Louise, thank you. That's all from the BBC News at Six. It's goodbye

from the BBC News at Six. It's goodbye

:00:00.:00:00.

from me. And on BBC Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:07.

North. The headlines tonight: A loan shark who preyed upon the vulnerable

:00:08.:00:11.

and needy to fund his criminal life is sentenced to 12 years in prison.

:00:12.:00:25.

Conspiring to kill someone, and very nasty arson.

:00:26.:00:26.

Road safety campaigners criticise Euro MP Godfrey Bloom after comments

:00:27.:00:38.

about speeding drivers. Speeding doesn't kill. What kills people is

:00:39.:00:42.

driving without undue care and attention. Dangerous driving. ?

:00:43.:00:45.

?NEWLINE Illegal medicines are seized in a series of raids at East

:00:46.:00:56.

European supermarkets. A chance to buy a piece of history `

:00:57.:01:00.

the historic school selling off more than just its silver. Join me for

:01:01.:01:09.

the detailed forecast in 15 minutes. He was described in court as an

:01:10.:01:12.

"underworld gangster," and tonight, a Hull loan shark is starting a

:01:13.:01:18.

12`year prison sentence. Darren Wilson committed a string of crimes

:01:19.:01:21.

including conspiracy to commit murder, drug dealing, arson and

:01:22.:01:26.

illegal money lending. The prosecution had accused him of

:01:27.:01:29.

lending money to the "vulnerable and needy". In a moment we'll hear from

:01:30.:01:41.

an MP who's campaigning for better protection for borrowers. But first

:01:42.:01:46.

Sarah Corker has this report from Hull Crown Court.

:01:47.:01:49.

Targeting some of Hull's poorest people, Darren Wilson lent money

:01:50.:01:51.

illegally, charging extortionate rates of interest. Described as a

:01:52.:02:02.

bully and a ring leader. 406 loans went out worth almost a quarter of a

:02:03.:02:09.

million pounds. Some of these people were particularly vulnerable. There

:02:10.:02:12.

were people who could not go elsewhere for loans and ended up in

:02:13.:02:19.

his clutches. He was making a lot of money. Throwing petrol bombs through

:02:20.:02:25.

windows. Humberside police said those profits bankrolled criminal

:02:26.:02:34.

activities. It is linked to serious organised crime. These people tried

:02:35.:02:46.

to take on a huge job trying to kill someone.

:02:47.:02:49.

With his brother, Dean Armstrong, on the right, the pair spent the

:02:50.:02:52.

profits building up a drugs business. This house was petrol

:02:53.:02:57.

bombed because they want to grow cannabis there. The judge said they

:02:58.:03:10.

acted like "underworld gangsters." For six years, he ran his lunch at

:03:11.:03:17.

business from the street on the brands her estate. For those who

:03:18.:03:21.

could not pay, he threatened them with finance. And this week a report

:03:22.:03:29.

revealed more people in Hull are living with serious debt than

:03:30.:03:35.

anywhere else in the UK. The struggle felt here in this church

:03:36.:03:39.

cafe. It is hard. I have always struggled with money. You get that

:03:40.:03:56.

roller`coaster effect. Loan sharks are ready to exploit people. What

:03:57.:04:03.

seems like fast cash can quickly turn into a frightening and

:04:04.:04:07.

long`term problem. Earlier I spoke to the MP Stella

:04:08.:04:10.

Creasy, who's campaigning for better protection for people borrowing

:04:11.:04:13.

money. I asked her if she could understand why people would resort

:04:14.:04:17.

to illegal loan sharks. Absolutely. We know crisis are happening. ` `

:04:18.:04:29.

weaner prices are rising more than wages. Do you agree if we clamp down

:04:30.:04:38.

on the legal moneylenders, these illegal loan chats will prosper and

:04:39.:04:42.

we will hear more stories like today? No, not at all. The evidence

:04:43.:04:49.

from companies that have had caps, the reverse is true. It is a win`win

:04:50.:05:06.

scenario. What is the cap in terms of interest rates you would like to

:05:07.:05:14.

see. Give me a figure. I want a cap on every part of it that you can get

:05:15.:05:21.

into. 50% of profit come from default charges. It is designed to

:05:22.:05:28.

get you into debt. I want a cap on all of those. The crucial thing is,

:05:29.:05:45.

the government is listening to the case we have been making, which is

:05:46.:05:50.

that capping is the only thing that will help. You haven't got a figure

:05:51.:06:00.

you want? We won independent regulator to look at the market. It

:06:01.:06:06.

looks that the government is finally listening this week.

:06:07.:06:09.

Stella Creasy speaking to me a few moments ago. We want to hear what

:06:10.:06:13.

you've got to say on this one. Have you ever taken out a loan that

:06:14.:06:16.

you've found it difficult to repay? Do you think pay day lenders are a

:06:17.:06:20.

useful way for people to get money when they need it?

:06:21.:06:40.

Thank you for watching. In a moment: Opera North reveal

:06:41.:06:46.

ambitious plans to give youngsters the chance to perform with

:06:47.:06:54.

professional musicians. Three people who died in a head`on

:06:55.:06:57.

crash in East Yorkshire yesterday morning were from Hull. A

:06:58.:07:02.

40`year`old woman and her 18`year`old son as well as a

:07:03.:07:05.

47`year`old died in the crash on the B12`48 near Wetwang. All three were

:07:06.:07:14.

Polish nationals living in Hull. Two other men are still in hospital `

:07:15.:07:18.

one with critical and the other with serious injuries.

:07:19.:07:20.

A man has been found guilty of aiding and abetting an arson on a

:07:21.:07:23.

Grimsby Mosque. 24`year`old Darren Cressey from New Holland had denied

:07:24.:07:27.

giving a lift to two other men who petrol bombed the premises. All

:07:28.:07:35.

three will be sentenced next month. .

:07:36.:07:39.

Road safety campaigners have criticised the controversial East

:07:40.:07:42.

Yorkshire`based Euro MP Godfrey Bloom, following comments he's made

:07:43.:07:44.

about speeding drivers. Mr Bloom says he wants to stand for

:07:45.:07:47.

parliament as a "motorists champion" ` but he's angered some by claiming

:07:48.:07:51.

that speed doesn't kill. More from Tim Iredale.

:07:52.:08:01.

Britain's 30 million drivers are the most oppressed group in the country,

:08:02.:08:07.

says this MEP who is no stranger to controversy. Godfrey Bloom will be

:08:08.:08:11.

leaving Brussels behind soon, and says he wants to defend the rights

:08:12.:08:15.

of motorists at Westminster. Speeding doesn't kill. What kills

:08:16.:08:21.

people is driving without due care and attention, dangerous driving,

:08:22.:08:25.

driving like an idiot, but not driving at 32 mph 33 mph when

:08:26.:08:31.

grandma is going to Tesco. It is two months since Mr Broom announced he

:08:32.:08:36.

would be stepping down as a UKIP MEP after jokingly referred to a group

:08:37.:08:54.

of women as "sluts". Godfrey has been a follower of my work for quite

:08:55.:09:00.

a few years. The motoring industry is a multi`million pound industry.

:09:01.:09:11.

Of course, there are thousands of thousands of unnecessary

:09:12.:09:14.

prosecutions. Godfrey Bloom is critical of what he described as the

:09:15.:09:16.

emotional presentation adopted by some road safety groups, and their

:09:17.:09:22.

use of grieving relatives in campaigns. One man who says he won't

:09:23.:09:29.

be voting for Mr Broom Stephen. Almost eight years ago, his brother

:09:30.:09:35.

Tony was killed by a speeding drunk driver in Hull. He is now a

:09:36.:09:38.

volunteer with a road safety charity. He is an idiot. Total

:09:39.:09:46.

idiot. If they were to stand in front of a car at 60 mph, it would

:09:47.:09:52.

properly kill them. If they stood in front of a car doing 20 mph, it

:09:53.:09:57.

would probably break a bone. It is a simple as that. Speed kills. So, if

:09:58.:10:02.

Godfrey Bloom is serious about representing written's drivers as an

:10:03.:10:08.

MP, he is likely to embark on a bumpy political journey.

:10:09.:10:10.

Joining me now is former police officer and Humberside Police and

:10:11.:10:13.

Crime Commissioner candidate Paul Davison. Good evening. Godfrey

:10:14.:10:24.

Bloom, right one? All wrong? Does speed kill? Speech does kill. I

:10:25.:10:32.

understand his argument, that it is about the way you drive. If he had

:10:33.:10:36.

since the casualties I have seen in my career caused by speed, you

:10:37.:10:40.

certainly would not speak again. What you think of is, is? I don't

:10:41.:10:45.

often agree with him. Some of his comments about the way we use of

:10:46.:10:51.

vehicles, the way we drive, I think are actually correct. But speech

:10:52.:10:56.

does kill. Can you be a better and safer driver at 40 miles an hour

:10:57.:11:00.

than to 30 miles an hour and not paying attention? The problem with

:11:01.:11:07.

speed is, you can begin a 30 miles or 40 miles an hour, with due care

:11:08.:11:13.

and attention. The problem is if a pedestrian walks into the middle of

:11:14.:11:16.

the road, you are far more likely to kill that person at a higher speed.

:11:17.:11:20.

Speed limit and not there for the fun of it, they are therefore

:11:21.:11:24.

reason, to reduce your speed so we can all be far safer on the roads.

:11:25.:11:30.

Many people watching will have been to speed awareness courses. Mr Bloom

:11:31.:11:35.

does not like these emotional presentations by road safety groups.

:11:36.:11:40.

They do work. If you had seen some of the scenes I have been to, it is

:11:41.:11:45.

a very traumatic thing to witness it. Speed cameras reduce accidents

:11:46.:11:53.

and fatal accidents. The evidence is there. The way they have been

:11:54.:12:01.

introduced is the issue. They are a blunt instrument. The first point I

:12:02.:12:05.

would like to make is the money generated from fixed camera sites

:12:06.:12:08.

should go to the Treasury. The second point is, is that of getting

:12:09.:12:12.

a letter through the letterbox straightaway, I think you'd be

:12:13.:12:17.

better off getting a letter advising you straightaway, three strikes

:12:18.:12:22.

and you are out. Thank you for coming in. Very interesting.

:12:23.:12:24.

Do you agree with Godfrey Bloom that speed doesn't kill? What about speed

:12:25.:12:28.

cameras ` do they play a role in keeping us safe, or are they just

:12:29.:12:32.

they to raise money for police forces?

:12:33.:12:43.

Scores of illegal medicines have been seized in a series of raids at

:12:44.:12:48.

East European supermarkets in Boston. They followed the death of a

:12:49.:12:51.

Latvian man in South Lincolnshire who took an unlicensed drug rather

:12:52.:12:55.

than seeking medical advice from a doctor. The raids were carried out

:12:56.:12:59.

by the medicines regulator alongside local police officers. Vicky Johnson

:13:00.:13:08.

joined them. Boston's ethnic supermarkets have

:13:09.:13:10.

built their businesses on selling products from overseas. What many

:13:11.:13:13.

don't realise is that supplying unlicensed foreign medicines is

:13:14.:13:22.

illegal. These investigators, who don't want

:13:23.:13:24.

to be identified for operational reasons, targeted shops in the

:13:25.:13:33.

town's west street. These raids have been prompted by the death of a

:13:34.:13:36.

41`year`old Latvian man who was suffering from a stomach ulcer. You

:13:37.:13:51.

He could have been treated easily by a doctor, but instead he took the

:13:52.:13:54.

prescription drug No Spa from a local supermarket. Shouldn't There's

:13:55.:13:57.

no suggestion that the drug caused his death ` but it should only be

:13:58.:14:00.

taken with a prescription.These investigators want to know where he

:14:01.:14:04.

could have bought it from. It was on sale for some time. It is a pharmacy

:14:05.:14:08.

only product. It can only be sold from a pharmacy.

:14:09.:14:17.

The team has found what they were looking for ` shelves of imported

:14:18.:14:20.

medicines ` including the unlicensed prescription drug. We can't

:14:21.:14:25.

guarantee the safety quality. We don't know what the Triumph of the

:14:26.:14:30.

products is. ` ` we don't know what the Trail is. We can't guarantee the

:14:31.:14:37.

quality or safety. The so who's buying these products?

:14:38.:14:47.

Diva moved to bBston from Lithuania nine years ago. Sometimes I have

:14:48.:14:57.

bought medicines. It is very rare. The deaths of at least two migrant

:14:58.:15:01.

workers in the past year have been connected to unlicensed medicines.

:15:02.:15:07.

Today's rate should send a clear message that these products will not

:15:08.:15:09.

be tolerated. Still ahead tonight: Former Lincoln

:15:10.:15:17.

and Hull goal`scorer, Delroy Facey, is arrested as part of an

:15:18.:15:19.

investigation into alleged match`fixing.

:15:20.:15:21.

History for sale ` the school selling off nearly everything after

:15:22.:15:22.

a move to a modern campus. Paul Goldthorpe took this at RAF

:15:23.:15:48.

Conningsby. Do you have a comment about that?

:15:49.:15:51.

Not really. Just as well because he is a weather

:15:52.:16:03.

forecaster. Somebody told John Kirkley today

:16:04.:16:06.

what was wrong with you and he said, a likely story.

:16:07.:16:14.

Can I just said, I have got conjunctivitis. I have not been

:16:15.:16:19.

lumped by somebody. Tomorrow, it turns sunny. It will also turn

:16:20.:16:24.

windy. After a cloudy, damp start, it will brighten up. Girls are

:16:25.:16:33.

expected in coastal areas tomorrow. It is fairly quiet at the moment. A

:16:34.:16:38.

lot of clout. Temperatures have been on the low side, especially across

:16:39.:16:44.

Lincolnshire. We may see a few cloud breaks coming to this evening. It

:16:45.:16:49.

might lead to a little mist and fog for a time. Then the wind picks up

:16:50.:16:52.

and the cloud thickens. We will see patchy rain spreading down on what

:16:53.:16:58.

is quite a week, called front. Lowest temperatures, for five.

:16:59.:17:13.

Perhaps lower in countryside areas. Tomorrow morning, after windy,

:17:14.:17:19.

cloudy and perhaps a damp start, any patchy rain quickly sweeping away

:17:20.:17:23.

south eastwards. By the end of the morning, it turns sunny and a lot of

:17:24.:17:28.

blue sky. There will be a fresh to strong north`westerly. The wind will

:17:29.:17:42.

turn increasingly chilly. The weekend looking predominantly dry.

:17:43.:17:50.

Marc Laird Sunday and Monday but it stays mostly dry with some bright

:17:51.:18:02.

sunny intervals. . You take care.

:18:03.:18:06.

The former Lincoln and Hull footballer Delroy Facey has been

:18:07.:18:10.

arrested as part of an investigation into alleged match`fixing. The

:18:11.:18:16.

player`turned`agent is one of six people being questioned by the

:18:17.:18:19.

National Crime Agency following an investigation by the Daily Telegraph

:18:20.:18:26.

newspaper. Well Olivia Richwald is in Delroy Facey's home town of

:18:27.:18:29.

Huddersfield. Olivia, what can you tell us? I am standing outside what

:18:30.:18:43.

we believe is a be the home of Delroy Facey in Huddersfield. People

:18:44.:18:44.

have been coming and going all day. He was born in Huddersfield in 1980

:18:45.:18:55.

and played for the local club as a teenager. He moved on to the then

:18:56.:19:02.

Premier side Bolton Wanderers. He was beset by injuries in 2002, and

:19:03.:19:07.

did not stay at Bolton very long. He transferred online to Bradford City.

:19:08.:19:11.

He can have descended through the football ranks. Amongst them was

:19:12.:19:23.

Hull. He played there from June 2004 four year. He also played from

:19:24.:19:27.

Lincoln city. We have some shots from him. Year after that, his

:19:28.:19:33.

career at Hereford United. He now plays for a non`league team in

:19:34.:19:38.

Bradford. It is very important to say all the clubs I have mentioned,

:19:39.:19:42.

there is no suggestion any of those clubs are involved in any of these

:19:43.:19:46.

allegations. Delroy Facey was one of seven people arrested by the

:19:47.:19:54.

National Crime Agency. Breaking news tonight is to people have been

:19:55.:19:58.

charged with conspiracy to defraud. He is not one of them. Iron`macro

:19:59.:20:03.

Olivia, thank you very much. In Football, Russ Wilcox is to

:20:04.:20:05.

continue as Scunthorpe United manager into the New Year. He took

:20:06.:20:09.

over as caretaker manager after Brian Laws was sacked last week and

:20:10.:20:13.

his side have won both games since then.

:20:14.:20:17.

Thanks to everyone who contacted us about the possible clamp`down on

:20:18.:20:20.

people who smoke outside hospitals in our area. New recommendations

:20:21.:20:29.

were published yesterday which say that smoking should be banned on all

:20:30.:20:33.

hospital grounds ` and that shelters and other designated areas for

:20:34.:20:34.

smokers should be removed. You maybe wouldn't have thought

:20:35.:21:01.

opera and Hull would be a natural fit, but then a fortnight ago how

:21:02.:21:04.

many of us would have thought Hull would win the title of City of

:21:05.:21:11.

Culture? Now, though, opera is being introduced to the city and its

:21:12.:21:14.

schools by a travelling company based in Leeds. As Caroline Bilton

:21:15.:21:18.

reports Hull is already taking its place on the cultural map.

:21:19.:21:26.

Hull has got something to sing about ` it's a City of Culture and here is

:21:27.:21:35.

a taste of what's coming its way. Opera North is based in Leeds ` it's

:21:36.:21:39.

performed over 200 times in Hull over the years, but it wants to do

:21:40.:21:42.

more. We are going to issue an invitation to Hull to develop a

:21:43.:21:54.

partnership with others. Opera is a transforming experience. We would

:21:55.:21:59.

like more people to discover it. But their work stretches further

:22:00.:22:03.

than that ` opera could be coming to Hull's schools as well.

:22:04.:22:07.

This travelling opera company want to use music to transform the lives

:22:08.:22:10.

of children from disadvantaged backgrounds. They've been running

:22:11.:22:19.

this project in Leeds. My aunt is coming and she has never seen me

:22:20.:22:28.

doing anything before. It is like in my family's genes. My dad likes

:22:29.:22:34.

singing. My mum likes dancing. We give them instruments, skills to

:22:35.:22:42.

excel musically. That process of learning brings about a wealth of

:22:43.:22:47.

social skills. The plan is to bring popular not only into the theatres

:22:48.:22:51.

and schools in Hull, but also unusual venues like the deep. Would

:22:52.:22:59.

you see an opera if it was put on someone like this? Yes. I would love

:23:00.:23:03.

to see more opera been performed. Have you been to one? Yes. It was

:23:04.:23:09.

fabulous. I cried my eyes out. The latest commitment to the city

:23:10.:23:13.

from Opera North comes of the back of a five`year deal with the Royal

:23:14.:23:16.

Philharmonic Orchestra to take residence in the city. 2017 may be a

:23:17.:23:20.

long way off, but Hull it would seem is now well and truly on the

:23:21.:23:24.

cultural map. Caroline Bilton is in Hull. Can we

:23:25.:23:28.

expect other high profile arts groups to come to the city over the

:23:29.:23:38.

next few years? The big team tell me they are hoping to attract

:23:39.:23:43.

international people. They say they have made links with the London Jazz

:23:44.:23:46.

Festival and the Yorkshire scorcher Park. They're hoping to make links

:23:47.:23:51.

with the Tate and the National Gallery in London. Rather than

:23:52.:23:56.

people from the region travelling to the capital, culture will come to

:23:57.:24:01.

them and it will be right here on their doorstep. The beauty of this

:24:02.:24:05.

is we do not have to wait until 2017. We're going to start getting

:24:06.:24:10.

it now. Thank you very much.

:24:11.:24:13.

It's been a part of the history of Hull for more than 220 years, but

:24:14.:24:17.

it's now being sold off. Staff and pupils from Trinity House Academy

:24:18.:24:21.

have already moved to a brand new school in the city, leaving their

:24:22.:24:23.

historic home on Princess Dock Street. Now everything inside the

:24:24.:24:26.

original building is up for sale ` from desks to white boards and even

:24:27.:24:31.

the ceremonial flagpole. Amanda White has been to find out more. Its

:24:32.:24:49.

maritime links were as strong during the Duke of Edinburgh's visit as

:24:50.:25:00.

when the school was founded. Kick Murphy, whose letters home from sea

:25:01.:25:04.

in the 1890s form a unique record of life at sea, was a pupil at Trinity,

:25:05.:25:08.

as was Captain Russ Garbutt, who followed a career in the merchant

:25:09.:25:14.

navy. Ross was another pupil. I spent a lot of time around the fish

:25:15.:25:21.

stock. Lots of people were in the merchant Navy. To pass examination

:25:22.:25:26.

to go to that school was really something to be proud of.

:25:27.:25:30.

For more than 200 years, this school was a hub of youth and learning.
