back with the late news Hello and welcome to Look North.

:00:00.:00:11.

Farmers in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are asking party goers

:00:12.:00:14.

not to release sky lanterns this New Year's Eve. The small hot air

:00:15.:00:17.

balloons which are made of paper have been linked to fires and the

:00:18.:00:21.

death of livestock when the fallen litter is eaten by cattle. But

:00:22.:00:27.

unlike other countries, the Government hasn't imposed a ban.

:00:28.:00:33.

Linsey Smith reports. A spectacular skyline, or flying

:00:34.:00:40.

bonfires. These lanterns cause real concern to cattle farmers like Chris

:00:41.:00:45.

Hewis. I couldn't understand why they were all gathered together

:00:46.:00:48.

around the hedgerow, and what I found was these three sky lanterns

:00:49.:00:51.

that were trapped in the hedgerow there. I was alarmed cos it's fallen

:00:52.:00:57.

just 20 metres short of a straw stack, which would've gone up in

:00:58.:01:00.

flames. Chris is asking partygoers not to release them this New Year's

:01:01.:01:05.

Eve. Our neighbour lost a bull. After a wedding in the village,

:01:06.:01:09.

there was lots of sky lanterns sent off. Shortly afterwards, they lost a

:01:10.:01:13.

bull ` it died. The results of a postmortem showed that it had the

:01:14.:01:17.

wire from a sky lantern in it. Lanterns are not just a problem for

:01:18.:01:24.

cattle. A barn owl died in Gloucestershire after becoming

:01:25.:01:26.

entangled in the wire frame. Lanterns, on the left, have been

:01:27.:01:29.

mistaken for distress flares, on the right. It's caused the RNLI to rush

:01:30.:01:38.

to false alarms. And ?6 million worth of fire damage was caused at a

:01:39.:01:47.

recyling plant near Birmingham. Moments before it ignited, CCTV

:01:48.:01:50.

shows a sky lantern drifting into piles of plastic. They're very

:01:51.:01:53.

cheap, aren't they, they're, what, two for ?1, and they're sold as a

:01:54.:01:57.

way to make a wish, but frankly, the wish that we've got and that I hope

:01:58.:02:01.

now that everyone who's listening to this realises how dangerous they can

:02:02.:02:04.

be, the wish is that actually no`one will use them at New Year

:02:05.:02:08.

celebrations, and we can bring in a ban through district councils.

:02:09.:02:12.

Depsite these lanterns being banned in countries including Australia and

:02:13.:02:13.

Germany, Defra have told us: For Chris, New Year's Day will start

:02:14.:02:29.

with early checks to his land for lantern debris.

:02:30.:02:32.

At the moment, it's the only way to ensure his cattle don't get an extra

:02:33.:02:36.

meal which may be their last. A woman's died after being found

:02:37.:02:39.

with life`threatening injuries at a flat on Peel Place in Hull.

:02:40.:02:44.

23`year`old Rebecca Day was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary in the early

:02:45.:02:47.

hours of Sunday morning, but died earlier today. A postmortem

:02:48.:02:53.

examination will now take place to establish how she died. A

:02:54.:02:56.

27`year`old man has been arrested and is being questioned by the

:02:57.:02:59.

police. A man has been charged with arson

:03:00.:03:03.

and endangering the lives of almost 1,000 fellow passengers on a North

:03:04.:03:07.

Sea ferry. Six people were winched to safety after the fire late on

:03:08.:03:11.

Saturday night just off the Yorkshire coast. 26`year`old Boden

:03:12.:03:17.

Hughes has been charged with arson and affray.

:03:18.:03:23.

Prison inspectors say there aren't enough medical staff at Lincoln

:03:24.:03:26.

Prison to properly meet inmates' health needs. The jail was inspected

:03:27.:03:29.

by the Care Quality Commission in November. The report also

:03:30.:03:32.

highlighted concerns about the way prisoners had to queue to get

:03:33.:03:41.

medication. The Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Trust says it's been

:03:42.:03:44.

working with the prison governor to make improvements.

:03:45.:03:47.

Now I'm sure the Christmas leftovers have gone by now, but one company in

:03:48.:03:50.

East Yorkshire is working flat out to do it on an industrial scale.

:03:51.:03:55.

Brocklesby in Brough converts old cooking oil and waste food into

:03:56.:04:05.

biodiesel and biofuels. It's one of only a handful of factories in the

:04:06.:04:09.

country but it's already a growing industry. Sarah Walton reports.

:04:10.:04:12.

It's not the most appetising sight, but this is what's left over when

:04:13.:04:15.

you cook large amounts of meat. Now, it's getting a new lease of life. We

:04:16.:04:23.

take a range of products from food manufacturers and retailers across

:04:24.:04:26.

the UK and Ireland ranging from oils recovered from rotisseries within

:04:27.:04:29.

the supermarkets, right through to oils recovered from frying pans at

:04:30.:04:32.

crisp manufacturers to produce a biofuel. We use a lot of steam to

:04:33.:04:35.

heat our products and then centifruges to spin out any

:04:36.:04:38.

impurities, to leave a very refined oil. Here in the control room, you

:04:39.:04:44.

can see computers monitoring the reactors. Now, they process about

:04:45.:04:50.

10,000 tonnes of food waste and 50,000 tonnes of oil every year, and

:04:51.:04:53.

are operating 24/7, even through Christmas and the New Year. But

:04:54.:04:59.

while they deal with industrial waste here, we're all being asked to

:05:00.:05:02.

think carefully about leftovers. Earlier this year, fat washed down

:05:03.:05:05.

people's sinks formed the biggest blockage ever found in London

:05:06.:05:13.

sewers, weighing 16 tonnes. Back at the factory, tankers arrive to

:05:14.:05:16.

collect the final product ` 55 million litres of biofuel a year.

:05:17.:05:26.

This goes into diesel cars and lorries. Biofuel is blended with

:05:27.:05:30.

diesel and would be part of the blend you would get at a supermarket

:05:31.:05:34.

or a filling station around the country. It's a dirty job, but

:05:35.:05:39.

biofuel production is a growing industry, and there's hope more

:05:40.:05:42.

companies will start work, turning brown sludge into green fuel.

:05:43.:05:54.

Let's move to sport now, and Scunthorpe United extended their

:05:55.:05:57.

unbeaten run to seven games after beating Oxford United 2`0 yesterday.

:05:58.:06:00.

The Iron now start the new year joint top of the table in League Two

:06:01.:06:03.

on points, just behind Chesterfield on goal difference. Simon Spark

:06:04.:06:05.

reports. It took Scunthorpe united 11 minutes

:06:06.:06:09.

before a cross from Marcus Williams landed perfectly on the head of Deon

:06:10.:06:13.

Burton. This was Burton's fourth goal in as many games for the Iron,

:06:14.:06:17.

and the gap could have been widened, but the chance of a penalty after a

:06:18.:06:21.

handball from Oxford United's Deane Smalley wasn't to be. Instead, the

:06:22.:06:25.

Iron's second goal would come from David Syers in a much better second

:06:26.:06:29.

half. Oxford's best chance came when goalkeeper Sam Slocombe received a

:06:30.:06:32.

yellow card for this foul against James Constable, but managed to

:06:33.:06:35.

correctly predict a save to stop Dean Smalley's attempt. This victory

:06:36.:06:42.

puts them second in the table to Chesterfield with only goal

:06:43.:06:45.

difference between them. A joint top start to the new year.

:06:46.:06:51.

Some of Tom Huddlestone's hair, which was cut off after he scored

:06:52.:06:55.

for Hull City at the weekend, is being auctioned for charity. The

:06:56.:07:00.

midfielder scored his first goal in two`and`a half years against Fulham

:07:01.:07:09.

at the weekend. After scoring for Tottenham in 2011, he pledged to

:07:10.:07:12.

raise money for charity by not cutting his hair until he next found

:07:13.:07:15.

the net. There have been strong winds across

:07:16.:07:18.

much of our region today. This was the scene at Kilnsea in East

:07:19.:07:21.

Yorkshire where high winds battered the coast. Elsewhere 48 mile an hour

:07:22.:07:25.

winds were recored at RAF Scamton, while gusts topped 50 miles an hour

:07:26.:07:27.

in Bridlington and 53 at Donna Nook. Good evening. Well, as the wet and

:07:28.:07:34.

blustery weather front today clears away, it's drier and clearer for

:07:35.:07:37.

much of the night. Cloud thickens up again later. Might see one or two

:07:38.:07:41.

showers sneaking in to the west by the end of the night. Four Celsius,

:07:42.:07:52.

your overnight low. A breeze already starting to pick up. Those showers

:07:53.:07:55.

become more widespread tomorrow morning. Eventually, there'll be a

:07:56.:07:59.

more persistent band of rain spreading from the west, late

:08:00.:08:01.

morning, early afternoon, although most places do dry up again by the

:08:02.:08:06.

end of the day with a bit of brightness. Fresher than today,

:08:07.:08:08.

maybe not as windy, temperatures peaking at nine Celsius in Lincoln.

:08:09.:08:11.

That's 48 Fahrenheit. If you're out and about tomorrow night bringing in

:08:12.:08:15.

the New Year, most places should have some dry weather, still breezy,

:08:16.:08:18.

maybe just the odd shower somewhere like Sheffield, and then if you're

:08:19.:08:21.

out and about on New Year's Day itself, well, the next band of wet

:08:22.:08:25.

and windy weather spreads in from the west, through the course of the

:08:26.:08:29.

day, before we're back to brighter spells and blustery showers on

:08:30.:08:30.

Thursday. Bye for Another day off strong winds, heavy

:08:31.:08:43.

rain and flooding. At least things are quiet at the moment. The rain

:08:44.:08:47.

has cleared off and the wind is lighter. There might be some ice in

:08:48.:08:52.

Scotland, but through the night the wind picks up, lifting temperatures,

:08:53.:08:59.

but more heavy rain pushing in. The rain band is not quite a significant

:09:00.:09:04.

us today, but it will leave surface water flooding. Some heavy bursts

:09:05.:09:07.

clearing Northern Ireland by first
