London. That is all from the BBC News at


six. On BBC One we Good evening and welcome to BBC Look


North. The headlines tonight: Legal highs ` the new drugs ruining young


people's lives. They are made on the black market. They can be made in a


cement mixer and somebody's basement.


Claims Grimsby Town are suffocating in a dated stadium, but there's a


row over plans for a new ground. A for the most serious cases in


Lincolnshire could be centralised in just one place. And remembering the


day the Beatles came to Hull, fifty years ago. And don't forget the


weather forecast follows. A Lincolnshire mother says her


family has been destroyed after her sons became addicted to drugs called


legal highs. Both sons stole from her to fund their habits ` one has


been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Incidents involving the


drugs have affected almost every secondary school in Lincolnshire.


Hull has been named in one report as having among the highest number of


legal high outlets in England, But police say there is little they can


do to stop the supply, as Crispin Rolfe reports: You can buy them on


the internet, in high street shops markets, or even at car`boot sales.


Legal highs mimic the effect of illegal drugs. But there are serious


risks to them, as they're often made from plant food or research


chemicals. A mother from Lincolnshire told us how her two


sons became addicted. Brenda and Elliott's names have been changed.


Legal highs have a really broken her family. I have one son who does not


live with me. My eldest is detained under the mental health act. A


friend said, how about trying something new? I thought, I will


give it a go. It got out of hand. If I was going out, getting stoned all


night, I den function all day. Elliott stopped taking legal highs


six months ago, but this is what he was on: Exodus Damntion ` easily


found and bought online in a matter of minutes. On this site there are


even bulk buy discounts. Some of them produce Frank and very


unpleasant hallucinations. Some can kill you. Some can make you feel


very depressed. They are not a controlled product. They are made on


the black market. They could be made in a cement mixer in somebody's


basement. And that's what makes policing it so hard. Just as one


substance is banned, new legal products are constantly being


created. In Lincolnshire almost every secondary school in the county


has reported a legal high problem. Students know that if they bring


them in they would be permanently excluded. That is the policy. But we


hear what students are doing over weekends, including legal highs.


That concerns us. I don't know who you get them off, but you can get


them easily. Why should we use them? Why are they legal if they are


so bad? Lincolnshire Police are now cracking down on suppliers, who may


be illegally selling legal highs to under 18s. But right now Elliott


says these untested chemicals are all to easy to come by. If I saved


up all the money that I spent an legal highs and could have afforded


a three`week holiday. What would you rather do? Earlier I spoke to Harry


Shapiro who's an expert on drugs and asked him if making these drugs


illegal would solve the problem. A number of them already are. The


complication is that much of these substances, anything in a packet, it


can be a mixture of legal and illegal. So the situation is


complicated. Just banning stuff is not necessarily an answer. Are they


readily available? Our research, and other charity research would suggest


that they are widely available. Not just online, but a number of other


ordinary high`street retail outlets. How can police do anything? It is


very hard. The legal powers are quite restricted. Which is why


people are looking at trading standards and consumer legislation,


other ways of addressing the problem. How hard is it to stop


teenagers, all warned them not to get involved? That has always proved


difficult. Even in relationship to more familiar drugs. But there needs


to be more public messaging about these substances. The idea abroad is


that somehow legal eagles safe. And the fact you can buy them anywhere


means that somehow they have tested clinically proven. Those are the


wrong messages. Many people will be shocked by this story. Do you have a


message to young people? No drug, no risk. Legal is not safe. If you're


going to experiment, and I suggest you shouldn't, but if you are, be


very careful. What do you think? We want to hear.


We will try to get back to her in a moment.


The NHS in Lincolnshire is facing a ?100 million hole in its finances


unless some big, brave decisions are made about services in the future.


That's the conclusion of a report looking at health and social care


across the county. Patients are being warned they will need to


accept changes that could include centralising A, maternity and


children's care on just one hospital site. Our health correspondent Vicky


Johnson has been looking at the report. Hospital services across


Lincolnshire have faced one critical report after. `` another. Just this


year they've been investigated for high death rates, been put in


special measures and been told to take urgent action by a health


watchdog. Now in response local health managers have come up with a


wide reaching review. One of the proposals could see A services


centralised on one hospital site supported by smaller, local


departments. It is about making things as local as possible. Giving


people really good quality of care, locally. So in Lincolnshire will


have won a major, urgent care centre? We have not formally made


the decision. It would certainly be the case if we were doing nothing


and just following national policy, that is what they would take us to.


These shoppers in Boston say they hope their local hospital doesn't


lose any services. We are in the middle of nowhere. It is a long way


to go to Lincoln Nottingham. It is not going to be very easy to do.


Instead of downgrading they should opt right. `` upgrade. The local


healthwatch group has promised to scrutinise all all proposals every


step of the way. We are watching carefully. When this review gets


further development and proposals come out, we will need to look very


carefully at them to see what effect they will have.


We have not yet been given specific details. But hospitals like this one


will likely become smaller. Bed numbers will be reduced and services


centralised. In short, our hospitals will look very different to how they


do now. A father from Skegness whose son was


left in a coma when he was knocked off his bike, says the sixteen year


old has spoken for the first time since the incident in July. Ryan


Smith is being transferred from Lincoln County Hospital today, to a


specialist brain unit in Surrey. His father Mark Smith is campaigning to


make cycle helmets compulsory. A court's heard how a man, who's


alleged to have helped to carry out an arson attack on a Mosque in


Grimsby, drove a car to the building knowing that it contained petrol


bombs. What has the court been told. The arson attack, directed at the


mosque behind me, happened on May 26. Daniel Cressey, 24, denies any


involvement in the attack. The jury, made up of eight women and four men,


were shown CCTV footage obtained from a house where two other men,


who have already pleaded guilty, are filmed making petrol bombs. Daniel


Cressey is then seen arriving at the property, where he stays for 40


mins. The CCTV footage then captures Cressey leaving the property and


getting into his car. He is accused of giving the two men a lift to the


mosque knowing that the car contained the petrol bombs, so


aiding and abetting the attack. He denies this charge. The other men,


Stuart Harness, the defendants cousin, and Gavin Humphries, both in


their thirties, have already pleaded guilty to the charge of arson with


the intent to endanger the lives of others at an earlier hearing. The


trial continues. Thank you for watching. Still ahead


tonight: The day the Beatles came to Hull ` and why it caused screaming


and fainting. It was unbelievable. Before the Beatles, nothing like


that happened. Tonight's photograph was taken by


Alan. The sunset taken near Gainsborough.


And now the weather. Campaigners say it would be disrespectful to build a


new stadium for it is not looking too bad. Dry, frosty start, sunshine


around, fog in places. High pressure still in charge. A change in midweek


as a weather front introduces less cold air. Temperatures could be as


high as 10 Celsius, feeling milder. It has been disappointing across the


south`east. A stream of cloud flowing in. But that will continue


to break up. We will see skies turning increasingly clear. Just a


light, north to north`westerly wind. A widespread, possibly moderate


frost. This is what we are thinking temperatures will be at, dawn. Let's


look at the sunrise times. And your high water times. A frosty start


tomorrow morning, fog around. It might take much of the morning to


clear. Otherwise bright with sunshine. A lovely, light autumn


day. The top temperatures, the average for this time of year is


about eight or nine degrees. We are quite below that. Four or five


Celsius. We have a weather front to come through on Tuesday. A week


feature. Weakening the cloud and bringing a little light rain and


drizzle. Many places stay dry. Wednesday morning, a cloudy start.


Temperatures recovering nicely. A milder feel. Thursday looks dry.


Patchy rain for a time first thing on Friday. Thank you.


Darren wanted to listen to your show and got this message. That sums you


up. Campaigners say it would be


disrespectful to build a new Grimsby town stadium next to a garden of


remembrance. But the club says their Blundell Park ground is a "dated


Victorian stadium" and they have to move. This afternoon, the Mariners


have been given another year to find financial backing for a site near


Peaks Parkway. Emma Massey reports. Wills B road is a quiet residential


street. At the far end, an allotment, and the crematorium. It


is here that Grimsby town want to develop a stadium. They have been


given 12 months to find a partner to achieve that goal. The majority of


people wanted to sign this... In just one week over 400 people had


signed a petition against it. People will not be able to sell their


properties, in addition, it is in close proximity to a cemetery. That


is well used at the weekends. To have the situation where you have


all crowds chanting in the background, `` football, that is a


bad idea. Grimsby have played at their current ground since 1899.


They have made a number of failed attempts for an out`of`town stadium.


In 2012, this area was put forward. It is an issue that has rumbled on


for 20 years with no solution. The residents are against the plans and


haven't been so since they were first proposed. All the residents


are absolutely against it. We had notices in the window. I doubt if


you would get more than the odd one that wants it. It is wrong. But it


is a different view from supporters. They say it is the only option for


the club if it is to have a future success. There has got to be


progress for the future. It is stifling ambition and progress. It


is definitely needed. It is very important for the future of the


club. Good for the town also. The decision means more uncertainty, for


supporters and the local residents who do not want a stadium on their


doorstep. Earlier I spoke to one of Grimsby


Town's directors and asked him how important it was for the club to


find a new home. If you look at the current ground, it was built in


Victorian times. It is located next to the sea. When all is said and


done, we will never have a situation where we can get sufficient parking.


People want to come these days, we could throw ?10 million


regeneration, and it simply would not increase our income in anyway,


shape, or form. Why choose a site close to electronic touring? ``


close to a crematorium. We engaged very sensibly with all kinds of


April suffering bereavement. We bring families together. We have


wakes at the foot club. We can sympathetically handle being nearby


a crematorium. There is absolutely no way that I feel playing football


once every fortnight is going to actually cause any issues with


regard to people visiting the crematorium. We don't clash with


services that take place. I think we can have the harmony that we have


always had with neighbours. People don't agree with that. 400


signatures on a petition. At the end of the day the football club needs


to relocate. There are very few places it can relocate to. We need


to enable development. There are only a couple of occasions that


would work. One has fallen through because of the cost associated


conditions attached. It is not viable relocate elsewhere. This


particular location benefits us because it is land owned by the


council. That does not sidestep the need for us to get planning


permission and jump through the hoops you need to deal with. Will it


happen? I believe we have a real opportunity to deliver. But it


relies on enabling development. We need an exclusivity agreement in


place to work on it further. In time I'm sure we will have good news.


What do you think? We want to hear. Thanks for getting in touch about


our story about the Beverley and Holderness MP's Royal Mail campaign


to take Humberside from its database of addresses. He wants "East


Yorkshire" reinstated. Debbie says she would love a Humberside sticker.


Her mail annoys her. She is proud to let people know she lives in East


Yorkshire. Martin prefers the original names. He asks why people


talk about Yorkshire and the Humber when no`one actually lives in the


river. Sheila says the people living in a Lincolnshire village have one


week left to save their local church Urgent repairs are needed on the


spire on St Margaret's Church in Thimbleby near Horncastle. If they


aren't done it could collapse. Natural England have told local


residents they have until this weekend to repair it. They say


delaying the work could disrupt bats who are about to start hibernation.


The mighty Liverpool provide Hull City with their next opponents in


the Premier League straight after the Tigers' first home defeat to


bottom club Crystal Palace at the KC Stadium. Looking ahead to that and


Scunthorpe United here's our sports reporter Simon Clark. It was a day


when not much went right for the Tigers. Even seeing Yannick Bolasie


sent`off for Palace didn't do much as the London side dusted themselves


down to score the only goal of the game. And fans and stewards had a


spat about the unfurling of a banner as the club naming row rumbles on.


On the pitch City must do better and the manager knows it. You could see


that they became more confident and relied on the counterattack. We


certainly did not do enough to win the game, although I did not think


we deserved to lose it. With Crystal Palace having Iman said off and


scoring straight after, we could have done a lot better. Nothing to


get excited about. Hull City now face six crucial December dates with


two of the giants, Liverpool and Manchester Utd brining their culture


to the city. They're without a manager but caretaker Russ Wilcox


was delight with Scunthorpe United's win at Portsmouth. On`loan


midfielder Dave Sires scored both goals for the Iron who head to third


placed Rochdale tomorrow. It would be a tough game for both teams. We


put our stamp on the game be positive. We're not going to shut up


shop. It could be an exciting game. Wilcox won't be drawn on the job but


a win tomorrow and again on Saturdat agaisnt Torquay Utd might put him in


the frame A police officer from Cleethorpes has made the Guinness


Book of Records for owning the world's largest collection of


bagpipes. Danny Fleming owns 105 sets of bagpipes which he's been


collecting since he was a teenager. One set is valued at ?10,000. I got


in touch with the Guinness book of records. They allocated me a manager


and a witness. They are quite sticklers for detail. My wife is


delighted. She thinks I will be selling them. But not at this time.


It's 50 years since the Beatles were on stage at the ABC Cinema in Hull.


The anniversary has been marked with a tribute performance in a shopping


centre which is on the site of the old cinema. We were there and met


people who saw the Beatles five decades ago. The whole of the error


around the ABC, you could not move. `` area. There were so many people


screaming. In 1963 Beatlemania took over Hull when the fab four came to


town. Hundreds of fans gathered to see them perform at city's ABC


Cinema. Lynda Hill met the band and saw them play that day. It was


unbelievable. Before the Beatles, nothing like that had happened. They


were absolutely lovely. It was a dream. Yesterday in Hull the sound


of the beatles travelled through St Stephen's shopping centre ` which


was built in the cinema's place ` a tribute act marked the gig's 50th


anniversary. I was outside when they played at the ABC. I was only about


12. There were people both older and younger than me. They have got that


appeal. It goes throughout generations. Best band ever. 50


years on, people still paying tribute. Lynda is helping to collect


people's stories about the Beatles for a special book. Denise Hepke is


one of those who came to share her memories. I was at the ballroom on


the Saturday afternoon. The Beatles came over the speaker, and that was


it. We thought they were black. They had that sort of lovely Motown


sound. I was hooked on them. When we saw them, we realise that they were


something brand`new. The tribute act may not have been the real thing but


the music reminded people what they loved about the band. Those who came


to mark the anniversary have no doubt the songs will keep people


singing and dancing for another fifty years to come.


On the ticket it said that the price was six and six. Young people. A


recap of the national and regional headline: The couple suspected of


holding three women as slaves are named ` they belonged to an extreme


communist group. The new legal`high drugs ruining young people's lives.


Police say they're almost powerless to stop the supply. Tomorrow's


weather: Any fog patches clearing then all parts dry and bright with


good spells of sunshine. Maximum temperature five Celsius. And on the


subject of legal highs, Jack says he has not tried them but most friends


who have. His advice is listen to parents and helplines. An anonymous


text, I don't go one day at school without hearing about drugs.


Completely normal. It is completely awful and I will never try it. That


is a good message. Thank you. Another anonymous message, my son


changed into a paranoid, bad tempered child because the drugs are


so addictive. Thankfully he has come of them and turned his life around.


Good night.
