:00:00.:00:10.

Good evening. Thank you for joining us. The headlines. Claims from flood

victims their homes were sacrificed. This village got the brunt of it.

:00:24.:00:27.

Counting the cost ` the businesses that say it will take them months to

:00:28.:00:31.

recover from the impact of the floods. Personally, it has been

:00:32.:00:38.

heartbreaking, emotional, tiling and on a business level it has been

:00:39.:00:43.

completely devastating. Calls for calm from the community

Was it a success? Traders disagree with claims that the Lincoln

Christmas Market was the best ever. And eyeing the top of the half of

:00:56.:00:59.

the table ` Hull City seek their second away victory of the season

:01:00.:01:08.

against Swansea. No extreme weather this week

:01:09.:01:12.

thankfully. Much more settled outlook, details coming up shortly.

:01:13.:01:22.

Good evening. Some flood victims whose homes were devastated by the

:01:23.:01:30.

tidal surge say they feel that their role `` properties were sacrificed

:01:31.:01:37.

to protect others. Residents in South Ferriby say the worst of ``

:01:38.:01:42.

they suffered whereas Hull was protected by the tidal barrier. In

:01:43.:01:47.

Boston, residents have been told they will have to wait until 2019

:01:48.:01:51.

for a new flood defence barrier to be completed. From there, Anne`Marie

:01:52.:01:59.

Tasker reports. You can see where the flood water came in. Assessing

:02:00.:02:03.

the damage, after the tidal surge swept through homes in South

:02:04.:02:05.

Ferriby. People here have been forced to throw out televisions,

:02:06.:02:08.

carpets, sofas. Some say they've lost everything. We all have

:02:09.:02:16.

terrible stories to tell. We didn't know where our mum was for quite

:02:17.:02:24.

some time. This was Andrews Road on Friday. Today, they're still

:02:25.:02:30.

cleaning away the mud ` outside and inside homes. This morning, North

:02:31.:02:35.

Lincolnshire's council leader came to see the damage ` and offer

:02:36.:02:38.

residents council tax relief and small emergency grants. ?300 might

:02:39.:02:46.

just help with 12 initial things. I was talking to a lady there and all

:02:47.:02:50.

her Christmas presents have gone. She has no shoes for the children so

:02:51.:02:54.

?300 will help a little bit. Today, teams from the Environment Agency

:02:55.:02:57.

continued to check flood defences for damage. We have to learn from

:02:58.:03:04.

the event that took place. There will be a lot of engineering

:03:05.:03:07.

calculations that would go ahead around making sure we have the right

:03:08.:03:12.

sort of defences. We have to be careful not to push the problem

:03:13.:03:17.

elsewhere, we have to have a considered approach. But residents

:03:18.:03:20.

are now asking questions about why the water flowed over South

:03:21.:03:24.

Ferriby's defences. It was exceptional circumstances, but Hull

:03:25.:03:30.

has been protected to a large extent which is why this village got the

:03:31.:03:33.

brunt of it. Indeed Hull was protected ` and this is the

:03:34.:03:37.

structure that did that. The environment secretary says 130,000

:03:38.:03:42.

homes were saved from flooding when the whole tidal barrier was lowered

:03:43.:03:48.

on Thursday. People living in Boston face a longer wait for similar

:03:49.:03:51.

protection. As residents clean up in Boston, some are asking why a

:03:52.:03:54.

planned flood barrier won't be completed until 2019. And in North

:03:55.:03:58.

Norfolk, they're asking what can be done to stop future flooding.

:03:59.:04:02.

Visiting there today, the Prime Minister said the government is

:04:03.:04:08.

looking at making improvements. There is always more that can be

:04:09.:04:13.

done. There was lessons to learn, whether that is personal flood

:04:14.:04:17.

defences for householders, new flood defence schemes with government

:04:18.:04:23.

funding, interworking between the emergency services and local

:04:24.:04:26.

authorities, I'm sure there is always lessons to learn. And as the

:04:27.:04:29.

clear up continues, learning those lessons is something many residents

:04:30.:04:39.

will be calling for. I am joined by Mark Robinson from

:04:40.:04:42.

the Environment Agency. Good evening. Did people pay attention to

:04:43.:04:49.

the warnings and do it were told? We just have to look at our lessons

:04:50.:04:53.

learned. A lot of warnings went out. This was about being prepared.

:04:54.:05:03.

If we look to the majority of those people, they paid attention to the

:05:04.:05:07.

warning and took appropriate action. What you say to people like in South

:05:08.:05:13.

Ferriby and other area to feel they have been sacrificed? First of all,

:05:14.:05:19.

it is devastated when people get impacted by flooding. Our thoughts

:05:20.:05:24.

are with them but when we look at the overall defences around the

:05:25.:05:28.

Humber Estuary, they are too good standard. We work in partnership

:05:29.:05:35.

with the Met Office and the flood broadcasting centre and we had the

:05:36.:05:39.

results of the high tides coming through on the Thursday evening. We

:05:40.:05:44.

were expecting to get some spree in the warning was issued so people had

:05:45.:05:50.

to take appropriate action. It is not possible to protect everyone,

:05:51.:05:55.

but our priorities made were some people are protected more than

:05:56.:06:00.

others? This is all about government finances. The government is saying

:06:01.:06:05.

that for every pound spent on flood defences, we are reducing flood

:06:06.:06:11.

risk. Obviously larger communities will get more of return for their

:06:12.:06:16.

money. That is where some of the priorities are levelled at. People

:06:17.:06:20.

in Boston say they are frustrated it is taking so long, why is it taking

:06:21.:06:27.

so long for the flood harrier? We have been working on the barrier for

:06:28.:06:31.

a number of years. We have lots of processes to go through. We think,

:06:32.:06:36.

with all our partners working together, we will start construction

:06:37.:06:44.

around 2016 or 2017. The Prime Minister said there was lessons to

:06:45.:06:48.

be learned, but the Environment Agency learn any lessons? We know

:06:49.:06:55.

that the events and the level that came in was being followed, when we

:06:56.:07:00.

get through the recovery stage we would take that intelligence and sit

:07:01.:07:03.

down and obviously there will be lessons to learn and we will put the

:07:04.:07:08.

appropriate actions in place. Thank you very much.

:07:09.:07:13.

Businesses affected by the flooding are counting the cost of losing out

:07:14.:07:17.

on the lucrative Christmas trade. And for some the damage will take

:07:18.:07:20.

them months to recover from or could even lead to ruin. Our Business

:07:21.:07:28.

Correspondent Paul Murphy reports. High tide this morning in

:07:29.:07:31.

Bridlington was back to its normal level at businesses on the seafront

:07:32.:07:36.

have many months `` difficult months ahead before normality returns. It

:07:37.:07:43.

is a complete mess. Two deep freezes overturned, the counter overturned.

:07:44.:07:47.

Businesses here echo what others have said along the coast, the surge

:07:48.:07:53.

took them by surprise. I think it could everyone out even know lots of

:07:54.:07:58.

people have lived in the harbour for years. It was so calm, there was no

:07:59.:08:04.

storm. We have seen lots of hard weather in the past but it was

:08:05.:08:10.

really calm. This hotel has spectacular Humber views. Now they

:08:11.:08:17.

only serve as a reminder of an event they described him as a catastrophe.

:08:18.:08:23.

On a business level it has been completely devastating. On a

:08:24.:08:27.

staffing level, we have no staff at the moment. We're not open. We have

:08:28.:08:35.

no phone lines, no internet. We have nothing to work with. Staff at this

:08:36.:08:41.

retail park up in what King around the shop to get his shops reopened.

:08:42.:08:48.

`` around the clock. It is not just retailers who have been affected.

:08:49.:08:55.

The giant cement plants in South Ferriby has suspended production

:08:56.:09:02.

while the damage is investigated. Some businesses make more than half

:09:03.:09:05.

of their annual income during the festive period. For them, the timing

:09:06.:09:10.

of the surge could not have been worse will stop and have obviously

:09:11.:09:15.

had to cancel orders for the next few weeks. I just do not know how

:09:16.:09:21.

long it is going to take to get the shop up and running again. East

:09:22.:09:27.

Coast businesses will now be hoping for a speedy response from insurance

:09:28.:09:32.

companies as every lost day cost them even more. Clearly one night of

:09:33.:09:36.

flooding was still have an impact for many months to come.

:09:37.:09:43.

Paul is in South Ferriby at the moment. How much is the damage

:09:44.:09:50.

likely to cost? The cost to businesses is something as small

:09:51.:09:54.

army of loss adjusters is probably trying to work out. For businesses

:09:55.:09:59.

of all shapes and sizes this has been devastating. The biggest cement

:10:00.:10:06.

works, to the smallest key lock `` kiosk on the seafront. That is also

:10:07.:10:12.

a cost to the reputation of the wider community. They have been

:10:13.:10:17.

flooded and their vulnerability has been exposed. Some will argue that

:10:18.:10:22.

this is a genuine deterrent to inward investment. Thank you very

:10:23.:10:28.

much indeed. Plenty of people have been in touch about the events.

:10:29.:10:32.

Thank you for all the messages. We want to hear from you on this

:10:33.:11:08.

story, are you a business that has had to close because of flood

:11:09.:11:12.

damage? Do you think more could have been done to protect homes, what is

:11:13.:11:14.

your story and your experience? Lincolnshire's new permanent chief

:11:15.:11:40.

constable will be Neil Rhodes after the police and crime panel confirmed

:11:41.:11:44.

they support the decision to appoint him. He'd been temporary chief

:11:45.:11:48.

constable and the only applicant. He was suspended by the crime

:11:49.:11:50.

commissioner, Alan Hardwick, in February but was reinstated after a

:11:51.:11:55.

judge ruled the decision perverse. Mr Rhodes was also cleared of any

:11:56.:11:59.

wrong doing in a separate investigation.

:12:00.:12:03.

A man's been jailed after an explosion at the Bourne offices of

:12:04.:12:08.

the Conservative MP Nick Boles. Paul Liverseidge admitted possessing an

:12:09.:12:10.

explosive substance and was jailed for 15 months at Lincoln Crown

:12:11.:12:17.

Court. People are being asked not to go to

:12:18.:12:22.

hospital in Lincoln and less than absolutely necessary. Managers at

:12:23.:12:28.

the hospital say they are extremely busy and ask patients to get advice

:12:29.:12:36.

from their GP. The religious leader of the whole

:12:37.:12:40.

mosque could lose the sight in one night after he was attacked just

:12:41.:12:43.

over a week ago. Imam Hafiz Salik was driving home on Saturday evening

:12:44.:12:49.

with his wife and daughter when he was stopped and hit in the face. He

:12:50.:12:56.

and his sons are calling for calm but a national organisation says it

:12:57.:13:00.

is concerned about the number of physical attacks on most runs. `` on

:13:01.:13:11.

Muslims. Beaten up in the street. After the blood was coming out like

:13:12.:13:13.

a tart. It was like water. Tap. I try to get away from them. He

:13:14.:13:31.

was driving his family home along Spring Bank West when the attack

:13:32.:13:35.

happened. It was here the attackers ran out, two men and one woman stop

:13:36.:13:39.

one of the mainly in front of the car. It was then that he got up

:13:40.:13:48.

slowly, what ran to the car door slowly and punched Imam Hafiz Salik

:13:49.:13:55.

in the face. I think the doctors are seeing the assailant might have used

:13:56.:13:59.

some sort of ins don't just by the way he was cut. `` some sort of

:14:00.:14:04.

instrument. He cannot see through his eye at the moment so fingers

:14:05.:14:10.

crossed. Although there is no suggestion the attack was racial or

:14:11.:14:14.

religiously motivated, the police are keeping an open mind. The victim

:14:15.:14:19.

was wearing traditional dress but he was in a card and it was night`time

:14:20.:14:25.

so for a person to have seen that in target that, it is difficult to see

:14:26.:14:30.

how that could have occurred. Nothing of a racist nature was said

:14:31.:14:36.

during the attack. He read the mosque, worshippers are concerned

:14:37.:14:40.

about what happened. They were worried that is why we address this

:14:41.:14:45.

issue on the sermon on Friday. The tool the community what is going on.

:14:46.:14:53.

`` week told the community. We told them not to take the law into their

:14:54.:14:56.

own hands and we told them we don't know why the attack happened full

:14:57.:15:07.

top ``. We are now getting incidents where aggression is far more within

:15:08.:15:12.

the incident is self. Threat to kill, threats to harm, aggression

:15:13.:15:16.

where people feel really frightened that their lives might be at stake.

:15:17.:15:22.

Police are appealing for witnesses of the silent attack to come

:15:23.:15:27.

forward. We wish him well and we will

:15:28.:15:31.

continue to follow that story. Thank you for watching. Still ahead. Was

:15:32.:15:43.

it a success? Some people disagree that it was the best market ever.

:15:44.:15:48.

Hull seek their second win of the season as they travel to Swansea.

:15:49.:15:57.

There have been some fantastic sunsets over the last few days. Lots

:15:58.:16:02.

of pictures then. We have three tonight. Immingham by Linda Ladlow.

:16:03.:16:11.

A nice photograph there. Middle Rasen by Alistair Norburn. Hessle

:16:12.:16:28.

foreshore by Ian Greenwood. Many people spotted you on a day off,

:16:29.:16:31.

shopping at the Christmas market on Saturday. Did not see him put his

:16:32.:16:47.

hand in his pocket ones. Once. You would like it there, Peter. The

:16:48.:16:52.

linking Christmas market was great, we had a fantastic time.

:16:53.:16:59.

Rather cloudy with some sunshine to come tomorrow. The wind up from the

:17:00.:17:04.

subtropics which is why it is so mild. The cloud has come and gone

:17:05.:17:10.

and that will be the same tomorrow. Large amounts of cloud at times.

:17:11.:17:16.

They give you is is it will be fairly settled for the next few

:17:17.:17:24.

days. `` the good news is. Tonight, dry with variable amounts of cloud

:17:25.:17:29.

perhaps a touch of ground frost but no problems. Temperatures around

:17:30.:17:37.

four or five degrees. There is just a chance of a touch of ground frost.

:17:38.:17:43.

High water times... I think tomorrow is another pleasant December day,

:17:44.:17:57.

dry with variable cloud. There will be some breaks in the cloud, some

:17:58.:18:04.

sunny spells and alike Southwest please so temperatures will be a

:18:05.:18:08.

little above average. `` and other light Southwest please. ``breeze.

:18:09.:18:19.

Temperatures slightly above average for this time of year. There could

:18:20.:18:24.

be some mist and fog and low cloud first thing on Wednesday morning. It

:18:25.:18:30.

should clear most places and we see sunny spells developing. Freddie

:18:31.:18:36.

looks fine as well `` Thursday looks fine as well. Cloudy on Friday with

:18:37.:18:42.

the risk of patchy rain. Address your complaints to Peter Hanson.

:18:43.:18:49.

I know you are very tight. Say nothing. I will shut up. Some

:18:50.:19:03.

traders have told Look North they think this year's Lincoln Christmas

:19:04.:19:06.

Market was quieter than previous years ` with fewer visitors.

:19:07.:19:10.

But organisers claim it was the best year yet. It finished last night.

:19:11.:19:18.

Thousands of people visited Lincoln ` over the last four days. Here for

:19:19.:19:21.

this. The city's famous Christmas Market. I like it here because I

:19:22.:19:30.

have never been here before. It is really good, better than last year.

:19:31.:19:35.

There is less crowds without the one`way system. It is the best one

:19:36.:19:42.

in the UK, it is fantastic. But the Market had a shaky start. Visitors

:19:43.:19:45.

stopped at the Castle gate. It's opening delayed by nearly five hours

:19:46.:19:52.

` due to strong winds on Thursday. Still organisers claim ` this was

:19:53.:19:55.

the best Market yet. But some traders told me they thought it

:19:56.:20:00.

seemed quieter than previous years. I think this year has been a good

:20:01.:20:07.

year, maybe not for the numbers, but when word gets around that we have

:20:08.:20:10.

got it right again, people will come back. It has not been quite so

:20:11.:20:18.

busy, but that has been great for people because they could stand and

:20:19.:20:21.

have a look instead of being swept along. The park`and`ride is 8% up on

:20:22.:20:28.

my steward so I think people spread out a little over the five days so

:20:29.:20:37.

wasn't so crowded. `` up on last year. Organisers will now review

:20:38.:20:40.

this year's event. And they'll be looking at the results from this `

:20:41.:20:44.

the largest`ever survey of visitors here. We hope to learn what people

:20:45.:20:47.

like about the market. We want to see what they would like to see

:20:48.:20:52.

improved. Traders spent the day dismantling their stalls. But first

:20:53.:20:54.

the clean`up here continues ` this lunchtime. With stalls being

:20:55.:20:57.

dismantled. Over the next few days this area of Lincoln will return to

:20:58.:21:01.

normal ` before planning begins for next year's Market.

:21:02.:21:05.

Plans for a new coal fired power station in Yorkshire have moved a

:21:06.:21:08.

step forward after the government promised more funding to the company

:21:09.:21:11.

behind the scheme. Ed Davey the Energy and Climate Change Secretary

:21:12.:21:14.

made the announcement as he visited Drax power station near Selby to

:21:15.:21:17.

officially open its new biomass plant. The ?2 billion coal`fired

:21:18.:21:22.

power station proposed for site would use the very latest carbon

:21:23.:21:24.

capture technology, where emissions are transported through a tunnel

:21:25.:21:27.

underground in East Yorkshire and into the north sea. This is good

:21:28.:21:39.

news for Yorkshire because the first carbon capture storage is being

:21:40.:21:45.

signed and that will bring investment in hundreds of millions

:21:46.:21:49.

of pounds that we can have another low carbon industry where the carbon

:21:50.:21:56.

is actually captured and stored under the North Sea safely.

:21:57.:22:01.

They were beaten to the City of Culture title so is Swansea ready to

:22:02.:22:05.

take revenge on Hull. Swansea City and Hull City meet tonight just ten

:22:06.:22:08.

years since they were both playing at the fourth level of English

:22:09.:22:12.

football. Our sports reporter Simon Clark takes a look at this tale of

:22:13.:22:21.

two cities. Swansea and Hull, one Welsh and one English but despite

:22:22.:22:26.

those differences the cities share a lot. Their population numbers are

:22:27.:22:33.

compatible and their grounds are similar and shared with their rugby

:22:34.:22:36.

neighbours. But one is a new City of Culture. Both clubs have had

:22:37.:22:43.

meteoric rises. I saw a documentary on them a couple of weeks ago and

:22:44.:22:49.

where they were ten years ago, it is remarkable what they have done and

:22:50.:22:53.

achieved. A big part in the back for all of them. Their play has not

:22:54.:23:02.

changed over the past 56 years. The way they pass the ball and move it,

:23:03.:23:09.

they create spaces. `` over the past five or six years. When we get hold

:23:10.:23:15.

of the ball we are able to keep it as well. Hull City played a

:23:16.:23:20.

considerable role in the history of Swansea six years ago which enabled

:23:21.:23:24.

Swansea to see in the football league. Who would've thought they

:23:25.:23:30.

would meet as mid`table rivals. In this battle of the two cities, it is

:23:31.:23:36.

currently Swansea nil, Hull one. They have two bind a second away win

:23:37.:23:43.

and so will have two play like the whole but played against Liverpool

:23:44.:23:49.

rather than the team that played against Crystal Palace.

:23:50.:23:52.

We'll have full commentary of Hull City's trip to Swansea. The build up

:23:53.:23:59.

is already underway on Sports Talk. Kick off is at 8pm.

:24:00.:24:11.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday for Grimsby Town season ticket holders

:24:12.:24:14.

wanting to watch their side's FA Cup match with Huddersfield Town next

:24:15.:24:20.

month. The Mariners reached the third round with a two`nil win over

:24:21.:24:24.

Northampton. It's Grimsby's second win over league opponents having

:24:25.:24:27.

beaten Scunthorpe in the first round.

:24:28.:24:32.

Grimsby's Strictly star Kevin Clifton and dance partner Susanna

:24:33.:24:35.

Reid have thanked the public for getting them through to the

:24:36.:24:38.

semi`finals of the competition. They received the lowest score on

:24:39.:24:41.

Saturday's show for this Argentine Tango, but were spared the dance off

:24:42.:24:44.

last night thanks to the public vote. Susanna and Kevin! If it was

:24:45.:25:04.

allowed ad like to go around to every single person who voted in
