Keep up-to-date online. That's all from the BBC News At Six,

:00:00.:00:00.

so it's goodbye Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:08.

North. The headlines tonight. Winners and losers ` changes to how

:00:09.:00:11.

much turbine companies get paid for their energy. We have not had those

:00:12.:00:23.

kind of words before so it is encouraging. There is a sense the

:00:24.:00:28.

announcement is something of a turning point for this industry.

:00:29.:00:30.

Worries about mental health care for children in Hull go before a

:00:31.:00:33.

government minister People on the East Coast are warned about possible

:00:34.:00:37.

flooding over the next 48 hours due to high winds. People are one about

:00:38.:00:47.

possible flooding. We want the public to steer clear because there

:00:48.:00:54.

is a risk you could get swept away. There is a Met Office amber warning

:00:55.:00:57.

in place for widespread severe gales. Grimsby gets set for the

:00:58.:01:01.

return of a Hollywood star for a spy movie.

:01:02.:01:19.

The government has today announced changes to energy subsidies. Onshore

:01:20.:01:28.

wind farms will receive less state aid in favour of offshore wind

:01:29.:01:32.

projects. Campaigners in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire hope

:01:33.:01:34.

this will now mean fewer wind farms are built. Many working in the

:01:35.:01:41.

offshore industry say the news is a potential boost to business and

:01:42.:01:46.

jobs. Tonight, Siemens, who want to build a turbine factory in the

:01:47.:01:49.

Humber, described today's announcement as a step in the right

:01:50.:01:55.

direction. Here is Paul Murphy. Building turbines at the end getting

:01:56.:01:59.

them to work properly is an expensive business. That is why this

:02:00.:02:03.

industry has always said it needs government subsidy. Today, after

:02:04.:02:07.

years of uncertainty, that commitment appears to have arrived.

:02:08.:02:15.

We will increase what we pay for offshore wind. We believe this will

:02:16.:02:23.

make the targets achievable. These words are going down well on the

:02:24.:02:31.

Humber. Siemens has described the announcement as a step in the right

:02:32.:02:40.

direction. It is good news. We have seen another company make an

:02:41.:02:47.

announcement, and it is an excellent commitment from the government. We

:02:48.:02:52.

have not heard those words before so it is quite encouraging. Despite the

:02:53.:02:55.

hype, large`scale renewable energy projects in Hull are still only

:02:56.:03:02.

artist's impressions. There is a sense that the announcement is

:03:03.:03:05.

something of a turning point for this industry. But not all turbines

:03:06.:03:12.

are the same. The government is taking a different view of the

:03:13.:03:15.

land`based industry. The prices it pays for onshore wind and solar

:03:16.:03:22.

energy will be cut from 2015. That will enable the government to pay

:03:23.:03:25.

more for electricity from offshore wind, and that is going down well in

:03:26.:03:30.

parts of Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire, where there has been

:03:31.:03:33.

fierce opposition to these onshore machines. I think this will

:03:34.:03:43.

seriously impact on developers. Without the subsidies, substantial

:03:44.:03:47.

subsidies, wind turbines are not viable. Local communities will be

:03:48.:03:53.

delighted if subsidies are withdrawn. The big argument is the

:03:54.:03:58.

economic argument. They do not deliver to significant CO2

:03:59.:04:04.

reductions. This is an industry which will continue to divide

:04:05.:04:09.

opinion. Today's announcement has managed to give hope to those both

:04:10.:04:14.

against and for green energy. I'm joined in the studio by Tim

:04:15.:04:18.

Iredale. How has this change in support for wind energy been

:04:19.:04:23.

received in Westminster? I think many MPs will be delighted,

:04:24.:04:27.

especially in Lincolnshire, where they always complain that postbag

:04:28.:04:35.

powerful of complex from and `` I think many MPs will be delighted,

:04:36.:04:39.

especially in Lincolnshire, where a lot of people complain about wind

:04:40.:04:52.

farms. More announcements tomorrow in the Autumn statement. What can we

:04:53.:04:55.

expect? We know a lot already. We had this

:04:56.:05:02.

announcement on infrastructure. If you break it down, there is little

:05:03.:05:08.

specifically for our part of the world. One Hull MP today questioned

:05:09.:05:16.

why the, was committed to spending ?1 billion to extend the Northern

:05:17.:05:18.

line on the Underground would not spend a fraction of that

:05:19.:05:21.

electrifying the Hull to celebrate railway link. There is a proposal on

:05:22.:05:27.

the table that would do that, from first Hull trends. It would cost 90

:05:28.:05:33.

formally part of private money. It would need to be rubber`stamped by

:05:34.:05:39.

the Treasury. That could be something that Chancellor pulls out

:05:40.:05:42.

of his hat borrow. We want to hear from you on this

:05:43.:05:46.

story. Do you welcome the decision to cut the support for wind turbines

:05:47.:05:50.

on shore, maybe you think that will mean fewer wind farms being built?

:05:51.:05:55.

Or do you think extra support for offshore wind will boost jobs in the

:05:56.:05:57.

industry? A Government minister has been

:05:58.:06:18.

questioning health officials from Hull and The East Riding about local

:06:19.:06:21.

support for young people with mental health problems. Two families also

:06:22.:06:30.

had a chance to talk to Norman Lamb about their experiences of mental

:06:31.:06:33.

health care including a journey for treatment of more than 100 miles

:06:34.:06:36.

because the local residential unit had been closed. The meeting was

:06:37.:06:40.

prompted by MP Alan Johnson. He's now hopeful residential care will be

:06:41.:06:50.

returned to the city. This teenager from Hull is one of an

:06:51.:06:53.

increasing number who's had to be treated at mental health units far

:06:54.:06:59.

away from home. We have replaced her voice to protect her identity. I

:07:00.:07:02.

still have nightmares about it sometimes. They went very nice to

:07:03.:07:06.

me. I used to cry every night for my mum. It follows the closure of the

:07:07.:07:16.

residential unit at the West End Centre in Hull. In October Alan

:07:17.:07:19.

Johnson raised the issue in the Commons. In response Care Minister

:07:20.:07:22.

Norman Lamb called today's meeting. He's known to be sympathetic too

:07:23.:07:25.

mental health provision, calling it the Cinderella service of the NHS.

:07:26.:07:29.

This mum told him that when her teenage daughter suffered a serious

:07:30.:07:31.

episode last week the police were called. My daughter was wrestled to

:07:32.:07:44.

the floor and put in handcuffs. People who knew what they were

:07:45.:07:48.

doing, that an unnecessary drama would not have happened. But health

:07:49.:07:52.

officials insist there simply isn't the demand for a 24/7 service for

:07:53.:07:55.

young people. A statement from NHS England today said they're now

:07:56.:07:58.

"providing an enhanced community service and extended day care and

:07:59.:08:02.

treatment provision." Alan Johnson says Norman Lamb was impressed by

:08:03.:08:11.

their arguments. I think they made a powerful case. I think he was

:08:12.:08:16.

impressed by the fact that it is costing money to send kids and their

:08:17.:08:20.

parents and clinicians miles away to be treated. Department of Health

:08:21.:08:24.

officials said tonight they want young people with mental health

:08:25.:08:29.

problems to be supported closer to home. Local families say this could

:08:30.:08:35.

mean residential care could be reinstated in the area.

:08:36.:08:40.

We will follow that story. A man has died following a caravan

:08:41.:08:49.

fire in Hull. Firefighters were called to a business on Crowle

:08:50.:08:53.

Street in the East of the city at nine o'clock this morning. After

:08:54.:08:57.

putting out the fire, they found the body of a man inside a caravan. An

:08:58.:09:00.

investigation is now under way. Plans to develop an area south west

:09:01.:09:04.

of Lincoln have been described as "off the scale" in terms of anything

:09:05.:09:09.

the city council has done before. The ?250 million plan would see

:09:10.:09:12.

3,000 new homes built in the Skellingthorpe Road area known as

:09:13.:09:15.

Swanpool. Concerns over flooding have prevented developments in the

:09:16.:09:18.

past, but the council says it has measures to address concerns and the

:09:19.:09:21.

Environment Agency has removed its objection. It is off the scale. In

:09:22.:09:33.

terms of the importance, Lincoln frankly cannot afford those not to

:09:34.:09:38.

provide this level of housing and employment for generations to come.

:09:39.:09:43.

This is the only site that can help achieve this.

:09:44.:09:46.

The minor injuries unit at East Riding Community Hospital near

:09:47.:09:48.

Beverley is to extend its opening hours. As part of a six`month trial

:09:49.:09:56.

which begins on Saturday it will operate between nine and six over

:09:57.:10:00.

weekends and bank holidays. The NHS trust hopes it will help stop

:10:01.:10:02.

unnecessary visits to Accident and Emergency, especially during the

:10:03.:10:07.

busy winter months. Still ahead tonight: After the

:10:08.:10:10.

controversial one`way system is scrapped, traders prepare for

:10:11.:10:18.

Lincoln's Christmas Market. The Hollywood star heading back to

:10:19.:10:19.

Grimsby. People living on the East Coast have

:10:20.:10:32.

been warned to expect possible flooding over the next 48 hours. A

:10:33.:10:36.

forecast of strong winds and high tides have prompted the Environment

:10:37.:10:40.

Agency to warn of possible coastal flooding in East Yorkshire and

:10:41.:10:42.

Lincolnshire, and some rail operators are already amending

:10:43.:10:45.

services. Phillip Norton is live for us in Hornsea tonight. Phil, what

:10:46.:10:56.

sort of disruption can we expect? Well, Peter, it's really more of a

:10:57.:10:59.

warning to be prepared as gale force winds and large waves combine with

:11:00.:11:03.

high tides over the next 48 hours ` and what the Environment Agency

:11:04.:11:06.

describes as a large surge tomorrow and into Friday. They say this

:11:07.:11:10.

brings a risk of significant coastal flooding particularly at high tide.

:11:11.:11:18.

Here in Hornsea tomorrow, high tide will be in the evening just before

:11:19.:11:21.

five to six, while its at six minutes past seven in Grimsby, and

:11:22.:11:33.

Skegness at 7.37pm. On Friday morning, those high tides will be at

:11:34.:11:36.

half past six here in Hornsea, 7.45am in Grimsby, and 12 minutes

:11:37.:11:39.

past eight in the morning at Skegness. But high winds and rain

:11:40.:11:42.

from tomorrow morning means there's already been some changes when it

:11:43.:11:45.

comes to transport, especially for anyone heading north tomorrow on the

:11:46.:11:48.

trains. First Transpennine Express has suspended services between York

:11:49.:11:51.

and Newcastle until at least 2pm tomorrow East Coast, which operates

:11:52.:11:54.

services between London and Scotland, is also expecting

:11:55.:11:56.

disruption and says tickets for tomorrow will now also be valid for

:11:57.:12:00.

travel on Friday. Also tonight, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is advising

:12:01.:12:03.

anyone of thinking of visiting the Spurn National Nature Reserve

:12:04.:12:05.

tomorrow that they will have to leave the site by 3pm. It will then

:12:06.:12:10.

remain closed to visitors until the situation is reviewed on Friday.

:12:11.:12:15.

People should check the Environment Agency website or follow them on

:12:16.:12:18.

Twitter and the #floodaware hashtag for the latest information.

:12:19.:12:20.

For more information on the potential flooding, let's speak to

:12:21.:12:23.

Innes Thompson from the Environment Agency. Good evening. When will you

:12:24.:12:33.

be able to tell which areas will be most at risk?

:12:34.:12:38.

The message we're giving at the moment is most of the east coast of

:12:39.:12:42.

Scotland and England is at risk from some form or another of flooding.

:12:43.:12:49.

What should people be doing what they do to prepare? The Environment

:12:50.:12:55.

Agency's main message is one of personal safety. Waves are very

:12:56.:13:01.

powerful, I know they are spectacular to watch but we are

:13:02.:13:04.

asking people to stand back, stand well away and keep well away from

:13:05.:13:12.

areas are at risk. Coastal footpaths, top of the cliffs and

:13:13.:13:20.

harbour areas. Do people to lead to do something to protect their homes

:13:21.:13:26.

if they are close to the sea? `` do people need to do something to

:13:27.:13:29.

protect their homes if they are close to the sea. With the combines

:13:30.:13:37.

low`pressure system and very strong winds, and the large waves, there

:13:38.:13:46.

could be areas of flooding up and Danny East coast. We are constantly

:13:47.:13:50.

monitoring it. We have issued general alerts. As we watch the

:13:51.:13:55.

developing picture, we will be able to advise more. Thank you for the

:13:56.:13:57.

latest advice. We can get the weather now. Yes,

:13:58.:14:09.

Peter, the Met Office upgraded their warning to an amber warning. That

:14:10.:14:15.

means widespread, severe gales, with gusts of 60, possibly 70 mph. The

:14:16.:14:22.

peak gusts are expected from mid`morning to meet afternoon

:14:23.:14:26.

tomorrow, with peaks around midday. That will cause problems on the

:14:27.:14:31.

Humber Bridge, the use Bridge and anywhere that goes north to south.

:14:32.:14:38.

Otherwise, we will have rain spreading through. Because of some

:14:39.:14:48.

concern. By Friday, are a lot quieter. There might be a bit of

:14:49.:14:55.

drizzle on Friday night but Friday looks much better today. It has been

:14:56.:15:00.

a lovely day today with a lots of sunshine. Before the wind picks up

:15:01.:15:06.

tonight, there is the risk of a ground Frost through the course of

:15:07.:15:12.

this evening. Bit of patchy rain perhaps in northern parts of East

:15:13.:15:49.

Yorkshire and ground Frost later. The wind begins to ease through

:15:50.:15:52.

tomorrow night. That's the forecast. One of the joys of being in during

:15:53.:16:03.

the day is seen the lunchtime forecast. Look at this. You can't

:16:04.:16:20.

even spell your own name. For they week. See you tomorrow.

:16:21.:16:23.

It's feared that a storm surge during bad weather overnight could

:16:24.:16:26.

mean disaster to hundreds of seal pups on the Lincolnshire coast. Two

:16:27.:16:31.

years ago, dozens were killed at the Donna Nook nature reserve when a

:16:32.:16:34.

freak tide separated pups from their mothers. Visitors are being asked to

:16:35.:16:44.

stay away until the bad weather has passed. Amanda White has more.

:16:45.:16:47.

Around 1,500 seal pups have been born on this nature reserve so far

:16:48.:16:51.

this autumn. It's a two`month spectacle that brings visitors in

:16:52.:16:55.

their droves. These books are not quite three weeks old. `` pups.

:16:56.:17:05.

Many of the pups have already embarked on their lives in the North

:17:06.:17:09.

Sea, but for those that remain, the overnight forecast could spell

:17:10.:17:18.

trouble. High winds and a high tide could see a repeat of the tidal

:17:19.:17:22.

surge that led to dozens of pups being killed two years ago. We will

:17:23.:17:32.

build to see how high the water is coming in. There are areas of higher

:17:33.:17:37.

grounds that the seals were built his room two. If it is much higher,

:17:38.:17:42.

there are some small gate we would be able to open in an emergency to

:17:43.:17:49.

allow the seals into the sand dunes. The weather today was perfect, and

:17:50.:17:52.

Tony was making the most of his trip from Blackpool. There is nowhere I

:17:53.:17:58.

know of where you can get so close seals like this. It is gorgeous. The

:17:59.:18:09.

black one is the all`time favourite. The most superb coat. The Visitors

:18:10.:18:14.

are asked to stay away for the next few days in case the seals have to

:18:15.:18:17.

come beyond these fences. Next week is the best time to catch

:18:18.:18:32.

a glimpse of this year's pups. Thank you to everyone who's been in

:18:33.:18:35.

touch about the warnings that lives are being put at risk because

:18:36.:18:39.

doctors don't have a proper command of English. One doctor told Look

:18:40.:18:42.

North that the NHS is employing staff from EU countries and not

:18:43.:18:45.

testing their language skills. The General Medical Council says current

:18:46.:18:48.

law means they can't test their English, but there are plans to

:18:49.:18:50.

change that. In less than 24 hours' time, the

:18:51.:19:42.

streets of Lincoln will be packed with visiting the annual Christmas

:19:43.:19:45.

Market. Businesses in the city say they're looking forward to the event

:19:46.:19:48.

now a controversial one`way system for pedestrians has been scrapped.

:19:49.:19:52.

Some say it cost them thousands and are pleased the Council listened to

:19:53.:19:54.

their concerns. Gemma Dawson reports.

:19:55.:19:56.

By this time tomorrow, Lincoln's famous Christmas Market will be open

:19:57.:20:09.

for business. Organisers hope we'll be seeing similar scenes to this as

:20:10.:20:13.

thousands of people descend on the city. For traders, that's meant a

:20:14.:20:16.

busy day getting prepared. It is massive, absolutely massive. We do

:20:17.:20:23.

among's takings in just four days. It brings much`needed revenue into

:20:24.:20:28.

the business. It is without doubt the busiest four days of the year.

:20:29.:20:31.

The market attracts around 250,000 people. But this year, return

:20:32.:20:35.

visitors will notice one main difference. The controversial one`

:20:36.:20:47.

way system has been scrapped. Last year, visitors to the market could

:20:48.:20:50.

only walk in this direction, past these shops. They then had to follow

:20:51.:21:03.

a huge one`way loop around the market, and traders here say it

:21:04.:21:06.

proved costly. It put a few people off. Hopefully, now people can

:21:07.:21:12.

wonder where they like, they will come back. It was a big impact. I

:21:13.:21:23.

suppose I had to try something for health and safety reasons, but it

:21:24.:21:31.

didn't work. What is important is customers often, ran a second time

:21:32.:21:38.

and by the second time. So this year people will be a to move more

:21:39.:21:42.

freely, with just a one`way through the castle.

:21:43.:21:43.

Tonight, final preparations before visitors start arriving at midday

:21:44.:21:58.

tomorrow. Good luck to everyone involved and if you are going, enjoy

:21:59.:22:00.

it. More than 100,000 people have

:22:01.:22:03.

watched a film created as part of Hull's bid to be the UK City of

:22:04.:22:08.

Culture 2017. And as you The film was played to the City of Culture

:22:09.:22:12.

judges as part of the city's final presentation. It's been watched by

:22:13.:22:15.

people in 150 countries, including Spain, Germany and South Africa.

:22:16.:22:23.

100,000 people have seen that. Hull City will face top of the table

:22:24.:22:27.

Arsenal tonight in the Premier League. The Tigers had a convincing

:22:28.:22:30.

victory over Liverpool on Sunday and will look to continue that form when

:22:31.:22:34.

they play at the Emirates. Manager Steve Bruce says it'll be a tough

:22:35.:22:39.

match. They are as good as anybody at the moment. It is so difficult to

:22:40.:22:55.

set up against them. You can hear full match commentary

:22:56.:22:59.

on BBC Radio Humberside tonight. Build up is under way in Sportstalk.

:23:00.:23:10.

The match kicks off at 7.45. A hatrick from Dayle Suthell means

:23:11.:23:13.

Grimsby Town are through to the next round of the FA Trophy. The Mariners

:23:14.:23:20.

beat Coalville Town 3`0 in their first round replay. They will now

:23:21.:23:28.

face Barnet in next round. Earlier this week, we were talking

:23:29.:23:32.

about the impact of immigration on parts of Lincolnshire when

:23:33.:23:34.

restrictions on people from Romania and Bulgaria travelling to the UK

:23:35.:23:37.

end next month. BBC Radio Lincolnshire's breakfast show will
