England's road to recovery. There is more throughout the evening on the

:00:00.:00:00.

BBC News Channel. We're back with the late

:00:00.:00:07.

Good evening and welcome. People from a village badly affected

:00:08.:00:12.

by a tidal surge three weeks ago are about to complete a charity walk.

:00:13.:00:15.

They were aiming to raise hundreds of pounds for flood victims in South

:00:16.:00:21.

Ferriby. Paul Lead has the story. When the surge struck three weeks

:00:22.:00:24.

ago, many homes on the banks of the Humber were under water. South

:00:25.:00:29.

Ferriby was badly hit. But it has brought people together to help.

:00:30.:00:34.

This the start point of a charity walk this morning. It's brilliant.

:00:35.:00:43.

These people are prepared to give up some of the Christmas holidays and

:00:44.:00:46.

people here have Christmas cancelled. My grandma has happily

:00:47.:00:53.

affected by the floods so I'm doing this to help others. It's a chance

:00:54.:00:59.

to help the community and people that have been affected by the

:01:00.:01:00.

floods. Their route through towns and

:01:01.:01:03.

villages in North Lincolnshire took them to Appleby, Broughton and

:01:04.:01:06.

Brigg, and people who'd heard about the floods were quick to donate

:01:07.:01:09.

cash. It will be months before all the homes are repaired, and they'll

:01:10.:01:13.

be keeping their eyes on high tides predicted next week. But in a

:01:14.:01:16.

crisis, they now know they have neighbours they can count on.

:01:17.:01:27.

Strong winds have caused some problems on the roads. It's thought

:01:28.:01:31.

a gust of wind played a part in this lorry spilling its load of tonnes of

:01:32.:01:35.

cat litter on the Immingham junction of the A180. Both the Humber Bridge

:01:36.:01:39.

and the Ouse Bridge were closed to high`sided vehicles during the day.

:01:40.:01:42.

Air display teams from around the world are being invited to help

:01:43.:01:44.

celebrate the Lincolnshire`based Red Arrows' 50th display season. Events

:01:45.:01:47.

are being planned for 2014 to celebrate the milestone, including

:01:48.:01:50.

displays at the Royal International Air Tattoo in Gloucestershire and at

:01:51.:01:52.

the Waddington Air Show. ?10,000 is being spent buying the

:01:53.:01:56.

latest technology to loan to elderly people in East Yorkshire. It's hoped

:01:57.:01:59.

if they learn to use the tablet devices, they will be able to get

:02:00.:02:03.

access to health advice, as well as keep in touch with family and

:02:04.:02:12.

friends, as Amy Cole reports. Since October, this group of pensioners

:02:13.:02:16.

has been learning how to use a tablet. Today they are being taught

:02:17.:02:19.

to make a video, something they've never done before. Where going to be

:02:20.:02:34.

very busy. Peter Copley is aged four years old. The tablet is taking time

:02:35.:02:42.

for used to. You could just walk around with the tablet and to show

:02:43.:02:47.

it to the family so they can have a conversation with the person at the

:02:48.:02:52.

other end. The rest of the class gets 13 to see how it works.

:02:53.:02:56.

And a chance to have some fun with it. `` their chance. The hope is

:02:57.:03:04.

that eventually, they use the tablets at home to video call family

:03:05.:03:11.

and friends. My son and family live in Cheshire and my grandson is

:03:12.:03:15.

particularly competent at iPads and the like so I shall enjoy being able

:03:16.:03:22.

to compact `` contact him. Last week, I was reading a book, which

:03:23.:03:30.

was great and it's great that I can enlarge the figures and letters. The

:03:31.:03:36.

pilot is a joint partnership between GPs and the council. We've got a

:03:37.:03:44.

vast area of thousands of square miles and rural projects `` villages

:03:45.:03:47.

and this project makes it easier to connect people. The group will be

:03:48.:03:54.

encouraged to download apps to help with their health care needs and

:03:55.:03:58.

interact with their GPs. Hull City could be without their

:03:59.:04:01.

goalkeeper Alan McGregor and David Meyler for the team's home game

:04:02.:04:04.

against Fulham tomorrow at the KC Stadium. Both were injured in the

:04:05.:04:07.

game against Manchester United, which the Tigers were at one stage

:04:08.:04:10.

leading 2`0. However, a James Chester own`goal made it 3`2 to give

:04:11.:04:19.

the visitors victory. Very good. They had their chances but they

:04:20.:04:23.

played really well. The buyers did great today. I've lost all respect

:04:24.:04:33.

for Manchester United. This is a ridiculous schedule that we have to

:04:34.:04:37.

play when there is so much at stake but we'll have to recover in time

:04:38.:04:41.

for Saturday. Scunthorpe United were denied a win

:04:42.:04:44.

late in stoppage time when Bury scored to make it a draw. Sam

:04:45.:04:48.

Winnall tapped this in to put the Iron 1`0 up. But after firing in a

:04:49.:04:52.

second, he was then sent off after a second booking for the way he

:04:53.:04:56.

celebrated the goal. Bury came back and levelled the game just before

:04:57.:04:59.

the whistle. Third`placed Scunthorpe are away at second`placed Oxford

:05:00.:05:02.

United on Sunday. Now the weather forecast with Paul

:05:03.:05:08.

Hudson. It's been very gusty. There were

:05:09.:05:19.

gusts of 75 miles an hour earlier on. Tomorrow, south`westerly gales

:05:20.:05:24.

were moderate overnights and they will be squally showers which will

:05:25.:05:30.

die away. Watch out for icy patches. Lows of two Celsius in rural

:05:31.:05:35.

locations. Less windy but still quite breezy. A day of isolated

:05:36.:05:40.

showers but most places try and find with a good deal of sunshine. Top

:05:41.:05:47.

temperatures coming in at six Celsius. Widespread frost on

:05:48.:05:51.

Saturday. Sunday looks dry with some sunshine but strong winds and

:05:52.:05:55.

further heavy `` have you went to come. We are back just after 10pm

:05:56.:06:00.

this evening with a further update. Goodbye.

:06:01.:06:09.

Good evening. What a week it has been, a stormy start, a law through

:06:10.:06:17.

Christmas, then a wild end to the week, had to keep up, isn't
