:59.

11 o'clock and I had a big bang. We saw a body in the road. We did not

:08:00.:08:05.

know their way to. It is shocking. They don't care how fast they drive

:08:06.:08:09.

down here. Something needs doing about the corner.

:08:10.:08:11.

Two 23`year`old men have been arrested, held on suspicion of

:08:12.:08:16.

causing death by dangerous driving. Police are now piecing together how

:08:17.:08:19.

this much loved teenager died crossing the road.

:08:20.:08:27.

It's been a year since the election of the first police and crime

:08:28.:08:30.

commisioners and BBC research suggests that most people couldn't

:08:31.:08:33.

name their own PCC. It also says that a majority of people think the

:08:34.:08:37.

new role hasn't helped to reduce crime. Matthew Grove won a high

:08:38.:08:44.

profile race against Lord Prescott in the Humberside area. He says he's

:08:45.:08:48.

spent a huge amount of time getting out to meet people and has brought

:08:49.:08:52.

in measures that keep police on the streets. Phillip Norton reports.

:08:53.:09:02.

Meeting the public at a shopping centre in Hull, and there is no

:09:03.:09:06.

shortage of people telling Matthew Grove al policing can be improved.

:09:07.:09:12.

He seemed to listen to what I said, and he seems clean and interested in

:09:13.:09:18.

what others say. I think the man is right in what people say. More

:09:19.:09:25.

coppers on the big would help. You see them on television but you don't

:09:26.:09:30.

see him out and about much. It is nice. Matthew Grove claims to be the

:09:31.:09:39.

most accessible police and crime commission in the country. I am very

:09:40.:09:45.

visible. They know my name and they know I am their servant. I am there

:09:46.:09:50.

to fight for their interests. That is why I am out, places like this,

:09:51.:09:55.

pretty well every week, because I am their servant and I am driven to do

:09:56.:10:00.

everything I can to make the area as safe as it can be. According to a

:10:01.:10:04.

study, more than a third of people don't even know if they have a PCC.

:10:05.:10:10.

Research carried out by the BBC says 60% of their people are aware that

:10:11.:10:14.

the area has a police and crime commission. In the North, 65% of

:10:15.:10:23.

people were aware and 5% could name him. 41% thought the role has had a

:10:24.:10:31.

positive impact on general policing. Matthew Grove took the position

:10:32.:10:35.

thanks to a high`profile victory over Lord Prescott. He has been in

:10:36.:10:39.

the headlines after a couple of embarrassing motoring offences by

:10:40.:10:46.

his deputy, Paul Robinson. His focus is on making police budgets stretch

:10:47.:10:52.

further. He has introduced new IT for offices based in Cottingham, so

:10:53.:10:59.

they can file crime reports from a scene rather than returning to a

:11:00.:11:05.

police station. It has allowed me to stay out from the station and be

:11:06.:11:10.

more accessible and visible to the community. They get an extra one or

:11:11.:11:19.

two hours out on patrol every shift. We have three shifts that that is up

:11:20.:11:25.

to six hours a day. It is equivalent to finding an extra 200 book 400

:11:26.:11:32.

police officers, at no extra cost. He fears he has already helped to

:11:33.:11:35.

save millions of pounds thanks to other measures he has introduced. He

:11:36.:11:39.

promises there is more to come. In a moment I'll speak to Matthew

:11:40.:11:43.

Grove, but first we've been seeing how well local people know him.

:11:44.:11:56.

Matthew Grove. He is a person. Who is it? I do not know. I have never

:11:57.:12:01.

heard of him. I have never heard of it. I know he is something to do

:12:02.:12:05.

with the police. I don't know who he is. He employed his friend, which I

:12:06.:12:11.

disagree with. I would have thought he was a politician. I know he is to

:12:12.:12:17.

do the place. Was he suspended or something? Well, Matthew Grove is

:12:18.:12:25.

with me now. A lot of people do not know you. Is that awkward? I

:12:26.:12:31.

represent a lot of people and it is difficult to know them all. I am

:12:32.:12:38.

doing my best. Yes, but they don't know you. Enthusiasm for the

:12:39.:12:42.

commissioners seems to be underwhelming. I think it is like

:12:43.:12:47.

being a football referee. If you do not do a good job, they know your

:12:48.:12:52.

name. Figures show your office cost more than the old police authority,

:12:53.:12:57.

and crime figures have gone up. It has cost ?200,000 less than the old

:12:58.:13:07.

system. I have made decisions. You have one of the highest areas for

:13:08.:13:16.

staff, 14 members of staff. Statistics can say anything. I am

:13:17.:13:22.

?187,000 cheaper than the former police authority. You have 14

:13:23.:13:33.

members of staff. North Yorkshire has got six. I inherited them. I am

:13:34.:13:39.

go through stage to transfer where I am rectifying that situation. Some

:13:40.:13:44.

of those I going? I will further reduce the costs. The number of

:13:45.:13:49.

people in your office will be less? This is being made to reduce my

:13:50.:13:55.

costs. I am selling my building because I inherited a very grand,

:13:56.:14:00.

expensive building. That costs ?50,000 a year to run. It will be a

:14:01.:14:06.

lot cheaper. All right. You're pointed deputy with no police

:14:07.:14:09.

experience who has been caught speeding and talking on his mobile

:14:10.:14:12.

phone when driving. Is that the right example for a Deputy police

:14:13.:14:18.

Commissioner to set? No, it is not. That is why he has apologised. I

:14:19.:14:24.

took him on for a specific role, to push forward partnership

:14:25.:14:28.

arrangements. He is working for me now and he is delivering some

:14:29.:14:32.

improvements that mean we will cut crime. I cannot be everywhere at

:14:33.:14:41.

once. He is in London at an important events. I spoke to the

:14:42.:14:47.

Commissioner for the West Midlands today. He said that PCC 's should be

:14:48.:14:55.

scrapped. That is one of your fellow commissioners. It is a very

:14:56.:15:01.

eccentric point of view to take. I am saying he is a hypocrite. He is

:15:02.:15:06.

taking ?100,000 a year and saying he is not in a very good job. I am

:15:07.:15:10.

interested in what the public of this area thing, not what somebody

:15:11.:15:15.

in the West Midlands might think. I am working very hard, up to 70 hours

:15:16.:15:20.

a week to deliver for the people of this area, to reduce the cost of

:15:21.:15:25.

their policing service. What do you have to do so that this time next

:15:26.:15:29.

year, people know who you are and like commissioners? I will carry on

:15:30.:15:36.

doing what I am doing now, which is to be out there and talking to the

:15:37.:15:39.

public, and delivering my promises to them. To improve policing and the

:15:40.:15:48.

criminal justice system. In a word, where commissioners are good idea? I

:15:49.:15:53.

think they are a fantastic idea and it should be expanded into the

:15:54.:15:58.

health service, to have a representative who can cut through

:15:59.:16:02.

the bureaucracy and deliver on what people want. Commissioner, thank you

:16:03.:16:04.

for coming in. Last night I spoke to the

:16:05.:16:07.

Lincolnshire PCC Alan Hardwick. Here's what you had to say about his

:16:08.:16:10.

year in the job. Still ahead tonight: The new play

:16:11.:16:53.

celebrating the part East Yorkshire played in saving thousands of

:16:54.:16:59.

children in the Second World War. And she's lit up the city for years

:17:00.:17:03.

` but we'll see the Bee Lady fulfil a lifetime ambition by switching

:17:04.:17:05.

Hull's Christmas lights. Humber Dock in Hull sent in by Alan

:17:06.:17:33.

Houghton. How are you? Very well. Somebody has been in

:17:34.:17:36.

touch saying he lives in Brisbane, and he watches as every night.

:17:37.:17:44.

Do you think he needs to get a life? I was just wondering that. He might

:17:45.:17:49.

want to have another barbecue. Don't get is into trouble tonight.

:17:50.:17:53.

It looks as though we have a chilly night to come. Tomorrow is set to be

:17:54.:18:02.

fine with some sunshine. It looks like fine weather to come this

:18:03.:18:06.

weekend. The risk of some patchy rain on Sunday. The risk of wintry

:18:07.:18:12.

showers next week, especially towards the coast. It has been

:18:13.:18:18.

called today. There has been plenty of sunshine. Just the odd shower

:18:19.:18:26.

scraping in. They will move offshore pretty sharpish. Bit of clarity and

:18:27.:18:35.

there. North`westerly will lead down. There will be a fairly

:18:36.:18:58.

widespread ground Frost. A frosty start with the largely Sunni start.

:18:59.:19:04.

There will be plenty of sunshine around. There could be some high

:19:05.:19:11.

cloud around later. It is a fine day and there will be much less wind as

:19:12.:19:16.

well so it should feel a little bit less cold. Saturday looks dry with

:19:17.:19:28.

sunny spells. More cloud and the risk of patchy rain, although there

:19:29.:19:34.

is some uncertainty. Showers may tend to sleep and snow. That's the

:19:35.:19:38.

forecast. I thought you wouldn't pass passout

:19:39.:19:50.

during that. ` ` I thought you were going to pass out during that. It's

:19:51.:19:55.

been 75 years since the first evacuation of Jewish children from

:19:56.:19:58.

Nazi Germany to Britain, and today their story was told in a special

:19:59.:20:02.

play performed on the platforms of Hull's Paragon Station. "Suitcase"

:20:03.:20:04.

tells how thousands of children were bought to the UK and placed with

:20:05.:20:07.

foster families. Some never saw their parents again. Caroline Bilton

:20:08.:20:20.

reports. It was a rescue operation on a

:20:21.:20:22.

massive scale. 10,000 Jewish children were placed on trains and

:20:23.:20:26.

brought to England to be placed with foster families across the country.

:20:27.:20:33.

I have been practising my German. Today, their story was told in this

:20:34.:20:36.

play performed at Hull's Paragon Station, and among the audience were

:20:37.:20:40.

those who were there for real back in 1939. They said we had to forget

:20:41.:20:48.

our language because we were not going back there. We couldn't speak

:20:49.:20:53.

to one another, not even outside. We tried to occasionally, but we had to

:20:54.:20:58.

try and forget the language altogether. Dina LeBoutiller has

:20:59.:21:00.

never told her story till now. Her new life in England wasn't a happy

:21:01.:21:08.

one. We were not the children they expected, and they didn't letters

:21:09.:21:13.

forget that. My brother and myself thought it was a cheap way of

:21:14.:21:18.

getting help, because we did all the chores in the house as well as going

:21:19.:21:24.

to school. If we did anything wrong, we got the King of the whip, or

:21:25.:21:39.

about. `` cane or the whip, or a belt.

:21:40.:21:40.

For some children, leaving this persecution behind and coming to

:21:41.:21:44.

England was a chance for a new beginning. Bob Rosner came to Hull

:21:45.:21:47.

from Vienna and was taken in by Leo Shultz ` the man who would later

:21:48.:21:52.

become Hull's mayor. Bob is sadly no longer here to tell his story, so

:21:53.:21:55.

it's now told by his wife, Olive. He didn't want to go back. All he could

:21:56.:21:58.

remember was abuse in the street, being spat at, being kicked. Here,

:21:59.:22:00.

everybody was friendly. Bob went on to become a successful

:22:01.:22:03.

architect, designing buildings in this region like Dove House Hospice

:22:04.:22:07.

` a life Bob felt he would have never have had without the

:22:08.:22:14.

genorosity of Leo Shultz. Bob used to say he would be in a pit of ash,

:22:15.:22:18.

and that he gave him everything, he gave him life. I feel grateful to

:22:19.:22:25.

Britain for letting me come to England, because if it hadn't been

:22:26.:22:29.

for that, I wouldn't be here. 75 years on, that generosity is now

:22:30.:22:32.

being remembered on the station platforms where their new lives

:22:33.:22:36.

began. Archaeologists in Lincoln have had

:22:37.:22:39.

the first glimpse of a skeleton that's been buried under the city's

:22:40.:22:46.

castle for centuries. The remains of a church and eight skeletons were

:22:47.:22:49.

discovered earlier this year. One set of remains, buried in a lime

:22:50.:22:53.

stone coffin, were finally uncovered today. The skeleton had leather

:22:54.:22:55.

boots on and it's thought it could be a Saxon King or Bishop. It has

:22:56.:22:59.

now been scanned and is being removed by archaeologists. This is

:23:00.:23:11.

unique in this country. Not only has it been difficult logistically, it

:23:12.:23:18.

has been something so in usual that the archaeologist who found in the

:23:19.:23:22.

first place, we will never find anything that this again. Big find

:23:23.:23:27.

there. It's Children In Need day tomorrow

:23:28.:23:30.

and we'd like to know what you're doing and of course would like to

:23:31.:23:36.

see your pictures too. You can get in touch.

:23:37.:23:49.

Tonight, Hull's Bee Lady has got her wish to turn on the Christmas Lights

:23:50.:23:55.

in her home city, a thank you for raising more than ?100,000 for

:23:56.:24:01.

charity. Amy Cole was there. What sort of reception did Jean get?

:24:02.:24:07.

They're absolutely love her here. There is so much going on, but she

:24:08.:24:14.

is a mini celebrity. I have even one Skype so we are matching. This is

:24:15.:24:20.

the moment when Jean Bishop turned on the Christmas lights. Happy

:24:21.:24:33.

Christmas, Hull. Jean, what was it like turning on those lights? Oh, it

:24:34.:24:38.

was out of this world. I could have stopped there all day and all night.

:24:39.:24:46.

It was lovely. You are on the same balcony that Luke Campbell was on,

:24:47.:24:50.

the Olympic medallist. Yes, I know, it was lovely. I can't believe it. I

:24:51.:24:56.

cant believe I was here. It has been an amazing year. It has, it has. And

:24:57.:25:03.

it has finished. I am going here and there. My feet don't seem to touch

:25:04.:25:08.

the ground, you know. You are a busy bee. I am, very busy. I know a man

:25:09.:25:15.

who really wanted to turn these lights on. He is called Mr Peter

:25:16.:25:20.
